A View from the Altar / Message to the GOP: Don’t blow it this time — instead, do nothing

Message to the GOP: Don’t blow it this time — instead, do nothing

Dear GOP,

We know that all you got last night was control of the House of Representatives.  Mr. Obama is regrettably still the president.  Harry Reid is still in the Senate, and the Senate is still in Democrat hands.  That means there is only so much you can do.  We understand that.

However, our Constitution gives control of the nation’s finances to the House of Representatives.  Article 1, Section 7 says, “All bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives.”  And this is wonderful news.  It means that when National Public Radio comes to you for money, all you have to do is just sit there doing nothing.  How great is this when, to gain a smashing victory for Constitutional conservatism, doing nothing at all is like dropping a fiscal atom bomb!

So here’s the deal:  The red states, the conservatives in the GOP, and the Tea Party are sending you guys to Washington to do three things.  You can accomplish all three by doing nothing at all.  First, don’t ever write a check for anything having to do with ObamaCare.  Just leave its financial roots hanging in the cool, dry air.  Second, don’t ever write a check that would enlarge the federal debt and deficit.  Third, don’t write a check that advances the liberal agenda.

Money is the lifeblood of politics.  To gain the gratitude of the nation, indeed to save the republic and its battle won freedoms, all you have to do is… nothing at all.

You haven’t won this election so you could do your RINO thing again by going along and getting along with the liberal establishment up there.  When you tie up their money, they will all scream like Gollum on his leash, “It burns us!  It burns us!”  They will call you every nasty name.  They will exclude you from their dinner parties.  They will paint you in the media as wack-job extremists.  Be assured that this is sweet, sweet music in the ears of your voters.  We haven’t elected you for cooperating with the liberal establishment.  Those people have subverted our Constitution and our freedoms.  You’re elected to push back hard.  You’ve only got one weapon, the nation’s checkbook.  So use it.

And understand this.  This is a historic time.  If you fail us now by letting liberalism put its Marxist hands into the nation’s checkbook, you will lose big in 2012.  The Tea Party will throw you out like a loaded diaper, and there’s a good chance we’ll never get our Constitution back, and history will remember you as fools or cowards or both.  Please don’t blow it this time.
