It’s impossible to win a war with an army of weaklings, cowards, and traitors.

It’s time conservatives realize that the country moving to the tune of liberals, no matter who wins elections, is due not to the domination of the mainstream media (MSM), but to the weakness, dishonesty, or cowardice of Republican politicians.

Media frenzies like the recent one about religious freedom in Indiana are like push polls; they don’t last long.  How many anti-conservative MSM outbursts occurred prior to the 2014 elections, which the Republicans resoundingly won?  If MSM magic were determining elections, Republicans wouldn’t have won.

When the Republican speaker of the House surrenders to Nancy Pelosi and sets up a vote where a Democrat/RINO coalition overrides the majority of Republicans to fund something most Republicans ran against in the last election, we have to realize that it’s not the media that’s the problem.

Speaker Boehner epitomizes the modern RINO.

Think about it: Obama, Reid, and most other Democrats claim to be conservatives at election time.  Obama was for improving the economy and being bipartisan.  No mention of socialized medicine.

The congressional sweep in 2014 resulted from Republicans articulating conservative values: lowering taxes, ending ObamaCare, opposing executive amnesty.

Why do you think that Obama has always put off his biggest liberal actions until after an election?  If the MSM had convinced the voters that liberalism is good, then Obama would have brought out the liberal moves before the election.  Instead, the Democrats realize that the voters aren’t liberal, so they hide, or lie about, what they do.

While the impact of the MSM is real, it’s not what people think it is.  The real impact of the media is on the politicians.  Living in Washington and moving with the Washington cultural “elite,” too many Republicans begin to believe that what they hear from their consultant class friends and the Washington Post is true.

Those politicians begin to think they can’t get re-elected unless they downplay their conservative values.  Or they, like human beings everywhere, start drifting toward the positions held by the people they see and socialize with every day.

The vast majority of people in D.C. depend on big government for their jobs and their wealth; it’s no accident that D.C. is now the richest city in the country.  For every conservative Republican politician, there are probably hundreds of nice people who need a big government to thrive.  That’s the culture Republican politicians live in; they spend far more time in D.C. than back home where their conservative values are nurtured.

Think of how many good teenagers go to liberal colleges where they transmute into irrational liberals.  It’s the same phenomenon we’re seeing with Republicans in D.C.

The problem is that too many Republicans who go to D.C. as conservatives lack the support structure or moral fiber to stick to their beliefs when immersed in the D.C. culture.

Essentially, conservatives need to ensure that Republicans don’t “go native” in D.C.

It takes a tremendous amount of courage to speak conservative truths in D.C., where doing so will result in being mocked and reviled.  Cowardly Republicans will change their stands to avoid that sort of bullying.

Weak Republicans will succumb to the constant drumbeat of liberalism they hear from their D.C. “friends” and the MSM and become liberals.

Traitorous Republicans never believed in conservatism but have no problem lying to the voters in ordno rinoser to get elected.

We’ll never end the MSM faux firestorms – emotions and lies are liberalism’s lifeblood, – but we can work to select strong people for office and build them an environment where their beliefs can be nourished, not condemned.

Three key steps need to be taken to ensure that conservative votes count:

1) Make sure we pick candidates who have the guts to stay the course.

2) Provide a conservative cultural infrastructure for Republicans in D.C.

3) Make sure Republicans realize that no matter how nice a person a liberal might be, the causes that liberal pushes are bad.

The first point means conservatives need better vetting at the primary stage.  Republican candidates have to be principled first and politicians second.  In addition, it means that we need to throw out people like Representative Ellmers who have one set of beliefs at election time and another when they vote in Congress.  It’s better to have a Democrat with Democrat baggage in office than a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

The second point means that conservatives have to work to create a bubble of “flyover country” in D.C., ensuring that Republican politicians aren’t constantly being bombarded by liberal “friends.”  Conservative think-tanks and other groups should get together to provide a climate where Republican politicians can go to parties, play golf, etc. without being condemned in subtle ways for their “backwardness.”

We should also get Republican candidates to eschew the MSM. Between the blurring together of reporting and editorializing and the liberally slanted selection of what news to cover, no one can know what’s really going on in the world by reading the Washington Post or any other MSM source.  With the huge staffs that congressmen have and the information revolution of the internet, there is no reason why Republicans have to use last-millennium news sources.

Additionally, conservatives should work to find ways to keep politicians in their home states a larger fraction of the time.  It’s less likely that Republicans will be corrupted in the real America than in D.C.

The third point means that we need to realize that just as we can’t fight Islamofascism if we can’t even name it, Republican politicians can’t stay conservative and think that liberal politicians are not the enemy.

Sadly, it’s been a long time since the differences between conservatives and liberals were about things decent folks can honestly disagree about.  Liberals in D.C. want to grow poverty, keep blacks poorly educated, bring in millions of foreigners to keep wages down, kill the unborn, destroy marriage, abandon Israel and our allies, fund their cronies Chicago-style, and promote hedonism.  Sure, they’re nice to their wives and children, and to their animal companions, but so were plenty of dictators.

Republicans have to realize that even though Democrats are “nice,” they are not sources of anything trustworthy. Republicans don’t need to demonize Democrats – just view them as being less reliable than used car salesmen.

To win the war with liberals, conservatives need to elect strong people and armor them with a conservative-friendly environment in D.C.

By Lloyd Marcus — November 7, 2014

My lovely wife and I shared a victory toast and a kiss in front of the fireplace in the lobby of the hotel where we are staying in

Colorado, upon the announcement that the GOP won the Senate.  

Lloyd Marcus -Tea Party - American Patriot!

Lloyd Marcus -Tea Party – American Patriot!

Our Conservative Campaign Committee team has been here for weeks, working to elect Cory Gardner for U.S. Senate.  Gardner won!

Folks, please do not get me wrong: I am elated that the GOP has won control of the Senate.  Despite its faults, the GOP is closest to our principles and values.  Also, we desperately needed to dethrone evil madman Harry Reid as Senate majority leader.

However, I must confess that it was annoying to watch Karl Rove on TV pounding his chest in victory, proclaiming how he and his group pushed the Tea Party nut candidates out of the race.  Rove had the nerve to say he and his people wanted the best electable conservative candidates.  That simply is not true.

Chris McDaniel, to name one, in Mississippi was an awesome, extremely electable Tea Party conservative who was pushed out of the race with GOP dirty tricks, including race-baiting.  Yes, you heard me correctly.  The GOP establishment machine engaged in the Democrat-gutter, tried-and-true, despicable tactic of race-baiting to screw McDaniel.

I know.  I know.  You’re saying, C’mon, Lloyd, that’s in the past.  We won.  Celebrate and get over it. Sorry, folks.  I expect better from our side.

Rove and his deep-pocketed homeys’ strategy of the GOP keeping a low profile and letting Obama hang himself worked okay.  Unfortunately, exit polling revealed that the GOP is still viewed unfavorably by a majority of voters.  Given the horrors and scandals of the Obama regime, the Republican wave should have been a tsunami.  What if the GOP had offered an agenda inspiring people to vote for them rather than against Obama?  What if the GOP boldly articulated why conservatism is the best and most direct path for each and every American to achieve his or her American dream?

Two remarkable things happened this election that strongly suggest that blacks are open to hearing what conservatism has to offer over liberalism.  A video of urban blacks in Chicago trashing Obama and the Democrats went viral.  And my lifelong Democrat 86-year-old black dad called from Maryland to tell me that he did not like any of the candidates, but he voted Republican.  Folks, that is huge.  Dad has always believed that a vote for a Republican is a vote for the KKK.  So something is up.

Republicans now control the House and the Senate.  Praise God!  Now what?  Word on the political street is that the GOP plans to give the Tea Party the finger.

Patriots, we must be more mobilized and engaged than ever.  We must do everything in our power to push the GOP into doing what we worked our butts off for them to do: stop Obama’s agenda!

D.C. insiders say that the GOP strategy is not to push back too soon or too hard against Obama’s agenda, so as not to be called arrogant, aggressive, and mean by the MSM.  The game plan is to play nice with Obama so as not to hinder our chances of winning the White House in 2016.

These D.C. insiders also say that repealing Obamacare is impossible and that the best that we in the Tea Party can hope for is for the GOP to fix it.  Mitt Romney said that upon the GOP winning the Senate, an immigration bill would be top priority.  You see where this is headed, folks?  The GOP plans to go squishy on us and implement a Democrat-lite agenda.

We cannot and will not allow them to get away with it.  I am proposing that the united forces of the Tea Party launch “Operation Hold Their Feet to the Fire.”  Every individual, group, and organization must use their gifts, talents, skills, and passion to force the GOP to do the right thing.

Folks, we have brilliant minds on our side.  I have met many of you traveling on over a dozen national bus tours, attending over 400 Tea Party rallies.  I challenge you to think of strategic ways to turn the GOP’s agenda to our agenda: repeal Obamacare, secure our borders, return to fiscal responsibility, restore our freedom and liberty, and turn us back to one nation under God.

Ronald Reagan: “There is no limit to the amount of good you can do if you don’t care who gets the credit.”   Patriots, I am calling reagan nation under god or gone underfor an-all-hands-on-deck drill to save our country by holding the Republicans’ feet to the fire.  Frankly, I do not care which Tea Party group, organization, or individual leads the charge.  Let’s just get it done!

Everyone pulling together is how we (conservatives) won big in 2010, shocking Washington, D.C., despite being ignored by the MSM.

As I said, we are in Colorado, too busy campaigning to enjoy the world-renowned hot springs.  In celebration of the Republican wave, America’s push-back against socialism, we can relax a bit.  Mary and I plan to enjoy a few relaxing therapeutic soaks in the sulfur-smelling hot springs.

Then we will be ready to pack our bags and hit the road on a “Hold Their Feet to the Fire Tour.”  I have even written a soon to be released theme song.

I thank God for our victory.  But there is still much more work to be done – miles to go before we sleep.

Congrats, patriots: taking the U.S. Senate is a major step in the right direction.  Now, I don’t know why, but I feel compelled to end with this video of Kate Smith singing “God Bless America.”
