Inevitability And The 2012 Election

I got done with work this week, and I was/am in a bad mood. I walked into the house, and flipped on the tube, a ritual I have been in for years and years. Special Report has been my go to getting home news program as long as it’s been on. I’ve watched it throughout the election cycles since 1996, been with it through good and bad results, and never really had to be overly critical of the coverage I was seeing.

Until this election cycle, that is.

What I have seen this cycle has been more in-the-tank-for-the Establishment-GOP coverage than I ever remember.

When we look back at the last 2 election cycles what has been the one true defining situation that has come about? The rise of the Tea Party. That rise has thrown a monkey wrench into the politics-as-usual rise and fall of the Dems and GOP, threatening the status quo, and taking both entrenched sides off their games by having to account for the new variable.

November 2010 served as a wakeup call to the establishment GOP that the old ways of doing business were going to be shuffled off to the wayside in favor of a group of folks coming in that were no longer going to cave to the usual trappings of power to be gained by going along to get along. West, Rubio, and others were looking to be the vanguard of a movement that would start to set right the damage done from both sides of the aisle.

While a good start, the new guys have yet to unseat the entrenched power structure in the House, which is a shame because the existing “leadership” currently in the House have been a non-stop horror show of pussydom, refusing to either stand against the Administration in any meaningful way, or just rolling over and acting like a bunch of little bitches.

Fuck you, Boehner and Cantor.

You exemplify everything bad in the current structure. You cave like schoolgirls when it comes time to do something right, and then when you get called on it, you both blame your lack of having any vestige of a nut sack on the Senate. You both are the little bitches that got your asses deservedly kicked in high school, and went to the principal to cry about it, rather than taking your beating and learning from it. Or growing a set and fighting back.

Oops, did I say that out loud?

So anyway, the establishment GOP started to quash the movement during the 2010 cycle by trotting out Karl Rove and his little white board, trashing Tea Party candidates by saying shit like that winning elections by electing a RINO squish that will betray us is more important than standing on principle. That losing with a candidate that actually has principles has no inherent value. Well let me tell ya something pal, if you lose one seat with a candidate who stands up, the next cycle you have a record to run against.

The people who still adhere to the “Buckley Rule” are as much of a problem as the fucking Demonrats. We need to start drawing a line between the candidates we support, and those who represent the status quo.

Remember, the Establishment GOP has but one interest, to retain their power as long as they possibly can to continue lining their pockets. They don’t give a shit about you or your problems, and never did.

We, as conservatives need to take over the existing structure of the GOP and re-make it in the image of the Tea Party. The goals being limited Government, less regulation, dismantling useless agencies and pink slipping 1/3 of the Federal work force by shutting down the EPA, NLRB, FCC, Dept of Education. And any plan that does not include busting Federal Employee Unions is useless.

The interests of the “few” (The Senate and House) have overwhelmed the interests of the many. Nowhere is it becoming more apparent than in the punditry we see nightly. Kristol, Krauthammer, Rove are shills for the GOP establishment, and are spinning furiously to give us Mitt Romney as the most electable candidate we have. Fuck them. The good has become the enemy of the best.

And what has the GOP field done? Rather than drawing clear lines between themselves and the disaster that is the current POTUS, they fight amongst themselves, giving ammo to the MSM to use against them.

Look at the carnage incurred by the MSM currently, Cain gone, Bachmann gone, Perry on the ropes. Some committed suicide, like Pawlenty.

What are we left with?

Mittens, who in all reality is only slightly right of Beloved Leader.

Newt, who is a trainwreck in slow motion alternately slowing or speeding up his self destruction seemingly at random.

Huntsman, never a factor, never a player, looking for a tax deduction by bankrolling his own losing campaign, I’d wager.

Perry, shot himself repeatedly by making rookie mistakes, I thought he had some promise, despite being a “reformed Democrat”, looks to be all but out of it.

Ron Paul, entirely too flawed in foreign policy to be considered for the general election, hurts all of us by not stepping down and throwing his support behind the most principled candidate we have left.

Rick Santorum, who most closely represents the majority of non-coastal America. Out of what we have to choose from this is the best of the rest. Therefore, the only logical choice at this time is Rick Santorum.

So screw the rest of the talking heads, get behind Santorum, perhaps we can move this guy into being a contender.

Is Mittens the inevitable candidate? He well may be, if so, more than likely he will be the last of the old GOP’s hand picked candidates. Will I hold my nose and pull the lever for him? Yes I will. I did it with McLame, and I will do it again.

The danger we face as a country is real, and one election will not fix it. Chances are I will not live long enough to see the USA restored to it’s Founding Principals.

The true prize for the citizens of the US is taking the Senate by a filibuster and veto proof majority. Holding and increasing the numbers in the House to offset any remaining RINOs.

At that point, we control the power to legislate, and hold the purse strings. POTUS will be rendered impotent by having a veto-proof majority, and SCOTUS will be able to be overturned by legislation.

That’s a scenario I can get behind.

I AM A FREE MAN!

Be seeing you!

    I share your anger. I'm with you, except for the Santorum part. I thought I might vote for him if I had a gun to my head (although I don't think he's nearly as conservative as he wants us to believe), until I learned that his campaign sent out an anti-Bachmann email in the summer decrying a woman being in the Oval Office. Okay, on to the next one that I might hate the least…Brainfreeze Perry (who I also believe isn't as conservative as people might think). If he hadn't upstaged Bachmann on more than one occasion…maybe…and it weren't for the potential Obama ads morphing W's face with his…or that Perry makes W look like Einstein. Basically, I don't have a choice this cycle. Barring some disaster that again showcases Obama's incompetence and inertness, I believe all of them will lose badly in November.

    What is most frustrating are the legions of voters being bamboozled by Romney (and the beltway elitists), who I believe will go down in flames in 296 days. Ahead in SC, FL, and AZ? Yikes. And Human Events has an article today saying people across America are becoming more conservative. Yeah, right.

    Bro,I also 'share your anger. I'm with you, except for the Santorum part'.
    But yeah i myself have been noticing the past 2 weeks especially how in the bag for Mitt FoxNews has become.
    It amazes me that the establishment have completely forgotten what happened in the '08 Presidential election and why it happened.it's also as if the TeaParty movement and it's results never happened.
    sitting here scratchin' my head.

    I concur with your anger but to call Paul flawed I find misguided, provided you believe in the U.S. constitution. I would absolutely vote 3rd party over Santorum, and the republican party could be in jeopardy of losing the entire libertarian-leaning wing. I find Santorum's positions on several federal government vs. personal liberty matters absolutely frightening. I really don't understand what is becoming of the Republican party and their view of the constitution. They want to take it and line item it to support a robust foreign policy. The party of small government should be the party of limited military engagements, should it not? Paul is the only candidate not coming across as bi-polar. It's time for the contradicting GOP'ers to stand up and decide, do you believe we should follow the constitution or not? Our foreign policy should be that simple.

    ARTICLE 1, SECTION 8

    The Congress shall have Power:

    To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;
