"If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures." - Alexander Hamilton

 

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates wouldn’t make any sense at all." -- President Ronald Reagan

 

"A thing moderately good is not so good as it ought to be. Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice." - Thomas Paine 1792

 

"It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men." - Samuel Adams

 

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

The simple fact is that the GOP needs to become the party of restraint.

If we can’t look back on 50 years of American war fighting policy and find a single beacon of freedom that we’ve created, maybe its time to rethink those policies.

Well, Senators Cruz and Paul may be able to set the foreign policy for the nation, if the Establishment Republicans ever let them get out of the box.

Right now, the “Tea Party” faction is getting, at best, only tepid support from the Establishment GOP. Powerful money interests, that have no respect for the counterbalance to untrammeled progressive state growth program that has been in place since the days of Teddy Roosevelt, are actively sabotaging the efforts to rally America for the Americans.

There are literally dozens, if not hundreds, of policies kept in place and entertained by the Current Regime in the White Hut, that are absolutely antithetical to what the Constitution originally stood for, the crowning of the primacy of property rights. This is one of the three self-evident rights described in the Declaration, which are “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”, the last of which was code for the keeping and enjoyment of property.

A widespread myth circulating and a tenant of the belief of Progressivism (in many ways allied with just about every Socialist or even Communist program ever devised) is that “property is theft”, an unusual construction of logic I fail to understand. And yet, there are some number among “the rich”, who, through either personal feelings of unworthiness or guilt, seek to decimate the ranks of those who could be called “the rich”. Very cynical on their part, as they fully expect OTHER “rich” people to give up an inordinate share of wealth, yet manage to get their own stores of the world’s wealth secured beyond the grasp of centralized authoritarian rule.

I’m talking to YOU, George Soros. If you truly believed the crapola you preach and fund in so many ways, you would simply GIVE AWAY all the acquired wealth you now hold title to, and turn it over to an “altruistic” committee, to disperse equally and widely across the face of the planet.

Diluted capital, by just giving it away, is the road to ultimate poverty for all. But let a man take his talents, and put them to service, continually taking that profit generated and reinvesting it in continued growth, then growth begins to feed upon its own success, and a vast number stand to benefit by distribution of the fruits as they are harvested. For an example from nature, look at a field of corn or an apple tree.

“Why Liberals Kill”
President Obama to exit Afghanistan. But their heroes—from FDR to JFK—promoted U.S. involvement in more wars than all modern GOP presidents combined.

I wanna believe, I wanna believe but I hesitate. You see I remember Dubya. He campaigned against Clinton's bombing and nation building. Yet he appointed Cheney and the war die was cast with the New American Century. Arab countries were 'doable' and oil would pay for it. But a Dubya expression has been turned around now it's 'They are killing us over here, because we are killing them over there'.

The neo-cons wanted war and they succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. We want to take out one arab country at a time - Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Iran in the wings. Will they accept that or engage Israel at some point. There seems to no political leaders willing to take us from war, grinding us weaker and weaker - 'they are chicken' - 'other countries will see us as weak' - 'they're killing their own people' - they're using weapons of mass destruction - 'isolationist' - 'remember 1939' - the beat goes on.

Go Cruz, go Paul. As your ideas ascend, you are going to be branded nuts. I want you to be successful before the country crashes.

"Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity. "

Dr. Savage on his program last evening, made an interesting observation ..

... Conservatives are high on Cruz and Rand Paul, yet just a few weeks ago we were high on Rubio, Lee, and a couple of others Paul( that was part of the Romney ticket,) and a couple of others, whose names escape me at the,moment, that have encouraged us to hope for conservative principles, and they by and large have joined the rest of the politicians. Dr. Savage is correct. He wants to believe in Cruz and Rant ... but what happens to them when they become part of the Washington politics? Time will tell. We’ll see ...
