The Republican establishment will lie to get Mitt Romney, the media’s favorite Republican, our nomination for President. They may be able to fool the “newly initiated” to politics, but they can’t fool us. We know the truth about Romney which is why he is virtually flat lining in TEA party polls. It’ s up to us to teach people the truth. We have to explain the differences between a Republican and a conservative to people new to politics because the Republican establishment and Karl “Tokyo” Rove types will lie to them.
Since few are more zealous than a convert, many of these “newly initiated” Republicans might march in and vote for Romney believing that will make them good Republicans. We can’t let that happen.
The case against Romney
“He can argue any side of a question. And sometimes you think he’s really believing his argument, but he’s not.” Who said that? Ann Romney, his wife!
Mitt Romney has flip flopped on most of the issues we see as deal breakers.
Those include ABORTION
When he ran for Senate in 1994 he said Roe vs Wade should be sustained and supported. Now he says “life begins at conception, …. Roe vs Wade should be overturned.”
As Massachusetts Governor Romney supported the Brady Bill and was proud to point out his differences with the NRA. When he started running for President he joined the NRA as a life member.
He created this monstrosity and even coached Obama on how to put it together; now he says he’ll repeal it. Today he says Obamacare can be fixed – remember when confronted with its failures Communism’s supporters ALWAYS say “They didn’t do it right, we can make it work.”
Protecting the conservative edge in the Supreme Court
From 2003 to 2005 as Governor of Massachusetts Romney had the duty to appoint 72 judges. He selected 28 Democrats, 26 Independents and just 25% ( 18) Republicans.
Romney used executive fiat to force gay “marriage” on a state that had a law against it.
When a Massachusetts judge ruled Gay “marriage” legal Romney could have replied that state law superseded a court ruling and stood firm, but he did not. Amazingly he unilaterally declared the ruling to be “law” and started issuing gay “marriage” licenses.
When running for Governor of Massachusetts he secured the endorsement of the Log Cabin (gay Republicans) organization.
From 2000 to 2002 in support of Gay Scout Masters, as CEO of the Salt Lake City Olympic Committee, Romney banned Boy Scouts from participating.
There will be more reasons to fight against Romney’s nomination but these issues should serve as the “straight to the point” ammunition we need to enlighten new comers to our movement. It’s up to us again. Last year we taught the Democrats to fear us. Now we have to teach the establishment Republicans not just to hate us, but to fear us as well.
Let’s remind them “Don’t tread on me!” means them too.
