The Effect of the Candidate

When you vote for a candidate, one needs to consider the effect of the canidate on the system at large.

Obama is an Alinsky-style community organizer. Obama rose to power by organizing one part of a community against the other parts. The result of this type of organizing is an extremely shrill political climate.

Marx played the same game. He organized the proletariat against the bourgeoisie. Hundreds of millions of people died under the banner "Workers of the World Unite!"

Obama is a wonderful speaker, but the effect he has is devasting for our nation.

I agree with Ron Paul on most of his positions from ending the Federal Reserve to his differentiation of defense and militarism.

Sadly, I fear that, if he won the presidency, his administration would be undermined by the Republican establishment and that he would not have the positive effect I desire.

Romney is part of a Republican establishment that has a history of stifling the freedom movement in the Republican Party. In Utah, the Republican Establishment took the Health Exchange from ObamaCare, declared them to be free market and imposed them on the people with no debate.

Anyone who tries to stand against the imposition of RomneyCare will be viciously attacked by the Romney clones.

Now, I agree that Newt Gingrich is a deeply flawed candidate. Everyone knows Gingrich is deeply flawed. He is a geek who gets excited by technology and loves fanciful ideas like space travel.

Gingrich's presidency is likely to lead to a period in which people are talking about big ideas.

In summary: Obama unites people against eachother. This Marxian/Alinsky style of politics leads to deep division:

Ron Paul hopes to restore America by obstructionism. He is likely to have a bunker presidency followed by a progressive.

The organization Mitt Romney will lead to eight years of the Republican Establishment actively silencing voices of liberty on the Right.

The deeply flawed Newt Gingrich is likely to lead to a period in which people talked about big ideas. The biggest of all ideas is freedom. I think Newt is more likely to succeed in restoring Health freedom than Ron Paul.

In conclusion, Newt Gingrich is a deeply flawed candidate, but he is probably the best choice for the GOP, which just happens to be a deeply flawed party.
