What the Republican Party Needs

This purely my opinion, and not the full extent of my opinions. I've been registered on the site "Republican for a Reason" for a few days now and I'm letting loose my liberty-minded opinions on the site. "Republican for a Reason" is supposedly a grassroots effort by the GOP to hear where we think the party should go from here. Whether my opinions are truly heard or not matters little to me- I have to try. This one is on the future of the party under the category "The G.O.P. in the 21st Century". Note that I was limited to 2000 words.

In 1994, when Republicans were fighting Bill Clinton, it seemed as though true conservatism was being embraced by the Republican party. Sadly, people like Bill Kristol were allowed to have substantial influence and things went downhill from there.

Fast forward to 2000-2008. This is arguably the worst time in history to be a Republican. I voted for Bush in '04 but frankly I regret that I did. The most shameful, reprehensible offenses done to the Constitution have occurred under the Republicans watch. To be quite honest you, the party leadership, brought this down on your own heads with dishonest behavior, un-Constitional actions, and responding in the WORST possible way to 9/11.

I'm reminded of the quote from Benjamin Franklin, "Those who exchange freedom for security deserve neither." To be quite honest you need to embrace the principles that really would separate yourselves from the Democrats. I say that in that way because right now, you are no different than them. You're both "the gang of 135" on Capitol Hill ruining things right now.

This Presidential Election, you had a true conservative. Sadly you spit in his face and added continual insults to injury. He's been a champion of freedom for many years now, since the 70's. His name of course is Dr. Ron Paul. Your treatment of him has been nothing less than idiotic. Even in the face of losing elections and tumbling down the hill of obscurity into oblivion, the Republican party stuck a knife in its own leg when it used downright dirty tactics to keep true conservatives, a.k.a. Ron Paul supporters out of the party's caucuses and conventions.

The G.O.P. needs to:

-TRULY reject Neo-conservatism, which isn't conservatism at all
-SHOW the American people that you have truly gone back to the principles of limited government, adhering to the Constitution, etc.
- GET OUT of globalist endeavors like the U.N. and the C.F.R.. Embracing globalism is only going to hurt us in the long run.

What the Republican Party needs..

...Is a swift kick in the privates. Followed by a succession of kicks while it is down, repeatedly, until the party bleeds and starts to beg for mercy.

But none of that will happen. If you listen to their TV shows and radio programs, they are not even contrite, let alone worried about making a comeback. They will bad mouth RINOs a little bit, but they are already planning their 2012 Sarah Palin campaign. They know that the kind of voters they court will line up behind her---especially after a disastrous Obama first term that scares the hell out of people.

Is republicanforareason.com/intro.aspx rejecting RP comments?

I've jointed the web site http://republicanforareason.com/intro.aspx, but my posts do not appear. Is this web site excluding all posts that mention Ron Paul by name?

Anyone else having this problem?

I thought so too...

But it just takes awhile for the post to show up. Thanks for the kind words, friends.

Nice post

Although I think you meant "gang of 545".

And to left the hurd, I must respectfully disagree about "Country First". I cringed at the implications. I think it's time we declare "Free and Sovereign Individuals First!"

Screw the "governing class" that has driven our Republic out of existence!

You know what! I think you are right and I respectfully stand corrected.

Good job!!!

I stumbled across that site last nite but did not sign up yet to post.

I second that motion.........Kick the neocons out & stop being hypocrites.

The ONLY thing I respected about the McCain campaign was his slogan (even tho he didn't mean it) was COUNTRY FIRST! Lets start truly putting country first. It would be so different & refreshing for a change huh
