Time to Choose.

Many conservatives are leery of Speaker Thom Tillis and his run for the Senate. There a host of reasons, ranging from his connections to Richard Morgan, his strong arm tactics in the legislature, and his willingness to let conservative principles get watered down. Tillis is a middle of the road Republican who will probably be another Richard Burr. What that means is that we will have a Senator that we agree with most of the time, but every now and again he'll vote in a way that will make us pull our hair out. Is that what we need? I don't think so. Like Richard Burr and his vote on the Don't ask, don't tell legislation. 
I do not argue the fact that Tillis would be a better deal than Kay Hagan. I do argue that if we are going to replace a liberal, than why not replace them with someone who is conservative. Why replace Hagan, if all we are going to get in her place is an establishment republican who will defend the status quo. What we need in Washington is not moderation or lukewarmness. What we need in this dark hour is a bold choice. Someone who will fight the special interests, cut spending, reduce taxes, and fight for our constitutional rights. Now more than ever, we do not need to settle. At the end of the day we should support the winner of this US Senate Primary, but until that day comes we should look at all of the options. 
One of those options for consideration is a man by the name of Greg Bannon. I will not waste your time with details. You can go to his website at the bottom of this page and read for yourself what kind of man he is. All I am saying is that we should not close our minds to the possibility of considering someone who is outside the establishment. 
Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Jim DeMint are examples of great senators who are outside the political establishment. They turned out good. They were able to win even when the establishment in the GOP and the media had declared they did not stand a chance. Now is the time to research and study. I know it seems like there is a lot of time between now and May 2014, but time flies. We need to find the best conservative candidate and fight as hard as we can. I believe that Greg Bannon could be that person. According to the latest PPP poll, Bannon actually polls better than Tillis against Kay Hagan. Now it is only by one point and Hagan leads by a wide margin, but there is a lot of time. This poll shows that regardless of the choice it will be a uphill battle and we need to be ready. I believe that a conservative like Greg Bannon would fare better than Tillis. I do know that Tillis is not the conservative choice. If you want the status quo and more of the same frustration we have seen out of the establishment GOP than go ahead and support Tillis. If you want a true conservative, than at least research Greg Bannon. Now more than ever we need true conservatives. Now is not the time to settle. Either we can choose a conservative or vote for another RINO like Lindsey Graham, John McCain, and the list goes on. It's up to you.

  1. I don't disagree with your premise that we should research alternatives like Greg Brannon. I've met him and will support his campaign.
    What I do disagree with is your contention that we should support the candidacy of whomever wins the Republican nomination.
    Why should I vote for someone who does not have the Constitution at the core of his or her philosophy?
    Employing the "lesser-of-two-evils" voting strategy produces two results over time:
    The difference between the two choices becomes less and less (think of the difference between Goldwater and Johnson and then compare it to the difference between McCain and Obama), and
    Both choices become more "evil" over time; to wit: in 2012 America was given a choice between a draft-dodging, abortion-supporting, gun-banning, health insurance-mandating progressive...and Barack Hussein Obama.

  2. I understand your point. Not voting is your right, while I hardly think that not voting is the way to go about it. I did not vote for John McCain in the primary or Romney. I did vote for a more conservative choice. When my choice did not win, I voted for the only choice there was. That is why it is essential for conservatives like you and myself to make sure that the GOP nominates the best choice. Thanks for reading.
