There's a great opportunity to tell the Republican National Committee what you think -- We need all mainstream Republicans to respond ASAP!
Real Republicans from across the country have received a new survey from the Republican National Committee. The RNC is requesting opinions about the national agenda and future GOP priorities. Not surprisingly, a focus on 'morality' issues and a 'pro-life' agenda are included heavily in this survey.
As mainstream Republicans, we support an inclusive GOP that does NOT focus on divisive issues. We want the Party to get back to business and back to our core principles as the champion of personal freedom and limited government intrusion.
The RNC needs to hear from REAL Republicans like you about the harm their divisive social tactics and the exclusionary Platform has done to the GOP. This is the time to make your voice heard - let's get the message through to Chairman Michael Steele and the rest of the RNC. Click here to fill out the survey.
Please read the responses below and feel free to use them or customize them for your response to the survey.
For question 3:
"What are the weaknesses of the Republican Party?"
Emphasis on divisive social wedge issues
Pandering to the social extreme of the Party
Exclusionary tactics that drive away moderates
For question 6:
"What can the Republican Party do to earn and maintain your trust?"
The tactic of using divisive and private wedge social issues such as abortion is driving away voters. Women and moderate Republicans are not drawn to this incendiary and exclusionary tactic, and I feel that it violates the tenets of the GOP.
Be more inclusive and welcoming to socially moderate, fiscal conservatives. 240,000 voters switched from the GOP to the Democratize Party just last year in the very key swing state of
Concentrate on small government and fiscal conservatism, not issues like abortion. This clearly isn't working- let's drop the extremism and bring back small government, personal responsibility, and fiscal conservatism- the real strengths of the GOP.
I'm a Republican because I want my rights protected and government kept out of my private business and decisions. I am saddened to see that the Republican Party has become so extreme on social issues that I cannot support it any further. For the Party to truly earn my vote and trust back, it must show a more inclusionary face and bring back the Big Tent.
Again, RMC strongly encourages each and every one of our members to make their voices heard. Now is the time to act: fill out the survey now.
