“Bush-like” would be an improvement over these two. “W” exhibited a tangible, mind-dead sincerity they both lack. George, I believe, actually thought he was doing “the best thing” as his epistemologically-challenged mindset conceived it. (Even as he and Rove methodically dismembered the Reagan Coalition). That sincerity had a measurable electoral value (and still does in strongholds of the GOP). People could like Bush. Romney, by contrast, radiates perfectly calibrated technique; the “perfect” positioning (that morphs to pander, State by State, as he campaigns), the perfect smile, the perfect hair, and the best sincerity focus-groups can manufacture. He scared me at first, but it became clear that the heartland, rural America, fly-over country, the conservative base could, somehow, detect his artificiality.
They can smell a droid. Droids show up at their front door regularly selling siding and windows and magazines and when they go car-shopping. They could discern what the Massachusetts Magician was. I was amazed. They can’t understand the 80-year old mechanism of Socialist expansion of government, they haven’t got a clue about the monetary system or foreign policy, but they can smell a phoney on the right.
It is my contention that Obama unleashed spiritual power during the election and he could do that because he was completely committed to one of the few powers that vie for the heart of the world. Obama’s is the same vision, at its core, that fueled the expansion of World Socialism from the end of WWII to the inauguration of Reagan at the average rate of another country devoured every 283 days. Digested, they were, to absolute tyranny.
The Bushes and Romneys and McCains are dangerous because it is precisely their candidacies that prevent us from running someone who will take us in the opposite direction, to freedom, to justice and the rule of law. We must nominate, instead, a champion, a true believer in the American ideal of Rights that are Inalienable because they are an endowment of our Creator, not the product of government. A man committed to the Constitution.
Three spiritual visions struggle for dominance on the world’s stage: Marxism (the victorious total atheist re-distribution system), Fascism (the hybrid corporate socialism of bourgois market States), and Primeval Islam (the political cult that between 632 and 732 brutally and totally conquered five million square miles from India to the Atlantic).
The fourth spiritual vision is unique. It is totally different because it does NOT seek to dominate. It is the only path to freedom:
“You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles dominate them, and their men of high positions exercise power over them. But it must not be like that among you. On the contrary, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant.” [Mk.10 42-44]
The United States of America was the first nation in history to put that vision into political practice. It is the soul of our founding documents.
We can accept no compromise vision. To do so will mean ongoing defeat at the polls and the destruction of the Republic.
