Mark Levin Gives "Unvarnished Truth" On Romney Loss
RealClearPolitics ^ | 11/7/2012 | Mark Levin

Posted on 11/08/2012 4:34:19 PM PST by mojito

MARK LEVIN: We conservatives, we do not accept bipartisanship in the pursuit of tyranny. Period. We will not negotiate the terms of our economic and political servitude. Period. We will not abandon our children to a dark and bleak future. We will not accept a fate that is alien to the legacy we inherited from every single future generation in this country. We will not accept social engineering by politicians and bureaucrats who treat us like lab rats, rather than self-sufficient human beings. There are those in this country who choose tyranny over liberty. They do not speak for us, 57 million of us who voted against this yesterday, and they do not get to dictate to us under our Constitution.

We are the alternative. We will resist. We're not going to surrender to this.

We conservatives are outnumbered, the schools and media have been controlled by the left for at least a generation, the marxist takeover is well underway. Check out the Yuri Bezmanov interview on Youtube.

Not true, 35% of the country claims to be Conservative, 41% Moderate and 24% off of their rocker - Romney didn’t articulate fiscal conservatism very well.

Most of us conservatives have God.
They have rampant drug abuse, promiscuity, abortion, free birth control pills, drive by shootings, and bad judgement.
How long can they outnumber us?

I’m glad he is maintaining clarity of purpose.

I must say I was shocked to read the surrender threads over at Hot Air. They sound like a load of GOP consultants in their willingness to become Democrat Party II.

Selling out principles is what the left are after. Why help them?

It doesn’t matter if we’re outnumbered. We’re the producers, we’re the people who make this country a success. And when we put our minds to it, we can accomplish anything.

I think so too. Most people live as fiscal conservatives. That's just how the world works, especially at the household and individual levels.

Romney had moments, but he's not a consistently good salesman for party ideology or one who could sell to any crowd. He could have done it, but if he has them, those skills are too rusty to get it done.

Once people have been sold on a lie, unless the lie is countered, candidates don't win. We've been conned by one of the better actors with the media in a strong supporting role.

Perhaps a good start would be producing nothing.

Think about that for a bit.

"The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us.
Hitler knows that he will have to break us in this island
or lose the war. If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be freed
and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands.

But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States,
including all that we have known and cared for,
will sink into the abyss of a new dark age made more sinister,
and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science.
Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves,
that if the British Empire and its Commonwealth
last for a thousand years, men will still say,
'This was their finest hour.'"

- Sir Winston Churchill

Marxists totalitarians have never been the “majority”, they take over via conspiracy, deceit, and criminal action. The overcome by force and enslave the gulible, like Democrat voters and unaware moderates. We must
fight them or die, it is as simple as that.

The country has passed the tipping point. A majority are takers and will always vote for those who will give them the most goodies. Ultimately it happens in every democracy ( we morphed from a republic to a democracy long ago). We are in Tytler’s penultimate stage; next is tyranny. It is just a matter of time.

“Western thinking has become conservative:
the world situation should stay as it is at any cost;
there should be no changes. ....
The communist regime in the East could stand and grow due to the enthusiastic support
from an enormous number of Western intellectuals who felt a kinship and refused to see
communism's crimes. And when they no longer could do so, they tried to justify them. In
our Eastern countries, communism has suffered a complete ideological defeat; it is zero
and less than zero. But Western intellectuals still look at it with interest and with
empathy, and this is precisely what makes it so immensely difficult for the West to
withstand the East.”

[Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn at the Commencement, 8 June 1978, Harvard University]

You people must not have ever studied under communists. Communism for the world was inevitable. There was simply no arguing with them. As sure as the sun came up, the world was going to be communist. Then, China and Russia started fighting. Then Vietnam invaded Cambodia. The Soviet Union fell apart. China doesn’t look anything like the old China of Mao. What happened? Well, it turns out that communism wasn’t inevitable. The grifters who thought they could do better under communism turned out to just be grifters. There is no inevitability out there for the United States. We just have grifters who think they can make money talking about inevitability. We have grifters running the Democrat party. You want to know what’s inevitable? The grifters get found out, that’s what’s inevitable.

“Most of us conservatives have God. They have rampant drug abuse ...”

God who teaches us disclipine and morality and that there’s good and evil.

We worry that the herd of animals can become a voting majority and install a ruinous government. Our hope is that the herd will be the weakest, dumbest part of the population and that that will limit their voting power and their ability to sustain themselves. Also, the government they vote into office won’t be able to sustain itself.

Cher probably thinks she is a conservative. Nancy Pelosi truely believes she is a moderate... the mentally deficient over at DUmmy land, however, proudly consider themselves part of the last category.

Self-proclaimed conservatives are usually no such thing. I think Reagan, the greatest conservative of them all, was just a moderate.

Romney lost for three reasons.

#1 - He was already known to be a moderate and did not inspire the base conservatives.

#2 - He is a Mormon. Personally I don't care what religon a politician practices as long as they have integrity BUT there were a large number of "Christians" that couldn't bring themselves to vote for him.

#3 - He could not carry the population centers. The states that carry the large number of electoral votes will vote Democrat every time UNLESS the another candidate can convince them otherwise. Romney could not do that.

Far be it from me up Canada way to venture forth but I was thinking along certain lines.

How many times in recent history have ordinary people been intimidated by those who are the merchants of guilt? Affirmative action and the rest of it.

Since the people who really are the movers and doers of society, are white working class and white lower middle class, they have an untapped power. The administrative class, the politicians, the bureaucrats, are all very productive in their way (maybe). Take away the services and they are reduced to helplessness.

I see how the twin cities where I live at the Ontario-Michigan border, manage to survive old man winter. It is the power and service people, the snow plow people, the people who get out there in a frozen morning. Medical people, store clerks and many others.

If ever those people, or even one quarter of them, decided they were being treated as second class citizens and refused to work for one day or two...... oh well perish the thought!

Your post regarding Winston Churchill.

Yet somehow they kicked him to the curb and voted for the socialist quick as they could.....

How I do remember. It was the press. All conceded that the depression of the 1930's was a blot on human existence. This was so in America. The big cold chilling fear was unemployment. England worked and the war drove up employment.

The Sunday newspaper published a cartoon of a poor, gaunt woman. She was on her knees scrubbing a floor. Her thin face was strained. Churchill and his crew would bring this back, was the inference. Maybe the hard old rotters of the Tory party were best removed. Younger Conservative people were coming to the fore.

I came back from National Service overseas, when Churchill got back in after five years. Unemployment? Jobs were plentiful when I left five years later. The leftist press had absolutely labelled Churchill with deliberate unemployment policies. All speculation and lies.

Chicago style politics —you can’t win if the election is close. It has to be a blow-out or they will find a way to “win.” I think they knew they had it in the bag for awhile. Why would a president show up for a debate completely unprepared if he thought he was in the fight of his life? Why would a vice-president do his best Nicholson Joker impression if he thought he was in danger of losing an election? It all seems suspicious now.....

Agreed. So, what next? When Levi says we have to resist, he is short on specifics. I don’t think any country would allow my husband and me to immigrate because of our age, but if things continue to go downhill, I hope our kids and grandchildren can find a place where there is still some freedom. I just don’t know where that is.

The Great one is the only talk show host I will listen to. He tells it like it is, unlike so many of the others.
And he’s not trying to entertain...He is BRILLIANT.

Hannity and his liberal callers,,ie Velma. Come on. What a joke.
And Beck giggling on with Stu and Pat. What a waste of time.
The rest are back benchers.
Oh, and I do like Mark Belling in Milwaukee..He’s a sub for Rush sometimes.

Rush seems scattered lately. I have trouble listening to him..He doesn’t seem to have his thoughts together.
I’ve heard that his hearing loss is a bigger issue for him that he lets on.

MARK LEVIN: "We conservatives, we do not accept bipartisanship in the pursuit of tyranny."

I am totally puzzled by this quote.

Wouldn't it be clearer (make more sense) as "We conservatives, we do not accept tyranny in pursuit of bipartisanship?"

Sorry to say I can not advise on how best to avoid the consequences of this inevitably coming. I do know the western democracies are in the dependency stage. What follows next is dictatorship, tyranny either openly or falsely disguised as democracy. Democracies in Western Europe and in the Americas have past the tipping point. There is no going back. Neither Thatcher nor Reagan could be ever be elected again.

The takers will continue to elect their Santas and demand more goodies from the doomed governments. Appeals to reason,the Constitution etc... will fall on deaf ears and will be mocked. The end will not be in the hands of the voters or their elected officials. Rather, as in the Wiemar Republic, Argentina, Greece, etc... It will be forced by the creditors who will cease to fund the the unfundable. Each country will experience its own death rattle but on a date uncertain. One wants to be optimistic and fight the good fight, but our Alamo has arrived. The outcome has been determined.

Claiming to be conservative is not the same thing as actually being conservative. Some people think tightening up the rules on qualifying for an “EBT” card is conservative. A REAL conservative thinks there should not be and never should have been such a thing. Some people think asking for ID before allowing someone to vote is conservative. A REAL conservative would disqualify anyone who cannot demonstrate the ability to read, write and understand the constitution in ENGLISH or who is not a tax paying property owner. Just my personal opinion of course but it was once the mainstream opinion in this country and I think it was for good reason. The results of changing our thinking are obvious and not good.
