“Today is tomorrow; there are no more tomorrows.” I learned that expression in the Marine Corps many years ago. It reminded us that some days bring us to decisive points in history. In terms of the future of the Republican Party, “Today is tomorrow”; and what a small band of men and women do this morning will determine whether we as a nation can continue to have a true two-Party political system or not.
The stage for this crucial moment in history has been set by the fecklessness of current Speaker John Boehner and his cohorts in leadership positions. Over the past six years, to the great consternation of rank-and-file Republicans, they have moved closer and closer to the Democrat Party’s positions. Not even the historic victory delivering total control of Congress to Republicans has changed the minds and hearts of the Republican leadership.
On the contrary, they have brazenly lied to conservatives and mocked them both behind their back and to their face. Boehner has forced this showdown on us; now we can only watch and pray that God will protect America one more time.
Today’s vote for Speaker can bring us one of three possible outcomes. Only one will signal the continuation of America’s two-Party system of government; the other two will bring either immediate death to the Republican Party or a slow strangulation of the once powerful alternative to socialism.
In the best case, somehow a conservative will be elected Speaker; and the Republican Party will become the true representative of the American people in Washington.
In the second scenario, John Boehner is re-elected; and by outward appearances, nothing will change. Nevertheless, things will change because the support of the rank-and-file will begin a slow and steady decline that will culminate in the death of the Republican Party. While this will not be immediately recognizable, it will manifest in a stunning drop in turnout in 2016.
The final possible result of today’s vote is by far the worst of the three. If John Boehner’s lust for power so blinds him that he will do “anything” to keep it, he could appeal to Nancy Pelosi for Democrat votes to win re-election. Doing that would plunge America into a destructive form of European coalition government. It would deliver Chairmanships to Democrats and would immediately end the Republican Party as a factor in our government.
For America, the Republican Party, and us, today is tomorrow; there are no more tomorrows.
