The MSM is loving the idea of a disjointed GOP and promoting the idea every chance with useful tools like Meghan McCain, Lindsey Graham and Jeb Bush. Is the party fractured? Sure. But why?
Ms. McCain says the GOP needs to be saved from people trying to move the party to the extreme right. Personally, I think she should join her mentor Arlen Specter on the other side of the aisle.
The problem with so many republicans and rinos like Meghan, Jeb, and Lindsey is that the choice they offer is one between the democratic socialists (which used to be the democrat party) and democrats (under the label republicans). Both of these groups are big government, big spending, totalitarianists…which makes them far left. The only option they give us is the letter after the despot’s name. Is slavery any more palatable simply because your master calls himself a republican? Of course not.
Meghan McCain is right in that there are those of us who want to move the party far to the right. I am one of them. On the right is the exact opposite of what the moronic rinos want. There is a small central government tempered by constitutional checks and balances. In a word, there is Liberty.
Contrary to how the democratic socialists and democrats (rinos) want to spin it, the far right is not about jackboots and gestapo tactics. At its most extreme, the right is anarchy–the complete absense of government. The US Constitution puts us very close to that, enumerating only 17 areas where the Congress can intrude on the rights of the sovereign states and sovereign citizens. While these darlings of the leftwing media lie, saying we radicals are anti-homosexual, etc. nothing could be further from the truth.
Most far rightwingers I know (myself included) don’t care where a man puts his manhood. Nor do we care if a person is black, Hispanic, Asian, male or female. The federal government should not make any legislation that considers race, ethnicity, gender, or sexual identity. The federal government is not a body designed for social engineering. The Defense of Marriage Act, federal amendments defining marriage, &tc. are unconstitutional, just as hate crimes and affirmative action laws are.
The idea of a “big tent” party doesn’t mean shifting our values to become like Barack Obama, where we promise everything to every vocal group on the left. Republicanism, by nature, is a big tent because limiting the authority of the federal government to the enumerated powers means every person–straight, gay, black, white, male, female–will be left alone to choose the path that seems right to himself or herself.
