GOP And The World Of Tomorrow

The mid-terms are just weeks away and there is much confusion on which way the votes will break…..will the country go back 70 years or will we look forward to the future?

The country as we have known it is at stake….is the end near?

It appears that all interest in the mid-terms is just not there…..and that makes me think that the results is all but sealed…..

Let’s look at the world of tomorrow if it breaks towards the GOP……

The party has issued its plan for the near future with a win and control of Congress…

House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy on Friday directly confronted President Biden and the party in power, choosing battleground Pennsylvania to unveil a midterm election agenda with sweeping Trump-like promises, despite the House GOP’s sometimes spotty record of delivering and governing in Congress. McCarthy, who’s poised to seize the speaker’s gavel if Republicans win control of the House in November, hopes to replicate the strategy that Speaker Newt Gingrich used to spark voter enthusiasm and sweep House control in a 1994 landslide. The House GOP’s “Commitment to America” gives a nod to that earlier era but updates it in the age of Donald Trump, with economic, border security, and social policies to rouse the former president’s well of supporters, per the AP.

“What we’re going to roll out today is a ‘Commitment to America’ in Washington—not Washington, DC, but Washington County, Pa.,” McCarthy said at a manufacturing facility, standing with a cross-section of other lawmakers. “Because it’s about you, it’s not about us.” He offered a portrait of party unity despite the uneasy coalition that makes up the House minority—and the Republican Party itself. Propelled by Trump’s “Make America Great Again” voters, the Republicans need to pick up just a few seats to win back control of the House and replace Speaker Nancy Pelosi, though McCarthy’s ability to lead the House is far from guaranteed. McCarthy spent more than a year pulling together the House GOP’s often warring factions—from the far-right MAGA to what’s left of the more centrist ranks—to produce a mostly agreed-upon agenda.

Gingrich has been working with McCarthy and his team to craft the style and substance of the proposal. Mostly, the GOP pocket card hits broad strokes—energy independence, security, and an end to liberal social policies, particularly in schooling. Conservative Republicans, however, complain privately that McCarthy isn’t leaning hard enough into their priorities, as he tries to appeal to a broader swath of voters and hold the party together. Dems, meanwhile, aren’t impressed at all with the GOP’s agenda. “Long on slogans and short on details,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., told union workers in Pittsburgh on Friday, according to excerpts of his speech. “That’s because the true details of Republicans’ agenda are too frightening for most American voters.”

Then there is the Constitution thing…..they want to re-write the document and not in a good way….

… former Democratic U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold wrote in an op-ed at The Guardian that Article 5 of the U.S. Constitution allows the document to be amended, either with amendments being proposed by two-thirds of Congress and ratified by three-quarters of the states, or through a method that has never been tested: the establishment of a new constitutional convention.

To hold a new convention, two-thirds of all state legislatures—34 total—must apply to hold the gathering, where lawmakers would have broad freedom to change the Constitution however they saw fit. Three-quarters of states would have to ratify their proposed amendments.

“The right has already packed the Supreme Court and is reaping the rewards, with decisions from Dobbs to Bruen that radically reinterpret the Constitution in defiance of precedent and sound legal reasoning,” wrote Feingold, referencing recent rulings on abortion rights and gun control. “But factions of the right are not satisfied to wait for the court to reinterpret the constitution. Instead, they have set their sights on literally rewriting our foundational document.”

There is so much more at stake than a election of a few far right slugs….they could change the very country into something that was never intended by those far thinking Founders.

You have the power to protect this country from radical change….that is thinking that you want to save this country.

  1. Terrific post…forget political parties, just look at what certain people want to impose on others if given power…do you want ANYONE to have the power to control what you’d do and with you and when and how? Taking away personal liberties and freedoms goes against all that we stand for yet it is at the heart of these policy plans…be warned indeed – Roe v. Wade should have been enough of a warning.
