I knew the time was coming this year when the Republican Party would demand that the Tea Partiers join up or shut up, but I didn't expect it so soon or from some of the people I heard it from this week. I know CPAC is going on and that maybe the reason that the Right Wing of the Republicans is applying so much pressure for the Tea Partiers to roll over and join the Republicans under their leadership. I say fight and tell them exactly why you will continue to stand up to the machine. As long as the Republicans refuse to apologize for their spendthrift was and change who they anoint then we should continue to make them work for our votes.
The fact that Rubio is now the likely winner in FL is a testament to the power of the people over the Party. It was the people that pushed Scott Brown to victory not the Party. Barbarian and I have been saying this for a very long time, we must hold on to our vote and force better choices. We can not just blindly follow the Party line because if we don't force them to give us better choices then we just get more D-Lite vice frugal Constitutionalists. I am a realist and do realize that at some point you have to make a decision and back a candidate, but know is not the time to roll over as we head into primary season. Now is the time to really make your voice heard and run the big spenders out of office from both parties.
I know a lot of you think there is no such thing as a fiscally conservative Democrat and that is because their party knows that they win elections by promising government payoffs to buy their votes, but the real truth is that if they lose election after election then they will be forced to change course. MA serves as a great example of how this can work because do you think the next D candidate from MA is going to be a tax and spend liberal or a more moderate individual in the mold of an old time Democrat not the liberal wings nuts we see today.
We must force both parties back to sanity and put an end to the corruption. We must clean out the career criminals and start a new with people that truly believe that the government is not the solution to every problem and spending (wasting) tax payers hard earned money is a crime. The backroom payoffs is sickening and to the point that they don't even try to hide the fact that they are selling their vote. I say we throw the bums and criminals out and start fresh with people that care about and respect the fact that the money they are spending is not free and currently is coming from a grand children. Generational theft must stop and we must ensure that, regardless of a candidates party, they understand this fact.
There is so much to be pissed about and so many lies and BS coming out of Washington, so we must stand strong and hold our ground. Force the parties to seek us out and earn our votes. I love this country and now is the time to force sanity back into Washington and the only way we do that is to force better choices and if we can afford it put our money where our mouth is and walk the walk. God Bless America and the Republic for which she stands.
