HISTORICAL QUOTE OF THE WEEK - "Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other." ABRAHAM LINCOLN

Tuesday, February 05, 2008


Once again we are in an election year and once again Republicans are faced with a dilema. Do we stand for principle and stick to our guns and our Conservative beliefs only, or do we vote for the electability of the candidate available.

It is becoming more obvious with each passing day and at the end of this Super Tuesday, if the polls are anywhere close to correct, John McCain will either have the nomination through winning enough delagates or will be close enough that he will be unbeatable with the remaining Primaries that fall between now and June.

As a Conservative I, like you have a considerable amount of anger and irratation toward the Senator from Arizona. And like you I would rather have someone else as the GOP nominee. But facing the facts it does not look like that will be the case.

So now we must ask ourselves this question: Are we irritated enough with John McCain to allow Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama to become President and along with a liberal Democrat Congress have free reign for at least two years to inact their liberal/Socialist agenda, forcing massive Government entitlements and tax increases on the American people, surrendering to Islamic Fascists and the United Nations while taking this country down the slippery path to Socialism ?

My Conservative friends that is what we are facing. Many including such prominant Conservatives like Ann Coulter have already voiced their anger at McCain and their willingness to back a Hillary White House run. So are we angered enough to put that anger above our distrust of liberals and the agenda that we have fought against our entire political lives ?

I realize that McCain is left of most of us and that his crossing of the isle and the partnerships that he has forged in the past are wrong for our Conservative beliefs and with most of our Republican dogma, but is it so much that we are willing to surrender this nation to the leadership of Hillary or an even more liberal Obama ?

I have heard more times than I wish to count that it took a Carter to make room for Reagan. While that may be partially true, two unfettered years of a Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama administration combined with a liberal Democrat Congress will make the Carter years seem like a walk in the park.

Many high profile Conservatives have stated and it would seem that many who are just voters agree that we should let this happen to insure the return of Congress to the GOP in 2010 and the Presidency in 2012. While this would likely happen after a Clinton or Obama White House, the impact and the damage caused by just two years of unfettered liberal/Socialist governing will create more damage that could possibly be reveresed in even a decade or more after their demise in 2010 and 2012.

I have asked the following question in a previous post and fell the need to repeat it again: How many Government programs that have been passed and funded have we ever seen either reveresed or non-funded ? Almost zero is any. Once a Government program begins it is there forever. Hillary alone has proposed more than 800 BILLION in increased Government entitlement programs.

The devistation to our military under Clinton or Obama may very well result in an even far greater damage than the Socialist Domestic agenda. When President Reagan rebuilt the military after the Carter years it took his first term in office to get the United States back up to par from a military stand point. We faced an entirely different enemy then Reagan did with the Soviet Union.

Even with a weak military after Carter the Soviets still remained in check because of the Nuclear deterent. They still had a fear of a possible Nuclear confrontation with the United States and even though the made in roads in Afghanistan they avoided any direct confrontation with us BECAUSE of our Nuclear capability even with a weaker military.

Today's enemy does not fear our Nuclear capability. The ONLY deterent we have against Islamic Fascism is the strength of our military and the ability to hunt down these terrorist monsters and kill them BEFORE they kill us. If we under a Clinton or Obama administration show any weakness to these Islamic factions they will quickly take advantage of it and make huge in roads in the Middle East and we will, not may, but WILL have another major attack on our own soil.

Is our anger toward John McCain enough to risk this probability with Hillary or Barack as President ? Both have indicated that the best actions against our enemies is to try and talk to them INCLUDING Usama bin Laden. These Islamic radicals do not talk, they kill and kill only. There is one thing they fear and/or respect and that is strength though might. If we are weakened or show ANY weakness in our resolve they WILL take advantage of it and we will be attacked and Americans will be killed ....PERIOD ! Do you believe that Iran will fade away because Bush is gone and Hillary or Obama are willing to talk ? Just the opposite will happen! Iran WILL become the force that everyone fears it COULD become.

So do we just sit back and derail John McCain and risk a Hillary or Obama ? I am NOT a McCain fan but I will not sit back and allow my non-vote because of my irritation toward McCain even remotely help Hillary or Obama get the Presidency.

If that happens then Conservatives will be crying the blues this time next year when Hillary or Obama's agenda is being passed quickly by a liberal Congress. We will be crying foul as they begin pulling troops our of Iraq and we see Al Qaeda and other Islamic Fascists begin ratchiting up the rhetoric and the attacks. We will protest as Hillary or Obama try to appease Iran. And if it happens we have no one to blame but ourselves.

We can stand on our Conservative principles and vote on electability at the same time. What we believe and stand for is not compromised because we vote for what we have. It is our solemn obligation to vote and to make our voice heard in our Constitutional Republic. Protesting our disgust by NOT voting only casts a vote for Hillary or Obama BECAUSE we did not take ANY stand.

The people still are the owners of this land and we still, if we unite as we did against Amnesty, can force Washington to comply. Hillary and Obama do not care what the people think because in their liberal ideas, it is they who must tell us what is best for the nation, best for our pocket books and best for our daily living.

I only hope that we as Conservatives and Republicans have learned the lesson of 2006 when the non-voting protest by Conservatives against the GOP Majority allowed the Pelosi/Reid do nothing Congress. If not, then we will face a Hillary/Obama do everything Socialist White House with a liberal Congress and a weakened defense capability spearheaded by surrender!

Too much doom and gloom rhetoric Ken. If the Republicans hadn't blown up government spending, implemented so many new programs and unfunded federal mandates, and borrowed so heavily from foreign governments this country would be in far better shape.

I'm quite sure most Americans don't have a clue about the disasterous monetary policies of this President and the Republican congress. But, one can just look at Bush's $3.1 trillion federal budget that he is proposing (the last year under Clinton total government spending was just under $1.8 trillion). It projects out more than $2 trillion in deficits over the next 10 years. When he came to office, we were looking at budget surpluses.

Bush's projects are simply unsustainable. Taxes will rise no matter who is President because foreign governments are not going to continue to bail us out and we have to clean up the financial mess that Bush has left us with.

If you look it up, Reagan signed what was then the biggest tax increase in American history when he saw how large the deficits were getting. Reagan understood the dangers of long-term deficits. Bush never learned and took the easy way out by pushing off the problems on future presidents, politicians, and the rest of us.

The fiscal realities of the country will handcuff the next president and the next Congress from doing much.

I admire and Love McCain for his service to our Country.

But my conservative principals must kick in sometime and it's gotta be today.

McCain is just to Liberal



Gang of 14 etc..

I just cant do it. I have given this so much thought my head hurts.

I wanted Fred, and he left me high and dry.

But I must vote my concience.

And that's got to be Romney.

Marie, I understand voting for Romney and if I were still having to cast my vote in a Primary would have a tough decision also.

But the point here is that when all the dust clears and McCain ends up as the nominee are Republicans, especially Conservatives going to just sit back and do the non-protest vote thing again and let the Dems have the White House ?

Rob, while I agree that some of what was started by the GOP spending problem will be passed on to the next occupant, I still beleive that Hillary or Obama would take this country down a Socialistic path that we may not be able to recover from.

That combined with their dislike of the military and wanting to try to , "talk," to factions that will not talk while weakening our defenses is not a scenerio that this country needs.

That is, in my opinion, the fundamental difference in what the parties are promoting. Though I am not at all a McCain person, he at least will keep a strong military and not impliment many social programs like Universal Health Care and the other 800 billion that Hillary has proposed.

Health Care is an issue but government is NOT the answer.

Limited government, less taxation, fiscal responsibility, strong defensive capability, finish this war with victory!), and a secure border are my main issues.

I guess as a moderate I don't understand your disdain for McCain working on Bipartisan solutions. That is what this country needs, two parties that can work together and find compromise to solve real problems.

Ken, your dribble about Democrat's spending money holds no water. The last three Republican Presidents have spent us into the poor house. If it wasn't for Bill Clinton listening to Greenspan and keeping spending down we would be in much worse shape.

The consevatives you hold up as so wonderful: Gingrich, DeLay, etc. are why the Conservative Republicains are out of touch (wonderful examples of honesty in professional and personal lives).

When the Republician party gets back to it's roots of fiscal responsibility of:
1. Small government.
2. Staying out of the lives of individuals.
3. Balancing the budget.

we might take it seriously again.

The social conservatives have hijacked and ruined the party. It has become the party of social conservatives and tax and spend into deficits conservatives that are out of touch with most of the country.

The problem is just because you say it over and over again doesn't make it so. The emperor has no clothes and the American public can see that the conservatives now stand for spending money like mad, obstructing compromise, and spreading hatred with their social policies.

Your gloom and doom about what will happen if Obama wins in 2008 doesn't hold up. It can't be worse than having an other conservative in the white house and most of the country appears to think it may be much better.

P.S. If McCain wins and picks Huckabee as VP that will be the biggest mistake he can make. The moderates won't touch Huckabee with a 10 foot pole.
