Ronald Reagan Discusses Why McCain & Romney Lost
John Boehner controls the power of the purse. He is the nation’s treasurer. He promised fiscal prudence. Fiscal sanity. 72 hours for the public to read proposed legislation. John Boehner is the leader of the Obama Wing of the Republican Party. Under Boehner’s “leadership”, the United States has accumulated an additional $3.8 TRILLION in new debt. Does that seem prudent or sane?
Does the chart to the left frighten you? Does that chart look healthy? Does it look sustainable? Some have suggested paying down the debt is mathematically impossible! Does John Boehner and the 219 House members know that this chart even exists? The Republican party is in a sad state despite winning historic landslides in 2010 and 2014. They won on two things: 1. American’s general dislike of Obama and his policies and 2. Conservative rhetoric. In every election in the past, I voted for the most conservative candidate in the primary field and then became a team player in the general and voted party line. I cannot and will not make this mistake again. If the Republican Party pushes aside a Cruz, Lee, Paul, Walker, etc. in 2016, I’m staying home. If your conservative score is not above a “B” per Conservative Review, no vote. No more team player. I refuse to wear the “R” on my jersey for a centrist Republican. The country deserves better.
The chart above should be a reminder that great nations rise and fall. Preventing the fall requires tough choices. A backbone. A spine. It also requires the willingness to tell the American people the truth. Look the American people in the eye and let them know we are on the brink. Incurring debt at this rate spells great peril for our nation. Tax cuts and balanced budgets will no longer dig us out of this hole. We need shock inducing change. At the top of the list are changes to social security, Medicare, Medicaid, welfare, the unelected branches of government (EPA), and our tax code/structure. Deep cuts need to be made in every corner and branch of our government; including defense. Is the country worth saving?
Will John Boehner or Mitch McConnell save us from inevitable collapse? Their campaign promises indicated they would give it the ole college try. Their lame-duck session action shows us they are hell bent on leading the Obama Wing of the Republican Party. They chose bi-partisanship, compromise, a ‘working government’. They are choosing not just pale pastels, but are actively seeking to be a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Blanketing your candidacy in conservatism does not make one a conservative. Massive debts, ObamaCare and mass amnesty were not the promises these folks made.
“Our people look for a cause to believe in. Is it a third party we need, or is it a new and revitalized second party, raising a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors which make it unmistakably clear where we stand on all of the issues troubling the people?”
If I had my way, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Sarah Palin, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Scott Walker, Jim DeMint, and other nationally recognized conservatives, would be the leaders of the Republican Party. A party solely focused on Constitutionalism. Bold colors. The Republican Party is shown it is not capable of changing. We the People have attempted to change the Republican Party from within. We have succeeded in returning them to power, but it has failed to change the heart and philosophy of those who lead it.
Does Ronald Reagan not sound like he’s speaking about the 2008 and 2012 elections? That is the strategy! It may not yet be time for a third party, but I sure as hell am not voting party line any longer. Simple stat on why not: John Boehner has put $32,938.38 in new debt on my household and every other household in this nation. Is that something you want to vote for?
