Following eight years of being absolutely subservient to the Bush/Cheney administration , a Republican administration by the way that at least in part cost the party its reputation as well as the Senate, the House, a number of Governorships and state legislative majorities, not to mention registered Republicans; they are finally going to stand up. They will tell them that dammit “I am a person too” and in true Howard Beale fashion ” Were as mad as Hell and Were not going to take it any more”. That is after the two Presidents Bush and Cheney leave office.

And what for? The atrocious lack of response to Katrina in New Orleans? No. The foolish and unnecessary invasion of Iraq? No. The compromising of some of the civil liberties and virtues that are the foundation of this country? No wrong again? Its the bailout.

It was revealed last week in the Washington Times, that some officials at the Republican National Committee, according to the story will attempt to pass a resolution accusing the Bush/Cheney administration and Leading Republicans in Congress of “socialism” at their January party meeting.

Republican Party officials say they will try next month to pass a resolution accusing President Bush and congressional Republican leaders of embracing “socialism,” underscoring deep dissension within the party at the end of Mr. Bush’s administration.

Those pushing the resolution, which will come before the Republican National Committee at its January meeting, say elected leaders need to be reminded of core principles. They said the RNC must take the dramatic step of wading into policy debates, which traditionally have been left to lawmakers.

“We can’t be a party of small government, free markets and low taxes while supporting bailouts and nationalizing industries, which lead to big government, socialism and high taxes at the expense of individual liberty and freedoms,” said Solomon Yue, an Oregon member and co-sponsor of a resolution that criticizes the U.S. government bailouts of the financial and auto industries. Republican National Committee Vice Chairman James Bopp Jr. wrote the resolution and asked the rest of the 168 voting members to sign it.

To many conservatives, I think the size of government is measured and measured solely on two things. The first is taxes and the second is regulations on business. That is it. Never mind launching so-called “Pre-emptive wars” also known as invasions and occupations without end. Never mind willing to compromise the protections that the constitution and International law which protect the common people from the excesses of the mighty power of governments. Never mind attempting to re-write the constitution so only certain kinds of people can get married, or making it a crime for a woman to decide whether or not she wants to be a mother. No that’s fine, but when money comes into it that is when there is big government.

I agree that this bailout thing has been handled horribly, especially as it relates to the investment banks, however it is hardly the most egregious thing Bush and Cheney have ever done.
