THE MANY VOICES OF THE GOP


Yea so, the party is OLD and not so GRAND at the moment. It's not the party of "change" its the party of "stay the same" and that is what us conservatives like, it's called tradition. Holding on to traditional American values does not mean that we should all go nab ourselves a slave, force public worship services and hold a meeting at the OK coral for a gun-fight to get our points across. Believing in traditional American values is an effort to hold on to what made America different than the place we left...England. We reject European thought and philosophy because we are Americans. We are Ben Franklin returning to England with his coon skin hat. We are a separate entity NOT beholden to one man, only the rule of law. We are a republic. Our judge is the Constitution, and though we may argue Constitutional meaning and original intent, we are observers of old school values that were supported by it even in its infancy. So the GOP is the party of American tradition, not the party of "change" America. This is not to say America doesn't need change, just not the change offered to us by European wannabees.
In the GOP you have the Megan McCain's and Colin Powell's of the party that want the party to go further to the center, or as many will say further to the left. I say shutty the helly uppy Megan and Colin. Hell to the NO! The party is a right-winged party. We have a left-winged party already, and unless we are willing to call the democratic party the liberal party and make the GOP into the new democratic party, the idea sucks. No one in the republican party wants to be a democrat unless you started smoking the Obama crack pipe last election. No offense Colin Crack DADDY, don't laugh, it happened. Plenty of republicans, Colin Powell, went with the logic of "I hate George Bush because he spent so much money so I am gonna vote for a guy who is gonna spend more money than all Presidents put together in the history of America"...seriously where is the firing squad for these worthless as hell republicans? You are retarded, Colin Powell. Never will you hear me say, yea the republicans are worthless so I am going to vote for an even more worthless democrat...MEMO: TO: Obama supporting republicans: Even your most worthless conservative republican is better than your best democrat. OK? Got it? Don't make me hit you in the street. So NO, the republican party should not become the new democratic party. Bad idea. Megan and Colin, go hump a libtard somewhere and get it over with. But please stay, we tough love you.
Then you have the "We need to go further right" the "back to the basics" crowd. Ok, you guys are fine, but your sphincters are wound so tight that its hard for us moderates to creep in and show you some love. Just because I don't want a mass deportation of illegals does not mean I am a liberal sell-out RINO with secret Obama sex dreams. I don't sing the Rush and Hannity ballad of kissing the ass of "true" and "pure" conservatives. Fine, buy into a non-inclusive attitude and lose more elections. It must have been frustrating watching the moderate George Bush smash your republican ideals, but let's not act like Ronald Reagan was the purist conservative of them all. Bush did do some spending, but memo: so did Ronnie. Yea, George wanted a guest worker program for illegals, but guess what, RONNIE GAVE THEM STRAIGHT UP AMNESTY. So stop the Reagan worship just because he was the last most popular GOP President in the UNIVERSE. You are hypocrites for not criticizing him for the same shit you dogged W over. Just sayin'.
And then you have the religious right. The republican party is a safe haven for the religiously inclined because of its similar social ideological beliefs. This wing of the party is often the most ridiculed and demonized section of the party. The term "the religious right" is often touted as the psychopathic section of America and we all know the truth of the matter is that its really the liberal atheists of the democratic party that are the true psychotics. MWAH!! HA! LOVE YOU GUYS...
However, let me just point out that there is a lot of bigotry in the Evangelical wing in the GOP. They are a powerful bunch and have a lot of control over the party. This is disturbing to me. For one, they are the definers of "Christianity" and are very bigoted against Mormons and other religions. As a Mormon this pisses me off. I have written about this before, but let me just reiterate, I will not support a party that actively engages in anti-Mormon or any other form of religious bigotry. I can go elsewhere. NO, not to donkey hill, but I will politically masturbate and punch a losertarian chad any day over voting for such ass-hat idiots in the democratic party. So all you Mike Suckabee fans, take note...go after Mitt Romney because of his "abortion" views of 15 years ago you anal retentive religious bigots, we all know your real issue is with his Mormonism. NOT FOOLED.
The problem with the GOP is the identity crisis everyone seems to be arguing over. Go further left. Go further right. The "SHUT-UP RUSH" wing of the party needs to SHUT-UP even more. Seriously, does anybody think the democrats in all their gayness are dropping off ideology quizzes to their peeps to make sure they are "pure" demotard ideologues? NO THEY AREN'T...and they are winning elections. Republicans need to be able to disagree and still be united. Colin Powell does need to be a democrat and so does Megan McCain if they themselves can't hug and smooch the far-right and the far-right needs to cuddle with the moderates. Its not cool to pander to demotards just to get more gigs on "THE VIEW" the lamest show on TV. Rush and Hannity need to cross over to the losertarians and let the rest of us find some common ground we can build on. Please fondle our moderate butts and accept our GOP loyalty without our purist opinions. We ask that you just say thank you for our support. Last I checked a republican moderate vote isn't worth 3/5ths of a vote. And if a moderate candidate is our man, man-up far right sphincter squeezers. Sometimes its your turn, sometimes its not. Either way, the other choice is worse, Obama.
Conservative ideals need not change. Conservatives need to unite and stop with the Hitler-ish purist crap. Let's market ourselves as inclusive and not intrusive or exclusive. Or, we can continue to act like big fat babies whining about our trampled on ideals. Because at the end of the day, if George Bush were more popular, we would all be moderates and we would have another republican in the White House. Because so many in the party abandoned him over his non Ann Coulter, Laura Ingram, Michelle Malkin, Mike Savage idea of immigration and government spending, we lost. The party of "GET THE HELL OUT YOU COMMY RINO LIBERAL" is not gonna win friends and influence voters. Its time for the party to grow some hair on its peaches and stop acting like Obama was the alternative to our growing discontent. We all have a beef. Let's get over it like the someone once said. Get over ourselves and our elitist, unbending, conservative positions and support the party of OLD American ideals! We can allow some to have differing views and still love them as brothers and sisters in the party. Its not difficult, we learned how to do it in kindergarten. Susie likes a little blue with her red and its OK. Johnny is really really red, and we love him like he was one of our own. I need a place to park my I hate democrats vote!!
OK kids? Can't we all just get along?

Wow! I'm exhausted! But I think you said that Rush and Hannity are not good for the GOP and, if so, I heartily agree. There are plenty of good Republicans out there, conservative without being whacko. They need to find their voice. And I don't mean Sarah Palin - sorry but she isn't a quality candidate. But there are others. How much better this country would be if the good candidates were at the forefront and not just the loud-mouthed ones. Hell, I've voted Republican in the past - I vote for the candidate and not the party.

Sandi said...

P.S. I like Meghan McCain.

Nikki said...

Dandi, lol, of course u like Megan, she is basically a democrat!! Hahaha...but I admit I like Joe Lieberman who is a strong ass kicking conservative, with a dash of liberalism!! It's all good... :)N

namaste said...

LOL! what a rant and a half! nnniiiiiccceee.

boy oh boy, do you know how to let your peeps have it or what?! not that honesty matters to the majority in both parties. but i respect your honesty here, nik. it is my hope that one of these days we're gonna out number all the lying liars.

as for colin powell. oh geez. who can say for sure what his story is? all i know is he's a democrat collecting checks with his republican i.d.

;)

As usual, a wonderful rant! I loved President Reagan, but he did make mistakes. He did end up raising taxes. And at least he called it amnesty while today the window dressing in comprehensive immigration "reform". The difference between President Reagan and those who claimed the conservative mantle after him is that he always addressed the issues from the conservative perspective. He did compromise, but remember that the House was dominated by the Dims. And I do worry about some evangelicals in the GOP who engaged in Mormon-bashing. I still like Mitt. He clearly would be a superior president compared to the community thug in the White House. And, so he changed on some social issues. I WELCOME THAT! Becuase, to go back to President Reagan, even he changed to a pro-lifer. And, he paved the way for President Bush 43 to actually implement some abortion restrictions. Oh gosh, can we just throw Meghan McCain to the other side? I'll take Sen. Lieberman in a trade. Oh, and some of that Democrat cash as well! Again, great rant!

Why change? While I am curious in who will win this battle, I will say I am certainly enjoying the GOP collapse under the weight of the Religious Right. As a result of their ineptitude, we can all but guarantee Obama will easily nominate the furthest left Supreme Court judge possible not to mention countless other things conservatives hate like cutting super-effective abstinence-only education programs. As someone who can easily vote both ways and has (especially locally), I see little reason to vote for a national GOP candidate. No reason at all. The GOP needs to do a better job embracing moderates otherwise they have no reason to vote Republican. Politics is simply a numbers games...whoever has the votes wins regardless of merit (Romney/Clinton), "principles" (Huckabee/Paul), or experience (i.e. Palin/Obama).

Nikki said...

Maria, I love your line that Colin Powell is a democrat collecting on his republican ID! SWEET line...:)N

Nikki said...

righty, if the party were more like you my friend we wouldn't be having these problems! As it is it will continue to alienate many. Keep up the fight! :)N

Nikki said...

DB, you are such a little sadist! Stop enjoying the pain and suffering...;)N

t.durham said...

Nikki, luv ya. However you are woefully wrong on this point. Let me preach on it! When the republicans won their races they ran as conservatives. When they lost their races they ran as moderates. Republicans bought into the media crap that to win they must move to the left. Most if not all of these republicans won their initial races as true conservatives. It was only when they became moderates that they began losing! A moderate stands in the middle of the road. That is where you get run down. Answer me this...where do you in your heart of hearts disagree with "far" right cnservatives. I believe in their platform. If we adopt a middle approach we will not win any more elections we will only become what we hate.

Nikki said...

t. durham!!! I don't think we necessarily disagree...I am not saying where it is that I want the party to go. I am saying that the party should be more accepting of those who call themselves republicans but are not fully aligned with the party platform. I don't need to belong to a party that fits exactly 100% with my political philosophy, I just don't want to be called a RINO when I disagree. I don' think it did the party any good for the pundits and constituents to bitch and moan about Romney and his past positions, McCain and his coziness with dems. Not all repugs are gonna be anti-abortion, etc. etc. I am only saying that the party should keep its platform, but don't get all butt hurt when a candidate may or may not be EXACTLY what the far right or the mod's want. The American voter will vote for a strong republican, but we need to be careful of the bigotry we as a party show towards one another. It just isn't good politics. Luv ya back...:)N

t.durham said...

Nikki, I understand and accept your point in theory. However there must be a line in the sand where we as a people of principle will not cross. I am not a republican. I am a conservative. The republican party abandoned its conservative values it seems to curry favor with the major media. What I am getting at in a round my ass sort of way is garnering moderate support has not helped in winning elections. I believe conservatives will only win as conservatives. Keep em flying babe. Luv ya!

Mike G said...

Perfect! Huzzah!
We are allowing the Dems to define us.
Why have I not heard a GOP congressman ask, "So if Israel is attacked, will you [Obama] support Israel?" "Obama, if your worst case scenario for unempolyment was 8.9% and we're there now, how can you pay for all your increased spending?" "What is our purpose in Afghanistan?" "What are your intentions in regards to India?" "Do you feel Chavez is a stabilizing influence and a good promoter of democratic ideals?"
Why can't these people ask GOOD questions and ask them OVER and OVER and OVER again until he answers? We wait for the "media" to do it but it takes a Joe the Plumber to ask and create the maelstrom. Come on Pence, Cantor, Kyl et al...ask the hard questions, you can do it!!!

DB said...

Why have I not heard a GOP congressman ask...Obvious...they don't have any solutions to the questions you would want asked.

The Dems in washington require strict adherence to their protocols the repubs don't. There are a lot of moderates in the repubs in washington, the dems are all lefties. Look at Joe Lieberman, he strayed from the dem line on one issue, the war, and they kicked him out of the party. The repubs are the big tent party and have been. we lost this last election because the media is lying to us. And the teachers have corrupted the young voters. And it is "fashionable to vote for a black man" and we are a degenerate country where all that matters is popularity. Our principles are gone, woe is us.

DB said...

Of course, how stupid of everyone. It's the media and teachers we should blame! Politicians in power never lie to us. Ever.

Anonymous said...

Yes the media is corrupted favoring Obama, this week Obama told them at the press dinner "everyone here voted for me" they smiled. Teachers are so far left they have a pine tree up their ass, with global warming buffoons eating the pine nuts. The fact is the last 8 years there has been global cooling, not global warming. And I will have to correct you, politicians lie, even "dear leader" mac daddy long legs

DB said...

I am not going to claim the media isn't bias or teachers not being liberal, but have you ever thought for a second that maybe, just maybe, Republicans and conservatives are to blame for their own failures? I mock your arrogance thinking you people are so perfect that the only possible way you can lose is if someone steals if from you. You guys are like teenagers with entitlement issues...you blame everyone else for your problems rather than being critical of yourselves. You guys are nothing different than Al Gore and the liberals who bitched to all hell about how unfair life is and how conservatives stole the election from them. You are the 2009 Al Gore. Deal with it.

Do you honestly think that everyone who voted actually followed the news? Are conservative parents ashamed at their own failure at parenting that teachers have more of an impact on their children's lives than the parents? BLAME YOURSELVES. Failed conservative policies lost the election. Why else would the majority of people knowingly vote to have their taxes raised? Oh ya, media conspiracy.

In any case, the GOP has nothing to offer me. Why should I vote for them? Dems aren't much better, but if you are going to compare the two...

btw, you don't have to correct my sarcasm...politicians lie.

Stanley DeWalt said...

I have to say, overall your comments are very good, intelligent. I just have a few clarifications.

The problems with the right, is they have not ridiculed the left. They are stuck with this idea that they have to be polite all the time, and it has gotten them no where. You have to fight fire with fire. The right needs to stand up and grow a pair and start yelling in the leftsicks faces. I love freedom and the poor, that is my core. by the way. I am a democrat when helping the poor and a republican on almost all else.

DB said...

So...if the right ridicules the left more all their problems are solved? What kind of twisted logic is that? Out of all the problems the GOP has, that wouldn't rank very high. Give me a break.
