For John, BLUF: Change comes dripping slow. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From Town Hall we have a look at whinging amongst Conservatives, "Knock Off The Loser Talk. This Fight Hasn’t Even Begun". This is from Author Kurt Schlichter and it is from a week ago, 9 March.
Part of this is about the question of if "Conservatives" and "Libertarians" should form a "Third Party". Mr Schlichter's answer is no. So is mine.
Here are the intro paragraphs, which lay out the situation fairly accurately.
Oh my goodness, the 2014 election victories didn’t end the war! You mean the progressives are still out there dreaming of a future full of hugs and goosestepping? You mean the GOP Establishment hasn’t just given up its power and knelt before us, begging to be forgiven for its craven crony corporatism? You mean the fight’s not over?And, of course, he has a book to sell us, explaining in greater detail the fight ahead.
No, the fight’s not over. So stop whining that you can’t go back to sitting on your rear end – we have a long campaign ahead. I know you’re tired. I know you’re frustrated. And I don’t care.
Some people want to throw in the towel just as we are approaching the knockout. News flash: Our opponents punch back. Time to take the hit and drive on.
We’re winning, only we haven’t won yet. So pick up your (figurative) weapons and follow me. The fight’s up ahead, and we’re going to keep moving to the sound of the guns.
I didn’t title my book Conservative Insurgency: The Struggle to Take America Back 2009 – 2041 because I thought we would have this all wrapped up last November.Frankly, it is the nature of Democracy for change to come slow. It is in a tyranny that change comes swiftly, and often not well thought out or helpful to the vast majority.
