No matter what, we will have a ton of candidates this election which is great. Four conservatives at least (Pence, Palin, Cain, Bachmann) and those are the only ones I can think of off hand. This is going to be a most exciting primary and I can’t wait for the debates. They are going to be something to watch.
The debates will need to be 4 hours long just so all 25 candidates can get one question.
The more the better - at least at the start. We need more than just 2008’s retreads (Huckabee, Romney, even Palin). Time to bring in some new blood into the GOP leadership caste.
I still don't understand how people on a supposedly conservative site can be so ignorant of politics.
No, a large number of conservatives will NOT be great. It will split the conservative base vote and allow the establishment RINO to win with a plurality.
They do this to us every time. The establishment knows how to get it's candidate, and they know something that many of us apparently can't comprehend..the one with the most votes wins.
You can win with 30% if you can get the conservatives to split between several candidates, thus making their votes inconsequential.
Look at this parade of RINO's...and ask yourself how come we are always faced with supporting these guys in a so called conservative party? People blame the RNC for sticking us with these moderates, but it is our votes that could stop them.
Nixon, Ford, Bush, Dole, Bush, McCain, Romney?
The establishment is playing Chess while we are trying to figure out if we want to be black or red in a game of checkers. We need to rally behind a SINGLE conservative en masse to get a conservative candidate.
I've said this before, and it is becoming more clear every day...a vote for anyone other than Governor Palin is a defacto vote for Romney.
Absolutely. We can’t go wrong with so many conservatives in the race. I hope they all decide to run.
