Since everyone else is launching pressure groups and PACs, I figure it’s high time I did the same.
Just in time for the Minnesota Caucuses, I’m announcing my new PAC, “Eventual Romney Supporters For Santorum Or Paul”.
To be a member of (or contributor to) ERSFSOP, you need to do the following:
- Recognize the true goal for conservatives in the general election – to replace Barack Obama with someone who will shrink government and get it out of the way of economic recovery.
- Recognize, in addition, that most important facet of the endorsement process; pulling like mad for candidates that reflect your values, and do so with a voice so loud and powerful that whomever wins the nomination needs to pay attention, even if it’s not yours.
And so the ERSFSOP charter basically says this:
I, a conservative base voter, recognize the primary need to to get Barack Obama out of office in favor of virtually any conservative-enough Republican, and recognize that Romney is probably still on the inside track to the nomination. I also am uncomfortable with the depth of Romney’s commitment to conservative economic princpiples. And so until Candidate Romney makes his commitment to conservative economic policy – especially repeal of Obamacare and drastic cuts to spending and the size of government – an integral part of his campaign, I will be caucusing for Santorum, or Ron Paul, or even plugging my nose and caucusing for the born-again Alinky-ite, Gingrich. And so until you commit to the policies we support, your path to the nomination has a speed bump.
Your choice, Governor Romney; a 55 gallon drum of Maalox, or a clear path to the convention.
