Some time ago I said that Republican Presidential candidate, Mitt Romney was looking pretty good to win the GOP candidate spot in the upcoming United States Presidential Election 2012, then the Iowa Caucus took place and Rick Santorum came out on top by 13 or 18 votes to win the Iowa Caucus. Mitt Romney took second but was not worried because he took the New Hampshire Primary by a landslide, so Romney looked like the sure candidate right not quite, the South Carolina Primary took place and guess who joined the top spot for the Republicans, former U.S. House Speaker, Newt Gingrich he took South Carolina by storm with Mitt Romney in second place. I know and understand that this is still way to early in the 2012 Presidential Campaign to worry but to the Republican Party, I would start worrying a lot this is just a prime example of how divided the Republican Party is as well as our country. The Grand Old Party (GOP) lacks stability as well as leadership for who will be the prime candidate to take on Barack Obama in the 2012 General Presidential Election. Some say that Newt Gingrich has the power and ability to defeat Obama but others think that Romney has a better chance and just for the record some people think Rick Santorum still has an outside chance to win the Republican Party nomination for President. Not to be completely negative but this is now officially a disaster waiting to happen. The Republican Party needs to get their act together put all their differences aside and together as a whole select unanimously a strong and powerful Presidential candidate and Vice Presidential candidate that can defeat Barack Obama in November 2012. The 2012 Presidential Campaign now focuses on the Florida Primary and Mitt Romney must come out on top and win Florida if he is to be the top GOP Presidential candidate because if Newt Gingrich wins the Florida Primary that gives him some power and resurgence to put him as the top Republican contender which is not a bad choice because he does have a lot of political leadership and experience in government that can help lead our country out of this economic crisis and deficit as well as maybe bring back all our United States military soldiers and troops that are still fighting in wars in other countries risking their precious lives for us to be free. I cannot say this enough, the Republican Party (aka: GOP) needs to get their act together in selecting a Presidential candidate that will beat Barack Obama but soundly or else as I mentioned previously this is just a blue print for disaster and the Democratic Party will take full advantage of it. The GOP can only hope that they can have their Presidential candidate and Vice Presidential candidate before the 2012 Republican National Convention so the United States voters can see that this is a strong and unified political party with a strong Presidential and Vice Presidential candidate that the United States can be proud to elect to the White House.
I was reading several news publications and many of them have already started making predictions about who should and will represent the Republican party as candidate for President of the United States. As I presently see, Mitt Romney appears to be the leading front runner with maybe Newt Gingrich in a bit of a close second but again that is my opinion. What really worries me is that the United States voter is truly and really unpredictable which might explain how someone like Barack Obama was elected as our current President and Commander in Chief and we as a nation are strongly regretting it. My overall message to all the United States voters but especially to my friends and colleagues of the Republican Party please do your research and homework regarding each and every United States Presidential candidate no matter what political party or affiliation they represent so you make the wisest, smartest, and best choice. In addition, we need to be unified and/or united as a political party because the so-called Democratic Party (aka: Liberals and Socialists) thrive and take full advantage when the Republican Party (aka: GOP) is divided and has so-called new little parties (aka: The Tea Party) which tells America we are not in unison and we are overall divided which will tell the United States voter we better vote for another choice for President. I am going to borrow this saying and cliché because it does relate to us as a political party at this moment; “United We Stand, Divided We Fall.” If in 2012 we are going to elect a Republican as President of the United States in the White House, then we need to right now start being together and united to show America that we are a United political party and we are ready to help bring the United States back to its strong foundation, leadership, and back to a positive economic workflow and cashflow.
As I would listen to some news commentators on television give their thoughts and opinions about the failing United States economy and the growing deficit that has caused this economic crisis, I took a moment and thought to myself could we be headed to another “Great Depression” like in the 1940’s where unemployment was high and the only thing that helped saved the U.S. Economy was World War II believe it or not. After the war ended, U.S. President, Harry Truman and the United States Congress ordered that the factories begin re-build and re-manufacture tanks, ammunition, guns, bullets, along with any other necessities needed to prepare for war again. The American economy was flowing smoothly for a few years maybe even a few decades but now we are back in the same financial situation and/or rut again with a large deficit, high unemployment, and this time add on large companies going bankrupt and causing layoffs along with company executives embezzling and stealing millions of dollars from the businesses they work for. Yes, it is safe to say that the United States economy can be compared to “Rome burning” and it is burning strong and slow but strong and if we as Americans do not help the problem now we might not have a great nation to be proud of anymore because we will probably be bankrupt. I know I will probably sound like a broken record with all these cliches but everyone of us needs to do our part to help the American economy including save as much money as one can, save energy in both your home and your automobile by not driving so much and save gas, paying all your bills, and obligations first before wasting and spending money carelessly on things you do not need. It appears that all the soldiers from Afghanistan will be returning home from service, first I would like to say thank you and God Bless all of you for serving our country, second, I am also very happy that this battle and/or war in Afghanistan is finally over because we will not spending and wasting any more money over there and it can be used here to help us with our financial battle that is unfortunately just beginning.
