    The Times- They Are A Changin

    Change is a constant in nature, as well as in mankind's societies.

    Our country was founded on the concept of self-government, with the understanding that government was needed for a limited number of roles that all revolve around protecting our God-given rights to Life, Liberty- or the right to be left alone, and the protection of our personal property from all others, including government.

    The American version of this form of life on earth has proven to be the most popular and beneficial to ever bless mankind. We also learned over the years that the most effective way to communicate our needs and desires was through elected representatives who would join forces with other representatives of like mind and use their combined power of popular support to promote what is in the best interests of the most people.

    Somewhere along the line, this concept got lost, and priorities changed for too many in elected positions.

    Instead of working on behalf of those they represent, they now regularly work on behalf of those intent on protecting and promoting their self-interests.

    Party over principle is now considered of higher importance, and oligarchy is the goal as well as the driver of how decisions are arrived at.

    In the business and investment world, winning formulas are highly valued and greatly rewarded.

    A perfect example of this is the franchise concept. If you have the cash, and want a darn near guaranteed return on your investment, you can have it for a price. Franchises are nothing more than a time-tested, proven, winning business plan.

    And consequently, rarely does someone invest in one, like say, a McDonald's franchise, and then decide to ignore the plan and "do it my way". Those who would, are quickly and rightly viewed as fools- and in relatively short order, are out of business.

    So would someone please explain to me why, considering America's spectacular, remarkable, and historic success as the world's greatest nation ever- why anyone would, in their right mind- ignore the winning plan of our Constitution, and the operating procedures commonly referred to as our Founding Principles?

    In particular, the Republican Party was once regarded as the proud standard bearer of this franchise, but yet, has now determined this gold standard of governance is irrelevant.

    Are you kidding me?

    As a principled Conservative and a bit of a student of history, I find this to be embarrassingly stupid, and unbelievably popular. But I'm all about the freedom to choose your destiny, and will stand aside and allow this parade of complacent partisans to march into obscurity.

    But in my desire to fill the vacuum of lost leadership and logic, I will avidly pursue a course that reinvigorates an allegiance to our Constitution, and I will continue to be guided by our Founding Principles.

    And for those of you who remain comfortably aligned with a party that now stands for Gut Our Principles- I'll leave the door open to you for when you're once again most interested in principles over party.

    Until that time, don't take it personally if I ruffle your feathers, because I am neither blind to what has occurred, willing to stand silently and idly by, nor am I a hopeful follower of a post-Constitutional Republican Party that thinks their actions, policies and well-defined Progressive course are a mere aberration.

    Mr. Bos, you have no worries here at RightMichigan.com about any feathers being ruffled - especially mine.  Note RM's welcoming banner that boldly states "Unapologetically Right".  That is the bare-knuckled, unvarnished, highly principled, Conservative Truth.  I thank Jason for his acumen with managing this blog as it now being just that - unapologetic, uncompromising, and unequivocally Conservative.

    It is also high time a Man of Principle and Integrity clearly states for others what is f#@%ed up in this state's alleged GOP.  Thank you.  It is its corrupt leadership (Schostak, internally and externally with a complicit Snyder, Perfidious Calley, Richardville, and Bolger), and all its bootlicking, enabling following who perpetuates the undermining of Party Principle for expediency.  I have not forgotten the Tax Hike, nor those in the legislature who came on RM arguing for it.  I also do not ignore that Calley has a long history of betrayal.  It is time for the GOP to go the way of the Whigs or, go "unify" with Lon Johnson.

    However, I would not hold my breath with those clinging to the FEC crutch to join a Principled Party anytime soon.  They see it as so much wiser to straighten the pandering hunchback while they are stabbed in the back by liberal minded alleged allies both at the state and national level.  Nah, that isn't buying into the old boy Mush network, it's Liberaltarian principle!  F#@% 'em both.  Neither are Conservative.

    Mr. Bos, you are respected here.  I look forward to your further postings.  Let the light shine, Tim!
