AMAC offers a ‘preamble’ to the GOP Party Platform

Dan Weber: highlight the basic sustaining notions of American democracy that career politicians so often forget

PRLog - Aug. 28, 2012 - TAMPA, FL, Aug 28 – Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens, offered support for important components of the GOP Platform today, and sought to create a rallying point for this year’s presidential elections.

He noted in an OpEd article in this morning’s Tampa Tribune that AMAC supports the repeal of Obamacare, Social Security reform and the protection of religious liberty.  But, he suggested that the platform would benefit from the addition of a not-so-new non-policy idea.

“Because politics is ultimately not about programs and policies but the great ideas, we believe Americans would find nothing more heartening than a preamble to this year's platform that in speaking to the crisis of our time points to the basic sustaining notions of American democracy that career politicians so often forget,” Weber wrote.

He singled out President Ronald Reagan in his article noting that “his greatness as a president rested on his understanding of the greatness of America.”  And, the AMAC chief cited Paul Ryan’s remarks during a recent appearance with Mitt Romney.  Ryan said: “America is more than just a place. … It's an idea. It's the only country founded on an idea. Our rights come from nature and God, not government."

Weber said that Ryan’s observation echoed those of President Reagan, providing what he called an “eloquent” way to set this year’s GOP platform apart and renew the spirit of the American people.  

As President Reagan put it: "It is time for the world to know our intellectual and spiritual values are rooted in the source of all strength, a belief in a Supreme Being, and a law higher than our own."
