By Dave Spencer, Special for USDR.
Practically Republican, the community of concerned citizens rallying to get government to work again, announced a new book by founder Dave Spencer, a fifth generation Rockefeller and member of the Executive Committee of the California Republican Party.
“Practically Republican: How Concerned Citizens Can Renew & Reclaim the GOP,” recalls a “party of the people” that was sensible, reasonable, fiscally conservative and socially progressive, willing to collaborate and compromise with Democrats to solve critical issues. The party has strayed too far from these commonsense principles, Spencer says, and he calls for like-minded GOP supporters to engage with one another and participate in a national conversation about the present and future of the party guided by a simple motto; Let’s Talk.
In Practically Republican, Spencer makes a case for a path forward based on open-minded, non-partisan dialogue. “I founded Practically Republican because our political system was designed where even when we don’t agree, we still commit to getting things done,” Spencer writes in the book’s introduction. “Politics isn’t a business of purity; it’s the art of the possible. It’s about reaching across the aisle to make progress by best serving the American people.”
The book serves as an invitation, for those who are frustrated and feeling discouraged by the current inflexible political environment, to unite and become a force that Washington can’t ignore. The Practically Republican community represents Americans that demand more from their GOP representatives than the rhetoric and posturing that characterizes politics as usual.
Spencer’s organization and book stand as continuations of the Rockefeller family’s legacy of philanthropy and political involvement ––a long history of government service that includes Senators, Governors and Vice President.
