It is not too often that a blog, or even a major political idea can be summed up in one sentence but this one can.
I did not pay my taxes, support and vote for Republicans so that America would become the military arm of Al-Qaeda.
What on earth are the Republicans thinking?
Well first, John McCain isn’t. During the Senate hearings, he proved what a total joke he and the Senate are. He was playing online poker. When criticized about it, he took to his twitter feed and made a joke of it saying, the worst part about it was that he lost.
No, the worst part about this is that you are committing America’s military to be Al-Qaeda’s military.
While John McCain was playing video poker, because that was clearly more interesting that what was going on when deciding whether or not our nation would ally itself with the same people that gave us 9/11, Secretary of State and American traitor John Kerry was saying we had no way of knowing if American boots would end up on the ground in Syria.
This is the incompetent leading the greatest nation in the world!
Where are the conservatives? Where are the Republicans?
There are some conservatives who are out there on this issue. Justin Amash and Rand Paul are two who have been there.
Where is the Republican leadership?
They are too busy kissing Obama’s O.
House Speaker John Boehner proved again he is the most worthless politician ever to crawl out of the Potomac River as he quickly went along with Obama. Eric Cantor quickly proved himself to be pretty much less than worthless as he jumped on board as well.
Of the House Leadership, only Kevin McCarthy, the House Whip, is not on board, “yet.” In an interview with a California television station, McCarthy said, “I’m not there, yet.”
The only question is how long before he borrows John Boehner’s freshly laundered white flag of surrender and is “there.”
Syria may become a political earthquake in America and it should.
There are few things that liberals and conservatives agree about in America. But most liberals and most conservatives agree, America has no business attacking Syria. We may not agree on the reasons but we agree on the outcome. It is time for liberal groups and conservative groups to come together to pressure Congress that there be no war in Syria.
As for the Republicans, what is the point of even bothering to support the Republican Party anymore?
The Republican Party always likes to tell us conservatives, “oh, you have to vote for us or the Democrats will take over.”
It looks to me like the Democrats have taken over and the Republicans are doing nothing.
The GOP leadership has sold out on every major issue. They have sold us out on spending; defunding Obamacare, the debt ceiling, taxes and now they are selling us out on Syria.
The GOP has never stood up for the Tea Party since the Tea Party swept them back into power in 2010.
If the GOP sells us out on Syria, which they are in the process of doing; that will be the final straw.
I live in Eric Cantor’s district. If he has primary opposition, I will support that opponent and if he is nominated for reelection, I will not vote for him. Even if that means a Democrat takes that seat, I will not vote for him.
As for the Republican Party, to paraphrase the immortal words of Darth Vader, “You have sold me out for the last time.”
2014 could have been a great year for the Republican Party. It could have fought back and taken the Senate away from the Democrats. The Republican leadership has screwed the base over for the final time and it is time the base shows the GOP who is boss.
