Insecurities, Intolerance and Intransigeance. Welcome to the GOP.

Mr. and Mrs. Wuss
Mr and Mrs Wuss
I want you to take a good look at this picture. This is your speaker. Does this person make you proud, or want to scream in frustration? Is this the face of someone you want to represent you? Someone who looks healthy? Strong? Vibrant? Self-Confident? It is not for me. One look at the body language of these two and all I think of is, insecurity issues compounded by a partner with co-dependent ones. It does not take a psychology degree to see that something is wrong. Just looking at this makes me cringe and feel embarrassed for our party. Why would representatives be afraid of someone as listless and pathetic as John Boehner?

Voters, we all should be very angry, not sad. John Boehner answers to Obama. He does not answer to us. He hates us.  He is afraid of Obama's shadow, but has much bravado for his base. It is lamentable, despicable and unacceptable that he continue to do his job which has put us in a precarious and very weak situation.  John Boehner was losing support for his speakership and had to resort to bribing representatives with favors in exchange for votes to retain his position. Is that who you want for Speaker?  Why reward him for failing us? No, we do not have to deal with him. We must defy our party for the sake of the party and the country's survival.

John Boehner must be pressured to RESIGN!
Just a few days ago, at the Inaugural speech, Obama suggested "to the people" that Congress wasn't needed to pass an agenda on their behalf.  He had also expressed through a spokesman, that his goal was to destroy the Republican party.  Boehner has openly admitted to it. 

The picture of Mr. and Mrs. Wuss is not a joke. I am not doing this to poke fun at him or his marriage, but to make a point. Are we going to enable and reward the heart and actions of a feeble man? Are we going to embrace his sense of hopelessness and self-pity? Or are we are going to bring the party back to life with tough love and common sense measures.

This is a crisis of leadership that must be dealt with in a mature and serious manner by mature and serious people. Boehner's character flaws and style of leadership have produced positive results for our President's policies, not ours. That is why Obama loves him.  Let's take a hard look in the mirror and ask ourselves how much longer will it take to intervene and remove him? He is clearly not fit to lead.
Marco Rubio's so-called "Rising Star"
  Remember this line in the movie "City Hall"?
Even if his supporters don't like it, too much is at stake to be protective and in denial about Marco Rubio. He has been convinced that he is the "rising star" of the Republican Party. This expression makes me sick. He is not a rising star, he is a useful idiot.  He carrying water for a the loser with the agenda that our party doesn't want, an agenda that is being shoved down our throats that doesn't win votes.

I am not seeking to single out, mock or trash Senator Rubio.  I still like even love him because he is a fellow Cuban-American, but I know that his greatest weakness is his blind ambition, and it is being exploited by both the left and right on our side who continue to think, in all their self-unawareness, that they (via him) will have a winning message for 2016. It is beyond frustrating to witness.

Immigration Reform is not the answer to our problems. Hispanics do not vote on Immigration. It is a myth that needs to be dispelled.  Charismatic leaders with a winning Conservative message are. It is such a weak case, that he had to use the following sources to prove he has support:
1. Representative Paul Ryan: “Senator Rubio Is Exactly Right On The Need To Fix Our Broken Immigration System. I Support The Principles He’s Outlined

2. James Pethokoukis from American Enterprise Institute: “But The Rubio Plan Is A Thoughtful, Solid Start, And I Look Forward To Hearing More Details, Including The Parts Concerning Legal Immigration, High-Skill And Otherwise.”

3. Grover Norquist Of The Americans For Tax Reform Told Right Turn It Was ‘A Good Step In The Right Direction.

4. American Conservative Union’s Al Cardenas: “Kudos to @MarcoRubio for leading on immigration reform w/ conservative principles. Now the hard work begins. Don’t let libs get ahead."
Remember Al Cardenas? He was the one pushing for Jeb Bush to be drafted at last year's CPAC.
5.  Sean Hannity and Bill OReilly's comments were taken out of context to show "support".

I have a question for Marco: why not ask the humble opinion of those who voted for you what we think? 
The Republican "Insecurity" Council
I do not want to see the party split, but we are dealing with a GOP who has a mentality that it can do no wrong.  They are dense, self-unaware and intolerant of opposing views. Try posting this on the Republican Security Council's wall:

"GOP and BUSH Inc. IS AGAINST We-the-PEOPLE. Enough of the touchy-feely Bushy wishy washy RINO-ey distractions. Get With the PROGRAM! It's not about personality, it's about MESSAGE and the Message has not been delivered ~ conservative principles, not "reform conservatism" or "compassionate conservatism" or "immigration reform". None of those terms are in the Constitution or Bill of Rights. We need GOP Reform! Wake UP GOP Voters! Your party is against you."

How insecure!  The truth is, your GOP is a Bush, Inc. Enterprise (41, 43 and 45 coming soon). It is against We-the-People. It has not listened to us for 25 years. It's time to mercilessly let them know it will not be tolerated.

I shall end this rant and activist commentary with this question: Do you want to be the cowardly party of WUSS or the proud party of DEFY? It's up to you. I know who leads me.  I feel his spirit in me, and I challenge myself to overcome fear every day. We must speak up. We must have each others' backs. We are in the belly of the beast already so why not confront our fears and the enemy?  Self-preserve.  Stay healty.  Take your time.  But don't relent.  Defy to the end.
