    Liz Cheney: Republicans, Get Over the 2012 Loss—and Start Fighting Back
    Those who counsel that the GOP should move left are wrongheaded or Democrats, or both.

    ------------------------------
    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. The only way they can inherit the freedom we have known is if we fight for it, protect it, defend it and then hand it to them with the well-taught lessons of how they in their lifetime must do the same. And if you and I don't do this, then you and I may well spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it once was like in America when men were free."

    —Ronald Reagan, March 30, 1961

    -------------------------------

    President Reagan's words, spoken 52 years ago this weekend, still ring true, with one modification. If we don't defend our freedoms now against the onslaught of President Obama's policies, we won't have to wait until our sunset years for American freedom to be a distant memory.

    These days Washington careens from crisis to crisis, most of them manufactured. The Obama White House and its allies are engaged in the kind of sky-is-falling melodrama normally reserved for the lives of teenage girls. (As the mother of teenage girls, I speak with authority on this, though the comparison does a disservice to teenagers.) With our attention diverted by each fiscal cliff or sequestration drama, we are at risk of missing the real threats to the republic.

    President Obama is the most radical man ever to occupy the Oval Office. The national debt, which he is intent on increasing, has passed $16 trillion. He believes that more government borrowing and spending are the solution to every problem. He seems unaware that the free-enterprise system has lifted more people out of poverty than any other economic system devised by man.

    Perhaps his ignorance of that fact explains his hostility toward the private sector. >>>

    The president has launched a war on Americans' Second Amendment rights. He has launched a war on religious freedom. He has launched a war on fossil fuels. He is working to nationalize one-sixth of the economy with job-killing ObamaCare. He wants to collect a greater portion of every American paycheck, not for the purpose of paying down the national debt but to expand his governing machine. He doesn't believe in creating a bigger pie with more opportunity for all. He believes in greater redistribution of a much smaller pie. >>>

    The president has so effectively diminished American strength abroad that there is no longer a question of whether this was his intent. He is working to pre-emptively disarm the United States. He advocates slashing our nuclear arsenal even as the North Koreans threaten us and the Iranians close in on their own nuclear weapon. He has turned his back on America's allies around the world and ignored growing threats. >>>

    In the face of this reality, it is time for Republicans to get over their loss in 2012. We are all that stands between this president's policies and a damaged and diminished America. It is time to get back in the fight.

    And I do mean fight. Republicans are being counseled to move the party to the left, but in my experience, those who advocate more liberal policies for the GOP are wrongheaded or Democrats, or both. You can be sure that President Obama would welcome an America in which the Republican Party is preoccupied with remaking itself into a watered-down version of the Democrats.

    It is time to defend our values with vigor and courage. We are conservatives. We believe in limited government, low taxes, a strong national defense, individual freedoms, self-reliance, the importance of the family, and the miracle and authority of America's founding documents. We know that government is best that governs least and governs closest to the people. We know that the private sector is the engine of economic growth. We know that America is the exceptional nation, the best that has ever existed. We know that the men and women who wear the uniform of the U.S. military are the greatest fighting force and the greatest force for good that the world has ever known.

    We know that preventing this president from enacting devastating policies is not obstructionism. It is patriotism.

    This woman apparently holds the Constitution in higher regard and has more testicular fortitude than all the GOP leadership combined. You'd think these 'girly men' could at least hide behind her or Sarah Palins skirt if they if they find themselves too cowardly to stand up for liberty anymore.

    Liberalism is just communism sold by the drink.

    Bronco promised to "fundamentally change" America and that's precisely what he and his lackies, including a lot of repubs in DC, are intent on doing. They are full blown communist and they intend to transform the United States into a communist dictatorship. They'll start the roundups of the 'radical right wingers' as soon as they are able to pass oppressive gun legislation. After that, resistance to the regime will be ineffectual and dealt with severely. Then, what's left of the population will live in daily fear of being dragged away during the dead of night for unknown crimes against the state:

    First they came for the gun owners and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a gun owner.

    Then they came for the Christians and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Christian.

    Then they came for the capitalists and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a capitalist.

    Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak for me............................
