This will be a quick postette because I have eleven simultaneous deadlines and I am already late for most of them…
I trust most of my readers are smiling because of the good news from the US election. But its even better than you might think : it could be good news if you are a sane conservative, as well as if you are a warm hearted Liberal. Well, this may in fact be obvious, in that, as several of my American chums have pointed out, if you look at Obama’s policies he is actually pretty middle of the road. Eisenhower Republican? Is that the term I am looking for?
No, what I mean is that the crisis facing American conservatism may be lurching to a conclusion. As many commentators stressed today, that may be demographically unavoidable because African Americans and Hispanic Americans just don’t vote Republican. But much more fun, the Tea Party are going even more nuts than normal. Here is their reaction . I quote :
The new America has been built on the backs of takers, that is, those who take the entitlements but, do not produce. The Takers won tonight.
However, the Takers didn’t act alone. The question is: if the republicans cannot beat Obama after all of his crimes, fraud and treachery then the Republican Party does not deserve to exist and must be dealt with
OK. So what we need is a two-pronged attack :
- We must bypass the lame stream media with truthful and accurate information.
- We must tell the republican elephant party they have proven themselves useless and therefore must get out of our way.
Yes ! If they exit the Republican Party, we lose the fascist nutters, and get back to good old fashioned patrician bastards. Much better.
