Pat Buchanan to The GOP – Fight! If The Party Goes Down, Take the Country Down With You

Pat Buchanan has a message for the House Republicans. If you’re going to go down, go down fighting even if it means taking the country down with you.

In an op-ed, Buchanan referenced the recent polls that showed Republicans taking the blame for the ongoing government shutdown. And he advised Republicans to stand their ground on their pushed to defund or repeal Obamacare, the way Samson in the Bible stood his ground, killing himself and all those around him.

According to Gallup, approval of the Republican Party has sunk 10 points in two weeks to 28 percent, an all-time low. In the Wall Street Journal/NBC poll, approval of the GOP has fallen to 24 percent.

In the campaign to persuade America of their Big Lie – that the House Republicans shut down the government – the White House and its media chorus appear to have won this round.

Yet, the truth is the Republicans House has voted three times to keep open and to fund every agency, department and program of the U.S. government, except for Obamacare.

And they voted to kill that monstrosity but once.

Republicans should refuse to raise the white flag and insist on an honorable avenue of retreat.

And if Harry Reid’s Senate demands the GOP end the sequester on federal spending, or be blamed for a debt default, the party should, Samson-like, bring down the roof of the temple on everybody’s head.

This is an honorable battle lost, not a war.

I'm just tired of the lies and nonsense coming from the GOP, so this is my little contribution to combat the nonsense!

    What’s new? Its been the Tea Party’s /Norquist pledge all along! As big corporation out source our manufacturing base and jobs to globalization. Over the past 30 years. And all those folks that “believe” the tea party, is the defender, of Our Forefathers and Our Constitution! Mocking and abasing the conservative christian. lol

    Excerpts from Heritage Action for America letter to John Boehner and Eric Cantor.
    “It would be imprudent to do anything that shifts the focus from the Obama Administration to the “ideological differences” within the House Republican Conference”. [The ideological differences of ALEC and its Tea Party].
    “Make no mistake, “principled conservatives” [True Christian and Conservative Values] will still oppose bad policy [our obstructions and deregulations] if it comes to the
    floor. Rather than scheduling such legislation for consideration, we [Alex and
    its Tea Party] urge you to keep the attention focused on the Obama Administration.
    As the “Public Trust in their government continues to Erode”! There it is in Black and White. [The True Agenda] of destoring the public trust!!!!!

    It is incumbent upon us who support a smaller, less intrusive government to lead.

    That is to say!
    “We all Signed a Pledge [a Solemn Oath] laid against Our Constitutional Oath unto “We the People”. In the devaluation laid against Sovereignty. The well-being and self-governing of the American Family! The Gift, of a “Republic/Republicanism”!

    A solemn Oath too:
    Obstruct and hinder the “right to vote”. Obstruct and hinder the “referendum” in repealing the “people’s petition”.
    Cut or eliminate “veterans” benefits. Repeal or privatize the public contribution to Social Security and Medicare.
    Get rid of government student loans or double the interest rate.

    Get rid of corporate unemployment checks. Get rid of government grants and loans.

    Get rid of government and corporate pension plans. Down grade the governments “Credit Rating”.
    As it all started with corporate loopholes and their great tax exempt status! As it set the loss of 12 million jobs: in out sourcing them to Globalization. In a great economic melt down destroying the Peoples Trust. That brought us to where we are today. All sponsored by a Sign Pledge to ALEC and its’ Tea Party. In the very words “no one will be left behind”. Preceding a book called “no apologies”!
