A Clear Choice
By Scott Rohter, March 2012

There needs to be a clear choice in this next election between Barack Obama, and whoever the Republican Party chooses to run against him in November.  That is why I am not supporting Mitt Romney, or Newt Gingrich in the Republican Primary.  And after hearing from just one too many of Ron Paul’s obnoxious, God hating libertarian followers, I cannot, and I will not remain neutral any longer between Senator Santorum and Congressman Paul.  My decision to pick sides is more a result of listening to some of Ron Paul’s young atheist followers, than it is the result of listening to their favorite candidate.  But at some point you just have to start asking the question, "What kind of a candidate keeps attacting such people?"
So today I declare my full support for Senator Rick Santorum in the Republican Primary.  This is not to say that all of Ron Paul’s supporters are either atheists or obnoxious.  They are not!  But there is a strong contingent of mostly younger voters who support Ron Paul, who are anti-god, anti-Israel, and anti-Semitic, and they make up a large part of the libertarian movement.  They are the most zealous supporters of Ron Paul.  In addition to being anti-God, anti-Israel, and anti-Semitic, they are also pro-Iranian, pro-Palestinian, pro-Muslim Brotherhood, pro-Hezbollah, pro- Hamas and pro-Russian.  That’s just way too much for me.

Anything that blurs the line or softens the distinction between Republicans and Democrats this year, or moves the Republican Party to the center in the General Election, is bad for the Republican Party and it will be bad for the country in November as well.  We need a clear choice.  But that choice also needs to be an intelligent choice, and a rational choice!  That unfortunately eliminates half of Ron Paul’s supporters, maybe even the larger half!

Let’s begin with the premise that there are at least two different kinds of libertarians in America. There are full-fledged uppercase Libertarians, and there are the lowercase libertarians who are just hiding out inside of the Republican Party right now, and trying to change the Republican Party from within.  Half of the libertarians, whatever their “case”, are the God-fearing variety and the other half are the God-hating variety. The God haters are the younger and the more numerous of the two groups, and as such they are the ones that are destined to carry the day inside of the Libertarian Movement.  They are almost as scary as progressives! 


Speaking of progressives, I would just like to say that whatever Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney are promising right now in the middle of their political campaigns to win the Republican Primary, it is just more of the same old calculated political rhetoric that is designed to make the base of the Republican Party believe that these guys actually represent their conservative values.  But it is all just the same meaningless Madison Avenue smoke and mirrors arranged in such a way so as to confuse the average voter, in order to gain a political advantage over their competitors, and thus to win the nomination by subterfuge and fraud.

If most National political campaigns today are really not just a whole lot of bamboozle and hornswoggling then I really don’t know what else to call them, except misleading! The typical national political strategy is to tack to the “Right” in the Republican Primary in order to win over the base of the Party.  Then after successfully securing the Party’s nomination, the candidate turns right around to the “Left” and scurries back to the “Center” (I mean they move to the Center) in order to convince the rest of the country that they are really more moderate.  They try to be all things to all people.  It is all just a political charade, a bunch of “horse pucky”, life with no core values.  There is no substance to any of it!  That is exactly what I think, whenever I think of Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney. They have no substance, and there is not a stone’s throw of difference between either one of them!
