Wednesday, April 25th, 2012.
Dear New Readers,


My name is Isabel Matos and this is my first entry on this new blog called "the FOLLOW-UP".

It has been my belief all along that the Bush family runs the Republican Party, or the “GOP” as we know it. Their family resume includes two presidents, two governorships and a long history in political life, and seniority, as you well know, gives priority to members within the leadership. It has also been my belief all along that because of their political leanings (not conservative) and their quest for power (JEB 2016), that they have done everything possible to make you and me (the threat to their existence) feel powerless and discouraged, after all, we are just "the people". It is no surprise to me they have supported Romney since 2007.

What I find a bit shocking is how many conservatives who follow politics closely, still DO NOT SEE what the Party is guilty of doing. There IS no appetite for the business-as-usual; however, some are still willing to submit to voting for a nominee the party has chosen for us, and it is only April. Please indulge me in explaining why a strategy like this is not only disappointing, especially after everything we have done to get to where we are today, but a bad precedent for elections to come. If the ELITE in the party know we are giving up so soon, they score! They have been stubborn because we have been effective! And to shift the dynamic of power and influence on our side we must standing firmly in place so they are forced to come to us in the end. Think of it as reachig across the aisle. It doesn't work! NO DEAL! (I know most of you reading this are standing firmly.)

I have said for months that this election has never been about choosing one candidate or another. It has been about the GOP choosing the candidate that best suits their needs, which happens to not coincide with ours. They have done everything in their power to stop Sarah Palin from running because she represents "US", and they despise everything we stand for. We interfere with their plans for growing a progressive agenda. This is our challenge: we do not have the luxury of showing them we are really scared this time. They counting on our FEAR that Obama might win to steer us into voting for their candidate. They have done that before. It is deceptive on their part as they have shown no sense of urgency to defeat Obama thus far. Where have they been in the last four years? Ask Boehner and you will know. At one point, Jeb Bush even urged candidates to tone down the attacks on the Obama administration. Incredible! If we succumb to their manipulation of a genuine fear we have, we lose already! By showing we are disheartened or defeated, they score!

Times like these require extraordinary courage on our part. WE must not relent! We must remind them who the boss is: WE ARE! It takes COURAGE to stand up to a MACHINE as powerful as the GOP's but we must do so because they want us out of their way. It will take WILL-POWER to push back and shout: NOT THIS TIME! IT will take courage to ACT ON these words: “READ MY LIPS, AMERICA, NO NEW RINOS!” It will take courage to push back and tell JEB, his father, the RNC and Fox News, that they can take their liberal progressive message and SHOVE IT! Above all, it will take courage to let them know that WE know what Romney will do if he is sworn in: answer to them, the Old Guard (check his campaign managers in New Hampshire and elsewhere!), and not us. It will take everything we have to fight, but why should we show allegiance to those who claim to represent us yet betray us? Seeing people, who I know are patriots, on the verge of despair because do not want to vote for ROMNEY IS WHAT THE GOP WANTS! They want to stick it to us.

This "victory" of Romney's will soon be over. Just like you and me, Sarah Palin must be watching their every move. She must know their war on us is real. She must know IT IS THEIR INTENTION to keep us as far removed from the process as possible. She must know how powerful the machine is and how wrong for America Progressivism is right now. She has to know. Being the patriot that I have learned more about and who she is, I believe with all my heart that she will not stand by and let them get away it. If anyone is planning on jumping off a bridge by saying this race is over, please save them, because the fun has just begun. It isn’t November 6th, yet! WE have a lot to do. I like pushing back, so please
R.E.S.I.S.T., R.E.S.I.S.T., R.E.S.I.S.T. the will of the GOP.

Warn them: YOU'RE ON NOTICE! YOU WILL NOT GET BETWEEN ME and MY FIRST CHOICE for President! You will not create a "Reform Conservative" Party. We dont "buy" the product you are trying to sell us. WE are courageous, faithful and on a mission. We are TEA-PARTY patriots and RED-WHITE-and-BLUE Americans, and our will to fight you is greater than yours to take on OBAMA (which you have failed miserably to do!) When we are done with you, our Candidate will take HIM on and show you how it's done! We will take this party, give it back to the people where it belongs, and declare it the party of the WHITE GUY, the BLACK GUY, the WOMAN, and yes, the DOG!

For the sake of the country we will not be stopped until we get what we want and deserve!

For the sake of the country, WE will not forget what you have done in the past.

For the sake of the country, we will not move on. We will stand firmly behind our first choice.

We will emerge victorious without you in 2012, and it will NOT be a hollow victory! On the contrary, it will be an EPIC VICTORY for the people as we did not allow ourselves to be distracted, swayed, steered or betrayed by you! Sarah Palin said "Never Again" in 2008 referring to OBama. But I say NEVER AGAIN will you think you can force us vote for someone we do not want. NEVER AGAIN will we be used by and disrespected. NEVER
again will our candidates campaign on TEA party principles and break their promises if we can help it, NEVER AGAIN will we rely on you to do what is right when we need you to. NEVER AGAIN! Instead, we will HOLD YOU ACCOUNTABLE and make sure history is written correctly: that when the election is over YOU were on the WRONG side all along. WE WILL HAVE DEFEATED OBAMA in spite of you. We will prove you never cared about us and that WE are not an unenthused, REpublican Party, only the ELITE is! No. WE the PEOPLE are on FIRE!! And our message came through loud and clear, We RESISTED, YOU FAILED and We PREVAILED! God save us.

Thank you for reading!

  1. Isabel I am so with you I refuse to give RNC anything my help or $$ I am so fed up once again they give us the better of 2 evil candidates. Everyone will hold their nose to vote. Last time we didn't have to hold our nose as we had Sarah. Even if they chose Rubio who personally I have not made my mind up b/c I am so leary of these smooth talking politicians etc The Bush's still want Jeb in there and his oldest son and so forth down the line. They have lost all credibility with me for what it is worth. I will on give $$ to Sarah no more sweet "talkin" guys for me. Great article thanks.

    1. Way to go Suzy! I am so glad to know people like you who get it! Keep fighting on. The worst that can happen if we push back is that we give them a run for their money. They must learn not to disrespect their constituents.

  2. I am so happy to know that there more people who feel that strongly about our GOP and the establishment; I totally agree and would not stop fight for my candidate Newt Gingrich. Media is after him on left and right, Romney is after him, the establishment is after him, every republican shmuck is after Newt, but he still fights back. Every time I hear Newt speaking he is inspires me, he gives me a hope for a better tomorrow, he gives me a hope that our constitution should be respected; he gives me a hope to reform our education, our energy policy, our disastrous foreign policy. I admire his vision for America; I love this man and will stand by him till he gets to the convention. I gave up on FOX already; it is sad for me to know that so many Americans just do not care what is going on in our country, and their blind support to the party is annoying. It should never be about the party it should be about the candidate and can he bring to the table. Name me any other candidate besides Newt Gingrich who challenged Obama on energy policy? Name me any other candidate who questioned Obama’s faith? Name me any other candidate who stands for Israel as much Newt does? Can you name my any other candidate who is questioning judges and their radical views? No wonder they want him out. He wants to bring a change to their existence and they resists it as hard as they can and millions of dollars are spend to make sure that Newt is destroyed. I knew that Newt is my guy when I saw that every politician that I despise is going after man. I really believe that America should be grateful to have a son as Newt Gingrich; he is a rear breed, I never get tired to listen his speeches, he is a historian and his love and understanding the history make him unique. I just do not get whey people do not see the brilliant and perhaps complicated man who can make a change in this country; we need a fighter who is not afraid to stand up for what is right. Wake up America please help him to get to the convention, make this coming election a historic; prove to the establishment that we are not puppets that could be manipulated anyway they master wants, please open your eyes and make your voice heard.

    1. I always respect anyone who supports a candidate based on principle and steady conviction. I see how much you care about your candidate of choice and I admire that very much! YOu are exercising your love and passion for the one who best represents you. Personally, I hope Newt stays in the race so we can continue challenging ROmney and make room for Sarah, but if he doesn't, then you did the best you could by fighting the good fight. We must not allow ourselves to be treated like children! Thanks, but no thanks, GOP! We are adults and we know what we want. Great post. I'm glad you enjoyed reading my commentary. Keep Pushing BACK!
