Who my write-in vote will be

Among conservative leaders only Ann Coulter, and now Alan Keys, refuses to fall into lockstep with the Republican Party. They both have disavowed John McCain's candidacy, and rightfully so. His nomination is proof the Republican Party will continue to leave conservatives on the edges of the Party tent, just far enough out to get a little wet when it rains. Somehow, many conservatives still believe they have a home among the very people who are forcing them into the rain.
That's why true conservatives like Ann Coulter are so vital at this time in American history. She is like a little voice whispering in the ear of conservatives everywhere, reminding them it's time to be a conservative first and a Republican second.
Unless the conservative Republican's stand up to take the party back we will be stuck with the failed policies phony conservatives who spend money like liberals, increase the government bureaucracy and leave true conservatives out in the cold.
It's time for conservatives to realize that a McCain presidency is not that far removed from a Hillary Clinton presidency and different from Barack Obama only on the war on terror. That is enough to make McCain a marginally better choice that Obama, although, when elected, Obama will fail to bring troops home as quickly has he promised. Even with his limited experience, he can see that pulling the troops out now will be snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
One of the great pro-gun icons of our times, John Lott Jr. points out another flaw in McCain's conservative pedigree. Not only did McCain agree to another compromise with a Democrat, he personally introduced a provision banning private sales at gun shows. Although he sold it to the American public as a reasonable safety provision, he failed to mention that his bill would give the federal government total control over licensing gun shows, including the ability to deny such a license without giving cause. McCain's proposed legislation would also severely punish gun show promoters if any attendee broke the law at the event.
Such draconian gun laws are more commonly pushed by noted gun grabbers Sens. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and Diane Feinstein, D-Calif., not the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.
There is one final issue that McCain has tried in his bid to convince conservatives that he is still their candidate – judicial nominations. McCain was exposed, however, by his compromise over Bush's conservative nominees as someone who doesn't have the stomach to fight in the Senate for conservative judges. In this case, past performance is most likely a perfect indictor of future performance.
For many conservatives, it's also the final act of treason that forced them to make the difficult, but integrity laden choice, to turn their backs on McCain and the Republicans.
Coulter, alone among conservative commentators, has stayed true to the conservative principles brought to the political forefront by Ronald Reagan, and she alone stands on her values, not as a Republican political partisan, but as a conservative. That leaves only one option for conservatives who want to make a statement to the Republican Party – a write in campaign for Ann Coulter in the 2008 presidential election.
To do otherwise is to betray the conservative ideology, cave to those more concerned with power than principle and further the death of the soul of the Republican Party.

Alan Keyes may be a real option on the ballot this November. Alan Keyes is leaving the Republican Party over all of the above issues. He will be seeking the Constitution Party nomination. Watch for a major Internet feed announcement on tax day, when Dr. Keyes will explain what's wrong with the Republican Party and how conservatives have been shut out of the process. For more information, go to www.alankeyes.com, and sign up to receive event announcements.

After posting the above, my eyes fell upon your Scripture for Today:

Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."
Matthew 19:26 (NIV)

How appropriate.
