    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
    page.

    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
    Republican.

    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
    Republican hierarchy.

    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 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?????????
