A Mental Disorder

Years ago, talk show host, Michael Savage, wrote a book called “Liberalism Is a Mental Disorder.” While I don’t entirely disagree with his premise, I’m beginning to think it is more of an infectious disease and that conservatives are falling victim to the disorder as well, though maybe displaying slightly different symptoms.

Consider this:

Every election, conservatives, and in particular, Republicans, will put up several candidates who for the most part could be considered outstanding conservatives, yet, who gets elected? The person who is about as close to the liberal side of the fence that you can get.

Let’s take a look a three specific elections that will exemplify what I’m saying the best:

  • The 2006 Illinois Republican Primary: You had Jim Oberweis, Bill Brady, Judy Barr-Topinks, Ron Gidwidtz, and Andy Martin. The order of conservatism from most to least (in my opinion) was Bill Brady, Jim Oberweis, Ron Gidwidtz, Andy Martin, and then Judy Barr-Topinka. Now doubt, Topinka was the worse and yet she was the one elected. In fact, I believe she was actually more liberal than Blagojevich and you know where he is right now.
  • The 2012 Republican Presidential Primary: While there were almost 20 candidates at some point or another, you had Bachmann, Cain, Gingrich, Huntsman, Paul, Perry, Romney, Santorum. While I’m not going to try to discuss the order of conservatism among these.) , suffice to say, “It wasn’t the most conservative that got elected.” In fact, in my opinion, the worst of them all got elected.
  • The 2014 Illinois Republican Primary: You had Bill Brady (for the 3rd time), Kirk Dillard, Bruce Rauner, and Dan Rutherford. While there was certainly some competition for who was the most liberal, Rauner won the primary.

While there were certainly others, these are probably the most in your face examples. Now here’s the deal… Every time the most (or almost most) liberal candidate gets elected by the “conservative” party, there’s the same old song and dance:

  • “Topinka wasn’t our first choice, but she won and she is better than Blagojevich.”
  • “Romney wasn’t our first pick, but he is better than Obama.”
  • “Rauner wasn’t the best choice, but he is better than Quinn.”

And let’s look at what happens shortly after the election, Bill Brady who was Pro-Life, Pro-Family, Pro-2nd Amendment, not only supported Topinka, but endorsed her – a person who was(is) pro-choice, pro-homosexual, pro-gun-control; the complete antithesis to the important principles he said that he stood for.

Each and every time that the worst possible candidate for the conservatives gets elected, conservatives kowtow to supporting the worst possible choices that their parties could give them and then come up with the same old song and dance about why they have to support them.

I hear it EVERY election. So all I can deduce from this repetitive nature is that: Liberalism is an infectious disease and now Conservatism is a mental disorder as well.

Benjamin Franklin (or was it Einstein? Does it really matter?) said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results.”
