Liz Warren Panders as George Washington Spins Over

To say that first President and Father of the Country George Washington was prescient and prophetic when it came to understanding the devastating effects that political parties would have on the health of our republic, would be the pinnacle of an understatement.

In his sagacious and breathtakingly astute Farewell Address, he wrote,

[T]he common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it.

And what were those mischiefs? Washington believed that the growth and development of parties would lead inevitably to a system of government not for the whole, but for the faction.

The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty.

In other words, this “chief” would begin acting not in the country’s best interest, but in the best interest of himself – which would obviously be to serve the wishes and wants of the faction that got him elected, even if such service is detrimental to the liberty of the people at large.

It’s astounding to compare the cautionary advice Washington is giving to the current realities of American politics. All I’m really left to wonder is whether or not George actual saw a vision of Elizabeth Warren in his mind’s eye or not.

After all, if you are looking for the height of political pandering to a small faction simply for person gain, even as the goals and objectives of that faction threaten the liberties of the larger whole, look no further than Warren’s recent statement to the LGBT community:

First of all, take the wide view of this statement from about 30 miles out in philosophical space, and tell me it isn’t at least somewhat humorous to see a supposedly well-educated person using all these meaningless, made-up, Klingon-like terms: cis women, gender-nonconforming, non-binary? Hilarious. This isn’t erasing or trivializing people to say so, mind you. It’s erasing and trivializing phony words we have invented merely to accommodate those who, for whatever reason, believe rebelling against nature and reality brings peace.

But secondly, and more importantly, saying that “Black trans and cis women, gender-nonconforming, and nonbinary people are the backbone of our democracy?” Can we even say with certainty that a majority of Warren’s own political party truly agrees with the proposition that saying you are a certain gender necessarily makes you that gender, even if biology disagrees?

Are we confident that the percentage of people who truly believe all that anti-science are anywhere near a majority of the population, no less the “backbone of our democracy?” This is pandering of the highest order.

Yet, assuming that Warren is speaking only to the tiniest fraction of Americans who actually believe the transgender narrative, recognize that should she get the nomination, nearly 60 million people are almost guaranteed to vote for her.

Not because she’s representing the country. Not because she’s supporting the thoughts of the majority. Not because she’s acting in a way that is consistent with the preservation of the people’s individual liberty. They’ll vote for her because she’s a Democrat. And before the right gets too puffed up, they might consider why they’ll be voting for her opponent.

If you’re yet to realize it, George Washington was a smart dude. We should have listened.
