GOP needs candidates

Republicans are embracing Democratic policies while ignoring the Tea Party. This is a big mistake – just as they are shunning Christians because they are not for abortion and gay marriage.

Karl Rove and other Republicans came out so hard against GOP candidates who disagreed with them on social issues and candidates with Tea Party ideas that we lost the last election.

Everyone will not agree on every issue, but if the Republicans want to grow the party, they cannot do so by ignoring their base. There are more Christians and more Republicans in the Tea Party as they see where this administration is taking us with Obamacare, debt and social issues.

Also, that Gang of Eight is making a big mistake pushing the immigration bill without securing the border. I am for fixing the country, not candidates winning elections to push Democratic policies that make the government bigger with more people being supported by the hardworking taxpayer.

We need more candidates such as U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina – people who stand for something, not candidates who blur the issues.
