First there was the Reagan Revolution, then Newt's Republican Revolution, and now the Tea Party Revolution.
In each successive revolution, the lovers of liberty threw off a bit more of the yoke of the oppressive ruling class to reestablish some vital part of our God given liberty and freedom.
Pro-life, small government, big defense Ronald Reagan set and accomplished the goal of bringing down the socialist Soviet Union as a threat to the world and reestablished free America as the dominate superpower. He rescued America from the hapless Jimmy Carter who had dragged the nation down into to the depths of despair. Reagan taught us that our best years were indeed yet to come. He reinvigorated our economy by reducing government regulations and taxes and created a free market environment ripe for capitalism to flourish. A lover of life and freedom, he fought off the socialists and merchants of doom and death at every turn and sparked the beginning of the decades long Reagan Economy. He was a champion of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness and he delivered us from evil.
Pro-life, small government, big defense Reaganite, Newt Gingrich, set and accomplished the major goal of wresting the congressional majority away from the socialist Democrats who had held it for forty years. His conservative Republican Revolution cut the taxes, cut the spending, cut the deficit, cut unemployment, blocked President Clinton's progressive agenda, blocked HillaryCare, reformed welfare, defended life, and balanced the budget four years running, ensuring that the Reagan Economy flourished and stretched throughout his term and beyond.
Mitt Romney set goals of protecting and sustaining abortion as safe and legal in America. He sought to be more radical than Ted Kennedy in respects to "gay rights." He swore to defend Massachusetts' strict gun-control laws that "kept us safe" and promised not to chip away at them. He set and accomplished the goal of bringing big government healthcare solutions to his state and mandating that all formerly free citizens must purchase a government approved product or suffer a tax penalty. He loves mandates against the people.
He stated that he was an independent during Reagan-Bush and he was not returning to Reagan-Bush. And he didn't. Instead, he delivered taxpayer funded abortion, gay marriage, gun-control, socialized healthcare, busted budgets, ruined economy, liberal activist judges and a destroyed Republican label.
Romney was and is demonstrably per record an anti-Reagan, pro-big government, pro-abortion, pro-gay agenda, pro-gun-control, anti-liberty, pro-socialist healthcare, mandate-loving, liberal judge appointing, budget busting progressive.
He is without a doubt the exact opposite of Reagan, Gingrich, the Reagan Revolution, the Republican Revolution and the Tea Party Revolution.
If the Tea Party now embraces Romney, it will have accepted defeat and surrendered to the ruling class.
There is a reason why the elite establishment GOPers are pushing the anti-Reagan Romney and rejecting the pro-life, Reaganite Newt Gingrich. And I guarantee you, it's not in the best interest of the Tea Party or the Liberty we seek.
Not on my watch!! No Romney, no way!!
Rebellion is brewing!!
You bring up something I had thought of when I heard that news. I would be surprised if it didn’t go that way.
you say: “Ditto for NEWT “THE PROGRESSIVE”
Saying a thing doesn’t make it so -
Newt didn’t have spend $100,000 to bury his record in office - as mitt did
Why isn’t the press going after him on this?
AMEN and AMEN!
"A Republic if you can keep it."
Well, can we keep it?
In theory, I agree with you. But this SEC Civil Fraud suit was just filed yesterday. The MSM hasn't even had time to react yet or even beginning to connect the dots of a storyline between Syron & Newt. Give it a few days.
And this is just a Civil Fraud Suit against Syron. Wait. "The BB Swami" says that Newt/Syron & Freddie Mac connection stories will start showing up soon, then there will be a criminal indictment of Syron, then it will start really drawing Newt political blood.
My bet is that Newt could well be public relations roadkill somewhere between Iowa and New Hampshire....
Again, I could be wrong, they could do nothing to Newt, but I wasn't wrong about Cain, from Day 1, start to finish while everyone else was attacking his accusers and acting like they weren't credible to anyone.
Obama = enemy You've established this and we agree.
RINOmney = supposed friend who will stab you in the back. Here's where you begin to lose rationality. When you say, "supposed friend who will stab you in the back" you're really saying, "known enemy". That is you've already defined Romney as an enemy and a tactic once understood is no longer a tactic. Do you follow that so far?
Now the real equation is:
Obama = enemy
Romney = supposed friend who will stab you in the back = enemy
Obama = enemy = Romney.
Now you are an anti-Mormon bigot which is why this doesn't seem clear or rational to you. Bigotry does that to the rational mind, hence the irrationality of bigotry. Now I don't expect you to understand this, so have someone who's not an anti-Mormon bigot, but who you trust and see as rational explain this to you before replying again. Do you know someone like that who can help you?
I wonder what would play better in the general election, Newt saying he believes in home ownership or Mitt Romney’s housing recovery plan based on accelerating foreclosures. Can we say Mr. out-of-touch Wall Street corporate raider...
Mitt “Millions” Romney:
“One is, dont try and stop the foreclosure process. Let it run its course and hit the bottom, allow investors to buy up homes, put renters in them, fix the homes up, and let it turn around and come back up.
The Obama administration has slow-walked the foreclosure processes that have long existed and as a result we still have a foreclosure overhang.”
A tea-partier who embraces Romney is the equivalent of a pro-choice Catholic—the embodiment of cognitive dissonance.
Think on this - No. One, Newt will not be led into that old debate format...
And in the general - they will both be running with their VP running mate.
So - who goes up against Plugs?
Newt has expressed he’d like Col. Allen West for his Veep. Now see that ticket in your head. The country will be electrified. Two erudite historians, pro-military, knows who our enemy is and isn’t afraid to go after them, solid Constitutionalists and back down to NO ONE.
Plugs and O’bummers knees will be shaking and their brains will turn to mush - well, mushier.
You want your REVOLUTION?
WRONG! One answer is ROMNEYCARE. You know nothing about Conservatives with a post like that.
I can’t wait to see B.O. get “Newt-ered” in the debates.
Well, Mitt has already lost a Senate race, lost a presidential primary, and become so unpopular as governor that he didn’t even try to run for a second term (the Democrat won the governorship for the first time in about 20 years after him). I guess after all that it is Mitt’s turn to lose a national presidential race. He’s already lost everything else.
I see the t-shirts now. “Newt-er B.O.”
