A Strategy for Slaying the GOP Establishment


by J. Andrew Peak

Last Saturday, in a piece posted on Breitbart, Sarah Palin deftly used her pen in defense of the recent efforts by GOP Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee to defund Obamacare.

In doing so, she took to task the GOP establishment. Her piece was a wide-ranging synopsis and critique of the current environment surrounding Republican Party politics. With aplomb, she touched on many problems and pointed out the cowardice, backstabbing and ineffectiveness of the establishment.

As usual, Mrs. Palin was on point in her analysis.

A few quotes though stood out in particular. Embedded deep within those quotes is an organizational strategy conservatives should ponder. In fact, embedded in Sarah’s words is a strategy for destroying the republican establishment.

In one quote Mrs. Palin said:

“But the permanent political class is handwringing and howling that if there’s a government shutdown the media will blame Republicans for it.

Sarah Palin’s exactly right. The media will blame republicans. And the GOP establishment types, firmly entrenched in D.C., are scared to death of precisely that. Fear paralyzes them and they fail to act. It is why most become so useless.

“If we fight on Obamacare or the debt ceiling and things blow up and the government shuts down – the media will blame us. In turn, the precious so called independents might blame us. This could happen! And if this happens, it may alienate independents and they may not vote republican.”

So what can be done to change it?
