Political Hucksters Bringing Us
Hoax and Chains

June 16, 2013 --

LPR would not exclude the possibility that the 26% who think the IRS did nothing wrong in Target-gate crosses party lines.

Indeed, LPR would not be surprised to learn that the GOP's self-anointed troika of Karl Rove, Reince Priebus and House Speaker John A. Boehner are included among the 26%.

This GOP troika views constitutional conservatives with leftist-like disdain. If 2016 is too soon to have a merger of the anti-conservative forces behind a Democrat-Republican label,supporting Chris Christie as presidential nominee of the merged party -- LPR expects such merger will be acomplished by 2020.

The anti-conservatives are, of course, the nation's political force that holds. rather strongly, to the view that politics is the stuff of insiders. There is no room in insider politics for interlopers who believe in our founding legacy of government of, by and for the people. These interlopers are to be discarded from the political process.

Thus far, political consultants for the Republican insiders have instructed their patrons how to distance themselves from conservative principles, just like leftists. These "consultants" are apparently convinced that presidents will be elected by leftist contituencies.

These "consultants" must have determined that there is no room, politically, economically or socially for ordinary middle class people in the transformed America. There is room only for their class at the levers of government: The Elite Class -- our New Aristocrats, who would transform America from land of liberty to land of accepted tyranny.

Target-gate offers Tossed-Aside America a taste of its future in an America where our Founding Legacy is deemed dead and buried. It is no surprise to LPR that Speaker Boehner's advice, in dealing with Target-gate, as reported in The New York Times, May 17, is to be cautious.

How much more difficult to suppress conservatives by acting bravely in support of liberty. Tyranny, thy handmaiden is timidity.
