What's a Conservative, Neo-Con, Lost in the Woods, Republican leaning, Independent to do???????
So here I am, the day after my end-of-the-world day.
John McCain won.
John "ignore my voting record", "tax cuts are wrong", "amnesty is still good", "tax increases are good" "I really do not understand the economy", "political adds are not free speech", McCain, was selected by Republicans' in Florida to represent the party in November.
I am lost……..I cannot believe what happened………I must, short of the Republican base getting energized by these turn of events, conclude that Juan McCain is going to be the nominee.
John McCain is going to represent the Republican Party in November?
I cannot support Juan McCain. I will not support Juan McCain.
I just do not see a great, disconcerting difference between Juan McCain and Hillary Clinton.
Both are liberal, both will raise my taxes, both support amnesty for illegal residents, both will grow the government, and both are the same…….perhaps a co-presidency with Juan and Hillary and Bill would work.
I have had to step back and do some thinking……I know I can hear the snickering all ready about my (lack of, abilities) thought process….to make the following decisions.
Obama v. McCain, I'll vote for Obama, at least he can give me some hope. I would rather have the opportunity to wipe the slate clean, and start with someone new.
Hillary v. McCain, I will note cast a vote for either candidate, a vote for one is a vote for the other. I do not see a difference between the two.
I do hope that the McCain victory will spark the base of the Republican Party to turn out and vote on Super-Duper, Winner-take-all, Tsunami, Tuesday, February 5th 2008.
Sometimes a shock to the heart can revive a dying patient.
Perhaps the Republican Party at the national level, and the Republican Party of Florida, thought too highly and deeply of itself and believed the obvious differences between Mitt Romney and John McCain did not need to be pointed out and everything would take care of itself. Well it didn't, the patient has flat-lined.
I know this little hold-my-breath- stunt will not sway any voters. I am not trying to sway any voters.
I am trying to mentally stabilize where I will be in November of 2008.
I have to go now………..Mom put me in time out.
As always; subject to your review and comments.
