Many people say that George W. Bush's Presidency will be considered a failure in history books because of his botched handling of the Iraq war or his lack of interest in selling the war to the American public once the initial objective of toppling Saddam Hussein was accomplished. After all, the Iraq war is the number one burning issue of his Presidency in news media coverage and in the minds of the Democratic Party inquisition.
But history has a way of sitting back and looking at deeper fundamentals and deeper causes. And history will surely see George W. Bush as sabotaging himself and his Republican Party by virtue of his inconsistency. Bush has mixed liberalism into his conservatism and conservatism into his liberalism, so the contradictory influences within himself have balanced out, leaving him ineffective.
The philosophies of governance being touted and implemented by modern day "liberals" and "progressives" will always fail because they are based on false premises. The Democratic Party credo of using deadly government force to redistribute wealth is the same principle that parasites live by. "I'll live off you until you no longer have any strength, then we'll both end up dying. But boy, while I did live I gloried in the power!" False premise: you can be a parasite off producers without eliminating producers. "Liberals" and "Progressives" can ruin countries, but they cannot make countries healthier.
"Conservatives," perhaps feeling pain as if they are victims of the parasite principle, are known for moaning: "It's not government's job to redistribute wealth."
But libertarians, seeing clearly it's their life that's being eaten away by government, strongly react: "It is immoral to use deadly government force for any reason except against those who are initiating force or fraud (i.e., criminals, foreign terrorists, and sometimes governments).
So for 2008 on the heals of Bush's failures we see two new American heroes emerging in the Republican Party: Ron Paul, extremely popular because of his libertarian views; and Mitt Romney, gaining tremendous popularity because of his deeply common sense conservatism and managerial genius.
These two must increase while Giuliani, McCain, and Thompson must decrease. It appears Republicans are finished for all time with half and half candidates. The Republican Party is craving consistency.
Here is what Jesus Christ teaches in his revelation for the 21st Century, A Course in Miracles, about your relationship to the Holy Spirit's consistency.
It seems to you that the Holy Spirit does not produce joy consistently in you, only because you do not consistently arouse joy in others. Their reactions to you are your evaluations of His consistency. When you are inconsistent, you will not always give rise to joy, and so you will not always recognize Him consistency. What you offer to your brother, you offer to Him, because He cannot go beyond your offering in His giving. This is not because He limits His giving, but simply because you have limited your receiving.
