It is very easy to avert our eyes from the painful reality that is confronting us within the Republican Party. We would all love to cheer on a GOP victory in the midterm elections, win back the Senate, and live happily ever after. But as Republicans gear up for the week of amnesty, they have made it clear that the entire purpose of a Republican majority is to push the most important priority of the Democrat Party.
This is why we need to change the party in the primaries.
GOP leadership is now fully aware of our growing effort to elect Republicans who believe in the party platform, and according to the Wall Street Journal, they will time their amnesty bills accordingly:
“House leaders hope to bring legislation to the floor as early as April, the people close to the process said, after the deadline has passed in many states for challengers to file paperwork needed to run for Congress. Republican leaders hope that would diminish chances that a lawmaker's support for immigration bills winds up sparking a primary-election fight.”
So this is what the party leaders think of the people who rebuilt the party since 2010 after it was destroyed during the Bush years.
There is only one obvious response to this malevolent attitude on the part of party leadership. If they want to pass amnesty after the primaries under the pretense that we will already be on the plantation, we must commit to withholding support from any amnesty supporter even in a general election.
For years, I’ve always felt that no matter how low the GOP has sunk it was still worth voting for any Republican in a general election. Whenever my dad would suggest that we stay home in the general, I would always have something to point to – some horrible policy that would evolve from Democrat control of government unless Republicans remained in power. But that time has passed.
What will happen if the Democrats are in charge? We already have Obamacare, and Republicans have committed to preserving it. We already have record debt, and Republicans have committed to raising the debt ceiling. And now Republicans are pushing the most destructive Democrat policy of all – perennial open borders, a permanent Democrat majority, and the ballooning of the welfare state.
This pending amnesty push, which will also double our record low-skilled legal immigration, will change our economy and society forever. There is no way we could overcome the electoral juggernaut engendered by open borders. At some point we need to draw a line in the sand and fight back against this cynical ploy. If the undocumented Democrats in our party wish to pass amnesty after the primaries, we should not grant them amnesty in the general election.
What’s the worst that can happen? A Democrat majority?
That’s exactly where we are headed if we don’t fight this maniacal push for immigration deform.
Update: We all strongly believe in the rationale for a viable second party. We can't function with an oligarchy. That is why we must all spend the next 4-7 months fully engaged in the primaries. This is our party and it's time to take it back. Here are some candidates we can support and send a big message in the primaries:
- Kentucky Senate: Matt Bevin challenging GOP establishment king, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (donate here)
- Kansas Senate: Milton Wolf challenging Senator Pat Roberts (donate here)
- Mississippi Senate: Chris McDaniel challenging Senator Thad Cochran ( donate here)
- Louisiana Senate: Rob Maness challenging Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu and establishment Republican Bill Cassidy (donate here)
- Idaho House District 2: Bryan Smith challenging RINO Mike Simpson (donate here)
