Establishment Republicans - Still Don't Get It

Establishment Republicans in Washington DC still don't get it. The message coming out of the 2010 election was to stop ALL the deficit spending and balance the federal budget once and for all. The only way that is possible is to eliminate completely many programs, agencies and cabinet departments that are redundant. Republicans need to show us $500 Billion in cuts across the board to demonstrate that they got the message. This business of nickel and dime cuts of $61 Billion, or even the originally proposed $100 billion is peanuts out of a $3.7 Trillion budget. Establishment Republicans will "compromise" to avoid a government shut down. But what we need is a government shut down to show the Socialists in Washington that there is a new sheriff in town. And, Republicans that go along to get along, will face primary challenges in 2012. Republicans that vote to raise the debt ceiling, without getting a balanced budget Constitutional Amendment as part of the deal, will lose their seats the next time around. We have had it!! WE THE PEOPLE want dramatic change not just tinkering around the edges that accomplishes nothing and puts our country one step closer to bankruptcy. Socialists will never change their tax and spend ways to pay off their PEEP's on the dole. If the Republican Party can't make this stop, then we will have to form a Constitutional Party led by politicians committed to sound fiscal management and Conservative values. It will mean the end of the Republican Party. Republicans better realize that they have been given one last chance to get it right. If Republicans turn out to be the Socialist Light Party, then their reason for being will disappear entirely and they will go the way of the WHIG Party. We need to see $500 Billion in spending cuts as a down payment to end deficit spending and get the federal budget on the right trajectory. To get there, everything should be on the table except higher taxes. Local, State and Federal Governments already confiscate quite enough of our money. We do not need to give them more of our money to mismanage. The clock is ticking for the Republican Party. So far many of us have not been very impressed; that's for sure. We need to elect real Conservatives that support free market capitalism, limited government, lower taxes and less regulation, a balanced budget, term limits, real education, energy and health care reform, a strong national defense, including securing our border and fighting terrorism, the right to bear arms, the sanctity of life and family values that are the foundation of our nation. This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth, job creation in our country and to prevent the bankruptcy of the United States. I just hope the Republican Party finally gets the message. So far not so good.
