Contract With America 2

Remember the 'Contract With America?' This was the document that Republicans used in 1994-95 to take control of the House away from the Democrats. It was the revival of conservatism in America. The kind of conservatism from the likes of Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan that carried the ideas that smaller government was better government and that big government was never good even if it is our own party’s government. The ideas that the Republican Party has seemed to left behind.

Well it must be election time because Tim Chapman says the contract has been renewed....but after the recent actions from the party are the American people in the mood to sign the contract? I am not buying it.

Don’t get me wrong, there are still some good Republicans out there that are trying to do the right thing like House Rep. Mike Pence (IN) and Jeb Hensarling (TX) and a few others. They should be awarded accordingly. Unfortunately, the majority of the party has jumped ship and the only reason they will climb back on board is because it is an election year.

Let’s face it when it comes to spending and big government there just isn’t much difference between the two parties anymore.

You know, if the Republican Party would have just stayed true to the party platform there wouldn’t have been a need for the contract with America now would there? Just something to think about this election season.
