Former Congressman: I’m Quitting GOP
In a panel discussion at the University of Colorado after the recent Republican debate, I was asked by a student why she should be a Republican. The question forced me to ask myself the same thing. SOURCE
I’m sure that there will be some that disagree with me on this but I always was a fan of Tom Tancredo and I believed him to be a man of principles and a all-around good guy.
If you have been a long-time reader of this blog you know that for a very long time I too have made many references to the GOP having become nothing more than Dem-Lite, and that I have long said that in all truth, the GOP is NOT all that Lite any longer.
I am old enough to well remember when being a Democrat was a supposed to be a GOOD thing and how the GOP was supposed to be a Party of rich, old White men and racists.
The Democrats have ALWAYS been a RACIST Party, they have, regardless of the words they spoke in public, long engaged in two-faced hypocrisy as they sought to keep the racism that they embraced alive and well.
One of my long-time blogging friends, Maggie at Maggie’s Notebook made this post a while back and hit it right on the head: History of Democrat Racism.
I remember a time when most Southerners were Democrats and when they were staunch supporters of the Party, right up until the death of President John F. Kennedy, and I remember seeing and feeling a *shudder* run through the people as the Democratic Party began to make an almost immediate shift to the left.
That shift continued through every Democratic administration and was all but complete by the time Bill Clinton was done, and it was along about this time that I began to see and feel that same *shudder* run through the people as the GOP began their not so gradual shift to the left as well.
The GOP was on a serious downward spiral but the USA was not rolling in its death throes, at least not the day George W. Bush left office and Barack Hussein Obama stepped in.
Once that occurred, once Obama was POTUS, the GOP ran as hard and fast as they possibly could as they tried to appease the new *masters* of the government as they, the GOP, moved even further to the left and Liberalism as the once respectable Democrats of old sought to embrace Socialism, Communism and Islam under the leadership of Obama.
The LARGE players of the GOP have turned out to be as useless as tits on a pump handle as they sat idly by and ALLOWED this nation to be taken by the above mentioned as they embraced Socialism, Communism and Islam under the leadership of Obama.
Sure, there are a few good Senators and Congressmen that still wear the GOP tag; Ted Cruz and Louie Gohmert immediately come to mind for me, but they only wear that TAG because if they didn’t they wouldn’t be able to get elected as Conservatives and Independents. Think about Bernie Sanders running on the Dem ticket, Sanders isn’t a Dem, he’s a SOCIALIST but no *thinking* American is going to pull that lever.
Today the GOP is as guilty, and in all honesty, has been, for a very long time, as guilty 0f destroying our once great nation as are those Democrats that embraced Liberalism, as well as Socialism and Islam. The GOP is guilty of not having the GUTS to stand up and STOP the BS from the left, and have been that way for a very long time.
Now the *power players* of the GOP sound just like the Democrats when they talk about Conservatives and how we, Conservatives, are trying to steer this nation back on the track of Constitutional government as it was written and NOT as it has been bastardized by the likes of Obama and Company.
Once upon a time I thought that my Congressman, Pete Sessions, was going to be one of *The Good Guys*, I actually thought he was a Conservative until I heard him blast off on Conservatives like Ted Cruz and The TEA Party in a manner that would have made John McCain happy.
Once I saw Sessions engage the suction pump that he had attached to John Boehner I knew that I had been fooled and that my very own Congressman was nothing more than a Dem-Lite RINO. Republican In Name Only.
Tom Tancredo is RIGHT my friends, the GOP has run away from you and me, the Conservative Constitutionalist, just like the Democratic Party ran away from any modicum of dignity and integrity back in the 1960’s.
