The Perfect Presidential Candidate

… Why We Do Not Need One, …And What We Really Need

In this age of crisis, where our, security, our solvency and our very freedom are at stake, one is tempted to look for the perfect presidential candidate; however, we should not get into “the man on a white horse” syndrome.  When we do that, we put too much focus on the candidate and not enough on ourselves.  When we do that we are more subject to falling prey to manipulation and to a spirit of dependency.  Each of the four Republican Presidential candidates has some strengths and some weaknesses.  One does not have to be a Mitt Romney fan to know that the Constitution and religious freedom is safer in his hands than in Obama’s.  One does not have to be a Rick Santorum fan to know that unborn children will have better prospects under his leadership than under Obama’s and that the military will be better supported.  One does not have to be a Newt Gingrich fan to know that we have a profoundly better chance of addressing the debt in his hands than in Obama’s.  And, one does not have to be a Ron Paul fan to know that our currency has a better chance of having a real and stable value (profoundly affecting our security) under his leadership than under Obama’s.

Of course we must do our best to promote the person we believe most likely to lead us in an effective manner (and who must be able to win the General Election); but, as Constitutional Conservatives, it is vital that we unite behind the eventual nominee whomever he is.  Four more years of an Obama Presidency would embolden the far left and it would provide more opportunity to bend the Constitution through executive actions and the granting of new powers to the non-transparent Czars.  It could also lead to untold damage to our Constitution through the appointment of federal and federal Supreme Court judges who believe that a federal court may update the Constitution without benefit of the Constitutional Amendment process when deemed desirable by that court.  The overall result would be a continuation in the direction of socialism, government intrusion and control of all aspects of our lives, and bankruptcy.

While Texans have a limited say in the Presidential nomination process, we have more say in the election of our Congressional Representatives.  By sending good Constitutional Conservatives to the House and Senate, we can actually influence the Presidency itself.  We need to elect “game changers” in the House and Senate.  Rather than the perfect presidential candidate, what we really need is for the citizens of this country to become much more involved in the process of choosing all of their candidates for local, State and National office.  Any of the four Republican candidates will be a better president if we elect good House Representatives and Senators.  It is essential that all concerned citizens talk to their neighbors and friends who share at least some of their conservative values and help get out the vote!

  • Well, if we are real honest with ourselves we know their is only one perfect candidate. But unfortunately my wife will not let me run so we must pick form the candidates available… In the end no ,matter who wins the Republican nomination we MUST stand together to beat the American hating Barack Hussein Obama… Our Elected Dictator…

    • Christopher Recinos

      No. I’m sure that the Democrats will be holding their position in the executive branch for the foreseeable future and that whatever republican is nominated will not be winning because they are, like you, to stupid to realize that in order to win a presidential election they need to get over themselves along with all of their voters and start thinking about the country as a whole. This article is poorly written with an obvious inclination towards the failed republican candidate. Republicans have the right basic goal but lack the ability to execute because of their poor ability to compromise.

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    Where’s the Beef, in Republican candidates, in 2015?

    What type of Republican Leader do you want in 2015?

    As we look at elections coming up quickly in 2015, as well as the very important 2016 election cycle, what type of “Republican” leaders do you want to shape the future of your county and country?

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services Sentences Baby To Death ON 9/11/2015

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.

    A baby has been sentenced to death and will be executed on Friday, September 11, 2015 and Arkansas Department of HUMAN SERVICES (DHS) – Division of Children and Family Services- Central Office will facilitate the delivery of the baby’s 10-year-old to the abortion clinic.

    On August 29, 2015 20-year-old Justin Smith was arrested and charged with three counts of rape and one count of endangering the welfare of a minor. His “alleged” victim is a 10-year-old.
