The Best Lines from the Republican Debate

Published

on

Yes, the candidates want to connect with the voters with a first impression that will help fuel their campaign. But they know they will have many months of impressions. Style is important, but they want solutions. So what will viewers remember about what the candidates actually said?

Here is a list of the “lines” worth running on in the months ahead:
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis had positions that many felt helped him win the night:

“We must reverse Bidenomics so that middle class families have a chance of succeeding again. We cannot succeed as a country if you are working hard and you can’t afford groceries, a car, or home.”

“When we had two of these district attorneys in Florida elected with Soros funding who said they wouldn’t do their job, I removed them from their post. They are gone. As President, we are going to go after all of these people because they are hurting the quality of life and they are victimizing innocent people in every corner of this country. It will stop when I get into office.”

“We’ve got to focus on your future. We’ve got to focus on reversing the decline of our country. I learned in the military…you focus on the mission above all else. You can’t get distracted. So republicans, we’ve got to look forward. We’ve got to make sure we are bringing the message that will win in 2024.”

Entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy took a number of hits for his lack of political experience, but he made a winning point on the importance of school choice:

“We have a crisis of achievement. Let’s shut down the head of the snake, the Department of Education. Kick that $80 billion and put it in the hands of parents across this country. This is the civil rights issue of our time. Allow any parent to choose where they send their kids to school. End the teachers union at the local level. Allow public schools to compete.”

Former Vice President Mike Pence was a bit condescending, but he still had some points worth sharing:

“We are going to close the federal Department of Education, block grant all of that funding back to the states with a growing economy, educational choice, and law enforcement, we will bring our cities back.”

Former South Carolina governor and US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley had a winning, natural style that scored some important policy points and took on Trump’s candidacy:

“They need to stop the spending. They need to stop the borrowing. They need to eliminate the earmarks that Republicans brought back in, and they need to make sure understand that these are taxpayer dollars, not their dollars.”

“What the people will tell you is that it’s time for a new generational, conservative leader. We have to look at the fact that three-quarters of Americans do not want a rematch between Trump and Biden. We have to face the fact that Trump is the most disliked politician in America. We can’t win a general election that way.”

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie shared views on illegal aliens that many Americans feel:

“We to stop any more from coming…. We have to enforce the law. We have to make sure that those who come here illegally are not rewarded for being here illegally. We so many people from around the world waiting in line to come here and pursue the American Dream. They have been waiting.”

South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott made a strong case against Biden’s alternative energy disaster:

“Why would we put ourselves in a disadvantage, devastating our own economy. Lets bring our jobs home.”

In short, each candidate had moments worth sharing. There is no question that any of them would be better than President Biden. Trump did not help himself by not attending. America got to see that there are alternatives worthy of our support. Bring on the next debate; we have more to learn.

America No More…

Published

on

After watching with over a hundred others the newly released movie, Civil War, I left the theater stunned, and I was not alone. Was it a good movie? Just a deeply unsettling one! Could it really happen? You don’t even want to imagine it! But with Biden’s assault on America continuing and Trump reemerging as the favored GOP candidate, the American division is growing. More and more citizens are getting angrier as their standard of living is in jeopardy and illegals are getting benefits citizens can only dream of.

Spoiling the movie’s plot is never appropriate, but when Western forces from Texas, Florida, and even California take on the elected President, the country is left in a civil war. We watch as desensitized media professionals cover the death of hundreds of American citizens. To the film’s media, the war is just a once-in-a-lifetime story that deserves to be captured one picture at a time. After all, it’s the media’s job. They are just feeding citizens what they want—blood, gore, winners, and victims. What would happen if America descends into such chaos? This movie provides one disturbing view, one that, God help us, must never happen.

One thing is clear, when a country loses trust in its leader’s ability to preserve their cherished freedoms and ensure equal treatment under the law, even insurrection seems somehow possible. That is a nightmare no American should have to entertain, but more and more Americans seem to be losing hope in the future of our country. They don’t trust elections. Many don’t even like the Presidential choices presented to them.

The Founding Fathers valued freedom enough to unleash a revolution against the greatest power at the time. Enough citizens joined them in securing what most at the time believed impossible, independence. Yes, insurrection hatched our beloved America. Belief in equal rights and freedom are powerful forces that have always driven patriotic Americans to action.


Even with our differences, most Americans believe in property rights, voting rights, law enforcement to keep us safe, freedom of speech, and personal responsibility. Unfortunately, more and more Americans feel these values are in question, and they are not sure America can be saved!

Many Americans no longer even believe that elections will produce a lawful winner. They don’t trust the voting machines. They want paper ballots that can be counted. They don’t believe multiple days are needed. Hasn’t one day of voting always been enough? They want required IDs and signed mail-in ballots. They fear ballot harvesting is just another name for ‘manufacturing” all the votes you need to ensure a fraudulent victory. Are American fair elections no more!

Many no longer believe that the enforcement of law is fair and sure. While former President Donald Trump has been charged with multiple “crimes,” President Joe Biden’s similar actions aren’t even charged. Hunter Biden’s influence peddling with money set aside for the “Big Guy” are not even covered in the mainstream media. The Dept. of Justice is quick to charge Trump, but with the Bidens, we hear nothing but crickets. People who commit crimes are being let go instead of being held accountable. Is American law and order no more!

Under President Trump, our border was finally more under control. Under Biden, his open border has been continually flooding our country with illegals from around the world. They come expecting benefits at the expense of taxpaying citizens. Illegals overwhelm services in our urban areas. Legal immigrants had to wait years to enter and are fuming at this invasion of illegals rushing to the front of the line and expecting to be accepted, supported, and allowed to become citizens. Is America’s secure border no more!

We thought in America, your home was your castle. If you work to buy the home of your dreams, you were sure that your property rights were secure in a community that you loved. But today, squatters are taking over vacant homes and fending off owners who want them to leave their property. Illegals are being told to come to America, find an empty home, and move in. In the name of equity, governments are rezoning the suburbs and requiring the building of low-income housing where it is not wanted. Are America’s property rights no more!

Do you believe America is lost? Do you believe nothing can reverse this march to chaos? Do you believe that it is time to buy your own guns to protect your family when the government won’t? Is a civil war coming? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you are in danger of losing the optimistic attitude that has characterized Americans for two centuries. This is our country. This is not the time for surrender. It’s time to fight to preserve America the best way you can—vote for candidates who promise to preserve the rights you value most.

Your vote does matter. There are no perfect candidates, but the party positions make a difference in this critical election. If you want law and order, secure borders, fair elections, property rights, and a return to personal responsibility, there is only one party to support. Vote for every GOP candidate you are given the opportunity to support, or it may very well be America no more!
