“Conservatives … Have Been Betrayed” – says Conservative “Human Events”

This is from Todd Stump at Human Events online – NOT part of “the liberal media” I assure you!

The same conservatives who sacrificed time, energy, and money to push the Republicans into the majority in both houses of Congress and to the presidency have been betrayed. We’ve suspected it for a long time. And now we know it.

If my circle of acquaintance is any indication, the majority party has lost its foundation. Every one of my Republican-voting friends, from those who have a casual affinity to those who are deeply immersed in conservative circles, are so thoroughly dismayed with our party’s performance that they will sit the next election cycle out.

Do you suppose that’s really true? Are they going to sit it out?

Imagine that: not the swing voter; nor the elusive independent; but the deeply conservative base voter

  • who supported the party financially,
  • at the ballot box,
  • and in spirit during its lean years

will be watching from the sidelines this fall. In disgust.

(If you go that site, be careful with your eyes. They advertise some really repulsive stuff over there. Like a T-shirt that says “Imagine – no liberals” — promoting a sort of ideological genocide against their fellow Americans? And Ann Coulter’s new trash novel “Godless” about all us evil liberals. That lady does know evil! Unfortunately her readers – presumably like Ann herself – do not discern the difference between hatred and bile on the one hand and something like citizenship on the other.)

  • These are the kind of news I’m waiting for all along (at least since re-election 2004).

    Nevertheless, thanks to you, conservatives, proving true to your conviction, after all, rather than to the discipline of battle lines in that war, democracy was never intended to be, in the first place, and should not degenerate into, for too long a time.

    Let me ask you one more favor nevertheless. Speak up AGAINT this administration, even for IMPEACHMENT (of both Cheney and Bush), for keeping neutral will not be remedial enough.

    I’ll soon return to explain this at some more length, but let it be stated here rather brief, and fairly square:


    I am truly sorry that it is NOT POSSIBLE for me to persuade conservatives at this point that I am not demanding public repentance, nor wishing to humiliate anyone. But I beg them, to realize that in supporting Bush (and CHENEY !!), they have committed a fateful mistake and rendered their country (and the whole world) a disservice so grievous that active amends are indispensable.

    (Maybe, after having overcome this acute crisis, we jointly may watch back and find out that, given the larger dangers of these final decades of cheap petroleum capitalism, the blundering Bush was perhaps even the lesser mishap, compared to the smarter, neater damage, of new Clinton or Kerry-free-trader might have wrought. In that case, liberals and conservatives – and those who do not fully embrace either side – may laugh together, finally. But these good times have to be reached (and earned) yet, and this means FIGHT, not halcyon disaction.)
