Dear Republicans

Dear Republicans,

With the 2012 election behind us, we look to 2014 to turn things around. The blaming and pointing of fingers began even before polls closed on election night. Many in the party suggest a move toward the center is the only way to draw in young people. That in my opinion, is the worst decision the GOP could make.

As an 18 year old conservative Republican a move toward the center would be the final nail in the coffin for the Republican Party. Young people are finally waking up to the fact that our nation is in trouble and many of our freedoms our quickly eroding before our eyes.

It’s not the policies that we stand for that turn the young people away but instead the attempts of pandering is why many look to the left. 

If Republicans turn away from our stances on traditional marriage, our promises NOT to raise taxes, and even the sanctity of life  what is the difference between us and the left? Nothing, beside the left also promising “free” stuff.

We must not abandon the values this nation was founded upon and the principles that led us through our darkest times. We need a restoration in this nation and party; not a moderation.

I urge you, Republicans, as a concerned young American, to stay true to your beliefs, to always fight for life, marriage, fiscal responsibly and most importantly our Constitution, And always remember why you serve…

As Henry Clay once said, “The Constitution of the United States was made not merely for the generation that then existed, but for posterity—unlimited, undefined, endless, perpetual posterity.” 

A concerned American,

  1. Far from it,

    A rational move towards the issues and away rhetoric is exactly what the Republican Party needs.

    If you want your party to lose more elections keep campaigning on Abortion, Raising Military expenditures, and not tax increases.

    The GOP lost every swing state not because it was too moderate, but because it was too out of touch with the people.

    I voted Johnson, not because Romney was too moderate. But because I believe that fiscal conservatism requires raising taxes as one aspect of balancing the budget.
