Skip to comments.Conservatives we have to get our Act Together!
Posted on 07/15/2014 6:51:41 AM PDT by 2nd Amendment
Fellow conservatives, now is the time for us to decide on a 2016 Presidential candidate. With Hillary the ostensible and heavily flawed democratic nominee, we must decide early and decisively on a conservative contender. We cannot have years of dumb debates that let the democrats chew us up and continue their regime of destruction. Here are some of my handicaps for the 2016 election. 1.Christie - definitely a RINO, back stabbing, recent convert to pro-life positions. -I cannot vote for this man! 2. Jeb Bush - perhaps the most competent of the Bushes, but now way. Way too many Bushes with their baggage. Would vote for him with gag response. 3. Rick Perry- Somewhat more attractive, but inarticulate and too close to Bushes - perhaps weak on immigration. Would vote reluctantly. 4. Sarah - Definitely an ideologically sound candidate. Bit shrill and been kneecapped by liberals - probably unelectable. Would vote avidly for her. 5. Scott Walker. Kinda of an unknown for me. Right on the issues,conscientious fighter . . but little nationwide presence. No problem voting for him. 6. Ted Cruz. Finally a candidate that is moral, rock steady on all the major issues. Been savagely attacked by both Dems and Repubs. Dismissed by Bill O'Reilly and Laura Ingram. A little light on the Resume, but my favorite candidate. Reaganesque in all of his actions. Definitely the candidate to turn America around, but can he get 270 electoral votes and withstand the withering attacks by his own party and the evil ones? If anyone out there in FreeRepublic land can give me additional insight on this topic please feel free to do so. Only the future of our Republic and the SCOTUS hangs in the balance!
We have to have an announced candidate or “getting our act together” is play acting without a point.
Ted Cruz is my man. I’ll not vote for any of the others. I’m not wondering whether SP will run; she won’t. It is Ted or Nothing. I won’t be voting for any RINOs this time. I’m done with that.
We seriously don’t need another 2012 where we dump candidates because of one thing they said 14 years ago that wasn’t 1000000% conservative or where we have people pushing for candidates with no charisma, but because they can recite a Bible verse verbatim or because their kids have really nice teeth, that somehow makes them more viable.
however every time unity is close either some nutcase decides to run for the same office or a paid decoy is pushed into the election. The useful idiots break ranks and run to these dead enders.
What examples would fit that rather strange description?
Yeah, you’re right! I left off Romney and Rand Paul.
Romney - a RINO perhaps. . a pretty good campaigher in ‘12, refused to take the Kenyan to task for Benghazi when he had the chance. I would find it difficult to pull the lever for him again.
Rand Paul. somewhat problematic. Light resume. vague on border protection, too many of his dad’s wacko libertarian views. Probably go easy on pot smoking. I would vote for him, however.
Right On! Pick a person now before the Democrat-Progressives do it for us. They will saddle us with a Bush or Mittens—anyone their person can defeat. I will vote for ANYONE with a “R” behind the name!!!! I will never vote for a “D” again!
I will stay home no more—Look what it got us? We must rally behind someone and support him! I don’t care if they are a Mormon, Woman, Black, White or Brown—as long as they support 50% of the Republican ideals. I could even vote for Trump! (heck , he knows business)-— The personal politics of destruction employed by the Progs have wrecked the nation and put us all in harms way. No more “experiments” with exotic people, women, etc... I want an old dude with a few brains in his head. No more taking an issue (Mittens was bad to his dog—or Sarah Palin hunts cute little animals and eats them)
I would really like someone with executive experience, preferably a governor.
Trump: Moneyman, would pull rats and Indies over to support his economic growth plans. Captures the NE. Supports Cruz heavily.
VP: Cruz, making him also president of the Senate.
Speaker of the House: Trey Gowdy. Will drain the DC swamp in a year.
WH Spokesman: Sarah Palin, for obvious reasons.
SecDef: Oliver North.
SecState: Louie Gohmert.
Chief of Staff: Judge Jeanine Pirro.
Feel free to add.
Rand Paul has the best shot at reaching outside the GOP base vote (which is just not enough to win by itself).
First you have to define conservative.
If you vote for a liberal republican, you ARE a liberal.
That’s way Governor Walker is my choice. Is he perfect, no. But he has been in the arena, and kicking Rat ass the whole time.
Pick the strongest conservative Republican governor. He won’t satisfy everybody but if we can get 60% conservative, I can vote for him.....or her.
Don’t even consider Christie!!
Hillary will not be the nominee.
Its the natural order of things and nothing will change it. No different from the idiots who decide everybody but their preferred candidate is secretly working for someone else.
Ya just can’t fix stupid.
Vague? He's all wrapped around Glenn Beck as we speak.
