New Straw Poll from WND - Please read and vote
Janet L Folger is conducting a straw poll. An excerpt:
Straw houses can be blown down. And so, I appeal to the grass roots â€“ the people who pound in the yard signs and get out the vote: If you don't want the "conservative" leaders compromising with a RINO the pundits say can win, here's your chance to be heard. Here's your chance to lead. E-mail me at F2Ainfo@f2a.org and VOTE. In the subject line, put your candidate in caps. Then, if you can, tell me WHY. I'll report the results in my column next week.
My entry follows:
He has been in congress 9 terms and I defy you to find one unprincipled vote. Ever. He is pro-life but small government - he will protect OUR borders, and leave Bosnian borders to Bosnians or whomever is nearby who can help.
He is even tough on terror, but not the use of terror as an excuse to spend money on well lobbied security and war companies and the nonsense the TSA does (weren't those six Imams searched? Why did the passengers feel nervous?).
The other four? Maybe, but ask yourself if you are simply trying to game the system yourself, corruption in your favor. How much compromise?
There have been many 454-1 votes, and the one who stands alone against nonsense and unconstitutional policies is Ron Paul.
And if he hasn't compromised once over this long period, he will do EXACTLY WHAT HE SAYS and what he as done in the white house. Can you say that about anyone else?
If possible, he is more principled than Ronald Reagan.
But do you want real and true principle? That which George Washington and Thomas Jefferson and the other founders had when they feared big government?
Or do you want corruption favorable to your side and hope it won't turn on you as every other Republican victory - from "Read my lips" Bush 41, to Gingrich's retreat on the government shutdown, to the current porkfest while ignoring abortion?
Or for feel-good facades that say Social Security is OK, huge deficits are too, and the hours delay waiting to be strip searched at the airport should make you feel safe, and the library's filter software any 7 year old can get around.
Choose this day. Principle or corruption or illusion.
There is only one candidate who has never compromised.
But principle is the hardest choice. It means the long trek through the desert from a pampered slavery in Egypt back to the promised land of freedom.
