At times I even surprise myself

Approximately 24 hours after I decided the GOP candidates couldn't stumble backwards fast enough, a spat between two of them over Iraq has convinced me that one stopped his reversal cold.

Yet even as I typed this post, I couldn't believe I was doing it.  Still, the process of elimination made it inevitable:

As I have traveled the road from Fairfax County political activist to Spotsylvania blogger, America has gone from a deceptive “peace” to a war for her survival against an array of enemies from the Middle East and Central Asia (Wahhabists, Ba’athists, and Khomeinists - hence my term for this war: the Wahhabist-Ba’athist-Khomeinist War, or WBK War for short).  Now, of the five candidates, only four (McCain, Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani, and Mike Huckabee) and seem to recognize the danger we face; only three (McCain, Giuliani, and Huckabee) seem determined to fight the enemy wherever it can be found; only two (McCain and Giuliani) are adequately aware of the ways of the world to put that determination to good use.

Only one has the experience, determination, foresight, and vision to win this war as soon as possible, and he is John McCain.

Surprised?  I know I am.

DO you think he can be trusted to be conservative at home? In other words, what are (we) fighting for?

(being Cdn, I can't really ask that, but I'd still like to know).

Everyone has ignored my post (3x), but I can't believe any conservatives can still ignore McCain's liberal policies. He's against waterboarding, pro amnesty (open borders), remind me again why he isn't running for the Democrats, and how he would be good for America? Soros supported...

I read your updated post, DJ.

It sounds to me like you really want to support Ron Paul. How many references to "except Paul" did I read?

Don't worry. He won't make you smoke marijuana or visit whorehouses - and you won't have to carry around a bag of silver coins to pick up milk, although you may want to given your dollar and the price of precious metals.

As for his foreign policy, he'll be forced to compromise. Besides, all Paul wants is a well-armed, peace-loving America capable of, and committed to, defending her borders against both Mexicans and Mullahs alike. That’s a conservative approach to national security...isn’t it?

He’s also got all the right so-con policies like his opposition to abortion.

Your subconscious is telling you to go with Paul. Be true to your inner self. :-)

He can't.
He's a "Neo".
He prefer to see Barack or Hilary operate under the CFR.

If you want a one trick pony support McCain. Other than that I would go with whoever will let the economy go through a process of self-healing and I don't see who will do that. Mitt might just be the closest.
