On the Republican side, voters have been betrayed by the Establishment GOP one too many times: their deal with the voters the last four elections or so is that if we hand them the gavels (committee chairmanships gained with a majority), they will:
- Repeal Obamacare
- Defund Obamacare
- Roll back/restrict Obama's executive orders
- Get control of the out of control government spending
- (fill in whatever other promise these weasels made here)
And what are the results of these promises that the Establishment GOP made, now that we the voters have empowered both the Senate and the House with GOP majorities, and handed them their gavels? The results are the following:
.................(crickets chirping here)...............................
In essence, the Establishment GOP broke its promises to the voters on too many occasions to count. They simply lie to their constituents while on the stump. Flat out bald-faced lies.
I just wonder what would happen to these GOP liars if they had made such promises to the Mafia? To the Medillan or Sinaloa drug cartels? Promises such as those made by the GOP Establishment to groups such as these and then wantonly and openly broken/ignored would be dealt with harshly. Very harshly.
We now are seeing what it looks like when voters get tired of being lied to: defections to 'undesirable' candidates. You know, the kind of candidates that Karl Rove and Reinz Preibus don't like. Those kind of 'undesirables.' And yet Karl Rove and Reinz Preibus to this very day don't understand why their chosen 'Establishment' candidates are getting no traction whatsoever.
We voters understand it perfectly. And we are doing something about the Establishment's having taken the American conservative vote for granted for so long. We are enmasse voting for 'undesirables.'
Now we are all waiting for the GOP convention in Cleveland, which is governed by the Establishment GOP. The majority of delegates earned during the primaries have gone to such aforementioned 'undesirables,' such as Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. When the convention gets underay, we will see what kind of destruction the GOP can render to their already tattered credibility.
The GOP Establishment will have to make a choice: go with the general mood of their pissed off constituency and nominate an 'undesirable,' thereby losing control of the Republican Party. Or, alternatively, they can hand pick one of their guys, an Establishment candidate that Karl Rove calls a 'fresh face' to head up the Republican ticket. And then they can watch as the conservative voters completely and totally wash their hands of these GOP Establishment morons, in essence relegating the Republican Party to another 40 years of wandering in the wilderness.
If the Establishment GOP chooses the latter, it looks like Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, or even a Democrat interloper like Joe Biden or John Kerry will get elected to a third term of Obama.
