TREASON: A Republican Party Completely Full of … Coulter.

Ann Coulter, the treacherous sycophant of the wealthiest corporatists within the Republican Establishment, recently spewed forth an article articulating, with shallow precision, the real strategy of the GOP. Their strategy is this: Republican voters have no choice but to vote Republican and Independent voters have no choice but to vote Republican.

This insipid lecture, which I will quote for you shortly, accurately defines the mindset and perspective held by those in power; a mind-set which I have repeatedly lamented and criticized. For those of us outside of the corporatist center of this Republican juggernaut, Coulter’s piece is a painful reminder that no matter how badly we want the Democrats to lose, we cannot… I repeat, we cannot, vote for establishment Republicans under any circumstance, nor for any reason.

The blond sniper for Karl Rove begins her nauseating attack on the conservative and libertarian wings of the Republican Party with the following:

“Take a moment to notice something, Republicans: No incumbent Democrat had to deal with a primary challenger this year. That’s one reason why Democrats win more elections than their insane ideas would seem to dictate. Liberals understand that you can’t do anything if you don’t win, so Democrats don’t stage primary fights against other Democrats”.

I didn’t have to read the rest of the article. Everything that follows is predicated on the assumption that the only thing that matters in America is that Republicans win elections. What they do afterwards doesn’t matter. Debt, war, massive prescription drug bills, and higher taxes aside, we should all just take these debacles in stride, because, “Hey, at least the Republicans won”.

No, Ann. That’s not how this works.

Coulter continues,

Assignment No. 1: Sen. Pat Roberts needs to spend every day from now until Nov. 4 campaigning in Kansas. Roberts is smart, personable and engaging — he’s always voted “funniest senator”! He’s certainly no John McCain. (Rand Paul is John McCain.) I don’t know why Roberts got a primary challenge at all. Please stop doing that, Republicans.

Having difficulty following her prose and her purpose? Me too. I have no idea what “funny” has to do with anything or what Rand has to do with McCain or what McCain has to do with Roberts. None of that matters. What matters is that you conservatives damn well better stop challenging the political class within the Republican Party, or else Ann Coulter (whenever Fox News can’t book Karl Rove) will go on national television to deride you.

I wonder what she really thinks of all you good people in the 7th District that refused to renominate the Majority Leader of the House of Representatives. I’m pretty sure she hates you. Do you hate her?

Well, fine, so she wants us to vote for Senator Roberts, who never spends any time in the State who’s citizens allow him to continue vacationing in Washington D.C. At least Roberts isn’t Scott Brown, a New England liberal pretending to be a Republican in order to one day, by the grace of Karl Rove, run for President as the next Mitt Romney. What does Coulter think about Scott Brown?

Assignment No. 2: Everyone reading this column has got to donate to Scott Brown immediately. He’s running in New Hampshire against a slick incumbent Democrat, Jean Shaheen, but he’s a very strong candidate. Brown won the primary only last week, and he’s already tied in the polls. He just needs to catch up to Shaheen’s $11.2 million war chest.

This woman is out of her mind if she thinks that conservatives are going to donate to Scott Brown’s campaign. She was out her mind when she thought conservatives would vote for Dole, McCain, or Romney. What makes her think that conservatives, libertarians, or disaffected and dispirited Republicans without an ideology, will support Brown?

No, Ann. No!

But here is the real gem. What follows is the black nothingness which floats flaccid in the center of what is “The Republican Establishment”.

The biggest current danger for Republicans is that idiots will vote for Libertarian candidates in do-or-die Senate elections, including Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina and Colorado. (That’s in addition to the “Independent” in Kansas who’s a Democrat.) Democratic candidates don’t have to put up with this crap — they’re even trying to dump the official Democrat in Kansas to give the stealth Democrat a better shot.

When we’re all dying from lack of health care across the United States of Mexico, we’ll be deeply impressed with your integrity, libertarians.

Which brings me to my final assignment this week: If you are considering voting for the Libertarian candidate in any Senate election, please send me your name and address so I can track you down and drown you.

Thank you, Ann. Thank you for solidifying for me an even greater motive for voting against Ed Gillespie in November. Thank you for reminding me who the Establishment really is and what you really think of the voters, who spend the majority of their time working to pay their high taxes and afford their increasingly expensive health care (no thanks to the Republican Party), and do not have time to study you and your Senators, nor the energy to figure out just how often you lie and use the Republican base and their votes to empower Wall Street and K Street and yourselves, all at their expense.

Ladies and Gentlemen, if this Republican Party, which has done nothing but ignore you, disrespect you, and threaten you, wants your vote, then they are going to have to do better than Scott Brown, and Pat Roberts, and Ed Gillespie. If you are as frustrated as I and you want to do something about it in November, then I would like to present you with two options.

Why two?

Because I don’t expect you to do what I tell you to do. I expect you to do what you think is right. The end all be all of my life is not convincing you to vote for the candidate that I support.

I won’t threaten to drown you.

Option 1. Vote for Robert Sarvis in November and send the Republican Party a clear message that we will not support more K-Street Establishment types in our State. If you would like to donate to Robert Sarvis’ campaign click here.

Option 2. You can always WISH. If you can’t support a Libertarian candidate, because you disagree with our Libertarian Platform, then you can join the growing movement of conservatives and constitutionalists from all over Virginia, who cannot vote for Gillespie with a clear conscience, to Write In Shak Hill. If Shak Hill were on the ballot, I would have voted for him for Senate. He’s not. Sarvis is and I’ll vote for Sarvis. I am a Libertarian after all, so this isn’t shocking.

But for you conservatives and constitutionalists who do not want to submit to an establishment that despises you, and who know that voting for a man like Ed Gillespie encourages people like Ann Coulter to continue brow-beating you into submission, you have choices. You don’t have to vote for Ed Gillespie. You don’t have to obey the Karl Rove’s and the Ann Coulter’s and the Mitt Romney’s of the world.

The Republican Party isn’t their party anyway. It  is your party and I suggest you take it back. When you do, my conservative and constitutionalist brethren, I will join you. Until then, it’s the LP for me.

One Response to “TREASON: A Republican Party Completely Full of … Coulter.”

  1. Bob Shannon

    Two very basic elements are not understood perhaps as clearly as they need be.

    The first is what State Senator Tommy Norment discussed in King William a few weeks ago when he visited. Norment and the republican establishment love to cling desperately in an effort to defend their record that politics is the art of compromise. Anyone who has followed actual results the last 30 years, either at the National or State level knows all too well that the “compromising” has always without exception come at the expense of conservative principles being thrown out the window in this incessant quest for “compromise”

    Over a 10 year period for example Virginia’s budget doubled, yes doubled. That simple concise fact is ample evidence that all of the compromising has been at the great expense of conservative philosophy being discarded . Excuse after excuse if offered up whenever republican politicians are challenged on this fact, but never is the truth addressed, namely that republicans compromising resulted in bigger, more intrusive government, more spending and higher taxes. It solidifies Rush Limbaugh’s comment from August 2013 when he said ” republicans don’t really want smaller government, they just want a turn at running it” . Perhaps Ms. Coulter might care to try and explain just what she thinks has been achieved by this blind adherence to this loyalty she now advocates. Maybe she can explain to us dunces who she would prefer drowning how blind partisan support for a political party that in practice ( not rhetoric) really governs only marginally different than democrats. Campaign slogans and platitudes are quite a contrast to how they actually govern Ms. Coulter and the inconvenient truth is however still the truth.

    At the federal level we all remember the promised 30 billion in FY 2011 spending cuts , if only we gave republicans more control in Congress. Well, we subscribed to the program Ms. Coulter is advocating, gave republicans 82 new seats in the U.S House and we got how much in FY 2011 spending cuts Ann ?? Nothing -Zero.

    One can only conclude that voters subscribing to Ms. Coulters strategy are in light of these irrefutable facts, fall into one of two categories

    1. They are blind partisan loyalists, willing to ride the ship of state all the way to the bottom of the Sea, so long as they keep “winning” or–2. Misinformed, voters who either ignore the actual history or simply subscribe to the “less of two evil” mentality.

    Those who subscribe to the notion that supporting Rob Sarvis are wasting their votes might just want to examine how they define the “wasting a vote” paradigm. I believe that voting for a political candidate representing a party that is void of any significant achievement the last 30 years , these are indeed the one’s wasting their votes, regardless of the outcome.

    May I , once again repeat what the esteemed John Taylor said earlier this year ” republicans won’t change until they know we will not vote for them” .

    As November approaches ,ask yourselves honestly this one simple question:

    ” Are campaign slogans and platitudes going to address runaway spending, a tax code horribly broken, an education system that is run solely for the benefit of the professional Educrats, an Immigration policy collapsing our social safety net, or the ongoing avoidance of another dozen pressing problems ignored by both democrats and republicans for the last 30 years” ?

    Let’s start with asking Ann Coulter to answer that one.

    Bob Shannon

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