Turns out that we can rely on just 19 Senators – though I understand a couple of the GOPers who went against Cruz had genuine reasons for so doing. Let’s call it 21 Senators who actually care about the fate of the nation…we need just 30 more to have a majority in the Senate. To work in 2014 to increase our numbers.
That said, the battle is clearly joined – the Ruling Class wants one thing, the American people quite another. Obama is simply too proud and too stupid to give ground. His Democrats are too corrupt to give up their place. The RINOs are too stupid and corrupt to give up theirs. Fine and dandy. We know where we are and what we need to do. This, by the way, is not a call for abandoning the GOP…the vote in the Senate today does not, in my view, show the true strength of our side in the overall GOP. I think we hold a majority of GOPers and GOP-leaning Independents…we just have some dinosaurs in the Senate which make it appear we’re weaker than we are. I think we can fully take over the GOP and turn it in to the party of small business, the middle class and the working poor – a more populist and libertarian party which yet understands the vital necessity of preserving the old morality. Perhaps I’m wrong and we’ll eventually have to go Third Party, but we shall see…we’ll know by the end of the 2016 cycle. If the GOP Establishment gets us another “moderate” nominee then we’ll know the GOP is done for.
Have at it on this issue, or any other which comes to mind.
