The Electing of a President
One of the latest liberal demands for voters in the upcoming political race is that we shouldn’t look at certain presidential contenders as female or black, but just as candidates. This would be an interesting suggestion, but the problem is that the very same people can’t stop promoting the gender differences, skin color or the social concerns related to each. So this means we shouldn’t consider the race or gender of a candidate, but should vote for a candidate based on the positive attributes of their race or gender? What you have just witnessed is the madness of thought in a PC world.
Another inconsistent trait of liberals is that they tend to mask their candidates so we don’t know who they really are. They have this Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde thing going on by presenting themselves as something they are not. Before the election we are presented with the kind and caring Dr. Jekyll and once elected it’s back to the self-absorbed Mr. Hyde. They say anything to get elected, but afterwards it’s back to pedal-to-the-metal liberalism.
Next we have the moderate candidates that masquerade as being conservative. They talk like a conservative, but have the walk of a moderate. They water-down or redefine what conservatism is, so they can appear to fit the mold. You will usually find them on the Republican ticket, but recognizing them can be a challenge. It may help to know that President Bush is such a leader. He has taken conservative stances on a few issues, but his record indicates that he is a moderate. If he would have held fast to conservative principles he would have done fine, but he didn’t and we all know how that has turned out.
On your quest for wisdom you must understand that when selecting a candidate for president, promises are usually deceptive. You must look at their record in order to get a better picture of the person. If they have no record to speak of then walk away. In these dangerous times a rookie in charge is suicide. During a time of war we can choose a strong leader or we can choose weak leader, but however the majority rules we the people will get exactly what we deserve.
