Conservatives across America celebrated when John Boehner stepped down from his position as Speaker of the House. We celebrate his departure because he sold out conservatives, supported Obama’s agenda, and squandered the GOP majority.
We celebrate because as an informed electorate, we are sick of Congress regularly using “show votes” to fool and mislead Americans. Over and over, GOP members of Congress pretend to fight for a conservative agenda, while actually voting against the conservative agenda when it counts. Smoke and mirror legislation worked before conservative voters woke up and learned how deceitful Congress really is. Many conservatives now are privy to the Congressional trickery that has been used to hornswoggle voters in to believing, that up is down and black is white. This chicanery no longer works on us. We now understand how the game is played and how America has been played. Vote against funding Obama’s programs in a standalone vote destined to fail, then vote for funding the same program in a Continuing Resolution, when it really counts.
Now, we are asked to believe that Boehner stepped down because of the pope’s visit. Boehner and McConnell have become masters of deceit. They lie and obfuscate constantly. So, why would we suddenly start believing the words of a proven, serial liar? A reason much more likely to me is that Boehner once again is putting his self-interest first and has a lucrative offer from K-Street. He has been motivated by money and self-interest since he has been Speaker, so we can safely assume he still is.
Regardless of his reasons, Boehner is gone, and conservatives see this as a chance for Congress to turn around and rebuild the trust they have lost, by putting in a true conservative as Speaker. But our local Congressional representatives see it differently. They are signaling that they plan to support Boehner’s next in line, McCarthy. If they do, this is another opportunity squandered and another betrayal of the voters. Please let your representative know that we want real change. We want a Conservative in this position.
