The Horse Sense Blog compares the nonsense in today's news with good ol' fashioned horse sense


“…I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.… It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.” - Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775


"The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell

House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy Declares War On Conservatives


Here's the Nonsense:  The leadership in the GOP understands that it's important to keep things moving forward by passing legislation, whether or not they have a majority of Republicans agreeing with them.  Better to vote with Democrats than to be bogged down by conservatives.

Here's the Horse Sense:  The GOP leadership has proven they aren't conservative and don't care what the voters think.  House leadership has now said they are willing to align with Democrats against the conservatives in the House so they can keep legislation moving to the Senate, even though voters are in strong disagreement with them.

House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy was reported by Breitbart to have said:  “It is better if the House does their work,” said McCarthy. “We should be sending bills to the Senate.”  In other words, they don't care what we think, they just want power and control.  McCarthy shows that he, Boehner, Cantor and those who side with them are the enemy of the American people by essentially declaring war on conservatives.  It has never been more important for the American voters to be involved and working hard to defeat and replace these people in 2014.

If you care about America.  If you care about your future.  And even more, if you care about the future of your children and grandchildren, then you must get involved right now to keep GOP leadership under pressure to move to the right.  People like this need to be voted out of office and replaced with people who want to save our nation.  

The price we are paying with all the damage that's been done just keeps getting higher because of the actions of people like these.  As the old saying goes, with friends like this, who needs enemies?  

Put pressure on your elected representatives and let them know that Washington needs more people like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Mike Lee and fewer like these buffoons.  This is our last chance to stop this madness.  These people don't care about you or your future.  All they want is power.  So voters need to show them that the real power is in the voters hands at the ballot box.

UPDATE:  It seems that the pressure has come to bear on the GOP leadership as a result of Breitbart's article and now they have reached out to Breitbart to clarify their stand saying they want a GOP majority on these issues.  I suspect what that really means is that people reacted and the leadership's phone lines melted causing the leaders to back off their stand.  While I'm glad they backed off, the fact is that they still need to be replaced.  Anyone who doesn't see it isn't paying attention.
