I put the picture up this morning to display my displeasure with the Republican Party, a party which has lost its soul and its way and no longer supports the majority of its members who have voted it into control of the House and Senate. The two Congressional leaders, Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, and their leadership teams have made it clear to us once and for all that they don't care what we think, they don't care what we want and the only thing they want from us is our votes. They expect us to elect them and then get out of the way and let them destroy the America we love.
If you don't think this is so all you have to do is look at the recent election. They depended on God-fearing, America-loving Conservatives to win the election and now they have immediately turned their back on us and thrown their weight behind Obama. Oh, it's not Obama as much as the Chamber of Commerce, but it doesn't matter because the result works to Obama's advantage.
Obamacare? They've caved, they want to fully fund this monstrosity and let it continue to sink its tentacles in so deep that they can't be removed. And they know it's a bad product, after all, they've exempted themselves and their staffs from it while saddling us with a disaster that is ultimately going to kill people.
Immigration reform? They talked and they talked and they talked, yet when it was time for the rubber to meet the road they have once again caved. Obama's nearly five million illegals who are covered by his executive memo, not an executive order, will be given full privileges of citizenship whether they become citizens or not and we will, you guessed it, get the bill. Meanwhile, more and more Americans will be replaced in the workforce by these illegals and our degradation into a third world country will continue.
There are many other examples but instead of digging deeply into them, let's instead take a quick look at the future for 2016. The future does not look good for Conservatives in Republican Presidential politics either. Names like Romney, Christie and Jeb Bush keep getting a nudge from the mainstream and, as usual, the Establishment with its ties to big New York and DC money tends to follow the cash. Meanwhile, a crop of outstanding and very capable Conservatives are out there, men like Scott Walker and even the longshot Dr. Ben Carson, yet the system is stacked against them by the corrupt handlers who think they know best. In fact, the only way that a Conservative has a chance to win the nomination is for all major Conservative factions, including the various Tea Party organizations to coalesce behind one candidate, thereby strengthening instead of diluting their voting power.
Frankly, I'm at the point where I'll never trust the party again, not unless we somehow can change it rapidly from within. But the big bucks and the media are against that and the leadership displays a great degree of cowardice, so its a huge uphill climb at best. I will continue to vote for true Conservatives who carry the Republican affiliation, after all, they have nowhere else to go for now, but I will never support a RINO and that includes anyone who won't fight tooth and nail against big government and crony capitalism as represented by Obamacare, Amnesty, continuation of a corrupt tax system, and federally controlled education of the variety of Common Core. To get my vote they will have to work for jobs for Americans, not outsourcing or flooding the job market with those who aren't Americans.
We're in a serious problem, America, and we either have to decide that we are really going to do something about it or just sink into the mire that Obama's America is becoming. It's a choice each of us will have to make and live with. Fight or cave, that's the choice. Sad but clearly true. Will we look like the little elephant who has been abandoned or will we fight for what we know is right? What say you?
