"GOP committing suicide"

Postby UrGod » Sun Aug 27, 2017 7:22 pm

"**Exclusive – Brent Bozell: The Slow Death of the Republican Party**

The Grand Old Party is about to commit suicide.

All this talk about Trump this, and Trump that, masks a far bigger political controversy. The Republican Party leadership in Washington, D.C., has fundamentally betrayed its constituents and they are about to learn that they’ve been double-crossed — for years.



Every Republican candidate’s stock speech sounds the same, the thunderous roar about a government out of control, federal spending out of control (insert charts and graphs and why, if you stack hundred dollar bills, they will reach the edge of the universe), federal taxes out of control (insert comparisons to socialist countries), the federal bureaucracy out of control (insert metaphors about chains, yokes, and the like), the family shattered with federal funding of abortion a crime against humanity (watch for it — there! The heart-wrenching sob), and our military is emasculated.

Two more items were added to the menu, courtesy of Obama. Obamacare Will Be Repealed! and Illegal Immigration Will Not Stand!

In 2009, the Democrats controlled everything, partly due to the Republicans’ cowardice on Capitol Hill, and in part because of some of the most inept candidates and campaigns America has seen in years. The Obama folks could have played it safe but went for socialist gold, using the power of the legislative and the executive branches (and later the judiciary, thank you Justice Roberts) to advance their agenda.

That included federal spending on a level unmatched in human history resulting ultimately in a $19 trillion in debt we simply cannot pay, and with so many tens of trillions of dollars in unfunded liabilities that “infinity” is not far behind. One seventh of the economy was confiscated by the federal government with the passage of Obamacare. Our national borders were declared open and discussions over our national sovereignty closed. And to top it off, the Democrats all but declared themselves above the law.

The GOP harrumphed that this would not stand, by God! If only… if only America would vote them into the majority.

In 2009, the Tea Party was born. The Grand Old Party was rejuvenated. Happy days were here again.

Just one year later, the Republicans captured the House, and with that, the power of the purse. They now had the authority to stop the insane spending on so many obnoxious and wholly unnecessary ventures. They could end Obamacare simply by not funding it.

Instead, under the “leadership” of John Boehner, it did absolutely nothing. Why, if only we had the Senate! Then we could take on the President!

So in 2014, after spending hundreds of millions of campaign dollars running hundreds of thousands of television and radio ads pledging to end illegal immigration while repealing Obamacare “root and branch” (author: Mitch McConnell), they were given control of the Senate.

And within a month McConnell re-authorized both, along with every single other thing Harry Reid and Obama wanted for yet another year.

But that’s because we can’t do what we promised until we have the Presidency! The excuse was as predictable as summer heat in the Sahara.

In 2016, they were given that too.

They were given everything.

In January of this year, they formally controlled both houses of Congress and the executive branch. Every single thing they’d ever promised was now possible.

They now had the power to enact every single spending cut they’d ever solemnly pledged. All those wasteful programs designed to fill the liberal sandbox — PBS, NPR, Planned Parenthood, NEH and the rest of the alphabet soup; all the hundreds of billions of dollars in corporate welfare to multi-billion-dollar corporations; all of the hundreds of billions of dollars directed toward leftist social engineering — poof! All of it could come to an end with a stroke of a pen.

They now had the power to restore fiscal tax sanity too. Remember the flat tax? The fair tax? Slashing the highest corporate taxes in the world? Giving you a tax break? All of it could be done with a snap of the fingers.

Repeal Obamacare? Check. End illegal immigration? Check. Build the wall? Check.

Crush the Deep State? Done, by God, done!

There was not a damn thing the Democrats could do to stop them from draining the swamp.

Except the Republican leadership didn’t mean it. With the exception of the Freedom Caucus in the House, and literally a handful in the Senate, the rank-and-file didn’t either. Not one word of it.

The opportunity arose for the vote to repeal Obamacare, and after huffing and puffing, and huffing and puffing some more, the dust settled and socialized health care remains the law of the land, perhaps permanently.

The opportunity arose for tax reform, to enact the cuts America desperately needs. It was never a matter of if, it was a matter of how much. It is now mid-August and nothing, absolutely nothing has been accomplished — even attempted!

And now we face the final test: the debt ceiling. Will we or won’t we stop the spending madness? Will the Republicans enact the cuts they’ve promised, or will they now be the ones to kick the can, piling evermore trillions of dollars of debt on their own grandchildren?

By every indication that’s precisely what they plan to do. The signal has come from President Trump, from Speaker Ryan, and from Majority Leader McConnell. The debt ceiling will be raised and no fiscal sanity will be restored.

There is no difference between Republicans and Democrats. Put them together. They are the swamp.

Just as Republicans have the power to enact the agenda they’ve pledged in toto, so too do they now own the federal government, in toto. It’s no longer Obamacare. It’s GOPcare. It’s no longer crazy liberal Democratic spending. It’s crazy liberal Republican spending. It’s no longer socialist Democratic Party taxation, it’s socialist Republican Party taxation. All the legislation authorizing all these programs, all the graft, all the waste, all the obscenity, all the immorality, and where Planned Parenthood is concerned, all the killing — all of it is now formally authored by the Republican Party.

Come the Congressional elections next year, and the presidential election in 2020, the Grand Old Party will once again bellow its hallowed promises. But this time it won’t work. This time there will be no straw men to blame. This time their voters will know those hallowed promises are not even hollow promises. They are lies.

These voters are tasting betrayal. They will not vote to swallow more vomit.

We are watching the GOP systematically committing suicide.

The republican party was taken over in the 70's by neoconservatives, it is now a new world order co-opt.

Yes. There are small exceptions such as the Freedom Caucus but indeed they are very small.

I think the GOP is done for two reasons:
1) Refusing to bend on minimum wage
2) Protecting the wealth of the 1% from taxation when they themselves are nowhere close to being a 1%er and would rather see single mothers and their kids struggle in order for Jamie Dimon to add a few more yachts to his collection.

Pure evil imo and good riddance. The bad part is the lib nutcases will be taking over. They are irritating, but at least I don't viscerally hate them.

Bernie would have beat Trump and if the Dems have sense enough NOT to put Chelsea on the ticket, they're sure to win in a landslide. Could be another FDR-type after Hoover who enacts more social reforms.

Has anyone noticed the republican presidents have gotten progressively dumber since Reagan? Bush and then I thought no one could be dumber than ole monkey-ears GW Bush. The only way to top Trump is put a real Chiquita banana in office. But if they run Chelsea, I'd vote for the banana. :banana-linedance:

Bernie was Vladimir Lenin 2.0 and Hillary Clinton is like a gentile controlled Emma Goldstein.

At any rate neither party is worth a damn and I stand by my belief that there is no reforming the United States government or redeeming it. The only solution is its destruction preferably externally but more than likely internally from the inside out.

Ronald Reagan was a piece of shit that gave much power and concessions to Wallstreet.

Honestly I can't say what the last reasonable president was if we ever even had one to begin with. William McKinley perhaps....

Don't insult Emma like that lol

I think most people would have been better off under Bernie... if he had done what he said he would have done (which never happens).

Yep.

Ronald Reagan was a piece of shit that gave much power and concessions to Wallstreet.

Yep. And that war on drugs crap.

Honestly I can't say what the last reasonable president was if we ever even had one to begin with. William McKinley perhaps....

What was wrong with FDR? 4 terms!

There was plenty of things horrible with Roosevelt.

Word on the street is that Bernie got payed off by Hillary to resign his presidential platform where he got a nice mansion out of the deal but of course something happened where his wife went under investigation by the F.B.I. for some kind of investment fraud. I am not joking either, this has been in the news the last two months.

That was strange that he suddenly started supporting hildabeast.

What was wrong with FDR? Times were good for a long time due to the regulations he put into place. A man could easily support a big family with the wife staying home. That's the great america that Trump is referring to. FDR was the only president who had the best interests of the people in mind.
