What the Republican Party must do now, 2009
(Posted on AmericanCivility.us and Townhall)


After last year’s impressive win by Barack Obama, I wrote an article, “What the Republican Party must do now” in which I proffered the notion that it must return to conservative principles, in a principled manner.

Yesterday’s results are meaningful for two reasons, but not because Republicans won two state gubernatorial elections. We still don’t know what Chris Christie believes and what he will do. Rather, the results show that voters a) quickly tire with the false promise of omnipotent and benevolent government, no matter how they are temporarily seduced into trading their freedom for illusory protection; b) seek a return to wholesome family values, as demonstrated by Maine’s vote to overturn gay marriage laws. 60% of States now have rejected such unholy unions.

“Conservatism is too important to be left to the Republican Party”, says Dick Morris. Unless a putative conservative party can recreate 50 state recruiting and funding machines, the Party is conservatives’ only hope.

One day after the swearing in ceremonies in New Jersey and Virginia the distinction between the two parties will blur again into torpor unless the GOP ceases this new opportunity.

Now is the time to sharpen differences and shore up the foundation of liberty and capitalism. Now is the time to become an incandescent beacon for the majority of Americans who seek refuge from cultural decadence and government enforced dissolution of the inalienable relationship between man and his Creator. Now is the time to be stalwart in demanding of those we elect the highest standards of ethics and behavior expected of humble representatives and employees of the people.

In the prior article, I outlined nine policy recommendations derived from core conservative principles. Here are post 2009 pre-2010 election refinements:

1. Smaller government: total public debt is rapidly approaching 100% of GDP, putting us in the class with banana republics. This is the basis of an argument that is not only financial, but one that must be expostulated for the preservation of liberty; for individual freedom is inversely proportional to the size of government.
2. An end to taxation of capital and the burdening of its productive use; otherwise we will surely have less of both. There is, too, a seething discontent with incremental taxation at local and state levels on every sort of daily life from property taxes to usage fees on electricity, heat, telephone, and television, to surcharges on mass transportation, small business, and freelance work. To become a party with nationwide appeal, national conservative voices must be raised against local threats to freedom.
3. Fastidious respect for our Constitution and the beliefs on which it is written. We might start with limiting the power of the Executive by recalling all “czars” until they are confirmed by the Senate.
4. Free trade and fair trade: it is time to impose strict product quality compliance on Chinese imports, to give most favored nation status only to countries who agree to float their currency against the dollar, and to make the United States’ tax and regulation codes business-friendly to attract investment.
5. A stable and predictable monetary system. The Fed’s power should be clipped such that it can only protect against inflation or depression. It should not be given regulatory responsibility as it does not report to any branch of government. And permitting it to chase interest rates is giving too much power to too few.
6. Minimalist government intervention in the economy: an end to the “too-big-to-fail” fallacy, a repudiation of TARP and economic “stimulus”, and government’s divestiture of all private enterprise including AIG, GM, bank warrants, and Freddie and Fannie.
7. A strong national defense—and that must, now more than ever, start at the borders of the United States.
8. A respect for all life. As President Reagan said, “Abortion is either the taking of a human life or it isn't. And if it is—and medical technology is increasingly showing it is—it must be stopped.”
9. Zero tolerance for abuse of power. It is time, again, to revisit term limits, or at least to end all corporate lobbying and campaign contributions—sources of fraud and corruption. Corporations are not people and should not be afforded the rights of an individual citizen.

This is the time for audacity, for courage, and clarity. This is no time for diffidence, for moderation, nor ambiguity.

The ultimate reason for the current economic downturn was explained to me as being that the 95% of the US companies are not competitive and are in the red.

IF this is so, then why are we not trying to be more competitive? WE could start by kicking the Mexicans and the Chinese out of our educational institutions.

I think Doug Hoffman is a HERO for taking time out of his busy life and fighting the establishment. He did well and I hope other CONSERVATIVES follow his lead.

I was tempted to not vote yesterday, but when I saw 2 Democrats I despise running for City Council, I KNEW I had to VOTE. NO ONE was running against them and I couldn't write someone in so I left their name blank.

I applaud Doug Hoffman and all the other people who got themselves on the ballot because they wanted TRUE CHANGE.

I agree on this one, M/M. I really thought that he'd win too. He sounded great when I heard him on the radio. Very dry and matter-of-fact.

Like he actually knew what he was talking about.

A trait that is absolutely the rarest in our brain-dead elected whores.

Hoffman didn't sound like he was reading off a prompter either.

Hint hint..

If I need charisma I'll watch a movie. What I need from politicians is HONESTY and PATRIOTISM.

COURAGE to stand up for one's convictions would also do it for me. Even if that means you will no longer be invited to the "right parties"

Hell, they should know we're not sending them there to party but to WORK for US.

Actually if we can elect a bunch of get-up-early-and-get-things-done people into Congress and the Senate they could start running circles around all those DemonRats recovering from their various hangovers.

Thanks for the heads up. I must have been too focused on explaining "projection of whining" in a way that even the trolling perp might understand.

By jove, you're on to something! While Comrade PeeWee is gaily pedaling past all those Castro grave sites on his bicicleta, the progs are forced to use an entry level cyberstalker for monicamemo duty. That could be it.

Funny, PW is obviously an educated idiot. His replacement clearly has a lot of work and study to do before reaching even that level. Maybe the home office sees potential in him, i.e. something we're not able to detect? He can cut and paste. Maybe PeeWee can tutor him on the art of seeming to understand and defend what he's pasting.

Since you have an intellect which is second to a fern, I'll repeat:

When you continuously demonstrate the complete and utter incapability of defining simple words like fear, why would a sentient being pay heed to a single syllable you utter?

You claim that I have fear:

FEAR:

noun

1. a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; the feeling or condition of being afraid.
2. a specific instance of or propensity for such a feeling: an abnormal fear of heights.
3. concern or anxiety; solicitude: a fear for someone's safety.
4. reverential awe, esp. toward God.
5. that which causes a feeling of being afraid; that of which a person is afraid: Cancer is a common fear.

–verb (used with object)

6. to regard with fear; be afraid of.
7. to have reverential awe of.
8. Archaic. to experience fear in (oneself).

–verb (used without object)

9. to have fear; be afraid.

Whereas, in reality, I have this:

DISDAIN:

verb (used with object)

1. to look upon or treat with contempt; despise; scorn.
2. to think unworthy of notice, response, etc.; consider beneath oneself: to disdain replying to an insult.

–noun

3. a feeling of contempt for anything regarded as unworthy; haughty contempt; scorn.

Especially for you, poser.

Well, I don't know that a judge should be allowed to choose the races of the people he marries, as long as one is a female and the other one is a male, but from my experience..

I have dated more than a few black women and the racism I encountered as a result was almost exclusively from black men.

But hey, let not your hearts be troubled, dear libs.. just don't date any black women so you never have to find out the ugly truth.

Mondo Gay disagrees, Ummah. In fact it deliberately uses inter-racial marriage to defend its demand for same-sex "marriage." Since the Yankee troll specializes in mind reading (as when he explained why I posted a certain post), why not return the favor?

Why is he posting about inter-racial marriage? Is it because he's a noble humanitarian? Or is it because he sees this as a wedge issue for what really and truly interests him: same-sex marriage?

By the way, as an example of my own compassion,I would have no objection to the Yankee troll and the Twin Towers troll getting married in Canada, even joining the Mounties together, especially if they agreed to stay up there and surrender their citizenship in the "imperialist war-mongering" USA.

Would you mind if they did?

Less Is Not More
Reducing care just reduces care, not costs.

Although it is cheaper to buy a pint of milk than to buy a quart of milk, nobody considers that to be lowering the price of milk. Although it is cheaper to buy a lower quality of all sorts of goods than to buy a higher quality, nobody thinks of that as lowering the price of either lower or higher quality goods.

Yet, when it comes to medical care, there seems to be remarkably little attention paid to questions of both quantity and quality in the rush to “bring down the cost of medical care.”

There is no question that you can reduce the payments for medical care by having either a lower quantity or a lower quality of medical care. That has already been done in countries with government-run medical systems.

In the United States, the government has already reduced payments for patients on Medicare and Medicaid, with the result that some doctors no longer accept new patients with Medicare or Medicaid. That has not reduced the cost of medical care. It has reduced the availability of medical care, just as buying a pint of milk reduces the payment below what a quart of milk would cost.

"This seems like a good moment to argue for limited government." - MJFell

----

Limited government ONLY works in a society where corporations and multi-nationals govern themselves with due restraint and with ethics. As they haven't for at least a century, what you eventually and inevitably get with limited government is a fascist government, controlled by corporations (as Mussolini himself described), FAR more easy to control with political contributions than a larger government.

Someone has to make sure corporations act in the public interest FIRST, and then their bottom lines SECOND. And barring revolution, that's GOVERNMENT.

And that's what people want. Change from the unbridled rapist capitalism of the Reagan and Bush, and to a lesser extent, the Clinton years.

They've seen what happens when government is in collusion with big business, whether it be big offense, big pharma, big insura, big tobacco, big banking, or any other poisonous predatory corporate machine, and they've had enough.

And they see right through the GOP's prostitution for those very "special" of "special interests."

And it is ultimately hypocritical, for the GOP, who squandered trillions in unwinable asymmetric war in the Mideast pissed away to Big Offense Contracting, to argue that providing health care for all legal Americans is going to bankrupt us.

The US was bankrupt the day we sent troops to the Mideast. Morally AND economically. And Obama letting Wall Street and the foreign bank "Federal" Reserve run the economic "recovery" is like asking Capone to guard the bank.

Microbrain exposes his undeniable "progressive" leanings in full bloom.

On the day President Bush took office, the national debt stood at $5.727 trillion. The latest number from the Treasury Department shows the national debt now stands at more than $9.849 trillion. That’s a 71.9 percent increase on Mr. Bush’s watch.

Mr. Obama's $3.6 trillion budget blueprint, by his own admission, redefines the role of government in our economy and society. The budget more than doubles the national debt held by the public, adding more to the debt than all previous presidents -- from George Washington to George W. Bush -- combined. It reduces defense spending to a level not sustained since the dangerous days before World War II, while increasing nondefense spending (relative to GDP) to the highest level in U.S. history. And it would raise taxes to historically high levels (again, relative to GDP). And all of this before addressing the impending explosion in Social Security and Medicare costs.

Yep, jumping from the frying pan into the fire is certainly the answer. (sarcasm off)

It is now official the current government are corrupt morons:

The U.S. Post Service was established in 1775 You have had 234 years to get it right and it is broke.

Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it right and it is broke.

Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right and it is broke.

The War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor" and they only want more...

Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965.. You have had 44 years to get it right and they are broke.

Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right and it is broke.

The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure.

You have FAILED in every "government service" you have shoved down our throats while overspending our tax dollars.

Do you trust House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to do what’s best for YOU on health care?

In the House of Representatives, Speaker Pelosi is fast tracking her 1,990-page government-run health care plan and hoping to bring it to the floor for a vote as soon as this week. Concerned citizens are desperate to understand how this monstrosity of an overhaul will impact them and their families.

But don’t look to the Leftist media for answers.

They have made little to no effort to explain key elements of the proposed government health care takeover.

Instead, they have focused their efforts on attacking anyone that dares to question the wisdom of this TRILLION dollar experiment that will result in higher premiums, higher taxes, massive Medicare cuts, and more government control over personal health care decisions.

Here are just a few of the things in Nancy Pelosi’s 1,990-page bill that the media are hiding from us:

$729.5 billion in new taxes on small businesses, individuals who cannot afford health coverage, and employers who cannot afford to provide coverage that meets Washington bureaucrats’ standards …

$1.1 trillion in new federal spending according to the Congressional Budget Office …

$150 million in cuts to the Medicare Advantage program …

111 additional offices, bureaus, commissions, programs, and bureaucracies ...

A study by the non-partisan Lewin Group indicating 114 million people could lose their current coverage and be forced into the government-run plan …

… and like all the previous bills, Pelosi’s bill still allows for federal funding of abortion!

But there is one place you can turn to for the truth—the whole disturbing truth.

Since the beginning of the health care debate, the Media Research Center has been an unwavering source of truth—uncovering, analyzing and delivering the details that simply aren’t being reported. Our ObamaCareTruth.org site provides the latest information that is being ignored by a Leftist media that are doing the bidding of Obama, Pelosi, and Reid.

Now with a vote fast approaching, it’s vital that we demand the media step up and TELL THE TRUTH to the millions of citizens who are being deceived and who stand to be hurt the worst by this health care takeover.

Demand the Media Tell the Truth About ObamaCare!

The keyword here is blackwhite. Like so many Newspeak words, this word has two mutually contradictory meanings. Applied to an opponent, it means the habit of impudently claiming that black is white, in contradiction of the plain facts. Applied to a Party member, it means a loyal willingness to say that black is white when Party discipline demands this. But it means also the ability to believe that black is white, and more, to know that black is white, and to forget that one has ever believed the contrary. This demands a continuous alteration of the past, made possible by the system of thought which really embraces all the rest, and which is known in Newspeak as doublethink. Doublethink is basically the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one's mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.

Ministry of Peace (Newspeak: Minipax)
Minipax reports Oceania's perpetual war.

The primary aim of modern warfare (in accordance with the principles of doublethink, this aim is simultaneously recognized and not recognized by the directing brains of the Inner Party) is to use up the products of the machine without raising the general standard of living. Ever since the end of the nineteenth century, the problem of what to do with the surplus of consumption goods has been latent in industrial society. At present, when few human beings even have enough to eat, this problem is obviously not urgent, and it might not have become so, even if no artificial processes of destruction had been at work.

Ministry of Plenty (Newspeak: Miniplenty)
Rations and controls food, goods, and domestic production; every fiscal quarter, the Miniplenty publishes false claims of having raised the standard of living, when it has, in fact, reduced rations, availability, and production. The Minitrue substantiates the Minplenty claims by revising historical records to report numbers supporting the current, "increased rations".

Ministry of Truth (Newspeak: Minitrue)
Controls information: news, entertainment, education, and the arts. Winston Smith works in the Minitrue RecDep (Records Department), "rectifying" historical records to concord with Big Brother's current pronouncements, thus everything the Party says is true.

Ministry of Love (Newspeak: Miniluv)
The Miniluv identifies, monitors, arrests, and converts, real and imagined dissidents; in Winston's experience, the dissident is beaten and tortured, then sent to Room 101, when he or she is near-broken, to face "the worst thing in the world" — until love for Big Brother and the Party replaces dissension.

"ur not welcome in any way shape of form?" - Ummah


I could well ask YOU why YOU keep hanging around the human race where you're not welcome in any way, shape, or form.

Bottom line, I am succeeding exactly where you and your warmongering call to Zionist jihad are failing. Miserably.
