Red State-The Republicans Have Failed the Nation
About an hour ago I get this link. LWC gives me this heads up about Erick the Redstate going all in Tea Party and rebuffing the senior GOP leadership. I read the link, got suspicious at a lack of attribution or links and shortly used Google to track down the source. Yes, it’s a TP manifesto of sorts.
These people are destroying the conservative brand. I’m conservative. Not social-con or theo-con. I just choose to live my personal life conservative financially and boring straight monogamous. What that means to me in the larger sense is legislative compromise with the other party is part of responsible governance. As is loyal opposition. As is a certain adherence and loyalty to reality. Science. Facts.
This is about the GOP civil war. The war for it’s heart. For it’s future. Or it’s demise like the whigs.
If you like, hit the link and read it all. Ponder if you will, a post GOP nation.
Over the next couple of years, Barack Obama wants to raise the national debt to $18.9 trillion or so.
John Boehner, Mitch McConnell, and the congressional Republicans want to raise the national debt to $18.4 trillion or so.
This is not about the compromise. This is not about the fiscal cliff. This is not even about removing Amash, Huelskamp, Schweikert, and Jones. This is about beginning again anew — a process that cannot happen when the faces of the Republican leadership have been in Washington since 1986 expanding government while preaching the need for limiting it.
