Right now, our Republican Party is torn between two unacceptable options:
We can keep talking about our principles the way we have… and keep losing elections.
Or we can compromise our principles the way some suggest… and keep losing elections.
There is a better way.
As GOP Chairman Reince Preibus said in his recent speech to the RNC:
“We can stand by our timeless principles—and articulate them in ways that are modern…relevant to our time and relate-able to the majority of voters. That, I believe, is how we’ll achieve a Republican renewal. That’s how we’ll grow. That’s how we’ll win.”
We can stand up for bottom-up, natural economic growth; not old, top-down, political and artificial stimulus, directed by Washington.
We can stand up for equal opportunity in education, giving every parent the right to choose the best school for their child.
We can stand up for an open energy economy that puts energy choices in your hands, not the hands of politicians.
We can stand up for an open health care system that returns control of your care to you and your doctor; not a closed, limited, factory-like health care system that gives Washington the power to ration and determine your care.
We can stand up for a bottom-up immigration system that let’s states decide what kind of bright minds and hard workers they need; not a top down system where states are told what to do by Washington.
We can stand up for individuals not big business, big government and special interests. We can stand up for a better life for all Americans, no matter where they come from, what their last name is, or their skin color.
We can stand up for freedom nationally and values locally… and trust the American people to out-work, out-think, and out-dream anybody in the world.
There is a New Global Economic Frontier out there, a new era of unimaginable success, progress and prosperity. It’s waiting for us, just over the horizon. It’s time for all Americans to go there.
If you are tired of the old, slow, dumb, top-down Washington way of doing things… you are thinking like a Republican. A New Republican.
