I have a problem. I consider myself a neo-conservative, generally for fiscal conservatism and moderate on social issues. But I'm sick of Bush.

I don't think the Bush administration (and I don't think you can separate Bush and the people he chose to work with him) has been honest about what's going on in Iraq, and I think the whole War On Terror is a miserable civil-rights-destroying failure.

I supported Bush because he seemed to be supporting my views on smaller government, but there's been an awful lot of spending coming out of this bunch, a lot of it for things I don't agree with. (See aforementioned Iraq and WOT fiascos.)

And, most superficially, I honestly can't stand the way he talks and presents himself. I can't imagine a speech he hasn't butchered.

So… who do I support in the next election? I'd rather not throw away my vote álá Nader, and I can't support Howard Dean's platform, no matter the flutter he's causing in the blogosphere.

So, what to do? If you're a republican or conservative and not sure what to do in the next election, I'd love to hear about it. You can email me or use the comments link below this entry.
