I believe in majority rule. I know some of my culture with me will not be practice here. Obama's rule will create more oppositions in the white majority society. That is human nature. I am one of the minority, it is perfectly OK for me if we have a minority president. But what is that mean to the white majority ? I do not believe either candidate is qualify. But what choice we have is better for the country ?

Breaking News and Opinion on The Huffington Post



Being Barry Goldwater's granddaughter and living in Arizona, one would assume that I would be voting for our state's senator, John McCain. I am still struck by certain 'dyed in the wool' Republicans who are on the fence this election, as it seems like a no-brainer to me.

Myself, along with my siblings and a few cousins, will not be supporting the Republican presidential candidates this year. We believe strongly in what our grandfather stood for: honesty, integrity, and personal freedom, free from political maneuvering and fear tactics. I learned a lot about my grandfather while producing the documentary, Mr. Conservative Goldwater on Goldwater. Our generation of Goldwaters expects government to provide for constitutional protections. We reject the constant intrusion into our personal lives, along with other crucial policy issues of the McCain/Palin ticket.

My grandfather (Paka) would never suggest denying a woman's right to choose. My grandmother co-founded Planned Parenthood in Arizona in the 1930's, a cause my grandfather supported. I'm not sure about how he would feel about marriage rights based on same-sex orientation. I think he would feel that love and respect for ones privacy is what matters most and not the intolerance and poor judgment displayed by McCain over the years. Paka respected our civil liberties and passed on the message that that we should conduct our lives standing up for the basic freedoms we hold so dear.

For a while, there were several candidates who aligned themselves with the Goldwater version of Conservative thought. My grandfather had undying respect for the U.S. Constitution, and an understanding of its true meanings.

There always have been a glimmer of hope that someday, someone would "race through the gate" full steam in Goldwater style. Unfortunately, this hasn't happened, and the Republican brand has been tarnished in a shameless effort to gain votes and appeal to the lowest emotion, fear. Nothing about McCain, except for maybe a uniform, compares to the same ideology of what Goldwater stood for as a politician. The McCain/Palin plan is to appear diverse and inclusive, using women and minorities to push an agenda that makes us all financially vulnerable, fearful, and less safe.

When you see the candidate's in political ads, you can't help but be reminded of the 1964 presidential campaign of Johnson/Goldwater, the 'origin of spin', that twists the truth and obscures what really matters. Nothing about the Republican ticket offers the hope America needs to regain it's standing in the world, that's why we're going to support Barack Obama. I think that Obama has shown his ability and integrity.

After the last eight years, there's a lot of clean up do. Roll up your sleeves, Senators Obama and Biden, and we Goldwaters will roll ours up with you.
Um... WOW

There is a weight of significance to that endorsement that rivals that of General Powell.

Republicans should take note. Neocons should simply hide.

Sarah Palin: disaster or superstar? Some Republicans want her to run in 2012

57 minutes ago

WASHINGTON — Call it Sarah Palin schizophrenia.

To many people, voters and pundits alike, she's a disaster, one of the single worst vice-presidential picks in American history.

To core Republican supporters, there's an alternate Sarah Palin universe where she basks in superstar status and is a strong contender for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012 should John McCain lose on Nov. 4.

"Palin draws large crowds and has energized Reagan Republicans, gun owners, women and people of faith," Grover Norquist, president of the anti-tax lobbying group Americans for Tax Reform, said recently.

"She is an asset and the most consequential VP candidate in a generation."

Others scratch their heads at such assessments, noting even longtime Republicans have turned on Palin, who's currently embroiled in her latest controversies - she's spent US$150,000 of Republican cash on designer clothing since McCain chose her as his running mate in late August, and she's charged the state of Alaska for her children's campaign travelling expenses.

Her addition to the Republican ticket helped convince retired Gen. Colin Powell to swing his support behind Democrat Barack Obama. It was also the tipping point for Ken Adelman, a prominent Republican who once worked for Ronald Reagan. Adelman says he, too, will vote for the Illinois senator.

Independent voters have cited Palin as the reason they're opting for Obama on Nov. 4. And a Wall Street Journal/NBC poll conducted earlier this week suggested Palin's lack of qualifications to be president is voters' No. 1 concern regarding McCain.

"If the Republican party is to survive the next decade or so as a major competitor for control of national politics in the United States, it will have to be a vastly different Republican party in four years," says Cal Jillson, a political science professor at Southern Methodist University and author of "Pursuing the American Dream: Opportunity and Exclusion Over Four Centuries."

"They will have to go into a major period of reassessment. Perhaps if Sarah Palin emerges as an extraordinarily different person than she is today - in other words she has gone to school and has learned all about foreign and domestic policy and has recreated herself as a knowledgeable figure in the Republican party - then it's a possibility she could mount a successful run."

Others say it doesn't matter that Palin has alienated voters, pundits and moderate Republicans. What's important, they say, is that she is beloved by core Republican supporters due to her right-wing views on a wide range of issues such as same-sex marriage, abortion and immigration.

A Washington Post tracking poll released earlier this week indicated that Republicans and conservatives, for the most part, believe Palin's selection demonstrated the strength of McCain's ability to make sound decisions.

More than seven in 10 Republicans, and just under that number of self-identified "conservatives," said McCain's choice of Palin made them more confident in the kind of decisions he'd make as commander in chief.

"In most presidential primaries, the candidate most in line with the conservative or liberal base of their party winds up winning," wrote the Post's Chris Cillizza, noting that McCain was the rare exception to that rule.

"Palin is clearly of the conservative base in a real and meaningful way; they view her as their first real spokesperson on the national stage in recent memory - perhaps since Ronald Reagan. It's hard to imagine those feelings going away because she has not worn well with either moderate and independent-minded voters (or) the conservative media."

But it's not enough to energize the base, Jillson said Thursday, since the base's core ideals are no longer resonating with Americans who are decisively growing more socially progressive. They're no longer excited by the Reagan-era tenets of social and fiscal conservatism and aggressive foreign policy decisions.

"As they consider Sarah Palin, the Republicans will need to ask themselves if the path to plausibility is to look back to the past at Ronald Reagan or to look forward to the 21st century and create a new party for this era," Jillson said.

"It's really a crossroads for the party, and if they misplay it, they will wander in the wilderness for a decade or two."

Once the post mortem on this campaign is complete, should McCain/Palin lose as is expected, she will be relegated to the history books much like Dan Quayle. Enough of the blame will be laid at her feet and sufficient bad will be associated with her name to keep her on the defensive in any PRIMARY season. She won't be able to hide in a real primary season like she has this past few weeks. Real questions from rivals will eat her alive.
