Caruba's Corner

Terrifying the Republican Establishment

By Alan Caruba
 

Would you vote for a man who openly says he would repeal ObamaCare….. favors a fair tax and wants to abolish the Internal Revenue Service….opposes Obama’s efforts to offer illegal aliens amnesty and promises to secure the borders…..decries a federal government “that wages an assault on our religious liberty…..wants a federal government that “works to defend the sanctity of human life” and would “uphold the sacrament of marriage”….defends our Second Amendment rights and condemns the effort ban ammunition….who condemns a federal government that seeks to dictate school curriculums and wants to repeal “every word of Common Core….who would stand “unapologetically with the nation of Israel….would do everything he could to ensure that Iran does not acquire a nuclear weapon….says he would do everything he could to defeat radical Islamic terrorism?

I said I would on May 6, 2013 when he was beginning to get attention. Columnist George Will said he was “as good as it gets” when it comes to being a true conservative in Congress.........It has been a long time since a real conservative Republican, Ronald Reagan, was elected President, but it can happen again as serious voters, particularly those who are independents, join with those who find Sen.
