I'm "Going Rogue" as well. It is time that I made a few confessions. I'm going to lay it all on the line and see what happens. Maybe I should say I'm going to throw it all against the wall and see what sticks. Either way, I'm going rogue and letting my true feelings show.
My first confession is that I didn't vote for McCain. Don't panic; I can explain it. I voted against Barrack Hussein Obama. My vote was marked "John McCain/Sarah Palin," but it was a vote against socialism and the other junk BamBam and his blind sheep was spewing. I preferred someone else - a Matthew 25 Republican who now has his own television show on Fox News. His name is Mike Huckabee.
My second confession is that I'm not a big fan of Sarah Palin. She and I would have a lovely conversation in line at the grocery store. We'd probably exchange phone numbers and email addresses. I'd love to have a cup of coffee with her. I might have her over for dinner. She's a bit too perky for me and would quickly drain my already-low reserve of energy. That's just me. Don't get me wrong; Sarah Palin has her place in Conservative Republican politics. I don't know what that place is; I'm still trying to figure her out. I'll support her, if she's the candidate in 2012. Read my next confessions and you'll understand why I'm not jumping up and down at that idea.
My third confession is that the first time I ever voted for someone was in the 2008 caucus. I had voted in every election since I was old enough, but never voted FOR someone. I always voted against the other one. I voted for Mike Huckabee in the caucus. WOW! That was a thrill. I even spoke on his behalf before the vote. I couldn't keep quiet about his common sense approach to all things political, fiscal and "governmental."
My fourth confession is that I am an addict. I am addicted to the idea of voting for someone. I've heard other addicts talk about "chasing their first high" and it makes sense to me. (Getting rid of the IRS? Novel idea. When I buy my daughter shoes at Wal-Mart, I'm paying the same tax that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes pays when they shop for their daughter on Rodeo Drive. Anyway...) I'll be chasing that feeling for the rest of my life. That is why I will do all I can to get Mike Huckabee in MY White House in 2012. He touched my heart the way Ronald Reagan did in 1980 and 1984. I wish I had been old enough to vote for him. On the bright side, I helped my parents and grandparents campaign for him.
My fifth confession is I'm scared for our country. Obama and his blind sheep are conning America. They refuse to listen to Americans. They want to push their socialist agenda down our throats and choke our freedom out of us. BamBam is dangerous. His blind sheep make him dangerous. Thank God I have 20/20 vision.
My sixth confession is that I will campaign against every politician that supports Obama. My one voice, combined with others, will be heard. I will make phone calls. I will tweet until my fingers bleed about the BamBam and his lies. I will post on my little blog for as long as I have freedom of speech and freedom of the press. I will email everyone. I will go to tea parties. I will hold my sign and protest peacefully. I'll use every right the Constitution gives me to stop socialism in my country. The same Constitution my Granddad lost his hearing in World War II defending. The same Constitution that will protect my daughter and future grandchildren from tyranny. I will do everything possible to, once again, make America that "shining city on a hill" Ronald Reagan served and loved.
I just went rogue. I spilled my Conservative heart. I told all my dirty little secrets. Well, some of them. Just thought you might want a little insight on what this Conservative Matthew 25 Republican thinks and feels. I hope there are many other Conservatives that will be going rogue soon. Let's stand up and fight, taking our country back from those elected that seek to destroy us, our beliefs, our ideals and our way of life.
