"When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." - Benjamin Franklin;
"And when politicians find that honor and character matter less than buying votes and a constituency, that too will herald the end of the Constitution. When that happens we must work tirelessly to change their minds, or their occupation!" - Hoping The Blind Will See

My Take On Conservative America

There is no better illustration of the political ideologies struggling for prominence around the country as we battle for the very soul of America than the race in Delaware. Not only does conservative America have to beat back the challenge of a liberal Democrat, but they also had to beat back the challenge of a liberal Republican. When a Republican powerhouse like Karl Rove comes out and says that the people's choice to run on the Republican ticket is unelectable, you have to ask yourself what the Republican machine is really all about? Is that machine designed to provide clear alternatives to the Democrat agenda, or is it designed to help move the country further and further to the left - albeit, under the guise of not doing so?

The Republican establishment says that Mike Castle would have had an excellent chance to take the Senate seat in Delaware, but what if he had succeeded in winning the primary? Would the conservatives in America be better represented, or would the liberals just have one more Rino to help steer America to slaughter?  I suggest the latter would have been the case. So why then was the Republican establishment so adamant in their character slaying of Christine O'Donnell? And how does that impact her chances to win in November?

In my estimation, the final result is still entirely in the people of Delaware's hands. A state that has had to deal with the clownish persona of Joe Biden sure had better look hard at their choices this time around. They need to make sure they also look at the direction of the country - not just their own state. If we continue to elect liberal Democrats, or liberal Republicans, to national office conservative America doesn't stand a chance. We've been under assault for so many years, that to withstand even two more years of liberal policies and ideology may very well lead to losing the war. I predict it would do so.

As far as I'm concerned, there really is no choice for conservative America to make. If the Karl Rove's of the party are right when they claim that Republicans need to elect more moderate (liberal) candidates for office in order to entice more liberal minded people into the "tent", then conservative America has already lost. So their is no downside for us to elect the most conservative people we can find out there to run. I think we're seeing that manifest itself in several elections around the country where incumbents from both sides of the aisle are seeing stiff competition first from within their own party, and then, if they survive the primary, from conservatives from within rival parties. Stay the course America, vote conservative!

Stand With God, Stand For Liberty!
