Dear 'Republicans': Big Picture. Let's Not Destroy Every GOP Member Out There...
Dear GOP voters who say they want to defeat the Democrats,
Let's make our first mission clear: defeating the neo-progressive, leftist Democrats. If we can unite around that one goal, we're golden. The Democrats (leftists) stand for abortion on demand, limiting speech, limiting gun rights (but not so secretly wanting to ban them outright) and that humans are some how responsible for the warming of the planet (but not responsible for life we create) therefore we must be taxed more monies to fix it. The Democrats are the enemy. They must be defeated. Okay? Okay.
In order for us to defeat the Democrats, and leftism as a whole, we must bolster conservatism and conservatives. Leftists are already attacking conservatives. We gain nothing by turning on our own kind. So people calling Cruz "Lying Ted" or Rubio "Little Marco" or even falsely claiming that Kasich took money from George Soros (he didn't, someone who works for one of his firms gave some money to Kasich) we're not pointing to policy differences. We're assasinating character.
Even if you don't want those guys as president, you know what you really REALLY don't want? For all of these people to lose their seats to Democrats. Just think of how invigorated the conservative movement was after their monumental mid-term victories in 2010. Before you say it, I know, I know, many of those people turned out to be disappointments and betrayals. And the representatives who went back on their promises SHOULD be ousted... by their constituency. Not by a reality show election.
Listen, I don't like Kasich. He's not a conservative, he looks like a baby bird caught in the BP oil spill and he shouldn't be president. But he is a Republican governor in an increasingly blue Democrat state that can often determine outcomes of a national election. He was preceded by a Democrat. If Republican voters absolutely obliterate him in a general through dirty character assassinations, Ohio could easily swing back heavily blue. President Hillary Clinton with a strong ally in Ohio would be a catastrophe of epic proportions.
I despise that Marco Rubio was part of the "Gang of Eight." But Florida is a swing state. If he loses his senate seat, it could go either way. You think Marco's bad? Remember who he replaced? Charlie Crist? In today's undefined umbrella term of "establishment" it's easy to forget what the term actually means. Look it up. "Establishment." You'll find Charlie Crist's picture next to it.
If Ted Cruz loses the primary, he has to go back to the senate. Even if you're a Trump supporter and hate Ted Cruz, would you really rather a Democrat or even a true RINO take his seat? Because if he's ousted due to shifting public view regarding his uncharacter, undoubtedly whoever replaces him will be less conservative. It's mathematically impossible for someone to be more conservative, because Ted Cruz has been the single most consistent, conservative in all of modern American politics.
There are plenty more examples, but you get my point. Democrats rally around each other. They circle the wagons. In the GOP, we throw our guys under the bus at the next stop. Democrats understand something that angry Republicans don't. They understand the long-ball, and that destroying all allies is not a viable strategy in trying to oppose and defeat US, the Republicans.
When I recorded my undercover video at a Bernie rally, I was struck by Bernie's rhetoric. His greatest swipe at Hillary was "Another issue where Hillary and I have a stark disagreement is campaign finance reform!"
"Stark disagreement." Bernie Sanders is talking about a woman who was complicit in the cover-up of sexual harassment suits, rape accusations, the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, hiding classified emails on a private server in her broom closet and yes, EVEN KILLED A GUY (allegedly). Yet Bernie's sternest rebuke was a mere "stark disagreement."
Contrast that with conservatives creating Facebook groups and hashtags and poster boards for "LYIN' TED!" who's greatest sin was having a wife who works for Goldman Sachs.
I'm not saying Republicans shouldn't vet their candidates. Of course they should! That's what a primary is for. I also like the fact that, unlike the Democrats who agree on virtually every issue 100% of the time, the Republican party comprises of an intellectually diverse group. That's a good thing.
Republicans disagreeing on policy is fine. It's productive, but it doesn't harm their candidacy in a general election. Let me give you an example...
If Ted Cruz and Donald Trump simply attacked Marco Rubio by pointing out his work with "The Gang of Eight," it would serve their purpose of providing contrast to their positions. The attacks would and have no doubt hurt Marco Rubio in the primary. But guess what it doesn't do. It doesn't provide Hillary Clinton with ammo in a general election. Mrs. Pro-Amnesty herself is not going to attack Marco Rubio on a national stage for being "too moderate" on immigration. Her audience would see it as a positive.
On the flip-side, if everybody just labels Marco Rubio as a closeted homosexual who's been hired by the illuminati to do the "establishment's" bidding, ergo he can't be trusted... Well Hillary will have those kinds of attacks on a TV loop like a morphine drip.
Look, I understand that a huge portion of the Republican voter base is angry. Many of you with good reason. But if you really care about keeping America great, if you really want to ensure that the damage to liberty done by Barack Obama and her potential successor, Hillary Clinton (I just threw up a little) is mitigated, we need to be smarter about it. Throwing frustration like a dirty bomb at every single person who isn't your one, single savior is not only unproductive, but it guarantees us all that the United States may never be the country we want it to be again.
Send your hate-mail, I know you will anyway. But hopefully a few of you will think about this a little.
If you'll excuse me, I have to go accept my million dollar checks from BigOil, BigPharma, The Koch Brothers and "The Establishment." I'm late for our meeting.
