If Trump is playing the Buffoon…

… then Romney is playing the Fool.

Okay folks, I’ve made no bones that I’m a Cruz guy. But this latest attack on Trump is possibly one of the most idiotic. Mitt Romney did not run for President as a Nincompoop. But his attempt to go after Trump is the task of a half-wit.

The Desperation coming from the Establishment RINO’s is on parade.

It’s pathetic.

Of all the people to send out after Trump… Romney was not the guy.

If Mitt is the ‘opening salvo’, this is going to be a very interesting few months.

This is the cleansing sunlight We needed and We are seeing everyone’s true colors.

None of this can be taken back…

The damage to the Liberal Republicans will be permanent, regardless of the outcome.

But they continue to operate like they stumbled across a mixed bag of chew-able Oxycontin and Meth… they making as many Bad decisions as they can, as quickly as possible.


Flooding the Field

So Concerned is the Establishment Wing of the Republican Party that a TEA Party (Uphold the Constitution as it’s Written) Type may get the Nomination for 2016 that they are Preparing to Flood the Field with Primary Candidates.

This is being done in the Hopes of a Repeat of the 2008 Primary where the Open Republican Primaries along the Liberal Establishment Controlled East Coast will give us with the Establishment Nominee… Again.  Remember John McCain?  I do.

Could this Backfire?
When you’re playing this Game within your own Party… Yes, it could.

If there is no serious Challenger for the Democrat Nomination then the “Cross-Over Vote” could find its way to both Establishment and Libertarian/TEA Party Candidates.

If the Field is too Flooded the Establishment Vote will be Diluted allowing a TEA Party/Libertarian Candidate to move ahead.

In today’s Political Environment the Masses are slightly better educated and much more Cynical of Candidates and their practices talking points designed to lure their votes.

So, yes… it could be a gamble.

But Desperate Times call for Desperate Measures.  And the Establishment Republicans are Desperate.

So We’ll be witness to a putting all Your Eggs in an East Coast Basket once again.

TIL about the U.S. Chamber of Commerce

According to Tom Donohue, President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, it’s 102-year-old existence has been to “Help the Government whenever (they) can.”

This he said on Fox News with Neil Cavuto today (011315).

This seemed odd to me.  Very odd.

So I went to their website.

From the Chamber directly:

“The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business organization representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions. Our members range from mom-and-pop shops and local chambers to leading industry associations and large corporations. They all share one thing in common—they count on the Chamber to be their voice in Washington, D.C.”

No mention of their newly revealed mission of “helping the Government whenever they can”.

In fact, there is no mention of such a move towards the cooperation between government and business reflective of Fascism anywhere on their site.

Take a moment and visit it:  www.uschamber.com

One can only take away from the Chamber’s site that they represent the interests of Business… not Government.

Mr. Donohue’s proclamation might just come as a surprise to the millions of business owners who donate millions of dollars to the Chamber, including their local chapters, and expect them to be advocating on their behalf.

Allow me to be the first to say…

“Surprise!”

It’s worth noting that every time you hear ‘Big Money Donors’ and ‘Washington Lobbyists’ in reference to Republican candidates, think U.S. Chamber of Commerce.  They are also a major reason we continue to get Establishment Liberal Republicans (Democrats with ‘R’s’ behind their names) as Presidential nominees.  It’s a big reason will will see more of the same this election cycle unless we wake up.


A New Professional Sports Strategy

Only Play the Games you Know you can Win!

Brilliant!

Take a Moment and Imagine how that would play out in Major League Baseball…

The NFL…

The NBA…

College Sports…

High School…

Your local Little League…

“Just Concede!”

Of course we all remember Churchill’s Famous Quote:  “Give Up, Give Up, Give Up.”

Such is the stated “Strategy” held by The Progressive Wing of the Republican Party.

This is why Leftists like Nancy Pelosi long for “the return of the Republican Party of old”…

Well no kidding. I’m sure that is a sentiment shared by the Entire Democrat Party and 80% of their “Loyal Opposition” on the Hill.

What is so ridiculous about Current Republicans such as McCain along with those who have friendships with them like Sowell and Charles Kesler is the absolute failure to comprehend Communication of Ideas.  What I mean by this is if you are telling me that you do not, in fact, agree with the Leftists then you should be the First in line at Every Given Opportunity to Communicate those differences in Ideology.  Yet your Strategy is to only fight the battles you know you can win.

I would offer that even should you lose a Battle you have gained the opportunity to Communicate Freedom and Liberty of the Individual… and maybe, just maybe a person who thought they stood in strong opposition to you might change their mind come the NEXT BATTLE.  By not fighting for Freedom and Liberty for that person who thinks you’re terrible you do nothing but reinforce whatever fantasy they foster.

You also allow the Socialists to script the narrative.

With that in mind, how much more Harmful can a Strategy be?

I have stated before; With friends like McCain who needs Enemies?  And I mean it.

The unfortunate aspect of this “Path to Victory” is it permeates the Republican Party.  The only upside are the lines are being drawn between those who subscribe to it and those who do not… which allows those of us out here paying attention to see clearly who has the heart to fight for us and who simply spew platitudes when it safe to do so.

The idea that we must forfeit fighting for some of what’s Right and Just is stupid and self-defeating.  You would think it would be simple for the Lindsey Graham’s of the world to look at where we are as a country.  It took 50-years of their “Strategy” to get us here.

I’m with Cruz on this.  As far as I’m concerned one must be either completely unaware of what this Country was Founded on, or in agreement with those on the Left to believe such a Strategy has any merit.  That is the dividing line for me.

In the end,

I’ve read Sun Tzu, and no where in that text do I find Occasionally Surrendering as a viable way to win anything.  This War is about Communicating!  And, Not Fighting is Not Communicating.  You don’t always have to “Win”.  But you’ll certainly not get the attention of the Voters by throwing your hands up in the air.

I already know what Rommel would say…

Let me go blow the dust off of Clausewitz and flip through him just in case I missed something.

(I think I’ll approach Nike and see what they think about “Just Concede” being their new slogan.  I could order up some shirts for the Senator’s Annual Softball Game.)


Why the “Republicans” can No Longer run on Limited Government

A New Gallup poll has American’s seeing Big Government as the greatest threat to the United States.

To the tune of 72%!

This is very bad news for the majority of the Republican Party.

It has long been the tradition of Republican Candidates to run on Limited Government.  This is typically paired with a promise to necessarily reduce it’s size as well.

In fact, many a Republican has won elected office using just such rhetoric.

Well… times are changing, and this news from Gallup cannot be helpful.

I probably don’t need to remind any of you that there is a new, small, vocal and active group of representatives who reside in Washington hailing from the Taxed Enough Already wing of the Republicans.  And here lies the problem.

The Establishment Republicans, or RINO’s, enjoy a large majority of membership within the party as it’s currently made up.  And, by being the heavy majority they control all things Republican, which has enabled them to shut out that “bothersome” minority of representatives that not only believe Big Government must be reduced in size and scope but act on that belief.  (For those of you who follow along, that would be the Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Trey Dowdy types.)

Well, with 72% of the population seeing the Leviathan as the single biggest problem we face as a Nation… the Republican Candidates who run on such rhetoric might be expected to perform on their promises!  Combine that with an already present TEA party minority who have been in the district long enough to know their way around, it spells trouble with a “T”.  The Horror!

This poll cannot make the John McCain wing of the Republican Party happy at all.   I can feel the urgent closed-door meetings being called as I type this.  Will they all switch parties?  Will they come up with a new message for this election cycle like “Hey… Government isn’t all bad.  We’re not watching absolutely EVERYTHING you do.”?  Or may be “Obama Care… we oppose it, but there’s nothing we can do!”.

Stay tuned!

This will end up being a very interesting mid-term election.


President Obama has directly Challenged Me.

In His latest TV appearance President Obama looked right at me then challenged me to state unequivocally “What I am For.”  He told me it is “My Responsibility”.  While it’s not up to him to define what “My Responsibilities” are…  he was speaking directly to me.  He didn’t even bother to hide the messages in the commercials like he usually does. So…

OK.

Mr. President,

I am For preventing a Government Take-over of 1/6th of the American Economy with the express purpose of destroying any hope for Choice, Competition and Free-Market solutions which are not only the sole protectors of our Individual Rights but the foundation of the once freest and most prosperous country on the face of the planet.

I am For a Government which abides by the Nations Laws as written and recorded for history in the Constitution of the United States.

I am For Freedom and Liberty of the Individual just as the Founding Fathers were.

I am For every Individual’s Right to Choose what is best for them rather than other people appointing themselves the Right to Force their world view upon us.

I am For the Government staying out of the Markets because when they do intrude we get Market Distortions like Banks being Forced to Lend people money who could never pay it back… Nationalization of Car Companies… Sky Rocketing College Tuition… Bail Out’s for Wall Street… and not least being the current destruction of Health Care.

I am For not doubling, tripling and quadrupling people’s Health Care costs.

I am For the People demanding a return to the Bottom Up Government this Country was, and still is, designed to be.

I am For calling Socialism what it is. Socialism.  I’m even OK with labeling what it really is… Communism Light.

I am For the Limited Government our Founders intended and calling out those who oppose this idea as Anti-American.

I am For a population which understands the Oppression, Destruction and Ultimately Death that Socialism brings to every place on Earth it finds support.

I am For politicians who vocalize the Suffering, Despair and Permanent Political Class all flavors of Socialism creates.

I am For not Printing Money just so you and your Ideological Ilk can Spend what we do not have.

I am For creating Private Sector Jobs by the simplest of solutions… that being getting the Government out-of-the-way.

I am For Repealing, Rolling Back and Dismantling all of the Socialist Schemes that brought us to the point.  All of them.  If we can’t do that, then Privatize them.  No exceptions.

I am For everybody having the Opportunity to follow their dreams… not you deciding who is allowed to do so and who is not.

I am For education which is honest about Statism and its demonstrable failures world over.

I am For teaching Capitalism rather than perverting it or best case omitting it all together.

I am For our representatives, especially the Chief Executive, respecting why this country was founded and what has made it great.  Then I Hope for the Change needed to return us to the shining light on the hill instead of Socialists bent on destroying it in the names of “Fairness” and “Justice” when they really mean Control.

I am For Democrats, and Many Republicans, being honest about their passionate desire to hold the Power of Force over the American People.

I am For Politicians being called out, chastised, demonized and shamed when they make televised Speeches which play on the ignorance of the American Public.

I am For Media Outlets willing to do the above.

Sincerely,

Mike

P.S. I know, if you’re honest, you will disagree with all of these things.  I expect the IRS targeted Audit… I’m sure the NSA knows where to find me.


Why Virginia was Important

It’s Fascinating to hear Establishment Republicans rail when the base finds disfavor with their Candidate and chooses not to support him or her.

But what’s better is when the very same Establishment Republicans turn their backs on a Candidate that they feel does not represent them. The Hypocrisy is thick.

However, it becomes appalling when the Socialist Light Republicans at the Republican National Committee do it to the Candidate for Governor in an Incredibly Important Swing State like Virginia… but wait… it gets worse… they turn their collective backs on the Candidate that stands the strongest chance to beat Terry McAuliffe, the Clinton operative Hillary needs in order to deliver Virginia to her come 2016.

Make no mistake, this is why Democrat Bundlers were paying a Libertarian Candidate to run against Ken Cuccinelli.

And in regard to the Establishment RINO’s involvement in making sure Hillary get’s Virginia in her column, there can be no doubt given Eric Cantor’s (R-VA) former Chief of Staff was assisting Terry McAuliffe’s (D-Hack) Campaign win a victory over his Republican Rival Ken Cuccinelli.  Add to that the RNC “making the hard choice” of spending 1/3 of the investment made for a Republican Candidate in Virginia during the last cycle according to Kirstin Kukowski who is the spokesperson for the RNC.

If there is any hesitation remaining in terms of pushing out the Leftist wing of the Republican Party there shouldn’t be.  If there is any doubt that RINO’s exist… there REALLY shouldn’t be.

So where to begin?

Stop giving money to the RNC and give it directly to the Candidate’s who need it most… like Ken Cuccinelli needed it in Virginia.  I know this would require your paying attention… consider it a patriotic duty.  Consider it a Responsibility.  Consider it whatever you want… just makeaneffort to do so.  Also, start your own “get out the vote” campaign.  Pay attention to election dates and call your like minded friends and tell them to vote… also have them call their like minded friends to do the same, etc. etc.

There are other organizations you can look to for advice, but remember they can all be corrupted by those Liberal Leaning types who say one thing yet do the other.  In other words, if you find one you like terrific!  Just don’t stop watching what they do.

We are all staring at Washington and wondering how the Democratic Socialists can be so brazen in their drive to remove the final vestiges of Freedom and Liberty of the Individual the founders gave us.

Keep in mind, when the Democrats own the Bureaucracy, find camaraderie with the Establishment Fascist element of the Republican Party and effectively own the Media… what’s left to wonder about.

Remember though, you win nothing when you give up.  And I, for one, intend to fight the good fight until the end.  But the end is closer than any of us ever thought possible.

So get up, get out and get going.

Oh yeah, keep a bottle of Scotch handy for events such as happened in Virginia.  You’ll need it when you realize it’s “us” doing it to ourselves.


The Establishment had Their Chance

In fact, The Establishment wing of the Republican Party has had 60 years of chances… and they are responsible for where we are as a Country.

I just listened to an analysis of what occurred over the Government Shutdown debate and the Debt Ceiling Debacle. The conclusion of the commentator was that “the old guard” of the Republican Party is putting down the rebellion of the youngsters newly elected to office. He went on to say that the “old guard” agrees with the newly elected representatives but they have worked hard to set up their seniority and simply don’t agree with the tactics the new guard is employing.

Well… The old guard’s tactics have landed us with a Bankrupted Entitlement system, an uncontrollable Spending Habit and a Government Bureaucracy which is unanswerable to the electorate.

There is NO objective assessment of the actions taken over the last 60 years by the Establishment Republicans that could lead one to believe they AGREE with the new guard in any way. In fact, the only conclusion a person could come to is that the Establishment AGREES with the Leftists in the opposition party… because they are rewarded by that party for doing so, and then by the folks at home because they are not paying attention.

We are here precisely because of the Old Guard of the Republican Party. Period.

Socialist ideas never win favor when understood. This is why the Old Guard of the Republican Party is so important to the Democrats. They need them in order to advance their agenda.

Folks, we are in deep. Very, very deep.

The Karl Rove’s, Dana Perino’s, John McCain’s, Mitch McConnell’s, Peter Kings and the rest of the Establishment Club are to blame.

And subsequently, WE are to blame for our inattentiveness. We are to blame for sending them back to office year after year. WE are to blame for not learning what Freedom and Liberty of the Individual means as intended by the Creators of this country. WE are to blame for not understanding Natural Law.

All of our ignorance has allowed the Establishment Republicans to come to power and aid the Liberal Progressives reshape this country into a demonstrably horrible European Social Democracy. Our ignorance has allowed our supposed representative to ignore the Constitution and the limits specifically written within it to protect us from them.

I’m finished pointing the finger at the Leftists.  While needing to be defeated, they do not hide behind Enlightenment Ideology.  They are perfectly happy to embrace governing theory born out of a decaying feudal system and frightened aristocracy.  They will always embrace the Elitist worldview which relegates you to a permanent class of servile know nothings.  In their minds you’re too stupid anyway so why waste time explaining themselves to you?  You might learn something and become far less useful.

However the Establishment Republicans, the RINO’s or Republicans in Name Only, do hide behind a philosophy which most of us believe in and I live by.

Yet, We continue to stand by and do nothing.

I have two suggestions:

1. Start drinking.
2. Start paying attention and learning everything you can about everything I just typed then call these insidious clowns to the carpet.

If you think I’m wrong… prove it.

I’ll wait right here.
