Looking back on what has been going on lately, with the people who were the closest to being true conservatives already out of the race, and the ones that are left are sparring between themselves as “the one that is more conservative.” When it comes to conservatism, Romney says he is Conservative, but I have doubts because when it comes to true conservatism, there are NO conservatives out there running for office, or in office. Though, he is the most conservative of the ones running, and I feel that the most Liberal of the bunch is McCain. McCain is far from a Conservative. If you want to see the closest to a true conservative of recent history, look back at Ronald Reagan. Yes I brought his name up. The Reason? Because everyone running for the Presidency this election year, on the Republican side has claimed to be the next Reagan. Sadly, there is no next Reagan. But the Republicans have an even bigger problem.
When the candidates, who they want to run, are no longer in the race, a lot of them (the voters) will “sit out of the election” and just let the chips fall where they may. But I have a question for all of you who are thinking of doing just that.
Would you rather have someone in the Office of President, that you would be able to agree with some of the time…….or would you rather have someone who you would never agree with?
Now, I know that I would rather have someone in that office that I could agree with on some of the issues. McCain’s good points include keeping America safe from Terrorism and acknowledging that we are in a War…..because we are. A war, as I heard on the Glenn Beck show today from a caller, has never been declared.
But here is a problem with that way of thinking. War was declared on us. There is no need for us to declare war because it was declared on us in the first place. At least McCain doesn’t want to run and hide like the Democrats and a few of the whimpy side of the Republicans want. You may not like President Bush, but at least because of his actions, there have been NO MORE attacks on the United States homeland since 9/11. Even if you do not like Bush, or his ideals, you have to admit, that he has done the right things to keep us safe….unless you are like the Democrats who seem to want us NOT SAFE.
Huckabee, I am not even going to consider here because he is all but out now. Romney, I think could be a good president, , but I doubt if he will get it. But he still is nowhere near who I wanted. That person is long gone.
Obama, who now has the murderer of Chappaquiddick endorsing him, has his allegiance to something that isn’t the United States. His allegiance is to the African nation that his church says “it’s A congregation with a non-negotiable COMMITMENT TO AFRICA.” If his allegiance is to Africa……how can he be president of the United States when he has no allegiance to it?
And Hillary Clinton is nothing short of a socialist who wants nothing but complete socialistic power to tax the people into oblivian to pay for the massive programs that she says we have to have. People, even free health care, has to be paid for somehow, and you WILL pay for it in increased taxes.
But now, with Arnold Schwartzenegger endorsing McCain we have something that no one is thinking of. Schwartzenegger is NOT a Conservative. Guilianni is NOT a Conservative. McCain is saying he is a Conservative but he is not. All three are actually from the Left side of the Republican Party. What the party needs, is someone that is from the Right side of the party…but that isn’t going to happen, so, if either McCain or Romney get the nomination, the best thing we can do as Republicans, is to Vote on November 7th. Not hold out. Because you know that the Democrats will not do that. They won’t stay home from the polls on that day because the person that they supported is not in the race anymore. We as Republicans will lose if we do that. We may lose anyway….but we will really lose if we don’t get out and vote in force. It is like Glenn Beck said, it is better to have someone as President, who you will be able to agree with at least some of the time, rather than have someone in that office who you will NEVER agree with. Which would be worse? If would be worse to have someone in the office who you would never agree with. So, we need to vote. Each and every one of us. We have to win. Our country’s safety depends on it.
But, if we elect John McCain or Romney, we will have to stay on the alert to make him know, the things that we want. We do not want Amnesty for the illegals. We do not want an open border. We do not want to lose the war on Terror. We do not want added taxes. And we cannot let the person who wins the Presidency forget what we want. EVER. It is better to have someone in office who will agree with us some of the time, because we could persuade them on the other issues if we have to. But someone who doesn’t agree with us at anytime? We would never be able to get them to agree with us. NO MATTER WHAT! Think about that before you sit out the vote.
