There is only 1 conservative left in the race - Ron PaulSubmitted by gschor on Wed, 01/23/2008 - 15:14
There are now 5 Republicans in the race, but there is only one conservative - Ron Paul.
John McCain is no conservative. Matthew A. Roberts of the National Ledger writes, "He is a leftist in disguise, using his popularity and charisma to masque his liberal leanings. In reality, McCain resides as far to the Left as John Kerry. Anyone who thinks otherwise deludes himself. McCain sides with the American Left on most key issues. The McCain-Feingold Campaign Reform Act is perhaps one of the more left-wing acts of Congress in the past twenty years. McCain's liberal tendencies show in the immigration debate. McCain has proven to be farther Left on the immigration issue than even many Liberals. At the very basis of most conservative thought is the idea of law and order, which are essential for the continuity of society. Bypassing tradition and sanity, and slapping in the face those who have come here legally, McCain has sought to sweep aside law and order to engage in the unbecoming business of pandering to ethnicities. (Isn't this the dominion of Democrats?) McCain's radical views on immigration threaten numerous components of the wellbeing of the United States and, more generally, Western Civilization: national security, standards of living, and cultural homogeneity, to name a few. McCain has courted the cheap-labor lobby for some fast cash for 2008 and now attempts to convert the U.S. into a third-world country." - edited
Giuliani? He is a cross-dressing, pro-abortion, anti-Second Amendment, adulterous, incestuous (he married his cousin - then had the marriage annulled) authoritarian who's liberal record speaks for itself. When his time came to serve in the military, Rudy Giuliani deferred. Wasn't he a great leader on 9/11? Not according to Jim Riches, a deputy chief in the New York Fire Department, , "He didn't prepare us before, during, or after. The [only] decision he made was, which direction he was going to run. And he ran north, and that's all he did."
Mitt Romney? He pretends to be pro-life now, but in 2002 he stated, "The choice to have an abortion is a deeply personal one. Women should be free to choose based on their own beliefs, not the government's." He supported legalization of the "morning-after" abortion pill, RU-486. Romney promoted homosexual education in Massachusetts schools through the "Governor's Commission on Gay and Lesbian Youth," funding this bureaucracy of social engineering instead of eliminating it. His healthcare plan mandates that all people buy health insurance or face stiff fines and is almost virtually identical to the plan being pushed forward by Hillary Clinton.
Mike Huckabee? To quote conservative firebrand Phyllis Schlafly, "He [Huckabee] destroyed the conservative movement in Arkansas, and left the Republican Party a shambles." He is supported financially by longtime Clinton allies Tyson Foods and Stephens Inc. It's no wonder that Tyson supports him. He looked the other way as they employed one of the largest armies of illegal immigrant workers on American soil. He supports providing illegal immigrants with healthcare, education, and even college scholarships. According to The Associated Press: “[Huckabee’s] career has also been colored by 14 ethics complaints and a volley of questions about his integrity, ranging from his management of campaign cash to his use of a nonprofit organization to subsidize his income to his destruction of state computer files on his way out of the governor’s office.” And what was Governor Huckabee’s response to these ethics allegations? Rather than cooperating with investigators, Huckabee sued the state ethics commission twice and attempted to shut the ethics process down.
Cal Thomas sets the record straight on Ron Paul: "Mike Huckabee... sounds like a big government Republican. The only one behaving like a real Republican is Ron Paul, who actually wants to cut spending and get government out of our lives. He won't win the nomination because too many Republican are into handouts and redistribution, just like Democrats. It's a sad political season if you are a conservative... Maybe a miracle will happen and Republicans will start behaving like Republicans again."
If Ron Paul doesn't win the primary election, the liberals have already won the presidency in 2008.
