Rove, Romney and the GOP-e loathe pro-life Reagan conservatism, loathe the small government tea party and set out to destroy them both. I hate to admit it, but they are succeeding.
As I see staunch pro-life conservatives and tea party patriots folding their small government tents in favor of Romney's GOP-e progressive, big government big tent, I can't help but see not only the end of the tea party, but the end of pro-life, pro-liberty conservatism within the Republican party. And if we cannot quickly recover, the end of liberty in America. America's great experiment in self-government by believers in life and liberty destroyed, not by the liberal progressive statists of the Democrat party, but by the liberal progressive statists of the Republican party. Where the statist Democrats have failed, the statist GOP-e will have succeeded.
There is absolutely no doubt that Romney's pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, pro-socialist healthcare, statist big government record is identical to Obama's. Once upon a time in the not so distant past, conservatives automatically shunned big government statists. The GOP-e and the malignant genius, Karl Rove, figured out how to outflank us and turn the GOP totally against Reagan conservatism and against pro-Life, pro-family, pro-small government conservatives. It's an engineered coup d'etat against traditional small government conservatism and it is deadly.
THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated. Britain, with an army to enforce her tyranny, has declared that she has a right (not only to TAX) but "to BIND us in ALL CASES WHATSOEVER" and if being bound in that manner, is not slavery, then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth. Even the expression is impious; for so unlimited a power can belong only to God.
The fear of Obama has turned many among us into squishes who will set the pro-life conservative movement back forty years or more by surrendering to the abortionist/homosexualist, statist progressive, big government, corrupt crony capitalist agenda within the GOP.
We should not fear Obama to the point we elect an overstepping statist just like him, we should be determined to impeach his usurping treasonous ass! We should shun the Gop-e, shun Karl Rove, shun Romney, shun all of the big government, big tent, RINOS who have taken over the GOP. Rather than surrendering to the big government forces, we should be working full-time to elect pro-life, pro-small government conservatives into the majority of elective offices throughout this great land. If ever there was a time for pro-life conservatives and tea party patriots to stand their ground, it is NOW!! SURRENDER TO STATISM? NUTS!!
With conservative majorities in the legislative branches of the federal government and in the majority of all state and local governments, we can impeach and remove or expel the traitors amongst us from their executive posts, their high benches or their legislative seats and reclaim our Liberty!!
I am shocked by the number of supposedly pro-life conservatives who would promote these abortionist/homosexualist statists and dismayed that so many tea party patriots would fold their tents. Romney is the natural biological father of the big government unconstitutional statist RomneyCare/ObamaCare program that was the spark that ignited the tea party. And now the tea party sadly seems to be on the brink of surrendering to him before the fight has even begun.
Not me. I stand firm for Life and Liberty!! No Obama!! No Romney!! NOT ON MY WATCH!!
And when Republicans nominate some like Paul LaPage, they win elections. After 2010, the state house, state senate, and governor went Republican. Also, in Maine there is no Lt. Governor. There are no state-wide state elections for anyone but the governor. All the other administration postitions such as Secretary of State are appointed by the combined membership of the state house and senate. Whichever party holds 50% +1 of the total house and senate membership, that part select all the state-wide offices.
All Republicans now!
Jim is right, Rush is right when we nominate conservative
tea part types we win elections!!
Well, one of them WILL be president for the next four years, the only question is which one. There are no other feasible options. For me, the choice, though sub-optimal, is crystal clear.
Count me among those who stand for Life and Liberty...

I’ve been trying to keep my mouth shut lately because I’ve grown tired of the RomneyBot attacks that come whenever I indicate my reluctance to vote for their boy. I can’t help myself though, when I see others getting attacked by the surrender monkeys.
OVER MY DEAD BODY!
Best scenario I can see is that Romney gets elected along with a majority in the House and Seante. THEN the Tea Party (and FR) has to REALLY kick into gear and make him aware that if he doesn't hold to the CONSERVATIVE AGENDA he will be OUT!
I'm afraid too many will sit back and think "Oh, everything is cool, there's a "R" in the White House."
They'll sit back and in 2014 the socialists will sweep in followed by a total takeover in 2016.
BTW, Have to wait until next weekend (because I had to spend a FORTUNE for the steering gear for my Durango, LOL!) but another donation is on the way!
Nor mine, Jim. If this the hill on which we die, it's a good place.
It’s one or the other. I am certainly not pro-Obama. I will vote for Romney. I do not believe Romney is a muslim communist. Why undermine the candidate who is running against a muslim communist? What do we gain by that approach?
Well Jim, it is going to be one or the other, no matter how much we might wish otherwise.
One of your very best call to arms. Please continue with the rallying cries. I for one am inspired by your messages and have received guidance and understanding because of your efforts and this forum for many years.
Take care, your friend, John Smythe
I think it’s worth asking whether it really is too late to put a conservative on the ballot for president. Look, we all KNOW that O-Zero’s attacks on Romney are complete BS. But Romney has shown he isn’t able to stand up to it. He looks weak and defensive. So, maybe this is an opening for us.
Romney cannot really just drop out of the race. That would be insane. But he could be asked to let the convention make the call about whether he should move forward. Conservatives could ask him to release his delegates to vote their consciences.
If those delegates still want him on the ticket and he gets the votes, then good for him (I guess). But opening the convention would provide an opportunity to really debate the direction of the Republican Party and maybe ... just MAYBE... allow a conservative/ Tea Party/ Constitutionalist/ patriotic/ Christian / non-socialist / free-market insurgency to gain control.
“Why whore yourself to Babylon? There is no real difference between Obozo or Mittens winning. Its not our fight. We lost when Mittens won. The only fight left is for the senate, the house, and for the soul of the country, which our enemies, who are many and in high places, will oppose us with all their strength.”
Well said Sir. Well said. Our fight is over at least where the presidency is concerned.
Just be sure to vote in those house and senate races as if they were the most important races in the world. They just might be.
If people want to vote for Romney, more power to them but I’m not going to.
TeaParty candidates are winning in the primaries.
Cruz is going to win his primary, a huge upset.
We have knocked off quite a few RINO's.
The GOP is getting the message and if they don't, a new Party will emerge.
Interestingly enough, the British are having the same problem with their tories.
