Here is an abbreviated list of political candidates which I am supporting this year (2010), with explanations:
CALIFORNIA: Meg Whitman (R) vs. Jerry Brown (D)
Preferred Candidate: Jerry Brown (D) (a.k.a. "Governor Moonbeam")
Meg Whitman is a disgrace on any and all of the social issues. She believes that abortion is a "right" and that taxpayers should fund it, regardless of whether or not they believe it is murder, to provide for "equal access" to the crime. Meg is also a strong proponent of gay adoption and gay "rights". I even have doubts that Meg Whitman is a so-called "fiscal conservative".
I'm quite sure "Governor Moonbeam" believes the same things, but the last thing Sacremento needs is yet another liberal RINO in the Governor's mansion! It's best to put in the devil we know than to put in the devil we don't know. Therfore, I say bring back "Governor Moonbeam" for now, so we can get either Tom McClintock or Darrel Issa in the Governor's mansion in 2014.
CALIFORNIA: Carly Fiorina vs Barbara Boxer
Preferred Candidate: Carly Fiorina (WITH RESERVATION)
I'm very skeptical of Carly Fiorina on the social issues. In all fairness, however, she has the endorsements of the National Right to Life, the California Pro-Life Council and the Susan B. Anthony List. She also claims to support traditional marriage, and I have not yet heard her support gay civil unions/adoption. She does have Senator Rick Santorum's support, and I heard her interview with Rick via YouTube; where she was unapologetically pro-life and conservative on other social issues, as well.
I'm thinking that maybe Fiorina's battle with breast cancer has caused her to see life in a different way. But I can't be 100% sure of that. But let's face it, Carly Fiorina seems like a far better prospect for the US Senate, than that idiot Barbara Boxer. So, for now, I'm supporting Carly Fiorina, WITH RESERVATION.
ARIZONA: John McCain vs. J.D Hayworth
Preferred Candidate: J.D. Hayworth
I'm really getting sick and tired of John McCain! I know he's pro-life, but that amnesty for illegals BS really drives me up a wall! And NOW, McCain's own wife, Cindy, and his daughter Meghan are BOTH involved in promoting the gay agenda. WTF??
J.D. Hayworth is a REAL conservative, and I think it's time to elect a REAL conservative Senator from Arizona. McCain needs to retire.
SOUTH CAROLINA: Nikki Haley vs. Vincent Sheheen (assuming Haley runoff victory)
Preferred Candidate: Nikki Haley
Nikki Haley is supported by South Carolina Citizens for Life, and she is also a Tea Party favorite.
Any comments and/or questions are welcome.
