It was a sobering dinner party last night... Hosted by a London billionaire in his exquisite home...but the conversation between the ten of us was stone-cold serious...
"You know what my biggest fear is?" our host asked. "It's not really Obama, for what he's done is to accelerate what the liberals have been slowly doing for decades -- so quickly that their socialism is obvious to everyone. Which means the solution is obvious to everyone. My biggest fear is that voters will give Republicans the power to repair America on November 2nd -- and the Republicans won't have the courage to do it."

Although it was written in 2010, its predictions have most eerily come true.
Here is the entire foreword written by Erickson:
Rarely does one simply reprint the work of another but in this case the content is so compelling, it warrants wide distribution and serious consideration. Few people seem to grasp how serious the situation has become, worldwide. Mock the Tea Party people all you like, but they may be our only hope.
If Romney is elected there will be no change, he has already said he wants to work with democrats.
And the mystery billionaire was correct: the worthless John Boehner not only didn’t have the courage, he actively aided the rats in their endeavours to destroy the economy.
What a grotesque disappointment.
I have no faith whatsoever in Republicans to actually change what must be changed to save this republic :-(
Newt Gingrich would change it! But alas, he will not win.
I do not count him as a republican, he is altogether different from what passes as a republican these days. He wears the party name simply because only the two parties have a real shot at placing someone in the white house.
Someone like Newt comes along only rarely, it’s a pity we have passed him over because he is imperfect. We shall soon think back to what might have been...and weep. :-(
FANTASTIC GRAPHIC !
When you go for an operation they sit you down first an explain the risks including “our medical tools might be dirty.”
But else can you do?
I think I’ll enlarge this, print that and put it in my car’s back window.
Love your tag line!
I know the pubbies have no courage scary how clear it is to anyone who can think
"It made me think of what you once told me - "in five years the Corleone family will be completely legitimate." That was seven years ago.
I know...I'm trying darling."
―Kay Adams and Michael Corleon
The American Declaration of Independence specifies a uniquely constrained purpose for American governance:
"TO SECURE THESE RIGHTS, governments are instituted among men"
To secure them from what; to secure them from the organized criminal human nature whereby the collective/tribal herd always historically gravitates toward the subjugation of the Individual?
Hmmm. Sounds regulatory. Wonder what The Godfather thinks of that?
The Problem as I see it with Romney is that he will be such a mediocre President that even if he does win he will be so middle of the road as to not upset the apple cart that the economy will not bloom and then in 4 years it will assure that the democrats take back power on the whole meme that the economy didnt recover.
Not to mention any GOP president is going to be so damned hated no matter how moderate they are. Mittens will get so damned gun shy that he will be ineffective and the MSM and the Democrat controlled media will smell blood and keep attacking him even as he retreats and this will paralyze him to what needs to be done to restore the economy and defuse all of Obamas horrible regulatory actions.
Newt is going to be hated like hell anyways and HE KNOWS THAT, but he also knows that he will have the people who put him there behind even if the Media doesnt paint it that way every night at 5:00pm.
So therefore, Newt (who thrives on antagonism instead of flinching from it) will take the bold measures to recover the economy despite being thrashed every night on the MSM news channels. In Four years the MSM will be flabbergasted like their were on election night in 1984, because the man on the street will notice the economy improvement.
Mitt is a Flincher, Newt is a Clincher
Definition of a Clincher:
a decisive fact, argument, act, or remark
Definition of a Flincher:
to withdraw or shrink from or as if from pain
We are so SOL if Either Mittens gets in or Barry gets a second term.
Mittens would only slow things down and then in four years the GOP would be blamed so much but with little to show we would still be in an economic malaise the likes of Carters worst dreams. This would GUARANTEE a Democrat Victory over the house the senate and even the presidency in 2016. They would not be pulling any punches as they would run someone that would make Obama look like a middle of the road moderate. Because they know they would have a very good chance of winning. Not to mention the class warfare game that could be played to Bolshevik conclusion during that election if we get Romney and mediocre performance out of him which is very much likely.
Of course Obama winning would be a very much nothing to lose second term that would see him likely either completely destroying the economy so badly that they play the game of Destroy and Support in that they would destroy the economy and then support the people as the great savior thus ensuring either Glorious Revolution or the mass construction project of making millions more so dependent that they will have a permanent grip on power that would only come undone with Blood sweat and tears, but mostly Blood and Tears.
ABO and ABR, because we really need Newt or maybe Santorum if we get desperate, heck I would even take, heaven forbid (I can’t believe I am saying this), Ron Paul over Romney for the reasons above.
So I repeat once more: Newt is the Clincher, and Mitt is the Flincher.
If Romney wins the nomination, then we’re going to have to throw the Whigs into the trashcan and settle on a Conservative candidate who can beat the other two.
Another problem is that the conservatives have been unable to get it together, either. There’s the libertarian faction and the pro-life, pro-family, pro-morality faction. They need to work together, but from all the bashing of candidates I’ve been seeing her for the past month or so, it doesn’t look as if they will.
We would need to settle on a single write-in candidate, on whom the Tea Party, the Catholics, and the Evangelicals can all agree.
The RINO-e guys got a write-in victory in Alaska with Murkowski, but they were tightly organized and bought the union and tribal votes. Well, this is it. We need to straighten out the morality of our country before it goes completely to the dogs—not by government decree, but by example and by persuasion and by help from the churches. And we need to shrink government drastically, not just make a feeble start.
It might almost be better to do it with a write-in candidate, who won’t owe anything to the Party, and can kick Boner and company to the curb.
That’s if Romney wins. But with the continuing division and foodfighting among conservatives, he probably will. And he would be absolutely delighted to keep Obama’s Czars right where they are.
If we don’t get Newt, nothing will change. I can see the man working 24/7 working to change obama’s executive orders and add a few of his own. This is what MUST be done or the downhill slalom will continue until we are dead.
Well, we aren’t going to get him, soooo....
It ain't over 'til it's over. Wait and see.
". . . and the Republicans won't have the courage to do it."This is a very real and possible danger we face. Between the RINOs and the spineless leadership within the Republican Party, there is a very real possibility that very little of the big government initiatives of Obama will be rolled back . . . especially with a big government conservative like Santorum or a big government moderate like Romney in charge.
I believe in miracles. This country needs a miracle desperately. No one else in this race will do what Newt can do. He will NOT play footsies with the dem leadership and he would tell boehner and mcconnell to go straight to hell if they tried. They might not like him, but he knows where the bodies are buried.
That's one of the boneheaded, backward things that sunk McCain. The time for "reaching across the aisle" may be over.
In Senator Jim DeMints new book, Now or Never, he says the following:
The differences between the Democratic and Republican Parties are irreconcilable: there can be no compromise between collectivism and freedom.
Indeed it is. It accompanied the original article without a credit to its very skilled designer, who should be patted on the back for that one.
It doesn’t matter what he will do or won’t do, he failed to sell primary voters on his candidacy.
If he cannot convince conservatives to give him the GOP nomination, how is he going to convince a country full of idiots to elect him president?
And who gave them these benefits? I don't have any employees who determine their own benefits, their own retirement, and sure as heck, they don't set their own salaries. Yet somehow a government employee can do this? I'm sorry, that's called embezzlement. Worse, the situation we have now, the rules to keep everything on the up and up, the congress going out of office votes for the salary and compensation for the congress coming into office.
What is that? A wink and a handshake for more embezzling? There is not a single congressman I'd pay more than a major's salary, nor a single senator that I'd pay more than a colonel's salary.
Even worse, these clowns whine that they can't afford two homes - one in Washington DC and the other back in their home district. Perfect solution - set up dorms for them, guarantee every congressman free travel to and from sessions. Because they don't represent Washington DC, they represent people back home, and that's where they should live. That's where their kids should be, their spouse, and their favorite easy chair.
And all these 'TEA' party congressmen didn't even start on this issue. Too many other distractions. The perfect symbolic moment - economy in a shambles, feds spending money -- well, can't say like water, as water vends for a quarter a gallon - like air, and still we're giving 50k a year benefits to the spouses of retired senators. It is just insane.
We need such as them now!
A ‘terrible’ leader could never have accomplished what Gingrich accomplished and none have done so since.
I just read this article all the way through. I agree with the content 100%. However, I doubt it’s authenticity. The dialouge is too convenient, like it is from a novel rather than from real life. The characters are from a movie; British Billionaire, Dutch Supermodel, Hollywood Mogul ? Maybe I watch too much TV or something, but this just doesn’t sound right.
From Obama’s political perspective, he was blessed in January 2011 with the shooting of Rep. Giffords. It focused eyes on the ‘evil’ of Republicans and their ‘targets,’ and away from what he was doing to the country overall. His and the Dems shameful response to that tragedy was shut down the GOP and the Tea Party whose candidates had just been seated the week before.
My pastor mentioned our enemies the Islamics again this morniing...
The fact that with Obama we are getting more and more freedoms for the Moslems in our country..
and less and less for Christians...
Romney wont stand up to the Moslems...
But Newt will...
As for the rest of your post regarding securing liberty, Mark Levin's new book Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America spells it out one step at a time from the earliest days of Western democracy what the strains of philosophy were that went into our Founding and how they differ from today's utter corruption. It is hard going at first, but soon becomes very inspirational to read:
That is my nightmare too. The GOP leadership just seems to be content to be the court eunuchs for Emperor Obama and have said or done little or nothing when Obama tramples on the Constitution with executive orders, does end runs around Congressional approvals and seeks to erode our Bill of Rights. I fear that Obama will be re-elected and withing four years become a dictator like Hugo Chavez.
He certainly takes credit for balancing the budget, but what spending was significantly cut besides Defense?
“And the mystery billionaire was correct: the worthless John Boehner not only didnt have the courage, he actively aided the rats in their endeavours to destroy the economy.
What a grotesque disappointment.”
He DID crawl out of his cave to criticize Limbaugh.....then he hid back in his cave again......
NO Newt....... Zero WINS...
And now we will have either a RHINO in office, or a socialist, either way it’s not going to change the status quo. Expect things to get a whole lot worse from here on out, especially this Summer and Fall with marxist all comming out of the woodwork to disrupt the daily lives of millions. I just pray every morning that Jesus Christ will come soon to sweep away the demons who were sent down here to destroy.
Add in - No - to get along, you go along.
But there was still a Democrat majority in Congress. We need to throw everybody out and start over.
We actually should be on their asses everyday; not just writing them letters and calling them, but CC-ing the media on every letter we write to elected officials. Give the media - no matter how slanted they are - some idea of what the people are saying they want from our public "servants"... now we have all the wonderful blogs and forums on the internet, not to mention viral email, so the pressure on Congress should be relentless.
Bears repeating, even though it can be very frustrating to receive their patronizing emails back from Congress lecturing you on how you ought to agree with them. You are right; just keep plastering them. Especially attending the face-to-face confrontations at Town Hall meetings. That really seems to get through to them, when their ridiculous lies are booed and the videos are posted on YouTube.
Then, after a couple of TEA party victory laps, it was all silent again. The brats in Congress retured to their mischief and the MSM laughed.
You are correct; the media has done everything it can to lie and distort and minimize and imitate. But as you noted, they still fear the Tea Party. Consider this: if we don't make our numbers public and do not demonstrate openly, the media may be lulled into thinking we have gone away, since they never venture out of Manhattan or DC. The key for Tea Partiers is to work strenuously, locally, and as much as possible, one-to-one, door-to-door, or online.
Quite so. Franklin also said, just after the Constitution was signed in Independence Hall, "A Republic, if you can keep it."
Mitt is a Flincher, Newt is a Clincher
I just hope the voters realize it before it is too late. They shouldn't fear a brokered convention. I remember the tussling in past conventions where the party actually made the decision on the floor. Screw the media and pundits who want to anoint now so they have more time to trash the Republican.
That is an excellent five-year prognostication. I think I'll file it away for future reference. Can't you just hear the Dems 2016 election pitch? "Bush drove us in the ditch. Obama was getting us out but didn't have enough time. Romney put us back in the ditch."
Sure there will be change - mittens will apply a nice coat of whitewash. ;-)
You really think he'd be THAT bad? Ewwww! Horrifying! Wouldn't there be pressure from whatever Cabinet Republicans he would have to appoint to get rid of these unconstitutional competitors for what should be the Cabinet's areas of oversight?
One should do it: "This executive order hereby declares null and void all executive orders and appointments made by Barack Obama."
Give them a chance to see the real need now and act accordingly. They have both lived to see the downside of ever-increasing government, and surely their constituents will scream for a rollback of socialism.

Bookmarked for reading. Thanks FRiend.
Times are hard now and they’re going to get a lot harder in the weeks to come.
Obummer and his Marxist buddies WILL NOT yield the high ground quietly. They’ve been working for decades to reach this point and victory (by their definition) is too close.
I expect to see some triggering event by September at the latest. Once the “bitter clingers” start shooting, Obummer can impose martial law and suspend the Constitution — then all bets are off.
We’re sitting on a powder keg, folks. Please complete your stockpiles — soon.
We all need to do this most critically important part of preparing for the election:
