Where to start?
I suppose it’s been about a month since my last post. I’ve been busy with work, and frustrated with the way the elections have been turning out. It seems the mainstream media has done a great job sidelining Ron Paul. I did however get a pinch of excitement yesterday to see that Rick Santorum has left the race; which means there is only one cannon fodder candidate left to stand against Mitt Romney. I suspect Newt will drop out soon, and then it will be a straight battle between Ron and Mitt. I was however disappointed to see how quickly Glenn has thrown in his support behind Mitt. And this is precisely why I do not follow nor trust Glenn Beck anymore. I used to love Glenn. I have many of his books, and I agree on many of the things that he says. What bothers me is how easily he ignores and sidelines Ron Paul, even though he is the only candidate who is standing up for all the American principles that Glenn so enthusiastically preaches about. And now he has thrown in the towel to get behind a progressive like Mitt Romney, who provided the blueprint for Obama-care. So whose side is Glenn really on?
I’m still vouching for Ron Paul. I’m still vouching for the constitution, and a man of his word who will defend and restore it. I will not vote for Mitt Romney or Barack Obama.
Glenn might be on the right track with much of what he says, but I will not get behind another progressive candidate just because he is a republican. As far as I see it, the democrats as Glenn points out do represent socialism, bordering communism these days, but as far as I see it, the republicans are corporatists bordering fascism these days also, and neither side is good for this country. I want to live in a free world that respects individuals and the rule of law. I want to live in a country that respects individual rights and liberties, and gives everyone a chance to create the future for themselves, without robbing from others to do so.
I find it funny that George Soros himself says that there is not much difference between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama. Glenn has spent much of the last few years bashing Soros on a daily bases for being a progressive, and yet now he is supporting the same candidate that Soros supports.
I will not support Mitt Romney. I find it a shame that Glenn will.
And for those who think that the republican presidential race is over. I will leave you with this:
Warren Harding went into the brokered 1920 convention with only 6% of the delegates, but emerged as the party’s nominee. Harding won the general election in a landslide and took a very non-interventionist approach to the Depression of 1921.
Ron Paul will be the republican candidate at the end of the convention. Or else Barack Obama will win the next general election.
I suggest you stand with liberty and a candidate of integrity. Where did Glenn’s integrity go? Does he really stand for American values? I can’t tell, but I suggest you lead your own values, and not just listen to what someone else says.
