The Republican Party - Extremism & Democracy

ElectionOracle / US Presidential Election 2016 Nov 26, 2015 - 11:50 AM GMT

By: EconMatters

ElectionOracle

The Republican Party has been hijacked by the right wing Christian conservatives, the gun toting NRA extremists, the Tea Party extremists and the racially and culturally narrow-minded factions across the country. The party is a complete mess, it really has lost its way, and is destined to lose the Presidential Election to Hillary Clinton. The emergence of front runners in the Republican campaigning season of Donald Trump and Ben Carson speaks volumes regarding how far this party has lost its way.


Donald Trump

Pictures of Christian evangelicals putting their hands on Trump`s forehead during prayer make baby kissing look respectable on the campaign trail. Trump obviously got into the race as the attention whore that he is just because there are cameras involved, and this is what he does. The fact that he started polling well probably shocked this branding clown more than anybody, and then he started getting serious in pandering to every worst-case extremist tendency that so aptly defines the Republican party today. He basically has done the Democrat`s job in converting any remaining Republican moderates to the other side. Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party should send Donald Trump a large thank you note after the election, he has made their job a lot easier. Donald Trump`s incessant pandering to every extremist group and their requisite views has basically confirmed what the Democrats have been saying and portraying about the Republican party for years. That they are a bunch of racist, homophobic, right-wing, gun-toting, tea-party simple minded extremists.

Ben Carson

Ben Carson could have been a breath of fresh air for the party, but no he had to start opening his mouth on the campaign trail. And he has said some pretty stupid things on the campaign trail. Things I thought a competent neurosurgeon was incapable of thinking or enunciating, let alone speak in public. The guy is basically an incompetent, senile idiot who if the Republican Party had any real platform with legitimate candidates would have been marginalized months ago on the campaign trail. I never realized how specialized competencies can be until this guy opened his mouth, and the incongruence between the thoughts rattling around this man`s brain, and what he did for a profession is astounding. I am not sure how one can make it through basic medical school with such thoughts. He may have early stage Alzheimer’s or dementia of some sort. At any rate just another of the long list of un-electable Republican Party candidates.

Fiscal Conservatism

The Republican Party needs an overhaul, they need to get back to the core values of pro-business and job creation, entrepreneurial beliefs that once made this party a formidable political entity. They need to concentrate on fiscal conservatism as this will be sorely needed in about three years when all the entitlement spending really starts hitting the accounting books of the government. They need to focus on promoting lower taxes, simplifying the tax code, and cutting waste from bloated governmental programs like the military. In short, the government needs to be much more efficient in where and what they spend the taxpayer receipts on. The US has spent so much money supporting the military industrial complex over the last 20 years that the overkill factor is off the charts. I know the importance of having a strong military but the current spending is just comically ridiculous given the juxtaposition of the United States Military capabilities and the next nearest competitor.

Inefficient Capital Allocation

It is obvious that a large portion of this spending needs to be reassigned to more productive and efficient uses in the economy. This is where the Republican Party needs to steal a Democratic idea and really overhaul the healthcare industry. It doesn`t take rocket science to realize the quality of healthcare for the average citizen in the Scandinavian countries versus the United States and what these countries spend on the Military to realize poor capital allocation policies.

There is no reason that every American shouldn`t be able to walk into any healthcare facility at a moment`s notice and have all their medical needs met free of charge given the immense resources of this country. It is obvious that the entire healthcare system needs to be overhauled, costs are out of control and have been for decades; most of this is due to structural inefficiencies and the interplay between drug companies, insurance companies and the government – this relationship structure is broken.

It will require a lot of money and focus but this is going to happen by necessity if for no other reason as the current system will eventually implode. Since this is going to happen eventually, the Republicans might as well adopt this issue from the Democrats now that they have really screwed up the healthcare system with their failed attempt to fix it. Ideas go back and forth between the Party Platforms all the time, the Republicans need to steal this issue back from the Democrats.

The party needs to be much more inclusive from a sexual orientation, cultural values, and ethnicity standpoint. This is a no-brainer, it is an election after all, and sheer numbers count. But the real reason is that wake up Republicans America isn`t like your grandfather`s age, and that era ain`t coming back. Cities are multicultural landscapes with large populations of culturally and ethnically diverse people often with common goals of seeking a higher quality of life. In short, to be simplistic here good capable hard working, smart people come from many diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds – yes even illegal immigrants. Get over it Republicans by giving this issue solely to the Democrats, you are essentially committing political suicide – you have become a stereotype, a caricature of a political party that is destined to lose elections.

Never Going to Attain Unanimity of Thought

Americans have diverse views on many issues, it is hard getting two people to agree on anything these days. All Republicans are not going to agree with each other on all the issues, some may be sympathetic to some issues and vehemently opposed to others. The key is to move to the center and have enough of the issues that are really important to voters to broaden the appeal of the party. Focus on policies promoting economic growth, lower taxes, and spending tax receipts more efficiently and not on one`s sexual orientation in the bedroom. The Republican Party has too many extremist views on far too many issues to be electable right now on the presidential stage. Right now it appears that Hillary Clinton is going to be our next President, and that means another four years of underachieving from a pro-growth business standpoint. And frankly, she is the only candidate I have seen who is even remotely qualified to run for President in this circus show of a campaign.

The theory of quantum mechanics and Einstein’s theory of relativity (E=mc2) have taught us that matter (yin) and energy (yang) are inter-related and interdependent. This interconnectness of all things is the essense of the concept “yin-yang”, and Einstein’s fundamental equation: matter equals energy. The same theories may be applied to equities and commodity markets.

All things within the markets and macro-economy undergo constant change and transformation, and everything is interconnected. That’s why here at Economic Forecasts & Opinions, we focus on identifying the fundamental theories of cause and effect in the markets to help you achieve a great continuum of portfolio yin-yang equilibrium.

That's why, with a team of analysts, we at EconMatters focus on identifying the fundamental theories of cause and effect in the financial markets that matters to your portfolio.
