When I heard that you decided to propose a Republican counteroffer to Obama's "fiscal cliff" -- a $2.2 trillion ten-year plan that raises more than $800 billion through what you call "Revenue Through Tax Reform" -- you showed me that you have now adopted Republican-speak for tax increases.
Also, I am highly disappointed that you have chosen to shut out TEA Party Conservatives from key positions. You purged a group of Tea Party Republicans from prominent committees. Among those booted were Reps. David Schweikert (R-AZ) and Walter Jones (R-NC), who were both dumped from the Financial Services Committee. Representatives Justin Amash (R-MI) and Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) were removed from the Budget Committee.
According to several sources, Schweikert was told that he was ousted in part because his "votes were not in lockstep with leadership."
I am deeply, deeply disappointed and very angry about this Mr. Boehner. I am no longer a fan of yours and plan to leave the Republican part affiliation over this! My new title is simply, "Conservative."
You and the other spineless RINO Republicans in the House are caving to Obama and his TERRRIBLE, dangerous policies.
You should have IMMEDIATELY investigated BHO in the Benghazi, Libya massacre and cover-up and he should be prosecuted for what he did (and didn't do) to protect the 4 murdered Americans in Benghazi.
I know that I am only one person and you probably won't even read this message. Some "staffer" will read it and write a reply. So be it. I'm done with RINO Republicans who don't have the courage to step up, speak out, and reveal all of the CRIMES of BHO and his ilk.
The voter fraud this past election was massive in the swing states. The voting machines were rigged (George Soros was involved with this). Yet, not a PEEP from the Republicans about this!! NO CHALLENGE to the election fraud! What is the matter with you people??? Allowing a Marxist/ Islamo-Fascist would-be dictator like Obama to get four more years to finish off the job of destroying America as we know it is UNTHINKABLE!
I know...you think that I must be some "crazy" woman who doesn't know what she's talking about. Well, I've done all the research and know what a danger BHO is to our entire nation. Why do you think 17 states desire to secede from the Union? Because of rumors and innuendo? I don't think so. These people know the FACTS and are disgusted that our House of Representatives and you, as the so-called "leader," refuses to do it's job in all these matters. The Fast and Furious investigation went nowhere. That should have been a clue to all of us that the same would happen with Benghazi.
Shame on all of you!!!

I received an email from a blogging friend named Zach who wrote a great article entitled IS IT TIME TO PUT THE GOP OUT OF ITS MISERY? MAYBE - MAYBE NOT.
I don't agree with everything written there (see copy of comment below), however, Zach makes some excellent points! My comment there is currently in moderation so will post it here when it appears there.
However, I basically answered this question:
So how can Social Conservatives possibly come to support a Party that could support legalization of drugs, prostitution and gay marriage without sacrificing their principles?My answer was that I could not, as a Christian first, Conservative second, support any of those social issues without ultimately ending up sacrificing my principles (or going against God's Word - the Bible).
