"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

Problem Solved!

The next time you hear poll results touted for the Republican Primary candidates remember that even in Iowa almost 70% of the voters have not made up their mind or like a lot of Republicans refuse to answer polling calls. Maybe this election will finally start to put a nail in the coffin of so many liberal polling companies or those closely tied to establishment consultants. About time the media took a real hit with their reporting as well. Fox News has to be the most biased in the election but when you hire people like Dick Morris who touts Fox News is going to choose the Republican candidate nothing should shock anyone.

Until today I didn't realize that former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson was not in the debates because he didn't poll 2% but the pollsters left him off their ballots so how is he going to poll 2%? Will be so happy when this rigged Republican primary is over. From all the debates, to media blackouts of some debate candidates, to media blackouts unless a candidate makes a gaffe, to freezing out a former Governor, to biased polling and news, to flavor of the week candidates and then to top it all off a Republican National Committee Chairman who is obviously on the side of Romney who has trouble when he has to meet people so the reason for all the debates.  I thought 2008 was pretty disgusting but this year beats it by a mile.

Hope the establishment and their consultants are pleased with themselves because if their candidate Romney wins, they will have the dubious honor of splitting off a large group of the Republican Party who will vote 3rd Party or not vote in the Presidential election. These are also the people who work the campaigns on the ground.  In the end they will have no one to blame but themselves as they have been warned for months that the grassroots did not want any candidates from 2008 to run.

This started for me with the establishment overplaying their hand in 2004 to try and keep Dr. Coburn out of the Senate and in 2006 and 2010 to try and defeat Rick Perry as Governor using moderate candidates. That should tell you all you need to know about the establishment -- favor moderates over conservatives. I have seen it up and close and personal and frankly I am still appalled at the nerve of the establishment and the puppets they use.

Not a fan of Libertarians but if Mitt Romney becomes the nominee, will take a real serious look at Governor Johnson who by all accounts is conservative but is leaving the Republican Party because of the way he has been treated. Guess RNC Chairman Preibus and the establishment didn't want another Governor to show up Romney who is liberal as Johnson comes from a state like Texas with a huge border problem.

It it is the holidays and candidates are campaigning because RNC let Iowa move up their caucus to the 3rd of January while pushing Oklahoma and other states to March.  When it comes to the RNC, I am Scrooge -- not one thin dime leaves my account for them until the current group is shown the door.
