How the GOP can regain its political “brand”

How can the Republican Party (GOP) really distinguish itself from the Democrats?

By taking clear, well-articulated positions for:

  1. LIMITED CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT - Retrenching the expanding federal reach, doing away with federal grants-in-aid to state and local governments while simultaneously reducing the federal tax burden so that state and local governments are at greater liberty to do what needs to be done based on local realities (or not do what does not need to be done, as the case may be). Along with this, Congress should take specific action to re-articulate and reinforce states' rights and the return of greater liberty to U.S. citizens.
  2. FREE MARKETS - Taking a strong and well-articulated stand against corporatism and bailouts for businesses or unions, presenting a new vision for unfettered economic growth to the middle class. This vision should include reducing the regulatory burden on business and industry by granting increased liberty to individuals (the consumers) to decide more about what they want and don't want in products, in services, in their employment and in benefits.
  3. SOUND MONETARY POLICY - Get control of the Federal Reserve Bank (FRB)  to help re-establish the value of the U.S. Dollar ( USD ), which is being gradually destroyed through inflation since the inception of the Federal Reserve banking system.
