BUSY, BUSY, BUSY

Whether I want to or not, it has been one of those weeks when I get to take a break from blogging. As it happens, I suppose it is just as well. With Rick Santorum‘s announcement that he is suspending his campaign (see here), I am not exactly happy with our nation’s political situation. Supposedly, the suspension of Santorum’s campaign makes Mitt Romney’s nomination inevitable.

None of us is good. We are all phonies. None of us is as good as we would like others to think us. So anyone we elect must also be a phony. Nevertheless, I had hoped for something better than a choice between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama. Don’t we even care whether our politicians tell us the truth?

Anyway, I see no reason to hurry and get behind Mitt Romney, and I encourage Republicans to vote for Newt Gingrich in the remaining primaries. Should the Republican Party nominate Mitt Romney, I will vote for him, but that is only because he is not Obama.

  1. Tom, I just spent a bit of time on Walt’s site. It is a big confusing where his convictions truly lie. I guess Walt is representative of many Americans. They know things aren’t right, but they don’t know which road to take to make things right. I don’t have that problem. Some say I am too back and white when it comes to what’s right and what’s wrong for myself, my family and my country. I always harken back to that song, “If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.”

    1. Oh, I suspect Walt stands for something. The question is what.

      I suspect what Walt supports is pragmatism. We have a lot of “pragmatists” these days. Pragmatists want “results”, but pragmatists are not always sufficiently concerned about the means they use to get those “results”. Thus, without realizing what they are doing, they support a government which upholds the belief that the means justify the end.

  2. The last time before 2008 that I voted for a candidate instead against his opponent was 1984. The campaign in 2004 and the war in Iraq made me so angry that I started looking for someone to vote for. I decided to support Barack and by September 2007, not September 2008, I was certain that he would be the nominee and the victor in November 2008. The GOP owes the country a choice. The best choice on the table was Huntsman. I would have and will still vote for Barack, but the GOP is letting the country down. For that, they deserve defeat.

    1. Really? You would rather punish all of America with another four years of crippling deficits, out-of-control spending, a weakened military, a weakend position around the world, sky-high energy prices, a lying out-of-control Dept. of Justice, an adminstration with absolutely no regard for the constittution and personal liberty, more, intrusive job-killing regulations on industry, higher taxes…just because you are angry with the GOP?
      I truly understand voting your conscience. But please, just stay home on election day. We do not have time to nurse grudges when our country is falling apart.

      1. Walt thinks he is a Republican. http://bell-book-candle.com/2012/04/10/republicans-and-republicants/

        Frankly, I don’t understand where Walt is coming from. Admittedly, I have yet to examine Walt’s philosophy in detail. Nevertheless, that post of his (http://bell-book-candle.com/2012/04/10/republicans-and-republicants/) left me more confused than informed. How anyone can call themselves a Republican in the tradition of Abe Lincoln and still support Barack Obama mystifies me.

        What Walt exemplifies is the need for limited government. While it may be a good idea to understand the thinking of our neighbors, sometimes it just isn’t possible. Yet even when we do, it is rare for any two people (even when they are married) to agree about very much. We all want to have things our own way, and we compromise out of necessity.

        Usually, the best compromise is to agree to disagree, stay out of each others business, and do what we want to do our own way. After all, when government becomes too big, it requires a tyrant force to “necessity” down our collective throats. And that’s a situation that pleases very few.

  3. Hmmm… If he’s quit, (Not what I want to see either) what’s this?
