Our country was more successful, and a better place to live when we had two political parties which both offered ideas for the betterment of the United States. For approximately 16 years America has witnessed bickering parties, attempting to sway voters and win power and control. The GOP has been in turmoil. It is no longer a single party, having been divided by the TEA Party. The result has been a failed government, unable and unwilling to do its job. The ‘real’ GOP must take control of the Republican Party and once again represent all of the American people.

No state should be defined as a ‘red’ or ‘blue’ state. If the Electoral College did not exist, the separation of states by majority political affiliation would be nonexistent. No American should be defined as a conservative or progressive based on their physical residence.

Much of the division which exists in America is the direct result of hate groups. Misogynists, Homophobes, religious extremists, and racists all want to eliminate the advance of civilization. They live in the past, and ignore change. With every new generation comes a new understanding of where we must go as a nation. This new group of Americans has no memory of the past and the evils perpetrated on many for reasons of unwarranted hatred.

The hate group with the greatest longevity in America is the Ku Klux Klan. An investigation of their activities confirms that they continue to influence elections in the South. As recent as 2000, Republican presidential candidate George W. Bush benefited from KKK efforts and with the assistance of the Supreme Court, became the 43rd President of the United States.

After President Obama won reelection in 2012, Republican Party leadership acknowledged the fact that they must appeal to groups they ignored in the past. Rhetoric is often hot air, and actions in the last two years prove that they will continue with their same old policies.

In April potential presidential candidates spoke at a Conservative rally in New Hampshire. TEA Party darlings Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, and Senator Ted Cruz of Texas offered different viewpoints regarding the direction of the Republican Party. Although neither man is favored by Republican voters in a recent poll, they will both be in the mix as candidates for the GOP nomination.Republicans

In Cruz style, his comments were all about ‘growth and opportunity.’ His tactic seems week if we honestly evaluate the American economy and what it has become in the past six years after the President inherited the worst economic situation in modern history. This week the stock market hit another record at 18,000, and some investors believe it will reach 20,000 in 2015. Cruz is a ‘trickle-down’ proponent of a free market economy; giving tax breaks to large corporations and a false dream that jobs will be created by them.

Paul is more realistic; at least he talks that way. He insisted that the Republican Party must reach out to blacks, Hispanics, and the youth of our nation. He said we must show concern for the unemployed and impoverished. And he stated that the voting public must cease to believe that Republicans represent the wealthiest of Americans.

He made no mention of women’s rights, and ignored subjects such as health care and voting rights.

Paul has assembled several political and campaign giants to help him obtain his party’s nomination. He expounds many of the right things, but does he truly believe in the words he speaks? At the moment, he is the only conservative candidate who includes all Americans in his platform.

Independent voters are growing in numbers, and are likely to decide the 2016 election results. Will Paul convince them that he is a Republican of the past and has renounced the extremist views of many in his party, and those of the TEA Party? Time will tell.

  1. First off, you are a liberal moron who needs to do some serious fact checking… Here in the real world and not in liberal lalaland, Second, the GOP absolutely doesn’t not need to represent you and/or people like you. That’s what happens when you lose elections… The people disagree with you and your nonsense ideas and vote for the people whose ideas best resonates with their own. And lastly, the “TEA Party” is a collection of everyday Americans who simply wants their government to adhere to their founding documents. To say you are against the TEA Party is to say you are against our Constitution. How any reputable news site lets you post this utter nonsense is beyond my ability to reason. Good day.

    • I agree with you Steve! This moron journalist needs to do some real fact research before opening that ignorant mouth! And yes we the people disagree with all this nonsense I just read.I simply cannot fathim how someone can be so dedelusional and ignorant! Everything in this article is basically saying that he disagrees with the constitution and our rights as Americans! Such nonsense and unfounded false truths I’ve ever heard in all my days. This journalist is either mental or on serious drugs, or both!

  2. IGNORE THE PEOPLE AT YOUR OWN PERIL.

    These senators are turn coats, who do the bidding of ‘K” street, the million dollar lobbyists once they are instructed what to do. The $1.1 Trillion dollar spending spree concocted by the Democrats under machinations of King Obama is so full of pork, you could choke on it. There is little in this massive piece of legislation, but plenty for the big business $$$. These powerful senators should be made to pay dearly, because with this corrupt system of government is carefully plotted to fill the pockets of the wealthy contributors. Don’t let them fool you, BIG CORPORATE GIVERS run each administration.

    ONLY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CAN CHANGE THE VOTING SYSTEM, TO MAKE THINGS FAIR AND EQUITABLE FOR ALL AMERICANS. UNTIL THE INCEPTION OF THE INTERNET THE VOTERS KNEW LITTLE OF THE GOINGS ON INSIDE CONGRESS, AND STILL DON’T TO SOME DEGREE? BUT HONEST POLITICIANS AS SEN. SESSIONS OF ALABAMA, SEN TED CRUZ OF TEXAS AMONGST THE MODERATE CONSERVATIVES ARE THERE FOR OUR NATION. DEMOCRAT HARRY REID OF NEVADA WOULD NOT CONSIGN ONE PIECE OF LEGISLATIVE BILL, TO PASS FROM HIS DESK TO BE VOTED ON.

    THE AMERICAN VOTERS IN A THUNDEROUS ELECTION WIN, SPOKE CLEARLY AGAINST ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION; A NEED TO CONSTRUCT A REAL US/MEXICAN FENCING FROM EAST TO WEST; INTERIOR ENFORCEMENT AND TO STEM IMPERIAL OBAMAS ILLEGAL LAWS.

    Each of these Senators should hit the road, when they come up for reelection as they are truly backstabbers. Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas), Senator Michael Enzi (R-Wyo.), Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine), Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.), Senator Daniel Coats (R-Ind.), Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.), Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), voted to fund President Obama’s executive amnesty during the lame-duck session contrary to his earlier statements. He was one of several Senators who had come out against the president’s actions, but then voted much differently. Other Republican Senators were at least honest and never lied that they would vote for this Socialist-Communist agenda of the imperial Obama clan.

    These Senators had an opportunity to back up their idiom with action when Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) raised a “point of order” challenging the constitutionality of the president’s executive action while the Senate debated the 2015 spending bill.

    While 21 other Senators stood up and voted with Senator Cruz, 28 Senators who had previously come out against executive amnesty voted in favor of fully funding it.

    Are these Senators that you voted for in your state? They all voted for fully funding the 5 million illegal aliens, who will be able to compete for the 92 million of jobless and part time American workers. These are the Senators who are letting King Obama to issue, work permits, social security cards, Drivers Licenses, EBT cards (food Stamps) and access to the affordable Care Act (Obamacare). These are the Senators who are destroying the American dream, so they can gain favor from the special interests who pay for their supposedly working/vacation trips for the lawmaker and his family and brown paper money under the table from rich donors, the cronyism and friends.
    KEEP THEM IN YOUR MEMORY TO THROW THEM OUT OF OFFICE.

    We have been blatantly lied to since the pledge of enforcing immigration laws since 1986. We have no control over the Southern border barrier fence. Inside America ICE has limited enforcement to arrest employers who hire illegal aliens. Consequently since then we have uninterrupted million scaling what fence is in existence or the 46 percent who arrive here as tourists and never leave. All this has to be paid for by the middle class; not the ‘Freeloaders’ who don’t work who have become parasites of the host taxpayer. We are the illiterate fools that don’t know what goes on behind closed doors in Congress. We have little knowledge of the privileged few (NOT THE TEA PARTY) who are the proverbial puppets of big business. Tell me why if it’s illegal to enter the territorial sovereignty of the United States, when it’s not classed as a FELONY?

    IT’S ALWAYS BEEN A HUSHED-UP CONSPIRACY TO BRING IN CHEAP LABOR FOR THE GOP or VOTES FOR THE LEFTISTS.

    These SENATORIAL men and women stood with their hand on the bible, pledging allegiance to protect the US citizens and lawful residence from enemies domestic and foreign. These are the political parties, except that the Republicans PROMISED to block His Royal Highnesses illegal executive order whether signed by him or written as a memo. At least the Democrats are honest in the fact that they voted to give a free pass to criminal aliens, who broke the law. Whereas, the lying, corrupt senator Republican elites misled the people that they would fight and instead voted for the amnesty, voted for the eventual trillions of dollars it would cost the middle class. Every day the states and federal funds are drained by foreigners through failing to adhere to the policies found in the federal Registry.

    • I couldn’t agree more! Well said. I don’t know you but you should run for office! Seriously everything you said made more sense than anything I’ve heard in a long time! You should enter politics, this country needs more blunt honesty and less bullsh$#. Thank you sir your a very intelligent person. God bless you and yours.
