American Voters Will Get the Government they ask for

Here we are, less than a week from deciding who the next President of the United States will be, and it will be a more important decision than it normally is. On one hand we have a closeted socialist with ties to every radical leftist and crook that he ever came into contact with, and on the other we have a so called Republican who gave us McCain Feingold, and tried his best to give us amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants. What’s a conservative to do?
Too many conservatives are willing to cut off their nose to spite their face. They believe, wrongly, that a little time in the wilderness will be just what the conservative movement needs to recharge it’s batteries and get its bearings. If we try that strategy by the time we get our bearings we’ll be coming back to an America we won’t be able to recognize.
Given what Barack Obama proposes to do- and given that it is very likely that he will have a supermajority in both houses of Congress- the conservatives and Republicans have little choice to vote for John McCain. Sure, McCain isn’t exactly Reagan, but who is? With McCain we know we won’t be ushering in a socialist era in American history. I don’t know about anyone else but socialism is something that I think we should try and avoid.
Obama promises to pass the Freedom of Choice act, a bill that would give unions the right to bully, threaten, and intimidate the workers into joining a union and forcibly unionize much of the economy. That’s hardly a recipe for economic growth. Then there are the massive tax hikes that will be required to support the trillion(that’s trillion with a T) dollars worth of new spending, this at a time when we’re already spending too much and running record deficits.
Any gains the pro life movement have made over the last eight years will be done away with. Obama is such a pro abortion fanatic that he was against helping children who survived botched abortions. Then there is his health care plan, which it to take the best most innovative health care system in the world and basically turn it into the Canadian system. The government can’t even deliver the mail on time, how am I supposed to believe they can run hospitals and provide people with adequate health care?
McCain might have his flaws, but at least he’s not proposing to turn the United States of American into a socialist state. I believe that if he is elected that wasteful spending will decrease, that our taxes will not increase, that the pro life movement will have an ally, and that only judges who actually understand and care about the constitution will be appointed to the federal bench.
We, as voters, know what we’re being offered. It’s a clear difference even if it’s not a perfect one for conservatives. We will certainly have a Pelosi-Reid led congress again we can’t afford to throw a President Obama in there as well.
It’s up to the American people to make the decision. If we end up with Obama and all the insanity that will come with him we will have no one to blame but ourselves.
