Several articles of late detail how major trade associations like the National Federation of Independent Business plan to take on the tea party movement. In part, the groups will back GOP incumbents who face a primary challenger. One example is Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) who is being challenged by fellow Republican Matt Bevin.
The articles I read, some in center right publications, were written by columnists who bought blindly into the theory that Republicans caused the partial shutdown that was so small it affected very few Americans on Main Street. Thing is, the GOP didn’t cause that shutdown.
The shutdown was deliberately caused by President Barack Obama and his fellow prog Sen. Harry Reid. Both refused to acknowledge the authority of the House of Representatives when it comes to revenue bills. Obama and Reid often ignore the Constitution, and that is a definite problem for those of us who believe state capitalism—soft socialism Dems are so fond of—will ultimately implode.
A major reason Dems wanted a shutdown lies in the 2014 elections. Democrats can’t tout their accomplishments. The party put a president in office who claims to know nothing about how the government he is in charge of is run. The shutdown was a tactic, a desperate search for a campaign theme. buy modafinil online sun pharma is already using the shutdown her own party precipitated.
A recent columnist mentioned Sen. Mike Lee (Utah) who won the seat formerly occupied by Sen. Bob Bennett in 2008. Bennett was the senator who accommodated the Mormon Church’s request for an buy modafinil singapore added “covertly” to a bill that deemed it “not a violation” to do the following:
“[T]o encourage, invite, call, allow, or enable an alien who is present in the United States to perform the vocation of a minister or missionary for the denomination or organization in the United States as a volunteer who is not compensated as an employee, notwithstanding the provision of room, board, travel, medical assistance, and other basic living expenses, provided the minister or missionary has been a member of the denomination for at least one year.”
The Mormons aren’t alone in wanting warm bodies. As spirituality declines and as clergy dive into politics instead of matters of faith, other denominations want more members as well because membership and donations may decline. Meanwhile, the U.S. taxpayer funds costs for crime, fraud, healthcare and welfare for the children of uneducated, low wage labor.
Another senator mentioned is Lamar Alexander (Tennessee). Alexander has a buy modafinil paypal The senator voted yes on a number of bills that were not even close to conservative. One of the most troubling ‘yay’ votes Alexander cast was the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act. Why is it not conservative? That act turns domestic violence into a federal crime. No one in his or her right mind should accept that because it violates the Constitution.
Primaries are held for a reason—so the party can run the candidate who attracts the most votes and who most resonates with the constituency. The GOP doesn’t lack robust candidates. We lack robust messaging and leadership in Congress, and there’s too much my way or the highway in a number of sectors.
Those business groups and party leaders should acknowledge a couple things before going off on tangents, however. For one, there’s no way the Democrat Party will revive this economy. The party’s leadership only knows how to create government jobs and how to impede private sector jobs. Don’t even get me started on the looting of personal wealth Dems have become geniuses at.
For another, the tea party wasn’t around as a movement when long term debt was set and the unconstitutional Obamacare health “tax” law was passed. The GOP did a poor job defending even a shard of conservatism in pre-tea-party times.
Healthy debate within a party keeps it strong and keeps it growing. Top down tyranny within a party like the current state of the Democrat party ultimately leads to what one essayist in The Federalist Papers viewed as “feeble” leadership.
The GOP is experiencing growing pains right now. The DNC is experiencing decadence and incompetence.
Ifbuy modafinil europe, they should look squarely at the White House and Senate controlled by Democrats who refused to agree to a delay of any kind with the Obamacare “tax” bill. Then after the shutdown ended, what did our president do?
He delayed that bill. In doing so, Obama took ownership of the shutdown, along with his party fellow Reid. That media cover up that ownership should surprise no one, but you’d hope business leaders are smart enough to figure it out.
