An American Rant

For years I was a proud conservative Republican. Today’s Republican Party has lost its way and has not done the business of the people. Today’s GOP is not the GOP I grew up with, they are a black stain on our Republic.

Approximately one year ago I left the Republican party and registered as an Independent. From many discussions and research, I’ve done I’ve come to realize that I’m fiscally a conservative but in most other areas I’m a moderate.  I’m a strong believer in our Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

I took an oath many years ago to protect and defend our Constitution and no one has ever relieved me of that oath.  I take my duty as an American citizen seriously.  I’m also a supporter of the Convention of States movement going on to call for a Constitutional Convention.  Seeing as Congress refuses to do the will of the people, we the people under Article X of the Constitution have the right to call for a convention.  We need to tell these career politicians that we are tired of them looking out only for themselves.  They are elected to the will of the voters.  It is high time that we place term limits on the House of Representatives and the Senate.  The President has term limits and that happened after the historic third and fourth terms of FDR, and I say it is high time that Congress is held to the same respect.

I’m all for legal immigration, I’m against illegal immigration, however, I do agree with this quote from @FaithRubPol on Twitter: “As Lincoln said of slavery, so we should also say about undocumented immigrants. Both sides are guilty of not helping enough. Don’t make children pawns in a political game. Put aside politics and stop blaming. Just help.”

End of rant.
