Sorry GOP, an ‘R’ Is Not Enough
We need a subcategory of conservative since political party seems to mean nothing anymore. Sadly we have to work in the structure of political parties though and need to get a majorly of conservatives in the Republican Party.
Check it out:
I’ve been a Republican all my life—a loyal Republican. The problem is, our party has not been loyal to its own principles. That is why I am running for the United States Senate.
The Republican Party faces an identity crisis. What do we really stand for? Conservatives within the party, like myself, believe we should re-embrace the Constitution and stand unapologetically for the divinely-inspired American Idea of individual liberty, limited government, and free-market values.
The GOP establishment, on the other hand, believes we should stand simply for the letter “R.” They claim that America’s problems will be solved if we just elect more people with Rs behind their names, but their own history shows otherwise.
Since the Reagan Revolution gave way to the “kinder, gentler” GOP (translation: surrender Republicans), conservative victories have been few and fleeting. Even the 1994 Contract with America is no exception. Within six years, the cumulative budget of the 95 major government programs slated for elimination had increased by thirteen percent. And that’s when spending really took off.
