One Last Chance for the GOP
Last night, DrewM at Ace of Spades posted a final warning to RINO squish Republicans that deserves a wider audience. There’s a modicum of profanity in Drew’s version. Nevertheless, it should be used as a template for a letter-writing campaign to the members of Congress and candidates for office who dare to run as members of the Republican Party. I share Drew’s thought and feelings on the matter as do, I suspect, most of the main page posters here at Redstate. I invite everyone to copy and paste this into an email and send it to as many Republican politicians as you can. They get one last chance. Then we’re done with them:
This is your last chance. If you blow this, I’m out and you need to be destroyed.
What is it? Repeal ObamaCare on Day 1. Don’t worry about replace, don’t worry about anything else. We will do everything we have to drag your sorry asses over the line this fall, including electing Mitt [expletive deleted] Romney.
In return this is what you will do:
Instead of adjourning for pictures and tea and cake to celebrate getting your pathetic asses elected to 2 or 6 years on the government teet, you will immediately pass a one line bill that says, “The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (and whatever statute number has to be included) is hereby repealed.”
That’s it. Nothing more, nothing less.
Since Congress meets before Inauguration Day, Obama will still be President. Simply hold the legislation at the desk so the 10 day pocket veto clock doesn’t start. If other parliamentary BS is needed, just do it.
Then as soon as Mitt takes the oath of office, before his speech no one will care or remember, walk the bill up to him at the podium to sign.
If this does not happen, the GOP must be destroyed and a new party built to replace it. We’ve tried the carrot approach (votes, money, volunteers) to change your behavior. Now it’s time to show you the stick.
No more, “oh the other guys are worse” scare tactics. That might be true but it doesn’t mean you are any good.
This is your one job, do it or join the Whig Party in the dustbin of history.
I removed the colorful gerund I’ve never seen posted at Redstate but I’m editing this on my iPhone so if I missed any, you all have my sincerest apologies.
Update: I can’t seem to fix the problem with the missing link to Drew’s post. Here is the URL: http://ace.mu.nu/archives/330556.php
