The Candidate on a Mission from God

Ahab explains why I don’t like Huckabee either, and can’t vote for him.  If Fred can’t pull a South Carolina win, I will start taking another look at McCain.  Not a perfect choice, but I can’t abide by this statement:

“I have opponents in this race who do not want to change the Constitution,” Huckabee told a Michigan audience on Monday. “But I believe it’s a lot easier to change the Constitution than it would be to change the word of the living god. And that’s what we need to do — to amend the Constitution so it’s in God’s standards rather than try to change God’s standards so it lines up with some contemporary view.”

Thomas Jefferson would be rolling over in his grave.  Christian political activists are beginning to become as big a force for reducing liberty as the left was in the 20th century, and it’s becoming increasingly difficult for people like to me to abide by being in coalition with them.  I agree with Ian Argent in the comments, who said:

I do believe, though, that we are on the cusp of a major realignment of the political parties – with parts of each coalition bolting their current party for the opposition. But it may take the Baby Boomers becoming inactive in politics first. And while they are, look out…

I think so too, but I think this realignment is going to be dangerous to gun owners.  People like me won’t be in a God and Guns coalition, but nor can I vote for elitist progressive weasels like this.  I suspect a number of other gun owners are in the same position.  Many of us are Christian, but we aren’t going to be happy with folks who want to monkey with the Republic because they think it doesn’t please God.  It’s not meant to please God, it’s meant to preserve liberty and limit government power.  It’s a good thing most of these people are OK with me keeping my guns, because if they get real power, I might need them.

    CHANCHING THE CONSTITUTION IS GREAT IN THIS CASE
    IT WOULD BE A RIGHTEOUS THING TO DO; IT SHOULD ALSO
    INCLUDE TO STOP THE INDOCTRINATION OF OUR CHILDREN
    IN PORNOGRAPHY, PERVERTED LIVES STYLES, STOPPING
    THE SHEDDING OF INNOCENT BLOOD FROM UNBORN
    CHILDREN. THE RIGHT IS NOW CALLED EVIL AND THE
    EVIL IS CALLED RIGHT. ANY WONDER THE DOLLAR IS ABOUT
    TO BECOME WORTHLESS. CHINA IS ALREADY PURCHASING
    EUROS WITH OUR DOLLARS. THE NATION IS IN DECLINE
    AND WE DON’T EVEN KNOW WHY. CAN WE SURVIVE?

    give me a source for his quote, please. That would disallow me ever voting for him also.

    SHOUTING IS ALWAYS VERY PERSUASIVE WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE SERIOUS ARGUMENTS!

    SA:

    Talk to Ahab… follow the link to his site. That’s where I got the quote from.

    Legilsating morality has never worked out very well in the past.
    Being a Christian, my view is this- a person should follow Jesus’ teachings because it is RIGHT, not because it is LAW. To do so robs the Gospel of its message and power, making Christ’s death meaningless.

    I’m in agreement with you about Fred being the clear #1 choice. I’ve also looked hard at McCain as a number 2, but there is a lot that he’s done that I have a hard time reconciling. Included in that is campaign finance reform incumbent protection act, which seems to be a willful disregard for the 1st amendment’s “Congress shall make no law. About the only major issue that I agree with McCain on is limiting the size of the federal budget.

    That said, I’m having a hard time finding any of the R’s (Fred excluded) who I don’t have major issues with. But this won’t push me to the D’s as Richardson has already dropped out, and I can’t support candidates who are openly socialist.

    With PA late April primary, it probably won’t matter who my #2 is, but if there is a chance that it will.

    That’s a lot of crap. We have a lot of top al-quaeda people in jail in Iraq.
