An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Every morning, I wake up, thank God for another day on His creation, and pray the last four years have just been a bad dream, realize the nightmare isn’t over, wondering if it ever will be, and drag myself out of bed. Having to face the horror that has become the U.S.A. is, sometimes, just more than I care to deal with on a regular basis.
What can we do? What can I do? Do we just blindly accept that the spawn of Satan has taken over control of our lives, or do we fight back? If we fight back, how? We had an election stolen, and no one will do a damn thing. The fraud was so massive that the integrity of all future elections will be in question, yet…..crickets.
Then, we have the so called Republicans that we put our trust in, in the House. Apparently, that trust was misplaced. Here is a snippet of from a piece by Erick Erickson:
Not quite two weeks removed from Thanksgiving, it is worth giving thanks to John Boehner, Eric Cantor, and Kevin McCarthy. I really am thankful for them.
Yesterday the three of them purged fiscal conservatives from committees as punishment for being authentically fiscal conservatives. Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina was put on the Financial Services Committee to show fiscal conservatism had nothing to do with removing Congressmen Justin Amash and David Schweikert, but that just causes me to question Mick Mulvaney’s conservative bona fides now.
Congressmen Schweikert, Amash, and Congressman Tim Huelskamp now removed from the Budget Committee, have been punished for daring to defy John Boehner during the debt ceiling fight, etc. They pointed out what would happen with John Boehner’s deal. They were the Cassandras of the fiscal cliff, predicting we’d be exactly where we are and they voted against getting us here.
They have now been punished.
When Boehner was first chosen to be Speaker, I thought “maybe we finally have a pit bull on our side”, but learned quite quickly, what we got was a chihuahua. Oh, I’m sure he’s a nice guy, and all that, but we don’t need nice guys in leadership positions when we are fighting for our very survival.
Pointing their fingers as fiscal conservatives now punished, casting them out as scape goats, will do nothing to woo the media or the White House, but we should be thankful. We should absolutely be thankful for these three men.
As the sun rises this morning we can look at John Boehner, Eric Cantor, and Kevin McCarthy and know the opposition is not just across the aisle, but in charge of our own side in the House of Representatives. All the time and energy I would otherwise have to spend to convince conservatives that these gentlemen would be a problem for the GOP has been spared. They’ve proven it themselves.
Now, we no longer have to fight against the evil of Obama and his minions, we have to do battle with evil of the Republican Party as well? I’m not sure I have the energy anymore. I pretty much left the Party quite a while ago, but since there has been no viable alternative, had no choice but to support anyone, and anything that would rid us of Marxist that currently resides in the house that George built. To continue to support a party that no longer reflects the values of an extremely large number of people, would be ludicrous.
We have two choices in this matter. We rid the party of the wishy washy, feckless fence sitters, the go along to get along, or we create an alternative. There is a third alternative…. we fight to regain control of our country, literally, to rid ourselves of the treasonous bast*ards, remove the threat of tyranny, once and for all. I’m old, in poor health, and will likely be killed off by ObamaCare at some point in the future. It will be up to the younger folks to decide what our country will be, what course to take…liberty or tyranny. I had hoped that the recent election would have resolved the issue, but sadly, the ignorance is apparent, and there were too many who are willing to give up their freedom, to be chained in slavery to the federal government. I, for one, do not want to live in a country that would choose tyranny over liberty and slavery over freedom.
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace– but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God!
I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!
