Knife in the back

Open letter to the RNC

To The Republican National Committee,

This is the last straw. The conservatives of America have been shafted for the last time. There is a record, a public record of what we were promised by President George Walker Bush, if we would work hard to see him reelected. Go back into the archives and watch some of the videos made during George W’s last campaign for president, and you will see and hear thunderous applause and standing ovations anytime the President mentioned that he would nominate and fight for judges to the Supreme Court in the same mold as Justice Anthony Scilia, and Justice Thomas. So here it is 2005 and twice he ignores 7 or 8 such proven judges, to nominate two “maybe they are conservative, we’ll just have to wait and see to the highest court in our nation.

So much for that recorded promise. Just like fiscal responsibility, and a safe homeland. Nothing but promises.

As a Barry Goldwater Conservative, I worked in his campaign, I can tell you…..”I know conservatives, and you are not conservative!”

1. Do not expect the conservative base of your party to once again work their tails off to elect any Republican. We will be shopping for a political home, since there is no future for us in the G.O.P.

2. Or, it may be necessary to create a third party before the next election, made up of conservatives that have been screwed by the Republican Party and President George W. Bush in particular.

3. We know these actions will lead to a Democrat Party sweep next election time, but hear me out now. It is better to lose in a battle upfront, than to go down from a knife in the back.
I get a lot of mail from The Republican Committee to elect this or that, and I read the letters. Almost all of them use a tactic something like this....”you wouldn't want to wake up and find Hillary Clinton called President Hillary Clinton, would you? So send in some more of your hard earned money.”

4. The Republican majority is already toast in 2006, and by the time the second national federal election cycle comes around (2008) your party will be the third place party, and our new party will be going toe to toe with the Democrats. I am already practicing addressing you all as "your party", for it sure isn't mine.

5. Since neither the Republican or Democrat party will address the national security threat of our open borders, or the unnecessary and crazed spending going on, or the cronyism of the run amuck Federal Government......WE WILL WIN.

I started having second thoughts about President Bush when he signed the Political Finance Reform Bill that legislated the end to our freedom of speech. I became even more concerned to realize George W. has never vetoed any of the pork laden appropriations bills. Then I got more than a little hot under the collar when he called the concerned citizens who joined in the Minutemen Project, ‘vigilantes’. Quite a laundry list? If I could have a conversation with the President, it would go something like this….I've had it, George W. Bush, just like your father you are NO CONSERVATIVE, AND I AM BEGINNING TO DOUBT YOUR COMPASSION. How about having a little compassion on the taxpayer's of today and tomorrow? You have opened the taxpayers piggybank, letting largesse and power reign, over fiscal conservatism and accountability. There is no way the taxpayers of this country can bear the burden you have placed on our backs, and the backs of our children and grandchildren.
Why could you not fight for the little ones of America? You have continued to let foreigners walk unchecked into our country and take our jobs. My boss won't give me a raise because he knows there are undocumented foreigners who would do my job for less. If you truly are concerned about homeland security, put a lock on the door….DAH…..if my neighborhood saw a huge increase in home burglaries, I would put a BIGGER LOCK ON THE DOOR. Are you so dense that you can’t see this? You have the Secret Service to protect your job, life and property. We are out here alone with an incompetent federal government, and we are being swamped with foreigners.

But back to the last straw, the knife in the back.

Many clichés come to my mind in this latest of a long list of betrayal by George W. Bush.

I know it is only a Supreme Court nomination, but we worked hard for the day to come when good judges would be appointed to the Court.
Bush has been accused by many of being a liar.
I am joining in the chorus.

There is a record, a public record. Watch some of the videos made during George W’s last campaign for president, and you will see and hear thunderous applause anytime the President mentioned that if the voters would return him to the oval office, he would nominate judges to the Supreme Court in the same mold of Anthony Scilia, and Justice Thomas.

Bush lied, His parties base cried, and is now saying good-bye.

We worked our tails off to elect republican local, state and national candidates.

We put our shoulder to the wheel.

We kept our noses to the grindstone.

We worked our fingers to the bone.

What did we get for all our efforts?

I think you can get the image.

There is only one consolation in all of this for the Conservatives of America. The country is headed for a collapse, and the big spenders in Washington will be blamed and put out of office. That will be the Republicans. We’ll weather a Democrat administration, because the stuck on stupid Democrats will raise taxes and see us humiliated militarily.....that is the only thing they know how to do. Raise taxes and hate the military. After 4 years of President Hillary, the country will sweep the new conservative party to power.

We the voters and party loyal are shocked beyond reconciliation….don’t even try to clean this mess up……you won’t be able. Enjoy the next 13 months of being in power.

Oh by the way, any Democrats reading this rant, don’t celebrate too much, you are not the answer for America either, and you will be turned out after 6 years of power. That is if there is still a United States of America left in 2012.

If I had to select a Supreme Court Justice….I would select from a very short list, Myself, Newt Gingrich, Elizabeth Dole, Condoleezza Rice or Rush Limbaugh.

The following was added 10/06/05

Déjà vu, another President Bush drives me from the Republican Party and will cause me to vote for third party candidates in 2006 and 2008.
It is Ross Perot all over again. I fell for Ross’s spiel in 1992, and helped put the playboy from Arkansas in the White House. Do I feel bad about that? Yes, and no. I am sorry that we as a country had to be embarrassed by the peccadillos of a redneck Rhodes scholar, but with the given circumstances, I’d do it again.

Somehow being the Vice President for the greatest President of the 20th century, did not prepare George Herbert Bush, for the duties of the Presidency. Mr. Bush was an honest well-meaning President, but seemed to lose interest in fighting the liberals of the day. The President of the United States had shut his ears and mind to the citizens. No more new taxes…we all remember that statement that lead to a one term presidency. There were other things that played a role in his defeat in the ’92 election, but to most people it seemed that the people didn’t matter to the president. One thing you can never accuse Bill Clinton of, is not listening to the citizens. Bill had no core beliefs, so he depended solely on public opinion for any decisions as President. Poll-driven and able to change on a dime, that was Bill. In good times there is nothing dangerous about that, in bad times it can be fatal. I shudder to think of what would have happened if he had been president when our country was attacked.

Anyway, back to today. Another Bush is in the White House, and like his father, George W. is an honest, well meaning man. For the fight against terror, we are fortunate to have a man like G.W. as president. Wars cannot be won by taking a poll to see how the people want it fought.

War and the Supreme Court, let’s talk about it. If the country I love so dearly had continued down the road led by the whims of the aclu, and liberal judges, it was only a matter of time, that America would not be a country worthy of fighting for. If this country was to continue down the path of hating good, (Boy Scouts, God and Motherhood) and continues to champion bad, (Socialists, Degenerates and Nannyism) changing America into a liberal utopia (like New Orleans 2005) we would end up with a country not worth sacrificing for. Blood, Sweat or Tears, would be wasted on a country with liberals in control.

For forty years the conservative movement has chipped away at the insanity of the socialist mind in control of America. The Supreme Court is the last frontier of the anti-american left. We fought like crazy to get the White House back and have a decent God-fearing president pick judges that would right the ship of state.

Now Harriet Miers may well be a God-fearing woman who believes in the sanctity of life, but there are other equally as important issues to rule on in the coming years. There are many judges who have shown they will do what is right even when in a minority, so now that we have the majority, it would seem best to reward one of these warriors for good, with a Supreme Court Position.

I've had a few days to ponder this, and it doesn't add up.....Here are some thoughts I have added to this article....on 10/09/05.

What a mess……

The President nominates a candidate to the Supreme Court that is loved more by the Democrats on Capitol Hill than the Conservatives down in the trenches, and he and his cronies wonder why the Conservatives are rebelling?

Is this another blunder by the President? Yes and Yes, The only way to keep this unqualified candidate from being seated at the nation’s highest court would be for all of the Republicans to vote against her confirmation. All of the Democrats will end up voting for her, because they know she is not qualified, and will turn liberal when given such a lofty position. They know the power of praise upon a weak judge, they turned Judge Souter into a liberal voting judge, and it will be as easy to do in this case. With the praise coming from the Democratic side of the aisle, it is easy to see that this is the biggest blunder of the Bush years. I don’t expect Bush to rescind his pick, he is too vain, and doesn’t like conservatives to start with. He has ignored every conservative in Washington for five years, and now he is proving that he is no more than a pro-war liberal….yes anyone can plainly see this…George W. Bush is the real stealth candidate of all times….he fooled me and millions like me. A pro-war liberal, period.

Name me one time that the President stood up for Conservative Principals?.

You say tax cuts…I say this was a sinister plot to bankrupt the treasury and have the Republicans blamed, so that all of his liberal friends can get back in power.

To send such a weak candidate to the Supreme Court would be almost guaranteeing a liberal court for years to come. If you can’t see it, you have drunk too much Kool-Aid.

This woman will not fight for conservative values, just like the one who nominated her has never battled for any conservative value. Compassion? Mr. Bush, have compassion on the conservatives that put you in power.

I will leave the Republican Party if this unqualified stealth candidate winds up confirmed. In fact I am already gone. I haven’t forgotten the war, I just have a sick feeling that Bush is as incompetent or even stealth about the war.

Can you say, A wolf in sheep’s clothing….or a Liberal in Conservatives clothing?

Whoa Big Fella - A Bad republican is better than a Good Democrat! It will get better! Elections are coming up...want to feel better about the right, just look at the loony left!

I agree it appears the pendulum may be swinging... and I also agree that it's only temporary.

Rathter the looney left than the retarded right C R!!!--Lol

Blogger web_loafer said...

I have thought about this all day while driving my daily 400 miles.
This appointment is a slap in the face to hard working families in America who put George Bush in the White House twice. He and the Republican party are treating Christian Conservatives exactly like the Democrats treat the black voters that vote for them year in and year out. After 60 years of promises by the left to black America, they are no better off. We turn out and vote and look what happens. I have some theories about it all, but one thing I am sure of.....We have a better Supreme Court than one AlGore or JFKerry would have nominated. I am leaving the spend and excuse party, I'll be searching for a political home. Christian Conservatives are not needed except a voting time.
I am in a foul mood, I want to kick something. She very well may be a wonderful woman, smart and loyal. But who knows what kind of judge she will become. It is a lifetime appointment and we have no idea how she will react to the glitz and glory of the job.
It seems like Mr. Bush has all but thrown in the towel. He will not fight anymore. I can see it would be a strain to live with all the hatred directed to you day in day out.
I still am glad he is president, but I will never understand this.

Blogger Heathen Dan said...

Yeah, that's the ticket! Get rid of Bush before he destroys the good ol' GOP. He has become so partisan he has forgotten the core values of American conservatism.

Blogger Scooter said...

Finally your coming around to my way of thinking. You are always welcome in my Rebublicans against Bush party Loafer.

The sad thing is that she is a sure fire nomination because the GOP won't vote against a GOP nomination and the Dems won't vote against a woman for fear it will offend it's female base.

Well Scooter, it is more a case of tired of both prominent political parties. It is more leaving, and shutting the door rather than slamming it. I am thankful that Democrats were not in power in 2001, and some of the things the Republicans have accomplished have been good. This as I said was the last straw.
Don't expect to see me on a stage with Cindy Sheehan putting my country down. I still love my country, and know the war in Iraq is necessary.
If we quit fighting the terrorists and go into a defensive mode.
Well we are doomed. We can't seem to do anything right in our own country so what makes you think we could flush out the terrorists who would be flocking here, if they weren't trying to get to Iraq to kill our boys and girls.
Freedom has put us in a situation unlike any we've been through, read about or invisioned.
Our freedom allows those that hate us to mingle and plan and wait.
Even if we would have had every member of the United States Military near the Gulf Coast, they would have been misdirected, misused and the press would run the same sad race baiting articles, pictures and more.
I am so depressed to see the downfall of such a wonderful country. Please don't think for one moment I would rather have any of the prominent Democrats in power.

I wish the people were in power: they aren't and probably will go down with the ship of state.

Hiya web_loafer!
After you left a comment on my last entry, I thought I'd look over your blog. I was very impressed!!! Keep up the good work. Don't give up on pointing out that both parties have their heads up their butts right now and all us Americans need to quit taking sides and think about our Nation as a whole. Thanks for pointing out both parties have an agenda and it's going down hill fast. Yep! '06 & '08 elections are just around the corner. Maybe if more of us will keep encouraging ppl to expect more out of our Government as a whole, instead of looking for all the (R)s' or (D)s' in the ballot box without stopping to think about what they have to offer, we might help incite ppl to demand some changes around here! Again, great blog!

No so fast...

My friend anonymous,

The first time I voted, (it was in California in 1967, a Demorcrat Primary) I voted for Eldrige Cleaver.....
Check your history book, this was the primary that Robert Kennedy won, but was killed on the same evening, in Los Angeles.
My first vote was cast for an angry black man, (read, Soul on Ice) who wanted to tear down the whole nation and start over.
How does that vote relate to me today?
So to simply say H. Miers is great because she voted for RR.....
No, I don't buy that for a minute.
I am more concerned about how she would vote tomorrow.......
Someone who lives the White House life, has no clue about the average conservative truck driver from the mid-west, and how the Constitution of this great country affects them, OR ME>

Thank you James, I have been meaning to get back there and spend some time but have been so busy at the Bluff. They have probably kicked me off the council there for a no show....Think I'll go visit right now. Thanks my Canadian friend. When the world hurts, America runs to help...witness the earthquake in Pakistan....over half of the people in that region wish all Americans dead....they really do, and yet who gets there first to help the hurting. One of many reasons I love my country. Your country has done a lot for the whole of the world also. I do have a problem with all the draft dodgers that left America and are now messing your beautiful nation up....The real Canadians are a wonderful people in my book. Anyone who will not fight, Like the draft dodgers, could not help build a good nation, or one that would weather the storms of time.
