The GOP Is Committing Suicide


The GOP is committing suicide and setting the stage for a third party run.

The Republicans are in the process of committing suicide, and we very well may witness their funeral this coming November.

The GOP has only one contender that could beat Barack Obama this fall, but it would rather throw the match and allow Obama the second term — which he needs to finish off the Constitution once and for all — than to allow a real patriot a shot at the White House, because they know that if Ron Paul gets elected it could spell big trouble for all those who are corrupted and committing treasonous and or criminal acts. These are very dangerous times.

Few people are willing to vote for “out of touch” Mitt Romney, “the overly religious” Rick “the Pope” Santorum or “the perfected and polished politician” Newt Gingrich. Why? Because all of these GOP candidates have failed to listen to, let alone heed, the wishes of the people and are not seen as being as much different or better from the Democrats. And that means that the masses will stay at home out of apathy or helplessness, glued to the sports channel, and the savvier folks will start preparing themselves for the inevitable end of America.

Paul, on the other hand, would inspire the masses to get out and vote. And he would receive votes from all of the parties, including the GOP folks that can’t stand the so called front-runners, the dissatisfied with Obama Democrats, the libertarians, the independents and a good share of the Tea Party. Namely, all those who prefer freedom to tyranny.

I am beginning to expect Paul will be running as either the libertarian or an independent if he doesn’t secure a brokered deal with the GOP and, given the political climate of the day, this could now be the very ripe time for a third party candidate to win. The GOP had better wake up, or else it will be all over for the party and our country.

Paul would now be the nominee if the media had done its job. Let’s hope that somehow something good happens, or else it is all over but the crying.
