The National Review is wringing their hands over Romney's defeat, and offers up a plethora of articles explaining why this happened. Yet none of
these articles dare mention the GOP leadership's railroading of Ron Paul out of the nomination, despite his wide grassroots support, and the shoving
of a manufactured candidate down our throats who had so little grassroots support they had to fake the photos of his rallies to enlarge the crowds.
This is a repeat of 2008, in which Ron Paul, again with a clear advantage on grass roots support, was edged out of the race so that John McCain and
Caribou Barbie could walk to the nomination. Twice in a row is no accident, and for many Republican voters, it was a slap in the face. As a result,
many Republican voters simply stayed home yesterday out of sheer disgust.
I would hope that the GOP leadership would learn a lesson from this debacle, both about the perils of ignoring ones own voters, and the poor chances
of success of photoshopped rally pictures in the age of the internet. But from this array of articles it appears that the GOP leadership is unwilling
and unable to objectively analyze how they alienated their own support base. Which means the GOP is doomed and the US will soon be a one-party system
just like the former USSR and Nazi Germany.
You did it to yourselves, GOP, and we have no sympathy for you at all.
