The Florida Primary is over; Mitt Romney won over Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum with Ron Paul coming in last.
When listening to the conservative Tea Party Network and knowing that over 150 Tea Party organizations supported Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, and that they both had support from the most conservative leaders in America it really makes me wonder how could a Mitt Romney victory happen?
But the main question is was this really a victory of the voters or was this a GOP establishment manipulated primary?
The best election money can buy as PJ Tatler on Pajamas media calls it.
Ever since the Midterm elections of 2010, a broad front of conservative voters united under a group called “The Tea Party”. They wanted to take the Grand Ol’ party back from the establishment, renew the conservative cause we once so proudly defended, and kick the RINO’s out of power. Successfully, we showed the GOP what true conservative voters are capable of when we helped them take back the House of Representatives – Something the odds were against.
However, since the GOP likes to go along to get along they want to silence the Tea Party in order to maintain their established power.
Grand Ol’ Party – Once the flag ship for Christian conservative values, honesty, integrity, limited government, and power through WE THE PEOPLE. It represented the “American Dream” of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness – NOT ANYMORE.
The GOP today is diversity preaching and engaged in all sorts of foul play just like the Liberals to hold on to their power. It’s a tug of war in the same mud. They no longer care about the voice of the people, the voters; they just care about keeping the status quo and keeping the “establishment” in tact. It’s no wonder why WE THE PEOPLE have lost all confidence and trust in our so-called representation.
And yet the answer to right the ship is so simple. Stop being politicians and start being Statesman again. Stand up for less government and fiscal responsibility no matter what the cost, and keep your word.
However, instead of seizing the momentum of The Tea Party to strengthen the Republican Party so that Obama can be defeated the GOP does the opposite – THEY DECLARE WAR on their base the true conservative American voters.
THEY DECLARE WAR ON US – THEIR VOTERS and SUPPORTERS – UNBELIEVABLE
Instead of uniting the Conservatives and independents under one flag by working with them they divide the Conservative base even more, playing right in the hands of the Democrats – and for what?
Rush Limbaugh proved in ‘Real Clear Politics’ that the GOP’s joined forces with The New York Times declaring War on its own voters.
Limbaugh on Real Clear Politics: Bill Kristol on the Tea Party: “It’s an infantile form of conservatism.” Scott Reed, veteran strategist and lobbyist: “I think it’s waning now,” talking to the reporter of the story about the Tea Party’s influence. “Party leaders have managed to bleed some of the anti-establishment intensity out of the movement, Reed said, by slyly embracing Tea Party sympathizers in Congress, rather than treating them as ‘those people.’ Did he mean to say that the party was slowly co-opting the Tea Partiers? ‘Trying to,’ Reed said. ‘And that’s the secret to politics: trying to control a segment of people without those people recognizing that you’re trying to control them.’” This is a Republican consultant talking about how to neutralize the Tea Party.

Bottom Line is….
The GOP does not want a true conservative President in 2012. A true conservative President running on the principles of “Reagan Conservatism” for limited Government, Constitutional America, fewer regulations, less Taxes, and more power back to “We the people” would cramp their style.
The GOP wants a GOP puppet like John Boehner, who became Speaker of the House with help from the Tea Party (that we were good enough for), but as soon as he held the hammer in his hand he became a good GOP soldier representing power preservation, backdoor deals, and the betrayal of principles rather than standing up for true conservatism.
GOP Establishment/Elite (RINO’s) vs. Tea Party
The GOP establishment complains that grassroots Conservatives call them RINO’s (Republicans In Name Only) – Well, what else do you call people who “claim” to hold to conservative principles while running for office, but as soon as they’re elected they play “flip flop-balancing act politics” betraying and selling out everything the people believe in.
They add insult to injury by calling their own voter base “Grass Root Radicals”. And the GOP wonders why they lose elections.
Just take 2008 presidential candidate John McCain – He is the perfect example of a fence riding RINO that I can possibly think of.
McCain even dared to attack the Republican Tea Party Base as “Hobbits”.
Well, here is a message to Mr. McCain: The hobbits were the hero’s in the movie “Lord of the Rings” and typified the little underestimated underdog that conquers the big overpowering evil with determination and bravery, never abandoning the path of honor and faith.
Next time you want to insult “Us” Senator McCain – First get your facts straight or at least watch the movie. I am proud to be a hobbit.
And that is why the GOP prefers a Mitt Romney over a Newt Gingrich or a Rick Santorum. Romney is the perfect presidential version of John Boehner. A true party soldier who will make sure that he will not forget those who helped him into office, and I’m not talking about the voters I’m talking about the GOP.
Newt Gingrich IS a walking hand grenade for the GOP Establishment (and I say that with the highest respect) because he does not cater to them or their distortion of facts. He wants to change the establishment not preserve it, heeding the will of the people, and proving he is not a party soldier, but a leader – And that is NOT what the GOP establishment wants.
Rick Santorum is considered to be the “most conservative,” but has nowhere near the experience nor the record of achievements that Gingrich has to really threaten the GOP. And in my opinion, the GOP is giving Santorum just enough money to keep him in the race in order to derail Gingrich and assure Romney the victory.
Romney vs. Gingrich
After his victory in Florida Romney declared he wants to unite the GOP. How does he want to unite what he, together with the Party have previously divided through trench warfare?
Does he really think he can first artillery everything we believe in and then just miraculously say, oh now it’s over, and we are all one big happy family?
2012 Presidential election
If the GOP continues to fight against their base instead of listening to them this will be the last election for the GOP as a grand old party.
The call for a third party, widely ignored the past 3 years, becomes louder and louder. We are fed up that the elite think they can rule over our head. We are fed up with being treated like stubborn dumb children.
Let me make this clear Mr. Preibus, Chairman of the GOP:
YOU AND THE ELITE DO NOT OWN THE PARTY – WE THE REPUBLICAN VOTERS DO
And the winner is……
….Barrack Hussein Obama and the Democratic Party. The GOP financed trench warfare only plays into the hands of the radical fascist Obama regime. All they need to do is sit back and watch how we maul each other.
In 2010 we gave the GOP a chance to prove that they could do more than give lip service… They failed.
All they needed to do was keep their promises and work WITH us and not AGAINST us… They failed.
Let’s hope and pray that at least the Tea Party voters can look beyond the polls, take one for the team, and vote for whom we really think can kick Obama out of office.
And maybe after 2012 start a third party – a true conservative TEA PARTY OF WE THE CONSTITUIONALIST PEOPLE
For God and Country, and the most amazing City on the Hill

Dear Mr. President,
We are at the point in our beautiful country where we just avoided a Government shutdown by the means of God knows what?
Like most Americans I have followed the “negotiations” (in this case a contradiction in terms) very closely. I also followed your conduct and involvement very closely and I have to say Sir, you have not disappointed me at all.
You still are the finger pointing opportunist you always have been and always will be. You still think you and your favorite thugs Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi can run the country to your own personal advantage.
I am not sure, Sir, what they taught you at Harvard Law School, but it was definitely NOT the Constitution and looking at your personal conduct I have come to the conclusion that any backwoods local community College is better than this Elite School.
In the first place allow me to give you a short excerpt of correct terminology:
Bi-Partisan ship: Does NOT mean Male part, female part, and Liberal Pundit Part of ONE party, while the rest of the country has to duck like a dog when his Highness Obama speaks; Bi-partisan ship means two different political parties.
(Just in case you have mistaken that as well when you rushed America into war in Libya; you spoke of bi-partisan decisions. Well Sir the United Nations is NOT part of our system).
Divided Power: Does NOT mean divided between the three musketeers Barrack Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi; Ruling the country based on their personal ideology over the head of WE THE PEOPLE.
Divided Power means “President – Congress – Senate” in a trinity. And the Congress and the Senate speak for WE THE PEOPLE and not for Harry Reid and Barrack Obama.
Childish: Well Sir it is not childish to accept the fact that our country has to economize our spending. It is not your money Mr. President. You are nothing but the elected administrator of the people’s money. The sooner you accept the fact that you are nothing but MY SERVANT for a limited amount of time (not short enough) the better we will get along. So when Speaker Boehner tries to save us money and cuts out senseless spending that is not childish, but intelligent.
As a matter of fact it is your partisan buddy that Pundit Harry Reid that acts childish. He kind of reminds me of a 5 year old: “If I don’t get what I want I shut down the Government and blame it on you”.
But then you don’t even understand this principal yourself, right?
By spreading the fear that the Military and retired people would not get paid after a Governmental Shutdown you and Harry Reid used this cheap PR trick to try and blackmail Speaker John Boehner into giving in to your demands.
Be advised Mr. President that this behavior might sit well with your consolidated Liberal Voters, the radical socialists in our country, but WE THE PEOPLE are taking notes and will make sure you do not get away with this.
You have been so spoiled, together with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid as the three musketeers doing whatever you want whether WE THE PEOPLE like it or not, it is time somebody shows you, Mr. President, and your favorite thug Harry Reid your place.
I do understand that you do not want to defund parasitic Organizations such as the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, NAACP, CAIR, Unions and other democracy hating organizations. I truly do understand that because let us take a closer look at them:
Those are alleged Non-Governmental-Non-Profit organizations whose primary source of financial resources comes from Governmental Funding.
80% of all good Americans reject those organizations and what they stand for and yet the very same 80%, and that includes me, finance those Parasitical Institutions against our will through Governmental Funding.
This is Socialist Redistribution 101.
The same organizations, of course, use their Governmental Funding to funnel that money back to supporting you and the Democratic Party through campaign contributions. This is the “Liberal Machine” at work, nice and tidy.
And that Mr. President is the real reason why the funding of those parasites is so important to you. It is all about re-election and not what is good for the American people.
In lame terms, they use my money to support my political opponent. Thank you for the redistribution of my money against my will Mr. President you sure are a professed parade Socialist.
Or as it is called in the language of Criminal Justice – Money laundering!
And since you already announced that you will run a 1 Billion Dollar election campaign you definitely will need that money, right?
1 Billion dollars in election funding – this number alone is obscene.
But then again you are not any different than the socialists in the former USSR. There it was the same, taking it from the people, keeping them in poverty to make them dependable on the government while the politicians lived in an arrogant, egomaniacal dictatorship.
You might have thought with our Budget you could “Rule and Reign” over the peoples heads again just as you, Reid, and Pelosi did on the Healthcare Crime you committed. But this time WE THE PEOPLE have a voice in the congress.
I count the days Mr. President, 654 days left until WE THE PEOPLE have our America back, our Senate back and our White House back.
May God have Mercy for the next 600 days and
Bless the Greatest Nation on the Planet the
United States of America

~~ Don’t treat on me ~~
This open Letter has also been sent to Rep. John Boehner direct in his office as off this morning;
Honorable John Boehner,
I have to admit Sir, I am furious right now. WE THE PEOPLE represented by the Tea party have not fought so hard and so long to help Conservative Representatives to regain control of the House just to see that nothing really has changed.
D.C. is still nothing but `Politics as Usual´, deals and cuts. Please explain to me how we can have the majority in the House and yet that radical Anti-American Pundit Nancy Pelosi is still able to push a Law through that is rejected by the Majority of the American People – the DREAM ACT (or better be called NIGHTMARE – ACT) that allows criminal Illegal’s who break on a daily base at least 4 Federal Laws (Tax Fraud, Social Security fraud, Immigration Violations, Illegal Border Crossing) if not more and several State Laws. All of them subject for an American Citizen to go to jail for centuries.
I remind on the Lottery winner in CA who did not pay his tax and was convicted to 4 years of federal Prison while now Illegal Criminals become awarded the American Citizenship for the same.
If WE THE PEOPLE cannot count on our from US elected Conservative Senators, than WE THE PEOPLE HAVE TO RECONSIDER our decision and you, Sir, be well advised to let your RINO colleges on the House know – the next election comes for sure and all those who betrayed us will pay the ultimate price for a politician – UNEMPLOYMENT and being de elected.
THIS IS STILL OUR COUNTRY
This letter will be publically posted on my Blog (1400 direct readers every day, plus those who read through promotion) and on top as open Letter on my facebook wall (940 direct friends reconnected with about 500,000 other conservative readers). This might not be of interest for you (who do not care about one man) but the next election will show.
And yes – GOP has regained the House because of us and our Facebook, Twitter and Blog network.
Thank you and Good Luck
