52nd Rant: An open letter to ALL Registered Republicans (Pre-Convention speech)

Dear all Registered Republicans,

Here we sit at 85 days from the November 6 General Election (as well as 16 days away from the start of the Republican Convention) and yet here we are still griping and complaining over something which we absolutely, positively CANNOT change. Instead of whining that our “preferred candidate” (whether it be Herman Cain or Newt or Santorum or even Ron Paul) is not the nominee we CAN get behind Mitt Romney (who IS the nominee) and do whatever it takes to get Barack Obama out of the White House in November.

For all intents and purposes, the primaries were over with back in April when Romney got out to that early lead, which meant that he was able to coast all the way through until the last Tuesday in May, when the primary in Texas put him over the top of the 1144 delegates needed for the nomination. It was also in April when he focused primarily on where the target of all of our disdain and degradation SHOULD be, that being on Barack Obama’s failed policies and no positive record. It SHOULD have been back in April when we all needed to coalesce behind Romney and focus on Obama. Instead, we have been spending the past 4 months griping about how “fixed” the primaries had been and also about how “unelectable” Romney is. That is NOT a way to take America back in November. Rather, that is a way of taking your ball and going home just because you are not willing to play by the rules and want things YOUR way!

Now I admit I am also upset that my candidate (first Herman Cain and then when he was forced out on December 3, 2011, due to some false accusations by some women who I like to term as “one-hit wonders” because they were ONLY out to harm his successful campaign, Newt Gingrich) is not the nominee. HOWEVER, I am not one to complain about it because it does nothing but derail me from my overall purpose of ensuring that Obama is defeated in November. Let us put our differences about who is the best candidate to defeat Obama in November and actually get behind the one who the PEOPLE chose OVERWHELMINGLY to go up against Obama.

We would do well to heed these wise words from great historical figures:

    • A house divided against itself cannot stand – Abraham Lincoln (spoken in 1858 at the acceptance of the Republican nomination for the United States Senate, quoting the Bible)
    • Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste and any city or house divided against itself shall not stand – Jesus Christ (found in the Bible in Matthew 12:25, which Abraham Lincoln quoted above)
    • We must, indeed, all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately. – Benjamin Franklin (said at the signing of the Declaration of Independence)

IF we do not get behind Mitt Romney between now and the Convention, then we might as well kiss this country goodbye because we are playing RIGHT INTO Obama’s hands. He is sitting up there in 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue (commonly called the PEOPLE’S White House but now is Communism Central) just rubbing his hands as America burns. And why is America burning? Because WE THE PEOPLE are fighting amongst ourselves instead of taking the fight to Obama and the Democrats WHERE IT TRULY BELONGS. We are also letting Obama dictate what should be talked about (the social issues, the tax records, all the things which my good friend Titan92 of Own The Narrative considers “shiny objects”) and not what are TRULY IMPORTANT. (the 8.3% REPORTED unemployment rate, the 15% REAL unemployment rate the 40+ months of unemployment over 8%, the millions of people leaving the workforce, the $16T of debt, the fact that the Democrats in Congress have not passed a budget in almost 1300 days)

If you TRULY want to save America, then you will get behind Mitt Romney no matter what your principles or beliefs are and get Obama OUT of office. Otherwise, as Andrew Breitbart had said back at CPAC in February of this year, “if you're not in that bunker 'cause you're not satisfied with this candidate, more than shame on you. You're on the other side.” As a matter of fact, let me play that clip.

I said it before, and I will say it again: “IF we do not vote for Mitt Romney in November, then this WILL be our future during an Obama second term

As was mentioned by Joshua after the initial conquest of Canaan (found in the biblical book of Joshua 24:15) “[And] if it disagreeable in your sight to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves today who you will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River; or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” That verse is also applicable today. If it is disagreeable in your sight to vote for Mitt Romney, choose for yourselves today who you will vote for; whether Obama who has led America into the hell it is in; or the other minor candidates who will only serve as a front for Obama this year; but as for me and Conservative Nation Radio, we will vote for Romney.

51st Rant: We are at the Two Minute Warning in America now

Let me start by playing a short two minute video which was played earlier in the year

This video by Clint Eastwood (shown during the Super Bowl in February) makes a statement that it is halftime in America. Now I will take it one step further and say that right now we are at the two minute warning in America. The Republican and Democrat Conventions (coming up the last week in August and the first week in September respectively) are what I will consider for all intents and purposes as the two minute warning, with the mid-term elections being halftime. The breakdown I have is as follows:

  • First quarter – the inauguration of the Congress and then the President
  • Halftime – the Mid-Term elections and the inauguration of the subsequent Congress
  • Two minute warning – the Conventions
  • End of game – the election until the inauguration of the Congress

At halftime we had changed the course of the Congress when we won the House of Representatives in 2010. Granted we failed to get the Senate, but at least we put the stop to the total overhaul of the country into overt Socialism. We need to keep that edge up until November and beyond. We need to reclaim the Senate and get rid of Obama.

Right now the Democrats appear to be playing a prevent defense. For those of you who do not follow football, a prevent defense is usually done to prevent the opposing team from completing a long pass in order to win the game. So in a sense they are giving the opposing team the short play and also prevent them from getting to the sidelines so they can keep the clock going. Obama, Reid, and Pelosi are throwing all of these minor issues out there (abortion, gay marriage, Mitt Romney’s tax returns, Occupy Wall Street, Romney’s gaffes, etc.) out there as a way to deflect from the main issue of jobs and the economy. They are our form of the short passes for now as a way of throwing the Democrats off target and then when November 6 comes around, they will not know what hit them when they lose because they hang their hats on all of their main issues.

As famous NFL analyst John Madden once said, "All a prevent defense does is prevent you from winning." I will go on record now and say that all the minor issues the Democrats throw out there will prevent them from winning in November. May each and every one of us keep the eyes on the target of the White House and Congress in November and take it back with the ammo of jobs and the economy.
