Listened to John Boehner yesterday on Stephie’s show and all I heard was how the Republicans were going to do everything they could this year to out democrat the democrats. So much for conservative principles.

Because Republicans have caved on so many conservative principles that its hard to say their not Democrats. If the Republican Party wants to be a majority party ever again, it has got to have meaningful differences with the other party, not be “Dem lite”. Our leaders have become that which they once espoused to oppose.

Only when the GOP again returns to being concerned about conservatism of American core principles, America and its citizens, rather than their own personal empowerment and politics, will it ever become a force for the preservation of America. The GOP needs leadership and it needs patriotic dedication — two things TOTALLY lost even before the present administration.

Pretty simple:

Enforce the Bill of Rights

Disband all agencies and programs that infringe on personal responsibility, industry, and volition (get the government out of the business of doing business)

Change our onerous tax code into something simple and fair

Reduce government to the constitutional republic the founders intended

Get us the he11 out of the un and move their facility to some third world cesspool and let them play their silly little games off the main stage.

Just a start.

I just sent back my GOP Census form. It was all bubble answers and a spot for money donations. No place for comments, so I made on where the contribution part was. I basically told them what I do in every letter in send them that I support only specific candidates and will not send them any money while they push and support RINO’s over conservative candidates.

One questions was, do you favor stopping illegal immigration? I answered yes but wrote next to it about their current nominee pushing for amnesty and how he sucks.

I am sure that it will get the same attention the invoice I sent them back in February for my money back will get.

The problem is not the degree of conservatism of our candidates. The problem is that Republican politicians are now more interested in politics than principles. The Republican resurgence started off on the right track but ended up with a bunch of back room wheeler dealers who were more interested in staying in office than in pursuing their policies.

Want to point a few fingers? Tom Delay, for one.

I just hate seeing Republicans turn into a bunch of limp noodles when they should be better defining and defending our troops mission as they continue fighting the War in Iraq against Al Qaeda and terrorism.

This scene in the Godfather sums up how I feel when hearing Senator Chuck Hagel talk about Iraq.

The GOP will be grand again when we settle for nothingless than our conservative principles. The Dims are full of hot air. We have nothing to be ashamed of.

The more healthy, curious and innocent children enter our public school system, the more zombies come out the other end. Unless, of course, they have aware and conservative parents ready to negate the indoctrination experiement at every turn. However, I wonder how man parents have survived THEIR education.
