“The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.” — Marcus Aurelius
“Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom, and then lost it, have never known it again.” — Ronald Reagan
“The state is the great fictitious entity by which everyone seeks to live at the expense of everyone else.” — Frédéric Bastiat< "I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it." -- Thomas Jefferson Now that Mitt Romney has dropped out of the race and all but assured that John McCain will win the Republican nomination, we can get down to the real important issues. John McCain can let the real McCain out, since the party has nobody else to run to. He can push his global warming agenda, talk about campaign finance reform, and ensure that the families of missing Vietnam Veterans never get their hands on the classified documents concerning Vietnam. Most importantly, the press can completely ignore the Republican candidates and boast 24 hours a day, seven days a week about how exciting both Clinton and Obama are and propagandize to the American public that the winner should be the next President. McCain can continue to move to the left of what he's already been and who knows, maybe he will out socialist the left wing candidates, and of course we Republicans will vote for him no matter what because it's better to have McCain than the evil boogeyman... or woman, whatever the case may be. Both Obama and Clinton now can start throwing the mud at McCain and bring the public perception of him down while the McCain can continue to boast about his respect and admiration he has for Senator Hillary Clinton... and he can call Republicans racist for not supporting his amnesty bill... maybe that's why so many conservatives rallied around McCain, they were afraid of being "outed as racist" by him if they didn't jump in his corner. Good move John, I would have never thought of that. The problem with McCain being President is, even though there's no guarantees we would get a conservative with any administration, the chances of McCain governing to the left is significantly higher because of his erratic record. He'll say anything, he'll do anything to get elected. If he can't unite the Republicans, if we can't get excited about John McCain's nomination, how can we expected the rest of the nation to vote for him? But let's say he does win, are you comfortable that he will be a conservative President? I'm not. I don't believe that John McCain will be our friend in the White House. I think John McCain will be a terrible President should he win, and be a one term President. That means we will have a Democrat in the White House for the following four years and risk be faced with battling an incumbent liberal President the election after that. That is to say, if John McCain is a liberal President, we handed the White House over to Big Government Liberals not for four years, not eight years, but for 12 years, all because we'd rather put party over principle. I'm not willing to take that risk, not for John McCain. I'm asking you, my fellow conservatives, when you go to vote this coming Saturday, or to the readers in other sates in your own separate primaries, I'm asking you to look inside your heart, look into the eyes of the remaining Republican candidates, listen to them again, all of them, even the ones you don't like. Read about them, study them, most importantly, vote your conscience. At least by doing so, you washed your hands clean when the guy you didn't vote for screws America up.
