Should the Freedom Caucus become the Federalist Caucus?

ObamaCareLite. RyanCare. TrumpCare. RINOcare.

Whatever you want to call it, the lines have been drawn between certain conservative Republicans in Congress and the rest of the GOP. Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and in particular the Freedom Caucus are opposed to Paul Ryan’s proposal. It may be time to talk to the Freedom Caucus and see how we can work with them.

Here’s a letter from a Federalist who offered some great ideas.

Hi JD,

Paul Ryan basically signaled that he could not care less about the Freedom Caucus or reigning in our out of control Federal Government. Historically the party has shown that they will PRIMARY anyone who goes up against leadership. Ryan has basically told the Freedom Caucus that the Leadership Health Care Package will pass and to get on board.

Strategically the timing might never be better for Legislators committed to Limited Government and the balance of power between the 3 branches and the states to join The Federalist Party.

Many pundits will argue that these courageous politicians making the switch will be committing political suicide. My experience is that when a Politician puts the people ahead of his party and career, usually the career takes off!

Anyway, keep up your great work.

    I believe The Freedom Caucus members lose a lot of power by staying in the Republican Party. Tremendous pressure is applied to put Party ahead of Principle. Their loyalty is taken for granted. Charles Krauthammer said it best “Conservatives need to fall on their sword”. Freedom Caucus members have already taken the first step in separating themselves from the left moving Republican Party. Now is the perfect storm to make the next step.

    I don’t know what more of an indication the conservatives in Congress need to go third party than the fact that not only are they fighting the Democrats, but the Republican establishment as well.
    Just the shenanigans the Republicans pulled with the delegates at the Convention would’ve been enough for me to say it’s over, third party here I come.
    And why not? The Democrats have “Independents” that caucus with them. The Federalists could caucus with the Republicans when legislation falls in line with conservative principles and liberty. Otherwise, stand your ground and take it to the people. We see the rot and the stench coming from both parties. We’ll stand with you if you’ll stand for us.
