The stranglehold liberals have on American politics looks irrevocable. The regime relentlessly lies to us, destroys our financial stability, sovereignty at home and abroad and strips our liberties. GOP elected officials, previously tagging themselves “Conservative,” unfathomably spout Democrat-Lite mantras guaranteed to hasten the nation’s downfall, despite their constituency’s outrage.
The President and his cadre of leftists, encouraged by the media, force one-world government down our throats, day after day. In just 4 1/2 years, this assault on our nation appears fatal. But is it, really?
There are attempts to hide it, but cracks are widening in the Democrat hierarchy. Despite mainstream media’s diligent efforts, Democrat woven designs are coming unraveled. Stubbornly, Benghazi won’t go away. It’s becoming a widening stain. No matter how full Our Dear Leader packs his mandatory, worshipful audiences, or how many trips he makes abroad to deride America, his halo is slipping. Strident supporters (e.g. Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Maher) are, by their own admission, “beginning to get nervous.” Despite the administration’s full court press, insisting that there is nothing to see here, more is being seen and acted on daily.
Two political shifts in The Force seem to be GOP candidate Gabriel Gomez of Massachusetts and Dana Spain of Philadelphia. If the name Gabriel Gomez is unknown to you, it isn’t to Massachusetts residents. Mr. Gomez won the GOP primary for the special election Senate seat previously held by John Kerry.
Why an upset? Because Mr. Gomez, according to The Hill, is Hispanic and a “former Navy SEAL (and an) investment firm executive.” Mr. Gomez is, in short, a successful, experienced executive that has credentials. Massachusetts has become a state of liberals who, under the harshest conditions, have been mugged. Their recent collision with terrorism has opened their eyes. They seem primed for a political change. And Massachusetts likes what it sees in Mr. Gomez.
Gomez has unassailable, Washington-outsider credentials. Mr. Gomez’s Democrat opponent in the primary is eighteen-term Rep. Edward Markey. You read that correctly. 36 years in Congress. And Markey, in typical Democrat style, is already running attack ads picturing Mr. Gomez and Osama Bin Laden on split screen. If Mr. Gomez can manage to avoid channeling Scott Brown and ignore milquetoast advice from establishment Republican advisors, he has a good chance of winning the Senate seat.
Despite decades in Congress, Markey currently leads Mr. Gomez by just 4 points.
Philadelphia is a liberal monopoly. In the upcoming mayoral election, however, there may be a new sheriff in town. Ms. Dana Spain, a registered Democrat, would run as a Republican. A native of Philadelphia and a successful businesswoman, Ms. Spain is devoted to rebuilding Philadelphia’s crumbling brand.
Philadelphia is the nation’s 5th largest city. Ms. Spain, spanking new to the political scene, asserts “I am an outsider. The only thing that I have in mind here is to fix the city that I love.” Why run as a Republican? Because her intent is to repair what’s wrong, not to control how people live. Significantly, a fractured GOP is coalescing behind her.
These are just two, small forays into territory considered unalterably Democrat. Neither of these candidates is Conservative1, to be sure but, neither one is Barney Frank, either.
Change comes slowly. We are talking about Massachusetts and Philadelphia two of the Bluest political landscapes in America. If this is any indication, Americans can reclaim their political reins and defy political carnage.
- ABC News reports: “[Gomez] has run on a socially moderate, but fiscally conservative platform, supporting gay marriage, but saying it should be left up to the states. He does oppose abortion personally, citing his Catholicism, but hasn’t called for Rove v. Wade to be overturned. Gomez supported Barack Obama in 2008 and when John Kerry was appointed Secretary of State, opening up this seat to a special election, he wrote a letter in January to Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick asking for the interim appointment. In the letter he cited his past support of the president saying he would support Obama’s positions on both gun control and immigration. His opponents jumped on it, but it didn’t seem to hurt him in the primary.” [↩]
