Skip to comments.Cantor's Camouflage Conservative Cant (every Freeper should read this one!)

During the debates surrounding the adoption of the Constitution by the several states, one commentator observed that "the government should be so small that it doesn't matter who wins."
Well, the government is no longer small, and this year, in Virginia's Seventh Congressional District, it matters very much who wins.
Republicans are not the only people in this country who are dismayed at the collapse of conviction and principle in the partys national establishment. Gone are the days when GOP leaders would defend valiantly the principles of limited government, the rule of law, and the rights and duties of individual citizens. Now the national party seems to quibble -- if at all -- only over how fast the budget should rise, and how far the government's intrusion into our daily lives should increase.
The only body in our constitutional structure that is led by Republicans today is the U.S. House of Representatives. So it is fair to ask, has this body and its leadership stood up to the vast tsunami of government growth, unconstitutional overreach, and just plain incompetence of the current administration?
Alas, the opposite is true: where the now defunct "Sequester" once supposedly limited the rate of growth of our national insolvency, the Republican leadership has caved once again, abdicating even the appearance of frugality and giving the green light to virtually unimpeded federal spending far into the future.

Cantor is particularly loathsome. I feel like I need a shower just hearing him speak.
Ditto the guy is a weasel.
He sounds like Al Gore to me...
As I've said elsewhere, having an (R) after your name doesn't mean you'll defend the Constitution and having a (D) after your name doesn't mean you'll be destroying it, either. Vote the candidate and their positions, not the party.
