Ok, Republicans, we’ve handed you command of the Congress and bolstered our numbers in the Senate as well. You cloaked yourselves in the language and the trappings of our patriotic movement. By doing so, Republicans knew full well that we, the ‘Tea-Party’ Patriots, the Constitutional Conservative movement was, and is, sweeping the nation even as this is written. The price of our support was not conditional, it was adherence to conservative principles, and unfortunately we are already witnessing some disturbing symptoms of weakness in the leadership.
So, you’re going to come to us and convince us that spending another 250 billion dollars is somehow going to translate to lowering a deficit that, were it a reactor, would be bleeding lethal radiation? The end result will be the same if we, you and I, don’t stop it.
Boehner announced on Friday that he and his new Congress would sacrifice for the sake of the people and cut their budgets 5%. Are you ready for a what?!! Moment? John, do you have a clue? Do you realize that the only way out of this mess is to push for permanent tax cuts, to start hacking and slashing non-essential, government multiple redundant bureaucracies. Other than defense and security, there’s absolutely no bureau, or bureaux, that couldn’t be slashed by 50% or more.
You need to push for an up or down vote on the tax issue. What’s going to be readily apparent to you ‘Conservative’ Republicans is that we trust you more than we trust the DeMarxists, which is to say, not at all. We have the conservative cavalry coming into the battle as a New Year gift to the progressives (let’s see how many different words we can find for communist).
John, we really want you to be successful… but any more appointments like your last two and we may have to reevaluate your commitment to the conservative cause, and perhaps your leadership of the House, at that.
Let’s get this right. We’re going to have this one shot at it. If you Republicans can’t hack it, move aside, because we the people can.
Semper Vigilans, Semper Fidelis
