Karma for Mitt Romney? 1964 - Romney Vs Goldwater Now 2012 - Romney Vs Paul
Karma for Mitt Romney and the Romney Family Dynasty?: The Ghost of Barry Goldwater Could Haunt Romney
Karma: the fact the Romney family may experience from Ron Paul
supporters what George Romney delivered Barry Goldwater at the 1964 GOP
convention. If you remember, Romney led the Rockefeller arm of the GOP
to turn against Goldwater.
If you don't know the story of how the Rockefeller arm of the GOP turned
on conservative Barry Goldwater in 1964, ensuring he would lose the
presidential election, it's all part of the long going story of
progressivism in the Republican party that dates back to the days of
Abraham Lincoln. There are many in the Republican party who detest the
word conservative. They look down upon conservatives and libertarians in
the Republican party, and they only use us in hopes we will vote for
the lesser of two evils.
You may remember how the same Rockefeller arm supporting moderate George
Bush tried to play games with the GOP primary in New Hampshire.
Well, of course the candidate this year who often seems shut out of the
debate receiving fewer questions is Ron Paul. We all know the
Rockefeller establishment is for the liberal Republican Mitt Romney, a
man who supported abortion until he decided to run for president. A man
who supports gun control, tax and spend government, and of course
Ombamneycare, having ran the pilot program in Massachusetts.
As Iowa approached and conservative Ron Paul was surging, we saw an
effort from the Republican establishment to purge any chance of a Ron
Paul victory as even the governor insulted the voters of Iowa claiming
Iowa won't count if Paul wins. Paul's supporters definitely feel
discounted in by the establishment in 2012.
Yet, it's looking more and more like the establishment will soon beg
Paul supporters to support liberal Mitt Romney in order to stop Obama. I
scratch my head wondering how supporting someone who looks like Obama
on paper from gun control to cap and trade to healthcare is stopping
Obama. If Obama's policies live after he leaves the White House, that's
not exactly stopping Obama.
That's the challenge the GOP establishment faces--attracting Ron Paul
supporters to support the liberal Republican Romney. I know I won't be
casting a vote for Romney in 2012. It will be the first time I haven't
voted for the Republican candidate, even though I wasn't voting for John
McCain until Sarah Palin came along for the ride.
Isn't it ironic, nearly fifty years after George Romney, the liberal
Republican governor of Michigan, led the walkout of Republicans using
Saul Alinsky tactics at the 1964 Republican convention ensuring the
divide in the GOP that led to Barry Goldwater's defeat, the Republican
establishment will soon beg Ron Paul supporters, the same people they
alienated to come together and vote for Mitt Romney. The Romney family
never backed Goldwater. George Romney led many within his party to
oppose Goldwater and at campaign appearances about whether he supported Goldwater, he replied, "You know darn well I'm not!"
It really is the ultimate slap in the face for Ron Paul supporters and
it could be the ultimate form of political karma in our lifetime. The
Republican establishment can beg all they want, but I refuse to vote for
the abortion supporting, gun grabbing, tax and spend, government
mandate loving Mitt Romney. In fact, it would be nice to see Paul
supporters organize their own protest at this years GOP convention in
the spirit of George Romney against the inevitable GOP nominee.
So ask me if I will support Mitt Romney for President, and I will reply, "you know darn well I'm not."
