Why should this barrio born and raised conservative Gabacho relocate to a foreign land? Why vacate the formerly Golden State for some Kentucky hollow, with cars mounted on milk crates and moonshine in jugs, when my Latino friends have perfected the technology of hydraulics and a bottle of "Ghetto Bird", with paper bag, is only a corner liquor store away in mi barrio ( please pardon my Steve Lopez generalization moment)?
Why should I part ways from a community that promotes family, faith and hard work, that is being corrupted by easy access to the "drugs of government dependency", in the form of Welfare, Food Stamps, WIC vouchers and contraception on demand?
Granted, Lopez has some valid points about the perception of Republicans, but why should I take advise from a columnist for a fishwrap that does not have one local conservative commentator of note on its payroll? It only seems like yesterday that the Times was investing column inches in attempting to derail a citizen revolt against another failed collectivist Gray Davis, by attacking the former "Kennedy Republican Governor" during its "LA Antonio Times Era" of pro Mayor Villar reporting (** BTW, did the Times ever dedicate any resources to investigate the rumored "fifth child" of Antonio?). Pity the fish who is wrapped in the Editorial Page, only to be reincarnated someday as a collectivist-leaning flounder, that goes litigious on BIG SHARK for its predatory practices, due to its prior life exposure.
For sure, if the Republican Party in the now "Greece on the Pacific" is to survive longer than the print edition of the Old Gray Collectivist Hag on Spring Street (not hard with the right strategy), an extreme makeover is a MUST! Disavowing the defeatist advise from the RINOs and moderates, the true small government believers must assume the persona of a loyal political opposition insurgency. Instead of a political retreat, an audacious plan of infiltration of liberal strongholds with a color blind message that promotes the values of limited government, mixed with blunt examples of waste and corruption that is the norm of the Labor Left one party rule, is paramount for a resurgent GOP.
But most important in reviving the GOP brand in "Greece on the Pacific" is the combination of grass roots outreach on the local level, mixed with embracing the power of new media (blogs, Facebook, Twitter, You Tube). Lets not kid ourselves with thoughts that the likes of Steve Lopez and his Fellow Travelers at the Old Gray Collectivist Hag on Spring Street, are going to exercise a random act of journalism in reporting objectively on GOP outreach efforts. To the contrary, agenda journalism must be confronted and exposed for its bias corruption period ..... and if Mr. Lopez takes issue with that comment, then he can go play soccer among the increasing empty corridors of the former fishwrap of record, as we move forward with our bloggin political insurgency.
