The Old Guard

The old guard-

As I sat and heard speeches last week at our County assembly- the theme was ‘I have been in the game, I have held the office below the office I am now running for and it’s my turn.’
This was the same stuff I heard when my dad ran for United States Congress.
‘It’s my turn-I have earned this!’

Earned what exactly? What have you earned? This sense of entitlement runs deep in the Republican Party. Jumping from public office to public office declaring your service to the same ole delegates.
I actually heard a guy talk about how you don’t vote someone ‘new’ in, you vote the ‘back-up quarterback’ in (using trendy sports analogy-really got the majority of the white-haired voters riled up!)
I talked to another delegate and she told me how annoyed she was that young republican voters don’t want to be called ‘republican’s’ they want to be called ‘conservatives.’ As I heard her talk…I thought -ya, I am one of those young voters!
Being the youngest in the room at the age of 32…I see the problem…the question is how do we fix
 It?
You see we, the younger Republican/Conservatives have watched this country fall fast-this happened while Republicans-the establishment-continued voting in to office the ‘same old same old….’
We believe in the Conservative principals but not the political crap that we are seeing from our own politicians. Both Dems and Republicans have overreached their hands in our daily lives. We want our freedom back, we want men and women who are not jumping from public office to public office. We want people that know how the world works! Most people in office don’t even know how much a gallon of milk costs or have the ability to relate to the young businessman or young mom…they haven’t a clue… 

Let’s talk about about ‘earning’ it shall we….
I think this concept is what’s dooming us!
‘Earned it’-ughh!
How about the small business man that knows how the private sector works, who has the ability to create something out of nothing? Who has been successful time and time again over the past 30years-I think he has an earned a vote!
You see it’s this narrow minded way of thinking that repulses me. It’s this clicky high school mentality……ummm…this is ‘our group and we like it this way mmmkkay.’

Well you know what….I say enough! I say we begin to infiltrate this incestual group think!
Why are we letting the “mean” girls depict the direction in which our country heads?

The old way…clearly is not working! We need to get involved we need to fight for a change!
Get involved-don’t let the old ‘we’ve done it this way for 100yrs’ continue!
