Republican leaders in both the U.S. House and the U.S. Senate have been openly challenged by individual members to their right within the last week. But the majority in each body appears, for the time being, to be closing ranks around their respective leaders.
Virtually nothing worthy has been passed by Congress over the last seven months since Republicans took control. That was extremely predictable. They have done virtually nothing to oppose and counteract what Obama is doing to the country.
The biggest donors to the party do not want fights to pass bills that would be of the most importance to social conservatives, limited government conservatives and constitutional conservatives within the GOP coalition. And these mega-donors call all of the shots.
For those who are tired of the GOP's lack of principle, and its failure to produce results on the issues that are of most importance to all of us, I invite you to take a look at the Constitution Party. It is organized around seven key principles-- sanctity of life; personal and religious liberty; the natural family; property rights; the Constitution itself; state's rights; and American sovereignty on matters related to border security and trade. And the people within the party are of one mind. Unlike the national Republicans and their donors, they are serious about the issues that are of importance.
