Message to the GOP ‘Get-a-Longs’
Posted by Mike O on August 10, 2011
The North Texas Tea Party meeting tonight was interesting; we had a handful of party ‘get-a-long’ types trying to sell the Party machine line.
Folks, look at the graph below:
The GOP has got to clean up it’s OWN house as well because the increasing spending in the GOP years in control also added to the problem. And the leadership settling for the third, watered-down package in DC help lead us to the downgrade. The ‘get-a-long’ crew refuses to recognize the math. And that also goes for those in Austin as well. This last state budget was every bit as much full of fictitious numbers ans the budgets in DC; that HAS to change. Math is NOT subjective and making it so leads to far greater pain down the road. It is THAT reason we have to fight through the good-old-boy network, and replace enough people to get them to listen to cold , hard math and their constituents over the professional political class.
This battle is not personal, folks; it is on principle and on who the representatives actually represent; us or the ‘Austin machine’. It is not a personal insult to challenge a long-term incumbent in a primary; it is a decision that someones else’s policies would be better and to let the voters make that determination. I personally like many of the people to be opposed; I just want different policies. Things have to changes, or our grandchildren will emigrate to get jobs and get away from our bills, as I have warned about for well over 3 years (even before Obama).
I am sure the ‘Tag-a-longs’ reported back we are ‘unreasonable’. It ain’t us; it’s the numbers.
