Do Republicans want to repeal Democrats´
disastrous Big Government or surrender to it?

Washington Examiner, by Mark Tapscott

Original Article

Posted By:mikkins2, 7/20/2014 10:14:41 AM

Washington Examiner columnist David Limbaugh had a column Thursday that deserves careful and thoughtful reading, especially by those to whom it is mainly addressed. What if the GOP wins the White House and Congress in 2016? What then, GOP, Limbaugh asks. "I would wager that many of my Establishment friends will continue to advise restraint, urging us not to drastically roll back Obama´s liberal policies, either because they´ll be horrified about the next election or because they have really, in the end, lost their stomach for political battle and their taste for free market principles," Limbaugh writes. "I suspect that many of them

Comments:
The reality is that the Republican Establishment has fallen in love with the money that can be made off of a expanding government. Its not the acceptance of the inevitable, its actively engaged and reaping the profits off of the taxpayers blood and sweat all the while grinding down the freedoms of every citizen, and profiting off that as well.

I am surprised this is even debated anymore. What action by the Republican Establishment in the last 15 years has done anything to the contrary?

Remember Mississippi?
Got Tea?

The concerns expressed here are exactly mind and were well illustrated by the attack on one of our own in Mississippi. Republican establishment types have turned off their most loyal constituents and I/we see no redemption or desire to redeem themselves. If they had an ounce of sincerity, theywould be demanding a full private investigation of the Mississippi senate race, which was STOLEN; YES I SAID STOLEN.

This is the crux of the battle for the Republican Party´s soul. Accusations that Conservatives are trying to re-invent America exposes the real depth of the problem. Re-instating the US Constitution and the re confirming our founding principles is re-inventing? Just because it has endured for eighty years does´t mean Statism is right. The Soviet system survived seventy seven miserable years. Was it right? It´s time We the People address this. It is our future, our fate, our Republic!

David Limbaugh is correct - just like Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, Rush and Sean. Even wonder why no GOP talk shows exist? Nobody would listen. We are the majority and are held hostage by self-proclaimed elitists.

The self-deluded, power hungry GOP continually supplies us with a supposedly seasoned, sage and all-wise nattering class. These are those that like their position more than your freedom. They don´t want to rock the boat even though the boat is sinking. I am persuaded that their camouflage is more dangerous than the democratic party.

Yesterday, after several posting of articles of Sarah Palin´s call for impeachment of the president, the true colors of MANY Ldotters were disgustingly displayed.

What´s the matters with you people! Aren´t we suppose to be a nation of laws --- Oh, no no no, you cry, it would be POLITICAL suicide to impeach the president.

I say, you DESERVE the government you have.

We not only have to fight the radical, extreme lefties that have taken over the democrat party, we also are fighting establishment, Rockefeller republicans who are like the democrats of 30 years ago.
WHERE have the Reagan democrats gone?
Conservatives are the only solution to the marxist, socialist, communist politicians of both parties wanting to destroy America, if it puts another nickle in their pockets.
If we don´t fight, our children and grandchildren will be riding "death trains" to Canada for a better life.

Politicians send young men into battle to die for their country.Our young serve with honor and risk everything.
Once a politician gets into office, the most important thing to them is to stay in office.
While dims will work to destroy the country, republicans will not try and destroy, but they will not risk their power to save or better the country.
The only thing republican politicians do is to slow down the progress towards communism.

We had a Republican government during the Bush years, it was a disaster that ushered in this president. Remember obama ran with a promise to reduce the deficit. As currently constituted this Republican party should never return to power.

We know (or at least believe) that absolute power corrupts absolutely. So it is when we send "conservative" Republicans to DC and leave them there too long.

The GOP is corrupt. From time to time, you must thoroughly clean house. You must strip everything down, scrub, replace things that cannot be restored, and put it back together.

The vacuum (pun intended) is there. Above posts point to the particulars. Time for a new party to fill the vacuum and replace the "soiled" GOP. Combining Reagan Democrats with conservative Republicans could make it a majority party in a few election cycles. We need to take that deep breath - and start.

Limbaugh is right about the majority of Republicans, who concede to the Democrats that their Big Government schemes are all about "helping people" - and therefore, must be the moral thing to do. So no, of course, they won´t repeal anything that intends to "help people". Republicans have betrayed the premise of the Constitution, which is that free people - Americans, at least - help themselves. When your politics revolves around "helping others" (which you can only do with other people´s money, oddly enough) you are a socialist, not a real American. I seriously doubt the GOP will learn this lesson in our lifetime.

Calvin Coolidge was the last Republican president who opposed big government.

The last Democratic president who did so was probably Grover Cleveland.

We´re almost a century removed from the destruction of the country the Founders envisioned.

At yesterday’s tan suit presser, President Obama said a whole lot of nothing.

It’s should be obvious to every clear-thinking man, woman, and child that, if over a thousand troops, tanks, and paratroopers drop into a foreign nation, it’s being invaded. Unfortunately, it seems that it’s not obvious to Barack Obama. ...Because the word “invasion” has magically disappeared from his vocabulary.

It may sound pedestrian to point out, but it’s critical to restate why it’s so important that our nation is called the United States of America, and not simply America. The full name emphasizes that the Founders viewed the nation not as one monolithic entity but as a union of sovereign entities delegating limited powers to a central government.To preserve this balance, the Founders put a number of checks in the U.S. Constitution, most notably creating the Senate, which allows for equal membership from every state, thus preventing states with larger populations from running roughshod over the interests of smaller

Mississippi State Sen. Chris McDaniel has filed his official challenge of the June 24 GOP primary runoff results against incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) in state court, he and his lead attorney Mitch Tyner announced Thursday. "Republicans did not elect the nominee on June 24," McDaniel said in a statement, adding that “we are excited for the opportunity for Republicans to reclaim their primary process.” "This challenge is not about the candidates,” McDaniel said. “It is about the integrity of Mississippi´s election process, and we are committed to ensuring that process is accurate and fair for future Republican candidates.”

Late last month, as members of Congress were poised to leave for their summer recess, the House Republicans’ top policy experts found themselves in a barren conference room in the Capitol’s basement, negotiating with the party’s most ardent opponents of immigration overhaul. As senior members of the Judiciary Committee looked on, the opponents — Representatives Raúl R. Labrador of Idaho, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Steve King of Iowa and Mo Brooks of Alabama — reshaped two bills to address the rush of unaccompanied children trying to enter the country illegally. Representative Michele Bachmann, Republican of Minnesota, was there, too, and she

On Thursday, the House GOP imploded over its border bill to solve the child-migrant crisis, pulling the legislation from the floor for lack of votes. And there, standing among the legislative wreckage, stood the proud senator from Texas, Ted Cruz. Not literally, of course. But the tea party Texan is once again smack in the middle of a House Republican debacle. With a reach as wide as his state, the freshman senator has his arm around conservative House Republicans. He has been lobbying them over Chick-fil-A and pizza to change the House bill “to end Obama’s amnesty.” By that he

Without even consulting the charts and graphs, few Floridians outside of Scott’s or Crist’s camp would argue with Enten. Both candidates’ favorable/unfavorable ratings are below water.

This rampant cronyism is one of the most insidious outgrowths of a government gone wild, and has become a swirling vortex of self sustaining and systemic corruption. Thus, the focus

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus

HOUSTON, Texas -- Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay was found not guilty today by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. This is the highest appellate court in Texas for criminal cases and thus brings DeLay’s political persecution to an end. The court upheld the ruling last year from the Texas 3rd Court of Appeals. That decision tossed out the convictions on money laundering and conspiracy charges. At that time Justice Melissa Goodwin wrote “The fundamental problem with the state´s case was its failure to prove proceeds of criminal activity,” according to a September 19th report on Breitbart News.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

WASHINGTON — About a month from the 2014 midterm elections House Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was already predicting a sweep for her party in the 2016 election. Referring to Republicans, Pelosi said, "Their days are numbered. I know that in two years there will be a Democratic Congress and a Democratic President." Pelosi has publicly urged former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to run for president and said if Clinton does decide to run she would win. While she was clearly looking ahead the top House Democrat was careful not to concede the election this November. Pressed about the prediction she made
