On March 20, 1854, in Repon, Wisconsin, the Republican Party began as part of the Abolitionist movement.  At that time, the new territories and states were preparing to become free or slave states.  The initial purpose for organizing was to establish opposition to slavery in these upcoming and future state and territorial votings. A lot of discussion initiated the meeting regarding what to call itself.  It was decided there were to be many issues in the future for the nation other than abolishing slavery.  As they were focused upon the constitution of the Republic and its farsighted visions of a ‘more perfect union’, the title REPUBLICan was official.

As the chairman of this gathering stated, “This is to be a party more befitting and obliged to the original intent and the dignity of man by our founding fathers.”  The first Republican convention was held in 1856 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and its first President-elect was a man from Illinois, Abraham Lincoln.

He assumed the office of President at a very complicated and conflicting time.  The heated issues of states’ rights versus the imposition of centralized federal laws/mandates had always been a heated issue.  And, with the national congresses becoming more favorable toward a nationwide abolition of slavery, the southern states seceded from the union.

Some important social and political dynamics must be considered in the course of these events.  First, the issue that gained the favor of the Southern population was “states’ rights”.  Less than 5% of the population actually owned slaves.  In the northern states, this issue was held in sympathy; meaning, most people agreed with the issue of states’ rights.  This is the primary reason for a lack of support for the ‘union’, and, why the Confederacy was initially winning the (Civil Conflict) war….though there was nothing ‘civil’ about it.

Changing the Narrative

It became obvious this conflict was going to end badly if the issues and narrative were not changed.  Even men like Robert E. Lee, the director of West Point and an avid patriot, chose to fight for states’ rights.  So, the wise and relevant issue of slavery came to the forefront with the Emancipation Proclamation.  This changed the entire tide of the conflict.  All said and done, it was the ‘Abolitionist-Republican Party’ that asserted the values of freedom and equality, in its more comprehensive and authentic manner, to America.

A Converse Complexity

Resolving a conflict does not mean the cause is resolved.  The Reconstruction period, after the Civil War, was a mix of exploitations, political and military impositions, a displaced population of both whites and blacks, radical racial cults such as the KKK, and economic chaos, to mention the most general of issues.  The darker side of the human creature continued in many devious forms.

The Democratic Party was the governing party of the Confederacy, a “states’ rights” party.  But, it was also a party of slavery, the party that remained in power after the civil war, and continued the oppression (and controlled management) of those who were once (officially) slaves, maintained the political leverages to control elections, controlled the newspapers, protected the elite in the court systems and, in general, directed the profiteering in their favor.  This was the undercurrent of power throughout the reconstruction era of the ‘post-Civil War’.

The Irony

As a ‘post-note’:  The above paragraph does sound familiar.  It’s the same Democratic Party doing the same thing today; and, ironically, using those most victimized to do its dirty work along with the shallow and ignorant minded.

History has a way of being selective. If a person does not look closely and mindfully, he/she will be doing and incentivizing the very thing they condemn or oppose.  For example, the only presidents that vetoed legislation to provide equal voting rights to blacks, Native Americans and women, were Democrats.  Woodrow Wilson first vetoed it but was persuaded to change his mind after the political fallout.

The KKK originated and was fostered in the south (and north) by the Democratic party.  If one were to recently recall, George Wallace (a KKK Democrat) was almost the candidate for the American Presidency until he was shot.

The Democratic Party has no defined ‘platform’ other than what will buy votes at the moment.  Great examples are HUD, under the pretense of providing affordable housing at the taxpayers’ expense, it was actually a ploy to consolidate particular groups of people into what is, essentially, a concentration regimen and create a dependency that assures a voting block to support the political structure that supports them. Creating a governmental and “welfare state” is the overall objective of this Marxist-fascist agenda. This, in itself, by definition, is a form of ‘slavery’, indentured servitude, thus creating a subculture of people with no apparent opportunity for individualism.

Today, after over a half-century of this ‘concentrationism’, we find the greatest concentration of gangs, crime, single parenting, violence and killings. This same ‘metro-dynamics’ elects state and local governments that continue to perpetuate this mindset of anger and futility. It’s a situation contrary to all laws of nature.  And, the old saying “You can’t fool Mother Nature” also applies to the saying “You can fool the human mind but you can’t fool Reality”.

A Political Party that Lost Its Way

Originally and historically, the ‘Abolitionist Republican Party’ was and has been the ‘progressive party’ in the pursuit of liberty as originally intended by the Constitution of this Republic. For over one and half centuries, the due course of ‘liberation’, national parks to preserve our unique landscape, the mature management of horrific wars (such as WW2), development of our interstate highway system for commerce of mobility, voting rights, preservation of a judicial and legal system with the best possible integrity, natural resource storage and reserves for contingencies, preserving the integrity of the constitutional principles without dictates to micro-manage our personal lives, are mature examples of what a constitutional government is for.  If we had to rename the Abolitionist Republican Party it should be the ‘Preservation Party’.

Yet, due to obvious and mysterious reasons, this ‘party of principles’ has been infiltrated by those who know nothing about the party’s original and fundamental platform and purpose.  It is managed by ignorant bureaucrats and ‘children of political nepotism’.  It would be so easy, especially in today’s media technology, to communicate the reality of the past and present, and do so in a powerfully aggressive manner.  Yet, this ignorance, and/or cowardice, has paralyzed a perfectly good party of principle.

In conclusion:

If, in 1862, the narrative could be changed from “states’ rights” to “human rights” and the real origin and purpose of ABOLITION OF SLAVERY AND PRESERVATION OF OUR CONSTITUTIONAL INTEGRITY, thus bringing us closer to a ‘more perfect union’ of principles, the same can be done today. The obstacles are simple….a collective of cowardice, ignorance and self-interests forego the innate integrity of the Abolitionist-Republican Party.

The ‘preservation’ of a perfectly fine Constitutional Republic hinges delicately on those who have the courage to change the narrative from falsehoods and platitudes to the reality of our political history and present times.
