Thirteen Republicans voted with the Democrats on the infrastructure bill. Some of them are people already on their way out, others hope to return in 2023. Those on the way out: who cares? But those who wish to stay should now be forced out. Better to lose their seats altogether than keep them. It must be this way because by voting for this bill they showed they either lack political understanding or have revealed themselves as de-facto Democrats – ie, people who picked the GOP label simply because that was their path to power. In either case, keeping them around works against our interests.
It has been a catastrophically bad six months for the Democrats and it was capped off by blowout losses in the elections this past Tuesday. Things are terrible and getting worse while the Democrats were flailing uselessly in favor of policies that nobody wants. Along comes thirteen Republicans to bail them out. It was an act of treason or idiocy and we must put an end to this sort of thing once for all.
The thing one must understand about Democrats is that, first and last ever since the party was founded, they are absolutely convinced that only with Democrats in power is America a decent place to live. They are certain that the health and safety of the Republic is only assured when they are in power. They do not believe there is a legitimate way for them to be removed from power. When they win, it is the holy expression of the people’s will. When they lose it is the result of a nefarious plot to thwart the will of the people. These days, they don’t even really concede elections. The last Presidential election they gracefully conceded was 1988.
Democrats fight to win all the time. They never give up their goals. If something new comes up, they merely add it to the list and they keep pushing their views no matter how strong the opposition or how many times they fail. Once a goal is announced, they never back down from it. And what was politically impossible ten years ago is now to be proclaimed the common sense, moderate opinion and if you don’t support it you are evil.
Democrats never help the GOP. When was the last time you saw thirteen Democrats join the GOP to pass a bill the GOP didn’t have 218 votes for? For the GOP, it is either have the votes or don’t get the law – for the Democrats, it is one of two things: either they have it and so will do it, or they’ll wait until some GOPers join them. And they always get their GOPers. Oh, sure, they’ll throw a little pork the GOP’s way…Congressman Dipsh** will get that bridge connecting his donor’s land to the Interstate. What does that matter to a Democrat? It not only doesn’t harm them to do it, it helps them – it is more government spending and thus more money flowing through their political base to wind up as donations for the Party. When does the GOP ever get anything for the nation when they don’t have 218 vote? Never.
Those thirteen would have been ok – and, in fact, would have been far more than thirteen – if the GOP – the Party and the people who make up the GOP – had got something. There wasn’t even an effort in that direction. Nancy didn’t have 218 votes. She needed GOP votes. Our best course of action was to let them twist in the wind…and then, when she was really desperate to get something passed, demand our pound of flesh. We could have got funding for the border wall. We could have got money for school choice. At bare minimum we should have got a prohibition against payouts for illegal immigrants who were separated at the border. We got nothing. Meanwhile, in that bill were all sorts of provisions which cement Progressive policy goals and provide a framework for even more Progressive advances in the future. Democrats didn’t get their whole wish-list, but they got some. And they’ll now wait for the next must-pass bill where just enough GOPers will be forthcoming to get it over the top.
We’re very likely to win a Congresional majority next year. What will happen then is that the Senate Democrats will use the filibuster to prevent any bill other than a Continuing Resolution from hitting Biden’s desk. In these CR’s, you can rely on it that Democrats will insert Progressive provisions. If we try to insert things like national CCW or a border wall, they’ll filibuster and wait for the MSM to scare just enough GOPers into going along with stripping out our provisions while keeping their provisions. We’ll be spinning our wheels as badly as we did after 2014.
And then we’ll likely win the White House in 2024. No assurances, but it is a 70/30 chance for us. And, then what? Same thing – nothing gets through the Senate except what the Democrats want. If it doesn’t do lots of things for them, they won’t let it through. They’ll go along with some silly corporate tax break that the GOP touts, but no reform of the FBI, no border security, no encouragement of American manufacturing, no strike back against CRT. All of those will be filibustered and so the GOP won’t even try…and there will always be just enough GOPers to help pass something the Democrats are ok with.
This is why we’re here in 2021 with a senile twit as President and debating pronouns.
It has to end. It must end. The survival of the Republic and our personal liberties requires that it end.
The Republican Party must become a Party of people who are absolutely certain that basic human decency requires the GOP to be in charge and that nothing a Democrat wants done is legitimate. In other words, we must act like we’re Democrats. The phrase “country over party” merely means “Democrats over Republicans.” We need to turn it about – “country over party” must now come to mean “Republicans over Democrats”. They are not legitimate. They have no moral right to govern. If they win, it is because of fraud overt or subtle. Only when we win is it legitimate. Only when we exercise power is it proper.
This is harsh: as harsh as the Democrats have been with us. It is a necessity. Being a free United States requires us to take this stance. No more must the Democrats be able to find GOPers who will help them advance the cause of the Democrat Party. In those rare instances where they wish to do something that actually has to be done, then the measure doing it must be larded up with things we want or it must not happen. Do not be afraid! The Ruling Class – with the MSM shouting – will tell us we are evil and they’ll produce polls showing that we’re doomed if we do it. Do it. We believe, right? We do believe that faith, family and property are the building blocks of a Republic, right? That limited government is the necessity, right? Well, then act like it. Fight for what we want. If we get what we want, everything will be better, right? Of course it will. So, why not fight?
Without GOP backstabbers, we’ll be able to do it. When we can rely on our people to be vigorous and pushing our policies and intransigent in opposing Democrat policies, we know that the sort of policies which will be enacted will favor our cause and, building one victory upon another over time, will restore American greatness. We’ll be free and safe and prosperous. And thus the voters will stick with us, because we’ll be the people who lead them out of the swamp and back into the sunlit uplands of the City Upon a Hill.
