We have become the enemy

The Conservative movement in the US has become the exact same thing we fought against for so many years. Our leaders have gone from wanting to defeating the corruption in DC to becoming a part of the corruption.

Too many have set their goals on gaining control of the leadership of the GOP.  By doing so they are now using the exact same actions that the current  moderate leadership has been using for years.

Many would rather lose an election if the candidate is not part of their group than to help the GOP gain more control and working with in the  party. True the moderates have made it hard to move up in the party hierarchy by placing Conservatives in lesser position and keeping them out of a position of power.  But helping get Democrats elected does not help the Conservative movement.

We have Party leaders who have openly assisted Democrats to win elections in order to keep their sect in power or to help gain power in the party. They feel a weaken GOP will give them the best chance of gaining power. Unfortunately too many of our Conservative leaders have taken this same position.  They will rather see Democrats win elections so they can come back and blame it on the moderate wing of the party. Telling their voters back home that they are the only one’s who can solve this issue.

We may not all believe the same way on all issues, but we do in enough that we should be able to come together for the better good. We cannot be a party of single issue voters. There is too much that we do agree on that we cannot allow a single issue to divide us.

The GOP voters have spoken and the largest part has chosen Trump as our candidate. He may not have gotten over 50% of the votes, He may not agree with some on every subject. But he is the man that our voters went to the polls to select. Getting pissed because your man did not win and acting like a spoiled brat will not change that. But it will help get a Democrat elected . You can either come together as a party and get a least part of what you want. Or you can allow single issue positions effect your vote and by doing so you will be helping to elect a Democrat.

ANY Democrat in the White House next year will have long term effect on the future of the US. There will be a chance to structure the SCOTUS for another generation. As is the current liberal wing of the SCOTUS has made it know they will vote according to their personal views regardless of the letter of the law.

A case going before the SCOTUS this term has to do with a law in Texas which requires  abortion clinics to meet the same requirements as every oth4er medical clinic in the state. Does nothing to restrict abortion in any ways. It only makes sure that  the abortion clinic will be safe. Requiring them to meet the exact same requirement as you neighborhood minor medical care clinic that you go to instead of going to emergency room.

The liberal wing of the SCOTUS has already declared it DOA even before arguments have been heard. This is the type of mentality you will see on the court for another 30 years if we allow a Democrat to be elected to the  White House in November.

We MUST put aside our minor differences and get behind the candidate that the voters have chosen to carry our banner. Does not mean we believe the same way they did on all the issues. We just need to agree with them on enough issues to prevent the Democrats from taking the White House. The Democrat voters base is not energized at the numbers they need right now. We need to come together and use that to help us take back the White House but to maintain if not increase our control of teh House and Senate.

So GROW UP and do what we need to do in order to win the White House NOW and then come back in two years and get out in mas to get more Conservatives in the House and Senate. Win at the local level and take control of the local GOP by numbers and then move on and add out numbers to the National Party. .We cannot gain more control of the party  by allowing Democrats to win races.

Irresponsible Parenting

Consider this scenario, a couple of your people meet at bar and hit it off, resulting in a long term relationship. A few years down the road they decided to start a family and they have a baby. One night the couple decide that they want to go out to the bars as they always have in the past. Have a few beers and do some dancing, just have some fun. Unable to find someone to watch the baby they decide to take the baby to the bar and leave it at their table while they enjoy the nights activities. I think we can all agree that that couple would find themselves in legal problems and could maybe even lose the child due to neglect.

OK how about instead of going to bars this same couple enjoyed skydiving as a form of recreation and they decided they wanted to go skydiving and again no baby sitter they strap the kid into a harness and jump from the plane with the kid in tow. Again very likely we would see the couple in deep trouble and possibly lose the kid.

Well what if instead of drinking and dancing or skydiving the couple has a cute two seat sports car that they enjoyed riding around in. Then instead of getting a larger car with room for a safety seat in the back seat they just hold the baby in their laps when they go someplace. Once again the odds are very good the couple would be in trouble and could be charge with child abuse and maybe even lose the child.

All of these scenarios are very rare in today’s world. Very few parents are this selfish to put their needs ahead of the needs of the child. However there is one place where this is becoming a larger problem with each passing year. The place is a place very dear to my heart, the local Saturday night race track. Not a year goes by that we do not see a thread on the local racing message board about people complaining that they have to pay full price to get their kid into the pits. When it is suggested that the pits are a work place and the kids should not be there we hear the same response. Well i do not want to sit in the stands or my wife does not want to sit in the stands.

The majority of the drivers at your local Saturday night track are not professional drivers. They work a 40 hour week elsewhere and this is their hobby. There are dozens of cars moving through the pits at any moment in time. A parents turns their head just for an instant and a toddler walks away and is in danger of being hit. Or a driver buckled inside a car is unable to see them due to their small size. Or as often seen kids as young as 8 years old are joy riding on three and four wheelers not paying attention to anything around them.  While in the pits drivers and workers are focused on the cars getting them prepared for the next race. It is a work place and not a social club. Parents who feel they have the right to bring their children to the pits of a race track are no less negligent than any of the other three examples of neglectful parents mentioned above. It is time for local race tracks across the US to look past that extra $25 pit fee and think of the well being of the children and everyone else who working in the pits. Time to set a strict age limit for pit access during the racing program. Do we need to see another child die needlessly before we do something. I wonder if a driver in Chicopee Mass now wishes that he didn’t bring his 2 year old daughter to the pits with him after the child was crushed between two cars. Wake up local Saturday night race tracks before there is another young life snuffed out because parents feel they didn’t want the extra bother of having to sit in the stands with their child.
