A short story by Ambrose Bierce
We can’t be like Democrats – a party of big spending. We can’t pretend our borders are secure from illegal immigration. We can’t have ethical standards that are a punch-line for Jay Leno.
When Republicans act like Democrats, America loses.
It’s time for Republicans to start acting like Republicans. We have to remember who we are: We are not Big Government Republicans. We are not Washington Republicans. We are Change Washington Republicans. Democrats are not the change Washington needs. We are the change Washington needs and it’s time for Republicans like us to stand for that change again.
Ambrose Bierce disappeared in the Mexican desert in 1913. The Reagan Administration signed off on the first trillion-dollar budget. This has been going on for a long time folks. As far as I can tell, the Bush Administration has been acting like Republicans and it's time for Republicans to stop acting like Republicans. The Republicans are very good at blaming the Democrats, and vice versa.
Democrats: Tax and Spend.
Republicans: Borrow and Spend.
