Neither Romney nor Gingrich are conservatives. Anyone who thinks so is denying part of the facts and record of both of these politicians. Both are elites, Gingrich appears to be more of an aggressive elite, while Romney is a softy.
Ron Paul is not a conservative either. He's so far to the right, he becomes a fascist or at best an anarchist. His old Newsletters that are being dug up now verify this. Some of his fans call you all kinds of names if you don't believe in him and some would love to mold (force) you into believing in him.
They are the only ones in our tea party group that somewhat supported the Occupy Wall Street movement as they called out "corporatism" (the Feds) as the main culprit just like the OWS. They are the only ones in our tea party group that supported Adam Kokesh and Code Pink's dancing protest at the Jefferson Memorial this past May and June 2011.
The only true conservative is Michele Bachmann and her record and life from her youth to the present proves it. Michele is an American of the same caliber as our founding fathers. She is intelligent, wise, articulate, strong, unflinching, steady, courageous, gracious, and generous. Most importantly, however, she knows that these qualities come from God and can only be sustained by him, just like George Washington. She embodies the true American Spirit.
WE conservatives can no longer recognize let alone support someone like Michele Bachmann because WE ourselves have lost this American spirit. WE just don't get it. Sad but true, our final candidate cannot be anything more than a second-class substitute because that's who WE are. Congratulations to us!
