Short summary of 2007 to 2012. And why Romney is fading.Submitted by RC Liberty on Fri, 09/28/2012 - 16:52
In 2008, the Republicans were a tone deaf, big spending(Med Pt D), government expanding(No Child Left Behind, Patriot Act), and war mongering party(Iraq, etc). See 2008 debate clip below.
Over the next five years, Ron Paul and others, educated the republican party, independents, and young people about small government and liberty vs tyranny.
The 2012 Republican candidates reacted to the liberty movement and altered their message towards small government. However, Americans didn't believe them because of their records. Romney and company really don't believe in their new message. That is why Romney can't win. Because he isn't truly for reducing the size of government and expanding our liberty, and the people see right through it.
