now what?

now that governor romney has ended his presidential campaign, what do i do? i am a registered republican and i am proud of that fact. the republican party resounds strongly with my core beliefs. while both john mccain and mike huckabee are registered republicans, i do not trust either of them as far as i can spit. i have read in many other blogs and columns that some republican are considering a vote for barack obama or hilary clinton. i CANNOT do that. it is against who i am. why would i give my vote to 2 people who are immensely liberal to avoid voting for the most liberal of republicans? i think all three will sink the country. at least while bill clinton was president back in the 90s, we had the luxury of a republican controlled congress. bill was so concerned about being popular that he was easily swayed by congress.
so my question is this, fellow republicans, now what? shall we all write in on our ballots thomas sowell or condoleeza rice? we must vote for it is our right and privilege, but who for?

this cartoon sums up a lot of my feelings toward the barack obama campaign. do his constituents know that he was voted by his fellow congressmen the number 1 most liberal member of congress? perhaps that is the appeal for some of his supporters, but i have heard too many say, "barack rocks!", "he has a great personality!", and what a "moving and charismatic speaker". true, his commercials are very passionate and he has an incredibly engaging voice. but, we're electing a president here folks, not hiring a motivational speaker at a teamworking retreat. in the same poll, hilary wasn't far behind with a #16 ranking. are we doomed?

I'm at a loss as well. Imagine my embarrassment when I realized Georgia went to Huckabee, of all people. I don't know why people are voting for McCain. He's not a conservative!!!!!! Plus, I don't like his dirty politics (hello, West Virginia?!) Maybe we could all write in Romney?

Logan and I had this EXACT discussion this morning. We have no idea who to vote for at the moment. Needless to say it is going to be a difficult decision for the both of us.

i'm going to write down thomas's name. i've always thought that he would be an excellent president.
