Once again we’re being lied to. The mainstream media wants us to believe that only “moderation, cooperation and compromise” can save the GOP…and America. This is one of the greatest lies ever told.
First of all, moderation won’t save the GOP. Nothing could be further from the truth. The fact is the GOP has had a long list of moderate “saviors:”
Gerald Ford- LOSER
Bob Dole- LOSER
George H.W. Bush- LOSER (to Bill Clinton)
John McCain- LOSER
Mitt Romney- LOSER
So much for “moderation” winning elections for the GOP. The reality is the Republican Party has had one true conservative in modern history. His name was Ronald Reagan. I was there when my liberal friends at Columbia University called Reagan “loony” “nutty” “extreme” “radical right wing nutcase” and “out of touch with average Americans.” Well that “radical right wing nutcase” won in two massive Presidential landslides. Perhaps the media wants us to forget that.
But wait, there’s more proof that this idea of “moderation” is a stone cold failure. The GOP ran nothing but “moderates” for Congress throughout the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, and even 80’s. The result was a permanent Democratic majority in Congress from 1954 through 1994. Moderation resulted in 40 years of unchallenged domination for Democrats.
The facts are in: When Republicans are nothing more than slightly more moderate big government proponents and “Democrat-lite”…THEY LOSE.
Then of course there’s the most powerful proof of all- the 2010 election. Led by the energy and passion of the Tea Party, Republicans achieved the most smashing victory in political history. They not only won Congress in the biggest landslide since 1938, and took a majority of Governorships, but also won the most state legislature seats since 1928. The media seems to have overlooked or forgotten about this, even though it only happened three short years ago.
After that record-setting Tea Party victory…with polls showing the Tea Party more popular (by far) than the actual Republican Party itself, politicians of both parties in D.C. panicked. They couldn’t allow the country to be dominated by this idea of smaller government. Everyone in DC gets rich off big government. They couldn’t afford to let the gravy train slow down.
