Let us fast forward to the Saturday night food fight. Americans had to be embarrassed for the rude and crude activities of the one candidate. He lowered the discussion to levels far beneath the dignity of presidential debates. We quickly learned once again that the issues of import to him are issues about him and not about the people of the United States. He clearly revealed his demagogue personality. These personality flaws have surfaced many times before, but never so vividly.
Once again, in this debate (food fight) we had the same two candidates who again showed they have no place on the stage because they have no understanding of the issues. There answers are superfluous at best. They revert to their standard lines and have no direct or substantive answers or even observations. The one however, does continue to reinforce his progressive beliefs even to the point of commentators now openly questioning if that particular candidate belongs on the Republican stage or the Democrat stage. On at least four different occasions Saturday evening, he reinforced that his positions are aligned with the socialist/progressive movement and opposite of a conservative who is a constitutional adherent as he claims to be.
On Saturday evening we had two candidates who continue to back big government as the answer. They continue to adhere to the RHINO line that government is good, it should not be reduced only changed. They claim to be conservatives and constitutional adherents. But like Dole, McCain, and Romney, their solutions fall into the domain of government as the answer. The RHINO candidate has difficulty competing with the Democrat candidate because it is difficult to define a clear and understandable difference in the policies of the two.
The pleasant surprise on Saturday evening was that we had two candidates who clearly and articulately argued from the Goldwater and Reagan conservative viewpoint. That viewpoint conforms to those basic principles our founders warned us, and have been proven correct, are necessary for the United States to remain a free and independent nation whose greatness comes from its citizens and not its government. These four basic principles are adherence to “rule of law,” limited government, divided government, and rule by the people.
Perhaps, after the revealing food fight of Saturday evening, those citizens who claim they are Freedom Loving Americans, will look beyond the hyperbole, innuendo, and emotion so prevalent in this campaign. Instead they will search for and be able to accept and understand the underlying beliefs of the different candidates; beliefs that these candidates have revealed not only in the last several years, but continue to reveal and support to this very day.
We Freedom Loving Americans have a responsibility to the founders, our children, future American generations, the world, and ourselves, to be especially discerning and refrain from being swayed by brash but emotional statements that have no relevancy to reality or the positions of that candidate as revealed in there own statements. Never forget, McCain claimed to be conservative because it was necessary for his own best interest. During the campaign, his true progressive beliefs kept getting in his way. His campaign was terribly disjointed as are the campaigns of all deceivers. This deceit enabled the election of a Marxist/Progressive who has kept his promise to fundamentally transform the United States from a free independent nation to totalitarian Marxist state. We cannot afford to make that same mistake.
