Where we are today is where Republicans were at this time in 2009 after the election of President Obama. Out of the unrest of that time rose the "Tea Party," and the take-over of the House and Senate in 2010 with right wing Republicans. We can do this. Now is not the time to grow weary. Keep working and keep your eyes on 2018!
Last year I took some time to study the Republican Party. It seems today there's no place for moderate Republicans, they've become Independents.
What's left of the Party is split into several factions, all about monetary gains, property, big business, and power. The faction of the party that was about people is gone.
Once people were out of the picture the Party became harsh and power driven. They're a suspicious and paranoid people these days.
It seems to me Independents are now composed of conservative Democrats and moderate Republicans. Perhaps its time for them to stop swinging in the wind and unite. I'm open to a new party, though to be honest, I don't see that happening.
Matthew Dowd is a person I follow on Twitter. You may catch him on TV as he's on some of the panels there, ABC, I believe. He's been a Democrat, he's been a Republican, he's now an Independent. Most of the time I like what he has to say on Twitter. He's considering running as an Independent in Texas to replace Senator Ted Cruz in 2018. I would certainly support that.
He has started something called "Listen To Us" following through on his belief both political parties are broken and we're going to need new parties. I encourage you to read what he has to say.
Through it all I usually find something to make me smile. This morning it was from the blog "Murmurs." You seriously need to read it.
For me it's always about
Civil Rights, Human Rights, Voting Rights & Religious Freedom.
Since I'm seeing no thought of those issues in the Republican Party these days I must work through the Democratic Party.
