There hasn’t been a real solid conservative candidate for president in the Republican Party since Ronald Reagan! A Democrat Lite ticket will always lose, because most people will not get excited about a moderate candidate, as the last two elections have made abundantly clear.
Another thing that must be considered is if non-Republicans can continue to nominate mamby pambys like John McCain for the Republican Party to run as their candidate for president, you can be assured that the base will not turn out, and that means a Democrat win. All this talk about moderation seems odd considering that the moderate and spineless “Republicans” in Washington seem to be more the problem than the solution. Ronald Reagan didn’t set forth moderate ideas or confusing double-speak, on the contrary he was very bold, forward and steadfast in his convictions, and this is what attracted people to him and the Republican Party of his day! Today’s Republican leaders for the most part are hesitant, weak and unsure at best, in what they believe or if they believe anything, and have very little propensity to stand on solid principles that at one time sustained the party and still would if our leadership and party members are convinced enough to once again stand on timeless moral principles.
May God once again grant us the fortitude to stand on the solid conservative principals that we once stood for!
