Yesterday I outlined my reasons for not supporting a candidate. Today, I would like to start with the top reason for endorsing and supporting a candidate! Again, it's not about gender, race, political affiliation; it's about the right person that will do the right thing, even when no one is watching! In other words, character, principle, and having a moral compass must be the stuff that President's are made of.
Agreeably, we all have various reasons that attracts us to a candidate, however, for me, it must strike at the core, which is principle!
Why does principle matter? What is principle and how do we know which one works and makes sense?
The core principle that defines my political modus operandi is the Conservative model. The conservative principles of timeless truths that are also the foundational compass of this country is this: The belief that we are all created equal, endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights, and these God-given rights leads us to be free individuals in our pursuit of happiness.
This is why principle matters, policy without principle is more bureaucracy to further drown us in failed policies and regulations. Legislation without principle is to act out of political gains, serving special interests; and not the people, who are the heart-beat of our country!
How do we know which principle works and which does not?
First, we examine history, we look at our Constitution, we examine our conscience and the results of what happens when we are faithful to the truth and when we have abandoned our path for self-gaining profitable pastures!
What does this have to do with Governor Sarah Palin? My short answer is, Everything!
