In reflecting on Reagan and Romney’s role in the Republican Party, I drew inspiration from both men’s words. Never being one of those activists who leaned heavily on "what would Reagan do" to cheaply win an argument full of intellectual void, I couldn’t help but feel the very same conviction to rely on some of his words and formatting to argue for organized opposition to Romney’s nomination. We can do better in this primary. It’s time my fellow movement leaders take a public stand, lest they be responsible for very foreseeable ills that will pain our Party and the fight for real reform.
A Time for Choosing…
Those who would trade our principles for the bet of the compromising nominee have told us they can ensure victory without our nominee publicly endorsing reform policies. They call their policy “winning.” And they say if we’ll only avoid any direct harm to the nominee in waiting, he’ll come to our side, be convinced that the country truly is at a crossroads, along with our Party’s brand and learn to love us. All who oppose the nominee in waiting are given no refuge, no access, labeled as ideologues. They say we offer purist rhetoric to a complex election. Well, perhaps there is a purist answer—not an easy answer—but pure one: If you, here and now, have the courage to take a stand, say “Not Mitt Romney”… that we want a nominee who will fundamentally reform the financial burden our country is crippled with and have a core, we will win.
I haven’t said much about the elections. So far I keep hoping that Rick Perry or Herman Cain will come out the winner in these primaries. I truly believe it would be the worst thing for the United States If Mitt Romney wins the nomination. I don’t think he could beat Obama. If he did win the election, he would be Obama light. In the last election. I voted for John McCain. Not because I liked him. I never trusted him. Not for anything, it was because Sarah Palin was on the ballot. It Romney were to win the election, Obamacare would be permanent if not even worse. As a nation we cannot afford that to happen.
Mitt Romney is a flip flopper, he changes direction, depending on what direction the wind is blowing. I don’t believe that he is being honest in his campaign. He is an anti-gunner, pro-abortion to me he is an un- trustable politician. What politician is trust worthy? I would vote for Rick Perry, Herman Cain, space, Newt Gingrich or Ron Paul. We need anybody but Obama or Mitt Romney. We cannot afford either one of them. They will destroy this country even more so than it has been.
If Romney gets the nomination, I and a lot of other conservatives would be very tempted to just leave that check box empty. That would mean that we would have Obama for another four years. That would not be a good thing, but who to vote for the devil or the devil’s partner.
