Teeing it up: A Round at the LINKs (time to regain our focus edition)

It’s official, the primary season  has gone from a discussion of ideas to personal attacks.  It has gotten especially nasty between Gingrich and Romney.  After being bombarded with attack ads in Iowa by a PAC that supports Romney, Gingrich has launched his own series of attacks on Romney and his business practices with Bain Capital.  This is kind of nastiness the left employs against an adversary…personal attacks.  In my opinion these tactics do not serve us well and definitely hurts the advancement of the conservative cause.  I understand there will be disagreement during the primaries, however these disagreements should focus on ideas. Not personal attacks.  These types of personal attacks lead to deep division within the conservative movement.  When they overflow onto supporters of a particular candidate it creates a toxic political environment for everyone.

Many in the conservative blogosphere have experienced this first-hand from Ron Paul supporters.  These Paul supporters who I believe are in the minority have been at times downright nasty with their hateful rhetoric aimed at conservatives who support anyone but Paul.  This has led to a volley of insults fired back at those who support Paul by conservatives.  Colorful terms like “Paulites” and “Paultards” have become common verbiage in conservative circles.  I know stick and stones, however somewhere along the line we’ve lost sight of the fact that we agree on 80 percent of the issues.  Somehow the debate over ideas has morphed into petty name calling and this must stop.  Our goal is to defeat Obama, to balance the budget, to repeal Obamacare, and to reestablish the constitution as the law of the land.  These are the things we must stay focused on.  These are the ideas we need to be discussing and advancing.  If we lose this election I fear we may lose the America we all love.  We live in exciting times where we have an opportunity to reverse to course the Marxists and socialists have set us on.  I support Ron Paul because of his views on liberty.  I’ve also been one to slam both Gingrich and Romney for being establishment types who will not change a thing in Washington.  Last night I decided to do some research on Mitt Romney and I discovered some interesting facts about him that might prove he’s much more conservative than many of us had previously thought.  The source of this information comes from Club for Growth’s Presidential White Papers.  Please take the time to check it out here>>

Together we will prevail as long as we keep our focus on the issues and on ideas.  To help you along with this, I encourage you to visit the below links.  These are some of the best conservative blogs on the web.  Their outstanding articles are helping advance the conservative agenda.  So tee it up and enjoy another SENTRY JOURNAL round at the LINKs.
