Conservative Victories of 2012

First of all, the reason the GOP didn't benefit from these issues is that they did not support them. Remember, e.g., how we were able to grab some of the black vote by constantly pounding school vouchers and standing up to the teacher's unions? Secondly, before we nominate another centerist twit who doesn't want to restore the Constitution would someone on the right ponder this: Here in Wisconsin our GOP stood up to the public sector unions, took unapologetic conservative positions, and GAINED strength in the legislature even as Romney lost the state. Across the river in Minnesota their GOP took center-left positions, agreeing to TWO publicly financed stadiums. The Dems took over in November LESSON?
Now I'm off to fill up a truck with close to $4 a gallon diesel. This price brought to us by Dems who are hostile toward fossil fuel - and by Republicans who accept the premise that cheap energy is evil. But don't worry I know the arguments in favor of voting for Romney because of the alternative. And it might make me think of voting for him - until I get to the pumps and fill up for $900+, and remember all the GOP "moderate" quislings who have refused to attack the environmental industry over the years.
As the American people see that Romney has more hostility toward conservatives than he has for the leftists currently in power they are helped to come to the conclusion that conservatives are evil and dangerous.
The right can be successfully portrayed as evil because "moderate" Republicans like Romney let them. Note how Romney had no problem attacking Bachmann and Santorum in a scorched-earth stop at nothing manner but refuses to attack Obama on Fast & Furious, Rezco, the crony capitalism (a.k.a. bribery) of Solyndra and similar corporations, etc., etc. Could we stop all this crazy gun control talk if Romeny started asking questions about the violence in Chicago? If he asked why if gun control is the answer why were there two massacres in Canada and Norway?

And the steel-spined GOP Congress will drag him along, eh? A vote for Romney is a vote to permanently give the electorate nothing but a choice between left & radical.

Romney supported the Global Warming hoax. But now he's going to fight back against the junk science and save inexpensive electric power in the face of concentrated elite opposition? Romney thought that the cure for what ails our medical field was more government involvement. But now he's going to go to back to get rid of ObamaCare and let loose the market with measures like legalizing inexpensive catastrophic policies? Talk about laughable.

Sure have. Earth is warming. But the effects predicted by the alarmists (e.g. increased equatorial thunderstorms, more hurricanes) have not happened. Since the alarmists' predictions have not happened, unlike those of us who said in 1995 that Catron County would burn if not logged. Data compiled by "scientists" who fake data and conspire to blackball those who don't agree with them, and who are financially supported only if they toe the enviro line, is not something I waste time with.

The way the GOP did after we won in '94? As one of the wise users out west who was kicked to the side as Gingrich & Co. embraced the enviros, somehow I doubt there will be much opposition. For example, we witness the attack on coal, and cheap electricity, but not a peep from the GOP. We see constant race-baiting, but not a peep from the GOP. Total silence on the fact that gov't health care will lead to two systems, gov't for the poor and good cash-based care for the rich. But I should vote for one who supported government health care and the global warming hoax because he has a "R" after his name? Stick with the McLame Romney paradigm. You'll get as many independent votes as you got enviro votes after you screwed your loyal supporters

I have no doubt. If Romney gets elected, he will take us further down the road to leftism than Obama - for he will have no opposition. The left knows they can manipulate him (I used to have to go to Massachusetts a lot and I saw it done when he was governor). A vote for Romney will show them something. It will show them, once again, that we can be taken for granted.

CO2 was supposed to lead to increased storms around the equator. Never happened. After Katrina, we were supposed to live with increased storms. Never happened. This summer, the UK is having cold, wet weather. Never reported. When we had a cold spell recently, many leftist sheeple told me "weather is not climate." Now it is. How convenient. But the number one reason to doubt that man is causing global warming: People with the facts on their side don't fake the data, nor do they personally attack those with another viewpoint.
