Vote Republican — and Save the Country

It is difficult for an old liberal Democrat to utter such words as those. Vote Republican and save the country, indeed. Yet that is what I am now saying, and to make it even more emphatic, I am also suggesting that for the next two elections, all good people should consider voting a straight Republican ticket as a protest against the massive political sins of the Democrats. If enough voters did that, in addition to saving the country it might also save the Democratic Party from itself.

My old party has lost its soul and integrity in recent years, especially during the Obama era. It needs a crushing electoral defeat to focus its attention on its dangerous behavior.  Despite the terrible recent record of my old party and of Mr. Obama, they are master politicians and it is quite possible that they will recover and win the next two elections, unless there is a concerted effort by voters of all stripes — Republican, independent, and, yes, Democratic — to make a public commitment in advance that they will vote straight Republican tickets in 2014 and in 2016.

I do not love the Republican Party, but Obama and the Democrats have given me no alternative. I do not recognize my old party. They truly scare me.  As a result, in recent years I have embraced conservative values in my political behavior.

It is important to emphasize that voters of all backgrounds must now openly declare their intention to vote a straight Republican ticket in the next two elections. It gives me no joy to vote for so many Republicans, but this is the time to follow that old American tradition: throw the rascals out!  These Democratic rascals richly deserve that fate. Their actions while in power amount to a series of disasters for this country and its people — as well as for many people in other countries.

It was not for nothing that Adams wrote that only a moral and religious people would be able to abide under the new constitutional republic.

No people who tolerate, let alone condone, the slaughter of millions of the unborn will have any real interest in a future beyond the immediate gratification of their personal desires.

No people who tolerate the elevation of sexual immorality to the status of a "right" and who allow the most basic and necessary of human institutions - the family - to be destroyed in order to satisfy the demand of a tiny minority of perverts to feel better about themselves is going to care about societal or political norms or be inclined to expend any effort in defending them.

Abandon the social issues? Sure. Why not. A majority of the electorate has already done this and the result is evident in the kind of political, economic and moral leadership we see all around.

America is in decline and retreating on every front. This has happened many times before in history. I know of no nation that has ever reversed the trend and see no reason to assume that enough Americans can bring themselves to reverse this one. But by all means go ahead and vote the rascals out. Maybe it will work. More likely is that there will be a short-lived spike in conservative sentiment as in the period 1981 -1989 and then things will simply settle back on to the track to poverty, oppression and weakness.

It would be nice to be proven wrong about this. One can hope.

The insistence on a candidate who "inspires" is nonsensical, unless you want a right wing version of Obama. Leave inspiration in the realms of religion, art and culture where it belongs. Politicians whose charisma propels them into the presidency are to be viewed with deep suspicion. A candidate with experience, who has successfully made good decisions in an honest way, is what we need at this point.

Welcome to reality.

But beware. Most Republicans are merely the JV team for the Marxist big government mob.

A better approach...commit to voting for every outspoken advocate for Tea Party small government principles. For all down ticket races, if a Tea Party advocate doesn't make the final cut, hold your nose and vote Republican.

But for President, make it clear that you won't under any circumstances support or vote for a big government moderate, particularly Chris Christie, and especially if the Karl Rove gang slithers his type into the Republican nomination again. Because, if we don't make it abundantly clear that we will not support that type for President, then, for sure, Hillary (or worse) will be the next president. We've fallen into that trap half a dozen times before, and that, as much as anything else, is why we have the greatest con man in history playing the role of president of the formerly greatest country in history.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me six times, shame on me.

No amount of voting will solve this problem.

We didn't "vote" the King of England out. We put a gun to his head.

The country must be broken up. Into two, three parts, whatever. Only the complete ELIMINATION of the Federal Government will do!

ONLY THEN will we have to power to choose our own way! As a FREE PEOPLE.

Therefore ask every candidate this question: will they support the breakup of America, so that we can be free?

This war has already begun. It is unlike any previous. Don't expect armies to mass, and fight battles. Nope. Rather, prepare, for the day, when there is no more federal government, God will it so, His will be done.

What can you do? Support the breakup of America, publicly, ask your candidates about it, support the termination of the federal government, by talking about it.

Wrong Mr. Trebach! Vote Conservative, trust God above all & God will save the country. The GOP are nothing more than another arm of the Democrat Party. Voting Republican blindly & expecting instant change is one of the huge reasons we are where we are as a nation right now. Depending on Democrat-lite to fix all our problems is not only laughable, but stupid.

Both political parties, republicans and democrats, have been compromised by socialism, a forerunner to communism, and both are a threat to every American's life, liberty, and property. How can the moral sensible and patriotic American overcome two corrupted political parties which control America's political process. By upholding the wisdom of God...by keeping the Sabbath as a public assembly by all the people in order to review the laws of the land and magistrates who execute them. Only by keeping the God ordained weekly town home meeting can America's sovereign, the people, restore their government - brick by brick, top to bottom, until their government serves the interest of the American people instead of interests of designing politicians. Article VIII to the US Constitution restores the throne of the American people, the Sabbath. Read it: CHCAFE.WORDPRESS.com

A lot of Democrats are gleefully predicting that the Republicans have become a permanent minority party -- that anybody who isn't Caucasian and over 40 will either vote Democrat or not at all; that the Republicans have been successfully branded with the politically incorrect mark of Cain. Homophobic, misogynistic, evil, rich, and old. Time will tell, I suppose...

When the Calguns.net legal foundation went to Sacramento to protest the new raft of gun control before our state legislature, they found all three days the committee was in session had been reserved -- stolen -- by a group of pro-gun-control obstetricians from San Diego. Who reserved that three-day slot and got the permit to demonstrate outside the same day the committee session was scheduled? Organized for Action. Who bussed them up and paid for everything? Organized for Action. The soft fascists at the Federal and state levels combined their efforts to silence us and intimidate us. They didn't even try to hide their collusion. They reveled in their brute exercise of power. It was horrifying.

That's what it took for *me* to leave the Democrats. The rest of the country hasn't felt their evil hand on their necks yet. And by the time they do, as for us in the rapidly-failing state of California, it'll be too late.

After their attacks on conservatives like Cruz, and the Tea Party, the 'Pubbies are going to have to do a lot better than that. "We're not Democrats and we didn't vote for Obamacare" will only take you so far.

As far as I'm concerned there are minimal differences between the 'Pubbies and Demcrats. It amounts to the difference between letting on the gas a little and "pedal to metal" as we head over the cliff.

'Vote Repulbican - Save the Country" sounds like a nice campaign slogan but will the GOP be smart enough to pick up on it. At the rate they are going, I doubt it. Tea Party candidates but no more RINOs. If the GOP nominates another loser like McCain ( such as Christi), I may not vote which would be the first time in my elderly life. Why bother if they are only going to put a RINO in office.

No, write in the name of a GOOD candidate.


Can you imagine the effect if the RINO candidate were to lose by, say, 15%, and 20% of the votes were write-ins for Ted Cruz?

Something wrong with your hands, Mr. Trebach? The Democrat TEA party awaits you to get the movement going! While the Republican TEA party has been hard at work primarying incumbent RINOS, and ridding our party of progressive Republicans, what have YOU done to salvage YOUR party from progressive Democrats? You know, that Gadsden flag works on BOTH sides of the aisle. Quit b!tching and start-up a TEA party group.
