The Founder Of The Republican Party
The Republican party was founded in 1854 by anti-slavery activists, yeah really. The founder of the Republican Party was a group of activists who wanted to fight the expansion of slavery. These activists started the GOP, namely, the Republican party, on account of their deep opposition to slavery. If you’re wondering what does GOP stand for, it is The Grand Old Party. Some may say that President Abraham Lincoln was the founder of the Republican Party but would be incorrect. President Lincoln was the first Republican president, not the founder of the Republican party.
What Is Republican, What Do Republicans Stand For?
Republicans differ greatly from Democrats on key issues that effect every single American. The American voters had better start realizing that before the 2016 election otherwise it will not matter what Republicans stand for, what the Republican elephant represents or why adults don’t believe in Santa Claus. If American voters elect another democrat to the office of president, the chaos, the stagnant economy and the lack of border security we have experienced under the current administration will be the least of our worries. If you want to see the slow death of America continue go ahead and elect another democrat to president.
The Democrat Utopian Philosophy
The Democrats think people are stupid; so stupid in fact that we cannot take care of ourselves or make our own decisions, so the government has to do it for us. It’s the government’s responsibility to take care of us. The government knows what best for us. With democrats in charge we have no worries since the government will take care of educating our children, feeding us, clothing us, housing us and even healing us (or not, depending how you view Obamacare).
The Republican Realistic Philosophy
Republicans on the other hand believe in the citizens. They believe that each of us is responsible for ourselves; we determine our own destiny, not some government bureaucrat. Republicans believe in limiting government intervention so that you can determine your own destiny. They believe in the free market system so that you can set your own course towards prosperity. Republicans believe in you.
With all of the problems and issues we face as a nation today, it really doesn’t matter who the founder of the Republican party was. What matters is which party, based on their philosophies, do you want running this country after the 2016 election…the Democrats or the Republicans.
