Third-party candidates assure a Democrat majority in government at every level – destiny of disaster. In the years leading up to our great Civil War, liberty-minded Democrats worked to reform the party to no avail. Consequently, a new party, the Free Soil Party, came to life. This breakaway group of conservatives later became known as the Republican Party.
While it is still impossible to reform the Democrats, it is totally possible to reform the Republican Party. How does one go about reforming the GOP?
As the late Thomas P. “Tip” O’Neil famously said, “All politics is local.” If you have no influence in your city, your county, why would you expect to have influence in Washington, D.C.?
I know, I know. Thousands of you write your U.S. Senators and your Representatives – keep it up. But, do you even know the location of your local GOP headquarters? What about the Republican clubs: Men’s, Women’s and Young Republican’s?
Do you vote? And, I mean in ALL elections? Really? … Really? I don’t think so. In fact, I know you don’t all vote in every election. I see records from our local Elections Office – all a matter of public record.
Choices are simple: continue to be ignorant of issues and uninvolved in your community and you will reap the consequences. Or, you can get away from your televisions, video games and favorite sports activities to invest some of your life, your time, in becoming connected with community leadership.
Liberals, communists, socialists and all manner of radical persons have taken up residence in our federal government and many state governments.
Texas has the most Fortune 500 companies of all these 50 states. We have no income tax and the legislature and Gov. Perry passed tort reform that contributes to a healthy business climate.
However, we are not insulated from, nor immune to, economic “bubbles” that have popped in 41 other states. Highly respected economist, the late (2006) Milton Friedman, predicted our present fiscal circumstances: Massive deficits, countries no longer buying our treasury bills (our debt), dramatic increase in the money supply – all leading to massive inflation. Milton predicted that our government would say inflation is no problem at all.
