Former WI Governor Tommy Thompson used to begin speeches by loudly, emphatically, enthusiastically proclaiming:
“ISN’T IT GREAT TO BE A REPUBLICAN!”
That was a long time ago.
Today’s read is from Richard McDonough, writer, editor, and author. Here’s an excerpt:
It used to be necessary in the early 1950s to declare that one “is not now and have never have been a member of the Communist Party”. That is no longer true. Since Marxists have infiltrated virtually every institution in America while the Republican “leadership” were cashing checks and sucking their thumbs, it is now necessary for patriots to make a very different declaration, so I make it here: I am not now and never have been a member of the Republican Party. I usually hope Republicans win elections but this is not because they are very good. It is because the Democrats are even worse.
I usually hope Republicans win elections but this is not because they are very good. It is because the Democrats are even worse.
We no longer have a liberal Democrat Party and a conservative Republican Party. We have a far-left Democrat Party bullied by Marxist adolescents and a weak divided Republican Party. There are a handful of good conservatives in the Republican Party but the “leadership” and too many other elected Republicans, are only interested in cashing checks, putting on make-up for the camera, “losing gracefully, asking their donors what they’re required to do, confirming leftist justices that don’t know what a woman is, betraying their voters and, of course, stabbing other Republicans, generally the few with a backbone, in the back.
OK. That’s lengthier than a typical tease.
But there’s more. Lots more.
Read it all here.
