Why the Loyalty?
I find it odd that Republicans were elected, in large part, to repeal the monstrosity that is Obamacare and now, many of the same people who screamed at me when I said Trump and the GOP leadership at the Convention in Cleveland were frauds, are now silent when the same people are knifing them in the back. They make up excuses. "Give 'em a chance." "It's only been 50 days." "This is just the first step." Bleh.
I will admit, some regulatory improvement have been made, but that is small potatoes compared to the large items, like Obamacare, Social Security, the tax code, Medicare and cleaning up agencies like the IRS and the VA. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, just this week, that tax issues won't be taken up for the foreseable future. The new Dear Leader is silent on the issue, after being bullish on the tax reform issue during the campaign and transition period. Sounds a lot like the last Dear Leader. The only thing different is the jersey and demographic makeup of the cheering section.
Now, we have Donaldus Smallhandus saying he'll support primary challenges to conservatives in Congress who don't support the rebranding of Obamacare. I don't like being right so much, but I TOLD YOU SO! This was in the cards. When the establishment GOP got behind Trump, it was because they saw him as maleable. His maleability is on full display right now.
Donald J. Trump is now a Washington DC hack. No more no less. I urge conservatives to fight back. Short of a viable 3rd party, we must begin to organize a primary challenge to Donald Trump.
Squishy members of the House must be primaried. I will assist in anyway I can. One such member here in Iowa is Congressman Dave Young. He needs to be deposed and left on the ash heap of political history. The man is a rubber stamp for GOP leadership and is useless as a legislator. He needs to go. There are many like him across the country.
I'm also for lousy GOP Senators being thrown to the curb. Orrin Hatch, Deb Fischer, Bob Corker and Jeff Flake all need to go. Look them up. I'd also be in favor of State Senator Chris McDaniels running for the special election seat held by Luther Strange in Alabama. Orrin Hatch is the epitome of all that is wrong with Washington, DC. Right now, there are only 3 decent Senators and about 35-40 decent House Reps. Find races you can impact and go at it. Politicians are like stinky diapers, they need to be changed frequently and usually for the same reason.
