Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell recently attempted to excuse the GOP’s latest betrayal of voters by insisting that we need candidates “who can win.” According to history, this means we need to urgently and immediately get rid of unprincipled leftist RINOs like himself and vote for liberty-minded conservatives.
Let’s review the record:
-Reagan was a bold, unapologetic conservative on almost every issue. This right-of-center country enthusiastically united behind him and Jimmy Carter was overwhelmingly defeated in 1980…and Mondale was utterly annihilated in 1984.
-Bush Sr. ran as a solid conservative and destroyed Dukakis. Then he became liberal, violated his “no new taxes” pledge, and the country turned against him, electing Southern “moderate” Bill Clinton instead.
-Dole compromised with Democrats and voted like a leftist on numerous issues…and was crushed by Bill Clinton in 1996.
-George W Bush ran as a “compassionate conservative” and barely beat one of the worst candidates the left has ever nominated for the presidency—Al Gore. He proved to be conservative on some core issues, and liberal others…and defeated John Kerry by a narrow margin.
-John McCain was a total leftist sellout on nearly every issue and lost to Obama.
-Mitt Romney was a slightly less left-wing RINO than McCain, and lost to Obama as well.
Starting to see a pattern yet?
Mitt Romney supporters indignantly deny that his government takeover of health care in Massachusetts was the original basis of Obamacare. But now, Romney himself is even on the record praising Obama’s illegal, trillion-dollar health care takeover and taking credit for pioneering the annihilation of free market health care before Obama.
Starting to see why words and voting can no longer save the republic? Both parties are now two wings of a Constitution-shredding socialist government at war with the American people on virtually every issue.
