A Plea to the Republican Party

First, I want to make it clear that I am not a die-hard Republican. I try to avoid being categorized, but for the sake of summarizing my political worldview, I probably fall somewhere in the libertarian/conservative categories on most issues. So, in spite of my feelings that the current two-party system has become counter-productive, I tend to favor the GOP.

I disagree with conservatives who take a “head in the ground” approach (which I’m afraid to say, many do); that is to say, those who are conservative out of a fear of change. The “radical righters” are even worse – although I may share some of their opinions, they scare me. I disagree more with those liberals who tend to be so open minded that their critical thinking skills have been lost. I disagree alot with those liberals who actually know why they are liberal, as those folks are also quite scary. I refer to them as the Great Liberal Conspiracy. You know who you are.

Now, not that anyone of importance will read this post (my 11 readers are not political movers and shakers), but I just have a couple of things to say to the Republican party:

  1. You’re supposed to be the conservative party
  2. That means you’re supposed to belive in a small Federal Government
  3. That also means you believe in spending less

So, can you people take a couple of steps back, look at what you’ve been doing, and just knock it off??

That’s all I have to say about that.
