As soon as they get Newt out of the race, they’ll start in on Rick. That shouldn’t take long. Then all the conservative candidates will be gone. So the only remaining item of business will be the platform. I suggest Newt and Rick go ahead and get out and let the platform committee go ahead and get started on that. That shouldn’t take too long, either. Just put down “We stand for lowering the Top Marginal Rate to, oh, 26%.” Then it will all be done. No need for a convention.
In fact, I’m in complete agreement that the primary campaign has dragged on far too long, and frankly has distracted us from discussing the issues, which should have been, but are not going to be, getting rid of HHS, DOE and DOE and EPA, and DOL and DOI and trimming US Code down to pamphlet size and eliminating discretionary spending, plus reducing the Federal Judiciary by 75-80%. Since we’re not going to talk about those things,and since the party’s standardbearer has been chosen, and since we have found out just about all we need to know about faux conservatives, and faux conservative pundits, and since the thrill is almost gone, the party would be better off taking the money they were going to spend on the convention and use it to buy anti-Obama ads, for whatever good they’ll do, until they are outlawed by the FCC.
That negative enough for ya? The Tea Party caucus in Congress pretty much dissolved, didn’t it? The other day there was a “sternly worded letter” to IRS about intimidating the Tea Party, and I think the House Investigations committee and Judiciary Committee have decided it would be unfair or something to hold the Atty. Gen. in contempt over Fast and Furious documents. They never did investigate the NBPP scandal. Solyndra? I don’t even remember what that was all about. Let’s don’t even get started on matters budgetary. And the executive orders just keep coming and coming and coming.
Did we mention that Obamacare has been the law of the land for two years now? Since Big Health began making the necessary adjustments, they are unlikely to file briefs in opposition, in fact are likely to file briefs in support. The individual mandate may be struck down by the Supreme Court, but all the directives coming out of HHS will likely stand, and proliferate over time. Many State governments and governors have been forced to adapt as well – forced to accept federal funding and to grovel before Kathleen Sebelius to alleviate the effects of this or that rule or mandate.
Coal fired electricity generating plants are already shutting down all across the land. The EPA’s ruling on “greenhouse gases”, by the time it gets to the High Court, will be a way of life also. The only bright spot is that unemployment is likely to drop as Eric Holder hires thousands of lawyers to continue suing States, corporations, banks, universities, political parties, private clubs and individuals who have yet to get on board with the Socialist Agenda.
We got used to no school prayer, we got used to Roe V. Wade, we got used to the emasculation of the male of the species. We got used to de-industrialization. We got used to children telling their parents how they should and shouldn’t feel about…..issues.
We got used to the elevation of victimhood. And we are getting used to the demilitarization of the military. We can get used to whatever else the Progressive Socialists have in mind, can’t we? No need for conventions and red, white and blue banners and endless speeches about “going to Washington to fight for you”.
Nah. No need for a convention. Just phone it in. There’s probably an app for that.
