This quote is from Rep. Tim Huelskamp of Kansas, one of four Republican congressmen stripped of key committee positions, according to the "Inside Story of Boehner's Conservative Purge," reported by WND.
It is suggested that this purge is merely the enactment of party discipline.
However, by punishing these conservatives, GOP Speaker of the House John Boehner may be demonstrating the political equivalent of slitting his own throat. And that of the Republican Party.
A political party increasingly alienated from the rules of freedom, as set forth in the Declaration and U.S. Constitution, either rejects the leadership of hypocritical elites or it dies with them.
It is true: A house divided cannot stand. This is true of political parties and of national communities.
Rome wasn't built in a day, and there is no reason to expect that freedom in the U.S will fall in a day. But Rome did fall, and so the U.S. and freedom in the U.S. equally can fall.
The Democrat Party already wars aggressively against the rules of freedom. Thus its extremism is exposed when measured against the liberating mainstream of America freedom and dignity.
It would be a dying shame to see the GOP go down into that same pit. "We the People" need not follow.
