Considering that the current GOP frontrunners are moderate, big government squishes, it’s time we conservatarians start thinking outside the box. Although I’m not big on social conservatism (don’t get me wrong, I loathe progressivism), I’d be willing to give such candidates as Bachmann, Santorum, and Perry another look if one did a number of things:
1. Concentrate on the economy first. Blast Obama’s horrible record. Say what he or she would do to fix unemployment.
2. Come out stronger against the environmentalist scam. Say that he wants to eliminate EPA. Come out for easing regulations that limit energy exploration and usage.
3. Reiterate that he wants Obamacare gone. Not repeal and replace – trash. Then explain how he wants common-sense, American solutions: Such as capping lottery malpractice lawsuits, opening up cross-state insurance purchasing (this is the actual reason for the Commerce Clause), and giving states more control over any state healthcare expenditures, while encouraging the financing of clinics and preventative medicine for the poor.
4. Explain how illegal immigration is a threat to the national budget, the integrity of our elections, and the American culture of individual freedom. Target businesses that hire illegals.
Any candidate who would do this would be the GOP nominee, and the favorite in a match up against Obama.
