Conservative activist threatens to steer donors from RNC if GOP raises taxes

Source: The Hill

Brent Bozell, a prominent conservative activist and fundraiser, is threatening to steer donors away from the Republican Party if GOP lawmakers sign a deal to raise taxes.

Bozell sent a letter to Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus on Wednesday pledging to make it his mission to counsel conservative donors to shun the party if its leaders in Congress agree to raise taxes.

Bozell, the chairman of ForAmerica Inc., has been active in conservative political circles for three decades and estimates he has raised hundreds of millions of dollars for “an alphabet soup of conservative causes.”

“Reince, it pains me to say this, but if the Republican Party breaks its word to the American people and goes along with President Obama with tax increases, it will have betrayed conservatives for the final time,” Bozell wrote.

Grover Norquist corporate backers and fundraisers are bringing down the hammer to enforce Norquist's tax pledge. There is a reason why Republicans are so willing to hold America's credit rating and taxes for 98 percent of Americans hostage. Their constituents are not the American people, but the corporate SuperPacs that support them.

43. Nope. A duopoly is inherently unstable. Like a stool with two legs.

A duopoly is an expression of limited thinking.

A duopoly tends to extreme polarization, like the North / South polarization of the Civil War, and the Bush / Rove 51-49 % strategy.

All of the world's most stable democracies have multi-party systems, except one: the USA. Few if any of them have fought a civil war. The United Kingdom (England) fought its last civil war ending in 1651.

Reject the tyranny of the duopoly.

49. Binary thinking appeals to people who think they've got it nailed down.

The universe is not very binary at all. Magnets (compasses) swing violent from one pole to another when you change conditions (change shielding metal or configurations of nearby magnets).

Dualistic thinking is a trap. Think of the zen aphorism: "No dualities!" It is captured in the koan "Does a dog have buddha nature?"

The political universe is not a pair of poles on a single dimension. Nor is it even shades of gray or shades of blue / red / purple on a single dimension. There are many dimensions; two big ones are fiscal policy and social policy. That doesn't even get into corporate governance and states rights and ....

can legitimately blame the republicans for the hike and the dems can then introduce tax cuts for those who earn under say 250000 and if the republicans try to stonewall that then the dems can paint the republicans as really being pro higher taxes except when its someone whos of the 1%.

Last edited Sun Dec 2, 2012, 10:33 PM - Edit history (1)

Some would say that those conservatives legislators betrayed their swearing in oath by signing Norquist's pledge. You can't served two masters. It's either Norquist or the welfare of the country, which includes raising taxes when necessary for the common weal, i.e., in time of war. Repugs and Bush didn't raise taxes during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and thus contributed trillions to the deficit, which they are now using talking points ad nauseam to convince low info people that the big fat deficit is the President's fault

What WILL happen is that the banksters and the corporate criminals will figure out new, innovative and (they hope) secret ways to exercise control over who get the Repug nomination, and how. If Mittens could have locked in the nomination earlier, he might have won the general election. That is what the corpoids will be looking to do next time.

67. If he starts his own party. . .

We'd have to call it the "Bozo Party", wouldn't we???

Or, maybe he could just get the big donors to send all that cash to NewsBusters!!

What a douchebag!!

69. Seems to me the GOP has two choices.

1. Tell Grover and his cronies to go pound sand, and lose political ground for at least eight years.
2. Go along with Grover and his cronies, and lose political ground until the GOP becomes nothing more a historical curiosity.

A vote from a multibillionaire is worth just as much as one from someone who lives from paycheck to paycheck. Once you realize this, you realize that politics is a populist business.

76. Lets see, we just had an election and Obama won saying he was going to raise taxes.

Let them steer their support somewhere else, GOP does not have the Latino, oriental or the black vote, lost lots of women voters and if the angry because the Democrat candidate is black old white men come back in the Democrat vote, guess who will win. If the poor people voting for the repub candidate because they are against abortion and finally realize the abortion issue is not going to change then the Democrats will be in total control. The likes of Rick OOPS Perry will be back in the Democrat party also..
