Why Not Alan Keyes

Is it just me, or do you also have a feeling of impending doom when thinking about the upcoming 2008 presidential election? On one hand, we have Hillary Clinton, who I believe would eat her young for self preservation and a chance to gain the white house in 2008...then we have Obama who, in all honesty, scares the crap out of me. If you look at some of his initiatives and plans for the country if he were to become president, it is safe to say that he is the biggest national security threat facing this country. He has great oratory skills...he is able to win people over and captivate them with his rhetoric and enthusiam...well...I can think of one other person in history who had the oratory skills that Obama has, and that was Hitler. We all know what kind of legacy he left in this world. Finally, that leaves us with John McCain...come on folks, face it, it is a one horse race for the Republican nominee. I have a better chance of being elected Pope at the next conclave than Huckabee has to being selected as the Republican nominee...which wouldn't be a good thing anyway. Huckabee is a lousy candidate...and is not a conservative in the slightest shape or form. And then there was one...John McCain. I abhor the thought of him getting the Republican nomination and possibly becoming president....don't get me wrong, I would rather get gut shot and die a slow death before seeing Hillary or Obama become president, however, the alternative McCain isn't an easier pill to swallow by any means. I could spend all day discussing why McCain is a lousy candidate and should not be the nominee, but then I would just be regurgitating stuff we already know and have said dozens of times. No, no...I won't do all of that. I am writing this post to make a suggestion..."Why not Alan Keyes"?

Think about it...why not Alan Keyes? The following is a list of things Dr. Keyes is for or against:

Checklist of Alan Keyes' Views
For
Strengthening the moral foundations of America's families and communities.
Protecting the life of the unborn.
Returning government to its proper role under the Constitution and Declaration of Independence.
School choice that respects the authority of parents in the education of their children.
Free exercise of religion in public and private life.
Second Amendment rights.
Replacing the income tax with a national sales tax.
Privatizing social security.
Eliminating disincentives to competitive free enterprise.
Health-care reform based on consumer choice.
Low medication costs through free-market competition.
Reversing trade policies that hurt American jobs.
Strengthening national security.
Preserving national sovereignty in world affairs.
Against
Abortion and euthanasia.
The homosexual rights agenda, including same-sex marriage.
Racial quotas.
Government-sponsored health care.
Tax-supported welfare.
The tyranny of judicial activism.
Expanded involvement in the U.N.
Detrimental trade agreements like GATT/WTO.
Dr. Alan Keyes is a solid candidate that is in touch with the non-negotiables a Catholic must consider when voting for a candidate for public office. He is a fellow Catholic...and one of few Catholic politicians who's public views and platform are in complete union with The Holy See. He is a member of the Knights of Columbus, and he is staunchly pro-life. He is a magnificent man of great intellect, character, integrity, and vision. He is a fellow Catholic, and he is not afraid to stand up for what is right. He is the right choice in 2008, and he deserves our support. God Bless you all.

Why not, indeed? I "discovered" Alan in the 2000 election and have supported him ever since! I was able to vote for him in the California primary this year. His candidacy allowed me to vote my conscience and voice my displeasure at our current administration as well.

Alan Keyes is the only candidate, in my opinion, who can win this election against Obama or Hillary, if he were ever given a chance to speak.
