@AGUGrizzlies: Jamie Radtke (@JamieRadtke) Shreds #GOPe In Op Ed

Many people know Jamie Radtke from her cameo appearance in Victory Film Groups The Undefeated. But Ms. Radtke is also known for taking a stand and fighting for common sense policies and fiscal sanity in her home state of Virginia.

Jamie Radtke fought a long and hard battle for the Virginia senate seat in last years GOP primary. Ms. Radtke knows first hand about the challenges a citizen candidate will face when she or he takes a stand against the #GOPe machine.

The current GOP establishment now encourages its members to basically surrender to Obama and his socialists Democrats for the sake of appearance and perception. Civility for the sake of civility, compromise for the sake of compromise, and bipartisan for the sake of bipartisan is the recipe of the #GOPe status quo.

In the current fiscal cliff debate, the Boehner run House GOP may have the numbers but they certainly don’t have the principles. This is a running theme in the #GOPe now.

The many activists who worked so hard to give the GOP victory in 2010 are now watching in horror as the party seems to have no spine, no fight, and no brawl for real solutions when dealing with Obama’s failed socialist policies.

Today Jamie Radtke took to the pages of the Richmond Times Dispatch to express her experience, her ideas, and her significant message on dealing with the nature of the beast in DC.

While we are forced to live with the go along to get along politics of the #GOPe, we are very lucky to have fearless leaders like Jamie Radtke willing to take a stand for a return to common sense solutions.

American Grizzlies United believes that the Republican Party is on the brink of a historic reawakening that will lead our country to a better America for all citizens.

Jamie Radtke will be an important voice in the renewal, rebirth, and restoration of American greatness. Please take a moment to read Jamie’s Op-ed: HERE

    That was such an excellent article by Jamie Radtke!  I had just finished reading it somewhere else.

    I cannot agree more that challenging the GOPe is a challenge for truth-tellers! The GOP is pernicious in every way, and dealing with the establishment mindset in voters is part of the uphill climb we have as well.   

    GOP Reform seems impossible but when someone like that speaks up, it is truly uplifting and gives me hope.  Thanks for sharing it here.

    Good for Jamie!  She is our Pocket Palin here in Virginia.  We had a split ticket of TEA Party conservatives running in the primary against George Allen.  Jamie did a great job.  She has a big future.

      "We had a split ticket of TEA Party conservatives running in the primary against [fill in the blank]"  

      Happened too many times across the country.  Missouri comes to mind.  When the Tea Party splits its vote, the spineless win by default.  Gotta find a way to not do that so much in 2014.

        one tea party candidate has to bow out, in order for a conservative to win…..I don’t know why more than one run, unless it’s a plant by the GOPe.

          You answered your own question.

    Where to begin … where to begin …

    Who are you people? What are you people?

    Jamie Radtke was treated like less than dirt by the GOP. The entire Party, and all their mouthpieces, especially RotState, began bashing her from the day she announced. RotState even went so far, as I recall, to say that she showed up for an interview drunk.

    The old "nuts and sluts" meme.

    And Ms. Radtke, and Mr. Schmitz, actually believe that they can reform the GOP? If so, they are going to need tools, such as a "left-handed monkey wrench."

    These types of articles are pathetic, at best. "Please, please, let me in your Party. I will make you better. Can’t you see how valuable I am to you?"

    Mr. Schmitz, get up off your knees and "walk like a man." Tell the GOP to "take their Party and shove it!" They have already told you, in so many words, "Get lost!" How much longer are you going to eat their excrement, smile, and say how yummy it is?

    There are many other "lines" on ballots where you can run your own constitutional conservative candidates. What will it take for you to finally get the message that the GOP wants you to drop dead?

    Keep going the way you are going and all you will accomplish is that the GOP will continue to take your vote for granted, but will relegate your "candidates" to the "nuts and sluts" bin.

    You couldn’t reform the GOP if you had a thousand years. So far, the GOP has succeeded in "reforming" your candidates when they actually got elected. The more you keep playing in their stadium, by their rules, the more ground you will lose.

    You are either a masochist, or just plain dumb. I vote for "both."

    I stand ready, willing, and able to help your candidates … as soon as you show some spine.

    Throw them all out! The status quo must go!

    Believe none of what you hear, and only half of what you see.

      When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to
      dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to
      assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which
      the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the
      opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel
      them to the separation.

      A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this
      government cannot endure, permanently, half slave and half free. I do not expect
      the Union to be dissolved — I do not expect the
      house to fall — but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all
      one thing or all the other. Either the opponents of slavery will arrest the
      further spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the
      belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction; or its advocates will
      push it forward, till it shall become lawful in all the States, old as well as
      new — North as well as South.[1]

      The Republican house is divided against itself and cannot stand.   I believe this party cannot endure permanently, half Constitutional Conservative Individual Freedom Loving Patriot and half RINO Crony Capitalist/Permanent Political Class.  Unlike Lincoln, I expect the House to fall.  It will cease to be divided.  Opponents of RINOism and cronyism and political corruption will arrest the spread of it by means of political civil war.  It will be a very difficult conflict.

      Before we separate and go our very different ways a decent respect to the opinions of Americans requires that we should declare the causes which impel us to the separation.

      Jamie Radtke’s piece is a good start toward that declaration including the causes for it.

         1776er … With all due respect, the handwriting has been on the wall for decades.

        As Mr. Zimmerman (Bob Dylan) so aptly put it, "You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows."

        You do not need an "excuse in writing" to do what is necessary. You just need to do it!

        I’m sure your heart is in the right place, but spending your time writing a "manifesto," when all you need to do is act, is one gigantic waste of time.

        The "war" against the constitutional conservatives, by the GOP, has been ongoing for quite some time. Now is the time to take up our "political arms," not wasting time trying to formally rationalize, to the enemy, why we are doing it.

        "Declarations" without action are meaningless!

        Throw them all out! The status quo must go!

        Believe none of what you hear, and only half of what you see.

    I couldn’t agree more with Jamie’s op ed, nor could I have said it any better.  I left the GOP years ago, because of the very reasons she pointed out for it’s failures.  The GOP has been dying for years since Pres. Reagan left office and it has basically been because of it’s loss of integrity in it’s leadership.  Currently, Jamie is right, it is a party that stands for nothing, but political power and control and even in that case, it is losing badly.  No matter how badly the GOP gets beat at the polls, it’s leadership refuses to change direction and therefore has become a worthless cause in the eyes of decent people who still desire to maintain their integrity and purpose.

    If you cannot change a party mentality nor accept the opposition ideology, there is but one way to go and that is Third Party! If patriots and conservatives want representative govt., they are going to have to put together a party that will represent their ideas and desires.  Hopefully, they will do just that and soon.

    Obama thinks everyone is an idiot.One good thing that will come out of this comedy is that it will be the shot heard around the world for a new party.
