1. “Imagine a Republican Party without the ... principled ideas coming from Senators Rand Paul, Marco

Rubio, Ted Cruz, Pat Toomey and Mike Lee ..."

It would be nice to have a Senate that did not have Paul, Rubio, Cruz, Toomey and Lee, but not in the way that Freedom Works wishes.

“The Empire is striking back. A clear pattern has emerged, beginning with the GOP leadership’s efforts to silence delegates on the floor of the RNC, continuing with House Leadership's purge of fiscally conservative congressmen from their committee positions for voting out of line with the GOP establishment. Now, an Orwellian-named ‘Conservative Victory Project’ is created with the sole operating mission of blocking the efforts of fiscally conservative activists across the country.”

"The Empire strikes back. - A Star Wars analogy. How quaint!

“All events point to a fundamental clash between the old guard Republican establishment, dictating outdated ideas from the top-down, versus a tech-savvy younger generation of activists driving their agenda from the bottom-up. These blatant acts of hostility are typical behavior of an entrenched political establishment, circling the wagons around incumbents, regardless of job performance in office.”

A 'fundamental clash' between the "old guard Republican establishment" and "a tech-savvy younger generation of activists". We can only hope that the 'clash' is brutal and debilitating to their party.

Thanks for posting this WillyT.
