Let’s face it, if you’re a conservative looking for a candidate in this election, you’re screwed.
McCain helped curtail some of our First Amendment rights with his campaign finance reform bill. He wants to shut down Gitmo. He thinks the rights of private citizens to sell firearms to each other should be infringed, i.e., closing the so-called gun show loophole. He derailed any possibility of the GOP prohibiting fillibusters of Supreme Court nominees in the Senate with his gang of 14. He was against the Bush tax cuts before he was for them. If elected president, he wants to work with Al Gore to reduce carbon emissions. He doesn’t want to drill in ANWAR for fear of bruising a caribou. He wants to spit in the face of people trying to gain legal citizenship in the US by granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.
In short, McCain is a liberal who is far more likely to attack members of his party than man up and point out democrats’ shortcomings.
Obama is a socialist with totalitarian leadings. These stories indicate that he would much rather shut down those who tell the truth than respond to their accusations http://www.newsmax.com/politics/Obama_Wants_NRA_Ads_Banne/2008/09/27/135118.html?s=al&promo_code=6BBA-1 http://www.kmov.com/video/index.html?nvid=285793&shu=1
Biden is a flaming liberal and a rabid anti-gunner. Let’s not forget this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nkavwuWE5eQ&feature=related
The Libertarians support everyone’s individual right to do what they want, so long as no one else is harmed. This point of view does not include unborn babies, however. They can be ripped out of the womb and tossed in the trash if their moms feel like it.
The Constitution Party has a platform that most conservatives can get behind except for a weak stance on the war on terror. We can’t bury our heads in the sand and try to be isolationists in this day and age.
In short, Sarah Palin is the only candidate worth voting for and she has to tow McCain’s line. If she were at the top of the ticket, I would vote for her.
My dillweed republican congresscritter voted for the bail-out bill (both times). He was the only reason I was going to bother showing up at the polls.
Here’s to Palin and Jindal in 2012.
