Overachievers with Low Self-Esteem

America is up to its eyeballs in people concerned with saving us from their demons.

Michelle Obama's weight problem and lack of self-control is channeled into a childhood obesity campaign to rid us of high-calorie foods she can't resist.  The reasoning that if they don't exist, Mrs. Obama won't be tempted.  Sorry, Michelle, but you'll just find something else to eat...so get over it and embrace the salad bar.

Michael Bloomberg wants to save us from demon salt.  Does Hizzoner have high blood pressure?  How did a lowly condiment replace John Dillinger as Public Enemy Number One?  In addition to salt, the mayor is overly concerned that we may be prejudiced against Muslims because of 9/11; therefore, we absolutely have to embrace the Muslim victory mosque in order to demonstrate our tolerance to those who wish to kill us.  Are you kidding me?

What's the deal with the Sierra Club and the whole Green Movement?  Did these guys just wake up and think, "Oh my goodness, I'm using more than my fair share" without trying to define "fair share"?  From the looks of things, they want to reduce our use of resources to make up for their carbon footprint.  Al Gore continues to jet around in pursuit of global warming cash, which now seems to be the one resource that is actually becoming more endangered.  It's about time everyone woke up and smelled the coffee on that monumental hoax.

These Chicken Little types are able to channel their insecurities into a drive to overachieve in order to mask their low self-esteem.  We see this all the time in entertainment, where comedians use laughter to mask loneliness and actors crave the adulation and attention they never received as children.  Politicians are famous for seeking approval in the winning of elections.  Perhaps these politicians want to repay the electorate who voted for them by saving said electorate from the demons that torment these politicians' very own souls.

What happened to the rugged individualism that built America and sustained it through wars, depressions, and dark times?  This individualism, made heroic by John Wayne, George Patton, and Ronald Reagan, wasn't afraid to stand up and say that something was nuttier than a Texas fruitcake.  The mention of political correctness around those guys would get you an "are you serious?" look followed by an eye-narrowing, "somebody get a rope" look.

Now we've got a government that forces us to use detergents that won't clean, low-flow toilets that won't flush, pesticides and herbicides that don't kill, food with no taste, and light bulbs with bad light.  They also want us to use unreliable and expensive energy such as solar, wind, and ethanol, while pretending that our vast coal, oil, and natural gas reserves don't really exist or are too dangerous for the environment.  We're supposed to trust these idiots?  "Green" has become a codeword for "useless" on product labels, warning consumers to look elsewhere if they need an effective product.

Perhaps Robin of Berkeley should be writing this article, as she is a recovering liberal psychotherapist with insight into the progressive mindset.  I hypothesize that these overzealous regulators out to save us from all manner of evil are merely overcompensating for their own lack of self-esteem.  The first step in any 12-step program is to admit that you have a problem before you can continue on the path to recovery.  In these politicians' egomaniacal and elitist minds, we are the ones unable to help ourselves, the ones who are dependent on their enlightened inspiration to lead us to safety.

Personally, I'm sick of the government trying to keep me safe and do my thinking for me.  I like a little danger and excitement every once in a while to let me know I'm still alive.  I want to ignore the label warnings and use a product in a manner inconsistent with the directions.  I want to rip the tag off my mattress and ride my bicycle without a helmet.  These trifling brushes with danger are made exciting by the fact that the elitist power set have sucked all the fun out of life with their endless rules and regulations.

Down in the South, we're used to doing things considered dangerous by most without giving them much of a thought.  People hunt alligators for a living in Louisiana -- not exactly a safe occupation, as you can see on the History Channel.  We don't cotton much to outsiders lecturing us on our salt intake or telling us we have to be tolerant of Muslim terrorists.  We have bugs and snakes that, far from being cute and cuddly, are dangerous and best killed when encountered.  We can't afford useless feel-good pesticides.  Louisiana has the best food in the country, so Michelle needs to stay out of New Orleans.  We believe in enjoying life because it tends to be hard and too short.  We prefer to decide for ourselves rather than have someone decide for us.
