I have been registered Democrat, Libertarian, and Republican. For many years I could not stand Republican politics but later recognized their party
had been hijacked by fringe elements and would soon need change, so registered more than a decade ago to start being part of that change from within.
I am very glad to see that is starting to come about now, many thanks for taking the elephant by the tusks.
By all claims to that effect the Republican Party should be about small government - federal and local, it should be about fiscal responsibility, and
most importantly should be the party for liberty and personal responsibility respectful of privacies and self-ownership, it should be the party for
those who strive for excellency. Recent decades have fallen short of those noble aspirations and shamefully the moral sanctimony supplanting them,
however popular, fails all of us miserably
The shift back to that straight and narrow path is taking ground at the grass roots now. I hope the coming generations recognize the importance of all
of that and maintain those values as a matter of course. Self=respect and impeccable charcter are good things, worth working for.
Very well done!
