Listening to all of the news broadcasts, it is easy to see that our candidate for the Republican Party has already been chosen. It’s either Newt Gingrich or Mitt Romney. So what do we have to worry about? Well, maybe the destruction of the Constitution and our great nation! Romney has never backed down on his support for the State Health Mandate he put into law and, the thing that bothers me the most about him is that, when the Party told him to back down from his run for President in 2008, he did, even though we all knew he was the only Republican candidate who had a possibility of beating Obama! And the reason he backed down was that the Party promised to support him in his run this year. To me; that makes him a “Party Politics” candidate! Gingrich gained the name “Newt the Hoot” back during the Clinton Administration because he “stood” for Conservative values, but waffled back and forth to please both parties. When the Republicans needed him to stand up, he did. And, when the Progressives needed him to waffle, he did! More has come out about him lately, including the fact that, in one of his books, he fawned support for a Socialistic Communist. He has supported more Progressive ideals in his life since he left Congress and he has been taped supporting Progressive ideals in several speaking appearances! So; we have two Progressives supposedly leading the run for President on the Republican side, and we are supposed to choose between them! Nuts!
So; what options do we have? Well, Ron Paul seems to carrying third place and he speaks plainly about the necessity of following the Constitution, which makes me look to him as a possible candidate. My only problem with him is his views towards Israel, because Israel is our only true ally in the MidEast, while the muslim people are rising up and taking over every one of their home countries! And we know that they will all wind up in a Muslim Brotherhood-style Caliphate, which will be a great danger to our country as Iran continues building its Nuke! Israel may be our last stand against any first strike by Iran, so we need to support Israel.
Michelle Bachmann is someone whom I have supported from the beginning. She is someone who wants to bring back the true Constitution of this great nation, and she speaks plainly about her views concerning our national safety. When she rose up in the polls, she was attacked because she “looked crazy” in a picture, which is total idiocy! A picture is a frozen-moment in time and we have all had bad pictures taken of us. They said she wasn’t qualified, that she didn’t have the experience, but she has more experience than many running right now! She served in the Minnisota State Senate. She is currently working in the House Permanent Committee on Intelligence, which makes her a overseerer of the CIA, the NSA and all of the other agencies that keep our nation safe from foreign threats! She has stood against Obama’s anti-American views from the day he took office. She fought the effort to create a “Global Currency”, which our Fed is now putting into place by buying up Euros with our American Dollars! She fought against Cap and Trade, Americorps, Obama’s Health Care Bill, and personally introduced legislation to repeal the Dodd/Frank Financial Regulatory Bill that will destroy our economy! Add to that; she has raised her own family, has raised children that she and her husband brought into their family, and she is a good Christian. So she not only knows about raising a big family, she knows about running businesses, as she and her husband started a Christian support business, which her husband now runs, she knows about State politics and National politics and has great experience in ensuring that our country is safe from overseas enemies! How can this woman not be qualified? And, unlike Romney and Gingrich, she has fought against any effort by the Progressives to destroy our economy and our country! I think we all need to give her a second look!
So; the Parties, both Republican and Democrat, have already decided that Gingrich and Romney are our only choices! Is that what we really want? The Primaries haven’t even started and they already know who should win! Well, guess what DC; the people are not your puppets anymore! We know what we need in our government and we have the votes! I think the worst thing that could happen right now is a third-party, as it will split the Republican vote and allow Obama to be re-elected! And I agree with the “anyone but Obama” idea when it comes to voting, but we need to make our own decisions and not follow along Party lines, simply because they have already decided who they want to win! We have good options still available; Perry, Bachmann, Paul and Huntsman; the primaries are where the people speak and the candidates are nominated, so vote for whichever candidate you want to win, let’s narrow down the field, then support whomever stands against Romney/Gingrich! I, like you, will vote for Romney or Gingrich to get Obama out, but I want to see them as the choice of the people first, not the Parties! This is the most important election in the history of our country! We need to do our own research on the candidates and ensure that, when we vote, it will be an informed vote! Don’t listen to the Parties when they keep names on the top of the list, listen to your heart and vote accordingly! We can’t screw up this time; we have to put the right people in office! Now is the time to be a true American and think of the futures of your children and families and speak your heart at the polls!
STAND UP AMERICANS, OR LOSE AMERICA!
