This videtorial is based on a January 3, 2012 editorial by Joseph Farah, founder and publisher of WND.com.

While many are disappointed with the Republican presidential nominating process, Farah sees a great opportunity.

None of the top-polling contenders are "perfect candidates." As of right now, there is little certainty the Republican nominee will defeat Barack Obama. But the good news is that there is only one major Republican candidate for whom I could not pull the lever if he wins the nomination. That's Mitt Romney. So there's an excellent chance Republicans will nominate a candidate offering a clear and compelling alternative to Obama.

All the polls suggest Republicans will add to their majority in the House and win more seats in the Senate. This can't be a bad thing, even though Republican congressmen disappointed us badly last time.

We have a solid year to set the stage for the most dramatic turnaround in the history of the Republic with just one congressional vote. If there were ever a need for a re-energized tea party, it's now!

It's time to do something about the insane level of borrowing that's sustaining out-of-control government.

Ron Paul and Michele Bachmann are already on record as to what they would do -- just say no. Now it's time to hear from Romney, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Rick Perry. Would you believe they never had to answer this question in any public debate?

All we need is for one house of Congress to vote no to raising the debt.

I call my plan "No More Red Ink." It makes the debt limit the political litmus test separating the men from the boys. We can't afford any more 10-year plans to balance the budget.

Few in Washington have the guts to call an overnight cut of $1 trillion. Only 22 House Republicans voted against a hike in the debt limit last summer. We've got a year to multiply that number by 10.

Are you with me on this? Every poll shows Americans, including a majority of Democrats, support the cold-turkey approach.

Last year we sent House Republicans 1 million letters urging them to just say no to any debt increase. Maybe it takes 2 million for them to get the message.

We've got to convince them to cut up the credit card — or all their talk about the Constitution and fiscal responsibility is just rhetoric.
