There is a civil war raging within the GOP over the direction in which the Republican Party should go.
On one side we have those fighting for more liberty and less big government while those on the other side are committed to maintaining the status quo.
Perhaps the “king” of the “old guard” Republican establishment is Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). He supported the budget “compromise” which slams more new taxes on hard-working Americans and agreed with Obama that we should bomb Syria without Congressional approval.
I’m sure you also remember the former presidential candidate’s elementary name-calling of Rand Paul, Justin Amash, and Ted Cruz when they filibustered over the president’s dangerous drone policy early last year. McCain called them “wacko birds,” which only proved to solidify McCain’s position on the “anti-liberty” side of the aisle.
The Republican Party is seeing a huge shift towards being more libertarian-leaning. If anything demonstrates this, it is McCain’s own party within his own state publicly reprimanding him for “not representing” the values of limited government and fiscal responsibility and instead having a “long and terrible record” for voting with “liberal Democrats.”
A few weeks ago, Senator John McCain was censured by the Maricopa County GOP, the largest Republican group in the state, for or “long and terrible record of drafting, co-sponsoring and voting for legislation best associated with liberal Democrats.” Today, McCain faced a continuation of the censure for his liberal voting record with a censure from the Arizona Republican Party.
Keep in mind this year is an election year. Democrats are not the only ones who should be worried about being replaced because when it comes to combating tyranny, it does not matter whether a (D) or and (R) comes behind someone’s name.
