Republican Establishment Declares War On GOP Voters

The following article by Scott Rasmussen offers an excellent description of the escalating battle in America between the citizenry on the ground and the political oligarchs in Washington D.C. He examines the Republican Party, which after nominating two of the worst candidates possible in the last two elections (and sabotaging Ron Paul) is in total crisis mode as a political party. From Rasmussen Reports:

Politico explained that while Washington Democrats have always viewed GOP voters as a problem, Washington Republicans “in many a post-election soul-searching session” have come to agree.

As seen from the halls of power, the problem is that Republican voters think it’s OK to replace incumbent senators and congressman who don’t represent the views of their constituents. In 2012, for example, Republican voters in Indiana dumped longtime Sen. Richard Lugar in a primary battle.

So, according to Politico, the Washington team is gearing up a new effort to protect incumbents and limit the ability of Republican voters to successfully challenge establishment candidates.

In the article, "The Republican Party is a rotting corpse. The sooner it is thrown into the dustbin of history and replaced by a Liberty/Constitutional Party the better."

I couldn't agree more!

I voted for Gary Johnson, because I did nor like Robamney and knew that 3 Balto counties run the electoral vote in this state.

Its sad when the GOP is realizing the tea baggers are killing the future of the party. The unwillingness of the elected officials to refuse to govern is sad yet comical. Keep proving your point tea baggers, your shooting yourself in the foot after biting the hands that have fed you. Well played idiots. Your in the elected position that will require comprimises to inspire change. Sadly you should have researched this before heading to Washington. Its a democracy not a hostage situation.
