SUPER TUESDAY: TOP OF THE HEAP OR BOTTOM OF THE BARREL?

Prominent conservatives are joining an increasing number of Americans nationwide crying ‘foul’ on GOP ‘front-runner’ and heir apparent to the presidential Republican nomination, John McCain.

"The thought of his being president sends a cold chill down my spine," Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) told the Boston Globe. "He is erratic. He is hotheaded. He loses his temper and he worries me."

Echoing the sentiment of so-called “values voters,” Family Research Council president Tony Perkins said:

Our allegiance is not to a political party but to a cause. We are not bound to vote for a candidate simply because he or she is the choice of a particular party… We are not… in this process to win at the expense of our beliefs… Vote your values! (www.frcaction.org).

Despite the tough rhetoric now, can we actually depend on advocacy groups like the FRC to see the folly of holding forth the banner of the GOP when push comes to shove in November?

Sen. John McCain’s voting record is completely at odds with the “values” of the genuine conservative voter. Elected officials like McCain, along with the leadership of the Republican Party long ago abandoned their base.

McCain is dead wrong on every single issue of importance to constitutionalists; his alliance with the left makes him indistinguishable from the Democrats running for president. He never met a liberal Democrat with a bad piece of legislation that he didn’t join forces with. Just look at what McCain’s hook-ups brought us: The McCain-Feingold assault on free speech and the McCain- Kennedy amnesty free-for-all for starters. Voters who want immigration reform after eight years of frustration are being offered a pro-amnesty Democrat and a pro-amnesty Republican. That’s hardly a choice.

How many voters know John McCain considered changing parties at one point and becoming a Democrat? It clearly would not have made any difference; McCain has sold out his principles and his party so often it’s hard to keep track. Can conservative voters forgive the deal he made with Democrats over judicial nominations?

Hopefully, Americans won’t let Senator McCain’s POW experience overshadow his political record. As columnist Thomas Sowell points out: “Benedict Arnold was a war hero but that did not exempt him from condemnation for his later betrayal. Being a war hero is not a lifetime get-out-of-jail-free card. And becoming President of the United States is not a matter of rewarding an individual for past services.” Voters have a 100% constitutionally- sound candidate in Congressman Ron Paul. Barring the option of voting for him, voters must consider the third party option in November.
