Well, the presidential primary sweepstakes is heating up already. Many people have written Sarah Palin off. Heck, many thought she never had a chance anyway and they're gloating about it. And, unfortunately, "conservative" Governor Sanford blew his chances. Keep it zipped up fellas.
And the media, as usual, is panting hard for the most liberal Republican they can find in the primary race. Namely, Governor Slick Willard Romney.
Hey, Romney's ok. IF you're one of those liberal/moderate RINO types that loves big government forcing big government "solutions" for health care, etc, down your throat. AND if you can morally ignore his liberal record in Massachusetts that left the state saddled with a bankrupting state run health care system, taxpayer funded abortions, gay marriage, gun control, sanctuary cities, intrusion and government coercion into private matters, etc, etc, etc, AND you've convinced yourself that it wasn't Slick's fault. The liberals made him do it, etc. They don't call him Kennedy's best friend for nothing, y'know.
But I'm a conservative. That means I'm a social conservative, fiscal conservative, small government conservative, national defense conservative and traditional American heritage conservative. And I will support the conservative candidates who best represent my conservative principles and values. In the very least, my conservative candidate will have a strong pro-Life and Liberty record. And he will have an unblemished fiscally conservative, small government, pro-national security, and pro-national defense record!
Will I sit out the race if a socially liberal RINO is nominated? You betcha. I will not participate in the further destruction of the Republican Party. If the Republican Party continues moving left, it will have left me.
That automatically rules out Romney, Rudy, Paul and any other whacked out fools or RINOs. And thank God the old warhorse McCain is too old and feeble to run again. Please, Arizona, put the old guy out to pasture before he does any more damage to party and country.
Would I support Sarah Palin if she decides to run? You betcha! And I would enthusiastically welcome and support Governor Barbour, Senator Sessions, Congressman Pence or Duncan Hunter, et al. Don't know enough about Jindal to say but I'm willing to listen.
And I'm sure there are other conservatives we should consider. Would like for FReepers to post their favorite presidential hopefuls here and list their conservative credentials for our consideration.
RINOs or social liberals need not apply. Enough with the Swartzeneggers, Giulianis, Romneys, McCains, et al. They NEVER work out for us!!
P.S. Government funded or forced health care is NOT a constitutional right! It's TYRANNY!!
DONT TREAD ON ME!!
But...but...but Saint Mitt is near godlike in stature and power. LOL
What a great piece. You summerized the thoughts and feelings of so many freepers in a short space.
Romney is a Socialist bastard.
Palin/Sessions for me.
I hope Sarah Palin is the beginning of a true powerful CONSERVATIVE third Party. Keep talking and as usual thanks for all you have done here at Free Republic.
Stickin’ with Palin.
You cannot resist the power of his hair. LOL
And we've got to somehow keep the left from getting them on the ticket like they did McCain.
Hunter/DeMint 2012. Accept no substitutes.
Ted Nugent and Charlie Daniels works for me.
Haley Barbour would be a great choice. i wish he’d find his voice now and start speaking out against the destruction that obama is bringing to this country before the calamity is obvious to everyone. Because by then the liberal media will find a way to blame the GOP and Bush. We need strong voices fighting back NOW.
Then the fun begins. With the help of the real conservatives on this site and other likeminded sites, the revolution has just begun.
Sarah Palin has better hair.
I agree Jim. I’m not voting the lesser of two evils any more.
I think Sarah is going for the Senate in ‘10.
Yep. The media is going to love Mitt, just like they LOVED McCain....right up until he got the nomination and they eviscerated him in front of our eyes.
