NKRTL and Kentucky politics
So life on the political front is not well. Being involved in the dirty side of politics is not interesting or fun. I have been corresponding with the people at Northern Kentucky Right to Life which has been frustrating and worthless. Here's the bottom line; if you are going to give candidates questionnaires to fill out, make sure they are sort of being honest. When someone says they will not spend public money on abortion related issues, how is it okay if they support the use of Plan B? So it's okay as long as tax payer money is not funding it? That makes a candidate pro life now? Rand Paul says he "probably" would have voted for a partial birth abortion ban, that the morning after pill works most of the time and he has outrageous views on the fourteenth amendment. But he still got a pass from NKRTL. Now my question is, why not endorse the democratic candidate, conservative catholic, Buckmaster? He received a 100% on the questionnaire. Don't endorse a republican. They had to publish an explanation that said "Grayson made allegations". Um, it's more than that. These are Rand Paul's words. These aren't allegations, these are actual quotes. It's as if they wanted to endorse Rand Paul and looked for a way to make that happen.
So that is why I am growing tired of politics. Endorsements, pay offs, riding on coattails, it is all a dangerous game. I am more a conservative now than I ever was before. I have seen how everyone wants to ride the tea party and use it for their own benefit. It should belong to the people. Just as the constitution, the government and our freedoms belong to us, we the people. They are not yours to take, they are God-given. Jim Bunning, another huge let down. Sarah Palin, stay out of our state. I don't want to have to live with your mistake. Stop letting the libertarians of the nation in the conservative movement, they are not conservative. They know the time is ripe to waltz in and play the game and dig in to do what they want. They are opportunists. Kentucky is not a libertarian state, why do you think the man had to switch affiliations before running? Exactly how much more deceitful do you have to get? He supported his father and his father's politics his whole life now -poof- he's a republican AND conservative? Kentucky....are you awake? Did you drink the koolaid? Yes, I'm miffed and fed up. Bunning, you are either unhinged or drank some libertarian koolaid. He is the opposite of everything you have stood for. Meh. I'm done.
