Lets get something straight: it is so important to remove Barack Obama from power next election that I will vote for a ham sandwich if the Republicans nominate one. All the consternation over who is the most conservative candidate is a waste of time this time around IMHO. Normally I agree that is what we should do. But this election is a life changing event for us and our children. The difference is what kind of America we leave to them- one that is free and prosperous or one that is impoverished and socialist. We need to nominate the person who can most likely defeat Obama. Period.
