Oh, all those reasons Barack Obama should not remain in the White House. All those things that normally spell predictable disaster for an incumbent. All those broken promises. All those anti-Constitution, overtly corrupt things that he's done. Not even much of a possibility you can honestly call this guy pro-American, much less presidential material. How bad does his opponent have to be for him to win the election?
As I put it back in May; Mitt Romney will never “win the presidency, even if he runs against the Devil who declares actually being the Devil and runs on a platform assuring that everyone who votes for him will go to Hell.” I certainly wasn't the only one who could see clearly that Mitt Romney was not the guy Obama opponents needed. He didn't have the support of the right-wing base. He had nothing to offer to the middle and couldn't compete on the left. The entire argument of this serial flip-flopper was that Barack Obama was so bad, mmkay, that anyone could beat him, even him.
We still have no evidence that Mitt Romney could have honestly won the GOP nomination. Even in a generally weak Republican field, the “not Romney” sentiment was much, much stronger than Romney support. Reflect back also on the extreme disinterest in his public appearances. All of the other candidates demonstrated at least at one point or another that they could draw greater interest.
Thanks to the hard work and dedication of a good many honest citizens participating in the process, there is at least a very clear record of fraud behind Romney's nomination. The icing on the cake was the Party's dismissal of duly elected delegates who didn't support him. More people than ever, now have at least some inkling what we're up against.
You will need to decide for yourselves now whether the terribly conspicuous and clumsy manipulation by Big Media was meant to help Mitt Romney or assure Barack Obama's election. It's well known that they both sold out to the same high bidders. So, for the big guys who own the country now, it wouldn't seem to make much difference. (Nor would it make much difference to the rest of us.) If you consider however, that the overwhelming majority of (so-called) “journalists” are Democrats, there is a logical argument to be made that they intentionally favored a dead horse in the Republican race; while in the most egregious display of anti-journalism possible, ignored and degraded the one candidate who could have gotten the job done.
What every American needs to recognize, and consider deeply before the next election, is that we were conned. This election was missing the most fundamental characteristic of a real election. We were not allowed choices. We are only assured of continuation of all those reasons whoever is in the White House should not remain in the White House, things that should spell predictable disaster for any incumbent, broken promises, and anti-Constitution, overtly corrupt activities. The country, including elections, is under the control of a group that is not even pro-American, much less deserving of power.
We, The People, generally have no power to steer the direction of politics and policy. We are effectively not allowed to choose our presidents. We in fact, have very little influence on who the others are that take office, including our own “representatives.” A group of criminals have taken over and they're not willing to give up their power. The number of people seriously out to fix the problem has increased dramatically, but many more are needed. You have to ask yourselves, just how much devastation are you willing to endure before you become willing to do something about it? How much before you are at least willing to consider breaking your old habit of jumping on one or the other of those two bandwagons that are headed for the same cliff?
