This great article in the Federalist shows when you seek to protect the rights of one portion of the population, you violate the rights of another.
Stupid singer Bruce Springsteen lashed out at the state of North Carolina who seems to be trying to appease everyone by punishing his fans and cancelling a scheduled show. Here is what I think of that.
Recently, I’ve been lamenting Mitt Romney’s loss and have been pretty frustrated with people who simply didn’t vote or voted for Gary Johnson, a great guy and obviously far more qualified than Barack Obama to be sure, but it begs the question… Are you still happy with how you voted?
But I began thinking about it in terms of John McCain, Jeff Flake and the democrat majority now on the hill representing Arizona made possible both by gerrymandering and “politics of party purity” in Arizona. And thinking how I will NEVER, EVER cast another vote for McCain for Flake, (or McFlake as I like to think of him)
And that makes me one big fat hypocrite.
I can’t turn back the clock and try and reason with other Libertarians on how Mitt would have run a pro free enterprise White House. But I can sure learn from them and support primary runs against entrenched incumbents that forget what party they are in and who they represent. But if they retain their place on the ballot, I would be voting against myself to vote for the democrat to run them off.
In order to stop this downward trajectory of our country as it is being dragged towards progressivism with the help of a complicit media, I am going to have to adopt some of that diversity and flexibility that I keep talking about.
It may be extremely painful for me to get behind an ill qualified GOP candidate to unseat Kristin Sinema this fall, but perhaps I will be better served if I act as an agent of change instead of staying home in utter defiance. Either way, pain will be involved, it’s just a matter of picking your poison.
Known for eating their young, the Republican party appears to have graduated to first playing with their food.
In the days since our crushing defeat and its’ bloodletting implications, the finger pointing clearly shows that in order to become the party of the big tent; that tent must be held up by the Tea Party with a healthy plank for the Libertarian wing as the foundation.
The problem lies not with the principles of Conservatism, but rather it’s sales. Moderation of the message has badly bungled by misinterpreting the reasons the middle has been moving to the right, which has been willingness to table their liberal social views in favor of embracing their inner fiscal conservative. Ever willing to exploit, a complicit press launches rape and abortion diversions to send them running back to lefty environs.
The Democrats have brainwashed women to dress as vaginas and bandy themselves about in protest and pageant. They brainwashed women into thinking they are in mortal danger of not only being raped and impregnated by same, but being forced to carry the child of said rapist by mere virtue of the fact somewhere within 20 miles a Republican holds office. They have further taught convinced women without Democrats, birth control as we know it shall cease to exist.
The old adage Democrats fall in love and Republicans fall in line seems to have reversed itself as Missouri Congressman Todd Akin can attest. Back in August, the US senate candidate showed he was absent the day they taught biology by making an absurd comment about a woman’s ability to “shut down” the process of getting pregnant when raped.
The comment immediately went viral. Republican candidates and party chair Reince Priebus placed Akins’ head upon the proverbial platter and walked away. With the lone voice of Dana Loesch and later Mike Huckabee in support, Akin chose instead to stay in the race, pointing to the factors that put him there. Always unabashedly pro life in all circumstances, the principled, fiscal conservative was thumping icky incumbent Claire McCaskill whom the show me state had been eager to show the door.
Had Akin been a Democrat, his comrades would have shrugged their shoulders, pointed out, his basic statement was one he always touted and who needed biology on Capital Hill anyway? The story would have fizzled by the time Monday commuters got home from work. Instead, by cannibalizing Akin we chased off the very voters we were pandering to and the issue remained a cause célèbre much to the shock and awe of Indiana’s Richard Mourdock.
Challenging RINO barnacle Dick Lugar for his Indiana senate seat, Mourdock is a honorable, committed public servant and pledged to limit himself to two terms. With the full backing of the Tea Party, Mourdock won the primary and led in the polls throughout the season, but he too stumbled with rape and pregnancy bungled comments and lost big to Democrat Joe Donnolly.
The problem is not with these two gentlemen’s positions on pregnancy resulting after a rape. The problem is with our transmission of the message after the fact. Knowing the Left has the mainstream media at the ready to deploy and spin our gaffes, we need to do a much better job of spinning back a message of, “rape is rare and so is a resulting pregnancy. Last time we checked abortion is still legal, no one candidate can take it away despite their personal views and oh by the way, ICYMI your paycheck IS going DOWN in January and your expenses UP if you do not vote Republican…etc”. Moreover, the candidates themselves need to be better prepared to parry these questions, answer them honestly, but stay off the landmines. Simple social media 101 training should do the trick.
The Tea Party doesn’t have to move to the middle in order to speak to the middle, but they do need to combat the Zombie mainstream media horde that are one step away from delivering the liberal message subliminally.
