After watching the Republican lose the PA 18 race this week it's become patently clear.....the GOP is not serious about maintaining the House....and may be complicit in trying to lose.
Do you think Paul Ryan would be sad if the the Democrats won the House and impeached Trump? He still has delusions of grandeur that he could be president some day. The elites gravy train of politics as usual has been disrupted and they would like nothing more than for a return to the days of old when spouting off the right talking points was enough to get you elected whether you followed through with anything or not.
They don't know it yet but we are never going back. If we the people want to save our president from these swamp creatures that live only for enriching their inflated egos and their unearned bank accounts we are going to have to win in spite of our worthless party....we will get no help from them and they will actually be actively thwarting our efforts.
There's a lot of Republicans out there who still haven't come to terms with the fact that our own party hates us. They hate us every bit as much as the media and the left does. They don't want what we want, they are merely pretenders playing a role for their sugar daddies in the Chamber of Commerce. They want your vote and your donations and after that they just want you to shut up and let them run over you like the doormats we used to be.
Remember Thad Cochran? 41 years a senator who could barely walk and barely talk that they bent over backwards to elect? The one who is stepping down soon because he's got one foot in the grave? The one the GOPe spent ELEVEN MILLIONS DOLLARS on to smear a good man like Chris McDaniels calling him racist, sexist, bigot....with friends like this who needs democrats?
I wrote this post in 2014 after the GOPe cheated MS out of their choice for Chris McDaniel by paying Democrats to crossover and vote for old and washed up Thad.....
The old and washed up figureheads of the Republican Party are not the future of what will turn this country around. YOU ARE the future so fret not, all is not lost and before you return the federal level of politics to any sense of sanity, you are going to have to save your local & state communities first. If you are feeling discouraged today about not being able to vote out even the most liberal of Republicans, turn that discouragement into action. Go to your local meetings, go to your state meetings if you don't live nearby, make an effort to make the trip there once in awhile. All politics is local and you do have power at the local level, if you don't believe that, drop me an email at (firstname.lastname@example.org) I can tell you all about it.
Elections won't fix things, YOU will. After the people are engaging in the governing process that they should have been all along, THEN and only then will elections reflect the righteous actions of it's citizens. It's all out of order right now but the journey of thousand miles begins with one step and in the infamous words of John Paul Jones....I have not yet begun to fight!
Well Chris McDaniels is back and now that Thad is stepping down he will be running to replace him instead of Roger Wicker. We will not let the GOPe do to us what they did in 2014. Please get involved with helping Chris make it over the finish line as we know the GOPe will only do the bare minimum.
MitchMcConnell several years ago set along a path (with John Boehnor) to crush the Tea Party. They may have won that battle but lost the war. The Tea Party is more of an idea than an actual party....their "crushing" of the Tea Party has only lit up a burning passion to return the power to the people...away from the swamp creatures who look down on us with condescension they can barely hide. The MAGA movement is just beginning and we are going to have to get serious about organizing and building institutions that will replace or co-opt a very corrupt GOP apparatus.
Do not give money to the RNC or any GOPe affiliated group. Make sure you know who you are giving money to. They will lie cheat and steal to make you think they are conservatives...they are not.
They are the Uniparty and they do not want to win this November so act accordingly and buckle up...this ride is going to be even wilder than before but have hope....there seems to be a higher power who has different plans than the swamp.
Andrew Breitbart has the Republican Party pegged back in 2011 when he said "That's what the Republican Party has been for 40 years....afraid of the bully on the playground"
Not a lot has changed with the GOP since then except now WE (MAGA movement) are standing up to the bullies on the playground....
