The Republicans have no testicular fortitude

The Republican wave in November was not caused by establishment republicans. It was caused by Tea Party constitutional conservatives. This was ignored by John Boehner with the passing of the cromnibus bill. The election has now been ignored further by the representatives, elected to power by Tea Party types in their districts, who within minutes of being sworn in, immediately abandoned their election promises, and sided with the crony establishment.

Over 60% of republicans want a new house speaker, and yet only around 10% of republicans in the house did anything to change that today.

Here are the men who do actually have a pair of testicles. If they one of them is your representative, I suggest you call them and thank them for taking a stand against evil. Evil being doing nothing in the face of growing tyranny, and a disrespect for the nation’s financial interests, which is paramount to our stability.

One of the biggest disappointments for me today was Trey Gowdy. A man who many were calling to replace John Boehner. Had he bothered to return to DC earlier, and had he had the courage to stand up to Boehner, he could well be speaker of the house right now, and not back room deals Boehner.

We did not elect a huge majority in the house and the senate so that everyone could play along to get along. We do not want you all to play nice. We do not want the further erosion of our constitutional freedoms so that you can play the game. The system is broken, but the majority of republicans want to continue to play in it, instead of digging down deep and finding a pair in order to fix it.

The display today was shameful, and will go down in history as a pivotal point that led to the collapse of the current GOP. We the people, are sick and tired of their constant shenanigans.

There is a reason why the republicans have lost four of the last six election cycles for the presidency. The candidates were not conservative enough. Bush the first was ousted for turning his back on his campaign promises. Bush the second got through by the skin of his teeth, and only because he played lip service to conservatism. McCain and Romney were utter failures, owing to their progressive tendencies. They couldn’t even beat an outright socialist. And now Jeb Bush seeks the presidency? Does he seriously think he will clinch it by ignoring the conservative base? Give me a break. We’ll end up with Hillary as president before a Bush the third. It would be akin to voting George the third into office.

The antics played out today, coupled with the shenanigans at the end of last year with the passing of the one trillion dollar cromnibus bill, will grow to haunt the GOP and the establishment fools.

All of those who voted for John Boehner have no spines and no souls. It’s not about whether the guy is likable or not, and we don’t give a damn about your stupid committee seats. Its about whether the man can get the job done, and apparently he can’t.

We need fiscal responsibility, and real conservatism. This bunch haven’t got the balls to do what needs to be done. And sooner or later that will prove to be their undoing. The world is changing, and real conservatives are sick and tired of these silly games. As the earth shifts with the grass roots movements, these RINO’s, these progressives, will find they have no more legs left to stand on. The GOP was created over one hundred and fifty years ago to take a stand for what was right. It may well be undone for not taking one today.

Changes in perception on libertarianism

For a while I considered myself very libertarian, and in many ways I still do, but perhaps now I am more of a little L Libertarian. I am finding myself ever more conservative, especially in light of recent events.

As the news sources continually pour out stories of Russia invading the Ukraine, the rise of the Islamic State, and general belligerence from other nations in the world, I find myself reassessing old points of view on libertarianism.

Point of View

During the 1800’s, from the time of the Napoleonic War all the way until the start of the first world war, Great Britain ruled the oceans. Being a mostly free nation, concentrated on trade, the world entered a boom phase. Not only did the United Kingdom lead the industrial revolution, it brought peace and relative stability to the world, allowing capitalism to flourish.

Today the United States of America is the world’s foremost superpower. It is a mostly free nation, concentrated on trade.  Since the end of the second world war, America has been dominant, maintaining relative peace and stability in the world.

Now, there have been many wars, and many lives lost over the last few decades, but those numbers pale in comparison to the lives lost in the two world wars. The US took up where Britain left off in maintaining trade and capitalism in the world.

America’s foreign policy is one of a projection of force. Most countries have the understanding that if they are peaceful toward us, we are glad to trade with them, if they are hostile toward us, we are likely to obliterate them.

There have been many mistakes in America’s foreign policies over the last few decades, many of which will be argued over for many more decades to come. A lot of people say that we should never have gotten involved in Iraq to begin with, and I can understand these arguments.

However. The rise of the Islamic State is not something the world should sit by and allow to happen. The Islamic State is a barbaric and backwards regime. Not only do they kill thousands of innocent people in droves, but they are totally hostile toward western civilization. They will not stop until we are either all Muslim, or all dead. Forget Al Quadi, they’re soft in comparison, these guys mean business.

As the world’s foremost superpower, we do have a duty to maintain order in the world. As a friend of mine once said “nature abhors a vacuum” Do you really want the likes of communist China, or soviet style Russia to be the world’s new superpower? Do you really think either of these countries will be even close to as fair as Britain and the USA have been to other nations throughout the last two centuries?

Do you really think if we just sit back on our hands that everything will just be alright?

I think not.

We, and we alone can stand up against these tyrants, we and we alone can restore capitalism, free trade and free thought to the world. The American way is one to be proud of.

Here’s to praying that the house and senate are swept with conservative republicans this fall, so that we can finally begin proceedings against our limp wristed, golfer-in-chief, The world will be a lot safer when we finally impeach this anti-colonial, communist traitor from the white house. Barack Obama’s lack of leadership has the world teetering on the verge of a third world war.

Real leadership is needed, and that starts at the grass roots. I am at least thankful for libertarians at that level, helping alter the progressive tendencies the republican party was heading in.

Another issue I am reconsidering is my old stance against Israel. Now, the very creation of Israel after the second world war, much like the creation of Syria and Iraq after the first world war, has caused nothing but problems for the surrounding area for the last few decades. But to say, as I did over a year ago, that Israel is inherently evil, is perhaps naive. Now, the Zionist Illuminati, and other such organizations, those are I believe not healthy to the world, but the Israeli state now exists, for better or for worst, and I do not want to see the killing of innocent women and children. It is not the fault of those born there that the state exists. It is evil however for an organization to launch rockets at peaceful population centers and use women and children as human shields. As the state now exists, Israel does have a right to defend itself. Hamas is an evil terrorist entity. Their emblem includes the communist hammer and sickle. This has made me rethink everything.

As for the general rule that many libertarians are atheist, I do not believe a lack of faith is healthy in society. Lack of faith leads to empty vessels, and after a couple generations of this, they tend to be hungry for new faith, which can be easily steered toward evil. The rise of radical Islam seems to take place right behind the rise of socialism. Socialism is the moral decay of a society, which puts altruism above self interest on the national level. Once this takes foot, it is hard to stop.

I believe in morality, in doing good to others, but also doing well for yourself, and setting a good example.

As for drugs and gay marriage, I do not like the idea of legalizing drugs, but I can see that the drug war has done no good to communities. For gay marriage, how can you support a notion which is generally not accepted by the populace, and damns the very idea of marriage itself?

These are questions I pose not only to my self, but to all libertarians. The fact that a group of people within a country can discuss ideas of freedom in such a way, is a miracle unto itself, but I do not know if all inclusiveness is sustainable.

I pray for the restoration and growth of this great nation and of her people.
