I have never seen or witnessed such obnoxious behavior as I have this election season go around. The primary season was a break-up message from constituents to their longtime cheating RINO partners throughout the country. Yet, instead of leaving with grace and dignity, admitting that they’ve been unfaithful throughout the years and that their” significant others” deserve better, many are just becoming reptilian-like stalkers, deceived into believing that perhaps the country is just playing hard to get.
State by state, voters have made their choices. Some of them have been predictable in their results while others have left the Republicans In Name Only stunned, bruised, and in disbelief that they could have possibly been rejected. Marco Rubio, quickly becoming one of my political heroes, started the trend when, after being smeared and dismissed by the media as not standing a chance, won the Florida primary beating out the strangely orange-colored Charlie Crist. Yet, even though the Florida Republicans said, “Sorry, Charlie!,” Crist refused to leave the scene, deciding that Florida couldn’t possibly live without him and choosing to run as an Independent- possibly splitting votes and ruining the chance for a Republican to win the seat.
Next we watched Joe Miller upset the GOP establishment in Alaska and beat out Lisa Murkowski. The Murkowski name runs deep in Alaska with Lisa Murkowski only holding the seat because it was “gifted” to her by her father, who chose to run for Governor, and who was later beaten by Sarah Palin. Murkowski is just another bitter Republican, overtaken with an enormous sense of narcissism, a disease which clearly runs deep within the establishment party. I couldn’t have stated it better than Peter Roff when he wrote:
Murkowski’s decision to run as a write in candidate, after promising, while she was ahead in the polls that she would respect the wishes of the voters, is an angry and petulant act that shows utter contempt for the democratic process. It’s a not at all graceful attempt to change the rules of the game — after it has begun. But the big thing is that it represents, in the global sense, just what it is about the political class in Washington that has so many Americans angry and wanting real change in their government. It’s an inversion of the idea of noblesse oblige — nobility obliges – in that, having had the voters of her party say they prefer to have someone else represent them in the U.S. Senate she refuses to get out of the way. Marie Antoinette, call your office.
The Wall Street Journal reflects on this mentality of those who absolutely refuse to believe that their constituents would reject their leadership:
A conservative group called Let Freedom Ring is fighting back with a devilishly clever radio ad that reminds Alaska voters just how Ms. Murkowski first got to the Senate in 2002. Read as a fairytale, it tells the story of how her father “King Frank” appointed her to the Senate when he was governor. Polite Alaska voters let “Princess Lisa” keep the seat for a while, but when they decided they preferred someone else, she threw a tantrum and declared the seat “mine” and refused to let it go.
Moderates may posture that their refusal to acknowledge the will of primary voters is based on high principle. But it appears to be more and more rooted in a desire to retain office at all costs, while ignoring a clear decision by the Republican primary electorate that the power grabs of Obama Democrats demand the election of GOP officials with stiffer spines to oppose them.
Castle told the paper that he “probably” would not run, but isn’t ruling it out “simply because it’s there, simply because I’ve had a number of people who’ve asked that I do that.” If Castle were to run, he has until next Thursday, September 30, to declare his candidacy at the state Election Office. “I will consider it right up until the final moment but I’m not headed in that direction right now.”
This behavior reflects a deep rooted selfishness that has taken hold within both parties of the “ruling class” but is being put on public display within the Republican party because the Conservatives in our country are finally saying enough is enough. They have trade public service for cushy, lifetime careers. They have voted themselves so many raises and benefits that no longer are they there to temporarily SERVE the people but have turned into parasites FEEDING off the people. That being said… it’s time for RINO’s to go extinct!
