Is it time to repeal the 11th Commandment in the face of the damage it has allowed to happen to this country?
Without question… yes.
Today’s lead story is John Boehner endorsing Paul Ryan for President.
For those of you just tuning in, no, Paul Ryan is not running for President. And yes, John Boehner is part of the reason why Trump is doing so well in this election cycle. Sure, sure… Maybe John needs to set the Johnny Walker down for a day or two and think a bit more about what he’s saying. And possibly it’s the guilt of being one of the building blocks of betrayal upon which Trump is constructing his tacky Maison-Blanc. But I’m more willing to lean towards Boehner’s complete and total incomprehension of what he and his Fellow Travelers have done to this country and it’s Constitution. Additionally, Boehner’s endorsement of Paul Ryan should effectively end Paul Ryan’s career in politics. Should… Should… end his career.
I offer that Reagan’s 11th Commandment has much to do with the Liberal, dare I say soft Leftist, Rockefeller Republicans regaining control over the party once Reagan vacated office. They effectively hid behind the ‘don’t say anything bad about us’ rule while espousing rhetoric the people wanted to hear and utilizing that misdirected support to expand their power and influence.
When Ted Cruz stepped out onto the Senate floor and correctly accused Mitch McConnell of lying to him the Establishment Republicans went into complete meltdown. Violating the very rule that has protected them all these years could not be tolerated in any way… certainly not by an individual who believed in the U.S. Constitution above the back room personal promises and collection of power the Establishment had wrapped itself in.
For the American People… The curtain was pulled back if only for a moment.
The Boehners of the world, add Paul Ryan to that group, know their power and control rests on The Curtain Never Being Pulled Back. It simply cannot happen. Ever.
That is why they fear Trump… and Cruz.
This is also why they have Scotch induced trashy novel fantasies such as a spiky-black-spray-painted-hair-not-flowing-in-the-wind Paul Ryan riding bareback and bare-chested into the GOP Convention Hall to save the Day from the Evil Constitutional Conservatives.
The RINO’s know full well Both Cruz and Trump will take their issues to an American Electorate who is beginning to pay attention. They have an audience who is starting to listen… voters who pay attention scare politicians who say whatever they want and do whatever they choose.
The Establishment Fear is palpable.
The very First lesson you learn as a young person taking Life Saving lessons is a Drowning Man will take you down with Him.
As I tap this out, we are seeing that behavior from the Establishment. They are flailing in desperation to preserve their power.
My only concern is we do not commit the same mistake Ronald Reagan made. We must NOT allow ourselves to set up rules which nourish the very kind of behavior the Establishment built this Empire on. The cloak of protection must be burned on the pile of everything else this fever has touched.
It’s time to get rid of the 11th Commandment.
Trump doesn’t know any of them… and Cruz knows they stop at 10.
Either way, we win.
