The GOP establishment has pushed for RINO
candidates in the primary election and the left-leaning was willing to play along. Why not? The top choice of the GOP establishment was Mitt Romney
who calls himself a “moderate” Republican. But the Tea Party
movement knows better and anyone else who has done any reasonable amount of research on this millionaire politician and former governor of Massachusetts (Taxachusetts
The Good Old Boy establishment of the GOP was behind Bush because they thought Reagan was “too radical” to win the election; like people say about Ron Paul. They feared the defeat they got when Barry Goldwater
lost. Goldwater wasn’t radical, he just plain told the truth and saw the dangers of overspending and Big Government and the establishment nor the left-controlled media wouldn’t stand for that sort of thing – and believed in constitutional law.
The establishment also had its misgivings about John McCain
, but he didn’t win because the public was aware that he was a RINO. John McCain didn’t make friends when he turned his back on fellow veterans in several pieces of legislation in Congress.
But Reagan persevered and campaigned with ideas of pro-growth, supply-side economy and just plain common sense speeches – promises he kept. He didn’t brag or make stupid speeches that were contrary to his previous policy record – like Mitt Romney. His honesty worked and Reagan swept through the nomination process and the rest is history.
The election results of the real world and the support of primary delegates, and not the painted one by the media, is what helped Reagan win. He went on to serve two terms and even most left-controlled media liked him. He kept a smile when asked stupid questions from reporters and those who tried to trip him up into saying something that could be construed as something else. Romney is going to lose in that respect, and I am not talking about the primary election.
If Romney makes it through this convention with no surprises that someone else is chosen, America’s only hope is that a responsible candidate will run as an independent against both Romney and Obama. Or do Americans have to choose the “lesser evil” again?
is a knowledgeable and eloquent speaker and can withstand any intense debate, answering them with one-liner quirky rhetoric. He was trying to imitate Reagan’s style and even claimed his policies were comparable. But despite Gingrich’s campaign rhetoric of being against the establishment, his past record of sidling up to the political enemies and those who do not stand for individualism and constitutional law showed that he was just as much a RINO as Romney and Rick Santorum
is a maverick, but his major problem is that he is too much of a perfectionist and people fear his overbearing Libertarian
ideology. But he is sincere, honest, and his record is squeaky clean and he stands by his principles. The media and the GOP establishment worked together to make look the fool. His game is not over because he is winning delegates
. He has not given up nor has he lost yet against the fight against the GOP establishment
and the Obama-owned media
The GOP establishment should be worried – Ron Paul
is picking up delegates
is a good idea man
, however; and he was the chief architect for Contract With America
that the American people thought the Republican Party believed enough in to actually follow its fine points. Mitt Romney
refused to sign it. He stated:
In my view, it is not a good idea to go into a contract, like what was organized by the Republican Party in Washington, laying out a whole series of things that they party says ‘these are the things we are going to do’. I think that’s a mistake”.
It was a mistake because Romney doesn’t believe that campaign promises should not be put in writing – it is easy reference for voters with short memories. Politicians like it when voters don’t remember things politicians do in the past when they seek election or reelection.
The Contract With America was what allowed the Republicans to become the majority of Congress in 1994. Romney was one of the few Republicans to lose an election that year.
Today, Mitt Romney is making the same mistake by promising not to take America back to the pro-growth years of Reagan and his Reaganomics. The man just doesn’t have common sense or learns from past mistakes. However, he will change his policies, not for good reasons, but just what he thinks people want to hear. You can see this when he sucks up to the people of every state he wants votes out of; often making plainly that he is not sincere, and sometimes just plain lies.
Reagan cut taxes across the spectrum of tax rates and even attempted to rid the income tax system of the progressive tax rate nonsense, but did not propose a flat tax – maybe it wasn’t thought of yet. History shows us that when taxes are cut, especially for middle class working folks, it promotes jobs, produces higher wages (which edges against cost of living difference), and allows the achievement of personal, individual prosperity.
Collectivism, unlike individualism, does not promote prosperity. It is true that all men(and women) are created equal, but not all CAN be equal when it comes to wages and prosperity – and for a myriad of reasons, like levels of education and work attitudes.
Romney is a millionaire who pays less of a percentage in income taxes than other Americans making less. Who is going to believe him when he stands up and argues against Obama’s neo-Marxist class warfare arguments concerning equal taxation or any related argument? Few. Only people like Ann Coulter, who used to be a conservative crusader, but has involved into a bubble-headed bleach blondewho is a mouthpiece for the GOP establishment. Romney’s experience as a businessman does not necessarily mean he will excel in economic issues, if elected president. It is because he not only represents the GOP country club establishment, but he lives it. One can also see a problem with Romney and economic issues when one examines who his economic advisers are in this election campaign. They are remnants of GW Bush’s failed domestic policies that began the horrible recession we are experiencing know and continues to get worse because of Obama.
I foresee that the GOP establishment and Romney will end up increasing payroll taxes, cutting social security benefits by delaying retirement age even further, as well as changing the Social Security benefit formula to the effect of one-third of what it is now. Of course, this would not solve the problem with the Social Security funding, because they are ignoring why Social Security funds are bankrupt – Congress has used money that was supposed to be a “trust” fund, never used for anything else but Social Security. Remember when Clinton bragged about “surplus” funds? If that were true, those funds should have been put into the Social Security trust fund to replace that which was taken; but instead it was those funds that was included to make it look like there was a budget surplus. Besides, how can any government have a surplus when there is still a national debt? Unfortunately, too many Americans didn’t think of it in that way.
What needs to be done now is change the Social Security accounts into personal accounts rather than increasing the eligible retirement age – each person would determine what age they retire because they would have the choice of using the funds for private investing. Which means they must have enough in that fund in order to retire and live on benefit checks for the rest of their lives. Many will choose to work longer to ensure that they have more in their retirement accounts (which is their funds and can be passed on when they die to beneficiaries); which will mean that their retirement income checks will be bigger and they can live comfortably in their aging years.
All the good ideas of good government and the ideology of Ronald Reagan who was once a Democrat until he saw their progression towards socialism; is too sophisticated and has too much common sense for RINOs like Romney and the establishment that leads him around by a nose ring.
|GOP Establishment Don’t Learn From Mistakes
More Americans want to prosper again and make more decisions without interference from do-gooders in Washington. They are sick of the liberal-sociocrats who think they can live their lives for them. Clinton stated publicly that most Americans do not have the responsibility to manage their Social Security funds – and no one was enraged, nor did the media pick up on that public remark.
Newt Gingrich may have had some kinks along the path of his career, but he would have been a better pick than Mitt Romney and would also have the ammunition and know-how to stand up against the Barack Obama political propaganda machine. The same can be said of Ron Paul.
If Romney actually gets the presidential win in November of 2012, America will once again be disappointed because they were forced to vote for the lesser evil. America’s future will remain in dire straits, it will just take longer with Romney than it would with Obama. But the disappointment will be equal.The more Mitt Romney talks the less I like him or believe he is sincere, and the media has more fodder against him.America doesn’t need Obama nor does it need Romney as President of the United States — they need someone who actually acts upon what needs to be done to reform the republic created as a more perfect union by our founders, not what the establishment has created with the grace of apathetic voters. America also needs the same caliber of men and women in Congress, for despite opinions, a good president can’t get anything done with a good old boy legislation and who doesn’t represent good statesmanship. Time to Wake Up America!Shake the foundation of the GOP and Democrat establishment — support Ron Paul! He is the only candidate that sticks to the policy of individualism, pro-growth (gold standard, etc) and hope he gets the delegates to stand up against Obama for 2012.
