2008 primaries: Voting to be slaves or citizens
A Column by the Editor
posted January 2, 2008
COLUMN – 2008 is here and the presidential
candidates are spending money like it grows on lobbyists trees (which
for most it does) trying to convince voters they are “the” candidate
deserving of your vote in the primaries. I have never seen a bigger
bunch of liars, fakes, and selfish egomaniacs than I see in the
candidates running on both sides of the isle. Sometimes I think we
would get a better president if we opened a phone book and threw a dart
at the page to choose.
On the Democrat ticket the front-runners are trying to see who can sell
socialism in the grandest plan. Free everything – healthcare, welfare,
childcare, you name it. I have to remind myself they are running for
president of the United States and not France.
First there is Hillary Clinton, the most despised and polarizing figure
in politics. She touts her “experience” but the only experience she has
in leadership is demeaning Uniformed Service members relegated to
acting as busboys and slandering the young girls her husband, former
President Bill Clinton, couldn’t stop sleeping around with.
Of course, even though they were proven true she claims it was all a
“huge right-wing conspiracy”. Sorry, I just can’t get behind the
biggest liar that stood by the second biggest liar in politics.
Barrak Obama, ah, he is the only person closer to pure Marxism than
Hillary. He claims to want change, but in reality the only change he,
Hillary, and John Edwards wants is for you to become more dependant
upon them and the government they control in order to exist.
Elect me and let me hold the title to your healthcare, your energy
needs, your very existence. No thanks. Not a single candidate on the
Democrat ticket supports individual reliance.
It is not any better when you look at most of the Republicans.
John McCain, who votes more like his liberal counterparts on the
Democrat ticket, espouses he deserves to be in the White House because
… well, honestly I have no clue why he thinks he deserves it other than
he thinks he “deserves” it for acting like a Democrat.
Rudy Giuliani at least has experience in leading as Mayor of New York
during 9-11. However, he can’t escape his New York ties which carries
about as much weight in the South as a minnow basket carries water once
lifted out of the river. Rudy’s twists and turns from past positions
are only eclipsed by the number of Botox shots Hillary gets every day
to keep people from seeing what a dried up old hag she is.
Then there is Ron Paul. There is a candidate that I actually agree with
more than I disagree with, but he does not have the best interest of
the Untied States at heart and forgets that the country is made up of
50 free and sovereign states. He appears to be a coward when it comes
to taking the fight to the Islamic terrorists and wants to draw his
head into a shell like a turtle when he sees a problem.
If he loses the primaries I look for him to become a candidate on the
Libertarian ticket which will get him nowhere.
Mitt Romney has as many excuses as Carter’s has pills for his ever
changing positions. Nothing genuine there.
The only two real candidates are Mike Huckabee and Fred Thompson.
Huckabee at least has led a state as governor and is willing to support
disposing of the IRS by passing the Fair Tax. The only people that
oppose the Fair Tax are those who make money sucking up to politicians
to command greater control over the real taxpayer.
It is Huckabee’s stand on the Fair Tax that has driven him to be the
number one candidate on the Republican ticket, even though the press
refuses to admit it. Proving once again that the people are far better
informed than the liberal national media on what matters most.
Fred Thompson, now there is one thing that draws me to him… he says he
really does not know if he wants to be president. That is a plus in my
book. He understands State’s Rights, he has no reason to become
president because he is already set for life, and he does not owe
anyone any favors for being elected.
So as the South Carolina Primary draws near please keep in mind that
you have a choice; surrender freedom for false security (slavery) or
vote to protect State’s Rights and individual freedom.
The item I would most like to see a candidate get behind is the repeal
of the 17th Amendment, returning our US Senate to the formula designed
by the Founding Fathers to protect State’s Rights.
Whom should you vote for? That is up to you. Do you want to retain
freedom or surrender your life to your elected leader? The election of
2008 will determine if you want to be the slave of others or the master
of your own future.
Please choose wisely.
