Those of you who listen to Mark Levin know that Mark has little love for Glenn Beck. Levin has been critical of Glenn Beck’s saying there is little difference between the Republican Party and the Democrat Party.
On this issue, I can relate to both men. First, Levin does have a point about Beck’s comments having the effect of blurring the lines between the two parties. If you keep telling people that Republicans are every bit as bad as Democrats, then you lead them to the conclusion that third party is the only way to go. This is especially true for people who do not follow politics closely.
On the other hand, Beck makes a strong case that we must hold Republican’s feet to the fire. Haven’t we all been down this road before? Democrats get into power and then reveal themselves as elitist control freaks. In a mad rush to rid ourselves of the Dems, everyone votes Republican and we end up with a fresh batch of RINOs. Calling out wayward Republican behavior is essential to keep them principled.
What is needed is a balance between the two points of view. We should acknowledge that Republican principles are better than the Democrats. At the same time we must make it perfectly clear to all Republican that when they abandon their principles, we will abandon them, no ifs ands or buts about it.
