Thanks Jim. Your post 296 fleshed it out nicely.
We need to deny Romney.
You, and us together can start a spark of rebellion in the whole GOP.
It is not written in stone that Romney will be the nominee, no matter how much Fox News, Rove, Hume, and others say so.
We need to do all of the things in your post 296, and I wish you could post an amalgam of post 1 and post 296 as a new masthead for FreeRepublic.
This is where we can be the most effective right—deny Romney the nomination.
To me, sending Newt to Tampa opens all sorts of possibilities. I don’t worry about not having enough time between Tampa and election day to defeat Obama IF WE HAVE THE RIGHT CANDIDATE.
We agree Romney is the wrong candidate.
This election is too important to give up on yet. Newt, Sarah, West and other great conservatives can blow this convention wide open and change the course of history.
FreeRepublic changed the course of history before—in 1998 when you led the charge to impeach Clinton with the March for Justice, and again in 2004 when our beloved Buckhead blew the whistle on Dan Rather and the false Texas ANG letter——and maybe we are destined to change history again.
This spark of rebellion could light a flame that exposes the discontent with Willard across the country. We can deny the powers that be their Romney coronation.
A small fulcrum in the right place can move a lever in a mighty way. FreeRepublic can be that lever.
Newt is a long shot, but not an impossible one. You were for him once—are you still in?
To Tampa with Newt, and to Golub with Romney!
I’d be with Newt in a heartbeat if he can pull it off. He’s the best and most experienced conservative for the job of all running.
