Letter to the Editor
Rush Limbaugh, the intellectual leader of the Party of Bush, says that it’s OK to want Obama to fail because Democrats wanted Bush to fail. Did Democrats want Bush to fail? Absolutely! Does that make it the same thing? Absolutely not! Even though it’s true on the surface that the Democrats fought against Bush the way Rush is fighting Obama, there is a big difference and that difference is reality.
Many of us on the Left believe in an absolute reality. We believe reality actually exists. Many of us are monorealistic in that we believe in the one true reality that we all live in. That we live in a world where what is true is different than what is false. We believe in cause and effect. We believe that if you make the wrong choices that you are likely to suffer the consequences.
Many on the Right don’t believe in an absolute reality. They think reality is all in the mind and that the consequences of your actions don’t matter. They believe that if you convince enough people to believe something that it replaces reality. For the last 8 years we had a president who turned his back on reality and reality is now punishing us for our sins. We are learning the hard way that bad choices have bad consequences. America has elected a new president who is dedicated to embracing reality and making reality our friend. There is a difference between right and wrong, between failure and success, and we have chosen to do it right and succeed. We Realists invite the Republicans to join us in embracing reality. Be part of the solution, not part of the problem. Reality changed my life, it can change your life too!
