Iím Tired of Neo-Cons Being Tired of Conservatives (Rant alert)

I’m Tired of Neo-Cons Being Tired of Conservatives

Okay, so George Bush has shown that his ‘compassionate conservatism’ is really socialism with conservative lip service. Bush has proven that he is a liberal with a thin veneer of faux conservatism covering the big-government, big-spending core of his true self. So what? As ‘good conservatives’ we should ‘remain focused’ and pull that Republican lever in the voting booth no matter what our lying eyes tell us? That is what establishment Republicans want their conservative base to do: “Sit down, shut up, and vote as we, the enlightened, anointed insiders tell you to.” Mind you, they don’t want you, the conservatives, the citizens that have remained true to the American Ideals of the founders, to think about how they are using you and are selling you down the river to special interest groups. The neo-cons that control the Republican Party today are hoping that rank and file conservatives will mindlessly vote for Bush, keeping their heads in the sand, until it’s too late and they’ve developed a new constituency to keep them in power. That new constituency will consist of newly married Log Cabin Republicans (gays), welfare dependents sucking up to the new government tit on the right, and amnestied illegals now eligible to vote (as well as more readily able to take your job because they’ll work for less, especially since you’re being taxed to pay their government supplementals that maintain their standard of living).

Establishment Republicans are coming out and trying to silence the uproar over Bush’s amnesty plan for illegals. The establishment types (neo-cons) are telling conservatives to keep it down and ‘look at the long view, the big picture.’ What crap! How many times do conservatives have to compromise their values, their beliefs, their standards? Why do we always have to give in but we don’t see anyone else giving in?

The latest in the string of ‘keep your mouths shut’ articles I’ve seen was on GOPUSA, by the president and CEO of that organization, Bobby Eberle. The title of his article was ‘Bush-Bashing Conservatives Should Focus on the Big Picture.’ I wrote Mr. Eberle to inform him that conservatives were keeping the big picture, that it was Bush who wasn’t. To me, Eberle’s article, along with all the other ‘hey conservatives, keep quiet about how Bush isn’t conservative’ articles are proof that conservatives and traditionalists are the embarrassing, if needed, stepchildren of the Republican Party. That in itself tells you the Republican Party is not conservative any more.

Given a laundry list of items, would any principled conservative vote for someone who: Continuously increases government spending, driving us deeper into debt; expands central government power over the states; undermines the Bill of Rights with bills such as the USA Patriot Act; cuts deals with other countries that undermine our economy via so-called free trade deals that only go one way (only out with our jobs and only in with products); wants to give millions of criminals (illegal aliens) a pass, thus not only blurring our boarder, but driving wages down and encouraging even more illegals to flood our markets in hopes of yet another amnesty a few years down the road? This is George Bush. He is no conservative. Why vote for a liberal in Republican clothing?

There was a political shift over the last twenty years in the South, as Southerners woke up to the fact that the Democratic Party had been taken over by socialists and no longer represented their interests, thus causing the huge migration to the ‘Party of Reagan.’ Southerners, and other conservatives and traditionalists, need to wake up to the fact that the Republican Party is morphing into merely an evil twin of the Democratic Party, and they need to migrate to another political entity. It could even happen this election year. The key is not which party conservatives and traditionalists are with, but that they stand by their ideals, stand on principle. The neo-cons have already shown that conservatives don’t have a seat at the table in the Republican Party, so why cast our lot with them?

Here’s something else to consider: Even if the House of Representatives kill this amnesty plan of Bush’s, and the establishment Republicans wink at conservatives and traditionalists saying, “Hey, we knew it wouldn’t pass, we just wanted to influence Hispanic votes by acting like we care,” don’t buy it. If the plan goes down to defeat this summer, once Bush gets re-elected in November you can bet it will be back with a vengeance, and the House and Senate will pass the amnesty plan. Nothing in the past 10 years, since the ‘Republican Revolution,’ shows me that the Republicans are conservative or mean anything they say concerning supporting conservative positions. No, there won’t be a socialist getting my vote this year, be he Democrat or be he Republican. As for me, I’ll be voting conservative, which means most likely the Constitution Party. I’m not throwing my vote away; Bush threw it away with everything he and the neo-cons have done for the last four years.

Not bad. I heard we are going to use the NEA funding to document the history of Janet Jackson's nipple armor! So leave these guys and gals alone.

I see. The attacks on the WTC and Pentagon mean nothing to you.

Go now and never come back.

"I'm not happy with everything GW's done, but it could've been a LOT worse had Algore won the election."

Good point, Marie.

But unfortunately, it is going to take much worse to make things get better. For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. When things get unbearable, we, the people, all of us, will take the action necessary to correct, be it hold our elected officials responsible or take matters into our own hands.

This is a discussion board... you are correct. But I have learned over the course of time, to discern between those who are truly seeking information and those who are not. In my humble opinion, you are in the not category and to continue any debate with you would be an exercise in futility.

Now, if I have insulted your sincerity... you have my apologies ahead of time...

Instead of making your vote irrelevant, why not just go out in a field, find a big rock and throw pebbles at it, mill about, and trample others.

Whatever happened to Don Morgan? :)

He got sent to the "cornpatch". But for what reason, I haven't a clue. Or have forgotten..:-)

This is about National Security, and the WOT. We are in the battle of are lives, and this is no hyperbole. Kerry just said in a recent debate " Terrorism against this country has been completely over hyped" Is this who you want as CIC? If the eclectic, collective thought of the people who invest in our markets, thought we were heading in the wrong direction, it would tank so fast, your head would swim. President Bush has done a masterful job, and this is the reason he has chosen to inoculate himself, against the dim agenda. He needs a second term, the country needs him to have a second term, and no rat should be allowed to turn over the security of our nation to the traitorous U.N.

We won't have that leverage after/if he wins Nov. 2.

You do not have to worry about President Bush's conservative "bona fides" When he gets a second term all things will start unfolding, if he does not get a second term, I will be looking for the mythical valley in Colo.

A point lost on many.
