Why I left the Republican Party. And why it’s turned into nothing more than a bunch of Statist Loving Socialists. Stop Calling Yourselves Conservatives!!!
But a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that the two possible Republican running mates with the highest favorable ratings among voters – Mike Huckabee and Joseph Lieberman — are not even on most of the short lists currently being discussed.
Let’s take on Former Gov. Mike Huckabee first. He’s funny, charming, and “speaks for the little guy”. On the other hand, he’s for more Government. He would love to see a National Ban on Cigarettes, he would love to see the complete Federal takeover of Education, He’s for more War (not very Christian) and of course he’s for protecting “Our friend and Alley” Israel.(He is part of the Amen Corner) Oh, and apparently he’s for the “Fair Tax”. For a definition of the “Fair Tax”, look up Oxy-Moron. Because there is nothing Fair about any Tax.
Now for Sen. Joe Lieberman. He’s for abortion. He’s for more taxes. He’s for more Government. He’s for just about everything So-Called Conservatives profess to be against. But, the Amen Corner seems to love him. Because!? He’s for protecting our “Friend and Alley” Israel. Sen. Lieberman and the Amen Corner seem to mistake Tel Aviv for the Capital of the United States.
This poll just goes to show how left-ward the Republican Party has gone. Or what I’ve said before , “The Continuing Intellectual Bankruptcy of the So-Called Conservative Movement.” (I really need to trade mark that phrase). When So-Called Conservatives are wanting to see, not just one (Sen. McAmnesty) but two Big Government Bureaucrats running the White House again, something is wrong.
Do Real Conservatives have a choice in this charade we call “The Presidential Election”? In my eyes, we have two choices. Bob Barr, and Chuck Baldwin. But then again, most of my comrades will either stay home, or hold their noses and vote for Sen. McAmnesty. Because “Party Loyalty” is more important than principle.
Again, for the sake of us who believe in Limited Government, Entangling Alliances to None, Low to No Taxes, and putting America, First, Last and Always…Please stop calling yourselves Conservatives.
