So we have to keep electing people who know how Washington Works and can Work that Way!
This is what is currently passing for logic.
Make no mistake, the Republican Establishment have a vested interest in convincing you that Non-Establishment Republicans are terrible, terrible human beings… and you MUST support Establishment Republicans because only They know how the System works in D.C. Of course they will leave out the fact that they are Responsible for how the system works in D.C…
So the Current line, like the latest one offered by Time Magazine (I know, I know… yes, they are still around.), is trying to convince us that Republicans such as Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Scott Walker et al. will destroy the Republican Party. Time is still pushing the idea that Ted Cruz’ filibuster trying to push a one-year delay of the employer mandate, which the administration did anyway, led to a government shut down (A shut down that nobody noticed, so the Obama Administration executed the ‘Monument Plan’ in which they roped off open air monuments trying to prevent access to the public… remember that?) which caused horrible things to happen to all of us. By the way, nothing happened to any of us.
Anyway, In every Wild Accusation there is an element of truth…
Let me ask you, if you don’t like the way Washington Works then what about the Established Republican Party is Worth Saving? Why not destroy the parts we don’t like and build on the parts we Do?
Clearly the Establishment Wing, and Democrats who are used to getting them to do exactly what they want, are not interested in Destroying those parts of the Republican Party… because THEY ARE those parts of the Republican Party.
Folks, anytime a Liberal Media outlet, which is pretty much all of them, tells you that you should choose one person or another person lest you’re going to lose everything and the sky will fall, you should immediately suspect a ruse. The Leftist Media has no interest in Republicans being successful, ever.
And sadly, most of the Republicans have no interest in being successful either, at least not in any way We would define Success. Well over 80% of the Republican Party now in office is far from interested in Limited Government let alone Freedom and Liberty of the Individual. They just want to be the ones controlling the money so they can spiff their families, friends and donors.
For those of you thinking that is an endorsement of ANY Democrat, pull your head out. 100% of the Democrat party is interested in the very same thing, and they will do whatever it takes, including telling you which Republicans “stand the best chance” to win, to keep their power and continue to push their Socialist Utopian Dream thus leaving them in charge forever.
The only difference between Every Democrat and a Majority of Republicans is the ones with a “D” behind their name talk about their genuine Marxist beliefs behind closed doors… the Republicans are so stupid they fail to realize those are the same beliefs they are supporting. I’m not sure what Establishment Republicans talk about behind closed doors, maybe that they were invited by a prominent Democrat to lunch? Who knows? Frankly I don’t care so long as we work to replace them with Non-Establishment Republicans.
So back to the point…
It’s exactly those Republicans who you are hearing the greatest number of “bad” things whom you should be most interested in. And the odds are you should also be voting for them and giving them money.
If they’re being made fun of, you should probably read for yourself what they are saying. Odds are it’s not what being reported.
They, the Evil Non-Establishment Types who are “Peeing Inside the Tent”, are the ones who will stand any chance of changing things as they are.
The Republicans making enemies are the ones who need our support.
The Battle is within our own Party.
And those who like things as they are know it.

There seems to be some kind of disconnect in the minds of voters. They hate how Washington works and politicians in general, but they are scared of sending someone inexperienced (i.e. a non-career politician) in because… they will screw something up, I guess. I’m not sure what there is to screw up; in fact, screwing up Washington could pretty much only mean an improvement. So, I guess they are just really stupid.

The House of Representatives was designed, designed, to have novices occupy those seats. That was the intent. Novices would be more apt to say “NO” to spending other peoples money on stuff they didn’t understand thus slowing Government growth. Only Socialists think Government can be efficient… and unfortunately Socialists keep winning elections. Not to mention filling all of the bureaucratic positions.

Those of us who support limited government and free markets need to realize that EVERYONE who thinks otherwise has to be voted out, not just the Democrats that think otherwise.
Great post, Great reminder.
