Don’t tread on me! … except in Arkansas

by Conduit For Action: Nationally, Republican voters are rebelling against big government Republicans (often referred to as “establishment Republicans”). The backlash is apparent: (1) political outsiders and candidates who fight the establishment currently lead the polls for Republican nominee for president, (2) Speaker of the House John Boehner, who epitomizes the establishment Republican side, is resigning; and (3) a recent poll shows that Republicans voters feel betrayed by politicians in their Party.
According to a Fox News poll: “62 percent of Republican primary voters feel “betrayed” by politicians in their party, and another 66 percent say the recent Republican majorities in Washington have failed to do all they could to block or reverse President Obama’s agenda.” [i]Critics of “Establishment Republicans” describe them as supporting big government programs and having little stomach for fighting liberal policies of President Obama and the Democrats. They give up without a fight for conservative principles. Establishment Republicans hide behind the fatalistic words, “ I have to be pragmatic.

Republicans who value conservative principles and are willing to stand up for those principles are often labeled as “Tea Party Republicans” even if they don’t belong to a Tea Party group. They, like Tea Party groups, are staunch supporters of the constitution and of conservative principles, and they are willing to fight for both.
