You Are Going to Send Dr. Dave Brat to CONGRESS!

What is the future of the Republican Party?

Will it remain a Party affixed to K-Street and Wall Street, or will it become the Party of Conservatives, Constitutionalists, and Libertarians? Politics is primarily a game of thrones, a matter of money, influence, and power. I wonder, however, if principle and philosophy are impossible in today’s world, or if we’ve simply lowered our standards to the point where it is not that they are not possible, but that they are not practical.

And what is practical? I suppose it is practical to compromise and to show respect for those who have no respect for us, for our Constitution, or our heritage. I suppose it is practical to continue supporting wealthy power-brokers like Eric Cantor who, while he does nothing for us, allows government to go on functioning uninhibited, as the Leviathan it has become.

I think the RNC and the Republican Leadership in the House and Senate, truly believe that government is the new Freedom. They believe that government, big government, STATIST government is here to stay, and that we’d all be better off with them in charge, instead of Reid, Pelosi, and Obama. Is that good enough for you? Is that good enough for me?


Ladies and Gentlemen, the great patriots in Virginia’s 7th District have shown us the way. Dr. Dave Brat and his brilliant campaign staff have set an example that the rest of us must follow. Hard work, dedication, and perseverance have proved mightier than money. Dave Brat can’t compete with Eric Cantor’s Corporatist Machine, but he can work tirelessly to dismantle it; and dismantle it he has! You conservatives in the 7th District have brought tears to my eyes and hope to my heart. You have not just sent checks to the Brat campaign and hoped that hope was good enough. You showed up and you fought beside him. You showed up and you did what must be done.

The ousting of Cantor’s plant Linwood Cobb was just the latest victory from a district that has defied the fear and disbelief that has become systemic at the heart of the Republican Party, the leadership, and the RNC. You have just one more battle before you. This will be your last battle in this war between the Republican Establishment and the people. That battle is election day. Ladies and Gentlemen, you have roused an unbelievably wealthy Leviathan. If you think the attacks against Dave Brat were bad on Friday, you cannot possibly imagine how rancorous they will be on Monday.

Today is Mothers Day. The weather is beautiful. Today we celebrate Yesterday’s victory! You’ve earned it! The rest of Virginia is celebrating with you.

Tomorrow, however, we must return to the battlefield, pick up our arms, and continue to fight! If Eric Cantor keeps his seat, no matter how many battles he has lost, he will have won the war; and this is a war we cannot accept losing. Celebrate today. Tomorrow, however, we need you to knock on twice as many doors, donate twice as much money, write twice as many letters to the editor, talk to twice as many of your friends and family. Tomorrow we’re back to work, because we’re in it to win it. We can’t settle for less than victory on June 10th. I’ve been with you at these events. I’ve seen your passion and your spirit. I know that you can win, I’ve seen it in your eyes and heard it in your voice! You are going to defeat the Majority Leader of the House of Representatives. You are going to send Dr. Dave Brat to Congress.

And I love you for it. You are creating a new Republican Party, here in Virginia and in the 7th District.

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