Republican Party - local, state, or national (although we have been, in the past). Nor do we financially support the various national Republican organizations. We decided long ago to support only individual candidates, since the national organizations have a disappointing habit of supporting liberal candidates.
In 2008, we cast our ballot for Sarah Palin, despite the fact the John McCain was the Presidential candidate. Since then, we have consistently said we would never again vote for a liberal GOP candidate like McCain.
But the longer we watch the Marxist reign of Barack Hussein Obama II, the more we realize that the 2012 Presidential election may be unique. We are beginning to believe that the next national election will decide whether or not the United States of America remains a Constitutional Republic.
We do not want our America to melt into the murky darkness, as so many declining nation-states have done, and are doing. We'd prefer to see elected officials who are citizen-servants, rather than elitist political-class rulers. We'd rather see a limited Federal government, which our Founders envisioned. We'd like to see many Federal departments and programs curtailed or abolished. We'd rejoice over a balanced budget, reduced debt, and relaxed regulation. Obama and his minions seem to hold the polar opposite view.
During what surely will be a rigorous Republican Presidential primary campaign, we will support Constitutional conservatives. We will politely and respectfully point out the policy deficiencies of liberal Republicans, sometimes referred to as "RINOs" (Republican In Name Only). And you can count on us to continually deride the progressive, anti-American policies of the Obama Regime.
But in November 2012, we will vote for the victorious GOP candidate, whoever that is, because we are convinced that this nation cannot survive a second Obama term.
