Romney is less a conservative than John McCain. Both are big government, Republican insiders, who will do anything to maintain the status quo.
Do you honestly think someone can have an epiphany and TOTALLY reverse their CORE BELIEFS on Abortion; Defense of Marriage Act; believing that Socialism as a State Level is different from Socialism at the Federal level; Carbon Dioxide caused Global Warming; TARP; Auto Bailout; and on and on? If you do, you probably thought McCain was a conservative as well.
Or, are you like me who said that I’ll vote for McCain once, but never again will I subvert my principles for another RINO?
You got excited about the 2010 Elections where we took back the house and would have taken back the Senate if it were not for all of the Washington Insiders bashing Sharon Angle, Christine O’Donnell and others. Then, we watched as Boehner and McConnell once again entrenched the old Republican Insider machine and crushed the 100 or so Tea Party representatives that we voted into office. Many of us blamed those Tea Party representatives for their failures to adhere to core conservative principles when it was the success of the Republican insiders that was really the culprit.
Those same Republican Insiders are out in force now pushing Romney down your throat. They made sure they got rid of very electable conservatives like Bachman, Cain and Perry early on so to pave the way for Romney. Santorum is the only true conservative left in this race but unfortunately he lacks the charisma and the $$$ to knock off either Romney or Newt. Palin sacrificed enough at the hands of the Republican Elite in 2008 and beyond so you can’t blame her for sitting this one out.
So what do we do? We don’t have the time, money or the mechanism to start a viable 3rd party that could ensure the defeat of Obama. So, do we have to hold our collective noses again and vote for Romney or Newt if they are the candidate?
- But we need to make sure the Tea Party organizations coalesce and start building a solid coalition that can be an outright competitor to the Republican Insiders even at the presidential level.
- We also need to take back the Senate and replace RINO Representatives with Conservatives.
- We need to get Bachman back in the House and support her ascension to the Speaker’s position.
- Rand Paul or Marco Rubio need to replace Boehner as the Senate Majority Leader. Rubio will probably be tapped by Romney or Newt as a VP or cabinet choice.
I still hope that somehow Santorum sticks it out if for no other reason than to keep the contrast between Romney or Newt and conservatism. In my wildest dream Santorum would be the Republican candidate and beat Obama in a landslide. I have talked to countless people who say that they prefer Santorum but don’t think he can win. Then they say, that is why I am voting for Romney or Newt. That is about as logical as Mitt Romney’s global warming logic…
“I don’t speak for the scientific community, of course. But I believe the world is getting warmer. I can’t prove that, but I believe based on what I read that the world is getting warmer. And number two, I believe that humans contribute to that. I don’t know how much our contribution is to that, because I know there have been periods of greater heat and warmth in the past, but I believe that we contribute to that.”
So, forget about whether the media thinks that Santorum is capable of being elected President. Vote for Santorum in the Primary then we can help him win the Presidency. Don’t follow Romney’s flawed global warming logic when selecting a candidate. If you are a conservative, then Santorum is your candidate. If you think that a moderate Republican is OK, then vote for Newt. If you think that a Liberal is OK as the Republican Candidate, then vote for Romney.
Just remember what Albert Einstein said:
“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
Nominating a RINO and expecting to move this country back to its Constitutional Roots is the Epitome of Insanity.
