(Before It's News)

As we have seen time and again on these issues, the CEOs have spoken and the #TruConservatives have folded on the issue:

“The House sponsor of a bill that would require students in public school grades K-12 and higher education institutions to use the restroom that corresponds with their sex at birth is killing the controversial legislation.

Rep. Susan Lynn, R-Mt. Juliet, said Monday she plans on delaying any action on the highly contentious measure in an effort to further study the issue. …

In recent weeks, opposition to the legislation mounted. Last week, executives from 60 businesses, including Cigna, Hilton Hotels, Dow Chemical Co. and Alcoa Inc., signed a letter that was delivered to the Republican leaders of both chambers expressing their concerns about the bill.

In addition to company executives, elected officials, musicians and businesses — including Nashville Mayor Megan Barry, Viacom and Miley Cyrus — have also criticized the measure.”

I’ve never understood what has been called the “Reagan coalition.” It has always struck me as the sucker coalition.

The “social conservatives” supply the votes the Republican Party needs to win elections. Once in power, the Republicans spend all their time pushing through their low-tax/free-market/pro-business economic agenda. Then whenever issues like immigration, gay marriage, or religious liberty come up, Big Business consistently takes the side of the Left and throws all of its economic weight behind the SJW agenda.

It’s not like the #TruConservatives and #TruChristians are a powerless minority in Tennessee. The voters have given them complete control over the state government. Just like in Georgia, they have all the power in the state, but they are incapable of even conserving the privacy of women’s restrooms. They just don’t want to represent the voters who elected them because doing so would anger powerful donors and business interests.

Am I the only one who sees this?
