I believe in “stepping up to the historical moment” and in doing so correctly, not errantly.

Mark Levin is doing an exceptional job of that with his book and commentary calling for a large group of states to convene and take back Constitutional government.

With that call he’s looking at the larger problem we face and responding correctly.

Meanwhile he’s supporting the current call to deFUND obamacare, while remarking on how the “status quo” Republican party of hand-wringer-do-nothings has made itself USELESS to us as our nation is “transformed” and lost to history.

Which is also appropriate for him to be doing.

He fights on all fronts at once. And tries to choose the correct response for each one. The correct response is important - not merely the urge and will to respond. Each historical moment presents its own facts and dynamic to us.

In the 2010 off-year vote, the tea party did absolutely the correct response to those circumstances. In the 2012 presidential vote, the correct response would NOT have been to sit home, refuse to vote, and damn all Republicans. I will tell you, as a proud Texan, IF that had been followed by Texas Republicans and Independents, Barack Obama would have won the state of Texas and its electoral votes would today sit in the Obama column. In fact, Obama would’ve swept the entire country.

It was a terrible dilemma, because of who Obama’s opponent was and especially in light of Romneycare and Obamacare. On another thread I posted that, nevertheless, voting en masse for Elmer Fudd would have been preferable to letting Obama voters have Texas. What a duo of placeholder candidates, eh? Romney and FUDD?? How appropriate...

Bad choices, but the best course in that specific situation was NOT to let Obama take the entire nation into his column. As it was, those who stayed home or voted hopeless candidates instead of choosing between the top two, gave Obama 4 more years and the nation new reason to weep, and to cry out in raging, righteous anger.

By all means, explain finally how it is that electing a pro gay, abortion funding, healthcare/amnesty pushing liberal instead of a a pro gay, abortion funding, healthcare/amnesty pushing liberal benefits America.

In detail. Without excuses.

We were set up to lose; the GOP is in cahoots with the gay, muslim, usurper. The last GOP general elections were slapstick, and at the very least demonstrate their inability to read the tea leaves. Dump the consultants, listen to the base, and get rid of the Mccains, Lindsey Graham’s, Rubio’s, and they will win handily..
