The 'Stupid' Party Doesn't Represent My Values

The 'Stupid' Party Doesn't Represent My Values

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said that Donald Trump’s message on holding off on admitting more Muslims into the United States is “not being what this party stands for, and more importantly, it’s not what this country stands for.”

To be fair, Trump said that the hold-up on Muslim immigration was until we can “find out what the hell is going on.”

I thought — What does the Republican Party stand for?  Does it represent this country’s values? And to borrow a phrase from Ryan, does the Republicans represent my values?

I can’t speak for the whole country, but I can speak for myself. The values I believe in are fairly simple.  I believe that we are a part of the creation of the universe.   I believe personal liberty defined in part as an absence of government coercion. I believe in family. I believe in the capitalist free-market. I believe in the presumption of innocence. I believe the government is the problem.

Looking back at how the Republicans and Democrats governed this country in a bipartisanship way over the last ten presidencies, it’s clear that neither Republicans nor Democrats represent my values.

Eric Erickson, who blogs for RedState, described the Republicans and Democrats accurately when he said, “Every once in a while the stupid party and the evil party get together and do something that is both stupid and evil. In Washington, that is called bipartisanship.”

The Republicans are the stupid party.

Governor Bobby Jindal (after President Obama’s second inaugural address) said to the country on behalf of the Republican Party: “We must stop being the stupid party.  I’m serious.…We must stop insulting our voters.”

Here we are facing another presidential election, and the Republican National Committee seems as brain-dead as ever.

Essentially, the RNC is horrified at the prospect that the Republican presidential candidate might be somebody other than a long-standing  middle-of-the-road politician, like a nice governor or senator, who won’t upset the Washington, D.C., bipartisanship status quo.

Reagan, Bush, Dole, Bush, McCain or Romney never committed to making radical changes.  They went overboard appeasing the religious right wing, angering the fiscal conservatives, and rejecting the Republican liberals.

When Reagan, Bush, and Bush got elected, they worked right with the Democrats pushing an agenda of bigger government, more pork barrel spending, more regulatory control of the economy, more facilitating the Wall Street and Federal Reserve Casino, greater criminalization while taking away personal liberty.

Government incentives and policies have caused a massive breakdown of the family structure.

Do the Republicans believe in following constitutional principles?

Give me a break. They are far too busy being pigs at the trough.

While theoretically raising a few million in tax revenue over ten years, the new transportation, law takes away your passport merely if the government claims you owe tax. Besides that, tax collection is given over to outside debt collectors.  Effectively, they are bounty hunters.  These are not people who believe in tax reform, financial privacy, or the constitution.

The Republican establishment finds little problem with non-American Muslims not in the United States  Constitutional protection and a right of immigration.  They readily condemn anyone running for high office that questions the danger Islam poses to the United States.

Sure, the Republican’s believe in defending the United States from terrorists. But they believe in sucking up to Muslim voters even more.  If you didn’t know, Islam according to the Republican establishment is a religion of peace.  Isn’t peace breaking out all over everywhere there are Muslims?

The Constitution and the American flag are something in which Republicans wrap themselves while pursuing constituent votes and getting campaign contributions to get constituent votes.

The Constitution is a contract among the people who together agree to form a government.  The power to do that comes from the Creator, who gave The People some powers but not all. We transferred powers to organize the government.  The Constitution is the document that sets out the terms and conditions of that contract.

To transfer power to the government, a person must exist legally enough to be a party to a contract.

But who is a Constitutionally legal person?

Let’s consider this in light of the Republican’s mania on the right to life issue so disliked by independent voters along with the Republican fiscal conservative and liberal wings.

It should be clear that a fetus is a moral or ethical being, but not a legal one that can enter a contract on its own which transfers powers endowed by the Creator. A fetus is not a human being for federal tax purposes.

As a matter of Constitutional principle, the federal government has no right of any kind to invade a person’s body. And the power over their body belongs to that person and not the government. On this basis, there is no separate Constitutional right to life, but there is a Constitutional right to die. That is if you believe in the underlying principles of the Constitution.

Which lead us to this current election Republican fiasco where the Republican National Committee is stunned by the anti-establishment candidates beating the pants off the establishment candidates in the polls.

The RNC may yet stop the presidential candidates most favored by Republican and independent voters.

That’s exactly why the Republicans have earned their reputation as the party of stupid.
