More and more the left side reveals its mission to undercut the principles within the Republican Party
A guy who has (as far as I know) never held a REAL private sector job, never owned a business, seems to travel the world on pixie dust, and is a persistent cancer within the Republican party has now hit the pancreas. When Dennis Lennox says:
Instead of falling into the left’s trap, Republicans should go on the offensive with a bold manifesto focused on creating opportunities that not only raises the minimum wage — an increase to $12 would impact 40 percent of working Americans — but reforms welfare and reduces taxes on main street innovators, entrepreneurs and job creators.
It has to be a trap itself.
It has to be a “let’s see if the real conservatives in Michigan will stand up and call me what I am; an imbecile of the first order” kind of trap. Such that If one were to fall for it, would certainly have one making bold statements of appropriate resolve. One that invites such slanderous invective, that if used, could be a fax copy away to a judge for summary ‘stare decisis.’
Fortunately, its a lot simpler and less costly to declare the idea a bone headed socialist reach around of the most despicable type. Its the kind of idea that gives lead paint eating compulsiveness a good name. The kind that confuses the weaker minds in a righteous movement, and emboldens the diseased minds in that which is not. Indeed, the ‘manifesto’ he promotes might better be copied directly from here:
“The increasing improvement of machinery, ever more rapidly developing, makes their livelihood more and more precarious; the collisions between individual workmen and individual bourgeois take more and more the character of collisions between two classes.”
So certainly, we MUST reduce those collisions in order to build the party comrades!
From the Bourgeois to the Proletariat and very, very soon! For the Party exists only to grow itself didn’t you know? Isn’t that what he says? His screed continues:
“Yet increasingly it seems to be the right who has lost touch with reality by failing to understand that the sole purpose of a political party is to win elections.”
The ‘right’ as he describes those who are [quite obviously] not himself, understand that winning means nothing with no prize.
If the objectives of having the party is to grow the party, then what is the objective of growing the party? If the party were all of a sudden large and as diverse as Mr. Lennox would desire, would it then have a mission to carry out? Or would the leadership of such an organization simply bleat triumphant, and describe their mighty feat?
Certainly it wouldn’t be to control and limit government. That mission would be abandoned if as Lennox suggests, the hammer of government could be used to crush those business owners who don’t have jobs available that could pay for themselves at $12 and hour. As an employer, a raise of the minimum wage beyond what I am willing to pay, means the employees are gone.
Even if the efforts would be made to control and limit as he suggests by reforms on welfare and reducing taxes on “main street innovators, entrepreneurs and job creators,” he forgets that regulatory chains ARE taxes. They cost resources to implement, and have no practical end game, but to equalize and control.
And welfare reform is lost already. The wholly Republican legislature allowed the implementation of the largest welfare and social manipulation program that never would have seen the light of day under the last administration with only a Republican controlled senate.
And Main street innovators? Entrepreneurs?
Who might those folks be? Certainly not Lennox. The only thing he is selling is re-branded redistributive doctrine, sugar coated in political correctness, with a painted elephants tail on it, and a need to feel like he is relevant any longer.
If Republicans even hint at agreeing to an increase in Minimum wage, its all over for the Grand Old Party that already strides the precipice.
And maybe that is what the little donkeys want.
