After the November 6th election, I am convinced that the Obama regime will increase its attempts at mind control. Republican activists will be especially targeted. So in an effort to protect my brain from invasive government mind control rays, I have constructed a metallic foil cranial radiation deflection device or tinfoil hat. I am writing this post because as I see it, all kidding aside, in the Iowa GOP today — tinfoil hats are all the rage. It is no secret that the Iowa GOP is divided into factions. The divisions we are experiencing are as strong as any I have seen during my time in the party.
In a previous post, I referred to the factions as the gods, the mods and the pauls. Others have identified or labeled factions as: paulbots, establishment, tea party, populist, RINO, political industry, power brokers, liberty, evangelical, etc. It doesn’t matter what labels you apply, we are a party divided.
In this political season, there have been a lot of threats to take our ball and go home …
I have heard some say that Ron Paul was the only hope to beat Obama and if the party failed to come to their senses and nominate him, they would leave the party. Some of those same people who left the party or at the very least did not support the nominee are now pointing fingers saying, “see you chose the wrong guy.”
There are others who look at the Ron Paul influence at RPI and say, we’re not writing any more checks. Some of these same people are now pointing fingers saying, “see you can’t raise funds.”
Everyone is looking for a conspiracy. I know one thing to be true, if you look had enough for a conspiracy, you are certain to find one. I have mentioned two on this blog. First, when the SCC decided to give money to every GOP legislative candidate, those outside the paul faction dutifully put on their tinfoil hats and said:
Conspiracy, conspiracy! The paulbots are just trying to funnel money to so-called ‘Liberty’ candidates who otherwise couldn’t raise a dime.
The second case was when the governor suggested that the Straw Poll may have outlived its usefulness. The paul faction dutifully put on their tinfoil hats and said:
Conspiracy, conspiracy! The establishment is just trying to silence the grassroots and the voice of the people so they and their corporate buddies can choose the nominee.
This post is a plea for sanity. 2014 will soon be upon us. We have all the statewide races, 4 congressional seats, and a senate seat to worry about. We also want to build our majority in the Iowa House and gain the majority in the Iowa Senate. All across Iowa, our party will need to fight for local GOP candidates as well. We do not have time for these internecine battles.
While we have our tinfoil hats on, I do want to point out a conspiracy that worries me:
Conspiracy, conspiracy! The Democrats are out to increase our taxes, they have not shown a willingness to cut spending. The number of people on government assistance has increased, they want to force businesses and even churches to provide services that violate their moral values. They believe they have a mandate to raise taxes on the ‘rich’. …
Now, if only I knew how to combat the effects of chemtrails …
