Yes, another disappointing pundit letter lamenting the Republican choice probably written by a guy who laughed & referred to Ron Paul in sentences that included words like “kook, Fringe & wacko” and instead wasted their votes 4 to 1 on an unnamed Republican “poser” with a mile wide long history of non immigration enforcement and or Socialism or no position on anything over Ron Paul.
Ron Paul a guy who’s spent his life defending the Constitution was rejected & shunned by the establishment as a kook.
What’s so scary about a Constitutional government?p>What do “you people” want anyway? br> — Smitty br> West Hills, California /p> p> Personally, I will lose not a wink of sleep over the coming demise of the Republican Party in November. A party whose only recent contribution, if it can be called that, is incoherent nonsense called compassionate conservatism, does not deserve to be elected. Liberals have their own party, so they don’t need the Republican Party as it stands, and conservatives don’t need it either. Defeat is always a chance to get rid of failed policies and failed leaders and bring it new ones. Conservatives should stop wasting time, tears and misplaced hopes on leaders whose only manoeuvres are the sell-out and the retreat and rebuild their party on real convictions that appeal to ordinary voters - remember the Reagan Democrats of the 1980s? They also need to be far more articulate and competent than George W Bush at his best - remember when the Republican President was called The Great Communicator? How quickly we forget. If conservatives can start remembering the things that worked so well and forget about the things that don’t then they have a chance to win back all the Reagan Democrats they won over in the 1980s and then lost, and that is a sure path to success. br> — Christopher Holland br> Canberra, Australia /p>
I am a Vietnam Veteran and a conservative and I will NOT vote for John McCain under any circumstances. My reasons are as follows:
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?
