We are quickly approaching the death of conservatism or at the very least being pushed into a state of obscurity.
Throughout its modern history the Republican party has regularly demonized in the media. It’s party and people are called racists, bigots, nazi’s, homophobes, and it is the party of the rich and powerful. They stand accused of trying to destroy social security, and are against the poor and down trodden. All lies of course. Its the politics of deception. All promoted by the biased liberal mainstream media. The ONLY thing that has changed in the attacks by the liberal Democrats is that today they are more open about it. The anger and hatred has exposed itself.
Liberal Democrats have always accused conservatism and Republicans of what it is guilty of itself. Republicans get busted for hypocrisy from time to time but the liberal Democrats are cursed with it.
Many believe we need another political party or get rid of the two party system. There is no time to build a new party and take a decade or two to build up its strengths. We have to strengthen the one we have. A no party system will simply mean the liberal Democrats will have no opposition.
Democrats employ very aggressive tactics for recruiting registered voters. They have made voter registration methods more easily and skewed to their advantage. If you are upset about “vote by mail” that is a liberal Democrat creation and there was a single person behind it, its origin, and his name is Mark Elias a liberal lawyer. If you prescribe to the idea that “Democrats want to open the borders for votes you are only half right. They also want those registration numbers. The slogan used for the local anti-masking campaign was “strength in numbers”, “sticking together” and the 981 members off the UnMask our children group is a reflection of that strength. Political Parties work the same way. Registered party numbers matter, just like that 981 members matter.
By contrast the Republican party sucks at recruitment. It sucks at getting the message out about conservatism, it’s political ideology that it embraces is suppressed at every turn. How does it get its message out? It certainly will not be on any liberal news media networks. On Fox News? Fox News is too busy trying to be “fair and balanced”, with talking heads lining up one after another. A program needs to be created that shows what conservatism really is. Perhaps they assume that everybody already knows but many people don’t. Many people do.
If you were a fan of Rush Limbaugh’s radio program over the decades you learned what conservatism is and is not. He verbally assailed liberal democrats for who they really are. With his death, much has been lost for the conservative movement.
As disgusted voters flee the Republican party to become independents or “no party” or one of the other many parties out there, it is the greatest gift anyone can give the Democrats because they are not bleeding party members and they can recruit more to cover the losses using nefarious means. The Democratic Party is for bigger government, more freebies to its voters, exacting control over you daily lives because they believe they can make better decisions for your best interests. If socialism takes hold it will be born out of the Democratic Party.
This is important to remember, THERE IS NO CONSERVATIVE WING INSIDE THE DEMOCRAT PARTY! BUT THERE IS A LIBERAL ELEMENT THAT HAS TAKEN ROOT AMONG REPUBLICANS.
Democrats are NOT Constitutionalists as it is written. They view it as a worn out document that needs a rewrite. Republicans are constitutionalists.
Conservatism is dying and the Republican Party is not stronger today than it was under Reagan, even though they try to portray it. It is much weaker, and growing weaker by the day. Many Republicans have yielded to compromise. The Republican Party has been infiltrated by a liberal element. Liberals are that nefarious.
Independents/No Party Candidates? – They have no party, no written platform outlining what they are about and they answer to nobody except to voters during the election. They are in the wind, which means they will bend from whichever the wind blows.
The School Board of this parish is a classic example of what you get from Independents. When you combine the independents with the Democrats all leaning toward liberal ideology that includes control over your decisions, they make up 85% of the Parish body.
Republicans which total 2, make up 15% of the body, so do not point to Republicans for blame. They only have a 15% share.
I see people throwing out commentary that shows their aggravated but yet they are registered Democrats or Independents. They are fighting against the very thing they are signed up to. They have been brainwashed by the liberal media that “party doesn’t matter”. But it does! It is one half of my vote. I am a registered Republican and a “partisan”. I never voted for a Democrat, but I have voted for no party independents.
As of the last election, after seeing the capitol riots portrayed as conservative Republicans instead of who they really were, “Bernie Sanders Supporters and Independents who jumped on the Trump train, I won’t be doing that anymore. After watching the school boards decision making as of late and seeing the majority is no party independents, I will no longer vote for any independent unless I am forced to in a runoff against a Democrat. There is no need for them to darken my door or looking to put a sign in my yard, until a runoff against a Democrat. I turn away Democrats without discussion.
I have voted for Republicans whose personalities I did not like and I have voted for Republicans that turned out to be liberals with loyalty to the Democrats but I never voted for them again. I will waste my vote on a Republican before I will waste it on a Democrat.
I will vote for a Catholic Republican but I will think long and hard and study closely before I vote for a Catholic Republican educated in a liberal Jesuit University. I’m funny like that!
Voting is not a popularity contest and your not voting like your in high school for most popular, studious or best dressed. Some people, sadly quite a few, approach it with that mindset. Its an easy fix, just don’t approach it like that. To the Evangelicals that did not like Trump’s tweets or his sinful ways…Keep this in mind. Christianity has been under assault since the early 1960’s and it is getting worse by the day. There is a dotted line between Christianity, Conservatism and the Republican party. There is NO DOTTED LINE from Christianity to anywhere else, except to those hellbent on the destruction using change of the very thing you cherish the most.
Sure give me the speech about how the church can never be destroyed. That is true but there is quite a bit of misery between where we are today and that end that is yet to unfold.
If you register Republican and take the partisan approach if your not happy with a Republican candidate file a complaint with the Republican Party both at the state level and the national level, and try to get them censured and strengthen the party. Leaving it only weakens it. If you want to protest, complain and hate the direction we are going but do not want to walk away from the Democrat party then just keep on fighting, protesting and complaining, your party will give you more than your fill to complain about. Learn to tell the difference between a real conservative Republican and a RINO (Republican in Name only). Also keep in mind there are NO DINO’s (Democrat in Name Only).
The Republican Party has been stuck in a perpetual state of compromise for decades. I don’t see this ending well.
If the Republican Party continues to weaken and Conservatism is lost, we are in for a world of hurt.
Join the Republican Party and become a “partisan”. Strengthen the party, then vote out the ones that do not adhere to constitutionalism and conservative ideals. Make the Democrat Party the minority party by a wide margin. Only then will things change.
