It's the Record Stupid

Just need to re-iterate, before the super Tuesday event, that I will absolutely never cast a vote for that despicable Quisling McCain.

If he wins the primary, he has a pathetic chance to be president, after the MSM instantly throws the blade switch in their newsrooms from 'Mac is Back', to 'Stab Mac in the Back'. Even if he miraculously takes the general election, nobody will be able to point to this disaster, then point to me and say... 'See what you republicans did to the country?' As if I played a role in this choice; which I, most assuredly, will not.


If you set out to be liked, you would be prepared to compromise on anything at any time, and you would achieve nothing.

- Margaret Thatcher










I am already sick of explaining to morons that consistently refuse to listen, that most of the egregious complaints against George Bush are a result of his liberal domestic positions, his capitulation to media pressure, his concensus driven lack of spine and his general abandonment of conservative fiscal principles.


There are still people in my party who believe in consensus politics. I regard them as Quislings, as traitors... I mean it.

To me, consensus seems to be the process of abandoning all beliefs, principles, values and policies. So it is something in which no one believes and to which no one objects.

- Margaret Thatcher





McCain would be another Bush presidency without the tax cuts, without the conservative judicial appointments, without the terrorist water boarding policy. Additionally we would enjoy a complete abandonment of border security, presidential capitulation to this absurd global warming hoax and on and on and on... Don't tell me that he has actually changed his positions on these issues. The man is an outright liar.

I was talking to my friend Steve, another conservative and Romney supporter. Unlike me, if Mac takes the primaries, he will not write in his candidate on the general ballot. He will vote democrat. This seemed a bit extreme to be. He did made a compelling argument, though. Knowing that there is only a rancid choice between McCain and Democrat-X, you put the hand of the real liberal on the handle of the flushing toilet. This way, as the country is swirling in the bowl, the appropriate blame goes to the right party. A McCain presidency is slow poison to the GOP, moving Reagan conservatism towards destruction.

All I can say is that next Tuesday's results are more important than the general election. It better be a good one.

If you want to cut your own throat, don't come to me for a bandage.
- Margaret Thatcher











You tell them Maggie. When I go to vote for a woman president, I only have eyes for someone like you. By the way, Mitt got the honorable Thatcher thumbs up.

Some Thoughts on our Broken Elections

Anne has some interested points in her latest article, "The Elephant in the Room". This also relates to the recent Kossack post urging voters to screw up the numbers in key primar(ies).
This Wikipedia article on open primaries clearly defines the issue.

Much praise has been heaped on the fact that people have the freedom now, to register as independents and pick whatever ballot they want to pick at the last minute. On the surface, most people would say more freedom is a good thing.

In the case of the primaries, not the general election, I see it as a serious threat to the ideological process of candidate selection. This means people, who would be satisfied with any of the D-grade candidates, can register as independent, falsely label themselves as undecided and proceed to place a covered call on our election process. This strategy destroys the quality of the other side's selection process.

Look at what we have in 2008. We have a straight socialist liberal line-up for the Democrat ticket. We have a mixed liberal/conservative/libertarian line-up for the Republican ticket. This means undecided MSM and Kos driven zombies can be safely and strategically directed by the Kucinich mothership to place a vote in a Republican primary, to the detriment of the party's ideological selection process. By the time the general election rolls on by, we a heavily watered down or unelectable candidate, while the other side just takes the devil picked out of their deck.

If we did not have such an untrustworthy media, with its blatant propaganda and associated bias , open primaries might not be such an issue. As one of my earlier posts points out, the watered down results actually have a feedback effect that makes the problem worse.

The only way to fix the problem is to somehow make people live with the decisions they make in the ideological selection process, or force independents to select and create their own primary candidate. I do not see the old style caucus system coming back any time soon.

What should be done immediately, is all primaries should occur on the same day, just like the general election. This would eliminate all of this painful state-by-state polling garbage. The MSM would not be able to swoop down on each small state, so they can turn the delegates into moronic 15 minute instant disposable celebrities, celebrating their equally moronic undecided status for the cameras.

BTW, Mac Johnson has another hilarious article on Human Events.

An Election Confession

I will never cast a vote for John McCain under any circumstance.

If he gets the nod, I will be writing in Mitt Romney or Fred Thompson. This would be the first time in my 42 years on this earth, that I break my hard rule of voting for ideology, during the primary and the party ticket, for the general election.
John McCain represents the most reprehensible form of politics to me. He represents the politics of consensus. I am not talking about the ideal dictionary definition of cooperation and bipartisanship, but the shameless Quisling style pandering to that great unelected body called the main stream media.
With the exception of Iraq, the man has been on the wrong side of every issue I care about.

You rarely see any compromise from the other side of the aisle, unless they are certain they can deny it later, or count on their media comrades to smother it. This means it always comes down to maverick 'conservatives' like McCain being the party in the senate shower room, who bends over for the soap. Ugh.

If the country plunges into the depths of despair, better it be done by swift decapitation, instead of a thousand razor slashes and the subsequent gangrene of a McCain presidency.

A person who cannot grasp the concept of first amendment liberties, the need to interrogate terrorist scum with any means necessary, the need to keep taxes low and immigration law enforced is not just the lesser of two evils. It is the choice between Tweedle-dum and Tweedle-dumber.

Sigh.

Oh yeah, The Boston Globe endorsed him. What does that tell you?
