The Republicans

At the 9/12 protests and thereafter, many patriotic Americans were discussing both the 2010 and 2012 elections.

The fundamental problem is that while the Dems are utterly in the thrall of the Mighty Kenyan and his Red accomplices, the Republican Party is hardly better.

As a friend is fond of saying, "Today's Republicans simply want to take the scenic road to serfdom."

Two essays for your consideration on this topic -- read each in full, along with comments, please:

From QandO: The Republicans Are Lost; excerpt:

...But have the Republicans learned nothing from 2006-2009? Has the Tea Party movement made no impact on them? Do they not sense the rising anti-government attitude in voters? Are they so incredibly clueless that they can’t learn the lesson from Reagan’s landslide and the 1994 takeover of Congress?

Look, you idiots: You can win big when you strongly advocate smaller government principles. When you don’t, at best you tread water, and at worst you get your butts kicked.

Watching Cantor pour out the same old politician’s blather was painful. Based on that one video, I never expect to support this guy for anything. And he’s part of the GOP leadership, supposedly the best they’ve got. Well, if he’s one of the best, they’re still as lost as they were in 2006...

From Samizdata comes Asking the Wrong Question; excerpt:

...Until the Big State Tax and Regulate schmucks like McCain, Romney and their entire ilk are explicitly repudiated and figuratively (and in a perfect world, literally) thrown into Boston Harbour, I will tell you what difference re-electing the party that gave the world George Bush (either) will make... No meaningful difference at all.

Obama is the bastard child of the both parties, make no mistake about it. Nothing he is doing now would have been even within the realm of political possibility if the state had not already been vastly expanded with Republicans in the Whitehouse.

No child left behind indeed... they will be paying for this legacy for a very long time.

No one who gives a damn about liberty should even consider supporting the Republicans until they have had a profound and merciless internal blood-letting and made themselves worth voting for by throwing the Big Staters out. They are not even close to that point yet...

After reading both essays and their respective comments, please explain to me -- those who disagree -- why I say re my former party and political home for 35 years:

Good riddance to bad rubbish.

It took both parties and nearly 30 years to get us to the point Denninger explains here.

Thus, a virulent pox on both their houses.

No more compromises on the issue of limited government and individual freedom.


Alea iacta est.

As the leader of the GOP and of America, it seemed that any political capital that was gained or available by Republicans went solely to cover Bush from 2001-2008. (Rather than actually ending bloated government, nosey government, and nanny government-things that the GOP used to stand for)

I only wish that the rest of these Republicrats would have the courage of their corruption like Arlen Specter-just go ahead and change parties and be honest. In this way, they spare America the inevitable outcome that a third party all but guarantees; dividing the conservative vote leaving a lib-socialist plurality.

"Obama is the bastard child of both parties"... I posted something along those lines prior to the election:

If you want to reach people with your argument, you should refrain from using the term "Mighty Kenyan" or similar terms. The only people that will continue reading your article after that term are people that already believe like you. You're free to say whatever you want and I'll fight for your right to say it. However, if you want to reach a new audience that might be open to changing their mind, this isn't the way to do it. If you just want a pat on the back from the same ole people, keep up with the derogatory comments about Obama.

More and more, Democrats AND Republicans reveal their ugly socialist side. Driving more voters away from the voting booth in disgust with every election. The doors are now wide open for the 3rd largest political party in the US to step up. The party that embraces the principles of our founding fathers. I'm talking the Libertarian Party. Now don't waist your time posting that "Libertarians can't get elected" or "you're wasting your vote." Those old, worn cliches originated with the majority parties to guarantee their own re-election.
Considering that the Republicans are scattered and lost focus, and the Democrats have slit their own throats on socializing medicine and cap and trade, isn't it time to find out where common sense and our American values have gone? Look into the party of principle, the Libertarians. Go to lp.org for more information.

The roles of the "Stupid Party" and the "Evil Party" are interchangeable, except when they pass something in a bipartisan manner.

The dictionary definition of "Bipartisan" is "something which is both evil AND stupid".

Both parties are controlled by the same beast. The way the government is now controlled by the UN and backed by the bankers, it is likely too late for bloodless reform.

As I said last time around "forget 3rd parties, we just need a 2nd!"

The only real difference between the "two" we have now is which segment of society they cater to in office and who sits atop their political hit list. They're both draining us dry, growing government, assuming powers not delegated them under the constitution for various "helping ___" programs.

Putting it into more pop culture terms....

Who would you rather be killed by, Nosferatu, the old ugly white vampire, (the republicans) or Blade, the young hip urban black 1/2 vampire who supposedly goes around killing (change) other vampires (the democrats)?

I wish there were actually an answer that didn't involve outright warfare to turn things around, but my Hope™ for Change™ is running thin. We're far beyond the precipice of the slippery slope. Perhaps we may luck onto some sections that aren't covered with black ice or teflon slathered in vaseline, but objects in motion.... We have plenty of momentum and quite possibly lack the strength to stop without some herculean effort on the part of the citizens that have been taught that we have a "two party" system by the system itself.

The system itself, the "two party" system that is, remains the problem. You either have the power or you seek the power. The battle field is skewed by those who control it, propaganda, indoctrination, misinformation, force, lies, etc. are the weapons the "parties" use to further their ends.

Until we stop the slide and take off the God damned "two party" training wheels and get beyond that we're only waiting for the end of the ride.
