2016: A Reagan Conservative Wins!

Everyone on the Republican side seems to be pointing fingers at each other, in the wake of Mitt Romney’s loss on November 6th.

According to the GOP Establishment, who has been responsible for pushing through the nominations of our last two candidates, both Establishment Republicans, who were Moderate, at best, the candidates failed because they did not espouse the same ideals as the Democratic Party.

You know, like being pro-abortion, (It’s a baby, not a choice.) being pro-Gay Marriage, ( I now pronounce you man…and…err..ahhh…aww, forget it.) being pro-amnesty, (I don’t care if you buy their votes, boys. They’re still going to vote Democratic.) and minimize (eliminate) “SoCons’ ” (Reagan Conservatives’) role in the Party.  (Yeah. That worked so well this time, didn’t it?)

Now, I swallowed hard on November 6th and voted for the creator of RomneyCare, Mitt Romney, the Godfather of Obamacare, because he seems to be a good man, and the rear end of Caligula’s Horse would be better than the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

However, before we get closer to 2016. I have a novel idea: Let’s nominate a Reagan Conservative!

As shown in 2010, the Conservative Base is still alive and well, and will turn out to vote, if the candidate shares their values system.

Americans want somebody who does not question whether the Constitution is relevant or not.

Americans want a candidate who cares more about America’s safety than about negotiating with those who want to murder us, or about placating the United Nations.

They want a candidate who actually gives a hoot ‘n holler that 20% of Americans are unemployed or have just given up…someone who cares that 20% of our nation has to rely on the Federal Government to feed their families.

Americans want a candidate who is not ashamed to lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance…including the words One Nation UNDER GODIndivisible.

They want a candidate who loves and honors, as much as we do, our fighting men and women, who make our freedom possible.

Americans want a candidate who will fight for the rights of every American…including the unborn.

And, they want a candidate who will stand toe-to-toe with his/her opponent, and fight…for them.

In fact, Americans want someone who can speak like this:

I don’t believe the people I’ve met in almost every State of this Union are ready to consign this, the last island of freedom, to the dust bin of history, along with the bones of dead civilizations of the past. Call it mysticism, if you will, but I believe God had a divine purpose in placing this land between the two great oceans to be found by those who had a special love of freedom and the courage to leave the countries of their birth. From our forefathers to our modern-day immigrants, we’ve come from every corner of the earth, from every race and every ethnic background, and we’ve become a new breed in the world. We’re Americans and we have a rendezvous with destiny. We spread across this land, building farms and towns and cities, and we did it without any federal land planning program or urban renewal.

Indeed, we gave birth to an entirely new concept in man’s relation to man. We created government as our servant, beholden to us and possessing no powers except those voluntarily granted to it by us. Now a self-anointed elite in our nation’s capital would have us believe we are incapable of guiding our own destiny. They practice government by mystery, telling us it’s too complex for our understanding. Believing this, they assume we might panic if we were to be told the truth about our problems.

Why should we become frightened? No people who have ever lived on this earth have fought harder, paid a higher price for freedom, or done more to advance the dignity of man than the living Americans the Americans living in this land today. There isn’t any problem we can’t solve if government will give us the facts. Tell us what needs to be done. Then, get out of the way and let us have at it.

And like this…

If I could just take a moment- I had an assignment the other day. Someone asked me to write a letter for a time capsule that is going to be opened in Los Angeles a hundred years from now, on our Tricentennial. It sounded like an easy assignment; they suggested I write something about the problems and issues of the day, and I set out to do so, riding down the coast in an automobile, looking at the blue Pacific out on one side and the Santa Ynez Mountains on the other, and I couldn’t help but wonder if it was going to be that beautiful a hundred years from now, as it was on that summer day. And then, as I tried to write, let your own minds turn to that task. You’re going to write for people a hundred years from now, who know all about us; we know nothing about them, we don’t know what kind of a world they’ll be living in. And suddenly I thought to myself, if I write of the problems, they’ll be the domestic problems, which the president spoke here tonight, the challenges confronting us, the erosion of freedom that has taken place under Democrat rule in this country. The invasion of private rights. The controls and restrictions on the vitality of the great free economy that we enjoy. These are our challenges that we must meet. And then again there is that challenge, which he spoke, that we live in a world in which the great powers have poised and aimed at each other horrible missiles of destruction, nuclear weapons that can in a matter of minutes arrive in each other’s country and destroy virtually the civilized world we live in.

And suddenly it dawned on me: Those who would read this letter a hundred years from now will know whether those missiles were fired. They will know whether we met our challenge. Whether they have the freedom that we have known up until now, will depend on what we do here. Will they look back in appreciation and say thank God, for those people in 1976 who headed off that loss of freedom, who kept us now a hundred years later free, who kept our world from nuclear destruction, and if we fail, they probably won’t get to read the letter at all because it spoke of individual freedom and they won’t be allowed to talk of that or read of it.

This is our challenge. And this is why here in this hall tonight, better than we’ve ever done before, we’ve gotta quit talking to each other and about each other and go out and communicate to the world, that we may be fewer in numbers than we’ve ever been, but we carry the message they’re waiting for. We must go forth from here united, determined, and what a great general said a few years ago is true: There is no substitute for victory. Mr. President” (applause, cheering) …

 Indeed.

Or, the Republican Party could nominate a Moderate again…and practice the definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over again hoping that it will turn out different this time.

…Let’s not…and say we did.

Until He comes,

KJ

  1. I agree, we need to nominate the right person. But make no mistake, there will be a war in the party that we will have to win this time if that is to happen. We will have to purge the Coulters, Kirstols and Roves of the party and it will be bloody. I keep hearing people say that we need to adopt the words of Rodney King and “all just get along”. I say bull hockey!!!! We have to purge the losers from our process that continually push bad candidates upon us that cannot articulate the liberty and free market message (mostly because they don’t believe in it themselves).

    The sooner we realize this and sharpen our spears for that battle, the sooner we can prepare for 2016.
