Conservatives like to ask the question, “What would Ronald Reagan do?” When it comes to election time, the Reagan test evolves into candidates claiming to be the most like Reagan. We are down to two candidates running for President.
Between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, who is the most like Reagan? The answer may surprise you. For conservatives understanding the answer will be crucial to this election.
Who is the most like Reagan? Why? And most important of all, what is the lesson that is so critical here?
The shocking answer is that the candidate most like Ronald Reagan is Barack Obama.
Before anyone goes shrieking into the morning, throwing computers, sharp objects or jumping from 1st story windows, understand Barack Obama is no conservative.
He is a Marxist.
So how can he be more like Ronald Reagan than Mitt Romney?
When Ronald Reagan ran for the Presidency, he did not do it because he needed to feed his ego. Nor did he do it just to punch the ticket on his resume.
When Ronald Reagan ran for office, he did it because he was on a mission. Ronald Reagan’s mission was to destroy communism abroad and roll back socialism here in America. In the late 70’s, before Reagan became President, in a lot of areas, it was hip to call yourself a communist. By the time Reagan was done, only crazy old college professors and nut job Hollywood stars called themselves communists.
Ronald Reagan had a purpose.
Four Presidents separate Ronald Reagan from Barack Obama. Reagan and Obama were the only two of the last six who went to the White House on a mission.
Unfortunately for America, Obama’s mission is to destroy America. His mission is to see America reduced from the world’s superpower to just another nation. His mission is to transform America from a free market nation to a socialist nation. His mission is to destroy the freedom and liberty that have made America great and replace it with a system that is known for producing only tyranny, poverty and occasionally mass murder.
Of the six Presidents, including President Reagan and Obama, two thirds have gone to the White House without a specific mission. They had some kind of agenda but they did not have the great sense of purpose driving them.
If Mitt Romney becomes President in January, then only two of the seven most recent Presidents will be, to paraphrase the title from Rick Warren’s bestseller, “A purpose driven President.”
For conservatives, we should be rejoicing in this fact and planning our strategy accordingly.
Why should we rejoice?
Romney is not going to be a strong leader. He is a manager, not a leader. When the constitution was written, our founding fathers did not want a strong President. If you read the Constitution, the duties of the President and for that matter the Federal Government, are quite limited.
The real power is supposed to reside in the Congress.
This must be our strategy for 2012. We must elect a conservative congress. We must follow the Reagan strategy and have a plan. Reagan planned to bring down the Soviet Union by the end of his second term. He missed that by three years, but he succeeded.
We conservatives must plan to bring down socialism in America by 2020. We can do this.
If Romney is President, he probably will not help us much but he will not stand in our way. If Obama gets a second term, he can use the power of the executive branch to continue his mission to destroy America. If we have the greatest congress in the history of this nation, Obama will still be able to veto legislation and take executive action to stop the roll back of socialism.
The Reagan rule is simple. It is actually not a political rule per se but a rule of life. If you are going to succeed, you must have a plan. Benjamin Franklin said, “He who fails to plan, plans to fail.”
This is the secret of our success and how we save America. Our plan must be to get a conservative congress elected this fall and get Obama out of the White House before he can do any more damage.
This is what Reagan would do.
You could be wrong Judson. This is just your opinion right? Comparing Reagan and Obama is a moronic exercise and you should cease and desist. The differences atomically overshadow this mission business after all this isn't even Bary's mission its Soro's. If you continue to spew obnoxious BS like this Judson I may have to stop listening to you altogether.
Reagan DEFEATED his Romney in the primary ... his name was George Herbert Walker Bush.
It is unwise for anyone to try to tell others what Ronald Reagan would do were he alive in 2012. However, if any were to "imagine" such a scenario, I would pose some questions. Would RR allow the "moderates" of the GOP establishment to choose the least conservative candidate in his lifetime? Would RR have run himself, if possible? If ineligible, would RR choose a true conservative to campaign for, and see him ... or her ... nominated?
The Question Judson tries to imply an answer to, is one Judson actually avoids. If RR were alive and well, whether eligible or ineligible, and saw his nation on the verge of a currency collapse and debt bomb, saw the constitution trampled and the Laws violated with impunity, and saw the two major parties nominate Obama and Romney, ... given that narrowly crafted question or scenario, then ... What Would Ronald Reagan Do?
My answer is NONE of us knows and therefore none of us should offer our opinions.
Our Highest Priority Right Now Should Be to Declare to our eventual Nominee What We Stand FOR ... and just as Reagan said he never left the democrat party ... it left him, we should make clear to the eventual nominee How NOT to leave U.S.!
If ever there was a Manchurian Candidate, one who was EDUCATED and Programmed to destroy america, or at least make America into a third world country .. Obama/ Soetoro/ Whatever his other names are .. is doing a bang up job of it and still convincing the knuckle-heads he is doing what is best for America.
Reagan might not overtly challenge Obama, but he certainly would get enough people doing a back-door search to legally get him out of office and have take responsibility for the damage he has done. That ... is what Ronald Reagan would do ...
Finally someone has really stated obama's goal... THE COMPLETE DESTRUCTION OF OUR COUNTRY!!!!!1
Obama Father born in Africa, Mother born in America, Mitt Father born in Mexico, Mother born in America, Rubio parents born in Cuba. Obama as being prove born in Africa, Mitt Born in America, Rubio born in America.
To be President, to be natural born supposable of two American parents.
Now if we are to obey the Constitution, lets obey.
Or are we going to use the Constitution to fit our needs. We can't be on both side of the fence and say its OK.
I agree that we must "abide by The Constitution (The Tea Party Advocates) or we are no better than the "Usurpers that we have had that violated and is violating it daily".
You are correct Russell. I will be very disappointed if Romney picks Rubio for the VP slot. In the meanwhile we are between a rock and a hard place, we may not get this fixed anytime soon, all we can do right now is to rid ourselves of Obama, maintain control of the House and gain control of the Senate and with Gods' help win enought senate seats to have veto override power.
MORE BOVINE SCATALOGY!
Just another attempt to get us to back Romney.
ALL OF THE LOGIC IN THE WORLD WILL NOT CONVINCE CONSERVATIVES THAT ROMNEY WILL DO A GOOD JOB AS PRESIDENT.
Romney is a socialist, one world government follower. He always was a moderate (that really means liberal in
the modern Republican language).
He will not say he will stop the new dream act enacted this week by Obama. He will not say he will repeal all of Obama Care. IN FACT HE WILL NOT SAY ANYTHING AND WHEN HE DOES HE CHANGES SIDES LIKE THE TIDE CHANGES DIRECTION!
WAKE UP PEOPLE - DON"T PUT YOUR FAITH IN ROMNEY. HE WILL LET YOU DOWN!
For me I am going to set out this presentational election!
Ray; Write-in candidates are what I think can change congress.. read below... and it would really help if we had someone up for president & vice-president.
Write in candidates only split the vote. Not wise.
Your right if its not worked.. what if all seats up for election had a candidate that we approved of? What if each candidate worked the email for him/herself and also pushed the Pres & Vice candidates, also having a list of all our other candidates in their emails and their states?
Would this be better than "it won't work, Not wise"??????
Its time we act, not just complain!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
