Well, I didn’t want to spoil the thread saying that we have no choice but Romney. But I agree that we somehow have to get together and find a solution.
The problem with the Tea Party—as well as it’s strength—is that there is no central leadership. Somebody needs to rally the troops. Maybe Sarah is the one.
Either we manage to deadlock the convention and head Mitt off at the pass, or we need to somehow agree on a candidate that will pull the so-called social conservatives and the libertarians together.
You can’t have one without the other, but the RINOs and the Dems have certainly done a great job of playing on their differences and splitting the conservative vote. Again and again and again.
You can’t have fiscal sanity without moral sense and Christian values. Freedom requires self-discipline, which can come only from religion freely chosen, as history has proven. And you can’t have a return of morality as long as big government is increasingly in charge and busy corrupting the people to maintain its power.
My own feeling is that the GOP is defunct and hopeless, and that we need a new party. But if the delegates at the convention can somehow throw off the yoke of corruption and do the right thing, that would be fine with me!
But Romney is a lying, self-loving, gay-activist, big-government babykiller. I simply cannot vote for someone like that, not even if Obama is even worse.
The problem with the Tea Partyas well as its strengthis that there is no central leadership.
The TEA Party is a grassroots movement and certainly does not need a central leadership. Leadership stems from the local citizens who volunteer their time in their communities, although there are several TEA organizations that seem to occasionally get on TV.
We don’t need a third political party. We need to ensure that the Republicans increase their members in the House and secure a veto-proof majority in the Senate. ...Then, even if Obama does gain a second term he will be hog-tied! (Just as Bush was in his last two years and Clinton was in his last six years)
The Dem pundits keep talking about how Clinton handed Bush a great economy but don’t mention that it was the Rep Legislature that did so, and the Dems talk about how Bush gave Obama a deficit but don’t admit that they ruled Congress his last two years and caused the deficit that was far beyond the war costs.
