Because I will not, will not vote McCain and I don’t heart Huckabee.
I’d vote for Paul in the 08 election if it was the 1908 election. Not so much this year.
By any measure, we live in the greatest country in the history of the world. Every generation of Americans has an obligation to keep it that way. And to do that we must remember how we got to where we are — and why we are so blessed.
That means remembering the fundamental, conservative principles that have unified us for over two centuries.
What are those principles?
-First, the role of the federal government is limited to the powers given to it in the Constitution
-Second, a dollar belongs in the pocket of the person who earns it, unless the government has a compelling reason why it can use it better
-Third, we don’t spend money we don’t have, or borrow money that our children and grandchildren will have to pay back
-And the best way to avoid war is to be stronger than our enemies. But if we’re caught in a fight, we need to win it because not doing so makes us much more likely to be attacked in the future
-Also the federal judiciary is supposed to decide cases, not set social policy — and bad social policy at that
-And the bigger the government gets, the less competent it is to run our lives.
Now these are ideals and principles that made our country free, prosperous and strong.
