Now that the left has squeeked out the latest election thanks to more Republican weakness and rushing to the middle to satisfy the so-called "moderate" voters, thereby alienating their base and Conservative Americans, they are in full offense using every angle possible to increase their power and continue their domination of the Republican Party.
The comment noted above is just another example of how liberals distort reality to marginalize their opponents, yes, Saul Alinsky tactics apply. Yet, there he is explaining how old and tired those ideas are. The left in fact is running hell-bent towards Marxism, using Saul Alinsky's "Rules For Radicals" as their playbook, openly embracing history's Communist dictators, practices and principles. The exact opposite of this hack liberal writer's remarks. His words - as is the case with all radical, liberal, Alinsky, leftists - are meant to deceive not inform. That is the essence of our modern media, they are deceivers not informers.
That is what the radical Marxist, Communist Revolutionaries do, they tell the big lie - and lots of little lies - every day, and people believe them. They have mastered the message and the rules to diminish thier opposition. And it seems that their opposition - the Republican Party - is all too willing to comply. Evidence of this sad fact is contained in this article. The Republican that Allen West defeated to become the Republican nominee for the House seat in his district came out after his defeat IN SUPPORT of West's Democratic challenger!
Yes, you read that right, the liberal establishment Republican threw his support behind the Democrat instead of Allen West. Tea Party Conservatives are not only battling the left, they are battling the establishment Republican Party that wants no part of true Constitutional reform, of tackling the big issues and restoring America to its previous form. They seem content to offer Americans "liberal light", Socialism and ultimately failed-state Communism at a slower pace then the radical left.
Are you satisfied with the Republican response that came from House Speaker John Boehner after Obama was declared the winner in Tuesday's election? Do you feel like he is fighting for the Conservative values you know are necessary for the survival of America, our culture, and our free-market economy? Or did you see a weak kneed politician throwing himself at the feet of Barack Obama once again, caving before the negotiations have even begun?
The establishment Republican Party will be all to happy to cooperate with the left in their demonization of Conservatives as they have demonstrated before, as Boehner just stated in an interview 2 days ago - there is no Tea Party caucus to speak of. Really? How do you feel about that? Not only has President Obama and all of his radical minions minimized and marginalized you and I as Americans, the establishment Republican Party is parroting the same language.
Nice, real nice. Makes you want to line up and take all the criticism and insults that come with being Conservative doesn't it? Makes you want to do your all to support the party doesn't it? They apparently don't understand how they achieved what little power they are clinging to in Washington.
I can't help but think we are approaching our 1968 moment in history. I was too young to experience it first hand, but from what I have read the radical left of the Democratic Party had had enough towing the line with the establishment Democrats, the JFK style Democrats, and all hell broke loose at their Convention in Chicago. The party was never the same, the radicals eventually won and are reaping the rewards of that battle today.
The Republican Party needs to be reformed. They do not support Conservative principles beyond passive lip service. They do not support Conservative candidates that have to fight for their lives against the radical left machine like Michelle Bachmann just experienced, eking out a win when a little support from the Republican Party could have proven helpful. No, Tea Party Conservatives are in a battle with establishment Republicans first, the liberal left second. Only time will tell the outcome, but it will not be decided in the next 2 years. We will continue to battle, and eventually reform the party, or it will die under the weight of its own cowardice.
Conservatives are tired of the lies from the left. We are tired of being labeled racists and extremists. We are tired of the non-stop lies from the media. We are tired of the false narrative that is pushed day in and day out, and never challenged by the establishment Republicans. Allen West was 100% correct in all he spoke of and not one single Republican has the guts to back him up. They are too afraid of being labeled "extreme". They are too afraid of being disliked and ending up in the cross-hairs of the liberal attack machine. They do not have the guts to take the heat, speak the truth and begin the process of reclaiming the message instead of rolling over and hiding at the first sign of criticism.
It is disgusting to sit by and watch, knowing how valuable what they are throwing away is, knowing that the inevitable destination of these horrible liberal policies is a failed-state country, tyranny, oppression, violence and mayhem. It won't be pretty and there certainly won't be any Republicans around to protect you or me from the tyrants that are accumulating their power with the help of those very same sell-out establishment Republicans.
As a result there may come a time when Conservatives decide they want their own voice, their own platform and to speak the truth that so many Americans want to hear and need to hear. Too many Americans are being fed non-stop lies without any understanding of what is really happening. They believe there is a war on women, Sarah Palin is an idiot, Joe Biden is a brilliant statesman, the media is telling the truth, Republicans need to attract more minorities to win elections, Conservatives are extremists in their radical views, the Tea Party is full of dangerous extremists. Lies, all lies. And don't get me started on all the Obama lies we've had to listen to the last four years. It's outrageous but an ill-informed public sits idly by and believes the constant lies and looks no further.
A new political party would certainly shake things up, but just maybe we could then get the opportunity to run on our principles and see if people will follow. We have not had that chance in a long while, we didn't get it in 2008 and we didn't get it Tuesday. We got liberal light, go along, don't be controversial, don't expose the lies and corruption of the left, be nice and stay on message and maybe you won't upset anyone. It was pathetic to watch and ultimately ineffective.
We need a leader that will tell the truth and stand on their convictions, then we can see if the Conservative message sells, if the American message sells, if the Traditional Values message sells. I look forward to that day. Until then I certainly hope Allen West and other Conservative Patriots like him continue to fight to get their message out. They are the leaders of tomorrow, the leaders of the Conservative cause, the leaders of truth.

Their version of reality is that it is all about the demographics. They say the country is "changing", the ethnic make-up is rapidly changing, and the party of the "old white guy" is not keeping up. The Republican Party has not adjusted its message to attract the increasing minority groups in America. They are after all at war with women, want to deport all illegal aliens and would prefer that all blacks were - in the oh so eloquent words of Joe Biden - "back in chains."
If you read my short eBook titled "The Insanity of Liberalism" this will sound familiar, and you will immediately recognize it for what it is - them pushing a false argument to further their acquisition of power. They are on offense, as always, and pushing the false argument to further diminish the power of the Republican Party and to marginalize Conservatism. They are not offering thoughtful analysis, they are not accurately describing events that have occurred, they are pushing a false argument to further their power and diminish their enemy's power (you and me).
Now, let's look at some numbers and you will quickly see why Mitt Romney lost and why it has absolutely nothing to do with demographics.
I will try to make this as simple as possible.In 2008 a fairly weak candidate in John McCain managed to get just under 60 million Americans to the voting booths. That number, as of about 1:00pm central time today for Mitt Romney was only 57,475,000 (rounding). A full 2,500,000 less.
That fact in and of itself should speak volumes to those of us on the losing side. How is it possible that after 4 years of being pounded by Obama, the emergence of the Tea Party, the 2010 mid-term shellacking the Democrats took and all of the build up to and intensity of the political conversation the last couple years, that 2.5 million fewer Americans show up to vote against the Democrats? I would have expected several million more to turn out yesterday than in 2008. I will offer my opinion below, but first let's look at just how close this election really was, and why the demopgraphic argument is false.
I looked at 4 swing states, Wisconsin, Ohio, Virginia and Florida, that if won by Romney would have given him 273 electoral votes, enough to become the 45th President of the United States. Let's look at the vote counts:
Total votes for Obama yesterday 1,060,796
Scott Walker Recall election vote 1,334,450
Margin of victory with Walker totals + 273,654
Total votes for Romney yesterday 972,294
Deficit of Romney votes to Walker - 362,156
10 electoral votes
Mitt Romney fell short of the Wisconsin recall election vote total by over 350,000. A fraction of those voters could have easily swung the state over to Romney. Where were they yesterday? Demographics? I think not.
Total votes for Obama yesterday 2,665,144
Total votes for McCain in 2008 2,677,820
Margin of victory with McCain totals + 12,676
Total votes for Romney yesterday 2,564,446
Deficit of Romney votes to McCain - 113,374
20 electoral votes
If Romney gets McCain totals, he wins, instead he comes short of even McCain totals by 113,374. Where were those voters yesterday? Demographics? I think not.
Total votes for Obama yesterday 1,661,703
Total votes for McCain in 2008 1,725,005
Margin of victory with McCain totals + 63,302
Total votes for Romney yesterday 1,617,922
Deficit of Romney votes to McCain - 107,083
13 electoral votes
If Romney gets McCain totals, he wins easily, instead he comes short of even McCain totals by 107,083. Where were those voters yesterday? Demographics? I think not.
Total votes for Obama yesterday 4,062,897
Total votes for McCain in 2008 4,046,219
Additional needed to win in 2012 - 16,678
Total votes for Romney yesterday 3,997,497
Deficit of Romney votes to McCain - 48,272
27 electoral votes
Romney only needed to outperform McCain's efforts of 2008 by 16,678 as of this afternoon to beat Obama in Florida. Where were those additional voters needed yesterday? Demographics? I think not.
Total electoral votes of 4 states 70
Total electoral votes won by Romney 203
Total electoral votes with 16,678 more votes than 2008 273
Let's summarize, John McCain's performance from 2008 would have won him Ohio and Virginia, and come up less than 17,000 votes short in Florida. At that point, anything can happen. Scott Walker's performance would have won Wisconsin for Romney by over several hundred thousand! The votes are there folks, the Republican Party just needs to find the right person to get them to the voting booth on election day. That didn't happen yesterday, not demographics.
So, why did Mitt Romney lose to John McCain by over 2.5 million votes, and more specifically why did his totals under-perform Governor Walker's in Wisconsin by over 1/3 from less than a year ago?
Do I need to even write it out? The Tea Party elevated Governor Scott Walker to an easy victory in his Wisconsin recall election and it was Conservatives that turned out for Sarah Palin in 2008 that garnered McCain the level of support that easily out-performed Mitt Romney's 2012 efforts.
There is no other explanation. I know, I lived it. As the 2012 election cycle began revving up nearly two years ago I swore I would not vote for another liberal RINO after holding my nose to vote for McCain in 2008. Recognizing the importance of removing Obama from office I eventually came around and got on board with the "anybody but Obama" idea, and enthusiastically put all of my support behind Mitt Romney.
However, at the end of the day, as we have witnessed in 2008 and now in 2012, liberal light RINO's are a losing ticket, no matter how much lipstick you put on it. Not even Conservative favorite Sarah Palin could salvage John McCain's failed campaign, but because of her John McCain by far out-performed Mitt Romney's performance of yesterday.
We have 4 years to continue our efforts to reform the Republican Party and find true Conservatives that can deliver the message needed to turn out those 2.5 million Americans that stayed home yesterday, and recruit even more with our winning message. Yesterday, 2008 Republican voter levels, and an additional 16,678 in Florida, would have won Mitt Romney the Presidency.
Do not listen to the pundits bloviating about the demographics, happily jumping on board the liberal mantra of the day, the newest "false argument" in a long line of false arguments they spew, and establishment types on both sides seem all too willing to run with.
We are the Tea Party Conservatives, and we are the solution for what ails this country, it is not about demographics.

The rhetoric of the left has no limits, Barack Obama is fabricating enemies out of thin air. Throwing anything and everything he can at Mitt Romney in his last, desperate attempt to paint him as the evil rich guy. Who he really is, a point that was made very clearly during the first Presidential debate, resulted in a seismic shift in the polls towards Romney the very next day.
So, go ahead Barack, you are a desperate, lying, pathetic liberal hack and unfortunately for you a majority of the people that will be casting their ballots on Tuesday have decided for themselves who Mitt Romney is, and they don't believe you. Enjoy your new home in Hawaii, feel free to stay out of the headlines and off of the mainland for as long as humanly possible, we've quiet simply had enough of your radical communist revolutionary, anti-American, hate the rich, class-warfare, revenge, punish your enemies tactics for a good long time. We are not the America that you and your comrades are so desperately trying to turn us into. Not even close.
