Federalists

Dear Illinois Conservatives, what is the Repubican Party accomplishing for you?

Published

on

Excuse me if I come off sounding like Steve Deace. I don’t mean to. However, when I elaborate on how bad the Republican Party of Illinois is, I also offer a solution. My solution is to consider joining the Federalist Party movement. Because honestly, what do you have to lose?

The 2018 Illinois Primary should be a wakeup call as Conservatism suffered defeat after defeat. The only two salvageable victories were Douglas Bennett in the 10th and David Merkle in the 2nd. Both of these candidates are longshots in November. There were also a couple of conservatives who won because they ran unopposed, Jitendra “JD” Diganvker in the 8th and Bill Fawell in the 17th. JD is a longshot, though District 17 isn’t lost yet.

District 3 Fail

Avowed neo-nazi, Author Jones won the nomination because he ran unopposed. This was the biggest headline for the GOP in Illinois. A neo-nazi is now their candidate. What is also highly disappointing is that the Republican Party had a chance to win this race in November. This is the race where the Democrats were engaged in a civil war of sorts. Socialist, Marrie Newman challenged Daniel Lipinski. If Marrie Newman had won, the District may swing red due to Newman’s socialism. But Lipinski held on, likely due to the open primary system. The GOP just sat back and allowed its own defeat in District 3. They failed to step up and challenge Jones. Is there no establishment or leadership there? Leadership would have been fielding a candidate to first ensure that a neo-nazi will not carry the torch. But instead, the GOP facilitated its own defeat.

RINO Victories Rampant

I do applaud Bennett for his victory in the 10th, but I do recognize that he won, in large part, because the two well-funded RINOs saw fit to hammer each other. Through their big money, they lost their appeal through mudslinging and robocalls. The less funded, but more conservative candidate was able to sneak a 259 vote win over the pro-abortion Jeremy Wynes. The other RINO, Sapan Shah was a close third place. But looking at the other races, RINOs came out on top when head to head with a Conservative. Preston Nelson, a strong libertarian, was no match for the RINO incumbent Mike Bost. The more formidable James Marter still lost handily to incumbent Adam Kinzinger. The largely criticized incumbent governor, Bruce Rauner, still prevailed over Jeanne Ives. Bruce Rauner, by the way, signed a sanctuary state law. So come election day in November, leftist will have two of them to vote for. And Conservatives will only vote for a party that does not represent, in their state, a limited government nor the US Constitution.

As stated by Real GOP Illinois

Bruce Rauner was always a liberal. He was never a conservative. We question whether Rauner was ever really a Republican or if he just saw an opportunity to buy the Illinois Republican Party for his own enrichment and the enrichment of his elite friends. Who has profited from Bruce Rauner? Let’s start naming names.

The Illinois GOP has no interest in a limited government. It has no interest in responsible immigration laws. It does not seek to protect the 2nd Amendment. It does not believe in protecting the unborn. How can they? They’re too busy fielding rich leftist candidates to pass on to the loyal opposition to the state’s Democratic majority. Sapan Shah, Jeremy Wynes, John Morrow all rich leftist who infiltrated the GOP ranks to garner the nomination. They failed, but Mike Bost, Adam Kinzinge, Rodney Davis, John Shimkus, are all blatant RINO incumbents representing their respective districts. Then there’s the crooked John Elleson who won the 9th.

Compared to other Blue States

I live in Maryland. I know very well what it’s like to live under a super-majority of Democrats. I know the futility of opposition. But remarkably, the Maryland GOP isn’t all that bad or at least it’s gotten better. Andy Harris, the state’s lone Republican Congressman on the Eastern Shore, is a solid conservative. Governor Larry Hogan is one of the nation’s most popular governors. He has done as well as a conservative seeking reelection in a blue state can do.

In California, there are solid conservatives running. We’ve interviewed them here on NOQ Report. See Erin CruzShastina Sandman, and Dr. Ken Wright. There is also Konstantinos Roditis a Republican but a solid constitutional conservative federalist running for Controller in California.

The Illinois GOP does not have the same interest or ambition as the other blue states. So what is the point of the Illinois GOP? It is incapable of representing and advancing small government conservatism.

A New Party

For Conservatives in Illinois, it’s time for a new party. Part of the Illinois GOP’s issue is that the GOP platform is meaningless to them. The Federalist Party addresses this exact problem

Over time, the Federalist Party will address issues in a way that is very different from other parties. Platforms today are essentially meaningless. There is no accountability for politicians within the parties. They’re able to act any way they wish. As long as they can confuse the electorate during campaign season, their adherence (or lack thereof) to the party’s platform can be disregarded.

They offer an intricate solution that not only allows some dissension but provides transparency. Read more about their solutions here. The goal of the Federalist Party is to prevent the corruption of ideals that has taken place in the Illinois GOP and the Republican Party as a whole. Give it some thought. In the meantime what have you to lose?

There is no fix for Obamacare

There is no fix for Obamacare

At least not one that can maintain the virtues of a free market and the independence of the American consumer.

There have been many who have postulated that Obamacare was “rigged to fail”. Maybe that’s true, maybe it isn’t. But, I think it can be clearly inferred that it was not designed to be fixed with efforts that attempt to revive market forces or consumer choice and independence. You see, for the health insurance market, the ACA was a “total buy-in”. Its roots spread through the entire foundation of the Healthcare industry and its basic premise was a guarantee that too many consumers would become dependent on its mechanisms for continued coverage, that any alteration would appear dooming to large numbers of insured Americans.

While the ACA may not have been designed to fail, it was nevertheless designed to falter and its crafting was of such a manner so that the only way to prop it up was to move further towards socialized medicine. Any move to allow market forces to re-enter and re-invigorate the health insurance market would only hasten Obamacare’s collapse because it has been rigged to respond to such attempts catastrophically, so as to delegitimize such attempts.

Obamacare is quintessentially socialism in embryo. Capitalism cannot save it, for its precepts are counter-intuitive to the principles of the free market and consumer independence. The only way to save the health insurance system from inevitable, and possibly designed, collapse is Obamacare’s end.

This is why every Republican attempt to fix the health insurance market has been rated by the CBO and other entities as making more problems instead of less, and leading to less coverage instead of more, because as long as the bulk of Obamacare remains in place as the main propellant of the health insurance market and the healthcare industry, it will respond as designed and swirl out of control as the market becomes more and more confused by the application of counter-intuitive principles (socialism and capitalism). What we are witnessing in the steady collapse of the health insurance marketplace is a fast-paced demonstration of what American society has been steadily experiencing for over half a century: the failure of mixed economics. This foolish attempt to wed socialist ideas with capitalist ones ignorantly assumes that two fundamentally opposed economic models could be combined in a successful manner.

The only way to fix the health insurance market, and the only way to continue invigorating an American economy once the greatest and most industrious in the world, is to hack away the creeping vines of socialism taking hold of our economic sectors and reaffirm the benefits of market forces and, above all else, consumer independence. The fastest way to regain confidence in capitalism for the current and rising generations is to responsibly repeal Obamacare and craft piecemeal steps towards a truly free market in its stead.

The focus cannot be on fixing Obamacare, or even on replacing it. It must be on saving consumers from destructive ends… both from catastrophic premiums and the growing threat of absolute government dependence.

Advancing the American Conservative Movement

Advancing the American Conservative Movement

Ever since first putting out feelers for the American Conservative Movement last month, I’ve come to the conclusion the interest is clearly there. Patriots are tired of fighting two fronts: All of the Democrats on one side and the lukewarm moderate Republicans on the other side. Now is the time for a change.

I’ve been down a similar road before. Starting in 2017, I set out with a handful of people to form a new political party. There were ups and downs, but one of the biggest problems was tying too much of my personal financial future into the party. I invested many times more of my own money than all of the contributions combined. I’m not a rich man, so it was painful when the party was essentially ripped from underneath me, leaving no recourse or potential to recoup losses. This is why with the ACM, I’m not getting involved financially. I will neither spend significant chunks of my own money nor will I expect to receive compensation. This is a labor of love, a choice, one that I hope will rise to the challenge conservatives are facing with government at all levels today.

This is also why it’s important I simultaneously work through NOQ Report to generate the necessary buzz around the movement while simultaneously building up Proper Narrative, LLC. By keeping all of the components in their proper lanes, it will make success for each much easier to achieve.

Much like the Justice Democrats did when they propped up primary candidates like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the American Conservative Movement will strive to put true limited-government, Constitution-loving conservatives into office. If this sounds like the Tea Party, it is. The difference is we’re not going to branch out into dozens of satellite organizations trying to claim the mantle of the Tea Party while doing very little to actually advance conservatism in America. We will be focused, specific, and organized.

Those who are interested in learning more about the American Conservative Movement should fill out the form below. We are gathering names at this point; once we reach a tipping point of enough interested parties to make an impact, we’ll start sending out updates. Until then, we’re just going to try to connect with like-minded patriotic Americans who demand more from Washington DC, their local city council, and every level of government in-between.

The Democrats aren’t the only ones lurching to the left. By their nature, many in the GOP are sliding to the murky middle. Compromises are being made, but they don’t have to be. It’s time to set things to the right where they belong.

Federalism: How Colorado counties are fighting back against Red Flag Gun laws

Federalism How Colorado counties are fighting back against Red Flag Gun laws

As Colorado prepares to become another attacker against our right to keep and bear arms, several Colorado counties are fighting back. They are becoming what they describe as “2nd Amendment sanctuary counties” where gun owners can come knowing city and county law enforcement will not comply with the taking of a citizen’s firearms without due process.

Opinion

One of the most important tenets of limited government federalism is allowing the “lower” levels of government to choose for themselves how to enforce laws within the boundaries of the Constitution and within the parameters of the law of the land. As long as the actions of one area such as a city, county, or state do not adversely affect another area, giving them a tighter hold of the reins makes sense in today’s world just as it made sense to our founders.

A clear example of this is how different jurisdictions handle gun laws. There should be essentially no restrictions on our right to arm ourselves in a perfect world, but this isn’t a perfect world and leftists really want us to not own firearms. Therefore, they put forth restrictions that infringe on the 2nd Amendment and its our job to fight them. While the national gun debate seems to get all the attention, it’s the local jurisdictions in which we have the best opportunity to make a real impact defending our rights.

It’s obviously unfortunate for some of us who live in areas with perverse restrictions on firearm ownership, but at least there are options. One could even argue it makes for a stronger America when we have such diverse options about where to live and raise our families.

If someone wants to live in a sanctuary city with tons of safe spaces, obtuse gun laws, high taxes, and overbearing regulations, that’s their choice. If they want to live in a land that’s free and adheres properly to the Constitution, more of these places are becoming available as options. Those of us who believe that the right to keep and bear arms must never be infringed at any level of government will hopefully have that option in more places soon.

Of course, this doesn’t take away from the absolute need to keep fighting in those places dominated by progressives. Just because we have options doesn’t mean we should stop fighting for others who are having their rights infringed upon.

These Colorado counties may be the blueprint through which our rights can be best protected. Even as the state continues to lurch left, local governments are making a stand for the people. We should hope to see this becoming more common soon.

Conservatives in these blue states have been looking for ways to push back against aggressive gun control legislation that they believe infringes upon their constitutional rights. Now Colorado and New Mexico have shown them what they can do. – Helen Raleigh

Final Thoughts

The battle to preserve our 2nd Amendment rights must be fought on multiple fronts. While our attention must remain at the national level, we can’t abandon the states, counties, and cities where we have much more influence.
