    Unfortunately, Sam, you are 90% right. While there are some elected who have high hopes and high ideals - they succumb to indoctrination of the Hill by the incumbents.

    This is why it's not a bad/sad thing to vote incumbents out.

  • I enjoyed your analogy of the "Bob Dole school of the GOP". That is absolutely how the Republicans act. When the Democrats commit insanity, the Republicans act like we would be happy with just a little less insanity. Yet, the Republicans know that Conservative are in a pickle. We certainly will not vote for the Marxists controlling the Democrat Party, and the Republicans know it. They come home to campaign and sound like they are Tea Party, then go to Washington and turn into spineless wimps. Then they get mad when someone like Ted Cruz or Sarah Palin speak out. Never in our history have we had so corrupt and incompetent President, and the Republicans are so cowardly, and so useless, that is almost seems like they want another Marxist to be elected President. Do you see how the Rino Republicans are pushing for Mitt Romney again? I don't get it. Its almost like the Republicans are throwing the fight on purpose.

    Well, my goodness! Sam, it is so good to have you back with us. I missed you brother. I am hard pressed to find any Conservative that will speak out for fear of being called names. We sure have a mess on our hands. The President is lawless and stupid, and that is a dangerous combination. Once again the GOPs want us to support them, but we are never sure if they will support us.

    I am very glad that you are back writing again, I never understood why you stopped, unless it bothered you that Liberals called you names everyday? Why would that bother you? :) I am kidding you a bit. Keep fighting, and I will too.

    Leo and others, thanks for the welcome back. I hope we all can begin to speak out for a return to the Constitution, and Liberty. Enough of Liberals and their failed policies.

  • Sam, the devolution from democratic freedom into socialism is inevitable. More people get onto the "gimme-voter express" all the time, supported by fewer and fewer worker/taxpayers until the whole mess collapses of its own weight. President Obama has been elected by the gimme voters twice while those paying for the benefits stand by astonished and bewildered.

    In the coming years you will see greatly expanded tax efforts by the government at all levels, seeking to raise sufficient funds to pay for all the welfare benefits and fund huge military spending at the same time. Examples: a mileage tax on vehicles is coming (in addition to fuel taxes, sales taxes and property taxes that we already have). NSA snoopers will be ferreting out anyone who might not be coughing up their "fair" share. Recently the law regarding foreign bank accounts and trusts has been used to confiscate those accounts through ridiculous penalties--even if the owners had properly paid their taxes; just because they failed to report the accounts through simple ignorance of the new requirements.

    Attacks against the rich, the so-called 1 percenters, the haves against the have-nots. The political rhetoric along those lines is being used to gin up support for higher income tax rates, similar to those in the Eurozone.

    All of us act in our own self interest. So do politicians. They need to get reelected periodically, and to do so they promise ever-increasing benefits to the voters. To cut these benefits would be to cut their own throats, politically, so that will never happen.

    If the GOP gains control of both houses of Congress, and the presidency, too, they will NOT repeal Obamacare. It will not happen because that would cost them votes, and their lifetime political careers would be over.

    Great to have you back posting, Sam.

    John, you explained the unfolding scenario very well. You should be blogging instead of me. The only thing I would add to your brilliant comments is the Left's tactic of smearing opponents, attacking those who point out what is going on, and they drive politics into the gutter where decent folks have a hard time operating.

    You never see the GOP dip into the bag of dirty tricks the left uses everyday. The left uses women and children, while seldom, if ever, doing anything that helps them. The left uses blacks the same way, constant charges of racism, constant victim hood for the downtrodden, demonizes those who have solutions, and then the Democrats make things worse for blacks.

    It is really wild to watch it all unfold. It's like we are caught in a retarded Twilight Zone.

    Later John -

    Apparently the GOP voters want the RINO factor involved in our politics. Pat Roberts wins his primary in Kansas. Another RINO who will not do one single thing to stand against the Socialists. If elected Senator again, Roberts will do everything in his power to make sure the government gets bigger, more intrusive, steals more of your money and grants amnesty to millions of invaders. Same as Democrats. Hard to get mad at RINOs like Roberts and Johanns. GOP voters must want this. Hard to understand, but they want it.

    UNLESS, GOP voters are becoming like Democrat voters. Those who voted for the RINO Roberts, must want some money from the FEDS (taxpayers/producers). Subsidies and programs that make a few rich and leave our grandkids with the bill.
