Is it an oxymoron to promote critical thinking among fellow GOP activists and remain Republican?
Questions such as this one was heard from many during my distributing sample ballots to people waiting in the long lines last month to vote. I was particularly concerned when more than a few Republicans indicated they were not supporting our GOP presidential nominee.
Many shared the increasingly popular opinion the GOP has tilted too far too to the right or lack an understanding for the need to involve folks from other cultures.
If the Republican Party is going to survive or return to its former days of glory its going to require developing an imagination or willingness to open our ranks to people whose conservative thinking could very well be less rigid than most current Republicans.
Utilizing this wonderful networking mechanism could serve a great start towards attracting folks too timid or intimidated if they chose to candidly express different thoughts. Its not abandoning our conservative principles to welcome people whose thinking may not totally align with own own.
