We Have Met the Enemy and ....

Revolution, Insurrection, Paradigm Shift: All are necessary if Conservatives are to prevail. The Left already owns us. Our leaders are co-opted. Can any measure short of Revolution prevail?


Conservatives must choose Revolution – and now.

A pivotal mid-term election is upon us. No matter the outcome, however, the Republican Establishment will rule. And the Republican Establishment is entirely hostile to Republican Conservatives.
Today’s Establishment Republicans have grown even more odious than they were during the Reagan and Goldwater eras. They control all conventional paths to power, money, and position. They are comfortable in the presumption their rule is inviolable, their eventual sinecures assured. They believe the Conservative rabble will either submit or perish. They do not understand the rules have changed. No longer will Conservatives accept battles only in the times and places of the Establishment’s choosing.

For example, what if a Congressperson held a Press Conference every single day about one topic—the same topic each day: “We’d like to announce this is Day 750 of the Cover-up of the Benghazi Massacre. Questions?”
Paradoxically, at a time when continued deception would best serve the Establishment’s efforts to maintain control, its overt attacks upon Conservatives have flushed its true nature from the weeds of misdirection and indistinct outlines. The Establishment now openly, brazenly, attacks Conservatives, even boasts of its attacks. It proclaims, loudly, it is no longer willing even to imitate allegiance to Conservative principles.

The Republican Establishment’s contemporary predations upon Conservative Republicans might constitute merely the painful and annoying intransigence common to the old guard of any organization. But the Establishment is using live ammunition. So must we.

We must admit that despite living in a country where most voters self-identify conservative sentiments, we are also a country, a Party, subject to the checkered pants money-boys and their self-interested shills in the Republican Leadership.

It does not matter that both Republicans and Democrats must repeatedly campaign as bona fide Conservatives, or that 49 of 50 states voted for Reagan in his 1984 re-election—yes, 49 - or that voters always respond positively to any/all politicians who declare for Conservative principles.
Conservative Cause must become Revolutionary

It does not matter that our Conservative Cause is righteous and astoundingly popular. Our Cause must also be successful. And to be successful, against an Establishment working for our demise, the Conservative Cause must become Revolutionary.

Conservatives must jettison any loyalty whatsoever to tradition and accepted power structures. For instance, Speaker Boehner, in his House, presumes to whip Conservative lawmakers into line by withholding “committee assignments,” privileges to speak on the floor, to introduce legislation, and worse. Our response should be: “So what?” Are there truly no more creative ways than these to prove oneself a champion of the people and the Conservative Cause? In fact, aren’t Speaker Boehner’s conditional slops actually antithetical (other than for CSPAN coverage) to our Cause?

Why not take the “Committee assignment hit” and reverse it? Why not employ it as a badge of fidelity to the Conservative brand; why not “lead” with it in every interview? “Well, as I was saying, as a proud member of the Boehner Blacklist Brigade, I believe…”

Why not outflank the “lawmaking” enterprise entirely and become ‘heroes of the people?’ Why not act upon the visceral understanding that most citizens are always and entirely unaware of their Congressperson’s legislation—and do not care in any case? Why not recognize routine lawmaking for the vitality-draining mundanity it has become? We can no longer afford our Congresspersons acting like Congresspersons. We can no longer afford having our Congresspersons believing or acting as if the markers of their success have anything to do with the Establishment’s paradigms or limitations.

Revolution, Insurrection, Paradigm Shift: All are necessary if Conservatives are to prevail. The Left already owns us. Our leaders are co-opted. Can any measure short of Revolution prevail? [continue]

I'm forever struck by how Canada Free Press is so incisive about our politics; a New York Times antidote from the Great White North

Article I, Section 5 of the United States Constitution provides that "Each House [of Congress] may determine the Rules of its proceedings, punish its members for disorderly behavior,, and, with the concurrence of two-thirds, expel a member [for "any law, rule, regulation, or other standard of conduct applicable to the conduct of such Member... in the performance of his duties or the discharge of his responsibilities].
I love the idea of this Revolution, but the revolutionaries better have a decent headcount before starting a serious effort along this line. I have no idea how many Boehner/Mcconnell toadies exist in each house, but I would not put it past either of these two corrupt "leaders" to try to expel a few lone wolves who tried this tactic.

I LEFT THE FOLLOWING, which will probably be censored:

"Nice general ideas but, when you get to your specific examples, they are lame and counterproductive. The Congressman (NO, I WON'T use your d*mned P.C. "person" garbage) would be arrested, mocked or ignored...much like the whiny Code Pink Leftists....and RIGHTLY SO.

When you come up with specifics that INSPIRE others (to do more than roll their eyes), get back to me."
