In lieu of the Flint water crisis, our very own Governerd, Rick Snyder, has become the focal point of national fury. While grassroots patriots have hated him for many years for his Medicaid expanding, Common Core pushing, tax hiking, socialism-loving ways, the rest of the country is following suit! But what has dismayed me is to see many conservative Republicans defending this turkey. What gives?
To a certain extent, I understand the inclination to defend him. It’s not like Democrats have been fair with their attacks. They have made it into a racial issue, of course. The fat idiot Michael Moore interjected himself into the mess, and everybody hates that guy. They have shirked the blame from the corrupt and incompetent local Democratic city officials, and made Snyder the fall guy. By doing so, they have given grassroots patriots a golden ticket.
Usually we in the conservative movement are fighting millions of liberals tooth and nail to get anything done. This time we have millions of liberals who will potentially do our bidding. There is a common cause that has formed between us. They want to get rid of Snyder because they see him as a child-poisoning, neglectful monster. We want to get rid of him because he is an oathbreaker who made a mockery of the Republican Party platform. This is a clear win/win that we must be smart enough to embrace.
Don’t fall into the trap of defending this guy. He injured your pocket book the same way he injured those children in Flint by hiking taxes and spending to astronomical levels. He ravaged you with the Medicaid expansion. He bailed out Detroit. He raised the minimum wage. He pushed Common Core. He palled around with radical Islam. He has laughed in your face repeatedly as he has disgraced you at every turn. Now it’s payback time. Let’s not squander it due to petty partisanship.
Here is something else that should get your blood boiling: Ronna the RINO’s media blitz to defend the child-poisoning nerd. Snyder is at least partially responsible for an embarrassing tragedy that has shamed the Michigan and the Republican Party on a national level, and Ronna seems to think it’s water under the bridge. Meanwhile, she treats Dave Agema like a leper because he posted some mean words on social media. Agema was thrown to the wolves for merely expressing his honest opinion while Snyder poisons an entire town and everything is hunky dory in establishment land. I guess you really can get away with anything when you are a part of the good ol’ boys club.
Reaching across the aisle to oust Snyder has additional benefits as well. This will not only disgrace Snyder, but will also disgrace his RINOs-in-Training Bill Schuette and Brian Calley who are poised to keep the Snyder legacy going after he jumps to Washington D.C. Frankly, Schuette belongs in a jail cell for what he did to Mark Baker and his family. He would be tainted with the negative legacy of Snyder if he was disgracefully booted from office. So would Calley. It would be much easier to take the Republican Party in a much more conservative direction with Snyder out of the way, and that goal is within our grasp.
Confused detractors to this common sense plan will pull out the tiresome ‘lesser of two evils’ canard. They will scare you with horror stories about the Democrats. They will say that the Democrats will come in, hike spending, institute new taxes, bailout liberal wastelands like Detroit, promote socialized medicine, do Obama’s bidding on education, and so on…. Oh wait, that is what Snyder has done throughout his tenure as Governor! He has done a better job of carrying Obama’s water in Michigan than a Democrat ever could. With Snyder disposed, we could actually have a Republican legislature that acts as a brake against these liberal policies rather than giving them a rubber stamp because of the Governerd’s arm-pulling.
If you still have feelings of sympathy toward Snyder, ask yourself these questions: Would you have accepted his excuses from Hillary? Would you have accepted his excuses from Obama? If not, then why the double standard? Snyder put the Emergency Manager system into place in an arrogant show of contempt for the voters who rejected it. It took a disastrous situation in Flint with the bankruptcy and the destitution and made it drastically worse with an environmental meltdown of catastrophic proportions. He needs to be held accountable. And now there is a bipartisan effort emerging to make it happen. Let’s seize destiny while we can and make a better future out of this mess our government has created.
The GOP establishment gang has talked about ‘unity’ ad nauseum. Now it’s time to give them what they have asked for, good and hard, as we unite behind the noble cause of throwing Snyder under the bus for his crimes.
