Dear the GOP:
How did you get here? From the party of Lincoln, Eisenhower, Goldwater, and Reagan to the party that is concerned with my wife’s crotch and mine. What happened to the belief in individualism and the skepticism about big government?
Lincoln sought for unity, equal rights, and humanity.
Eisenhower cut bloated spending on the military to build our infrastructure, schools, roads, and bridges.
Goldwater, who was not a president, but shaped the GOP, sought for Government that stays out of the boardroom and stays out of the bedroom.
Reagan sought for smaller government.
I am not implying that you should rename the GOP to the Crotch Party.
But, all you talk about is abortion, gay marriage, don’t ask and don’t tell, contraceptives, condoms, sex education, and so on… I usually say who cares.
Do you want government in your bedroom? Do you honestly think government can enforce morality? Morality is a part of individualism.
No one should be able to tell you what you can eat, drink, smoke, or marry, or what kind of gun you can own. We the people do not want to be snooped on by an all-knowing big brother government.
True Freedom is both economic and personal freedom.
