REPUBLICAN STRATEGY: Capitulate

Print Friendly and PDF

Take it on the chin, and then capitulate!

 

capitulateEver since the proposition has been made to de-fund the Obamacare portions of the continuing budget resolution, every politician, news reporter, political pundit, etc., etc., that is opposed to the very thought of elected officials voting in accordance with the wishes of the majority of Americans proclaims “you will be shutting down the federal government” and “why do you want to shut down the government” and “there are better ways to oppose Obamacare” and “get used to it, it is the law”. The response to such proclamations is “we must show our support of opposition to Obamacare” and then on and on about all the known and obvious problems with this unconstitutional monstrosity of a law.

Not once have I heard the response to these proclamations: “we are not in favor of nor are we attempting to cause such a shut down. Only Obama can do that!” Rather, they try to argue their position on common sense grounds that are never recognized by the interviewer. Why not simply state the facts: “we desperately want to fund all other aspects of the government’s operations but the voting public has demanded that Obamacare be stopped and this little bit is all we have the power to do at this time. If Obama chooses to take on the responsibility of shutting down the federal government we cannot stop him and he will be solely responsible for the consequences”.

Why oh why do these Republicans choose to take it on the chin time after time, news story after news story without so much as a flinch. Truth be known, their leadership is void of political know how and gumption and are so afraid of the media that it eventually leads to “OK, we will compromise”, i.e. CAPITULATE!!!

For God’s sake fellow conservatives, let us phone, write, email or whatever is required to restore some common, everyday sense into the way our “Washingtonized” politicians think!!

    You know there is one thing that I give credit to ALL politicians, whether they are leftist, commies, RINOs, Progressives, Marxist, GOPs, etc.. They ALL excel in taking bull, sprinkling it with sugar and calling it candy and than have the nerve to tell us to eat it! Just because 55% (give or take) of this country is stupid as a sac of rocks, doesn’t mean that the rest of use are going to eat and drink from the commie toilet. Voters, for God’s sake, do your homework at midterm before you go to the polls and in 2016.

    Get the book by Mark R. Levin, “The Liberty Amendments”, Restoring The American Republic. Read it, there is still time before the midterms. There is a little know “emergency cord” built into the Constitution by the Founders. It’s in Article V, it allows for the States rather than just the Congress to propose Constitutional Amendments. It’s entirely legitimate. It was extolled by James Madison in the Federalist Papers # 43. Did you know that the Founding Fathers for saw the future abuse of the government and had written in place 12 year term limits, not only for the Senate and Congress, BUT, also for the Supreme Court Judges. Get the book, it’s worth reading. All the politicians know about this rule and at the end of 12 years; they are NOT TO RUN AGAIN, but they do because they are depending on our stupidity and the mentality of “what are you going to give me, the dumb moochers.”

    “we desperately want to fund all other aspects of the government’s

    and this little bit is all we have the power to do at this time. If
    Obama chooses to take on the responsibility of shutting down the federal
    government we cannot stop him and he will be solely responsible for the
    consequences”

    Exactly!! I’ve been scratching my head for weeks wondering why no one has brought up that rather obvious fact/argument. It is not those who vote not to fund Obamacare that will shut down the government. It will be Obama, once again, acting like a two year old who didn’t get his way that will result in the shutdown.
