The groomed politician is ruining America

If you want to fully understand the total mess in Washington-follow local politics…..because this is where it all starts. To say that it’s “like” high-school, would be a huge understatement- it is high school….except there’s a helluva lot more ego involved! The ‘cool’ group that has been in play since Reagan left office in the Republican Party-is known as The Establishment. They decide who represents them on a local, state and national level. To get in the cool group there are a series of things you must do: show up at every local event and be seen, give money to the party, and most importantly suck up to the “behind the scene’s players”….these are the guys that essentially pick who they want as a candidate. I am sorry to inform you if you thought that YOU pick….no….no you don’t…….the “behind the scenes” players pick….then they parade their candidate around as the ‘chosen’ one. The “behind the scenes player’s” convince you that this is the ONLY guy that has a shot at winning in a General election. This is the ONLY guy that can raise the funds needed…..so you think the guy knighted by the Establishment is your only option and you vote for him or her….and they begin to work their way up the political career ladder.

The ‘chosen’ ones are puppets on strings. They do what they are told, when they are told! They talk how they are told to talk, and they vote how they are supposed to vote. The Establishment, as I have written about in previous blogs, has hijacked the Republican Party. They are not proponents of small government and they do not tout individual rights…..they are swayed by lobbyists and big corporations, and care little for your every day average American citizen. They essentially are Democrats from 30 years ago that vote “pro-life” but have done NOTHING to further the pro-life movement.

Am I totally disheartened by this-yes! Am I frustrated that the Republican Party has been infiltrated by a system that was never intended to exist-yes! Imagine if our founding Father’s saw this ‘career politician’ ideology in play!? It was NEVER ever meant to be a career! Being a public servant was never supposed to be a career. From an outside perspective it looks virtually impossible to change the system, right? I mean…..if you don’t play by the rules-that are really a load of crap-the cool group won’t let you in…..

But you see…..I thought it was hopeless, until someone stepped into the ring that is not playing by the rules at all. Let’s be clear…..if Donald Trump had not stepped into the ring-the Establishment would have presented us with Jeb Bush. He would have been the one we HAD to pick, because he could raise the money. If the Establishment noticed that Jeb wasn’t resonating with us, they would have pulled up Rubio or Walker as our other options. Ted Cruz, Ben Carson and Rand Paul (my favorites) ….would HAVE NEVER been dubbed as the “chosen” ones because they are anti-establishment. They don’t play the games….but you often have to play the game to win or at least to get recognition….uhhhh which makes the whole thing nauseating right?

So Trump stepped in….taking all control away from the Establishment. This is not an endorsement of Trump….this is just an observation that infiltrating the system of “career” politician and bucking the protocol CAN be done. The ONLY way to change the horrendous ‘boys club click’ that it has become- is to watch Trump and others that have beat out the ‘chosen one’ who was backed by the Establishment. It has been done…it can be done. We watched Dave Brat do it when he was up against Eric Cantor.  While many career politicians pander to the Establishment……I say, go back to how we were originally intended to be. Resonate WITH the people. Be real. Talk TO the people not at them-because you are one of them.

Trump’s playbook is worth a read….

The only way to stop the groomed politician -who is inherently a slave to the greater powers at play-is to expose the system and refuse to partake in it.

Yep, it’s been confirmed: The GOP has been hijacked!

“I didn’t leave the GOP, the GOP left me.”

This phrase I have read numerous times from Conservative types and Tea Party enthusiasts and today it resonates so strongly in me. I have identified with this slogan for a while, but today it identifies how I feel more than ever before.

I called both my Senators and requested them NOT to vote for the Fast Tracking of the Trade Bills, headed through Congress-known as Obamatrade, but both ignored my plea. They voted for the cloture to bring the Fast track to a vote and in my gut, I know it’ll pass. I wrote all about this ObamaTrade aka-TPP, you can read it here. This blog entry really isn’t about that though, it’s about my deep concern for the Republican Party.

As I dive deeper into the political world, I have come to the conclusion that the GOP has most definitely, without a doubt been hijacked by big Corporations and Lobbyists, I know it sounds horrible right! The party of limited government is no more. I hear a lot of Patriots murmur “how did we get here as a country?” Well, to me, it’s obvious. The vast majority of those who hold elected office are not beholden to their Constitutes. The fact that phone calls into our elected officials were 30-1 OPPOSING this trade bill just affirms my thoughts! The voice of the people is not being heard. The fact that Marco Rubio cast the deciding vote yesterday, or that Ted Cruz- a champion to the Conservative cause just now realized ObamaTrade was “bad” …… blows my mind! Where was the fight?

It’s easy to point our fingers at the Left and blame them, but the problem starts with the Right. To put it simply, the Established Right has been bought! The vast majority of our elected officials have sold out their constitutes for a promised career in politics, with the specific instructions to vote how the big corps and lobbyists want them to vote. They get away with this because when it comes to election time, those big corps and lobbyists write the big money checks for their campaigns to keep them in office. To say it’s ‘ugly’ would be a gynormous understatement!

If our Founding Father’s saw us now, what would they say?

It was never intended to be this way. Never.

I am grieved by this, but at the same time, I refuse to just give in, to let this Machine win-I can’t, I won’t.

I was having a political conversation just last week and a member of the Establishment was mentioned as having jumped into the presidential race.  Now I was surrounded by Conservatives, these people were not Establishment at all, but one of them said: “you know if Bush is the nominee, we need to support him.”

I say NO.

This is part of the problem, we as Conservatives are being manipulated into supporting someone who is not even a Conservative because they have the GOP label. But that GOP label has been stolen, it doesn’t belong to them!

Just because you say you are something, doesn’t make you that ‘something’-your actions make you that ‘something.’

How can we stop this?

First support TERM LIMITS and only support those candidates who support them as well.

Don’t elect career politicians, if they have held office for considerable amount of time, they have lost touch with the people. Look at Boehner-he honestly thinks he’s the Godfather…..sooo time for him to go!

Don’t support members of the Establishment, even if they are our only option, I’d honestly rather vote 3rd party-and no that’s not throwing my vote away….it’s having a voice!  You see our voices have been silenced because of this methodology, we just go along to get along and it’s resulted in our current state as a country!

Call for a Convention of States-it’s found in Article 5 of the Constitution. It gives we the people, the right to ratify the Constitution, allowing an amendment for term limits. For more info click here.

It is time for WE the People to face this machine and MAKE IT STOP, it CAN be done, it must be done!
