A vote for change

Over the last several decades and more so since Reagan left office, the country has moved steadily leftward politically or at least that is the perception I get. I believe this has a lot to do with the influence of our public schools, print and news media, and the entertainment industry. For all of their efforts however the country is not better off and in fact is worse while the citizens have become even more needy, fearful of everything, and dependent on government. That perception has to change and so too does the American people.

Anybody who actually thinks Democrat government policies work better than Republicans should actually just look at the biggest slums in America. Look at Detroit, Chicago, New Orleans, Atlanta, Miami, Cleveland, Washington DC. In every case those jurisdictions perpetually elect Democrats to run their local governments and they perpetually have higher crime rates, more poverty, more people on welfare, and more under- educated workers. If Democrats know what they are doing why are people still living in this condition? It’s not for lack of trying, or having time to enact their policies or lack of money as most of those cities have spent millions trying to help. So could it be their ideas just don’t actually work?? I think that is a fact they are not willing to face and why I would never vote for a Democrat. Their ideas however noble or lofty just do not work in American society.

The US city of Detroit, once a symbol of US industrial power, filed for bankruptcy, with debts of $18.5 billion on July 18, 2013, which makes Detroit the largest city in US history to do so.

So this brings us to the GOP who for years have been identified as the party of the rich rascist, homophobic, elitist, etc etc. Some of that reputation might be well earned if you believe the party is made up of just Bernie Madoff types. I don’t believe that however.Embed from Getty Images
I think the party leadership  may identify more closely with crony capitalists and Wall Street tycoons but its large base of conservative voters does not.  This explains Bush, McCain and Romney. Running on a platform of conservative values George Bush won twice however he turned out to be a Progressive spending more money and growing government as well as any Democrat in the office. The crony capitalists had their way and helped elect Bush and later pushed McCain and Romney on to the party faithful telling us they were the only guys that could win elections. They were dead wrong. When you get down to it a moderate, big government spending Republican is not much different than a Democrat and to the party faithful they would rather stay home then support such a character.

Isn’t the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result?

Why would anyone think a Democrat or someone pretending to be Republican think their policies will make a difference if elected? What would make them successful? Spending more money, taxing more citizens? Growing government more? More time in office? Hasn’t that already been tried in the cities I mentioned above and in the country now? Also, there is never going to be 100% consensus or agreement of public policy so you cannot blame the voters for the reason the policies do not work especially with a party majority. Democrats held control of the Congress for four decades at one point.
I laughed when I saw an ad recently that called, Tom Tancredo a Republican running for governor in Colorado,  too conservative for Colorado? Really, only a socialist would say that. Since when did limited government, fiscal responsibility and adherence to the Constitution become too conservative, radical or a bad thing?

The way I see it, both party leadership would have us believe that the only candidate that is viable is one that supports growing government and giving the people what they want without bankrupting the country.

That’s why they really hate Tea Party candidates and why a candidate that offers a distinction from the rest of the pack might just win an election but more importantly should win every election if we are to save the country from itself.

don't tread on me
