I really do not see a reasonable candidate to vote for in the 2008 primary elections. So what should Conservatives and Christians who believe the Constitution and/or in moral absolutes of the Bible do? There is not much we can do about the Democrats because one of the two will get the nomination.
My suggestion is to Republicans and Independents. I believe that electing an acceptable candidate is no longer possible. Therefore, I suggest that you only vote for the candidate that has the least delegates locked up. The goal should not be for any one of the three candidates to win the primary. The goal should be to go to the convention without anyone having the nomination locked up. There will then be a brokered convention and the party will have to come up with someone else who will appeal to the majority of Republican delegates. That person would have to be a true conservative to win. That is the only chance a Conservative has of being nominated by the Republican party. The nominees running have proven by their past record that they will not support the values or the limited Federal government that we believe in.
If we fail to stop someone as liberal as McCain from getting the nomination we will need to start a third party based on returning to a strict interpretation of our Constitution and a society where the freedoms offered in the Constitution are upheld but those rights do not trample on the rights of the rest of us to worship God and to live in a moral decent society. This party should be created in 2008 not with the false illusion that we can win in 2008 but with the thought that whoever is elected in 2008 will make this country such a disaster that the heartland of this nation will be looking to return back toward its Christian roots and will be disillusion with both major parties.
I believe the next four years in this country could be one of the worst periods that the US has ever experienced as a nation. By 2012 many people may be looking to return to a nation of sanity. If the majority do not return, there will be a split between the liberal coastal states and the heartland states. The heartland is not going to allow coastal liberals to continue to force their godless agenda on them and their Children. We need to have a democratic political voice in place to peacefully secede from the Union if that turns out to be our last resort. If we do not, it still will occur but most likely it will not come about peacefully.
Certain pundits like in every election will bully Christians and Conservatives to vote for one of the least of the evils within our traditional two party system. However, we already tried that route a few too many times now. Doing that destroyed the conservative movement, allowed liberal debauchery to take over the nation and is now opening the door to hate speech laws that will shut down the Christian/Conservative voice permanently. It will be no different this year. If you vote for a phony conservative the country will continue to move rapidly toward socialism, liberalism, big government, taxation, and total brainwashing of our society by godless socialist control freaks that have undue influence in government, media, religion and industry.
Better to withdraw from the Republicans and regroup into a new party for a major offensive by 2012 than to be lied to and manipulated by people who have no intentions of ever supporting the US Constitution or Christian moral laws.
