Romney's “because I'm not Obama” machine is in full swing even though he hasn't yet passed the first hurdle. The “not Romney” Republican primary delegates are breathing heavily down his neck. Ron Paul is winning states and within reach. Still, Romney's campaign, in cooperation with the establishment media, wants to pretend that it's already too late and is desperately working the “lesser of two evils” gag.
How about that fear Obama thing? Pretty crazy, huh? Yes, of course Obama is bad. He represents not what we should fear, but what we should boldly reject, fight the heroic battles against. He is the adversity against which we must persevere and continually conquer. But Romney is Obama by another name. We will not have conquered evil by defeating evil only to deliver ourselves to evil.
People jump on bandwagons, uninformed and emotionally charged, because it feels good to feel like one is part of a team. Because of this, many are open to suggestion and it doesn't need to be subtle. The typical brainwashed zombie for Romney is actually no more a part of Romney's team than a beer-drinking baseball fan is the winning pitcher he admires. Nonetheless, both get worked into a frenzy, vicariously participating in the process of trying to win.
The Romney campaign pocket watch swings before your eyes. You are getting sleepy, very sleepy. You will not awaken. You will believe that Romney's politics and character are of no importance. You will believe that people who think that they are important are kooky. You will reject them without thinking. The most important goal in your life is to defeat Obama. You must defeat Obama. You must defeat Obama. You must support Mitt Romney to defeat Obama. You must support Mitt Romney.
And here's the irony. They don't seem to realize how much they're like late 20th Century Chicago White Sox fans. Mitt Romney is the candidate least likely to beat Barack Obama. Why? Because he's the same guy! He brings nothing better to the table. The Romney zombies are being fooled twice in the same game.
WAKE UP ! WAKE UP ! WAKE UP !
