Conservatives can Unite Thanks to Karl Rove


Karl Rove Knock-Out

I have a tendency to view Foreign Policy through the filter of Neoconservatism which in essence the promotion of American Exceptionalism, promoting alliances with democratic principled nations that view the USA favorably and make the effort to transform Third World nations to instill Liberty and representative democracy. The lesson learned about instilling Liberty and representative democracy in Muslim dominated nations is that the Western version is impossible. In lands dominated by millennia of Islamic indoctrination any Liberty and representative democracy will only work through the filter Islamic Sharia Law. Sharia is inimical to American Liberty at the very least.

 

I tend to view American Domestic Policy through the filter of American Conservatism which is Less Government, Lower taxes and a Free Market Economy.

 

I am definitely not a purist in either Neoconservatism or Conservatism because on minor issues I kind of do a mix and match depending on the effect an ideology affects American Exceptionalism and the promotion of Christian Morality in America. And so I have thoughts that tend to irk both Neocons and Conservatives.

 

The Neocon in me has often found favor with Karl Rove the architect of President GW Bush’s two election victories over acutely Leftist candidates in former VP Al Gore and current Secretary of State John Kerry. That made Rove a hero in my book. THE TIMES THEY A CHANGED.

 

Karl Rove has begun to filter his Neoconservatism through a love of Establishment Republicans and a hatred of true Conservatives in Tea Party candidates. This is unacceptable and punitive to true Conservatism.

 

Karl Rove is making my case that Conservatives MUST abandon the Republican Party and unify under a different political party that attracts voters supportive of true Conservative Principles and able to educate American voters that more apolitical in voting but are duped by Dem Party Leftist propaganda.

 

The key to unifying Conservatives is the Tea Party Movement. Currently the Tea Party is awesome on grassroots and deficient on moving voters on a national scale. Now how can Conservatives utilize the genius of Tea Party grassroots organization to find a unified national movement?

 

This is how: Unite Conservative leadership that is already recognizable on a national scale. Take that national leadership to form a political party with the various local Tea Party organizations gather to form a national caucus and/or a national political party convention to establish a political platform and develop candidates with a singular Conservative agenda to win the hearts of American voters tossing both Establishment Republicans and Leftist Dems to the political dung heap of nausea.

 

Maybe we Conservatives can thank Karl Rove for giving us an excellent reason to form our political party that has nothing to do with the GOP.

 

The inspiration for these thoughts is a recent column by Joseph Farah condemning Karl Rove who intends to target GOP Conservatives that are out of step with Establishment Republicans.

Palin, Please Unite Conservatives in New Political Party


Sarah Palin 7

I remember how disappointed I was when Sarah Palin announced she was not running for President. In hindsight it was very prescient for Palin not to run in the 2012 cycle.

 

It was evident the Establishment Republicans were still running the show and only tossed bones to the true Conservative base to acquire votes. I mean look at the case of Missouri and GOP candidate Todd Akin. It is a case in point. Akin led incumbent Senator McCaskill by double digits at one time. Akin makes one faux pas about abortion and “legitimate rape”. Expectantly the Leftist Dems and RINOs were all over him for the phrase. However it was disappointing that the Establishment Republicans caved in to a Leftist PC moment and not only denounced Akin’s faux pas but informed him NO Republican Party money would go for his election campaign. Let’s face it Akin was a Tea Party Conservative with Conservative Social Values. That means Akin was too Conservative for the Establishment Republicans pulling the purse strings.

 

Palin would never have had the support of Establishment Republicans. That is why Mitt Romney won the nomination and lost the election. We Conservatives that are the hugest part of the GOP were left with an ‘anybody but Obama’ choice.

 

This is one of the reasons I am leaving the Republican Party. I will still vote for Conservative Republicans in my voting area; however I am going to actively seek another political party to get behind. When that day of the choice for a new political party occurs, if that Party is able to field candidates in my local area I will even say bye-bye to the local Conservative Republicans. That is how much I believe the Establishment Republicans screwed the opportunity to dump President Barack Hussein Obama.

 

Talk is finally beginning about Sarah Palin’s political choices for 2016. If Palin sticks with the GOP, she would not win the nomination OR if she wins the nomination the Establishment Republicans will undermine her campaign for President.

 

One reason Obama won reelection is because the Dems and the MSM presented an absolute united front to win Obama’s reelection. Whereas the GOP were divided between Conservatives and Establishment GOP, Social Conservatives and Establishment GOP, Conservatives and RINOs, Anybody but Obama Republicans and anti-Mormon Christians and so on with the scenarios of divided Republicans.

 

Rather than live with a disunited GOP I would rather be a part of a united front that stands against a united Leftist machine. I would rather be a part of a Conservative political organization that is united and emerging than a part of the Republican Party working against Conservative Principles that include Christian Values and an Original Intent Constitution. Sarah Palin would have a better chance of a national nomination for President in a new political party.

 

Here is a historical analogy.

 

The Republican Party came into existence favoring abolitionism in 1854. The Republican Party fielded a national candidate in John C. Fremont for the first time in 1856. The political climate of 1856 was dissatisfaction with America’s leaders which led to the division of Whig Party faithful. The Whigs and the Democratic Party were the two major political parties prior to 1856. Political parties found a migration of voters that eventually decimated the Whigs forming competing political parties. Southern Whigs notably joined the Democratic Party. The Democrats major opponents were divided between the new Republican Party and the Know Nothing movement (officially the American Party). The Republicans under Fremont almost won that election and I am guessing they may have if it was not for the Know Nothings. The eventual winner was Democrat James Buchanan that although from Pennsylvania was Southern Sympathizer politically (SA a glimpse of Buchanan’s private life).

 

The political divisions of 1856 led the Free North States to place Republican Abraham Lincoln in Office in 1860 causing most of the Southern Slave States to secede initiating the Civil War. Lincoln’s closest competitor in the Electoral College was Southern Democrat John C. Breckinridge.

 

Today America is polarized between a Leftist vision for America and a Conservative vision for America. Unfortunately the journalists of the Mainstream Media and the intelligentsia dominating the Academics in Colleges are committed to the Leftist vision. The Conservatives primary vehicle to communicating fiscal Conservatism and Social Conservatism is a free Internet and Talk Radio. The Internet and Talk Radio is currently the best way to mobilize grass roots activism to break down the stranglehold of the MSM (journalism, TV & Hollywood) and Leftist Professors.

 

I pray Sarah Palin is the catalyst to unite Conservatives to reverse the curse of anti-Conservative and anti-Christian of the Leftist vision for America.
