First there was the Reagan Revolution, then Newt's Republican Revolution, and now the Tea Party Revolution.
In each successive revolution, the lovers of liberty threw off a bit more of the yoke of the oppressive ruling class to reestablish some vital part of our God given liberty and freedom.
Pro-life, small government, big defense Ronald Reagan set and accomplished the goal of bringing down the socialist Soviet Union as a threat to the world and reestablished free America as the dominate superpower. He rescued America from the hapless Jimmy Carter who had dragged the nation down into to the depths of despair. Reagan taught us that our best years were indeed yet to come. He reinvigorated our economy by reducing government regulations and taxes and created a free market environment ripe for capitalism to flourish. A lover of life and freedom, he fought off the socialists and merchants of doom and death at every turn and sparked the beginning of the decades long Reagan Economy. He was a champion of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness and he delivered us from evil.
Pro-life, small government, big defense Reaganite, Newt Gingrich, set and accomplished the major goal of wresting the congressional majority away from the socialist Democrats who had held it for forty years. His conservative Republican Revolution cut the taxes, cut the spending, cut the deficit, cut unemployment, blocked President Clinton's progressive agenda, blocked HillaryCare, reformed welfare, defended life, and balanced the budget four years running, ensuring that the Reagan Economy flourished and stretched throughout his term and beyond.
Mitt Romney set goals of protecting and sustaining abortion as safe and legal in America. He sought to be more radical than Ted Kennedy in respects to "gay rights." He swore to defend Massachusetts' strict gun-control laws that "kept us safe" and promised not to chip away at them. He set and accomplished the goal of bringing big government healthcare solutions to his state and mandating that all formerly free citizens must purchase a government approved product or suffer a tax penalty. He loves mandates against the people.
He stated that he was an independent during Reagan-Bush and he was not returning to Reagan-Bush. And he didn't. Instead, he delivered taxpayer funded abortion, gay marriage, gun-control, socialized healthcare, busted budgets, ruined economy, liberal activist judges and a destroyed Republican label.
Romney was and is demonstrably per record an anti-Reagan, pro-big government, pro-abortion, pro-gay agenda, pro-gun-control, anti-liberty, pro-socialist healthcare, mandate-loving, liberal judge appointing, budget busting progressive.
He is without a doubt the exact opposite of Reagan, Gingrich, the Reagan Revolution, the Republican Revolution and the Tea Party Revolution.
If the Tea Party now embraces Romney, it will have accepted defeat and surrendered to the ruling class.
There is a reason why the elite establishment GOPers are pushing the anti-Reagan Romney and rejecting the pro-life, Reaganite Newt Gingrich. And I guarantee you, it's not in the best interest of the Tea Party or the Liberty we seek.
Not on my watch!! No Romney, no way!!
Rebellion is brewing!!
The establishment wants Romney because they do not want their gravey train to leave the station.
“Vote for a Republican Senate and then vote for Romney”
I’ve been voting “Republican” for the last 30 years and it hasn’t worked very well—they seem to think they owe their voters nothing. I’m changing my views and will only donate and vote for true “conservatives” now and will donate like crazy to disenfranchise people like Barbour who took advantage of the TEA party’s largesse and then turned around to screw them with her endorsement of romney.
RUN!!! I smell a ZOT coming.
What if Romney eventually becomes the GOP nominee, and in Nov. '12 it's either him or another 4 years of America's Chickens Coming Home to Roost?
Should the Tea Party very begrudgingly mumble some kind of wet napkin support for Romney, or write off the White House and focus on Conservative House/Senate candidates to thwart the Executive Branch?
Ask the conservatives in Arizona how that worked out for them w/ McCain.
If people get ZOT'd merely for expressing a different opinion, you don't have to ZOT me. I'm outta here.

Send treats to the troops...
Great because you did it.

GO NEWT GO.......
Reject the socialist bastard!!
Conservatives NEVER own RINOs. RINOs own Conservatives (so long as the latter remains stupid enough to vote for them).
If mittens wins the nomination, and I’m sure as hell not voting for him, what’s the alternative? four more years of oblahblah? Stay home? I will hold my nose and once again vote against the democrat candidate. Sigh
Huh? I think you have the wrong Haley...this is the guv of S.C.——not Mississippi.
A most excellent piece of work there, Jim. Nicely put!
Just say NO to Willard.
If that’s what it comes down to that is what I’ll be doing. Sitting it out and giving Obama a 2nd term is utterly absurd.
What the Tea Party needs is to pack the Congress with like minded conservatives. They can’t bank on making change with the President. They aso need to widen membership and teach their members to thicken their skin against the racists, leftists, and feminists who will call them all kinds of vile names. The Tea Party needs to awaken the middle class to defend itself. Make the wind blow and even your hated Mitt Romney will bend your way.
