Super "Bad" Tuesday

By now you know the results from yesterday so I will not post them. I can't bring myself to write them. I will put up the delegate count though:

Republican Delegates (1,191 needed to win nomination)

Candidate Delegates

Mike Huckabee 190
John McCain 613
Ron Paul 14
Mitt Romney 269

Total 1,086

Democratic Delegates (2,026 needed to win nomination)

Candidate Delegates

Hillary Clinton 845
John Edwards 26
Mike Gravel 0
Barack Obama 765

Total 1,636

Those were last updated at 6:15 this morning.

McCain has 613 to Romney's 269. This is bad news for Romney, as well as America. Romney could still pull it off I guess, but that is very unlikely.

It will be interesting to see how many of the people that have said they will not vote for McCain will change their tune. I hope none of them do. It is true that McCain will not win without conservatives. What bothers me is how much the conservatives will lose if they support McCain. For the last 12 years the Republican party is slowly but surely moving away from conservatism. Till now they could count on the conservatives complaining about it, but falling back in line by election time. Eventually it will become neccesary for the conservatives to put a foot to these RINO's backside and let them know we will not follow along behind waiting on whatever scraps they decide to dish out to us. The Republican party gained control of Congress because of conservatism. The party lost control of Congress because they moved away from conservatism.

The thought of Clinton or Obama in the White House makes my skin crawl. But the thought of the Republican party becoming the clone to the Democratic party makes my skin crawl twice as bad. For the good of the party and the country, I will not vote for McCain!

I'm with ya! I'll just innie minnie minie moe for a "other" party candidate.

Have you read Obama's stance on gun control? Here is part of it.

Ban the sale or transfer of all forms of semi-automatic weapons.
Increase state restrictions on the purchase and possession of firearms.
Require manufacturers to provide child-safety locks with firearms.

Not only does he want rid us of "assault rifles", he says all semi-auto's.

WTF does "Increase state restrictions" even mean. I can't stand the way these people use wordings that are so general. If your going to throw something like that out there you can at least explain yourself...but no.

Shit meet Fan!!!
