“John Boehner has been nothing short of an orange traffic cone under Obama’s agenda bus tires. He needs to be replaced by the constitutionalist Tom McClintock.” – Talon

“I was quite pleased today to read from the office of Senator Ted Cruz what I have been saying for years, that “the right to life is foundational to all other rights.” As Sen. Cruz understands, and is willing to fight against, once we are willing to kill people before they are born, liberty no longer exists.” – Talon
Another great post from U.S. House Rep Tom McClintock: Seven Steps to Restore Prosperity. I wish he had also addressed mining but well worth the read
[Introductory Note: Whatever the activity involved, sound strategic thinking requires a clear view of the overall objective to be achieved, one that starts by taking account of the context and circumstances of action, including especially the nature of the obstacles that may be part of that account at any given time. The obstacles include, of course, those posed by “the enemy”, even when that word does not literally refer to one’s opponent in time of war. Making the objective the conditional premise of thought, we then proceed to lay out the actions required to achieve it, first taking stock of the relative distribution of means suitable for attaining, or thwarting the attainment, of the objective. Finally we think through and lay out the structure or plan of action in all its dimensions (the physical dimensions of time, space and available physical energy, including human resources in their purely material physical aspect; and the human dimension of morale, i.e., conscience and spiritedness.) In light of these requirements this proposal for action by people determined to restore the politics of representation beginning with the 2012 election (hereafter referred to as “true republicans”) will be presented in three parts:
I. The context and circumstances of action, detailing the present crisis of representative government in the United States;
II. The means of action, (beginning with a description of the strategic objective of electoral action by true republicans in the 2012 general election);
III. The plan of action]
The Crisis of Representation
During the general election in 2008 the GOP’s sitting President responded to the financial equivalent of Pearl Harbor by openly surrendering to socialism. Then the GOP elitists’ carefully engineered nominee for President abandoned and disheartened the voters the Party is supposed to represent when he contemptuously refused to voice their opposition to that surrender. When John McCain refused to represent the large majority of Americans who rejected G. W. Bush’s TARP bank bailout, he effectively threw the election to Obama. The GOP and the Democrats are supposed to be opposing teams. But, in fact the same elitist conglomerate owns them both. The GOP quarterback’s intentionally thrown interception pass made this obvious to anyone willing to see.
So has behavior of the GOP’s leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives since the 2008 result. On issues of constitutional moral principle; on budget matters; and even on issues like border security, illegal immigration and education they have stubbornly refused to represent the priorities of the Tea Party constituency whose vote restored the House of Representatives to GOP control. Worse still they have positively aided and abetted the Obama faction’s contemptuous subversion of the U.S. Constitution. Moreover, in many place GOP leaders at the state level have made little or no effort to hide their determination to thwart and excise Tea Party influence, up to and including efforts to redraw election districts to defeat Tea Party incumbents.
Obviously, the coaching staffs of both the so-called major political parties answer to owners who made or enhanced their fortunes by betting on the political games; who hedge their bets by fixing the games; and who have been paying themselves off by raping the public income, and destroying the good faith and credit of the American people. So despite the people’s reaction against them, their stranglehold has gotten far more explicit and deadly under Obama, largely because the GOP’s theatrically feigned reluctance is just that: a thoroughly scripted, lavishly staged, badly acted performance.
Obama and his cohorts pursue left wing socialist (communist) goals with right wing socialist (Nazi/Fascist) tactics. His good sounding prologue won them some rhetorical applause before the curtain went up. But by now their hardline socialist predilections have become undeniably evident. As I and others like me predicted, many Americans have recoiled from their crudely aggressive push to socialism. Like people poisoned with bad fish, they are nauseated. Their nausea urgently impels them to find the appropriate facility for emptying their collective political stomach, before the fishy meal puts them out of their misery. If the GOP were anything like the conservative alternative it pretends to be, its leaders would have worked to make sure the November election provided people with the a good, clean rest stop with facilities suitable for the purpose. They would also have taken pains to reassure people that the GOP’s food preparation process includes none of the fishy stuff that has so painfully disagreed with them.

It’s now clear that, as expected, in November’s Presidential election the elite faction’s sham party system will offer American voters the choice between a Democrat lying order to force anti-American socialism on the nation and a Republican lying in order to hide the role he proudly played in imposing anti-American socialism in Massachusetts. This means that voters will have no choice in November if they wish to reject socialism and restore justly limited Constitutional government, framed in light of the God acknowledging principles of the Declaration of Independence. This week I will be sharing some ideas about the election strategy the Constitution allows for people truly determined to defeat the elite faction’s destruction of America’s liberty. In February I posted an article at WND.com which serves as a good introduction to these ideas. With that in mind, I post it here in its entirety.]
If people are obliged to support one person who doesn’t represent them in order to stop another who also doesn’t represent them, they end up with a government that doesn’t represent them. The American Founders rightly identified representation as the defining feature of our republic (see, for example, James Madison in Federalist N. 10, “a republic by which I mean a government in which the scheme of representation takes place. …”) Now, thanks to the “choice of evils” crowd, we are being skillfully maneuvered into a voting mentality that effectively destroys it. (“In Good Conscience”)
The elitist faction that engineered Barack Obama’s occupation of the White House is clearly determined to overthrow government of, by and for the people founded upon the God-acknowledging principles of America’s Declaration of Independence and established by the Constitution of the United States. Though, at the very least, a large plurality of Americans oppose the elitists’ moral and economic deconstruction of liberty, the results of Florida’s just completed GOP primary vote suggest that, as in 2008, the sham electoral process of the twin-party system will offer them no more than a Machiavellian “choice of evils” in the 2012 general election. They can have Mitt Romney, the proven crypto-socialist former governor of the ailing socialist Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Or they can rely on Newt Gingrich, who frothed with enthusiasm for Alvin Toffler’s literally elitist “Politics of the Third Wave”. Among other things:
Ted Cruz has a proven track record of defending liberty. Let’s send him to the Senate to continue the fight!
With reports of harassment of Tea Party organizations by the government, whether its “visits” to members, double standards regarding access to sites for protests (OWS), or playing games with 501c3 approvals, its clear that under an Obama 2.0 administration we will have seen nothing yet.
This has reached the attention of Congress though few are willing to speak out. Rep Tom McClintock of California’s 4th district, as he has done since arriving in Congress, is once again willing to grab the flag on this pro liberty battleground issue, demonstrating once again why I think we should force a brokered convention and draft Tom McClintock and call him to choose Allen West as his running mate. Yes I know I’m dreaming. Yet there are similarities to the 1920 rancor that led to an eventual drafting of Warren G. Harding, who later led America out of a post WWI depression.
