Watching the hackneyed direction the GOP establishment, the political pundits, the media, and the various candidates have gone in this primary season has been painful, yet predictable to say the least. The best I can say is we have seen the typical side of establishment politics as deja vu all over again.
Let me first say I am a conservative activist and am not for or against any one of the Presidential candidates. That is not what this is about. This is about principles and establishment politics showing it's polished and varnished to shiny gloss ability to remove the American people from the process in a way other than it was intended to be. Giving them little to no relevance in the selection process.
Throughout all of the debates, throughout all of the campaigning there has been one candidate foisted on the public. That candidate is Mitt Romney. Whether he is the right candidate or not remains to be seen. The fact-of-the-matter is, when another candidate makes strides ahead of Romney, that candidate is viciously attacked by all political sides. This factor alone shoes how the forces above unite to separate the American electorate as if we are entering the Twilight Zone of a solipsistic world. Their politically, self-contained world where it is a token "say so" given to the common people for posterities sake.
I have a huge bit or realistic news for them....most of the American voters are not loyal to a Party. Most of the American voters are becoming frustrated with politics as usual and are at the same time, becoming more educated.
How many polls have we seen where the top issues for voters are "jobs", or a variation of this? The economy. The deficit. We have heard debates with every predictable or erratic response the candidates can conjure up. Politicians and the empty media's rendition of mere subjects, not issues. Please! They are testing our intelligence again.
Other than idle pledges, empty promises backed and supported by whose views? Which Presidential candidate has stated not only what they would do, but also how they would accomplish it?
The voters have heard the promises already....over and over. We heard them in 2010 from Congressional and Senatorial candidates and incumbents. We heard how they were going to cut spending. We heard how they were going to put legislation in place to protect and grow our economy. What has happened? The Congress has forfeited their duty to a "Super Committee" on the budget, which turned out to be a "Super Failure". The current President has bypassed the Senate for his appointments and executive orders. The Congress has passed numerous bills to attempt to undo damage caused by the previous Congress, only to be blocked by the Senate. The Merry-Round-House, where they obviously meet in the middle and play ring-around-the-rosy while the American citizens continue to suffer and become meaningless.
The GOP will lose this Presidential election for all the above reasons and because they will continue to make bad choices with the Vice-President nomination. I am already hearing rumors that Mitt Romney has spoken with Meg Whitman for this position, who, regardless of the amount of money poured into her California Governor's race, lost decisively.
When is the GOP going to wake up to the fact that there are just some candidates that can never win no matter how much money they have? For that matter, when are both Party's going to realize this? Money does not mean success in politics today. It may have been true in the past, but the electorate is awake, educated, and uninterested in the overused re-runs.
No matter what Party the people belong to, they are not willing to stand idly or silently by while the powers that be decide what candidate is best for them. Nor are they willing to stand by while the Party foists candidates upon them that have instituted policies not consistent with our values, heritage, and traditions. No more taking away the precious freedoms from our hands and giving them to greedy politicians who think they are above the natural law or "We The People".
The GOP will go down faster than the Olympic Schuss if they don't wake up and wise up!
