My first question when a group of Republicans announces the National Coalition for a New America was “What’s wrong with the Old America?”
My next question, is there a place for someone like me in this “New America” you want to build. Lately, my kind have not felt welcome in the GOP.
I note John McCain is involved in this organization. As a patriot, I want to see the borders of this country secured. Every sovereign nation has the right to decide who enters it, and under what conditions. If you want higher rates of immigration, pass a law. Stop playing this game of allowing unlimited immigration through the back door by not enforcing immigration law.
Also, I also want to see this country develop its own domestic supplies of energy and embrace environmental realism. People are smart enough to realize that we can’t have an environment that’s as clean as a surgical theater and still have economic growth and recreational opportunities. Tougher regulations and lawsuits here just push pollution over to countries who don’t care. We need fewer, but smarter, environmental regulations. I also think we ought to confront the myth of ManBearPig head on.
Also, as a Christian, I don’t want the Government promoting my faith, but could you at least stop the Government from using its power to promote opposition to my faith? Planned Parenthood gets subsidized to the tune of $350 million a year from the Fed Gov and more from the states to spread their message that abortion is great. The other side gets nothing. Level the playing field. End the subsidy. Also, colleges and universities receive billions in taxpayer subsidies and promote a leftist, anti-Christian view of society. End the subsidies, or insist on equal treatment.
IMHO: We don’t need a New America, we need a new Republican party.
