BlogsforVictory is an interesting petri dish of what is happening within the movement of the Right. I never thought I would do this but it is a big tent. There are the Mark Noonan types on one pole of the religious constitutional conservative compass who want America to be a G-d first, dominionist, agrarian nation. On the other pole are the libertarians like GMB who just want to live their lives. Somewhere in the middle we find Amazona who cares little at all about the social issues and is more of a political technocrat wanting the goal to be the proper application of the Constitution as written. To her it isn’t a living fluid document but should be interpreted literally. Her argument that set GMB off:

Well. MY ideal candidate would be one with the understanding of the role of the Executive Branch of our government, who would understand that he or she simply should not have the power or authority to increase personal liberty or decrease the size of the government.

But maybe that’s just me. Just me, commenting on the fact that so many who claim to be conservative really don’t mind an overreaching government, as long as they approve of the direction of the reach.

MY ideal candidate would be one with a clear and unwavering commitment to reinstating the Constitution, with all of its delegated duties (such as enforcing the law) and restrictions, who will push the only part of the government with the power and authority to slash its size to do so. MY ideal candidate would be one who understands that the way to “increase personal liberty” is to decrease incursions upon it, and then let it flourish.

My ideal candidate is NOT Jeb Bush, whose alleged reputation as a conservative is bogus, and who blew his cover when he supported Common Core. It is most certainly not Chris Christie, whom I have always seen as a blowhard who will turn his coat depending on which side he is trying to impress.

I never saw Mitt Romney express a preference for a large and powerful federal government. I saw him as a man of intelligence, honor, dignity and immense talent, whose grasp of the principles of business, combined with his love of country and his commitment to our Constitution, would have made him a good president.

I still see self-proclaimed banner carriers of conservatism, who announce that THEY are the ones who represent the movement, in all their narrow-minded bigotry and overweening ego, screeching that if people do not look like, think like, and act exactly like them then we don’t need their vote and they can just go vote Left, as an element crippling the cause and the nation. They are, as I often comment, not different from the Left, just the other side of the coin, because their alleged political views are really as identity-based as those of the Left, and just as ignorant of actual governance.

I would not be surprised, if it came to that, to see these self-proclaimed gatekeepers declare that they don’t want to accept the votes of the Log Cabin Republicans, or of anyone who falls outside their rigid little boundaries of what THEY find acceptable. Their attitude is “Take those millions of votes and give them to the Left, because we don’t want them—–they are not from people we deem to be Christian enough, or straight enough, or whatever enough. We only want votes from people like US.” They put Obama back in office, and I think they are willing to throw the whole country in the trash can year after year, posturing as loving their country but really only loving what they see in the mirror.

GMB replies:

You are free to be as homosexual as you want to be. You are free to murder as many of your babies as you want to murder. I want to be free from you. I do not wish to associate with your type. I do not wish to have my tax dollars used to force me to associate with your type.

” They put Obama back in office, ”

Still with that tired old meme? Can not you come up with anything original? Do not bother. In 16 it will be true for once.

You want to win the white hut? Stop with your incessant crap and urge the gopE to give the people a candidate they can believe in.

“posturing as loving their country but really only loving what they see in the mirror.” Yeah, that is right. Want to sit down somewhere and compare DD-214’s old woman? I think that would be very interesting. ,mmmmkkkayyy?

Nice blabbing wit ya.

I’m waiting for someone to attack GMB for his “ageist” pro military insults to Amazona. Similar comments from Progressive bloggers have been deleted in the past in this echo chamber. I am not holding my breath.

  1. You really have a way of describing those poor miserable lonely people. I’m jealous!

    • I am neither poor nor miserable or lonely. Thank you very much.

      “Similar comments from Progressive bloggers have been deleted in the past in this echo chamber.”

      Yeah really? Did not at least one reiCHwing wackjob call them out constantly for pulling that crap?

      If you have any memory at all would you care to name that joker?

  2. “I am not holding my breath.”

    You could have. You would not even have turned, what color is a demons skin? Whatever, Do demons even need oxygen to live? Again whatever.

    My comment was zapped lickETTEeee split.

    I should not even be here. My religious beliefs proscribe holding converse with creatures of the netherworld.
