Re-Radicalization of the Republican Party
"Take Back The Party" Part I
In Order To Save the
As the political entity supposedly representing Republican values and ideals, dubbed the Republican National Committee (RNC) is in total disarray, of which it has been for decades.
In fact, the term "republican" has been so morphed into a pejorative, like a four letter word to be avoided and mocked, that regardless of how correct a persons' views, especially those whom are black, if they admit to be republican.
However, with the Party in great identity crisis, now is the opportune time for the self, re-radicalization of professing Republicans, that for the nation's sake, to take over the accepted administration of the RNC, we may take charge of finishing the business of 1854-56.
The Two Phase Mission of the Republican Party
The original Republican Party was specifically established to validate the intent of the Declaration of Independence by its anti-slavery, two phase mission of:
ending chattel slavery, which was completed in by two 1865 events, they
Second, which is yet to fully completed, is ensuring experiential, as a peoples, "equal justice-protections under the law", citizenship "as is enjoyed by white citizens" to the freed chattel slaves, Freemen, refugees, colored peoples, i.e., negroes-blacks, and those of various shades of racial features-colors, etc., biologically mixed with white masters and black female slaves.
The chronological Birth of the Anti-Slavery, Pro-Freedom Political Entity
February 28, 1854 - Ripon, Wisconsin: First meeting at White Schoolhouse meeting to consider party establishment consisting of several groups, such as abolitionists; the Whigs, No-Nothings, and Democrats as the anti-slavery group to save and continue perfecting the Union.
Note: Tapping into the moral mood of the American peoples, by 1858, the upstart Republican Party rapidly grew to dominate nearly all the northern states
June 17th-19th, 1856 - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the firs Republican, presidential, nominating, convention which choose, former US military general, John C. Freemont of California as its candidate.

The Name Republican
New York News Paper Magnate, Horace Greeley printed in June 1854:
"We should not care much whether those thus united (against slavery) were designated 'Whig,' 'Free Democrat' or something else; though we think some simple name like 'Republican' would more fitly designate those who had united to restore the Union to its true mission of champion and promulgator of Liberty rather than propagandist of slavery."
Definition of Radical
Radical - Latin rādīcālis, rādīcālis- stem of radix, means change or action relating to or affecting the fundamental nature of something; far-reaching or thorough, complete, total, comprehensive, exhaustive, sweeping, far-reaching, wide-ranging, extensive, across the board, profound, major, stringent, rigorous, i.e., "radical reform."
The term political radicalism denotes political principles focused on altering social structures through revolutionary means and changing value systems in fundamental ways;
Advocating or based on thorough or complete political or social reform; representing or supporting an extreme section of a political party. "a radical American activist"
Too often the term, “radical” connotes a bad or negative trait, disruptive, such as extreme or fanatical, when that is not always, nor originally was the case.
Actually, radical’s meaning of good or bad is relative to its application as a noun of or adjective describing an individual, group-entity, movement, and/or ethos. "He, she, they are radical!
Example: As applied to Islam, radical is considered evil, whereas, the Muslim activists see it as fundamental and foundational belief in their faith and mission purpose.
The same can be applied to anyone, persons and/or movement such as the 1960’s anti-American movements dubbed The Weathermen, Black Panthers, etc., considered to be radical.
While radicalism is generally associated with violence, such is not always the case, as in that of the "mainstream" Civil Rights movements from 1866 until now.
Though radical in his demands, for civil justice,
Rev.-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the greatest, civilian citizen in
"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal" and " and "...all we say to America is, 'Be true to what you said on paper".
"In the process of gaining our rightful place we must
not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our
thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We
must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and
discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into
physical violence. Again and again we must rise to the majestic heights
of meeting physical force with soul force."
Birth of the
Republican Political Party
Nebraska-Kansas Act of
Believing that continuance of the paradoxical-contradictory to the Declaration of Independence, British inherited, institution of chattel slavery is fatal to the republic, compromising negotiations was not enough to prevent its demise, on February 28, 1854, responding to the Nebraska-Kansas Comprise Act, in the one room school house of Ripon, Wisconsin, 30 individuals decided to establish the Republican Party to save the Union.
What initially became the Republican Party on
No doubt, in the view of the Southern Confederacy, the term radical as applied to the Republicans in the matter of chattel slavery, etc., represented something extreme, fanatical, irresponsible, anti-Constitutional, trouble stirring, un-patriotic, evil, even the end of their mode of economic viability, sustainability and cultural ethos.
Republican radicalism was considered, extreme, negative and must be resisted by any means necessary, including violence.
On the other hand, Republicans deemed radicalism in the matter of chattel slavery, etc., as a positive description of their Party’s noble objective, and defending the fundamental, foundational, i.e., root intention of the Declaration of Independence, as they believed that the nation either strayed from, or never practiced it and was in dire need to immediately fulfill it, lest the republic perishes from the earth…hence, radical measures to save the Union.
Intimidation by the foreign elements performing such emotionally charged antics as: race-carding; accusations of racism; xenophobia; Islam phobia; anti-family, immigrant, minority, even anti-American, will no longer be effective against the returned, revived, re-awakened, true, 1854-56 republicans of the Party of Lincoln.
The political agenda and rhetoric of the newly revived Republicans can't be assailed by the foreigners, nor, defend from their offensive posture, because as, those originals confidently knew in 1854-56, that "that cause" of the United States is the most sacred, GOD- pleasing, moral (spiritual) high ground of the Union.
This imperviousness is due to patriots taking the time to embrace, learn the full knowledge and understanding the Party’s two phase mission of “that cause for which *they gave the last full measure of devotion”, whereby this Republican posterity is resolved to ensure “that these dead shall not have died in vain.”
