The Deep State is a dangerous political entity that wants to:
- expand the government
- hold onto power
- resist change
The Deep State is typically promoted by those with a liberal agenda.
But there are what are commonly called “Establishment Republicans” who are also advancing the dangerous ideology of the Deep State.
These are leaders, consultants, and elected officials in the Republican party who are doing whatever they can to resist who Trump is, what he stands for, and how he is changing America.
Here are 6 ways that these liberal and moderate Republicans are advancing the Deep State…and what we can do about it.
- Refusing to endorse Trump.
Many Establishment Republicans were horrified that Trump was nominated and elected.
They refuse to endorse Trump in an effort to undermine his authority and prevent his programs of change from being implemented.
But their stances have backfired—in the 2016 primaries, the majority of the Republican assembly candidates and state senate candidates who openly criticized Trump were not elected.
- Causing division in the Republican party.
Establishment Republicans who are advancing a Deep State agenda are causing disunity and discontentment in the GOP by stirring up division.
Republican Senator Jeff Flake announced on the Senate Floor that he wouldn’t be seeking reelection in the upcoming election, blaming Trump in the process. Flake’s attacks on the President were met with mixed responses from the Republican party.
- Resisting policy change.
Establishment Republicans are resistant to change…and especially the reforms of Trump.
They don’t want individual defenders of freedom and free enterprise in power…they want an alternative to the Democratic party.
- Betraying Republican values.
California Republican leader Chad Mayes is just one example of an Establishment Republican who has betrayed the party’s values of freedom, principles, and cultural change.
While President Trump has withdrawn from the wasteful battle against climate change, Mayes decided to align with leaders who wanted to extend the cap-and-trade program. This policy forces companies to buy permits to release greenhouse gases, destroying businesses, spiking prices, and increasing restrictive government regulation.
Mayes has since stepped down from his role as California State Assembly Leader—because of his betrayal of values. Unfortunately, “turncoat” Republicans still run the Assembly in California…and are still resisting change.
John McCain is another example of a Republican who has betrayed pro-freedom values by fighting again and again to preserve Obamacare. McCain said he supported repeal and replace…but in the end cost the one deciding vote to keep the broken Obamacare alive.
- Drain the swamp!
It’s up to us to put pressure on Republican politicians to stand by their values and principles…not to advance the dangerous, ideological agenda of the Deep State.
We need to drain the swamp…to get rid of leaders who resist change and look to their own self-interest, not the interests of their constituents.
- Best Chance: Republican Primaries
The upcoming election in 2018 is your best opportunity to put people of principle in power.
I encourage you to vote in the primaries. Only a fraction of people who vote in the Presidential election vote in the primaries…that means your vote is far more powerful.
On average, 25% of eligible voters cast their ballots in the primaries. The rest stay at home and don’t mail in their ballot. That means the power of your vote is multiplied by four. For example, if 100 people vote in an election, your 1 in 100 vote is worth only 1%. But if 25 people vote in an election, your 1 in 25 vote is worth 4%.
When you show up to vote and cast your vote for candidates who are pro-family, pro-faith, and pro-freedom, there’s a much better chance of seeing those men and women winning the election.
It’s your best chance to drain the swamp and to see your values and beliefs upheld by your leaders.
