It would have become real nasty though that was what I was wanting for the 2 ideologies to completely collide. These other games that are being played by outside personalities is just noise. The two parties had to fight, head to head. We just didn't get that this time. After Newt's crushing win, in South Carolina, all deals and pay offs came out to stop him. The Republicans have got the moderate wing in power until they let/or we take it from them the Tea Party come in at the table to be in leadership, they will never modernize. They have to listen to Newt or someone like him with the experience. The R's are losing. The C's win.
I absolutely agree with you. I wanted a straight up fight. Win or lose, I wanted our principles on the table.
Too many Repubs run from their supposed principles, hoping to get elected by hiding what they supposedly believe in, sneaking in the back door. When you win that way you have no mandate and you haven't persuaded the electorate.
I wanted someone who could lay out the case for liberty, and if you do that and lose, at least you lost making your case. The only way to turn the country is to articulate your case and over time the truth of what you say becomes irrefutable. But if you never make the case, you never persuade anyone.
I'm looking to see who stands up right now to carry on the fight. It isn't anyone presently in office, it doesn't look like. Good grief, they reelected Boehner as speaker. They really don't get it.
Newt had a lot to do with his own defeat. When he came out and slammed Romney on Bain Capital he was indistigusible from the occupy wall street crowd.
I like this guy: Bill Whittle..........he and Newt would be a great team. watch his Q&A video in that site, he plays the Virtual President. He knows his stuff, as well as NEWT.
Newt could have cost us the House.
He couldn’t even beat Romney because he was ran such and awful race.
Never mind that he’s barely to Romney’s right if at all.
Newt’s a progressive too.
You and me both brother. When Newt was phased out I began to realize we were "screwed" whatever happened.
