I hope one day the average Republican will be as alert as Donald Trump and yours truly. I know the exigencies of life demand most American’s full attention but it has allowed the Republican leaders to run afoul of their responsibilities to the American People. I would prefer that the RNC, Priebus, McConnell and Boehner sign a pledge that THEY will treat all Republican Candidates equal and then fully support the nominee.
The Republican leaders have declared WAR against conservatives and HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES:
When a conservative was leading in the polls against one of McConnell’s rubber stamp Senators, Thad Cochran of Mississippi, McConnell and a group of Senators including my own Senator, hatched a scheme to persuade black ministers to urge their Democratic congregations to vote in the Republican runoff election. The threat was that if they didn’t vote for Cochran the free stuff they were used to would be cut off. McConnell poured $50,000 into the effort and Cochran was narrowly reelected.
You see, we can’t have extremists nominated because, as Karl Rove says, they can’t be elected! Mitch McConnell was one of only TWO Republican Senators who voted with 100% of the Democrats to keep funding Planned Parenthood and their trafficking in aborted baby body parts. One other senator, Lindsey Graham, failed to vote which essentially was support for the McConnell and Democratic position. I ask you, who are the extremists?
Then there is one of my favorite conservative Republicans, Ken Cuccinelli. Ken was Attorney General of Virginia when he announced his candidacy for Governor in 2013. In a three way race with a Democrat, Republican and Libertarian, Cuccinelli was narrowly defeated by the Democrat. Conservatives rightfully blame the Republican Governors Association and the Republican National Committee for not putting enough money into the race. The Tea Party claims the establishment sold the Tea Party out again, just as it did during the government shutdown when MODERATE GOP SENATORS DIDN’T HAVE THE GUTS TO STAND AND FIGHT OVER OBAMACARE.
Dede Scozzafava is the Poster Child of Republican Establishment leader’s gross malfeasance. The Republicans in the 23rd Congressional District of New York only had one choice for a candidate who supported Republican values and it was not the Republican nominee or the Democratic nominee.
Many notable Republicans, including former Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin, Republican Governor Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota and former U.S. Senator Fred Thompson, endorsed Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman rather than the Republican candidate because they deemed Scozzafava too liberal and ideologically indistinguishable from the Democrat. Scozzafava also drew strong opposition from the Tea Party movement.
Scozzafava voted for same-sex marriage in the New York State Assembly and she had also received an award from a Planned Parenthood affiliate in 2008. Scozzafava’s political positions included support for “card check” legislation, support for federal funding for abortion, support for President Obama’s 2009 stimulus package, and a refusal to rule out support for health care reform that included a “public option.”
Polls had Doug Hoffman in the lead and on a pathway leading to election as Congressman. Hoffman would have voted and caucused with the Republican Party and would have been a valuable conservative voice in the House. This scared the Republican establishment much more than electing the Democrat so they poured a million dollars into Scozzafava’s campaign just hours before she withdrew from the race and endorsed the Democrat. Scozzafave’s name was still on the ballot and the final vote was Democrat-73,137; Conservative-69,553; Republican-8,582.
Influential establishment Republicans have even aligned in groups and PACs like The Main Street Partnership and the Tuesday Group that represent moderate Republicans like Senators McCain, Mark Kirk and Susan Collins along with Dozens of Representatives. There is big money available for tax and spend Republicans and strong support from many deep pockets.
I know many Republicans are shocked that the Democrats get their way even with so-called Republicans controlling the House and Senate. Most Republicans do not watch the liberal news stations but if they did they would be shocked by who the regular guests are. The former National Republican Chairman Michael Steele is employed by MSNBC as a Regular Political Analyst. The Hanoi Songbird, John McCain is also a frequent guest on Lamestreem Media as is Reince Priebus, John Boehner and Mitch McConnell.
Donald Trump knows to what lengths the Establishment Liberal Republicans will go to defeat any conservative in favor of the John McCain’s, Mitt Romney’s and Bush family. The media from A to Z are willing confederates because they all want Liberals in the White House. Fox News is a top ten donor to the Clintons way above big unions. To hedge their bets the media feels more comfortable with a Liberal Republican nominee against a Liberal Democratic nominee. May I remind you that our worst spending spree in history started with George Bush and his Democratic House and Senate?
In conclusion, the vast majority of the American People are also known as the Silent Majority. We are also know by another word by Republican Establishment leaders, we are “Extremists” because we expect government to be small and efficient while allowing us to pursue happiness and enjoy freedom to earn a living and support our families as we choose. We may not swear to uphold the Constitution like our politicians do but we will die fighting for our Constitution while our Politicians and Judges thumb their noses at our precious founding document.
I know not what course others may take but as for me, I SUPPORT DONALD TRUMP.
