Why Ronald Reagan?
Thank you to everyone sent in responses to the RealRepublicanMajority.org blog, commercial and website, we appreciate your comments. Some of you have asked us “Why Ronald Reagan?”
We aim to shift the Party’s focus to the core agenda that is best for the American people. Now is the time for us to unite under the “Big Tent” as members of the GOP and start forwarding the ideals that are best for our nation, and to discontinue the focus on a misguided social agenda that is not supported by a majority of Republicans. Why are members of the GOP focusing on an exclusionary agenda that concentrates on select social issues when the bigger picture is something that all Republicans can support for the good of our country?
Ronald Reagan’s leadership illustrates what can be accomplished when the focus is on the core issues at hand. Reagan, who did not support choice, did not choose to use it as a wedge issue like Falwell, Dobson and Reed on the far-right are doing today. Reagan aimed to build consensus and broaden the “Big Tent”, he supported common sense Republicans like Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, and focused on the issues that were best for our country.
Today we ask you, as members of the Real Republican Majority—Who are your Real Republican Leaders? Who are your elected officials that espouse the qualities of a real Republican? What leader, on a local, state or national level, can you look to as forwarding the true ideals of the GOP and forwarding the issues that are best for our nation over extremist agendas?
