Yesterday I witnessed one of the saddest days in Virginia Politics (on top of the terrible days in Campbell and Fauquier Counties). While I was not personally there, I received regular updates from those that were. And I think this marks a turning point in the Party and their attempts to purge the Conservative faithful from the ranks. The Republican Party has made it clear that if you are Conservative, Christian, or possess any principles or morals, you are not welcome.
So what are we to do? I have talked to many of my Conservative friends and I think the general consensus is we have to get their attention. The TEA party was a start and instead of listening, they worked with the Democrats to brand all of those people as racists, haters, bigots, and crazies. So maybe we need to send a louder signal by removing our support and letting them lose a few elections.
I have chastised many of you that we need to work within the Party to enact change and to get our leaders back on the Conservative road. But alas, you cannot beat the machine when the machine lies, cheats, and steals leadership positions. So I now withdraw that charge, especially for myself. Each will have to make their own choice, but for me let me tell you my thoughts and my plans.
The party has made it clear to me that I am not welcome and they do not need me (or anyone in Campbell County either for that matter). They have disenfranchised the voters by bringing Democrats into the Party, electing Democrats to Party positions, and using Democrats to vote in Republican matters. They have stolen elections by outright fraud through miscounts and over-voting. As far as I am concerned, they have crossed the line and since they have brought the liberal Democrats into our midst and are acting like liberal Democrats, they are no different than the Democrat Party.
Each of you will have to make your own choice, but for me, I will throw my entire support behind Conservative candidates for any office and then I am done. And since we seem to have so few Conservative candidates in office or running for office, I guess I will get more time to tend to my crops and more money to spend on myself. It is a sad date in Virginia politics but as you can see from my attached article, I believe I have witnessed the death spiral of the Virginia Republican Party and National Republican Party begin.
Maybe if they lose the votes during the upcoming election and fail to take back the Senate, maybe if they lose the votes and lose more Virginia seats, maybe then they will get the message that they work for us, not the other way around.
For those Conservative candidates, do not worry, we will be there for you. For the RINOs out there that think we are going to help them win, I am not quite sure how to put it politely, so let me just say good luck.
Please feel free to share my comments, articles, and concerns with others. I will continue to support the Party of Reagan, but since that is no longer the Republican Party of today, I guess that will be the Conservative Party of the future, by whatever name it might go by. I will continue to write and share my thoughts online, but I am not sure I can continue to withhold my criticism of the Republican Party of today.
