American Political Orphan - Beginnings


I have been a Republican all of my life. I have watched the Republican Party over the past few years lose its way.  The concept of smaller government, less spending and lower taxes is a distant memory.

Where have the conservative politicians disappeared to?  I can barely list Republican politicians who are true conservatives. Every election cycle it seems to be a choice of the lesser of two evils.

I have had a longtime belief that the Democrats, if left in power long enough, will destroy the Nation. Unfortunately if the Republicans continue to abandon their once conservative values they will destroy the Nation as well. It will just take them a little bit longer.

President George Bush was amazing in his response to 9/11 and he did what I would expect any President to do. Also, his policy on lower taxes was a great idea. It undoubtedly strengthened the economic outlook of America. But! And there is a big but here, the rest of his domestic policies have brought more big government and bigger spending than any other president in my lifetime.

But wait!
There’s more.

NOW, comes Barack Obama who has outdone Bush’s record and has spent more that all US Presidents combined. A path that is unsustainable. Plus the Democrats have not passed a budget in 4 years even though a yearly budget is a Constitutional requirement.

I feel that the current crop of politicians in Washington DC have abandoned the American people. Representative governance has given way to a government dictated to the people from Washington DC. Somehow in the rarefied air inside the beltway they know what?s best for America. At least, that?s what it looks like from here. With the non-producers exceeding the producers in the 2012 election cycle a permanent voting block has been created by citizens that have learned how to vote for largess from the US Treasury. This usually results in the collapse of every nation where this has occurred. America is on the brink of disaster.

What happened to the Republican Party?

What happened to my America? 

Where is the America that I grew up in? I can barely recognize it. I feel like I am an American political orphan.

Editors note, after the fraudulent 2012 election I deleted all the posts back to 2007 and have started over. The Black and White theme will continue until Democrats are defeated and Republicans gain a backbone. I don’t hold out much hope for this to happen any where in the foreseeable future.
