No faith in modern democrats...
Although I have very little faith and trust in modern democrats, from healthcare to energy policy to national defense, there is one democrat that apparently speaks the truth and has my trust and respect: Connecticut Independent Joseph Lieberman.
I suffer from Clinton fatigue and the continual re-counting of all of Hillary's alleged highpoints of her co-presidency while ignoring the overwhelming presence of chaos and corruption in the Clinton Administration. The same old Clinton advisers, who mostly overlooked all of the Clinton transgressions, are trying desperately to regain political power and, should they succeed, I fear for the stability of our already politicized Institutions as well as for the nation's ability to defend itself in an increasingly hostile world -- especially when many democrats seem to side with our detractors rather than defend our nation. Harry Reid comes to mind. The thought of Hillary Clinton appointing two or more Supreme Court Justices is intolerable.
Obama cannot be trusted...
Call me a racist (or the epithet of your choice), but I believe the problem with Barack Obama is that he is an African-American. Not that he is Black, but a hyphenated American whose loyalties to his race may color his political views and potential actions. Barack appears to be farther to the left than Hillary Clinton, has a 20-year plus association with a hardcore minister who exploits the issue of race whenever possible, associates with a known domestic terrorist couple who revel in their previous acts of domestic terrorism and has a suspicious relationship with a corrupt "political" fixer. Obama appears to be openly deriding our nation rather than simply criticizing the current Administration. Again, I find that I might not be able to abide by Obama's appointments or his Supreme Court picks. And there is Michelle Obama who is beginning to look more and more like an outspoken Hillary-style first lady. Both privileged, far-left elitists with apparently a permanent chip on their shoulders. I definitely do not want another co-presidency!
"Even strong support from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid may not save the Homeland Security Committee chairmanship for Sen. Joseph Lieberman if he goes through with plans to address the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn."
"Reid opposes trying to kick Lieberman out of the Senate Democratic caucus (which would cost him his chairmanship) because he has endorsed Republican John McCain for president."
"But other Democratic senators complain Lieberman would go a step too far if he addresses the Republican convention."
"Elected as an independent in 2006, Lieberman now designates himself an 'Independent Democrat.'"
"A footnote: Lieberman recently approached one prominent supporter of Hillary Clinton with a suggestion that he consider supporting McCain if Barack Obama is nominated."
I truly believe, as I have said in the past, that Lieberman represents the "old-style" democrats whose actions and love of country transcended political considerations. These were the democrats who did not hate America or "blame America first." These were the democrats who instituted failed social programs, but not specifically for the political power it provided. Even the worst of the old-time democrats was more patriotic and trustworthy than this current crop of know-nothing ideologues.
So, perhaps there is something to be learned when the democrats contemplate turning their back on a fellow democrat; loudly proclaiming their support of the First Amendment while trying to silence Lieberman.
McCain is no Bush III...
It is ludicrous to think that the current democrat charge that John McCain represents a third Bush term is even valid. McCain is probably, at the very best, a weak moderate Republican and at the very worst, a weak liberal democrat. No matter how many times McCain invokes the name of Ronald Reagan, McCain is nowhere near Reagan in style, politics or ability.
However, like Lieberman, I do not, for one minute, doubt McCain's sincerity or love of his country. I have no doubt that McCain is capable of selecting a Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense that will not wilt before the onslaught of a hostile world. And I do not believe that McCain will, like the elitist far left, debate events endlessly while American interests and soldiers are at risk.
Bottom line: McCain may talk with dictators, but the conversation might not be as respectful or apologetic as either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama. I believe that he will take action rather than engage in a series of endless feints, punts and chokes.
What can YOU do?
Watch Hillary as she uses her Clintonian wiles to attempt to steal the nomination .
Watch Barack as he tries to spin his far left liberal candidacy into something attractive to the middle class worker/citizen who did not go to Harvard, Princeton or other Ivy League schools. Watch Michelle Obama morph into a potential Hillary-style co-presidency.
And check out the democrat attempts to paint McCain as the anti-Christ Bush surrogate.
Consider the endless liberal concentration on feelings as they ignore facts. And support the rights and efforts of "collective" over the rights and efforts over the "individual."
Try to find one democrat "social engineering" initiative that has worked out or wasn't wildly over budget.
Do not vote for any candidate or current politician who is willing to subvert the safety, security, sovereignty and economic strength of the United States or limit an individual's right of self-defense for their personal philosophy, power, prestige or profits.
