The Republican primary has become a indicator of what has become of the
conservative movement in general. The right wing has moved so far to the right
that it has become a delusional cargo cult that worships the fanciful memory of
Ronald Reagan. All you have to do is listen to AM radio for ten minutes to
hear the most negative, distorted, whining, blather you have ever heard and
every 3 minutes some reference to Ronald Reagan is made. Apparently he cut
taxes, balanced the budget, brought on world peace, over turned Rove vs Wade,
and re instituted prayer in the schools, in this FIRST TERM!
Sadly, mud-slinging works. If you don't do it you lose.
What I really want to hear is a cohesive, comprehensive plan spelled out with
supporting numbers that will tell us all EXACTLY how each of these candidates
will accomplish what they are promising. I'm very tired of the vague, nebulous,
slippery rhetoric they pour forth every day.Just give us the facts
and nothing but the facts. Truthfully.That would be real
leadership.Unfortunately, we'll never see or hear it.
