With every holiday and meeting with people you only see a few times a year comes the unsaid expectation from them for some sort of apology for being a publicly affirmed Republican conservative in all the traditional ways possible. They expect you to apologize for supporting a mother in the home with the children, to find welfare disgusting, and to endorse every failure known to human endeavor with a valueless live and let live acceptance of total failure. The game the way that liberals and so called “fence sitters” play it is that if you are going to be a conservative and insist on voting for someone like Donald Trump, that you’ll keep it to yourself. Nobody is supposed to make their thoughts about politics known to the public. So for me, as a very committed conservative who has this blog and has written books, hosted radio broadcasts and even done television and put myself out there in sometimes audacious ways, comes with it a stigma that I owe them something, which of course I don’t. The best part of Memorial Day for me this year was that Rush Limbaugh hosted his own program without a substitute and that I had time to listen to him the entire three hours in the garage as I opened the pool for the year. It was a blissful day because I normally don’t get much time to listen to him throughout a typical week day due to the many professional engagements that require my attention. The broadcast I enjoyed on Memorial Day can be found at the below video presentation in case you missed it or are coming to this article many years in the future, like so many of my readers do, sometimes a decade later once they’ve grown up and become wiser, and understand that if they had listened to me ten or twenty years ago, they would have had a much better life.
Listening to that broadcast reminded me of something I had been thinking about a lot lately. I don’t need Rush Limbaugh to explain it to me, but it is nice to hear that someone else understands these things. As I have said before, the Democrat Party is filled with people functioning from some sort of mental handicap, which doesn’t mean they are throw away people. But in their current state of liberalism they are not complete people whereas conservatives, (not all Republicans) are further along in understanding the nature of the world. There is a reason that America is the most powerful superpower in the world. There is a reason that the world wants to storm our borders while other countries couldn’t give away a seat into their nations. There is a reason that that some things and some people are better than others. And the way President Trump sells his role of leadership to other countries shows that his brand of conservatism isn’t just for show, like most American presidents have been, or leader in Congress. Trump understands that the keys to human happiness is to encourage people and nations to function above the line and to reject any part of their natures which is below the line.
I was indifferent to the game of golf for most of my life. My dad no fault of his used to have me caddy for him and that really turned me off to the game, because I have always been a leader. If I’m not the star of the show, I’m not very interested in whatever is going on. I don’t typically get in the way of other people being the star of the show. I usually leave it to them and get on with something that requires my talents as an exclusive leader. And caddying in golf wasn’t my thing. But now I’m at an age where I have lots of reasons to do it. I have arrived in a place in life where playing that game is kind of unavoidable if you want to talk the language that people of a certain nature understand. And those certain kinds of people often have in common a yearning for above the line behavior. Golf and the country clubs that come with them have in common a focus on above the line approaches to life, which is summed up in the game of golf itself. You start with a driver to see how close to the objective you can get. Then each swing of a golf club is designed to get you closer to that moment of precision that you get the ball in the hole with careful thought, patience, power, and precision. And the whole game is played on immaculately landscaped courses that remind the player that the good things in life are well managed. The trees are trimmed well. The grass is always nicely cut. And the people playing the game are expected to dress well and treat each other in an above the line way. I appreciate the game much, much more than I used to which is also why poor people and lazy people (usually synonymous with each other) aren’t also playing. I don’t mind carrying my own clubs, but having a caddy is much more of my nature than being one to say the least.
Trump as I’ve watched him over the years, I think grew into a great president not only from marrying a good woman in Melania, but in steering his business from casinos more into golf courses. His business focus certainly seems to have shifted his personal philosophies into this very above the line person. For instance, during the days where he was a known playboy and appearing on the Howard Stern Show, those were very below the lines ways of thinking, and he clearly wasn’t ready to be president. But these days, a decade later, he has changed into wanting everything he does to be above the line, and life in the White House has been very conducive toward that objective. And his interaction on international affairs is just as Rush Limbaugh pointed out at the start of his broadcast, Trump wants to help every nation to become better, in much the way that going golfing has a silent hope that everyone does well on the course because the experience of playing is to enjoy the above the line nature of it.
Where Democrats and liberals of all degrees of that political philosophy go wrong is that they insist to keep the world into a victimized state so their direction for running everything is very below the line. No human being can hope to ever be really happy when their focus within their own existence is to keep their minds on below the line behavior—otherwise a victimized status. And that is the heart of why family get togethers at holidays is so awkward. If you are living an above the line life, and most everyone else is looking for an excuse as to why they are failures, then there is nothing you can say that can make them feel better about what they are doing. In every family there are always a few members who are drowning in below the line behavior and they look to you as a life raft to save them but only under their terms. And on the national and international stage the rules are the same. People functioning below the line want company in their misery so they have started all these dumb rules of compliance. Good above the line Republicans don’t feel the need to rub people’s face in rival opinions so they are vulnerable to aggression which mostly comes from below the line people, Yet I disagree with that approach so I won’t be apologizing. And I don’t feel even the slightest temptation to do so. It is the task of everyone to take themselves above the line. Not for us to endorse their bad behavior by stepping below. And those are how the new rules of the game will be played, and Trump is the perfect president to bring that above, and I will not apologize for any of that. Ever.
