Sure; they know what you want to hear, at least for the most part, though they’re playing the Bible-thumper card a bit too heavy. They know pretty well how to push your buttons, getting the applause at the rallies and so on. As they see it, they know how to win over us stupid bumpkin Elmer Fudds in fly-over country (just throw ’em some red meat and watch them bark like dogs).
Here’s an example of what they really think, gleaned from a rare moment of partial honesty. Newt calls himself a “Realpolitik Wilsonian.” Yeah; that Wilson. Be sure to watch both videos on the page. I don’t care what you think of Glen Beck. Screw that. Listen to the words. The “Four Freedoms”.
That’s the Republican Party today. You can’t mix the liberty talk with the Four Freedoms. That’s a lie, and yet it represents everything the Party stands for.
Make no mistake. We’re being offered what amounts to a plea deal. Either we take the deal (vote Republican) or we’re sentenced to another four years with a Democrat in office. Bleed slowly or bleed quickly. It’s a threat you see– take a Progressive dirt bag (Republican) or else. That’s how this works, and I’m not playing that game. I’ll get interested in an election when liberty is on the ballot, but don’t expect that to happen any time soon.
