Kamikaze GOPSubmitted by itchy spider on Wed, 10/23/2013 - 14:00
Why do the Republicans keep flipping and surrendering? Even when the hold the narrative and advantage.
Why do they go counter to many platforms the Republicans have been known for? Like the Gang of Eight/Boehner/Rubio/Paul Ryan on amnesty?
It looks like it might be these Republicans KNOW their time in the party will be over soon. Their base is so disgusted with them, that the base will actively go about getting rid of them.
So these politicians are scuttling the ship. They are going to kamikaze through the Democrat platform (debt ceiling, amnesty, etc). To set up the relationships for a future as lobbyists.
Perhaps they are looking ahead, past their life as a politicians, and expect/were offered a future as lobbyist for a way out of their predicament as party turncoats.
Republican politicians who know their future as Republican politicians are over and are going kamikaze to set up their post politician life as lobbyists or attempts at switching parties.
Thus destroying the GOP party and setting up Hilary.
The GOP base will be able to rebuilt with true liberty-minded folk...but that would only be after 2016, after the Repubs are completely collapsed and reeling from passing the entire DNC platform.
