Newt Gingrich & The Republican's Last Chance

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich has surged in the polls as the anyone but Mitt Romney choice for the Republican Presidential nomination.   There is no doubt that Gingrich may very well be the most knowledgeable Republican seeking the nomination.   Gingrich certainly understands American History and the workings of the federal government better than any other candidate running for the Presidency, including Socialist President Obama.  

And, Gingrich for the most part is a tried and true Conservative; though his personal life, which included various extra marital affairs and some ethical issues while in office are not the best example for any politician.  However, it appears that Gingrich has grown up and as a grandfather is more mature today.   Perhaps, Newt Gingrich converted to Catholicism as an act of penance because everyone knows that Catholic guilt is almost as good as Jewish guilt.  And, it is actually very good that Gingrich spent years in the wilderness managing his own small business, after leaving office, so Gingrich has some real life work experience out of government. 

So it could boil down to born again Conservative Mitt Romney, a well known flip flopper, or former Conservative Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, with his troubled past, when all is said and done.   If Romney loses in Iowa and New Hampshire, which would be an upset, Romney is done because he will not win in South Carolina and Florida even if he wins in Nevada.  It is also important to recognize that the Republican primaries are not winner take all.  

That is, all candidates that garner votes in the primaries will go to the Republican Convention with their delegates.    That probably means that Ron Paul, at least initially, will control about 10% of the Delegates at the Convention.   The other Delegates are likely to be controlled by Rick Perry, Michelle Bachman, Rick Santorum and Jon Huntsman.   Unless Romney goes to the Convention with a majority of the Delegates to win on the first vote, he may not be the Republican nominee because with the exception of any Delegates committed to fellow Mormon Jon Huntsman,  Delegates committed to these other candidates will vote for Newt Gingrich, or perhaps Rick Perry, if Perry ends up with a sizable number of Delegates. 

Socialist President Obama's team is compiling dirt on all Republican candidates.   There is not doubt that this will be the dirtiest election in American history because Obama will do anything to stay in power.  If Obama can make the campaign about the Republican candidate and Class Warfare, instead of Obama's failed Presidency, Obama wins.   The likely Republican Candidate whether Romney, Gingrich or Perry will focus on the numbers; high unemployment, high foreclosures, low GDP growth rate and all the job killer actions of the Obama Administration, which will be pretty powerful because cards talk and numbers don't lie; but of course, Socialists like President Obama do lie.  Even though Obama will spend a billion dollars to get out his propaganda, we Bloggers will be there telling the truth every single day of the campaign to make Obama a one term President. 

That is all well and good; but it is not smooth sailing for the Republican candidate in any case.   We will work to help Republicans retain control of the House of Representatives and take back the US Senate, as well as, win the Presidency.   Once that is accomplished in 2012 and 2014, the Republicans have one last chance to get our country back our track.   Republican hands are not clean related to allowing for the last hundred years of Socialist creep and the role Republicans played in accumulating our $15 Trillion National Debt.   Republicans too have been feeding at the trough for years using pork barrel spending to win elections to stay in power.

If we help Republicans gain control of the federal government, we need to see significant change to end the deficit spending that is bankrupting our country and pay off our National Debt.  The United States is at a tipping point.   We can't wait any longer to get our country back on track.   That means shrinking the size of the federal government from Obama's current 25% of GDP to no more than 17 or 18%.  We must also see a return to Constitutional limited government and away from Socialist control of our lives, so no more compromise with Socialists.   Meeting Socialists half way has led to a $15 Trillion National Debt.  It has to stop.  The repeal of ObamaCare is a good place to start. 

We need to see tax, education, energy, health care and entitlement significant reform.   We must have the enactment of a Balanced Budget Constitutional Amendment with limits on the ability to raise taxes, in addition to Congressional Term Limits to help end the corruption in Washington.   And, in order to protect our national sovereignty, it is time to define American citizenship, by Constitutional Amendment, to stop the illegal alien anchor baby problem.  

Of course, we must have a strong national defense, which includes securing our border once and for all.  Once done, we can implement a reasonable and humane plan to deal with 12 million Illegal Aliens.   We must protect our right to bear arms and the sanctity of life along with family values that are the foundation of our country.   This is the platform supported by the majority of the American people and the only way to restore economic growth and job creation again in our country.

So whether we have President Gingrich, Romney, or Perry, the Republican Party has once last chance to get it right.  If it turns out to be business as usual, the Republican Party will go the way of the WHIG Party.   What will emerge is the Conservative Party of America as a contrast to the current Socialist Party of America, led by President Obama.   The clock is ticking.   We can't wait any longer because our nation is at stake.   As Ronald Reagan always said, we need to see bold colors, not shades of pastel to get the job done. 

We must have real change to get our country back on track.   Any Republican that is playing games and thinks otherwise will find that the party is over.    We are serious about taking back our country in 2012 and 2014 to prevent the bankruptcy of our nation.   We can do it.   We must do it to preserve our freedom, our nation and way of life for the sake of our children and grandchildren.
