Yes, I agree totally. By not endorsing the RINOs the ground is plowed: the people understand that true conservatism has not been tried in America since perhaps the first Reagan's term.
You can't move the masses unless you are first understood by the masses. For example, if Bachmann endorses Romney Bachmann becomes that image that the media created of her: an off-kilter woman with plenty of air between the ears and a political ambition that has replaced principles.
With all due respect to her personally, politically and on principle, she has not become what the media portrayed....she has proven that they were correct about her all along.
Further, I think she and Santorum have done major damage to a sizable portion of their supporters with their bait-and-switch...ok....let's call a spade a spade: they lied to their supporters.
Newt did too, but his followers were already realpolitik enough to overcome it.
Those janus-faced also-rans have done much to keep conservatives out of politics and on the sidelines not just in the potus race as you advocate, but down-ticket too. They got crushed and they're going to stay home and lick their wounds, childish as it may be.
MEANWHILE, this morning millions of little kids are going to public skrools eating an extra free-meal morning noon and afterschool, dumping all of their personal crayons into the communal crayon bucket and "sharing" their personal property to be "fair."
In 20 years we'll be where France is and those kids will be fainting for the latest leftist liar. What's the plan to fix the kids?
