It's official: We will have a liberal president
With the withdrawal of Mitt Romney from the Republican presidential race, the country is now doomed to having a liberal president for the next four years.
No matter whether it's John McCain, Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama, we will not have a conservative in the White House.
We will not be supporting, endorsing nor voting for John McCain this fall. We subscribe to the Rush Limbaugh theory that if the country is going to go to hell, we don't want to see someone with an R after their name get the blame. Better for the Democrats to take the shots for the policy failings that will invariably occur.
Therefore, we're now officially on the hunt for a third-party conservative candidate whom we can endorse and vote for. Hopefully there will be a Libertarian Party candidate on the ballot this fall. We know a conservative third-party candidate will have no chance of winning, but we are not willing to sacrifice our principles and our honor by supporting McCain. That's not what conservatism is all about. We prefer to stand on principle and regroup for 2012.
We are truly saddened by this development. In our eyes, the Republicans are nominating the worst possible candidate. We'd almost prefer Ron Paul to John McCain. We don't relish seeing this fall's race for the presidency by two liberals.
