There is no doubt in my mind that the leadership of the establishment wing of the Republican Party, the Bushes, Roves, Romneys, McConnells, and others, are more concerned with taking back the GOP from the conservatives rather than taking back our nation from the malignant Biden regime that has radically transformed America into an unrecognizable mess with rampant inflation, crime, illegal immigration, and corruption.
Likewise, I no longer know what the leadership is thinking as the old party platitudes: less regulation, fewer taxes, less government spending, smaller government, and a strong military have proven to be valueless as the GOP leadership says one thing and then does another in the dead of night. With many being more conciliatory, they call it “bi-partisanship,” to the malignant regime than adherence to the U.S. Constitution and American core values.
Why not both attack the regime AND let America know you have a workable recovery plan of action?
Attack Biden or promote an agenda? Republicans split on 2022 campaign strategy
Republicans eager to retake control of the House and Senate in November have different ideas about how to win voters, and the divide is causing party tension that has spilled into public view.
The clash centers around Sen. Rick Scott’s “11 point plan to rescue America,” which he introduced this month. He is promoting the plan in digital and television advertisements.
Mr. Scott runs the Senate Republican Party‘s campaign arm, but his endorsement of a detailed agenda clashes with other ideas in the party. Senate Republican leaders say they want to campaign against the failures of the Biden administration, not publicize a legislative game plan that Democrats could distort to discourage voters.
Republicans say two of Mr. Scott’s proposals are easy fodder for Democrats.
Mr. Scott’s plan calls for taxes at all income levels, which means Americans who bring in too little to pay federal taxes — nearly half of all income earners, including retirees — would have a tax increase.
The plan also calls for a five-year limit to all laws, which would require Congress and the White House to reauthorize the entire federal government, including Social Security and Medicare.
Mr. Scott said the proposal aims at government reform and debt reduction.
“If a law is worth keeping, Congress can pass it again,” Mr. Scott writes in his pitch.
A top party aide told The Washington Times that Republicans “will focus on the issues that Americans really care about like inflation, crime, energy and finding issues that unite us and are very clearly at the top of mind for Americans who are dissatisfied with the way things are going right now, especially with the Biden administration and Democrats in Congress.”
[OCS: An anonymous “top party aid?” The issues currently affecting America and all Americans are well-known and obvious. So why isn’t the GOP talking about them now? While the progressive communist democrats advance their agenda 24/7, it appears that the GOP is content to wait a month or so before an election to advertise their platform. Too late to make an impression on those who have already internalized the opposition’s message as an existing truth.]
Mr. Scott, meanwhile, has not backed down from promoting his 11-point plan. Television ads continue to air, and the website promoting the plan remains operating. Last weekend, the Florida Republican promoted his proposal to the party’s enthusiastic base at the influential Conservative Political Action Conference.
The proposal attacks liberal spending and social policies, calls for an end to disclosing race or ethnicity on government forms and requires children in public schools to recite the Pledge of Allegiance. It proposes increased penalties for theft and other crimes, and finishing the wall on the border with Mexico and naming it after former President Donald Trump.
“It’s going to be ridiculed by the left, mocked by Washington insiders and strike fear in the hearts of some Republicans,” Mr. Scott said. “If this plan doesn’t scare Washington, we certainly haven’t aimed high enough. And based on the way Democrats are attacking me this week, I said we’re here to say we hit the bull’s-eye.” <Source>
[OCS: Of course, it will be ridiculed by the left – Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, Rule 5, “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” Of course, it will be mocked by Washington insiders as any change to the existing dung heap that is Washington would cost them political power, influence, and curtail their revenue streams. As for striking fear in the hearts of some Republicans, who might these RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) be, and why should any American care?]
They may be in the wrong order, but they are important to the discussion…
Here Are The 11-Points In The Plan:
- Color Blind Equality
- Safety and Crime
- Growth / Economy
- Government Reform and Debt
- Fair Fraud-Free Elections
- Gender, Life, Science
- Religious Liberty and Big Tech
- America First
In my list:
- A stronger “non woke” military that can fight on multiple fronts.
- Community safety and crime control rather than gun control – including investigation and prosecution of political corruption.
- Closing our borders and enforcing immigration laws, including implementing an e-verify mandate on employers and VISA controls (Re-thinking dual citizenship and birth citizenship).
- Reduction in regulations.
- Reduction in government spending by prioritizing needs and eliminating district pork and carve-outs.
- In addition…
Start telling the truth about the communist-in-chief and his cadre of acolytes that hijacked our nation with his transformative policies that were designed to deconstruct our nation.
'If not us, then who? If not now, then when?'
We are so screwed.
