No More Bushes and No More Clintons…
The presidential buzz has already started with Jeb Bush kicking off his book tour with (too many) Sunday talk show appearances. Conservatives reacted last week: “Not again! We don’t need Jeb Bush or his son, George P., for that matter.”
Jeb was a mediocre governor. George Bush and the 110th Congress started the bailout frenzy with TARP—$700Billion to “purchase troubled assets” (bad mortgages) that were bought cheap and supposedly to be sold high. Well, it didn’t quite work out that way. The No Child Left Behind Program was a disaster. Our borders are neither secure nor our nation safe.
The Republican Party needs to craft the message who the real Hillary is—now! As Secretary of State, she not only exited the Benghazi debacle with no repercussion for her lackluster leadership (shame on Congress!) but she has been an advocate for a one world government for a very long time—which would be devastating to our nation. The Republican Party has to form a clear message what that really means—something that none of us would be satisfied with and will grossly impact us, i.e., do we want to adhere to international courts or have one currency—and it won’t be ours?
We, as women, need to rise above “It’s about time we break the glass ceiling.” That’s as poor a reason as voting based on color. Elections are about the very survival of our country and making the right decisions for our nation so that we can leave a better place for our children. It’s about cleaning up the mess we have in Washington.
If the Republican Party has the slightest chance in 2016, the establishment needs to retire its pansies and let the best Conservatives step forward. Isn’t it time that John McCain and Karl Rove step aside, guys who are performing, well, subpar?
It’s time that we let the very best step forward. Imagine a Rand Paul and Ted Cruz ticket or a Rand Paul and a Scott Walker ticket with Cruz as Attorney General? Rubio, sadly, is being played right now.
We have qualified conservative leaders who know our Constitution inside and out, who deeply love our country and who are willing to fight—even the establishment. We could give our children hope. We could soar as a nation once again!
