Why Alaska Governor Sarah Palin Will Probably Cause Me to Vote For John McCain
This was turning out to be the first presidential election since I became politically active that I was going to not vote. If McCain had selected Mitt Romney or some other slick RINO politician as his vice president running mate, I would definitely be sitting out this year's presidential election. I would rather have an out & out liberal like Barak Obama in office (without me actually voting for him) than to let people think that the kinds of things McCain spouts is really the ideological core of conservativism -- since it's not.
But by selecting someone like Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, I might just vote after all. Why you ask?
First off, she appears to actually unrepentantly hold to an ideology & lives it out. I'm so sick of people trying to tell us we need to be "bi-partisan". Why should we water down our beliefs if we believe they are the correct beliefs? Someone who claims to believe something & then will not defend it is someone who doesn't really believe anything.
Secondly, Palin has just enough experience yet without causing her to be an insider. Whereas Obama has so little experience, he is dangerous. The Obama campaign instantly tried to claim Palin doesn't have enough experience & that the Republicans can no longer use that charge against Obama. HUH??? Has Obama ever been a mayor of a city, whether that city had only 9,000 people or 9 million? Has Obama ever been a governor of an entire state? Just what kind of EXECUTIVE experience does Obama have? (or Joe Biden for that matter? -- the Senate is a legislative body...not an executive). For that matter, Palin is actually MORE QUALIFIED THAN HILLARY CLINTON WOULD HAVE BEEN. Again, Hillary has never been a mayor or a governor -- she has only followed on the coat tails of Bill Clinton.
Thirdly, I want to see the Republicans take back the title of innovators & for being for the common man. The Republican Party was more or less born out of the opposition to slavery -- how much more can you be for the oppressed than that? The first black senators, Hiram Revels & Blanche Bruce were Republican (see here & here). As a matter of fact, many of the "firsts" for African-Americans in politics has been via Republican ideology.
It is time this lie of the Democrats ended. They are NOT the champions of the common man -- history speaks against them on this. Obama even tried to use Martin Luther King jr's memory to launch his own liberal dreams...but did the Democrats forget to tell us -- MARTIN LUTHER KING JR WAS A REPUBLICAN (see here)
It is not that I am a diehard Republican but I AM a diehard ideologue when it comes to promoting the ideas that birthed the Republican Party. I AM a diehard advocate of the very things that drew the first black men, white men & generally people who love freedom to embrace the Republican Party.
I just want the lie of the Democrats & the media to STOP. I never have been a big fan of liars, be they in politics, theology, or my every day life. So, I may vote after all.
