Following Sarah Palin’s announcement, that she would not be running for the presidency in 2012, a whole new set of questions was introduced. Who should I support? Do I have to support a candidate that could win or someone that has good values? How many previous mistakes, by said candidate, should I tolerate? That last question really is the big one for me… Every candidate running has baggage. How much of baggage is too much?
There is not one answer to this question. It depends on your own beliefs and convictions. For example, I will not tolerate a candidate that is not completely pro-life or against Israel. I am very passionate that the candidate I support must have good moral standards. For you, it might be that they must have good economic policy. Don’t settle for less on what is important to you.
Unfortunately, I do believe that we will have tolerate some what with our final choice of the nominee. In my opinion, there is no one to even compare with Sarah Palin. One thing is for sure though… we need to support the GOP nominee, even if we are upset that Sarah Palin isn’t running! If we don’t, President Obama will win, and we will be watching our country go further down the drain. We can not let that happen!
To not vote at all, would be to place your vote for Obama. It is better to tolerate some bad in what we have to choose, or at the least try to change their positions, than 4 more years of our country’s collapse.
