To me, this has become very simple. The reaction by the GOP Senators to Ted Cruz tells us what we need to know.
We are losing. And we are on the verge of being crushed. The political class has contrived to reduce, and to eliminate if possible, the essence of elections, which are a tool for the people to exercise their role in a system premised on self-government.
The 2012 election was about vaginas (amazing, isn’t it?). The 2014 election MUST be about “Obamacare” so that the 2016 election can be about state and popular sovereignty.
Will the RNC and the Senate campaign committee run an election about Obamacare? Are they even capable of doing so? Even to ask the question reveals is absurdity.
There are only 45-50 liberty supporters in the House and only 5-7 in the Senate. To call them “real Republicans” is a lie - John Boehner and his vile crew, Mitch McConnell and John McCain, Jeb Bush above all - these ARE the “real” Republicans, this is what “real Republican” MEANS.
I don’t know what to call our supporters in Congress. But f they break with the Republican party NOW, there is time to run the 2014 election, in all 435 congressional districts, on the single issue of “Obamacare”, by a fighting, inspired party that will roll over the dying remnants of statist Republicanism.
The congressional Republicans have spoken decisively. They will not oppose Obamacare, and they will work hard to make the next election about anything but. They have planted their flag.
It’s time for a change.
You have a point, but I think you're wrong. How do Republicans campaign when they are asking for votes? What to they say? No Republican runs as a squishy RINO. McCain needed to say: "OK, I'll build the damn fence to get elected." Cornyn is out there about how he's willing to do every to "repeal and replace" ObamaCare. He's lying, but he has to lie.
The RINOs have to lie to get elected.
