Election 2012: When Believing Isn't Enough Anymore
"...full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." - William Shakespeare

Once again radio host Michael Savage of The Savage Nation nails it. Lately, Savage has said that Mitt Romney is electable when pitted against Obama. In the same breath, Savage has stated that Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul are not electable at all, and is precisely on target as to why.

Once again radio host Michael Savage of The Savage Nation nails it. Lately, Savage has said that Mitt Romney is electable when pitted against Obama. In the same breath, Savage has stated that Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul are not electable at all, and is precisely on target as to why. Gingrich is a nasty little man and nothing but a politician covered in his own dirt. Ron Paul, while he has some good ideas, is unelectable if only for the fact that he presents himself as a nutcase with outlandish expectations of a president’s power.

Of course, this all rides on our belief in the electoral process. My advice is to wait and see who is invited to the Bilderberg Conference this spring. Then you will know who will be anointed president. To think those in power for a hundred or more years would voluntarily give it up to people like you and me is the ultimate in hubris. It is chutzpah writ large.

But the harsh reality is that no one can be elected unless they are a centrist. Obama got through the radar because of his race. No other reason. Then, like a sprung trap, we found out what he was all about: absolutely no experience empowered by a radical past and radical, terrorist friends whose dreams revolved around the destruction of our government. But we let that one slide.

If the Conservative pundits are determined not to make the same mistakes they did in 2008 (i.e. handing the election to Obama with inner squabbling about having no “real” Conservative candidate) they need to get behind someone and do it now. The “Anyone But Obama” strategy must be adopted sooner than later if you believe in the electoral process.

As much as I hate to say it, Gingrich was a class act on the latest Republican Debate of 2012. Calling the media what they were was so show-stopping it was astounding. The fact that his fellow candidates did not feed into the obvious leftist smear tactics of our media shows that. But on the same level it showed a side of Gingrich that is both his ally and his enemy: his ability to go for the throat. This has made him almost universally detested by those who worked with him in Congress on both sides of the aisle.

In any event, the sad fact remains that Mitt Romney seems like the only viable candidate who can communicate effectively enough to challenge Obama, who is but a puppet of merely lucky writers. And, as the Republicans did in 2008, the other candidates are currently trying to torpedo Romney while at the same time not realizing that they, themselves, are completely unelectable on their own. So, it looks like this ship will sink again.

To me, the last remaining hope is for Hillary Clinton to resign her position as Secretary of State and run against Obama. I never thought I would say that. But I think she could beat him. After all, we do need a real man in the White House. Unfortunately, that would mean Hillary Clinton who, like it or not, is a person of great personal strength and political power. Oh, and she was invited, along with Obama, to the Bilderburg Conference in the spring of 2008. But to our loss would be the presence of the quintessential scumbag: Bill Clinton. I guess we have to take the bad with “that which doesn’t suck.”

Make no mistake. I am not a Republican but I am certainly not a Democrat. I have proudly registered “No Party” for the past several years. If you still believe your vote makes a difference, then at least ponder what I have said…and will continue to say up until November.

If you’re one of the ones like me who knows that the president is decided by huge corporate families and old bloodlines, then you can just make popcorn, kick up your feet and watch it happen.

In the meantime, listen to a solid Independent thinker like Michael Savage. Once you have divested yourself of the two party system, you will understand that everyone is for sale and you don’t reap the profits.
