The day the tea party embraces Mitt Romney is the day the tea party accepts defeat
Vanity | Dec 17, 2012 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 12/17/2011 12:08:08 PM PST by Jim Robinson

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!!

The word needs to be spread far and wide on exposing Romney for what he is, because the MSM isn’t gonna do it.

What are the best way(s) to accomplish this?

Did you ever read the story of the Roman Emperor Constantine.

He was a pagan ruler who became a Christian and made Christianity the official religion of the Eastern part of the Roman Empire when Christians became the largest religion.

If conservative Republicans vote for Romney they will own him. He will be compelled to pay back those who voted for him.

Advice: Vote for a Republican Senate and then vote for Romney. That’s the best shot conservative Republicans have at gaining true transformative power. And you would squander it by not voting for Romney ??? Be wise as a serpent and innocent as a dove.

That was a great piece!

It is a wonder how all comes clear when one pays heed not to hearsay and innuendo but to the factual record of what these men actually did. It is only through obfuscation that Romney can stand on the same stage with Gingrich and claim that he is a conservative.

“Vote for a Republican Senate and then vote for Romney”

I’ve been voting “Republican” for the last 30 years and it hasn’t worked very well—they seem to think they owe their voters nothing. I’m changing my views and will only donate and vote for true “conservatives” now and will donate like crazy to disenfranchise people like Barbour who took advantage of the TEA party’s largesse and then turned around to screw them with her endorsement of romney.

What if Romney eventually becomes the GOP nominee, and in Nov. '12 it's either him or another 4 years of America's Chickens Coming Home to Roost?

Should the Tea Party very begrudgingly mumble some kind of wet napkin support for Romney, or write off the White House and focus on Conservative House/Senate candidates to thwart the Executive Branch?

Just askin'

What the Tea Party needs is to pack the Congress with like minded conservatives. They can’t bank on making change with the President. They aso need to widen membership and teach their members to thicken their skin against the racists, leftists, and feminists who will call them all kinds of vile names. The Tea Party needs to awaken the middle class to defend itself. Make the wind blow and even your hated Mitt Romney will bend your way.

Until we get a candidate who is believable, consrvative and likeable, the country will remain divided and volnerable. Herman Cain was that man, and they knew it, so they shot him down with viscious lies and death threats. Obama won re-election on December 3!

Newt or Romney even Ron Paul—who sleeps in the White House isn’t as important as taking the House and Senate—It needs to be a tea party Congress! First Congress, then the state houses! and the Media—then the White House—and then THE WORLD! Today the pits, tomorrow the wrinkles—Sunsweet marches on!

Excellent point and one that bears repeating.

I’m not spending anything on the Presidential race. The field ranges from iffy to horrible. I’m saving my bucks to spend on Congressional races where we have a chance to turn the tide.

I suggest we all do the same. Congress is where we can override Zer0 or a capitulating RINO.
