“Coach” Dave Daubenmire is fed up with the Republican party and says it’s time to form a new Christian Values Party, which I strongly encourage him and all of his fellow bigots and wingnuts to do. But he begins with this cartoonish understanding of Hegel:
Like so many others, I have been warning for quite some time that the Republican Party is a fraud. I began to see through the facade about a dozen years ago.
The American political world is a two-card Monte. The Hegelian Dialectic calls it “thesis/anti-thesis”. In a nutshell, the Hegelian Dialectic is a process whereby the ends are played against the middle.
And this is why universities don’t let uneducated football coaches teach in their philosophy departments.
If we want to save this nation, we must engage in the political debate with unashamed, Christian values. The Republicans mouth the values, but they don’t truly believe in them. Do John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and the Republican leadership exemplify and codify into law Biblical values? Of course not! Why do we elect Republicans to be the standard bearers of Christian beliefs? Why don’t we start electing openly Christian officials who will unashamedly fight for Christian values?
Who speaks for you, Mr. Christian? Who puts the Gospel at the top of their platform, Mrs. Christian? Karl Rove? Chris Christie? Jeb Bush? Why do we expect them to support principles they themselves do not believe in? To the Republicans, Christians are nothing more than a voting block (or should I say, stumbling block?).A strong Christian values party with unashamed Christian leaders would draw from many different constituencies. Blacks are Christians. Whites are Christians. The young are Christians. The elderly are Christians. We must help them realize that only Christ and His precepts can ultimately bring true liberty. A nation cannot survive without a clear standard of right and wrong…
The Tea Party has shown that grassroots activism can work, but the impact will be diminished if we cast our lot with the leadership of McConnell, Boehner and their ilk. A Christian Party would force the RINOS to compromise with us.
It is time for the Tea Party to stop catering to the libertarians. Let’s put Jesus and His values at the top of the ticket, and unashamedly stand for the God we claim to serve.
I think this is a magnificent idea. You should run with it, Dave. And tell all your friends.
