To my friends in Sussex County and other WGMD listeners:
I’m a Republican and plan to stay a Republican. I can think of nothing that would make me leave. Since I can remember, I have taken my inspiration from Abraham Lincoln (note the blog’s picture and name) as well as Ronald Reagan and Teddy Roosevelt. Of course, Newt Gingrich is a great idea factory in his own right.
I don’t know the origin of any rumors, but ignore them. At my core I support the Lincoln belief in individual liberty. Of course, if I think that Republicans have lost their way, I have no problem in saying so. If I think that a Democrat has it correct — I have no problem in saying so. That is just being intellectually honest. But, that doesn’t change the fact that Republicans have superior ideas to growing our State and Nation than the left-wing which controls most of the Democrat party.
Let’s look at the intellectual debate coming from the leftwing; it can be summed up as 1) We think that life is “unfair” so we want to give your hard-earned money to people that we like; 2) We don’t like George Bush and Rush Limbaugh so we want to give your hard-earned money to people that we like; and/or 3) Republicans left us with a large debt so we must triple it by giving your hard-earned money to people that we like.
If the left truly wanted to help people, they would free public education from the bureaucrats and unionists, and they would reduce government’s bureaucracy so that small businesses again can thrive and grow and employ people.
You want tax revenues, then have an economy (and governments can’t run economies so get out of the way).
I want every man to have the chance … in which he can better his condition, when he may look forward and hope to be a hired labourer this year and the next, work for himself afterward, and finally to hire men to work for him. That is the true system. — Abraham Lincoln.
