Analysis Of The GOP

This WSJ article by Tom Coburn talks of the denial in the Republican party. Take a couple of minutes and read it. As The Baron pointed out, one can agree with it down to the last paragraph.

In Ol' BC's opinion Coburn makes valid points. He makes huge points that have been neglected by the current power in the Republican party. What might those be? Ready? Spending and expansion of government. Got it? Spending and expansion of government. If you don't get it or you just don't want to see it think back to the Contract with America. There are lots of other fringe issues. Right to life. Taxes. Gay marriage. Social Security. Illegal alien amnesty. School choice. There's a ton of them. In many, many of these federal intrusion should be the issue.

Let's take the right to life issue as an example. There is a large number in the GOP who are zealots when it comes to this. They want government intrusion when it comes to this issue. They are ready and willing to accept government intrusion here. There is also a large number in the GOP who view this as a moral, not a political, issue. There is also a large number who feel that this is an issue that should be reserved for state and local government entities.

Ol' BC tends to be among those who looks to the Constitution for the authority of the federal government. Article I section VIII and the tenth amendment. The number who share this outlook seem to be dwindling. I'm not saying it's not alright to argue the merits of any issue. I'm just saying that until the leaders of the Republican party realize that the majority of Americans want less taking and spending of our money and less intrusion into our lives by the federal government the GOP is going to be looking at loss after loss as election cycles pass.

Just a thought.

OMG...

Did you get to the last paragraph where Coburn absoluitely ruins the entire treatise by saying that John McCain is the guy to fix all this?

Wow. The Republicans are screwed for sure. Thank God I've left.

That's why I mentioned that one can agree with it down to the last paragraph. That last paragraph is quite a stretch.

Quite a stretch isn't the phrase. It's so far out there that it discredits the rest of the piece.

I can concur with that. I think Coburn is just trying to be a good soldier.
