The only way we are going to beat Obama and begin the long road toward returning freedom and liberty to this country, the only way to give our children a future with as much opportunity as we were given is to nominate someone new, smart, willing to attack head-on the fiscal, statist and National Security idiocy of the Left, to not pull punches in domestic or foreign affairs, and to return this great nation to the Rule of Law.
Unless we do something intelligent and outside the box, unless we take the fight TO the enemy, which the traditional GOP continues to prove themselves unwilling to do, we will lose this great nation to Obama and the hard Left.
What is intelligent and new? Announcing a Ryan/West ticket ….. Now.
Or…. we are going to waste tens of millions of dollars fighting amongst ourselves, creating massive amounts of anti-GOP-candidate advertising as we beat-up each other, advertising the Left will use, and we more than likely will lose the election – and the Nation – to Obama and the hard-Left.
States are considering scrapping Primaries due to budget concerns. Fine. Use that to our advantage.
The 2012 election will be about domestic issues – Constitutional government, healthcare, the rule of law and the economy. Foreign issues obviously are important with three small wars/police actions going on, but domestic policy will lead the way.
The GOP candidates so far announced or on the verge are damaged goods, old news, yesterday’s laundry.
Huckabee cannot win – the Center is not going to put a pompous preacher in the White House. The MSM have spent so much time hammering Palin that they will pull out ALL stops to keep themselves from being proved wrong. Romney loses every time he runs, is too slick and invented RomneyCare (yeah I know his plan was altered by the Dems – like that won’t happen in DC?). Cain has no name recognition and no political experience. Christie has been pretty adamant about not running. Pawlenty is unknown outside political geekville, Trump says every president is the worst ever. And if you go to the encyclopedia and look-up fat white southern redneck old-school Republican politician, you see a picture of Barbour – no way the Center will vote him into office.
The only team that can change the game, grab the Right, capture the immediate attention of the Center, keep their cool, calmly hammer the Left with consistent, rational, logically-expressed facts about everything from the economy to healthcare to defense is Ryan/West.
If the GOP were smart – ALWAYS a valid question (Dr John Searle: “The Right is too stupid to discuss but the Left is evil”), and if the GOP candidates really cared about this nation, they’d get a Ryan/West ticket to announce NOW – and then every other name in the race would get behind that ticket.
We’d spend zero dollars fighting primaries and caucuses, money we’ll need to fight Soros, AFSCME, SEIU, etc., and just have Ryan/West start their run to the Oval NOW.
Ryan already has demonstrated complete grasp of the fiscal problem – and how to fix it, and that he is more than willing to school the President on the economy, budget and healthcare. West has continually demonstrated that he is willing to take-on the Left and the existential danger of Islamist Jihad.
With the exception of Palin, no other candidates have shown the tenacity, grit or willingness to tell the hard truth. And the truth is what we need – lots of it, now.
It is time for the GOP to grow-up, realize that, though the other candidates each have something to offer, no one currently announced – or on the verge – can win. It is time to do something different, something to shake-up the status quo, particularly a GOP status quo that insists on giving us middle-of-the-road-go-along-to-get-along losers like Dole and McCain.
And the only team I can see that can do this, can win, will certainly mop the floor in ANY debate with Obama and Biden, calmly, professionally, without hyperbole but with facts, thereby attracting the Center as well as the Right… is Ryan / West.
If we nominate just about anyone else we are committing suicide as a party and as a nation.
These two must team-up and announce .. NOW. Like Christie, they may not feel ready. But the nation cannot wait. History is about leaders who took the moment… and changed the world. This is one of those moments. These two can change the world by running and, if they run, they will win.
Or the world will change for the worse – the entire world – as a lame duck Obama, with nothing to lose, completes the turn of this nation to the same european statist socialist model that is destroying europe before our eyes, and transforms this nation away from the America we love and want to leave to our kids – and that the world needs.
It really may be up to these two men. They MUST NOT let this nation down.
Carpe Diem, Mr Ryan, Mr West. Carpe Diem.
