Joe Miller has some harsh words for the GOP establishment and even Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.
Very well said. I’m in a back-and-forth debate with a fellow I’ve known for a few years from church. Ken uses the same argument, that the Republicans are “closed tent”. Here’s a excerpt from earlier today:
[Ken] This just in (sorta), Obama Wins Florida — the I-4 Corridor and Broward/Dade County. A high percentage of these folks are EMPLOYED professionals (I.e. NOT TAKERS). So keep “smoking your own exaust” with these food stamp and “my values are superior” comments…and keep LOSING by being more exclusive than inclusive. Its funny, the person your party claims most influential to its platform (Christ) modeled “being inclusive through love” — just the opposite of what the composite of those 332 Electoral College votes witness from factions of the GOP. Keep up the great work…and keep blaming everyone but the real culprit.
So Ken, you are saying that the Republican presidential candidate lost the election because he didn’t promise the electorate enough goodies and stuff if they voted for him? That’s the talk of a big government person that doesn’t think those targeted voters have it within themselves to prosper on their own. Somewhat arrogant in my opinion. Or, you don’t understand how many freedoms we now have to succeed and that Americans have the liberties and God-given rights to become successful if that is their goal. Possibly, you, as Mr. Obama appears to be, are ignorant of what American free market capitalism is comprised of.
As for Florida, I suppose human “free will” trumped “Christian moral compass” this go-round. I’ll put off any FL vacations for a few years to demonstrate my displeasure with the majority down there, and maybe the minority will have speaks with their neighbors about the perils of the nanny state. But, if you think that Republicans are willing to “WIN” elections buy joining the EBT card promoters, you are also smoking something. At that point, it’ll become a sales campaign among the two prettiest prostitutes for the affections of the masses. And like the continual Coke-Pepsi war, you’ll always have loyalists, but you may go broke trying to convince the non–committed buyers that your sweetened water is going to make them happier than the other guy’s sweetened water. As for the Republicans, they’ll have to abandon much of their ideology in order to compete in this bordello.
This was a very close popular vote election, so I’m hopeful, unlike Dr. Ron Paul, that we’re salvageable as a nation. Thing is, generally speaking, overall, with a few exceptions, the Republican party candidates conducted campaigns that were too gentle on their opponents, and people “like” winners with or without defined convictions it seems. Maybe from now on, we can take the gloves off and expose the liberal Democrats for who they are and for what they’ve done to this country’s moral conscience. Maybe we can start competing against the main stream media and expose their leftist agenda. The liberals have been at this campaign of my nation’s moral destruction for many decades, and it will take many years to get us back to being a nation founded upon Judeo-Christian principles. Good Lord willing, we will succeed.
But wait! There’s more! More!?! Yes!…
[me] I suppose if you think that Latinos and women can only get by in life because big government lets them, then the sky’s the limit regarding government intrusion and counter-productive wealth distribution. Becoming dependent upon an unreliable and inefficient source is a recipe for becoming less self-reliant and more disenchanted with your benevolent providers. Anyone see the rioting in Greece today? Kind of loud.
[Ken} Let's see. . . I said "reach out" to (among other's) Latino's and Women. . . yet you took a flying leap and paraphrased my comment to read "they can only get by in life because of big government". Then proceeded to build a case on something I never said or implied. What's up with that? Are we discussing, or trying to win a debate?
[me] Currently, there are more elected Republican Latinos than democrat Latinos, so there must be another cause for them to gravitate toward the party of foodstamps and safety net that has morphed into a hammock. We are Republicans because we see the value in each and every individual. We don’t see government’s role as being the nanny so that no one has to get their hands dirty or work hard to provide for their family. Republicans don’t promote dependency on taxpayer funded assistance. If we did, then there’d be little difference between us and the democrats. It has gotten to the point where a majority of the Latinos that voted for Obama are voting for a living. America is bankrupted and Americans will soon have to pay back what has been borrowed. Each member of your family’s prorata share of the debt is $51,000. You may not care, but my problem is that the same prorata share belongs to every member of my family too. It’s going to cause chaos in this country very soon. Innocent people will get hurt.
“Reaching out” to democrats means being Santa Clause to voting blocks in order to buy their votes. Republicans are guilty of the same thing, but we haven’t redistributed enough wealth to gain a lead in the Santa business. I hope we never do because giving people a fish isn’t as beneficial as teaching people to fish. Furthermore, I can’t really determine how Latinos have benefitted from four years of Obama’s leadership. Maybe they come to this country and they know the word “democracy”, so they just assume that the democrat party is democratic and the Republican party is less so. For sure the democrat party has been effective in demonizing the Republican party and it’s all been a pack of lies.”
This conversation between me and Ken stemmed from a FB post I made….From an outsider looking in….http://www.sunnewsnetwork.ca/sunnews/straighttalk/archives/2012/11/20121106-233226.html
