As Senator Ted Cruz shrugs off the GOP establishment, some of whom actively, loudly and publicly fought against him this past weekend in his effort (along with others, notably Senators Mike Lee and Jeff Sessions) to force a vote on Obama’s disregard for immigration laws, the mainstream media again offered themselves up on the alter of Elizabeth Warren, who will likely be the presidential candidate for the socialist Democrat party.
In the meantime, Jeb Bush is positioning himself to run for president. The CBS affiliate in Washington reported Monday that Bush believes he would be a “good president.” The comments at the article say it all. At the time of this writing, not one positive comment was posted. Most of the comments indicate their distrust with the mainstream media and the establishment GOP.
“Here comes another presidential election where the corrupt MSM will work along with the corrupt DC establishment…” one commenter writes. Another laments, “We need a straight-talker who can out-shout the entire big media establishment and progressive influencers and speak directly to the people about rebuilding the country.” Still another asserts, “Another moderate republican? No thanks. They have done enough damage to the country along with the democrats…” This sentiment repeats itself over and over again.
It is clear that the unpopular GOP establishment is actively thwarting the efforts of those who are genuinely interested in restoring a limited government as envisioned by America’s founding fathers, despite the fact that Americans have been consistently saying that they believe government has gotten too big. In a very real way, the so-called “RINOs” are even more frightening then the socialist Democrat party, with their big government, nanny state promoting, race-baiting, identity politicking and social engineering ways.
At least Americans know the Democrats put party over principle.
Jeb Bush, an advocate of Common Core, who evidently met with the unpopular John McCain to strategize about how to run for President “without pandering to the party’s conservative base,” is a carbon copy of George W. Bush, who added trillions to the national debt. It should be noted that President Obama added an additional 70 percent to the national debt. President Obama once called Bush’s contribution to the national debt “unpatriotic.” President Obama voted against a raise in the debt ceiling in 2006, along with Harry Reid.
It is always infuriating when the federal government squanders tax-payer money. This unsustainable rate of spending is gross negligence and this author would say, treasonous.
More on Jeb Bush here, and the author will leave you with a speech Ted Cruz gave on the Senate floor on Friday, along with Jeb Bush’s declaration that illegal immigration is “an act of love.”
