Perfect message, but just a little too late, say some South Carolinians. I say bullshit.
If you agree with the message of the candidate, whether that candidate is Fred Thompson, Ron Paul, Rudy Giuiliani, Mitt, McCain, or even Hitlery, then you have a RESPONSIBILITY to vote that way in the primaries. That's what primaries are for - finding out which candidate is most in line with the beliefs and philosophies of the party's voters. If you think Fred's message is perfect, then you absolutely MUST cast your primary vote that way.
Interestingly enough, Fred's message is the one that happens to be closest to President Reagan's (I'm bringing that up since the South Carolina debate seemed to be a contest of who could be the most Reagan-like). Don't you just love Rudy's statement that he would mount a 50-state campaign to win the election just like Reagan did - made on the very same day he pulled all his staffers out of South Carolina and Michigan? Nice 50-state campaign, you dork. Rush often says that conservatism wins every time it's tried, and I do believe he's right. Americans gravitate toward it, and its implementation is always successful. Indeed, when a conservative president gets into trouble, it's almost always for doing something liberal - like raise taxes.
There's no doubt in my mind that Fred Thompson wants to win this election. None at all. However, his campaign staff stopped sending emails right after the Iowa caucuses. How exactly do they expect to raise the needed funds to get anywhere? How do they think we're going to get the only electable conservative elected by just sitting around on their asses and doing nothing?
To the Thompson campaign, I say this: Get off your sorry asses and get them into gear. Fred is the last hope we have of having a conservative president take over in 2009 after 20 years of liberal bullshit in the White House. Other than Fred, neither party offers anything but liberals. This election should be a breeze - and the primaries should be the easy part. Why are you idiots making such a farce out of it?
