“We’ve taken firm and principled stands against their big government plans throughout this Congress, and we’ve got, if the American people will send them, we’ve got a cavalry of men and women headed to Washington, D.C. that are going to stand with us.”
Mike Pence chairman of the House Republican Conference
Around the country, we are seeing more and more true Conservatives coming out of the woodworks, not afraid to voice their opinions about what needs to be done, and how they intend to get it done. Take Mike Pence of Indiana for instance. Republicans aren’t interested in Compromising with President Obama. Pence said his party wouldn’t compromise on issues like spending or healthcare reform, two of the weightiest items on Congress’s agenda next year, when the Republicans could control one or both chambers.
This, from one of the leaders of the Republican party sets my mind a little at ease, after last week when Obama said that he would just have to get the Republicans to work with him, if they won the majority in the House, and then I started hearing all over about the “elite” of the GOP saying that they would compromise. That was when I posted here that only losers compromise. So it is good to hear Pence say that.
“Look, there will be no compromise on stopping runaway spending, deficits and debt. There will be no compromise on repealing Obamacare. There will be no compromise on stopping Democrats from growing government and raising taxes,” Pence told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt Thursday evening. “And if I haven’t been clear enough yet, let me say again: No compromise.”
Now it is like I have said before. I like Mike Pence. Him and others like him in the GOP who are true conservatives are the future of this country, not the ones who claim to be Republicans but will vote with the democrats when they want. You know, the RINO’s? John McCain and others. What we need to do, is get the true Conservatives into office, so that WE THE PEOPLE will be listened too, and not ignored like the Obama administration is doing.
But the rumor seemed to persist over the last 4 or 5 days, some of it coming from the blogosphere, where some like RS REDSTATE said that, “I have told you this before and I will tell you this again. Unless you elect Pat Toomey, Marco Rubio, Ken Buck, Ron Johnson, Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Sharron Angle, and Joe Miller, we will never see Obamacare repealed.” Well, I believe in what Representative Mike Pence said. That they will not accept compromise on this. And they shouldn’t. But RS REDSTATE wasn’t the only one that went this direction. They are looking at this from the perspective of “politics as usual” in Washington when the election is over and new leadership is in play. But I have a different take on this one, from my years of watching what has been going on in Washington.
If the new leadership coming in was traditional politicians, like it always has been, you know, career politicians, then I would agree that it would probably be “politics as usual” coming into Washington. But a lot of the new faces we are seeing are from the Tea Party and from the Grassroots of the nation. People who still believe in and will fight for the constitution of the United States, and for the United States herself.
I have watched over the last quarter century or more, how the politicians have taken bigger and bigger steps in taking our freedoms away in the name of doing something for someone or something and getting away with it. I have watched as they have gotten bolder and bolder with their agenda’s till we got what we have today. A leadership in Washington who does not care what we the people want, or what the Constitution says they can do.
The people would elect new politicians with each election not really checking into what these candidates really stood for, and then find themselves getting screwed in the process by the people they elected. But this time is different. This time the electorate is awake. This time we have awakened to the dangers of what the politicians in Washington and around the country are doing. We see, probably, for the first time, that our future, our children’ future, have no chance of doing good as we have had it, and that bothers us. We see runaway spending in Washington making the National debt bigger and bigger and the politicians in Washington almost annually make the debt ceiling higher to accommodate the spending they want to do. We need to get these career politicians out, and put America back on track and back to work. It also bothers me that about 46% of the people still think the Democrats are doing a good job, when it is this leadership that is destroying what this country stands for.
We have had people in Washington before that have warned us of this. Ronald Reagan, almost 40 years ago, told us that runaway spending was hurting this nation. We listened to him, and reined in the spending. But since have let the politicians in Washington go back to business as usual when Reagan left office. We never looked to the future and saw it bleak. We are now! And we do not like what we see coming.
America is no longer seen as the great shining beacon on the hill that Reagan saw. America is not seen as the great nation anymore that Reagan saw, and like many of us grew up seeing. Americans no longer hear their leadership talking about how great America is. Heck, the younger generation sees it better than some of the people do, because they are hearing from Conservative talk and the internet, which is a big part of their world, that America’s future is bleak, and that they will be the first generation to not have it better than their parents, if we stay on this path of self destruction.
The warnings are out there, and the people are watching. They see the bow of the ship called America listing and going down. And, to Barack Obama and the rest of you in Washington who are doing this to us, we have your numbers. We will remember in November, and the Novembers to come. YOUR DAYS ARE NUMBERED! The electorate is coming, and so are the NEW BREED of politicians who have not been career politicians. Mike Pence is right. Sarah Palin is right. Chris Christie is right. Darrell Issa is right. America is looking at a new path. A path back to greatness and glory. America is the price we will pay, if we don’t change the path Obama and company are leading us on. Vote for America this time, and every time. Vote out the Democrats and Republicans who do not feel this country is great.
I know I am going to. And I have done my homework on this. Have YOU?
