We’ve been thinking.
Listen, we know that Newt Gingrich isn’t exactly the Perfect Candidate™, but he has got one thing going for him, which is a refusal to roll over. Still, he’s hardly Thomas Jefferson, and we’re not going to be howling hoorah when we pull the lever for him if he’s the candidate, even though we will, because he’s better than SCOAMF by several orders of magnitude (not that it takes much to achieve that).
But that’s not why we’ll pull the lever for him if that’s what it comes down to.
The real reason is this: We have, us true patriots who really do believe in conservatism, free markets and liberty, been talking for years about how to get back in the game. One of the things that comes up constantly is that we have to either take back our party or create a new one, and the best way to take back our party (the least difficult way if you ask us) is to start from the bottom up until we’ve taken over the top like the liberal fascists took over our nation. That is true. That IS the way to go about it.
But we need some victories along the way to motivate the troops. An army marches on its stomach, that much is true, but it also marches on victories, big or small.
My point is this: If we can take down the RINOcracy a peg or two, and nothing would do that better than a unified rejection of their Business As Usual, Losing More Slowly, Establishment Approved Candidates, then we’d have made a giant leap towards final victory. If we could show the RINOcracy that we would rather chew our own arms off than vote for their beloved plastic Dem-lite candidates, then they’d be forced, due to primitive self-preservation, to either give up or go the way of the Dodo.
We have that opportunity now. We can uniformly reject their Golden Calf, their Anointed One, no matter how many camels we have to swallow, and let them know that there IS a line in the sand. That no amount of threats or cajoling by them will make us vote for somebody simply because they told us to, because they told us that they knew better than us who was electable and that we should all just fall in line (like liberal fascists do) and accept their superior wisdom.
We can keep playing their game, which is “no matter how atrociously inept our chosen candidate is, you still have to accept our choice because he’s still better than the alternative”, which will give us nothing but more of the same, or we can hit the establishment who depend on our willingness to stay on their plantation in order to maintain their lives of privilege while the rest of us are losing our jobs and homes right in the face. Because the prospect of losing their DC sinecures and all of the bribes that come with that is just about the only thing that they give a good shit about.
We can kick them where it hurts by voting for somebody who, although not perfect by even the most lenient of standards, is still somebody willing to misbehave and who is loathed by the establishment that all good, patriotic Americans should hate with the fury of a thousand suns.
The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Until I have no further use for him. I’m not pledging my life to Newt, I’m just saying that as long as he does what I want him to do, which is what will help destroy the RINOcracy, I’m fine with supporting him. And he ought to know that. He’s been in the game for long enough.
Or we could just keep waiting for Mr. Perfect while the Plastic Romneys, Weepy Boners and Mitch McCocklesses keep surfing through lives of ease while shitting their pants laughing at our gullibility.
