Be Partisan Republicans – It will be our salvation

The newest tactic from the left (liberals, progressives, democrats, socialists, whatever) is to accuse Republicans of being “partisan.”  It isn’t new really, but they are whipping it out now because they don’t have anything else.  Essentially the argument is to leave “partisanship at the door” in order to achieve an agreement – in this case to resolve the debt “crisis.”  This is the Rodney King solution applied to an argument – “Can’t we all just get along?” they say. 

Well – in a word “No” apparently we can’t.  This anti-partisan line of argument ignores the fact that there are completely valid and rational reasons why there are political parties.  The people who are sitting in opposition to President Obama belong to the Republican Party and have reasoned thoughtful opinions that steer them to be Republicans.  In Virginia we couch those beliefs in a Republican Creed that outlines what we believe: 

We Believe:

That the free enterprise system is the most productive supplier of human needs and economic justice,

That all individuals are entitled to equal rights, justice, and opportunities and should assume their responsibilities as citizens in a free society,

That fiscal responsibility and budgetary restraints must be exercised at all levels of government,

That the Federal Government must preserve individual liberty by observing Constitutional limitations,

That peace is best preserved through a strong national defense,

That faith in God, as recognized by our Founding Fathers is essential to the moral fiber of the Nation.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to read those bullets and understand why Representative Eric Cantor is on the opposite side of each and every issue from the President.  President Obama, Representative Nancy Pelosi, and Majority Leader Harry Reid don’t believe any of those things.  Yet those core beliefs are what make a Republican a Republican.  Each one of those core values impacts every potential solution to the current debt crisis.  Therefore it is no more possible for Eric Cantor to leave “partisanship” at the door than it would be for him to leave his intellect, reason, or common sense. 

Perhaps Eric Cantor should ask the President to leave his socialist ideology at the door?

  1. Would he please? How about leaving his socialist ideology in Kenya?

  2. "Perhaps Eric Cantor should ask the President to leave his socialist ideology at the door?"

    LoL...he can't because promises of eternal freebies is what he needs to be reelected.

    He certainly won't garner any votes due to all that "leadership" he exhibits!

  3. I think that Margret Thatcher's quote is germane here: "The problem with Socialism is that sooner or later you run out of other people's money."

    We are out.
