Now, see if this makes any sense to you. Real Clear Politics, they have this rolling series of polls. Obama job approval today: 44 percent. Disapprove: 51 percent. Direction of the country, right direction: 28 percent. On the wrong track: 63 percent. Does any of that make sense with what is happening in the country? Sixty-three percent think the country is on the wrong track, yet we’re told that there’s massive support for the court’s gay marriage decision and Obamacare being upheld and so forth.
I’m here to tell you, you think that you’re in the minority. You are not. You are actually in a pretty sizable majority that doesn’t have any real leadership or strategy or pushback or plan. I mean, they’re helping Obama pass trade bills. They’re thinking about joining Obama on amnesty and have been for a while. They don’t want to speak up on gay marriage in any shape, way, manner or form. They don’t want to object, go to court.
You’re voting in record numbers. You’re voting in landslide numbers, landslide victories in 2010 and 2014. You’re being pushed around by, in one instance, less than two percent of the population. It’s totally understandable if you think you’re losing your mind. It’s totally understandable if you’re asking what the heck’s going on. You’re not by any stretch of the imagination alone. You’re actually with a pretty big majority and there’s more polling data than just this to indicate it.
Bottom line: The GOP rank and file is dicked up.
The Republican party has collapsed into mush; they’re so afraid of ‘offending’ someone and taking the steps necessary to get this country back, it’s pathetic. They’re out of touch with the grassroots. They’ve forgotten the reason why we elected them to a majority; we wanted them to stop B. Hussein and his socialist Frankenstein dead in their fucking tracks. We want a return to the principles outlined by the founders. We the People are more than just the opening words in the U.S. Constitution, it’s a reminder that they are sworn to serve the citizenry, not the other way around. They’re tasked with the providing the nation’s security and maintaining individual and civil liberties. Instead, they sit on the sidelines, or in some cases, jump into the political sack with toxic DemProgs who have a visceral hatred of America and have made it their life’s work to subvert the fabric of the United States and the freedoms of its citizens.
……The answer could be no more complicated than RINO Republicans and Democrats have one thing in common, and it isn’t big government. It’s fear of and hatred of conservatives as a political force.
……There has to be a reason why RINO Republicans would stand idly by — and if not stand idly by, would join Obama and the Democrats here and there to further the Democrat agenda. I really think if you do believe that, that the explanation for it is the one thing they have in common is a fear of or hatred of or dislike of or what have you, us. Conservatives. Because another thing they all have in common is they love big government. They want big government. They want big government getting bigger. They want bigger government swelling with more and more money. They want power and control over the money. They want to be able to dip their own hands into that pile of money and take out whatever they want for themselves. And conservatives, of course, want to do away with that. Conservatives want to make government smaller. We want to get rid of all the debt.
The GOP villifies, insults, and denigrates faithful grassroot Republicans and Tea Party Patriots for holding them accountable and demanding that they fulfill the promises they made. We expect that kind of filth from LeftProg Dems; not from our Republican representatives. The majority of the seats gained by the GOP in the House in 2010, was due in large part to the Tea Party movement; a fact that escapes their selective memories. We also had considerable influence in the 2014 mid-terms.
Instead of doing what we elected them to do, they cave in to the petty little tyrant in the White House and his tools in the Democratic Party.
……How many times can you recall the Democrats have won a presidential election and here comes a Supreme Court justice or a federal court appointment somewhere of a genuinely radical, practically communist judge, and your average Republican senator will say, “Well, the Republicans lost the election. The Democrats won and they get their nominees.”
When the Democrats lose elections, they push back immediately. They make it their objective to make sure that the Republicans do not benefit from winning. They do everything to screw up a Republican win, to deny it, to fight it, and the Republicans do not. When the Republicans lose an election, they chalk it up to a loss. They assume the American people rejected them. They assume the American people want whatever the Democrat president’s going to do and they stand by, stand aside and let it happen.
……The Supreme Court saved the Republicans because here was a chance, think about this, Obamacare could have been ended effectively yesterday. Had there been a correct decision, had there been a constitutional decision on that case, Obamacare would have been perhaps dealt its death blow, and the Republican Party did not want that. Because that would have meant the Republican Party had to come up with a plan. And the plan would have had to have included subsidies because Obamacare has been implemented long enough now that people are expecting them.
The GOP had several alternative plans to the ObamaCare disaster in 2009. The Dem majority discarded all of them and proceeded to ram ObamaCare through the Congress. Not one of those plans, which are feasible by the way, has been resurrected as a replacement for the ObamaCare disaster.
……Republicans should want Obama to lose. And why? Because Obama is doing terrible damage to this country. He is literally inflicting damage on this country with his economic policies, with his health care policies, with his immigration policies, with his spending. Everything Obama is doing is wreaking havoc on this country! Put simply, Obama is doing terrible damage — by helping Iran obtain nuclear weapons, by refusing to enforce immigration laws, by releasing thousands of illegal immigrant felons into our communities, by failing to protect our cyber networks.
Of course, none of that sinks in with the GOP, which seems content to let Obama run roughshod over the country. For his part, Obama blames America, Congress, and white men for his own corruption and epic fails.
Unless or until the American public gets pissed off enough to do something about all this, the decline of America will continue until we hit rock bottom.
