Sorry About the Light Posting  

Friday, May 27, 2005

Hasn't been much time to post. Sorry. I'm in the process of joining a new band and the preparation is pretty intense. I've got to be ready to hit the casinos by mid-June.

Not that there's been too much to post on or rant about. The Donks are still up to their bullshit, and the Republicrats are still kissing their asses as if the election had gone the other way.

Maybe we New Federalists should start our own party, though I don't know if that would be a good idea. Dividing the conservative vote could put the socialists back in power. The way things are now, all that really has to happen is some spine-growing on the part of the Republicans. No election has to be won in order to work towards a constitutional America; the conservatives merely need to stand up and defend the constitution and the America the Founders envisioned. In other words, they must act like they won the election.

My thoughts on this, as posted on Rocker and Sage last month in a comment:

The demise of the Democratic Party is happening right before our very eyes (Baby What a Big Surprise). It will be very interesting, indeed, to see what the Republican Party does with the situation. One of two things will have to happen:

1. The party will do as I have enumerated above, speeding up the repeal of socialism, and placing preventive provisions into the Constitution through Amendment.

or 2. The party will miss the opportunity to empower the people, and a more conservative party will rise up as the conservative alternative. There are a few of these already out there, such as the Libertarian Party and the Constitution Party. Both have the same (very limited) potential at this point in time. More likely, however, I see a coalition of such parties forming and coming together into a new party that will serve as the more conservative alternative if the Republicans choose this course of action. The new party would then be charged with speeding up the repeal of socialism, and placing preventive provisions into the Constitution through Amendment.

The way I see it today, the Republican Party is in a very unique situation. They are the ones writing the history books right now, as they are the only political party that is really relevant from a political standpoint. They are the ones who are going to be choosing which course of action to take, and it will be very interesting to see what they choose to do.

My hope is that they will choose option 1, and I think the leadership of the party will be wise enough to see the writing on the wall and do that. As of right now, though, there is still plenty of potential for the party to swing the other way.

Just a few thoughts.
