GOP bigwigs don’t really want to win; they just want the status quo maintained
by Bob Livingston
The U.S. political system is a farce and fraud. Until the American people wake up to the fact that the right/left, Republican/Democrat paradigm is a false one, the farce will continue and our liberties will continue to be eroded.
Politics in America is not a party system. It is instead a repetitive and insulting process of pacifying the national will with the illusion of freedom and political choices.
The elites in the District of Criminals and the money power behind them are so far removed from the people over whom they lord and/or whom they employ, that they may as well be on a distant planet in another solar system. All the thoughts they think and all the things they do are designed to draw more power and more wealth into their control.
Every two years, whether it’s in the off-year congressional election or the quadrennial presidential “election,” the false paradigm is reinforced. The opposing candidates square off, promising change of this or that nature, and the people, hearing catch phrases and buzzwords that tickle their ears, fall in line and cast their votes. But regardless of whether this Republicrat or that Democan gets elected, nothing of consequence ever changes.
Banks and crony firms get the bailouts and the contracts, the wars continue, the money printing never ceases, government grows, the illegals keep coming, wealth is still transferred, the regulatory structure gets more burdensome, protection and advantages for the elites get stronger, and the people are further impoverished and enslaved. The only difference we see is which of the elites get best seats at the table nearest the king and which are relegated to the back seats.
The political class and their handlers look upon the people as cattle to be herded along, controlled, used and thrown away as needed. To the political class, the people are simply ignorant rubes of lower stratum who are incapable of making rational decisions if left to their own devices.
The Republican establishment has for months tried to force-feed Jeb Bush on the Republican voters. Bush is an establishment man from the ultimate Republican establishment family. The banksters, the lobbyist crowd and the progressive Republican elites felt safe with him because Bush represented their values and would toe the line for them. But that went down with the people like a teaspoon of castor oil.
Despite months of pronouncements by the corporate propaganda media that Bush was the inevitable Republican nominee and despite sitting on a war chest larger than the gross domestic product of some countries, Bush has fallen into a state irrelevance. His prospects are now so dire that even the elites have accepted that no amount of propaganda and no amount of money is likely to revive his candidacy. And it seems the moneyed elites are not comfortable with the prospects of their other choices.
This has them in panic mode. There is now, once again, a movement to draft Mitt Romney.
On Friday, The Washington Post reported: “According to other Republicans, some in the party establishment are so desperate to change the dynamic that they are talking anew about drafting Romney — despite his insistence that he will not run again. Frniends have mapped out a strategy for a late entry to pick up delegates and vie for the nomination in a convention fight, according to the Republicans who were briefed on the talks, though Romney has shown no indication of reviving his interest.”
Were politics an honest and straightforward endeavor, this development would be a head scratcher. Romney failed miserably in the last election cycle to excite — or even attract — many in the Republican rank and file. Nothing has changed among the conservative electorate to indicate that a Romney candidacy would be better received this time than last. If anything, the mood out in the hinterlands would be even more decisively against a Romney run than four years ago.
A few months ago, I told you about an email we received at Personal Liberty that was very revealing and offers some explanation of why the establishment would consider such a thing. It came from someone from the District of Criminals consultant class trying to reach the adulterous former congressman from Louisiana, Bob Livingston. The writer was apparently acquainted with that Livingston, though not well enough to realize that he and I are two very different people.
To Personal Liberty Customer Service
I don’t have Bob Livingston or Paul Cambone’s (sic, Cambon is Livingston’s partner in a lobbying firm called The Livingston Group) personal email, so I would appreciate if you would forward this note to them. They know me…
I think there is another area thinking Republicans need to probe. There are a surprising number of my Republican friends… and I am one of them… that if we put up one of the wingnuts or someone inexperienced, we will easily vote for Hillary. Several years ago, I would have never thought those words would come out of my mouth. She as Secretary of State earned many people’s respect. Despite the Benghazi issue… frankly watching that day, she ate the Republican panels alive, and we gave her tons of great air time to look professional while we looked partisan.
How would a question on the newsletter survey have read, if your Republican candidate isn’t the party’s choice or someone you don’t support, would you vote for Hillary Clinton?
I think we as Republicans might be surprised at the depth of her support or at least the concern for some of the extremists around the party. Bob knows I’ve live (sic) the R life professionally and personally for many years. I think there are many of us that think this party is losing its mind. We did better in taking it back in the last Congressional election, but we have a ways to go to sanity and governance.
Just a thought…

The GOP establishment and the moneyed elite are terrified of the prospect of a Donald Trump, Ben Carson or Ted Cruz victory in the Republican primary; and they see all three men dominating polling in early states and, therefore, on a serious path to receiving enough delegates for one of them to become nominated. And they recognize that, based upon the anti-immigration mood of Joe and Jane Republicanvoter, that Marco Rubio’s support of amnesty may likewise doom his chances, especially in light of the Paris attacks. Trump, Carson and Cruz would all upset the establishment apple cart.
So rather than face that prospect, the GOP establishment would rather run Romney as the nominee and lose against the other establishment candidate, Hillary Clinton, than face the prospect of a Trump, Carson or Cruz winning. The GOP establishment is once again giving a big middle-finger to party voters, as the GOP congressweasels have done since being given a majority in two consecutive elections, in order to protect the status quo as mentioned above.
The quicker we come to terms with reality about politics in America, the closer we come to serious action to restore freedom of the individual. The government and its politicians are at war with us in order to protect their interests, which are 180 degrees out of phase with ours.
