When I was age 10, I read a book called
American Communist Party Goals (published in 1920). My family criticized
Franklin Roosevelt for his socialist programs. I was raised to be an
anti-socialist “Constitutional Conservative”.
There had always been two wings in the
Republican Party. The Liberal Wing was called the Rockefeller Republicans. I read “Conscious of a Conservative in 1964
and concluded that I was a Conservative Republican. I noticed that Republicans
would campaign like a Conservative, but govern like a Democrat. The split in the Republican Party goes back
at least 60 years and may have been there from its beginning.
I like the Republican Platform, but I
don’t like Republicans who don’t follow the Platform and don’t follow the US
Constitution (as written).
I’ve seen “Republicans” campaign as
Conservatives and then vote with the Democrat Liberals to help Democrats
advance their agenda. I’ve seen
Republicans avoid the real issues and not attack them directly.
I believe the current campaign finance law
continues to allow special interests to unduly influence legislation and other
government actions. I oppose campaign contributions from any special interests.
I believe that elected officials need to work for the voters.
I’ve seen Republicans bribed act as enablers
to harmful Democrat initiatives including legislation like TPA fast track. I’ve
seen “Republicans” refuse to demand needed reforms in how legislation is
I’ve seen Republican names on the Council
on Foreign Affairs roster and seen “Republicans” defend globalist schemes. I
don’t believe in Internationalism and would remove it from the federal
government’s list of things to do.
I am a Trump fan and have been since the
first Republican Presidential Debate in 2016. Trump clearly ran against the Democrats
and the Republican Elite.
