Early Republican polling each day continues to show Mitt Romney as the leader for the 2012 nomination, followed closely by Mike Huckabee. It appears thus far that Republicans are playing it safe. That's as nicely as I can put it. Are the Republicans truly going to continue the mistakes of the past, i.e. John McCain and Bob Dole?? It's almost as if they have a meeting and determine who's turn it is, based on seniority of times run.
As much as I do not support Donald Trump for President, there are things that can be learned from his rapid rise and fall from the polling of the last few weeks. What caused his rapid ascension in the Republican polling, in spite of his obvious past support to liberal politicians?? HE SPOKE HIS MIND!! HE ACTED LIKE A MAN WITH COJONES WHO STOOD FOR SOMETHING!!! Don't get me wrong, I think his motives are selfish and I would not vote for him for President, but if ever there was a moment for Republican candidates to realize what we are looking for in a candidate as it relates to attitude, this was the day.
Unfortunately the GOP has quickly put the blindfold back on and RINO's like Romney and Huckabee once again lead the polling, as their names are familiar and they represent the Republican establishment that refuses to rock the boat and tell it like it is.
It seems these days in the Republican Party that the individuals with the most testicular fortitude are females. Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann take a leadership role daily and stand firm in conservative principles in spite of an overwhelming liberal force which serves to demonize them with horrific rhetoric that not only targets them but members of their family. Yet the Republicans lift up the original author of socialized medicine, Mitt Romney, as their early frontrunner.
Hello!!! Wake up Republican Party!!! We, the conservative majority of America do not want another politician to run this country further into the ground. We yearn for someone that stands up for what is right, regardless of what the politically correct viewpoint is on the matter. We do not want any more wimps that attempt to please everyone. Right is right and wrong is wrong, and the sooner we get back to speaking plainly and clearly to both instead of blurring the line between the two is the day we begin to repair our Republic. It's as simple as that.
I post my opinions on this site regularly. I have made quite a few enemies and quite a few friends. Whichever side you fall on one thing is for sure...at least you know clearly what my views are and where I stand. All the Republicans need to do is stop settling for this wishy-washy stance of being afraid to make a stand for fear of who it might disenfranchise, and tell it like it is for a change. America hungers for a leader!! A warrior who speaks his mind instead of catering to whatever crowd he is talking to that day. Where is this man or woman? Will they run? The current field of candidates is as weak as it can be, minus Herman Cain, who just can't get any recognition or publicity going as of yet. Sarah??? Allen??? Michele??? Someone please grab the guidon and circle the formation!! The nation needs a warrior!!!
