Conservative Voters, It’s Time to Give In to Your Inner Rebel

Posted by Thunder Pig on April 3, 2007

I think it is high time the conservatives in the Republican party stood up, speak with a loud and clear voice for conservatism.

We need to face off against those in our party who want to be thought of as ‘nice guys’ by the Legacy Media, and the Far Left. We need to tell our leadership that we want people who will induce seizures and foaming at the mouth by the Far Left.

Here is an excerpt from an article at The Politico:

In life, there are times to make a safe choice. Should you go to the gym in the morning or pour yourself a bowl of Miller Lite Cheerios? Should you take the car rental insurance or chance it? Decisions, decisions.

Similarly tough choices inevitably seep into our politics. For Republican voters, it has been: Should you vote for Ross Perot or Pat Buchanan, or go with the Republican standard-bearer? (You probably made the “adult” decision, sucked it up and punched your ticket for George H.W. Bush and Bob Dole, even if they were squishy Republicans who were dull as can be.)

For 2008, the safe thing means backing one of the “big three” Republicans, Sen. John McCain (Ariz.), former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney or former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Here’s the problem with always doing the safe thing: Voting is supposed to be a bit rebellious. There are times to throw caution to the wind and go for what you really want. (This often happens after a few drinks.) Depending on your lifestyle, that might include buying a motorcycle, following the Grateful Dead, getting a tattoo or just ordering another helping of that sinfully rich chocolate cake.

This brings me to Newt Gingrich. The former House speaker from Georgia might be the only Republican presidential candidate, declared or otherwise, who has the potential to be romantic. Other people give speeches; when Newt speaks, the words have music. He’s poetic. He’s quixotic. He’s … dangerous.
