So, why do we need Republicans?

Republicans now are searching for a new path for their party. They’re realizing they can’t win with their current policies. They’re trying to be a new, “hip,” “with it,” pro-middle class party. So here’s where they’re doing, as reported by Laurence Vance:

“This past Friday, an “Internet Sales Tax” amendment (no. 656) to S.Con.Res. 8, sponsored by Wyoming Republican Mike Enzi, passed the Senate with the support of twenty-six Republicans, many of them known as conservatives, with most of them talking about how conservative they are when facing a Democrat in an election.

“Here are the senators: Alexander (R-TN), Blunt (R-MO), Boozman (R-AR), Burr (R-NC), Chambliss (R-GA), Coburn (R-OK), Cochran (R-MS), Collins (R-ME), Corker (R-TN), Crapo (R-ID), Enzi (R-WY), Fischer (R-NE), Graham (R-SC), Hoeven (R-ND), Isakson (R-GA), Johanns (R-NE), Johnson (R-WI), Kirk (R-IL), McCain (R-AZ), Moran (R-KS), Portman (R-OH), Risch (R-ID), Sessions (R-AL), Shelby (R-AL), Thune (R-SD), Wicker (R-MS).”

So, just like the Democrats, the Republican Party favors taxing the Internet, which the middle-class — including all those immigrants the GOP now is trying to attract — uses for commerce, communication and fun.

Note the presence there of Sen. John McCain, the GOP’s 2008 presidential nominee. The party’s problems didn’t begin with Mitt Romney, the 2012 nominee — and himself a notorious tax raiser with his RomneyCare socialized medicine scheme in Massachusetts when he was governor there.

It’s becoming harder to find a reason why the Republican Party should continue operating.

    If you eliminate the Republicans, then who will be the new common enemy?
