    OPEN LETTER TO THE R.N.C. AND CONGRESS




    June 11, 2017



    To: Republican National Committee


    Ronna Mc Daniel

    Chairwoman



    CC: President Trump




    Re: Elected Republican Senators and Representatives in congress.



    We periodically receive correspondence from the R.N.C. to support Republican politicians and contribute to the advancement of the desires of the citizen’s who elected them.




    All political parties send out their wonderfully scripted surveys touting that our opinion counts. That support is needed to further our wishes via Republican party causes or any other money raising reason that we can digest.



    In my early years I was a member of the Democratic Party. After the behavior of President Johnson, President Carter, and the Democratic Party, I switched to the Republican Party. I stayed a Republican even with the Nixon resignation scandal.



    As time wore on the congressional house and senate began to morph into an exclusive “Old Boy D.C. Network”. Perks and benefits for politicians went well beyond what is reasonable and have since become vulgar. The original intent of their job to represent the U.S. Citizen and their constituency was lost along the way.



    Today an elected congress person makes millions of dollars in perks and side benefits, enjoys lifetime golden parachute benefits, wields to much individual power and appears to be only concerned with protecting personal wealth and power to the exclusion of all else.



    Congressional members even EXEMPT themselves from laws and bills they have enacted that will be imposed on all tax paying citizens.



    True American citizen patriots of this country and what it stands for are fed up with all of the Washington D.C., State and local government self interested power hungry politicians that are only in it for their own personal gain.



    This has led to the introduction of the term R.I.N.O. (Republicans In Name Only). The Washington D.C. Republican good old boy network is there to protect the power of and increases the wealth of their elected officials.



    In the meantime, the D.C. Democratic Party has sunk to new lows of criminal felonious acts and deeds by persons in the previous administration of Barack Hussien Obama. None of these law breakers will be brought to justice as a result of the protection that the D.C. politico’s cloak themselves with.



    I enlisted in the Armed Services of this country and did my duty. I have worked and paid taxes my entire life. In my era it was a shame and disgraceful to expect others to support you if you were able bodied and capable of working at a job no matter what party you belonged to.



    In the past, love of country, patriotism, moral fiber, nuclear families, marriage and Christian values were held in high esteem. This and much more have been diminished by the left wing push of special interest minority groups like L.G.B.T., B.L.M., Rainbow Coalition, Socialist Party, Globalization, Inc., Planned Parenthood, Pro Sharia Law, Pro Illegal immigration, La Raza and on and on and on.



    Our constitution protects minorities and special interest from abuse by the majority and has proven successful at doing that. BUT, this United States Democratic Republic is ruled by the will of the majority and not the minority. There has been a reversal of the roles! Minorities now dictate to the majority. Non productive citizens, illegal immigrants, and minority special interest groups force their beliefs and wants upon the majority by spinning the intent of the U.S. Constitution to suit themselves and their goals.



    The list is endless of the things that are slowly destroying the greatest nation that the world has ever seen. But the real crime is that our very own elected officials have miserably failed us. They forgot what the real meaning of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights was about and ended up corrupted by the ease of gaining power and money as an elected official.



    The education system across our nation has become a socialistic brainwashing entity that teaches nothing about our countries great sacrifices, generosity, and heritage. Instead they are only taught the mistakes that were made by a young growing country with a never before tried Constitutional government inflated to the point of Anti-U.S.A. dogma.



    Then along comes a breath of fresh air…a business man who does not carry the baggage of past “deals” with lobbyists, special interest groups, minority groups, big money donors, allegiance to the R.I.N.O.s, or any other political party special interest group.



    This man is not like 90% of elected officials, who are lawyers by trade. This man is an example of what can be achieved by hard work. He is a silent philanthropist who gives without seeking recognition. He loves his country and believes in the founding principles of this country. He DOES NOT need the job of President of the United States and all the terrible things that can happen to someone who runs for office against the good old boy government establishment. But he wants to see this country great again and throws his hat into the ring. He declares as a Republican and the Republican Party laughs and ignores the upstart.



    The only unbiased person at the R.N.C was Reince Priebus, who told the Republican Party that they must adhere to their own rules and accept the will of the constituency that voted for Donald Trump as their candidate. The R.N.C. reluctantly half-ass decides to support the duly elected Republican candidate (Donald Trump) for president of the United States.



    Fate had given the Republicans a people’s candidate in Donald Trump and they almost screwed that up as well. Within the R.N.C. a “Never Trump Group” is immediately formed by the R.I.N.O. operated sector of the Republican Party! Even after Priebus tried to show a sign of unity within the R.N.C., the R.I.N.O. network and “Never Trump” group tried to change the rules of the party to eliminate Trump as the chosen candidate at the Republican Convention!




    Within the Republican party there are splinter groups that would rather see our country fall into oblivion before losing their grip on “The good old boy DC network”. In my humble opinion, the Republican Party is up to its neck in dung with R.I. N. O. s. and the like.



    On the other side of the aisle, the Democratic Party has slid well below the D.C. pile of dung. The Republican Party and Congress better wake up or the dung will rise over their heads as well.



    The Republicans had control of congress in the past and did not perform. They made immigration reform promises for over fourty years. They promised a balanced budget amendment. They promised to support our military and veterans but after decades there is nothing to show for it.



    Now that Donald Trump is President the democrats and special interest groups of the D.C. beltway want to blockade, disrupt, and leak false news. The anti Trump machine (supported by the previous corrupt administration of Barack Hussein Obama) goes into high gear to prevent the President from keeping his campaign promises and enacting the peoples agenda.



    President Trump promises to remove all persons who do not perform their jobs under the guidelines of the U.S. Constitution. A promise that will remove persons who leak government secrets, persons who are loyalists to anything other than the citizens of the United States and its laws. He promises reforms that were made by all political parties for decades. such as immigration reform. But the best of all, is the promise to drain the D.C. swamp.



    The draining of the swamp includes closing duplicate agencies doing the same job, removing outdated agencies, removal of special interest agencies that are used to back special interest lobby groups, and in general get rid of the cancer of corruption in government, or at the least, excise a huge chunk of it.



    This is what the Republicans have done in congress before President Trump:



    Failed to represent the people’s will for decades (spineless in congress).

    Failed to stop special interest groups and R.I.N.O.interference against the will of the people.

    Failed to maintain campaign promise’s made to the people.

    Failed to do the people’s will and act when in control of both houses of congress.

    Failed to support Donald Trumps candidacy or to work with him…theres more!



    I am seriously thinking of going Independent (as if the R.N.C. gives a damn) as my trust and belief in political parties has gone to hell based on the actions of those elected who call themselves conservatives or constitutionalist’s from any party.



    This is a representative democracy that exists BY AND FOR THE PEOPLE as clearly stated by our founders. The only person I see attempting to do just that is President Donald Trump.



    I have enclosed your questionnaire with the same old rah rah questions to get me to contribute to the R.N.C. I will contribute to the party of my President when I believe that they truly support him and are actively ridding themselves of R.I.N.O. candidates and those who only seek office for personal profit and power.



    I will send financial support to any group or entity that supports the original intent of the founders of this great nation using the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights as my guide. I will financially support any person or group interested in protecting the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights and United States citizens while securing our borders and maintaining the best military in the world.




    Where have all the Real American Patriots gone?


    President Trump, we consider ourselves real patriots and we stand with you.



    Our best Regards,

    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    Registered Voters – Citizens – Patriots



    P.S.

    God bless these United States of America, and

    God bless our President, Donald Trump

    I (and many others I know) have already left the GOP and those sell out assholes like George Bush, John McCain and the rest. People talk about a shrinking GOP, it's certainly not because of Trump!

    Except that it might not really be shrinking. I suspect very few folks are "independent," if "independent" means that sometimes they vote Dem, sometimes Rep. My guess is that most "independents" typically vote right or left, but like calling themselves "independent" because that sounds better.

    In many cases, calling ones self independent does not equate to making it sound better.

    In fact, it is also a way of stating that you will select what and whom you wish to support by employing your own intellect to make the decision rather than following a scripted course of actions and choices laid out for you by the political party you claim affiliation with.

    There is also the discussion of monetary support for the causes you believe in and want to support. Political parties and special interest groups employ massive mail and telephone fund raising through continual surveys that are all preaching to the choir, and imploring people to contribute to the perpetual causes that they never really act upon. Or, there is the impending doom if there is not enough money to defend or support some specific issue that strangely reappears in regular fashion over and over through the years.

    People are fed up with the nanny state, immigration abuse, dual standards, corruption and business as usual at all levels of government from local to federal. All the power hungry abusers come from one or more of the major political parties that currently exist and there is enough corruption and good old boy networking to go around for all current political parties.

    President Trump and this new ground swell movement he has created lends itself well to ALL citizens of ANY political party affiliation to reconsider the agenda of their selected political parties and whether they have lived up to the principles outlined for elected government officials in the U.S. Constitution and the creed of equal justice for all citizens.

    By reason of this new reconsideration of what political path a citizen wishes to take, the choice of looking at all sides of an issue as an "INDEPENDENT" non parry affiliated person and making ones own educated decisions regarding what political stance one will take becomes appealing to a great number of citizens. Thus becoming a proclaimed political independent...i.e., not a member of any political party calling themselves the Independent Party.

    Also, consider that for a lot of us, at one time by being a Democrat in our respective district, one could vote in the Demo primary, where the eventual winner was chosen.

    Now, the primary ballot lists all the candidates, the voter chooses (open primary). The top two face off in November if no one gets over 50%.

    You're basically making my point.

    I don't for a minute think you're an "independent," i.e. that you've voted for the same number of Reps and Dems for president, but you like calling yourself that. Our system isn't to "vote for the best man/woman." The party with the most Senators controls the committees, regardless of who the "best" man/woman is. If Dems get to 51 Senators, you get a very different SCOTUS than if they only have 49--not because it's impossible to get Dem votes for a great candidate, but that great candidate won't even get a hearing.

    So posture all you want about "scripted course of actions," if you are truly "independent," then you aren't "employing your intellect." A RINO that gives Reps control of the Senate is better than a conservative Dem (let's pretend there is such a thing) that doesn't. A true conservative knows his agenda is better advanced by having those committees.

    My experience, most who claim to be "independent"are factually liberal demorats, .
    ...just think that claiming to be independent somehow elevates their status...."you can't call me biased, I am independent." Sort of like claiming to independent because you once voted for a Repuplican for dog catcher....as an example we have seen

    Being unable to vote for a candidate of your choice to run for any office (such as Donald Trump running as a Republican Candidate) because of your stated political party affiliation in the primary election of candidates, in my humble opinion, is a violation of a citizens independent non party affiliation right to vote for whom one wishes to be their candidate without regard to "declared" party affiliation. Further, it seems to be a rule created more for political party control of who the candidate will be that represents their party's platform as opposed to an open choice of candidates form all parties running for the same office.

    As such, I agree that becoming an independent non party affiliated voter is a drawback one must consider with the current primary election rules in place.

    I imagine an independent voter could declare a party affiliation every year that coincided with his choice of candidate for that particular office?

    As a independent with a brain, the person would probably vote for a conservative Republican Party candidate every time. This would occur because what you so correctly stated would have been thought out by the individual himself and not mandated by or because it is his party affiliation.

    I despise RINO's, but have staunchly supported Republican Party candidates for the simple reason of maintaining a more conservative majority in congress that will support President Trump (whom I voted for) and the agenda he was elected to provide.

    You may be correct Scotty, but that is not the type of Independent Voter I am trying to make a point about. I will try harder to make myself clearer.

    There should be no registered independent option. You should be registered in no party affiliation. I am not an independent and do not want to change my registration out of convenience but it makes me very conflicted to be a registered Republican. I hate those guys.

    So you always vote Republican, ,but pretend you're "independent" for some odd need you have. It's illogical, but if it makes you feel smarter...but in our system, you don't "vote for the man," you vote for the party. To do otherwise (except in some unusual circumstances) is silly...even Aimee-like.

    An incoming president makes something like 3,000 appointments, hundreds of judges, etc. Even if you don't like the guy, the odds that you'll like the appointments of the other party better are not great. Until our system changes to a Euro-type parliamentary system, that's the deal.

    You totally misunderstand what I am trying to express. Probably, my fault for not being clear enough in what I am trying to convey.

    But, your statements of always voting Republican while claiming to be independent for some odd need and being Aimee-like are insulting and below the standard I have seen from you in other posts.

    Demeaning someone and insulting them during an exchange of ideas and thoughts serves no purpose and detracts from the exchange.

    If you are insulted or demeaned by someone during any exchange you then have the right to do the same in turn or your back on them and walk away.

    I do not recall insulting you by insinuation or in any other fashion during our exchanges thus far.

    Perhaps it was a bit too insulting. Sorry about that.

    Not sorry about the gist of the comment, however. Why the need to pretend you're "independent," when you clearly aren't? Seems like an odd need to me. Just pick a side and admit it. There's too much at stake to try to be a purist. Without RINOs , there's no Judge Gorsuch.

    Independent thinking...Not Independent Political Party.

    RINOS's will soon be outed for the corrupt politicians that they are and only voted for Gorsuch because it benefits them in the mid term election or to protect their positions of power greed and self preservation.

    I THINK independently and make voting choices that best serve, I.M.H.O., the mandates of the U.S. Constitution and the legal American Citizen...with no concern for the name of the party that happens to support those ideals.

    It took Libertarians, Independents, cross over Democrats and non party affiliated citizens to elect President Trump as our president. It was their INDEPENDENT thinking that made up their decisions, not what political party Trump belonged to.

    I agree to disagree and you can have your opinions as well I have mine. But, since this seems to be a revolving door scenario, I will respectfully bow out of this conversation at this time.
