Lagniappe's Dad has a post up that pretty well encapsulates where I am on politics at the moment. Especially where the GOP is concerned.
I am a Conservative with a capitol C. I've also been a Republican since I first voted for Reagan way back when. I'm capitalist and pro Second Amendment and in favor of smaller government and less regulation.
I have supported the GOP but that may be coming to an end. I find the current infighting between the GOP establishment and the literal voice of the people in selecting conservative candidates infuriating.
Borepatch has an interesting take here. Raz as well.
The bottom line is that those same squishy, RINO, establishment Republicans who led us down this road are loathe to give up their power and will do anything they can to ensure that the people's choices will never be elected. It's personal politics over the good of the nation or the desires of the electorate.
It's time for the establishment to clean house. It's time for castle, rove, murkowski, mccain and all the rest (I'm looking at you here Michael Steele) to go away. It is beyond the pale that the biggest threat to a return to conservative government in this country is the Republican party.
It's now past the sending a message point. This is no longer a request. Get with the program and support the candidates We The People have seen fit to reward with our support and our votes or get the hell out of the party. Democrat lite and the good old boy way of nominating candidates is no longer going to fly and won't ever, ever again.
The handwriting is on the wall. Learn to read or be crushed. It really is that simple.
