Glenn Beck the flip flop?

Where to start?

I suppose it’s been about a month since my last post. I’ve been busy with work, and frustrated with the way the elections have been turning out. It seems the mainstream media has done a great job sidelining Ron Paul. I did however get a pinch of excitement yesterday to see that Rick Santorum has left the race; which means there is only one cannon fodder candidate left to stand against Mitt Romney. I suspect Newt will drop out soon, and then it will be a straight battle between Ron and Mitt. I was however disappointed to see how quickly Glenn has thrown in his support behind Mitt. And this is precisely why I do not follow nor trust Glenn Beck anymore. I used to love Glenn. I have many of his books, and I agree on many of the things that he says. What bothers me is how easily he ignores and sidelines Ron Paul, even though he is the only candidate who is standing up for all the American principles that Glenn so enthusiastically preaches about. And now he has thrown in the towel to get behind a progressive like Mitt Romney, who provided the blueprint for Obama-care. So whose side is Glenn really on?

I’m still vouching for Ron Paul. I’m still vouching for the constitution, and a man of his word who will defend and restore it. I will not vote for Mitt Romney or Barack Obama.

Glenn might be on the right track with much of what he says, but I will not get behind another progressive candidate just because he is a republican. As far as I see it, the democrats as Glenn points out do represent socialism, bordering communism these days, but as far as I see it, the republicans are corporatists bordering fascism these days also, and neither side is good for this country. I want to live in a free world that respects individuals and the rule of law. I want to live in a country that respects individual rights and liberties, and gives everyone a chance to create the future for themselves, without robbing from others to do so.

I find it funny that George Soros himself says that there is not much difference between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama. Glenn has spent much of the last few years bashing Soros on a daily bases for being a progressive, and yet now he is supporting the same candidate that Soros supports.

I will not support Mitt Romney. I find it a shame that Glenn will.

And for those who think that the republican presidential race is over. I will leave you with this:

Warren Harding went into the brokered 1920 convention with only 6% of the delegates, but emerged as the party’s nominee. Harding won the general election in a landslide and took a very non-interventionist approach to the Depression of 1921.

Ron Paul will be the republican candidate at the end of the convention. Or else Barack Obama will win the next general election.

I suggest you stand with liberty and a candidate of integrity. Where did Glenn’s integrity go? Does he really stand for American values? I can’t tell, but I suggest you lead your own values, and not just listen to what someone else says.

  1. Glenn has his reasons which I happen to side with. If you know Glenn, these are the core things that that bug him. He talks about it often.
    When Paul stated just last fall that we just need to be friends with Iran…that’s exactly what he said, once I picked my eyeballs off the floor and my ears quit bleeding, I knew EXACTLY what Glenn would say.
    Islam is coming and you and I who are just infadels will reep that evil. The picture is bigger than America even though I wish we could just pretend if we don’t bother them, they won’t hate us. Hate, like you’ll never know.
    Foreign Policy is going to be everything soon..and Mittens is the lesser of two evils.
    But he has the youth vote and that could prove to be a powerhouse in November. Young adults is not Glenns demographics and for me anyway…I don’t care who Glenn votes for. It’s not why I listen.

    1. I agree with Ron that we need to be friends with Iran. They pose no threat to us. They have used nuclear power for decades now, and everything is to the book. I’m sure you remember all the rhetoric leading up to the war in Iraq. There were no WMD’s. It was all propaganda. There will always be evil in the world. Even if the middle east forms a caliphate, I am not worried about it. During the time of the Ottoman empire, there was peace in the region, and we traded with them. There will always be wars and skirmishes. But I do not fear a great evil. I know that this country can repel any attack against it. We should not engage in preemptive wars. All that does is create blow-back, and hardens the enemies resolve. As far as the lesser of two evils. Evil is still evil. Mitt Romney is almost a carbon copy of Barack Obama, and I do not foresee the changes many hope will come if ‘anybody but Obama’ is elected. As far as the young vote. Romney does not have it. Ron Paul does. If you want to beat Obama, it has to be Ron Paul.
