It’s bad enough that conservatives have to fight Democrats. The GOP has its own Democrat-like base and is using its power, money, and influence to keep conservatives out of the party. It’s about power and money. They know that confiscatory tax policy is the gravy train to riches. And there are billions to be made in politics, and those in the GOP want their “fair share.”
These GOPers have given up principles (if they ever had any) for power, prestige, and profit.
The latest example is in Alabama where Judge Roy Moore is running for Senate against former State Attorney General Luther Strange who was appointed immediately to the seat by then-Gov. Robert Bentley (who had to resign because of a sex scandal) to replace former Sen. Jeff Sessions who now serves as US Attorney General.
The GOP establishment wants a Senator they can control. They know they will not be able to control Judge Moore so they are doing everything they can to stop him from winning. That includes intimidating and blackballing anyone who decides to work for the campaign.
And Moore already has an issue on which to campaign: the Washington elite’s declared support for Strange and their warning to any who would oppose him. There are those in the GOP who are copying tactics from the Democrats to keep constitutional competitors out of the Party.
The following is from WND:
The Washington elite have given Strange the designation of “incumbent” although he’s been in Washington only a few months and warning contractors, advisers and the like not to work with anyone opposing Strange.
Moore campaign spokesman Dean Young said that effort by Beltway insiders to influence Alabama voters was discovered when one of Moore’s contractors, running the campaign website, abruptly quit.
The Andalusia Star News reported the National Republican Senatorial Committee “is warning consulting firms that they would face retribution if they work against Strange in the August primary.”
