The defunding of Obamacare (currently via the Continuing Resolution) has become a defining moment in the ongoing battle between the establishment ruling class of the Grand Old Party and Conservatives. Sadly, it's become a battle within the conservative movement itself. This is a "red line" moment that I believe is not only worth drawing, but fighting to the political death of the feckless Republican Party. If we can't find the courage to put it all on the line in the face out-right unconstitutional tyranny with the majority of the public on our side, then we will never fight.
As a Conservative, this is a fight worth having where we should not and cannot blink. It's time to separate the Sheep from the Goats. Yes, it's that serious. If you don't get the reference, then do yourself a favor and go read it in the Bible.
I will be taking my personal "whip count" of media types, twitterverse, and the blogosphere to see where folks stand. Excluding current politicians and staffers. Tweet to me where you stand with the hashtag #DefundObamacareWhipCount
