Calling all Conservatives: Would you rather vote for the GOP, or this new Political Party?
Ever since the Tea Party emerged onto the Political Scene, True Conservatives have been looking for a home to call their own. The traditional Republican Party has not welcomed us, as the Tea Party has had mixed reviews in the Main Stream Media. Joining the existing third parties have not been effective, because it is hard to gain meaningful election wins without a major party. In addition, no one has been able to properly define what a typical “Tea Party Voter” is, so the part has been unable to mobilize nationally.
What if we could change all of that? What if we could define the ideals of the Tea Party in an easy-to-understand manner, which allowed a very conservative party to cast a wide net of support?
What if we were able to draw supporters of the right-wing Republicans, Fiscally-Conservative Democrats, along with the support of 3rd parties like the Constitution Party, the Natural Law Party, and the Libertarian Party?
What if we had 3 simple rules. As long as you could follow those rules, you could be a member of the party, and the national party would support your candidacy?
What if the new party’s only three rules were:
1) Protect the Bill of Rights, and the Constitution of the United States of America
2) Reduce Tax liability, drastically reduce spending, and work to reduce the National Debt
3) Social issues should be decided by the 10th Amendment, and all views are welcome within the Party
Can anyone reading this blog post think of a reason why such a party would not garner significant support? You have a party who protects the Constitution, a party which lowers federal spending, lowers overall taxation, and lowers the National Debt. And, finally, you have a party who allows you to believe what you want on Social issues, as long as you believe that the individual state legislatures, or that state’s population, should get to decide on the legality of those issues.
This party would allow for a far-right-conservative to vote for a candidate, while at the same time allowing for a Moderate Democrat to vote for the same candidate. This party could theoretically attract folks from the Constitution Party, while also attracting folks from the Green Party. In short, a Constitution-protecting candidate, with the latitude to support what social views they want, so long as they support the 10th Amendment, could garner a wide-range of political support. This party could provide the true third party that the country has been looking for since the days of the Whigs in the mid-1800’s…
For argument’s sake, let’s give this Political Party a name: The Founder’s Party
If “The Founder’s Party” existed today, could you see yourself voting for them?
Would you be okay with a person who agreed with you on 90% of the issues, but believed the other 10% of the issues should be settled by the representatives of that state, or the people of that state?
How do we go about consolidating the third parties in this great nation? How do we garner support in the traditional deep-pocketed political machine? Once a third party has gained credibility, how do we convince them to abandon their specific cause and join our movement to create a true third option in U.S. Politics?
Please share this article if you would like to see such a party enacted in this country! Thanks!
