The GOP candidates are mighty thin in substance this time around.
I don’t like choosing among the least of the selection of evils.
Big issues with me: National security, border security, illegals, killing Islamofascists, pork-barrel spending and the economy.
Sizing up the current (and former) candidates:
I wanted to vote for him, but never got the chance. Fred was late to the game and never got the real momentum he needed to stay in the race. He came the closest in terms of what I look for in a leader and potential President of the United States. He is strong on national and border security, illegal immigration, the war on Islamofascism, and the 2nd Amendment. Whomever gets the GOP nod for nomination, would be very smart to choose him as a presidential running mate.
Now that Fred is out, that leaves us with the remaining consolation prizes:
His politics are like a damned revolving door. He talks the Conservative talk on the issues but doesn’t walk the walk.
Aside from that, I’ll admit I’m very leery of Mormons and their religion.
I’m agnostic, so I don’t care for religion in general. I care even less for one that by it’s very nature, is exclusive and cultish.
Joseph Smith was a neurotic con man who concocted the “Gold Bible,” engraved on metal plates in an “Egyptian dialect” only he could read, with the aid of magic goggles. He dictated this manuscript to several secretaries from behind a curtain. This is funny, considering he was illiterate.
Brigham Young, the other prominent Mormon figure, was a cold-blooded murderer. (Mountain Meadows Massacre in 1857)
It’s hard to respect followers of a religion founded by a couple of wackjobs.
Secondly, the history of the Mormons in Utah reads like a chapter out of the Book of Mafia.
Human Events on Romney:
……examining his record and listening to his campaign rhetoric indicate to us that he is more a problem-solver than a gut conservative. His “RomneyCare” legislation made Massachusetts the first state in the nation to impose an “individual mandate,” which requires everyone in the state to have health coverage or face significant penalties. And we have concerns about the big-government approach he took as governor, raising state “fees,” according to the Cato Institute, by $500 million and proposing two corporate tax increases totaling close to $400 million a year.
Jeezus, where do I start? He’s the quintessential R.I.N.O. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve yelled at the T.V. screen during his speeches: “Just end the charade and cross the fucking aisle, John”!
He claims to have “gotten the message” with regard to his shitty border security/immigration stance, but that’s belied by his disgraceful coersion with Juan Hernandez, a leading illegal immigration pimp, who’s as fazed by U.S. Code Title 8, as McCain seems to be.
Human Events on McCain:
…..he does not honor many conservative principles. His co-authorship of the Bush-McCain-Kennedy “comprehensive immigration reform” legislation last summer ran directly against our principles of American sovereignty and national security. His position has not been ameliorated by his more recent explanations of border-security measures he might support. His opposition to the Bush tax cuts, his support for economy-strangling measures to control “global warming” and his anti-torture legislation (which didn’t make torture illegal, it already was: McCain’s law only made a clear law vague to the point of unenforceability) all cut against the conservative grain. And so did his McCain-Feingold campaign finance law with its stifling of political free speech.
On Michael Huckabee:
For 10 years, as governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee supported amnesty and taxpayer-financed welfare and health care for illegal aliens and increased taxes numerous times. Now, after sniffing the political winds, he poses as tough on illegal aliens and a tax-whacker.
“Mike Huckabee raised more taxes in 10 years in office than Bill Clinton did in his 12 years.” — writes Ernie Dumas, Arkansas Leader.
In 1999 Mike Huckabee, despite numerous warnings from victims of a serial rapist, pushed for the release of Wayne Dumond. At the time, Huckabee said that there was no real evidence the rapist would strike again and represented no threat to the public. Because of Huckabee’s push for the release, Wayne Dumond was released 25 years early.
Soon after Dumond’s release in 1999, he moved to Smithville, Missouri, where he went on to rape and kill Carol Sue Shields, a 39 year old woman. Dumond went on to kill Sara Andrasek, 23 year old from Platte County, Missouri, a day before his arrest in 2001.
Human Events on Huckabee:
……But his support for the economically disastrous “cap-and-trade” fix for global warming is as bad as Sen. McCain’s position on the issue. The so-called “fair tax” he supports is unworkable. His tax-and-spend policies do not comport with conservative principles, but they do align all too well with Huckabee’s populist rhetoric on the injustice of corporate CEO salaries. His stance on granting special benefits to the children of illegal aliens is also very troubling. On the war, Gov. Huckabee’s understanding of the issues does not impress us. For example, he wants to close the terrorist detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and move the detainees there into U.S. prisons, which — as Sen. Thompson schooled him on in a recent debate — would result in the grant of constitutional rights to terrorist detainees even though they are enemy combatants.
Gov. Huckabee’s grasp of foreign policy does not make us comfortable.
Makes me very uncomfortable, too.
Dennis Kucinich: On behalf of the sane, rational people in the state of Ohio, I want to apologize for the union pukes and brain-damaged sycophants who continue to re-elect this jerk back into his Senate seat.
Ron Paul: Yeah, I know he claims to be a Republican, but he’s in the same unique category as Kucinich: moonbat. He and his legion of “troofers” represent a fringe of the political spectrum usually reserved for the Greens and UFO fanatics.
As for the two leading Dems:
Barack Obama on Foreign Policy:
“And if I am your nominee, my opponent will not be able to say that I voted for the war in Iraq, because I didn’t, or that I gave George Bush the benefit of the doubt on Iran, because I haven’t, or that I support the Bush-Cheney doctrine of not talking to leaders we don’t like, because I profoundly disagree with that approach.
In other words, “I’ll make that pusillanimous waste of skin Jimmy Carter, look good“.
His ideas on penalizing wealthy taxpayers for doing well:
Democrat Barack Obama said Sunday he will push for higher Social Security taxes if elected, viewing it as the best option for improving the retirement program’s finances…during an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Obama said taxing more of a person’s income was the option he would push for if elected president.
The Hildabeast’s view on the economy:
“Many of you are well enough off that … the tax cuts may have helped you. We’re saying that for America to get back on track, we’re probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.” (Hillary Rodham Clinton – June 28, 2004, in San Francisco at a Democrat Party fundraiser)
Didn’t Vladimir Lenin and Karl Marx have the same idea?
Her take on the poor ‘misunderstood’ Islamofascists:
“Well, I believe that terrorism is a tool that has been utilised throughout history to achieve certain objectives. Some have been ideological, others territorial…And I think we’ve got to do a much better job of clarifying what are the motivations, the raisons d’etre of terrorists… I think one of our mistakes has been painting with such a broad brush, which has not been particularly helpful in understanding what it is we were up against when it comes to those who pursue terrorism for whichever ends they’re seeking.” (Hillary Rodham Clinton — interview with The Guardian, published October 23, 2007)
If the Hildabeast or Obama yer Mama gets elected, there will be no lubricant good enough for the screwing they will give this country.
What does a concerned citizen do when the choices are so unappealing and who’s beliefs and convictions come no where near your your own?
As a single female Republican, I hate being a scapegoat for the Democratic female (and male) sheeple who have their heads so far up their asses, it would take a lengthy surgical procedure to extract them.
What do I want?
Foreign policy: I want a strong, confident leader (gender notwitstanding) who will be tough on illegal immigration, build a border wall, stand up to the Euro effetes, tell the ACLU and terrorist fronts like CAIR to shove it, and put America first.
I want a President who won’t pander to foreign countries for the sake of improving our “image”. I want a President who won’t be afraid to tell America (and the world) what they need to hear, not necessarily what they want to hear.
I want a leader who will make it their mission to destroy any and all Islamofascist nation-states and their supporters.
I want them to make it illegal for our corporations to do business with and prop up regimes of America’s enemies, like China.
Domestic policies: Give incentives to American businesses to keep factories and jobs here so that they won’t feel compelled to outsource.
Enforce policies on those who use welfare as a steady source of income, that will make them decide to use birth control, stay in school, become part of the work force, and wean themselves off the teat of public dole.
Hold parents responsible for the criminal activities of their little gangsta children, to include fines and jail.
Clean out death row by expediting the process. Use DNA to determine guilt or innocence. Expedite the release of the not guilty and the execution of the guilty. The prisons are bursting with violent offenders who committed brutal acts against society, and once they get to prison many of them pick up where they left off on the outside. Line ’em up against a wall and mow them down. They’re animals. They were that way before they got there, and rehabilitation is out of the question. Our tax money is wasted keeping them housed, clothed, and fed for the rest of their miserable lives. Bullets are cheap.
I want a President who has all the attributes lacking in the motely crew of 2008 candidates.
Which means I hope the voting machine has a “write-in” candidate space. If it does, I will enter Fred Thompson’s name.
It will be a futile gesture, but at least I can say I voted my conscience.
