Republicans forgot about Classic Liberalism
It is ironic that the very principles of John Locke, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton and the and foundation of our country are being destroyed by the very people who profess that they want to protect this country.
Classic Liberalism is the very foundation of our country. It has been perverted by both parties for the sake of ideology and power. In the case of the Republicans they have moved away from Classic Liberalism in such away that the very Founding Fathers would not recognize the abuse of power for the sake of business and laissez-economics. They use economics as a pretext for war, social change and interference with Constitutional rights.
They speak of limited government all the while using religion, family values, economics as tools to suspend or modify the Constitution. They have in fact violated or will violate both individual rights and economic freedom in the name of security, terrorism, or national interests. War is in direct contrast to Classic Liberalism.
The Republicans are not the only culprits in this scenario. The Democrats are complicit and in some cases a danger to economic freedom. Conservatives in today’s world are a danger to the basic human, natural and the rights guarranted under our U.S. Constitution.. The government does not gives our rights we have them from birth.
It is time that the American people wake up to the politics as usual. No matter the party as long as we elect the same people thru the same process the ideologies and language will not change.
We must return to Classic Liberalism as it was meant and defined by our Founding Fathers and philosophers of their day.
