It is surprising that many so called "conservatives" would even consider voting for liberals like John McCain, Rudolph Giuliani, or Mitt Romney. Issue by issue, these stooges prove their liberal loyalties.
First off, and most importantly, all three support the third-world invasion of the United States. John McCain has gone out of his way to reward illegals and give them more rights than American citizens. Rudolph Giuliani offered illegals sanctuary in NYC at the expense of hard-working Americans. And Mitt Romney, who now says he's opposed to the invasion, only recently supported amnesty.
All three stooges have supported affirmative action, abortion, gay "marriage," and rampant secularism. They also support free trade, although we now have the largest trade deficit in the world. Historically, conservatives have opposed free trade, and they should. It is destroying our economy and undermining our sovereignty. But McCain, Giulinai and Romney have been "neoconned" on this issue.
Mitt Romney, of course, now says that he is pro-life, anti-affirmative action, and anti-gay marriage. One, however, only needs to pull up recent videos on YouTube to see that Romney is completely insincere about these beliefs.
All three also support a liberal Wilsonian interventionist foreign policy. Historically, conservatives have recognized that different forms of government were better suited for different cultures, and have opposed interventionist nation building. The stooges, though, like Bush, have been neoconned into supporting the Jacobin transformation of the Middle East into liberal democracy.
But these three stooges are not alone in their treason. They are joined by the likes of Sam Brownback, Mike Huckabee and Condoleezza Rice, who (like the stooges) support the third-world invasion of the United States.
In fact, the only people somewhat conservative to have announced exploratory committees are Ron Paul, Tom Tancredo and Duncan Hunter. Granted, Tancredo and Hunter voted for the illegal neocon war in Iraq, but they at least do not support the third-world invasion of America. In short, Paul, Tancredo and Hunter, despite their flaws, are the only choices for conservatives.
If McCain, Giuliani or Romney receives the GOP nomination, real conservatives will have no choice but to vote Constitution Party.
In the 1950s, when our country was under invasion, President Eisenhower responded with "Operation Wetback" and deported over 1 million illegals in a year. Today, however, backsliders like McCain, Giuliani and Romney would rather side with illegals than with their fellow Americans. Fifty years ago, these three would have been tried for treason. But now, they want to run for president? O tempora! O Mores!
