The Unofficial Merger of the GOP
and Democrat Party!

Canada Free Press, by A.J. Cameron

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 3/4/2013 8:46:39 PM

People continually complain that with the different faces who have disgraced the Offices of the President and Vice President, the one hundred (100) seats within the Senate and the four hundred thirty-five (435) seats within the House of Representatives, nothing improves for the masses, only for those who are elected and special interests. This is frustrating and we need to assess why, so we can change this ‘continuing resolution’. It appears that the GOP and the Democrat Party have merged.

Comments:
Bingo Mr. Cameron. The great conservative exodus from the Republican Party started right after the 2010 election and has been gaining inertia with every passing election since. So scared of losing their power, Establishment Republicans point fingers and blame everyone and anyone but themselves in a desperate attempt to avoid reality.

Got Tea?

I don´t think I would say that they merged...rather I would say that the problem is not so much party related as it is individual related. We have career politicians. Career politicians are NOT public servants. They don´t care about their regular constituents. They only care about people they can get favors and money from. They also know that people are stupid and will almost always choose "incumbent" every time. Oh yes, people hate Congress but they all seem to love their own rep or Senator. Stupid. It is partially our fault--for letting it get this far in the first place. We have been complacent for too long. The Dems have always been powermongers and most of the time never cared about their people--they just learned how to pretend better. Our side is just full of inept communicators while the Dems have excellent manipulators. But regardless, they are ALL in it for themselves--okay maybe a few TEA party types haven´t fallen for the estalishment status quo for self-edification yet. But they will if they stay too long. Another reason we are at fault is because we allowed lawyers to be elected. Why were we so stupid as to allow that?? No, it isn´t really party merger as it is a bunch of professional pols all looking out for their own personal self-interests that has nothing to do with the country or us citizens.

We need representation for conservatives. We have none now. A third party is inevitable.

Dittos, OP and #2. It´s the "least bad" option - there will be pain. But it´s the only one I can see right now. We can still pray for a "road to Damascus" moment for the RNC - but don´t get your hopes up too high.

#1. During during its ascendancy(post Civil War to ´32) the GOP was the party of ´small´ government. Now in its decline, it´s the party of ´big´ government; just like the Dems. It´s only a level of degree. A center-right electorate wants less government which is why the GOP is deceased, awaiting a proper burial. Wonder what happened to those poor Whigs after 1856???

We are in a phony 2-party system where all the politicians have sold us a bill of goods.
The TEA party voters made a valiant effort to elect good Conservative Republicans in 2010 but Boehner and his boys have nearly stamped that out. I think the Republican party is broken and probably not fixable.
We need an honest alternative. Anyone who has attacked the TEA party in any shape or form is corrupt, period. We need an anti-corruption party. That is what most patriotic Americans want these days.

Us conservatives are on our own when it comes to national politics. There are a mere handful of true conservatives at the national political level. It seems the establishment GOP has been co-opted or outright bought off by the progressives. This will eventually lead to a new conservative party. I believe the establishment GOP are actively thwarting or undermining this.

do not vote for a republican unless they have courage and conviction. the only way to change this country is to either change the republican party (waste of time) or start a new party

If you lend yourself money, should you charge interest on the loan? It would depend on how badly you need the interest income, wouldn´t it? If you were desperate for cash, you´d pay yourself a hefty interest rate. After all, you need the money, right? If you fail to see the absurdity in those questions, you might be a member of Congress. But what may be even more absurd than those questions is federal finance. You see, the federal government "lends" itself money and pays interest on those "loans." The prime example of this practice is the surpluses generated by the

Ted Cruz takes heat for telling
the truth about debt limit
Washington Examiner, by Star Parker    Original Article

Once again, bitter feelings are being cast in the direction of Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz. With the House passing the “clean” debt ceiling bill and sending it to the Democratic-controlled Senate, it was clear that this particular bill was going to be passed and sent to the president for his signature. But Cruz didn´t want to let Senate Republicans, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., off the hook and give President Obama a blank check to once again increase the debt ceiling as we are drowning in red ink. He didn't want Republicans to simply vote against the bill, hiding behind the Democrat majority who were sure to pass it.

Getting a grip on the realities

The big story about the federal budget this week was the Republican Party´s struggle to deal with raising the debt ceiling. Last year´s big budget story was President Obama and the Democrats coming to grips with the so-called sequester, a policy gimmick that modestly slowed the growth of federal spending. Neither of these storylines came anywhere close to dealing with reality. The two teams of Washington insiders get hung up on these side issues because they´re better at symbolism than substance. For substance, start with the fact that the federal government is not $17 trillion in debt. That figure excludes

Ted Cruz forces GOP leaders to

“Vote No; Hope Yes.” This might as well be the official motto of the Republican Party -- among both the establishment wing and the Tea Party wing. But the Tea Partiers also use this Vote No; Hope Yes strategy. I first encountered Vote No; Hope Yes during the debt-limit showdown last October. The government had been shut down for more than two weeks, and the Treasury was a few hours from crashing into the debt ceiling. A clean debt-limit hike was on the table -- no spending cuts, no budget reforms. In the recent intra-Republican drama, Senate Minority Leader Mitch

Democrats dream of driving U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell into retirement this year, ridding President Barack Obama of one of his fiercest opponents. Tea partyers have the same dream, but they say the Senate´s Republican leader actually is too accommodating to Democrats. This left-right squeeze is forcing McConnell to scrape as hard as ever to raise money and try to extend his 30-year Senate career into a sixth term. The squeeze also may be his salvation. It obscures divisions among the critics who drive up McConnell´s unpopularity ratings, often cited as his biggest problem. His Democratic critics can´t vote in the May 20 Republican

The first five years of life form the heart, mind, and soul of each person and the same applies to popular movements that resist the imposition of tyranny. Some are stunted by early adversity, some become perverted by power, and others thrive against all odds until victory is achieved. February 27th will mark five years since the first Tea Party rallies sprang up in American cities and towns just one week after Rick Santelli expressed obvious truths long ignored in the public debate. Wrapping up his soliloquy on another government bailout Santelli thundered, “We’re thinking of having a Chicago Tea Party.

The latest Gallup poll shows that not all of America is in economic doldrums. What "state" has the most optimism about the economy? Not a "state" at all, but the national capital: the District of Columbia. In fact, only in the District of Columbia do people have a net positive confidence in the economy -- at +19, according to the Gallup poll. All the states of the republic have a pessimistic view of the economy, with the least pessimistic state in the Gallup poll being Massachusetts (where the negative confidence rating in the economy of only -1).

Other than the basic fact that he dearly wants a bill, Speaker John Boehner´s specific plans on immigration have remained shrouded in mystery since the 2012 elections. Now two key immigration hawks are pressing him for answers in a letter you might mistake as coming from Darrell Issa to Kathleen Sebelius. Reps. Walter Jones (R-NC) and Mo Brooks (R-AL) sent Boehner, House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, and the rest of the House GOP leadership team a letter asking ten detailed questions about Boehner´s immigration policies. The questions include requests for greater detail about some of the planks in the immigration

On Oct. 20, 1998, eager to avoid another government shutdown weeks before midterm elections, then-House Speaker Newt Gingrich acceded to President Clinton´s demands by pushing a 40-pound, 16-inch thick, 3,825-page, pork-laden spending bill through the Republican-controlled chamber. At the time, the Associated Press reported, “Gingrich lectured his own party´s conservatives, labeling them ´the perfectionist caucus´ ” for demanding a tougher stand against Clinton. It was four years earlier that Republicans had taken over control of Congress, storming into Washington on a pledge to shrink the size and scope of government. In the winter of 1995-96, the failure of Clinton and

When Speaker of the House John Boehner said that conservative groups like the Club for Growth have been “misleading their followers” and have “lost all credibility,” I didn’t pay much attention to it. After all, members of Congress are constantly saying the Club doesn’t matter — even though it’s belied by the facts: Since 2006 the Club’s PAC has helped nearly 50 endorsed candidates get elected to Congress. Some of the party’s brightest stars — senators Marco Rubio of Florida, Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, and Ted Cruz of Texas, congressmen Ron DeSantis of Florida and Justin Amash of Michigan —

"There is no education in the second kick of a mule," said Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. With some such thought in mind, Speaker John Boehner strode to the floor of the House to offer a "clean" debt ceiling bill and relied on Nancy Pelosi´s Democrats to pass it. They did. "Surrender" and "betrayal," are among the epithets coming the Speaker´s way. Yet Boehner was holding a losing hand. Had he added a GOP wish-list bill to the debt ceiling, Harry Reid´s Senate would have rejected it. President Obama would have denounced it as putting at risk the full faith and credit of

America’s Founding Fathers fiercely held to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—values which Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed align seamlessly with Obamacare. Pelosi explained why the law is “very sound policy” during a press conference Friday: To go to back to our founders once again, they sacrificed it all for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This law, the affordable care act, is about a healthier life, the liberty to pursue your happiness. That is solid policy, and the mandate is central to that.

WASHINGTON — Politics is sometimes the art of choosing the lesser of evils. For Sen. John Cornyn and other GOP leaders, it was better to let Democrats raise the debt ceiling last week than to dig in and risk a federal default. But tamping down a filibuster from Sen. Ted Cruz invited the wrath of the tea party. We’ll find out soon enough whether Cornyn pays a price — or, possibly, emerges stronger and more independent after the March 4 primary.(Snip)To many Republicans, the fight Cruz had picked was the wrong one.

A new poll puts Obama’s false promise, “if you like your healthcare plan you can keep it,” in perspective: 64% of Americans say ObamaCare would’ve never passed if Americans had known the truth in 2009. Moreover, the Fox news poll found the sentiment to be spread across all party lines, with 74% of Republicans, 68% of Independents and 54% of Democrats saying Obama’s unpopular healthcare program would never have passed. Even more troubling, 56% of Americans said ObamaCare was more about the government seizing control of citizens’ lives, versus just 40% who felt Obama’s plan was about improving healthcare.

President Bill Clinton donated his papers from his tenure as Arkansas governor to the Central Arkansas Library System (CALS) in 2003, and they are housed at the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies in Little Rock.
