Real conservatives are cringing at the fact the establishment of the Republican Party have endorsed Mitt Romney as their guy. Looking at his record as Governor of Massachusetts, Mitt wasn’t really that conservative. He passed RomneyCare which ObamaCare was tailored after. He raised (taxes) fees equaling $730 million dollars his first year in office while running his election campaign stating he would not raise taxes if elected.
As candidate for governor he stated he was Pro choice as women should be able to “preserve and protect” their right to choose. He also stated “I will not create jobs that kill people” referring to PG&E company under attack for not cleaning up and creating a safe environment for the workers and citizens of the state.
Mitt did some good as the Governor by cutting the budget and spending to help reduce the billions of dollars in deficits he inherited from the prior administration. This was done with a majority of Democratic leaders in the State Legislature, a feat that would seem impossible today.
With that said, real conservatives are for Ron Paul, not Mitt Romney. So as the Republican Party Convention edges closer and closer to Tampa Ron Paul announced a new strategy a few days ago as he moves forward with his bid for the White House. With funding difficult to capture the Paul campaign will quit spending on media advertising throughout the rest of the campaign. Instead they will attempt to secure enough delegates in each state to head to Tampa and vote for him if Romney does not receive the required votes for nomination on the first go around.
Just a few weeks ago, the Central Committee arm of the Republican Party informed the leaders of the Nevada GOP they will not be allowed at the convention in Florida if Paul supporters are the majority of delegates sent to Tampa.
The Republican base nationally are outraged and want Mitt as their man and went as far as to send a letter to state officials of the Republican Party to stop the infiltration of Paul delegates or not be invited to the convention. O f course the letter is non binding as what the Paul campaign is doing is well within their rights.
By stacking the delegates in Tampa the Paul campaign wants an advantage no advertising expense can give you. If Romney doesn’t win the nomination on the first count those delegates committed to Paul can then vote for him during the second count.
