As a whole the GOP is in-cohesive, from the politician to its citizenry voters. This is a major problem for future political control for America. Republicans as a whole cannot 100% agree on 1 single issue. That was a reason for the split into the Independent Party, mostly made up of former Repubs. On the other hand, the Democrats are completely cohesive. They make a powerful voting bloc. There is the Democrat who is one just because his or her parents were, and are ignorant of their parties’ current leaning. The other faction are the liberal- progressive Democrat politicians, and voters who are bent on scrapping the Constitution, and promoting every form of evil. None the less they are cohesive.
We have the old school status quo Republican, a party of a bunch of compromisers, and push overs. A group who only sees a means to an end. Who have no fortitude to “stick with it”, and are only interested in appeasement. As in “work together and get a budget passed”. The Old School Repubs are conservative only when convenient, and when there’s no opposition to their views. Born of a lackadaisical and status quo spirit. There is a plethora of John McCain, and Newt Gingrich types. Those of the back door deals who do nothing to confirm our moral fabric, or strengthen our world standing. It has become the worthless party of, gee can’t we all just get along?
Then there are the new Republican Tea Party people. who have an unquenchable fire burning inside their hearts for love of country. built from politically observant individuals who sees the Titanic wreck before them of a once great country and super power. As politician or voter, we are firm in our convictions. Most importantly we are unbendable, and uncompromising. The Founding Fathers would be proud. Thank God, we new Republicans are a chip off the old block.
I think I can speak personally for the Tea Party Republican. I don’t want to compromise with Washington, quit it! Stiff arm them, dam it! As an example, stop compromising by raising the debt ceiling, go ahead shut the @#!$!! government down. Most importantly stop listening to the media that tells you what your constituency, and the American people, want — they lie.
Case in point, Marco Rubio has fallen victim to the lies. He is more like a ping pong ball these days. He doesn’t know if he’s coming or going. As in his being all over the board with the immigration issue. On the other hand we have, a rock star named Ted Cruz, who holds the line, and stands firm. Surely a lonely place in Washington. Cruz is a modern day Minute Man — what admirable qualities! We have to be firm in our resolves. Something that has vanished from the Old School Party of Repubs.
We are in a pivotal season for our country. We need to be pro-active. We must throw off the chains that so easily encompass us. We must be the standard bearers for this country called America. We are the ones who need to be loud and proud.
