Beware of Those Advising GOP To Unilaterally Disarm

We should not and must not compromise our conservative principles, not on abortion, not on immigration, not gay marriage...We have a moral imperative to hold the line of truth and not compromise on every point of our conservatism. It is true that we are steadily declining into statism and tyranny by the few. But that's the point. They are the few. We need to believe in and then govern on first principles (limited government, fiscal restraint). That means un-electing every Rhino statist. We can do it if all of us act and pray. There's a reservoir of aid from God, if we just ask for it.

When good compromises with evil, evil wins. If Republicans compromise any more with Democrats, what will be left of the U.S.?

No one is compromising with anybody. That is the problem.

Instead of making tough choices, Congress is making no choices. Obama is useless, Pelosi is useless, Boehner is useless, Reid is useless, McConnell is useless. I have followed government pretty closely for 45 years, but I've lost interest because Congress is doing nothing and Obama now wants to run the country with nothing but executive orders. It's a disgrace and both parties are at fault.

Truth be known, God-loving so-called Conservatives have NEVER taken it upon themselves to kick the political snot out of the commie atheist influence and the commiecrat party.

Most of the time they have proved to be weakling collaborators all too eager to compromise when under pressure. Now look at the shape we're in.

And even much worse can be said about the Republican party.

It is not the God-fearing Conservative who is the weakling collaborator but the Rhino who cares more about keeping his power as a Congressman or Senator or media consultant than fighting for our Constitution and the best interests of his nation.

The God-loving Conservatives are the ONLY fighting coalition I know who can stand and fight and win. The Republican Party are Statists Light, part of the elite who are sliding into comfortable statism.

Hey, don't get me wrong. I'm on your side, BUT...

Over the past 40 years, just what kick-a$$ commie-killing events have the conservatives presided over? Name the legislation that has put the athiest scumbags a-realing and stupefied at their show of power?

I first voted for Ronald Reagan. I love the man, but he was, to some extent, a collaborator and screwed up several times. He had the chance to really screw the dems in his 2nd term, but didn't. Too often he danced to the democrat tune.

Conservatives have been dancing to that tune ever since.

The answer is simple. We have only a handful of conservatives in Congress; the rest are Republicans willing only to compromise and play nice with the Dems. Bush was a globalist from the start and never a conservative.

The Tea Party and Freedom Works have done lot a lot in getting conservatives elected. They are just two successful organizations I would call God-loving Conservatives who are fighting and succeeding. We have get more real conservatives elected. They are working full time doing that. What are you doing? I started a blog. And I set time aside every day to pray, and pray hard, with belief in my heart that God will help us deliver America as one nation under God.
Isn't it ironic that Republicans keep receiving advice to be more conciliatory and work with President Obama while President Obama not only is receiving the opposite advice but fully intends to be even more divisive in his second term?

On "Meet the Press" last week, former Secretary of State Colin Powell said: "There's also a dark vein of intolerance in some parts of the (Republican) party. What do I mean by that? What I mean by that is they still sort of look down on minorities."

That is outrageously false, but lest you think hypersensitivity to race is all that's bothering Powell, he...
