It’s hard to overstate the importance of the Republican Party’s position on personal wealth, as the Republican leadership has increasingly been pushed into defending that position over the past several years.
The GOP’s position has grown increasingly untenable as the country has shifted toward a more affluent, technologically-driven economy, with the growing number of people living in the city and suburban suburbs who have no interest in going out and spending time outside.
For those of us who live in the suburbs, this means having to spend more time away from our families and communities, and less time in the car.
The fact that Republicans are now willing to put their party on the defensive, and defend the “wealth” of Americans against those who are less likely to share their views, makes their position untenable and makes their leadership untrustworthy.
This is why we are asking you to take a moment and tell the Republican leaders who are in charge in Washington, DC, to defend the Republican principles of personal wealth and prosperity for all Americans.
As the GOP becomes more and more out of touch with the reality of today’s America, it is vital that the Republican party and the Republican-led leadership in Washington D.C. step up and defend those principles.
We want our party leaders to be the people who actually stand up for the values of our country, rather than the people with the authority to tell us what to do and how to do it.
If you have any suggestions for how we can do that, please share them with us in the comments below.
Let’s help the Republican movement grow and be a force for good in our country.
