In name only my backside

I’m thinking over the course of the next few weeks and months the republicans in Congress are going to reveal something or possibly many things about themselves to the Peoples of this Republic. Now that the “fix” for Obamacare has been pulled of the table, and the spending bill continues the government pretty much as it was, still funding the things that the so-called republican conservatives promised they would fight. By the way still no Wall.

Concerning Obamacare, now I understand that some republican congress critters all of a sudden love it. They have been referred to as “moderate republicans”, last I heard it was 18 of them. They do not want to change a thing. This has led to the term RINO’s(Republican In Name Only)being bandied about. I have no idea when or where the term RINO’s came about, and I really do not care. I had even referred to some republicans as being a RINO. I no longer do that. I began to referring to them as CINO’s(Conservatives In Name Only). I will no longer do that either. Quite frankly there is not other name to attach to them other than republican.

Since I am of the opinion that the republican party is the party of “big government and big business”, has been since the days of the federalist party and still is today. I would like to say that I do not believe that there is any such thing as a moderate republican. It is impossible. Being a “moderate republican” would be the same as a woman being almost pregnant. You are either a republican or you are not, one can only be pregnant or not. I mean after all what would a moderate republican stand for, a moderate government in size and power?

Let me get back to this Obamacare thing for just a minute. The democrats passed Obamacare without a single republican supporting it. So you must have been opposed to it right? None of you claimed that their was one good part or thing about it. If you were opposed to it, it would make good sense that you get rid of it now. You claimed then if you had control of the House you could get rid of it. You got control of the house. You did not manage to get rid of it. Them you said that if you got control of the Senate you could get rid of it. You got control of the Senate. You did not manage to get rid of it. Then you said if only you had control of the White House you could get rid of it. Your party now has control of the House, the Senate and the White House. You still can’t seem to get rid of it. You just did not get the president you wanted or expected. I might also mention that each and every spending bill including the latest one fully funds Obamacare. Come on admit it, you love the damn thing don’t you?

I think the American voters have been had, yet again. No, I know that we have been had. You have no intention of getting rid of Obamacare, never had never will. The democrats did for you what you would not do for you. Obamacare gave the federal government even more control over the American people and their lives. You are not going to give back that power. You will never repeal Obamacare. If you do replace it, it will with a republican plan, it will still be a government plan that controls people’s lives. You will win, we will lose.

Now let’s get to Planned Parenthood for just a moment. You were appalled when the videos were released of baby parts being sold. Where is your anger now? You funded them again. You’ve funded them every time. Explain that to me. You really weren’t appalled were you?

If the government was about to be shut down because the money was running out, where did you come up with the over 1 Trillion Dollars in your spending bill? You did not borrow it did you? You always wait for the very last minute and then come up with a bill that runs at least one thousand pages and piles of money. Was it just more smoke and mirrors? Political drama.

Since the new spending bill will take the government through the end of September you are pretty much finished for the year. You can now start planning your summer vacation. Lord knows you need one, what with being overworked and all. By the way do stop by and tell us of all the wonderful things you have accomplished. You will come back just in time to do a panic spending bill again. More political drama. I mean after you must not let the government shutdown. What would we do?

Now let me get back to your big government for just a minute. Both parties are all about the growth of government. The democrats are at least honest about it, where you deceive the voters at every turn. We, the voters that have been supporting you for so long have just been slapped in the face, again. It would seem that the republican party is the party of watch what we do, do not worry about what we say, when it comes to government. You are like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The campaigning republican is not the same one that gets sworn into office.

Now let’s talk about your so-called principles for a bit. Some of you would not support President Trump during his campaign, you said doing so against your principles. It would seem that building up debts and running deficits as far as the eye can see is not against your principles. It would also seem that funding Planned Parenthood, an organization you claim to despise, does not go against your principles. It would further seem that stopping or even controlling illegal entry into this Republic would go against your principles. It would seem that the only thing that does go against your principles is losing an election. I don’t know but I have a suspicion that the very same ones who would not support President Trump then are the same ones who are fighting so hard against him now.

You are not Conservatives or Constitutional Conservatives, no matter your claims or the claims of the talking heads. You are republicans, plain and simple. I still would rather be in the company of Skunk than a republican politician. Go ahead prove me wrong.

I might add that the only reason that the conservatives even hang out in you party is that we don’t have any where to else to go. Not yet anyway.

On a personal note. Still looking for a political home. A couple looked “promising”. But that is what you have been doing for years. Promising and never delivering. Probably going to opt to be politically homeless.

There has got to be a reason

I mean really, there has got to be a reason. There must be a reason why the Liberal Socialists keep “shooting” at us down here, you know in Dixie. The War Between the States ended some 152 years ago. Yet today, there are still volleys being fired at Dixie, our Culture and our Heritage. The latest volley fired at our Culture and Heritage came from within Louisiana itself. The sad part is that Louisiana is not the only State firing volleys at itself, Georgia and South Carolina have also willing participated in the Destruction of Our Culture and Heritage. I would imagine that this is an occurrence all across Dixie. Even here in Florida it is happening. At least in this county the Flags went back up, political reasons(pressure).

What happened here in Marion County is a major problem all across Dixie. It was the politicians who had them taken down and it was the politicians who had them put back up. Who knows what the politicians will do next? They did not stand their ground and were pressured to take down the Confederate States of America Flag. Then they were pressured to put It back up. Politicians are like a weak tree they go which ever was the wind blows, not just the limbs but down to the roots.

The major problem with politics in the Southern States is that the political and economic interests of the South are ignored. One of the biggest reasons is that the politicians at the federal level are more concerned with the interests of their political party than the interests of the People or States they are sent to represent. It is no better at the State and only slightly better at the County level. My belief is that the politicians allegedly representing the South and the Southern people are at worst “carpet baggers” and at best “scalawags”. As said in the last post, I consider a Skunk better company than a politician.

Let’s leave politics(though it is the root of the problem, always has been and always will be)and discuss what is really happening down here in Dixie.

What is happening here in Dixie is nothing less than Cultural Genocide, the attempted total elimination of a culture. The destruction Southern Culture and in the process destroy our Heritage. There are only two groups engaged in the Cultural Genocide of the South.
The first group is composed of those who do not care about any Culture or any Heritage. They seek to keep this Republic in a never-ending process of Destruction and Reconstruction. These people are on a mission and there is nothing I or anyone else can say that will cause them to stop. Therefore there is really no need to address them, they can not be reasoned with.
The second group is those who do not know. You do not know for lack of education, you are well-educated. You were taught well, but you were not taught the truth. I will give you the benefit of the doubt. These are the people I address, you can be reasoned with. You must teach yourself, it does take time. When you are exposed to the truth you may just come away with a different view of the South, the Southern People our Culture and our Heritage. You may find the reason, the real reason, we from the South love our Culture and Heritage so much. You may even be opposed to the Cultural Genocide occurring in Dixie today. You may join us in protecting what is dear, you may even become an Honorary Southerner. Dixie is a real catchy tune.

In case you, in the second group, can not be reasoned with and/or simply refuse to learn and accept the truth, this is for you. The Southern Culture is about much more than Flags, Statues and Monuments, those are only inanimate objects erected in honor of memories and our heroes from the past. Seeing them does cause a certain amount of passion in me, patriotic passion. They are a part of our Heritage, a Heritage we do not want to see torn down. You may one day complete your works of destruction of our Flags, Statues and Monuments. You will however never complete your works of destruction on our Culture, if that were to ever happen it would truly be a terrible day for this Republic. You make get some lily livered politicians to side with you, you may even cause some Southerners who have been brow beaten for so long they too will side with you. But you will still be left with those of in who will never deny their Southern Culture or Heritage. For that to happen we will have to be destroyed. In our ranks there are those who refuse to be Reconstructed and those who are becoming Unreconstructed. To accomplish that task you will need help. During the Revolutionary War the King of Britain needed help as he was unable to subdue the Colonials with his might, he had to seek help to complete his works of destruction(see the Declaration of Independence). You may have been taught how that turned out.

Are you confused by now? In case you did not know I am a veteran of the U.S. Army, served over 20 years. Actually you should not be confused at all. If you look back through the history of this Republic and it’s Military, you will find that with the exception of The War Between the States, Southerners made up the majority of the volunteers in the military. No other region of this Republic has contributed so much in the way of manpower for our fighting forces. Consequently no other people has paid a higher price in fighting for this country. Military service is also a part of our Culture as well as our Heritage. We answer the call.

I need to make a side trip here for just a minute concerning our military and the Warrior Culture. If you do not believe that Cultural Genocide is possible you should check out an article I found the other day. Found it in my reader, a re-blog by none other than Gunny G, which sent me to Free Republic with a link to US Defense Watch. The article can be found at US Defense Watch titled: How Desert Storm Destroyed the US Military. Read it you will find out that Cultural Genocide is entirely possible, the Warrior Culture. If you desire further reading check out sentinelblog, a post from Frontpage Mag entitled; The Bay of Pigs 56 Years Later. Read it to the end, it might open your eyes concerning Southern Culture.

Now back to Southern Culture. A lot of Southern Culture is just plain good manners. Holding a door for a Lady. Standing for Lady so she can sit, offering a seat. Respect for our elders, saying Yes Sir or Yes Ma’am. Not to brag on myself, and I am sure that other Southerners do the same on a daily basis. I have gotten out of line to let Ladies go ahead of me at the check out counter. Just the other day I was almost to the register, my few items were already on the belt. There was an elderly gentleman and his wife behind me, I promptly removed my items and told the gentleman that he and his wife could go ahead. He of course refused, I insisted. His wife then declined so I honored her wishes and placed my few items back on the belt. All just plain good manners.

There is another thing about Southerners, we are a tolerant people. Well to a point. Even when we are forced into intolerance we are nice about it. We say things like; “Well Bless your heart”, even when something more harsh would be needed. Well that is what our Southern Ladies might say. Sometimes the men will say what needs said or do what needs doing.

There is another thing about us down here when it comes to meddlesome people and the like. We just say “Just Leave Us Be”. We also do not believe that Might makes Right. We believe that Right is Right and Wrong is Wrong.

Come on down and meet some real Southerners, you might just take a liking to us. There is one more thing we are a respectful people, we give it freely and we expect it in return. Don’t make us say, I wish “Those People” would just go back where they came from.

April is Confederate History Month, in case you did not know. Come celebrate with us, we just sit around have a good time and go “visiting” not bothering a soul. Going “Visiting” tomorrow, had to work the 26th.

God Bless Dixie and Her People

Oh, one last thing. Please do stop shooting at us. You might just want to keep Us and our Culture around a good while longer, you might just need our men to answer the call once again. I hear war drums in the distance. Some of y’all don’t got a good record of answering the call.
