Ann Coulter is once again ignoring the reality of the damage they are doing to America as evidenced by her support of RINOs over actual conservatives.
Just as I warned in Feb. 2012 with my post “A Dear Ann Letter” when Coulter backed Mitt Romney over other, more conservative, GOP candidates, she now once again would prefer the conservative masses hold their noses and support what she thinks is “electability” despite the reality that when true conservatives, and their voting cousins the libertarians (including myself), reach the point of disgust with the stench within our own so called ranks, that many become so nauseated with the thought of voting for these false conservatives that they stay home election night, preferring to consume large quantities of sometimes alcohol laced Pepto Bismol.
Ironically, if you read my post “A Dear Ann Letter” you would have seen my prescient warning about her flawed affection for Chris Christie back when the vast majority of the self proclaimed “conservative” public thought Christie was a fellow conservative. Oh how reality stings.
So apparently yesterday Coulter blogged her defense of Mitch McConnell, even after McConnell spoke of Tea Party candidates by saying “I think we are going to crush them everywhere … I don’t think they are going to have a single nominee anywhere in the country.” She did so while going on tv, and possibly in her blog, proclaiming how she loves the Tea Party. Yeah ok.
Once again Ann has traded her credentials, or what might be more appropriately described as “remaining perceived credentials” to prop up the collapsed credibility of one of the sources of the stench.
Either buy Ann and Mitch, or come November grab your Pepto, and maybe some Jack.
Talon’s point today is based on a series of related tweets from earlier today as follows:
” I’ve said it before and will again. Obama is NOT the problem…he’s the symptom.”
“The ignorance of soft tyranny has lead to the awareness of hard tyranny. The GOP has helped make this happen.”
…. and to someone who thinks the solution is to simply vote GOP as if GOP wins have advanced liberty rather than the reality it has also attacked it….
“Sometimes you are better off with the tyrant you recognize rather than the one you don’t recognize.”
For several years now I’ve said that Obama may turn out to be the best thing that has happened to America both spiritually and politically in several generations. How can I such an astounding thing? Because before Obama, our once great nation was not only sliding into the spiritual and social abyss, we were doing so in our sleep. The rise of this developing tyrant has awakened the portion of America that is capable of consciousness. The other portion is of course suffering from a government sugar induced coma and won’t awake until they are dying from their coming real physical hunger.
Obama’s acts have driven the Godly, and many of the once Godly, to their Bibles and their knees. It has been the fulcrum that has wedged them out of their actual, and metaphorical, recliners and motivated them to reestablish or strengthen the faith they will need to stand through the coming storm. It has even awakened some who never gave God much thought but deep inside they knew spiritually there is no hope outside of the the Creator they previously disregarded. This storm will almost assuredly include open persecution of Christians, and to a lessor extent non conformist non-Christians who reject all intrusive government, not just anecdotal cases of persecution but full scale legalized persecution both sanctioned by, and engaged in by all levels of government. I pray this is not true. But every sign tells me otherwise. Let me quickly say here that I am not opposed to government. Our founders were right that it is a necessary evil that is best limited but nevertheless needed. Yet it is most capable of acting honorably when it acts minimally.
Secondarily, as I have already eluded to, it has awakened non-Christians at a political level. People from all walks of life, even some “liberals” who now justifiably fear they will soon lose all remaining social liberties in exchange for a system that takes virtually all they have and returns to them over priced and poorly provided “services.” Services that do not compete with what the free market is capable of. They recall images of empty Soviet market shelves and instinctively know we are walking the same path that led to mass economic deprivation.
Neither of these two awakenings, in my opinion, would have occurred under under John McCain because it was not occurring under George W. Bush. I’m not attacking these men. I am however confidently contending that their big government views intentionally, or unintentionally, have, or would have in the case of McCain, allowed the exponential growth of a government that displaces God with itself. I further contend that had Romney been elected, we likely as a people would have returned to believing this threat was generally over. As such we would have gone back to sleep as the assault on our spiritual heritage and personal liberty would continue unabated, just slower. Not because of Romney per se, but because the structure that allows the assault would only have been tweaked, rather than reformed.
Just a reminder of what has happened over the last 25 plus years of Republicans nominating RINOs
1980 Reagan – Conservative (for the most part) – Won as a Conservative
1984 Reagan – Conservative (for the most part) – Won – Reelected as a Conservative
Reagan was the last President to even come close to being a true Conservative and even he had his failures, ie amnesty, Sandra Day O’Connor, large budgets
And then it began…..
1988 Bush Sr – RINO – Won – Ran on Reagan’s conservative coat tails
1992 Bush Sr – RINO – Lost – Didn’t govern as a conservative
1996 Dole – RINO – Lost – Couldn’t motivate conservatives / libertarians to vote
2000 Bush – RINO – Won – Barely elected as a “conservative”
2004 Bush – RINO – Won – Reelected as a “wartime” President
2008 McCain – RINO – Lost – Couldn’t motivate conservatives / libertarians to vote
2012 Romney – RINO – Lost – Couldn’t motivate conservatives / libertarians to vote

“A growing percentage of America’s shrinking middle class comes from government jobs. When the power to print fiat currency comes to an end so will most of the middle class, leaving an American Caste system with the vast majority among the poor. This my friends is why government is so hot and bothered over acquiring your firearms.” – Talon
