Republicans: Restore Your Party and Your Country

A Republican is one who values the legacy of the American Revolutionaries: “A Republic, if you can keep it.”

“I believe with you that morality, compassion, generosity are innate elements of the human constitution; that there exists a right independent of force; that a right to property is founded in our natural wants, in the means with which we are endowed to satisfy these wants, and the right to what we acquire by those means without violating the similar rights of other sensible beings; that no one has a right to obstruct another exercising his faculties innocently for the relief of sensibilities made a part of his nature; that justice is the fundamental law of society; that the majority, oppressing an individual, is guilty of a crime, abuses its strength, and by acting on the law of the strongest, breaks up the foundations of society; that action by the citizens in person, in affairs within their reach and competence, and in all others by representatives chosen immediately and removable by themselves, constitutes the essence of a republic…”¬if_t=share_comment#!/note.php?note_id=453914247083

Sean Hannity often declares, “I am not a Republican. I am a Conservative.” Many Conservatives have invaded the Republican Party because they have been rejected by America. Their resurgence in 2009 was defeated by NY-23rd. Recently, they have been defeated by Mississippi: MS rejected that life begins at conception.

Libertarians, like Ron Paul, have also invaded the Republican Party for the same reason. The Libertarian Party, whose founding principle is anarchism, has been rejected by America.

Democrats, like Ronald Reagan and Rick Perry, have conquered the Republican Party. Other Democrats, without joining the Republican Party, are admired by Conservatives who have invaded the Party: Newt Gingrich is a big fan of Franklin Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson.

Americans: Can you keep a Republic?

Like McCain, Gingrich is anti free speech.

"The error seems not sufficiently eradicated, that the operations of the mind, as well as the acts of the body, are subject to the coercion of the laws ... Reason and free enquiry are the only effectual agents against error ... It is error alone which needs the support of government. Truth can stand by itself. Subject opinion to coercion: whom will you make your inquisitors? Fallible men; men governed by bad passions, by private as well as public reasons." - Thomas Jefferson

"The latest heartthrob of the GOP conservatives is 10-term Congressman & former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, born & raised a Southern Baptist but a man who then flip-flopped by converting to Catholicism in 2009 at the behest of his third wife (a House staffer 24 years his junior whom helped Gingrich cheat on his second wife). Romney has been married once, for 42 years. Conservatives seem to have no problem that Gingrich is both a religious and marital flip-flopper.

Worse, they don’t seem to object that in the past decade his “consulting” firm got $37 million in fees from pharmaceutical firms lobbying for the 2003 prescription drug benefit (Medicare Part D), from ADM and ethanol makers lobbying for subsidies, from Freddie Mac lobbying for federal support for the soon-to-be toxic sub-prime mortgage market, and from banks lobbying for the 2008 “TARP” bailout (which Gingrich endorsed). When he wasn’t busy pursuing these various corruptions, Gingrich was busy promoting Al Gore’s “cap and trade” legislation and global warming myths in widely-publicized TV and print ads sitting cozily on a coach with Nancy Pelosi, whose political tactics he has subsequently characterized as “despicable,” “dishonest” and “vicious.” Well, it takes one to know one."

DARK-AGES warriors, like Fox News, support the brazenly corrupt so long as they are anti separation of church and state.

“I, however, place economy among the first & most important republican virtues, & public debt as the greatest of the dangers to be feared.” - Thomas Jefferson

Romney has consistently exhibited these REPUBLICAN virtues. As general partner in Bain Capital, Romney was FRUGAL & CAUTIOUS, spending little on office appearance. In 2011 as he campaigns, this multimillionaire flies commercial on low-cost air carrier Southwest Airlines.

At the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, he inherited a $370 million deficit. He left behind a $100 million surplus, contributing $1 million of his own money, & drawing NO SALARY for 3 years. As MA governor with both houses of the MA legislature having large Democratic majorities, Romney faced an immediate $650 million shortfall & a projected $3 billion deficit for the next year. By 2006, MA had a $600–700 million surplus. Romney drew a salary of $1 per year.!/photo.php?fbid=2760810863227&set=a.1268872285695.139307.1346466773&type=1&theater

Gingrich is much worse than McCain. They are both speech infringers and anti capitalism. But Gingrich is CORRUPTION personified.

Gingrich was ordered to pay an "unprecedented $300,000 penalty, the first time in the House’s 208-year history it has disciplined a speaker for ethical wrongdoing.... Gingrich admitted that he brought discredit to the House and broke its rules by failing to ensure that financing for two projects would not violate federal tax law and by giving the House ethics committee false information."

This is an excerpt from a Ludwig Von Mises Institute article - "Many libertarians abandon minarchy in favor of anarchy when they realize that even a minarchist government is unlibertarian.”

Wikipedia states: Anarcho-capitalist Murray Rothbard has stated that "Capitalism is the fullest expression of anarchism, and anarchism is the fullest expression of capitalism." Anarcho-capitalism is an individualist anarchist political philosophy that advocates the elimination of the state...

This is from the Young Americans for Liberty's Mission Statement: "WE, as Young Americans for Liberty believe: THAT government is the negation of liberty..."

I am not a Conservative, nor a Liberal, nor a Libertarian. I am a Jeffersonian.

Two books.

Ron Paul is the candidate of Iran, which invaded the US and occupied it for 444 days.

Inspite of Iran's initiations of force, most recently, her invasion of Britain on November 29, 2011, a few days ago, Ron Paul holds that it is okay for Iran to have nukes.

Santorum attacks Romney in his victory speech while Romney congratulates him.

Santorum agrees with Obama, who says the Constitution is flawed and that he wants to fundamentally transform America. Santorum maligns the Founders, saying that the pursuit of happiness is harming America. He defines liberty as freedom with responsibility to OTHERS. Otherism is collectivism. Obama and Santorum are socialists.

Santorum derides the ME-generation, the kind of Patrick Henry. Here is a sentence with an I and three MEs: “I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"
Thomas Jefferson declared, "All men are created equal & INDEPENDENT." Independence = Freedom. "Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual."

Obama and Santorum are anti independence, anti freedom.

A Conservative Party exists. It has been rejected by America again and again, most recently by New York’s 23rd Congressional District, in 2009 & 2010. Conservatives have invaded the Republican Party.

The Conservative Party is “not an American political party, but a religious party – A PHENOMENON FORBIDDEN BY THE CONSTITUTION.” It craves to conserve, not the Declaration of Independence, but, the DARK-AGES.
