You right on target about the Clinton’s.

The first time that I saw their picture on the capitol steps holding their daughter, in the Memphis Commerical Appeal red flags went up. I wasn’t disappointed.

Just hastens the realization that ballots no longer work and it’s time for bullets.

Keep your powder dry.

McCain is neither of the other two (WOT and National Defense) if he’s also pro-illegal immigration.

How do you think the nutjobs are actually going to get to us? Via landing craft?

They’re going to come across the, um, border if you want to call it that, and they are going to hit us.

Let’s face it folks, 50% of your compatriots rank at, or below the 50th percentile of the intelligence quotient. That’s why (within the popular culture) we’re referred to as a Democracy, (you know-where the majority rules)! Unless these people are dis-enfranchised (which ain’t gonna happen), you’ll be faced with this conundrum in perpetuity. I’m considering registering as a Republican, just so I can draw a Republicant ballot for the California primary and vote for Duncan Hunter! Will Hillary be as hysterical when POTUS?

I’m voting for McCain. He’s strong on the WOT, and that’s the only thing that matters this election.

Mccain-FeinGold can be used to shut down talk radio or blogs and web sites like Freerepublic too.

Mcain is not a socialist? Then what do you call someone who wants to empower goveernment to censor political speech including the internet?

So do conservatives or socialists want to end free speech and censor the internet and spend 10 years plotting with Soros groups to do it?

Bradley Smith says that the freewheeling days of political blogging and online punditry are over. In just a few months, he warns, bloggers and news organizations could risk the wrath of the federal government if they improperly link to a campaign's Web site. Even forwarding a political candidate's press release to a mailing list, depending on the details, could be punished by fines.

Smith should know. He's one of the six commissioners at the Federal Election Commission, which is beginning the perilous process of extending a controversial 2002 campaign finance law to the Internet

Also McCain voted against the Bush Tax cuts which also proves he is a socialist. also McCain is for giving Amnesty to 30 million illegals which is cultural Marxism and would give us millions more Democrat voters.

I know there are hundreds of other examples but I don't have time to look them up.

The 1994 Republican congress did a lot of conservative things including welfare reform , the Bush tax cuts, grid locking Clinton , didn't raise taxes, and not allowing the Clintons to nationalize the healthcare industry.

If the party is STUPID enough to put up anyone but Thompson, then they deserve Clinton, Obama, or worse.

One of these days, the Democrats, Republicans, and Appropriators in DC are going to have to start acting like adults and less like geriatric adolescents. Same with the voters.

Time to stick to your principals, when your party abandons theirs.

I really wonder if these threads are just an attempt to see how low we'd go, how bad a candidate conservatives would settle for.

So, for the record, If I don't see a Conservative on the ballot, I'll write one in.

McCain isn't on my Conservative list.

I'd vote for him.

I'd rather get some of what I want than all of what they want.

Voting third party or staying home just hands them the election. I can't let that happen.

America will survive Clinton or Obama

This is sheer lunacy.

You want your doctor chosen for you by the Federal Government?
You want to see the Electoral College abolished?
You want to see the military cut back beyond 1990's levels?
You want to see Jamie Gorelick appointed to The Supreme Court?
You want to see entitlement spending explode?
You want to see all hope of overturning Roe vs. Wade evaporate?
You want to lose the War In Iraq?
You want to see The War On Terror revert to a law enforcement matter?

And you think America will survive these things?

NO CONSERVATIVE THINKS AMERICA WOULD BE BETTER OFF WITH A WHITE HOUSE PUSHING A DEMOCRAT AGENDA. PERIOD!

He didn’t do anything unethical in the Keating thing. The report at the time, I think it was the Senate ethics committee, declared he had not done anything unethical.

I’d probably end up flipping a coin between not bothering to drive to the polls or Kevorkian vote (the worse the better) and get it over with quickly instead of slowly and painfully.

I’ll go and vote for the Republicans running for the Senate and House seats.

But I won’t vote for McCain or Huckabee. I’ll write in Duncan Hunter’s name.

That's politics. You give up some of what you want and get some of what you want so that you don't end up with none of what you want. I visualize it as cutting off my foot to save my life. Call me "Mr. Cheerful" this morning.

Nope. I'd call you "Mr. Wise Guy"!

You said it right.

To all those of you who jabber about "holding your nose".

The Republican Party doesn't give a $#!+ what you do with your nose. All they care about is what you do with your ballot.

If you (continue to) cast your ballot for a lightweight socialist, they'll know that they can continue to serve up lightweight socialist candidates, without consequence.

That's nice, if you're a lightweight socialist.

If you're conservative, or libertarian, or federalist ... it's stupid.

Of course I'd vote for McCain. I wouldn't be happy about it, but I'd do it.

The Senate and House are going to stay Democrat for this cycle. Imagine the damage that could be done in only two years of Dem rule. For starters, the aging liberals on the Supreme Court will run for the exits and they'd be replaced with young, pro-abortion liberals.

If the candidate isn’t Thompson, Hunter, or Paul, I’m voting 3rd party.<

Good for you - and if voters like you let the Socialists in = after they turn Iraq, Afghanistan and the world back to the islamofacists - you can look in the mirror every day and see someone who has/and will continue to have, the blood of, first, many of our troops, and then, increasingly around the world, blood of tens of thousands of civilians, on your hands.

yep, let 'em in, the barbarians are counting on you -
