True Republicans and False Republicans

As I have stated before, I am a Republican. I am a True Republican.

Ahh, you ask, what is a True Republican, and how does one differ from the army of incompetent loons currently ruining our country?

Well, a True Republican believes in certain things: Justice, Equity and Responsibility. Let's take them one at a time, and you will see what differentiates a True Republican from the hideous, misshapen, misanthropic thing that has hijacked the Party and turned it and this country into an object of pity, contempt and derision:

Justice: A Republican believes in a just society, ruled by laws made by reasonable people for reasonable reasons. A Republican also believes that no one is above or beneath the law, that all are equal before the law, and no one who lives in this country can be denied access to the full panoply of the criminal justice system.

Equity: A Republican is a member of the "Party of Lincoln," and believes that all people are equal, and deserve equal rights and opportunities. This fairness extends to all, regardless of their skin color, their religion, their gender or their sexual orientation.

Responsibility: A Republican is a conservative, who manages money and resources frugally but never miserly. Responsibility includes accountability; if a True Republican makes a mistake, they admit it, accept any penalty for the mistake, and learn from the experience.

A False Republican believes in none of these things, make no mistake. But a False Republican believes in certain things as well:

A False Republican believes that the Party is always right.

A False Republican believes that the Leader of the Party is always right.

A False Republican believes that no one should criticise the Leader of the Party. Ever.

A False Republican believes that anything that advances the Party is right, no matter how unethical or illegal it may appear to lesser mortals

See the difference?

Walt, if it wasn't against my religion to belong to ANY political party I do believe you'd have talked me into becoming a TRUE REPUBLICAN.

Walt, as a true Republican, you're part of a mighty small group these days. :-) The grand old party of Eisenhower and Goldwater has vanished.

It's good to hear your voice. Where are the true conservatives in this country? And when I mean true conservative, I don't mean the lunatic religious right or the right-wing nut jobs in the White House. We need true conservatives more than ever.
