Remember 2010, a great year for Conservatives when Nancy Pelosi, a true believing liberal was swept out of the Speakership in a Congressional wave election? The Tea Party worked hard that year and was able to elect many true Conservatives which gave a solid majority to the Republicans. Without the Tea Party, the Republicans would have never won the House. It was the Tea Party, a loosely knit group of many independent groups, who demanded that the government start answering to the people and afforded Boehner to advance his career. And it was Boehner who had now even resorted to blasting the very same Tea Party for the principled stand they hold. How's that for gratitude?
I always thought John Boehner was a moderate. He just seemed like a blah kind of guy who would do just enough to to placate the House sufficiently to keep the membership in the fold. But little did I know that he would actively court the Democrats by supporting many of their liberal causes, even to the point of joining with them to defeat the majority of his own Republican caucus. For some strange reason he thinks that will lead to success. I guess he has succumbed to "Beltway Madness", thinking that the Washington Post and New York Times represent the majority views of the people. Open your eyes, Mr. Boehner, nobody outside of the D.C.-N.Y. corridor thinks those newspapers are fit to read.
I became disillusioned totally with the man by three things: his willingness to cave on the budget quite easily after some show of defiance, his refusal to appoint a select committee to truly get to the bottom of Benghazi, and his now current beginning of a push to give the Democrats just what they want, eventual citizenship for a large number of illegal aliens and, frankly, the end of any chance of the Republicans to win national elections and the end of a large number of jobs for American, replaced for illegals being rewarded by politicians, will be an ultimate result. And even worse, he is doing so strictly for big business cash. If he supports the push for cheap labor wished for by big business in the name of the Chamber of Commerce, they will fund his campaigns so that he can try and play kingpin in the Congressional political fray.
Nowhere is the saying "Money is the root of all evil" more apparent than here and I think Conservative Americans, those who are most likely to vote Republican, albeit often while holding their noses, are reaching the point where they've had enough. I know I have, for it's time for some Congressmen of character to demand a full investigation of Benghazi and all of the other totalitarian steps being taken by a lawless administration to gut the constitution and enforce tyrannical government. Allowing lawbreakers to be given legal status in this country, while it might give the Chamber of Commerce their cheap labor, will also destroy much of the economic opportunity for good American citizens.
If a government no longer represents her people, it needs to be changed and a good starting point is by cleaning house in the House leadership team. I urge all Conservatives and traditional Republicans to get involved by telling their Congressmen to turn things around. If this means purging Mr. Boehner, along with Messrs. Cantor and McCarthy and many of the committee chairmen such as Fred "Lightbulb" Upton (the man who killed the incandescent lightbulb) from their leadership roles, so be it. The Republicans have a golden opportunity to not only maintain the House but gain the Senate, but they will not be successful without the Tea Party and other loyal Americans who find the current actions by this government abhorrent.
Stand with the history and traditions of American liberty and freedom or don't stand at all.
