Judge Napolitano: Teddy Roosevelt the original “Nanny Stater”

It’s time to snap out of this Newt Gingrich trance so many seem to be caught up in and come to our conservative senses.  Mr. Gingrich may be the smartest guy in the room, but he’s also a progressive.  He’s a believer in big government and models himself after another big government progressive Teddy Roosevelt.  President Obama, also a big government politician stated in Kansas the other day that rugged individualism has failed in America.  Oh yeah he too embraces Teddy Roosevelt’s nanny state philosophy.  And just to refresh your memory, it was John McCain in 2008 who stated that his favorite President was Teddy Roosevelt. Is the picture becoming clearer?  Are you connecting the dots yet?  If not, you had better watch Judge Napolitano below.

So this is what we’re left with in regards to our two leading candidates; Romney is a RINO and Gingrich is a progressive.  Next to John Huntsman, they’re both the least conservative in the field if your trying to limit the role of government in our lives and restore the constitution.  Or maybe they’re the most conservative in your eyes if your position is to conserve the current big government framework.  If the latter is the case then why not just reelect Obama?  At least then the pain will be more pronounced and the possibility of more liberty loving people waking up will be increased.  Voting for Gingrich or Romney still gets us to where Obama wants to take us, just at a slower pace.  If this post upsets you well it should.  You should be upset that our choices have been limited to either a RINO or a progressive.  I know it ticks me off.

Whatever happened to electing the most conservative candidate in the race?

Liberty forever, freedom for all!

    Republicans are afraid that if they nominate a true conservative Obama will paint him as an extremist, the public will become frightened and vote for Obama, the nonextremist. (How ironic.)

    We anti-progressives rightly heap scorn upon FDR and Woodrow Wilson, but TR was the proto-progressive.

    From what I have seen, Newt has changed for the better since having left office. I agree that to some extent he is believes in big government. Most of what he stated in his interview with Beck was very practical. The GOP Establishment is gunning for him now so I do believe he is an anti-establishment candidate – more of a moderate pragmatist than one who believes in big government. Plus, he’s willing to get tough with Obama. None of this Mr. Nice guy stuff, like McCain did last election. He isn’t my favorite candidate but he isn’t the worst either.

      I’m not so sure he has changed as much as we would like to believe Teresa. I do hope you are right; however he was awful quick to jump in the proposed debate from Newsmax that was going to be hosted by Trump. I believe he used very good judgment in this instance. I also believe that he may have changed his position on a few issues but his core beliefs still support a big government framework.

      In the end if he ends up being our nominee I’ll support him because we simply can’t afford Obama for another 4 years and worse yet another afford him the opportunity to appoint another Supreme Court Justice.

        Here is what Ayn Rand, who lived through Stalin, had to say about electing the lesser of two evils:

        As to your concern: Some here are GOP at all cost. They buy into the idea that only those the GOP approves of are electable. Others are here because they feel that most within the Republican Party no longer represents limited government, lower taxes, and staying within the confines of the Constitution. So you will find both.

        However, as people find out how many of the so called Conservative Politicians are in reality Progressives, they tend to change their minds.

        Ayn Rand
        “There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil. The man who is wrong still retains some respect for truth, if only by accepting the responsibility of choice. But the man in the middle is the knave who blanks out the truth in order to pretend that no choice or values exist, who is willing to sit out the course of any battle, willing to cash in on the blood of the innocent or to crawl on his belly to the guilty, who dispenses justice by condemning both the robber and the robbed to jail, who solves conflicts by ordering the thinker and the fool to meet each other halfway. In any compromise between food and poison, it is only death that can win. In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that can profit. In that transfusion of blood which drains the good to feed the evil, the compromiser is the transmitting rubber tube . . .

        When men reduce their virtues to the approximate, then evil acquires the force of an absolute, when loyalty to an unyielding purpose is dropped by the virtuous, it’s picked up by scoundrels—and you get the indecent spectacle of a cringing, bargaining, traitorous good and a self-righteously uncompromising evil.”

        Remember Bachmann and Rand Paul were not made electable by the Gop, but by the Tea Party.

    The great judge nails another one. Both Romney and Gingrich are big government Republicans, they feel the government should play a major role in our lives, they just differ from Democrats on which role that is. TR is one of my least favorite Republican presidents for the reasons the judge stated and we mustn’t forget that he ran a third party bid as a “progressive.”
    Dare I say it, but anthother Repunlican–Lincoln–also played a large role in the centralizing of government and ending sovereignty of states. He did not always feel bound by the restraints of the constitution although he did realize that it would take a constitutional amendment to finally achieve the abolition of slavery. Today both Democrat and Republicans don’t even recognize the fact that constitutional amendments are needed to change the intent of the constitition.

      “Today both Democrat and Republicans don’t even recognize the fact that constitutional amendments are needed to change the intent of the constitution.”

      And the reason they get away with it Steve is because people just don’t know enough about the constitution and the founders to hold their feet to the fire when they pass things like Obamacare or create regulations that infringe on the private property rights of others. The more knowledge people have, the less these folks can get away with. The constitution and the founders need to become everyone’s homework assignment.
