Frustration! Republicans — Too Often the ‘Me Too!’ Party

Perhaps the most frustrating thing for Conservatives to witness today is the Republicans in Washington and their almost incessant need to go along with the policies of liberal Democrats.

To the casual observer, it would seem that the members of the GOP are rarely seen opposing the ideas of the opposing party.

In many cases, it would appear that instead of assuming their role as the “loyal opposition,” they are more interested in presenting a somewhat less-offensive version of whatever insane and generally-unconstitutional legislation that the Democrats are seeking to pass.

For example: When Democrats were seeking to pass Obamacare, many of those in the Republican Party immediately began to embrace many of the principles in the bill.

Moreover, it’s also quite likely that if Mitt Romney had been elected President, then many of these same Republicans would have urged him NOT to repeal Obamacare, but rather, to simply trim the program a little around the edges.

While Democrats are constantly seeking to ban ALL private gun ownership in America, it’s only inevitable that you would have some GOP turncoat step forward with his so-called “common sense” proposal for Universal Background Checks.

Conservatives and true Republicans embrace the Second Amendment.

Democrats seek to ban all private gun ownership.

But increasingly, Conservatives are forced to watch a number of Republican collaborators step forward and say, “Me too! Me Too!”

Republicans once proudly stood for the principles of liberty, lower taxes, and less government.

Not anymore.

But many of those in the GOP have joined Democrats in their efforts to control liberty, confiscate income, and cultivate government.

The Republicans reply, “Me too, America, but not as much as those guys.”

Unfortunately, Republicans in Washington have recently been the beneficiaries of large voter turn-outs from Conservatives and Tea Party patriots, voters which changed the balance of power, thereby giving the GOP a majority in the House of Representatives.

However, the Republicans, once they were now in the majority, suddenly forgot about the Conservative principles they embraced and the campaign promises they made.
