Every few days I will put this post back at the beginning of the blog because each new post makes it fall farther from the front. I have one ambition at the moment. To cripple any politician joining Trump as he feasts on the corpse of the Republican Party, once called the “Party of Lincoln.” I am running against a very nice former policeman, Pete Stauber, who doesn’t have the courage to say anything critical of a man who will be long remembered as having ushered in the lowest point in American History since the traitors (whose statues he is protecting) tried to break America in two.
Here’s my story:
For years after Watergate my mission was to prove that there were good reasons that my family had been a part of the Party of Lincoln for four generations. After President Nixon it was shear stubbornness that kept me in the party. My family was full of wonderful Republicans. Although I was not one of Ronald Reagan’s fans it became easier to be a Republican after the election of the sunny and successful Reagan. I took his call for a party with “Big Tent” seriously. His successors didn’t. They purged Republican moderates and “liberals” like me out of the party until it was ripe for a would be dictator. I began letting go of the party by degrees when I ran for Congress as an Independent in 1992. I ran for the legislature as a Republican even defeating an endorsed Republican candidate in one primary but my independence was no longer welcome. In 2006 I ran one more independent campaign for Congress as as a “Unity” party candidate.
By 2016 the Republican Party was so short of principles or principled candidates that Donald Trump had no difficulty brushing twenty straw men aside. His “What have you got to lose” salesmanship was hard to argue against. But now we know what he had to lose. For the first time since George Washington’s election one man runs America but Donald Trump no George Washington!
If you want to replace a tick with a tiger in this campaign vote for me, Harry Welty. If you need more convincing I am a writer and have a blog full of information. Start by checking out the topics also found on this site either to the right or at the bottom if you are on a cell phone.
I am in the process of organizing a campaign website www.welty4congress.com. You might also hunt down my whimsical Facebook page Harry Welty Give’m Helty.
If you want to send five dollars to someone returning a little bit of Abraham Lincoln to a once Grand Old Party you can make an online donation below. If you are wondering how serious I am two years ago I won 10% of the vote in the primary against Mr. Stauber without campaigning. I simply added my name to the ballot. Only one two things have changed since then. Donald Trump has been revealed to be little short of the Anti-christ and Congressman Stauber has proven to be his loyal lackey.
