The Socialist Party

While I haven't had time to blog since this morning and now I'm tired out, I'm taking time right now because I consider this statement from Dana Loesch the quote of the day:

Last night, a new party was born; the malignant tumor that is the progressive caucus consumed the Democrat party from within and gave birth to the mainstream Socialist Party.
She has a lot more, and it's pretty hard-hitting stuff. I love the fact that she is not afraid to call socialism socialism; maybe if more people had, we wouldn't be in this pickle we're in right now.

We have to fight (and that includes worn out people like yours truly).

I'm with you. As an American Sailor once said:

I have not yet begun to fight.

Well his ship was getting pounded and his main batteries were out of action (exploding guns were causing more damage to his ship than to the enemy). Grappling with the enemy was his only recourse.

With Bonhomme Richard burning and sinking, it seems that her ensign was shot away; when one of the officers, apparently believing his captain to be dead, shouted a surrender,[14] the British commander asked, seriously this time, if they had struck their colors. Jones later remembered saying something like "I am determined to make you strike", but the words allegedly heard by crew-members and reported in newspapers a few days later were more like: "I may sink, but Iíll be damned if I strike."

The worst part?
We need to rely on Republicans to save us.

We are so screwed.

I went to a Republican meeting for the first time in my life this noon. I even plunked down $25 to join the county Republican Party.

As far as I can tell, the Republicans need all the help that the Tea Partiers and small-l-libertarians can give them. Nobody but the Republicans, warts and all, have the national organization we need to fight this on a political basis. If the Libertarian Party or one of the other right-ish political parties had any prayer of really doing something, it would be different. But it's not.

"You go to elections with the political party you have, not the political party you wish you had."

Also . . .

"We must, indeed, all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately."

I think that now is not the time for "social conservatives," "fiscal conservatives," libertarians, and truly individual-liberty-loving liberals to argue about who's going to lead the parade. We know the tool we're going to have to use, and that tool is the Republican Party--warts and all.

We are screwed. And the only people who can un-screw it are the people who look at us in the mirror every morning.
