Which Is More Important: “Conservative” Lip-service or Character and Honor

Share

There is one aspect of “Conservative Values” I’ve always found rather puzzling.  All a candidate needs to is do the old family values lip-service, and they seem to literally pull the wool over gullible closed eyes.

The cliche “Conservative Values” has become a joke – literally.  It leads me to ask a question:  Which do you want, conservative values and pandering lip-service from someone utterly corrupte, who will eventually bring dishonor to the GOP or a candidate of honor, decency, and character?

For me, I know what that answer is.  I have a tremendous amount of respect for the honorable and decent legacy of Ronald Reagan.  If you truly know who Ronald Reagan was, you would know he would never endorse or even accept a candidate who was alleged to have molested his 13 year old daughter, and hit his toddler son to the point where it left marks on his face.

Ronald Reagan would NOT support such a candidate.  Reagan, the ultimate patriot, would, instead, opt for the  candidate who was a proven patriot, hero, and man of honor, even if he was not a perfect conservative.

I can’t imagine even considering a vote for a man like Chris Simcox, who is nothing but a pandering, paranoid little unstable twerp who isn’t fit to even be in the same party with a great and honorable man like John McCain.

During the 2008 election cycle, I was honored to support such a man as John McCain.  I will not desert him now.  I know a man of honor and decency when I see one.  I also know a man of disrepute who will bring dishonor to the GOP when I see one.

Abel S. Delgado wrote the following at NextGenGOP.

“...My faith in the party was restored thanks to a few brave Senators who supported what they knew was right even when they knew it would fail and that they would almost assuredly face consequences in the future. Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Mel Martinez-himself an immigrant, let me know that some very influential people were fighting from within the party to make sure it would not go the way of the bigots. McCain especially, had plenty to lose back in 2006 and 2007, when a pro-immigrant record could have easily cost him any chance of winning the Republican Presidential primary. But he stood up for what he believed in….”
