If someone posted a silly and pointless vanity, would you respond? Yes, yes I would. For no other reason than to limit the number of silly and pointless vanities.

No, but just enough people would to ensure Democrats held every office in America.

Depends if she forms the party after fighting the good fight but failing to clean out the RINOs from the GOP.

Or if she forms it before attempting to clean up the GOP.

The Every American Party...TEA Party! LOL! GO SARAH GO!

Seriously, she will end up running for and winning the GOP nomination in 2012 after she helps numerous candidates win in 2010.



MANY MORE STICKER DESIGNS HERE

Because this is a hypothetical question, I’ll answer in same, ‘Yes’

Realistically, No. Three paties never work and here is why.

34% wins, over 33% and 33%, meaning of course that 66% of the poplus did not vote for the winner.

It’s not much better with the 2 party we have, but it is better.

YES YES, and YES. But I think it will be better for Sarah to try to fix this Republican party so that they can be legit again. If she can do that, throw out the RINO crap and bring Conservatism back, then we all win. Sarah can fix the Republican party, if given a chance

After just watching my (former) favortite show, Special Report, I would say YES.

If Krauthammer and Barnes represent Repubs and Sarah leads a conservative party, count me in the latter.

If she forms a new party after fighting a good soli8d fight to clean the RINOs out of the GOP and despite her best efforts the RINO-Romney bots win out, then I would join her new “Bull-Moose party”. The GOP deserves defeat if they continue to cling to the RINO wing. Sometimes you gotta scorch a little earth.

Krauthammer, and Barnes were just asked by Bret Baier of Foxnews if Sarah will run for president in 2012, they all said no.

That certainly remains to be seen, but no matter how wet behind the ears they may think she is, she was and is much more than a community organizer.

No.

I have never submitted part affiliation in my registration.

When the GOP closes ALL the primaries, I might vote in a primary. Until then, caveat emptor.

The RNC stood and did nothing while the DNC/MSM/Hollywood mob brutalized the Palin family for almost an entire year.

They are as dead as she. I despise them as a party, they are weak and cowardly.

If you have 1/3 of the country behind then why not form a strong third party?????? She can do it and it would beat both the Demonrats and the GOP.

"Sarah can fix the Republican party, if given a chance"

Nothing personal, but anyone who believes that any one person can fix the republican party is part of the problem that got us where we find ourselves, not the solution. It is going to take many, many people working incredibly hard to repair the state of politics today (and I say politics generically, as both parties are corrupt beyond much hope).

I don’t think that’s a likelihood, but let me put it this way...

I’ve been a life-long Republican who has never wavered, but after Bush’s insane spending, his play-dead approach to championing his causes, the loathesome amnesty push, the horrid Republican primary, a candidate like McCain who was bound and determined to lose, the RINO-backstabbing of Palin, the continued inability of the GOP to truly voice opposition to Obama’s Marxist agenda...

Well, YES! I would stand alongside Palin in a split-second, and never look back! The whole GOP establishment and beltway punditry makes me want to vomit, after that aforementioned track-record. I’d wholeheartedly go with Sarah Palin and the tea parties before placing any more trust in them. No question.

Notice how those pundits pretend that her resignation was in a vacuum? Never mentioning the savaging of her and her family.

As if she just decided this because she was bored or something.

Your right, it won’t only have to be her, but others as well, but I think if she starts the trend, and others get involved, the party can be fixed

Realistically, No. Three paties never work and here is why.

Except for one big exception. If the third party is replacing one of the major parties, then under the right circumstances it does work.

Case in point: Slavery was splitting the Whigs into about five splinters. Abraham Lincoln came along and led the splinters which were anti-slavery as well as states rights into the Republican Party. Those whig splinters which still wanted slavery or more government disappeared.

Right now we have splinters of the Republican Party who are RINOs, liberal Pubbies, moderate Pubbies, etc., etc. Look at the gatherings over the last month. Underlying almost all of them was a feeling of let's get back to conservatism. That could be the catalyst, with somebody to lead, which could form the new party.

The objective on the national level is to win 270 votes to win the Presidency. Can you demostrate how that could be accomplished within the current framework. Perot got almost 20% of the popular vote in 1992 and zero electoral college votes.

Do you proposed to change the election process and go to a popular vote process?

Gov. Palin is a Republican and working within it.

No third party has won or will win.
Third Parties always give you Democrat Presidents.

I strongly suspect she is going to form a very strong third party. She thinks that the Dems and the establishment GOP are corrupt and in fact the GOP unfixable and corrupt. She is going to do what she did to win the Governorship of Alaska. She will run against the GOP and the DEMS.

No, primarily because she won’t form a new party.

If she’s smart, anyway.

First off, Sarah Palin isn't going to be unemployed; she's going to be a community organizer. She's already said that she intends to go around the country and help conservatives, regardless of party, win office.

That said, the GOP may be as close to collapse now as the Whigs were, and for similar reasons. It could well be revived. It could well be destroyed and a new party take it's place. I think the far easier path would be to revive it and restaff it with actual conservatives. If the entrenched dead-enders want to die defending RINO hill, then the harder path may be the only way.

Only if we can convince Hillary to start a 4th party. Otherwise, there is zero chance of success.
