The Scott Brown Solution

I see victory in 2010 as electing ACTUAL fiscal conservatives to office. Some see victory as electing anything with an R after their name.

Scott Brown is the newest "bright star". I see him being touted on Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo etc, as the next best thing to God. But is he? How many people are actually looking at his stance on the issues. While claiming that "anything is better than a Democrat", I beg to differ. A RINO IS A DEMOCRAT.

Just in case you've been living under a rock, Scott Brown is running in a special election against flaming leftard Martha Coakley for the Massachusetts Senate seat that was vacated by Ted Kennedy when he died.

Scott Brown summed up: Likes Israel, doesn't like Iran. States rights on gay marriage. Vague on abortion, mentions government regulation. Pro 2nd amendment, capital punishment and anti-illegal immigration. No on cap and tax. He's a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army National Guard and has worked on many issues dealing with service members. Claims to be a free enterprise advocate.

He makes me a little nervous here, from his own website..."I believe that all Americans deserve health care coverage.....In Massachusetts, I support the 2006 healthcare law that was successful in expanding coverage, but I also recognize that the state must now turn its attention to controlling costs."

So Scott, you were for a program that is now in need of controlling cost? And no Scott, all Americans DON'T deserve health care coverage, it's not a right. It's not in MY copy of the constitution. As for Israel, they've got nukes, we have enough to deal with now, let's leave them to take care of their own.

All in all, the guy seems like a decent candidate and yes he'd kill the Democrat Super Majority, but is he a true conservative? I think he's leaning center on several issues if you look at them. What do you all think? Is Scott Brown the kind of candidate you want in office come November?

Yes? No? Maybe?
