“Don’t be afraid to see what you see.” ~Ronald Reagan
By Alden L. Benton
I am disgusted with the GOP.
They silenced Ron Paul at the Republican Party Convention and conveniently decertified his delegates, taking away their voice — a very conservative voice.
Now, in apparent retaliation, party figureheads (House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell) have eliminated conservatives from key committees and replaced them with lap dog RINOs (Republicans in Name Only).
Today it has become clear that the two faux leaders are caving to Obama’s demands for raising taxes. The only disagreement seems to be on how they will screw us, not if they will screw us.
Boehner and McConnell are turncoats — traitors to conservatives and their hopes to rebuild America. I have suspected this for quite some time and now they have proclaimed their lack of fealty for all to hear.
There is no longer any point in voting for the GOP or its candidates until it returns to its founding principles. All GOP officials seem to be interested in is covering their asses — maintaining their personal power and securing their own reelection, no matter what principles they sacrifice or what lies and treachery they must perpetrate to do so.
I have changed my voter registration to reflect this reality. I am now registered as “Declined to state,” California’s version of independent.
The GOP is self-destructing and this implosion does not bode well for the future of America.
America must not fall victim to one-party rule. One party rule is tyranny. With the current configuration of the Republican Party, we already have one party rule. The labels of (D) or (R) have become meaningless. Democrats are still the dangerous party and the Republican Party is not just the stupid party, but are now no more than servile sycophants.
However, if the GOP becomes irrelevant, and is not replaced by a viable conservative party, America will become a nation of serfs and vassals. We will be a nation of slaves serving the Leftist leaders of the undemocratic party and its government — a government where our God–given rights are no longer relevant, let alone protected; a government whose just powers are not derived from the people.
That is an America I do not want to see.
I can see two ways to prevent the hostile takeover of the United States by the Marxist Left: reestablish the GOP as a conservative party by aligning with little “l” libertarians (not the Libertarian Party) or form a new conservative party.
Over the last few weeks, Erick Erickson (Red State) has been advocating the first option — purging the GOP of the old guard establishment and replacing them with true conservatives. I think this is the most viable option as third parties have never been successful. This is why Ron Paul, an ardent Libertarian, ran as a Republican. He knew his ideas had a better chance of being heard as a candidate of a major party.
Another problem with the GOP is, as Thomas Sowell details in his column Nice Losers, with one exception, the GOP candidate for president has always been a RINO. For 100 years, we have only been given a choice between a progressive/leftist Democrat and a not quite so progressive leftist Republican. The one exception was Ronald Reagan.
It is time for a revolution within the Republican Party. It is time for conservatives who care about the future of the United States to wrest control of the GOP from the hacks and traitors who control it.
In 2014, there are 33 Senate seats up for election. Of those 33, 20 are Democrats and 13 are Republicans. Conservatives must unite and eliminate as many Democrats as possible and replace any Republican who is not a conservative.
In 2016, the fight must continue. Thirty-four Senate seats are up for election with 10 Democratic and 24 Republican Senators expected to seek reelection. In both 2014 and 2012, the entire House of Representatives will be elected.
These elections, along with the off-year state and local elections, give conservatives an extraordinary opportunity to reclaim their party and begin the rescue of a nation that has been held hostage by progressives of both parties for more than 100 years.
We must seize this opportunity. If we fail, America will fail.
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” ~Ronald Reagan
