Why is it that Republicans can’t understand fully repealing Obamacare is a winning issue? Why are they too scared to even cut funding to the UN and the PLO?
In this episode of the Conservative Conscience, Daniel uses this week’s legislative betrayals as examples to demonstrate why Republicans always betray their topline campaign promises. 1) they don’t understand or have knowledge of constitutional conservative principles and free market policies; 2) they often don’t believe in it; 3) even if they believe and understand them, their political barometer – the understanding of what is and is not a winning issue – is completely broken; 4) the legislative process is so complex and “inside baseball” that they can manipulate voters into thinking they are doing the opposite of what they are actually enacting.
This is the reason why Republicans are scared to repeal Obamacare in a meaningful way. And this is how they are able to fool us.
Also, Daniel explains how Republicans were too scared to go on offense even against the UN and the PLO this week, opting to pass a resolution that gave Democrats cover and essentially codified Kerry’s obsession with the illogical “two state solution” into U.S. policy. If we can’t defund the PLO, then what can we do? Yet, given their broken political barometer, Republicans plan to bring legislation to the floor punishing the countries that voted for the UN resolution (such as Senegal and New Zealand) but not the PLO itself!
This is why conservatives can’t hope for change this year or assume there will be change. They must fight for it and demand change.
“There are so many smart stupid people in politics because they can’t break free of the existing paradigm and are stuck in an intellectual ghetto.”
“You can’t fight if you don’t have a proper political barometer, you can’t have a proper political barometer if you don’t believe in the right things, and you can’t believe if you don’t understand the issue.”
