“We Radical Republicans of today must understand that our conservatism must impact more than a 401K plan, a marriage hall, and a uterus…”

NEW YORK CITY / PITTSBURGH  (MLK DAY -2014) –  “If we Republicans are to help America win the War on Poverty in the 21st century, it may be wise to look back to those that fought for change in the 19th century.

The Republican Party needs a strong dose of the spirit of our Radical Republicans past in order to lead millions of Americans out of the depths of this recession and the clutches of generational poverty. Just as the Civil War forever broke a social more within America that found the stench of slavery tolerable in any regard, the Great Recession has prompted a permanent elevation of civic standards, political leadership, and legislative vision that is prudent for fulfilling the essence of MLK’s dream.

Republican proposals such as the ones given by Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) on the Senate floor must go further than providing access to lower taxes or school choice vouchers. Although financial investment in impoverished communities is necessary, it will take more than the similar ideas we have heard from Republicans and Democrats recently.

We Radical Republicans of today must understand that our conservatism must impact more than a 401K plan, a marriage hall, and a uterus. Today’s call to to fulfill a dream on this Day of Service must entail aligning our principles with a courage to bring about society-improving change in ways that are consistent with our party’s history while perhaps outside of our current comfort zone.”
