Thoughts on this presidential campaign...

So, I will admit - my man Huckabee is probably not going to win the nomination of the Republicans this year. I know, understatment of the year.

And thus, we've got McCain going up against Hillary or Obama.

GW Bush recently endorsed McCain, and so did Romney. That doesn't make me feel any better about Juan McCain. Getting the endorsement of blue bloods in my opinion is like getting the support of representatives of NAMBLA. OK, not quite, but you get the picture.

So, we're down to it - either a president that will guarantee us more wars, less jobs, and more amnesty, or a president that will turn us into the People's Socialist Republic.

More regulation, more control, more debt, less economic growth, less stature in the world...in escense, less of what made us great as a Nation.

I don't feel good about where our country is headed. We are headed for disaster, and our "leaders" keep right on the same path. Sure, I'd like to be optimistic, and I think there can be positives in the near future, but over all, we are going to have to deal with things sooner than later before our economy goes over the abyss.

When do we say "enough is enough" and start taking this country back? When we decide that giving up our cushy lifestyles to defend our remaining values for our children's future and benefit?

Are we willing to confront the nature of the beast, to right the wrongs of Washington and Des Moines and make this a free county yet again? Or, do we sit on our duffs and watch the parade of global socialism go by?

I know what you are saying, but what to do.

Back around year 2000 or so I was helping on a local campaign for a conservative/Republican. When engaging people one on one, they seemed to agree with me, that gov't tried to do too much, that it was not a good return for the tax money. But we didn't get that at the ballot box. Government spending seems to beget more government spending. Three quarters of the jobs in the local town here are city/state/fed gov't jobs, so I guess voters have some incentive to keep things going the way they are, but it seems at some point we have to pull up the rope ladder and take care of things in the tree house.
