I have been receiving regular emails from both the RNC and from the GOPcomeback.com site, asking me for support. I filled out a change of affiliation form some time back dropping my affilliation and membership to the Republican party. In my never-to-be-humble opinion, they are not "republican" any more than I am the reincarnation of Mahatma Ghandi. So, I sent them the following letter on the 8th of June, 2009. Give me your thoughts as to how well I laid it out for them.
"The reason I canceled my subscription and party affiliation is that I do not believe in the GOP any longer. You give lip service to Conservative principles but in the end, the GOP acts just like the Dems. All this tripe about a bigger tent, for instance. This isn't the way that Reagan won landslides. Tell me one time in our nations history when there was a true budget cut. Tell me one Federal department that was ever eliminated because it was unnecessary (as many are). Show me the constitutional authority for the 80,000 pages of regulations created by non-representative beaurocrats that exists in the Federal Register. Beaurocrats that are not elected and therefore not subject to the will of the people.
The GOP continues to prop up R.I.N.O.s for election/re-election and you wish for me to join that cause? Explain this to me, please. The GOP has gone the way of the Whigg party. As such, true Conservatives should be jumping ship and reorganizing into a new Conservative party. Until that happens, until there is a viable alternative, I'll not be supporting anything with the Republican brand on it.
I want to hear ideas being put forward for true cuts in federal spending. Not reductions in the rate of increase.
I want to hear real ideas for securing our borders and the immediate deportation of illegal aliens.
I want to hear real ideas about the return to Constitutionally mandated governance. Restoration of the States' sovereignty and power.
I want to hear real ideas for the abolition of the Dept. of Education. It is, among many others, unconstitutional.
I want to hear real ideas for the abolition of the IRS and an adoption of either the "Fair Tax" or a flat tax that doesn't punish the job producers.
I want to hear a real idea for phasing out the Social Security and Medicare systems. These are unsupportable in their design and will bankrupt us in the end.
I want to hear someone shame the Global Climate Change monkeys into silence for bad science designed to destroy this nations standing.
I want to hear someone in the government stand up to Mr. Obama and his socialist agenda.
If no one in the GOP is willing to stand up for these principles. Then we have nothing to discuss at all. Our Founding Fathers would take up arms in protest at the way this, the land of the free, has been subjugated by its own government. There is nothing in their writings and discussions of the time that give any foundation for the travesty that has been wrought since the Wilson administration. Get your house in order then talk to me about a GOP comeback. If our government doesn't start taking us seriously, don't be surprised if the calls for extreme action by individual states doesn't raise even louder. This cannot continue. Our nation is paying the price even now. Prove you are on the People's side in this and you will gain support."
As of this posting, I still have not recieved a word in response. For giggles I think I will be sending this to the Rep. members of the House and Senate. I"ll follow up with the returns (if any).
