Jim DeMint, Marco Rubio and Arnold Ahlert who cites both of them have stated that if the Republicans don’t do their job this time, their party is dead, and good riddance.
Well, yes. But the trouble is, they don’t carry their argument to its logical conclusion, which is this:
- item – If the Republican Party doesn’t straighten up and execute the mandate it has just been given by The People, it is indeed dead. And, yes, good riddance, even if it was once the party of Abraham Lincoln.
- item – If the Republican Party expires, then the only organized alternative will be the ‘Democratic’ Party, with its private bullygirl clubs like SEIU. (And, as we know from long and painful experience, superior organization plus eagerness to engage in violence is the essence of a successful putsch.)
- item – If the ‘Democratic’ Party becomes the only game in town, Nancy
DzhugashviliPelosi will have gotten her dream of a “permanent ‘Democratic’ majority.”
- item – Given today’s composition and aims of the ‘Democratic’ Party, a “permanent ‘Democratic’ majority” means that democracy in America is dead, and worse.
- item – If democracy in America is dead, then it is also dead throughout the world.
And that, folks, is a bummer.
I wonder if the Repubs realize fully what responsibility had just devolved onto their shoulders. Also, given their spotty record, I wonder if their shoulders are big enough.
Someone please prove me wrong!
