Open Letter to Republicans and Ron Paul Supporters: The GOP Must be Punished for Their Actions at the RNCSubmitted by dwalters on Fri, 08/31/2012 - 17:05
Hello Republicans and Fellow Ron Paul Supporters:
I would like to begin by reciting the definition of a republic. A republic is – a government in which supreme power resides in a body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by elected officers and representatives responsible to them and governing according to law.
Our republic – The Republic of the United States of America – was designed with intentions to limit the centralization of power. The central government was to have limited powers which were outlined in the Constitution. The remainder of governing power was to be left with the People and the States. The 10th Amendment reads:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the People.
It is clear by these sentiments from Our Bill of Rights that American Republicanism – in the spirit of Our founders – must stand for minimal central rule and maximum sovereignty of the States and the People.
Given this description of republicanism and the actions taken by the Establishment GOP at the Republican National Convention, a striking question emerges – How in the hell can a party that has such a healthy appetite for usurping the power of the States and the People call itself the Republican Party?
The Republicans cannot be rewarded for their destructive actions. They have placed centralized rule in higher regard than republicanism. They no longer deserve to be a party.
As Americans, we must ensure that Mitt Romney never wins the presidency of Our nation. We must do everything we can to expose him and his past actions. We must derail the candidacy of any mainstream Republican that does not stand for liberty. We must actively work against the tyranny. We must punish the Republican Party.
It saddens me to say it, but rewarding the Republican Party by electing Romney will be worse for America than another four years of Obama. Voting for Romney is an endorsement of totalitarian rule. Voting for Romney sends a clear message to the Establishment that the Liberty Movement can be stepped on and it will take it like a good little group of sheeple.
Personally, I’ll be voting for the Libertarian Candidate for president – Gary Johnson. You can do as you wish, but I beg of you don’t vote for Romney. Please don’t push America further down the road of tyranny.
It’s time to teach the Republican Party about blowback.
Thanks for your time.
