Big Business Wants A Divided GOP – You Can Stop Them

US Chamber and Karl Rove
That the Republican Party and conservatives in general are tools of Big Business has long been a favorite theme of the Left and the establishment media.

Actually, the exact opposite is true – and nothing has illustrated this fact better than the recent battle over shutting down the federal government in the course of efforts to defund ObamaCare and force spending reform on the Capitol Hill establishment.

Big business, especially the military – industrial complex, vigorously opposed fighting the battle to defund ObamaCare and are all for raising taxes to continue to keep federal spending rising.

And why not?

To them it is not principle, but only money that is at stake.

This “it’s only money” attitude is why whenever there is a battle over the size and scope of the federal government Big Business is always on the side of Big Government – the Democratic Party and the “dime store Democrats” of the Republican establishment.

The battle lines are already being drawn for what Big Business sees as the coming showdown over the future of the GOP, and as usual the money is all on the side of Big Business and the grassroots enthusiasm and commitment to principle are on the limited government constitutional conservative side.

According to a recent article in New York Times, “The U.S. Chamber of Commerce will decide which candidates to support in the 2014 midterm elections based in part upon whether they voted for the deal on Wednesday to end the shutdown and raise the debt ceiling.”

Likewise the establishment Republican Party’s favorite political consultant, Karl Rove, has established a new stealth project inaptly called “the Conservative Victory Project” that is intended to defeat Republican challengers whose victories in primaries, it views as dangerous to the Republican establishment’s big spending policies.

On the other side are Jim DeMint of the Heritage Foundation, Michael Needham of Heritage Action, Matt Kibbe of FreedomWorks, Tim Phillips at Americans for Prosperity and millions of grassroots limited government constitutional conservative voters who want to see real change in the direction in Washington and the Republican Party.

For them, and for us, merely slowing the march to socialism and the rate at which the federal government spends itself into a financial catastrophe is hardly a victory.

The Main Street citizens of this country, who make up the conservative grassroots of the Republican Party, have finally become angered and engaged enough to draw a line in the sand and say “enough is enough.”

And the record is that when a candidate in a Republican Primary election draws a clear distinction between their conservative views and the “go-along-get-along” polices of the Democrats-lite of the establishment Republican Party we win and they lose.

Yet Big Business keeps the Republican establishment alive with its tons of money, even though everyone can see that what’s happening in Washington – the spending and the growth of government – is unsustainable.

The conspiracy minded among us might see a plan – spoken or unspoken – to keep conservatives divided and thereby maintain the big spending, Big Government status quo.

The Founders of our country noted in the Declaration of Independence that, “…all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

The same might be said for the leadership or management of any large institution, such as a political Party, like say the Republican Party.

Whether the current manifestation of the divide in the Republican Party is evidence of a real plan to keep conservatives divided or is (as we tend to see it) a clash of competing interests remains to be seen – but there is a way to resolve the matter and commit the Republican Party to being the political home of limited government constitutional conservatives – start at the grassroots where we are strong and take over the Republican Party one precinct, one county, one state Party Committee at a time.

Methinks its the evidence

Methinks its the evidence that much of the Tea Party does not understand macroeconomics.

I think its the evidence

I think anyone that says methinks is a nerd.

Methinks you need to rethink that though!

Methinks you have imbibed too much of the establishment Kool-Aid
