Brad Turner is a columnist for Alan Keyes' Renew America website. In his most recent article Turner expressed his support for another Alan Keyes candidacy for President.
Mr. Turner took the time to answer these questions for the Conservative President 2008.
1. In a recent article you said that you would Alan Keyes to run forPresident, what makes Keyes the best choice for President?
In my opinion Dr. Keyes fills a moral and political void that has been missing since Ronald Reagan's 1980 campaign. Dr. Keyes is not one to compromise on issues that are critical to our country's moral base, as well as fiscal issues that are undermining our future. Dr. Keyes understands the reality,optimism, and truth of the Founding Fathers message, and understands it's relevance is more critical now than ever before.
2. Keyes has failed twice to win the nomination of the Republican Partyand has lost a number of other election, so why do you think he could win now?
As stated above, there is a tremendous void now in the conservativebase of real leadership. There are too many pretenders, and not enoughcontenders. The current selection vying for the GOP nomination are insults to the conservative core of the GOP. D. Keyes fills that void of realleadership, real conservatism and a real plan for action. His conservative message would resonate with millions of voters looking for real leadershipand not thumb in the wind conservatism.
3. What qualifies Keyes to be President?
His record speaks for itself. Not only is Dr. Keyes a brilliant leader, he has a proven track record of results from his time in the Reagan administration as an ambassador, and his work at the United Nations. Dr. Keyes has a plan to move our country ahead by remembering what made this county great. He understands people make America, not government. He understands our rights and freedom come from the Almighty, to those who much is given, much is expected. America has lost some of it's moral compass, and Dr. Keyes embodies a leader the country can be proud of for the next 8 years.
4. You are a member of the Young Republicans of Rutherford County, if Mr.Keyes decides to run on a third party ticket would you support him?
I would support Dr. Keyes 100% in next election if he would run for office. I am first and foremost a conservative who happens to vote Republican. My vote is not automatic and would not be an auto-punch because a candidatehas an R next to their name. They need to represent conservative ideals and be a leader. Dr. Keyes fits that bill better than anyone because he doesn't compromise on the issues that are important.
His time is now.
