I need all of you to not only read this post and the follow-on, but I need you to please pass this great open letter to all your conservative friends. This is from my brother in Christ JB Williams. Thanks!
My Fellow Conservatives,
The conservative movement in American politics has never been more fractured by in-fighting than it is today and we must find a way to fix it, fast.
In the good ole days, all of my hate mail came from sniveling liberals angry with my ultra-conservative message about the founding principles and values that made America the greatest nation in earth’s history.
But today, most of my hate mail comes from self-styled conservatives and angry Republicans who can’t seem to agree on what it means to be Republican, much less conservative.
I believe that we are headed for a disastrous loss this November and that such a loss can forever change the direction of this nation in an irreversible leap into pure Democratic Socialism that will soon after, be the ruin of my beloved country.
If I’m right, it will be “conservatives” who cause it, not liberals.
As a result of the “compassionate” policies of too many Republicans over the last ten years or so, social spending at a pace that should make even a drunken Kennedy blush, appeasing leftist notions from open borders to immoral social behaviors, and failing to finish the battles we accept in a decisive manner, Republican voters have lost focus and faith in their own party or their ability to affect positive change via the election process.
While there is valid cause for concern in all of these areas, the answer is NOT to shrink from the challenges, but to rise to these occasions.
Working directly with conservative congressional candidates to take back conservative control of at least the senate is a MUST DO no matter who becomes the next President. But today, I want to address the importance of WHO becomes the next President.
As you all know, John McCain is almost the LAST Republican I expected to be the RNC nominee and just about the LAST individual I thought I would ever vote for in November. We all know how he became the nominee. We lost control of our nominating process long ago and in the future, we must work to regain control here too.
But this November, each of us will find ourselves with the same set of limited options.
1) Vote AGAINST Clinton-Obama by voting for the only candidate left who can defeat Clinton-Obama
2) Sit it out and let Clinton-Obama win unopposed
3) Cast a 3rd party protest vote and let Clinton-Obama win by default
Only one of these options keeps Hillary Clinton or Barrack Hussein Obama out of the Oval Office for the next four years.
Now, some “conservatives” are claiming that either there is no identifiable difference between McCain and the other two candidates, or in some cases, that McCain is even WORSE than either Clinton or Obama for the future of America. There is NO factual basis for either claim and to keep my fellow conservatives from buying into either of these anger driven lies, I have researched and prepared the following diagram of official positions on the top twenty issues facing our nation today. Read my closing comments after reviewing the chart on the candidates official positions.
These positions are NOT based upon the current campaign rhetoric. All three candidates are US Senators and as such, they all have a clear record of official votes and formal position statements on all of the top twenty issues. This chart of official positions is based upon their votes and their official position statements as US Senators. In some cases, their official positions are different from their current rhetorical campaign positions aimed at buying votes. It is their OFFICIAL past track record on the issues that tells us what they really believe in and stand for.
If you doubt the facts presented in this chart, I challenge you to research it all for yourselves at On The Issues or the congresional records themselves.
Check back in tomorrow for the conclusion of the great conservative manifesto.
