The Republicans had President Obama in a jam, and were winning the fight over the government shutdown according to everyone, well except for those paid hacks in the mainstream media of course. Yet, what was the result, the Republicans were able to accomplish the least surprising thing of all, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
Since with the deal that re-opened the federal government this past week, the Republicans accomplished nothing. Not mandatory compliance for Congress to also live under Obamacare, not the equivalent one year delay of Obamacare for the American people that was also given to Unions and large Corporations, not the repealing of the medical device tax; NOTHING.
Well, unless you count a 2 billion dollar bribe for a dam in Kentucky to ensure that Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) first and foremost sided with the democrats and against House Republicans during the shutdown, thus ensuring that the Republicans sold out the American people. And secondly, would be re-elected in Kentucky in the upcoming 2014 Senate elections.
Yet, as awful as Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's actions were this past week. I am even more disturbed by the pitiful number of Republicans that sided against the compromise and even more so at those who voted with the Senator to ensure that the bill to re-open Washington passed. In fact, so dismayed am I, that as a life-long supporter of the Republican party, I am done.
Since, it is clear that the Republican party and its establishment no longer represent me and what I stand for. In fact, it is even worse than that. No longer do they not represent me, they have turned into a party that simply acts as cover for the Democrat party against conservatives in this country. So I am done, and you should be too.
Since, while it is true that abandoning the Republican party and its political and fundraising clout is a difficult machine to lose. It is clear that conservatives, tea partiers, and Libertarians are no longer welcome; and that the Republican establishment is just as elitists and progressive as the Democrat's. Yet, while the Republican machine is powerful, it still relies on our support and funds to survive. Support and funds that you and I should no longer be willing to give.
Since while the Republican party, just like any party, will never be perfect. It is clear since President Obama took office in 2008, that the Republican party's principles have fundamentally shifted away from you and me, and towards the elites in Washington D.C. So lets end this out of control party and let it dissolve into nothingness. With the establishment being amalgamated into the Democrat party, and the people forming a new party. A party led by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), Tim Scott (R-SC), Trey Gowdy (R-SC) etc. A party that will actually articulate and stand up for our beliefs. Instead of a party where the tiniest of minorities does that.
I mean just consider the names of those mentioned above, the only reason they are elected as Republicans is because we the people spoke louder with our vote, than the Republican establishment could with its money. So to say that abandoning the Republican Party would lead to conservatives no longer having a voice in Washington is ludicrous. Since we barely have a voice now, and I don't know about you, but I'd rather have all my support and funding go towards a completely conservative voice, than a progressive one.
In conclusion, the Republican Party must be abandoned if we as conservatives have any chance of restoring the Constitution and the rights enshrined within to its rightful place as the highest law in the land. So let's say we roll up our sleeves and defund and destroy the Republican party, and form a party that actually represents us, the American people.
