If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

GOP Leadership Is the Problem, Not The Solution

The really sad thing is, this is what grass roots bloggers like myself (http://thevailspot.blogspot.com) have been saying for the past 2 years. The GOP "elite" establishment is part of the problem. They are NOT part of the solution. They have spent the past 40 years "going along to get along" with the Dem's that they have given up all of the principles of the GOP. They rail against increased spending, then pass "continuing resolutions" because they lack the back bone to stand up the the Dem controlled Senate (which hasn't passed a budget in FOUR YEARS!).


Boehner doesn't have the strength of charecter, or the moral will to pass a budget and send it to the Senate, then refuse to do any more business until the Senate passes a budget. He needs to send every single member of the GOP caucus home to talk about how the Senate (Dem control) has refused to do it's Constitutional duty of passing a budget. He needs to send out every single member of his causus to tell their constituents how Obama has not submitted HIS budget plans within the Constitutionally mandated time period...Obama is now more than a month past due with his budget.


The GOP leadership in the House and the Senate need to start a scorched earth publicity battle with the Socialist Democratic Party and begin to explain to voters just how they want to tax and regulate America into 2nd world status...just like Dem's have done in California, Illinois, New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts. (Those states economies are the weakest in the nations due to Blue State policies of heavy regulation of business).


The GOP leadership is part of the problem, and not part of the solution. The GOP is well on the way out as a political party because the leadership in DC are just as much to blame as the Democratic party...they are statists in all but name. It's time for them to go!


The Tea Party movement started because the GOP political leadership has failed utterly in following the principles that the party stands for. This is what happens when the leadership of a party become divorced from what the grass roots desire. The GOP used to stand for smaller, less intrussive government, but our leadership is so enamoured of it's pork, and spending other people's money, that they are now the problem...not the sollution. It's time for the GOP to join the Federalist and Whig parties on the dust heap of history. They have failed to stay true to the tenents of the party, and have lost their way politically.


I suspect that within the next 1o years, unless the leadership weans itself away from the cotery of lobbyists and "experts" (who have by the way lost every election they were in charge of since 2004) that there will be, if not a massive change, they will be tossed aside by the surging Tea Party movement.


Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio weren't elected because they are "establishment" candidates. They were elected by the Tea Party movement. While the TP isn't perfect, and has chosen some horrendous candidates, by and large, it is the future of fiscally conservative movement in America. The GOP leadership ignores them at their own peril.
