You would have a point except for the fact that that establishment and GOP Party leadership both fail to support (and actively work against) TEA Party members who win GOP primaries (i.e. Angle). Why is it you must support the GOP when the progressive GOP candidate when but it is just fine to back stab the TEA Party candidate when they win? Bottom line - If progressive GOP candidates like Jeb Bush win nomination, conservatives and TEA party will stay home or vote third party. I know I will. because Jeb Bush DOES NOT REPRESENT MY VIEWS. And those of you who say I should vote GOP regardless, too damn bad, I'm voting for the person who represents me.
Had to look twice to see if this was a fund raising pitch by the RNC. Then again I am no longer in their target demographic since I am not an illegal alien who is a member of the US Chamber of Commerce. So no vote for you!

Jeb v. Hillary?

I cannot believe that someone hasn't demanded we vote for Jeb just to prevent Hillary from winning. After all, that is always the argument for the voting for squishy Republicans. Screw that. Vote for the person that you have a reasonable expectation that they will vote and act in a manner consistent with your principles. (D)s and (R)s are becoming virtually the same.

Big money donors don't translate into big piles of votes. If these big money donors manage to ram through a Jeb Bush candidacy, the GOP will hemorrhage voters during the General Election and make the Whigs look like a power house. A pox on the Bushes and anyone who votes for them.

Hand Me That Poll

GOP plan to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory: amnesty. On Wednesday, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) told the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce that amnesty legislation is inevitable. “To me, it’s not a question of ‘if’ we fix our broken immigration laws,” Ryan said at a breakfast event, according to Politico. “It’s really a question of ‘when.’” Ryan reportedly told the audience to "please know that we understand the value of immigration." No amount of gained Hispanic voters will compensate for lost conservative voters if the GOP passes amnesty. I guess Chamber of Commerce dollars mean more than actual votes.
"If the establishment can nominate their guy the Tea Party and libertarians will have no choice but to fall in line behind the big government Bush." Sure we do. We can vote for someone else or stay home. Bush isn't getting my vote, ever.

Is Cruz out of Control?

"Is Cruz out of Control?" The real question should be "Are Congressmen representing their constituents or their donors?" How you answer that will answer the first question.

The Lesson of Dunkirk

Worst Sowell column ever! The biggest difference between Dunkirk and Congress - men were fighting and dieing on the beaches of Dunkirk. No member of Congress risks ANYTHING because they fear they may not be re-elected even though incumbents have an astronomically high re-election rate. You lose 100% of the battles you do not fight. Live to fight another day doesn't apply if you never fight. You cannot retake the Senate and hold the House if you lose the party's base, Conservatives. Yet this is the battle plan of the GOP.
The lesser of two evils is STILL evil. You do not defeat evil by electing a weaker version of it. You cannot call electing the lesser evil winning unless your only interest is winning. Those of you who believe that supporting Democrat ideas (just like McCain and Boehner) is the way to "win" elections are alienating the base of the party. I will not support Republicans who vote like Democrats and I will not vote for them. And those of you who do not agree, too damn bad. The Republican party has to work to earn my vote, it is not granted simply because someone has an (R) after their name.
Politicians believe that their "sacrifice" of sweat, toil, and tears is the equal of the military's sacrifice of blood.
