Will GOP Deterimine GOP Presidential Candidate?
Or will unethical liberal cross-over voters hijack the Republican nomination process?

Non-GOP voters (unaffiliated/independent voters who voted as Republicans) have given Sen. John McCain momentum in his quest for the GOP presidential nomination.

Non-GOP voters (unaffiliated/independent voters who voted as Republicans) have given Sen. John McCain momentum in his quest for the GOP presidential nomination. Exit polls indicate that if only those registered as Republicans prior to voting day had participated in primaries to date, former Gov. Mitt Romney would be the clear frontrunner.

Sen. McCain has been placed in the frontrunner position by liberals masquerading as Republicans. Will McCain, the favorite of the very liberal and ethically-challenged New York Times, sweep major primaries on "Super Tuesday"?

Remaining primaries loom as critical tests for the future of the GOP. Will the GOP remain a party of moderate and conservative Americans who believe government has an obligation to operate within the limited powers granted it by our Constitution? Or will the GOP allow itself to be hijacked by a "Trojan Horse" tactic used in a handful of states to create the illusion of a leading GOP candidate in the person of Sen. McCain? If self-determination means anything, GOP voters need to reject the tactics of the McCain campaign and their allies by voting instead for the only candidate with a highly successful record of executive experience, former Gov. Mitt Romney.

You wouldn't know by the pronouncements of the liberal press, but the leading candidate of true Republican voters at this stage of the campaign is really former Gov. Mitt Romney. Only when liberal cross-over voters posing as Republicans are counted does McCain emerge the frontrunner.

When self-serving politicians (Gov. Crist of Florida, former Mayor Giuliani of New York, Gov. Schwarzenegger of California) endorsed Sen. McCain, they did not do so for his executive experience, his ethical standards, or his honesty for the simple reason that he falls short of good marks on all three tests. They did so for their own self-interest, hoping to land a job in a McCain administration.

McCain has no executive experience. His legislative experience would grade at best a "D-" (many would rate it an "F"). McCain was involved with the Keating Five Scandal. It should come as no surprise, given McCain's involvement in the savings & loan scandal, that McCain would sponsor legislation (McCain-Feingold) for campaign finance "reform" that amounts to just another shell game of "can you find the money?" "Campaign Finance Reform" has come to mean the creation of a new set of campaign finance loopholes to replace a worn out set of campaign finance loopholes. McCain has repeatedly been caught in lies about his chief Republican competitors for the presidential nomination. With a straight face, McCain lies during debates and dissembles during answers to key questions. McCain's claim that he was the "only" person in the debate who supported President Bush's surge campaign was simply a lie. When caught, McCain's response is reminiscent of a former president's difficulty understanding the meaning of "is" when he tried to claim that he didn't mean to exclude others in the debate! So, Sen. McCain, exactly what did you mean by stating that you were the "only" person on the debate stage who supported the surge, if you didn't mean you were the "only" person on the debate stage who supported the surge? We do not need another president who cannot speak plainly and truthfully to the people.

Yes, Sen. John McCain fought in Viet Nam. He was a prisoner of war and survived extremely challenging conditions. These are to his credit and always will be. But his good acts while in service to his country cannot either erase or moderate his more recent sorry performance as a U.S. Senator and candidate for the GOP nomination. A grand-fatherly look and a sterling service record are not the only requirements for the presidency.

We are in serious times and serious times demand a serious leader. We need a leader with an unblemished, strong record of public service, unassailable ethics, and executive experience in both government and private industry. We need someone who has an outstanding record of success working with a legislative body strongly controlled by a different political party. We need a candidate like Mitt Romney, former Governor of Massachusetts.

Republicans should be thankful that a candidate with Romney's qualifications, integrity, and experience has come forward and offered himself to serve as the nation's President. Mitt Romney's capabilities and talents are better suited to the task of serving as President of the United States than any other current candidate of either major party.

If your state hasn't had its primary yet and you find yourself sitting on the McCain bandwagon, please take a moment to think about where you're headed and the devastating effect it will have on the future of the GOP. The McCain bandwagon is heading down a path that will assure minority status for the Republican Party should McCain receive the GOP nomination, thanks to liberal voters trying to sabotage the Republican Party. Join the effort to derail the McCain bandwagon and show unethical liberals that they cannot choose who will be the GOP nominee. By casting a vote for Mitt Romney you will be choosing the best qualified candidate while simultaneously announcing to unethical liberals that the GOP nominee will be determined by Republicans.

Vote for Mitt Romney -- take a stand for executive experience, ethics, and honesty in your presidential nominee.

Biography - Bob Webster

Bob Webster, a 12th-generation descendent of both the Darte family (Connecticut, 1630s) and the Webster family (Massachusetts, 1630s) is a descendant of Daniel Webster's father, Revolutionary War patriot Ebenezer Webster, who served with General Washington. Bob has always had a strong interest in early American history, our Constitution, U.S. politics, and law. Politically he is a constitutional republican with objectivist and libertarian roots. He has faith in the ultimate triumph of truth and reason over deception and emotion. He is a strong believer in our Constitution as written and views the abandonment of constitutional restraint by the regressive Progressive movement as a great danger to our Republic. His favorite novel is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and believes it should be required reading for all high school students so they can appreciate the cost of tolerating the growth of unconstitutional crushingly powerful central government. He strongly believes, as our Constitution enshrines, that the interests of the individual should be held superior to the interests of the state.

A lifelong interest in meteorology and climatology spurred his strong interest in science. Bob earned his degree in Mathematics at Virginia Tech, graduating in 1964.
