The Three Stooges meet Ronald Reagan
Here we go again. As we approach another election cycle, we are starting to hear the same old tired rhetoric from RINOs preaching to the Republican Party and Conservative Voting base how we must be like Democrats in order to win. I wrote about this very topic on November 6th, 2006 and then again on November 05, 2008. The same Three Stooges that led the Republican party to defeat in 2006 & 2008 are trying to guarantee election losses in 2009 and 2010 as well.
Meet the stooges:
Fresh off his Global Warming sofa photo-op with Nancy Pelosi, Newt Gingrich has recently endorsed Dede Scozzafava in NY-23 House race over Reagan conservative Doug Hoffman. Dede Scozzafava is an ACORN-friendly, union-pandering, gay marriage supporting, tax-and-spend radical Republican. Doug Hoffman is fiscal conservative, small government, pro-national security Reagan conservative. The Daily KOS has joined Newt in endorsing the ultra liberal RINO Scozzafava. Meanwhile, Sarah Palin, Fred & Jeri Thompson, Michelle Malkin and many other headline conservatives are supporting Hoffman. Tea Party Patriots have taken notice and are starting to send Newt a loud message. Help send a message also and donate to conservative Doug Hoffman.
We all recall how Lindsey scolded the Republican party and American conservatives over immigration reform. He threw a hissy fit on the Senate Floor and then at a speech to La Raza said we are a bunch of bigots for not wanting illegal immigrants on our soil and we should shut up. Now, Lindsey Grahamnesty is claiming we need to reach out to liberals and moderates or we will be a party of Angry white guys.
Until the Republican Party decides to weed out this idiotic, big tent, run to left, moderation ideology, they will continue to see embarrassing election losses as they did in 2006 & 2008. The Tea Party movement is a Reaganesque conservative grassroots movement that is fed up with big government, big taxing, big spending politicians whether they are Democrat or Republican. People like John McCain, Lindsey Graham and now Newt Gingrich are exactly the reason the GOP has become an impotent party. How many more election losses will it take until these liberal azz kisser realize their strategy is flawed?
Ronald Reagan said it best on March 1, 1975:
"Since our last meeting we have been through a disastrous election. It is easy for us to be discouraged, as pundits hail that election as a repudiation of our philosophy and even as a mandate of some kind or other. But the significance of the election was not registered by those who voted, but by those who stayed home. If there was anything like a mandate it will be found among almost two-thirds of the citizens who refused to participate......
Let our banner proclaim our belief in a free market as the greatest provider for the people. Let us also call for an end to the nit-picking, the harassment and over-regulation of business and industry which restricts expansion and our ability to compete in world markets. Let us explore ways to ward off socialism, not by increasing government’s coercive power, but by increasing participation by the people in the ownership of our industrial machine. Our banner must recognize the responsibility of government to protect the law-abiding, holding those who commit misdeeds personally accountable. And we must make it plain to international adventurers that our love of peace stops short of “peace at any price.” We will maintain whatever level of strength is necessary to preserve our free way of life. A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers. I do not believe I have proposed anything that is contrary to what has been considered Republican principle. It is at the same time the very basis of conservatism. It is time to reassert that principle and raise it to full view. And if there are those who cannot subscribe to these principles, then let them go their way."
