Just like many Democrats when Ronald Reagan was elected President, conservatives in the Republican party are stating a familiar claim. That they are not leaving the party but the party left them.
How true today with the GOP scrambling to keep its members. The philosophy of a big tent has been abused and moderates are running amok. Its not just that the moderates have a view that is lesser in conservatism it is that the moderates are proving they are disingenuous. The Republican party stands for less government, less taxes and more individual freedoms.
Is it possibly that those Republicans who claim to be moderates are really insurgents from the Democratic Party? That these candidates and elected officials were planted to dismantle the conservatives within is a modern day reality of the movie "The Enemy Within"?
Representative Joseph Cao "Don't tell the Republicans but I might be a closet Democrat". is a perfect example of an enemy within. The Republican Party for over the last 10 years has become sissy-like when it comes to lower taxes, federalism and control of government spending. True conservatives no longer have the patience nor the tolerance for Republicans who will sell out the basic philosophy of the party.
The GOP has a real problem because this split between moderates showing more and more the disingeniousness of their republican ideals and the conservatives who believe in the basic principles of freedom, will sooner rather than later have a complete dismantling of the GOP. And conservatives will create a major thrid party that is stronger and more formidable. A party which the whole of the American people can and will support.
In this political day and age it is no longer a matter of finding a middle. It is no longer a matter of gray areas. It is a matter of right versus wrong. It is a matter of left versus right. it is a matter of liberal versus conservative. It is a matter of socialism versus federalism. It is a matter of states rights versus federal government control.
It is a matter of liberty versus tyranny.
