A Conservative Party?

October 13, 2016

A colleague from the early days of the Conservative Movement, now living in Colorado, has sent me a video alleging that Bill Clinton raped a child. That video competes with videos and reports of The Donald about which we all have heard or seen.  Whether there is enough dirt on Clinton to nudge the voters to vote for The Donald is anyone’s guess.

But, at least during the Clinton Administration there was an historical response—the Contract with America–that led to GOP control of the U.S. House of Representatives for the first time in forty years..

If Hillary wins, however, the GOP will be engaged in a fratricidal fight with the outcome achieved not less than a decade later.

What should we do?

There are significant numbers of voters for whom a limited government—Contract with America–program is appealing, but all those walking away from Trump are another faction within the GOP.  The two sides cannot and will not come together.

So, during the next five to ten years, we need to work to organize a national Conservative Party—or gain control of one that already exists—and build support so that we may compete in the coming multi-party system where many elections to come may be decided in the House of Representatives.

I lived in New York for many years, registered as a Republican, but voted for Conservative Party candidates. Something like that is needed today on a national scale. The persons who take leadership now, when all seems lost, will become the leaders of our country by 2022.

Who may those leaders be? A good place to start may be the nine founding members of the Freedom Caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Rep. Scott Garrett       Rep. Jim Jordan,       Rep. John Fleming

Rep. Justin Amash      Rep. Raúl Labrador  Rep. Mick Mulvaney 

Rep. Ron DeSantis     Rep. Mark Meadows
