It Could Be Worse
Looks right now like Mitt Romney will be the Republican nominee. It could be worse. Obama could win a second term. No doubt the Chicago thugs are, at this very moment, plotting every treacherous, underhanded move they can make to steal the election.
The only true conservative (Michele Bachmann) has dropped out of the race, leaving us with a field of moderates and one Libertarian (i.e. loon).
I don't trust moderates. As Rush Limbaugh is fond of saying, the only thing you'll find in the middle of the road are yellow stripes and dead armadillos. Anyone who has driven through Texas knows the truth of that remark.
Moderates compromise. Compromise is giving up something you believe to be good to adopt something you believe to be bad. Liberals are constantly calling for compromise, but it it's so wonderful, why don't THEY do it? Imagine what the history of this country would have been if moderate Republicans had compromised with Democrats on the issue of slavery. Instead, "Radical Republicans" pressured Lincoln into signing the Emancipation Proclamation and pushed through the 13th Amendment. The so-called "radicals" went on to fight the democrats' Jim Crow laws, Black Codes and segregation. And now, democrats call Republicans who oppose abortion, "radical." The players and the rhetoric doesn't change -- only the crimes against humanity.
Moderates seem to blow with the wind. You never quite know which side of the issue they'll come down on -- which way they will flip. Supreme Court Justices Souter and Kennedy are poster boys for this inclination.
However, whomever is nominated, we must remember one thing. He'll be infinitely better than Obama.
