When asked why he left the Democratic party, Ronald Reagan responded: I didn’t leave the Democratic party, the Democratic party left me. That’s what happened to Charlie Crist and other moderate Republicans.
The most recent edition of the GOP puts politics over country. The GOP had the opportunity to come to the table to fix the worst financial mess since 1929. However, the GOP saw a crisis so bad, they calculated it politically advantageous to sit out, do nothing, and not take ownership of any of the fixes and then put Barack Obama and Democrats on the hot seat when the economy didn’t turn around.
Democrats should beware: if the GOP listens to Newt Gingrich rather than Rush Limbaugh it will become a party with an alternative rather than a party of NO! Listening to Rush will do two things: get Rush rich and get the GOP 45% of the vote. Neither win elections.
Republicans and Democrats alike need to start working for the country again, rather than just winning the day and working for themselves. The current way the Republican party is going– betting against America– is bound to fail.
We need a viable Republican party in Chicago and Cook County to hold city and county government accountable. Blindly voting democratic locally has left residents of Chicago and Cook County largely represented.
