What is Wrong With Conservatives?

I often wonder what is wrong with conservative voters.  Too many people either can’t or won’t see the forest for the trees.  People decry John Boehner for being a coward but take a look at voters who call themselves conservatives.  I belong to 25 conservative social network sites and interact with people on facebook almost daily.  The biggest majority of those I come in contact with are so afraid of Barack Obama and what he will bring in a second term that they are willing to vote for “anyone but Obama”.  I wrote about this very subject a few months back (https://www.conservativedailynews.com/2011/10/anyone-but-obama-be-careful-what-you-ask-for/) .  Fear is not a good motivator in something so important.  It blinds people to the danger ahead.

My support of John Dummett (www.johndummett.us) was termed by one person on facebook as running headlong into an ambush.  I find that ironic as that is my exact example of voting for Mitty the Poo, the all-white Obama.  Romney went from being a businessman to a career politician and has embraced the leftist mantra throughout his political career.  His excuse for not vetoing abortion in Massachusetts is that the legislature would just override him. Well, stand up for the principles you claim to believe in and force them to override your values based veto.   That is just one example of his lame excuses for advancing the leftist agenda.  Romneycare is another.  He has said he wants to repeal Obamacare; well, except for this part, and for that part, and this other thing.  He won’t repeal it, he wrote it.

Mitty has been endorsed by none other than George Soros, Obama’s main supporter, and one of the main architects of the coming New World Order (https://www.ask.com/web?q=george%20soros%20on%20mitt%20romney&o=15527&l=dis&prt=360&chn=retail&geo=US&ver=6 ).  That doesn’t give me much confidence in a future with Mitty as president.

History is full of societies tiring of one ruler and running headlong to someone who promises utopia but turns out to be a homicidal maniac.  During the reign of Louis XVI in France the people became so discontented they followed Robespierre in a revolt. Everything went well until Robespierre and his murdering thugs gained complete control of the land and then the very peasants who had installed them found themselves victims of the brutality they thought they were overthrowing.

In 1917 Russian peasants followed Vladimir Lenin in his quest for a “worker’s paradise” and overthrew Czar Nicholas, only to find Lenin and Stalin were much worse.  The poverty and hunger weren’t removed, only enhanced by torture, murder, and slave labor camps that killed an estimated 50 million people in the next 30 years.

In post-World War I Germany Adolph Hitler and his group of murderers promised another utopia. Things went well until they gained complete control over society, then things went downhill quickly.  They murdered 6 million Jews and more than 5 million Poles, Slaves, Gypsies, Homosexuals, and anyone else who didn’t meet with their satisfaction.  The “savior” of the Weimar Republic turned into a nightmare of war and terror that destroyed or devastated 4 nations, including his own, and killed an estimated 50 million people.  The Chinese people found the same situation with Chairman Mao and his “re-education camps”.

Now we come to America in 2012 and I see history repeating itself.  Mitt Romney, who was less conservative than John McCain (of all people) in 2008, is the darling of those who despise anything conservative.  He is loved by the Republican Party establishment but loathed by We the People, yet most of those I interact with will vote for him as a protest vote against Obama.  And those same people accuse me of casting a “protest vote” because I intend to write-in John Dummett.  Supposedly conservative people are running in fear of Obama, right into the trap being set by Soros and his minions who want Romney to seem like a great alternative when he is nothing of the sort.

My “protest” vote isn’t a protest vote; it is a vote for the Constitution.  Why is it that people who call themselves conservatives will vote for a man they know is no where near conservative?  Their fear prevents them from seeing reality.  That fear causes them to ignore the red flags that are flying high and vote for a man they know isn’t what they want.  People know what Mitt Romney is yet are willing to follow him out of fear.  If our founding fathers had this same amount of courage we would still be “sipping tea at two” and talking funny.

As long as We the People are willing to settle for the lesser of two evils we will never have any other option.  Just as the Jews peacefully walked into the cattle cars that took them to Auschwitz, Sobibor, Treblinka, Birkenau, and the other death camps Americans who call themselves conservatives are peacefully walking into the New World Order cattle cars that will take them to the FEMA camps for “re-education”.  Many are hoping for “peace in our time” but will find only tyranny in their acquiescence to the “peace in our time” idea.

Appeasement has never worked and never will.  Voting for Mitt Romney out of fear of Obama is trying to appease the New World Order and it can’t be done.  I recently read a book called “The Harbinger” by Jonathan Cahn.  It is classified as fiction but it is more prophetic than fiction.  The book compares America to the ancient Israelites and the suffering brought about by their arrogance in the face of God.  The attacks on September 11, 2001 were just the beginning, a warning from God to turn back to Him but our leaders and most of the population ignored the warning and vowed to rebuild bigger and better.  It is the “Isaiah 9:10 effect” come to America.  The financial collapse in 2008 was another warning that went unheeded by America and we find ourselves floundering in debt, depravity, and fear.  More is coming, and soon unless we heed the warnings and turn our nation around.

Mitt Romney is another judgment coming our way.  IF he wins in November, which I don’t expect, we will still find ourselves further down the road to tyranny.  Remember that a Republican president and Republican controlled Congress gave us the Department of Homeland Security, the TSA, and the “Patriot Act”.  Will Mitty actually cut out the czars and dismantle the bureaucracy that is strangling our nation financially and destroying our freedoms one at a time?  I doubt it!!  I know Romney seems great after four years of Obama but he isn’t.  The answer will not be found in a NWO globalist.

We have been travelling down the road to dictatorship for many years.  Both political parties have taken us there by playing on our fears and offering the “good cop, bad cop” scenario for the last 20 years.  How long has it been since we have seen anything but “the lesser of two evils” from the Republican Party?  Ronald Reagan was the last time I voted “for” a candidate, and the only time since Nixon.  We have had George H. W. Bush, George W. Bush, John McCain, and now Mitt Romney since Reagan.  When will the tide turn?  People have been telling me “vote for this guy and we will get a better candidate next time” since 1988. When will it actually happen?  In the mean time government, along with the debt, has exploded in size under both political parties and three terms of Republican presidents.

The answer to our situation is a true conservative who will make the Constitution the centerpiece of his administration.  John Dummett (www.johndummett4president.webs.com) will keep his promises.  He isn’t a career politician, he is a working class man who has a family, works 40 hours a week, and tries to survive just as I do.  I am tired of the roller coaster of lies, broken promises, empty promises that are never intended to be kept, and career politicians who are only looking at their power, prestige, and wealth at the expense of We the People.  It has to stop and We the People have to stop it.  Voting for the lesser of two evils won’t get it done.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.
