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

They're On The Ropes And Fighting Back Hard

Here's the Nonsense:  The last Horse Sense Blog post was ridiculous. The left has the conservatives knocked down and almost out.  

Here's the Horse Sense:  People disagreed with what I wrote, but the fact is that there continues to be proof that conservatives are in a position to win big and we need to keep on fighting to make it so.


Last week I wrote that we're winning and it's proven by how upset the Democrats and establishment Republicans have become.  Some people were skeptical saying that I was wrong and that the conservative movement was failing.  Once again I'll say that your opponent fights hardest when they know they're losing.  And the Democrats and establishment Republicans (who are essentially the same) are fighting with everything they've got.  More proof is showing up all the time.

Breitbart reported that Harry Reid, in an interview with Rachel Maddow, said of Ted Cruz, “If I didn’t care so much about our country, I would hope he would get the Republican nomination for president, because that would mean the end of the Republican Party."  Now in case you didn't pay attention during the 2012 elections, Democrats are the first ones to tell us who we should and shouldn't be running against them.  In 2012 they kept saying that the worst thing for them would be for Mitt Romney to be the Republican candidate.  Stupid as they are, the Republican establishment selected Romney as the candidate and, as usual with their candidates (think Dole, McCain, etc.), they lost the presidential election.  I guess Forrest Gump must have been talking of them when he said "Stupid is as stupid does."  If Harry Reid is making statements like that about conservatives like Ted Cruz, then we should know that conservatives are a real threat to the Democrats and their power. 

The establishment GOP also are getting in on the fight against conservatives.  A National Journal article reports of the establishment Republicans, "Tactics being discussed among Republican strategists, donors, and party leaders include running attack ads against tea-party candidates for Congress; overthrowing Ron Paul's libertarian acolytes dominating the Iowa and Minnesota state parties; promoting open primaries over nominating conventions, which can produce Republican hard-liners such as Virginia gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli and shutdown-instigator Mike Lee of Utah; and countering political juggernauts Heritage Action, the Club for Growth, and FreedomWorks that target Republican incumbents who have consorted with Democrats."

If you don't understand why the Democrats and establishment Republicans are both attacking conservatives, you are missing the point that they are one in the same.  The fact that the establishment GOP would spend more time and effort attacking conservatives than fighting Democrats should be proof enough.  While they may have cast the right votes on some issues, the real truth shows up when you look at what they're doing behind the scenes to damage conservatives and embrace their buddies in the Democrat party across the aisle.  

The fact is that this is all part of the plan the progressives have been working on for years.  In researching my upcoming book America's Twilight:  How We Can Triumph Over The Disintegration Of The World's Greatest Nation, I have found proof of the idea that the two parties need to become one for the progressives to succeed.  There has been a concerted effort to make the two parties the same.  We see proof of it from Bill Clinton's mentor Carrol Quigley, when he wrote in his book, Tragedy and Hope:

"The chief problem of American political life...has been how to make the two Congressional parties more national and international. The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can “throw the rascals out” at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy."

It's all a guise being perpetrated on the American public so that they can maintain their power.  And nothing is a greater threat to their power than the conservative movement and informed voters.  

They're upset and fighting hard because the conservatives are having an impact.  It's time to fight harder than we ever have.  A major impact in the upcoming 2014 midterm elections can move Congress back to citizen control.  The outcome of 2014 can be the turning point for America.  They're on the ropes, don't let up now!
