An Overdue Message To The Republican Establishment

Via Billy


This post has been long in the making. It’s a response to an attitude that I see and hear expressed constantly like a steady drip of arrogance and entitlement. My indignation against it has begun to boil over; and now that primary season is in full swing here in Arizona, I think the time is ripe to address it. I’m sure it will get me cross-ways with some, but I think it’s time someone said it out loud (or in writing in this case).

Here’s my message to the Republican Party establishment. I don’t owe you anything. Not my time, my money, or my vote. I don’t care how bad things get, or how awful the policies of the Democrats are–and trust me, I fully understand how awful they are. I’m not required to support any of your politicians just because they have an “R” next to their name, or shut my mouth about the things I believe strongly about, just to ensure your victory on election day. In fact, I’m not even obligated to contribute to your victory. What happens when I mark my ballot is between me and God, and you aren’t entitled to any of it.


  1. Wow is that the truth. I fully expect the GOP to do everything including helping democrats defeat tea party candidates. The old guard republicans are no different than democrats. Those two own the sandbox and NO ONE else can play.

      We can always dream :)

  2. I no longer contribute to the Republican Party, but choose who I give money directly to. Both parties can go to hell as far as I'm concerned.

  3. I always figure if someone it trying to throw me off a cliff I'll grab them around the neck or waist and hold on. If I go they're going with me.

    I'm convinced that the establishment Republicans in DC are nothing but the loyal opposition. They want to put up a show to make it look like they are fighting for us but
    all along are conspiring with the other side in a massive game of good cop, bad cop.
    All they want to do is be re-elected, go to cocktail parties and look out for their biggest
    contributors. What you see on C-Span is a show. The deals are worked out over lunch or at the bar at night.

  4. & we could have had Ron Paul. I'd sure like to see Bill Whittle test the waters.
