Return Of The RINO’s Mean Last Chance For GOP
Written by  {ga=JeffCrouere}

As Republicans prepare for a massive victory on Tuesday, party leaders should not misunderstand the message of the public. They should not feel too comfortable about their large margin of victory. Indeed, the GOP will be on a very short leash. If they return to the big government Republican policies of George W. Bush, their reign of power will be incredibly short-lived.

During the Bush years, the Republicans in Name Only (RINO’s) were in charge. In that era, a budget surplus turned into $458 billion in deficits, the government added entitlement programs like Medicare prescription drugs and social spending exploded with impractical programs like “No Child Left Behind.” In addition, under Bush, a brand new federal bureaucracy was created, the Department of Homeland Security.

In this election, voters do not want such big government solutions for our societal programs. In this election, voters are loudly and clearly calling for less government and a return to the bedrock constitutional principles which made this nation great. In this election, voters are not casting a ballot for the Republican Party, they are voting against the socialist agenda of Barack Obama. They are voting against a party that quadrupled the already large deficits of George W. Bush. They are voting against a party that added more to the national debt in 21 months than the nation accumulated in the first forty presidential administrations, spanning two hundred years.

Obama has pushed so far to the left that the country will naturally turn to the Republicans as a counterbalance to his agenda. Historically, the party out of power wins big in mid-term elections. In 1994, Republicans captured 52 house seats and took control of Congress for the first time since the Eisenhower years. In 2006, Republicans lost control of Congress as Democrats rode a wave of voter dissatisfaction with the Bush presidency.

However, with the Democrats in control of Congress, the last four years have been a nightmare for our country. The country has been in the midst of the worst economy since the Great Depression. Under Democratic leadership, the stock market has fallen, the trade and budget deficits have soared, unemployment has more than doubled, and a housing crisis is still gripping the entire nation.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is such a hated figure that there are “Fire Pelosi” rallies all across the country.  Pelosi and her leftist colleagues will be fired with just cause on Tuesday. However, Republicans cannot use this leadership opportunity to enact more sugar coated liberalism. As Ronald Reagan stated many times, the Republicans must raise “a banner of no pale pastels, but bold colors.”

In these troubled times, Americans want to see real action, not just rhetoric. They want to see the Republicans reduce the size of government, push for tax reduction and work to rollback the socialist programs of President Obama, especially the disastrous healthcare plan.

If Republicans do not use this opportunity to pursue a real conservative agenda and fight Obama on all of these important matters, they will never be given another chance for leadership. This is the party’s last chance to get it right. The tea party activists who have helped make this victory possible will not have much patience. If the GOP fails this time, the party will crumble and a new conservative party will emerge. The RINO’s have had their chance for success and have failed. It is now time for true conservatives to step forward and show the country that the timeless truths of the Founding Fathers can still work today and save our nation from total catastrophe.
