Dear GOP: You Get One More Chance
Ace of Spades HQ ^ | June 28, 2012 | DrewM.

Posted on 06/28/2012 4:50:38 PM PDT by Bratch

Dear GOP,

This is your last chance. If you blow this, I'm out and you need to be destroyed.

What is it? Repeal ObamaCare on Day 1. Don't worry about replace, don't worry about anything else. We will do everything we have to drag your sorry asses over the line this fall, including electing Mitt [...] Romney.

In return this is what you will do:

Instead of adjourning for pictures and tea and cake to celebrate getting your pathetic asses elected to 2 or 6 years on the government teet, you will immediately pass a one line bill that says, "The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (and whatever statute number has to be included) is hereby repealed."

That's it. Nothing more, nothing less.

Since Congress meets before Inauguration Day, Obama will still be President. Simply hold the legislation at the desk so the 10 day pocket veto clock doesn't start. If other parliamentary BS is needed, just do it.

Then as soon as Mitt takes the oath of office, before his speech no one will care or remember, walk the bill up to him at the podium to sign.

If this does not happen, the GOP must be destroyed and a new party built to replace it. We've tried the carrot approach (votes, money, volunteers) to change your behavior. Now it's time to show you the stick.

No more, "oh the other guys are worse" scare tactics. That might be true but it doesn't mean you are any good.

This is your one job, do it or join the Whig Party in the dustbin of history.

Written by little Drew M., a sophomore at Alfred E. Neuman HS.

By far his best essay, but of course this is his third try at 10th grade.

Those gutless pussies do need their feet held to the flames, nay, shoved in the coals. Heck, most of the teaparty noobs are already suckling at banker teat...

That explains the profanity I had to edit out.

My momma always said that cursing was a sign of poor vocabulary. The older I get, the smarter she gets.

How many last chances have the Republicans had over the past 20 years? They keep failing but we still idiots that convince themselves the most liberal and untrustworthy Republicans like Mitt Romney are going to save the country.

Bob Dole ran for President claiming that as a Republican Senator he saved Social Security, LOL.

The GOP-E isn’t scared of us.

Frankly, anyone that still believes the GOP is an actual alternative to the Democrats has been living under a rock for at least 25 years.

How many times has that been said over the past 10 or 20 years? Conservative make empty threats, Republicans keep selling them out yet most conservatives still end up voting for RINOs like Romney. The whole cycle is insanity.

It's stop to making empty threats and start acting on those threats.

Of course, they aren't. We never hold them accountable. Most end up voting for any RINO the Republicans put up. There isn't a bigger RINO with more of a liberal record than Romney, yet fools here have convinced himself he is going to turn the country around. The stupidity of it all is mind-boggling.

You may have more faith in the Republican Party than I do. I see no future for us in that repulsive party.

I do understand your approach here, though. Perhaps it would not be a bad idea to give the lowlifes one more chance to make things right. But I really doubt they will follow through.

Who is "they?"

Presuming the Republicans hold the House, the House will vote for repeal. In the Senate, we have probably a 50-50 chance of regaining control, and if we do, we will have a 1-3 vote margin. Harry Reid will lead a filibuster against repeal. We will be far short of the 60 votes needed.

So everything will depend on reconciliation. That can't be done on day 1. It will be tough to do at any time, but there's a fighting chance.

In any event, the great majority of Republicans in both the House and Senate will vote for repeal. If they fail, it will be because "we" didn't elect enough Republican senators. I don't think "they" are the problem.

That would be an inauguration to remember...before the speech, Mitt signs the repeal....

He can't repeal it with a signature. He can grant waivers while the attempt to reverse it takes place. The House will have to vote to repeal... the Senate would have to vote to repeal and then mitt could sign it into law. It will be a long, hard slog and the truth is that there is a good chance it will never be repealed... not entirely.

Personally, I think it’s time to take the battle to economic warfare. Find out the ideological stance of every entity one does business with, and if it’s socialist/leftist/statist, quit buying from the business.

Also, get out of debt, shelter income, that helps starve the beast...

"One last chance?"...and..."Name the GOP nominee you guys supported."

Did you read my post? And if so, WTF does your reply have to do with what I posted?

Unless, of course, you are part of the Neuman family.

I thought that I was specific enough, but in case I wasn't, "they" would be the Republicans in the House and Senate. I simply do not trust them to do the right thing. I could be wrong, of course. Time will tell.

The GOP does not get one more chance. The country does not get one more chance. It is done. The USA is Europe. But The USĂ as Europe does not have the great USA to take on its defense and to backstop the socialism of Europe. The USA has removed the medical innovation that our freeish medical system allowed and we had. Medical care worldwide must decline in quality and there is no bottom. There will come a time when there are no more effective antibiotics as there will be no society that is willing or can afford to do the necessary research. World prosperity must decline as he USA socializes its entire economy. There no longer is any economic engine to power the world's progress. If one can get out, go offshore, one can prolong the sense of modernity for a time but after a little time there will remain no pockets of prosperity. Some small countries, perhaps Thailand, perhaps Finland or Iceland, will metamorphise into a freemarket heaven but the great nations, in their dying throes will squash such islands of liberty and promise.

The Republican Party is very much an analog of the British Tories.

America and Britain each got one last gasp, one last shot at turning their societies back toward liberty and free markets and prosperity, We had Reagan and they had Thatcher. Those two dismantled the great enemy that was the existential threat and undid some of the chains that were bginning to be fastened on the legs of entrepreneurs and industry but by then they were but rare strong individuals in nations of rent-seeking proles and power-seeking elites. There are no more Reagans or Thatchers, or Washingtons for that matter. Our education systems have seen to that. That kind of vision and strength all goes into power seeking and corruption now.
