A member of the Republican National Committee told me Tuesday that when the RNC meets in an extraordinary special session next week, it will approve a resolution rebranding Democrats as the “Democrat Socialist Party.”
Seriously? Are they smoking crack? That’s all they can come up with?
It follows logically that they should now rebrand themselves as the “Repbulican Socialist Party” because all they seem to do is look at what the Democrats do and figure out how they can “Republicanize” it.
I was fearful that the backlash in 2010 was going to give Republicans a false sense of security. I was afraid it would make them feel like they really did have support of the people without changing much. I guess that won’t be an issue, because if this is all they can come up with, there won’t be much of a backlash.
Here are some better ideas of what they need to change. Forget “rebranding” anything. Choose any one of these issues, hammer it, and you’ll get a lot further than you will by calling the kettle black.
- Abolishing, or at least establishing Congressional audit of, the Federal Reserve. Support a move to a commodity backed currency.
- Support repealing the 16th Amendment and institute a flat tax, Fair Tax, or (better still) nothing
- Repeal the 17th Amendment
- Fight any proposal to nationalize/bailout anything with a unified voice
Here’s an example of what Republicans should be saying to us right now to win us over. Instead, they are just confirming our suspicions…
These people truly are too stupid to hold public office. And that, my friends, is saying something.
