The war isn’t so much between conservatives and libertarians; we pretty much agree on everything because if we return governance back to the States (whatever our own individual declared “right” is), we know we can fight on the ground for it. It is the Republican Party (called the Stupid Party my whole life) that is at odds with those of us right of center. The GOP is center, we are RIGHT and we are prepared to fight for the candidates we believe represent our values. We can’t have the K Street GOP ‘pay me’ crowd denigrating our most vital boots on the ground. To have them foist their candidate on us, and by God, we supported him over this Marxist in office, and then he didn’t even go out to Ken Blackwell for outreach in Ohio to counter the attacks of the racists in the media and the White House…well don’t come blaming the pro-life movement.
The Establishment GOP wouldn’t engage Ron Paul and his supporters about their “Military Complex” concept even when agreeing that there was fat in the Pentagon’s budget which could be whittled away. Instead, you and your peons continuously said “no cuts” to the military – but then you decided spending on your own pet projects was more important than saving the Country from bankruptcy. And now this same GOP sends out their pitbulls to attack and marginalize the Tea Party, who helped the GOP get the majority in the House. Blaming the principled, right-of-center base of your party isn’t going to fly, GOP. You blew it, Establishment GOP, not us. The Tea Party and the base were consistent on messaging – “STOP the SPENDING!”
So you think you know better than we do? You think we will just keep showing up for you? Do you not think there is someone to primary each of you in the so called GOP elite? I have a shocker for you, 2010 wasn’t a fluke and off year elections are the time for the above mentioned quarters of conservatism to take out those who think keeping the line on the spending destruction of our great country is their duty. We already know that stopping the spending is ours, and we are gearing up. You think we are “low information voters” – you’re so blinded by your elitism that you can’t see the enormous change in the electorate, on both sides. Technology is only going to aid in our knowledge and in our response. No longer will you be able to cover up and play politics and get away with it, at some point will be a reckoning. We will be working to expose the behind the scenes bargaining and betrayal of the American people. When we do, you’ll go home facing primary opposition you’ve too long been able to ignore. A Republican Civil War
Republicans are worried about being blamed for the economic fallout, little realizing that they will be blamed regardless of what happens. If Boehner gives Obama every single damn thing he wants, the media will still blame Congressional inaction for the economic problems, and unless that narrative is fought back against, the sort of people who get their news from Saturday Night Live will eat it up with a spork.
Is the Tea Party an unparalleled success? Absolutely not. From the moment Doug Hoffman was put forward, it was obvious that there was a serious candidate problem. But that’s natural because if you operate outside the establishment, the people you put forward will not be professional politicians. They will lack basic professional skills, but there are plenty of people who do have those skills in spades. Ronald Reagan was a sportscaster, actor and toured the country delivering speeches before he went into politics. That skillset is not incredibly unique. Neither is the ability to vet candidates before running them up the flagpole.
But while the Republican establishment makes a great deal of Akin or Angle, what are we to make of two-time loser Linda McMahon who handed out “Obama/McMahon ballots and dressed her people up in fake SEIU shirts. Or Meg Whitman. Or Mitt Romney.
The Republican Party has too many super-rich candidates with no ideas or principles. The Tea Party has too many principled candidates with very little understanding of how to run for office. It might be nice if we met somewhere in the middle.
I am sure it would be nice to meet in the middle, however, after watching the purge of TEA Party elected candidates from their committee assignments this week, I suspect #War is the answer. I suggest we gather together our little band of committed conservatives, pro-lifers, and libertarians, and lets fight in the trenches together for one purpose, that States’ Rights on all issues social is the answer to the questions of what to do about pot, gay marriage, abortion, etc. Then lets commit to each other to fight in DC on the fiscal questions. There is no doubt that our Country is going off a cliff, this January isn’t it but the spending addiction by the addicts in DC ensure it will happen in my lifetime, so lets stop them. There isn’t a program in the whole of the federal government that isn’t to be slashed, and lets start with the Democrat created “base line budgeting.” We have the numbers in the Country to stamp out the Democrats and the K Street GOP, so let’s get to work and make it happen.
Let’s also remember the man who pointed us in the direction we needed to go, Andrew Breitbart. He made it clear that it was a #War with progressives from both Parties. This is a war against those who would destroy this Country and indenture its children to a life of “slavery” to the Federal Government to pay back the excesses of the worst generation, given to us by the best generation.
