If any of the political elites or media elites were to stumble across this humble blog, they would immediately classify me as a Right-Wing-Radical. They would be right. I wear that badge with pride even though I find it sad that those of us who believe in the founding principles upon which this nation was formed are now considered radicals, So be it!
Because we supporters of the Constitution have been marginalized, we hear more and more talk of third parties. I submit that we already have three parties in American politics: the Democrats, the Republicrats, and a small but vocal number of Republicans. Although the Republicrats and Republicans together have a majority in the House of Representatives, the leader of this aggregate majority is a Republicrat; Speaker John Boehner. The teary-eyed Mr. Boehner calls himself a Republican. But, since he was carried to his lofty position by the 2010 Tea Party rebellion, he has done nothing more than acquiesce to the wishes of President Barack Obama. He has gone so far as to remove Tea Party Republicans from their committee leadership positions. John Boehner is not a Republican and John Boehner needs to be removed from office in the 2014 mid-term elections.
One prominent blogger, Doug Ross of the Doug Ross@Journal blog has come up with a plan to make sure that John Boehner loses his reelection bid in 2014. It’s a radical plan. It’s a nuclear plan. And, your humble observer of the asylum we all have to live in fully and unequivocally supports the Doug Ross Plan to put an end to the political career of John Boehner. Let’s take a look at the radical plan of Doug Ross. It’s a simple plan but it is radical.
While there are grassroots efforts emerging to primary Boehner in Ohio’s 8th District — and we wish them all possible success — the time has come to consider an alternative plan. A nuclear option, if you will.
Assuming that Boehner wins his primary in OH-8, I suggest we rally support among Tea Party and Constitutional Conservatives in that district to vote. To vote Democrat.
That single seat has virtually no chance of swinging the majority in the House one way or the other. A newly elected Democrat in that very Red seat will be a back-bencher and virtually powerless. This will give time to the district (and it is a very conservative district by all accounts) to assemble a credible candidate should one not emerge in 2014.
I would never advocate such a tactic in the Senate even though Mitch McConnell is Boehner-lite. In the Senate the odds of taking majority control are simply too tempting to chance returning the dimwitted crackpot from Searchlight, Nevada to a seat of power.
But Boehner, on the other hand, is such an egregious failure, such a cowardly and un-principled operator, that he must be ripped out of the Speaker’s chair by any means necessary.
Radical? Yes. The Democrats have their Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. Isn’t it time that true supporters of this republic applied some radical methods of their own? I see no other way to put an end to the effective one party system we currently have in America. This approach has the possibility of getting the attention of other Republicrats, too.
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
