There’s a great debate raging over so-called Republican spoilers. These are candidates who challenge Establishment Republicans. As we saw in Mississippi, the Establishment got behind a long-time Establishment Republican and sabotaged a Tea Party candidate who wanted to make fundamental changes in Washington.
This type of double-dealing is happening in many GOP races. Tea Party advocates and libertarians are fed up with Establishment promises that don’t bring about any results.
John Boehner won his primary race. He feels safe. So what does he do? He’s working with Nancy Pelosi who told Bill Maher the following:
“It would be very important for the Democrats to retain control of the Senate. Civilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy if Republicans win the Senate.”
Will the GOP ever learn? Dr. Gary North says “no.” The following article is controversial. You may not agree with it, but it will get you to think. — Gary DeMar
The lady never learns. “I am a Republican stalwart!,” Ann Coulter says.
The biggest current danger for Republicans is that idiots will vote for Libertarian candidates in do-or-die Senate elections, including Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina and Colorado. (That’s in addition to the “Independent” in Kansas who’s a Democrat.) Democratic candidates don’t have to put up with this crap — they’re even trying to dump the official Democrat in Kansas to give the stealth Democrat a better shot.
When we’re all dying from lack of health care across the United States of Mexico, we’ll be deeply impressed with your integrity, libertarians.
Which brings me to my final assignment this week: If you are considering voting for the Libertarian candidate in any Senate election, please send me your name and address so I can track you down and drown you.
What has the Republican Party done for liberty lately?
In foreign policy? (How about war?)
In federal spending? (Remember Bush II’s drug prescription law?)
Deficits? (Remember Reagan? Remember Bush II?)
Supreme Court? (Chief Justice “ObamaCare” Roberts?)
But we are supposed to vote for them, no matter what. We must sanction them. We must give them legitimacy.
And when they sell us out, we are supposed to stay quiet and re-elect them.
Fifty years ago, I learned this rule: “If a politician thinks you are in his hip pocket, you will get sat on.” This rule is never violated.
How does a small voting bloc keep from getting sat on? By voting for a third party in tight races. By inflicting pain on the sellouts.
Electoral politics is all about inflicting pain.
The voters in New Hampshire and Florida who voted for Ralph Nader as a Green Party candidate instead of voting for Al Gore defeated Gore. The Democrats had pretended the greens were in their hip pocket. Dumb move. Nader sent them a message. They learned it well. When was the last time since November 2000 that a Democrat opposed the greens’ agenda?
