On another thread, the question posed was what do you conservatives believe in anymore? Guy (whose name isn’t Guy, but that’s what I like to call him) had a beautiful response: “What most people who identify as Conservative believe in is personal responsibility. Each individual is responsible for his or her own life. Real Conservatives believe in the founding principles, the right of people to decide their own destinies, the right to be secure in their persons, the right to property, the right to pursue a better life for them and their families without a lot of interference from government. Less government is always better government. Progressives believe the exact opposite.”
If we are honest with ourselves, this philosophy is embraced by one candidate and one candidate alone. You know and I know that the candidate is Ron Paul. Call him crazy. Call him dangerous. Call me the Wicked Witch of the West because I’m not buying into all of these attacks against him. Somehow, “Crazy” Ron Paul has always been consistent. He is the true conservative and you all know it.
Oh! I forgot! We’re supposed to play the little voting game to ensure that Obama doesn’t get reelected! Guess the ruck what? I don’t want to play games any more or get drunk before I have to vote! I’m voting for Ron Paul. Guess you can call me wicked now, but I think if more people followed their hearts and not the media, we COULD all defy gravity.
My epiphany: The song “Defying Gravity” from the musical Wicked. The boys (Romney and Santorum supporters) shall be Glinda (The Good Witch). I shall be Elphaba (The Wicked Witch of the West)
So….who is wicked?
