Every day as I read the news, particularly about Republicans, I see the word "Surrender" boldly emblazoned across the screen.
Some are big deals: Romney nominated for President (DRIP), McConnell renominated in KY (DRIP), Republican candidates discussing "fixing" Obamacare (DRIP), another state sanctioning
sodomy gay marriage (SPLASH), McDaniel defeated by black voters in MS (drip). And some events, not as big, but never-the-less, another drip in the never-ending leakage of EVERYTHING we hold to be fair and good.
When will it end? What will be left of America if we allow the pool of everything that was once good, decent and moral to be drained into the fetid liberal cesspool of degeneracy?
And we get lectured, here and elsewhere, that we HAVE GOT TO SUPPORT the lesser of two evils. Drip, drip drip. We are scolded, like we are school-children, that things will be worse if we don't get out and vote for the RINOs. Drip, drip, drip, drip, drip.
What's the point? As long as we keep voting in the RINOs we will still have RINOs.
I know full well that I am going to get comments about how much I do, or do not, participate in local Republican committees. I'm sure to get asked, "so what do I propose?"
I have participated in Republican organizations in the past, and it was a TOTAL waste of time. I'm too radical, too rigid, too everything for those organizations. They want conformists, just like the RINOs we see at the state and national levels.
Erick really nailed it the other day when he said:
I’m just not sure what the Republican Party really stands for any more other than telling Obama no and telling our own corporate interests yes. That’s not much of a platform.
Erick is evolving and I think that, inevitably, he will reluctantly realize and accept that another party is essential.
"NOT DEMOCRAT" isn't enough anymore! It never was enough, but that is all that remains of the Republican Party. I have to admit that when I first heard the title "RINO" applied to someone I didn't agree with it. Now I realize that I am the RINO, because the Republican Party no longer represents what I believe.
I have gotten there: I think the time has come for a solid, right-wing political party to emerge that is distinct and different from the Republican Party. Let's think strategically for a minute. United as conservatives, we can play the spoiler role.
Of course we are going to vote for Republicans most of the time. In fact, the only thing we don't do, at times, is NOT VOTE. We form a party, and we rate candidates - zero to one hundred percent. We do it openly and very publicly. And then we set a bar. Perhaps 75%, maybe 80% - and we can change it when we want to - but we set a bar and anyone under the bar gets the thumbs down from us, and our people DON'T vote for that person.
It will result in a few losses - to be sure, but think of the aftermath. Do you think Republicans would finally fall into line and stop being squishy if we did that? We could actually inspire races to see who could out conservative the other guy.
I don't see any other options. Waiting for the Republican Party to finally develop some balls and start to fight for us is futile. We need them to know that we mean it. Right now, they think our threats are meaningless. Ask Eric Cantor what he thinks of our threats.
