Here's the Nonsense: Things have been tough for the GOP, but they're leading as best they can. We need to understand what they're up against and trust they're doing what's best for us.
Here's the Horse Sense: The establishment Republicans in the GOP (the majority of Republican politicians in Washington) continue to sell the American voter down the river. Time to wake up and recognize them for what they are.
I don't know about you, but I've lost count of how many times the GOP leadership have stabbed us conservatives in the back. Prior to the 2014 midterms it had become accepted by many that we couldn't expect them to stand up when they didn't control both houses of Congress. But after an overwhelming win in the midterms, with a definitive mandate from the voters to stop what's happening in Washington all we've seen is the GOP leadership thumbing their noses at the voters as they have sided with Obama and the Democrats every time we turn around. Now, they've done it again!
WND is reporting that despite last ditch efforts by Louisiana's Senator David Vitter, 10 Republicans joined 44 Democrats and 2 Independents to approve Loretta Lynch's appointment as Attorney General. The article quotes Sen. Vitter saying that by "confirming Loretta Lynch, the Senate has given President Obama a rubber stamp for his executive actions.
"Whether it's executive amnesty, Hillary Clinton's email cover-up or corruption on Wall Street, Ms. Lynch has made it clear that she will turn a blind eye to public corruption."
The article says that National Review Online has pointed out that while Eric Holder was a dismal attorney general, "there is little indication Lynch would be much better."
It appears the only difference between Holder and Lynch is that while Holder can play the race card, Lynch will be able to play both the race card and the gender card giving her much more politically correct untouchability.
Breitbart also has a new article out stating that "with two minor exceptions, every single vote that has passed the U. S. Senate since the beginning of this Congress in January has passed with at least - usually more than - 93 percent of support from Democrats."
It goes on to quote Democrat Minority Leader Senator Harry Reid as saying:
"While Republicans have done nothing to create jobs and help the middle class, on other topics like passing clean funding for Homeland Security and confirming Loretta Lynch, Senator McConnell has done the right thing by bringing bills and nominations to the floor that Democrats can support."
This is what our government has come down to. A total sellout of the voters by the party that's supposed to be holding the executive branch in check and keeping things in balance.
Did you notice how they waited until the news was filled with a focus on Hillary's donation scandal and then quickly slipped through this vote to approve Lynch? That's how evil people do things. They wait until no one is looking and do things quickly behind their backs.
It's long past time (and possibly too late for it to have any significant impact) for Americans to throw the GOP leadership out. I have said it many times before, but I'll repeat it again. The establishment GOP control the Republican Party and most GOP politicians are establishment, not conservative. Yet the base is overwhelmingly conservative and we sit back and keep letting them spit in our faces.
Voters should have been involved in the primaries before the 2014 midterms, but for the most part were not. The result was that most establishment Republicans won their challenges from conservatives or weren't challenged at all and the establishment ended up being the choice voters had other than Democrats. So, they won handily with the voters thinking they would understand the mandate they were sending.
I have no doubt they understood. They just didn't care. They shunned conservatives, committed themselves to the destruction of the conservative movement, and walked away proud of their new power. And they now have over and over again thumbed their noses at the voters sending the message that they will do what they want and that the voters are just peons who don't know what's best for them.
You could call it stupidity. You could call it fear of being called racist if they stood up to Obama. You could call it blindness to Washington's ways. But none of those make sense when we've seen it happen so many times.
They've been told over and over again by the voters both at the ballot box and through direct contact of emails, phone calls, demonstrations, etc. and they still don't listen. They only continue to help Obama and the Democrats achieve their goals.
What does it mean when someone keeps repeating the same actions ignoring the direction they are being given? The only logical conclusion is that they have evil intentions. They are complicit with the Democrats to change America from a free republic to a marxist society where only the elite will have power and control and the people will be subject to their decisions. Americans will be ruled, not served.
Did you get that? YOU will be RULED.
America was a republic where the politicians were supposed to serve the people. But it has changed. Today it already has many areas where the government tells you how you must live. Soon your choices in any and every area of your life won't be yours to make anymore.
And you can thank the establishment GOP for not doing their Constitutional duty and standing up against the tyranny. They have connived with wily and cunning intentions to keep power away from the American people. They have ignored their oath of office to support and defend the Constitution while scheming with deceitful intentions. And now the American people have lost control of their government.
The result is that what we've seen in recent years not only continues, but continues to get worse.
So, what are you doing to stop it? What are you doing to step up this one last chance you have to save this country?
The clock is not ticking.
A time bomb is ticking and we are down to moments before it goes off.
If we don't defuse it, we will see the final destruction of what's left of our republic.
2016 is about more than a presidential election. It's about saving America. And that can only be done with significant change in the people we have elected to all offices. The establishment Republicans, along with the Democrats, in both Houses of Congress must be replaced. They are the ones who should have been holding the executive branch accountable but have not only allowed Obama to get away with breaking the law over 80 times, but in many cases have helped him do it.
It's time for change folks. If you know anyone who has lived under a repressive totalitarian regime go talk to them and see what it was like because that's where not only you, but your children and grandchildren will be spending the rest of their lives if this isn't stopped. If you don't know anyone with that background, take the time to read what people who've lived through or escaped regimes like that have to say about it. The stories those people will tell are nothing short of horror stories. And that's what is coming to America.
Imagine starving children and adults because the government has created such a bad economy that food is no longer easy to come by.
Imagine disease spreading because the medical help and medicine are not openly and easily available anymore.
Imagine war on our own soil because our borders are so porous that jihadists come into America and terrorize our society just like they do in the Middle East and other parts of the world.
Imagine your loved ones being hauled off in the middle of the night by police who break down your door and drag them off for expressing an opinion different from what the government allows.
Imagine your children turning against you because they've been taught by their schools that they are to trust the government over their parents.
Imagine churches and synagogues being shut down if they don't preach what they are told.
You may not believe it, but that is exactly where we are headed and it's not far away at all unless we do something now to stop it.
The future looks very bleak. Whether it is or not is your choice and not someone else's responsibility.
Imagine facing your children one day and trying to explain to them why you let freedom slip through your fingers to allow everything America once was to be gone.
Imagine facing your grandchildren one day and trying to explain to them what freedom was like (although you'll have to do it in secret because it won't be allowed to be spoken of openly).
That's the future we face if YOU don't do something about it.
UPDATE: And if you doubt that the Republican leadership supports the Democrat goals, Breitbart is now reporting an exclusive story where Sen. Ted Cruz tells them that Loretta Lynch was approved for Attorney General because the Republican leadership wanted it. It just proves my point.
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
