Romney and Perry are not conservative, by any means. Just as Bush was never a conservative. All three are/were big-government Democrats pretending to be small-government Republicans. No one who wants to see the size and spending of the federal government reduced could vote for either candidate and not be a hypocrite.
quite correct. the only real conservatives in the republican field are cain, paul, and bachmann. and unfortunately bachmann and paul have little if any chance at winning. of the others, romney is the least liberal in my view, and has the best chance of beating obama. i prefer to see cain winning the nomination, but i could live with romney.

When I first was introduced to Christie by this forum via a you tube vid where he was talking tough to public union members, I thought he was a rising conservative star. He blew it for me when he did not back the House when they insisted on cuts to pay for storm damage relief. He accused them of playing politics, he should have backed them instead. He showed his true colors.
Now that he has backed Romney he as exposed himself as a RINO. Though to be honest he is doing a good job in NJ and I hope he always stays there.

I consider Michele Bachmann, Ron Paul, Herman Cain, and Newt Gingrich to be true small-government, fiscally-responsible conservatives. Unfortunately, Michelle Bachmann, Ron Paul, and Newt Gingrich have no executive experience. I think our current President makes it very obvious why leadership skills are so important for a President. So that leaves only Herman Cain.

I cannot, in good conscience, vote for Romney, Perry, Johnson, or Roemer, but I can vote for Cain. I do not like his "999 plan", but I know it will never be implemented so that will not deter me from voting for him.

I am still checking out other candidates in other political parties, but as far as the GOP is concerned, Cain looks the best.
