[What ails the GOP? Part II]
At the beginning of my most recent blog article (What ails the GOP?), I quote from two pundits well and favorably known to many of the self-professed conservatives still in enthralled by the GOP. In the first, Michael Savage walks right up to the simple truth about Barack Obama, then (perhaps sarcastically) stops short of saying it outright. He points to the deeds whereby Obama has betrayed our country, then backs away from calling him by his right name, saying: “Let’s not go there. If you do, you’ll realize that the situation is far worse than you think.”
In the second quote, Ann Coulter uses the harsh word Savage stops short of applying to Obama. The headline of her article refers to the GOP as “Double Crossing traitors”, referring to their constituents, not their country. Bold as it sounds, that use of the word leaves us pondering a question: “To whom and for what have they betrayed their constituents?”
The answer is evident. They have betrayed them to Obama, in exchange for continued support from the elitist faction powers that be. These are the powers that control and/or finance the media and political campaigns that political empires of leaders in both parties who agree to be willing actors in the twin-party sham.
Thanks to their collaboration with Obama that the GOP leaders have undoubtedly failed to live up to the rhetoric they used to win the 2014 Congressional Elections. But if it could be shown that they failed to represent their constituents in order to do their duty to their country, would they still deserve reproach? In their Constitutional oath of office, they swear to support the Constitution, which both they and their constituents profess to cherish and uphold. They affirm that they take the oath “without mental reservation or purpose of evasion”. This forbids them simply to put their loyalty to their constituents above loyalty to their country.
But something doesn’t quite ring true if we list Obama’s treacherous deeds, then refuse to call him a traitor to his country. Similarly, something doesn’t quite ring true about calling GOP leaders traitors to their Party, but failing to make it clear that it isn’t just a matter of partisan disloyalty. By collaborating with Obama, and failing, by all means, to call him to account for his high crimes and misdemeanors, the GOP leaders are betraying the Constitution. They are betraying their country.
Partisan disloyalty is not what’s wrong with the quisling GOP. What’s wrong is their failure to stand, with all the powers at their disposal, against Obama’s anti-American malice. Michael Savage was probably being sarcastic, but just in case, let’s be clear: We need to go where some pundits fear to tread. We need to call out the domestic enemies of our country. We need to call out the quislings who, for all their lying words, end up abetting or tolerating the damage being done by those enemies.
I freely admit that these are fighting words. But thanks to the wisdom of America’s founders, for a little while longer our Constitution still leaves, us with ways of fighting for right that will not bathe our streets and fields in blood. Tragically, thanks to the folly of conservatives unwilling to let go of the GOP delusion, that opportunity is rapidly being foreclosed. It’s long past time for the true believers among them to ponder the words of the Scripture:
Now the LORD had said to Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house… (Genesis 12:1)
No man can serve two masters. For either he will hate the one, and love the other: or he will sustain the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. (Matthew 6:24)
Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers… (2 Corinthians 6:14)
The GOP’s elitist faction quislings cannot serve God-acknowledging Americans and collaborate with an elitist faction tool like Obama, who is reluctant to mention the name of God, even when historical accuracy demands that he do so. In their interactions with Obama, the quislings prove every day which side they lovingly sustain and which they hatefully despise.
The well-intentioned conservatives who are the objects of the quislings’ ongoing political enmity still proudly claim the title of Americans. When will they prove that they’re still ornery enough to deserve it? When will they stop passively resigning themselves to GOP treachery? When will they take the political initiative that offers the only hope of remedying the now nearly fatal effects of that treachery?
The present party system has been hijacked and thoroughly corrupted by the elitist faction. It represents the failure of constitutional government of, by and for the people of the United States. Severed from its founding principles, America’s liberty is being set up for complete annihilation. Elitist faction judges are poised to discard the concept of unalienable right, ripping out the conscientious heart of our body politic. Elitist faction legislators are allowing lax enforcement to erase America’s borders, stripping off the skin of our body politic. They are poised to finance an amnesty scheme for illegal immigrants that dilutes the integrity of the franchise, thus decomposing the electoral process that is the other most vital organ of our body politic.
Last but not least, they are cooperating to advance elitist faction economic, trade and security policies that empower the greatest competitors and even the bitterest enemies of our body politic (including the haters of liberty in our own midst), virtually assuring that we will soon face extreme crises on every hand, crises that will push our body politic, bled by decades of elitist faction treachery, towards its complete collapse.
It’s not even a quarter of a century since the United States had reason to ponder the responsibility of being, for good or ill, foremost “among the powers of the earth”. Now we are being forced to admit not just the end of our leadership, but the near certainty of an imminent material and moral collapse that will jeopardize our lives and livelihood as individuals, and cast serious doubt on our survival as a nation.
We face an era more challenging than any we have ever faced as a people. We need a clarity of spirit, mind and moral purpose that will surpass the extraordinary statesmanship of the past. As a people we are deep in the throes of the long, dark night of the soul in which, like individuals, nations can lose themselves without recourse. It is all for the reason Solzhenitsyn warned us against, what seems now like ages ago. America has forgotten God.
I believe that the whole purpose of the elitist faction agenda for our destruction is to engage, distract, amuse and confuse us utterly, so that we refuse to remember Him until after it seems to us too late. Then the remembrance that would have been our reprieve will instead intensify the searing agony that afflicts our perdition. Yet as long as affliction is still to come, it may still be an alterable fate.
The challenge is clear. We must remember God, no matter how hard a fight it takes to do so. Remembering Him not only in our heart’s imagination, but in the very core of our passions, our mind, our spirit, our limbs, and our will. Falling to our knees to pray; rising to our feet to act, we must rally round the standard of God’s justice, in the certainty of God’s power, with the courage of people who trust in God more than in their own arms, or wealth or cunning calculations.
