It is Time to Vote Straight Ticket Republican

For decades, patriotic Americans have resisted the recommendation to vote “straight ticket”, preferring instead to vote “on the candidate” race by race. There have been conservative Democrats that ran for and won office, remaining with that rapidly changing party in order to change it from within.
That time is over. The dictatorial leadership of the Democratic Party at this point is both corrupt and evil to the core. They despise the shackles the Constitution puts on big government and plow full speed ahead in expanding chains on American industry. They harbor deep hostility toward traditional American values. They have adopted unsustainable fiscal, monetary, budgetary, and social policies, leading the way gleefully toward complete financial collapse. They do not believe in the concept of American Exceptionalism. They support enemies of America and American interests, including a promise to the former Soviet Union to have “more flexibility” after his re-election!
They are tolerant of all things except American and Biblical values. They are openly hostile to free enterprise, openly want to take from the makers to give to the takers, and similarly are open to stealing entire companies and industries as they did with General Motors (if you recall, the “owners” of GM, the bondholders who legally invested in GM and had the first lien on its assets and included millions of ordinary Americans through their savings and pension plans, were left with nothing in order for Obama to use “the Chicago way” to give the company to his union supporters to fund their pensions and medical.) Obama wants to expand his destruction of wealth, recently saying, “Now I want to do the same thing with manufacturing jobs, not just in the auto industry, but in every industry.” [underline added] They lie, they cheat, they steal, they bribe, they are bribed…they even give massive numbers of guns to drug cartels. They are deceivers bent on undoing this “last best hope”.
The Democrat leadership, including Obama, Reid and Pelosi and their minions, raided (some would say stole from) the medical safety net Medicare to the tune of $716 BILLION dollars to stuff the money into their pet program against the clear will of most Democrats, Independents, and Republicans; famously saying that we had to pass the bill to see what (monstrosities) were in it. The Democrat- controlled Senate of course has not even passed a Constitutionally required budget in four years!
We need to win not just the presidency, but the Senate and extend the majority in the House. State and local races are also of extreme importance, and unfortunately, the average voter today knows very little of the qualifications and beliefs and voting records of candidates. However, the GOP in general, and the Tea Parties in particular, are doing fantastic jobs of finding and vetting solid candidates that value the Constitution, traditional American values, Fiscal and Monetary restraint, and smaller government.
Hence, in the battle to save America from what the truly evil Democratic party leadership has become and will certainly try to do if they retain power, I propose that we start an active campaign to encourage voters of all stripes and walks of life to “Vote Straight Ticket Republican”. (A friend counsels that it is a time saving device as well…”Vote One and Done”, meaning you can vote R and you are done rapidly.)
For those of you who do social media, I would suggest the twitter hash tag #VoteStraightRepublican followed by your reason of choice. As examples from another friend,
#VoteStraightRepublican because we DID build it!
#VoteStraightRepublican because America isn’t Chicago!
#VoteStraightRepublican because the Constitution matters!
#VoteStraightRepublican because America IS Exceptional!
Facebook and other social media and email and blog posts along the same lines could help your not-so-politically-active friends to get the message. Small business owners with LED signs or message marquis could put the message on the sign from time to time. Make your own yard sign. Use your imagination. Do it now.
Nearly fifty years ago, a defeated presidential primary candidate gave a speech that remains relevant, perhaps more so today than then. He closed his speech with,
“You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on Earth, or we will sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.”
This election, with its consequences on not just the next four years but the Supreme Court direction for perhaps forty years, is the most important in our lifetimes thus far. Please actively help as you can.
