Why The Hell Should Anyone Vote For The Republican Party?

by:  John Hawkins

The only answer anyone ever seems to be able to offer to that question these days is, "Because the Democrats are worse." However, the problem with being the lesser of two evils is that you're still an evil.

Well, what about the GOP's principles?

What about them?

Name something that the Republican Party stands for today.

Low taxes? We've won that battle so thoroughly that 47% of Americans don't pay income taxes even though we have a trillion dollar deficit. Meanwhile, many of the richest Americans are comfortable enough with what they're paying to the government that they're supporting Democrats who are pledging to raise their taxes. In other words, we're a victim of our own success.

Law and order? Americans in bad neighborhoods who are suffering terribly because of gangs and drugs are apparently of no interest whatsoever to any Republicans in charge of anything judging by the amount of time they spend discussing this issue -- which is close to zero. Additionally, the biggest law and order issue on the table today is illegal immigration, where the Republican Party is working hand and glove with the Democrats to reward 11 million people who are here illegally with amnesty.

A strong defense? What good is being strong without being smart? Most of our military "allies" are nearly useless in a fight, we're giving hundreds of millions of dollars to nations that hate our guts, and the Bush Administration put us a in a terrible situation in Iraq by invading without having the slightest idea that our troops would end up policing the country for nearly a decade. Most Republicans in D.C. seem unfazed by those problems.

FOLLOWING the vote on Sec. of Defense Chuck Hagel's comfirmation, Paul told reporters in the Capitol Building, “There are many things I disagree with Chuck Hagel on, there are many things I disagree with John Kerry on, there are very few things I agree with the president on, but the president gets to choose political appointees.”

"There are many things I disagree with Chuck Hagel on, there are many things I disagree with John Kerry on, there are  " whole lot of things" I disagree with the president on, but he get to choose the political scum bag appointees."

I'm Done Here

Keep in mind that Paul is being diplomatic here--he's eyeing a Presidential run in 2016, so you have to expect some amount of understatement and diplomatic language.  He needs to appear "Presidential" to as many people as possible in the coming 3 years.  Personally, the more he rips the left to shreds and says exactly what he thinks, the more likely I am to vote for him, but I guess not everyone will feel the same.

Big Deal he rips the Left,Then He turns around and VOTES with the left. Count me out.We don't need another cookie cutter.There is too much at stake.

So who is left that you will vote for?  Nobody?  This sort of idealogue tantrum is exactly what loses elections and hands victory to progressives and communists.  To characterize Paul as a cookie cutter RINO based on his view of cabinet nominations--all in all a very minor issue with no hope of fighting for a better nominee--is just plain nonsense.  Feel free to suggest who you feel does have a flawless voting record that makes them worthy of support, and then when they vote against your wishes once or twice down the road, we can throw them on the garbage pile and figure out who's next on the list.

And that is where I have an issue!! APPOINTEES!! KING GEORGE OBAMA -CHAVEZJr, WAS APPOINTED!! The votes didn't matter SQUAT!!!!! We have to limit 'APPOINTMENTS TO OFFICES IN GOVERNMENT!! ENOUGH!!  LIMIT, 'EXECUTIVE ORDERS'!! LIMIT EXECUTIVE 'ACTIONS', whis is basically the samr as'ORDERS",A PEICE OF PAPER!! KING OBAMA ISN'T RESPONSIBLE FOR A DAMN THING!! BUT THE B.S. HE GIVE US TAT COMES FOM HIS FRAUD MOUTH!! LOL!! Larry K.Parent,Naples,FL. P.S. NO ONE with an once of brain, should vote DEMONCAT!! It should be named ,'THE DEMOCRAT SOCIALIST PARTY'. You can throw in anything you want from there!!

People such as I who don't pay taxes are in that income bracket that falls below the poverty line and you can't squeeze blood out of a turnip.  I would love to have been able to get a full-time permanent job with health benefits like most other folks in order to support myself - unfortunately, that never happened due to my mobility impairment and the total absence of placement assistance that is listed in the paperwork of DRS as being offered once the person being educated at taxpayer expense graduates (I had a 3.54, graduated magna cum laude way back in 1999, still no full time permanent employment by which to become self-supporting as promised upon being sent to college at taxpayer expense in the first place).    Yes it is a good idea to do something about the illegals in America today but that would be worthless until we get the border secured - let's get first things first toward actually resolving the matter.   Attempting to suggest that there is no difference between the parties is an error which fails to examine the vast differences in party platforms.  At least the Republican platform takes a stand toward respecting the sanctity of human life and protecting it, something which you will not see in the party that is now determined to force us to subsidize the shedding of innocent blood (which God hates) through Obamacare paying for abortion and euthanasia.  Anyone blind enough to fail to see those basic differences must (in  my opinion)  have been listening to too many clueless liberals lately.

Here is another reason NOT to ever support the GOP ever again IMO. . .they are just as destructive as the Dems and do not listen to their constituents!

ALERT ALERT

 REVEALED: Here’s What Dirty Cop Mueller And His Team
Of Liberal Hack Lawyers Are Costing Taxpayers Per Month

The Mueller ‘Russia’ investigation was built on a foundation of lies and cost taxpayers $6.7 million within the first 5 months!
 
Thanks to AG Sessions for recusing himself, corrupt swamp creature Rosenstein appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to target Trump and his team in what is the greatest witch hunt in US political history.

To add insult to injury, Americans are paying over $1 million a month, watching in horror as an innocent president is investigated yet the real criminals–Hillary, Lynch, Obama, Holder, Rice, McCabe, Comey et al walk freely.

The Justice Department released a report Tuesday detailing the cost of Mueller’s investigation from May 17th 2017-Sept 30th 2017.

In four and a half months, American tax payers have paid MILLIONS of dollars for Mueller’s hacks.

Expenses include:

Direct and Reimbursed Expenditures (note 1)
Personnel Compensation and Benefits (note 2) $1,709,597
Travel and Transportation of Persons (note 3) 223,643
Transportation of Things 156
Rent, Communications, and Utilities 362,550
Contractual Services (note 4) 157,339
Supplies and Materials 26,442
Acquisition of Equipment (note 5) 733,969
Total SCO Expenditures (note 6) $ 3,213,695

Mueller’s witch hunt also cost the Justice Department about $3.5 million on work attributable to the ‘Russia’ investigation, according to the DOJ report, totaling $6.7 million!

Americans are mad as hell!

We are paying millions of dollars to pay Trump-hating lawyers who are hell bent on taking down a president who won the election in an electoral landslide all because of a Hillary-funded garbage dossier!

One of the FBI agents was recently removed for sending anti-Trump text messages to an FBI lawyer with whom he was having an affair with.

Another Mueller hack was just revealed to have praised Sally Yates for defying Trump’s travel ban.

In an email obtained by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, Andrew Weissmann, special counsel Robert Mueller’s right hand man, praised then-acting attorney general Sally Yates for standing up to President Trump’s travel ban order.

We have been reporting on Mueller’s liberal dream team for months.
So have numerous other media outlets.

We reported in August that the entire team was Trump haters. Here is a summary of the Mueller team –
