Last night's democratic sweep caused the guys over at Hoosier Access to offer sober advice to the members of their party. Here it is with HFFT comments appearing below:
1. t is not a good thing when the core of our party is not who picks our nominee
2. When we let the “country club” Republicans run the party, we lose
3. Running a campaign on the basis of “I’m not the other guy” is not effective
4. The American people have forgotten what the cost of big government is; they do not remember socialism and communism
4. We cannot rely on “disaffected” Democrats to bring in the vote for Republicans, they must be won
6. Scurrilous charges need to be answered
7. The Democrats ground game has caught up to the Republican ground game
8. Polling was largely correct
9. George W Bush was the gift that kept on giving to the Democrats
10. It will now be a huge challenge to regain control of “voting irregularities” as ACORN, etc. will be largely unchecked for at least two more years
11. We are no longer a racist country, right?
12. If you are going to mess up campaign finance, you might get burned by it
13. Indiana voters vote on personalities and not on ideas
14. Reapportionment and redistricting in 2011 will be critical for the future of governance
15. The reaction to this election is NOT to move to the left
COMMENTS TO HOOSIER ACCESS FROM HFFT:
Republican core values? Gee wouldn't that be to reduce the size and cost of government, to lower taxes, the rule of law, and adherence to the Constitution?
Or are republican core values about starting an illegal war, obeying your global Establishment Masters, forging runaway spending, getting fat at the taxpayer trough, warantless wire taps, serving lobbyists before taxpayers, and arrogant leadership?
Think back to the person who won the MSM internet polls by a landslide after the very first republican debates in 2007? Those were the polls that were yanked from existence almost immediately after they showed his sweeping popular appeal.
That person was Ron Paul.
If the Republican Party wants to find its soul it needs to acknowledge that its Masters (who control the MSM) refused to allow the very sober and articulate Ron Paul to compete on a level playing field. Instead, Dr. Paul was marginalized and labeled a kook.
Guess what, geniuses. That kook Ron Paul called the economic meltdown long before you realized it was lurking as the tsunami poised to devaste our nation's people.
Ron Paul knows what causes our failures and how to restore America. In fact, he tried to warn you all that the problems were coming and you ignored him and/or grouped him with the tin foil hat crowd.
The question is, do the Republicans have the will to force a Revolution within your own party?
Ron Paul can unite conservatives across all lines. And no other conservative but Ron Paul comes even close to having the ground breaking activist support in the streets like Obama employed to catapult his landslide victory last night. And no other conservative can raise the kind of money that Ron Paul can. You might not realize but Ron Paul activist cells still regularly meet across the country and can easily mobilize.
Ron Paul is how we get conservative values back into American policy. And until you move the Republican party into that direction, the third party will continue to pick off your dissatisfied, disillusioned, and betrayed thus leaving the GOP even more marginalized.
