Great site where I found this article. The Brad Blog. Nice Blog, nice comment section. Open and Free.
The article is by Richard Viguerie who states that the entire leadership of the Republican party should resign. I agree with his logic. The same logic of my previous post. Republicans have failed the Conservatives and betrayed the trust put in them by those who elected them. They have broken their allegiance to the “common sense” principles that got them elected. The government was broke then and it is still broke. Take note that those same principles got the Democrat Childers recently elected in Mississippi. See my previous post and the video in it that I lifted from Constitutionally Right.
The party is broke and we can’t expect the leadership to fix it. Perhaps they can. I doubt it. Regardless for Republicans to regain the trust of the American people a lot has to happen. I hope it does. I hope we have more vision than just waiting through the next four to eight years under Democratic rule so we have something negative to run against. Kind of like we did against Clinton, like the Dems are doing, running against Bush. We need to run on issues from the “bottom up” We need to listen at the precinct level to what the problems are then come up with Conservative solutions that work. Not more of those condescending pleas for money thinly disguised as surveys or polls. How stupid does the leadership think we are. Kind of like when a candidate calls himself Dick instead of Richard and takes off his suit coat and rolls up his sleeves on his $100 shirt to “get down” with the people?? Give me a break. When I go to work I change clothes.
We have a golden opportunity here to be the real party of change. We are up against it. The gun is aimed our way. Let’s take that as inspiration to make true change. Let’s live up to our promise of making government work, not for government but for us the people. We need real alternative solutions.
Regards, Live Dangerously Be A Conservative.
PS I see Pete Hoekstra co-sponsored an Energy Bill In the house called. The Main Street U.S.A. Energy Security Act (H.R. 6001). We’ve got to keep putting out alternatives that present “common sense” ideas. We have to support those who do. Link to the article about that.
