CPAC 2008: Help, Politics in America is in Trouble!

Help! My beloved conservative values of a free-market, small government, and a strong national defense are under siege. CPAC 2008 has illustrated that the only choices for President are a Christian Values bumpkin and John "Let's Bomb the Piss Out of Iran" McCain. Both presidential candidates want to step up the government spending, both have no plans on a responsible exit strategy for Iraq, and both shamelessly cater to the Moral Values Crusader cadre who think teaching abstinence in public school is more important than fighting terrorism or the economy. What's an American to do....

I requested pictures from Ms. Nicki over at Liberty Zone of hot young republican babes, but sadly, she fell ill. She was also not happy with the future of conservatism. Neither was Eric Dondero over at Libertarian Republican, which mentioned that the Libertarian party actually sent the GOP a funeral wreath. Predictably, John McCain got booed, and Reason discussesd young republicans who flipped out because Mitt Romney and his hair dropped out of the race. Ann Coulter got the boot from the main stage (good decision), but she made some crazy speech about "Islamofascists" that no doubt will alienate most of our moderate allies in the Middle East. Mr. Bellavia's interview on Captain's Quarters was interesting, but he isn't running for office.

The conservatives in this country are so divided after 8 years of apologizing and making excuses for the disastrous policies of BushCo, that there is no doubt a spendaholic Democrat is going to win. Hillary and her health care for free agenda is going to turn America into a pathetic socialist state as she attempts to pacify the population. Both Hillary and Obama have heinous plans for an exit strategy from Iraq that leave a lot of questions unanswered. Neither of these candidates have addressed how to fix our busted military either. They just intend to get the votes by selling entitlements and other free shit to the American people. Like Ms. Nicki, I also see the future, and it is terribly bleak. Maybe I can go move to Thailand and open up that nightclub I always wanted to: "Ashtray-a-Go-Gos". See you all in Pattaya Beach!

Also, CPAC-Iraq 2008: "Get your War On!" was a total bust. No one showed up to see my 100- powerpoint slideshow on "The Way Forward" in Iraq. I was very hurt =(. I did watch Fletch w/Chevy Chase though, so it's all good. Times have been tough, but I fear they will get tougher.

Roger that. I have to be honest that I was thinking of the food. But since I'm in mixed compnay, I'll keep my big yap shut!

LT Nixon said...

Er make that wasn't thinkin' about the food.

Nicki said...

Erm, my first thought wasn't food either, but you're under GO1, and I shouldn't be tempting you in that manner. ;-)

This country has weathered some bad presidents before, and it will survive the next four years of whomever. We had a Republicann Pres with a Republican congress and they did nothing for the economy. We switched to a Democratic congress and they sat on their arse too. It may have weakened our country, but we are not crippled. I would say "have faith" in the USA, but that would probably only get a snort.
