The Slow Death of the Republican Party

By Brent Bozell III

The Grand Old Party is about to commit suicide.

All this talk about Trump this, and Trump that, masks a far bigger political controversy. The Republican Party leadership in Washington, D.C., has fundamentally betrayed its constituents and they are about to learn that they’ve been double-crossed — for years.

Every Republican candidate’s stock speech sounds the same, the thunderous roar about a government out of control, federal spending out of control (insert charts and graphs and why, if you stack hundred dollar bills, they will reach the edge of the universe), federal taxes out of control (insert comparisons to socialist countries), the federal bureaucracy out of control (insert metaphors about chains, yokes, and the like), the family shattered with federal funding of abortion a crime against humanity (watch for it — there! The heart-wrenching sob), and our military is emasculated.

Two more items were added to the menu, courtesy of Obama. Obamacare Will Be Repealed! and Illegal Immigration Will Not Stand!

In 2009, the Democrats controlled everything, partly due to the Republicans’ cowardice on Capitol Hill, and in part because of some of the most inept candidates and campaigns America has seen in years. The Obama folks could have played it safe but went for socialist gold, using the power of the legislative and the executive branches (and later the judiciary, thank you Justice Roberts) to advance their agenda.

    Yeah, yeah…….we’re all familiar with the “progression to powerlessness” that Bozell speaks of. In actuality, it’s been around for a long time, a best selling book was written about it. It’s called “The Peter Principle,” you rise to the level of your total incompetence. If the book is reprinted McConnell and Ryan’s pictures should be on the cover.
    Sad fact, Trump, like many who have not built up an immunity to diseases of a certain area, has been inflicted with “Swampidis” (Gee, I didn’t realize how hard this job is until I sat behind the desk!) Unless he can pull himself out of the quicksand soon he’ll become the “Creature from the Black Buffoon.”
    The question is, will the Tea Party and those that think like them mirror the ineptitude of the GOP? With a power changing election coming in 14 months it’s time for the people who made the power progression the Republicans currently enjoy (but refuse to use) rise again by beginning to push Tea Party candidates to primary the eunuchs that currently occupy seats in Congress but refuse to keep the promises that got them there. Otherwise, fold your tents, cocoon and watch your country die.
    As an aside, looking forward to the presidential election in 2020, please consider Rand Paul or Libertarian Austin Petersen.
