We’re hearing about third parties again. Mark Levin has said that “he’s one inch away from leaving” the Republican Party. Matt Barber has written “I Am No Longer a Republican.” In the second paragraph of his article, he writes:
“Even before the gavel has sounded on the Republican-led 114th Congress, these treacherous cowards shamelessly, eagerly, it seems, squandered perhaps the one opportunity they had to stop, in his tracks, America’s first cultural Marxist, anti-American, palpably evil president.”
There is a key point in what Matt Barber writes. The effects of the 2014 election are not yet in play. Yes, I realize the GOP Establishment despises the Tea Party and is doing everything to neutralize its impact. Before any decisions are made about abandoning the GOP, however, let’s at least wait until we learn what this new crop is going to do.
We need to recall that not a single Republican voted for Obamacare. Half of the Senators who voted for Obamacare will not be a part of the new Senate. This is some type of progress. is the glass half full or half empty?
Did any of us actually think that Boehner and McConnell were going to have a Damascus Road political experience when they saw the 2014 election results? I didn’t.
Will this new crop of congressmen create a conservative minority and caucus with those in the House and Senate who want to fight the Republican Establishment? If this happens, the GOP Establishment will be hamstrung. Hopefully the current crop of conservatives in Congress are contacting the upcoming arrivals and putting together an adversary party within the GOP.
Being subversive from the inside is the best approach.
At this point in time, we are stuck with a two-party system. Deal with it. If radical leftists were able to take over the Democrat Party and a mini-Republican Revolution was started by Reagan in 1980 and revived congressionally in 1994 and 1996, I can’t understand why we would not put our efforts into taking over the Republican Party. If we can’t take over an existing party, what makes us think we’re going to be able to start a new party?
The old adage that you can’t change just one thing applies here…
