And proving it won’t be voting for Mitt Romney any more than voting for John McCain did. The only good thing to come of his miserable candidacy was Sarah Palin (oh, and the slap upside the head when people finally figured out that ‘Hope & Change’). McCain was never a conservative, he was just the old guy Republican the GOP leaders foisted upon us. Today 70% of polled Republicans do not favor Mitt Romeny. He was a liberal governor of a liberal state (the most liberal state) and he authored Romneycare in Massachusetts.
Even not-so Sharpton calls Romney out!
Then why are the old guard Republicans (the national committee, RINOs and moderate Republicans) pushing Mitt Romney on us? And why are all these states advancing their primary debates? Because they want to shape the election and shorten the time frame for the 2nd tier candidates (Obama wasn’t even 2nd tier at this point in ’08) to build support.
Most of all, they don’t want a conservative (any more than they wanted Sarah Palin), they want a ‘big government’ guy who will be just like all the rest of them. This is what turns good candidates and voters off to politics. If you go with another big government guy there is no difference between the Dems and GOP. And BTW, if you had to venture a guess as to where the “un-sourced, anonymous” stories about Cain and sexual harassment came from, who would you point the finger at? I’m just asking.
The bigger point is, they favor a top-down, centrist government which can only come at the cost of our individual liberty. We need a conservative in favor of a smaller federal government, more states’ rights, fewer regulations and big time TAX REFORM! Ultimately, it may not be Herman Cain, but these are the ideals we should be looking for in a candidate to get America back to its greatness again.
