Prepare To Be Disappointed

For those of you have been long time readers here at the "View", I know many of you might not consider yourselves Tea Party people, but I think you can agree with what they stand for: fiscal sanity, smaller government, and a return to Constitutional values. Although the Tea Party was largely responsible for propelling a majority of the freshman class of Republicans into the Congress in 2010, thereby turning over power to the GOP, we are repeatedly told that this means nothing and that they have to get in line with the "Republican Establishment" and follow the rules (i.e., roll over and play dead for the Democrats).

I have never seen a more disgusting bunch of wimps in my life as those who portray themselves as the "Grand Old Party". I think GOP stands for the "Great Onion Party" (guaranteed to make you cry), or perhaps the "Girlie Officials Party". At a time when we need someone to stand up to Obama and the Deviouscrats, we get this bunch of turkeys. No, that would be demeaning to turkeys. How about, this load of "stuff"? ... unprincipled jerks who are more worried about their image than they are about the fate of the nation. God have mercy on their souls!

Therefore, it is with great sadness that I regret to inform you that this election cycle will produce nothing like the Tea Party values that the election of 2010 promised to give birth to. Indeed, I predict that President Barack Hussein Obama will be re-elected to a second term.

I make my prognostication on the following basis. First, it is clear that the "Republican Establishment" will not allow anyone other than Mitt Romney to take the nomination. Whenever confronted by the possibility that a true (or even a vaguely true) conservative started surging in the polls as the "anti-Romney", then the evil GOP forces of darkness went into operation. Karl Rove has blasted every potential GOP candidate with the exception of Romney. Bill O'Reilly and most of the other (supposedly conservative) FOX pundits went into the tank immediately for Romney and "pooh-poohed" the others as being unelectable.

The general wisdom among such talking heads seems to be that in order to get elected as a Republican, you must be half-Democrat in order to appeal to the independents. What a crock! More than 60% of people in this country identify themselves as conservatives, therefore we are forced to choose between a Marxist Democrat and a Liberal Republican? Next they'll be telling us we have to choose between a Communist Democrat and a Marxist Republican. Where does it end?

You might as well plan then on having Mitt Romney as the GOP candidate. You don't have any choice in the matter. It's already been decided by people in "high places". George H.W. Bush has given his nod to Romney, as has Karl Rove, Bill O'Reilly, Bret Baier, Brit Hume, and Ann Coulter.

Even the Left-wing media wants him to be the Republican candidate, and that should be a signal that something is wrong here. Why would the libs want Romney? Because he is nothing more than Obama-lite. If Romney should win, they can live with him. And the Left knows that Romney won't generate any excitement among his conservative base, so they are hoping that Tea Party people will get disgusted and stay home on election day. And, they reason, if you liked Romneycare, then why not try Obamacare? What's the difference? It's just bigger and better.

And with Romney as the candidate, there is a statistically higher than average chance that a Ron Paul and/or a Donald Trump will jump into the race. GREAT! That should be FUN. Why don't we just split the Republican vote two or even three ways! That will simply hand the election to Obama and here we go... 4 more years.

Why don't you just shoot me now and get it over with?

Couldn't agree with you more, Hawkeye. It is so sad to see what is happening. My hubby and I have come to the conclusion that at the top of both parties, the personalities and ideologies are the same and it has been decided that this president will have a second term to put those ideologies into place. We are no longer supporting the GOP but are only supporting individual candidates. It is a sad day in America when the voters realize that what they think and want really doesn't matter a hill of beans to the elite.
Hope you have a great New Year's party. :-)

The problems with Republicans is they portray themselves as old stuff shirts while the Dem's chase after the young minds that have nothing more than an empty cavity upon their shoulders.

Recently our local Republican election official called me to sign a petition to nominate an old lady who is half senile to become precinct chairperson.

I let him have it with both barrels over that issue but I doubt it sunk in very deep.

I guarantee the Democrats have a younger person. Perhaps not as young as one may think but certainly younger than our lady.
At election time I generally do half of her duties, that is okay so far but come next November it is going to be a killer and I am not sure whether I am up to the task of working the polls.

But as far as who we elect, every Tea Part individual must voice their opinions--loudly and proudly.
I'm not betting on Bobo winning next fall, although we can be assured of voter fraud at every conceivable level.

The most disturbing thing about establishment Republicans (Democrat-Lite) is just like liberal Democrats they're more than willing and capable of trashing any principled constitutional conservative in order to preserve their powerbase in Washington.

I've told any number of establishment Republicans in my town that like liberal Democrats, they're days are numbered if they continue spending America further into debt and thumb their noses at Article 1 Section 8 and the 9th and 10th Amendments of the U.S. Constitution. Also, any Republican at any level who acts merely as tax collectors for the left's welfare/entitlement state is persona non-grata in my book and a growing number of informed Americans are starting to realize this. If there isn't a seismic shift in the Washington mentality this country will either fall into a left-wing tyranny lording it over the sheeple or a revolution that will make 1776 look like a Boy Scout convention.

Just sayin'.

So now you know why Michelle Bachman
is the "real" tea party candidate.
She has all the Tea party qualificatios and is a "REAL" Christian.

If she wins the GOP will have to tow the line.
Don't give up and Pray for our country.

I am disappointed in the entire process but will take heart in the fact that, over the past several election cycles, small-government ideals have continuously marched into greater and greater favor among the populace. That "Overton Window" effect is slowly and inexorably moving the "favorable" into alignment with small government principles. I am not happy with any of the current candidates in the Republican race but feel that any of them would be an improvement over Obama, however incremental...

That said, there is always an independent choice and I would never hesitate to vote my mind, even if it helped the Democrats. It would require a candidate that I believe in and that I agree with. Hmmm...

Beerme, I have to disagree with you on this one. For the sake of the nation and our posterity, the overriding principle is "anybody who has a real shot but that neo-Marxist Obama."

That means we are compelled by our circusmstances and the sake of this nation to vote for any candidate who has a legitimate shot at replacing this incompetent, ideological, radical hack who is laying waste to this nation. Charlie Sheen would be a better candidate than Obama.

Any vote for someone that doesn't have a snowball's chance of unseating Obama is a VOTE FOR OBAMA! There is no "principle" in voting for someone who runs as a third party knowing that would throw the election to the present Destroyer-in-Chief. Frankly I'm tired of hearing people say, "Well, I'm going to vote my conscience and vote for a candidate that I know hasn't a snowball's chance of winning." That's no "principle" at all, it's ignorant pride.

Though Romney certainly is no Tea Party candidate, he's orders of magnitude better than Obama who has made being an incompetent radical ideologue a presidential virtue among braindead AmeriKans.

My advice to anyone who seriously considering throwing their vote away by voting for a guaranteed loser this time around is there's a lot more riding on November 2012 than your pride. I mean, haven't you guys learned anything from the Perot-Bush-Clinton debacle of 1992 when Perot split the vote and Clinton won with 43% of the popular vote? And later analysis revealed that Perot siphoned off three times the conservatives than liberals. Sheesh!

Just sayin'.

Hi Mary Beth,
Good to hear from you. Planning on going out to dinner on New Year's Eve with some neighbor friends. Will do my best to have a good time. Same to you.

(:D) Best regards...

Hi Shelly,
Actually, I don't think the Republicans portray themselves as anything. They allow themselves to be portrayed by the Dems as old, rich, white guys who have nothing in common with young people, minorities, and/or women. And THAT is a MISTAKE. The GOP needs a good PR firm to help them find an ID that Dems can't smear.

As for voter fraud, you got that right. One the biggest voting blocks in the Democrat party consists of cartoon characters and dead people.

(:D) Best regards...

I hope we can keep the momentum going. I would like nothing more than some of these RINOs and GOP Establishment types get thrown out on their ears in favor of a Tea Party candidate. I'm trying to keep the faith, but it's depressing to what we are up against... not just the Vast Left Wing Conspiracy, but even those who are "supposed to be" on our side.

Best regards...

At 12/29/2011 2:24 PM , Blogger Hawkeye® said...

Yeah, I'd vote for Bachmann in a heartbeat.

(:D) Best regards...

At 12/29/2011 2:30 PM , Blogger Hawkeye® said...

Bachmann is clearly the best choice. She's a constitutional conservative. She's got Tea Party values (in fact she started the Tea Party caucus in Congress). She's pro-life, pro-faith, and she's lived out her Christianity by raising 23 foster children. She was the first to take a hard stand to repeal Obamacare, and it wasn't until she won the Iowa straw poll that the other candidates took up that position. I'm just disappointed that more Iowans just don't see that.

Best regards...

If, as I suspect, that Romney takes the nomination, then I will hold my nose and vote for him. That's exactly what I did with McCain... so much for that wasted vote. As Mark Levin says, "I'd vote for a tin can before I voted for Obama."

But what REALLY irks me is that the Republican Establishment is willing to accept anybody that the Tea Party can get elected for them, but God forbid that we should put one of them in the White House. You know... "Thanks Tea Party, but screw you."

It just stinks to high heaven and I'm completely fed up with it.

Hey everybody!,
Where's Camo? He missed "Eleventeen!"

(Probably out on some exciting new adventure in some exotic locale. Sigh.)

I agree with the two term. We get someone that will actually make a difference and the Repugs will be spineless or we get Kennedy politics.... and what would it matter. we're doomed and I can't get excited about it.

Thinking of throwing in for Santorum myself, I can't see Bachmann winning against Obama, not with the MSM machine dominating the narrative. I still believe the best match up against Obama was Cain, Imagine what could have been if Cain could have won and proceeded to dismantle the lock the Dems have on the black vote. At this point our solution is beyond politics, it is only a genuine return to God that will turn this around now.

Eleventeen plus six, then. ;-)

As you surmised, I am indeed away; the other day I was on Ni'ihau for the first time and will probably post something about it on my blog. For the past few days I was hiking on the Kalalau Trail, but I've done that before.

Anyway, as for the topic here, in the words of the Pink Floyd song: "Welcome to the Machine".

Hi Mig,
Yeah, it's hard to get excited about being doomed.

(:D) Best regards...

You're right. We should start praying (and fasting wouldn't hurt either) for our country. God save us from the socialists.

Best regards...

See, I knew it. Some place exotic. Hope you're having a good time, and Happy Birthday tomorrow!
