Largen gets it wrong again, says writer

-A A +A

It is not the Republicans but the current administration which is trying to undo over a century of national progress and advancement.
Our great country was founded on principles and traditions that conservatives strongly believe in, and in the last two years, we have seen an overwhelming effort to shuffle these to the back of the bus declaring that a more liberal progressive agenda is now the norm in this nation.
America needs to open its eyes to what is happening under the leadership of these liberals who consider increasing the size of government a whopping 25 percent as progress?
And Largen calls those who want to enforce the correct interpretation of the 14th amendment as having “diseased” minds? Then he refers to the attitude of conservatives as being like that found in Hitler’s mind.
What happened to Obama’s call for “civility?” The 14th Amendment to the Constitution can be interpreted to exclude granting citizenship to babies born to illegals.
Liberals call it progress when more illegals can be drafted into the voting block for Democrats! And since Largen does not think our country is broke, America must have plenty of funds to provide benefits to these illegals.
The so-called Dream Act was a “Trojan horse” that would have added billions to our deficit if passed. Our country is in crisis and the spending has to stop.
And Largen thinks unions are looking out for the working class? Why are major companies locating to states that have “right-to-work” laws? Because the workers profit as well as the companies and it creates more jobs.
Only 7 percent of America’s private workers are unionized, but about 30 percent of state and local government workers are unionized.
Several states across our nation are faced with massive deficits that are driven by wages and pensions of government workers, whose pay and retirement now exceed the private sector by a significant amount (about 30 percent).
No wonder Wisconsin is calling for public unions to bear part of the burden the state faces, and by the way, Largen failed to mention that Wisconsin public unions will still retain their bargaining rights for wages and salaries, not to mention the fact that policemen and firefighters are exempt from the bill that will eventually pass.
And Largen defines a liberal as “favorable to or in accord with concepts of maximum individual freedom possible, esp. as guaranteed by law and secured by governmental protection of civil liberties?” So how does Largen respond when Obama (who deemed it unconstitutional) has just told his Justice Department that they will no longer defend a law passed by the Congress — the Defense of Marriage Act defining marriage as between a man and woman?
Does the President of the United States get to decide which laws he will defend and which he will not?
One of the reasons for formation of the Tea Parties was to restore our civil liberties that are being trampled on by this liberal administration. I agree with Largen that “birds of a feather flock together” so when Obama surrounds  himself with Marxist zealots like Cass Sunstein (Regulatory Czar), John Holdren (Science Czar) and Carol Browning (Energy and Climate Change Czar), the outcome cannot be good.
