NWV: TIME FOR THE REPUBLICAN PARTY TO STEP ASIDE?

TIME FOR THE REPUBLICAN PARTY TO STEP ASIDE?

The history of our nation will show that the great political question of our era is the contest between ideals of limited government and individual freedom versus central planning and bureaucratic control. At this crucial point in our history, it would be of value to the free citizen, if the philosophies of the two dominant political parties reflected these contending positions. Unfortunately, in that contest, one has to wonder whether the Democratic Party and the Republican Party are but two sides of the same coin of big government?


In the march toward accumulation of power by the federal government, the so-called “liberal” Democrats usually get all the blame for their initiation of grandiose, unsustainable social schemes. LBJ’s “Great Society” comes to mind. Jimmy Carter’s creation of the Department of Education is another example. But what are we to say of the Republicans?

NOTE: Mr. Swift replied to my inquiry very graciously and I would like to share that as well....

Jim:

Of course you can link it.  Thank you.

I am a life-long Republican.  It should be noted that I became a Republican when I first registered to vote in 1960.  I have never changed.  I made that studied decision after reading JFK's book "Strategy for Peace."  The upcoming election was JFK versus Nixon.  In the book, JFK compared Republicans and Democrats.  He managed to convince me that I was not a Democrat.

But the default option of Republican hasn't proved out at all satisfactory.
