It is time once again for the elite in Washington, D.C., to begin their perennial power grab by convincing the public that their contenders, especially for the office of president, fill the requirements of the candidates they would like to force on us. They will campaign for a so-called “moderate” who will lose. Again.I have written on this topic in my column, “Elite vs. We the People: Our miracle moment,” but I don’t think we will have ever seen the showdown of the message war that we will see in anticipation of the 2016 presidential election. Arrayed on the battlefield is the vast majority, people who crave a true leader, facing the establishment (in both parties) that is vested in the status quo.
So, let the games begin.
Patriots watched in shock and disbelief as the establishment GOP, in coordination with Karl Rove, dismantled our best hopes for president in 2012, one by one. There were Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, Rick Santorum, among others. This time we have Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, maybe Rick Santorum, and there is time for a new star to rise up – but not for long.
