It is quite obvious that with our sinking poll numbers, if the race for the White House were held today, we would be saying hello to Mr. Obama as our 44th President of the United States of America, and to Mr. Biden as our Vice-President. While it may seem that all hope is lost, I would like to take the opportunity to personally thank Republicans for the mess we are in, more specifically Liberal Republicans such as John McCain. When we nominated or should I say they nominated Mr. McCain it would have been an understatement to say that I was quite upset. I believe my exact words were “McCain is the best Democrat the Republicans have ever nominated”. I hate to say I was correct. I made the case that when Republicans stray away from principles we loose every single time. Evidence of this can be found when Republicans nominated Ford and we lost. We then nominated George H.W. Bush (2nd time) and we lost. We nominated Dole and we lost. Now we have Nominated McCain, and we will probably loose in November.
To be perfectly honest I really don’t mind that much, because I believe very little will… change. I predicted the very same thing when democrats took control of both houses of Congress, and I was correct, nothing… changed. At this point as a conservative I feel like a voice in the desert, just last week when most of Congress, our Liberal President and BOTH Presidential Candidates were calling for this bailout bill, I was saying no.
No, not just to the bailout its self but to the fact that government should be taking any action at all, whether to help the homeowners who share responsibility or to the banks and companies who caused the problem. My solution was to help no one, not $.01 should go to anyone on wall-street or main-street. Now we have pilled even more debt onto our children’s future, and I don’t know if anyone noticed by the market has fell consistently ever since we passed the darn thing.
It was called a “rescue” for the economy; as far as I can tell the rescue boat went down with the sinking ship (and McCain must have been on board too!).
Oh well, so four years of President Obama, I am sure this will be fun. I guess it might be good in a way, perhaps this generation needs to see first hand that Socialism and big government never work. They say there is nothing like real life experience, so we better get started. I have often heard and repeat the saying that it took four years of Carter to get Reagan, so perhaps we (conservatives) will end up winners in the long run.
I am very glad that we got rid of Hilary during this process (for now), so that is one positive strike in Obama’s corner, perhaps he won’t be so bad. Either way us Conservatives will be back in four years!!! Count on it!
