We have One-Party Government, and the Confirmation is a done deal, as are ALL other Socialist Agenda items from now on.
There is no turning back now. Deal with it, because if you're out there earning a living, you spend half that time paying for handouts to parasites, lobbyists, and politicians who buy their jobs with your money.
Don't know that I've ever read anything sadder - or truer. Socialism is antithetical to Christian-like thoughts and values.
>> As I said from the beginning; it was all for show.
Politicians are too lazy to perform that kind of show.
What Paul and Cruz are doing is for real.
The current problem with Republicans and Conservatives is that they do not quite understand what they need in the way of coalition partners. Instead they look at it as though there's this 'big tent' and everyone of any race, creed, color, national origin or state of handicap can participate, and i suppose that's good, but that's not what the Conservative coalitions are about, and certainly not the residual Whig divisions.
Among our natural coalition partners are the Traditionalists for example. That group includes regular church attendees EXCEPT blacks, but including Hispanics. About half the Roman Catholics can be counted on to regularly vote for the most Conservative candidate on that basis. 25% of the Hispanics can also be counted on to do so on that basis. Certainly traditionalist Catholic, Hispanic and black business owners will also regularly vote for the Republican candidate. There's another class of business owners who will never vote for Conservatives or Republicans of course ~ and that's mostly because THEY OWN THE DEMOCRAT party in a number of areas and view their support as an investment.
Do we also want the half of the RCs who never attend church? Do we want uneducated Hispanics with no real property to protect? How about the educated RCs, Hispanics, blacks and possibly East Asians who don't happen to own businesses? What is our attraction to them? The Democrats sure go after all those folks who have an occupation that brings them within the shadow of a labor union, particularly the National Educational Association! is there some program we want to offer them that the Democrats won't? Think hard and tell me what it is ~ at the moment that union affiliation seems to be one of our targets, so how do we get their votes and allegiance if we are targeting one of their major programs for elimination?
See, tough problems are inherent in this business of coalition politics. Yet we have some who imagine it's all about the Fiscal Conservatism, or even Defense Conservatism ~ both requiring an interest in the way government revenues are raised and controlled! Remember when the highway lobby, a traditional Whig element, was pulled out of the Roosevelt coalition and added to the Republican coalition? Bet you don't, but that happened DURING WWII! We'd lost them in1932 ~ we got them back with a slogan "National Defense Highway" ~ and in that WWII era that sounded pretty good ~ high quality highways to beat down people like Hitler!
The full thing came together with Dwight David Eisenhower ~ a General, a highway program, vast amount of public spending ~ what's not to like eh?
We almost lost our anticommunist Cons in that period when it wrapped up with a JFK win. Thanks to a brand of militant Conservatism we allowed the Rockefeller Republicans to criticize, we kept them anyway, and the Democrats never ran a Cold Warrior again! Their viewon that ~ 'why waste money running a candidate THEY will not vote for' ~
There is a theory that the Democrats view coalition politics the same way we do ~ but that's just not so. They have Incorporated unions as an action arm of their party which allowed them to obtain campaign workers without having to pay them out of contributions. I could go on for hours how this one item ~ unions ~ brings about a totally different organizational structure and why we need to study that structure more dispassionately if we want to beat them. Our own structure has managed to pick up its own political caste ~ the GOP-e ~ which we really do need to study to see how we can rein it in, or maybe kick out of the coalition. They've given us 12 Presidential candidates who lost at least one Presidential waste ~ at a cost of billions of dollars in campaign funds.
As I said from the beginning; it was all for show.
we have idiots eating dinner with this clown and then now saying how things look good and the clown is open to compromise.
Yet again the usual stupid suspects think eating a meal wiht the backstabbing clown is great and some wonder why this country has gone to crap
I frigging despair I really do
