The old ways of politics are gone and the only way the GOP can survive is to realize that and change with the times. President Obama is not good for our country but what alternative did the GOP give to the voters that listened to him? He has effectively offered government handouts, advertised food stamps, pushed through government health care, encouraged “government” schools and many other programs for those who are willing, needy, scared and hurting. What alternative did the GOP give them?
The GOP needs to be the voice of reason and the party of action. Send your candidates out to the schools to mentor the students on work and business. Go into the colleges with apprenticeship programs in business and industry. Set up programs to teach people how to get off government programs. Complaining and bitching only brings you defeat. The people want clear answers and they need to be shown the alternatives there are for them. Successful business people are in a position to create an environment of learning and foster avenues of self-reliance, where are they? The “rich” could easily change the perception the progressive are putting out there if they would get out of the business world and back to the streets. We need GOP candidates that roll up their sleeves and help others. We do not need candidates that put on their suit and tie, give pretty speeches, and continue to come off as cold and out of touch.
I know that the Republican Party is made up of many good people, they want to do the right things and help our country, however, they have got to get the blinders off and step out into the sunlight of reality. This country has changed, our young people communicate in different ways today, and our people are looking for the hand up they need. We need to provide that and get it going quickly to take this country where it needs to go. We can make this happen, but it will take a lot of hard work on the parts of all of us that love this country, love its people and want to see it survive on the foundation the founding Fathers put in place for us.
