Republicans in Iowa replace 'liberty' faction with new party leadersSubmitted by spacehabitats on Wed, 04/30/2014 - 08:53
The political establishment in Iowa is celebrating its victory over the only segment of the GOP that understands the difference between the Federal Reserve and Federal Express.
Here is the link to the Des Moines Register's article:
"Just two years after Ron Paul's eclectic army of activists orchestrated a hostile takeover of the Republican Party of Iowa headquarters, the other factions of the GOP have shown them the door.
Iowa is the first state to fully strip power from liberty-movement followers who led a charge on state parties in 2012."
And what are some of the wonderful benefits of this victory?
"-Big donors who closed their checkbooks may start giving money to the state party again."
Time to show the peasants who REALLY controls politics in America.
"-The new board members may side with [Iowa Governor] Branstad and U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley and end the much-maligned Iowa Straw Poll, a GOP fundraiser that has taken place in Ames the summer before the Iowa caucuses."
You know, that nasty Straw Poll that was a great money maker for the GOP and the pride of our state party until Ron Paul almost won it in 2011. Now it is time to get rid of it.
"- Republicans who have logged a long list of grievances against the liberty conservatives, including the snub of Mitt Romney at the national convention in Tampa, feel avenged."
Because, after all, it IS all about revenge and nothing to do with principles.
Happy Days Are Here Again.
