The Run for the Presidency

We are in for another 10 long months of campaigning for the office of the president of the United States of America. It makes me tired just thinking about it. However, voters need to persist in learning about the candidates and making the best possible choice for our country.

In my opinion, the Democratic candidates are all bad choices--too liberal, too much in favor of Big Government, too directed toward bleeding us dry with taxes. They favor a poor brand of foreign policy which amounts to shows of weakness instead of the necessary shows of strength.

My personal choice so far is Fred Thompson. He is too grown-up to provide the flash and the sound bites that the MSM prefers, but he is by far the best candidate in the race. An article at Human Events endorses Fred Thompson, but also evaluates the other Republican candidates. The article, titled "HUMAN EVENTS endorses Fred Thompson" is a good read and I recommend it highly. I also recommend visiting the candidates' websites and reading their position papers on various issues. The Fred Thompson site is here and Mitt Romney's is here. You can Google any of the candidates, though, and find their websites.

At Townhall you can read Rich Tucker's article "What's a President For?". I recommend it for some thought-provoking ideas.

In the age of the internet, it isn't hard to find information on the candidates. I don't recommend relying only on the MSM, but do recommend searching around and reading a variety of material for a good perspective. I encourage everyone to vote, but please make it an informed vote!!!
