I am a Protestant, evangelical, Christian conservative who has in the past protested abortion, supported pro-life pregnancy counseling centers, and remain personally opposed to dumbing marriage downwards. Having said that, I plan to vote for Rudy Giuliani, simply because he is the best leader who is a candidate in this election. He proved himself under fire on 9/11 and during the weeks and months following.
Since Ronald Reagan assumed office, we’ve had “conservatives” in power except for the Clinton years. We are still aborting as many unborn babies as we were 25 years ago. We have continued the slippery slide down the redefining marriage slope. Why? Because “the hearts and minds” of the population have not been changed.p>I respect Dr. Dobson. But I’d rather have Rudy in office, and be praying every day for his mind to change on some of these issues, than to torpedo the Republican Party and elect Hillary (with less than 50% of the popular vote). br> — Clint Wilkinson, D.M.D. /p> p> I think that our (religious right) wins in 2000 and 2004 showed us that our votes matter, but what it also did was make us sit up and take note of how things really work in elections. As a result I think that religious voters are a more politically savvy bunch than we were a few years ago. More savvy in a way to make us realize that if we stay home we could very well affect the election in a negative way and see Hillary become president of the United States! That scenario is just too scary to contemplate. While I do love Dr. Dobson, I think this time he will not have the majority of religious voters behind him. I, for one, will vote for the Republican candidate, whoever that is, because he can’t be worse for our country than a Democrat! br> — Deane Pradzinski br> Highland, California /p>
Mr. Antle well spells out the dividing line between fiscal conservatives and social ones. The former have no honor or core principles other than personal greed, which is partly why there’s such a divide between Dobson and his ilk and fiscal conservatives.
I’m Catholic and conservative strongly agree with Dobson that those such as I will not support a queer-loving, pro-abortion hedonist, not even at the near certainty of throwing the election to Hillary, whom I despise. The same may said of the Mormon, Romney, for whom I’ll not vote under any circumstance whatsoever.
Should either of them capture the GOP nomination, I, unaffiliated, will vote 3rd party or not vote in the general election.p>And don’t whimper to me about the foolishness of one willing to sacrifice an election for the sake of principle. If I were worried about that sort of thing, I wouldn’t have volunteered for a second twelve-month-long tour of fighting in Vietnam, instead of dodging the draft, as did both Giuliani and Romney. Or hiding out in a Nat’l Guard unit of a type nearly certain not to be sent to the war zone, as did Geo. W.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
