The GOP’s Losing Strategy


This article was written by Bob Livingston and originally published at Personal Liberty Digest

No group knows better how to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory than the Republican establishment. But this election cycle it seems they want to establish their losing strategy early so as to avoid any late-season drama.

Last Presidential cycle, the GOP ensured its defeat by abandoning conservatives. It followed its old script of nominating a milquetoast, faux-conservative warmonger in Mitt Romney, who was campaigning on attacking Iran and Syria and growing government. If that weren’t enough, it engaged in dirty tricks during the primary to defeat Ron Paul, the only conservative in the race.

The GOP’s actions during the primaries discouraged Paul supporters — composed of a mostly younger crowd just cutting their teeth in politics, civil libertarians and doves of a more leftist bent — from participating in an obviously rigged system. And if that weren’t enough to turn off the Paul supporters, the elites humiliated them on the convention floor in Tampa, Fla. Then, when Romney fell short on election night to a Barack Obama who received 3.6 million few votes than he did in 2008, the GOP establishment blamed Paul supporters and the conservative Tea Party for not turning out.

Since then, rather than court them, the GOP has done nothing but antagonize conservatives, libertarians and Tea Party adherents. Establishment Republicans have spit in the faces of rank-and-file conservatives. The establishment has ridiculed and slandered those on the right who have advocated for smaller government, an end to wars, defunding Obamacare, an end to drone attacks, the repeal of National Defense Authorization Act unlawful detention and the Patriot Act, and the cessation of National Security Agency spying. Among the invectives they’ve used: whacko birds, crazy, unpatriotic, ridiculous and bullies who need their noses punched.

Establishment Republicans abandoned Senator Rand Paul during his filibuster over drone attacks in the United States. As evidenced by the popular reaction Paul received both from people who traditionally vote Republican and the Ron Paul crowd who tend to vote libertarian if they vote at all, the elites were on the wrong side of the debate.

The old guard abandoned Senator Ted Cruz during his “filibuster” over Obamacare funding, choosing instead to give only lip service to opposing the law. And given the popular support Cruz received, the elites again opposed what they claim is their base.

During the government shutdown, Weeper of the House John Boehner made a tepid effort to appear conservative and allowed the House to make a few efforts at repealing Obamacare. But he caved and capitulated without getting a single concession from Obama and the Senate Democrats — again to the chagrin of true conservatives who wanted to see government spending reined in.

Karl Rove — author of George W. Bush’s leftist social and neocon war agenda and the losing strategy of the last two elections — has declared war on the Tea Party and is combining with crony capitalists to create a big money political machine to swamp any conservative opposition to conservative-in-name-only incumbents. Not only that, his group is going after conservative incumbents like Representative Steve King, who have stood up to the establishment Republican agenda.

And it’s not just Rove targeting the conservative base and the Tea Party. Republican Representative Steven LaTourette’s Main Street Partnership has two satellite groups — The Main Street Advocacy Fund and the Defending Main Street SuperPAC — planning to spend $8 million to back establishment Republicans who are facing Tea Party challenges in the upcoming election. The Main Street Partnership is funded by corporations and K-Street lobbyists. Its chief operating officer is Sarah Chamberlain Resnick, who also runs a spinoff group called the Main Street Individual Fund that received $50,000 from George Soros in 2002, and again in 2004.

The Defending Main Street SuperPAC received $400,000 from two unions in September and October: the International Union of Operating Engineers and Laborer’s International Union of North America.

I have told you before there is little difference between the two parties in Washington, D.C. They receive their funding from the same sources, and they are beholden to the same puppet masters. They are sociopaths whose sole job is to maintain the perks and privilege of office.

The scowling visage of the surly, tyrannical Representative Peter King is all over the media these days. He’s been appointed attack dog for the establishment. His mission is to paint everyone opposed to the surveillance state and neocon war machine as unpatriotic America-hating cranks set out for the Nation’s destruction. He and the establishment are trying to cover the fact that their military adventurism, cronyism/fascism and money printing are the cause of the economic malaise in this country.

Republican Representative Paul Ryan — another establishment “yes man” and darling — teamed with Democrat Senator Patty Murray in a budget deal that rolled back miniscule “sequester” cuts and added to the budget deficit. When conservatives cried “foul,” the House weeper — who owes his speakership to Tea Party efforts in 2010 and 2012 — said Tea Party and conservative groups had lost credibility and were using Congress and the American people for their own goals.

Now Boehner and the House leadership are pushing for an amnesty bill backed by President Barack Obama, Senate Democrats and, more importantly, Boehner’s U.S. Chamber of Commerce and corporatist handlers. The country currently has the lowest labor participation rate in 35 years. There are 1.5 million fewer Americans working today than in 2006, despite a population increase of 16 million people.

Yet the GOP establishment is advocating for a bill to bring millions of new workers into the country. GOP elites and party bosses claim an amnesty bill will make the Republican Party more attractive to Hispanics. Here’s what it will do (and the real reason they support it): It will provide corporations with a cheap labor pool, drive down wages and send more young people to the unemployment line and onto the government dole.

The GOP elite aren’t really interested in winning the Presidency, and they certainly aren’t interested in shrinking government. Their main aim is to run a crony protection racket and maintaining the fascist system of governance for as long as the money holds out. All other goals are secondary.





  1. “… the GOP ensured its defeat…”

    Actually it is the SAME party with two different names to fool the people.

    There is not difference in either party; only what they drum up to raise the emotions of the “voters” to make them think they are different and fighting for different things.

    Think about it. Bush 1 carried on with the preceding administration’s policies and added greatly to them, all against the US Constitution – our legitimate government. Clinton (different party) continued with Bush 1 policies and added to them, again against our legitimate government and “We the people of the United States”. Bush 2 (different party) continued with Clinton’s policies and added to them. Obama (different party) continued with Bush 2’s policies and is trying his best to end our legitimate government, destroy the USA and her people. His policies include 1st Degree Murder every week committed by him and a group OPENLY, being indicted as a War Criminal (so were all the others listed plus most of their administrations, etc), ID Theft, and MANY more criminal and civil offenses for which anyone else, including any US president before Reagan would have been charged and prosecuted for.

    It is each state’s Militia that is Constitutionally and LAWFULLY charged with the defense of our nation against domestic enemies (US Constitution, Article 1, Clause 15: “To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and REPEL
    INVASIONS” & Clause 16: “To provide for organizing, ARMING, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress”.

    Each state’s Militia is made up of “We the People”. The Militia has as its constitutionally assigned duties to:
    Enforce and keep the “Laws of the Union” (constitutional laws ONLY),
    “to suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions”.

    Do NOT follow a “Party”. Your loyalty and allegiance is to the US Constitution and YOUR state’s Constitution not a party or any other group because they can, and ARE, working to destroy our nation and it’s people.

    Work to get rid of machine voting, REFUSE to allow it used in your state so that YOUR vote will really count. All counts MUST be made in the USA and must be able to be verified – that is already lawful but NOT enforced.

  2. Oh, and they both, Dems and Repubs, PUT people into place through Election Fraud, a crime.

    The 2008 Democratic Nominating Committee (DNC) document did not include language stating that Obama was qualified to be a candidate. The 2008 Republican Nominating Committee (RNC) document did, as is normal. This shows that the DNC knew that Obama was not qualified, or why change the form?

    South Bend, Indiana jury found that election fraud put President Obama and Hillary Clinton on the presidential primary ballot in Indiana in the 2008 election.

    And the 2008 and particularly the 2012 election had fraud committed on both sides.

    Bush 1 got in the first time by the courts (unlawfully), and the 2nd by election fraud. Clinton got put into place by election fraud. Bush 2 got put into place by election fraud. Obama got put into place by election fraud.

    All documented – unfortunately not charged and prosecuted for it. Research it, but NOT using “Google” who sold out our nation a long time ago. Try as your search engine. It does use “Google” but can do so surreptitiously.

  3. What you are seeing is a complete corporate-totalitarian state being
    built upon the ruins of the Republic. With The Communist Manifesto as
    a blueprint the banks and the corporate elite are looting the country
    and enslaving the American people with no significant opposition. Our
    young people have no future. America has been destroyed, the
    Constituion and Bill of Rights have faded into history,
    and most people
    never even understood the issues. So much for an informed electorate,
    free elections and sworn officers. Most of those who took took
    the oath never bothered to read the documents they swore to defend.
    The Communist takeover of America, done through fraud and intimidation,
    is almost complete. The only thing left is hyperinflation which will set the stage
    for the collapse and implementation of a declared new government.
    As Kruschev said “America will fall without fireing a shot”.

  4. An “R” on ones lapel means absolutely nothing! -One of
    my great regrets is that I voted straight Republican
    through 1999.

    Republican versus Democrat. –What a joke.

    The Constitution, freedom and liberty, American
    independence and sovereignty are what counts.

    Up until Barack Obama I thought that George Bush, Jr.
    was the worst President in my lifetime, but Barack
    Obama has proved me wrong. But has he? –George Bush
    put everything into place.

    That George Bush was better or worse than Barack Obama
    means “absolutely” nothing! They both have, and are,
    destroying the American Republic. One could write a
    book on how much they really are alike.

    And besides:
    “The purpose of a President is not to wield power, but
    to attract the attention away from those who wield the

  5. @ Antoniosucre, “America has been destroyed, the Constituion and Bill of Rights have faded into history, and most people never even understood the issues”

    Actually the US Constitution is alive and well. It is UNDER ATTACK BY DOMESTIC ENEMIES. What is “sick” here is all oathtakers who did not keep their oaths to SUPPORT AND DEFEND THE US CONSTITUTION BEFORE THE DUTIES OF THE POSITION OR OFFICE THEY WERE OCCUPYING.

    “What is “sick” is that “We the People” have been DELIBERATELY misinformed by by those foreign and domestic enemies at what at the time was a naive people. They changed education ti reflect teaching UN American ideas and concepts. They took over the Media, which is a cartel and unlawful. Plus it shows that those who have been running the FCC are TRAITORS to our nation because their very position they hold was to STOP all monopolies and cartels. They took over EVERY type of public discourse: radio, movies, TC, news, music, everything. WE allowed it.

    Who is sent to make sure that the movies, etc are saying or showing what they want to further manipulate us – the higher ups in the military (they deserve no rank as they are TRAITORS to the USA and her people).

    It is not that they failed, it is that WE failed our type of government, WE failed ourselves because WE ARE THE GOVERNMENT! Start taking responsibility for what is going in your state, in our country. YOU are a part of the problem, change that and become a part of the solution!
