It’s almost comical to see the flying posteriors and elbows of the establishment elitists as they madly scramble to attempt to co-opt the arriving freshmen representatives. Only they’re just not having any luck with this bunch… or very little. Maybe enticing away a moderate here or there, who would have most likely gone RINO on us anyhow. A target for the next cycle.
This new crop has a bone in its teeth. These folks are on a mission and aren’t likely to forget why they were sent to Washington. They have, in addition, the historical perspective afforded them by the Heritage Foundation and the Conservative Republicans. For once, I think we may have some leadership with the plain intestinal fortitude that’s required if you’re going to fight these Marxists, wherever they are.
With guys like Eric Cantor, Darrell Issa, John Boehner, Kevin McCarthy, Pete Sessions, to say nothing of Mike Pence and Paul Ryan… strong Conservatives all. Tough and no-nonsense, these are the faces of the New Conservative leadership to whom our younger Conservative members will be looking for guidance and inspiration… and not the elitist, erstwhile movers and shakers who until just recently were still congratulating themselves on destroying the chances of some very fine Republican candidates, simply because they were not the choices of the party anointed elite. Yet they were clearly the choice of the American people.
So how should we reply to such blatant skulduggery within our own ‘party’? We watched, we know who you are. When your cycle is up… so are you. We’ve been catching it in the shorts from the entrenched so-called party elite for so long it’s a severe temptation to launch the entire strength of the Tea Party Patriots against them in open internecine warfare.
The result, I fear, would be a wrecked Republican Party and a Patriot Movement forced into governing… something it was never meant to do. No. We’ll have to defeat them at their own game, then throw out the stale rulebook and start again.
The Tea Party will always serve the country best by its dogged determination and its eternal vigilance in the cause of liberty.
Semper Vigilans, Semper Fidelis
