What Really Matters

...what really matters in a campaign what are the basic beliefs. What is one's view of the role of the federal government? We believe government ought to be empowering people. We ought to trust people. The other side tends to want to empower government.

We believe taxes ought to be low. They want to raise taxes. We believe we ought to be on the offense against an enemy. That this isn't -- this War on Terror is not just a simple law enforcement matter. It requires all assets, all hands on deck to protect the American people. We believe in the transformative power of freedom. In other words, there's certain principles, and that's what I look for in these candidates.
Yes, we should not forget this. And by the way that was George W. Bush, quoted above in an interview with Chris Wallace on Feb 10.

He's right. We keep bringing up these little differences of opinion on what to do about this or that, and no candidate is going to agree with you on everything. But we should still vote for the candidate who best agrees with our overarching world outlook.
