"If at age 20 you are a conservative then you have no heart. If at age 30 you are a liberal then you have no brains."
Sir Winston Churchill

Obama obviously knows very little about economics, specifically that "Society stagnates when independent productive achievers begin to be socially demonized and even punished for their accomplishments." This dilemma fogs Obama's reality. To him, accepting this truth is a "false choice", his answer to things he doesn't understand. And by the way... where is John Galt?

Last week I excoriated Democrats for being a party that no longer believes in the US Constitution, individual rights and the rule of law.  Today I excoriate the Republicans for being unable or unwilling to defend, protect and preserve the same.
This administration is the greatest law breaker in the history of the Republic and the President both deserves and must be impeached.  The problem is that because impeachment is a political solution to political and/or criminal "high crimes and misdemeanors" you cannot successful impeach anyone unless you have 67 votes in the Senate.  That in turn would mean that you have convinced a significant number of Senators in both parties that the  acts which warrant impeachment must be exorcised and more importantly the people want this to be done.
The Republican Party have begun to do neither.  In fact it is doubtful that they could even muster all 45 Republican votes in the Senate if they should have to vote on Articles of Impeachment.
The reasons for these are political and illustrate a timidity and cluelessness  that make the party of Lincoln, TR, Eisenhower and Reagan,  political eunuchs of historical precedent.  They are so fearful of being labled  "racists" for rightfully beginning to build a case that is self evident, to impeach the worst, most dangerous and most destructive President in our history, that they are in a state of political paralysis.  Meanwhile the country and the people suffer.
They are fearful that a biased and ignorant Democratic/Progressive media will demonize them and they have developed no strategy or tactics to counter these accusations and neutralize them.  Worse, they behave as if the names their opponents call them are true so they either try to become "Democrat Lite" or they leave the field of battle all together.
In far too many states and localities they are unorganized and unable to back their candidates with either manpower or money in order to elect the people they nominate.  They do not act like a real party so often, that many citizens  have ceased to regard them as such.  In far too many instances they look to "rich" candidates who can self finance their campaigns thereby relieving the party of actually having to do what parties are supposed to do at their most basic level.  Democrats bring out their union and social justice shock troops  and the GOP pretend to mount a campaign with the eventual conclusion already preordained.
Republicans have allowed themselves to become defined by Democrats on almost every major issue facing the nation today.  On immigration... they are defined as being anti-Hispanic, on entitlement reform... they are anti-poor,  anti senior citizens and anti-disabled persons, on tax reform... they are pro rich, on maintaining a strong military ...they are war hawks, on   ObamaCare they are anti woman and racist, on Benghazi, the IRS, the NSA, Fast and Furious and  the VA... they are out to get the black President at any costs with phoney scandals,  Iraq is Bushes fault . Everything... the bad economy, the national security...educational failures... sky high college costs and the alleged damage to the environment are caused by Republicans who are stupid, evil, greedy and the puppets of the Koch brothers.
Over 40% of the country believe this BS and only the GOP itself can turn this around.  But instead of trying to begin to make this heavy lift, a large segment of the party decides to attack the Tea Party which is in reality are the shock troops that they need to counter those the Democrats seem to have in ample supply.
They attack their natural allies because they are threatened by them. The inbred consultant corps that feed off of losing GOP campaigns see their meal tickets in jeopardy.
I mean smaller accountable government living within its means and subject to the law while being able to insure the general welfare and provide for the common defense is somehow radical just like those Democrats claim!.
A political party is not a real party unless it has a coherent and shared set of principles with which to convince the voters that it is serious and worthy of their trust and vote. A party is not a party unless it can defend it self from scurrilous false attacks.  A party is not a real party unless it can fund and support its candidates in 21st century contests.  A party is not a real party if few or none can tell you what they stand for!  Today sadly the party has little or none of the above.  Any gains they make in 2014 will be because the Democrats have dramatically over reached in their race to socialism, progressivism and suicidal pacifism.  Any gains they make will be because they can articulate the sins of the past but not a cogent  vision of the future that addresses the real problems of real people in a real future.
