My Party, Right or Wrong

I'm watching "Capitol Crimes" right now, a Bill Moyers report on the Abramoff scandal. While Moyers is as far from an objective reporter as one could imagine, this story is such a sordid tale it makes little difference whether it's played straight or intended as a hit job. It's just another painful reminder to me of what a pathetic waste of 6 years this has been. Just what have Republican voters gotten out of having their party in control of the U.S. Government? Let's see - the Dow has just broken a record - a 6-year old record. Affirmative action and the "Diversity" regime are still solidly in place. Illegal immigration out of control. Manufacturing jobs dwindling away. Massive trade deficits (6% of GDP). $100+ billion being thrown down a black hole in Iraq. There's been some rollbacks in big government - if you're a big rancher or logger with an eye on national parks. But what I see is a government more involved in my life - No Child Left Behind interference in schools, intrusive searches at events, Sarbanes-Oxley regulations. My will to fear Nancy Pelosi is not particularly strong right now.

Dont forget Tom Delay's explicit approval of Asian sweatshops that used usury and lies to entrap young females for 12 hour a day, 7 day a week labor.

Im a Reagan Republican man, .............."God, momma, and the flag", but that FRONTLINE episode was utterly dispiriting.

Abramoff, Reed, and Norquist sunk to the mafiosi tactics of fundraising and favor-giving that I'd expected Gore to have pulled in coffee-klatches and fundraising calls that twisted the arm hair off foreamrs. We should never sink to their level. We DESERVE to lose big in November, as a repudiation to country-club, gated-community, corporate RINO's everywhere. They dont have the votes, just the money to run zillions of disparaging campaign commercials and the pull to get advertisers to run marketing on talk radio, thus paying for propaganda whilst they bilk the republic.

Can you BELIEVE Abramaoff called the Indian gambling honcho's "monkeys". Thanks Jack, that will cost us any chance at their vote for a couple of decades, as we can be sure the Dems will drag that up to them over, and over, and over as much as they do the Scottsdale boys and Tuskeegee test subjects to blacks. Harms any chances at inroads with these entire demographics.

As America gets less white, Repubs really WILL have to get non-white voters interested in our core issues, or face becoming a permanent minority party. I hope Reed gets discredited, Norquist becomes a minor player, and Abramoff goes to Jail. I hope Tom Delay has to get a real job while Texas voters elect a real Reagan Republican. He's the biggest sleazo-of'em all in my opinion.

The gathering disaster of an overspent, underprotected, ethnically replaced America represents a cultural and political debacle far too large to be blamed on one party. There are hardly any classical conservatives left; your choice is between Democratic race hustlers and pseudo-conservative Republicans kept on a leash by big business.

The new mentality, which includes both leftists and people who imagine they are conservatives, is illustrated by the comment from Anonymous: "As America gets less white, Repubs really WILL have to get non-white voters interested in our core issues, or face becoming a permanent minority party."

He or she has swallowed the poison pill, imagining that ethnic replacement is a given — no use protesting; no hope of stopping it; just suck up to the new minority majority and hope that enough of them will trust you, rather than the other party, to fawn over them more.

Republicans and Democrats are the same party, with the same big government, affirmative action, nanny state programs. I no longer care much whether Big Brother–R or Big Brother–D gets the spoils.

Ive NOT swallowed a "posion pill". I stated that we will "need to get minorities interested in OUR core issues".

Giving scholarships to people who didn't have the grades to deserve them isn't one of our core issues (yet) if thats what your thinking.

Let me summarize what an old-guard conservative (like me) believes in:

Energy independence by any means possible (nuclear, clean coal, shale oil, solar, wind, waves, geo-thermal, zero point, hydrogen, electric cars via nuclear power plants, hamsters on little treadmills----whatever).

Re-industrialize. New materials in home construction for MUCH cheaper and more affordable housing (the lumber and brick industries will resist with all their contribution might). We can be much more industrially compeditive if our workers can afford alot more house for the same money. They will mortgage less, and we'll be in less debt.

No more tax hikes and less spending.

Intelligent foreign policy. We aren't the world's policeman. If we were more engaged "anywhere", it should be in our OWN hemisphere. Let Europe, Russia, India all worry about the Muslims...........they SURROUND Arabia, not us.

Affordable family formation----read Steve Sailer. We need to promote marriages for folks in their TWENTIES, to get our birthrate back up between 2 and 2.7 or so.

Reclaim culture...........Wouldn't it be nice to go see movies like Casablanca, The Third Man, The Conversation, Hitcock's films, etc. AGAIN. Intelligent fiction like Tom Wolfe prevalent instead of trash. Intelligent modern music instead of MTV-dreck for our youth (kids are gonna listen to music, it should at least be a positive introspective experience and not mind-numbingly stupidity)----YouTube could actually play a role in this in the future to break MTV's (and Judy McGrath's straglehold on urban youth culture).

A strong economy buttressed by a good K-12 education that actually prepared kids for life (that would be the biggest battle of all time, but interested parents can do this now with the internet and books that are available online for kids to learn science, math, history, etc. OUTSIDE public schools on their own time if necessary). I, for instance, wish I would have had "Algerbra for Idiots" back in the ninth grade............I wouldn't have had to have taken it twice.

Those are just a few things right off the top of my head that we as Cultural, independent, God-momma-and-the-flag Conservatives could indeed get minorities excited about. Economic prosperity from self, less government intrusion, more families, more morality, more satisfying lives than media conglomerates can deliver with their "Sex and the City" fantasies. We get a bevy of candidates, the message out.................we'd still kick their butts.

"My will to fear Nancy Pelosi is not particularly strong right now."

Take another look at the Senate's Immigration Bill, which will surely be passed if the Democrats win the House.

I wish I could I vote for the Democrats, but despite all the GOP's shenanigans, they're still better than the alternative.

Derek, that's an excellent point. I wonder if they will, though - particularly the house, where even if the Democrats win they will realize that, because of immigration, they were one homo away from getting beat again.

I guarantee you they will pass it. Whatever their faults, the Democrats understand where their power is coming from: minority votes, and they want the structure in place that'll get them more and more. What's more they'll do it early, in the spring of 07, at the latest, so the issue will be off the radar by election time. Can they still lose in '08? Sure, but they'll be locked in for 2010, 12 and so on, because it's highly unlikely once the bill is passed that it will be reversed, because a block of ethnic and business interests will always be there to gum up any reform.

If the Democrats win, sugiero, con todo respecto, que todos nosotros aprendamos a hablar espanol, y muy pronto.

I enjoyed reading this particular comment, because it's exactly what I've been thinking. The legacy of the last 6 years of Republican rule is Imperialism, Insolvency, and Illegal Immigration. And you're right, no dent at all in the neo-Marxist social agenda of racial quotas, femi-nutsisms, abortion-on-demand, and "gay sexual liberation"...

Bush2 an dthe Republican Party think that they can win elections forever by catering to the CEO classes, and ignore the middle classes, and working folks, then they deserve a swift kick in the keister. I hope they get what they deserve.

Randall Parker discusses the likely legislative agenda if the Dems take congress - doesn't seem to scary to me. Immigration is the wild card - if they pass the Senate bill, then it's prosac time.
