I’m tired of hearing about how Obama Care “Will not be Defunded!” as Senator McCain is so excited to remind us.
That’s not the point.
Let’s recall the Alamo… they lost.
But news to Senator McCain, the reason The Alamo is important is because they Knew they were going to Lose… but Winning was Not the Point.
They fought the fight anyway. They didn’t run away… they didn’t quit… and they sure as sh*t didn’t listen to people like you telling them they couldn’t do it.
It was a stand on Principle which lead to years of organized resistance against Imperial Spain (I’ve already received push back on this regarding Santa Ana… I’m leaving it, and if anyone genuinely cares they can challenge me in comments and I’ll explain. I know, for the record he was fighting for Mexico – at the time.) and arguably one of the most successful States in the Union to this day.
I’m well aware the days McCain stood for principles of Pragmatism have long left him. If they haven’t, then he must have very different set of principles than his constituency would approve of.
But every effort Must be made to Defund, Dismantle and Deconstruct this Affront to Liberty, Freedom and Free Market Capitalism a few Great Men of the Enlightenment gifted to the world.
We may lose, and We may Lose Often, but it’s the Right Fight.
Another Bulletin to the Very, Very Senior Senator;
It’s how the Left has operated for a century, and considering Socialized Health Care is the last piece of their Socialist puzzle one must admit they have done quite well.
I know you’re from Arizona Senator, but I might remind you and the rest of the Establishment Republicans to;
Remember the Alamo!
Oh wait… you’re not on our side.

I’ve been thinking about this a bit, and think you are probably right now. The fight itself has value, even if loss is inevitable.
