We are not members of the Republican Party – local, state, or national (although we have been, in the past). Nor do we financially support the various national Republican organizations. We decided long ago to support only individual candidates, since the national organizations have a disappointing habit of supporting liberal candidates.
In 2008, we cast our ballot for Sarah Palin, despite the fact that John McCain was the Presidential candidate. Since then, we have consistently said we would never again vote for a liberal GOP candidate like McCain.
But the longer we watch the Marxist reign of Barack Hussein Obama, the more we realize that the 2012 Presidential election may be unique. We are beginning to believe that the next national election will decide whether or not the United States of America remains a constitutional, representative Republic.
We do not want our America to melt into the murky darkness, as so many declining nation-states have done, and are doing. We’d prefer to see elected officials who are citizen-servants, rather than elitist political-class rulers. We’d rather see a limited Federal government, as our Founders envisioned – and thought they codified. We’d like to see many Federal departments, offices, agencies and programs curtailed or abolished. We’d rejoice over a balanced Federal budget, reduced national debt, and relaxed government regulation. Obama and his minions hold the polar opposite view.
During a rigorous Republican Presidential primary campaign, we supported Constitutional conservatives. We politely and respectfully pointed out the policy deficiencies of liberal Republicans (sometimes referred to as “RINOs” – Republican In Name Only). And we will always deride the progressive, anti-American policies of the Obama Regime and other domestic enemies.
We fully realize that Mitt Romney is not a “severe conservative,” or anything close to that laughable self-description. Mitt Romney was not our first choice. Our our second. Or third.
But in November 2012, we will vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, because we are convinced that this nation cannot survive a second Obama term, and no other non-Obama candidate has a chance of defeating him.
