“In light of last night’s election results in Mississippi, there is one question every conservative should be asking: How much longer can a party survive when its leadership is inexorably against the ethos of its base?” — Daniel Horowitz
“The GOP respects no truth, has no honor, is without any principle or standard of decency.” — Rob Cunningham
“The Republicans have become the party of lobbyists, most of whom were on twitter celebrating their purchase.” — Erick Erickson
“Republicans and democrats, democrats and republicans, what’s the difference? Neither represent the American people or give one big crap about defending individual rights or the Constitution.” — M.D. Creekmore
“I am hurt. A plague a’ both your houses!” — William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
Old George Wallace used to say that there wasn’t a dime’s worth of difference between Republicans and Democrats. Of course, these days, that thin dime’s only worth about two red cents (and I do mean red); and, if you’re one of the “extremists” who believes that our elected officials should actually honor their oaths of office, you won’t even get to put yours in. At least, not if that passel of D.C. porkers known collectively as the Republican Establishment has anything to say about it:
[…] the establishment treachery on the campaign trail in Mississippi is merely a reflection of what they do in Washington … Throughout the primary season, GOP elites have accused the conservative base of helping Democrats by challenging Republicans in primaries. The reality is that we are challenging these people precisely because they work in tandem with Democrats and empower them in growing government. (This Is Treachery)
When you’re waylaid by highwaymen, does it really matter that one of them offers to beat you over the head with a smaller stick?
