I have been giving this Presidential race a bunch of thought lately. As I am certain that you have as well.
I think that we are all in agreement that Barry Obama has been a failure of Biblical proportions who normal people knew he would be. He simply has to go and soon. I have four hundred three (403) reasons why.
So, who are the choices as of today? Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, and Ron Paul. Not the ideal lineup, but ALL are infinitely better than Barry Obama.
Here's the rundown.
Mitt Romney is at best a Moderate. He is certainly NOT a Conservative by any stretch of the imagination and the ONLY redeeming quality that he has was his employment at Bain Capital. (The link leads to the opposition research performed by The McCainiac during the last primary.) Bain is it.
Mitt is a no-go. Under no circumstances will I ever pull a lever for Mitt Romney unless it is to give him control of my investment capital of which I have ZERO.
Newt offers a better history of accomplishments in government, but I have a minor problem with Newt. You see, any man that cheats on his spouse is a horrible person. That is another reason I cannot stand Barry Obama, too. Barry's gay fling with Reggie Love (and possibly Larry Sinclair), while he was married, was a deal breaker not withstanding his racist Democrat affiliation. Newt is no different in my opinion.
The way I think on this is simple. You certainly have friends that tell you at the end of their relationship, "BUT! I never cheated!!" Please understand, fidelity in a relationship is the very MINIMUM you can achieve, NOT the maximum. To utter the "I didn't cheat" thingy does not impress me at all. Newt was incapable of providing the minimum daily requirements to (allegedly) the most important person in his life. Why would anyone expect him to provide anything that he promises to anyone ever again?
So, Newt is a no-go. Well, unless for some reason I need to get creeped out by some weird talking history professor and chances of that happening are slim to none.
I like Rick Santorum's value structure. He's a good guy. He is a straight-laced guy. He's a trustworthy, quality individual. The media will destroy him just like they are trying with Timbow.
No chance with Santorum. Unless G_d intervenes.
You know for a fact that he is solid on economic issues, but you are shitting the bed over his isolationist ideology and weird-ass foreign policy notions.
Don't sweat it, player.
This election is about two things, getting non-deadbeats back to work and cutting government spending. Ron Paul would certainly back the cutting (or abolishing entirely) of minimum wage. He would back cutting income taxes. He would screech crazily about ending the Fed, the Departments of Energy, Education, Interior, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Transportation, and Homeland Security. Holy shit, he might even get one or two of them gone if he goes nutsoid enough.
Those will be good things. And hopefully, someone will convince him to concentrate on those long enough that he wouldn't do any permanent damage to the military or destroy entirely our interests overseas.
I am totally in on the Revolution and I am now officially a Paul-Bot.
Fire away. But, Barry has to go. NOW.
