Definition of Insanity

October 18, 2009

Okay, we’ve all heard the saying that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Why does the GOP not get this? The latest Rasmussen report states that if Huckabee and Romney are two of our choices for Republican Party Candidate, Huckabee has a slight advantage over Romney. (Huckabee getting 44% of the vote; Romney 39%).  Worse yet, 81% of Republican voters polled said that they believed this candidate would beat Obama in 2012!  HELLO!  These are the same choices we had last time!  DIDN’T WORK!

I don’t really know how else to explain this to the Republican Party “powers that be”.  We don’t want the same old crap!  Have they not learned anything by watching the Tea Party movement?  We want someone who represents us.  We want a true conservative.  Both socially and fiscally conservative.  We want a return to the Constitution and we want limited government.  We want our lives back – no more bailouts, no more socialism, no more porkulus. 

If Romney and Huckabee couldn’t beat McCain in the primary, and McCain couldn’t beat Obama in the election, what makes anyone think that Romney and Huckabee can beat Obama?  This ain’t fuzzy math, people.  It is simple.  Thank you Mr. Romney and Mr. Huckabee for your service.  Now kindly step aside and make way for someone new, fresh, and truly conservative to lead the party.  Please don’t let the door hit you when you leave.  Do not pass go.  Do not collect 200 dollars. 

There just has to be someone better.  I have to believe it.  This cannot be the best we have to offer.  Once again, I am truly, truly disappointed with the GOP.  And then you got that “Republican” chick up in NY – Oh, that is a whole different post cause she makes me want to scream.  Wolf in sheep’s clothing = Dem running for office as a Republican. 

Please, Grand Ole Party, Please, do NOT put some more of the same old people on the ballot in 2012.  I’m giving you plenty of notice!  Start looking now.


Hat tip: Fairness Doctrine

October 15, 2009

Don’t accuse me of being unfair. I’ve had it with the GOP too. So, I got this nice, little Republican Party questionaire in the mail. I was excited. I really want the GOP to listen to our concerns and start acting like real conservatives. So I filled out all the questions on the important issues – economy, social issues, homeland security, domestic policy, defense.
Then I get to the real reason for the survey. They want my money. Now I am not so naive that this came as a shock. I know that’s what they want, but they aren’t going to get it. There is too much money flowing around Washington, in and out of politician’s hands.  Maybe if their haircuts didn’t cost $400, they could afford to restructure the party.  Maybe if they weren’t “supposedly” paying $12 to tabulate each survey (yes, it actually said that), taxpayers might actually trust them with a contribution.    By the way, please hire me and pay me $12 per survey – please forward my paycheck to my newly purchased horse ranch in Castle Rock.  No, it wasn’t the fact that they asked for money.  It was the fact that they gave me no other option. 

The question read, “Will you join the Republican National Committee by making a contribution today?”  Harmless enough.  Option 1 was “Yes, I support the RNC and am enclosing my most generous contribution of…”.  Option 2 was “Yes,  I support the RNC, but am unable to participate at this time.  However, I have enclosed $12 TO COVER THE COST OF TABULATING MY SURVEY.”  Option 3, the only other option besides a donation, read “No, I favor electing liberal democrats over the next ten years.”

REALLY?  Those are my only options?  Either I give to the RNC or I might as well be voting for Pelosi.  Hmmm…Needless to say, this really burned me up.  I do NOT like to be threatened or belittled.

The GOP is treading on thin ice with me anyway.  I’m talking to you, Olympia Snowe.  No, John McCain, we don’t want you to make over the party in your centrist views.  We want Reagan-type Republicans.  We want God-fearing, abortion-hating, Bible-believing conservatives to lead our party.  And if the same old Romney, Huckabee, McCain type people are on the ballot in 2012, I will be voting for the Constitution Party.
