Scott Brown MA: Let America Be America Again

Source: Scott Brown MA: Let America Be America Again

If control of the Senate comes down to who wins the Massachusetts Senate race, then of course as a Liberal Democrat I'm going to support Elisabeth Warren. Even if she's the Bernie Sanders of Massachusetts, perhaps the only admitted Democratic Socialist in Congress. Not the only one, just the only admitted Democratic Socialist in Congress, representing Vermont in the Senate. Or perhaps even the Socialist Republic of Vermont, if you look at the politics up there.

But if this race is just about who I prefer to win this race, as a Marylander who has no vote in this race, I prefer Senator Scott Brown politically and perhaps culturally. A solid Liberal or even Conservative (in the classical sense) on social issues and civil liberties, as well as a real fiscal conservative. A real fiscal conservative who believes that no matter what government is doing, that it's only doing for the people, what they can't do for themselves. And it's doing it as efficiently as possible and that includes the whole government , including defense.

Scott Brown a real fiscal conservative, that expects the best bang out of all of our tax dollars. As opposed to some of the fake fiscal conservatives in the Tea Party, that believes there's no such thing as waste in the 700B$ defense budget and that there's never a time to cut the defense budget. Senator Scott Brown is not a Tea Party Republican, but more of a Goldwater/Reagan Republican. Who doesn't come off as an elitist, but someone that can connect with working class people. Which is how Ron Reagan was able to win over Blue-Collar Democrats.

Senator Brown is a get government out of our boardrooms and bedrooms Republican. That government shouldn't be controlling how Americans live their lives, unlike the current Tea Party. This is not Rick Santorum, even though they have similar appeal to Blue-Collar Republicans, but again a Northeastern Republican, who is politically similar to someone like Barry Goldwater, Ron Reagan, Bill Buckley perhaps. But probably not quite as libertarian as Bill Buckley.

Senator Brown is not a big government Neoconservative, who puts national security and there version of national morality, over civil liberties and personal freedom, like Rick Santorum. Vs a JFK Liberal Democrat, in this Senate race. But more like Ron Reagan, or Olympia Snowe, (Senator from Maine) vs George McGovern or Dennis Kucinich, in Elizabeth Warren. And Scott Brown represents the best of what the GOP use to be and what they have to get back to, to remain a major political party.

Someone who says that America is for everyone that represents the best for America and who is productive, will work hard support our rule of law, etc, regardless of their race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, gender. Instead of tribalist who says that their form of America and their factions of Americans are the real American patriots and everyone else are invaders to their America. Scott Brown is not a Pat Buchanan Republican but more like a Northeastern Classical Conservative who wants individual freedom for all Americans.
