Here is an excerpt of a panel discussion recently. Jason Chavetz and Ann Coulter were on the panel. This is what they had to say:
“You see that with the left and the elite conservatives in the Republican Party that don’t want an honest dialogue about the successes of this president,” said Chaffetz. “Instead of joining together and moving forward with specific goals to restore getting wins in the midterms, they are being disruptive in a haphazard way.”
Coulter took her disdain to a deeper level.
“I completely agree with you that we need to disband the official Republican Party. That was the point you were making, and I completely agree. I’m sorry Representative,” Coulter said, turning to Chaffetz.
I was stunned the other day when I heard Kevin McCarthy call himself a conservative. But then, I should not have been since people like Ryan, McConnell, and McCain have also referred to themselves as conservative.
The media and most of America would have us believe that the Republican Party is a party for the conservative and the Democrat party is a party for the liberal. Both assertions are incorrect. The Democrat Party has become a party that supports the doctrines of Karl Marx and the implementations of said doctrines. The Republican Party has become a party of useful idiots that would profess they oppose Marxist doctrine but will willing compromise what they claim to believe so they are not viewed derogatorily be the politically correct forces. That defines the Republican establishment members like McCarthy, Ryan, McConnell, and McCain as “useful idiots” by the left and liars by conservatives.
An Individualist (Conservative) and Collectivist (Democrat, Marxist, Socialist, Progressive, and Liberal) can be differentiated by how they view the rights and responsibilities of the individual and how they view the powers and limitations of government.
The Conservative views the development of the individual as not being something that can be directed by outside forces. Every individual, for their own good and for the good of society, is responsible for their own development. The choices that govern their life are choices they must make; they cannot be made by any other human being, or by a collective of human beings such as government. The Conservative looks upon politics as the art of achieving the maximum amount of freedom for individuals within the confines of a social order.
The Collectivist views the federal government as the whole people organized to do what must be done. The useful idiot says that if a job must be done to meet the need of the whole people, then it is the proper function of the federal government to meet that need. As you can see, there is not much difference between the two. As you can also see, neither of these falls under the definition of limited government nor do they adhere to the limitations of government in the United States Constitution.
The Constitution was drafted for the sole purpose of limiting the role of government and protecting the freedom of the individual. Government, throughout history has always been the single biggest threat to the freedom. The Conservative will always place the freedom of the individual above the mandates of government. He who supports the growth of government, both financially and in scope, is not an Individualist or a Conservative.
The Republican Establishment now advocates for the growth of government financially and in scope. We Conservatives, if we are to adhere to our belief in the principles set forth in the Declaration of Independence, The Constitution of the United States, and the Bill of Rights, we must denounce the Republican Establishment and promote a Republican Party that adheres to that overwhelming principle that our freedoms are from our Creator and not from man; the role of government is to protect those freedoms and not to infringe upon them or to totally nullify them.
This is what I believe both Chavetz and Coulter were advocating.
