The Republican Party’s leaders have functioned as junior members of America’s single ruling party, the UniParty. Acting as the proverbial cockboat in the wake of the Democrats’ man-of-war, they have made Democratic priorities their own when the White House and the Congress were in the hands of Republicans as well as in those of Democrats, and when control has been mixed. The UniParty, the party of government, the party of Ins, continues to consist of the same people. The Outs are always the same people too: American conservatives. They don’t have a party.
Whatever differences exist within the Uniparty, between Republican John Boehner and Democrat Nancy Pelosi, between Republican Mitch McConnell and Democrat Harry Reid, get worked out behind closed doors. Those differences are narrow. The latest negotiations were over some $80 billion out of three trillion dollars in spending. The bipartisan negotiators did not let into the room any of the major issues that concern Americans. Not Obamacare, not racial preferences, not religious liberty, not endless no-win wars. The UniParty is unanimous: more of the same!
Hence, so long as the Uniparty exists, mere voters will have no way of affecting what the government does.
Breaking up the Uniparty, means breaking the Democrats’ hold on non- Democrat congressmen and senators. The only way to do that is to break the Republican leadership’s hold on other Republicans and on the Republican label. That in turn requires using the primaries to screen out UniParty people.
There is more, and you should click on through and read the whole thing, but this is the nut. And he’s right. We have to take back the GOP for the Constitution and liberty, and one of the most effective ways to do that will be to primary every damned unprincipled Ruling Party Rino into oblivion.
Let’s hang as many RINO heads on the wall as we can next year. I’ll make one exception to the primary strategy, though, in the case of John Boehner: If we can’t mount a successful primary challenge against him, then we should strategically support his Democrat opponent with our funds and votes. The object is to remove him from office. I don’t really care how we get that job done as long as he’s no longer in Congress after next year’s elections.
