Well, Republicans have doomed the country to yet another 4 years of the Obama Administration, when they elected Mitt Romney as their choice of a candidate. I've mentioned in several articles that if Republicans picked Romney, they would surely lose the general election.
Aside from his Mormon (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) background which makes him unelectable in the minds of most voters as the religion is viewed by many as a cult. Romney is also lacking in the trust department since he has flip-flopped on many important issues since running in the primaries the last time around.
The Republican Primaries essentially had two candidates this year that would have beaten Obama at the polls this 11/6/2012 in Herman Cain and Ron Paul.
Herman Cain, aside from being ruined by sex scandals dug up on him by the Democrats and the Romney camp had very good ideas for bringing the country back on track from the financial ruin by both the Bush Administration and the Obama Administration.
Ron Paul would also have garnered the support necessary to beat Obama in the general election, as many polls taken while he was still running showed him clearly beating Obama in the Presidential election.
Since Republicans pride themselves on moral values, Cain could have never been their choice. Ron Paul however, was their best bet in getting a Republican into office this time around and yet, they let the boat leave them by voting for Romney.
Ron Paul was viewed as an extremist in his views. What many Republicans fail to realize is many of Paul's values are conservative in nature and fit very well with their core values. Some of his extreme views were looked upon as conspiracies and borderline lunatic fringe, but in the overall scheme of things political, Paul would have been a refreshing change for the country. He would have also been ahead of Obama in most polls and the clear winner on Election Day.
This is the second election in a row that Republicans have picked a candidate that has no chance of winning. This is because rather than voting for the person who is the best candidate they have allowed the media and the Democrats to influence their choice. In not wanting to choose a candidate who seems too extreme to the media and Democrats Republicans again, are left with a candidate that cannot win in the general election.
It might be of interest to Republicans to know that their icon Ronald W. Reagan would have also been looked upon as an extremist in his views as well, in today's political climate. Yet, no Republican would say Reagan was a lousy President.
Republicans need to realize that it will take a person who is out of the norm and has different ideas to regain the White House and quit choosing these clowns like Romney and McCain who will say and do anything simply to get elected while they clearly have no core ideals.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
