Commentary | Being an American Supersedes Being a Republican



By Don Jans

For to long the Republican Party has claimed to be the conservative party while clinging to big government individuals. The Republican nominees for president over the last many years have all favored big government as opposed to protecting individual rights and liberties. That would include George H. W. Bush, Bob Dole, George W. Bush, John McCain, and of course perhaps the worst of all Mitt Romney. During this same time, we have had big government McConnell lead the Senate, and big government proponents John Boehner, Paul Ryan, and Kevin McCarthy in the house.

Along came Donald Trump who said all the same things the big government Republicans had said about closing the porous border, reducing regulations, lowering tax rates, making government smaller, exposing and draining the swamp that is Washington, and returning the sovereignty of the nation back to the people while making those in government servants again. The big difference between Donald Trump and the big government Republicans was that what Mr. Trump said, he meant and did.

The big government Republicans despised Donald Trump for his truly conservative and pro people action policies almost as much as the Communists (Democrats) did. So much did the big government Republicans despise Donald Trump for his pro people policies that even though the evidence was overwhelming that the 2020 election was stolen by the Communists (Democrats), the big government Republicans echoed the same ridiculous claims the freedom hating left did. Not one big government Republican, including McCarthy, actively sought to expose the treasonous activity of the Communists (Democrats)

And when the anti-Constitution, anti-freedom, and anti-American Communists (Democrats) voted to impeach Donald Trump for making a speech that was claimed to trigger a previously planned demonstration, many of the big government Republicans, including McConnell, McCarthy, Romney, and Cheney became as outspoken against Donald Trump as did the Communists (Democrats).

It is claimed that the Republican party is divided. The division seems to be that the masses of conservative Republicans are divided from the big government philosophy of the Republican elites. Kevin McCarthy, a protege of Romney sycophant Paul Ryan, once again revealed his true position when he supported Liz Cheney to remain in leadership. Liz Cheney is clearly more in line with the other party than she is with the grass roots of the Republican party.

To the Freedom Loving Americans who are members of the House and the Senate, you were elected to represent the masses of Freedom Loving Americans. It is high time you represented us and purged the big government proponents such as McConnell, McCarthy, and Cheney from any leadership positions. They are not leaders of the pro American Republicans but are simply “useful idiots” of the Communists (Democrats). We Freedom Loving Americans have seen that there are people who will run for office and do what they tell us they will do. We witnessed that in the person of Donald Trump, a person you, the Republican leadership or “useful idiots” would not embrace and support.

We Freedom Loving Americans are no longer content with promises. We learned actions are more powerful than words. We Freedom Loving Americans are witnessing the destruction of our Constitution and the forsaking of the protections of our individual liberties and rights, and we recognize that the big government Republicans are as responsible for these reprehensible actions as they play their role as “useful idiots” to the Freedom hating Communists (Democrats). You in the house and senate who refer to yourselves as Freedom Loving Americans, must remove big government advocates from leadership or you will find yourselves removed from your representative positions. Label us as you would, but understand that above all we love individual liberty and freedom and are as determined to remain free as were our founders determined to become free.

Don’s speaking approach is the same as his writing approach, and that is to be direct and straight forward with no regard for the current mandated approach of political correctness. 

Samuel Adams said, “It does not take a majority to prevail… but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.” If we are to remain free, we must be about setting brushfires of freedom. Visit his website:

The problem is the open Republican primary elections.

Non-Republicans (including Democrats!) voting in Republican primaries is why most Congressional Republicans are to the LEFT of the Republican voter base.

Yet only FIVE states hold closed Republican primaries!
