Big Sigh

You may have noticed that the Fred! campaign button is gone.

Gone, too, is any chance the Republican nominee will be a conservative. Fred! and Duncan Hunter were the only ones, and now there are none.

Duncan Hunter just didn't have enough name recognition, which made this race Fred's to lose. And he did. Just like the KosKids found out, a strong Interwebtubiethingie presence does not mean a strong overall presence. You have to pound the pavement and get the word out in the actual world.

I haven't decided yet if I am going to write Fred! in, become a single-issue voter and go with Mike Huckabee because of his support of the Fair Tax, or if I am just going to vote Democrat.

Why Democrat? Because if I am going to have to put up with a left wing leaning stinking pinko in the Oval Orifice, I would rather not have one that hides behind a Republican label and pretends to care about conservative values.

You know, things like securing the border, reducing the tax burden, reducing the size and scope of government, and enforcing the Second Amendment?

It's funny the politicians can't figure this out. They are losing, not because they can't convince enough independents to vote for them, but because they have turned their collective backs on their base.

Ronald Reagan ran as a conservative, twice, and won, twice. The Reagan Revolution is not dead, it has been abandoned by the politicians.
