Conservative or Republican?

Conservative or Republican?

Evidently moving toward the 2012 election the distinction between Conservative and Republican will be at the forefront. Not to mention, Libertarian. These three political positions are going to be challenged. Now let me say first off that I consider myself a Conservative.

If you want to know some of my beliefs just click the about the author page up top.

I believe in preserving the CONSTITUTION of the United States, I don’t want it changed, I don’t want it to be “Progressed” I think it’s served us well and it should be a sacred document. Do not mess with it unless you get the consent of the people. (i.e Amendments)

A “Republican” is not necessarily a Conservative. Conservatives just align more with that party than the Democrat party. A Republican is more moderate in some areas and more rigid in others compared to a “Conservative” An example of such occurs when Republicans are in the majority of House, Senate or White House. Conservatives tend to be very critical of ANY elected officials that are not upholding Conservative values. Republicans tend to provide cover for their own party. Now I know that will piss some of you Republicans off, but it’s true. Just look back to 2000 thru 2006 to see my point.

Now, we can look to this election and see the distinction between Republicans and Conservatives. What is really funny is, one without the other will result in Democrat reign for eternity. We are entangled by our vision of our nation, we are together in MOST instances on most every issue that confronts us.

One of the things that sets us apart is: You won’t hear a Conservative say “Well we have to compromise our principles on this issue in order to get something later”… Conservatives at one point did that. (Reagan) Today’s conservatives are pretty much done with compromising our principles. We have had it.

It was possible to compromise with yesterdays Democrats, today’s Democrats are NOT the same. These Democrats today are EXTREMISTS compared to the JFK Democrats. Conservatives have moved just as far right as Democrats have moved left. Republicans have become the Democrats of old. So who is left on the right? US Conservatives.

Let me say this. Conservatives are not looking to “Expand the tent” We are looking to educate the population in our core beliefs and if you agree, welcome brother/sister. If not we’ll see you on the field of battle.

We are coming up on the election cycle for our nation. I would like to see us all push for the same candidate in the general election. But in order for that to happen the GOP must put fourth a VIABLE CONSERVATIVE Candidate. We can’t allow another 2008 ticket, and Conservatives will hold the key. Independents are moving away from Democrats in droves and will most likely vote against Obama in 2012. Conservative turnout is paramount to removing Obama.

We must remove “Duh Won”  however there is a cost greater than not removing him. That cost would be electing someone worse. Hard to believe that one worse would come from the right. But IMO it very well could.

One thing I don’t want to do is bash any potential candidate (YET) I think I’ll wait on bashing or supporting one. Most have not announced their candidacy anyway. And it’s kind of interesting to see the media attack dogs out in a pack jumping on any “Potential” Republican candidate.

Lets get this one right folks. Lets put fourth a candidate we can fully support rather than a candidate that requires us to vote AGAINST one.



I Challenge you to watch this: Reagan “a time for choosing”

I Challenge you to watch this: Reagan “a time for choosing”

If you change the words “Millions” to “Billions” -“Billion to Trillion” and the names of the players, this is a speech that could be given today.

The people of the United States elected Lyndon B Johnson instead of Barry Goldwater in 1964. Our nation was subjected to MANY socialistic policies under his presidency and we are still paying for them. We finally got it right when the grown ups went to the poll and elected Ronald Reagan as POTUS in 1981. We need to do it again, because the names have changed but the FAILED ideology of liberalism is alive and well.

If you have the time, listen to this speech. Listen carefully and you will see where we are now. We have an opportunity to fix the current leadership of our nation and just like they did back then we can FIX IT. We need a Reagan to show up to save our asses.

There is one man that could give a speech like that, and only one man that would inspire confidence in our nation. That man is Lt Col Allen West. The rest of the players on the Republicans “Will run” list are bit players at best.

Christmas Eve Address by a TRUE Leader.

Christmas Eve Address by a TRUE Leader.

I thought I’d share a bit of true leadership and true believable character. As opposed to the phony stealth muzzie celebrating Christmas in Hawaii…

This is how a leader speaks, from the heart. You can tell by his message that it was thought out, believed by the speaker and had the best hopes of men in the words. Just wait till  Obama delivers his “Non denominational winter seasonal” message….

Merry Christmas to all

A Reminder to the current crop of idiots in DC.

A Reminder to the current crop of idiots in DC.

This is what real leadership looks like:

The Man

These are a few words from a real leader of a great country:

* Man is not free unless government is limited.

* No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth!

* Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too strong.

* One picture is worth 1,000 denials.

* One way to make sure crime doesn’t pay would be to let the government run it.

* Peace is not absence of conflict, it is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means.

* Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed there are many rewards, if you disgrace yourself you can always write a book.

* Protecting the rights of even the least individual among us is basically the only excuse the government has for even existing.

* Some people wonder all their lives if they’ve made a difference. The Marines don’t have that problem.

* The problem is not that people are taxed too little, the problem is that government spends too much.

* The taxpayer – that’s someone who works for the federal government but doesn’t have to take the civil service examination.

* There are no easy answers’ but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right.

* Thomas Jefferson once said, ‘We should never judge a president by his age, only by his works.’ And ever since he told me that, I stopped worrying.

* To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last – but eat you he will.

* We are never defeated unless we give up on God.

* We have the duty to protect the life of an unborn child.

* We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

* Within the covers of the Bible are all the answers for all the problems men face.

* Without God, democracy will not and cannot long endure.

The current candidates that are trying to fill Ronald Reagan’s shoes, do not have what it takes to tie his shoes much less fill them.

While Ronald Reagan did not do everything right, he did WAY more right than wrong and his fingerprints have been on our country until now. I believe Ronald Reagan has been looking down crying about what has become of this nation.

I think George Bush started out a little bit like Ronald Reagan, but since then, he has been more like Gerald Ford or Nixon (Without the scandals) I believe if our leadership follows a few of those statements Reagan made without compromise, WE as Americans will be fine. The last two quotes, and the first three are a good base to build a strong leadership style.

However; During this election cycle the closest I have came to saying “NOW That’s a Leader” is when Sarah Palin stepped up to the podium at the RNC and spoke about REAL CHANGE. I believe Sarah Palin has potential to be a GREAT Leader, and I HOPE she has an opportunity to demonstrate her abilities.

The problem we face now is, WE needed a Ronald Reagan in 2008, WE got a choice between Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton. The choice is the problem, the difference between the two are not clear. The difference between Reagan and Carter was HUGE, the difference between Gore and Bush was HUGE… the difference between Barack HUSSEIN Obama and John McCain is minimal.

The only reason I have hope at all for the future of our country is Sarah Palin. You want to see how good Sarah Palin would be for our nation? ALL you have to do is look at the folks attacking her. That speaks volumes to me.

Jackass Liberals
