Michael Steele is once again on his strange apology tour for all ‘us’ racist Republicans. If Steele believes this is the way to promote and garner support from Tea Partiers and grassroot activists he is failing. We all know those that live and work in the Beltway of DC have strange and distorted views on those of us who live in flyover land and constitute the base of the GOP. Steele is your typical out of touch ‘moderate’ Republican who needs the love of the left wing media to make them feel good about themselves. To receive the love of the media, the first requirement is to denigrate the grassroots base of the Republican Party.
MARTIN: But your candidates got to talk to them. One of the criticisms I’ve always had is Republicans — white Republicans — have been scared of black folks.
STEELE: You’re absolutely right. I mean I’ve been in the room and they’ve been scared of me. I’m like, “I’m on your side” and so I can imagine going out there and talking to someone like you, you know, [you’re like,] “I’ll listen.” And they’re like “Well.” Let me tell you. You saw in Christie and you saw in McDonnell a door open because they went in and engaged. McDonnell was very deliberate about spending –
Mr. Steele, I strongly advise you to stay away from my neck of the woods because I’m sure that if you were in my presence you’d be skeered out of your teeny tiny Beltway brain. I don’t need your brand of Republicanism, nor do I want you to be the one promoting the GOP due to your contorted view of just what a Republican should represent.
Here’s what I (and CWAN) believe the Republican Party should represent:
November 7, 2009
The Republican Party is fond of saying they are the party of the Big Tent in that not everyone will agree with each other 100% of the time. How far to the left before the tent no longer covers a candidate or an idea?
CWAN believes the tent has been tethered to a ship that is being steered to the Left. While Republicans have professed to believe in smaller government and limited spending, they have expanded government under their watch(1).
CWAN believes that our government is based on a two party system and we will remain in the Republican Party. However, we will promote conservative Republicans and support only those candidates who agree and vote these values.
1. No taxes can be levied on the American people by a treaty, or by a foreign government or foreign entity such as the United Nations.
2. The sanctity of marriage is defined as between one adult man and one adult woman.
3. There will be no taxpayer funded abortions.
4. Congress should specify the source of it’s authority under the U.S. Constitution for the enactment of laws, and for other purposes. (H.R. 1359, Enumerated Powers Act, 110th Congress)
5. Judicial candidates to be approved should adhere to the principles of interpreting the law rather than usurping the authority given by the U.S. Constitution to the Legislative Branch.
6. The U.S. Constitution grants citizens the rights to keep and bear arms for their protection without restrictions.
(1) Republicans held both federal chambers from 1995 to 2006 and the Presidency from 2000 to 2008. During this time, yearly spending has doubled (from $5,312B to $9,007B) as has the deficit (from $1.5T to $2.7T).
