The Mask is Off
American Thinker ^ | January 28, 2012 | Ebben Raves

Posted on 01/28/2012 11:34:03 AM PST by Hotlanta Mike

Edited on 01/28/2012 12:20:56 PM PST by Jim Robinson. [history]

Last Thursday will be remembered as the day the Republican establishment unveiled its true face. We know they've just been inside the beltway too long. We expect their informed opinion to tilt in whatever direction keeps them on the cocktail circuit. That's why many of us don't pay a whole lot of attention to them. But to bring out John McCain and Bob Dole to give us advice on picking presidential candidates and have who we thought were "our" pundits treat it as gospel? Next they will tell us ObamaCare is not so bad. Oh wait, they're already priming that pump.

Let's face it, Reagan was an aberration. Before and since, can anyone truthfully say that the party has gone to the mat for conservative, TEA party values? Or has it been just lip service? Why is it always that when we seem to be inside the twenty on an issue that matters, such as cutting the size of government and holding it accountable, we can never score? Newt tried somewhat in the nineties, but was stabbed in the back by his own party. What happened when the Republicans had both houses and the presidency? What happened to the House of Representatives the TEA party put in office in 2010? Excuses. There always has been and there always will be excuses.

That brings us to this election cycle. Mitt Romney is the establishment's man. Never mind that Romney has never done anything conservative. Never mind that it is leaking out that he probably won't get rid of ObamaCare, the issue that gave Republicans the House in 2010. Never mind that his biggest qualification is that he is a businessman. So is George Soros. Pretty much the same kind of business, too. Woe on to anyone who is a threat to the status quo that challenges him, though. They will be attacked with a fervor never unleashed on a Democratic opponent.

Now why is that? As always, money and power. And, as Ayn Rand told us, the biggest pile of either resides in Washington, DC. For the Republican and Democratic establishment and their lackeys, it has never been about principles or the middle class. It has always been about saying or doing whatever it takes to feed at the public trough. Anyone who gets in their way or dares to shrink the trough will be destroyed. Those at the trough do share with each other, though. How often do you see anyone from either party suffer consequences from fleecing the taxpayer?

So, TEA party, constitutional conservative folks, we have a choice to make. We can stay on the plantation, run away or abolish it. The first choice is easy and we may even see some scraps from time to time. The last two will be more difficult, but since we now know the face of the enemy, not so much.

Now, it is time for "We, the People," not the GOP Establishment types, to call for a candidate who has enough knowledge to defend the Constitution's protections against elected representatives from both Parties. After all, pure and simply, that was what it was designed to do.

At this moment there are 3 who appear to have studied the Founders in some depth.

It will be up to "the People," however, to hold their candidate accountable, once nominated.

Gingrich seems to be intellectually, and by a lifetime of study, qualified to craft an individual liberties, ideas-based campaign capable of exposing and defeating the "I-can-do-everything-for-you" enslaving ideas of Obama.

Romney displays no such study or grounding in principles underlying our freedom.

"Spending 25 years in the private sector" working and participating in the results of America's founding ideas does not, in itself, qualify one for defending the ideas that made it possible to do so.

When asked, Romney seems unable to set his answers in anything deeper than quotations from Reagan, patriotic songs, or familiar phrases from other speakers.

That kind of surface knowledge of the vast reservoir of ideas essential to liberty will not defeat an opponent who has immersed himself in the set of government-centered, tyrannical ideas to which he is committed and for which he has been mentored and trained to defend and cloak in a garment of benevolence.

Romney's offhandedness in describing the November 2012 opponent as just "in over his head" indicates unpreparedness for a battle of opposing ideas with a person who is committed and determined to impose those ideas, despite their having failed in every society where they have been tried.

Excellect article. I spent almost my entire adult life donating time and money to help support the GOP, but any party with the face of Mitt Romney (or the fat man from NJ) is no party of mine.

Time to take out the establishment or shoot the elephant all together and start anew. Its a long, hard slog but quite frankly Romney or Obama the country still bleeds. Its only a matter of degree.

Here’s to the rebellion!!

Next, they will tell us not to be so “hostile” to Obama during the general election. They are trying to rig it so that Obama wins, the Dems take the house, and retain the Senate. They also want to set up a Jeb Bush run in 2016.

Know your enemy. As is becoming evident, it is how much the Republican and Democratic parties are alike. It is about the power and the money. Always. Doesn’t matter whether there is a (R) or a (D) in front of the name, if they are in DC they all smell the same.

Seriously.

If Romney is the Nominee, then:

- Newt, Palin, and West should go into a room
- Two emerge as the ticket for a new conservative party
- All 3 campaign

The Whigs are dead, are they not? Why not the current “Republican Party”??

Thank you for sharing. I think our country is at a crossroads. Florida is a huge battle in this fight. Newt is a brilliant person whom deeply understands the history of America. That commitment to America has been proven for very many years. His speeches are inspiring.
He doesn't see himself as above us. At one of his rallies, he seem down to earth and polite though still in a direction to beat Romney. He has been fighting the left for many years. The left are in fear of his ideas because it is totally radically different than theirs. Romney can be easily transformed to their ideology because it is very similar to theirs (Obamacare). This entire primary has been an abuse of power on display. The GOP insiders-the media and the people that we admire who say they are for conservatism have been very unprofessional. Those groups may say that the campaigns are dirty though they have succeeded in becoming unethical. I would take bold changes over the country club dividing our people into groups any day. There is No way a politician like Romney should even be in the top tier of this campaign due to socialism health care plan he set into law. Now, we have Pam Bondi letting the cat out of the bag, saying she will help Romney on a National health Task force. That is real influence peddling. He is going to be the worse person elected who will help his Wall Street friends and let the country come second. We, the people, have to stop their agenda and by not forcing Romney on us and supporting Newt we may have a chance of reforming the way Washington works. Don't they get it-we are all good people-we are tired of sitting here watching them do things that we don't do in our own lives as they change our liberties into controlled mandates. You cannot take someone freedoms away then expect the people not to react.

Loved Drudge, but....I can’t take a chance of Newt not getting elected, sorry.

If it’s Romney, well....I just won’t vote at all.

Screw the freaking Republicans —Romney is McCain, is Dole, is Ford is the loyal opposition.

GO NEWT...!

If it’s for all the marbles, my choice is Newt or nothing.

As painful and shocking (to some) as it was, I think time will show that Bloody Thursday was one of the best things that could have ever happened to us. No longer will we have to wonder who is saying what behind our backs in the closed rooms.

If somebody doesn’t like you- isn’t it much better to have them say it to your face, rather than making you wonder all the time?

I would think it would have to be a new party, although that is never an easy choice. Fiscal conservatives are probably the majority in the GOP, except where it matters the most - at the top of the party. The "moderates" at this point are simply in collusion with the Democrats to hang onto whatever power they can maintain, which makes them no better than the Democrats. There is truly no difference between a Democrat and a moderate Republican these days, and Romney is the proof of this.

Newt led the revolution that put the Republicans in control of the house for the first time in 50 years. Unfortunately, a lot of those freshmen class members got co-opted (to use Trent Lott's term) and corrupted by the environment, and grew to love having control of the Federal Teat more than loving their country (the Bob Michel RINOs that were already there probably helped).

Some of them are still there, opposing Newt's run for the Presidency. They got behind Romney because they believe he will keep the gravy train going, whether or not he defeats Obama (the only thing that matters is getting majorities in the House and Senate).

Thanks for the article. These are my observations of this week’s events.

All Republicans except true Conservatives are pushing MR, with the daily media’s assistance. MR is no longer courting Conservatives in Florida...or anywhere else this week.

Republican Party appears to believe it has a path to elect a President and Republican Congress utilizing Independents and disenfranchised Democrats in place of Conservatives’ votes.

I wonder if the Republican Elite have concluded they can govern from a moderate/moderate-left platform (no-real-convictions either way), and can enlist disenfranchised Democrats, who now don’t want Obama either, to help elect a liberal Republican as President, with the unwilling assistance of Conservatives who, the Elites think, will vote against Obama no matter what.

The Elites seem intent to break the power of Conservatives by catering to enough Democrats and non-Conservative Independents, overpowering our candidates so they won’t have to put up with us anymore in this or coming national elections.

They’ve moved their chess pieces into position this week to show us how the game is going to go, no matter what we Conservatives may want to happen.

I pray they are wrong. They probably are. Fire away.

To sum it up:

If a liberal/moderate Republican is going to be the nominee and it is a given that all Conservatives are going to vote Republican (against Obama) in this election anyway, then we Conservatives no longer have a loud enough voice to select a President nominee now or in the future. We HAVE to vote for who they say.

I’ve felt ever since the SC primary that some Elites are planning a Romney/Santorum ticket, to appease some Conservatives. They think the rest of us Conservatives will vote them in just to defeat Obama and no other reason.

If these Elites are correct, the Republican Party will never nominate another Conservative for President...ever.

I don’t see Newt as a Tea Partier at all, but he is the best we have in a very weak field against Romney. And if conservatives pull it off, the big government Republican will still anoint them with considerable influence within a Gingrich administration. Mitt wins on the other hand, they will not only not get the time of day but will systematically dismissed and dismantled in Congress. Sad that it has come to such a ridiculous farce of a choice, but alas here we are. Depressing is too light a word.

The Mask is Off

RINOs are, and have always been, the true power behind the Democrats.

Nobody likes to remember that communism was funded by the Right. Blueblood Republican money MADE communist Russia, and has underwritten ever socialist/collectivist movement in this country as well.

Want an even more bitter sting? Large corporations are run internally AS communist governments. True merit is utterly dismissed, and pay and perks are distributed according to connection with the ruling elite of the company.

This is common knowledge.

It's just not talked about.

THAT is the REAL reason Obama is in the White House - and far worse, that Hillary STILL hovers around, eternally waiting and positioning, decade after decade. She's not courting the Rats - she's paying off RINOs.

Democrats are the Persians - but RINOs are of the family of Ephialtes.

I can’t vote for Romney. I simply can’t. There was a time when I didn’t care about Romney one way or another, being under his governorship as a Massachusetts resident seemed an improvement over some before and after him. But no longer. I am unwilling to compromise any more.

And I can’t vote for Scott Brown either.

Or politicians like them.

I am sick and tired of the GOP presenting us with choices like McCain and Dole. It gives us presidencies like Clinton and Obama.

Someone has this strange idea that liberalism is a fence that can be straddled, and some of the elements of it can be picked and chosen, while the conservative ideas can be surrendered to make room for them, and that in the end, liberals are attracted and conservatives are satisfied.

IT DOES NOT WORK.

Any “conservative” who crosses the aisle to get elected by embracing liberal ideas has two things happen to him:

First, he is ridiculed, stabbed in the back and has his extended hand cut off by liberals he sides with, because even people as morally corrupt as liberals easily recognize and hate traitors, and treat them with the contempt they deserve. Think of how Benedict Arnold was treated by the British. He tried to sell his country for a bag of silver, but the British wanted nothing to do with him after he went over to their side.

Second, they end up using future elections because they no longer have a leg to stand on, and voters looking for handouts, when given a choice between a piker and professional, will always choose the professional liberal. Trying to out-liberal a liberal is a recipe for Republican failure, since you will no longer be able to stand by the conservative principles you once held (remember “No New Taxes”) and the liberals will be much more efficient at getting and distributing pork, because they have more experience without the annoying principles holding them back. Kind of the equivalent of arguing with an idiot...they bring you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

For a long time, I treated politics as a “lesser of two evils” type of thing, and was perfectly content with the logic of voting for the candidate who wouldn’t do as much damage as the other, and that was almost always the Republican candidate.

I have come to the realization in the last several years, particularly with the election of Scott Brown in my state, that it doesn’t work.

Voting for a candidate who is not quite as liberal as another simply means the same destructive and corrosive liberal agenda will take a little longer to be effected, but it will be effected just the same.

And the worst part of it is, that it will happen with the imprimatur of Republicans. Whatever happens, liberals will point to the “bipartisanship” of whatever evil it is they push, and say “Hey, you voted for this guy and he voted for (Insert liberal cause here: nationalized healthcare, homosexuals in the military, raising taxes, etc) so this is what people want and it is what we are going to do.”

To me, a knife in the chest from an enemy I recognize as such is preferable to a knife in the back from a supposed ally.

Liberalism, like government, is a one way ratchet. Liberal polices are enacted, and are never reversed. Governments expand but never, ever shrink. And in the end, we still get to the same destination, it just takes a little bit longer is all.

I am not doing it any more.
