No Robamaney – Evah!

Published by at 1:48 pm under 2012 Elections,All General Discussions

The establishment GOP better understand one thing right now. We The People do not care how much campaign money candidate Romney has, how well liked he is by the Political Industrial Complex or how nice his hair is – he will never be acceptable as the GOP nominee for President. Not now, not in 2012, not Evah!.

It is not just about RomneyCare and how it was the precursor model for ObamaCare. That is definitely enough reason to reject Romney on the grounds he is more Obama than Tea Party Libertarian or Small-Government Conservative.

It also not just about how Romney  leans toward government solutions first, instead or resisting the encroachment of big-government and looking to trim it back to something manageable and worthwhile. A trait he also shares with President Obama and which also is sufficient cause to reject Romney.

No, the 3rd strike against Obama-light (Robamaney) is the fact he has totally drank the Green Kool-Aid of Global Warming:

In other words, the Romney administration in 2005 essentially did what Barack Obama’s EPA wants to do now.  He imposed CO2 emission caps — the “toughest in the nation” — in an effort to curtail traditional energy production.  Not only did Romney impose these costly new regulations, he then imposed price caps to keep power companies from passing the cost along to the consumer.  As we have seen in RomneyCare, regulation and price controls eventually drive businesses into bankruptcy or relocation.

Who is dumb enough to think this pale GOP version of Obama would be a winning candidate in the primaries or the general? I am here to say clearly – as a independent who leans to the libertarian Tea Party and their small-government conservative views – forget about Romney (Robamaney) as the GOP nominee. Ain’t going to happen.

Now you want to know who is becoming the icon of the new libertarian movement comprised of right leaning independents, tea partiers and small-gov conservatives? The man from Georgia:

At the moment, the Georgia businessman is the only Republican with a lead of any kind over Obama, although former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney has held a similar advantage several times and is currently trailing the president by just two points [3]. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely U.S. Voters [1] shows Cain attracting 43% support, while Obama earns 41% [2].

3 things to note here: [1] this is a poll of likely voters which means it is more accurate than other polls, [2] Obama is polling at the ‘incumbent can’t ever win’ 41% mark, and [3] Mr. Inevitable (Robamaney) is polling below Obama and Cain.

Romney’s current status as front runner was completely buoyed by the myth of his inevitability as the only serious contender to Obama. Once that myth is gone (and it is rapidly vaporizing right now) then he becomes a too far left establishment pick the voters want nothing to do with.

If we wanted ObamaCare, we would vote Obama. If we wanted a champion of Al Gore’s Global Warming we would vote Obama. If we wanted knee-jerk, wasteful government solutions to the most miniscule challenges of our lives we would vote Obama.

Why vote for Obama’s pale twin – Robamaney?

If you want to vote AGAINST Obama you support Cain. If you want to vote for Main Street over the DC Political Industrial Complex you support Cain. If you want someone who would trim big government down to size you support Cain.

Get ready DC, We The People are about to rock your world with a true outsider who will have a mandate to clean up DC (not America).

Update: CNN Poll tells the same story – Romney stuck aroundn20% with Cain surging

    dhunter…don’t be so sensitive…I didn’t say I was gonna do anything illegal. I said I’d buy and pay taxes then sell used minus taxes. That’s entirely legal. I didn’t think up the ‘only pay it on new stuff’ part. That’s in the plan.
    Hey, someone just pointed out another problem to me. I’m retired, most of my income comes from money I’ve already paid my 30% income tax on. Now, when I spend my retirement income, I’m gonna be hit with that new 9% sales tax. I’d never support paying taxes again on money i’ve already paid taxes on. I don’t think anyone would be for that. Right? Oh well, just another bug in the plan that has to be worked out. No taxes on the money I spend from my retirement income. This is some serious stuff people and I don’t hear anyone addressing these problems. For every new dollar I have to pay, someone gets to pay a dollar less. I don’t want to be on the wrong side of that equation.

    Buying and paying taxes and selling charging no taxes = income loss not income gain.

    Cap gains taxes will be gone, taxes on dividends will be gone, estate tax GONE, if in retirement, I can trade those and have to pay a 9% sales tax thats’ OK by me, everyone needs some skin in the game to save the system, because at present it is very close to the complete collapse the Alinsky disciples are working towards.
    At that point all money becomes worthless and unless you hold hard assets that you can hang onto and barter with, we are all equally poor and beholden to the crumbs big government bestows upon us!

    You know I saw the same thing with Palin. She was just a magnet for those who usually sit on the sideline.

    Cain is the real deal.
