Conservatives Must Be Prepared to Destroy the Party in 2016 in Order to Win Tomorrow

The Republican Party has gone the way of the Whigs.

Last December, Jeb Bush declared what true conservatives realize will transpire come the Republican National Convention in 2016 — that the party must reject its conservative principles and lose the primary if it is to win the general election. But in light of far more damning actions by the party establishment, the actions of the heir apparent to the Bush-owned GOP was unfortunately benign.

The sad truth, so incontrovertible, is the Republican Party of Ronald Reagan is so no longer. Furthermore, the long state of denial can no longer continue. The GOP now publicly supports the Democratic Party, and vice versa. Need I remind anyone Ted Cruz lashed out at Mitch McConnell for lying on the Export/Import Bank?

The party was placed on life support during the infamous recount in South Florida of 2000. In 2005 when Karl Rove intentionally kept mum before the media regarding the location of weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) in Iraq, it flatlined and needed jumped off. But in 2007 when the financial markets collapsed due to the Clinton-era policy of subprime mortgages in collaboration with Alan Greenspan, the demented elephant was suddenly a white one.

It is no longer good for scavenging its ivory. The GOP poached itself.

Barack Obama may have secretly negotiated the Trans Pacific Partnership for several years, but the congressional GOP signed over the American people’s sovereignty. When the Tea Party attempted a coups d’etat the first day of the new Congress early January, the establishment powers-that-be led by Speaker John Boehner threatened those less long in the tooth should they vote against him.

Worse still is the rising public entente between the neoconservative establishment and liberals among the Democrats. Left in the void are the Tea Party conservatives and hard socialists like Bernie Sanders with no particular place to go in their respective parties. In fact Rep. Bill Paschall (D-NJ) was quoted prior to the ill-fated vote for House Speaker in The Hill saying “I’d probably vote for Boehner [because] who the hell is going to replace him? [Ted] Yoho?”

And yet, that was not the New Jersey Congressman’s most inflammatory comment. “In terms of the institution, I would rather have John Boehner as the Speaker than some of these characters who came here thinking that they’re going to change the world.” Whether Washington knows Right from wrong, neither one is. The least principled of the duopoly just took a hard turn toward a dead end.

Karl Rove declared last fall in California it would be better to run neoconservative Neel Kashkari as the GOP nominee for governor and lose to the eternal Moonbeam (Jerry Brown) than win with the Tea Party’s Tim Donnelly. And Mr. Rove got his wish despite far-outspending Brown’s campaign for Kashkari. He now supports a potential repeal of the Second Amendment in the wake of the Charleston shootings.

Money can’t buy my love for the likely nominee, Jeb Bush. It is my belief Bush’s “nomination” was decided shortly after Mitt Romney lost to Obama three years ago. The RNC almost never focuses on Democrats these days because they are too busy failing miserably to destroy Donald Trump. And while it is certain Trump will not be permitted the party’s nomination, any Tea Party candidate facing Bush will be throttled, particularly Ted Cruz, if the race grows too close. As a result, conservatives must be prepared to destroy the party if they intend to resurrect it in their image, for both the RNC and Democrats are persecuting them through the IRS to ensure business continues to be conducted as usual. After all, would it matter if a neoconservative lost to a Democrat with a similar platform as a result of 60 percent of registered Republicans refusing to vote because of Jeb Bush?
