The GOP keeps bringing a knife to a gun fight. The result is we’re getting killed. We’re getting killed even after we won the most historic landslide in modern history. It’s time to change strategy.
The media tells us to play nice, be "gentlemen" and compromise. Look where it’s gotten us – a bankrupt country with over $18 trillion in debt and income taxes at about the same level as bankrupt socialist Greece. Worse, the labor force participation rate is at all-time lows and for the first time in history more businesses fail each day than open.
We are facing the end of the America Dream and death of the greatest middle class in world history because we have played nice, acted like gentlemen and compromised. We’re standing around acting like “gentlemen” while Barack Obama turns America into Detroit. Like that movie “Network” it’s time to open our window and scream “I’m not going to take it anymore!”
It’s time for a “GOP dream team” of street fighters to take on the evil that is destroying America by making us all dependent on big government. It’s time to kick ass and take no prisoners.
It’s time to get behind one nominee and then name our entire team and announce what that team will do to save the U.S. economy, the middle class and the American Dream.
It’s time to inspire passion and enthusiasm by showing we stand for something. That something is smaller government, lower taxes, less spending, pay down the debt, and giving more power to the citizens. Let the liberal media try to call that “extreme.” The American people will vote for that vision.
Liberals and the media told us we’d lose if we ran an “extremist” like Ronald Reagan. Instead, he won in two historic landslides. Since then, every milk-toast moderate we’ve run, George H. W. Bush, Bob Dole, John McCain and Mitt Romney have lost.
The key to victory is the passion, energy, intensity and enthusiasm of your base, combined with inspiring independents and undecided voters by painting a picture of hope, prosperity and patriotism. You have to get people excited. Being “moderate” doesn’t excite anyone. Although it’s a little early for me to endorse anyone, here is a look at a potential “GOP Dream Team.”
Scott Walker - President
Here’s a man from the Midwest, without a college degree and a blue-collar mentality. Here’s a man who fought the money and manpower of every union in America and won. Not once, not twice, but three times in blue state Wisconsin.
He didn’t do it with kindness. Despite death threats against his wife and children, Scott Walker never gave an inch. He turned a $3 billion deficit into a billion dollar surplus, then handed the money back to the taxpayers.
That’s a fighter. That’s courage. That’s a leader with a spine, who won’t fold when the biased-liberal media tries to slander and destroy him. Walker’s a man bringing a bazooka to a gun fight.
Choices for Vice President
Walker's choices for vice president are plentiful. The GOP bench is fantastic and diverse from Latino men like Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, to women like Carly Fiorina, Gov. Susanna Martinez and Gov. Nikki Haley, to Libertarian heroes like Rand Paul, to a brilliant African American brain surgeon like Dr. Ben Carson, to a genius policy wonk like Gov. Bobby Jindal. The list is long.
We’ve been governed by inept political hacks for far too long. It is time for a dream team of experienced, committed adults who will kick ass and never fold when the going gets tough. The GOP presidential nominee needs to name his entire dream team.
Do that and we’ll put the fear of God into liberals and the media. Here is how we differentiate ourselves, paint a picture of hope, and inspire our base! Here is how we get to the magic number of 270 electoral votes.
Ted Cruz - Attorney General of the United States
Let’s put a true defender of the Constitution in a place where he can do just that. Can you imagine the fear we’ll drive into the heads and hearts of law-breaking liberals and Marxists. No compromise, no mercy.
Rand Paul - Treasury Secretary
Put a Libertarian in charge of the economy, taxes and the IRS. Watch the U.S. economy enjoy the greatest expansion in history with a true, free market Libertarian in charge. Rand Paul is a fighter. No compromise, no mercy.
Allen West - Defense Secretary
Here’s the man born to stand up for the honor of the military and defend the greatest nation in world history. No compromise, no mercy.
Donald Trump - Secretary of State
Rather than weaklings afraid of their shadows, turn the world’s greatest, pit-bull negotiator loose on our adversaries like China and Russia. Let him negotiate the nuclear deal with Iran. No compromise, no mercy.
Dr. Ron Paul - Chairman of the Federal Reserve
The first father-son cabinet team will stand up to, audit, and rein in the Federak Reserve before the it destroys our economy. Ron Paul’s entire life has been preparation for this. No compromise, no mercy.
Trey Gowdy - Secretary of Homeland Security
Protect our borders with common sense. No compromise, no mercy.
Sheriff Joe Arpaio - Immigration and Customs Enforcement
Need I say more?
Dr. Ben Carson - Secretary of Health and Human Services
Here’s the guy born to dismantle Obamacare. No compromise, no mercy.
Darrell Issa - Labor Secretary
A street fighter who will stand up for America’s workers, not union bosses. No compromise, no mercy.
Sarah Palin - Energy Secretary
You want jobs? Take the shackles off and drill baby drill! No compromise, no mercy.
Herman Cain - Commerce Secretary
A brilliant businessman and unabashed capitalist who will get American working again. No compromise, no mercy.
Mitt Romney, Jack Welsh, Steve Wynn, Carly Fiorina - Special Economic Advisors
Put politics aside and put people who understand business in charge of the economy? No compromise, no mercy.
Bobby Jindal - Education Secretary
Here’s the brightest guy in the room, bar none. Put him in charge of taking on the teachers unions with creative ideas to turn around our failing education system. No compromise, no mercy.
Now, a personal plug …
Wayne Allyn Root - Small Business Administration
Small business is the economic engine of America. I know how to motivate, inspire and empower the millions of mom and pop businesses on Main Street, not Wall Street. I stand for giving power to small business, not the welfare state or illegal aliens. No compromise, no mercy.
This is how you win an election - by exciting and inspiring Americans with an experienced, all-star GOP Dream Team that actually stands for something - America, capitalism, the U.S. Constiution, American exceptionalism, Judeo-Christian values and the founding principles of the Founding Fathers.
This is how you tell liberals to go to hell.
