I knew the outcome before it had been announced. There would be no way in which McConnell would do anything differently from what he did in 2011. The sell-out Republicans in the Senate, excepting a few token “resistors” have voted with the Democrats to raise taxes and cut spending by a ratio of 41:1. That’s right, they’re going to cut one dollar in spending for every forty-one dollars they’ve raised in taxes. If you are an entrepreneur, just forget about making any money. If you’ve scrimped and saved in order to make your lot in life a little better, forget about it. If you’re a welfare moocher, the gravy train will continue. What this means is simple enough to understand: Your Republican party has succeeded in throwing your hard work, your efforts for prosperity, and your tireless struggles on the funeral pyre of America. These Republicans are helping Obama in his goal to kill jobs, kill wealth, and ultimately, to kill the country. Now the action returns to the House, where John Boehner will push his members to Obama’s bidding. Once again, your Grand Old Party has abandoned you, but what we must now consider is when mere political treachery traverses the boundaries of treason.
Do you want a job? Do you want a better job? Sorry. You want sanity in government spending? Balanced budgets? What budget? Budgets are so antiquated. Why should politicians be restrained by budgeting, never mind balancing them? In truth, our problem is that we have no opposition party. The concept of loyal opposition isn’t even relevant. There simply is no opposition. We are being ruled by a gang of thugs, and the only split between Republicans and Democrats is in the matter of how much they will pinch us. It’s more like rival factions of gangsters, all under the same mob bosses, with only the matter of which particular gang will rule the day remaining in question. Boehner’s arm-twisting tactics will be employed to bring the few remaining actual conservatives into line, and those who opt to oppose him will find their posts on various committees stripped from them. Even now, as The Hill reports, Boehner is busily crafting a voting majority comprised in part of his “100 loyal soldiers” (Loyal to him, but not to the constitution,) and a number of Democrats who will together shove this legislation down our throats.
Back in early December, I warned about the coming betrayals of Boehner and his band of sell-outs, and I urged that we rid the Congress of this fifth-column wart on the face of the party. Now you will have it, and your lives and the lives of your children will suffer for it. It wasn’t hard to predict, as past is prologue in Washington DC. In 2011, when Boehner walked conservatives off the plank, and when so many conservatives were scratching their heads in disbelief at the utter weakness being projected by Republican leadership in the House, I told you that these people were not working for us. At the time, I was mocked, and there were those who scoffed at my assessments, but by now, the matter should be clear. If you’re waiting for the Republican Party to rescue you, or to stand in the name of the dying republic, you will be disappointed repeatedly.
Why do they not fight? The answer is simple: Some of them are in league with the statists, adopting their principles, and some are merely cowards who wish to retain power. These people will disappear when the country collapses, to the bunkers for which you have paid, with the provisions for which you have been taxed, secured by guards you have funded, with weaponry to which you will not have access as the mobs ravage the countryside. They will be safe. Their money or wealth will be shielded. All of the “fiscal cliff” theater is simply one more diversion. The consequences of the so-called “fiscal cliff” were not so severe as pretended, but the debt cliff over which we will now almost certainly plummet shall constitute the real undoing of America.
Happy New Year America! John Boehner hates you. Nancy Pelosi dismisses you. Mitch McConnell despises you. Harry Reid spits on you. How do you know the difference between Republican and Democrat? By their beliefs? As expressed through their actions and their votes? Tell me once more: What is the difference? The Club for Growth is warning the GOP not to make this deal, but do you think Boehner and the boys will listen? No. It’s time to embrace reality, and to see for once and for all that there can be no salvation through the Republican party. The GOP is not interested in saving the country, but only themselves.
And you will pay for it all…
