    • The GOP Is Dying Because The LibertyMovement Is ThrivingBrandon SmithAlt MarketDec 6, 2012To the point of causing intestinalconvulsions, there has been no shortageof analysis on the elections of 2012.Every no-name mop-head mainstreammedia hack with a niche audience has putin his or her two cents on the finale ofperhaps the biggest non-event of thedecade and almost every single one ofthem has been depressingly wrong orcompletely disingenuous – but perhapsthis was to be expected. The word“journalist” has today becomesynonymous with “whore”, simplybecause success in the field makeswhoredom essential. The job of newsoutlets is not to report on the facts, but tofashion an illusory world out of manurebricks and glossy paint, and this isexactly what they have done in their musing on the fate of the GOP.For any saucer-eyed skeptic who still believes that all disinformation is mere coincidence or personalbias rather than an engineered and coordinated conspiracy, I would like to point out the sudden, similarand simultaneous conclusions of MSM pundits in the wake of Barack Obama’s “victory” in November.You would think that there would be hundreds if not thousands of conflicting ideas about what reallyhappened this year, but instead, Americans are being presented with a chorus of identical viewpoints.One meme that is being spread widely in the mainstream that I do actually agree with is that the Republican Party is “dying”. Oh yes, this is undoubtedly true. The GOP is on the fast track to the stew pot (or maybe another pot), but what the mainstream fails to mention is that this is something that alternative analysts in the Liberty Movement have been predicting for years, long before the name “Barack Obama” ever haunted the dreams of average Republicans, and this raises an important question; what did the alternative media see that the mainstream media missed? The primary root of all the dysfunctional observations of the GOP is that most
    • people today have no clue what conservatism is,and therefore, they have no idea how todiagnose problems in the Republican Party (aninstitution which is supposed to representconservative values). You don’t send alawnmower repairman to examine a cancerridden human being, you send a doctor whoknows what a healthy body is supposed to looklike. You also don’t send a hardcore liberal or aNeo-Con flunky to comment on the failings ofthe GOP; you send a true conservative whoknows how a healthy conservative organizationis supposed to function. And, the only peopleleft in this country who actually understand whatconservatism really is are Liberty Movementactivists.Ironically, those of us in the movement whohave deeply considered the election aftermathhave predominantly concluded that it is WE whohave taken the mojo out of the GOP, and frankly,we’re happy to do so…The GOP is dying because it no longer supports or nurtures the progress of true and traditionalconservative values or the people who hold them. The GOP is fading into the bowels of politicalhistory because real conservatives are LEAVING it behind, and searching for other more legitimateavenues. These are the cold hard facts which the establishment and those who aid in its dominancehave tried to keep out of the mainstream limelight post election. They have concocted a swarm ofunsupported and absurd talking points which have been unleashed shotgun-style on the unsuspecting American populace. Their goal? To hide the fact that the Liberty Movement has gained enough momentum to bury the Neo-Con led GOP and even swing state contests at will, simply by not participating in the farce. During the 2010 mid-term elections, there was a mass resurgence in conservative voting based almost entirely on Tea Party optimism. Some might argue that the Tea Party was a sham, and I would have to agree…to a point. The Tea Party didn’t start out that way (I know because I was involved during its inception). In the beginning it was a legitimate force for reduced government power and spending, and
    • increased protection for civil liberties revolving mainlyaround the campaign of Ron Paul. That changed,though, when Neo-Con elites began weaseling their wayinto the club, gushing about how they loved freedom.What these vermin do not understand, though. is thatit takes more than rhetoric to hold onto LibertyMovement voters; you also have to back your wordswith action, and this is exactly why some careerRepublicans were shown the door in 2012. Notbecause the Democrats were a better choice, butbecause the Republicans had not lived up to thepromises they made two years ago. Neo-Con toadieswould, of course, sneer at my observations, and tell acompletely different story on why they are losers…Let’s take a look at just a few of the mainstream media and GOP leadership arguments and propagandainitiatives and why they are shameless fabrications meant to hide Liberty Movement influence…Lie #1: U.S. Demographics Are Changing And The GOP Platform Does Not Appeal ToMinorities The MSM and others are essentially suggesting that only white people will ever vote Republican, and by association, that only white people value conservatism and Constitutionalism. They are also cleverly and subconsciously implanting the idea that most minorities will only ever vote for a socialist and statist candidate (like Obama) in the future, or, that they will vote based entirely on skin color. That is to say, they are inferring that minority voters are predominantly narrow minded and stupid, and are also promoting a fabricated division based on race. To illustrate why the demographics argument is a lie, I would like to use the examples of Allen West and Denny Rehberg; both high value Republicans in state races who “unexpectedly” lost to the Democrats. Allen West, a black male candidate for the 22nd Congressional District of Florida, ran on a “Tea Party limited government platform” in 2010, and won by a margin of around 20,000 votes over Ron Klein, a white male Democrat. In 2012, West ran against another white male Democrat, Patrick Murphy, in Florida’s 18th District and lost by 2000 votes. Obviously, Florida’s vast population and myriad minority groups did NOT play the only part in West’s victory in 2010, or his loss in 2012. If skin color was ever the
    • primary issue, then he should have won easily in 2012, just ashe did in 2010 according to those who make the “changingdemographics” race based argument. West’s opponents,Klein in 2010 and Murphy in 2012, had very similar and verystandard Democratic Party policies, and neither man wasoverly interesting or influential. West did not suddenly haveto face down a Dem. powerhouse in 2012; just anotherboring-as-crackers lefty.West ran two campaigns against almost identical opponentsunder almost identical social conditions, somehow winningone, and losing the other. So, what happened? What wasdifferent in 2012? The fact is, the only thing different in2012 was that this time around liberty based voters knewWest was not a true conservative. West was a fraud, and astatist, and the Liberty Movement cast him out by decliningto vote for him.Almost immediately after West’s victory in 2010, his limitedgovernment constitutionalist persona began to change. Hevoted to strengthen pork programs which continue to pumpfiat federal monies into local governments, generatingmassive national debt and making state officials beholden tofederal control. He voted yes to line-item veto authority forthe President, bypassing the constitutionally delineated powers of Congress. He supported CISPA(Cyber Intelligence Sharing And Protection Act) which would have given government incredible legalpower to violate the privacy rights of ordinary Americans. And last, but certainly worst, West not onlyvoted for the NDAA despite its unconstitutional indefinite detainment provisions, he also worked tostrike down initiatives to remove language in the NDAA that made it applicable to U.S. citizens. To icethe cake, he openly admitted to serving on the Armed Forces Committee which reviewed the bill beforeit was even released, and later attempted to lie about what it actually did.Why would a supposed constitutionalist and conservative champion applaud the legislated renditionand indefinite imprisonment of American citizens without trial and without due process all on the mereaccusation of “terrorism” by the President, and then pretend as if that power was not granted by thebill? Because, he is a fake conservative and an establishment thug.In my home state of Montana, Republican Denny Rehberg ran a highly anticipated race for Senateagainst incumbent Democrat John Tester. Rehberg’s platform was just like Allan West’s; pro-Tea Party,limited government, thumbs up to the Constitution, and wrap up in the flag for good measure.Rehberg had won many of his U.S. Representative campaigns by a vast margin leading up to hisdecision to run for Senate (around 60% to his opponent’s 30%). I can say that in a state like Montana,the idea of “changing demographics” affecting the election is laughable. Montana is freaken’ white!W-H-I-T-E! Rehberg, a Republican “dreamboat candidate” complete with carefully groomed cowboymustache was thought to be a sure win in this state. By my personal observations seeing him atfunctions including a local Lincoln/Reagan dinner, I would say HE thought he was a sure win, to thepoint of ego-mania.So in a predominantly white and predominantly conservative state, how did Rehberg lose? Becauseelections have little to do with “demographics” or party, and everything to do with the integrity of theperson running, especially where the Liberty Movement is concerned.
    • Rehberg’s professed fuzzy feelings for freedom and limited government were undeniably false. Hisconsistent support for big government programs aside, he voted for and viciously defended the NDAA.When approached by Stewart Rhodes of Oath Keepers at a Republican function about his vote forrendition and permanent detention without trial for American citizens, he side-stepped the questioncompletely, and accused Rhodes (a veteran Army Paratrooper) of “not supporting the troops”.Rehberg’s attitude did not go unnoticed by the Liberty Movement population in Montana, and likeConrad Burns, the Republican incumbent who had been unseated in 2006, he lost by a substantialmargin of voters who instead backed a Libertarian third party candidate.The argument for “changing demographics” was certainly not applicable in either of these twoincidences, along with numerous other state and local elections I do not have the space to mention. Italso does not take into account the millions of Americans who refrain from voting because they feelutterly unrepresented in the election process. This lie is being pushed in order to hide the real changein America: a movement towards legitimacy and humility in government, rather than hubris andtyranny.Lie #2: The GOP Does Not Appeal To Young Voters, Who Are Predominantly Liberal (Socialist)I would still be considered a young voter, and so would many of my closest friends. They and I had allbut abandoned politics in disgust years ago when we discovered Ron Paul, one of the onlyrepresentatives in Washington D.C. that we felt actually embodied the traditional constitutionalmethodology (original conservatism). Not only had he received the highest amount of donations fromthe men and women of the U.S. military, he was also packing sold out speaking events on collegecampuses across the country while Obama and Romney were crawling on hands and knees throwingfree tickets at elementary school children just to get a minor crowd. The point is, Ron Paul, a trueconservative, was energizing the youth vote and even bringing some Democrats over from the socialistdark side.The idea that a young voter is predestined to embrace collectivist nanny government and sell their soulto the Democratic Party is a lie of epic proportions. The GOP could have had them on board anytimethey wanted; all they had to do was nominate Ron Paul as their presidential candidate. Instead, theywent with yet another Neo-Con ghoul whose rhetoric and record was nearly identical to Obama’s. TheGOP could have won, if they had actually wanted to win. But then, it would have meant disrupting thefalse left right paradigm, and surely, the establishment can’t have that…Lie #3: The GOP Needs To Evolve With Our “Progressive” Times Instead Of Clinging ToTraditional Conservative PrinciplesUltimately, this lie is designed to infer that the Republican Party needs to take on a more collectivistattitude in order to appeal to the rising tide of a younger generation and our nation’s so-called“changing demographics”. Hilariously, the lie is suggesting that the GOP do what they have in factalready done: go full socialist.The Republican Party has not “clung” to traditional conservative principles for a very long time. Overthe course of the past several decades it has become a haven for the minions of Leo Strauss, a statistand Platonian fascist whose job was to subvert the core of conservatism and warp it into a festeringcesspool of elitism – much like the Democratic Party. The GOP has failed because this elitism is nowundeniably present, and the party has lost its ability to hide what it has become.When a sad victim of academia tries to argue that the cause of our economic crisis is the “evil of thefree market”, I always point out that he/she has actually never lived in a world where true free marketsexist. They have, for their entire lives, lived under a socialized and centralized economic system, andso, blaming “free markets” for their financial woes is like blaming Tasmanian Tigers for the death of
    • their Chihuahua. The same goes for conservatism. When people wail against the crimes of George W.Bush and the possible return of a “conservative” presidency, I always point out that Bush was not aconservative, and that there hasn’t been a legitimately conservative GOP since before they were born.The Republican Party has already delved into the realm of centralized despotism as much as theDemocratic Party has. Its only salvation now is to reverse course back towards limited government andfreedom, not continue into federalized oblivion.Lie #4: The Liberty Movement Had No Influence On The Elections WhatsoeverAs I have shown, proponents of constitutional values have indeed swayed particular elections, at leastat the state and local level. Therefore, the assertion is meant to inject disinformation in pursuit of aparticular end. Strangely, I heard this argument all throughout the primaries and up until the week afterObama declared victory; the argument that our movement does not matter and will never gain tangiblemomentum. And yet, all through the primaries up until the day before elections the Neo-Cons wereeither courting us with gifts, goodies, and offers of a “place at the table”, or attacking us viciously as“traitors to our own ideals” whose non-participation was akin to a “vote for the Antichrist (Obama)”.Now, my question is; if the Liberty Movement doesn’t matter, then why were GOP cronies so desperateto convince us to vote party line?Why did they feel the need to regurgitate the “lesser of to evils” argument over and over again? Whydid it matter to them if we voted for Romney, or voted third party, or didn’t vote at all? If our influenceis so miniscule, then why invite Liberty Movement representatives like Rand Paul or Sherriff Mac tocheerlead for the “guy who will drive the bus off the cliff slower”? Why try in a grade school mannerto shame us into setting aside our principles? Why not simply ignore us and let us wallow in our own“obscurity”.I see two possibilities…First, that the Liberty Movement has grown strong enough to encompass a sizable mass of votingpower, at least large enough to ensure that many GOP candidates will win or lose by a particularmargin. That margin may be thin and we may not yet be in a position to launch our own party, butwithout us, they know they are likely to fall short, and this problem is only going to grow as timepasses. They court us, or attack us, because they realize they cannot win despite us.Second, if you subscribe to the well documented idea that elections, at least at the federal level, areentirely staged (which I do), then you might ask yourself again why the GOP elite were grasping for theLiberty Movement to relinquish for the sake of defeating Obama. If Obama and Romney areessentially the same monkey, the same exact errand boy for the same exact globalist puppeteers, thenwhat the hell do they need our vote for? Romney wins, and they get what they want. Obama wins andthey get what they want. Unless…what they really wanted was our participation in the farce.That’s right, perhaps the greater purpose of the endless lesser-of-two-evils charade was to see if theestablishment could convince us to compromise our conscience and be drawn back into the game.Maybe, just maybe, it was all a test, of you, of us, to discern how much of the Liberty Movement couldbe conned or swayed with moral relativism. Perhaps the death rattle of the Republican industrialcomplex was due to the one thing that the media will never spotlight in a 60 minute primetime special;the fact that the majority of the burgeoning Liberty Movement refused to sell out, proving that the GOPis no longer effective at keeping us reigned in or co-opted. The GOP is dying and we are thriving.Whether or not the two are related, I leave for you to decide… http://www.infowars.com/
