5 Words Used By The Republican Elite To Destroy You-Innovator

Innovator

Innovator.  

An innovator is a person or an organization who is one of the first to introduce into reality something better than before. That opens up a new area for others and achieves an innovation. This could be someone who helps to open up a new line of technology, art, business, resource or invention, but is innovation a proper role for the federal government? Many conservatives will say no.  Are politicians listening?  Unfortunately, more often than not, the answer is no.

Historically the Republican party has led on innovation. Recently John Kasich stated, that “In Ohio, we reduced Medicaid funding for the poor from 10 percent to 2.5 percent and didn’t cut one benefit or didn’t take anybody off the rolls. Why? Because we are innovators.”

President Abraham Lincoln earned a patent and facilitated the first transcontinental railroad system. President Hoover played a key role in the early development of radio broadcasting, and President Coolidge created our national airways system. Dwight D. Eisenhower inaugurated NASA and DARPA, while Richard Nixon launched the cable television industry through deregulation. President Ronald Reagan made GPS available for civilian use and greatly expanded science research.

In 200 years the United States went from being a colonial backwater to being the world’s dominant economic and military power. How did our nation arise from obscurity, break free from the grip of the most powerful empire on earth, and skyrocket to global leadership? With a government focused on innovation, anything is possible, including growth and change.

With a strong personal drive, Innovators are leaders. Targets and rewards motivate them strongly, but a major incentive for this group is the idea of creating a legacy and wielding influence over others. Persistent and open to all new things, innovators are perhaps the perfect combination for bringing a new idea through the various phases of development and execution. “Where there is a will, there is a way,” is perhaps the best way to describe them. They’re perfectionists and tend to be workaholics, most likely because it takes an incredible amount of dedication, time and hard work to push through an idea or initiative that hasn’t yet caught on.


5 Words Used By The Republican Elite To Destroy You-Conservative

Conservative

Conservatism

While most Republican politicians call themselves “conservative”, it is not truly known if they understand what the word actually means. What do they mean by the word? It depends. And during a Republican primary, that can be problematic. Every candidate is vying to be the standard-bearer for conservatism, and exploiting the fact that its meaning is variable.

By definition, being conservative means to have an aversion to rapid change; a belief that tradition and prevailing social norms often contain within them handed down wisdom; and mistrust of attempts to remake society so that it conforms to an abstract account of what would be just or efficient.

Historically, the central themes in American conservatism have included respect for American traditions, support of republicanism and the rule of law, Judeo-Christian values, anti-Communism, advocacy of American exceptionalism and a defense of Western civilization from perceived threats posed by moral relativism, multiculturalism, and postmodern ridicule of traditional culture. Liberty is a core value, with a particular emphasis on strengthening the free market, and opposition to high taxes and government or labor union encroachment on the entrepreneur.

The history of American conservatism has been marked by tensions and competing ideologies. Fiscal conservatives and libertarians favor small government, low taxes, limited regulation, and free enterprise. Social conservatives see traditional social values as threatened by secularism; they tend to support school prayer, the teaching of intelligent design or creationism, and the Second Amendment rights of private citizens to own firearms and to oppose abortion rights and oppose same-sex marriage.

Neoconservatives want to expand American ideals throughout the world. Paleoconservatives advocate restrictions on immigration, non-interventionist foreign policy, and stand in opposition to multiculturalism. The conservative movement of the 1950s attempted to bring together these divergent strands, stressing the need for unity to prevent the spread of “godless communism.”


5 Words Used By The Republican Elite To Destroy You-Regulation

Regulation

Regulation.

We hear from politicians that excessive regulation is destroying the economy, but when it comes to easing the burden of regulation, the American people have not seen much from Republicans on that score since the 1980’s… and that’s not a good sign for the GOP going forward.

On the regulatory side I think we need to repeal every rule that Barack Obama has in terms of work in progress, every one of them.  -Jeb Bush

Regulation creates, limits, constrains a right, creates or limits a duty, or allocates a responsibility. Regulation can take many forms: legal restrictions promulgated by a government authority, contractual obligations that bind many parties (for example, “insurance regulations” that arise out of contracts between insurers and their insureds), self-regulation by an industry such as through a trade association, social regulation, co-regulation, third-party regulation, certification, accreditation or market regulation. In its legal sense regulation can and should be distinguished from primary legislation (by Parliament of elected legislative body) on the one hand and judge-made law on the other.

The proper purpose of regulation is to set forth clear rules of the road for the citizens, so that business owners and workers can understand in advance what they need to do, or not do, to augment the possibilities for success within the confines of the law. Regulations must be drafted and implemented to balance legitimate public safety or consumer protection goals and job creation.

Constructive regulation should be a helpful guide, not a punitive threat. Worst of all, over-regulation is a stealth tax on everyone as the costs of compliance with the whims of federal agencies are passed along to the consumers at the cost of $1.75 trillion a year. Many regulations are necessary, like those which ensure the safety of food and medicine, especially from overseas. The bottom line on regulations is jobs. One constant that can happen is the job-crippling effect of even well-intentioned regulation. That makes it all the more important for federal agencies to be judicious about the impositions they create on businesses, especially small businesses. Republicans call for a moratorium on the development of any new major and costly regulations until a Republican Administration reviews existing rules to ensure that they have a sound basis in science and will be cost-effective.


5 Words Used By The Republican Elite To Destroy You-Repeal

Repeal

Repeal.

Patriotic Americans have heard for years, from GOP elites, that the repeal of ObamaCare is just around the corner; but if repeal does not happen, this word will come back to bite them and might just destroy the GOP forever.

A repeal is the removal or reversal of a law. There are two basic types of repeal, a repeal with re-enactment (or replacement) of the repealed law, or a repeal without replacement.

Republicans are in a large state of repeal, as they question directions that the Obama administration has made. Donald Trump recently has been quoted as saying, “It is like Obamacare; nobody ever read it. They passed it, nobody read it. And look at the mess we have right now. And it will be repealed.” With the possibility of a republican taking office, we may begin to see many bills up for repeal.

How does the process work?

A bill is a proposal for a new law or to amend an existing law. Bills are introduced to the Legislature by Legislators – any Representative or Senator. People who want to change the law have to work with Legislators to get bills “introduced.”

Senate Bills (S.B) are introduced by Senators; House Bills (H.B) are introduced by Representatives. Many times the same bill will be introduced in both the House and Senate, and are called “companion bills.”

During the first half of the session, the Senate hears their bills and the House hears their bills. At half-time, or “cross-over,” each side sends the bills they approved to the other side for consideration during the second half of session.

After a bill has been introduced it is assigned to be heard in one or more committees. The number of committees depends on the topic of the bill. The bills go to the committees in the order they are listed. The Committee Chairs will decide whether to give the bill a hearing. If the bill isna’t scheduled for a hearing, it simply sits in their committee.

Every time a bill passes a committee, it will go to the Senate or House floor where it is voted on by all members. The public can watch this happen, but testimony is not accepted at this time.
Any bill can be repealed. It has to go through the same process that it just went through to get approved; however you are processing a repeal. If the repeal does not pass vote, than the current law stays the same.


5 Words Used By The Republican Elite To Destroy You-Croynism

 Croynism

 

Cronyism

Our Republican leaders have condemned cronyism, but when push comes to shove, many of them have encouraged it; and it is this duplicitous conduct that could eventually destroy both the GOP and rank-and-file Americans in the process.

Cronyism is the practice of partiality in awarding jobs and other advantages to friends or trusted colleagues, especially in politics and between politicians and supportive organizations. For instance, this includes appointing “cronies” to positions of authority, regardless of their qualifications. Politically, “cronyism” is derogatorily used to imply buying and selling favors, such as: votes in legislative bodies, as doing favors to organizations, giving desirable ambassadorships to exotic places, etc.

While the republican party is constantly defending themselves against decision that lead many people feeling that cronyism is in play, some are now calling the kettle black against their own party. Ted Cruz recently stated, “I have spent much of my adult life enforcing the law and defending the Constitution. And the problem that underlies all of this is the cronyism and corruption of Washington.”

Cronyism exists when the appointer and the beneficiary such as an appointee are in social or business contact. Often, the appointer needs support in his or her own proposal, job or position of authority, and for this reason the appointer appoints individuals who will not try to weaken his or her proposals, vote against issues, or express views contrary to those of the appointer.

In a recent interview with the Wichita Business Journal, Charles Koch explained how cronyism hurts us all.

“I think one of the biggest problems we have in the country is this rampant cronyism where all these large companies are into smash-and-grab, short-term profits, (saying) how do I get a regulation, we don’t want to export natural gas because of my raw materials … well, you say you believe in free markets, but by your actions you obviously don’t. You believe in cronyism. And that’s true even at the local level. I mean, how does somebody get started if you have to pay $100,000 or $300,000 to get a medallion to drive a taxi cab? You have to go to school for two years to be a hairdresser. You name it, in every industry we have this.”

And for disadvantaged people trying to get started, it’s unconscionable in my view. I think it’s in our long-term interest, in every American’s long-term interest, to fight against this cronyism. You should profit because you created a better restaurant and people enjoyed going to it. You didn’t force them to go, you don’t have a mandate that you have to go to my restaurant on Tuesdays and Wednesdays or you go to prison. I mean, come on. You feel good about that?”
