Taking the Imperial Long View™

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.

Pick one.

Thatisall.

Go against the Establishment? What are you thinking!?! Can’t have that…

Distinguishing between any of the current “front runners” of the GOP requires a finely honed razor. While I agree with His Rottieness’ ideas, I can’t find any reason to feel more confident that Newt will somehow dismantle the RINOcracy than will Romney. They’re both flaming a–holes, just with different facades. They’ve both historically demonstrated far too much willingness to abandon… Read more »

One of the issues I have with Newt is this: if he cannot/will not stay faithful to his wife, what makes you think he can/will remain faithful to “we the people”? As a Christian, I am having a really difficult time trying to reconcile his infidelity and why I should vote for him. I realize that for most people, that’s… Read more »

Maybe my victory is minor, but I told the telephone hack from the GOP who called me looking for donations there was no freaking way I was going to donate to the party. I’ll select my own candidates, thank you very much. Although I doubt anyone on this forum donates to the party in general…and maybe the Supreme Council of… Read more »

I really liked Michelle Bachman until she imploded by going stupid with her comment about the Gardasil shot causing retardation for that one girl. Then instead of issuing a mea culpa, she doubled down on the stupid. She sank herself. That’s too bad, as she would have been light years above Obama. Cain came in second until the slime merchants… Read more »

LC Ogrrre @ #: Yeah, you rite, Ogrrre! Why oh why can’t conservatives, like Bachman, recognize that they have to stay absolutely true to the Constitution and its limits on federal power to be viable candidates? As soon as they go off on their personal or religious beliefs and act like they’re going to impose those beliefs on the nation,… Read more »

There is nothing that makes Owebama acceptable now that his motives and methods are known to the independents who took a flyer on him. There is nothing about a Republican that would be swayed into supporting a known subversive this time, even by not showing up. The Paulbots would be write ins if they show up. So Zero gets zero… Read more »

Yeah, Mish, I guess that could work (I’d sooner vote for LUAP NOR than Gingrich or any of the other losers vying for the nomination), but to put it simply, a Gingrich presidency is not going to happen. He won’t even be the one on the ballot. I love the term RINOcracy, though. It really hits the nail on the… Read more »

Mark12A @ #:

if we turn off the money taps maybe they’ll start asking why.

That’s already been tried – and it has failed dismally. What it will take is enough people refusing to vote for the lame-ass candidates they field. Sadly, the mustang herds will sing in four-part harmony before that happens.
