I want common-sense conservatism.
I want a Republican who understands that cutting federal spending and not raising taxes is key – like McCain. Earmarks as they are should be a thing of the past – if a Senator or Representative wants a project for his state or district, then it should be its own legislation, let it succeed or fail on its merits.
I want a Republican who understands that business AND labor can’t survive without the other and they both are what drive the economy and a standard of living envied and imitated across the world.
I want a Republican that understands that corruption will not be tolerated at all in government.
I want a Republican who understands that a broad tax base with low tax rates is the key to prosperity.
I want a Republican who understands that life is sacrosanct – at the beginning and at the end.
I want a Republican who understands love and Marriage crosses many boundaries – but that it can’t cross the establishment clause.
I want a Republican that will support the Democrats when it is right and oppose them when it is wrong, not sell their vote for dubious advantage.
I want a Republican who will stand for their heartfelt principles, even if I don’t agree.
Heck, I want a Democrat who meets the above!
