Another Democrat In Republican Clothing
With a go-along-to-get-along approach to politics, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has endorsed liberal Republican Dede Scozzafava in New York's 23rd congressional district over Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman in the upcoming special election. Unfortunately, Scozzafava is cut from the same cloth as Senators Arlen Spector, Olympia Snowe, Susan Colins, John McCain, and even former Senator Bob Dole. The aforementioned Senators, two of whom ran for President and lost by huge margins and one switched to the Democratic party, are shining examples of what is wrong with the Republican party. Unfortunately, they all might as well be in the Democratic party.
The Republican party needs to stand on conservative principles or it will become a footnote in American political history, just as the Whig party has become. It is time for conservative Republicans to stand up for ourselves and vote our principles.
Let the liberal Republicans play the any-way-the-wind-blows game. Conservatives need to quit voting for these wishy-washy politicians and vote for people with conservative values. America will get the message. When cap-and-trade results in huge increases in the cost of utilities and lost jobs, America will get the message. When Obama-care results in long lines, rationed care and huge tax increases, America will get the message.
