Conservatives like these are one of the reasons I started Recreant. They symbolize everything that is wrong with the Republican party. Pure opportunists, no understanding of even the most basic tenets of conservative thought, and stupid enough to vote for an economy killing bill pushed by leftist ideologues in exchange for…..what? That “what” is the giant, unanswered question in this entire equation. However, regardless of what these 8 got for themselves by siding with the Democrats to further decimate our economy, our primary goal as conservatives should be to ensure that they are removed from office at the next available opportunity. The first step necessary to shed our moral cowardice is to have the strength to act on our convictions – and to remove from power those who violate our trust.
