Tea Party’s plan is coming together
There is reason for conservatives to be optimistic about this fall’s elections. Let’s start with the Hoosier State - Indiana. Last week, Richard Lugar, the RINO Republican went down in defeat at the hands of State Treasurer Richard Mourdock. Mourdock was supported by the National Rifle Association, the Tea Party, and the conservative Club for Growth.
Lugar is a soft spoken little man who held ambitions of one day becoming President, but for a host of reasons, his light never shined too brightly outside of Indiana. Perhaps it was his practice, his mode of operation, which dulled his appeal. If one didn’t know that he belonged to the Republican Party, it may be difficult to distinguish him from a liberal Democrat.
He made his reputation on “foreign policy” prompting some Senators to call him the “wise man of the Senate.” He liked this. It appealed to his ego. The more the Democrats stroked his ego, the more he crossed the isle to vote for irresponsible spending and finally, voting with the Democrats on Mr. Obama’s last two Supreme Court justices, both as far left as one can get.
Once Lugar was elected to the Senate in 1976, he apparently moved out of Indiana and only returned to campaign. He could not even tell a reporter the address printed on his driver’s license.
Despite outspending Richard Mourdock by a 10 to 1 margin, Mourdock won the Republican primary by a landslide garnering over 60 percent of the vote.
Hoosiers woke up. They see what the Democrats and RINO Republicans have done to this country. We are in the longest recession in our history, and many of our liberal representatives see no reason to change course. If they suggest a change, it is always in the wrong direction. Lugar, for example, supports a Treaty that would give royalty payments to the United Nations for oil discovered in our coastal waters. This, of course, is insanity. We cannot afford to elect people to represent us who want to give our resources away, and this, also, includes our technology. We need people who will stand up for American principles and tell the United Nations that if there ever is a One World Government, the capitol will be Washington, D.C. The world will be governed by free people who have the right of self-determination, and that free-market capitalism will be the economic system by which we all operate. Otherwise, we will be ruled by thugs and strongmen who have no concept of human dignity, human worth, or human potential. Of all the deranged geopolitical proposals ever offered by man, one world government seems to me to be the most unworkable and dangerous. No thinking person should ever give serious thought to this nefarious proposal. In fact, the United Nations should be abandoned and cast from our shores immediately.
We still have some RINO’s in the Republican Party, and Lugar’s defeat may send a message. If you can’t support conservative ideals and the Constitution of the United States, then maybe you should switch your party membership to the party that advocates for one world government, socialism, high unemployment, falling wages, looming national bankruptcy, confiscation of national resources, redistribution of wealth, and anarchy. That would be the Democrat Party.
It is clear that Mr. Obama is struggling. Americans have had about as much socialism as they can stand. The “wizards of smart” say that this election will be close, that Romney still has a ways to go to defeat Obama. I hear what these people are saying, but I am not sure at this point that I believe them. Remember back when Little Jimmy Carter was leading Ronald Reagan in the polls one month before the election? Romney on the other hand is seven months out and is already gathering momentum toward the finish line. Does the word “optimistic” come to mind?
At this point, I am not predicting a landslide for the Republican Party, but believe me, things are beginning to come together. If we could get rid of Susan Collins and Olympia Snow, RINO’s from Maine, and you can throw in John McCain and Lindsey Graham, then we might be on our way to getting the country back on track.
I think this may be the Tea Party’s plan, and I for one love it when a plan comes together.
