Recently, Republican Party Chairman, Reince Priebus, announced plans to spend $10 million dollars reaching out to minority groups in a bid to attract a different group of American voters. The Republicans also plan to begin to embrace immigration reform and to soften the party’s stance on gay-marriage. A recent study commissioned by Republicans concluded that the party’s electoral success hinged on becoming more “inclusive and welcoming” of “non-traditional voters.” In other words, the Republicans are caving, and moderate and liberal influences are about to take over what is left of the opposition party, and conservatism is about to be bloodied.
Apparently, the Republican Party no longer wishes to pretend to represent “old white male” conservative voters. The people that work hard, pay their taxes, and raise their families to love God, respect morality and observe the law. Somehow, Republicans have come to view winning as more important than fighting the good fight. Somehow, Republicans have come to believe that Log Cabin Republicans and children of illegal aliens will provide for the Republican Party of tomorrow and I resent their foolishness. It will only cause the future defeat of their party and the further destruction of America.
Soon to be invited to the Republican ranks, the minority homosexual community or the “Log Cabin Republicans,” was a group founded in 1977 to defeat California legislation (see Briggs Initiative) banning homosexuals from teaching in public schools. Since its birth as a homosexual advocacy group, the Log Cabin Republicans (LCR) has only endorsed one Republican candidate for President, John McCain. All prior Republican Presidential candidates failed to secure this groups support because all Republican candidates subscribed to the traditional definition of marriage and paid little attention to the false cause of gay rights.
Many wrong thinking Republicans believe this group shares a conservative ideology. Aside from what some consider a fiscally conservative, small government, low taxes, free markets, strong defense slant, nothing could be further from the truth. Log Cabin Republicans support liberal causes including “Corporate Diversity”; ”Family Fairness”; and “Is Sexual Orientation a Choice?” It is also worth noting that LCR was instrumental in defeating “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (see Log Cabin Republicans v. United States) and refused to participate in the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). I wonder why.
I lost my faith in any established political party a long time ago. They are all, owned by “big money” influences of one philosophy or another. The Republican and Democrat Party have both done their fair share of damage to the U.S. Constitution and fiscal strength of our nation. Now it appears both parties wish to destroy what is remaining of traditional American values by setting up the old “big tent.”
I have some news for Republicans. I only vote for conservatives. Your national party has not been worth a damn since Reagan left office. You are losing the political fight because few of you possess the courage to tell the truth and stand for traditional American values. You may move to the center to accommodate your newfound homosexual constituency and the entitlement cultured Hispanics like your competition President Obama, but in the end, you will lose the core of your party, conservatives.
Without tradition, there is nothing conservative. The basis for Conservatism is tradition. Voting Republican does not make anyone a conservative any more than owning a gun makes one a constitutionalist. If conservatism fails to win the culture war reshaping our government and political parties, we will all become a nation of indentured servants and slaves to the coming tidal wave of immoral tolerance washing over our Republic.
Rarely do Americans consider the long-term costs of “feel good” ideas like tolerance and social justice. Instead of acknowledging their failures and working to correct the damage they have caused the Republican Party is about to undertake a “rebranding” by unfolding its “Big Tent” strategy again. A vision that includes gay marriage, dual citizens, and the entitlement addicted. Big money influences have laid down the law and Republican lackeys are bowing to their demands.
Political favors will not solve America problems. Respect for honored traditions by honorable men and women will. If the Republican Party turns its backs on conservatism, they might as well hand the government over to the Democrats. Based upon the last 13 years there does not seem to be much of a difference, just one failure after another.
Damn these Cowards!
