An opinion by George McClellan:
Once again the Republican Party has come off looking like the buffoons they seem to be: disorganized, self-destructive, off message and throughly infiltrated by collaborating fellow travelers, McCain and Lindsey, (et. al.) who missed no opportunity to attack the real Republican’s trying to save America, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. I hope john Boehner doesn’t break his arm patting himself on the back congratulating himself on reaching an agreement on a law that will economically destroy America.
Originally, the party stood for the people and the constitution, the end of slavery, and the free enterprise system, while the democrat party was, and still is, the party of the KKK, Jim Crow, and slavery of the citizens to the state. Those basic principles have never changed, only the people in the party have changed. The democrats message, shrouded by lies and deceit, have accomplished their mission, the social and economic submission of America’s once great economy to “fairness” and the common good.
At the moment the current GOP leadership does not realized what horror is in store for them. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are the true heros of the hour, both standing up for America’s founding principles, at once giving the illusion of unity, while flying in the face of the likes of McCain, et.al., the lie. Yet the facts are there for all to see. In the House vote, all 198 democrats plus 87 Republicans sell-outs voted “yes” on the funding Obamacare issue, while 144 Republicans voted “NO” including Tom Graves and Doug Collins. There is a conservative base there to build on. Most of those folks are TEA Party affiliates or were put there by TEA Party voters. They ran for the job espousing TEA party principles, which are American principles. Most stood strong and voted the way their constituents wanted. Of course, it goes without saying that both of Georgia’s Senators, Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson, stood with Harry Reid in the Senate. They had their reasons I suppose, but I cannot see why? It looks like a sell out to me.
A major change in party thinking is required if the GOP expects to ever become viable once again within the framework under which it was originally established, not a democrat clone. The party machine is rusted, (aged) the internal parts corroded (corrupted) and the image, like a watercolor painting in a soft rain, smeared, blurry and all but indecipherable. But the GOP problems started earlier when they allowed Obama to disregard the Constitution, engage in illegal activities that has resulted in the death of Americans (F&F and Benghazi), dispense taxpayer funds to disastrous ‘green’ projects and unions,
sending out his SWAT minions, in various uniforms, to harass and intimidate farmers. builders, gold miners, loggers, home schoolers and manufacturers. The GOP did not challenge the despot then, what makes them think they can now? It’s the next generation that will do that. The current lot cannot stand unified together when old fools like McCain constantly throw sand in the machines gears.
So, what to do? A report today says that John Boehner’s position as House Speaker is secure. That may be, but his position in his Ohio House district is under challenge. Clearly, change within the GOP is coming. Slowly the ranks will be filled with conservative thinkers, ex-military types, many of whom are TEA Party supporters, Oath Keepers or members of other patriotic organizations, now deemed terrorists by Obama and Homeland Security. Representative and former Lt. Col. Allen West is not forgotten, Dr. Ben Carlson is ready, Our own Herman Cain will be there too, I predict, ready to do his part.
Our very Conservative 14th District House Rep., Tom Graves said: “We’ve been most successful when we stand, unified, behind what we believe philosophically and policy wise. I mean the House is strong in that regard, and we’ll continue to do that.” As much as I hate to quote a liberal on anything, former Atlanta Mayor, Andrew Young put his finger on a major problem when he said: “We’ve got probably the dumbest Congress we’ve had in a long time. They don’t have passports. They haven’t been anywhere. When I was in Congress, almost everybody in Congress before me had been in the Second World War or in the Korean War. They knew the world. They knew America had to give leadership to the world. We either gave leadership to the world through vision and creative, nonviolent means like education, trade, or we ended up at war. … and therein lies is the answer to our political salvation, finding conservative candidates from among the thousands of qualified returning military veterans to challenge the collaborating GOP incumbents for their eventual replacement. Go get em!
