Senator Olympia Snowe Retires from Senate: One of the last Real Conservatives in Congress




Sen. Olympia Snowe of Maine represents the Republican Party the way it use to be when it was a Classical Conservative Party. Get Big Government out of our wallets and bedrooms. Focus on Economic and Foreign Policy, issues that Conservatives tend to do well on. And use to have a big advantage over Democrats on. Who they made look like Big Government Tax and Spenders, always looking to the Federal Government to solve problems. Sen. Snowe 20-30 years ago fit in perfectly with the Republican Party, because thats the type of Party. That Dwight Eisenhower, Barry Goldwater, Gerry Ford, Everett Dirksen and Ron Reagan built. And why Libertarians use to be Republicans. And why Ron Paul Republicans use to be very common in the GOP. Before Christian and Neoconservatives took over the Party. Today in the GOP, Olympia Snowe looks like a Liberal. Because anyone to the left of a Theocrat or Neoconservative looks like a Liberal. Because they are so far to the right, they can't see the middle with a telescope. But she fits in perfectly with people like Dwight Eisenhower, Barry Goldwater and Ron Reagan and would probably consider those men heroes. And if you listen to her speak on Economic and Foreign Policy, she sounds just like a Republican. From back then as well as today and even if you listen to her on Social Issues. She sounds like a Republican from back in the day or even Ron Paul today. At least to a certain extent, government shouldn't be telling people how to live their own lives. As long as they are not hurting others with what they are doing.

Congress doesn't need less of Olympia Snowe's but more of them. Both Congressional Republicans and Democrats don't have enough Limited Government members. And both parties could use a bunch more, Senate Democrats will probably pick up Sen. Snowe's seat. Meaning Northeastern Republicanism will continue to fade away. Because Big Government Republicanism doesn't play well up there and even Big Government Progressivism is starting to lose popularity. Which is how Scott Brown was elected to the US Senate from Massachusetts, replacing a Big Government Democrat in Ted Kennedy. And hopefully since the Republican Party will no longer accept her, Sen. Snowe. Will work within the Party with the remaining Classical Conservatives that are left. To bring back Libertarians and Independents that use to be Republicans. But are no longer because of the Big Government Republicans that have taken over the Party. Or work to create and Independence Party Movement, made up of Limited Government Independents. A Party that could even replace the GOP as farther to the right it moves.

Losing Olynpia Snowe is bad for the GOP, bad for the Senate and the entire Congress. Because they are losing one more Conservative who bases their politics on the US Constitution and Limited Government. And someone who's anti Big Government and she'll probably be replaced by a Big Government Democrat. But with the Hyper Partisanship in Congress right now, its not surprising why Sen. Snowe would retire. Who's more interested in legislating then fighting Partisan Battles.
