GOPs Secret Plan to Rid Themselves of the Tea Party


The GOP’s Top Secret Plan to Rid Themselves of the Tea Party

A few weeks ago the New York Times announced that “the top ten percent of American earners took home more than half of our country’s total income – the highest recorded level ever.” A little over a week later the GOP-controlled House of Representatives passed a bill to cut food stamps by 39 billion dollars. Now the House is trying to pass a bill that will gut the Affordable Care Act even though the ACA is a law that will ensure everyone, even the poor, will have health insurance. It will be taking place in a only few months. Is this a full scale war on the poor like several news sources say? Sure, but in the background is a coordinated effort by the senior officials in the GOP to reboot their party by offering up a sacrifice.

After failing to stop President Obama’s reelection the Republican Party has fallen apart and has lost its identity. President Obama has painted the republicans as a do nothing congress. They are on track to becoming the least productive congress in recent history. When they do pass legislation it’s some last minute bullshit like the CR they’re trying to pass now, but mostly the House of Representatives goes about their ineffectual posturing. For example, they’ve voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act forty fucking times even though they know it will never get through the democrat-controlled Senate. Why are we paying these idiots’ salaries?

Honestly what have the Republicans done since Bush? I know that he is the one who should not be named in political coverage, but in all reality he is the one who fucked the GOP. W let the extreme right wing idiots believe they can have a voice in something as important as ruling the free world and they took the Colors and they’ve been running with them every since. Putting a man of below-average intelligence in the White House opened the flood gates and made the Tea Party a power in the world of politics. Bush was easy enough for Rove and Cheney to control, but now that he’s gone we’re left to deal with his legacy, and that means idiots like Ted Cruz who wants to take a law that we already passed and defund it. He wants to force the choice to either gut the ACA or shutdown the Federal Government. Sure, Speaker Boehner is actually right when he says that the government won’t really shutdown, but what he isn’t telling you is only the services deemed necessary for the security of our nation will be funded. Of course that means all these shitheads will get there paychecks but it will affect the pay of our service men and women, social security, and you think the VA is messed up now? Wait until we defund these federal bureaucracies. Remember the Sequester? This will be a lot worse.

The whole place is going shithouse and the senior “leadership” of the Grand Ol’ Party knows it. They’ve known it for a while now, but don’t underestimate what old rich white men with a shit-ton of power will do to keep that power. It’s their American Drug and they need it more than a smack-head needs H. They’ve made a career out of prostituting themselves so what other extreme measures can they possibly do to keep it? A human sacrifice.

Boehner has orchestrated an attempt to defund the ACA.  Harry Reid believes that this new CR or (continued resolution) is unreasonable and illogical. “Democrats stand ready to work with reasonable people who want to improve it, but Republican attempts to take an entire law hostage simply to appease the Tea Party anarchists are outrageous, irresponsible and futile.”

If, by some miracle, they succeed, this shutdown will make the Sequester feel insignificant. Many senior republicans like McCain have come right out against it calling it a moronic idea, but what people don’t see is if this attempt fails Boehner can pin it all on Ted Cruz. For some reason this Texas Republican Freshman Senator has become the focal point of the fight, a fight they have little chance of winning. How and when did this happen? By the Twitter feed of anonymous republican leadership aide. Cruz picked up the Colors and he’s running with it. On the floor of the Senate he announced to God and everybody how he doesn’t trust the Republican Party, his own party. That may be like comparing al-Qaeda to the Islam religion, but however you look at it Cruz is the offspring of the GOP.

When they lose this battle not only will Cruz be the sacrificial lamb, but Boehner can take it a step further and demonize this new Tea Party/Freshmen Senator crowd and in his mind put things back to pre-Obama politics. Saturn devours his own children in hopes of wrestling the power back, but can he successfully rid the GOP of the Tea Party? To quote Sarah Palin when talking about Paul Revere, “he who warned the British that they weren’t going to be taking away our arms, by ringing those bells and making sure, as he is riding his horse through town, to send those warning shots and bells, that we were going to be secure and we were going to be free.” Some bells can’t be unrung.
