Capitulation Monkeys Posing as Republicans

The Republican leadership in the House and Senate is no more than a sad joke on Conservatives and people who still believe in the two party paradigm.
 They have not defunded Obamacare, they have not led an effective investigation  into the fraud and corruption during the Obama administration. They affirmed all of the inept Obama appointments. They have not curbed the record government spending and national debt.
 They are very busy punishing members of the party who do not toe the line. Go along to get along, or else. These younger members were sent to DC to enact change, not give us more of the same. If the GOP continues this behavior, these young freedom minded candidates should break away and form a Freedom party based on individual freedoms, less government, balance the budget, pay down the debt by 1% each year until it is gone, that would be the beginning.
 The party could refuse to accept any money from lobbyists and corporations. No foreign money, no raises for anyone in the legislative and executive branches until the debt was paid down. All legislators, government employees, judges, etc go on Obamacare or repeal it.
 I could go on for hours, but you get my general drift. We need change and not more of the same, or we will soon become Greece and then Rome. Maybe something even worse.

Thomas Jefferson 
knew because he himself studied the previous failed attempts at government.
He understood
actual history, the nature of God, His laws and the nature
of man. That happens to be way more than what most understand
today.
 
Jefferson really 
knew his stuff.
 
A voice from the 
past to lead us in the future:
 
John F. Kennedy 
held a dinner in the White House for a group of the brightest minds
in the nation at that time. He made this statement: "This is perhaps
the assembly of
the most intelligence ever to gather at one time in
the White House with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined
alone."
 
 
"When we 
get piled upon one another in large cities, as in
Europe,
we shall 
become as corrupt as Europe .."--
Thomas 
Jefferson
 
"The 
democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those
who are 
willing to work and give to those who would not."
-- 
Thomas
Jefferson
 
"It is 
incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes.

principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the
world."

-- 
Thomas
Jefferson
 
"I 
predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government
from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of
them."
-- 
Thomas
Jefferson
 
"My 
reading of history convinces me that most bad government
results 
from too much government."--
Thomas 
Jefferson
 
"No free 
man shall ever be debarred the use of
arms."
--
Thomas 
Jefferson
 
"The 
strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms
is,
as a 
last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in
government."

-- 
Thomas
Jefferson
 
"The 
tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to
time
with the 
blood of patriots and tyrants."--
Thomas 
Jefferson
 
"To 
compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he
disbelieves
and 
abhors is sinful and tyrannical."
--
Thomas 
Jefferson
 
Thomas 
Jefferson said in 1802:
 
"I 
believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than
standing armies.
 
If the 
American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their
currency,
first by 
inflation, then by deflation,
the 
banks and corporations that will grow up around
the banks
will 
deprive the people of all property -
until 
their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers
conquered."

Donald Trump

Love or hate the man, he is making other politicians take specific stands on issues they are not comfortable with discussing. Him entering into the fray is a good thing in that regard. This will smoke them all out of their comfortable scripted positions on the issues facing America.
 Bernie Sanders is doing much the same thing on the other side of the political spectrum.
