“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.”

National GOP expanding their tent

The GOP just announced that it has a $6 Million plan to help get 150 minorities and women elected to state and national seats as soon as possible.
I have to say this is about the best thing the GOP could do to remove the false stigma that conservatism is the movement of white males, to the intentional exclusion of blacks and women.
Lying democrats take that message to the bank every election, so if there are lots of women and blacks holding GOP seats, democrats can't really make that argument any more.
My suggestions would be to include some gay conservatives in the mix and then multiply that money by like 10x and see what they can get done in the next few election cycles.

One of my great frustrations in life is seeing the tenacity with which many people hold their party affiliations. (Think Ed.)

I know that nobody gets to be POTUS and few get to be congressmen and senators who are not selected in advance by people I will call The Unseen.

The Unseen allow into office only those whom they can control and only those with skeletons in their closet that can be held over their heads.

Thus, even if your hope is realized, and there is a resurgence of GOP fortunes, the U.S. will be no better off for it.

The Unseen do not care one whit about your welfare or mine or that of the nation. They care only for their own welfare. And wealth. And Power.

How I wish more people understood that. Then there might be hope for our country. As it is....

Ed said...

Isaac, contrary to your slander about me, I am no fan of the establishment GOP. However, because politicians do have some micro-control over my life, the secret super-constitutional cabal notwithstanding, I prefer conservatives to liberals.

Isaac A. Nussbaum said...

" I prefer conservatives to liberals. "

I understand. Just don't expect your nation or your fellow Americans to be better of for it.

Ed said...

Isaac, I distinguish between conservatives and republicans. In fact, I don't have much use for ideological, social conservatives.

So the conservatives currently holding power who please me, aren't all that common.

Isaac A. Nussbaum said...

I understand what you are saying, Ed. You think that there is a flavor of Republican that can and will make things better in America.

I respectfully suggest that cannot and will not happen. As the late, great George Carlin said, "Elections are there to give you the illusion of choice. You don't have any choice. You have owners."

The goal of The Unseen is to subsume America into a centralized, world-wide, authoritarian government where the ruling caste is cohesive and all other peoples are dominated, demoralized, and distracted.

The same people who pull Obama's strings will pull the next guy's strings, too, no matter who the next guy is. And the one after him. And the one after him.

The answers you and I seek will never be found in elective politics.

Ed said...

I'm not in total disagreement with that except to suggest that I'm not convinced there is a functioning cabal of secretive executives and string-pullers, but rather a loose collection of them who individually try mightily to achieve their goals through the illusion of elective politics.

Maybe the difference I draw is semantic, I just don't think they're all that organized except in limited areas such as world banking, military/industrial, and world energy supplies. Each of those groups have their own separate goals that count on the people being hoodwinked and fooled by kabuki-theater elections.

"...I'm not convinced there is a functioning cabal of secretive executives and string-pullers...."

You may not be convinced, Ed, but other men, men in a position to know, are convinced. Men such as...

"The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government of the U.S. since the days of Andrew Jackson." --President Franklin D. Roosevelt
“Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” -- David Rockefeller
Some of the biggest men in the U.S., in the field of commerce and manufacturing, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” –- Woodrow Wilson
"The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes." -- Benjamin Disraeli
“The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation. At the head is a small group of banking houses... This little coterie...runs our government for their own selfish ends.” -- John F. Hylan, Mayor of New York, 1918-1925
