Farewell to the GOP, for now at least!
January 21, 2006
To: RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman
Subject: The return of my 2006 RNC Membership Card
It is with deep regret that I find myself writing this letter to you.
I did in fact receive my 2006 RNC Membership Card. I will not be renewing my membership and I am returning the card to you. If you care about the why, then please read this entire letter.
When I pulled the lever for our current President in the elections of 2000 and 2004, this is what I thought I was voting for.
I am at odds with certain aspects of the Patriot Act with regards to the access of all types of records and data that may be private and none of this governments business.
Very appalling also is the attempt of this government to access Googles database.
Dont bring the War on Terror into this, you had all the info in the world to nail the 911 hijackers, but the size of the bureaucracy prevented this government from doing so.
Equally disappointing is the bungling of communication that occurred during Katrina. I am not holding the Federal Government responsible for the suffering, but I am making the point that the more you grow the federal Government the less it will actually be able to accomplish.
A Reduction of Taxes and Simplification of the Tax Code
Although some progress has been made on tax relief overall the tax code as we know it is a mess. Lets move to the Fair Tax specified by Congressman Linder and Libertarian Neil Boortz. This will go along way in helping remove the lobbyist influence over our tax code in addition to trapping a lot of currently uncollected revenue.
Giving in to the WTO with regards to expiring export taxes is a joke. What happened to a level playing field? How can the exporters of domestic services and goods compete when you tie their hands behind their backs? How can you encourage investment state side with policies like that?
Adherence to the US Constitution and Working to Up Hold its Values!
U.S. Constitution Excerpt
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
The campaign finance law passed under this administration was an direct assault to our Constitution. This must be reviewed and repealed.
U.S. Constitution Excerpt
To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions.
The illegal immigration problem is at critical mass, but our President refuses to act forcefully in concurrence with our Constitution.
U.S. Constitution Excerpt
Nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
No greater assault on the Constitution and the ownership of private property can be seen than the Kelo decision. Where is the outrage from our supposedly Conservative controlled congress and Senate about this horrendous decision? What about the Ownership Society that is so often talked about in the halls of Washington? I cannot even convey the utter disappointment I feel over this.
A Strong Military
I do support the President on Afghanistan and Iraq, but do not support more butter than guns. Being able to afford a couple of hundred state of the art fighters is a far cry from where President Ronald Reagan had us a mere 20 years ago.
Please, lets not even go there. The only thing that kept things pointed in what appears to be the correct direction is Alan and the printing press. You want proof? Look at the price of gold and energy; they are the real international currency, not the dollar. The current administration and the previous one of Clinton did and are still living off of the economy and military of a real Conservative!
In closing, yes the Administration has done a good job in the Middle East and twenty years from now will probably be seen as a brilliant move in bring democracy there. I just hope we will be as free here at home.
If you need money to fund your mid term elections I suggest you go talk to the people the listed organizations below, because they seem to know what a Conservative should stand for. They are also getting all of my available funds in the future that is if the RNC does not change course.
Minute Man Project
The Gun Owners of America
United States Senate Candidate, John Mitchel (To replace the RINO Dewine)
Ohio State Gubernatorial Candidate, Kenneth Blackwell
National Right to Life Association
P.S. This may not be fact, but it is how I feel. You guys on the hill do not give a rats arse about the Constitution or the Sons or Daughters of this Nation. The only thing that seems to matter is the amount of cash that can be jammed in the coffers and pleasing the Socialist One Worlders and I for one am sick of it.
This will help I'm sure. President Hillary and the Democratic majority will deal with your issues, count on it.
Unless you're donating six figures annually, they won't care. You'll be written off as a crank.
The battle is to supply our CIC with more true Conservatives and less RHINO's - Not to allow DEM's to take more control -
The reality is RHINO's are being elected in some cases simply because of the Demographics from which State they represent (there isn't much the GOP leadership can do about this). In other cases RHINO's are being elected because the "base" (you and I) foolishly don't defeat them in the primaries (again, the GOP leadership can't do much about this either).
The last thing we need to do now to our fine CIC is give away Congress on him and make him fight a true two front war.....Vs the GWOT and the U.S. DEM controlled congress.
Get a proofreader. Then someone might take you seriously. Then again, maybe not.
These, in the day when heaven was falling,
The hour when earth's foundations fled,
Followed their mercenary calling
And took their wages and are dead.
Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
They stood, and earth's foundations stay;
What God abandoned, these defended,
And saved the sum of things for pay.
What complete baloney. Written by yet another one who thinks he's the only pure conservative. Your vote won't be missed, believe me.
An opus! Not from FR, but an opus, nonetheless. On Monday, too.
Should be an interesting week.
You are welcome to hold anyone you desire responsible for the Katrina mess, but you are quite mistaken on this count. And certainly the Republican Party had nothing whatsoever to do with it. The federal government does not prepare or execute the emergency response plans for localized disasters. They come in after the fact under FEMA to distribute aid at the direction of the local governments.
How's the fire?
After jumping from the frying pan is the fire any better?
Now, get out and do something about your gripes.
Care to opine?? Keep it pithy please! LOL
So, you agree with Mr. Hammer's position?
I suggest you read the fine print.
