Taking a cue from paT, I shall now present you with my 'dream' platform for the Republican party, that also happens to jibe with my own personal wants. Ready? Here goes.
Social Flexibility. Fiscal Conservancy. Protection of Sovreignity.
That's it. Seven words, that, if followed, would gurarantee a healthy Conservative majority til the end of time.
You want me to flesh it out? Ok. We'll start with social flexibility. It's time for the Republican party to have a bloody, messy, public, and very final, divorce from the Conservative Christian lunatic fringe. Just dump em. We don't need em. Dump the bible jumpers, and announce to the world that we don't particularly care what you do in your free time, so long as it doesn't interfere with the life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness of any non-consenting adult. Want to be a retarted dope-head? Go for it. Kill somebody while driving and high? Prepare yourself for a long stint in PMITA prison.
See how easy that is? Do it on your own time, and don't hurt anybody else, and we don't care. Cause mayhem and destruction, go directly to jail.
Next up, Fiscal Conservancy. Cut the pork, cut taxes, balance the budget, get it freaking done. Spend Federal funds on Federal programs. When the feds are done with the cash, send the rest back to the states. I'd mention Fair Tax, among other things here, but i'm trying to keep this brief.
Protect the Sovreignity. This is easy. Defend the country, from foreign invaders, near and far. Keep the US as the shining example of freedom in the world, and intervene when necessary to protect our sovreignity, as well as the sovreignity of our allies.
That's it kids. Seven words, easy to follow, easy to understand.
