When it comes to this election, the most important election since 1860, far too many conservatives are asking the wrong questions or, I believe, taking the wrong stance.
It’s a problem born of far too many years and decades of complacency.
It’s exactly what liberals have been laying the groundwork for throughout those years and decades.
To avoid the trap, one must first realize there IS a trap, see the trap and then take the proper steps to avoid that trap.
As we are but 3 ½ months away from this election, the time is NOW to identify the trap and steer conservatives away from falling prey to it.
Conservatives…Put your bias aside and open your eyes. Open them WIDE and you too, will see through the darkness.
Here we go.
I hear and read far too many conservatives asking, regarding certain issues, “So…Who will do anything about it?” There are, of course, variations of this question. “Why won’t congress DO something?” “Congress KNOWS about this but they won’t DO anything about it.” “What good is it to point out what we all already know since nothing will be done about it?”
You get the idea.
Here’s the Deal…
Since when do we place the quest for solutions solely in the hands of Congress or “whomever?”
This is EXACTLY what liberal/socialists have groomed us to do….Place our trust in GOVERNMENT or…”whoever” rather than taking responsibility OURSELVES. After DECADES of being led to believe that NOTHING is THEIR fault…WE have adopted that stance.
Obama and the liberal/socialists whine about a “do nothing congress” and blame EVERYTHING on Bush or…”whomever” and what do WE do???
WE are now looking for Congress or, “whomever” to FIX it.
See the Trap?
Patriots…It’s NOT up to CONGRESS to fix the problems…It’s up to those who ELECT Members of Congress to FIX the problems with our…VOTES.
What’s it going to take to “fix” Obamacare? To “fix” border security? To “fix” the deficit? To “fix” out of control federal agencies? To “fix” tax hikes, bring about energy independence and all the other issues?
If we, as conservatives, elect a majority of conservatives to the Senate and maintain the majority in the House…who fixes the problems? WE do. And, if those we elect don’t “fix” the problems…WE can FIX that too by voting them out and voting new Members IN until we DO hire those who will take the proper direction from…US.
Look at it this way…
Let’s say YOU own a Pizza joint. Half of your employees want to make Greek food instead of Pizzas and half of the half that DO make pizzas, won’t use the right recipe for them. What would you do?
You would try to REPLACE those making Greek food and those using the wrong recipe and KEEP those following your directives. Right? Eventually…after several bouts of rehiring…the pizza joint that YOU BUILT…will become a success.
Members of Congress are OUR EMPLOYEES…Right? So…Keep the good ones and work to replace the BAD ones. Left to their OWN devices…YOUR pizzas will resemble GYROS…THEY won’t “FIX” the problem.
OTHER stuff I’ve Heard Far Too Much of Lately.
“Romney is no different than Obama.” “A vote for Romney is a vote for Obama.” “I’m going to vote for Newt or, Paul, or “whoever” but NOT Romney because I’m voting for liberty.”
“We’re going to have a brokered convention and MY candidate WILL get the nomination.”
First of all, the chance that we’re going to see a brokered convention is slim to none and, slim just rode out of town. If it happens, so be it but, don’t hold your breath or you’ll turn as blue as a New England state.
A week or so ago, I had a phone conversation with Samm Tittle. She’s running for President and she asked MY advice regarding an upcoming speech she was giving. She wanted to know how she could get people to vote for her.
Here’s what I told Samm.
She has the right ideas. She’s a constitutional conservative and I don’t disagree with her platform. I told Samm that because there will be 2 candidates with nationwide name recognition on the ballot in November, whether or not she makes it on a ballot as a 3rd party candidate or as a write in candidate…the BEST thing she could tell people in her speech was, “Hello. My name is Samm Tittle and I am discontinuing my candidacy for President effective immediately. I will also begin to put together an exploratory committee to run for congress in my home district and I would welcome your support for that congressional run.”
If you don’t think there is any difference between Romney and Obama…Rather than go into each and every issue…Consider this…
If we hire the right people in congress, a majority of republicans in both the House and the Senate…Guess What?
Romney will sign legislation passed by them into law.
Romney will sign a budget which is passed in the house and instead of being shelved in the Senate…passed there too.
Romney will, with the assistance of a willing congress, repeal Obamacare.
Romney WON’T bow to foreign leaders, WON’T turn his back on our allies, WON’T offer encouragement to our enemies and WON’T apologize for American exceptionalism.
Still think there’s no difference between the two?
If you, as conservatives, vote for Paul, Tittle, Dummet, Palin, Newt or “whoever” this November…congratulations…You will be stepping directly into the trap. Obama is COUNTING on you. YOU are his ONLY chance to win. ANY vote that SPLITS the vote is a BLUE vote.
Each and every vote for someone other than Romney helps Obama win and HE knows it.
The KEY Opens 2 Doors.
WE need to hire the right people to shift the balance of power in the Senate and maintain the current structure in the House AND weneed a republican president.
Should congress remain as it is today and Romney gets elected…nothing changes.
If congress remains as it is today and Obama wins…nothing changes except that it gets worse and the end of the republic is at hand.
If republicans are the majority in both the Senate and the House but Obama gets a 2nd term…He’ll just continue ignoring the advice and consent of congress and act as Emperor and the Constitution loses.
BUT…If the Senate and house are controlled by the right AND Romney is in the oval office…THINGS WILL CHANGE…see above.
Think of Romney as a 4 year hire, Senators as a 6 year hire and Members of the House as 2 year hires.
Keep close track of what they do and understand their reasons for doing what they do. DON’T leave them to their own devices.
Ride them like a rented pony.
Don’t get caught up in single votes. Look at the whole body of work for each and every one of them.
If they do a good job, extend their contracts.
If they don’t, fire them.
Restoration of Order.
Without a republican majority in the House and Senate coupled with a republican president, the republic falls.
It’s just that simple.
If WE begin to lead CONGRESS…Congress will lead the president.
That too is simple to understand.
Regardless of who we, as individuals believe is the perfect candidate for president, there IS no PERFECT candidate.
A simple truth.
Only ONE candidate will have the infrastructure, the momentum, the financial backing and the name recognition to adequately fight for and win the white house against Obama.
A simple fact.
That will be the GOP nominee.
Like it or not, a conclusive truth.
If we remain divided…we lose the republic.
An absolute truth.
If WE, as conservatives, UNITE with the GOP nominee…We don’t put up the mission accomplished sign but…
WE have STARTED the process.
Those who refuse to unite with the nominee are tap dancing through a mine field while wearing a blindfold and clown shoes…
And Obama is counting on you to take the rest of us with you to oblivion.
