So we have John McCain…

For a while now I have wondered if it was worth putting this blog post up. If anyone would read it and if anyone would do anything about it was a big concern of mine. So here it goes… I AM DONE DEFENDING REPUBLICANS!!!!!!!!!!!!

When the primary came around many Republicans were excited to see new faces emerge. After dealing with years of President Bush not being as right winged as we liked we could elect someone that would bring about the right amount of conservatism. As I used to be very active and still somewhat active in Republican politics, it has been a major concern of mine. We need to get back to the principles of Thomas Jefferson, Calvin Coolidge, Barry Goldwater, and Ronald Reagan. This is the type of government that stays out of the way of businesses and citizens and just protects us from enemies.

As usual with many Republicans believing in the same things I believe in but all having it bundled a little differently, I personally could not make up my mind on who to support. Who is the true right winger we need?

The argument continued and it was always electability vs. conservativism and you tried to have the most of both. Well we had Rudy then he was taken down with things in his closet and not being experienced. We then had Romney who was Mormon but conservative. Then we had Fred Thompson who seemed conservative and electable but thought it was a good idea to pretend to run longer than to actually run. We then had Mike Huckabee who started out conservative but then pandered only to the social conservative and he started to get populist. Last but not least we had Ron Paul who was the libertarian wing from the Goldwater days. For the most part he was right wing but his personality did not grasp people.

In the debate of electability vs. conservativism who won?

To me John McCain is mostly not a Conservative. He might be electable but against a young African-American who can guide a crowd with or without a platform (the political one) McCain is more than likely dead in the water.

Republicans, what did we learn? Conservatives are you voting for McCain or Bob Barr? I know it is a hard choice for me. As Barr has a almost nil chance it almost feels good to say to the Republican party, “find us real candidates!”

  2. I read it.

    McCain wasnt my first choice, but he is probably the one you listed who has a chance this fall.

  3. If you possess the correct values and principles where you’ve reasonably prioritized them AND you’ve done your homework on the net ( which PCCapitalist clearly hasn’t done ) then you came to the correct conclusion only one conservative candidate ran for the presidency.

    If you do not and did not then you are incapable for your own governance…the citizens hope the residents put forth the effort to know what we’ve all been instructed to do in the next election.
