Would the Last True Conservative to leave the Republican Party Clubhouse please grab President Reagan’s portrait?
What is this? What am I harping on? First off, if you have read any of what I have published here before, and it has been awhile, you may know I am no Conservative and no Republican. But I know what the first person who I ever voted for President, Ronald Reagan, believed in. Among many other things he believed in all that is just and good for America, Americans and thus the World within the confines of our Constitution.
So, maybe I am a practical, middle of the road, Common Sense Constitutionalist? But that’s if you really need a label.
Resisting getting into all of the other specifics,it does seem that the very ideals that Reagan believed in vis a vis People of other Nations and their RIGHT to self determination without oppression, has been cast aside by many in the Party over a singular issue- support of Ukraine since last February.
They seem to forget or perhaps never knew, about how much money, manpower and weaponry Reagan committed to fighting the tyranny of the Soviet Union- Russia. And, he did it all without the constant and palpable dread of nuclear war.
And, do not forget, those Peoples and Nations he risked war with the USSR for; Afghanistan and Nicaraugua, were nowhere near as strategically or economically important as Ukraine is today.
In brief, what I see now is a chasm of fear breaking along the lines of who I call the Sean Hannity Conservatives and the Tucker Carlson Conservatives.
The Hannity group believed in placing sanctions in the construction of the Russian Nordstream 2 pipeline back in 2019. They believed in supplying Ukraine with lethal weaponry all the way back to the Obama Presidency. In fact, we must remember the first Impeachment of President Trump was centered around a shipment of lethal aid to Ukraine; Hannity Conservatives and Tucker Conservatives both defended Trump stating that the defense of Ukraine was not interrupted by “the phone call” and that the flow of weaponry then was never in any danger of being stopped.
But now we here from Tucker and his followers that we should not be helping Ukraine, to do so is courting National suicide both economic and perhaps nuclear! That perhaps we should have never armed Ukraine at all! Just like Obama DID NOT want to!
The Tuckerites now claim that somehow the US is the source of evil for Europe and the World because we dare to induce, fuel and inspire freedom. That “if we would just leave Putin alone, everything would stabilize; he only wants to protect Russian speakers in Ukraine; why can’t we allow Zelenskky to talk Peace?” and so much more drivel that is of no merit and highly based in fanciful speculation. One that purports Putin as an honest and reasonable broker. One that envisions a madman, President Biden lurched over a war map directing the forces of NATO to “get Putin!”
Do any of us really believe that Biden, or anyone in his Administration is capable of such leadership? It is most likely only by the leadership and effort of practiced logisticians in the Pentagon and NATO that what the US and its Allies have shipped to Ukraine has been received by Ukraine.
The fact that Ukraine is succeeding is not only good for itself, Europe and the World, its “gravy” for a Biden Administration desperate for some kind of success to point at.
But the Tuckerites will just continually verge on Putinism themselves over their hate of Biden. Support in a war should never be so politically partisan that one loses what should be their guiding, ideological principles.
With what Tucker and his followers are stating, how can they claim ANY lineage from President Reagan and his firm belief in the freedom of anyone, anywhere willing to fight for it?
And worse of all, no matter what you believe politically, that group of Republicans are spreading doubt and fear in the American and Western way of life, society and Governance.Causing us to question, without need, our centuries long National Commitment to Liberty and Free People’s = Reaganism.
Watch any Russian Media (available on YT’s ‘Russian Media Monitor’ channel) and indeed you will hear the same things said there, by Russian propagandists, all Putin insiders, that Tucker says! You can even see them replaying segments of Tucker’s show on Russian TV, calling him the “only honest American newsman”!
So, you True Conservatives out there, those who have put partisanship aside for this one thing for Ukraine, Europe and the World’s behalf– remember that you and those like me who believe in the Constitution and Liberty First, are the inheritors of Reagan’s legacy, not the Partisan hacks like Tucker. Those who our Founding Fathers warned us would undo our Republic if we did not guard against them.
