Standing against big government and for the people!

The conventional wisdom of this time of the political  cycle says that candidates running for president need to appeal to their base now, and then moderate to the muddled middle after securing their party's nomination.  However, as Rush likes to say, the conventional wisdom is wrong.  This is the typical view of politicians and their handlers: those who have had the power in the District of Confusion and our state capitols. 

Our time demands a real leader.  The difference between a real leader and the typical politician is that a real leader persuades people to the rightness of his/her cause.  Ronald Reagan persuaded people to the rightness of his cause.  Politicians "compromise their principles" in order to get things done (as the Sr. senator from my state has said).  I, and I believe many others in the Tea Party, have been looking for such a leader; someone who articulates a vision for America and reflects our values. 

 In an earlier post, I had said that I didn't see such a leader in the current field of candidates.  Perry and Bachmann are doing so now.  The real test will come when "the powers that be" within the old structure of the GOP will try to get the candidtes to moderate their message.  NOTE TO CAMPAIGN STAFFS: DON'T DO IT!  The people of this country are looking, just as we are (remember, we are America), for a leader with common sense values and the testicular fortitude (not to say that a female candidate couldn't have such fortitude) to restore our nation to greatness and bring us back from the brink.  The true test of the current field of contenders will be to distinguish the real leader from the politicians.

The Bilderburg thing does not bother me about Perry- people sometimes get invited - I would go to see what goes on there - since he wants public office he may have to deal with those people - knowledge is power - am more concerned about the personal life rumors - I called in to Roger Hedgcock in San Diego - a mentioned those problems with Perry - he blew it off as rumor - sent him some stuff - maybe he will look into it and see what is what maybe not..

I have to agree with you, Jerry....Bachman/West would be great!

I actually think Allen West would be a great Vice President he has the military background and has already proven that he loves this country and will help make it stays the America we all know and love.

With Perry's shady background I will stick with Bachmann for the #1 seat.

Bill Davis, I am with you! Why should I vote for any lying fraud who doesnt acknowledge the ineligible tyrant in OUR White House who is systematically dismantling our nation with complicity of all congressional republicans!!! They are all complicit and guilty of aiding and abetting!!! They have forsaken their Oath to the Constittution to defend against all enemies and to protect We the People from harm!!!

If your last statement be true then we must pass over Perry (who flagellates on major issues) and select the Mrs of the man whose clinic tells the truth about gay evolution.

Perry/Palin/Cain/Bachmann/West.....any combo!

Let's not forget Perry is Bilderburg, so he'll be answering to someone other than the American people. He needs to be seriously vetted...

Lets look at this:  1)  We only appoint strict Constitutionalist to any and all Federal Court Benches.  2)  We enact a Constitutional Amendment that sets realistic term limits for all members of Congress, and include a section that prohibits any member of Congress from becoming a Lobbiest for not less than ten years after leaving office, the same to apply to any Officer in the Military and any civilian employee.  3)  We enact a Balaced Budget Amendment to would require a 4/5s Majority vote in both houses of Congress to spend any money in excess of the receipts to the US Treasury for the previous year.  All Budgets must be in balance to the previous years receipts to the US Treasury.  4)  We Amend the Constitution to prohibit any US Military Forces from serving under and or wearing the Ensignia or Uniform of any foreign power to include the UN, this would also mean operational control.  5)  We amend the Second Article of the Constitution to clearly define Natural Born as both parents must be of United States Citizenship, by birth or Naturalization.  6)  We likewise enact an Amendment that would require the removal of any federal officer, appointed or elected who refused to abide by the rule of law, and the laws enacted by Congress.  and Finally 7)  We enact an amendment to the Constitution that would require that all laws enacted by Congress must cite the specific Article, Section and Clause granting Congress the Power and Authority to enact said law.  How is that for a plan to start with.

Yup...that eliminates Romney.  I wouldn't know who I was getting if I voted for him.  Great leaders have a moral compass...you always know which direction they will lead you at all times.

As voters, the key thing we need to focus on is track record. Not sound bytes. Not stump speeches. Not what the media says. Not catchy phrases. Track record. Actual, real voting records. Track records define patterns and we can deduce the real intent of the candidate only by that measure.

 

After that measure, the question, for me, is who can the candidate bring to the team with them and what are those people's records.
