Since RINO Mitt Romney’s election loss last week the RINOs and their fellow liberals in the “mainstream” media and elsewhere are (predictably) giving Republicans advice on how to fix the problem.
It is, of course, complete surrender of foundational Republican values. Since minorities voted for Baraka Claus in droves, responding like children to the Pied Piper’s siren song of free goodies at another American’s expense, it therefore follows (in their liberal minds) that the Republican Party needs to get on the bandwagon. Republicans need to shamelessly pander to minorities. According to the RINO/liberal logic, Republicans should offer free things (that other Americans have to pay for), too.
Well, Dennis Prager has another (and infinitely better) solution: communicate American values–and their superiority and desirability–to those groups who rejected the GOP’s nebulous, vague and frequently conflicted message in the election.
From Prager’s latest:
The most widely offered explanation for Mitt Romney’s defeat is that the Republican Party is disproportionately composed of — aging — white males.
That is, alas, true.
But the real question is what Republicans should do with this truth.
There are two responses.
The nearly universal response — meaning the response offered by the liberal media and liberal academics (and some Republicans) — is that the Republican Party needs to rethink its positions, moving away from conservatism and toward the political center.
The other response is for conservatives and the Republican Party to embark on a massive campaign to influence, and ultimately change, the values of those groups that voted Democrat.
Yes, it will be hard work to educate Americans once again on why America has been the greatest nation in history–and why the Republican Party’s values are the political expression of those principles. But nothing good is ever easy, and it’s the only way to turn things around, not only for the Republican Party but for America.
In recent years, Republicans have done an absolutely pathetic job of communicating their values to the American people. Those values are all too frequently conflicted and contradicted these days, when we see “Republicans” promoting the slaughter of innocent human life, we see “Republicans” eager to surrender marriage and the family to homosexual activists, we seen “Republicans” willing to sell out law and national sovereignty by ignoring our laws and opening our borders, we see “Republicans” sell out capitalism and the free market to their buddies in “crony capitalism,”…and we see “Republicans” attacking other Republicans because some Republicans actually believe in Republican values and have the audacity to be serious about seeing them carried out.
With hypocrisy like this from the “Republican” Party, why should anyone believe in it or anything it says?
America as a whole has also failed for many decades to communicate American principles and values to each generation. Many decades ago, we surrendered our public education system to anti-American Leftists who have taught several generations that America is an evil place, that America is the great oppressor, that no one can get a fair shot here because they are being held down by “the rich,” that America is the source of evil in the world, that America must give up freedom and the free market and adopt Marxism in some form or another like “enlightened” countries do.
The Republican Party (and every Republican) needs to pour everything we have into bypassing the Leftist media and academia establishment to take the message of American and Republican values to the people. If people understand that there is no such thing as a free lunch, that freedom of opportunity is infinitely better than a faux government-forced facade of “equality of outcome,” that the values that made America great and provided the greatest opportunity in history to a people can once again to so today…if we can re-acquaint the American people with why this is the best place in the world to be, they will flock to the GOP in droves.
Of course, for those of us who are Christians, we know that there is an even stronger way to change a person’s values for the better: a complete change of heart. Christians need to be the busiest of all, and don’t forget: it was America’s Christian values that made her great in the first place.
But for this to work, you have to be willing to roll up your sleeves. You have to be willing to communicate some strange and sometimes unwelcome truths to people. Are you willing…or would you rather just see the Republican Party and America implode?
And for all you race-card-players out there, before you get all hysterical on us and brand Prager a racist, please remember that he is a Jew. Of course, that has never stopped liberals from acting out their racism before, but please, try to be decent for once, and give what he says some intelligent, reasoned thought.
