My opinion about the Republican Party


I am starting to read postings and articles about why the Republican Party lost this election with an emphasis that they need to rid the party of Rinos.  I wish the answer was as simple as that, but I think the problem is that a lot of people support the Rinos because they do not see themselves as right wing republicans.  I feel like the right wing republicans are using this as a way to take control of the party rather than embracing people and showing them that the Republican Party is the party of the people. 

 

I was raised in the south where I voted for democrats in local elections and republicans for President.  I considered myself a democrat mainly because the Republican Party was nonexistent in the south.  Now, I have a choice and I see the Republican Party as being closer to what I value.  However, there are parts of this party that I do not agree with.  I had a realization that it seems like the Democrat Party wants to control people monetarily and the Republican Party wants to control people on social issues.  I think that the Republican Party needs to go back to individual rights and forget about a lot of the social issues that really seem to take away individual rights.  We may not agree with them, but I think those issues are what forces people to call themselves as moderate.  In addition, people will decide to vote for the Libertarian Party because they are similar to the Republican Party except they are for even less government. 

 

While I wonder why so many Republicans lost in the Congress, I think it comes down to the party being blamed for the troubles and voters not realizing that Democrats have been running the show for the past 2 years.  In regards to the Presidential election, I don’t think the Republican Party lost because of anything they did, I think the lost because of Chicago politics.  (As a side note, I heard when I was growing up that Kennedy only won Illinois because of Chicago politics.  I guess some things don’t change.)  Okay, maybe I will say that the Republicans lost because they didn’t fight Chicago politics.  You know the billion that Obama spent, the press not looking into Obama’s past, the campaign forcing stations to not run stories or ads, and the hiding of those whose beliefs would have turned off voters. 

 

I think rather than feeling like the Republican Party needs to change, I think they need to figure out how to really educate the public about what they really stand for.

    Nothing lasts forever. When a political party is no longer relevant and is out of step with what exists in the present and insists on re-living the no longer existing past, …that political party is destined to be viewed as a dead man walking.
    The Republican party is rapidly becoming a thing of the past, it is out of touch with 21st century america and consequently has become an obstical in america’s progress toward a progressive and enlightened future. Under the Bush years the republicans were a thorn in the side of the entire world, and the world reacted with a sigh of relief, and hope for the future when the republicans were defeated in their attempt to hold on to the reins of power.
    The political center is in the process of shifting away from all what existed in our no longer relevant past and is moving toward a more relevant present by adopting measures that favor the general public and are opposing measures that tend to favor the special interests of the rich and mighty.
    It is my opinion that the Obama administration and the democratic party will attempt to compromise with much of what occured in the past, so as to become a more relevant centrist american political party. With the passage of time the republican right wing political party will go out of existence and the present day democratic party will replace the republican party as being the new representative of the party that represents the recent traditional past. That particular change will give rise to a new main- streame political party that will represent the moving away from the no longer relevant traditions of the past and toward a new more relevant left wing progressive future.
    History has shown that you cannot stop progress, and progress has always been the movment of the masses of people to the left of the political spectrum.
