Much has been said lately about the “in-fighting” amongst Republicans for the heart of the Party. Many elected officials and Party leaders plead, “We have to stop attacking each other, we must come together, the Democrats don’t do this, wah, wah, wah.” Typical Republican wimp-out.
So Colin Powell and the R.I.N.O.‘s can run around and proclaim that the era of Reagan is dead and that we need to abandon our principles. But we Conservatives? We’re supposed to shut up and let Olympia Snow support Obamacare without a fuss. Or let Mary Bono support Cap & Trade without protest. Or sit idly by as the Governor of California announce he, “is happy” to continue providing free college education to illegal immigrants...all in the name of party harmony.
But in case anyone noticed, the more Republican’s act like 20th Century Democrats, the more seats are lost to the Left. Out of disgust, the silent majority stopped showing up to vote. And the middle can’t tell the difference between the parties...except that Democrats have shinier logos and better websites, so hey, go with the guys who look cooler, right? We’re so far in the hole, we have nothing to lose by fighting the R.I.N.O.‘s, Moderates and Democrats...and everything to gain by actually standing for something.
This President is deliberately burning this economy to the ground in order to rebuild it in his own Marxist image. The Constitution is being shredded. The press is a de-facto state agency. I want the GOP and it’s elected officials to STAND UP AND FIGHT! This is supposed to be the home of support of a strong military, of Teddy Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln, and Ronald Reagan. Act like warriors! And for God’s sake, act like actual men! Groveling to look like we get along with everyone is undignified, and I’m sick of it.
I don’t want to hear about whether or not we should walk precincts with Blackberries or, or, how much we have to give up on certain states and districts because they are un-winable. If the Democrats can take Iowa and Colorado, we can take back California, and Los Angeles, and Southern San Diego and every other formerly Red territory. This is war...and want the GOP to act like it.
Didn’t anybody notice the collective “Hooray!” when Spector finally left the Republican Party? Can you imagine the cheers if Schwarzenegger finally admitted he is a Democrat at heart? Or the roar of approval if all the R.I.N.O.’s were somehow excommunicated from the GOP? Get a clue.
Enough with worrying whether Nancy Pelosi, or the press or Colin Powell approves. Enough with worrying if it looks like we are fighting amongst each other. WE ARE. I want my Party back, and I don’t care who hears about it. Maybe when “they” see us fighting about what Republicans stands for, they’ll think we actually give a damn again.
