Subject: OPEN LETTER TO THE PATRIOT MOVEMENT / List of Republicans That Don't Deserve Our Votes
OPEN LETTER TO THE PATRIOT MOVEMENT from Robert Shannon is attached below:
Long term progress of the Patriot movement is in serious jeopardy. It stems from a troubling refusal to see the truth explicitly stated by none other than John Taylor on Tuesday August 13th at the Bull & Bear Club in downtown Richmond. ( John Taylor is president of Tertium Quids, president of the Virginia Institute for Public Policy and is one of the most influential political players in Virginia. http://www.tertiumquids.org/bod.html )
"Adherence to men is often disloyalty to principles. Republicans won't change until one thing clearly happens, they must know we will not vote for them." - John Taylor
The Patriot movement is comprised of two distinct factions that are fracturing. One side continues to cling to the misguided notion that so long as we elect someone with an R next to their name we are winning ? I have cited numerous times in the past the hollow lie that notion contains. Republicans have run Virginia for the last 4 years…….need I say more.The other side ( or faction ) understands very clearly what must be done. John Taylor said the truth, and if we understand and accept that, then a hard line, albeit with short term political losses must be endured in order to further the bigger goal. Here comes the "Bob, this election is too important" or " we gotta win" ( win just what--another 6 billion dollar tax increase ? ) and last but not least my personal favorite "Well Bob, our guy isn't as bad as their guy" Winning isn't the goal. Resolving the problems is the goal---we mustn't lose sight of that.We must reform the republican party, and the soft ball approach many of you advocate, at times for perhaps your own self serving reasons has not worked. Smarten up, toughen up, or step out of the way…please.
