There is a tsunami coming. In nature tsunamis are hard to spot. They cover great distances as only a swell before coming ashore as a raging wall of water destroying everything in their path.
There is a political tsunami coming. The people in the path of the tsunami act like they do not even know it is coming. The signs are there.
Who is in front of this tsunami and who will be the victims of it?
The Republican Party sits squarely in front of this tsunami and it acts like it has no clue that it is coming.
Eric Erickson over at Redstate put out a blog today. The title was “Maybe we really do need a third party.”
Erickson states the obvious. Republicans claim to be the party of conservatism. Yet, when they get to Washington they act just the opposite.
Congressman John Mica is a great example. Despite his claims of being a conservative, he just sponsored and guided a budget busting transportation bill through the Congress. Then yesterday he flew to Washington so he could be there when his favorite Democrat, Barack Obama signed this budget-busting bill into law.
If the Republican Party is going to claim to be a party of conservatives, could we perhaps see some evidence of this?
I realize when the Party of Treason controls the White House and the Senate, there are limits on what can be done, but there are some things that can be done.
That is, they can be done if someone tries.
There are some very good elected Republicans. There are some really good conservatives who are in office. Unfortunately the Republican Party is dominated by big government statists. These people like to come home and tell us how conservative they are yet when they go back to Washington, they spend money like Democrats.
Mitt Romney is the best example of this.
Has anyone looked at his “Day One” plan on his website? He might as well subtitle it, “we don’t need no stinkin’ Constitution.”
First, he says he is going to use executive orders to kill Obamacare. Earth to Mitt Romney! Have you never read the Constitution? What you propose is as bad as Obama. Obamacare has been passed and is a law. Congress must repeal it! To say this will be done by executive order is simply continuing the expansion of the power of the President in explicit contravention of the Constitution.
Along with his executive orders to “replace” Obamacare, Mitt wants Federal Tort Reform. Hello Mitt, may I introduce you to the 7th and 10th Amendments.
Tort law and the regulation of licensed professions has always been the domain of the states not the Federal Government. If the Federal Government is going to over rule the tort laws of all 50 states, what else can they do? If they can do this, states are little more than lines on a map.
Texas tried what Romney proposes. What was the result? There were no savings. However there was one really big change. If a doctor injures you, you are simply out of luck. Lawyers in Texas will not take those type cases anymore. If the Doctor does something stupid like amputating the wrong leg or operating on the wrong organ, that is your problem. You can forget about being compensated for your injury or your day in court.
This is the problem with Republicans. They started the 2011 Congress with a reading of the Constitution. They promptly forgot all that they read. They ran in 2010 talking about how conservative they were. They talked about how they were going to fight Obama and fight to repeal Obamacare. They forgot about that too.
Conservatives are going to stay with the Republicans through 2012. We really have no choice. But there is a massive wave of dissatisfaction with the GOP. Conservatives want a conservative party. If the GOP does not want to be that party, fine. A lot of us are tired of fighting the establishment over this.
Conservatives do the heavy lifting. We carry the signs, work the campaign offices, watch the polls and we are the boots on the ground for the GOP.
We are tired of being ignored.
If the GOP does not pay attention, Mitt Romney may have something in common with Millard Fillmore.
Millard was the last President his party elected too.
Romney was never my first choice,but Im casting my vote for him come November.Another 4 years of this Marxist clown and we are done.Look,ive said from the beginning,there is no resurrection of "Reagan",and as much as I like Ron Paul,hes not going to be President,and neither is Gary Johnson ,Buddy Rohmer.Romneys not perfect.Infact,none of the candidates were perfect,but Romney is now the for sure nominee.Any vote for Paul,Johnson,or Rohmer is a vote for Obama.I want this guy OUT,and I want the Socialists PURGED out.Take back the Senate,the White House and lets go from there.Lets give Romney a chance,lets light a fire in the belly.
Im sorry ,but this article sounds like a "surrender".
The battles only beginning.
The Constitution gives us the RIGHT to file grivences against our Government.The Constitution also gives us the right to remove and replace our Government at the first sign of tyranny.The 2nd Amendment gives us the right to bear arms and use it to remove tyranny as well.We are still a country of THE PEOPLE.And we the People stay home in November ,then we will deserve what we get.
What have you given us?"A Republic..if you can keep it"-Wise words from Ben Franklin .Its up to us to keep it,or lose it!!
There is no more Democrats,get that understood.The Democrat party of old is GONE,and has been infiltrated by Communist Socialists under the name of "Progressives".
Many of these Progressives are members of Communist Party USA,and Socialist Party.One being the chairman of the Democratic Black Caucus.
These people are Communists,and we MUST get them out!
My God,open your eyes,man!
Ye be right salty nave. After the Civil War, there was no Republican Party in the South. Only Democrats.
However, the democrats worked hard to be conservative and created their Good O'l Boy voting and election systems. The loopholes in these good o'l boy systems was Ideal for the commies, ruskies, facist, sorro-iers,and any other bad ilk that wanted to play.
Therefore, they took over and destroyed the best Party ever.
Now it is not worth a damned, and the players are mostly bottom feeders in the breadlines with the upper crust playing social engineering with the dummies.
On the other hand, the RINOS kept tayloring the Repubican Party to win, and adopted the same commie, ruskie, facist sorr-eer techniques and have literally stolen us blind.
What Clinton did not steel, the Bushes did. And Obama could be a BUSH Plant or a Clinton Plant (e.g., the managers of these past figures could be jerking both party chains for social engineering).
That is our concern.
Be careful, let us not sundown our own shadow. (The SHADOW KNOWS)
It is not the title nor the face that is important in this article. If you apply the 1960's COMMUNIST Flinch test, to the words of the article you will understand.
OLYMPIC GAMES; US and RUSSIA are the last two contestants in FOOSEBALL. US Team Wins.
Communist Reporter: The US Came in next to last in the Olympic Fooseball Game and RUSSIA came in Second.
HONEST REPORTER: The US won the Olympic Fooseball Game and RUSSIS came in second.
Now read the referenced article:
Welcome to Communist Propaganda:
“Democrats were up against nothing short of an avalanche of secret, out-of-state and corporate special interest money amounting to a massive $31 million war chest for Governor Walker compared to just $4 million on our side,” Wasserman Schultz is reported to have said earlier this month. “In fact, the Koch brothers alone gave twice as much money to Scott Walker as the total amount of money raised by Tom Barrett.”
Now, do you understand why it is necessary to REMOVE OBOZO from the WH.
This person is nothing more than skin wrapped about bones. She has no brains. And she lacks ethics. I would like to see Debbie W S kicked under the bus.
agreed! When she comes on T.V if I am watching I generally find something else to do so I don't have to look at her, I LISTEN to her so I know where she is coming from at the moment
Look at that eye, she's obviously a Reptilian.
Good grief, does anyone read: or just post and blither on? Are we a movement to take back our Country, or a movement of bloggers and Conservative Sheep? Not sure this Bill is as bad as everyone is jumping on, because "it is said", therefore must be. Read the Bill, I have questions contrary to what is stated. Which have NOT been answered. I would like to find one, just one Thomas Jefferson, Sam Adams, or Patrick Henry....sadly it seems no.
Romney should indeed be the means to get obie out in November and a true CONSERVATIVE Party should emerge to get rid of him. The Conservatives work for the people here in Canada. Even those who disagree with them. It is long past time for America to have such a party as well.
Great post Judson - I agree totally on Romney. However, if we go third party, we will virtually assure Obama's reelection this November. Ever since the Obamacare ruling came down from the SCOTUS, I've heard nothing but "Vote Ron Paul" from a lot of conservatives. Ron Paul cannot win on a thrid party ticket. he might not be able to win if he was the sole Republican left in the race because the media will drag up every "extremist" thing he's ever said, and there have been a lot of them. I'm going to vote Romney, even though it will hurt me to do so. In the meantime, let's put all our focus on putting more TEA party into Congress and taking back the Senate. I don't know what Romney would do once elected, but he will know this: we WILL be watching him like a hawk.
Like I posted earlier. What third party. Anything outside Liberal and Conserative, you have jabber.
If this and if that and if third party.
The only analogy I can provide for an "If third party" at this time and this late in the game (too late for this election), is If a frog had wings he would not bump his but every time he hopped.
That is about as accurate as trying "If we had a third party...." Been there, did a lot of that, and no one wound up being interested.
Like I've said before: High-level defectors. Woo the conservative politicians who know the RNC doesn't appreciate them. They're frustrated too! Unfortunately, the tea party has been incredibly fickle about its support of politicians. No successful politician is going to switch parties hoping for support from us. BUT if they are involved in forming the new party, they know they've got fans who will follow them.
