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!!
JIM JIM JIM..Ann Coulter said on F&F this am that Romney doesn’t NEED the Tea Party. He’ll get the soccer mom’s and moderates! /s
Excellent Jim!! Romney is just like Obama except he has a lil more white in him... Go Newt!!!
She has turned into a first class IDIOT! When I watched her on Hannity and she said Bachman and Romney were the only 2 conservatives, that did it for me. Romney a conservative? HAHAHAHAHAHA! Ann, has lost her mind.
EXACTLY!!!! and I do NOT think Romney has much chance of winning the nomination. Romney would wimp out in a debate with Barry Hussein, I can assure you, Newt will not and he isn't afraid to call him what he is.... an Alinsky radical.
HA! That’s a good one.
Really? Remind me who nominates Supreme Court justices and how often Congress refuses to confirm them. Do you have any idea of the devastating result of another 4 year term for Hussein and what if he gets one or two more progressive nuts on the Supreme court. That will be the end of America as you know it for you, your children, your grandchildren, and maybe forever.
Some Freepers say the Bush's weren't conservative, that may or may not be true but look at their picks compared to Hussein's and Clinton's. It's pretty apparent that the court usually doesn't follow the Constitution or law and votes party. Now... look at the list below and what do you think will happen to our country of he gets to replace 2 Republican appointees. What blows my mind is that nobody here seems to care. Their hatred of GOP candidates surpasses the hatred of people hell bent on destroying future of this country as we have known it. It also amazes me that on DU, KOS, etc. all the libs are obsessed with getting him re-elected BECAUSE they pray he can stack the court and their mission will be accomplished. They can see into the future and they want it bad. Apparently some here only have time to attack the GOP candidates and honestly, I question their motives.
So we have:
Roberts- Bush- age 56 Scalia- Regan- age 75 Kennedy-Regan- age 75 Thomas- Bush- age 63 Alito- Bush- age 61 and Ginsburg- Clinton- age 78 Sotomayor- Hussein- age 57 Kagan- Hussein- age 51 Breyer- Clinton- age 73
Choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil.
This is true and I don’t think it’s even an issue because I don’t think Romney will win the nomination....BUT rest assured NONE of the GOP candidates, not even 9/11 truther Ron Paul are more evil than that POS marxist Kenyan Muslim
that is usurping the WH. NONE OF THEM and remember who gets to appoint nominees to the supreme court. That is my worst fear and it’s what every DUmmie and KOS kiddie talks about every day. IF he gets re-elected and IF he can stack the SC, their work is done for generations, maybe forever. I will vote for whoever wins, I will not sit home. No more Marxists or progressive judges interpreting the Constitution please.
And choosing the greater of two evils is still choosing evil.
When left to those two options, I will choose the lesser. To do otherwise is to deny reality.
That being said, I honestly don't know if I could ever vote for Romney. And considering my above comment, that's saying something.
Obama = 1/2 White, 1/2 Black, and a member of the DIMS.
About the only differences in my mind.
Who was the guy who engineered a takeover of the House...by the GOP...that the DIMS had held for 40 FREAKING YEARS!!?!?!!?!?!?!
Absolutely!! No Romney, no way, ever!!!
Are you going to be on the Tea Party Patriots | Forum country-wide conference call this afternoon, 5pm EST?
They have Newt, Bachmann, and Romney scheduled for interviews/questions. Hope you have some input there, Mitt would be a slower extension of Soetoro/Obama!
Thanks for your guidance.
Thank you Jim, agree 100 percent.
Besides McPain, AZ has also given us Sandra Day O’Connor, Janet Napolitano, Bruce Babbitt, Dennis DeConcini, and an assortment of others we could have done without. Not a helpful state
Adding also at this point, I’m not entirely in the Newt camp, but he’d definitely have my support and vote if he is the GOP nominee. If the establishment is successful in forcing the GOP version of John Kerry on us as our nominee, then the GOP and Romney can both go pound sand when it comes to my vote for President in November.
The weekend media reports seem to be saying that Gingrich has peaked and is now joining the former Bachmann and Cain “surges.” It’s still Mitt’s turn, they say, with Ron Paul still threatening mischief on the sidelines The surge missed all the others, including Santorum and Huntsman.
Not with the kind of Republican congressmen we have now who are in the tank for Boehner and McC
The SS Judges—the reason he had to vote for Dole, for McCain, and now Mittens. The Old SS argument— it works and it will force the Tea Party to support MItt Romney for President—just as the other side will us the vote—for—the Democrat or Abortions will be made illegal by rabid Republicans. I have been FOOLED too many times! The old arguments are not working. I would rather Obama and a Tea Party Congress than Mitt and a Democrat Congress/Senate. Congress CAN not confirm the nut case judges—its just that the GOP will roll over—Dems will not they will Bork any nomination they don’t like. The Tea Party must learn from them! We need to stop being so nice! This is why Rino Mitt will LOSE to Obama. The Fix is in.
