What is in a name?

I’ve been asking myself this over the past few weeks as I’ve enjoyed a barrage of opinions regarding my endorsement of Conservative Independent Phillip Templeton over Republican Michael Corbin.

There have been many who have applauded my choice, thanking me for standing up for my convictions and making a difficult choice.

There have been a few who explain my folly away as a transgression of youth.

And there have been a handful who have been rude and intolerant of anything but their own opinion on the matter.

I have been the recipient of some nasty e-mails, comments, and letters.

I have been kicked out of the Professional Women’s Republican Club.

My picture has been removed from the Louisiana Federation of Republican Women’s Website.

I have been blatantly ignored by those I thought were my friends.

And you know what?

I don’t regret it.

I made a choice, an informed, well thought out choice. I chose to do the right thing over the easy thing. I chose to follow my conscience instead of the crowd.

But I wonder…

What has made the people who antagonize me over this choice forget that Republican is just a name? That it is a person’s convictions, policies,  and actions that make them a Conservative, not the letter (or lack thereof) behind their name on the ballot?

Its like they forgot about the RINOs who got us into the mess of having a Democratic Congress.

There is a reason the TEA Party and other movements have threatened to break up the Republican Party- its because we keep forgetting that being a REAL conservative is more important than being registered a certain way! Its because Republicans get elected and immediately forget to vote like they are Republicans! Until we decide to be CONSERVATIVES before Republicans, there is no hope for our nation.

I’ve often scoffed at people who say that they didn’t leave the Republican Party, but that the Republican Party left them behind- but I am finally starting to understand what they meant.

 

Vote 2010

Two years ago I wrote the following

So I just wanted to remind everyone that the fight for American values is not over, rather it has just begun. We can not give up hope, we must stand together stronger than ever. All that is required for evil to prosper is for good men (and women) to do nothing. So do something! Keep your voice, shares your values, stand up for what is right, no matter how hard it gets.

And you guys did NOT disappoint! Two years later and the Tea Party has blossomed, launching a new generation of conservatives into the public spotlight; Republicans will take over the House by midnight, and might take over the Senate as well! Gubernatorial races are running strong red and things are looking bright indeed for the future of our nation!

But it still isn’t over- YOU MUST GO VOTE!

Hundreds of thousands of brave men and women have died so that you could cast your ballot. So go vote, and PLEASE- vote CONSERVATIVE!!!!

Cedric Glover Involved With Drug Use?

WHOA WHOA WHOA!!! STOP THE PRESSES! NEWEST RELEASE FROM WWW.TRUTHABOUTGLOVER.COM:

Cedric Glover Involved With Drug Use?

Dannye Malone was in a divorce lawsuit with his ex-wife.

During this proceeding a number of interrogatories were submitted to Dannye Malone from his ex-wife’s legal council that required him to give a yes or no answer to his usage or marijuana in their matrimonial domicile with Mayor Cedric Glover and Chief Administrative Officer Dale Sibley.

The answers have been sealed.

On the 2nd page, Interrogatory numbers 29, (C), (D), and (E) are questions asked and the names of Mayor Cedric Glover and Chief Administrative Officer Dale Sibley are mentioned as participants of the consumption, ingestion, and/or smoking of marijuana in the matrimonial domicile (home) of Dannye Malone and Montina Malone. It also alleges that Dale Sibley, Chief Administrative Officer went to Dannye Malone’s house on numerous occasions to pick-up “packages” of marijuana. This implies that top city officials are directly involved in drug trafficking, which is a serious legal offense.

Just more questions Cedric Glover needs to answer. But given Glover’s track record this election, such answers will most likely never be given and he will simply resort to baseless attacks aimed at his opponent in order to distract he electorate from the issue at hand.

Here is the documentation:

wow… all I can say. Would love to hear an answer, but I doubt Glover will say anything- as per usual.
