28 Days Later: A political story

It's not a movie this time?
Back in 2002 a British zombie movie came out.  The premise is that a virus quickly sweeps across Britain, and a few pockets of resistance arise in the form of uninfected human.  The virus results from research wherein  chimps are infected with a virus that promotes a permanent stage of psychotic rage.

How is that relevant to politics? There's the obvious connection in that we are 28 days from the mid-term elections.  There's the liberals' view that the  Tea Parties are infected with, and driven by, rage.  They aren't - they are angry about government spending and government control and are organizing to put a stop to it.  It's not mindless like zombies - quite the reverse, it's about philosophical, political disagreement.  Try telling that to the mainstream media and mindless zombies on the left.  In the end, that insulting tone may play well in China, and to self-deluded progressives, but it only harms their cause and helps conservatives in the end.  28 days later, the Democrat strength in Congress and the Senate are going to resemble an inanimate corpse.

Here's what you can do to avoid being zombi-fied;

Or if you'd rather inoculate yourself then simply read Mill, Hayek, Friedman, Paine, Smith and others like de Tocqueville.
