Republican Motto – Let’s Beat Ourselves

I will admit to being a conservative before I am a Republican. There are Republicans that I simply cannot support because of their liberal positions on various issues. Let me provide you with an example: Scott Brown (R-MA). Scott Brown was the “tea party” candidate of Massachusetts and he was one of the most liberal Republican votes during his time in the Senate. I was happy to see him win in Massachusetts, but I could never cast a vote for him myself… he’s just too liberal.

I get emails fairly often telling me that I am what is wrong with the Republican Party. I am too conservative, too rigid, and too harsh on members of my own party. Supporters of John McCain (R-AZ) seem to be the most offended as they feel I am personally attacking the man. I would say this clearly to anyone who asks: I never want to personally attack anyone whether Republican or Democrat (unless they have personal moral failings which must be addressed)… I think John McCain is a hero and has tried to serve his country to the best of his ability.

However, I think John McCain is too liberal on fiscal issues, too ready to cast aside our rights when it comes to fighting terrorism, and too much of a Hawk on foreign policy. I disagree with him… a lot. Syria is showing my divide with his group (Lindsey Graham, Richard Burr, and my Senators Johnny Isakson, and Saxby Chambliss).
