I still blame millionaire Ross Perot for Bill Clinton. Perot spent millions of his own money in a failed campaign for the Presidency. Perot was (still is?) a conservative and the votes he got would have been cast for George H. W. Bush. By splitting the Republican vote, the Country got stuck with Bill Clinton who won the election by a plurality.
I have heard a lot of talk about “Tea Party Candidates” that are splitting the votes and causing havoc in the Republican Party. The people talking about the Tea Party like they are outsiders are mistaken. The vast majority of us that identify ourselves as members of the Tea Party are Republicans. We just happen to be more conservative than the recent leadership of the party.
In the November election, there won’t be three candidates in most of these critical races. The Republican will simply be a more conservative Republican. The fact that a candidate identified themselves with the Tea Party movement only means they are not RINOs. The Tea Party candidate won the Republican nomination and eliminated the establishment backed candidate in the primary.
The Republican leadership seems taken aback that conservative candidates are beating the Party backed candidate. We do not need to elect Republicans who vote like Democrats, or will be out there selling the tax payers down the river so they can “reach across the aisle.” We don’t like liberal policies, and conservative members of Congress that identify themselves with the Tea Party will help stop the insane spending that is going on in Washington.
Speaking of three candidates on the ballot…Republican Marco Rubio has opened a 9.8 point lead over a flip flopping used to be a Republican but couldn’t accept defeat Crist. Meek is so far back that he already updated his resume. I’m sure Obama will make him the Czar of something. Please support the Marco Rubio campaign. Visit his website (http:marcorubio.com) and support a true conservative. Marco Rubio will be a great advocate for conservatives, a defender of freedom, and the American way of life… things that are currently under attack in this Country.
