Star Parker – Republicans Must Offer Alternative to Democrat Moral Bankruptcy

Republicans need to step up to the plate and start talking about our nation’s real crisis – our moral crisis. The nation’s searching middle class will understand the when they hear it.

I think Parker has pointed to something that isn’t being talked about very much during this election: the moral rot that is causing people like Democrats (and Republicans) to disclaim any allegiance to God or the Bible. I also think she tries too hard to be profound in her efforts to mimic Michelle Malkin (who usually is). Says Parker:

The omission of these key principles [God, and recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel] from the Democratic platform was the party equivalent of what journalist Michael Kinsley calls a political gaffe – when a politician inadvertently says what he really believes… [This] showed today’s Democrats exactly for who they are – the home base for the nihilism, moral relativism, and welfare that defines today’s far left.

But is the Republican Party any better? Parker iterates some that try to prove that, at bottom, the American people are basically moral, love God, and go to church. Those statistics, in my opinion, aren’t persuasive and in fact, could be used to point out the continuing decline in whatever morality is left over from previous generations. For instance:

According to a 2010 Gallup poll, 43 percent of Americans attend church regularly. However, just 39 percent of Democrats and 27 percent of do.

This shows little difference between the average American and the average Democrat: fewer than half attend church regularly. Without checking, Gallup’s definition of “regularly” is once a month or more. Parker really blows it when she thinks Republicans can somehow save the country from its moral meltdown:

If you think debt, government dependence, broken families, and moral relativism is the path to a strong and prosperous America, sign on with the Democrats. But Republicans need to do a better job embracing and articulating the alternative.

And what alternative would that be, exactly? This is more of the false premise that Republicans can solve our problems: the lesser of two evils is still evil.
