National GOP Disgrace

A political party that should be attracting voters is repelling them. Why? Because that party (the Republican Party) is more interested in playing politics than in living up to its responsibility to govern constitutionally and protect citizens from any threat to our Constitutional Republic, whether of domestic or foreign origin.

With the pitiful performance of the petulant "president-on-permanent-vacation-and-fundraising-jaunt" combined with monumental corruption at the Department of Justice, the Internal Revenue Service, and the National Security Agency, and the sorry performance of Democrat legislators in both the House and Senate, this November should be shaping up as an election to usher in a new era of Republican political dominance in Congress.

While the House majority is secure, there is increasing doubt that the Republican Party (GOP) can outperform Democrats in their quest to control the Senate. It appears that some seats that should be easy wins for the GOP may actually be retained by the Democrat candidate. This is inexcusable.

How can this be happening?

The answer is simple. It is now evident that the GOP is more interested in playing politics than in living up to its responsibility to govern constitutionally and protect citizens from any threat to our Constitutional Republic, whether of domestic or foreign origin.

The current national GOP organization, from top to bottom, is uninspired, overly cautious, clueless about what people want from them, and lacking the tools required to successfully defend our Constitutional Republic from institutionalized corruption of the increasingly Marxist-Socialist Democrat Party.

So it is with this background that I decided to reply to a recent email solicitation (see notes below) for contributions to the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC).

My reply went like this:

Dear NRSC,

You ask, "Is this correct?”

Yes, it is.

I realize nobody reads these things, but it’s fun replying anyway as it provides a chance to air grievances.

Dear Sen. McConnell…

It might impress you to learn that YOU are a major reason why I no longer give to ANY national GOP organization. You and Rep. Boehner have managed to do more damage to the GOP than any Democrat could hope to.

You and your asinine attack on the Tea Party movement. Really!

Let’s see, the Tea Party movement stands on three principles (you should look up the meaning of the word “principle” since I doubt you have any clue what it means): (1) Constitutional governance; (2) sustainable fiscal policy; and (3) free-market economy.

You, on the other hand, ATTACK the Tea Party movement and, in so doing, you attack those principles upon which it stands.

Do you realize how much damage that does to the national GOP?

No, I doubt if you do. To do so requires a modicum of intelligence, perception, and humility, none of which seem to be among your traits, having been shoved aside by your stupidity, myopia, and hubris.

And you call yourself a good Republican?

No, Sen. McConnell, we are NOT as stupid as you and other national GOP “leaders” seem to believe.

And I am not your “friend”!

To donate to any national GOP group who would use either you or Rep. Boehner in an attempt to raise funds would be inconsistent with true Republican principles. So don’t expect much success from these ridiculous appeals.

So long as people like you and Boehner are considered GOP “leaders” of Congress, there will be no more financial support to the national GOP from us (or from many, many of our friends who openly share our views).

The number of these email appeals and their childish tone is indicative of the predicament you have created for the national GOP.

No amount of pleading can change the reality.

Neither you nor the national GOP will be receiving the financial support you seek from the vast number of completely “turned off” former staunch Republicans.

Think about that.

And, let me tell you one more thing… I really don’t care whether you win or lose in November. Yes, that’s right. You see, it has become apparent that, win or lose, the GOP is NOT going to do what is right for this country. You’ve had ample opportunity to take action and yet, you have done nothing because you think you can use the public’s disgust with Democrats and the dictatorial Obama to rally support for the insipid GOP. I will vote for my local representative because he is a conservative who supports the Tea Party movement. Were I a resident of your state, I would not vote for you. Same is true of Boehner… if I lived in his district, I would not vote for him. Why? Because good Republicans must surgically remove the cancer that has infected the national GOP, and a sound thrashing in an election they should win in landslide proportions is likely to be the only thing that will shake things up.

The big loser will not be the GOP. The big loser has already lost. Our nation is the big loser and it has already lost because it has no national party to champion our Constitutional Republic.

Think about this, guys. And shame on you! You are truly pathetic!

Gee, that really felt good! Thank you for providing the opportunity to vent.

The following email message soliciting a contribution was received from the NRSC:

On Aug 26, 2014, at 1:34 PM, Senator Mitch McConnell wrote:



Is this correct?

Chairman Jerry Moran just sent me a list of the NRSC Online Charter Members for 2014, and I didn’t see your name. Surely, this must be an error.

I know you’ve been one of the Republicans’ most loyal supporters in the past, but we have yet to see you on the books for 2014. With 71 days until Election Day, we need the resources to build winning campaigns and seize our historic opportunity to retake the United States Senate.

If you step up and donate today, we’ll stand with you – Senate Republicans will triple the impact of your donation, so every $1 you contribute will carry the impact of $4 for our campaigns.

For America,

Mitch McConnell
Senate Republican Leader

Biography - Bob Webster

Bob Webster, a 12th-generation descendent of both the Darte family (Connecticut, 1630s) and the Webster family (Massachusetts, 1630s) is a descendant of Daniel Webster's father, Revolutionary War patriot Ebenezer Webster, who served with General Washington. Bob has always had a strong interest in early American history, our Constitution, U.S. politics, and law. Politically he is a constitutional republican with objectivist and libertarian roots. He has faith in the ultimate triumph of truth and reason over deception and emotion. He is a strong believer in our Constitution as written and views the abandonment of constitutional restraint by the regressive Progressive movement as a great danger to our Republic. His favorite novel is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and believes it should be required reading for all high school students so they can appreciate the cost of tolerating the growth of unconstitutional crushingly powerful central government. He strongly believes, as our Constitution enshrines, that the interests of the individual should be held superior to the interests of the state.

A lifelong interest in meteorology and climatology spurred his strong interest in science. Bob earned his degree in Mathematics at Virginia Tech, graduating in 1964.
