Contract With Republicans

Ann Coulter  "In 1994, after 40 years in the wilderness, Republicans swept both houses of Congress, running on Newt Gingrich's "Contract With America," in which the GOP promised to hold votes on 10 popular policies in the first 100 days. They won, fulfilled the contract, and went on to control the House for more than a decade. 

"More recently, the country gave the GOP the House in 2010, the Senate in 2014 and the presidency in 2016. But we're not seeing any difference. The GOP has become a ratchet, never reversing Democratic victories, but only confirming them with teeny-tiny alterations. 

"It's time for the voters to issue a "Contract With Republicans." Unless our elected representatives can complete these basic, simple tasks, we're out. There will be no reason to care about the GOP, anymore. 

"Whether these objectives are accomplished by President Trump or a rhesus monkey, the Democrats, the Bull Moose Party or the U.S. Pirate Party -- it will make no difference to us. We just need somebody to fulfill this contract in order to get our vote. 

"Here are our first three contract terms. " .  . .


Coulter's points of discussion are:
1) BUILD THE WALL 
2) SUPREME COURT 
3) STOP WASTING MONEY AND PRECIOUS LIVES ON POINTLESS WARS 




I'm reminded of Winston Churchill's statement made while Nazi Germany was fast rearming that democracies must never strike the first blow. So be it.
