Political Graveyard

I heard it again the other day…

Republicans are too far to the right – they need to move more toward the center.

This is a lie from the Liberal pit of hell. But I’m hearing it from Republican leaders.

Have they forgotten that this very idea, this “Republicans need to move toward the center” philosophy, did not originate with the Republicans? Statements like these originated with the Liberal left. The Congressmen, media pundits and other left-wing representatives started this train of thought back before George Bush Sr. was in office. And the stupid Republican hierarchy bought into it, and made it their own.

“Republican” used to be synonymous with “Conservative”, but that was a long time ago.

The Liberals won that battle. They indoctrinated the Republicans by their constant chant in the Republic ear: “Move toward the center…move toward the center…move toward the center.”

This is what gave us mediocre, non-productive Republican control of Congress during the Clinton and George W Bush years.
This is what caused the tables to turn and allow a Democratically controlled Congress.
This is what gave us John McCain.
This is what gave us Barack Hussein Obama in the White House.

This caused Conservatives to retreat into a political graveyard.

Conservatives started becoming frustrated during the Clinton years.
They started becoming discouraged during the Bush senior years.
They became apathetic during the W. Bush years.
They refused to vote in 2008.

This allowed less than 25% of the population of the United States to put BHO in office.

At that point, they nearly gave up completely.

Then the tea parties began...

... and hope began to surface – there ARE more of us out there than we thought…But many other conservatives are still waiting. They aren’t all dead yet – just lying in their political graveyard.

This will be the downfall of the Republican party unless it adopts a new mantra:

Move toward the right… Move toward the right… Move toward the right.”

Put a Reagan conservative on the ballot for 2012 and watch the graves open.

I agree. We hear this nonsense from our own now and there's no history to support it. Who were the Dems that were winning in the '06 midterms? They were Dems who spoke like conservatives or moderate Dems. The Repubs who lost their seats lost them due to the perception that the GOP had lost its way, but radical lefties weren't really taking over, but moderate lefties or lefties with some conservative views.

There is also this wrong-headed notion, and I believe Michael Medved thinks this is happening, that there is a conservative litmus test and if a politician isn't 100%, he should be rejected. I think more accurately is that we simply don't want to see RINOS, a term Medved detests, elected when there are more conservatives available.

In primaries, the party's support should always go with the strongest conservative available and efforts should be made to get the conservative message out and more importantly, understood by the voting population. Should a less conservative Repub win the primary, of course he should be supported over the Dem in 99.999% of the cases.

This, however, does not mean that there cannot be within the party those who are not 100% conservative. For example, I am happy that there exist the Log Cabin Republicans, a group of homo Republicans. Not because they are homos, but because they are fiscally conservative and likely strong on defense and other conservative issues, but happen to support homosexual issues. We shouldn't turn them out just because they're woefully wrong on one issue.

It's not who's riding in the bus, it's who's driving. The driver should be as conservative as possible. Conservatism has appeal for far more people than many of them even understand. It's a matter of presentation and thus far the presentation hasn't been that good. Nonetheless, Repubs need to stick to the conservative message because that's what will most benefit our nation.

Right on!! I sent a letter back from the National GOP requesting money. I told them NOOOO money until you come back to the conservative values that the GOP used to stand for. NO big tent-NO RINO'S-No stepping across the isle to further Liberal agenda's.
We want Conservative values that align with GOD, Country and Constitution. Bring it on!!! God bless, Herm
