Composite Candidate for President

by Steve Ray on February 19, 2012

Wish I could make a composite candidate: 1) Gingrich’s knowledge and debate skills; 2) Santorum’s faith and passion; 3) Romney’s money and organization; 4) Paul’s constitutionality and fiscal sanity (in some ways).

They all have their negatives too. At this point if I were forced to choose between these fou it would probably be Santorum.

But, even a shoe would be better, do less damage, than what we have now–at least it’s tongue doesn’t wag destructively day and night and it’s sole is not arrogant but down to earth.

My bumper sticker reads: NOBAMA!

My husband said the same thing. Throw them in a pot, mix them together, skim off the scum, and then, boom, you have a good candidate.

I also like Santorum for his values. Newt is a close second for his grit. I wish that they (we) would get behind someone other than Romney. I cannot vote for a guy who believes that there are a lot of Gods and the his God has a physical body and lives on another planet that can be visited if we had the technology. Scary! That is not to mention that he baptizes your dead relatives each week and believes that Polygamy is still a true doctrine, just illegal. Romney was a Mormon bishop so not only believes this stuff but taught it too! If Romney was to be elected, he would be the second non-Christian president behind Obama.

After becoming active in the prolife movement, which led me to support and vote for Ronald Reagan, and George Bush (both), I stopped to examine my choice for this election.
Abortion remains the plague in our land. Not much has changed by falling in line and voting for the GOP, who promised to appoint Supreme Court justices who would overturn the terrible Roe v. Wade decision. And many of the justices on the court are GOP appointees. And still overturning Roe v. Wade remains the carrot on the stick that we never can quite reach. Every GOP candidate for the presidency is prolife, so that cannot be decisive. The recent HHS bill forcing Catholic hospitals to provide abortion and contraception is immoral, but it brought to light the failure of Catholics to accept children as gifts from God and the fruit of their married love. Instead, most Catholic couples contracept. And what of the bishops entrusted with teaching the faith, and guiding the morals of the flock they guide? Ask yourself this question: how often have you heard your pastor preach about the sanctity of human life, and to encourage the married couples to accept children as the fruit of their married love?
Our nation is broke; we are spending money we don’t have. Drastic cuts must be made if this country is to survive and thrive in the future. One way to cut the spending is to close military bases around the world (over 9,000), let countries provide for their own defense, and stay out of other countries internal affairs.
Finally, a president takes an oath to support the Constitution.
There is only candidate who has spent a lifetime defending the Constitution, voting for responsible federal spending, and supporting the use of our military only for just causes and with congressional approval. One candidate who has received more contributions from our soldiers than all the other campaigns combined!
Ron Paul.
