Remember, Act And Reach Out - And Response

Sunday, November 11, 2012

Most members of Hitler's Nazi Party were probably pretty good people. They just got caught up in and were brainwashed by the cesspool of the evil and the stupid. Although the E&S were a minority, they were more active and involved where as the good guys were choosing to enjoy life and paid no attention to the stupid politics around them until.........sound familiar? 

First of all, if we're going to get our country back, (and I mean the USA, not the CSA,) we gotta shed the apathy. Get our heads outta the sand and start paying attention to the big picture. We're gonna have to learn that if the thugs come for your neighbor, they're eventually gonna come for you too so realize, we are all connected with everything. We are gonna have to sacrifice some time and ....yes .....some of that filthy old money 

But remember this. We need to reach out to the moderate Conservatives who make up the majority of the Republican Party. Try to help them understand what has happened to their party and remember (believe it or not) they mostly want the same things we do.  

So reach out, take a Republican to lunch. Not only will you be cultivating a new friendship, but you might be making a valuable ally as well.

Namaste

Doug, 

Huh, weak Republican Party, are you kidding? 

Republicans and conservatives control the State of Tennessee, from the governor’s office, House and Senate. In fact, the Republicans are a super majority in a sweeping state election win. They even took the District 10 State Senate. I think we have one lone Democrat in elected state office, the way it should be. 

To depict the conservatives of the Republican Party as a weak link is comical. Conservatives are large and in charge of this state. 

On a local level, count the number of Republicans in local office. They are strong in numbers. 

On a federal level, sure Jimmy Carter has been reelected for a second term to control the White House, and control of the Senate, but the Republican Party still has the House.   

Finally, you have no way of knowing if the make-up of the Republican Party is predominately moderate or not. The members of the Republican Party I know make no apologies for their conservative belief system or platform, nor do they need to.   Count the number of elected officials that represent you with (R) at the end. 

From the super majority Red State of Tennessee, I would fire that Chip Forrester guy.
