It is difficult to hold onto a consensus of puppets in an election if lies and deception play such a big role as it does in this formation of a ticket for the GOP nomination for President. Therefore there has been a round robin of leaders that have risen and fallen. The right-wing leadership never intended for Cain to get the nomination. Perry was a possible choice, but his absolutely horrible performance in the "debates" left him as a joke, a former Governor of Texas, and to be excused for his ignorance and blind right-wing zombieism. Michele is a flake. The rest of the field failed to grab hold on anything but money, and not enough of that. But over in the wings sits the man who has a growing following, a man who is not truly a Repubican, but a man who is gaining followers by default. Who is he? The right-wing better pay attention. No, it isn't the Newt scum. It is a man who stands taller and taller, and if the GOP doesn't watch out, he may run on a third party ticket and doom the right-wing.
He also comes from Texas. But this man could pass an elementary school test, unlike Perry and Bush.
He was against the war in Afghanistan, and very much against the war in Iraq. And he is being considered for the Republican nomination? Huh? Without all these wars, how would American corporations drain their profits from our naton's treasury? Without wars, it wouldn't pay as much to be greedy. Without wars, why would war-corporations spend money on elections? Without wars there would be a smaller number of influence-peddling organizations. Without wars, why have a Republican Party? Without wars, what sort of nation would we have? Without wars, how could families build their fortunes? Without wars, we might fall victim to having inelligent presidents who wouldn't have to depend on military corporations. Heavens!
I think the leading money behind the Republican Party, and there is plenty of it, will finally wake up and realize that Newt Gingrich would be defeated by Barack Obama. Newt's bio is so loaded with dung and excrement and immorality and lack of ethics and blatant infidelity that he would find it difficult to jump over all of that [if Newt could even jump]. Besides, with more and more media focused on Newt, he will self-destruct soon. The big money in America cannot afford to take that risk, though they can afford everything else.
Ron Paul is the fly in the GOP soup. The war corporations may hate him, but they may feel that they can eventually control him with a right-wing Congress. They currently have brought the President down. They could do the same with Ron Paul ...or Newt, for that matter. Ron Paul has not dismissed a run on a third party ticket. He poses a big, big problem.
It is difficult to predict where the big money will go. One tends to underestimate the low moral and ethical depths the rich right-wing would sink to get what it wants. But Ron Paul would pose a problem. Frankly, I think Paul is unaware of what would be in store for him if he did not toe the greedy line of the right-wing.
The American voting public does not know the hazards of Libertarianism. The war corporations interpret it to mean that they would be free of government regulations and to hell with the vulnerable public. But if the Libertarian candidate, Ron Paul, thinks we should stay out of wars, that poses a problem for the war corporations. But with a controlable Congress, right-wing greed wins.
So, the risks are before the monied greed merchants. Do they want to support Newt who would probably fail against Obama? Do they want to allow a non-war Libertarian to get the nomination and keep the voting public in the dark about the very real dangers of libertariansim? Would they finally give in and support a moderate like Romney? Romney has been controled by big money in the past. Possible.
It is a conundrum for the greedy right-wing. What is needed is a reformed Republican Party that truly represents the conservative wing of the American electorate [just like the Democratic Party needs reform to the progressive wing]. But greed controls. Selfishness prevails. So, the candidate that gets the nomination of the Republican Party will most certainly be a man who:
1) Will be a puppet of the extreme right-wing. 2) Will toe the line in giving the war corporations what they want; 3) Will assure tax breaks for the wealthy. 4) Get rid of government regulations so corporations can do what they want, and to hell with the public's safety. 5) Will have any differences be curbed by an obedient right-wing Congress. 6) Goose-step to big money.
