This tells you these elected politicians don’t want to solve anything.
Senator Tom Davis - The Islamic Caliphate’s new friend
Good on him! He said:
[Romney] supported interventionist policies in lending, TARP and ethanol subsidies, and he seems to support currency manipulation instead of sound money. Do we really know what we would get with a President Romney?.
Now, I support Newt. But, at least, Sen. Davis had the guts to stand up to the GOP Estblishment and support the Tea Party principles— as opposed to Haley, Demint, Limbaugh, Coulter. et. al-—
I commend him for making the principled argument-
No kidding! Sounds like he may need to be replaced. I wonder if Mr. Davis agrees with Ron Paul’s stances on immigration
Ron Paul has his faults...but do you actually believe any of the other candidates will make any significant reduction in government?
Congress has the power to declare war, so that part is covered, should Ron Paul somehow get elected. More positives than negatives, in my opinion.
After all, what happens to our defense capability when we can no longer make interest payments on our debt?
Are you from SC? I’m not so sure that you are right.
At this point, however, I think that an RP win in SC is the best thing that could happen, though RP isn’t my candidate. Even with a win there RP would never be the nominee or President, but nothing would say “screw you” to the R-Establishment and their candidate Mittens than voters saying we detest Romney so much that we’ll support RP over him. Moreover, it would shake the race up enough that Mittens’ “inevitability” balloon would be popped and the conservatives in the race would be back on center stage.
The fantasy of conservative voters being able to think strategically and tactically aside, the R lemmings in SC will almost certainly give Mittens another win, and the R-Establishment will have succeeded again in giving us their candidate.
I don’t see anyone stopping Mittens at this point. Perry hasn’t recovered from shooting himself in the foot early (although his policy papers have been very good); Bachmann is getting no traction; Santorum is a little better than GWB, but only a little; Newt is weasel - who knows whether the good Newt or the bad Newt would occupy the Whitehouse or how many times they would trade places.
I don’t see a path forward for conservatives absent something unexpected and dramatic happening. Perhaps someone else does.
Is Davis related to the faux conservative Barbour?
