As always we hope our government will do the right thing; we depend on it. The democrats are doing “their” right thing for the party of big government with lavish tax and spend patterns, but the republicans seem to crumble when it comes to sticking to conservative common core principles. Only a handful of republicans have drawn a line in the sand over the years, sticking to their conservative values and principles of a smaller limited government.
Why do the majority of republicans think the democrats have them over a “barrel” and cave into pressure? Could it be it’s because the democrats are all about taking from the mouth of one and giving to the other? The democrats in Washington are all about re-distributing taxpayer money and this is the corner-stone of their platform which garners (buys) them votes. Something is about to be given away to the people and republicans erroneously believe they must go along to stay in power.
Because of what the republicans have done to themselves Romney lost in the 2012 presidential election. Their disillusioned electorate stayed home and didn’t vote. The people who normally vote for republicans are tired of weak and spineless lawmakers that continue to fail them.
Presently the House is wrangling with the “Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act” (S.744) from the Senate, the House republicans are crumbling while listening and reading from one-sided media outlets. Toss in Progressive (big government) republican consultants along with lobbyists and one can see why the weak ones jump on-board. Big business with bags of money that could end up in re-election coffers “if only…if only you would just… hint”.
Something has happened and the political paradigm started its shift in 2010 after the current President proceeded to tear the country apart with massive destructive policies after he was elected in 2008. His big government reckless spending policies along with a complicit congress in his corner have put America in the poor house. The American people responded back in 2010 with a large seat win in the House, making the republicans the majority; largest one time increase in 70 years. Not because the electorate loves republicans, but because the massive bleeding has to be stopped.
During the next election cycle of 2012 the republicans maintained their majority in the House. Again not a love fest for republicans from the electorate but the ship is sinking and the American people needed damage control. However, the republicans will still cave on some issues, worrying about their image; what image?
The political paradigm is shifting and is attributed to a more engaged electorate, something that has been missing for decades. No longer can the people vote and go back to work without worrying what is scurrying behind their backs. The old model of getting information through liberal media channels of radio and television has been usurped by obtaining information via internet sources. Politicians that lie to the electorate and then do the opposite are now suffering the consequences of their actions by being caught.
The political paradigm is shifting and congress has been put on notice.
