Yep, I'm a Republican. Why, you may ask? Well, I've been asking others to tell me why they are proud to be a Democrat after the Rev. Wright and the sniper-firegate debaucles recently outed by the news. Well, here's why I'm proud. Back in the eighties, we had a great President. President Reagan brought us 401K's and the Individual Retirement Account in which every American can participate. The Republican party is the party to help people, you, to create your own wealth and not to depend on the government for your welfare.
I have heard people say the Republican party is a party of evangelicals. Perhaps they are alligned with the party, but really does it matter? I don't think so. We all have our own faiths and we don't push them onto anyone from what I've seen of the party. And really, what's wrong with moral values anyway? Isn't that what allows us to live in relative peace, not fearing to get out amongst our cities and fellow Americans? Moral values are a "good thing" as a high profile home expert can probably attest.
So, if you have hung onto your Democratic party, thinking they will save you, have they? I don't know. Maybe they have. I believe we are all responsible for our own decisions in life and where they lead us. If we have a bumpy road on which we travel, then we learn not to travel that road any longer. I chose not to travel along with the Democratic party when I was in my late twenties. I'm in my late fifties now and I haven't veered off my chosen road. I recall the old saying, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." I don't know who said that, but it's really true. Democrats will throw you a fish, but is that going to be good enough? Republicans will teach you to fish, and that will sustain you. Freedom, liberty, that's what the Republican party stands for. Thanks for reading.
