Conservative Elite's Majoritarian Collectivism got Democrats Elected

Cross-Reference: 2006 election, Republicans, true conservatism

Having embraced the anti-republican concept of majoritarian collectivism, such as pushing a big government marriage control amendment, the conservative elite had become democrats themselves - thereby causing the inevitability of the actual Democrat Party re-taking the majority in the 2006 election.

Majoritarian   collectivism   –   raw   democracy   –   is   the   unconstitutional   tyranny   of   "two   wolves   and   one   sheep   voting   on   what   to   have   for   dinner."     True   conservatives   view   government's   role   as   providing   for   the   protection   of   Individuals'   rights   –   constitutional   republicanism   –   even   from   majoritarian   tyranny.     In   times   past,   when   the   GOP   was   in   the   Congressional   minority,   the   conservative   elite   used   to   remember   that   important   republican   axiom   of   limited   government.     But   during   their   newly-obtained   majority   between   1994   and   2006,   they   transformed   into   majoritarian   collectivists   themselves.     By   becoming   such   democrats,   it   was   undoubtedly   inevitable   that   the   actual   Democrat   Party   would   re-take   the   Congressional   majorities   –   as   occurred   in   the   November   7,   2006   election. 
Ignoring   true   conservative   voices,   the   conservative   elite's   "sickness"   was   manifest   -   symptoms   abounded. 
On   September   29,   2006,   Rep.   Mark   Foley   was   outed   –   and   resigned   -   for   sending   salacious   homosexual   messages   to   underaged   male   congressional   pages.       Moreover,   potential   GOP-leadership   cover-up   in   that   case   was   also   implicated,   further   staining   the   whole   Party. 
By   October   15,   2006,   David   Kuo,   an   evangelical   Christian   and   former   insider   to   President   Bush's   administration,   published   a   new   book,   revealing   how   the   GOP   leadership   viewed   evangelical   Christians   as   "nuts." 
And   in   the   final   week   before   the   election,   Ted   Haggard,   a   renowned   pastor   and   leader   of   the   30-million   member   strong   National   Association   of   Evangelicals,   was   outed   –   and   repentantly   resigned   –   for   having   alleged   secret,   drug-enhanced,   homosexual   liaisons   with   a   male   "masseur."    
Symptoms   of   the   elite's   "sickness"   were   visibly   pervasive   long   before   the   election,   too.     Such   examples   include   the   criminal   Jack   Abramoff   lobbying-corruption   scandal,   the   GOP   "earmarking"   increased   "pork-barrel"   spending   in   numerous   bills,   the   failure   to   correct   the   "Ponzi   Scheme"   called   Social   Security,   and   the   failure   to   fix   the   immigration   problem.    
That   the   liberal   media   had   indeed   worked   against   them   was   mostly   irrelevant.     The   conservative   elite’s   "sickness"   had   already   self-sabotaged   the   election   all   on   their   own,   defeated   in   majoritarian   collectivism. 
Indeed,   at   the   same   time   that   the   Democrats   re-gained   the   majority,   seven   of   the   eight   big   state   government   marriage   control   amendments   also   passed.     Yet,   even   Pennsylvania's   Senator   Rick   Sentorum   -   the   chief   collectivist   cheerleader   for   a   federal   marriage   control   amendment   -   was   replaced   by   a   Democrat   too.     That   so   many   state   marriage   control   amendments   were   passed   by   collective   majorities,   while   Santorum   was   simultaneously   ousted,   proves   that   the   conservative   elite’s   losses   were   self-inflicted   by   their   liberally   embracing   majoritarian   collectivism.      
Using   liberalism   to   fight   liberalism,   the   conservative   elite   were   blind   to   the   very   majoritarian   collectivism   that   ultimately   cost   them   the   election.     Worse:   they   betrayed   the   very   God   for   Whom   even   most   Christian   conservative   leaders   claimed   to   be   fighting.     Turning   to   the   false   god   of   big   socialist   government   as   their   "savior,"   they   committed   the   sin   of   idolatry.     Using   sin   to   fight   sin,   they   were   blind   to   their   spiritual   arrogance.     Truly,   purporting   to   fight   liberalism,   they   became   even   deeper   liberals.     Purporting   to   fight   sin,   they   became   even   deeper   sinners. 
For   Christians,   the   Bible   explains   the   source   of   such   spiritual   "sickness,"   repeatedly   decrying   how   frequently   the   leaders   of   God's   people   "have   gone   the   way   of   Jeroboam   the   son   of   Nebat"   –   i.e.,   politically   leading   God’s   people   into   idolatry   instead   of   trusting   in   the   one   true   God.     Undoubtedly,   the   conservative   elite   had   profoundly   embraced   the   false   god   of   big   socialist   government   with   majoritarian   collectivism   -   as   their   big   government   marriage   control   amendment   proves.     Since   those   elite   had   so   unrepentantly   mis-led   conservative   constituents   into   such   anti-republican   idolatry,   the   Christian   view   perceives   that   God   simply   gave   up   the   conservative   elite   to   their   own   reprobate   minds   -   and   let   them   have   it.     Consequently,   the   admitted   majoritarian   collectivists   -   the   Democrats   -   returned   to   power. 
It   is   true   that   Democrats   have   little   interest   in   federal   marriage   control.       And   true   conservatives   -   including   conservative   pro-polygamy   activists   -   may   be   relieved   about   that   fact.     But   majoritarian   collectivism   remains   strengthened.     The   same   majoritarian   collectivist   arguments   employed   by   the   conservative   elite   to   justify   marriage   control   had   unquestionably   provided   the   identical   anti-republican   arguments   which   Democrats   will   exploit   to   justify   gun   control.    
The   elite   had   thoroughly   betrayed   true   conservatism   by   trusting   in   the   might   and   power   of   the   false   god   of   big   socialist   government   with   its   anti-republican   notion   of   majoritarian   collectivism.     Contrariwise,   the   reason   why   true   Christian   conservatives   believe   in   limited   government,   rejecting   big   government   idolatry,   is   found   in   one   of   the   most   popular   hymns   in   churches   today   -   Zechariah   4:6,   "Not   by   might,   nor   by   power,   but   by   my   Spirit   saith   the   Lord." 
Majoritarian   collectivism   –   "two   wolves   and   one   sheep   voting   on   what   to   have   for   dinner"   –   is   anti-republican.     Republicans   acted   anti-republican,   so   they   lost. 
But   are   the   conservative   elite   willing   to   listen?
