Who is the conservative/libertarian Presidential candidate in 2008?

Posted on December 22, 2007. Filed under: Blogroll, Links, Politics, Raves, Religion, War |

There are no perfect candidates–each has his/her strengths and weaknesses.

That said if you are a member of the conservative movement who would be your candidate for President of The United States in 2008?

Note I did not say Republican Party.

I believe there are only three choices–Fred Thompson, Mitt Romney and Ron Paul.

If the election were held today–I would vote for one of the three.

Now who is my first choice today–Fred Thompson with Ron Paul a very close second.

Why? Consistency! They consistently follow conservative/libertarian principles .

Who will get the nomination?

Unfortunately, I think the Republican Party is going to have a brokered convention. Deals will be made.

In terms of a Republican Party ticket that could win the election:

Fred Thompson/Mitt Romney

Fred Thompson/Ron Paul

Fred Thompson/Rudy Giuliani 

A united party wins elections.

A divided party or a third party candidate from the conservative base loses elections.

I am still hoping the Democrats will feel the warmth with a Al Gore for President and Hillary Clinton for Vice President ticket.

The two major issues in the 2008 Presidential campaign will be stopping illegal immigration with a sealed border and criminal alien removal and a new federal tax system–the FairTax or a national sales tax. 

The candidate who comes out in favor of the FairTax gets my vote.

The American people are tired of candidates saying they are for tax reform and tax cuts and then doing nothing or even increasing taxes or shifting taxes to the states, counties and cities with such policies as Open Borders.

I voted for both Bushes and all I have seen is either higher Federal or State and local taxes and fees mostly due to both legal and illegal immigration and wastefull spending.

President Bush should have vetoed the last Budgetary bill but instead signed it.

A FairTax or you will not be getting my vote and the votes of million of Americans that support it.
