The battle for the future of the Republican Party

It’s been ten years since the Tea Party sprang up in full force because a wide swath of the American people realized what the Democrat Party had become and rejected the quisling nature of the old guard of the GOP. But the Republican leadership, like fattened sows, refused to budge an inch, refused to stand by their own platform, and chased the false notion of political ascendency through positive press.

So when President Trump fights against the mainstream press, the old guard Republicans denounce him because it’s the press they believe will make them “palatable” to the masses. They are as inflexible as socialists and continue to attack the American way of life. And just like socialism, chasing positive press for Republicans is a tired old gambit that can never work. The news media, dominated by leftists, imprints its worldview into daily news consumption, and much of the American people know it. As time wears on, any positive press for Republicans is viewed skeptically by the core of the Republican Party, the conservative grassroots.

Old guard Republicans are lying to themselves and the rest of us. Accepting the Left’s direction for the country is not standing on the moral high ground. Yet in the battle for the future of the Republican Party, there remains a large group of older Republicans, the Whig type, who believe they are upholding the “Grand Old Party” by standing astride the blurred line of progressivism: accepting the false premises of the media and accusing people, including the president, of racism, sexism, and Nazism. They are confused and conflicted because it has always been that they thought they sought peace with their “friends across the aisle.” They are convinced that they can win only if they are more palatable to the press for mass consumption. Trump’s presidency is proving them very wrong, and they know no other way.

For the old guard GOP, Romney represents a segment of “our better angels,” but to suggest that Romney, a politician who has ushered in mostly anti-liberty ideas, has much in common with wholesomeness and morality is offensive and non-discerning. He was the originator of the largest government takeover ever, Obamacare, while a governor of dark blue Massachusetts, then hightailed it to conservative Utah, where they didn’t exactly roll out the red carpet for him. How did he manage to make it? Is he a supposed “better angel?” Or does he just look the part while stealing away, brick by brick, the fortress of American greatness?

Looking back, it’s amazing how thoroughly the Republican Party swallowed whole the cockamamie plan to become “better angels” of widespread socialism.

Sounds a lot like your talking about the "deep state"--the rich pubs who actually run things. 
IMO the west coast multi-millionaires are the new dems.  They're backing the weirdos who were recently elected.

Doubt they change their minds.  Suspect pubs who are tired of the discord in politics will go with Trump one more time, then go for a pacifier in the next election.
Romney won't be the one they're looking at.  Too many people don't like Mormons in the first place and, in the second place, didn't like his weaselly campaign last time.

Romney is DOA as far as being a nominee again. You don't leave me anything to disagree with you over after that.  Wink Smiley

The liberals must have no common sense at all!  If they had not had the American way how do they think they got as far as they have?  So they are trying to destroy their own country and make it into something they have never had to deal with. 

Our Constitution and Bible has the correct way for people to have FREEDOM!! So they think they should only have it? Sorry, I am old and still love my freedom and AIN'T nobody gonna take it away without a fight. Some of us will die BUT NOT WITHOUT TAKING SOME WITH US!!!  AND where there is a will there is a way to get to the dummies that caused all this mess!!!!!
Come and get me...
