First off I would like to wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2011 is gone and we now move forward into 2012 with hope. The Iowa caucus is only a few days away and the candidates are making their final push to win over Iowa voters. This is the first step in the long process to nominate the candidate who will face President Obama in November. There has been a great deal of debate and disagreement in conservative circles as to who is the best candidate to represent the conservative cause. Some of these debates have been very spirited and in my opinion this is a very healthy thing. We’re not always going to agree on all things, but we all agree that we cannot afford another 4 year of President Obama. As long as we keep the big picture of making Obama a one term President on our radar and unite behind whoever wins the nomination we and the nation will be stronger for it. Disagreements should be seen as opportunities to shape the conservative narrative; not as something that divides us.
I admire and respect all of my conservative and libertarian brothers and sisters fighting each day to save the republic. They know that we’re running out of time to turn this thing around. And if you’re a believer in the Mayan calendar (which I am not) 2012 could literally be our last year. So all the more reason to visit the below LINKs to help you gain some perspective on the current state of the political world. So tee it up and enjoy another SENTRY JOURNAL round at the LINKs.
