Patriots, it’s pretty inevitable at this point that the GOP will nominate a RINO for president. We’re stuck with the cards in our hand.
I understand the temptation to sit out the election or split off and create our own party. I get it. I really do. But the reality is, if we do that BEFORE November 2012, Obama will win. If we go “all or nothing,” we’ll end up with nothing. That’s the ugly truth. Allowing this man to win a second term is NOT AN OPTION. The future of our Republic is literally at stake!
I know that it’s not much of a choice between Obama and a “progressive” Republican. But there is one crucial difference: Romney can more easily be held accountable by the Tea Party. We have the power to split his party. Obama suffers no such threat from his party, and has no reason to even pretend to pander to Tea Partiers. In fact, he has greater motivation to declare outright war on us.
Romney may not be a conservative, but he’s no dictator, either. I’d rather put up with a pandering flip-flopper than be faced with a hard-core, dedicated Marxist finally unleashed.
If you’re planning on sitting out or doing a write-in in 2012 because you can’t have the candidate you want, just imagine what an Obama second term will look like: more “flexibility” since he’s no longer accountable to the voters, the last vestiges of our constitution swept away, a president ruling by executive order while running roughshod over congress, and the appointment of two more radical supreme court justices who will do everything in their power to rewrite and destroy the constitution for decades to come.
So we have to decide, which is the best strategy for the Tea Party from here on out? Trying to hold a RINO’s feet to the fire in the White House? Or trying to keep a wannabe dictator in check for the next four years?
The most important thing right now is to take back the senate and send a strong conservative majority to congress. We need a legislative branch that is willing and able to stop the out-of-control spending and hold the executive branch in check. Then all that will matter about the White House is who holds the veto pen, the power to appoint judges, and the position of commander-in-chief of the armed forces.
Don’t throw the towel in yet. It took 30 years for the communists to take over the Democrat party. The Tea Party has made amazing headway in only three years (as 2010 proved), given that most of us had never been involved in politics in our lives. We’ve been very successful in taking over the GOP leadership at the local level, and in some places even state level.
It’s going to take at least another election cycle before we can succeed in taking over the GOP at the national level. And it’s going to take a lot more patriots willing to get off the bench, register as PCP’s, rise within the ranks of the GOP, and run for office. We may have to settle for a place holder candidate this time around, but if we play our cards right, it will be the LAST time!
