When the so called “young guns” of the GOP set up shop, they set up shop as a conservative alternative to the “compassionate” conservatives who spent us into debt like Democrats. We know there isn’t a brand of conservatism that can spend like a Democrat, but nonetheless, Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA), Majority Whip Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), and Budget Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), decided they needed a special group to help get real conservatives elected. Unfortunately, now we find they’ve become part of the Washington DC, 95 corridor elite political class. “Real” conservatives has turned into “keep” the old guard in.
It pains me to even suggest that Paul Ryan with his quasi outstanding budget (I prefer Senator Rand Paul’s) would turn on the TEA Party conservatives who helped to get him and other conservatives elected to the House in 2010. I can only deduce via his support for Senator Dick Lugar, who has spent 36 years working in DC helping to bring America to her knees in debt, that Mr. Ryan struggles in working with conservatives. I would suggest ONLY an apology from him would work to bring him back to the table of those of us who truly want a Constitutional America.
It is shameful that they took money donated by actual conservatives to help take down a TEA Party backed real conservative for an old dog, big government Senator like Dick Lugar, but they have; Richard Mourdock IS The Conservative In The Race
Indiana Treasurer Richard Mourdock jabbed Friday at House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s Young Guns organization, which is supporting his primary opponent, Sen. Richard Lugar.
“I certainly see my philosophy as much more aligned with what [the Young Guns] presented themselves to be than with the philosophy of Sen. Lugar, which has been to be out of touch with his constituents. To vote for ever bigger government, to be known as Barack Obama’s favorite Republican? And he’s getting the help from the so-called conservative Young Guns? There’s a disconnect there that I’m not understanding,” Mourdock said on a conference call on Friday.
The Republican challenger was careful to not attack Mr. Cantor directly, saying that he had heard that the Young Guns “act somewhat independently from what Mr. Cantor does.”
But, he said, “however and from whomever the control is made over the Young Guns, I wish they would be spending their time to build a Republican majority in the House of Representatives rather than throwing their money away on a cause that will not work for them here in Indiana.”
Note to the young guns and all of you Washington DC political elites who keep coming into the primaries to keep the old guard on standby while we continue to fight them from doing just that, we are not going away. I will guarantee you all that we will be here in 2014 going into primaries against other longtime Republican Senators and Congressmen. One who easily comes to mind is Senator McConnell. Rep. Cantor, et al, you might have more money but we have the passion, and it isn’t passion for the Establishment Republican Party, it is passion for America and for our children’s futures, we are not here to vote to keep you in power for America’s destruction. So keep showing yourselves and your little PAC’s will dwindle in $$$$ because as the RNC and NRCC can tell you, those small dollar donations are falling off and will continue to do so.
You can be and are bought and owned by the rich (just like the Democrats) and they can donate their riches to you however, you and they are ONLY ONE VOTE at the ballot box. We will be storming the ballot boxes every election until the day we die.
The TEA Party is alive and well, and here to stay. The Establishment GOP either needs to rethink themselves, or we’ll vote you out, one-by-one.
