We have just witnessed the Big Whigs of the GOP -- the right wing of the Big Government Party -- summarily disenfranchise millions of conservative voters across America either by invalidating their votes for someone other than Mr. Excitement, Mitt Romney, or by not allowing them to vote at all for a true conservative to run against Nero Obama.
Yet, Sarah Palin, on Hannity tonight, and Mark Levin, on his radio show, harbor the delusion that we will be able to change the GOP after Obama is defeated in November and make it more conservative, more Reaganesque.
This begs the question as to what they are smoking. Are they doing crack together? What? What? What?
We have a single party in this nation divided into two wings but controlled at the top of each wing a regressive elite - I refuse to use the term progressive for there is nothing progressive about their totalitarian policies - an elite which suckles off all of the hard-earned tax dollars that they can stuff in their pockets and no amount of browbeating on the part of Mark Levin and Sarah Palin, and others, is going to make them change their evil ways.
2010 was a watershed election which swept massive numbers of conservatives into power all across the political landscape and yet, here in 2012, how many of the TEA Party candidates who won in 2010 are still considered conservative and who have not been co-opted by the Big Whigs of the GOP? Not many. Oh, you'll have an Allen West here or a Jim DeMint there but in all candor most of the TEA Partiers of 2010 are now indistinguishable from the Big Whigs of the GOP elite.
I believe that God does not sleep and that Obama will face his judgement someday for the evil he is doing to our nation and around the world. But that is in God's good time.
Until then we need to stop harboring delusions that the beacon on a hill that Ronald Reagan once lit during his presidency.
While Rush Limbaugh is right that Obama is the second term of Jimmy Carter, Mitt Romney is not the second coming of Ronald Reagan. Maybe his wife, Anne, is but not him.
I do agree with Sarah Palin that Gingrich needs to stay in the race although for the life of me I question her judgement about Ron Paul staying in. Ron Paul is quite insane.
I certainly wish Rick Perry would get back in. I would even like to see Sarah Palin herself get in to keep the debate alive. Else we're rewarding the Big Whigs of the GOP for disenfranchising millions of conservative voters and they will have no reason whatsoever after the election to re-enfranchise those millions of conservative voters. None.
So Mark Levin and Sarah Palin and Hannity and Rush and others should stop smoking whatever they are smoking and pretending we can take the GOP back after the election should Mr. Excitement win the presidency.
We are today before the greatest combat that mankind has
ever seen. I do not believe that the Christian community has
completely understood it. We are today before the final
struggle between the Church and the anti-Church, between
the Gospel and the anti-Gospel.
