And no other "Conservative" Republican could win for the same reasons. The moderate Republican base would never vote for a Santorum, Gingrich, etc or any "Conservative". If you can't get the two sides to work together to defeat a Communist then the Republican Party should just close up shop and dissolve the party altogether. Maybe split into two or three parties. We already have "conservative" parties like the Constitution Party and the "Libertarian Party". Even had populists like Ross Perot that gave the presidency to Bill Clintoon, not once but twice.
Romney did hurt himself by swatting away the hands of the Tea Party and Libertarian wings when they extended a proverbial "olive branch". When they should have come together, all sides just squabbled instead of worked to unseat the Communist-in Chief. We really do get the government we deserve in the end. We did this to ourselves and we deserve every fecking ounce of pain that is inflicted upon us as a result.
Which is why I have been prepping for a long time. I am fortunate enough to go off the radar and go "off grid" if necessary and stop contributing to the tax base - stop "feeding the beast". I am perfectly capable to letting America collapse into chaos and societal collapse. I guess what I'm saying is that I'm just too tired to fight it anymore and I have thrown in the towel. I won't be wasting my time voting in rigged elections rife with voter fraud, with mediocre candidates, turncoats, etc. It's obvious that the Republican Party is effectively finished. We had our "Red Pill - Blue Pill" moment and we collectively chose the "Blue Pill".
The culture of the "New America" is now swiftly turning sharply to the socialist left and the majority of the people desire a Nanny State. They can have it as I am closing in on my final days anyway and will be beyond caring. Sometimes you just have to call it quits and laugh at the absurdities of life. America had its last chance this last election and they threw it all away for more "free stuff" (love those "Obama Phones").
We never learn from history and what we are seeing in America is the final stages of "The Fall of Rome" all over again when the people raided and plunder the treasury, taxed the rich into being poor, and were content with "bread and circusses" as the Roman Republic collapsed around them only to be replaced with an authoritarian emperical government.
