Question for conservatives who vote for Republican candidates every few years because the Republicans are the "lesser of two evils." P>
How is your voting strategy working out?
Since "conservative" Republicans have taken over the House of Representatives 11 years ago, the expansion of government has continued at every level. Nothing has been done to stop the holocaust of abortion. Gay marriage under the guise of "civil unions" is becoming a norm in our society. Our government continues in its Wilsonian tradition of globe-trotting and nation-building with the precious blood of American soldiers fertilizing the subjected nations, making them "safe for democracy."
Nothing has been done to deter the invasion of over 10 million illegal immigrants across our southern border. Taxation as a percentage of income is at record levels. Federal and state government debts are at record levels. The middle class of the American citizenry have the boot of the government planted squarely on their necks and continue to shoulder much of the monetary burden that keeps our corrupt governments breathing.
Conservative voters, I ask you again...How is your voting strategy working out? Have the "lesser" of evils advanced your agenda? (I really don't believe that this "evil" is lesser at all...but is merely a different flavor of evil. Much like choosing between strawberry or chocolate ice cream...the underlying substance is the same with the only difference being the flavor.)
I'm not asking if they have promised to advance your agenda (because I know their rhetoric).
I'm asking, "What has the Republican Party done for you and your cause?"
Words without actions are MEANINGLESS.
To use a quote from one of my all-time favorite superheroes in one of my all-time favorite movies (Batman Begins), "It's not what you are underneath that matters, but what you do that defines you."
In politics, it's not what you SAY that matters...but what you will DO once elected to office...
Until there is a paradigm shift in the thinking of conservatives, our nation will continue slouching toward certain destruction...Until there is a revolution in the minds and thought processes of dyed-in-the-wool conservatives who regularly vote Republican, there will be no legitimate change in our nation's course...Until the conservatives arise from their mental dormancy and slumber, our nation will continue to creep toward certain judgment.
Conservative brothers and sisters...OPEN YOUR EYES!
Constituion Party candidates currently holding office include...
I tried a protest vote one year.... and Bill Clinton got elected!
I'm with you 100 percent.
Can't wait to see the hordes show up here telling everyone how wrong it is to vote anything buy republican though.
Vote Constitution Party in 2006 and throw the election to the Democrats! ... Yea, that's sounds like a workable plan!
I would rather see Roberts and Alitos being appointed then a bunch of Ruth Ginsburg clones. Oh, and at least there were tax cuts and some rational foreign policy. I don't want some UN butt kissing president.
Well, for one, they have taken the fight to the murdering scum in the Middle East. More than the Dems or some Libertarian fringe party would have done.
Vote Constitution in 2006!! We are aiming to get 1% this time around!! Woohooo!!!
/(Do I really need a sarcasm tag?) sarcasm
Besides, I am frankly wary of rhetoric that utilizes phrases like "brothers and sisters"...
It stinks like something else.
You're right, advocating strict adherence to the Constitution and reigning in out of control government expansion is so passe. /sarc
Look, Democrats, Republicans, what difference does it really make? I'm through voting Republican just because they're not as bad as the Dems. In many ways they are, in some ways they are even worse.
Remember the Contract With America? How much of that was put into law? Which Party is leading the way in spending? I'm willing to wait and see how these two new judicial seats work out on the Supreme Court; but I'm not optimistic.
It may be that Anthony Kennedy will become the new Sandy O'Connor, voting the liberal party line in every five to four decision.
What has changed since 1994?
Seems to me the Jack Kennedy democrats were more conservative than George Bush Republicans.
Republican obviously does not mean conservative any longer.
Yup. Made that mistake as well. Not going to happen again.
Look, if some people want Italian governments, let them go to Italy.
So did I! Doesn't it suck when we have so few choices?
That last paragraph is strong.
Besides, I am frankly wary of rhetoric that utilizes phrases like "brothers and sisters"... It stinks like something else.
And illegal immigration, a growing welfare state, murder of the unborn, "campaign finance reform", etc., don't?
(we're not quite as bad as the other guys)
