I received my most recent copy of TIME magazine and absolutely loved this article. John McCain has undoubtedly left the reservation a number of times-campaign finance reform, condemning torture methods during the Bush years, as well as being an environmental advocate until he got amnesia on the subject during the presidential campaign. What is intriguing is that he may face former congressman J.D. Hayworth who sees an opportunity to unseat McCain and give a more strident conservative voice to the people of Arizona. The debate in Arizona is one that is playing out elsewhere too. Who will be the nominee? Who should be the nominee? Thse and other questions have been raging for months now. While there is more focus on protests and coming up with an anti-Obama agenda, a set of ideas or a candidate who is the Moses who wil lead us out of the desert has yet to appear.

Questions for debate

1.)What direction should the GOP head towards and why?

2.)What direction would do the GOP most harm and why?

3.)Would you support a Hayworth candidacy? Why or why not?

I didn't vote because my selection wasn't there.

I don't think the republicans need to move anywhere. The problem is, they have no principles. There is no place for them to move to if they are not standing anywhere.

They will not hold a republican to at least the same standard they would hold a democrat. Since I think the republican party is a better party for many, many reasons, I would hope they would hold themselves to a higher standard. But that is way too much to ask for.

The uncontrolled spending, bloated government, outed CIA agents, torture, and nation building is a result of principles - not policy. Until they can prove themselves to be a superior party - as opposed to behaving poorly because democrats do - nobody really has any use for them.

I know I sure don't.
