Skip to comments.As Country Club Republicans Link Up With The Democratic Ruling Class, Millions Of Voters
Posted on 02/21/2013 8:04:48 PM PST by prairiebreeze
--snip-- The ever-growing U.S. government has an edgy social, ethical, and political character. It is distasteful to a majority of persons who vote Republican and to independent voters, as well as to perhaps one fifth of those who vote Democrat. The Republican leaderships kinship with the socio-political class that runs modern government is deep. Country class Americans have but to glance at the Media to hear themselves insulted from on high as greedy, racist, violent, ignorant extremists. Yet far has it been from the Republican leadership to defend them. Whenever possible, the Republican Establishment has chosen candidates for office especially the Presidency who have ignored, soft-pedaled or given mere lip service to their voters identities and concerns.
Thus public opinion polls confirm that some two thirds of Americans feel that government is them not us, that government has been taking the country in the wrong direction, and that such sentiments largely parallel partisan identification: While a majority of Democrats feel that officials who bear that label represent them well, only about a fourth of Republican voters and an even smaller proportion of independents trust Republican officials to be on their side. Again: While the ruling class is well represented by the Democratic Party, the country class is not represented politically by the Republican Party or by any other. Well or badly, its demand for representation will be met.

I was forced to delete some words from the title in order to get it to post. Sorry!
Mark Levin read the entire article on his show today.
Clear reasoning why I no longer have a party affiliation.
The GOPe looks to be slaughtered in 2014 it seems to me
The Country-Club-Republicans, Republicans In Name Only, (RINOs), and GOP-Elite deserve to be called what they really are: LEFT-WING REPUBLICANS.
All they do is circle to the Left around THEIR betters - - - The Democrats.
Fly your Gadsden Flag proudly, and attend to take over your local Republican Party Meetings, FREEPERS!
“Though Americas ruling class is neither as narrow as that of Communist regimes nor as broadly preclusive as that of the European Union, the Republican leaderships preference for acting as part of the ruling class rather than as representatives of voters who feel set upon has begun to produce the sort of soft pre-emption of opposition and bitterness between rulers and ruled that occurs necessarily wherever representation is mocked.”
Exactly. Excellent article.
I just noticed my last 2 FB status updates which I was proud of, are gone. Weird
if the manager let a democrat into my country club he would be unemployed in about 20 minutes.
Gosh it is bad enough knowing those @#%^&* exist, but playing golf with them is completely out of the question, and there would be daily fist fights in the grill.
Duncan Hunter called it right during a debate in 2007, the Ted Kennedy Wing of the Republican Party.
You'll toe the line, citizen. :p /obvious sarc
Now, from the article:
"In sum, the value of the label Republican is problematic."
Here's the value:
The Republican Party = The "Stupid" Party.
Republican = Stupid.
Another must-read: Angelo Codevilla’s original article, America’s Ruling Class and the Perils of Revolution.
The article at the following link will explain a lot about RINOs and super-rich RATS.
No, the GOP is The Evil Party, ver. 2.0 .
If the GOP is not evil, it truly has some uninformed primary voters. I suspect that a large number of these are already backing Jebbie too.
