Repub­li­cans need to get or­ga­nized now

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

Fol­low­ing our im­plo­sion this elec­tion cy­cle, are there any Repub­li­cans left? If so, we have to an­swer a sim­ple ques­tion. Do we wish to re­main a po­lit­i­cal party or not? If so, then I sug­gest we or­ga­nize im­me­di­ately and copy the op­po­si­tion strat­egy and tac­tics. It is for sure that those who laughed when Howard Dean be­came DNC Na­tional Chair­man are not laugh­ing now.

First, we must for­get this bi­par­ti­san drivel and do ev­ery­thing pos­si­ble to foil the Democrats’ leg­isla­tive strat­egy, ex­actly as they have done ours for the past six years. What is the use of be­ing elected if you can’t gov­ern?

We are cer­tainly the poster chil­dren for a failed leg­isla­tive agenda. I as­sure you all that Nancy Pelosi will shortly show us what it means to gov­ern.

Sec­ond, if you can’t win at the polls, at­tack the win­ners’ lead­ers. Wit­ness the Trent Lott and Tom De­Lay char­ac­ter as­sas­si­na­tions by the Democrats’ toad­ies, the me­dia and the par­ti­san courts, which they will sadly now re­tain.

Third, we must do as they do, i.e. chal­lenge ev­ery in­cum­bent in the coun­try from dog­catcher to pres­i­dent with well- funded, vi­able can­di­dates.

In my con­gres­sional dis­trict, no one, in­clud­ing my­self, had heard of our sit­ting Demo­crat con­gress­man’s op­po­nent un­til Elec­tion Day. No won­der he lost.

Fourth, we must be­come a real party and run a 365-day-per-year cam­paign, as the Democrats do, with truly pro­fes­sional peo­ple , rather than our cur­rent gag­gle of elec­tion-year vol­un­teers. We should hire Dick Mor­ris as chief strate­gist to the Repub­li­can Na­tional Com­mit­tee. No one knows the Clin­ton ma­chine bet­ter than he does.

The real sober­ing thought this elec­tion cy­cle is what will hap­pen if the Democrats are al­lowed to en­fran­chise the mil­lions of il­le­gal aliens in this coun­try, which I sus­pect is their ul­ti­mate aim. This will guar­an­tee one-party rule in this na­tion un­til the end of it, or un­til our ab­sorp­tion into that dar­ling of the Left’s new en­tity, the North Amer­i­can Union — if our en­e­mies abroad al­low us to sur­vive that long.
