Same song, same jukebox.

Conservatives are rebelling, because the Republican Party leaders continue to tell us that acheiving the majority through moderation is the most important goal we should have.

Newt Gingrich is using this as his reason for endorsing the liberal Republican (RINO) Scozzafazo in New York. Yes, a Majority is important. What is more important Newt is the principals that the Reagan Republican party once stood for. Lower taxes, less Government, oh yes, more individual liberty.

So let's take a look at some of the great conservative accomplishments that the Moderate managed Republican party has had shall we?

Bankruptcy reform. The lie here was if we reformed the system, credit card rates would fall. Have they fallen? No. What we did was make a system where companies could wipe debt out, but individuals couldn't. That seperate but equal problem has yet to work out.

The PATRIOT ACT which trampled the 4th, 5th, and 6th Amendments. What a victory. Yes, Democrats voted for it too. However, no Conservative should ever have proposed it, nor have voted for it.

I could go on and on. Look at the history in this blog. I have posted often about my disgust with the Republicans.

The question is what are the Republicans going to stand for? Socialism just like the Democrats, but only slower? That's not a principal I can get behind. Nor is it a principal that anyone should get behind.

The Democrats are running towards pure Socialism as fast as they can, while the Republican Moderates, those whom people like me call RINO's, suggest we can get there better jogging. I don't want to get there at all. Not running, nor jogging. I want to head in the other direction. Smaller Government, less Government intrusion, and more personal liberty.

So the Republican party is once again suggesting that we play along, and support the Moderates, and really understand that we can't do anything unless we have the majority. What are we going to do? Slow the sprint to socialism to a jog?

This is why the Repubicans are out of power. They campaign as sort of Conservatives, populist conservatives, and rule as Democrat Lite. I don't want Democrat/Socialist principals. I want Conservative ideals and principals. So no, I won't contribute to the national parties or committee's. The national party is full of loonies who think that Democrat Lite is the way to win.

We tried that, we had John McCain, the Maverick, the loved by the Liberals, so long as he's beating up on Conservative Republicans. He was the RINO's dream candidate. He believed in everything that Obama does, just not so stridently. He was a Democrat Lite candidate, and was soundly trounced.

So what have the Republicans learned? Nothing. Jack Squat to quote the SNL joke. The candidates that did well, ran as conservatives. The candidates who ran as Moderates didn't do so well. So we've learned, we need more moderate candidates.

The Democrats are going to get their wish, the Republicans are going to self destruct. While trying to get the NY Times and MSNBC to like them, they're going to keep the Voters pissed at them.

You think some of them would have learned that the Moderate approach is a failure every time it's tried.

The grand old party is over.
