"In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends." -- Martin Luther King, Jr.
With the suspension of Rick Santorum’s campaign, it seems Mitt Romney will the Republican nominee for president. Though I had reservations about Santorum’s candidacy, I am truly disappointed it seems a true conservative will not be a viable choice this election. The question then becomes: What’s the goal of this election? For me, firing Barack Obama is the ultimate goal. It’s one we can’t afford to miss. How do we do that? How to we ensure he’s a one-term president? Vote for Romney? Vote for a 3rd party? Don’t vote at all? Can anything be done (and I mean seriously be accomplished) before the convention?
"Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed, if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not so costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance for survival. There may be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no chance of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves." -- Winston Churchill.
I pray all conservatives, Christians, independents, Constitution-loving Americans, to fully support whatever option will beat Barack Obama. In my opinion, there will be no knight-in-shining-armor elected into office. It falls to us; we the people, to turn the tide and fight for our American ideals.
