Republican party takeover.
It is becoming more obvious that neither the Democratic or the Republican Party leadership is serious about cutting federal government spending or downsizing operations to balance the budget with no additional borrowing. Forget paying off some of the more than $15 trillion debt already accumulated, both parties seem not to want to actually cut anything. They seem to have become comfortable with opposing each other's policies on the pretext of appearing to be representing their constituents wishes, causing stalemates that gives each party what they really want, business and spending as usual. The actual difference between them in regard to the person on the street and his demand to reign in government spending, is becoming narrower by the moment. Unfortunately for conservatives, the leadership of the Republican party has moved left to where the Democrat party used to be, and the leadership of the Democrat party has become more socialist left. Both entities, encouraged by the liberal media, now regard ordinary conservatives as right wing fanatics and ordinary liberals as mainstream conservative America. Confusing, but true. Could it be that this gradual moving of the bar to the left pleases those in power because they all get an equal slice of an artificially bloated pie. Continuing the appearance of healthy opposition while in fact supporting the same agenda; more borrowing and spending.
Are they selfishly bankrupting the American people?
This editor blames the Republican party leadership for the mess we're in. Not because they are unable to compromise as the media would have you believe, but because they are too ready to compromise basic conservative principles to deal with the Democrats. Democrats, on the other hand, have forced liberal ideals on Republicans, hence the move to the left and victory for socialism.
How have we come to this point?
Could it be that the Republican party has been infiltrated by liberals to the point of eradicating conservative influence? I think so.
Could it be that the formation of the TEA party by disenfranchised conservatives and conservative democrats is a result of the American two party system moving left, away from traditional American values? I think socialism is alive and strong in both parties but not in the American people.
Hog wash, you say.
Well, tell me that Republican minority leader John Boehner, is a conservative? Tell me he acts and talks like a real conservative? Can you identify a single real conservative in the leadership? Just one?
Of the Republican candidates for president, Mitt Romney is the golden boy of the Republican leadership and probable choice to run against Barack Obama, but his past proves him to be a conservative in name only. Liberal or conservative makes no difference to the Republican leadership so long as he can be relied on to keep the status quo. Another liberal plant into the Republican search for a presidential contender is Jon Huntsman. How is he even a contender?
Luckily, their are a number of TEA party supported candidates but all are being slaughtered by the liberal media, who are determined to keep American politics a reflection of their own agenda. If conservative voters are not vigilant the media will be selecting their choice to run against Obama. Bachmann, Paul, Perry, Cain, Santorum and even Gingrich, would traumatize the media. That is why they have tried to destroy them before they inch out Romney.
It is my opinion that it is better to have a socialist Democrat as president, than a liberal Republican. For a healthy balance in America, the Republican party needs to be conservative, genuinely conservative.
The time for change is now, more than ever. The Republican party leadership needs to be replaced with real conservatives and all the old guard Republican politicians booted out by solid TEA party Republicans. Only then can America start to regain its financial stability and prosperity.
That's what I think. What do you think?
