The 2008 Presidential elections is likely one of the most important in our nations history. We have an ongoing war on terror that we must continue to fight, and Iraq is part of that fight. We will have millions of baby boomers who will be entering retirement during the next presidents term in office, and a congress that is unwilling to reign in spending even on some of the most ludicrous programs and pet projects imaginable.
We need a Presidential Candidate that offers solutions to the problems we face, unfortunately I don’t see those solutions coming from any of the Presidential candidates on either the Democratic or Republican side. Clinton, Obama and the rest of Democrats are offering up one socialist program after another. None of these programs will do anything other than create further dependency on a bigger and more bloated government.
One of the Republican Candidates, either Fred, Rudy, or Romney need to step up to the plate and offer the solutions for Americans to rally behind and vote for. Just like Democrats could never win in 2004 based on the “I am not Bush” campaign, Republicans in 2008 should not expect to win on a “I am not Hillary” campaign.
Republicanpundit over at Hang Right Politics posted yesterday that Democrats have no chance in winning the presidency in 2008. I share his optimism, just not his confidence in that statement.
