Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Why selecting Romney is a bad idea...

Thomas Sowell explains it very well:

IMO we'll have to suffer through at least another four years of B.O., picking the wrong GOP candidate could feed into that.

"At least another four years..." Is there something you're hearing that I am not privy to?

As for Romney, he's to the right of McCain, and not the tax collector for the welfare state, as Dole was.

Also funny, in the Sowell column, he leaves out Newt Gingrich, who arguably was the ideological heir to Reagan, and, if values voters can just get past his personal foibles, is the ideas guy in this race, and would make Obama look like the SCFOAF that he is in debates.

Jay, the comment about "at least another four years..." reflects my paranoia regarding B.O.. IMO he'd cheerfully do whatever it took to bring about a revamping of our nation. "The ends justifies the means" is so easily associated with both him and his cronies.

Romney may be to the right of McCain, but I don't believe that says an awful lot. McCain has become the quintessential RINO.

As for Gingrich, Sowell may be discounting him due to the amount of "baggage" the man has. But if were selected as the GOP candidate he might surprise us all.

Correct me if I'm wrong, I seem to remember a lot of folks had no real high expectations of Reagan. At the time he was elected the national mood could be summed up as "ABC" or "Anybody But Carter". His growth into a conservative icon was a surprise, maybe Gingrich could repeat that.

I do not believe we have to worry about any years past the 8 possibilities for BHO. I think if something extra-Constitutional was tried, we'd see some states say "No."

I agree with your thoughts on Newt. We're not electing a Pope, we're electing something else, and personal flaws aside, I think Newt has what it takes.

WRT Reagan, I will semi-agree that his icon status is a surprise not to Conservatives, who saw his rise from 1964 to 1980, then the success of his fulfillment of most Conservative ideas, which in the '80's meant tax rate reductions and a tough stance with the Soviets.

Reagan's rise was 20 years in the making, so I don't think it's quite such a surprise. But, I think icon status is more than most of us were thinking at the time, but we knew we had a transformative leader.
