It might seem excessive to invoke a term as a harsh as "bankrupt" to characterize the nature of the modern Democrat Party, and thus it is a tall order to defend that descriptor. Yet from the opening pages of his new book to its close, best-selling author David Limbaugh incontrovertibly makes just such a case.
With the depth of thoroughness for which he has become well known (he has previously authored two best-sellers), he pursues an all-encompassing examination of the blinding lust for power that totally consumes the American left. This latest work affords the reader with not only an insightful current analysis of today's Democrats, but the scope of research with which it is written will make this book a veritable library of resource material for years to come.
In what may have been a valiant effort to avert disaster by forewarning the public as to the dangers it would face in the hands of a Democrat-controlled Congress, Bankrupt: The Intellectual and Moral Bankruptcy of Today's Democratic Party was released a few months prior to the election. Of course America did not listen, and the country now faces at least two years of languishing in the "wilderness" under the corrosive influence of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
Yet, far from rendering this work futile, the current grim circumstances cause the importance of reading Limbaugh's book to be more, and not less of a necessity.
Though America would not heed his clarion call, the gravity of the consequences about which he forewarned make it essential to thoroughly understand the dark, liberal forces that now dominate our nation's government. In order for conscientious Americans with heartfelt concerns for the country and its future to be intellectually armed, this book is an absolute must.
During the past few days, the nightly news has been replete with alarming stories regarding the possible pursuit of Democrats' radical and unquestioningly leftist ideology, followed shortly by the total refutation of any intention to implement those policies. In some cases, the necessity for "damage control" has been so acute that notable Democrat mouthpieces are being employed to counter any claims of an ultra-liberal agenda being promoted by the Democrats.
None other than Nancy Pelosi herself has had to officially deny rumors that the Democrat-controlled Congress will now press forward with plans to impeach the President. Ditto for "cut and run," threats of reinstituting the draft, and Hillary's twisted dreams of socialized "health care." The number of such proposals that have been floated in the past few days, only to be hastily renounced and abandoned, is truly surprising. But it is also revealing.
Democrats are slowly coming to the painful realization that being an opposition party, which merely catcalls and criticizes those who are actually governing, is far easier than being a leadership party that must formulate and implement ideas, and which is henceforth held accountable for them. For the past several years, Democrats have basked in the luxury of "Monday morning quarterbacking," without ever needing to present substantive alternatives to the Republican actions they relentlessly attack.
With seemingly prophetic accuracy, David Limbaugh made his case prior to the elections that this is exactly the realm in which the Democrat Party operates. Yet his insight was not the product of political clairvoyance, but rather the result of a meticulous case built from an enormous and thoroughly researched database of Democrat commentary.
By their own words, Limbaugh establishes the Democrat Party as a cabal of political animals, devoid of any interest other than their own advancement within the power structure of government.
Admittedly it is a severe indictment, but one which he willingly and capably supports. From the terror war, to the decimation of the courts (and thus, the Constitution), to the manipulation of the electorate through such abominable means as "race baiting," Limbaugh portrays a Democrat Party with the potential to inflict enormous harm on the nation.
And this is by no means a comprehensive list. The topics mentioned here give but a glimpse into the wealth of information and analysis contained in Bankrupt.
Hopefully, a sufficient number of Americans will read his book and become informed as to the dangers they face in the hands of the upcoming Congress. Only by so doing can the disastrous consequences of shortsighted and self-serving behavior, now the core of the modern Democrat Party, be averted.
Perhaps, if enough people become so informed, and word gets out to a sufficient degree between now and 2008, the advancement of liberalism through abominable and fraudulent tactics can be stopped in its tracks in the next election, and thereby neutralized for the foreseeable future.
The "earthquake" that engulfed Capitol Hill after Election Day, and the current resulting chaos and confusion that is the "new order" there, clearly proves the Democrats to be Bankrupt of any worthy guiding principles. For a comprehensive education as to what is really going on within the bowels of the Democrat Party, David Limbaugh's Bankrupt is essential reading.
