Thank you, Eric Cantor! 'Spending cuts and rollback of government are our only hope'
WorldNetDaily.com ^ | 6/25/2011 | Star Parker

Thank you, Eric Cantor. Thank you for walking out on useless talks, presided over by Vice President Biden, addressing raising the limit on our nation's debt.

According to press accounts, Republican House Majority Leader Cantor called it quits on talks between Democratic and Republican leaders because Democrats refuse to give in on raising taxes.

This, I am sure, is true. But we also must understand the deeper and broader issue.

We are in nothing less than hand-to-hand combat, fighting for what America is about and what it takes to get this country back on track toward growth and prosperity – determining whether we are, most fundamentally, a welfare state in which government runs the show, or whether this is a free country, in which free, private citizens run the show.

At some point, a crucial point, Eric Cantor, will be recognized, as a Romney type sleazeball.

Why? I’ve seen nothing but good from Cantor. Do you know something we don’t?

First, Cantor is a Romney man.

Indeed, one my my three tenants of real economic recovery comes down to this: we must aggressively audit every Federal, state and local government agency for bureaucratic overlap, agency bloat and excess regulations and use the audit results to start cutting down the size of government 30% now, with a goal of over 50% in 4-5 years.

This way, potentially trillions of dollars will be freed up for more productive purposes, like expanding industry in general.

While I'm glad that Mr. Cantor has "found religion" on smaller government now, I wonder where this "need for smaller government" attitude was 10 years ago. Didn't Cantor vote for: I will confess, I didn't research all his votes over those years, it's possible he personally voted against some of those measures. If he voted against all of that, I'd have a lot more respect for his position now. Otherwise, it looks like his problem is only which President gets to spend the money and wield the power. Or maybe it's a matter of party in control. Republican spending and borrowing = Good, Democrat spending and borrowing = Bad.

All I know is that if there's a RINO anywhere being challenged by a TEA Party candidate with actual conservative principles, but little political history, the RINO can count on $5,000 from ERICPAC (Cantor's "Leadership PAC"). He's supported such abominations as Scozafava, Trey Grayson in KY against Ron Paul, and a RINO Sheriff from florida in the 5th district against a very good TEA Party candidate in the primary down here.

Who would you recommend to take the lead, or be involved in attempting to get our national budget under control? I don’t see a very large or strong bullpen, but I’d love to have some names of people to watch.

They have failed to hold fast all the other times. I don’t have faith they will stand their ground. These walk outs seem to be just a show.

History affords us many instances of the ruin of states, by the prosecution of measures ill suited to the temper and genius of their people. The ordaining of laws in favor of one part of the nation, to the prejudice and oppression of another, is certainly the most erroneous and mistaken policy. An equal dispensation of protection, rights, privileges, and advantages, is what every part is entitled to, and ought to enjoy... These measures never fail to create great and violent jealousies and animosities between the people favored and the people oppressed; whence a total separation of affections, interests, political obligations, and all manner of connections, by which the whole state is weakened. Ben Franklin

Eric is not known for backbone. I don’t trust him as far as I can throw him. Neither does Laura Ingrahm. She put him on the grill and turned up the heat a few mos ago when she was subbing for Ted Baxter. She had Cantor nearly in tears by the time she was done with him.

So if he walked out on Biden without caving maybe he is wising up a little.

I'll bet myself a six pack of Moose Drool they cave..

That first taste, the best part of a beer after a long day. We want to make that better than ever. So we made Moose Drool. The name sounds a little iffy, but it's really the best Brown Ale you'll ever taste. That's why Moose Drool is far and away the best-selling beer brewed in Montana.

I hope they ship to Florida..can not sell my house to move..

Moose Drool huh? We will have to check it out and see if they are selling it in GA. If Romney wins the nomination we are going to have to get drunk on something to vote for him. LOL!!

Unfortunately, only some of the Freshmen are free of RINO and big spending histories. Allen West is a great example and has potential to be a leader. There are a few others. Michele Bachmann claims to be the "TEA Party Caucus leader, but I'm not 100% sure she isn't an attempt to co-opt the movement for the Repubican party.

Too many Republican partisans are not committed to actual conservative principles and TEA Party values. Rather, they want our votes to enable them to have more power for the Republican Party. Boehner and Cantor are excellent examples of this. Unfortunately, so are most candidates who received significant contributions in their primary battles from any "Leadership PACs" associated with major Republican leaders like Boehner, Cantor, Hensarling, and the rest. The "Republican leadership" is still mostly Party over principle, and will be willing to compromise if it gains them power.

He is the House Majority Leader - a very powerful and yet very important role in the GOP. I understand your apprehension, but from his POV if he wants to move up the ranks of the party he has to be a party man. His other choice is to turn down high ranking jobs in the House and the party in order to do what he wants... but that means, eventually and at some point, the party will turn on him for being too much of a maverick and not enough of a team player.

That, unfortunately, is party politics. Not saying I approve of it, it is just the way it is.

“I wrote then: “I thought we were on the road to moving socialism out of poor black communities and replacing it with wealth-producing American capitalism. But, incredibly, we are going in the opposite direction. Instead of poor America on socialism becoming more like rich America on capitalism, rich America on capitalism is becoming more like poor America on socialism.”

She is one of our national treasures. She has experienced more that most people will ever experience, and just look at there she’s landed.

You, too, are a national treasure, JH2.

Thank you so much for the ping!

Amen to that. Now is not the time for Republicans to waffle on such an important issue. They must stay the course.
