Three Blind Mice: Snowe, Collins, and Brown

The three blind mice of the Republican Party have once again found common ground with the radicals.  Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins, and Scott Brown have all decided to support the government expanding, constitution trampling, free market killing, financial reform bill H.R. 4173.  For conservatives wondering what is wrong with the party of limited government look no further than these three blind mice.

Olympia Snowe (R-ME) and Susan Collins (R-ME) are the two biggest RINOs in the Republican Party right now.  Out of 598 votes they have only voted with the Republicans 67.9 and 67.4 of the time respectively.  To give you an idea where that stacks up against Democrats with similar voting records, it would be like having Evan Bayh (D-IN) and Ben Nelson (D-NE) in the Republican Party.  Scott Brown (R-MA) has only supported his party 82.3 percent of the time out of 181 votes.  To give you an idea as to where he stands in the party, John McCain actually ranks higher in support for his party’s platform by voting 93 percent of the time with the Republicans.  Scott Brown also received a great deal of support from Tea Party groups during is campaign against Martha Coakley in Massachusetts.

Yesterday the Greater Boston Tea Party said it was “greatly disappointed” in Brown’s announcement. “After weeks of debate and a thorough investigation of the bill and its possible effects on the economy, small businesses, community banks and consumers, we are at a loss as to what redeeming qualities Sen. Brown found in the bill worthy of support,” the group said in a press release. “Scott Brown promised in the fall of 2009 to stand up for free markets and constitutional principles,” the group added.

You can read the entire story here.

It now appears Scott Brown’s promises to stand up for free markets and constitutional principles were nothing more than empty promises.  Now many will profess that we could have done a lot worse with a Coakley win. I’m not so sure.  New Jersey is a deep blue state that elected a very conservative governor that is standing up for fiscal responsibility, free market solutions, and constitutional principles.  Chris Christie says what he means and means what his says and the people are buying into his plan.  He is everything that can be right about the Republican Party while these three blind mice represent everything that is wrong with the party and most of all the conservative movement.

These Senators have been and will be in the future supported by the RNC and that too is part of the problem.  If the RNC truly wants to shift the party to the right there simply can be no room for RINOs like Collins and Snowe.  I say this because a shift to the right means a more conservative ideology and both Snowe and Collins are not conservatives; they are centrists.  Personally I’m not a fan of political parties, but for now we have to work with what we have.  I might not be a fan of our current situation, but it is what it is.  If we hope to advance the conservative movement, Senators like Snowe and Collins must be purged from the party.  We cannot stand for RINOs selling out our conservative principles and compromising with radical leftists anymore.  These radicals view the Constitution as an obstacle that must be overcome and any Republican willing to compromise with this ideology is no friend of mine.

Liberty forever, freedom for all!

    If you eat meat everyday, you are not a vegetarian. If you find yourself praying everyday, you are not an atheist. If you find yourself lying to everyone you know, you are not an honest person. And if you vote for a 2300+ page bill full of unprecedented expansionary federal powers into the private sector, social engineering, economic redistribution,and affirmative action mandates, you are not a Republican.
    By the way, here's a good satirical summary of financial deform:
