Independent American Party - The Conservative Alternative

This Blogger has been a registered Republican since voting for Ronald Reagan in the election of 1980.  With one exception, when I voted for Ross Perot, to punish George Bush, the elder, for violating his "Read My Lips, No New Taxes Pledge", I have always voted Republican, even if it meant holding my nose to vote for a RINO, as was the case four years ago when I voted for our current Governor to prevent Rory Reid, Dirty Harry's son, from becoming the Governor of Nevada.  

With this election and early voting, I will never do that again, no matter how bad the Socialist alternative.  We have just been duped too many times to continue voting for RINO'S, that once elected vote and act as Socialists.  In Nevada, we have the option of voting None of the Above for statewide offices.  I had determined that I would do just that, rather than vote for our RINO Pro-Choice Governor Brian Sandoval and for various other RINO'S on the ballot. 

However, before doing so, I noticed that there were candidates on the ballot labeled as the Independent American Party.  I went on their website to check out their party platform to discover that this really is the Conservative Party of America.   Since I have always labeled myself a Common Sense Conservative, both in this publication and during my radio show, I found that with just a few exceptions, their beliefs are my beliefs.  I would be stronger on National Defense than the IAP appears to be and a bit more liberal related to Civil Unions for Gays; but otherwise their support for limited Constitutional government, free market capitalism, lower taxes, less regulations, protecting free speech and religion and gun ownership rights, the right to life and securing our border is right in line with all of my Conservative views.

As a result, I did not have to vote None of the Above, rather than vote for various RINOS.  If there was no Republican Conservative alternative, I voted Independent American Party.   I keep saying that if the Republican Party is not the Conservative Party of America, it has no reason for being and therefore, it will be no more.   A Republican Party led by John Boehner and Mitch McConnell has no future.  If the Republicans do not regain the Senate in the November, 2014 election in a wave election, given Obama's unpopularity, failed Socialist Schemes, the Terrorist threat we face around the world, all the Obama Scandals and all the Socialist seats being contested in Red States carried by both McCain and Romney, it will be because Conservatives stayed home out of disgust for the National Republican Party, run by Establishment Country Club Republicans, including Boehner and McConnell, that many Conservatives see as RINO'S.  

If Republicans can't win under the current ideal circumstances, then they can't win at all.  This election may be a turning point, one way or another.  The Conservative Base of the Republican Party is restless.  We are looking for leaders that support and act on Conservative principles, as an alternative to more big government Socialism, that is bankrupting and destroying our country.   We will no longer vote for business as usual and Republicans feeding at the trough, just like their Socialist comrades, that have been in office for decades. 

Compromise that advances more Socialist Creep is unacceptable.  The only Compromise that is acceptable are those actions that push back 100 years of Socialist Creep.  If the election in November does not produce a solid Republican Majority in Congress, then it is time for a new Conservative Party to emerge.  With a little tweaking, that political party could be the Independent American Party.
