Apparently, Cynthia, it is too much to ask. It was a disgraceful spectacle for
McCain to parade around as the candidate of the "family values party";
it's downright nauseating to watch Gingrich rising up to play the same role. Is
the Republican Party really so hypocritical down to the core? Excuse me while I
Cain's strategy of denial didn't play as well as Gingrich's strategy of
confession, apology, and (alleged) repentance. Of course, Gingrich couldn't
really deny his missteps because they were so well documented. Apparently
Republicans are willing to forgive and forget rather than question a person's
real character as reflected in his past history -- except when it comes to
Romney's flip-flops on health care, abortion, immigration, etc.
And a very quick, cursory fact-check on Mitt Romney will answer the question:
"will we have someone conservative, decent and honest to vote for?".
The answer is an unequivocal NO!
Conservative, decent and honest are three words rarely found in the same
sentence, much less in the same person.Good luck finding that person
(he doesn't exist).
Decent, Honest candidate?Not in any of these debates.
Complain to your GOP! They're the ones deciding this.For once, the
repubs can't blame their horrible candidates on the liberal media. The repubs
are digging their own graves here. They're the ones giving Newt new life. When the repubs lose this next election badly, they don't need to
complain about the liberal media "mudslinging" but merely look in the
mirror. Provide America with someone good folks! It's not that
Funny though, where have all these women dissappeared to who accused Cain? They
seem to have crawled back into the msm's shadow. It makes you wonder just how
far they would go to discredit a black (as he refers to himself), conservative
Excuse me, but you had someone like that with Jon Huntsman Jr. -- but you
guys threw him under the bus.How about you give it another go in
Unfortunately that "conservative, decent and honest" candidate is not
Mitt Romney. Too bad Jon Huntsman dropped out.
Let's see Newt's first wife got dumped (in favor of a mistress) when she had
cancer. Wife number two got the same news when she was diagnosed with MS.

Ron Paul has been married to the same woman for 54 years. Has served in the Air
Force. Delivered over 4,000 babies as a doctor. Ran his own medical practice
where he had two rules. They would not perform abortions, and they would not
accept federal money. Instead, they would give free or low cost services to
struggling patients.I'd call that decent.Ron Paul hasn't
been known to change his words to fit the crowd he's speaking to. He doesn't
take part in the lucrative Congressional pension program. Terry Holt, who
worked on George W. Bush's campaigns, and a former Republican staffer, said
this: "He has never been someone who was interested in being co-opted
or in trading and dealing...There was nothing he wanted that we could offer him
in exchange for his vote."I'd call that honest.Based on statistics collected by the American Journal of Political Science,
Ron Paul has the most conservative voting record of any congressperson since
1937. If you define conservative as limited government, adherence to the
Constitution, a foreign policy that first defends America...I'd call
Cynthia isn't being held back from supporting anyone she likes, but that person
just may not be a Republican. It's pretty hard to see a hero coming from the
filibustering, oppose-Obama-at-any-cost, tiny-tent cabal that is today's GOP. I
don't know just what Cynthia prefers in a candidate, but the meaning of the term
"conservative" appears to change every day.
Sorry Cynthia, that combination of qualities does not exist in any known human
being. The problem for us is that all the candidates are members of
the cult of commercial business and as such are even more so deficient in those
qualities. The phony nomenclature of democrat, republican, liberal,
conservative dont really have the breadth to describe the true nature of
business minded people. Most all authoritative positions in
government are held by businessmen.Most all government actions are
taken in the interest of businessmen. Even those laws that secure our rights
and freedoms.Candidates seeming invest much more money in getting
elected to the position than the position itself pays. The truth is, the
profitable gain from private sources is the real motivation. Personal qualities like morality and honesty are far overcome by the need for
Obviously the conservatives cannot deliver, and the Republicans have driven out
sane, pragmatic candidates (Huntsman and Pawlenty). I guess that leaves

The decent honest candidate (Ron Paul) is under attack by the mass media because
he is not anti-constitutional like these other candidates are.
Huntsman is not honest at all. His campaign makes a racist video and blamed it
on the Ron Paul campaign. This was admitted. Now tell me how that is honest?
@David KingRon Paul has been in Congress off and on since the 1970s.
What has he accomplished? What has he led the charge on? What major,
far-reaching legislation has been sponsored and gotten through committee, voted
on and signed into law by the President. I'm not electing a
doctor-in-chief, but a President who can lead and get things done. Ron Paul can
talk the talkd, but a little skimpy on the walk the walk. Actions
speak louder than words.
