Aren’t all Conservatives Republican?

I have been asked many times what I am politically – Republican or Democrat. As we all know, there are many party affiliations, but there are really only two main parties. Most people get these terms confused with Conservative or Liberal.

I really don’t consider myself a Republican per se, I’m a Conservative. You may ask, how is this possible? Conservatism is a philosophy, Republican is a party affiliation. I generally vote for the Republican candidate because they usually match my views much more than the Democratic candidates. Really, my actual views are a mix between Republican and Libertarian. Maybe I should start my own party, call it Repulitarian or Conservatarian.

So my real point in bringing this up is that I’m very discouraged by the candidates running for President who are still in the race. I was a big supporter of Fred Thompson before he dropped out. He lacked the executive experience that Romney and Huckabee had as Governors, but I felt that he was really the clear Conservative choice that wouldn’t take any crap from anyone.
The current front runner is not a conservative voice, but a moderate RINO (Republican in Name Only).

I would really like the so-called conservative candidates to start reflecting the views held by their chosen party instead of the citizens in a few politically insignificant states that just happen to have early primaries (Iowa and New Hampshire). I have nothing against people in those states, I just believe we’re catering to the lowest common demonator.

Of course, that’s just my opinion.

  1. With all the politics, figured rob would have more to rant about. The Romney move, the lack of good candidates, the childish debates. The idiocracy, antiquity, and decay of our election process/political system. Just glad Bush sees the need to make up for all his mistakes and give us all some cash, sure it will overstimulate the economy and fix all our nations problems 😉

  2. ???? OK…..

    This comment seems to come out of the backside. Not sure what it all has to do with the main topic, but I suppose that shouldn’t stop irrelevent comments.
