Tea Party Members Break Reagan’s 11th Commandment to Ensure Constitutional Candidates

leave a comment »

In what normally would be a quiet primary season in red Congressional districts across the country, a few Republican candidates find themselves under a microscope when they expected to coast to an easy primary win. While some claim it’s a violation of Ronald Reagan’s 11th commandment, tea party conservatives sin, throwing out the 11th commandment, to ensure the most Constitutional solid candidate gets the party nomination.

This is apparent in Missouri’s Seventh Congressional District. A few weeks ago, it looked like republican candidate Billy Long would coast through the primaries. Long had a significant lead in fund raising as well as having the most recognized name in the race. However, a chance meeting last fall led to one tea party member waging a campaign against the leading Republican candidate in the race.

Clay Bowler, the blogger at Bungalow Bill’s Conservative Wisdom watched candidate Long approach closer to his place in line prior to Claire McCaskill’s town hall meeting in Springfield, Missouri. A small-business man went up to Long and asked him why he couldn’t get a small business loan after the banks got the TARP money to free up the credit markets. He wanted to know what Long was going to do to make sure he was going to get a loan for his small business.

Long began to pander to the man, explaining what he would do. When he was done, Bowler asked him what in the Constitution gave him the authority to tell this man that he would help him. Long answered there was nothing. Bowler fired back, so why are you telling this man this. Candidate Long walked off.

After the meeting, Bowler began to realize that candidate Long had a long record in the local media of contradicting the platform put on his page, so he decided to challenge Long using the power of the Internet. He started the Billy Long is Wrong Web site. The site looks at the candidate under an intensified scope and examines the concerns he has of the candidate. Since the site was introduced, momentum has shifted to the more conservative Constitutionalist candidates.

This is the reality of the tea party movement, which is tired of more of the same from candidates that claim they are conservative republicans. Many tea party activists are asking what they can do to raise awareness for candidates that care about the Constitution and the limits of government, and more are turning to the Web to combat moderate candidates who don’t want to live within the limits of the Constitution. You can’t claim you are against the bailouts and then tell constituents that you will help them get their fair share. You can’t claim you are against the stimulus and then look to see how many millions and billions you can bring to your district.

Left Coast Rebel is another tea party blog that is working to promote Constitutional conservatives while weeding out RINO candidates. LCR is examining districts around the United States putting up red flags for Republican candidates that are running with a big ‘R’ platform.

LCR has been vocal in expressing support for little ‘r’ republicans that want to enforce the limits of the federal government. Normally, he wouldn’t get involved in other districts, but he has determined too much is on the line this election not to be more active in the election.
So conservatives and Republicans are breaking Ronald Reagan’s 11th Commandment. It’s not too hard to imagine that if Reagan was here today, he would probably be speaking up against what has taken place in the Republican party these days.

Thank you for reading this blog.

The Green Police?

H/T to Clay at BBCW. I think it was a poke at the enviro-terrorists and their hoax agenda. All Audi is saying is their cars will keep you out of trouble with the green “man” as it were. Yes they are that absurd.

Thank you for reading this blog.

Sunday Brunch With The Right Guy: The Inner Circle

leave a comment »

It’s Sunday and it’s brunch time with The Right Guy and his blog peeps, The Inner Circle.

This week was like no other. Coming out of post op, I thought someone was playing a joke on me when I first saw that MaObama won the Nobel Peace Prize. I was assured by Bug that I was not hallucinating, that indeed Obama had won it, and not only that, but nothing he has done, but for what he will do.

To that extent, I have used an image for this post that shows the next contest Obama must feel that he has to win. So far he’s gotten honoraria from universities, Nobel prizes, the presidency, and now he is going head to head with Jesus in a Messiah-Off Contest. Al Jazeera has the odds 3-2 in the Obamessiah’s favor, according to their spokesman.

Clay over at BBCW proposes that if you want to smell like a Nobel Prize winner, you have to go with BO.

Dr. Dave at Feed Your ADHD tells us Obama is a shoe in for the 2010 Miss Universe Title.

Nickie over at Goomba News tells us MaObama is 3rd in the Heisman voting.

Our most pro-second amendment buddy, the inestimable Dr. John R. Lott has decided to gloss over the Nobel celebrations to concentrate on why women like feminine men.

And my pal Sharky, over at Land Shark 5150 was even more incredulous than I was about the nobel, getting a case of agita.

Tim over at LCR is all over the linky love, FMJRA, and the Nobel Debacle, all in one post. Thanks for the link Tim, I appreciate it, you are a friend of The Right Guy.

Eric at LR was a little late to the party, with the LP reaction. Where is Eric’s outrage? With the moonshine tax, of course.

Then there is my buddy and fellow super hero against autism, B&G Fan at The Right Stuff, giving her unique and compelling opinion about the Nobama prize.

Right Klick is on the case, describing it as the 2nd biennial anti-bush award. How about anti-common sense award? Then again we should call it the mmm, mmm, mmm Obama award.

Last but not least, the Smitty and RSM team have been at it again with their prolific FMJRA and Linky love. While there was outrage at the contest results, The Right Guy was admonished for that post. God has spoken.

Thank you for reading this blog.
