View From Fonzi’s Foxhole – Unite or Die

Watching the republican debate last night on CNBC confirms to me that Republicans, more than ever, need to unite and cease the ideological intra-party warfare. We are conservatives all in one form or another as compared to the Democrats, who are extreme by any definition and captured as a party by the most ideologically rigid and mean-spirited elements of the “American Left.” These people do not love America or Americans. They are “tyrants-in-training” and will adopt the harshest possible measures to destroy political opposition to their agenda, restrained only by what remains of rule of law in an increasingly lawless administration. While that analysis may seem harsh, one only needs to read their literature and their commentary, not to mention listen to their words when they think nobody is listening. They’re dangerous to the Republic and to any freedom-loving individual who would dare defy their plans to “fundamentally change America.”

These extremists are relentless, focused and well-organized. As we saw in Wednesday’s Republican debate, their media allies are fully mobilized to support them by conducting a campaign to undermine, discredit or personally destroy any and all Republican candidates, doing whatever it takes. Our continued infighting will only serve to aid their campaign and it’s time we put our disputes aside and recognize that a “House divided against itself cannot stand.” America is in as great a peril from the subversion within as it ever was from any external threat. If we fail to unite, then the warning given by the Founders to “Unite or Die” will become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
