WE MUST FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT AGAINST THE INVASION OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY BY THE ROMNEYZOMBIES
May 18, 2012 | GoldenEagles

WE MUST FIGHT THE GOOD
FIGHT AGAINST THIS INVASION
OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY
BY THE ROMNEYZOMBIES

In a comment to the author of this thread, and speaking to the subject of Libertarianism, I commented in this vein that, "Republicans don't need a Libertarian to tell them that Romney is ripping the very heart of the Republican Conscience right out of the body of the Republican Party." (source)

The Reagan Conscience to be precise.

The moment that idea formed in my mind, I remembered this dramatic scene from "The Matrix" movie series, where "Agent Smith", who represents an agent of darkness and slavery, had thrust his hand into the heart of "Neo" the movie's hero, for the purpose of converting him to another mind-numbing agent of the darkside, and I remembered the special effects were superb, and that this scene would serve as a very dramatic metaphor for what is going on in the Republican Party today.

I share this scene here, for the purpose of offering some encouragement to what appears to be the embattled minority, to continue to stand our ground in a determined manner, with the hope of victory blazing brightly at the center of the mind's eye, to block the RomneyZombies efforts to take over the Republican Party.

In the screen-captured image below, you see where Agent Smith has thrust his hand into Neo's heart, and the darkness is spreading out throughout his whole body, and is nearly consuming him, but he gathers together his inner strength (which can only come from his strong belief in, faith in, and trust in God) and drives the darkness back. This scene is about 2:50 into the clip. Be ready to turn up the volume on your system as the sound track in this clip is very low, and you need to hear every word spoken before the major fight scene begins.

(Click here to watch the video clip at
YouTube - a new window will open.
)

See how Neo resists the taking over of his heart, yet he still has a battle to fight. And it is a dramatic battle too. The battle ebbs and flows, for a moment victory seems certain, the next moment defeat seems certain, the next moment the hope of victory bursts alive again, and then it is dashed again as more Agent Smiths arrive on the scene.

Of course it is all allegory. The circle he draws around himself in the end, is an allegory for God.

The moral of the story, is that while you must fight, while you must defend your core priorities in God, you cannot win without the Power of God which you cannot access without obedience to His Laws. That is the symbolism of the circle. It is the circle of the Law, the circle of God-Reality, that is where victory and freedom reside.

And yes, to surrender your purpose to the darkside, the purpose that God has placed in your heart, is to die.

The significance of Agent Smith's initial dialog, is in the fact that the dark side will adapt to the appearance of a real threat, and use deception to get the individual to lower his guard, allowing the enemy to gain access to the heart of the opponent, i.e. to his priority system.

This interesting capacity of Agent Smith to endlessly replicate himself speaks to this phenomena of the darkside capturing the hearts of more and more members of the Republican Party, making them into RomneyZombies, totally unthinking, though stubborn, and relentless, adherents to their leader, Willard M. Romney.

Does it phase them in the least that they bow and scrape before a man whose first name is also the title of a horror movie where the nemesis releases an army of rats on his enemies? No. Everybody will remember Bloody Thursday in exactly that way, except them.

The people who have truth still in their hearts, they must defend it. They must fight off the Agent Smiths. And they must come to terms with the source of their true inner strength, which is the Power of God through the intercession of the Lord Christ, whose universal desire and purpose is to raise each Child of God into the domain of Sonship under God, to thus empower them unto the victory in this ongoing battle between the forces of good and evil.

If that power does not start flowing through them now, as it did through Neo for the victory, the soul of the Republican Party will be lost.

The story of Neo is the story of a regular person, drawn into a great battle for freedom, who has to come to terms with who he really is, a Child of God, Heir to the Kingdom, and the representive of the Most High in the earth, with the power to match. Yes, Neo has to figure out what it really means to believe.

As for buffoon vs futile, methinks you’ve got the subjects of that sentence reversed.

Really?

It appears to me that Obama is an incompetent buffoon and as much as I don't like Romney, he is far smarter than Obama.

Remember when GWB nominated Harriet Miers for the USSC?

The conservative base went ballistic and we got him to reverse that decision.

It can be done. It is up to us.

Ping.

Very interesting post and hand to hand combat comments. LOL! Probably Paul supporters making hay, but I’m for anything trying to still buck the tide before the convention, rather than throwing in the towel and rolling over for the GOP.

The resistance is getting no coverage in the media, that’s for sure.

You be sure to apply that reasoning to all the peeps you voted for prior to this election. I suspect it was a compromise then as it is now. I hope God understands that as well.

Romney is not George W. Bush I woudn’t assume that one is motivated by the same things as the other.

Romney doesn’t think he needs conservatives other than for five minutes in November.

Doesn’t matter. We are screwed with either one, but at least Romney may use some lube.

And now, I really have to continue with my preparations for societal collapse.

Wow....that’s a FANTASTIC picture of Sarah Palin. It truly captures her essence.

There’s still hope that Romney will do the unexpected and name Sarah as his Veep ticket-mate. The result this November would be a landslide of epic proportions bringing many, many down ticket conservative Republicans to victory also. Those conservative reinforcements will be greatly needed in both the US House & Senate—and also at the State & Local levels of government.

I hope most of my fellow FReepers & conservatives will keep the faith and not descend into defeatism. That only leads to “political suicide” & benefits our enemies.

Show up and vote for the conservatives running in your state’s primary and then, this November, show up and vote a straight Republican ticket.

Don't put your hopes and efforts into a weak vessel like Romney. Get good people into Congress

And these goodly people wield their vested power to prevent Unconstitutional, unpopular legislative impositions by the executive branch, such as blocking Obamacare?

Obama, in case no one has recognized it, has concentrated power in his branch, acting either directly or via end runs around Congress by deploying czars and the hammer of federal agencies.

You may not have a political obligation to oppose Obama, but you have a moral obligation. (And here I'm assuming you, as we all do, oppose everything he stands for- trashing our Constitution; abortion "rights"; restricting liberty; wealth redistribution; sustaining our dependence on foreign oil by destroying our domestic and prosperous O&G industry, while rewarding his cronies in hapless "green" energy schemes; bringing the country to its knees before the approving world by crippling our military in the name of fairness and some vague notion of National penance) And that's just for starters. Feel free to add to the list, while you can in a Free Republic forum, because I imagine Obama has plans for such venues.

I think a closer examination of an unwillingness to send Obama home at any cost will eventually change your mind. You want to be true to yourself. Romney, I hope, isn't more important that your moral convictions and values. I'd prefer Perry or Newt and few others running against Zero but it's not the reality. So I deal with it.

Andrew Breitbart, when asked who he favored in the GOP Primaries at CPAC replied "I don't care." He went on to explain himself saying (I paraphrase) that removing Obama was paramount/critical to National survival. He knew. That's good enough for me.

President Bush was far from the perfect conservative. Romney is far to the left of Bush.

He will not be intimidated by conservatives at all.

Let me say, there are lot of us who are going to resist until hell freezes over, but are going about it silently to be spared from the utilitarian voters angst, those who are on high alert, fearing for their own Peace & Safety, believing Romney is different from Obama.

The GOP can’t take us resisters openly, prior to the convention, because the grassroots of this process are plenty teeeeeeeeed off and the grassroots delegates are going to run this show through the convention!

May the delegates reak some havoc while they can and decline the rolled-by-the-GOP crowd here.

Thanks.

I disagree, ctd.

Win or lose, the rebellion has a number of positives, a few of which you should see the benefit in.

First, we really could be the birth of or the strengthening of a new conservative 3rd party that supplants the republocrat party. Whether you vote with us now or not, you hopefully recognize that that would be good for you in the future.

Second, we provide a service for you. Our continual attacks from the side of conservative principle force YOU and other ABO’s to try your best to maintain your principles as well. Liberal Romney will seek to lull you to sleep, but our attacks will hopefully keep YOU, the ABO conservatives, in a full court press to keep Romney from turning to the left.

Third, a miracle could happen. It is always possible that our conservative candidate could take off. This would be through the direct intervention of God, but it is certainly not impossible. After all, the nation has had Great Awakenings in the past.

Faith, Ctdonath2

You may not have a political obligation to oppose Obama, but you have a moral obligation.

Really? Not voting for Romney is immoral? Compromising with evil is immoral.

You want to be true to yourself. Romney, I hope, isn't more important that your moral convictions and values.

I think this is what people mean when they say they can't vote for Mittens. It would be against our moral convictions and values. The constant belittling directed at us for our stance isn't going to change our minds. You people vote for who you want and let us vote for who we want.

This is the year to cut the GOPE loose. This is the year because it counts! That is the only time to strike, because it can mean something.

Romney is not at 1144. The grassroots can own this process right up to and including the CONVENTION, if they will simply seize the moment and run this show!

There is rebellion brewing because the conservatives are OUT of the Republican equation entirely. We are dead in the water with Romney, thoroughly, and certainly with those whose loyalty he bought and paid for, including some Tea Party victors, and the Establishment who brought him in, backed him quietly like Tom Coburn, for example, because IT WAS HIS TURN.

There is no choice left but to pull up from the grassroots and reject this cram down

Romney, if he wins, will carefully maintain the kenyan gains until the Republican Congress goes away in 2014 and until he is voted out of office in 2016 in favor of the new Democrat heir to the kenyan or perhaps to the kenyan himself. In the meantime the Romney will have appointed a couple more Supremes from the commie Left as he showed us he is wont to do in Massachusetts to make things smoother for the official Totalitarians when they get the presidency back.

Romney may be viable but he is not an answer to the problem. Rather he is a continuation and consolidation of the problem.
Replacing Al Capone with Bugsy Siegal is not a good approach to the problem of organized crime.

No. Reread. Not opposing Obama who stands opposed to everything we hold dear denies self-obligation, which is immoral.

The constant belittling directed at us for our stance isn't going to change our minds. You people vote for who you want and let us vote for who we want.

Trust me, I'm not belittling. It would be obvious, and it's not typically my way in serious matters. And you may vote as you please. Your call.

Not an option."

I'm with you. But a lot of folks think it's ridiculous to fear God more than Obama. If you happen to be someone who strongly feels---KNOWS---Romney is a line God does not want you to cross, you're denigrated and mocked as "self-righteous", etc.

Senate Republicans have a long history of magnanimously approving the Democrat President’s choice on the theory that he was elected and he deserves to be able to appoint whom he likes. Democrats fight tooth and nail against conservative appointees and often induce Republican Presidents to appoint moderates (less voluble lefties) or those whose views are unknown. Senate Republicans will be Senate Republicans. They are truly a weak and twisty reed on which to rely.

America does have a holocaust of abortion history; you’re right. But so does Massachusetts, thanks to Mitt Romney, and it’s still going on today. Dead is dead.

And then there was this from Mitt last Thursday: “If two people of the same gender want to live together, want to have a loving relationship, even want to adopt a child — in my state, individuals of the same sex are able to adopt children. In my view, that’s something which people have the right to do”

Vote for that filth if you’re so inclined. But don’t shriek and panic when others balk at doing so.

Instead, to cure the cancer, let's drink crystal draino (aka, Mitt Romney). What could possibly go wrong?

Just an extrapolation of the same one who gave us numerous examples of condemning those who refrained from action, preferring to do nothing and thus facilitating evil. Good Samaritan, Parable of the Talents, various others ... sound familiar?

Upshot: if you don’t vote for Romney, it’s that much easier for Obama to win. But then maybe you’d prefer that outcome...

I'll add a fourth item to your list, xzins, from a post I made back in March :
" ... if Romney continues to show weakness in the polls and his ultimate RNC nomination proves likely to fracture the party ... the GOP elite will be more inclined to fracture the DNC party rather than abandon the investment they've made in him. Loosening the strings on the bag of cats that is Obama's eligibility problem would provide just such a fracture. Watch for a cat to be permitted to sneak out of the bag as Romney's performance continues lackluster."
The cats are seeing a glimpse of daylight lately. We are the trail blazers and we serve our purpose ... appreciated or not. To your analogy, ctdonath2, we are trying eat right and exercise so we can avoid all the things you describe, including the congestive heart failure. Supporting Romney is akin to sitting in front of the television with a bag of chips hoping nothing bad will come of it.

At what point did only the "dog eating" commies become unacceptable to conservatives? I don't support the commies that don't eat dog either.

Thanks for pinging me to this thread Padre. I got lost a bit in the articles analogy, for when I watched the Matrix trilogy, even the 7th or 8th time, all I got out of it was entertainment. I guess I must have a simple mind, as with most movies I watch I only look for escape.

It is somewhat ironic, since Jim announced the "truce" that those of us who have decided for what ever reason not to support Mr. Romney have become objects of derision and treated to invective in these threads. The forum has come a long way in just a few weeks.

I don't take issue with those who support Mr. Romney, for any reason they choose. But I sure don't understand or appreciate that here on JR's absolutely Conservative forum so many seem to want to turn it into a Republican medium. As I stated in a previous thread, it is apparent to me that quite a few of the Republican faithful have become Conservative In Name Only - CINO's.

But as long as JR allows it, who am I to complain? I simply won't cross sabres with them.

Again thanks for the ping.

You: "What does one's apprehension of the fleet have to do with all this?"

LOLOL. Well...um...{{thinking thinking trying to recover}}...it's necessary in understanding the SECRET Navel fleet that usually stays under cover...under wraps...an omnipresent fleet only visible to TSA machines and Mad Magazine mail-order Xray vision sunglasses...a fleet that gets around as it pleases by day buttoned up in a sea of darkness...hiding in plain view yet out of the harsh sun of day...growing in size with over-fuling...stealthly gathering something called a codeword "lint"...to be used for secret, unknown and yet-understood Naval purposes....
