You know, there's more to a presidential candidate than how they honor the Constitution. Social issues are big for me

As far as I'm concerned, the #1 role of any politician in this country is to uphold the Constitution of the United States. If they can't do that, they are not fit for office, IMO.

When the hell did it start becoming OK to vote for a whole new system of government in this country? That in essence is spitting on everything our founding fathers fought for.
I am disgusted w/ this social democracy crap that is being blatantly pushed for. AMERICA (in its intent) WAS NOT MEANT FOR PPL LIKE YOU!!! I will keep saying it. Go choose one of the many other socialist gov't around this world and let them take your money and hold you down from your potential and let those of us who are thankful to be given the personal responsibility and who understand the value of what we were given in this country enjoy it.
We're screwed. My kids are screwed. Everything I have worked hard for is screwed.
Well, I guess in ten years I'll check back with all you socialist pushers and see if you are really happy or still complaining.. I am betting on the latter.

That's the problem, though. Those conservatives you mention? They are not really conservatives. A true conservative believes in lower taxes AND small government. We have not had a true economic conservative in power in this country in a very, very long time. Some may have preached it, but very few have practiced it. That's especially true of the Congressional leaders of the 'Republican Revolution' in the 90s. You won't find many rank and file Republicans too enthralled with those people these days.
