We have a president who has told us that he’s a progressive socialist. He has all along used his office and his cabinet illegally and it is likely, if not certain, that he is not a natural-born US citizen. He has told us that it’s his intention to ignore the second amendment, to disarm the military, enter us into economy-killing treaties and refuses to terminate a Secretary of State who has shown herself to be utterly unqualified for the position, even unto the deaths of several Americans as a direct result of her incompetance.
Where is the GOP? What have their actions in response to Obama told you about what they are and what they stand for? Where are the members of the senate telling us not to worry about it because they will refuse him everything, by filibuster if necessary? Where are the members of the House of Representatives, telling us not to worry, they’ll deny him everything via the power of the purse?
Where are the articles of impeachment? Where is the special prosecutor for “Fast & Furious”? Why aren’t the Republican elected members of congress organizing marches, demonstrations and in general, blocking everything this man and his henchmen are doing while making public awareness or our great numbers impossible to avoid?
Where are these people? Are they hiding under their desks?
No. They’re trying to aid Obama in his aims. Senators Rubio, Graham, McCain and others are helping to craft his Amnesty Legislation, among them Sen. Jeff Flake, who told us all here in Arizona how conservative he was at election time. (Like most of those who are “moderate” Republicans, the truth is that they are really just Democrats who from time to time have flashes of conscience about taxes and the budget. “Flashes” are as far as it gets, because they seemingly fail to grasp that if you grow areas of government, you increase the pressure for higher taxes and a greater budget. Thus, ultimately, their “cuts” are only talk for the fatuous and in the end, meaningless.)
What about the House of Representatives? Are they demanding a budget? No. They’re just going from one continuing resolution after another, from one lost argument over the debt ceiling to the next – and these are the people who can dictate those terms! They have the power, but apparently they lack the brains, the understanding and the guts.
We are on our own. As a practical matter we have no representation in Washington.
Ladies and gents, why do we permit this? Yes, surprising as it may seem to some, it’s up to us what we tolerate! It’s up to us who goes to Washington. All those Republicans are there because it was us who put them there. But they’re doing nothing.
Why are they doing nothing? Because they have no leadership nor do they have a platform which means anything to that leadership. Has Speaker Boehner published his agenda for this legislative session along with all which he is determined to achieve? What about McConnell? The documents must be top-secret if they have done so. Because the GOP has no set agenda, no line they will draw in the sand which they won’t permit anyone to pass beyond, they will stand for anything. They have no guiding light, no rock upon which to proclaim “we will fight for this until we win” and no determination to win anything. Sadly they are just there, just occupying space.
So, are we going to “tolerate” having our choices as to who will be in congress dictated to us by the same old people who have been handing us those choice for all these years, or are we going to put together a vital party, a party with teeth in its rules, which will be a fighting force for good and the American way of life? It’s our choice.
