Crybaby Republicans – Do Your Job or Resign

“Instead, my moral indignation – and that of the vast majority of conservative Americans – is saved for and directed towards the results of actions, not words.”

Although I don’t recommend it, one advantage of growing up on the wrong side of the moral tracks, and not coming to faith until the middle of your life, is that you’re not often surprised by bad behavior.

You forgive much because you have been forgiven much.

So, I’m neither surprised nor particularly shocked by Donald Trump’s lewd and suggestively vulgar comments about a beautiful woman in a private 2005 conversation with Billy Bush from Access Hollywood. It was playboy bravado on steroids.

Instead, my moral indignation – and that of the vast majority of conservative Americans – is saved for and directed towards the results of actions, not words.

Our anger is focused on a President and his radical lefties, which includes Hillary Clinton, who have spent eight years doing what they promised to do, “fundamentally transform America;” and at the feckless Republican enablers who have refused to do their job standing in opposition.

The Obama-Clinton axis has been on a rampage of destruction and has brought immense pain to tens of millions of Americans.

The economy is flat lined with the slowest growth since the Great Depression, while real wages and net worth has dropped substantially and healthcare has been wrecked. Unemployment and part-time underemployment continues to be obscured by nearly 95 million working age Americans sitting on the sidelines; while one in five households have no family member working at all. Poverty, especially childhood poverty, is up substantially, with a record 50 million people on food stamps. The radicals have flooded the nation deliberately – in violation of U.S. law – with illegal aliens.

These are real actions and real consequences that millions of Americans have to live with and pay for. That should make every American mad.

Overseas, the President and his former Secretary of State basically set the Middle-East ablaze and then turned their back on the catastrophes they helped set in motion. They have emboldened enemies and browbeat friends. They have watched in silence while citizens and military personnel of the United States are disgraced, humiliated and murdered. Their meddling in Egypt and Syria has churned up chaos and death, with millions of refugees set loose on the world.

Ominously, they have allowed the Russians to secure a decade’s old dream of an operating platform in Syria from which they can project force into the Gulf, and influence Israeli freedom of action.

Real actions, real consequences.

The Republican crybabies in Congress egged on deliberately by the Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan (and in Northern Virginia, his acolyte, freshman Congresswoman Barbara Comstock), are very good at moral preening; they are quick to faint with vapors over Mr. Trump’s sophomoric words, but somehow can’t find the outrage to fight the radical actions of these hard core leftists and Hillary Clinton.

In fact, they accommodate them, and then excuse their own inaction.

But most of the Republican crybabies don’t even seem to recognize the irony at hand; many of those most publicly “offended” by Mr. Trump’s vulgar lust-rant – the far left political operations and the entertainment and news media complex – are their political enemies, and the same folks who have brought us the cesspool public culture we now swim in every day.

You can’t watch TV nor go to the movies without hearing much, much worse language than the Donald’s. (Is there a female star in Hollywood who doesn’t routinely drop the “f” bomb and other profanity in public?) Evidently it is a mark of “real” sophistication, and is now commonplace, driven deep into the general culture. Where are the crybabies speaking up about the sewer the entertainment-news complex has created in the culture? “Bleeping” sad.

There is no such thing as shame anymore, and it crosses gender.

Graphic sex and crude sex terms are now common on prime time TV and in the movies, even when it has no specific purpose. It is pushed like drugs. Promiscuity, one-night-stands and pornography are praised in their situational repetition by woman in virtually every medium. After all, they’re just like guys, right?

Likewise, if you’re a veteran of politics in Washington, then you probably have plenty of stories about “big name” politicians (some of whom are sharp Trump critics) – in and out of Congress – who make Donald Trump look like he is on the “JV team,” to quote our President (who, of course, has a very reckless personal history in Chicago that everyone ignores). Sexual intrigue and conquest, prostitution, pandering, solicitation, drugs and booze – they are simply part of the background noise in the nation’s business, and always have been.

None of this excuses Mr. Trump’s behavior, and there is probably more similar tapes coming. So, bad on him.

But the question is; does this disqualify him for high office? And, if so, what about Mrs. Clinton and her outrageous behavior? Do the crybabies condone her behavior that has resulted in dead Americans, compromised national security through the email scandal and left America weakened abroad?

Let’s load the discussion correctly: There are two presidential candidates that have more baggage than the luggage turnstile at JFK airport. Yet, one of them will be the President-Elect of the United States on November 9th.

One has some bawdy and brash things to say. But he’s largely right on the diagnosis and the cure; Washington is corrupt and it needs a good shakeup. Moreover, Mr. Trump is not responsible for the current state of affairs in the nation in any way, shape or form.

Mrs. Clinton on the other hand, is. She has been a bad actor for thirty years in thought, word and deed. The word corrupt simply doesn’t have the richness to describe her public or private life. There is no gem in her roughness.

Some of my friends are so offended by Donald J. Trump that they can’t pull the lever for him. Fine, we get it, don’t vote.

For the rest of us, we have a choice that can be made by the application of reason, deduction and, yes, faith. This is a fight a long time coming. Many of us are surprised by the General we have. But that doesn’t mean the war is any less worthy of the effort.

And the Republican crybabies? Here’s an idea; do your job or resign.

    Dated June 2016 Post VA Republican State Meeting
    Donald Trump has done to the grassroots and Tea party what for the RINOs could not do without extra help.
    After the Va state convention in Harrisonburg, I began to ask  questions. With so much great young, talented, smart, energetic, and honorable potential candidates, why has RNC and VRP/RNC failed to get elected a single major election in the pass 8 years?
    DNC or the RNC. The number of failures by GOP leadership on all levels to win elections and major issues of legislation are too numerous to list. I have a file full of Eric Cantor letters where he was fighting for me. Eric was great at fighting but lousy at winning. I glad he is now winning filling his pockets with greenback which will be worthless in the END.
    So let’s look at the facts on recent GOP elite opposition against Donald Trump.  My personal experience has been that the elected officials start great but soon lose their way. Donald Trump has peeled the veneer from the established country club republican.  Elite conservative GOPs are not what they seem. They believe in a two tier system. Why is it that an elected person is addressed as “Governor” even after they leave office?  I would suggest that we stop giving this silly deference that feeds the deadly narrative other than the Republic. To date, the small minded elite conservatives have joined to plain RINOs to derail the people’s, according to the votes in the primary, choice Donald Trump. Regardless of party, the dynasty elite are so obviously are  only focused in their personal interest.
    Observations written in June 2016. Unfortunately, the conspiracy theory according to some ,however the revelations come from above, has become a reality. Except the last chapter has not been written.
    The American people will go vote on November 8, 2016. I pray to God that He will save us from ourselves.
    God Bless America

    Given your argument, it’s clear you wouldn’t object if a stranger walked up and stuck his finger up your bumhole or his tongue down your throat. And certainly you wouldn’t complain about it if it did happen.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
