Finally, the Republican Establishment Has Found a Hill it’s Willing to Die On

Be still my beating heart. There is some red blood still beating in those bluish veins after all.

Since Bill Clinton came to office we’ve watched the Republican leadership cut and run so many times, I was beginning to think they were Italian infantry. For years we’ve pleaded and begged, “Hold your ground” only to see their coattails at the first sign of trouble.

We cajoled. Entreated. But most of all we asked…”What to they really stand for?’ Do they love the Constitution? If so, then do they not also hate its enemies? Do they love America? If so, do they not also hate its enemies?

To these questions we never could get a straight answer, so could only measure by performance what they try to disguise with their forked tongues.

For the longest time we had thought them cowards. We’ve all shared that sentiment here many times. They have no taste for a fight.

But we were wrong. They aren’t cowards. They are quislings.

Only recently I asked them to wheel and turn on the Democrats. Instead, like Hitler with Barbarossa, they wheeled and turned on the ally who protected their flank, thus costing Hitler the war.

Finally, the Republican Party has publicly identified its one true enemy. Conservatism. And it has picked Virginia, Oh, Noble Virginia, as the hill they have planted their sabre and are willing to die on.

You see, conservatives make up over 50% of the Republican Party in Virginia. They also make up almost 50% of all voters in Virginia. Indeed, conservatives make up over 50% of the GOP voter base in America, and easily 40% of all voting Americans.

There’s a bunch of us, in other words. But recently, by some sleight of hand, the GOP of Virginia has managed to keep all conservatives in the current presidential field off the Virginia ballot, leaving only an establishment moderate and space captain (Mitt Romney and Ron Paul) to face off with one another.

Seriously, how can you have a Republican primary when over half of your voter base does not have a representative on the ballot? There’s not a single conservative on the ballot in a state over-flowing with them, and where, as recently as two months ago, returned the entire Virginia state government to the GOP for the first time since Reconstruction.

To add gasoline to this little fire, the GOP has announced if you want to vote in the Republican primary you must first sign a loyalty oath, which means if you are a Democrat you can lie, and if an honorable man you can turn around and go home. Conservatives will have two existential choices; to stay home or cast a protest vote for a man they dislike even more than Mitt Romney. (I hope there is a media campaign to get them to march in lock step on this, one way or the other, for conservatives do have it in their power to render the Virginia primary irrelevant either way…by record low turnout, or a win for Paul.)

On the other hand, if their math is as solid as their spines, the VA-GOP seems to be saying Romney can beat Paul in a head-to-head match.  That is now for conservatives to decide.

Now, this Virginia gambit is no mere coincidence. I’m not privy to their game plan, but it’s clear the GOP has finally decided to openly declare who it’s enemies are. And as I alluded to earlier, it should be clear for all to see who their enemies are not; anti-Constitutionalist, statists, leftists, socialists. Their true enemies are God-fearing constitutional conservatives.

As the campaign progresses, we will develop here all the voters in the United States the GOP leadership does not want in its corner, and then let you do the math as to how they ever thought they could get from here to there.

Although I never thought the Great Battle for the Party would start this way…
Custer split his men, but he won’t do that again…” (John Cash) it’s obvious the GOP feels it’s time to show their cards, and have picked their hill.

“Hoka Hey”, as the Oglala say.

  1. This is reminiscent of how elections were conducted in Poland, East Germany, and other satellite countries of the Soviet Union. The elections were open to all of the citizens, but the ballot was limited to the commie candidates. Virginia should change their operations to be more like Oklahoma. In Oklahoma you have to register as a Republican or a Democrat to vote in a party primary, and you can’t register or change your registration within 25 days of the primary date. That makes your registration a loyalty oath, and you are bound to it for about 50 days at least.

  2. I’m looking forward to our local GOP meetings resumption now that the holidays are over. Very much interested in what the folks on the ground have to say. From what I’ve seen in past meetings, there are a goodly number of people who consider themselves true conservatives and are not going to be supportive of a moderate in the primary. The bad news is that they may not be supportive of him in the general. This all leaves a bitter taste, and the VA GOP is going to have a hard time not being seen as having manipulative behavior in this. Perception is everything.

    As a Virginia voter, I will consider both the choices you’ve mentioned…but I intend to deny the moderate Romney my vote in the primary, period.

  3. I truly believe every single solitary conservative in the Dominion needs to go to the primary and pull the lever for Ron Paul.
    It would deny the uber-RINOs their fondest desire… that all those yummy electoral votes go to their “boy”.
    Lady P, please start calling all your friends and have them call their friends… kind of like the old Telephone Tree from grade school only with a WHOLE lot more on the line.

  4. And all those conservatives in VA who are not “in” the Party, and haven’t been for the last few election cycles, have only themselves to blame for this sorry mess because it was their absence from the “voting ranks” of the Party that allowed all of these RINO dullards to be voted into the “leadership” of the Party.

    If these absent Conservatives, instead, had signed up to become VA Republican Party precinct committeemen (it only takes a few hours a month and some nominal annual dues) in years past, the would have created a majority voting bloc inside the Party, that would have caused more conservatives to be elected to the local party committee officer ranks, the county committee officer ranks and the state committee officer ranks.

    Unfortunately, not enough conservative registered Republicans have taken the next step and become true “card carrying members” of the Republican Party itself: precinct committeemen. Until enough of us conservatives do that, we’ll keep seeing these kind of things happening inside our Party.

    Oh, and by the way, don’t expect the Party “insiders” to come calling for you to become a precinct committeeman. They don’t want that. Indeed, that’s the LAST thing they want. They want your money. They want your time. They want your sweat equity to help GOTV in the general election. But they DO NOT WANT YOU TO GET INTO A POSITION WHERE YOU COULD VOTE THEM OUT.

    If you want to learn more, and want to become part of the solution, call your county committee and ask when and where your local committee meets. Then learn (or re-learn, as the case may be) basic American Civics and get involved with your local Republican Party committee.

    You only have your country to lose.

  5. Whereas Cold Warrior is correct in his assessment/chastisement there is now only one viable option for denying the RINOS in VA their fondest wishes. Go for the Scorched Plan and vote for Ron Paul. I would if I lived there.
