A Requiem for Conservatism?

May 21, 2007

If Hillary and the Democrats are the socialists that conservatives make them out to be, all I can say is get ready for socialism in ’08. President Bush has obliterated the G.O.P. and any hopes or a conservative future. Our “leaders” have betrayed us. If the Republican party is the home for the conservative movement, then the conservative movement is dead, probably for all time.

David Frum put it best in this piece. I encourage you to read the whole thing, but this part stands out:

As we have seen in both the Harriet Miers fight and the Dubai ports deal, this White House’s first instinct when faced with dissent in the ranks is to insult and abuse its strongest supporters. “Sexist”; “elitist”; “registered bigots” were some of the terms cast during the previous fights. Brace yourselves for much, much worse. This is no way to win friends and influence people. And triggering an internecine party conflict on the eve of a difficult and dangerous election is no way to re-elect a damaged incumbent party.

And so ends our movement. Not with a bang, but with the death stroke of a presidential pen if Dubya signs the amnesty legislation.

If that happens, make no mistake: it’s over.

Dave all i ask is for you to do your own research and not just keep voting for the good old boys.I want real change and the only way to do that is to vote for someone who stands by what they say and not just what sounds good at the time.Also if you want to change any game in life you must change the players. Barrack Obama and Bobby Jindal or not part of the good old boys game plan.As far as grabbing my wallet ,between taxes and gas prices they can not grab much more.Btw thanks Chaddo, and i also agree with you on bush signing the amnesty legislation.

Thanks, Dave but don't be so quick to throw stones at Susan. Government actually was SMALLER under Bill Clinton, more illegals were exported, and Clinton actually spent less. Bush has destroyed any credibility we may have had. Tax increases? That's almost inevitable thanks to the crippling budget deficits imposed by Bush. Even Ben Stein has said that people like him should be taxed to pay for it. Ben Stein is a life long Republican conservative.

Chad you were never more correct. I didn't vote for either Bush as I knew that they were no friends of conservatives and they have proven that point on many occasions. The only hope that conservatives have is with either Fred Thompson or Rep. Tancredo, that would make an great pair to run in '08, If neither is slected by the GOP then it is over and even Rush Limbaugh should pack it in. But Susan what have you been smoking? Obama, he's is certainly no conservative and should the Dem win the White House and control Congress....well then grab your wallets and tuck your head between your legs, it's going to get ugly.
