Why I’m quitting the GOP

Or perhaps I should be more realistic: the GOP actually quit me.

Last night Boehner and the GOP caved.  Again.  Boehner also put off a vote for aid for victims of Sandy.  And further, here’s how stupid your US Senate was on Tuesday:

The U.S. Senate voted 89-8 to approve legislation to avoid the fiscal cliff despite having only 3 minutes to read the 154-page bill and budget score.

Multiple Senate sources have confirmed to CNSNews.com that senators received the bill at approximately 1:36 AM on Jan. 1, 2013 – a mere three minutes before they voted to approve it at 1:39 AM.

Correct.  Mr Obama’s “transparency” once more: three minutes to read a bill before a demanded vote.

And then Republicans voted.

I shake my head.  How insane is all of this?  No one knows of this abortion.  And no one seems to much care.  The DEM/MSM ignores all of it, purposely.  The American Media Maggots.

Perhaps I’ll have to craft a new logo for the DEM/MSM/AMM.

The “debt ceiling” issue is also around the corner, in roughly six to eight weeks.  Boehner will cave on that as well.  So will the rest of the GOP.

Simultaneously, it’s being trumpeted that Obama will rapidly be going for amnesty for Mexicans and gun control.  He’s on a roll.  Imagine that.  And who might the “enablers” be?

It really doesn’t matter what the GOP does any more in DC — similar to the GOP “presence” in my state, Fornicalia.  The Demorats have such a supermajority in Fornicalia that they can do what they wish when they wish, with absolute impunity.

In DC, realistically — any more — there isn’t a dime’s worth of difference between the Demorats and the Republicans.  They all want to be treated with deference, like little Kings and Queens.  They all want their cars and perks and pensions unsullied by such limitations as are placed on the Proles and Groundlings — you and me.

They want excoriations and limitations placed upon you and me, but with exemptions for their perfumed and coiffed personas.

I say: that shit has to die.  Throttled and garroted and shot and exsanguinated again.

I say: it won’t, if the Republicans have anything to say about it.  And they do.

Because they are in league with the Demorats in terms of fleecing the American electorate.

I am changing my registration from Republican to Independent.

My cash to the GOP stopped long ago, with a few exceptions.  My Congressman, Tom McClintock, did NOT vote with Boehner.  He gets my cash as long as he’s in office.

It’s like this:

Your house is on fire.

House On FireYou are watching TV at another friend’s home.

Your emergency is being covered by the media.

But you’re worried about the response of the fire station.

How are their rigs polished?  Are they nice and resplendent?  Do they shine?  And, moreover, when they have an open house, will they feature tri-tip as opposed to burgers?  Will you be invited?  And how many tri-tips can you consume — more than your neighbors?

Because, after all, how they respond is as important as what they mean to do.

  1. “I am changing my registration from Republican to Independent.”

    There was a time when I thought that was the most dangerous statement that could ever be made. It was just throwing your vote away — and, in most cases, enabling EXACTLY who you DIDN’T want. This past presidential ‘election’ proved me wrong.

    No more.

    We had a house cleaning awhile back. 0bimbo, himself, said he didn’t realize he was the cause of a lot of people losing their offices (or, words to that effect.) I thought, “Ah-Ha! They’re FINALLY getting it!” But, they didn’t ‘get it.’ In a few short months, the replacements picked up real quick how to pick their noses and scratch their asses and, it was back to business as usual. The standby explanation afforded is always, “You have to realize that’s how it’s done in politics.”

    No more.

    You’ve really said it all, BZ. I’m just venting, because all I’ve ever heard my entire life is how dangerous a three party system would be.

    No more, because I don’t see how it could get any worse.

    Just in case anybody wonders… I’m that guy standing in the line with sign above it that reads: INDEPENDENT REGISTRATION HERE.

  2. I think the only way we get back to where we want to be is after the chaos has subsides. And getting through that is something none of us want to imagine.
    But, ready or not, here it comes.
    Please tell me I’m wrong.

  3. I have been an Independent for a LONG time now, the GOP leaves me cold, and now that they voted Boner back in as Speaker… Sheesh, the definition of insanity… Did it again, do they really expect a different result?

  4. Yeah, you know, I guess I fit the definition of insanity, thinking that somehow the GOP would change. They’re no better, really, than the bulk of the Demorats.

    If the Libertarians weren’t such goons on two issues, I’d consider joining. Independent will work for now. Fornicalia is going down in flames and won’t recover. The same can be said for the nation.

    Right now, it’s just damage control for a time. . .

    I feel the same way. I could very easily be considered a libertarian except for the reasons you mention. I flipped a coin when I changed my affiliation. Heads, independent, tails, conservative. Tails came up….didn’t matter tho’ anything but republican was fine with me at this point.

  6. I’m late for the discussion as usual but I was EARLY on my switching parties. I went from Republican to “Undeclared” as New Hampshire terms it, about 6 or 8 years ago. Call it ESP or something. When I saw Dubya spending like a drunk sailor (sorry sailors) I knew that the R’s were done for.

    • Truly, that is something of an insult to those poor sailors.

      But there is only ONE person who has trumped Bush for all time: Mr Obama.

      He is spending in such a fashion as never before experienced in ALL of the planet’s history.
