Via Smitty, who is brighter than anyone in the GOP leadership
If the GOP wants to continue getting crushed in elections, just continue coloring within the Progressive lines, accepting the consumption of liberty by Leviathan. The tax code has long since ceased to become a means of funding legitimate government budgets. We don’t pass budget legislation anymore, and the taxes that are collected are pit into which all too small leap over shall fall. Way to go, DC: you’re as oppressive as King George III ever was.
But where is the reform? GOP candidates just repeat “Jobs! Jobs! Jobs,” as though the Federal government somehow isn’t shot through with rot and in need of a tear-down and retooling. We all know it does. So, if the GOP ain’t got the sack to:
(a) Articulate the real systemic issues,
(b) Lay them at the feet of the Body-surfing HawaiianOrator,
(c) State what major chunks of the Federal Government are getting lopped off,
then just what good is the GOP, anyway?
