Conservatism in the 113th Congress: Views from the Republican Study Committee chairman and chairman-elect - Politics and Public Opinion - AEI
This might sound way too optimistic and again keep in mind I'm a Liberal Democrat so it would be in my political. Best interest as well as the Democratic party's for the Republican party to continue down this Statist Neoconservative. Direction and continue to kiss off Americans as being potential Republicans, because they don't share their 1950s worldview. And may look or sound different, have different looks on life and have different religious views and happen to be tolerant of others. And for the GOP ton continue to drive towards what I call the political cliff, because the GOP won't be successful in the future. With the base they have today, they are simply going to have to modernize and diversify but as an American who. Loves politics and loves America more, I don't want to see the Republican disappear or at least see this country. Without a strong Conservative party, Liberal Democracy is simply about choice, thats what a lot of its based on and with a one party country. We would become Un Liberal Democratic.
So I would hope that these so called "Conservative Republicans", the jury is still out on how the Conservative. Or Republican even they are but I would hope these people who want to be Conservative Republicans, would go back to the future. And figure out what made American Conservatism popular and successful in the 1960s, because it was about getting government. Out of the way so Americans could live their own lives, getting Big Government out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms. As Barry Goldwater so famously said, that Ron Reagan and Bill Buckley both believed in, not trying to tell Americans how. To live their lives which is what the post GOP Tea Party movement has been about or growing the. Federal Government . And the power of Uncle Sam which is what the George W. Bush Federal Government was. About but getting Big Government out of our wallets and bedrooms.
The GOP needs more Barry Goldwater's and Ron Reagan's, they should be talking to Barry Jr and Ron Jr and Mike Reagan. And bring in the Ron Paul Libertarians and perhaps not say goodbye to the Theocrats in the party that wants Big Government. In our lives but no longer let them control the party and talk to people who are actually Conservative as well as Republican. And not Statist or Theocratic and the GOP will be successful in the future.
