A Strong GOP-- Liberty Caucus Included

Fellow co-blogger Mr. K wrote in a recent article that the Republican Party must stand tall on defense issues with libertarians. He is essentially right-- we all need to band together, especially in the face of threats from Iran and terrorism.

The unifying force of a common defense policy helped push President Bush to his 51% victory in 2004. Yes, there were many different factors, but none weighed more on the American people-- especially Republicans, libertarians, independents, and some intelligent Democrats-- like the defense policies of President bush. These policies promoted freedom while remaining strong and on the offense. President Obama's plan offers neither.

Many libertarians are anti-war and isolationist. Just look at Ron Paul's movement. What's important is that pro-defense Libertarians and libertarian Republicans band together to fight on this important issue. People like Neal Boortz and Eric Dondero are strongly pro-defense while sometimes siding with the GOP.

Defense ties in with other major issues-- gun rights, global warming, and the toothlessness of the United Nations. Only with a strong policy, just like that advanced by Reagan and Bush can the GOP and libertarians see eye to eye and win the White House in 2012.

Divisions will likely help the Democrats and a third-party run of 'purists' is likely to put Obama back in the White House. Think about that.

Every family should have a “go to” person who can give answers to political and issue concerns, as suggested by Rush Limbaugh. Learning how means starting at the roots, the beginnings and differences between two sides of the same coin, which is all there is. One side is long established, where the few rule the many, irrespective of their labels. The other side is the newest, that of individual freedom and limited government. Why do many follow each side, and why the conflict between them? What side do current issues come from, such as health care, cap and trade as well as amnesty for illegal immigrants? What side of the coin most impacts the lives of your family, to whom you provide the answers? Call up for the roots of both sides and improve your understanding of the issues so you have the answers.
