    MEMO TO DISAPPOINTED, FRUSTRATED, ANGRY AND DISGRUNTLED CONSERVATIVES[/SIZE]


    [SIZE=-1]It is true McCain is NOT the ideal candidate. But he does appear to be the nominee, and he DOES stand with us 70% of the time. So take a few deep breaths and follow this line of reasoning:

    [/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]While McCain's contrarian 30% may give us apoplexy, we must remember that Obama and Clinton are Fabian Socialists (please Google it) who would be a 100% disaster for our country.

    [/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]Therefore, Conservatives should not feel that they would be “violating their conservative principals” by holding their nose and casting their vote for McCain!

    [/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]You're not ENDORSING him by casting such a vote. Instead, you're UPHOLDING your conservative principals by DENYING the Presidency to Obama or Clinton!

    [/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]Sitting out the election would be an inexcusable failure to USE your vote to PREVENT electing a dangerous Leftist. Casting a vote for “bad” is preferable to passively permitting the election of “worse”! It has been said: “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good people to do nothing.”

    [/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]But feel free to express your anger toward the GOP leadership which has moved the party to the Left! I personally have ceased all financial support of the RNC (and have told them so!), resigned from the Pachyderms - leaving my position as Vice President of my local chapter, and have declared myself to be an Independent. But I will continue to support any (R) candidate who espouses conservative positions.

    [/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]Most importantly, we conservatives must bear in mind that while the President wields significant power... a conservative Congress can keep ANY President in check - especially if they have a Veto-Proof majority. Therefore, we must vigorously, energetically and enthusiastically support[/SIZE]


    Personally I think this reeks of the Same "anyone but Bush" crap that doomed Kerry in the 2004 election.

    But being a Conservative, I understand their frustration.

    If you're a Rebpublican/conservative, of course McCain is going to represent your views better than Hill-bama.

    That's not the point.

    The point is do you think that a McCain presidency would forward our movement or set us even farther back.

    How are Obama or Clinton "100% disaster for our country"?

    Even if you don't agree with them, they can't be 100% bad? I don't agree with the current administration, but I don't see them as a 100% disaster. There are just too many variables and levels of government(congress, judicial, state and local) for any president to be 100% disaster even if they are bad for the country. You can't tell me that Bill Clinton was 100% disaster.

    i'd say the system itself sets us all back. one party is ok for awhile, the other catches it, they keep changing places...

    as long as we live in a system where we fight ourselves as much as we do now, we all suffer. period.

    Well said. Politcal parties and the infighting it causes make us all suffer.

    Washington warned us of political parties when he left office.

    We've forgotten how to compromise.

    A McCain presidency could push the conservative movement forward or back but either way it is better than the alternative.
