Below are five core principles taken from the Republican Party Platform.  These central values were passed unanimously as a single resolution by the Republican National Committee:

 

Our rights come from God, and it’s the government’s job to protect those rights.
We believe in traditional marriage, not homosexual marriage.
We believe in your right to bear arms, and it should not be infringed.
We believe in legal immigration, NOT ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.
We believe in the sanctity of life.

 

Additionally, two other significant resolutions have been passed:

 

We oppose ObamaCare.
We oppose Common Core.

 

As we approach the primary, please evaluate which candidates or incumbents presently running have honored these principles.  Google: Project Vote Smart and type in the various candidates’ names (or do the same at iVoterGuide.com).  Their voting records will appear and you can easily determine if they have supported these seven central principles.  Since past behavior is one of the best predictors of future behavior, their voting history will help you determine their commitment to these core values if they are elected.

 

When I ran for Republican National Committeeman, I committed to work against the Party’s philosophical drift to the left.  Further, I committed to getting fiscal, moral, and constitutional conservatives elected.  I still pursue these goals.  I have yet seen no instance in history where a country or state that goes socialist has helped itself, but rather has destroyed itself.  Please review the candidates running in your district, make your decisions, and join me in getting platform conservatives elected.

Why Are Republicans Upset With The Establishent

By |August 3rd, 2014|

 I have talked to multiple members, past attendees, and officers, past and present, who tell me that candidates have almost always been allowed to speak in the past. I have attended HUNDREDS of GOP events across the state, and over  400 Tea Party events in the last 6 years. I have also personally organized dozens of events myself, both for the GOP, the Tea Party, Joint events, and even for national groups and committees.  The entire POINT of a pre-election event is for candidate exposure, and to promote party unity, in an attempt to bring people together during the challenges of the primary, so that we will not carry grudges into the general election.
Pay to play is expected. Those who just buy an individual ticket or 2 and show up to mingle, get what they pay for. Those who step up and pay more usually get speaking time.  As to the agenda already being done, I am used to events with 400 to 3,000 attendees, with dozens of speakers, entertainers, vendors, and schedules  are ALWAYS flexible, especially when dealing with politicians during an election cycle. ( I do respect your understanding of the need for face to face networking before and after the event, too often that is left out).

Case in point, If I had a keynote speaker and their representative FAIL to show, (must have left some time in the agenda) I would logically reach out to the Highest ranking Republican official present and put them front and center.  The other night, that would have been Dave Agema, ( until Brian Calley showed up at the end).  Even if Ruth/Barb had shown, common practice and even self interest of the Ionia GOP would be to […]

In 1962, in a speech to the Cadets at West Point, General MacArthur said,

 

In this day of gathering storms, as moral deterioration of political power spreads its growing infection, it is essential that every spiritual force be mobilized to defend and preserve the religious base upon which this nation is founded; for it has been that base which has been the motivating impulse to our moral and national growth. History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate disaster.

 

It now appears we are on the brink of one or the other — awakening or disaster. Let’s consider our present situation.

 

(1)  Illegal immigrants (emphasis on the word illegal) in the thousands are pouring across our borders. Clearly, this poses the question: Do we welcome them with open arms or do we protect our own U.S. citizens from physical and financial harm? As a legislator, I worked diligently to stop illegal immigration because it threatens the safety and security of Americans, reduces the number of job available to U.S. citizens, and increases both state and federal costs due to increased use of social programs and government assistance. Few listened and no action was taken.

 

(2)  We have permitted PACs, lobbyists, and the wealthy elitists to determine the direction of our party. The passage of Medicaid Expansion and Common Core, along with open support for gay marriage, are prime examples of their impact. It should be noted that there is an effort to add homosexuals to the Elliot-Larson Act. The Republican Party is losing its way; it is not honoring its platform and the moral and Constitutional principles upon which that platform is based.

 

(3)  We have taken no positive action to address the infiltration of radical Islam into the highest echelons of government. An obvious example is Huma Abdin, Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff, who has three close family members connected to the Muslim Brotherhood. (See the book entitled, The Muslim Brotherhood In The Obama Administration by Frank Gaffney.) Those in power do not understand that Muslim radicals plan to take over this country from within. To quote from the article entitled, “History of the Muslim Brotherhood Penetration of the U.S. Government,” by Clare M. Lopez (April 15, 1013):

 

The process of settlement [in the U.S.] is a “Civilization-Jihadist Process” with all the term means. The Ikhwan [Brotherhood] must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and “sabotaging” its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.

 

(4)  Nor have we addressed the issue of Sharia Law being applied in our courts. Per Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy, “…Sharia law has entered into state court decisions, in conflict with the Constitution and state public policy….We found 50 significant cases just from the small sample of appellate published cases [which we reviewed].” (See article entitled, “Sharia Law and American State Courts,” June 21, 2011.)

 

Having served in both the Michigan legislature and the United States Military, I have seen first-hand the results of caving to power and/or the desire for financial gain or professional status. Selfish ambition, rather than the best interest of the country, becomes the focus. Now many of the same people who yielded to pressure, financial gain, and/or status are running again. Even though they:

 

blocked efforts to stop illegal immigration,
refused to stand against Obamacare, Medicaid Expansion, Common Core, and gay marriage,
closed their eyes to the infiltration and influence of Islamic radicals in our government, and
stonewalled the passage of a bill which would uphold the Constitution and disallow American Courts from using foreign laws (including but not limited to Sharia law),

 

. . . they are running for office again.

 

As your National Committeeman, I will not support these candidates. Please join me. Ask questions of your elected officials and check their voting records. As elections approach, let’s stand together to uphold the Constitution, the Rule of Law, and the Judeo-Christian Biblical principles on which this country was founded.
