Chuck Baldwin on Arnold
Schwarzenegger Candidacy Demonstrates The Republican Party's
Lack of Commitment To Conservatism
By Chuck Baldwin
October 3, 2003
If there is anyone left who truly believes the Republican Party is
committed to genuine conservative principles, the candidacy of
bodybuilder/actor Arnold Schwarzenegger to be California's next
governor should be enough to set the record straight.
Despite Schwarzenegger's extreme liberal views, he has won
praise from Republicans nationwide. On virtually every issue
worth noting, Schwarzenegger comes down on the left side of the
Schwarzenegger is pro-abortion, pro-homosexual rights, pro-gun
control, pro-green, and pro-illegal immigration. He even said that
Clinton's impeachment made him "ashamed" to call himself a
Furthermore, Schwarzenegger's immoral escapades make even
Bill Clinton look unsoiled. He once bragged in an Oui magazine
interview about participating in sex orgies, not to mention his
repeated admissions of drug use.
In spite of his personal and philosophical discrepancies,
Schwarzenegger has received accolades from notable
conservatives such as Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, and Pat
Robertson, not to mention practically the entire national
Writing for The New York Times, Frank Rich correctly observed,
"It is hilarious to watch conservatives, the same conservatives who
often decry phony Hollywood liberals and their followers, betray
their own inviolate principles to bask in Arnold's hulking movie-
star aura so that they might possibly gain a nominal Republican
victory in the bargain."
By supporting a liberal such as Arnold Schwarzenegger,
Republicans demonstrate that they have no real loyalty to
conservative principles. Beyond that, by supporting
Schwarzenegger, they have turned their backs on a true
conservative gubernatorial candidate, Tom McClintock.
However, people who are paying attention know that this is the
rule, not the exception, for the Republican Party. In race after race,
Republican heavyweights will throw their support behind a liberal
candidate and will starve out a conservative candidate. This is not
an accident or a coincidence. It is the party's plan A. The
Republican Party no more desires conservatives in political office
than the Democratic Party does, and people who think otherwise
are only deceiving themselves.
At some point, conservatives must awaken to the reality that they
do not have a political party in Washington, D.C., that represents
them. They must, at some point, be willing to abandon the
Republican Party and unite around a party and a candidate that will
courageously and consistently promote their principles. Can I get a
second for Judge Roy Moore and the Constitution Party?

“The Matrix is a system, Neo, and that system is our enemy. When you are inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters, the very minds we are trying to save. Until we do, these people are part of that system and that makes them our enemies. You have to understand that most of these people are not ready to be unplugged and many are so hopelessly dependent on the system, they’ll fight to protect it. “The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.”
- Morpheus, in the movie, “The Matrix”

The truth of this commentary was very evident from the beginning without having to think very much. It seems that everyone saw a maucho actor and then related that he must be of the same stock as our last actor politician and super patriot, the Gipper.
Unfortunately the public schools today do not teack anyone how to independently think and stand on their own two feet, therefore we end up with an electorate that will believe anything. Why do you think that California is in this mess to begin with?????????
