Dear Republican Establishment,
Congratulations. You have done it. It looks like you are going to get your candidate to be the nominee. You have successfully pushed the most liberal Republican in history to the nomination. Of course, that does not matter to you. All that matters is that he is a member of the club and was the next guy in line.
Your candidate did not appeal to the Tea Party or the conservative base. In fact, for the most part he ignored us. You can do that when you can outspend your opponents 5-1 or in some cases as much as 21-1.
But now it is a new ballgame.
You proved you could get Mitt Romney nominated without conservatives. Of course you guys are the one’s who drove the Republican Party to the brink of political extinction in 2006 and 2008. Why should you pay attention to the Tea Party, the group that single handedly saved the Republican Party in 2010?
At this point, you need to buy a clue.
You cannot win the White House without us.
In surveys we have done, 25% of conservatives surveyed said they would not vote for Mitt Romney in the General Election. Barack Obama and the Democrats are going to set records, not only for the amount of money they raise, both legally and illegally, they are also going to set records for the number of dead people voting as well as people voting early and often. After all, it is the Chicago way.
If 25% of the Republican base is checking out, you are not going to win the White House.
So how do you get the conservatives you made a point of ignoring in the primary back into the fold?
First, someone better tell Romney to choose a conservative VP. Chris Christie isn’t a conservative. Neither is Tim Pawlenty. If you want a conservative, think Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, Marco Rubio or Rand Paul.
If you give us another “moderate” or a liberal as the Vice President nominee, we will not be there.
Assuming you do not drive us away with a really bad choice for Vice President, the Republican Party needs to push for the replacement of both Mitch McConnell and John Boehner with competent conservatives. Neither McConnell nor Boehner is competent nor are they conservative.
John Boehner has managed to singlehandedly blow the greatest mandate in Congressional history.
There is an old joke that says the difference between the Democrats and the Republicans is that with the Democrats you get more of the same and with Republicans you get less of the same.
We are tired of less of the same.
If the choice conservatives face is between a radically leftist Democrat Party and an only slightly less liberal Republican, then we will vote with our feet.
We are conservatives because we believe in liberty and freedom. We are Republicans because the Party of Reagan embraced the concepts of freedom and liberty.
Most of us will not vote for Romney. We will vote against Obama because despite how bad Romney is, Obama is much worse.
For us, once again, this will be a case of voting for the lesser of two evils. This is the last time most of us are going to do this.
We do have choices and if the Republican Party chooses to embrace socialism instead of liberty, we conservatives will embrace our other choices.
Your correct, we all better be praying and asking for God's help daily. His guidance, wisdom, courage and assistance to save this Country and return it into HIS hands.
Right on brother. Say it again LOUDER!
i AGREE WITH EVERYTHING YOU SAID EXCEPT RAND PAUL. I DON'T KNOW WHAT HE IS BUT I DO KNOW I AM NOT ONE OF THEM.
Well stated !!
Judson...Rubio is not eligible for high office, and, WE birthers, recently joined by the dems, will see that the RINO's suffer worse than the dems over AKA. He was born in the USA...NATIVE BORN, as neither parent was a citizen....as a matter of fact, neither was even naturalized.
This is going to be a very bad election year for the RINO's, if they can't find themselves a true conservative candidate that WE can all get behind.
Herman Cain and Newt will save America.
Doesn't the Republican Establishment know the if Romney wins the Democrats will be cheering as loud as they are. Romney is the one they want to run against.
There are precious few other choices, Judson. The masses believe in only two parties. The Democrats and Republicans. They are so used to it, they won't even give a third party half a glance. If we are to take political power, we will have to take it from the Republicans, or the Democrats. We have to take one of the parties from the establishment.
Up till now I have been against a third party but,,,,,,,,,,if all we have running is Obama and Romney we will need someone different to vote for. A lib is a lib, wheather he is Ob or Rom. This might be the time to split. We will never get a better time to do it.
All that will do is ensure Obama is re-elected. It would be playing right into the Democrats' hands. No, the answer is to take one or the other Party from the establishment, who runs both Parties.
Judson, you need to look back when you wrote your best blog about Newt, "The History of Newt." You know that the establishment GOP will not listen to us. They, along with their partners in crime, the left, will go to the ends of the world to demonize the tea party and lie.
They are, all, entrenched in the belief that their purpose is to keep us as indentured servants instead of free thinkers. They believe in grabbing as much power and steal from the taxpayers to keep the US in Ameritopia. No open letter to the GOP or any other warnings will change that.
Isn't that what Newt found in congress way back in 1978? The downward spiral continued to the present day and we are at the cliff trying to hold on. This is no time to give up hope and let go of that rope. Remember George Washington in his darkest hour. When you believe, miracles can happen.
You have always said, don't listen to the media, because they are feeding us lies. why, then do you believe them now?
Today, I received an article of hope from Newsmax, the last news media of importance, who is purely conservative. Please read this. It is uplifting. We are not at the end of our rope. Newt's and Santorum's delegate elects haven't given up. We're working harder than ever.
Thanks Agi. I needed that. Hooray! I pray that they can work together for the country. Now I think a ticket with the both of them on it sounds really good. You're right about fighting all the way to the end.
