Value the Individual?

Just a quick thought (which I darn near posted by accident on Little Miss Attila's site, which I had guest blogged on way back). How did the Democratic Party become the party of abortion, the party that demeans Christian religion, the party that is weak on defense and security, the party that supports gay marriage, the party that supports the rights of illegal aliens and criminals, and the party of hate?

Tell me I am wrong, but I have come to the conclusion that the Democratic Party puts the individual over the group, whether that group be the family, the community, or the Country. It is all about the individual to them, no matter what harm that does to the group. Now, do not misunderstand me, individual Rights are important. But the Dems have put the Rights of the Individual above any and all rights of the group. Half the time, it seems as if the Dems have forgotten that groups have Rights, too. If one person doesn't like the Pledge of Allegience being spoken in a school, but the rest like it, whose side do you think the Left takes? It is rather sad, and the Democratic stance destroys the group, from the family, to the Church, to the town, to the Country.

Are we really better as an individual when the group is fragmented and destroyed? Man is a social animal, who depends on bonds to others. All this "me, me, me" severs those bonds, weakening the whole. The Dems have come a long way from "Ask not what your Country can do for you, but what you can do for your Country."

Hey Teach...I hate to correct ya on something but "the party that supports the rights of illegal aliens and criminals" The RINOs have done this too, INCLUDING GW, whom I voted for.

They are both parties to that hypocracy my friend :)

won't disagree with you on that point, Firewolf. But, as a whole, the GOP pushes for family, community, Country, while the Dems look for the individual above all else.

Good theory at first, but negated by the opposite being true in a different respect. Repubs, at least subliminally, see each person as a unique, irreplaceable individual. Dems see all people as members of interest groups. That's why you never hear Repubs say "black community," "gay community," "Martian community," or whatever. Dems keep campaigning as if people see themSELVES as interchangeable members of groups, which is why they keep losing.

Dem leadership is stuck in an intellectual adolescence: they all act just alike, in an attempt to express their individuality. And they superimpose that model on everyone and everything else. They are not truly capable of dealing with the concept of the individual--reference their treatment of African American conservatives, such as Condi. Pardon the French, but they're like plantation owners upset over their house nigger getting uppity. Shameless, shameful, and pathetic.

Let me try to clarify a bit. There is no doubt that the GOP values a person's individuality. But they do care for the group more then the individual. An individuals rights are important, but, not to the extent that it brings down the group.

The Dems, though, only care how the individuals rights will play. The individuals rights trump the groups rights. If it comes down to protecting the right of someone to speak out in a way that harms the USA, the dems will come out always in favor of hurting the USA.
