So, Renee Ellmers

As you may know, I'm pro-choice, much like Rep. Renee Ellmers.

Now, superficially, it may seem like I should like her Pro-Choice position, which is so much like my own Pro-Choice position. If we're looking only at the position.

Which I'm not. Because whether or not Renee Ellmers agrees with my pro-abortion politics, which she plainly does, is besides the point.

The point that is foremost is this: GOP politicians must stop fucking lying about everything.

Here's a not terribly-well-kept secret: Most of the GOP establishment -- the elected officials, the shadow government of consultants and "think tank" people and so on -- has spent the great majority of its adult life in Progressive Dominated Social Circles, and have largely adopted their mores on a great many issues.

You know all those Corporate Donors who are so keen to make Mexico the 51st state?
Yeah they donate to the GOP as a form of Racket Protection but they've been schooled in progressive-dominated institutions and are for all intents and purposes progressives themselves (except on the issues of corporate taxation).

I'm not as bothered by this state of affairs as some conservatives might be; after all, I'm socially moderate (or even liberal-ish) myself.

But where I can agree with other conservatives is on this issue: The GOP must stop lying about every fucking thing.

The GOP treats its base like children who must be lied to with silly fictions to keep them in line, to keep them from playing out in traffic or making their face Stay In That Position Forever. Or, not quite as condescendingly, they treat GOP voters like marks in a con game.

Hey, at least there they're treating us as adults. Victims, yes, but adult victims.

Renee Ellmers is pro-choice. There is no dishonor in this (at least I don't think so, but consider the source).

But she is also pro-lying, and I've just about had my fill of it.

Sure, on this issue, I might actually support a little Tactical Lying on the part of the Establishment to keep abortion Safe, Legal, and Rare (which is their actual goal here), but I do not support the broader practice of lying about every fucking thing, such as the size of government, ObamaCare, Amnesty, and so forth.

The GOP, in its current incarnation, exists to legitimize, formalize, and strengthen the political gains made by the left-wing. The latter m'f'ers push American politics hard to the left through a series of gambits of dubious legality, and then the GOP comes in to say We retroactively bless these things as legal.

Enough. Enough.

If you're pro-choice, as I am, then fucking say so, and lobby for your position honestly.

But stop lying to every fucking one, treating GOP voters as if they are actually legally incompetent morons who must be tricked into doing the right thing.

This is precisely the same conception of the GOP base that the Progressives' have; I don't know if I should say the fact that the GOP shares this sentiment is scandalous or simply inevitable.

Renee Ellmers must be nominated as the first name on The Shit List. She must be voted out of office in 2016, even if this means installing (temporarily) Clay Aiken into that post.

It is good to hang and admiral from time to time, pour encourager les autres.

We need to take 10 of these m'f'ers out in 2016 to let them know we have our limits, and those limits were crossed in 2002.

When a Roman legion was guilty of cowardice or mutiny, they were sentenced to the punishment of Decimation, the execution of every tenth man, to encourage the remaining 9/10ths to take their obligations to the Roman state more seriously.

It is time to begin the practice of Tactical Decimation -- just firing people from their sinecures, not executing them, of course -- to let the GOP know we have no further need of soldiers who refuse to fight.
