What's Wrong with Democrats

Hello, this is Irwin J. McIckleson, Fictional 1920s Plutocrat. I have just finished reading an article by Michael Medved about what is wrong with the Democrats, and I have to say it has caused me to rethink my former opinions on future Republicans. I had come to the conclusion that you were all dunderheads for supporting a nincompoop like President Bush, but perhaps I judged you falsely.

Medved discusses how the Liberals, your rivals, are obsessed with helping the underdogs.
The rhetoric of today’s left shows that they see society divided between the privileged and the powerless, the favored and the unfortunate, victors and victims.

Liberals feel an irresistible instinct to take sides with the less fortunate.

While the right wants to reward beneficial choices and discourage destructive directions, the left seeks to eliminate or reduce the impact of the disadvantages that result from bad decisions. In place of the conservative emphasis on accountability, the left proffers a gospel of indiscriminate compassion.
I have encountered that underdogism my whole life and I find it discouraging and distressing. While there are racial injustices that strike me as senseless, in general the poor of America and throughout the world are poor because they are stupid, lazy, or of inferior genetic material. Medved is absolutely right to point out that spending time worrying about societies falures is not just a waste of time. It is actively destructive towards the economy and the morality of a society. Those who choose poverty should be punished for their choices such that if they do not change their ways, becoming productive, they are eliminated from the gene pool.

I realize that this sounds harsh and un-Christian but nothing could be further from the truth. The truth is that those who are unable or unwilling to successfully compete in our culture should be exploited as much as possible and then shuffled off to heaven where, if I remember what Pastor Fredericks said, they will be embraced by Jesus and sent to a place of everlasting wonder. Let them go there, and not clutter up the world for those of us who have the will and the genetic fiber to succeed! In that way they will not breed and their inferior genetic material will go with them to their grave rather than infecting another generation.

And I am pleased to know that future conservatives see the wisdom in abandoning the poor and the "underdogs" to their fates. If they have sufficient genetic and moral fiber they can become overdogs. If they do not, than society doesn't need them anyway.
