Watching the Republican Convention has been a lesson for me. I got to see upcoming stars in the party. These are people we usually may not know or see. We may hear of them but that’s all.
Many of the speakers were among this group of the New Guns as they are called.
These new guns include Martinez, Governor of N.Mexico, a woman and a dynamite one at that. Her speech was on point, sprinkled with humor and she is a proud America from a Latino background.
Speeches by Rand Paul, Pawlenty, Portman, Thune, Kelly Ayotte, and other up and coming stars of the “new” republicans were all impressive and depicted the values we hold dear.
And of course Paul Ryan who is obviously a mover and a shaker. He knocked a home run out of the park with his speech, using a scalpel ripping apart Obama’s policies and did it all with no rancor and no anger. It was extremely impressive for this 42 year old man. He has so much poise, so much confidence and self esteem, but not without humility. He is the young man you would be glad your daughter was to date. He is a cheese head and proud of it. He lives in the same neighborhood in which he grew up.
All of the above governors, Senators, and congress people are in the age range of my children if I had any. I believe these young people are going to breathe fresh air into the Republican party and may very well end up tipping the Republicans towards more Constitutional government once these people and their success starts to take root with the established Republicans. Some of these old establishment types are too old to keep running year after year and will have to give way to a whole new crowd of young, brave men and women.
Perhaps there is hope at some point when we finally can take our country back to its’ original foundations which to this day still are the best of any country on this planet.
So electing good senators and congress critters in this upcoming election is just as important as the president. There are some very good candidates ready to take the places of the rhinos. I would like to see that happen.
But, for now, we must get Obama out. 4 more years of his policies and we will be a 3rd world country because that is where he wants us. He is anti colonial and he believes that America and its’ wealth is bad. He does not understand the idea of our country. He does not know that success is what we all strive for and want for our children. He wants our successes and our resources spread around the world. He does not understand the ideal of the immigrants who came here because of the American idea and ideal. He is not a true American.
