The conservative voice does matter
First, thank you very much for the support, congratulations and kind words as to my first column last week.
How many times have we heard, “My voice doesn’t matter” or “My vote doesn’t count”? Not only was the Fort Bend Republican Party’s Executive Meeting well attended on August 23, but the Executive Committee brought home an almost unanimous grand slam in striking down—in their entirety—both Sections 4.2 and 4.3 of the Bylaws.
“The Executive Committee is a PAC,” was explained, which is grossly inaccurate. The Executive Committee is not a PAC.
As much speculation circulated as to who was behind these most destructively attempted changes, no one came clean on Thursday evening. The Executive Committee spoke loud and clear and wants no part of creating a hand-picked subset committee in removing their voice.
So, from the Conservative community, hats off to the Executive Committee for standing firm and doing the right thing for the Party. The way our Party will lead with the highest, unwavering ethics is beginning with our leadership. The bully intimidation tactics don’t reside only in the Democratic Party. The Conservative grassroots get it and are willing to stand for the truth, willing to face intimidation in its worst form. The Executive Committee united, stood firm and spoke.
As for the national scene, what hypocrisy as the four-term Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) uttered, “We should vote a fiscal cliff just to teach Republicans that they have to raise taxes.” Does the necessity for term limits come to mind here? How is Murray, a senior member of the Senate Budget Committee and a co-chair of the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction, making such an ignorant statement?
The way the Republican Party will win this election is with enormous courage, ethics and holding the Democrats’ feet to the fire. We should remember the two-point rhetoric, led by Obama, (1) Bush was spending too much money; and, (2) we needed to get out of the war. Not only have the Democrats forgotten these two talking points but we aren’t reminding the country what they were.
It is critical that we stay focused. Every day that Obama and his minions can distract, with whatever the topic of the day, is seriously detrimental. No matter what questions are posed to Romney or Ryan during the debates, the answers have to expose the financial destruction that has been hurled on us, the unconstitutional behavior and Executive Orders that have been issued—the worst in our nation’s history.
The bully tactics will continue—and get worse—as we get closer to Election Day. Wouldn’t the AFL-CIO and the NAACP be hurling flaring remarks if a Republican candidate was pushing Jesse Jackson over the cliff in a wheelchair? Did we forget so soon that Obama said it was the Vets’ fault for enlisting and they knew what they were getting into, while Michelle Obama has now morphed into this “concerned” person for the Vets, while she munches on French Fries and tells our kids what to eat?
It is crucial that we have a clear, succinct message, reminding the voters that jobs have been taken away, an unconstitutional moratorium issued and permits denied, guns have been given to the cartels, our borders are not secure and our defense dangerously low, entitlements are destroying our great country and Obama is anxiously awaiting to “work closely with Russia.” All from the most incompetent leader who allowed Solyndra $528M in failed stimulus loans—on our backs. Chaotic and dangerously destructive behavior will be exercised with the entitlement generational recipients once they realize that we cannot continue to sustain this massive spending.
The time is now that we stand firmly placed, prevail over the intimidation mongers and we win this domestic war.
