Ex Congressman Leaves the GOP

What Does a Conservative Do?

I feel the pain of former Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo.  The insane open borders, warmonger, big government loving whack-jobs of the GOP drove me out of the party in 2003.

Tancredo has chosen to become an independent and support Ted Cruz. In my case I am technically a registered Republican in California.  But I consider myself a Conservative RINO, an independent Constitutional Federalist if you will, who is backing The Donald.

The problem is even if The Donald won the open borders Wall Street Establishment would still own both parties in Congress.

Personally I would eagerly join a Conservative Party like they have in New York. I would like to see Conservatives target and win highly Republican legislative districts at the state level. Build a new party from the bottom up.

But there appears to be no interest at all from the voters. They keep voting for any Establishment fool as long as he has the magic "R" behind his name.

Below are some highlights from Tancredo's article in Breitbart.

Tom Tancredo Speaks Out

"The proudly socialist Democrats are full of passionate intensity, while the Republican leadership is full of pathetic excuses. After this week’s House GOP “budget deal,” which betrays nearly every promise made to grassroots conservatives since 2010, I have decided it is time to end my affiliation with the Republican Party."

  • As a Member of Congress for ten years (1998-2008), I was subjected to threats and pressures from the Congressional Leadership and President George W. Bush to support the creation of an expensive Medicare prescription drug program–even though creating a new government spending program financed by massive debt flies in the face of the Republican Party’s core principles.

  • I was told by President Bush’s top political operative, Karl Rove, “never to darken the door of the White House again” because of my criticism of the administration’s dangerously lax immigration policies in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

  • When I first arrived in the U.S. House of Representatives, I naively believed that it was primarily the Democrats who were committed to open borders. But I quickly learned the entire Republican establishment also supported a policy of immigration non-enforcement. I was repeatedly pulled into the office of the then-Majority Leader, Tom DeLay, and threatened with dire consequences if I continued to speak out publicly for common-sense immigration policies and true border security
2014 Elections  
Yet, despite these historic gains, nothing changed. The GOP neither advanced a conservative agenda nor checked the radical “transformative” agenda of Barack Obama. We got condescending lip service, and nothing more.
  • Promises have been broken and principles abandoned, while millions of American families watched their dreams slip further and further out of reach.

  • Republican congressional leaders maneuvered to deliver votes to fund President Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty order, and more recently, his unprecedented job-killing EPA rules.
  • No one has been held accountable for the outrageous IRS and VA scandals.
Sadly, it has become obvious that the Republican establishment simply has no intention of ever fulfilling promises made in platforms and campaign speeches. To their mind, there are elections, and then there is “governing,” and governing to them means not messing with a gargantuan government on autopilot.
  • The Republican establishment does not want to control spending.
  • It does not want to secure the borders or enforce immigration laws.
  • It does not care about American sovereignty.
  • It has no interest in ending the unaccountable and corrupt culture that has become a hallmark of official Washington.
By insulting the grassroots, the GOP leadership has set upon a suicide mission.
The Boehner budget deal is the last straw, and enough is enough. I cannot any longer defend this transparently dishonest charade called the Republican Party.
What I will do instead is join the largest political group in the nation, unaffiliated Independents. In Colorado, they outnumber both “major” political parties.
The next day I will begin working my tail off for the next twelve months to organize Independents to help elect Senator Ted Cruz as President of the United States.

Leaving the GOP
Tancredo already left the pussy, open borders GOP in 2010. But nothing
changes. The Establishment Elites ride out any revolt and fully fund all
candidates for other offices. The rebellion fades and the Elites turn the
screws on any Republican stupid enough to have backed controlling
immigration and Conservatism.
The corrupt Elites have solved the "rebellion" problem in the People's
Republic of California where I live. They passed a law banning all
small opposition political parties and independents from all future general
election ballots. They have made sure that the Sheeple voters will
only have a choice of a Dem or a Republican.
