I'm probably going to resign as a Republican at this point. The Republican party is run by RINOs and the power structure is such that it does not represent the values that have been traditionally republican.

I think we need to consider starting a Reagan Republican Party or a Reagan Republican Trust Fund, where all of us conservatives can stop contributing any money to any Republican candidate or the Republican party and instead send our money to this trust fund. In order for any candidate to get their hands on any of that money, they would need to sign a pledge that they would only vote consistently with the principles of the Reagan Republican Trust Fund platform. Failure to follow those principles would result in the candidate being permanently prohibited from receiving any of the trust fund's money in the future.

My proposal for the Reagan Republican Trust Fund Pledge:

1) Lower taxes;
2) Limited Government;
3) Strong National Defense;
4) Secure Borders;
5) Protection of the unborn;
6) Individual 2nd Amendment rights;
7) Judicial Restraint;
8) Individual Liberty with Individual Responsibility;
9) Nationalism;
10) Patriotism - America First.

I, too, will resign as a Republican. There is no way that the Rinos will be driven out. They proved this campaign that they run the place. I say let them have it. It’s old and decrepit, anyway.

A new party is probably the best course. Although, we should go read the Constitution Party platform. It really is a reasonable first step to see what they are trying to do.

These parties keep trying to gain notoriety from the top down...they always run for President.

I would favor instead running from the bottom up: county commissioners, trustees, common judges, attorneys general, state-level reps, senators.
