Skip to comments.Rebellion Begins February 27th, Goodbye Republican Party

Our Declaration of Independance in its first sentance, includes "it becomes neccessary to dissolve the political bands" will take on a new meaning startng February 27.
There is a movement afoot to celebrate the fourth anniversary of Rick Santelli's tea party rant on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, live on CNBC television, which had the effect of spurring thousands, and then millions to form Tea Parties all across America, by re-registration of Tea Party members from Republican to indeependant.
It is believed that a sudden drop of more than millions of GOP registrations will send a message to the GOP elite, who have continually demeaned and belittled the TP efforts time after time, and which was blamed unfairly for the Republican losses in November.
The Tea Parties were in fact, fully responsible for the GOP successes in 2010, and are to be commended for limiting the Democrats massive voter fraud in the presidential race, and indeed saved many senate and congressional seats that would have been lost by the GOPelite or stolen by the Dems. The GOP itself is to blame for losing many of these seats by not supporting the largely TP/conservative nominees, and by failing to challange fraudulent vote counts in several key states. That, in addition to nomination a presidential canddidate that a small minority of its base wanted.
Oh, sure, they did try to assuage this discontent by selecting a fairly conservative running mate for the ticket, but TP people were not fooled!
Thus, the Rebellion begins in earnest Feb. 17th, 2013. The message will be sent, but the question of whether it will be received and understood, is up to the GOPelite.
(and yes, given this shite world, i'm appreciative of the entertainment value in irony ;-)
As a Democrat, you also get a shot at running the government, instead of complaining from the outside like someone who couldn't pass a sports team tryout.
I do too for the most part. Unfortunately the NY Conservative party is conservative in name only.
The only mistake is registering independent. Everyone who wants to quit the Republican Party (as it deserves) should immediately switch over and re-register as a Democrat, and support conservative candidates in Democrat primaries. It would simply be impossible for the welfare statist MSM to reprogram the sheep in time to counter this strategy - which would acknowledge the existing reality of one-party rule but would greatly strengthen conservative and libertarian voices within the one-party system.
“Mitt Romney is no excuse to be stupid.”
Mitt Romney walked away with 100 million of our campaign contributions.
No reason to win the White House if you get to keep the donations.
Our mistake is in seeing the Democratic Party as an inherently evil entity - it isn't, it's just a tool that we have as much right to use as the evil people who are currently controlling it.
I like this idea...HOWEVER...
Unless there is candidate identified now, a single candidate, not ten to choose from, which will muddy the waters and cause divisions, weakening any chance of winning, then it will all be for naught.
This candidate will need to begin campaigning now, and raise vast amounts of money, as much as a billion dollars after expenses in the bank by January 2015, and the ability to raise a billion more in 2015.
With all that, the political machine (democrat and republican) would still win, unless measures are in place by 2015, to significantly reduce the impact of voter fraud.
No small task ahead, must begin NOW, don’t understand why wait until Feb 21st, wasting very precious time.
Beware the trap where everything is talk, talk, talk, this will mean hitting the streets, much harder than the Tea Party did in 2009 and still maintaining the same credible behavior.
All this stuff is just bluster to avoid the actual hard work. It's easy to claim a revolution is at hand, that you're going to rebel, that you're going to overthrow the "establishment". If only it were that easy. Nothing is going to get done that way.
Conservatives simply need to dominate one of the two existing party's (the GOP is just the better fit) and seize enough influence to push it in the direction we want it to go. It's tough work, it means being the loudest voices, it means showing up for the most meetings, it means putting the most time in organization wise, it means changing the public's mind about spending and debt (yes, you actually have to win the arguments to become more influential), etc. An existing establishment gets comfortable and doesn't wish to give ground to new ideas. If we fully take over, our own establishment would rise up and do the same.
But the real reason something like this won't even get off the ground is because there isn't even agreement on which direction we should go. After a poor election cycle we have a lot of factions pushing and pulling in different directions. Only some folks think the answer is to "just be more conservative". There are strong libertarianish forces taking hold in the conservative movement (and in the country) that wish to drop the social issues. What makes you think that conservatives are even united enough to stand together on much anything, let along pull anything big off. We can't even get our act together in the House of Representatives - and don't think if some Tea Party favorite was speaker it would be much if any better. It isn't enough to just vote for conservative things, you have to actually win the argument with the American people and currently, we aren't.
it is likely that we, along with many of those we elected and retained in both 2010 and 2012 will come with us.
Oh it is not. It isn't even likely that conservatives can band together and challenge Boehner - that's how divided and impotent our movement currently is.
You will probably get flack from the Phony Cons....but remaining in the GOP just means you are voting for different liberals.
Unfortunately too many still get their marching orders from people like Hannity, OReilly, and other Phony Cons.
Great description. Ya mind if I use it now and then?
I left the GOP a few days after the election.
Yeah, right! Just because I registered Republican in 1962, and worked for Goldwater in ‘64, Reagan in five election cycles, and have always voted for republicans (Nixon excepted, but he was a flaming liberal), and was elected to my county Republican Central Committee in 2010 and re-elected in 2012, I guess those facts make me a dipsh** dumbocrat.
Get a life, fool!
As to the dates in my article, Feb. 17th was a typo. I am announcing my resignation to the Central Committee meeting on its regular meeting date of Feb. 21, and the Feb. 27th date is the kick-off of the independence reregistration movement. Hope that clarifies things for the purists who are better proofreaders than I!
I’m already an Independent (fed up former Republican since 1996). If the Tea Party becomes an official party I will gladly sign up or whatever. I sure hope this gets off trhe ground and soon. Republicans are useless has-beens.
