Welcome to the Conservative Party USA (VA)
“A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned – this is the sum of good government.” – Thomas Jefferson
The time has come for true Conservatives and like-minded Independents to secede from their respective parties and join the Conservative Party of the United States.
The Republican Party has consistently failed to uphold conservative principles on so many levels following the days of Ronald Reagan’s 2-terms as President. So much so, that it can no longer be considered a legitimate representative of traditional American conservative values. That is even true for Virginia Republicans. The Conservative Party USA (Virginia) rectifies that shortcoming.
A Brief History
Virginia is the core of America and since the founding of the Jamestown Colony, the first colony in the New World in 1606, Virginia has been the heartbeat of the country. Since the original founding, Virginia has played a key role in the history of the United States of America. From the Jamestown Colony, the Revolutionary War, the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, the Virginia Act for Establishing Religious Freedom, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Civil war, and the Reconstruction, Virginia has been at the center of these historical and important events and documents. Many of those at the center of these events and documents were in fact Virginians. Among the Virginians involved include George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, George Wythe, Richard Henry Lee, Benjamin Harrison, Thomas Nelson, Jr., Francis Lightfoot Lee, Carter Braxton, John Blair, James Madison, George Mason, James McClung, Edmund Randolph, and Robert E. Lee to just name a few. Among the Presidents of the United States include William Henry Harrison, John Tyler, Zachary Taylor, and Woodrow Wilson (He may have been Virginia born, but he was educated at Princeton, where his anti-capitalist, “Progressive” ideals flourished).
Around the time of the turn of the 19th to 20th centuries, there began a movement to change the way that America was governed and how the government would in turn provide for the “common good” of the People. This movement stayed somewhat quiet until the presidency of Woodrow Wilson whereas there began an attempt by the government to take a more active role in the day-to-day lives of Americans. When Franklin Delano Roosevelt was sworn in as President in 1933, America was in the midst of an economic depression. In what was claimed at the time by FDR and his Administration to be necessary to pull the US out of this depression, the government began a usurping of power from States and individuals in what was known as the New Deal. Robert Morgenthau, FDR’s Secretary of the Treasury, while testifying before the House Ways and Means Committee in May of 1939 stated “We are spending more money than we have ever spent before and it does not work. I want to see this country prosperous. I want to see people get a job. We have never made good on our promises. I say after eight years of this administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started and an enormous debt to boot.” This depression lasted from 1929 through 1939.
Fast forward to 2010, here we go again. President Barack Obama is pushing the Progressive agenda, spending money – money that we do not have – to perform a government takeover of the private sector. Unemployment remains at 9.9%. Under the Stimulus Bill that Obama stated that if the bill was passed, unemployment would not exceed 8%, however, if it was not passed, unemployment would reach 10%. The Stimulus has done nothing. The health care legislation that passed across party lines will cost, according to the CBO over $1Trillion. The number will in actuality eclipse $2.5Trillion. Under Obama the US national debt has increased to $13Trillion. All of these costs are completely unsustainable and will eventually lead to the downfall of America.
