Uniting the Conservative Movement

And Then There Were Two…and Ron Paul

Posted by Joshua Price on February 7, 2008

With the exit of Mitt Romney the GOP presidential field is left without even a quasi conservative candidate. So what are we left with?

We are left with the conservative wannabe John McCain. McCain is a liberal. I don’t care the American Conservative Union rates him as he is a liberal. He is pro-amnesty, against English only legislation, against tax cuts, and he’s been in bed the most liberal of the Democrats (i.e. Ted Kennedy and Russ Feingold).

We are also left with Mike Hucabee. Hucabee is some policy positions to offer such as his support for the Fair Tax, but he too is not a conservative. His fiscal and immigration policies as governor of Arkansas rival any good liberal’s.

So what does this mean for the Republican Party? It means that it’s one quick free-fall. The Republican first, conservative second crowd believes that they can win without the conservative vote. They’re wrong. They were wrong in the 2006 midterms and they will be wrong in the 2008 general election.

Have fun with McCain and enjoy getting a butt-kicking worse than the midterms.

My final message to the Republican Party is this: you need conservatives far more than we need you!

    I would imagine there are some folks looking at Paul and wondering….. “hmmm….” maybe I should give this guy another look.

  2. Maybe you’re right. I’ve said many times that the “purist” conservative in this race is Ron Paul even though he was not my choice. Mine was Duncan Hunter but he was weeded out before I got a chance to vote for him here in Georgia on Tuesday.

    It will be interesting to see the new vote breakdowns in the coming weeks between Hucabee, McCain and Paul.

    Welcome to the blog, by the way.

    Thank you. Nice to participate. Check out the CPAC speeches on C Span. Very good indicator of what we are left with.

  4. Oh I have checked them out, trust me. I plan on having something up tomorrow. It mostly be about McCain’s attempt at posing as a conservative.

    What’s going to be interesting is to watch the so-called conservative talkers, save Michael Savage, jump on the McCain bandwagon within three months. I mean, after all, it’s time time to be a good Republican, not a conservative.
