To those of you who believe in a government made of two parties with separate and different ideas and principles; that at their core they are supposed to also get along with each other, to compromise values and principles for the sake of getting things done? You are living in a dream. That is no government that represents different segments of society, beliefs systems, political views, or even states issues. It is akin to why we fought the revolutionary war in the first place– to rid ourselves of a KING and allow for the greatest amount of liberty for all, given to us by GOD!
“Let’s have a new first party – a Republican Party – raising a banner of bold colors, no pale pastels. A banner instantly recognizable as standing for certain values which will not be compromised.” – Ronald Reagan, 1975
“While I myself am a registered conservative, I look to the Republican Party as the closest representative of conservative values in American politics. Overtime, that appears to be fading. Sometimes I look at Washington lately and I wonder.”– Quote Shawn Hannity
It seems that there is a policy gripping the electorate of today that is inspiring the belief, “You must go along in order to get along”. This kind of policy is completely at odds with freedom and liberty. It hands over all control to few people with like-minded views. A command and control style of government, after all who will determine the “get along” part and enforce the “must go along part” if not a King like power?
To the liberal mind the use of government in their favor isn’t forced control, so it isn’t seen as some forced compliance to a power. At the same time they would use the systems of liberty and freedom, free speech and alike to gain power. Once in power though those tools are no longer useful and become too dangerous to be allowed.
Republicans at their core should be opposed to such governing. They should present bold arguments to the people so they are able to look at the contrasts, the differences between these two political standards. Instead they see short-term political successes and lust after that success. They are willing to forfeit their bold colors to duplicate that success for themselves by following the Democrats advice and models. For the GOP this demonstrates that they have lost faith in their founding principles. They see power slipping away from them and so embrace the “political life-line” made of smoke in a failed attempt to rescue themselves from losing sight and faith in liberty and GOD given rights. The GOP is willing to slit their wrists, by watered down policies they embrace and birthing version of the Democrat policies as their own. As the republican self-inflicted suicidal wounds bleed potential votes they don’t even see liberty fading away and the need to protect it by standing in the way of Democratic managed decay.
Where are the leaders of tomorrow that prize lady liberty, who would be sworn to protect her, not for personal benefits, but for future ones?? Who will boldly point towards the Democrat policies, deceptions, manipulations, and corruptions that represent virtually every antithesis of the conservative principles: Big government, lack of freedom, invasion of privacy, increased taxes, harms businesses, higher costs with worse results, more government dependency, less innovation, more regulations.
Is it possible to distinguish one party from the other. Like two bold colored candles burning together, slowly melting into one. though their rhetoric seems partisan and different it is drowned out by deceitful actions that are nearly impossible to discern one from the other. With the melting of those two candles one light is being extinguished as they melt into the same pot of power. No longer two separated ideas with their own principles willing to stand firm for what they believe in.
I call out to the Republican party first and then to the rest of you, what man or women is going to allow lady liberty to be turned into some whore of tyranny; who of you would hand to their future kids the principles of compromising national security by refusing to defend liberty politically here at home? Who of you are counting on renewed leadership between the melting pot of leaders of today and those mythical future leaders you all point to in hope of finding “them” that would lead rather than to cower in the shadows?
So what are you going to do about it?
