Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler » Oh, And to All of you Fellow Conservatives

…who agree with me that our current “conservatives” in Congress aren’t all they ought to be but still insist that we should vote for them regardless because you’re justifiably worried about what a Democrat Congress might do, here’s a suggestion that I think we could get together on:

If you’re lucky enough to live in a State or a District whose representative is a true conservative, and that goes for all of us who might be that lucky, vote for him or her. DO get out the vote and make your voices heard. This is NOT about stomping our feet and being silly, we leave that to the other side.

If not, however, if you happen to have an incumbent who is about as “conservative” as Harry Reid, let’s find a conservative counter-candidate for the primaries that we can back up and stump for until our fingers bleed. I volunteer whatever clout I may have for the cause and I will do anything (short of breaking the law, and the CFR doesn’t count since it’s un-Constitutional and thus I am not bound by my oath to uphold it, as a matter of fact I’m bound by it to do the exact oppposite) to boost their campaign.

Let’s get some true conservatives on the ballot, and let’s use our strength to work together, not against each other.

But if our guys don’t prevail in the primaries, don’t expect me to back the RINO “because he’s not Pelosi”, because I’m a little bit too mature to fall for Democrat campaign slogans. I’m staying at home.

Just let’s work together up until that point. I sense a lot of disgust among you so-called “Kool-Aid Drinkers” (I’m not trying to offend here, really I’m not, I know that a lot of you are just as disgusted as I am with the RINOs in Congress as I am) too, so why don’t we work together instead of letting the enemy divide and conquer?

Let’s work together to fire the Arlen Sphincters of Congress.

We have a common cause here, so why let the fact that I’m an opinionated asshole divide us?

Just sayin’, ’s all.

    Frankly, I think our country would be better served if both sides actually had more people get out, find the folks they support and work to get them elected. I am all in favor of voting out all 535 and starting over. For folks like Byrd, Kennedy, Thurman (i know he’s gone, but he was the only long serving R I can think of), it is a life, not a career. Turn the bastards out, and get someone else in there. I would love to see the issues fought out be new blood, ones whose ideals have not been worn away due to the sand in the Congressional gears.

    I’m just as mad as the next guy, when I watch these pantie-waist “Conservatives” kow-towin’ to the Loud-Mouth LibeRATS in Congress.

    But…

    The idea(?) of just “stayin’ at home” is NOT an option.

    For instance…

    You don’t like the “huge” 2.8% Deficit?…Just remember, DemonicRATS wanted to spend $132 Billion MORE, in this last budget.

    You don’t like the “immigration” situation?…Just remember, DemonicRATS want “Open Borders”

    And, I’m sure, I don’t have to remind you of the “Surrender Monkey” attitude of the Party of Big Mouths & Small Ideas.

    So, in the interests of keeping it short; if you’re longing for the “Honesty & Integrity” of the former Administration, just “stay at home”

  15. RobH Comment by RobH

    I truly believe that each citizen has an obligation to not only vote, but to communicate with one’s elected officials - they need to know what we think about issues and why, otherwise we end up in a situation like the one we have now - we perceive Washington as “out of touch” with the electorate and it’s true.
    As for myself, I’ve written my Senators and Congressman, heck, I even wrote Newt, about this insane illegal immigration problem, and I’m following this issue with great interest.

    I think a good gauge to determine who’s a RINO and who still has an ounce of principle will be how they vote on the Immigration Reform Bill; the OTHER gauge is how much PORK they throw into spending bills.

    If they “compromise” on our border and allow some “amnesty” for illegals, and if they “pork” spending bills, they are NOT going to get my vote.

  16. kbarrett Comment by kbarrett UNITED STATES

    If you want a say in who gets nominated, then you need to start participating in your party’s activities at the precinct level.

    Just calling congress-critters once they are elected is not enough.

    Precinct commitees are the groups that get candidates nominated … find yours and join it now.

  17. Unregistered Comment by Kittymama

    Oh mighty Emporer (this is my first post here)!

    I agree with you wholeheartedly. I really do believe the RINOs need to lose this off-election so that they get their heads out of their butts & do their job.

    What scares me tho, is what happens if the Dems do take control of both the House & Senate. We face the very real, & frightening, possibility of them legalizing 30 million (reports are that the Heritage Foundation is releasing a study today showing the number of potential illegals to be 30 million OR MORE) illegals before the next election. Then our country really is screwed. Kind of a tough choice–wanting the RINOs to learn the hard way or the possibility of Dems actually running Congress.

    And no, that’s not racist sentiment. I firmly believe immigrants are what built, & continue to build, this country. I’m all for upping quotas on immigration. That would include people from Africa, Asia, & Europe. (It fascinates me that noone has picked up on the gross unfairness to people from non-Hispanic nations that don’t have the luck of the geographic draw in simply giving blanket amnesty to illegals. People from the Phillippines or India or Haiti or Asian nations or African nations are totally screwed on this.) LEGAL immigrants. Immigrants who actually have an education, skills, & are willing to learn English. Not someone who is only able to scrub my toilet or dig in the mud. (And don’t give me that BS about Americans not wanting to do that work. My buddy Derrick, a LEGAL immigrant from Jamaica, has a housecleaning business that he does on top of the 40 hours a week he works at my company. He’s hired several people from our mailroom & elsewhere to work for him as well. All Americans. Proof that if you are willing to pay a decent salary, Americans can & will work.) Housecleaning is not a valuable need for this country. Someone who can do programming, is a math scholar, or a biologist, or an engineer, or wants to set up a little store & work 90 hours a week & ultimately put their kids thru college, or someone who wants to start a franchise shop–THOSE are needs for this country.

    demonicgerbil sez:

    “I’ve given up on politics.”

    I’m about there, myself.

    “I’m just going to wait for the revolution I hear my leftie friends calling for…”

    They won’t need a ‘revolution’ if they win both houses this Nov. Then they can excercise their ire at losing to Bush twice by endless calls for impeachment, while ignoring the real crises with which we are faced. Run from any fight, open the borders wide, spend, spend, spend, shut down talk radio, etc etc. In any case they haven’t the balls or skills for a street fight.

    “- at least in a street fight one man can actually make a difference.”

    Second that. But we’ll either be fighting the illegals, who’ll probably be defended by the cops /military or, if WE start the real revolution to restore the Republic and the rule of the Constitution, the establishment will use all the military power they can command, even to the use of foreign troops.

    I think, hope and pray that our military folks would refuse, by a wide margin, to assault the American People. Many would join us. And if foreign troops were brought in by “our” government, it would be the biggest mistake they ever made and would turn many an otherwise undecided to our cause.

    So, what are we waiting for? We know the election process is so rigged in favor of the two big parties, neither of which is proving trustworthy, and one of which is openly treasonous. Why all the blather about how or whether to vote? The only way for “fresh blood” to occupy the corridors of responsibility in Washington is to spill the old blood.

    OK, so I’ll run against the House Majority Leader here in my district. Let’s see that campaign support, serious media coverage and money sufficient to unseat him start rolling in…

    Yeah, right.

    While it’s too late to do anything for the ‘06 or even the ‘08 “Hold Your Collective Noses and Try NOT to Gag” elections, we all need to be searching for viable third parties to support. We’re in the position we’re in now because we have simply supported only Dems or Repubs. We NEED a third party to put the other two on notice that they are NOT the only show in town. Start searching now. Start contributing NOW. Vote Republicat for the next two years (since the other choice is just too nausiating to think about) and see if we can’t get the Constitutionalist, Jacksonians, etc, some traction for the next round of elections. There are enough people fed up with the RINO’s that a good, Constitution grounded would have a good chance of getting some serious consideration.

  25. Unregistered Comment by LC Jon, Imperial Hunter UNITED STATES

    “The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected. Even when the revolutionist might himself repent of his revolution, the traditionalist is already defending it as part of his tradition. Thus we have two great types—the advanced person who rushes us into ruin, and the retrospective person who admires the ruins.”—G. K. Chesterton

  26. Mrs. M Comment by Mrs. M UNITED STATES

    I just posted basically the same thing that I just posted here, on Lucianne and got this responce

    3rd parties are for morons, whether it is the losertarians or Constitutionalists or Greens…you aren’t making a statement, you aren’t accomplishing anything (other than getting what you don’t want, i.e. the other party winning).

    Libertarians are part of the reason we can’t get 60 conservative senators. In several close elections in Red states, libertarians can be the difference that elects the lefty.

    We have 2 parties, neither of which is pure. Deal with it like a grown-up.

    Comments, Suggestions?

    I think this is exactly the reason our Gubmint is in the state it is. There is no viable third party or solution to what we have now. Can someone show me in the Constition that states that our Government is to only be a two party system???

  27. Unregistered Comment by a4g UNITED STATES

    I’m a dedicated drinker of the sour, fetid drink called Republican Kool-Aide. You are correct that we are disgusted as well.

    But I live in California. Year after year, after the primaries, all my beloved Conservative candidates have gone down in flames, and I’m left with what’s left.

    The reason I hold my nose and vote is not benefit of the candidate at hand, but for the all-important chairmanships of the committees. God in His wisdom has a plan even for the lowly and useless RINO– as a warm body that tips the scales on every committee in Congress.

    Tom Tancredo will not be helped by being a minority voice in the minority party.

    In the minority, the party will have to close ranks to have any power at all. Dissenting voices will be stiffled even more than now. Tthe balance of power within the party will shift dramatically towards the RINOs, who will wield even more power when flirting with the Dems.

    Your call to energize in the primaries is absolutely correct. But on election day, you still need to vote Republican because your vote extends power far further than just the milquetoast pablum you are pulling the lever for.

    When your buddy from out of state gets himself a date with a supermodel, but can’t seal the deal unless you double date with her two-bagger “friend”, sometimes you just close your eyes and take one for the team.

    You posted that at Lucianne, the Kool-Aid HQ of the right? You’re a braver man than I am, ma’am :-)

    Somehow the “deal with it” crowd seem to suffer under the delusion that the Democrat and Republican parties sprang forth, fully-formed, from the brow of George Washington and that this is the way things are Meant to Be Forever More.

    A delusion caused, no doubt, by a life-long aversion to reading history books.

  29. Emperor Darth Misha I Comment by Emperor Darth Misha I UNITED STATES

    Good points, a4g, and part of me actually agrees with you. It’s like having flippin’ voices in my head, I tell you ;-)

    Seriously, though. You’re right. Sometimes you DO need to “take one for the team”. Sometimes you DO have to do something that is deeply distasteful in order to get what you want on some other issue.

    The problem is that it’s a personal decision. Some of us can take a lot of abuse, some of us can take less. At some point it’s inevitable that the abuse gets to be so much that even the “who’s going to help pay the rent?” argument won’t keep the battered housewife from kicking her drunk, useless, abusive husband out of the door, and good for her!

    Some of us have reached that point, some of us haven’t. Yet. But eventually the wife-beater is going to be kicked out of the House unless he mends his ways and QUICK.

    We shouldn’t be wasting our time shouting at each other, imploring our fellow conservatives to take just ONE more beating, THIS time it’ll be different, we promise!

    We should be confronting the abusive sons of bitches on the Hill, telling them that they either jump on the wagon and get treatment OR ELSE!

    And frankly, I don’t see how we can get their attention in other ways than by handing out termination letters.

    LOL…well ordinarily I can agree with oh….90% of the posters there. Which I know makes me sound like a Kool aid drinker myself…but there are pleny of pissed off people there on this issue and there are certainly those that continue to have their lips firmly planted on GW’s ass. Someone is actually keeping a tally of those that want immediate action and closed borders, and those that have the Kool Aid IV firmly implanted. Right now it’s 85% to 14%. THAT should say something for how people really feel about this issue.
    It’s just this mind set of there only being Repubs and DemRats. I know there has to be a way to have another choice without jepordizing what our Country stands for.

    I saw an interesting comment at HotAir (Michelle Malkin has opened registration & is taking comments on her vent about illegals). I don’t have a blog, but perhaps our mighty Emporer might think about this & start a blog movement to get it going.

    How about “doing a liberal” (as the poster called it)? As in, staying home from work & attending a protest to show the economic & political power of those who DO vote & live in this country legally?

    I would love to see a movement started to have a protest like that. Maybe for some time in the fall. Naturally, I would assume that all the companies & school districts who so respectfully allowed people to show their support for lawbreakers would have equal respect for those of us on the other side of the issue. (Do you think the MSM would cover it as anything other than a racist protest?) For those that don’t? Well, maybe we can also work at finding some attorneys &/or interest groups that would be willing to bring legal action against school districts that didn’t allow students to attend such a demonstration (particularly if a district did allow students to attend the May 1 rally).

    We all gotta remember that we get who we vote for - and that We the People are really in Charge, despite what the MSM and the talking head punditry would like you to believe.

    I am ALL FOR a CLEAN SWEEP this November, if for no other reason than to REMIND these elected officials who they work for and WHY, and maybe THEN will Washington clean up its act - we need to continue holding politicians accountable to US, not the other way around!

    My first Navy Fighter Squadron Skipper used to say “you should NEVER be comfortable because when you get comfortable, you get complacent, and when you get complacent, you get lazy, and when you get lazy, you become useless and ultimately start caring only for your own comfort as opposed to serving others.”

    Great words to live by, and to hold officials accountable for!
