Eric Cantor’s Replacement Dave Brat featured at Daily Caller

The Daily Caller is one of my favorite online news sources. I have met the founder, Tucker Carlson on a couple of occasions at CPAC and other meetings and I love his wit and intellect.

Dave Brat, the Conservative Republican that is going to replace Eric Cantor has a piece in the Daily Caller titled “Why I want to replace Eric Cantor” that you should read.

I am blessed to have the opportunity to teach young people every day, and I often think of the world that they, and my own children, will inherit. Unfortunately, many have relied on Republican leadership that has failed time and again to bring our nation back from the road to decline.

These “leaders”have perfected a system that rewards Republican electoral and policy failure, and embraces betraying those who elected them in return for wealth and status — perpetuating a status quo which sacrifices principle but never their personal power. The only accomplishment of my opponent Eric Cantor, and other members of the establishment, has been to barely slow down the pace of Obama-era malaise and decline.

Congressman Cantor’s profile has been erratic even by Washington standards — flitting from eager establishmentarian coat-holder to self-glorified “Young Gun” and back again. His loyalties, both upward and downward, have shifted in his eager embrace of the Ruling Class. Washington’s only genuine article of faith: maintaining control regardless of how that control affects the life of the folks back home.

The Republican office holders, contributors, lobbyists, staffs, and consultants who comprise the party’s inner circle see 2014 as a chance to expand their share of the Washington action. For them, winning the majority in the Senate would be nice but is not essential. Expanding Republican leadership in the House is likewise not particularly high on the agenda.

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