Skip to comments.The Only Thing Left for the Republican Party is its Obituary
Posted on 12/10/2012 8:34:02 AM PST by Starman417
Despite its own insistence that it is very much alive, the Republican Party has now joined the crowd invisible. The sad pathetic truth of its demise is that those who once believed in it, and cared deeply for it, are no longer around to bury it with dignity. Its corpse has now become the dancing play thing of Washington D.C. consulting firms and lobbyist.
The most ironic fact of the Republican Partys death is that it was not a showdown at high noon on Capitol Hill that killed it. Nor a rare exotic virus that provided the mortal blow. It was killed by something very common in society and usually not fatal in Washington D.C... It was done in by a severe allergic reaction to the truth.
There has always been one thing Conservatives, Libertarians, Tea Partyers, Constitutionalists, and Social Conservative could always agree on. We all agreed in one basic primary principle. The principle of less government and even less spending. That very basic principle was the glue that held all these factions together under the Republican Party tent. Recent events paired with a close look at the Republican Partys actions over the course of fifteen years have now exposed that the Republican Party has been living a lie. They are not for less spending and smaller government. The foot of the Republican Party has always been just as heavy on the pedal to hurtle our great country off the financial cliff shooting out into space as the Democrat Party. The only difference is that elected Republicans have been pretending to be innocent kidnap victims of President Obama and Democrats, being forced into going along for the ride.
The current Republican Party Establishment is not the victim of the main stream media clouding their message of the benefits of spending cuts. On other issues that is surely the case, but not this one. The reason the Republican Party fails to articulate the primary virtue of less spending and small government effectively is because it does not believe in the words that are coming out of its mouth. It is a lie they are forced to say out of political necessity, not because of some deeply held belief.
The Republican Partys primary concern for a while now has been to deliver tax payer money for lobbyists and consulting firms who represent the industries that fill the campaign war chest. Erick Erickson at RedState delved a little into the incest problem here. These consulting firms are the middle men. The paper bag carriers. The mules. The blood sucking mosquitos. They are the ones who make the promise and make sure the Republican candidate delivers. They are in fact the buffer between corporate Washington D.C. Insiders money and the Republican politicians conscious that allows them to sleep at night thinking they are as clean and pure as a bowl full of freshly poured Clorox.

I went from Republican -> Independent -> Tea Party. The Republican’s today are wussies. No backbone. I do not like wussies, they’re just sheep waiting for the wolves to devour them.
And it cannot happen soon enough. Let’s start a pool promising bonuses to whomever manages to bury Boehner and his RINO pieces of Obamastuff-excrent with them.
May the flies of a thousand camels come to rest in their beer.
They are also reprobates.
I know, a "social conservative" descriptor. But this has sunk the GOP as much as anything else.
All it has to do is move drastically to the right and appeal to the tax slave. They stopped being concerned about the working tax payers years ago, so that's why no one bothers to vote anymore.
If they went back to the founding fathers and heeded their warnings, the republican party could come back with a vengeance.
The working class still has all the political power as well as the political funding. Court these people now before the freeloaders outnumber the workers, and the democrats will never win again. There's not much time left to save this country, so it's now or never. No more cowering in the corner.
So why is this the case, after Bush won in 2004 and the same thing was said about the Democrat party?
The Republican Party won’t go away, I mean what would the Harlem Globetrotters be without the Washington Generals?
SAME here SkyDancer. Same here.
I think it was the Whig party that became the Republican party. They were pretty cool back in the early 1800’s. But now all I can do is scream at the TV whenever a Republican comes on and gives a statement of some sort. McCain was okay as a Navy pilot but politically he’s a mensch, a nothing. And he’s atypical of what the Republicans are today. Just mush. G-d it makes me so mad. (sorry for the vent).
I do not care if an obit is even written about this party honestly.
Bury it in an unmarked grave.
Drag its rotting carcass out to sea and let the white sharks gorge themselves on it.
Outside of Ronald reagan, there really has not been any republican of consequence at all.
People are now saying that political transvestite Charlie Crist is going to come back to Fl. and run against Rick Scott for governor. My initial reaction of course is hell no, I do not want this worm Crist as my governor again.
But then I think, what has Scott accomplished in his term as governor?
1. He appointed Angela Corey to persecute George Zimmerman.
2. He lifted not a finger to help Allen West.
He’s worthless, much like every other elected repubic.
America - born 4July1776 - died 6Nov2012.
Sure you meant “mensch” and not “nebbish”?
Historically, a dictatorship follows a national collapse. After the economy collapses and the EBT cards start flashing "ERROR" or the money is inflated to worthlessness, the urban feral youths and inner city tribal parasites will invade the white suburbs to rape, murder and pillage. The frightened sheeple will beg 0bama to save them and he will respond by declaring martial law, suspending the Constitution and appointing himself El Presidente-for-Life.

I used to think so, but Romney has caused a lot of scales to fall off my eyes. As long as a guy like Romney is "good enough" for the Republican party, then the Republican party is a waste of time for conservatives. It is shocking and heartbreaking to see how many self-described "conservatives" here on FR continue to think Romney was an acceptable candidate, and completely fail to discern the difference between compromise and capitulation.
Voting for Newt, Cain, Santorum, or Perry as the Republican party "top guy" would have required compromise on the part of voters like me. Voting for Romney, one realizes upon actually reviewing his established record in office (not what he said he'd do, but what he's DONE), would have required complete capitulation. In EVERY SINGLE WAY (as opposed to a few select ways, such as the other candidates), Romney was a functional liberal Democrat. No matter what he promised on the campaign trail, no matter how good he got to sounding, the fact remains that his ACTIONS have always revealed a big government liberal statist Democrat. Actions speak more honestly than campaign promises; many desperate Republicans were eager and happy to forget that simple truth.
Voting "against" Obama meant voting for a big government liberal democrat registered as a Republican.
Will "we" or will the official GOP hierarchy, demand that Romney resign? Will they follow suit and demand that other big-government "Republicans" resign? Are "we" serious enough and united enough to do that?
If not, then kiss the Republican party goodbye as the political option for Americans who want less government and less spending. As long as guys like Romney pass muster, then there is absolutely ZERO point in being a Republican.
I printed the article and placed it in the envelope returning it with my 2013 Republican Sustaining Membership statement. No more money. This part of the audience won’t pay.
And I didn’t use my own first class stamp to save money for the bloodsuckers.
Right - nebbish - was thinking of something else when I posted. Then too it was early in the morning and didn’t have my coffee yet.
