A true Patriot is not loyal to any group other than fellow Americans. Some of those may not even want your fealty to their Liberty but one must fight for them nevertheless. We fight for our own by fighting for others. We owe no loyalty to a Party. Particularly one that no longer stands on it's own principles. Many so-called pundits today threaten that a conservative third party would simply ensure Democrat victories in perpetuity. Nothing could be further from the truth. But that is not really surprising. Truth is patient zero in the viral infection of Marxism.
Let us first be clear about Marxism. The primary tenets of Marxism are a progressive tax code, diminished property rights, government control of the means of production, (currently accomplished through tax and regulation) and the diminishment of individual rights for the perceived good of the collective. Now if you don't understand that this perfectly describes 98% of Congress and 100% of Democrats, then you need not read further. Your ignorance is your bliss and you may go. Kiss your chains and tell no one you were once my countryman. For those who do understand, consider:
It is perfectly clear to anyone who can withdraw themselves from the self-serving bubble of federal politics why the Grand Ole Party would not want a conservative third party. It is not that Democrats would win; it is simply that they (current GOP) would lose. Let's assume for this intellectual exercise that the T.E.A. party were to create a new national political party, we'll call it the TParty. This party would enlist candidates across the nation to run for office as Representatives and Senators. In conservative districts, the current GOP representative would choose whether to stay with the GOP or run as a TParty candidate. If the conservative vote is split; it simply means that neither candidate properly represents it's constituency. In most cases the most conservative candidate will be clear and they will win, GOP or TParty notwithstanding. In moderate districts, TParty candidates would create a new clear choice to some long-time Democrats who are less likely to be happy with the National Debt and the Liberal long-term fiscal strategy. Some of these districts could also go to TParty candidates.
In the end you will end up with roughly the same split with the House of Representatives. The only difference is that you will have a block of TParty candidates who are not beholden to the GOP establishment. These members will naturally caucus with the GOP; they certainly will not caucus with the Marxist Party that the Democrats have become. Again the difference is that as a block they will force the GOP to write more conservative legislation. A win, win, win for America.
In the Senate, there may initially be a cost to the GOP. However, the GOP has already proven incapable of controlling the Senate. In fact, when the GOP did briefly hold the Senate in recent years they squandered that opportunity by voting for more government, more regulation, more infringement of civil rights and more debt. Instead of tax and spend we got cut taxes and spend. However, once again, conservative TParty candidates will force GOP candidates to either embrace conservative principles or lose. What will occur is the People will finally have a CLEAR choice in candidates. The Marixst Democrat or the Patriot constitutionalist TParty candidate. The moderate GOP candidate will quickly become irrelevant. This is what they fear the most.
Once again the numbers in the Senate will remain mostly the same. It is always possible that it could sway one way or the other depending on current fiscal reality, i.e. ObamaCare. Once again a solid block of TParty Senators with no loyalty to GOP establishment will force a clear vote on bills by both the GOP and the Democrats. The GOP will be forced to choose; vote with the Constitutionalists or vote with the Marxists. Again, for America a clear win.
The only real possibility of a third party being a positive for Democrats is in the election of a President. If the TParty ran a presidential candidate, and nothing says they must do so at least initially, it could be a net positive for a Democrat nominee. There are exit polls that show some third party candidates actually pull from Democrats more, but regardless let us look at recent history. If the GOP is simply going to put up another liberal Republican aka Dole, McCain or Romney, then they are likely to lose anyway. The simple threat of a conservative third party presidential candidate may force the GOP to nominate a true conservative so that Americans will have a CLEAR choice in electing their national leader. Legislation passed by a TParty supported Congress will in all likelihood be signed by a future GOP president. Another win for Americans. It may be unnecessary for the TParty to run a presidential candidate initially.
The true threat of a third party to the establishment GOP is the potential for the GOP to eventually become irrelevant. This is their greatest fear. National politics for the current GOP has simply become about power, influence and money. They want the power, they want the contributions, they want the committee assignments, they want the corruption that lines their pockets and makes ALL politicians rich beyond their means to do so in the private sector. Losing all of that is their real fear. All those who oppose a conservative third party simply out themselves as Liberals/Progressives/Marxists/Democrats or whatever nom du jour that one chooses to apply to a statist politician these days.
We as Americans have a unique quality the world envy's beyond all else. We owe no loyalty to our rulers. We only owe loyalty to our Constitution and our Liberty. I will no longer support a candidate, a pundit or a Party that does not respect the Constitutional limits on federal power. To do so is to be disloyal to future progeny; mine and yours. I will fight to protect their Liberty whether they want it or not. What they do with it afterwards is on their head, not mine. Let us pray that there are enough Americans out there who share my faith and loyalty to our Founding Documents. May God continue to bless the United States of America!
