The time for unity has come, but not for the Democrats, for Republicans and conservatives. And, no, we don't need to organize a protest vote for Ron Paul. Despite the moaning of the average conservative, there are vast differences between McCain and Obama, and it is at McCain's side that we should stand.
Besides the "Go-Straight-to-Pennsylvania-Avenue" card that a third party would hand Obama, there are, indeed, some pretty compelling differences between McCain and Obama all across the party platforms. In the coming weeks, we'll examine many of these areas in detail, demonstrating why a conservative should be enthusiastic about a McCain presidency. For today, however, we are going to simply take a very brief look at two main reasons why Pitney and I have come out so strongly in favor of McCain.
You can go here to read Pitney's great piece on the selection of judges. The judicial branch of our government has overstepped its intended boundaries regularly and repeatedly. It is part of liberal pragmatism that they will take their victories any way they can get them. The ends justify the means even if the means rapes out constitution, and having judges legislate from the bench definitely falls under that category.
Obama's plans for a whirlwind love fest with the axis of evil speaks for itself. If you find a cobra in your bed, you don't grab a flute and try to win it over. Liberal naivete is fine--it's what makes them cute and kickable. But it is not okay in the role of Commander-in-Chief. Obama can dance around the campaign trail dropping rose petals out his bottom all the way to November, but the reality is something altogether different. If you don't stand strong against your enemies, then you will not long stand at all.
McCain for President. McCain for America. McCain 2008.
