What does “Unhyphenated Voting” look like?
Obviously, on this site, we aim to focus and share what we Americans have in common, as opposed to what divides us. What are some characteristics we should look for to find a candidate who will truly represent all Americans?
First of all, character matters. This is where we need to lose the “microwave mentality” we grew up with, and not look to 30 second sound bites, likely written by a speech writer only to be read from a teleprompter.
We need to look BACK at our candidates patterns and lives with discernment, because leopards don’t change their spots, and because you can learn a lot about a man or woman by their choice of friends.
Does the candidate have as a priority, an agenda that will make for a strong America? Strong borders, and a strong economy that eschews national debt? Is a strong work ethic sought, that doesn’t reward sloth? We must also maintain a strong military by realizing military rules are in place for security and NOT so that no one’s feelings are hurt.
Does the candidate love life? The lives of our veterans, the lives of our unborn and the lives of the citizens already here by not “importing pestilence”?
As we come to the 50th anniversary of Ronald Reagan’s speech called “A Time for Choosing”, bear in mind that history repeats itself, and that Ronald Reagan’s biggest regret of his presidency was being too soft on immigration.
Think: “Americans First”, Americans of all colors.
According to Ronald Reagan himself, as told to his trusted long-time friend and U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese, the biggest mistake of his presidency was signing the 1986 amnesty for what turned out to be more than half the five million illegal immigrants in the country. Reagan was uncomfortable with the amnesty but was persuaded by some of the leaders of his own party (still living) that it would only affect a small number of illegal immigrants and would assure that Congress would follow through with more vigorous enforcement of U.S. immigration laws. The misnamed Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986 was touted by its supporters as “comprehensive immigration reform” that would grant amnesty only to a few long-settled immigrants and strengthen border security and internal immigration enforcement against employers who were hiring illegal immigrants.(1)
This is but an excerpt of Reagan’s powerful and timely speech.
