Pro-lifers! Stop being wh-res for the Republicans! January 23, 2015

I must say, I agree with just about everything in this piece at Redstate, which now commits itself to opposing Republican  politicians who portray themselves as pro-life to get elected and then reveal their pro-abort inclinations once they are safely in office.  And I agree, Renee Ellmers should be defeated in 2016 at just about any cost:

I know there are many angered by the title of this post, but the truth hurts. I cannot tell you the number of times I have been to political events where a politician kisses babies and talks Jesus so the pro-lifers in the crowd get thigh sweats and send the politician to Washington. When the politician takes up with his mistress or pays for an abortion or, as Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC), undermines the pro-life cause, they are just horrified.

But still they return predictable to the GOP for more abuse and disappointment.

Maybe it is time for a third party to give the GOP competition. Yesterday, the GOP threw its base under the bus. The Republicans who claim to support the pro-life movement, including Rep. Renee Ellmers  who claimed she’d vote for the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act after she ensured it would not pass, need to be beaten. Rep. Renee Ellmers , in particular, must be ruined politically even if it means the pro-life community sends a pro-abortion Democrat in her place. They’ll still have improved the seat by replacing Ellmers with someone who is not a damnable liar.In short, the pro-life movement must stop being the whores of the GOP. The Republican Leadership knows the pro-life movement is in its pocket. They have nowhere else to go. They have no one else to vote for. As much as Republicans look at black voters and tut-tut that they are being taken advantage of by a Democratic Party that knows black voters will not go anywhere, the Republicans are doing precisely the same to pro-life voters.

He’s right.  That’s exactly what Republicans are doing, and they’ve been doing it for over 30 years, ever since the pro-life movement solidified as a serious political movement.  Pro-lifers have proven time and again we can and do make substantial gains at the local and state level.  But there has been almost no progress at the national level, and that is entirely due to the unwillingness of the Republican party to make pro-life initiatives a priority. Heck, worse than that, they do nothing more than pay lip service to pro-life concerns and often take actions like this recent ones that are positively destructive of pro-life matters.
This country’s political system is broken.  It is all about keeping the wealthiest and most powerful happy, and gradually squeezing the middle class into non-existence.  The elites do what they want to do, and the concerns of the “little people” who elect them don’t really matter a whit.  They’ll tell us pretty lies to get elected, and then once they are do what they darn well please.  I don’t see any real solution to this – we’ve veered wildly from one party in power to another over the past 15 years and nothing at all has changed, our political system has become a kabuki theater – other than some truly unlikely 3rd party movement or broad-based and threatening independence movements from states like Texas and possibly a bunch of others.  Threatening the Union with dissolution might get the pols to behave but at this point I’m skeptical their capable of putting their self-interest aside for more than 30 seconds.

Thanks for posting Erick’s post. He’s one of the few solid Chistians left in conservative politics.

If only 30 or so house GOP members threaten to de-caucus (4-5 in Senate) the GOP would lose its power. That’s one idea.

If that doesn’t happen I think you’re right about other avenues of pressure.

Reblogged this on The Unfinished Tales of a Hunt County Catholic and commented:
Making good on that threat to dissolve the Union, though I care not what happens to the federal government after Texas acheives its independence, might ironically be the only way to ‘save’ it.

One thing you don’t do-even at any cost-is vote for a Democrat; if you have to, write in a prolife candidate; but if your conscience is wellformed it is a mortal sin to vote for any Democrat [and YES it can be a mortal sin to vote for some GOPers; but they are not the Party of Death]. see sinvotedemocrat.com.

The GOP is the “Party of Death” Enablers….REPUBLI-COWARDS. Voting for the lesser of 2 evils is still voting for evil. One is either with Christ in TOTALITY or one is against Christ in TOTALITY….it’s a package deal…otherwise it is the “cafeteria” scene.

Amen, Mr. McClung!

In sales and in politics one must beat what their competitor is offering. As the democrats continue to become worst, the republicans only have to be less so to get support.

Culture trumps politics, and I haven’t noticed many improvements at a national level there, so I am mentally prepared for more political setbacks.

There is no getting around the GOP. This is a fault of a democracy that has gotten really evil. All democracies degenerate into mob rule and ours is past that point. The only moral alternative to voting for the GOP is to vote for the Constitution Party or a write-in, but I am of the opinion that a vote for Romney was better than a vote for the Constitution Party. We are weak, ladies and gentlemen, so we must eat sawdust! We need to fast to win souls and hopefully bring a miracle to our increasingly evil country!

You do not have to vote Democrat to oppose RINOs. As others have said, simply vote 3rd party, write in, or don’t vote at all. I tend to think the third option best because, at this point, any participation in national level politics simply validates the entire evil edifice. In fact, RINOs seem to be the majority of the GOP, so might as well rename it to make it official and change the mascot.

Intentional secession is not likely to happen. More likely is secession by default (central government collapse, leaving those localities strong enough to do so rise from the ruins). In that sense, best strategy is to let the feds go to pot, strengthen the locals, and just let it happen.
