It is funny how smug overconfident liberals want to 'advise' the GOP to abandon their principles, or they will cease to exist. Such existential talk is overblown.
Democrats not so long ago lost a bunch of Presidential elections. They werent considered as 'dying'. They had a strong base in state and local offices.
"Outside of Washington, D.C., the Republican Party has never been in better shape. Just look to the majorities Republicans hold in 27 state legislatures, or to the 30 states that have GOP governors.
"These governors are bright, talented and young, and they represent the diversity of America. From Nikki Haley and Bobby Jindal in the South, to Chris Christie in the Northeast, to Scott Walker in the Midwest, and Susana Martinez and Brian Sandoval in the West, they represent the modern diversity of our country while running their states successfully. [How dare this writer leave out Bob McDonnell !!]"
They also bring to the office time-tested conservative principles of lower taxes, less regulations and more opportunities for all.
And what about the Democrats? Illinois and California are examples of the downward spiral caused by higher taxes, more regulations and less freedom. In those states, the debt is mounting, jobs are being lost and the people are fleeing to conservatively run states such as Texas, where opportunities abound. All this augurs a promising election cycle throughout our state contests.
Nationally, the GOP, which holds a solid majority in the U.S. House, is in a unique position to rebound in 2014 as it did in 2010. The president, in both his State of the Union and inaugural addresses, restated his commitments to more spending, larger government and higher taxes. These are the very same priorities that were primarily responsible for the recessionary cycle we continue to experience.
Middle-income Americans discovered — when they opened their paychecks this month — that contrary to the president's promises, their taxes had gone up, and more hikes are on the way to pay for ObamaCare and the endless list of new initiatives. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi stated last week that we don't have "a spending problem." Sadly, she is right. Never has a party spent so much and achieved so little.
This country is about to fall off a fiscal precipice, and this president ignores all the warning signs. For example, if interest rates today were what they were during Bill Clinton's administration, the yearly payment on the interest alone of our growing national debt would exceed $700 billion — enough to shut down our government. The GOP's future success is inevitable given the Democrats' economic mismanagement."
Eventually, the public will wise up and realize the President's massive expansion of Government is not the solution to our problems, it is the problem...
