There is not only a divide between the ideas of Republicans and Democrats in Washington, it seems as if that divide comes honestly and reflects the members of the two parties. The partisan divide seems not to be a Washington fiction. I know that I agree with the majority of Republicans on everyone of the positions and the majority of Democrats on none. I am a Republican because I believe America is worth defending and must be second to none. Abortion is anathema. The traditional family is the basis of civilization and not subject to social experimentation by government. Profit is good. Debt in excess is bad. Jobs matter and you cannot be anti-employer and pro-jobs. I believe that common sense and liberty are the keys to an America that works.
