“I Didn’t Quit Drinking to Get High On Hope and Change”

Charles Winecoff at Big Hollywood writes of addiction, recovery, and Obamunism.

I didn’t get sober to continue living in a dreamworld of perpetual denial and fantasy, the way I did for most of my life. Being a drunk is a lot like being a liberal – and I was both – always hiding from reality, making childish excuses, blaming other people for my shortcomings. But with time, and patience, my Higher Power revealed to me something unexpected: the common-sense sunshine of the conservative spirit.

Interesting analogy; Big Government liberalism as substance abuse. Is our country addicted to massive levels of government welfare spending and social engineering. The mayo clinic provides a list of symptoms of addiction. How do these relate to liberalism?

Our children are getting pissed off with our addictions.

Feeling that you have to use the drug regularly — this can be daily or even several times a day: Combined state and federal welfare spending $1.5 Billion a day, and rising. Any suggestion that spending be reduced is vigorously resisted.

Failing in your attempts to stop using the drug: Entitlement spending was reduced, briefly, by welfare reforms in the 1990’s. Since the Democrats took Congress in 2007, spending on welfare programs has massively expanded.

Making certain that you maintain a supply of the drug: As stated, any attempt to reduce welfare spending is vigorously resisted.

Spending money on the drug even though you can’t afford it: The current National Debt is over ten trillion dollars and will more than double under Obama-Pelosi-Reid.

Doing things to obtain the drug that you normally wouldn’t do, such as stealing: Like mortgaging the lives of the next two generations in order to expand welfare spending under ObamaCare.

Feeling that you need the drug to deal with your problems: Expecting people to become self-reliant is regarded by advocates of Big Government as “unrealistic” and “uncompassionate.”

Driving or doing other risky activities when you’re under the influence of the drug
: Or, completely neglecting border security and ignoring a rising threat of nuclear terrorism in order to focus on expanding the welfare state.

Focusing more and more time and energy on getting and using the drug: Like, shoving aside all other congressional business in order to create a massive, unaffordable health care entitlement.

The USA, and the Democrat party especially, are addicted to big government welfare programs. There are only two options: Get of the smack, or keep doing it until our country dies.

    *Believing that if you can just get one more awesome hit of the drug, that ultimate hit, it will give you the energy you need to quit and solve all your problems:* Joe Biden justifying Porkulus and $1.5 trillion deficits by saying, “We’ve Got To Spend Money So We Don’t Go Bankrupt”.

    Or my lunch-table-liberal friends telling me, “The deficits will buy us the time we need to solve our other problems.”

    ”Being a drunk is a lot like being a liberal . . .”

    Well, considering all of the Leftist ”babes” one would have to drink if one was a Liberal.
