Reagan Wisdom for Super Tuesday

Posted by Sal on February 4, 2008

As many of us go to the polls this Tuesday (myself included) to vote for the GOP Presidential Nomination, I want to present two quotes from Ronald Reagan from the 1970s that ring very true today, courtesy of Rush Limbaugh.  

I’m impatient with those Republicans who — after the last election — rushed into print saying we must broaden the base of our party, when what they meant was to fuzz up and blur even more the differences between ourselves and our opponents.  –Ronald Reagan, 1975

And: 

Don’t give up your ideals, don’t compromise, don’t turn to expedience — and don’t, for heaven’s sake, having seen the inner workings of the watch — get cynical. –Ronald Reagan, 1976.

And with that, not much else needs to be said.

    So you aren’t voting for any of them?

    The Big Tent theory is, frankly, poppycock! New Jersey has attempted to institute the Big Tent in their Republican Party but it has been an absolute failure. There has not been a statewide Republican win an election since 1998 (and that was a “moderate”). The Republican Party in NJ is now a rudderless joke until a savvy Conservative (Bret Schundler doesn’t count because he’s not savvy) takes the healm.

    If the Republican Party and their voters nominate John McCain, the party will be divided and factioned…we will be seeing the sad story of NJ on a national level.
