The current news for many conservatives and liberals alike in regards to the establishment GOP is the unsettling incongruence between many social conservatives as properly understood and what, as is unfairly charicatured, are known as "Country Club Republicans".
I am of the opin' that this split is entirely engineered by the Regime and its disciples in the media with the purpose of kicking the conservative movement while it is down, hoping to fracture the long uncomfortable alliance between more affluent conservo's and their compatriots bestowed with markedly redder necks.
It was reported by Rush Limbaugh that a close freind of the president had decreed that their administration should attempt to create discontent among these wings of the GOP - so, despite many people on the left's doubts as to Rush's credentials as a journalist, this is far from speculation.
There have even been whispers of creating a third party.

All joking aside, I - as head of Tea Party organization DDU - would like to voice my support for the strategies and actions of the Grand Ole' Party of late. For example, the decision to make amends and bend at the last minute in leu of the debt ceiling was honorable and responsible to the highest degree.
The high ups in the party know these types of maneuvers will be unpopular with certain elements of their constituency - but they do the best thing for the country, now as before. They know what kind of sacrifices true service-as-such takes, and are willing to take the tough decision points seriously enough to react beyond the mere ideological lock step that so often seems the rights weakness. What we are seeing is not, as some have grossly mischaracterized, the degeneration and dissolution of the GOP; but, in fact - the opposite. We're seeing state's rights as a position taken so seriously that it stands above all else in terms of platform.
The GOP strategy is thus: We lost the POTUS election, but there are many state's that did not support this outcome; therefore, we are to fight for individual state's rights before all else.
We see the admissions of the right and the lack of ardent protest of the Regime's policies, yet fail to see the tooth and nail battle for state's rights in the context of what 'Bama seeks to do, truly, with the victory of Obamacare. They are making great strides and leaps to secure for states the most precient and salient demands, above all: the demand to stay out of this Obamacare thing as much as damned possible. If anyone can prevent the implementation of the truly fascist aspects of Obamacare's effects, I, for one, beleive the GOP can.
Yet the dissent among conservatives is, currently, seething and frothing from the mouth.
What those disillusioned conservatives need to focus on is not giving in to needless in-fighting and putting their energies where they are needed; in a sustained conservative protest movement that backs the GOP fully and can help give libertarian-leaning libs a reason to feel like they should take up arms with their neo-conservative brethren!
We're all in this together, and though there is little we can do to stem the tide of collectivism, we can (to quote Buckley) stand athwart shouting no!
And we should!
The power of individuals in state government and their constituents to rally around a vision of America that hearkens not merely to the Founders but to that America that, as Glenn Beck said, we haven't forgotten shouldn't be underestimated. That America we remember. It's not lost.
I'll leave you, faithfull reader, with what is - to me - breaking news.
From Feb. NR:
"It's possible... that President Obama will skip blithely from triumph to triumph, nudging a lowing herd of dredulous millenials into the pen of joyless collectivism, emerging periodically to give a hectoring address while jutting his chin at the Future, mistaking hortatory hollering for persuasion."
I wish you the best in your endeavors to fight for Freedom.
