Someone sent me this E-mail I thought I would share with you [SIZE=+2]Doug Edelman[/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]02/17/08[/SIZE] [SIZE=-1] 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.
