I agree that Pat Caddell and Doug Schoen accurately analyzed the current situation in Washington and that neither political party seems to be dealing with reality. I'm very worried that, based on recent history and some of the 'veteran' Republicans being appointed to important chairmanships in congress, that we'll end up with many repeats of the 'tax cut deal' that is, as Caddell and Schoen put it: "the meeting in the middle of two failed policies". I hope I'm wrong - but if the Republicans fail us, conservatives will have to consider (gulp!) a third party. However, I would much prefer to see the Tea Party activists persuade congressional Republicans to start doing the will of the people, and not a moment too soon, at that.
Well Jim... a 3rd party will never make it. But, what would help enormously would be conservatives getting serious about owning their local and state levels of the GOP. They simply don’t, and have not, for all too many years. Just darken the door of your own district committee - and see what lurks there, voting, and moving non-conservatives up the political ladder.
The American people will not be mocked by a political class whose definition of bipartisanship is the bankrupting of the United States.
We will not be mocked by a ‘ruling class’ be it Democrat or Republican.
