This Thanksgiving, Liberals Have Much To Be Thankful For
As millions of the nation’s liberals sit down to their Thanksgiving dinners this year, they will have much to be thankful for. While they are probably still lamenting the painful results of the midterm elections, that shouldn’t stop them from celebrating how much they’ve accomplished over the last few years. After all, they have nearly succeeded in transforming America into the progressive paradise they always envisioned!
It’s unclear to whom they will direct their gratitude, since it certainly won’t be God. Obama, maybe? Carl Sagan? Karl Marx? Who knows. But if they do spare a moment to count their blessings, the list will be long.
Women can give thanks for the ability to have an abortion covered by the government! You’ve come a long way, baby! Liberals of all sexes and races can thank the government for the rise of Obamacare, without which they might have to get a job. Illegals, of course, have plenty to be thankful for. They no longer have to “hide in the shadows,” after all. They took a gamble in avoiding pesky American laws on immigration and it paid off! That’s worth a second helping of pumpkin pie.
Ok, But Seriously
This is a dark way to look at the state of the country, of course, and I do so with tongue planted firmly in cheek. The truth is that conservatives have much to be thankful for as well. The country is perhaps not on the best possible track, but that’s politics as usual. Most true conservatives know that God’s blessings are abundant even when times are tough. We are thankful for the power to enact change in our own lives. We are thankful for our natural talents in whatever field they lie. We are thankful for family, friends, and life itself.
America may not be all that we wished it could be right now, but you don’t have to look far to see how much worse it could be. Even with liberalism out of control, there’s nowhere else on Earth I would rather live. Spare a moment to think of people suffering in Iraq, Syria, and elsewhere around the globe where any day could bring death and destruction from Islamic extremism. Be thankful you are not among them. Be thankful that we have a country willing to stand against atrocity.
The future of America is uncertain, but the future is always uncertain. Every day, we will continue to fight against socialism, liberalism, and the threatening philosophies that want to change the country into something it was never meant to be. And that’s all we can do. Spread the message. You’ll never convert a staunch liberal, but you can certainly convert an undecided independent. You can certainly convert a teenager. Teach through example. Show the values of hard work, discipline, and individualism. When demonstrated correctly, the tenets of conservatism never fail to inspire. This Thursday, let’s be thankful for what we have.
