Republican party platform

Republican Party Platform


    For the past two weeks we have been reading over the Republican party platform. There is an immense amount of information on what this party plans to do if they are elected as the presidential party. Here is a brief summary about the platform. We, for the most part, agree with this party and here is our take on their views.

      The first thing that the party addresses is the restoration of the jobs that were lost by the current administration. They will pursue free market policies which they believe are,“…the surest way to boost employment and create jobs and economic prosperity for all.”,. They want to protect the small businesses because they are the main driving force in the race of technological advancements. With this protection the small businesses and entrepreneurs will be capable of improvements that will better the economic status. The Party also proposes that we lower our spending on unnecessary things and ineffective programs. We agree with this system of job creation.

    The next point that they address was that the Obama administration has veered away from a constitutional government and put into play laws and regulations that are unconstitutional. For example, the legalization of gay marriage and the enforcement of abortion( through the HHS mandate). The Republican party Supports traditional marriage and they are against abortion. They also support a government that runs under substantial influence of the constitution and everything that it entails. We agree that our government should be run as our founding fathers intended. W, also, think that abortion and gay marriage are unlawful and is against one of our God given and unalienable rights, life!

    The domestic agriculture is a large provider of food, jobs, and more then $135 billion annually, and is very self sufficient, but it rely on foreign industry for fertilizer. On the other hand the energy industry depends on foreign providers for resources such as oil.. The want the energy industry to be more self sustained and less reliant on others. The Republican party feels that the energy industry should be more domestic. One way that they see to get more domestic energy is with coal. It is cheap, and it is abundant. They also feel that the environment is best taken care of when it is under private stewardship because they are better able to address the problem since they live so near it.

    Next the Republican addresses Medicare, Medicaid, and Immigration. We started with Medicare and Medicaid. The first thing they said was that they feel it is important to save these programs for the future generation, but it needs to change it’s fiscal situation. They are currently unsustainable. In 2010 they spent over $520 and are expected to double by 2019 and they already have over $37 trillion in unfunded obligations. However, it is deeper than just financial. The problem is that there is to much poor health care and that is worse than it sounds because it prolongs affliction and therefore making it worse. The cause of most of these problems is life style. The Republicans believe that Medicare and Medicaid should assure all their patients that they will get the treatment they need, whether they are expecting mothers or the elderly. The first step that they are going to take is to move away form the current situation and make the 2 programs more self reliant. We agree with what the Republican party has to say and wants to do with these 2 programs

    Next ,we looked at immigration. The Republican party recognize that immigrants are making large contributions to the nation. They also believe that “Illegal immigration undermines those benefits and affects U.S. Workers.” They want a two-sided fence that was planned to be built,in 2006 and they say, “… federal funding should be denied to sanctuary cities that violate federal law and endanger their own citizens, and federal funding should be denied to universities that provide in-state tuition rates to illegal aliens, in open defiance of federal law.”,. This is one of the only subjects in which we do not see eye to eye on. We believe there should be an open border and the words “illegal emigrant ” should not exist in America. With open borders more jobs will be made and those who cant find jobs will go somewhere else. More jobs means more income and more income means less debt.

    The American family is very valuable and the Republicans believe it should be protected along with traditional marriage, education, and health care benefits. They believe that marriage is important and that there are many benefits including the fact that children are more likely to attend college and be more emotionally stable. In turn they are are more likely to get good jobs and raise good children. They are also less likely to take part in criminal activities, abuse drugs and alcohol, and get pregnant out of marriage. We agree with the Republican party’s stance on traditional marriage.

The next section that the Republican party addresses is about education. They state that the U.S. spends about $10,000 per pupil per year in public school. That means that we spend $550 billion a year. Government has finally discovered that money is not the solution for educational problems. The government has spent more then $2 trillion on elementary and secondary education with no large improvements( the African-American graduation rate is 59% and the Hispanic rate is 63%). The republican party proposes that we increase our focus on the teachers and the home life. They believe that the schools should focus more on math,science, reading, history and geography. Also they feel that the schools should build a kind of transparency so that the public and the parents can see what they are teaching their children and how they are benefiting the community.

    They also address the problem in healthcare. The first problem that they address is the fact that most health issues are the result of personal habit. They want to support self responsibility. They also believe that everyone should have healthcare available to them. The Republican party wants to give the states the power to regulate the local insurance so as to help the smaller local government help the people they know best. They also want to create a free market for the healthcare system so to lower cost. They feel that the insurance company should always make sure that the people knows what they are paying for and how much it costs before they under go an operation. They think that the insurance company should be able to provide insurance for those family that are always moving for work. We agree with Republican party’s stance on healthcare and education and family life.

    The last group of problems that the platform notes is on our national security. The Republican Party finds that the current national security strategy as all but failed. The flaws in the current strategy are that it is a, “budget-constrained blueprint that, if fully implemented, will diminish the capabilities of our Armed Forces. The strategy significantly increases the risk of future conflict by declaring to our adversaries that we will no longer maintain the forces necessary to fight and win more than one conflict at a time. It relies on the good intentions and capabilities of international organizations to justify constraining American military readiness. Finally, the strategy subordinates our national security interests to environmental, energy, and international health issues, and elevates “climate change” to the level of a “severe threat” equivalent to foreign aggression.”,. The Republican party thinks that the U.S. has a important role in the history of the world and that it is strong and able to defend it’s self against any threat. By the failed strategy and in addition of closing down some of our missile defense operations (which Obama has been doing we) are in a sense weakening our country and if the time comes to defend our selves we will be less likely to succeed.

    The Republican Party wants, if elected, to reenforce our alliance with country such as South Asia, Russia, Taiwan, China, and Europe. Also they want to become trading partners with theses countries. Having a closer relationship with theses countries will provide more security for America and her partners. Some of the countries like Korea have been required to shut down nuclear plants to ensure security for our country. We agree that America should have a closer relationship with her fellow countries and that we need more security not as a threat to other counties but as a safety precaution. It is better to be safe that sorry or as the Boy Scout of America slogan says “be prepared”

    Overall we agree with this party. Their stance on traditional marriage and abortion especially. The only thing that we don’t agree with is the immigrants. This is our take on the Republican party platform.

One thought on “Republican party platform

  1. Dave Francis

    When the federal government waives the sovereignty rights unique to each state, something is really amiss in Washington. This especially highlighted that this administration has gone after any state that tries to enforce its immigration laws. Arizona, Georgia and Alabama have been sued by the Eric Holder in a Department of Justice completely out of control. Since the exemption of the 1986 Immigration Control and Reform Act that designated that employers who hire foreign workers over legitimate citizens and permanent residence should be given hefty fines and possible imprisonment, only the Obama government has actually carried out this policy; this has even waned to a crawl. Neither political party has placed illegal immigration as a series threat to the 8.3 percent of U.S. workers seeking work or just given up.

    The driving undercurrent is the Liberals who are still mobilizing for open borders, no matter the disastrous consequences of America. They are trying to force a Socialist agenda down the throats of the middle class. There has always been opposition to closing the border completely, which has included the failure of the 2006 Secure fence Act. ICE has completely ignored Sanctuary cities and even states, which seem to think they are above the law. I haven’t heard California being held accountable for not taking into custody the overwhelming number of illegal aliens settled there.

    Here are a few of the paramount concerns that can be altered by the TEA PARTY LEADERSHIP:

    1. The TEA PARTY can force a vote on the ‘Legal Workforce Act’ (E-Verify) and enact it as mandatory in every business nationwide. Those who feel they are not accountable will be looking at hefty fines, loss of assets and even prison. All those who ignore the I-9 audits in not implementing the computer to detect illegal aliens in the workplace will be sanctioned?

    2. The TEA PARTY will force a vote on the ‘Birthright Citizenship Act’ concluding once and for all, that pregnant women can no longer gain citizenship through a misguided loophole for a child, just by slipping past Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE) at the border or over staying a visa, leading ultimately to yet another ‘Blanket Amnesty’. What about American teenagers, who have been pushed out of jobs that were the monopoly for our kids a couple of decades back? Absolutely—because of Birthright Citizenship for any illegal alien parent who slips past our borders, we now have the massive problem caused over decades of the Dream children. If there was no free citizenship (an amendment to this law) these children would never be here and no DREAM ACT. The parents should be held accountable and investigated by ICE and deported. The issue is deportation doesn’t work, because they return? Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on MediCal, whose births were paid for by taxpayers.

    Only true and fully operational way to halt this travesty of our laws is cut off work with THE LEGAL WORKFORCE ACT and place employers in prison and in addition to this law, demand that the amendment to the 14th amendment, so baby cannot become a U.S. citizen, without at least one parent being a U.S. citizen themselves. The alternative future is, where we have the same multibillion dollar issue endless, with further DREAM ACTs and a through the ceiling amnesty. Nobody can blame these children for the fact their parents brought them to this country illegally, and in fact the parents are not strictly to blame. It’s been a year of eroding the immigration laws since 1986, which shows the government is entirely to blame for this financial chaos. California with its own huge financial deficits is likely to give Dream Act scholars a drivers licenses; what’s next free tuition, when our own kids are still paying off their educational mortgages on their young lives?

    Both major political parties wants NO true end to illegal immigration, but the millions of citizens and residents in the TEA PARTY will insure that citizens and lawful immigrants always get first priority—not pandering to foreign nationals. Incidentally—readers should go to and then judge for you, if Obama is Liberal friends in the press are concealing the truth?

    ATTN: The TEA PARTY will be safeguarding the nationwide election procedure, watching for non-citizens voting in November. With the all out war on voter rights, it’s obvious to most Americans that certain groups of the entrenched Socialists in the Democratic party hate the idea of voters having to show proof that they are a citizen? The ACORN organization opened a Pandora’s Box when the election agencies in eleven states revealed significant numbers of non citizens, felons, dead people and even illegal aliens were voting in not only local elections, but the last presidential cycle. Incompetence or just plain election officials failing to purge election rolls of thousands of deceased, migrating Americans to another state and non citizens. Every radical group including the contentious Department of Justice has drawn their claws to just keep laws as they are? However–America for two three decades have been under the bombardment of poverty pouring in from across the world, with limited means to halt the human avalanche. America has always needed immigrants of the Stem variety (Science, technology, engineers and Mathematics) of the highest professional standards, but we cannot assimilate foreigners who break the law to begin with, then demand full rights as regular citizens.

    These people are draining hundreds of billions of dollars from state treasuries, because the federal courts say we must give them welfare. In the prior years amongst the illegal desperate migrants and immigrants have arrived the criminals. Hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars have been appropriated to seal them in prisons. Arizona, California, Nevada, Texas, has been badly damaged by the infestation with from south of the border, the majority looking for a free handout. It’s impossible to calculate the unimagined costs in just these states, backed by the Liberal-Marxist intensity in the state assemblies. Find time to achieve your own research on the Internet and learn the true costs, statistics and corruption that permeates from Washington and your home state. With both parties and no penetration by the TEA PARTY leadership, nothing will change. Under Obama as of now the Democrats are freely giving out food stamps to just about everybody. The poor that includes a large overload of illegal aliens get free health care, education for their children and a good source of other programs, which American workers have accepted for years.

    In Washington it’s Quid Pro Quo (a favor for a favor) that will never produce anything different for the common man or women. The readers shouldn’t listen to the Liberal advocates in the national press as the lies are still coming with full force for the gullible. The TEA PARTY is not just for white populace, but every one of different Conservatives in thousands of chapters is a mixture of legal blacks, Hispanics, Asians and Caucasians and other races Learn your real future under Obama where “Freeloaders “the parasites will live of the hard pressed taxpayer. Learn more about Illegal Immigration and its costs at NumbersUSA, Federation of American Immigration reform. Learn about the corruption in every state, municipality and in the federal government at Judicial Watch. Make your own assessment and hopefully do the right thing for your family and this nation, when you vote this November.
