Dear Newt, While you were not my first choice for the White House, I think you are a fully acceptable candidate. Santorum and Paul are also potentially decent Presidents as well. But Romney is going to win this thing, the only fraud conservative in the running, and that sounds like an utter catastrophe for our nation. So if I might suggest that your slightly alter your goal from getting the nomination outright to simply denying Romney an outright win on the first round of the convention; ie shoot for a brokered convention. For many people this seems obvious and no doubt it has occured to you also and probably Santorum and Paul as well. So in pursuit of a brokered convention, discuss with them the following approach amd see if you can get Santorum to agree. The personality cult surrounding Paul will never go for it so dont waste your time with them. 1. Neither of you will spend any money on attack adds against the other from the moment of the agreement to the end of the convention. Both camps should focus all your fire on the Romney War Machine. 2. Two weeks prior to a primary or caucus, your group and Santorums group conduct a poll by a mutually agreed reliable polling firm. Determine who has the highest rating against Romney at that point. 3. Whoever is behind then would stop spending resources to promote themselves, and instead use those resources to promote the stronger candidate. If Santorum is the stronger then the Gingrich camp would actively work to get Santorum as much support as possible, and vice-versa. 4. The weaker candidate would explain to his supporters that the first thing they all must do to have a real shot at winning the nomination right now is to STOP ROMNEY FIRST and so vote for the stronger not-Romney candidate. 5. Make the phrase 'STOP ROMNEY FIRST' your new catch-phrase to be on everyone's lips. A mantra or prayer for victory, if you will. 6. Both of you should tell you folks in states where only Paul is on the ballot against Romney to support Paul. Delegates for Paul are not delegates for Romney and thus works toward the goal of a brokered convention. 7. Tell people, 'DONT LET THE WHITE HORSE GAIN THE WHITE HOUSE.' Romney and the White Horse Prophecy - Mitt Romney - Salon.com Pardon my arrogance for making such suggestions in a primary run that is full of seasoned pro's, but sometimes it takes a child to point out that the Emporer has no clothes. I think that what I have outlined above is the only way you and Santorum have any chance of getting to the Oval Office. Please, I pray that you and Santorum consider it, discuss it and adopt it. STOP ROMNEY FIRST!
