Stop Calling Me.

I get calls and letters wanting me to contribute my money to another failed candidate in the election cycle. I went off on one today and thought that you may want to know what I told them. If more Americans would stand up and tell them what we want maybe they would give it to us.

McCain may be the GOP candidate but he is not my candidate. He is only slightly better than the democratic alternatives and I cannot contribute to this gross dereliction of duty and dishonor being served on the American people. I will vote for him because he is the best of the worst, not because he will represent me and my conservative values in DC.

We need a candidate who will close the borders and in so doing fix the economic tailspin we are now in. We would eliminate billions of dollars in wasteful spending by cutting these people out of the American dole. We would save our schools by eliminating the 20-40% wasted on ESL and other subsidies that support the illegal’s in American educational programs. We would reduce the cost of health care by 25% by simply having real citizens who pay their bills, use our medical services.

This labor pool loss will offset the losses in employment under a recession and bolster the economy. Unemployment would hold steady at 5% or less making American citizens gainfully employed and the job openings may even encourage others not currently contributing to the pool to re-enter.

We need a candidate who will make strong energy choices, with a focus on using what we have here and stop feeding the source of the terror problem. We in America have vast energy choices that could easily bring us to full independence in ten years. We would have to put a real and unified effort into making this happen. We would have to return to majority principals and drill in ANWR, mine coal, and use our technologically advanced nuclear energy systems. We would need to squash NIMBY attitudes and build attitudes that declare, “What is good for America is good right Here!”

We need a candidate who would promote America First Education. We are a great nation and we have occasionally made mistakes, but that should not be the primary focus of education. We need a core curriculum that focuses on our successes and points to the flaws in other systems. We need to stop promoting other flawed systems without first establishing a healthy respect of the American Constitution and System of Government. We need to actually teach American history and not fear or hide any religious intentions that may have helped establish our nation. The truth about our religious heritage is not to be hidden but encouraged so students can fully understand the bravery and motivation of those who were willing to risk everything to create this nation.

We need a candidate who will fight terrorism in the backyards of the terrorist and not in the backyards of America. We need to use all our resources to find the terrorists and attack them where they live. They will soon realize that choosing terror is choosing a very short future for them and their family. Any candidate who believes that we can bring all our troops home is inviting the terrorists to follow and that is unacceptable.

We need a candidate who can plainly talk about how much money America is giving foreign nations. They need to be willing to stop the flow if we are not getting any benefit. If they want our help, they will change their ways. We cannot afford to prop up every nation on the planet with our tax dollars.

We need a candidate who understands that our money is just that, Ours-the American peoples. It is not an everlasting spigot that they can keep turning up the flow. They need to focus on the real and constitutional requirements of government and when those needs are met, petition the people as to what other programs are wanted and necessary. We need to stop giving to every “good” cause and start meeting our obligations first. If a truly “good” cause arises, simply announce it to the American people. We are a kind and generous nation and any cause worthy of our money will be honored with an out pouring that will exceed expectations and needs. The government can return to taking care of America knowing the people will take care of the worthy cause. Any cause not found worthy in the eyes of the people, will receive little and is not to be bolstered or challenged by the government.

We need a candidate who understands the value of a common language and will take steps to promote English. No law will be written that denies people the right to speak any language they chose, but all business and activities promoted by the government will be rendered in English. All printed materials will be in English. No alternative language options will be required. The common language of business and education will be English. This unifying language will reduce costs, confusion and promote increased growth and achievement in all areas of society.

We need a candidate that understands defense and the security of this nation. We must never be afraid to field a bigger force and provide for the protection of our borders. Our security is the first priority of our government and anything that can be done to enhance that should be tops on the list. Any innovation or creation that will give our military an advantage no matter how slight should be put into immediate use. No options will be over looked that could increase the safety and survivability of our troops. Any weapon that will eliminate the enemy should be an available option. No candidate should ever suggest that anything would be removed from the table. Their key declaration should be, “We are in it to win!”

If a party could field a candidate who could do these basic things, they would win a landslide victory. This is the candidate America wants. This is the Candidate America should get.

My guess is, the caller started getting glassy-eyed and saying "uh-huh" every five words.

Excellent message.

Now, for my run in 2012, would you like to be an adviser?

Glassy-eyed happened well before they called Ablur. Otherwise, they wouldn't have chosen to work in the office of a candidate that doesn't come close to the conservative American ideal. Certainly, they would have chosen a better way to spend their time.

What we need to do is stop focusing our efforts on general elections and get more serious about primaries. Too many people were distracted by the plethora of marginal choices like McCain and Giuliani to make a decent choice, and too many people stayed home.

As long as the same batch of people pass through the primary process we'll be limited to the same choices in the general election. Rather than always choosing the best of the worst, we need to start fielding the best of the best.

Heck, even the worst of the best has to be better than the best of the worst.

Well written post. I agree with most of it, but I happen to like McCain, not all his stands, but most of them. And as you know, the choices left in the race are not choices at all!

I guess America will need Superman with the heart and attitude of Jesus Christ.

Too bad, such a person will never be born, not in America, not anywhere. Politicians are all the same. --Durano, done!

We've already done this, told the RNC no more money. We will support individual candidates that believe the way we do. We have given to the RNC in the past.

As far as the telephone calls, you can't talk to those people. They have a script and they are going to stick to it as long as you stay on the line.
