A lot of us understand perfectly why Romney didn't want to go there -- those of us familiar with his record, anyway. For crying out loud, Catholic church charity adoption agencies in Massachusetts closed their doors because of law Romney created that would have forced them to accommodate gay "married" couples as "parents." Sure, you can find how later he tried to pawn it off as "nothing I could do, I tried to stop it ..." but any informed Republican is aware of the vast extent of Romney's pro-Gay agenda.
Between blatant vote fraud and a Republican candidate who was himself a fraud in terms of conservatism ... the Republicans lost.
Most Americans reject liberalism because most Americans are good, moral people. It is why Democrats have to cheat: they are outnumbered. But the trick up their sleeve is the MSM, which shapes perception such that "progressives" are the many hip and conservatives are the few squares. But read comments on the you tubes, the yahoo threads, the comments sections on links to LA Times articles. Granted, you see a lot of entitlement liberal idiots, but you see a lot of pretty level-headed folks who understand what a load of crap big government liberalism actually IS, and it's starting to dawn on some of them that elections have gotten downright stinky in America lately.
"Grown-up" Republicans who think in terms of pragmatism and Santa Claus are condescending boobs who also think the majority of Americans are "children." They belong in Europe if they're going to badmouth my country that way.
These "grown-up" Republicans vote for the likes of Romney, ridicule "birthers" and "vote fraud conspiracy theorists," and like the good beta dogs they are, live in a world where going alpha is just too scary.
Thus the alpha politicians create a Banana Republic because so damned many so-called American conservative patriots have neither the vision nor the confidence in their principles to GO ALPHA.
You are correct about Romney. But it is the role of third parties to launch the unremitting assault on how Obama is radically changing the culture and forcing good and moral Americans from union households to minorities including blacks to accept an agenda that undercuts their family values and religious heritage. The MSM calls this “divisive” issues and cultivates a climate that pre-empts this attack. RINOs are the first to flee and unless third party groups pick up this baton, the race is lost. This is the singular reason for the stunning loss last Tuesday. To be sure there are others, and fraud is one of them but nothing is so decisive to explaining the extent of our electoral losses than the failure to bring up front and center the family values agenda.
We should boldly have framed the issue between God (with non stop videos of DNC delegates booing God) and descent into Sodom and Gomorrah. But being snakebit, our side refused to go there and we played right into a game played by “their” rules.
Before the election comments on yahoo articles and other major MSM sites that constantly ran pro Obama articles, being pro Obama, often ran about 12 out of 13 completely and wholeheartedly against Obama. The "likes" for comments against Obama were often into the 100s, and comments for Obama quickly disappeared, and were covered over because they had so many "dislikes".
During the last election the democrats ran their election based largely on propaganda, and covered the internet with comments that were pro Obama. You could tell that many in the same article were likely written by the same people with different handles. Conservative opinions were mocked to death. I am sure that the left had paid operatives to keep the internet covered with pro Obama comments, and to also horribly ridicule Conservative comments. The few supposedly Conservative oriented comments that got through were often racist and/or really nasty. It was obvious that they were also written by their operatives to mischaracterize Conservatives. Good comments I wrote were often not allowed in by what appeared to be bought Moderators.
My point is that Obama's campaign could have cared less about the vast hoards of anti Obama internet comments this time, and I believe it is because it didn't matter. He had this election sewed up, and he knew it, for the left had taken control of the voting machines. His campaign was a dog and pony campaign meant to smoke over the fact that they didn't even need a campaign, except to keep enough people who were obviously for him to throw off the fact that the vote was fixed, for merely the show. Also to keep his base somewhat activated and happy, in case they may be needed sometime in the future.
Also, since comments, when left unfettered by leftist control, ran so tremendously against Obama, even on the normal MSM operated sites, it is obviously that Romney likely won this election, if ran fairly, by a huge landslide. It wasn't at all because he was a great candidate, but rather because the public held a largely "anything but Obama" mind set. I don't think that Americans are nearly as stupid and immoral as we think, except to be duped by vast election fraud.
