Why the GOP is DeadSubmitted by inblack on Sun, 10/20/2013 - 10:55
The primary reason the GOP is a disaster is that conservatives don't know what they stand for.
What we are seeing in US politics is the triumph of ideology and message.
It is a lopsided battle where the social engineers know what they stand for and promise it every election. They use the state, the law and courts to impose a steadily growing and more powerful mechanism to lock their ideology into the minds of the people and into the fabric of society. They stand for implementation of a global utopia through force. They stand for elimination of opposition and elimination of opposing thought. They are Fabian socialist, humanitarians, democrats and marxists. They do not mind being called liberal (although they are not) and progressive (much better than conservatives), but these terms are not their philosophy, but temporary labels. They love to be called socialists and communists so they can point to text book definitions that they do not fit and call the accusation rhetoric.
So what do the conservatives stand for?
- Big business
- Old government
- Exploitation of the environment
- Big govt by manipulating the free market
- Forced values
- Big military
So now the conservatives are threatening to recast the GOP without the RINOS. The new conservatives (Paul, Cruz, Rubio) are still conservatives, without a philosophy, without a vision, without a message, without a chance.
What do conservatives stand for?
Opposition to change. The status quo.
