Indiana Lunchpail GOP Won’t Back Down

Updated on January 21, 2012

The Lunchpail Republicans are pushing back against the rolling tide of national special interests, in an effort to improve the lives of their fellow Hoosiers. They choose to take a stand and to make a mark, regarding intrusive legislature which has permeated the Red States.

The basis for their formation is a force of resistance, regarding the scheme of party candidates to serve as puppets, whom instead to choose to support their constituents. The battle lines have been drawn, in the ongoing overwhelmingly unpopular position, toward the acceptance of “Right to Work” States.

In an effort to appeal to disenfranchised working Republicans, Labor leader David Fagan, expressed his discontent stating he is “is fed up with the way the Republican Party has strayed from its foundation in Indiana.” He further added his distress of the desertion of long standing Republican establishment ideals by current State legislative leaders, as well as Governor Mitch Daniels.

This is the crux of the matter for lifelong supporters of the party, whom have been disenfranchised by the party’s shift in national ideology. As a center right, self described conservative, I fully support the Lunchpail Republicans stance and message. The ‘right to work’ bill absolutely interferes with the overriding interest to conduct efficient and effective business.

Mr. Fagan also asserted the following statement which sealed the argument as far as my support is concerned; “Workers and small business owners are no longer being treated as constituents, and our leaders are selling us out to appease the Chamber of Commerce. This is no longer my father’s party, and I am not alone.”

Indeed, you are not alone Sir!

      Sooner said of the things I had been thinking about. Why don't they accept scientific findings? Why do they care about large rich corporations more then they care about the rest of the people? Ok, maybe they don't but to me it looks that way. They could help the U.S more then any of us know, but they wont, but why?

      Thank you for the read & your kind comments vmartinezwilson. I often wonder if the Neo-Republicans infatuation with oil will lead them by way of the destiny of the dinosaur. A little Ironic humor; yet...

      As a progressive, I damn near cheered when I heard about the Lunchpail Republicans. I always understood the ideological differences when it came from left to right, but don't understand why they choose to try and break labor unions. I just doesn't make any sense to me. I get that they're doing it for larger corporations, but it seems to oppose many of the ideals they had held as a core for decades.

      Very good takes on a new political topic. thanks for sharing!

      Allow me to point out my disenfrancised position. A Constituionalist, fiscal small & limited Gov't conservative, I'll argue my personal Social center right point of view but not impose my views upon others right to decide for themselves.

      Show me that candidate, and that is one vote from me.It doesn't exist.

      Sometimes I wonder if I would've been a Republican back in the day when most of them didn't act so crazy. Most Republicans are almost entirely against unions, don't accept scientific findings, and rarely want to touch the defense budget, while not spending money on America's failing infrastructure. Eisenhower warned of the military industrial complex. Can you imagine ANY politician talking that way today, Republican or Democrat? But seeing a Republican warn of a military industrial complex would seem unreal.
