I believe the 2012 debacle really upset AWD, with comparatively limited postings since then. His considered assessment of the situation has now appeared: FOR AMERICA TO SUCCEED, THE REPUBLICAN PARTY MUST BE DESTROYED
This is the fruit of careful, serious thought by a sincere Patriot. It should (but won’t) be considered with close attention by those Inside-the-Beltway GOP parasites who desire longevity.
Who does the Republican establishment view as it’s biggest threat? The socialist Democrats hell-bent on destroying America? A foreign power? No, the Republican establishment views the Tea Party as their enemy number one. It should. The Tea Party movement is the traditional, conservative wing of what’s left of the Republican Party. Which is why the movement is despised by the Repub elites. The only group that hates the Tea Party movement worse than the mainstream propaganda media or the Democrats is the wussypants Republican Party. The GOP establishment doesn’t want change in Washington. It wants the status quo. With them in power, of course.
On the immigration issue AWD says
After losing the 2012 election huge, what is the most pressing issue for the Republican establishment? Passing some form of amnesty that will give voting rights to millions of illegal aliens who will immediately vote for every Democrat on the ballot. Forever! But again, these are the geniuses that allow liberal propagandists like Candy Crowley and Wolf Blitzer to moderate presidential debates. The Republican elite is a special kind of stupid.
I have to disagree with this. The Republican elite is a special type of greedy. AWD touches on this earlier in his essay
Rove and his Republican establishment ilk are not interested in doing what’s in the best interest for America. They are interested in power and money. And that’s it! Sustaining the status quo means business as usual for them and millions in their evil pockets.
This is the key problem facing the American Nation in 2014.
