WEFOUNDWhy I Am a Republican: A History of the Republican Party, a Defense of Its Policy, and the Reasons Which Justify Its Continuance in Power, With ... the Republican Candidates (Classic Reprint)


Why am I a Republican? Because I want to use my brain, not lose it. I value the freedom of thought, critical thinking skills, independence, individualism, capitalism, and the U. S. Constitution. I believe in the ideal that the USA represents.

Yes, there are some segments of our society who willfully and purposefully denigrate America; i. e., antifa, BLM, anthem kneelers, political correctness proponents, judges who legislate from the bench, illegal immigrants, and terrorists, to name a few. These perpetrators aren’t just thinking about destruction. They’re acting on it. As they say, if you’re not part of the solution, look in the mirror, because you, then, are part of the problem.

Even with all of this unnecessary turmoil, I still believe in the ideal of the USA. Why? Because the USA represents something far greater than any one individual. Yet, individualism is part of that ideal. Not collectivism.

It wasn't a fight I went looking for. On March 3, the popular radio host Mark Levin opened his show with an outburst (he always opens his show with an outburst): "There are people who have somehow claimed the conservative mantle … You don't even know who they are … They're so irrelevant … It's time to name names …! The Canadian David Frum: where did this a-hole come from? … In the foxhole with other conservatives, you know what this jerk does? He keeps shooting us in the back … Hey, Frum: you're a putz."

I mention all this not because I expect you to be fascinated with my life story, but to establish some bona fides. In the conservative world, we have a tendency to dismiss unwelcome realities. When one of us looks up and murmurs, "Hey, guys, there seems to be an avalanche heading our way," the others tend to shrug and say, he's a "squish" or a RINO—Republican in Name Only.

Levin had been provoked by a blog entry I'd posted the day before on my site, NewMajority.com. Here's what I wrote: President Obama and Rush Limbaugh do not agree on much, but they share at least one thing: Both wish to see Rush anointed as the leader of the Republican party.

I am a Republican because Republicans understand that while it’s okay to split a loaf a bread, you shouldn’t split a baby. Republicans understand that while some compromise may be essential in order to maintain a civilized society, if someone suggests that you walk down a dangerous path, it’s not prudent to compromise by just going  part of the way.

When House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was defeated last month, I was struck by comments from liberal political analysts, lamenting his defeat as a tragedy, because, they said, he was one of the few Republican members of Congress who was “willing to compromise in order to get things done.” While I take no position as to the outcome of that particular election, it did occur to me when I was listening to the pundits the next morning that to tout “compromise in order to get things done” is a very Democrat thing to say these days. And it completely ignores what any intelligent person knows to be true – that while compromise can sometimes be a virtue, compromise can also be a vice.

Money.
Money, money, money, money, money!
That's what matters. Money is the important thing. I love money!
I don't care about people, children, women, the environment, religion, global warming, justice, peace.
It's money that matters.
I love it. I need more and more and more.
The rich need to get richer and fuck the poor.
So, come join me in the Republican Party.
We know what's important.

You are another of those ignorant liberals posting a pile of fake lies. If you were mature enough to truly understand economics the environment and Government, would might understand.
Yet you fall victim of the liberal jabs talking points, Used to control ignorant people like you. You've been warned of your obvious mistakes, Don't be stupid and keep repeating the same mistakes.

Children are liberals because they know no better.
When do you stop being a child.

I am a proud republican and not a f*****g lemming. I have the power to think for myself and make my own decisions and not wait for the liberal elite to tell me what to think.
