Suppose I put two glasses in front of you. The first glass is filled to the top with a lethal poison. The second one is filled to the top with your favorite beverage mixed with just a small amount of the same lethal poison.
Which one would you drink from?
I’m guessing that you wouldn’t drink from the first one because it’s pure poison. But I bet that you would also pass on the second glass, because even a little poison is a bad idea.
For years, when it came to the elections, Republicans voters have had to choose between a glass full of poison (Democrat/Progressive) and a glass with just a little poison in it (Republican/Progressive). As we see in the hypothetical example above, neither one is really a good idea.
Much to the chagrin of Karl Rove, Christine O’Donnell knocked out the preferred pick of the Republican “Good ol’ Boys Club” for Senate, RINO Mike Castle, a “Republican” who carries a lifetime score of 52% from the American Conservative Union, an “F” from the National Rifle Association (NRA), and carries a consistent ZERO from the National Right To Life while earning a perfect 100% from NARAL and Planned Parenthood.
Republican power-brokers were so up in arms about how they might lose out on becoming the party in control in November that the Republican Senatorial Committe initially refused to provide Ms. O’Donnell any financial support. It’s this kind of reaction from the party leaders power junkies that reveal the real problem.
Republicans aren’t concerned about returning America to her Constitutional foundation. They don’t care about our loss of liberty, excessive taxes and out-of-control spending.
They are only concerned about one thing – POWER!
Sure, progressives tend to have a “D” after their name, but what difference does it make to have an “R” after your name if you’re nothing more than “progressive-lite?”
Cap and Trade Tax – Obamacare – Financial overhaul. These and many other job-killing, wealth redistribution and liberty stealing items on the progressive agenda would have never made it passed first base if not for the RINOs in the Senate and the House of Representatives. In all of these cases, it only took a little poison to do the trick.
The bottom line in all of this is that Conservatives are no longer going to accept a candidate just because they wear the Republican label. In Deleware (see also Alaska, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Kentucky, and Florida) Conservatives have decided that even a little poison can kill.
More proof about the REAL priorities of the Republican party establishment came to light today as Republican aides threatened Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), who chairs the Senate Conservatives Fund with retribution for opposing the party powerful.
Perhaps the Mitch McConnell’s of the Republican party should heed the advice of Barry Goldwater Jr.
Goldwater said tea party activists are actually fighting for many of the same principles his father stood for: smaller government and lower taxes.
“Reminds me a lot of the conservative movement in 1960 and 1964,” Goldwater said. “It is an effort by people who are sick and tired of the country moving to the left.”
In other words, it’s time to get rid of the poison.
By the way, did you know that Christine O’Donnell’s opponent (Chris Coons) credits his exposure to Marxism in Kenya for his conversion to the Democrat party (he used to be Republican)? Yeah, she’s the “extremist,” right?
