The Republican Party and Its Need for a Strong Message

unite3_200-85c05aec13c8ea544dd35fc9f3c826cddb1beea8-s6-c30Amid the Chris Christie “Bridgegate” scandal and the Chamber of Commerce’s decision to abandon Tea Party oriented candidates in 2014; the Republican Party is clearly lacking an identity and platform that can gander much needed support. There is a constant divide between the establishment and the new wave of Republican candidates over the definition of “limited government.” Political parties were created to broaden appeal to as many like-minded individuals as possible, in order to push for specific ideals and legislation. Under President Ronald Reagan, all strands of the GOP were able to compromise and make the 1980’s a decade that will be always known for a period of smart governance. The GOP must stand for the middle class and for responsible government, thus, the message must be inclusive and always provide common sense alternatives to the Democratic Party.

“That person who agrees with 80 percent of the time is a friend and an ally; not 20 percent an enemy” – President Ronald Reagan

FE_DA_0221_McConnell_Graham425x283Election season is right around the corner and many candidates are starting to join the scene and challenge Democratic incumbents and vise versa. As Obamacare continues to fail and the Democratic Party’s platform on economic grows staggeringly unpopular, the GOP need to be in direct response to their big government discourse. Individuals such as Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham have fallen into the hot seats with patriotic conservatives and many are calling for their end in 2014 for supporting war hawk foreign policy beliefs and not standing by Senator Ted Cruz’s 22 hour stand against Obamacare. Despite their unpopularity, the GOP still needs their two votes in the senate to put a halt on President Obama’s agenda at a halt. The GOP need to show that elephants are the ones who believe supporting the dignity of work and the growth of American business.

Currently, 29 states have Republican Governors and constantly those states get ranked the highest in economic opportunity and business prospective. So if the GOP’s Governors are so popular, why are not the Senators? The answer lies in messaging and unity. All Republican Governors have a proven track record and are immensely popular on the national scene. Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin has displayed how to promote his reform mentality in a battleground state like Wisconsin. It is in governors, like Scott Walker, that the congressional and senatorial leaders should take note.

The Republican Party stands for many ideas for many different people and it must remain that way, in order to bring out better candidates and have a stronger chance at reviving America’s once strong economy. Tea Partiers, Republicans, and Libertarians must all unite to under the wing of the GOP and work on common ground and terms to defeat Democratic candidates. The pool of candidates for upcoming elections is enormous and their are many individuals that can appeal to a large amount of people, however, it can only be done under a united party and strong message that stands for the integrity of America.

  1. Stay STRONG!!! Our candidates thus far have backed down and allowed themselves to be walked over like a carpet. Be truthful and honestly speak the facts with God leading!!! Never back down!!! Know and Believe in your knowledge and not let anyone make you doubt that to the point of quiting, giving up!!! Americans need someone who will be head strong all the way to the finish!!! God bless!!!

  2. What you propose is a wonderful concept, but RINOS/Liberal Republican Establishment, refuses! When the RINOS vote with the Obama Agenda, your premise gets blown out of the water. Which is exactly what Mitch McConnellcare has been doing, along with his RINO Hordes. Continuing to ask Conservatives & Libertarians to back RINOS who Stab them in the Back, Repeatedly, serves no purpose. Conservatives & Libertarians now only believe what politicians do & not a word they say! We have taken The Mizzou Motto to Heart! Show Me! (Cause we sure don’t believe you, RINOS!) #OperationAmericanSpring #Benghazi #BringBoweHome #PJNET

    God Bless America!

  4. I hardly comment, but i did some searching and wound up here The Republican Party and Its Need for a
    Strong Message | Red Millennial. And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you
    don’t mind. Is it only me or does it seem
    like a few of the comments appear as if
    they are left by brain dead people? 😛 And, if
    you are writing on additional sites, I would like to follow anything fresh
    you have to post. Would you make a list of the complete urls of all your shared
    pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  5. Having read this I believed it was very informative. I appreciate you taking the time and
    energy to put this article together. I once again find myself spending
    a significant amount of time both reading and leaving comments.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!
