A Divorce From The GOP

A Divorce From The GOP

The Republican Party, from its inception in 1856, has stood for conservative pro-family and pro-Constitutional values. Those values are what first drew me to the Republican Party and they are what have led me to be engaged in my unwavering support of same.

I have opposed those Republicans who support abortion, homosexual marriage, expanded government, increased spending and other political positions that others and I argue are antithetical to what our Party has long stood for.

But the Republican Party we have supported and fought for is no longer the same. We have elected candidates who have behaved – and supported policies – more in line with Democrats than those standards we expect from true Conservatives. And, specific to that point, we have paid dearly as a nation for it.

Now, in the aftermath of back-to-back humiliating presidential losses, we would think that the Republican leadership has learned its lesson and is going to turn back to the conservative principles that made the Party of Lincoln the Party we once knew. But it appears that isn’t the case.

The concerns and values of the Party that gave us President Eisenhower and President Reagan have been abandoned and, despite the evidence that conservative values gave us the greatest off-year election victory in decades in 2010 – the Republican hierarchy appears to be committed to doubling down on a shift to embrace those issues conservatives have always opposed.

There are renewed calls for what they view as a more “broad-based and compassionate” Party. They appear more determined than ever to embrace amnesty for illegal aliens in an attempt to erode Hispanics support for Democrats. They are increasingly more favorable to the spending programs designed to show they care about blacks.

There is now open contempt for grass-roots activist programs and the Tea Party in favor of becoming more like the Democrats.

We do not need another Democrat Party. The one that exists has done nothing but set us on the path to the fiscal and social abyss.

The attempted transmogrification of conservative values into the values of the late John Murtha, the late Arlen Specter, and the former Congressman Mike Castle of Delaware are not the values that made this nation the greatest in the world.

We have a decision to make. As Ronald Reagan famously said, “You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.” (A Time For Choosing; 10/27/64)

For many of us, that decision is now clear. Capitulating to increased taxes, debauchery, the murder of the unborn, big government and increased spending, rewarding those who have blatantly violated our sovereign borders, courts that no longer adhere to boundaries prescribed by the Constitution, ad nauseum – is not the way to restore the great and noble experiment called the United States of America.

Just as a small band of men took it upon themselves to fight to insure our freedoms at the creation of our nation, so too must those who agree with what I am saying do today.

If the Republican Party hierarchy refuses to understand that, then our decision has been made for us, and we must divorce ourselves from them in favor of supporting new paths to electing those who will.

Barack Obama is not our problem as such – albeit, he is a malignant parasite who openly schemes to suck the lifeblood from America in favor of government dependency and a Socialist State.

We are the problem if we continue to support the party and party hierarchy who have made this possible. Republicans have made this possible by abandoning the core principles that America was founded upon. They have abandoned truth for a lie and our children will pay for it.

If the Republican Party hierarchy refuses to understand that, then our decision has been made for us, and we must divorce ourselves from them in favor of supporting new paths to electing those who will. After all, unfaithfulness has always been adequate grounds for divorce.

    The “next” American Presidential Candidate must be someone the Liberals and all politicians have never heard of. He or She must have a total clean background. American Citizen and born in USA by two US Citizens. Education and ‘friends’ well checked out. Everything by the Constitution of the United States! That’s a start. Now, how do we find such a person that is an ‘unknown?’

    • michael November 28, 2012 at 12:30 am #

      Sorry to say that I do not believe we have any chance at all if we wait for 2016. Obama, and the movement behind him have been planning a soft revolution for many decades. They are thugs and will cement their agenda in the next 3 to 4 years. Very little can be done about this especially with a Republican Party that is controlled by bureaucratic politicians.

      Prayer and hone up on your self-preservation skills.

  5. michael November 27, 2012 at 3:47 pm #

    Mychal, your article is spot on.
    The Republican Party “establishment” is in firm control. They do not share in our Founders “vision” for America. They barely tolerate the Tea Party and conservatives within its ranks and there is no getting around them. So, barring the emergence of a “True Patriot” who can cut right through their grip on us, I believe that a coordinated, mass exodus out of the Republican Party will make a global statement. Given a high spirit of ‘patriotic revolution’ we can draw the attention of the American people who are hungry for a faithful leader.

    National Freedom Day — February 1, 2013 will give us enough time to coordinate getting the word out.

    Many conservative kindred have argued with me over the past several years that a new party would fracture conservatives into two groups of less critical mass (i.e., those clinging to the GOP and those seeking a true representation of conservative values), thereby giving the Liberals an even greater political advantage. Well, a quick retrospective yields very sobering evidence of the repetitious outcomes associated with our loyalty to a party now fraught with Republicrat RINO's. I'm afraid the divorce is final…I am now officially "ISO" a new, more fulfilling "LTR".

  7. Wakinyan November 27, 2012 at 3:39 pm #

    I didn’t write the following but it does point out some of the fundamental differences between conservative and liberal thinking. And it seems to pertain to your subject: Wakinyan


    The person that wrote this is a college student.
    Perhaps there is hope for us after all.


    Dear American liberals, leftists, Social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, et al: We have stuck together since the late 1950’s for the sake of the kids, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has clearly run its course.

    Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right for us all, so let’s just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.

    Here is a model separation agreement:
    –Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a similar portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.

    –We don’t like redistributive taxes so you can keep them.
    –You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU.–Since you hate guns and war, we’ll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military.
    –We’ll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and you can go with wind, solar and biodiesel.
    –You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O’Donnell. You Are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough
    to move all three of them.
    –We’ll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart and Wall Street.
    –You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps, homeless, homeboys, hippies, druggies and illegal aliens.
    –We’ll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO’s and rednecks.
    –We’ll keep the Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood

    –You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we’ll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us.
    –You can have the peaceniks and war protesters. When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we’ll help provide them security.

    –We’ll keep our Judeo-Christian values.
    –You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U.N. But we will no longer be paying the bill.

    –We’ll keep the SUV’s, pickup trucks and over sized luxury cars. You can take every Volt and Leaf you can find.
    –You can give everyone health care if you can find any practicing doctors.
    –We’ll continue to believe health care is a luxury and not a right.
    –We’ll keep “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” and “The National Anthem.”
    –I’m sure you’ll be happy to substitute “Imagine”, “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing”, “Kum Ba Ya” or “We Are the World”.
    –We’ll practice trickle down economics and you can continue to give trickle up poverty your best shot.
    –Since it often so offends you, we’ll keep our history, our name and our flag.

    Would you agree to this? If so, please pass it along to other like-minded liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, just hit delete. In the spirit of friendly parting, I’ll bet you answer which one of us will need whose help in 15 years.

    John J. Wall
    Law Student and An American

    P.S. Also, please take Ted Turner, Sean Penn, Martin & Charlie Sheen, Barbara Streisand, & (Hanoi) Jane Fonda with you.

    P.S.S. And you won’t have to press 1 for English when you call our country.

    Forward This Every Time You Get It ! Let’s Keep This Going, Maybe Some Of It Will Start sinking in.

    The Republican Party is desperately in need of a facelift but they cannot take their cues from godless liberals in both the media and Democrat party. They rightfully got rid of Michael Steele but now they must rid themselves of Reince Priebus as well. Selling out their soul for the worthless vote for a handful of uneducated people will not set this country on the right course.

    Obama is continually being celebrated by these lemmings because he has given many of them the impression that life no longer centers on self reliance nor hard work, instead merely sticking out one’s hands and waiting for the government to toss out a couple of crumbs towards us will suffice! Until of course, the gravy train runs out and it will!

    No matter who the GOP prepares for the 2016 election, it wont make much of a difference. By that time, Obama has already been afforded nearly 8 years to unleash such unprecedented damage upon our nation which will take years to undo! Neither John McCain nor Mitt Romney possessed the kind of aggression which was desperately needed to publicly unmask the truly inexperienced and unqualified community organizer from Chicago.

    America’s fate should not be directed by special interest groups who are only interested in serving their own selfish desires. A so-called “woman’s vote” should not be centered on feminist ideals such as “abortion on demand”, “tax payer subsidized contraception”, “Planned Parenthood”, unfair “Affirmative Action work & educational related placement for unqualified women”.

    Minorities must follow the same exceptional standards as whites and every other American citizen based on intellect and common knowledge. Welfare & food stamps must be outlawed. St. Paul said, “If you don’t work, you don’t eat!” Affirmative Action must be repealed! Children, the mentally unstable & the elderly will be afforded safety nets through certain government subsidies. Anyone who breaks into this country will be arrested and sent back immediately to their country of origin. No exceptions! English will remain the official language of the U.S.! If Islamic terrorism recurs, Muslims will be profiled for safety measures. Able bodied unmarried men & women cannot continue to engage in fornication while producing children they cannot & will not care for. If the government advocated on behalf of public sterilizations & hysterectomies do you think such reckless behaviours would persist? Of course not!

    Gay people have always lived alongside heterosexuals since time immemorial and they were and still only make up a small segment of the population. What they do in the privacy of their own home should remain there. However, the practice of homosexuality is unatural and should be publicly frowned upon just like every other morally corrosive behaviour including incest, bestiality, pornography, prostitution & polyamory! No more public displays of the fallacy of “gay pride”. Marriage is not a right. It is a sacred union between one man & one women ordained by God with the express purpose of producing children to build civilization. Sexually explicit behaviours are not worthy of being discussed, especially through academic settings where children are involved!

    America cannot continue to quake at the outrageous demands of a small minority of Atheists who want to de-Christianize our heavily Christianized nation. There are Anti-Christian nations out there which exist, such as China and North Korea and they are collectively devoid of the Christian presence. Atheist are welcomed to take up permanent residence in those anti-tolerant, pro-government controlled utopias in the manner of their choosing. And we will gladly bid them “adieu” should they deside to defect from our heavily Christian & Democratic nation!

    Tax payers should not be forced to subsidize healthcare for the general populace & illegal aliens let alone the useless, “Aids research phenomenon! Pornography should not be shown on tax payer subsidized computers in public libraries! It should be publicly outlawed for the greater good of humanity! Adultery & promiscuity should not be glamorized especially through public forums like television, advertising & film!

    In short, most of the illicit & immoral acts which I’ve mentioned above are generally pushed and publicly promoted by liberals. They have spent the last 50 years wrecking our society by virtually legalizing the most soul crippling and morally corrupt policies imaginable! This is why Obama ridiculed Mitt Romney & the entire Republican party when he insisted in his snarky & arrogant manner during his pre-rehearsed townhall forums that “the Republicans want to take us back to the 1950’s!” As if to say that the morally Christian based & upstanding manner in which America was socially upheld during that time was was somehow deplorable!

    Thanks Mychal. I was just thinking the same thing this a.m. The Republican Party no longer represents my interests. The conservatives within the Party are in a minority. So, it is time for another political party. We really don't have much choice. In reality, we only have one party anyway. The Republican leadership has proven themselves to be spineless, and unwilling to stand up to the Democrats and liberals. So, what are we left with? The Republicans constantly caving in and letting the Democrats run roughshod over the political process. The result is very little in the way of true representation. The only thing to do now, is to leave the party and see what we can do by starting out in another direction. There really are no other options.

    I have always believed that we can never be a 3 party country. I now believe that is our only hope. You are absolutely correct. The GOP will continue to push, the likes of Jeb Bush, at us and we will only continue to loose, so what’s the difference.

    Someone, (Allen West, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, etc.) needs to immediately start building the coalition, whether Tea Party or another entity, to enter the 2014 race. I think now is the time that all conservatives will join and hopefully some of the RINO voters will also see it is the only hope we have.

    It is time to leave the national republican party and forge our own destiny. You are certainly correct we cannot continue down the present path. it is sickening to watch the national republican congressional cowards capitulate to demands that have yet to even be made. They appear somewhat like the French army whose motto for defense is "run & hide". Once taken over they capitulate and collaborate. Unless we go in a different direction than either national party we can be assured of further erosion of our moral and ethical principles. The continual weakening of our defense department may herald the time to secede they won't have enough gestapo to make a difference.

    • Linda Carter November 27, 2012 at 8:17 pm #

      Some of these RINOs just want to keep their jobs. What the conservatives need to do is infiltrate and replace the RINOs, as a 3rd party never has much of a chance. That's what the radical left wingers did, they infiltrated the Democrats and took over.

      Dick, I do understand what you are saying, however I have to agree with linda Carter, a third party will only divide Conservatives, allowing the Liberals to win every election. Our path is clear, we must erraticate all the Rinos, infiltrate the Republican Party from the ground up and vote those out that don't vote Conservative.
