By the Left Coast Rebel
But beyond my alarm for America's re-election of the the Collectivist, recently I've been more than vindicated in my distaste for elephant meat...
The utter stupidity of the Republican party in "negotiations" with re-elected King-American-Bankruptcy Obama -- both post- and pre-mortem (thank God) -- have been ever more alarming for me. It's not that I have any faith in the Republican party, it's just that I, -- even I -- didn't think they were necessarily that stupid.
But... just because I haven't been checking in here at LCR doesn't mean I've been silent, though. For example, I've been checking in with my local Tea Party group here in San Diego -- the SoCal Tax Revolt Coaltion -- on my thoughts re: the trumped-up "fiscal cliff" nonsense and teh GOP's tear-stained John "Boner's" capitulation in particular. I guess I'm an opinionated mofo but that's what makes me... well, a limited-government freak opinionated mofo. For example, I wrote this to Tea Party Patriots star Dawn Wildman regarding Boehner and useful idiots in the GOP in an email thread:
Low information Republican voters are just as misinformed as Dems, only they cheer on the "good guys" that increase spending almost as much as the Democrats (Boehner, anyone?). I'm so disgusted how, regardless of the Tea Party handing the GOP a comfortable majority in the House circa 2010, nothing has changed. In fact, Boner is probably even more corrupt, inept and disingenuous than those holding previous leadership.
I also, from time to time, text my good libertarian friend WC Varones on the state of the nation and all things apocalyptic. It's cathartic, yes that's for sure; but where does that put me going forward with speaking my mind in a public (net) sense? I'm not sure...
As I leave you, I thought I'd pass on something to chew on; a comment taken from Leslie Eastman's Legal Insurrection post on John Boehner:
If the Republican Party cannot be transformed, or cannot be transformed in time to have an effect on the larger problems; what reason is there to stay? If you remain, does staying implicate you as collaborating with the Institutional Republicans failure to act? Does staying in the Republican Party actively help resist the Left, when the Party will try to crush any attempt to resist?For now, I'm banking on the Libertarian Party though my local chapter is a joke. From hereto forward, I'm going to put my energies toward any candidate(s) that stands for individual liberty and limited government, however sadly few they may be.
Justin Amash: I've been looking at you.
What will the future bring? Damned if I know but there's always that Texas secession possibility, Costa Rica, Switzerland and Canada, no?
