Latest Republican Failure A Surprise?

The capitulation of the leadership of the Republican Party in the showdown over what was sold as a “government shutdown” should not surprise anyone.

What is surprising is that, in light of the track record of the “conservative party”, so many people would expect any other result.

Isn’t this the “conservative” party that always folds its cards when the liberals/progressives/socialists go “all in”?

In fact, what has this party ever conserved, other than the liberal victories of its supposed adversary?

And is this anything new under the sun?

It might be instructive to examine what Robert Lewis Dabney wrote about these folks way back in 1897:

This is a party which never conserves anything. Its history has been that it demurs to each aggression of the progressive party, and aims to save its credit by a respectable amount of growling, but always acquiesces at last in the innovation. What was the resisted novelty of yesterday is today one of the accepted principles of conservatism; it is now conservative only in affecting to resist the next innovation, which will tomorrow be forced upon its timidity and will be succeeded by some third revolution; to be denounced and then adopted in its turn. American conservatism is merely the shadow that follows Radicalism as it moves forward towards perdition. It remains behind it, but never retards it, and always advances near its leader. …Its impotency is not hard, indeed, to explain. It is worthless because it is the conservatism of expediency only, and not of sturdy principle. It intends to risk nothing serious for the sake of the truth.

Anyone, including those who identify with the “Tea Party”, who love America and desire real reform, would do well to disengage themselves from the Republican Party and their brand of worthless, Godless, unprincipled conservatism.

Because with these folks, failure is never a surprise.

    Get ready for Amnesty, courtesy of the DC mafia masquerading as a false Left-Right paradigm in a false democratic republic. They're already greasing the skids for this once again because the last several times the GOP tried it, they didn't quite succeed. So, once again, it's time to try another attempt to ram it through again. When they finally do succeed, it's all over. It is hard to believe anybody still votes for either party in the District of Criminals. It's like the American People are so desperate that they will willingly take on Battered Wife Syndrome rather than face the brutal reality that we haven't been represented in the District of Criminals by either party in decades. The tragically sad part about all of this is it could have been changed overnight if the Christian churches had decided to ditch their 501(c)3 status and even started their own Third Party. Instead, these 99% of all Christian churches in the US, who still bow in obsequious obeisance to this heinous legislation that was originally sponsored by none other than LBJ, the despicable JFK, RFK, and MLK murderer, would rather please Man than Almighty God. that is why Judgment of Almighty God always comes first to the Church and then to the Land. The messages coming from the pulpits are designed to keep the Sheeple flocks all believing life is but a dream with a happy fairytale ending just like at the movies while the world around them is going to Hell in a handbasket at warp speed. There will be some serious Hell to pay for this for a lot of folks in the pulpits who instead of being protective good shepherds of their flocks have led their sheep to the slaughter while they fleece them dry!!!
