That Nagging Feeling

October 21st, 2010 . by TexasFred
All of my regular readers know how much I admire the writing of my friend and fellow Southern Conservative, J.D. Longstreet. Once again he has made a post that is too good to not share! And it is 100% accurate. I hope the skeptics and GOP followers will pay attention and learn from this wise man.

That Nagging Feeling

A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet

It is a sad commentary on politics in America when an American cannot trust his or her own political party. Unfortunately, that is exactly where we are as the end of democrat dominance in Washington looms.

Anxious voters are asking themselves, and each other, if the GOP will have the intestinal fortitude to take the fight to the democrats — and ALL The Way To The Wall, if necessary. THAT is the question nagging conservative voters especially those who are involved with the Tea Party movement in America and those republican voters who support the Tea Party movement. It is that “nagging feelingâ€? I referred to in the title to this piece.

I must tell you, in my opinion, this is the GOP’s last shot at governing as a serious political party in America. Conservatives have found their power and their voice and over the past few months they have been eagerly learning how to use their voice and their power.

If the conservatives in America hand over power to the republicans in November and the republicans do not respond by standing up for conservative issues and pressing forward the conservative agenda, then MS Palin is correct, the Republican Party is through. Oh, there will be two political parties at the top in Washington, but it will be the Tea Party and the democrats with the GOP as a third party.

That nagging feeling I have includes the worry that the GOP still does not understand just how serious we conservatives really are. I don’t think they understand, I mean REALLY understand that conservatives in America are ready and willing to go to the mat to restore America to the constitutional, representative, republic the founders of this nation intended. We will defend her from the liberal-socialists who intend to transform America into a socialist state.

It has been said that freedom in America stands on five boxes: the soapbox, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box. It is a truism that has been forgotten over the years but it is a truism, nevertheless.

The sovereignty movement within the states has involved half, or more, of the states reasserting their sovereignty from the reins of the federal government. The people of those states are serious. They are not “playing around.� No matter which political party is in power, they had better understand that the people of America have had it with an all powerful federal government inserting itself into every aspect of a citizen’s life. We are, as they say: “ … Mad as hell, and we’re not going to take it anymore!�

The GOP will have one shot, one shot, mind you, to get it right. They had better not screw this up! They have to repeal ObamaCare, lower taxes, and get America back to work – and that is just for starters. They had better understand that Obama will fight them every step of the way and they had better be ready to fight, even if that eventually means shutting down the government. Yes, I DID say shutting down the government. A GOP Congress can use the power of the purse to bring pressure to bear where it is needed and they must not be afraid to do so.

Conservatives understand that we are in a fight for the very existence of America as a free country. We intend to live free.

I don’t think the GOP understands, yet, how fervently conservatives are invested in the idea of a free America. But they are about to.

WE have seen how quickly a country can go from the top to the bottom under the leadership of a liberal-socialist government.

The democrats seeded the cancer in America that is socialism. It continues to eat away at the very life of our country by killing liberty after liberty, freedom after freedom, and smothering the life out of American’s desire to achieve, overcome, and excel.

Since the democratic takeover of our Congress in 2006 we have become a mediocre country. The socialists in our government have denied, and continue to deny, American exceptionalism. They have been diligent in their efforts to turn America away from God and toward the state for everything. A free America cannot survive as a godless country.

Religious conservatives, especially the evangelical Christians, will happily tell you they will be going to the polls to vote their religious faith this November. They will be voting against the Obama Agenda and the Liberal-Socialist Agenda of the Democratic Party. They have come to understand that all the things the scriptures warn them about is embodied in the Obama Regime and the agenda of the Democratic Party. Many will tell you their religious faith compels they vote against the democrats and their “agenda from Hell.�

As I write these words, it is two weeks to the Mid-Term Election on November 2nd. I have heard the speeches. I have heard the promises. I have heard the pledges from the GOP. Yet, that nagging feeling persists.

The TexasFred Blog – Political Roundup for Sept. 1, 2010

The TexasFred Blog – Political Roundup for Sept. 1, 2010

ANCHORAGE — Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska conceded late Tuesday in her Republican primary race against Joe Miller, a lawyer from Fairbanks who was backed by Tea Party activists, Sarah Palin and other conservatives.

Mr. Miller shocked the political establishment here and in Washington last week when he emerged with a narrow lead, 1,668 votes, after the primary vote, on Aug. 24. His victory makes him the presumed favorite to win the Senate seat from this heavily Republican state.

Mr. Miller, who has proposed drastic cuts in federal spending, had trailed badly in local polls in the weeks before the election but benefited from a last-minute flood of advertisements, mailings and automated calls casting Ms. Murkowski as a Democrat in disguise. An abortion-related ballot measure also brought conservatives to the polls.

Murkowski Concedes Senate Race in Alaska

Congratulations to Joe Miller on his win over Lisa Murkowski. I hope you win the Alaska Senate seat and can keep Alaska on a Conservative track.

I also hope that you aren’t like some of the other so-called Conservatives touted by Sarah Palin, John McCain (R)INO being foremost in my mind. And lets not forget the fact that she supported Scott Brown (R)INO too, and is now feuding with him. SOURCE

WEST ALLIS, Wis. — Senator Russ Feingold says he should not be considered the front-runner in his bid for a fourth term. If that self-appraisal is true, Democrats face a greater risk of losing their majority in the Senate than they believed when summer began.

“Frankly, I love being the underdog,� Mr. Feingold said. “Let me have it.�

As the senator talks to voters across Wisconsin, that description is perhaps an exaggeration for an incumbent with a national reputation, but it has become a central part of his pitch. He is not eager to concede that control of the Senate could hinge on his seat — though it very well could — but he hopes the warning cry will prompt his loyal Democratic followers to rally to his side in a challenging election year.

In Wisconsin, an Incumbent Holds Tight

There’s only one way to say this, and quite likely I WILL anger someone in Wisconsin by saying it, BUT, if you folks re-elect Russ Feingold, SHAME ON YOU! You’re no better than Feingold’s ally in Arizona, John McCain (R)INO and the people that keep send him back year after year!

Remember this Wisconsin, you get the government you elect. You would think that Wisconsin would take a lesson from a certain bimbo named Peggy West and the disgusting debacle looking for a place to happen that SHE is! SOURCE

CHICAGO — Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty directed state agencies on Tuesday to decline all discretionary participation in federal healthcare reform, throwing up roadblocks to President Barack Obama’s goal of providing health insurance to all Americans.

“Obamacare is an intrusion by the federal government into personal health care matters and it’s an explosion of federal spending that does nothing to make healthcare more affordable,” the Republican governor said in a statement.

Since Obama signed the landmark reforms into law in March nearly half of the states have mounted a fight against it.

Pawlenty directs state to decline health reform

The more I hear about Tim Pawlenty, the more I am liking this guy. Pawlenty may not be the one the RNC chooses in 2012, they do seem to have a way of picking the most unelectable ticket of late, but I am seriously starting to think that Pawlenty really has a lot going on for him and may well be a great choice for America!

Carl P. Paladino, nearly an hour and a half late, rushed into a chandeliered room in the Bronx the other day to tell Hispanic religious leaders why they should elect him governor. The scrambled eggs had turned cold, and so had the room.

“Hipócrita,� one minister whispered. Another passed around newspaper articles with the words “bigot� and “anti-immigrant� underlined.
