Wednesday night at The Standard Restaurant in Nashville was a sight to see. A group of individuals from all different backgrounds and walks of life coming together in support of their common political beliefs, and it was not a Democratic Party event. On the contrary, It was the kick off fundraiser for the Tennessee Republican Minority Coalition, a group that aims at uniting republicans of all walks of life in a common cause.
Despite the "A list" of speakers there was little mentioned about the purpose of the group. So allow me to expand on this point. Our purpose is a concise and simple one; get groups of people with similar values of faith, family, freedom, and fiscal responsibility to unite in their efforts to uproot an ever continual socialist leaning government. Once again it is a simple purpose indeed. I think President Woodrow Wilson put it best "If you come at me with your fists doubled, I think I can promise you that mine will double as fast as yours; but if you come to me and say, 'Let us sit down and take counsel together, and, if we differ from each other, understand why it is that we differ, just what the points at issue are,' we will presently find that we are not so far apart after all, that the points on which we differ are few and the points on which we agree are many, and that if we only have the patience and the candor and the desire to get together, we will get together.”
If we can get the Minority groups to rally around the Republican Party and the 60 percent of values that they have in common rather than the 40% of trivial differences between them then we can effect positive change for years to come.
