The Grand Old Party is about to commit suicide.  

All this talk about Trump this, and Trump that, masks a far bigger political controversy. The Republican Party leadership in Washington, D.C., has fundamentally betrayed its constituents and they are about to learn that they’ve been double-crossed — for years.

Every Republican candidate’s stock speech sounds the same, the thunderous roar about a government out of control, federal spending out of control (insert charts and graphs and why, if you stack hundred dollar bills, they will reach the edge of the universe), federal taxes out of control (insert comparisons to socialist countries), the federal bureaucracy out of control (insert metaphors about chains, yokes, and the like), the family shattered with federal funding of abortion a crime against humanity (watch for it — there! The heart-wrenching sob), and our military is emasculated.

Two more items were added to the menu, courtesy of Obama. Obamacare Will Be Repealed! and Illegal Immigration Will Not Stand!  

In 2009, the Democrats controlled everything, partly due to the Republicans’ cowardice on Capitol Hill, and in part because of some of the most inept candidates and campaigns America has seen in years. The Obama folks could have played it safe but went for socialist gold, using the power of the legislative and the executive branches (and later the judiciary, thank you Justice Roberts) to advance their agenda.  

That included federal spending on a level unmatched in human history resulting ultimately in a $19 trillion in debt we simply cannot pay, and with so many tens of trillions of dollars in unfunded liabilities that “infinity” is not far behind. One seventh of the economy was confiscated by the federal government with the passage of Obamacare. Our national borders were declared open and discussions over our national sovereignty closed. And to top it off, the Democrats all but declared themselves above the law.

The GOP harrumphed that this would not stand, by God! If only… if only America would vote them into the majority.

In 2009, the Tea Party was born. The Grand Old Party was rejuvenated. Happy days were here again.

Just one year later, the Republicans captured the House, and with that, the power of the purse. They now had the authority to stop the insane spending on so many obnoxious and wholly unnecessary ventures. They could end Obamacare simply by not funding it.

Instead, under the “leadership” of John Boehner, it did absolutely nothing. Why, if only we had the Senate! Then we could take on the President!

[Editor: Nothing in this article is a surprise to anyone on AFA.  We have known this for years but hope springs eternal.  No more.  Perhaps you know that the idea of dumping the republican party is germinating across America.  Groups are forming up for the Constitution Party, The American Party, the America First Party and several others.  While we don't believe for a moment that 80% of our elected lawmakers are doing the right thing (the other 20% are yammering about the 80%), there is no hope of out-voting the republican and democrat parties unless groups get together.  So long as they are splinter groups, no matter their sincerity, they will be like spokes on a wheel without the wheel.  It's doubtful that the current republican party will survive for long.  Something will rise up to fill the void.  But what? Bozell?

The democrats are in even more trouble.  The time is ripe for a new party but a strong leader would have to step up and take charge of all the different ideas and groups.]

Maybe Trump could run leading the banner of a new party, under any of the above names.  Then the Democrats and the Democrat-lites (establishment GOP) could run against him and each other.  Trump is the only one who could draw enough moderate American votes from both existing parties to add to those voting citizens who are die-hard supporters of the Constitution. And, I think he could make a good case for drawing in the more Libertarian young voters.  Let the Dems and the GOPe fight over those wanting more of the same -- big government, uncontrolled immigration, continued ObamaCare, and deficit spending.  The Dems will run a Marxist against him, and the GOP will run a milk toast centrist like Romney, Jeb Bush, or Kasich.  Trump would win.

It's beginning to look like this or another revolution, which at least is authorized in the Constitution. God save the Republic.

I've been wondering for a couple of years when this was all going to hit the fan. Now it seems to be hitting across the country at the same time. I'm praying for any group that can get the support and leadership to make this happen.  It amazing how Trump has rooted out the true traitors in both parties.

I don't believe the Republican Party is going to commit suicide.  I think it definitely needs a huge revamping however.  Despite the well-deserved continued criticism by true Republican voters for their Party to get back on track, there are very many Good people in Congress.  But the OLD GUARD has TO GO!  McCain, McConnell, Ryan, Graham and their cohorts are ruining it for the rest of us.

The DemocRatic Party however, IS DEAD!  It needs to slip away silently into the night.  It has no leaders who aren't Communist or seriously brain-damaged.  The DemocRatiC Party is IRRELEVANT !

Larry, your posts often make me laugh but this one is very naive.  You know, the Whigs said the same thing right before the republican party was started with help from Lincoln. Where are the Whigs today?  The current republican party thinks like the Whigs of old. Democrat rank and file think the democrat party is just fine but needs a bit of 'revamping'. They can't see the forest for the trees. BOTH parties are on a crash course to destruction. I see it on twitter all the time. It's time for a major shake up in American politics.

'My posts make you laugh,' followed by being called naive.  That's rather condescending Mr. Jasppersgoat.  I don't recall ever demeaning you as a person though I may have disagreed with a posting of yours.  Perhaps you meant to say 'insightful from a different perspective' or perhaps you just had a moment of flippancy and wrote the first thing that came into your head. 

I've received a different comment on my posts that leads me to take yours very lightly.  Numerous times people have commented, "nail on the head", so I'll defer to that description and give yours the proportionate consideration it deserves.

Now, Larry, my laughing is because you are funny and endearing. I just love your sense of humor.  I don't understand the level of the misunderstanding - I meant it as a complement.  Acerbic wit.  Saying someone is naive is not a slur, it's just an opinion.  I get called naive all the time. Often, I am.  I don't get upset about it.

Let's just both focus on America's and God's real enemies.

I view the two party system is in reality four separate political entities operating under the umbrella of two - Democrats and Republicans.  The Democrats are split into the left, socialist, communist oriented.  Where have the JFK democrats gone to rest?  The RINOS occupy the largest political portion of the GOP with some (very few) political conservative Republicans.

I estimate one in ten of the elected politicos actually listen to the voters.  WikiLeaks email intercepts reveal funds were being diverted from Clinton’s campaign to the Super PACS of Jeb Bush, Carly Fiorina, and John Kasich.  But that is not all as the Clinton Foundation, the Pantsuit Mafia, bought off several key members of the Republican Party (John McCain, Lindsay Graham and Paul Ryan) to push the Clinton agenda.

This not just revenge. This is out and out treason.  And the treachery and the corruption are on both sides of the coin.  Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing who the true Republicans are and who are the ones that are fronts for the Clinton machine, the Pantsuit Mafia.

We the people will have no idea who is on our side and who is not.  I for one voter will never trust any of the six republicans identified in the attached article for the full story.  The Soros-Clinton team will have killed the Republic and we will never know until it is too late.

Trump is facing the same treachery as Julius Caesar and these RINOs are doing everything they can to stab him in the back.  We must be alert at all times in order to prevent the destruction of the American Republic.


Information is DANGEROUS to those who wish to enslave us by Debt ... and it is they who think a confederate statue is "racist" ?? They are the segregationists, as Stephen Douglas warned us about.

"I deny the right of Congress to force a slaveholding State upon an ..."

We all need to move to the constitution party. Is there a Democrat news letter on the net?

Ernie, we are set to interview the leadership of the Constitution Party in the next few weeks.  We'll let you know what their mission is and how they intend to succeed.
