I don’t remember an election where a candidate didn’t even have half the delegates needed to actually win the nomination and the American people were constantly told to simply “come together” or to just concede and ‘’get behind’’ that person. The media and the majority of the establishment have truly exemplified the left’s mentality of one not having to actually earn something but rather it just be given to them. It’s as if the media has taken over with Occupy Election 2012. News alert to mainstream: There are a lot more than one per center’s out here in this matter and we are not going to compromise nor concede to the candidate you are pushing upon us. We aren’t going to drop those red, white and blue balloons yet regardless of the fact you’re already inflating them. It’s we the people, not we the media.
Not even half of the states in this Republic have gone to the polls to elect the man who will stand up against the train wreck who has been steering us on the Socialism Express for the last three years. But yet, every day we are told that one particular candidate is the ‘’inevitable’’ nominee and that he is the ‘’only one who can beat Obama.” I have always said, whoever the media subtly endorses, or in this case blatantly endorses in a Republican nomination process, the voters need to flee in the opposite direction. Am I saying all media is doing this? No. However the big networks, newspapers, talking heads, paid political pundits and so-called non-establishment columnists are.
Not only have the American people experienced how pushy the establishment can be, we have also seen how they are able to pick the political topic for the week (or months), falsely spin it and then blame a particular candidate for not talking about the ‘’important issues.” Prime example is what they did to Senator Santorum. The fact is that ABC’s George Stephanopoulos was the man responsible for bringing up contraception in one of the first Presidential debates. Unfortunately they were successful in their attempt to trap the candidates in their media net and the birth control issue became more like the catch of the next three months instead of the catch of the day. We need to remain a few strokes ahead of them and not let something as ridiculous as reproduction and birth control dictate our discussion. Speaking of producing, I’m still waiting for someone to produce the tape where Senator Santorum said he is going to take away a woman’s birth control. ..
Last night while watching the returns from Ohio, Tennessee, Oklahoma and the other Super Tuesday states, CNN did a hypothetical delegate map where they played around with numbers and states regarding the candidate’s potential wins. I wouldn’t mind hypothetical maps if they actually did hypothetical’s that were possible for all candidates. It was as if they gave John King only one Crayola to use, Romney Red.
I know from experience this election after speaking with hundreds of voters the lines of truth and complacency are merging. This is far from over. We need to remember that we live in a Republic and all of us are to be represented. That means we each get a say and that it’s our duty to educate ourselves on the issues and not simply take what a Super PAC ad says or a paid panel of pundits. We are capable of thinking for ourselves. Whenever we are rushed into something, it should serve as a bright yellow yield sign. Usually when someone rushes us to do something they are hiding something or they know that the passing of time will be disadvantageous to them. Just like when Nancy Pelosi said ‘’we must pass the healthcare bill in order to see what’s in it.”
The establishment is trying to rush us into picking a candidate, a particular candidate. It’s in these moments we must refuse compromise and we must take the longest pause. In the end yes, Republicans will back our nominee. We want Barack Obama on flight #2013 back to Chicago, golf clubs and all. What I am saying is that this time hopefully it won’t be as it was in 2008; when the majority of us had to close our eyes and clench our jaw while pulling the lever for our Republican nominee.
