“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Socialist Party presidential candidate Norman Thomas

Dan Bognino, one of the few who understand

This is Dan Bongino and he's running for congress in Maryland-6th.

An open letter to the establishment GOP.

I am serving you with divorce papers. For those who are unaware of what happened, the establishment wing of the Party has openly declared war on the grassroots. For those who say this fight is hurting the Republican "brand" I reply; it is those on both sides of the aisle who have betrayed their principles in the name of Party, that have destroyed their "brands". 

As for the GOP, we used to stand for something; a lean, effective government, vibrant and robust individual liberty, and a passionate defense of the value of hard work and a commensurate respect for your wages by consistently fighting for your right to keep more of them. Where do you stand now? I know where the grassroots does. 

This is our Party and we will demonstrate to the people we hope to represent that there is a group of people out there who refuse to be part of any "managed decline". We will only be part of a spectacular American resurrection. 

America's best days are ahead and you and your fellow insiders and cronyists and "Party before country" loyalists, on both sides of the aisle, can bathe in your titles and power now but understand that I, and many others, have dedicated our lives to draining the dirty water from the bathtub. 

Consider yourself served.

I left the GOP around 2006 because I could no longer see much difference, if any, between the democrats and the establishment republicans who run the party. They're all DC insiders and they're all corrupt to the point that party loyalty and incumbency protection are the two most important items in their lives. The good of the country is way down the list.

Bognino understands the difference between the establishment GOP and the TEA Party conservatives. And you can toss us Libertarians into the mix of folks who're disgusted with the current GOP as much as we are with liberals.

I agree with him completely, but he has his work cut out for him. Most brain dead Americans now believe that limited government and personal responsibility are fanatical right wing beliefs. The left has linked the tea party to every far right social war, even though the tea party that I know concerns itself with primarily government spending and intrusion. Libertarian ideals, not social causes. The left controls the media, and it hard to cut through their lies and misinformation.
