Many of you who have read my posts through the years know that I'm a republican, nothing new about that. With that said, I am not in favor of Jeb Bush becoming our next President. The Bush family has a record of talking conservative and ruling somewhere center left. Examples of both former Bush Presidents:
George H. W. Bush once said "read my lips no new taxes" and then within two years of being elected raised taxes. I felt a great amount of betrayal at that point.
George W. Bush and his "no child left behind" was nothing more than government interfering with what I believe should be left to the county's and states to handle. Granted he did lower taxes and appointed two conservative judges...hold on Roberts was the one who allowed Obamacare to go through so he only gets partial credit for the judges.
Anyway...the way Jeb is talking he'd be one more centrist that talks the talk but when it comes time to get moving doesn't walk the walk.
I think the country would be far better off with someone like Marco Rubio or John Kasich.
Don't get me wrong should Jeb be the nominee I will not only vote for him but I will donate money and work for him as well. What many of you seem to forget is that a candidate that you agree with only 25% of the time is better than a candidate that you disagree with almost 100% of the time.
Stop being purists its rare that you will get the ideal candidate of your choice.
Those who stayed home rather than vote for Romney (who they speculated was not much better than Obama) helped Obama get elected. And every time a democrat wins we get more left wingnut judges and a myriad of other things that harm the country. Like Obama not signing the Keystone pipeline legislation which any republican future President, even Bush and Christie would certainly go along with.
So, put your black and white glasses down and understand that there is middle ground. While we may not get our ideal candidate staying home on election day will only allow democrats another four years to do the exact opposite of what the country needs. And I wonder, can we even survive another eight years of runaway liberalism?
