(Whigs lasted 23 years, not the 21 that I had posted)

My understanding is that the Whig party shutdown because it’s issues were no longer current, the Republican party was formed to advance it’s platform in 1854 and instantly started sweeping elections.

The Republicans held their first convention on July 6, 1854 and four months later held 19% of the Congress and 25% of the Senate, six years later they held the majority in the Congress, the majority in the Senate, and they had the Presidency.

That is a real possibility but if Romney should ascend to the position of sole candidate you can rest assured the GOP will have cut its own throat.

The problem with Sarah going independent is the problem it always will be; the party faithful will vote party line and the conservatives will Sarah, splitting the Republican vote and allowing Obastard to win.

Few “moderates” will vote for Sarah because Oprah told them to hate her.

Palin is not running. She has tasted the pain a campaign creates. Right now, she is making $20,000,000 a year, and will be a kingmaker in 2012.

Palin would be in more demand in her lifetime, and she would make more money in her lifetime if she ran for president.

Palin would be in much less demand and she would make less money than she is making now if she doesn't run.

Palin's so-called "kingmaker" influence, I believe is exaggerated by people who don't want her to run and by people who don't understand why some support Palin.

For example Palin is currently my number one choice. If Palin doesn't run, it would matter little to me who she endorses.

"That is why she is in no hurry to announce and can wait pass the filing deadlines for republican primaries. Organizing4Palin is in 50 states , she has enough people to get on the ballot in all 50 states."

_____________________________________________________

No. You actually have to have a hard working organization to win a Presidential election.

This isn't like running for mayor of a small town or organizing a soccer team.

Mitt Romney already has such a huge advantage that it's probably to late. You have to create relationships with people in the early primary states (Iowa, South Carolina, etc...)

Exactly how can you skip the primaries and become the nominee?

Palin has said numerous times and as recently as last week that she won't run third party.

I do agree that we are in real danger of Tea Party voters splitting the Tea Party vote handing the nomination to Mitt.

Yet Palin is still well situated. I think her 7 previous races have taught her how to handle the political scene as an outsider.

“This is crazy talk and if Palin would even think of this, she is no patriot—she is a traitor and deserves NO respect, yet alone a vote.”

Why would that be? If the republicans decide to let Obama run unopposed (by nominating Mitt), why should she not run?

RUN SARAH, RUN!

"Politics isn't just a game of clashing parties and competing interests. The right reason is to challenge the status quo, to serve the common good, and to leave this nation better than we found it. People know something has gone terribly wrong with our government and it has gotten so far off track. But people also know that there is nothing wrong in America that a good old-fashioned election can't fix. We don't need to fundamentally transform America. We need to restore America." Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin is shaking the Democratic leftist-liberal house to its very foundation.

She, her family, their faith, their values, and their story (particularly of choosing life for their young son and then so obviously being blessed with love for that son and he for them) represent the absolute refutation of all the tired old liberal mantras and victimology and a culture of death that they malignantly use to mentally, psychologically, and financially enslave whole classes of people.

From women's rights, to family values, to gun rights, to abortion, to energy policy, to taxation, to envrionmentalism, to fundamental governing principal, to U.S. soveriegnty and independence, and on and on...Sarah Palin is a wrecking ball to the leftist, liberal, socialist house of cards.

? ...and the leftists, DNC, liberals, MSM, and RINOs all know it, and that's why they rant and rave on and on about her and will do anything to keep her out of this race.

It would irresponsible not to try and win the Republican nomination and reform the GOP from top-down and plot a run as a third-party candidate.

Fortunately, there is no evidence she is planning to do that.

Unlike other Freepers, I have no concrete idea of what Sarah Palin will do. However, I’m confident that she’ll (a) do what’s best for her country and, (b) not what anyone expects based on ‘conventional wisdom’. The nonsense often bandied about these forums that Sarah Palin is, in effect, ‘only in it for the money’ is one of the left’s PDS talking points and unworthy of a conservative forum. The Palin-as-kingmaker concept is also flawed when one looks at her record, which is hardly that of a manipulating power-driven pol. Again, aside from the trolls, too many liberal talking points are used against Sarah Palin by folks who should know better. Sarah Palin is no ordinary politician because, at heart, she really isn’t a politician and she certainly isn’t ordinary. She’ll do something unexpected and I doubt running as an ‘independent’ is it.

there is no middle between Romney and Obama. They could easily be Siamese twins when talking political positions. A contest between the two in November 2012 would have one of them racing for the cliff as fast as he could with the other on the sideline loudly proclaiming that he could get to the cliff faster. Anyone voting for Romney is as big an idiot as those who vote for Obama.

Some of those running could almost bring the advance to a halt but the only one that can turn the ship of state around and drive away from the cliff is Sarah Palin. That fact terrifies the progressives. They know that a win by Palin is the death knell for the progressive agenda world wide. The progressives have known, with certainty, that their world wide Utopia can not be attained as long as the United States and its Constitution exists, for decades.

The progressives now own the entire Democrat party and half of the Republican party. They will stop at nothing in the coming election, November 2012. They will cheat openly because a loss means the end of their agenda and a win means their fraud will never be investigated.

Wake up patriots, do not let the progressives turn us and our children into slaves.

I think people will be surprised at how quickly the slate of candidates will get culled. There isn't enough money for this many. They will make a stab at it for awhile and then run out of money. IMHO, that is why Romney even gets a 20% cut of the polls. Even some of the more popular candidates will get culled out and then we will see if Perry can stay in or Palin wants in.

Something else missing in this scenario is Trump. He may still want to bully his way around. That would leave Obama 40%, Palin 25%, Romney whatever, and Trump around 5%. Obama still wins. The Dem will get 35%-40% if he/she was a yellow dog. The other thinking people will make choices as they see fit. Trump will get votes just because he's a loud mouth. I think Palin would draw more than Romney, but Romney will still get the NE liberal RINO vote. They still want Guliani to run even though he can't get a single vote below the Mason-Dixon line. If Romney could come up with some pics in drag, he could get the rest of the RINO vote. Maybe Weiner will run as a Republican.

I disagree with the notion that there is some hidden secret control mechanism that the GOP establishment can use to control the selection of the nominee. The delegate selection process is what it is. It’s ridiculous to claim that Bachmann and Cain are puppets of Rove. It’s strange that on the one hand some Palin supporters are saying that when she’s in she will dominate and the contest will be over, and other saying she will need to go third party. There ster apparently more subtle forms of PDS out there than the one Chris Matthews has.

Romney is moving left on global warming and staying the course on Romneycare and you will see him take his natural left positions on other issues as the campaign gets underway. His goal is to attract as many democrat voters into the republican open primaries as possible to vote for him.

When the Republicans replaced the Whigs in 1860, because the Whig party was simply too corrupt to survive any longer, a lot of the best former Whigs came over and joined the new Republican Party. I imagine that would happen again. If the Roves and other insiders refuse to let reform into the party, then a lot of the best Republicans would probably come over, sooner or later, to the new party.

You said it better than I could have.

When people start asking and demanding the 'best for the country,' instead of voting and staying in the 'best party' mentality...then and only then are we truly ready to save America from itself.

It is voting the party-line BS that has gotten us into this mess, into this soft tyranny, dominated by progressives and RINO's. Those RINOs got there through party-line voting and they will continue to 'get there,' until we figure out WE are the one's putting into office those who WILL TRADE AWAY OUR FREEDOM. The RINO is worse than voting for the democrat, the RINO is a sneak, liar, and horse-trader of Rights that are not his to barter with the devil with.

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious.
But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly.
But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.
For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.
He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.
A murderer is less to be feared."

Alaska law governing the statute of limitations ethics violations complaints (39.52.310 - H) states this...

"A violation of this chapter may be investigated within two years after discovery of the alleged violation."

IOW...if an "alleged violation" were to be discovered today then the clock limiting a complaint filing would start ticking today and would keep ticking for two years from today.

There are 24,000 pages of official e-mails being disected as we speak. It is not hard to imagine that the opposition will find more than a few that could meet the very low bar for "alleged" ethical violation.

The law further states that once the complant has been "accepted" by the AG, the subject may be required to provide a written response within twenty days. It further states that a failure to so respond may be considered as an admission of the alleged violation.

A steady trickle of one or two complaints (or more) per week during September and October would de-rail a Palin campaign and cost her significant legal fees.

Palin must know this. The opposition surely does.

The opposition media would have a field day.

So do you think Palin cannot win the primary, but it's ok if she deliberately throws the election to Obama by running as a "third party"? If this woman is so popular and so powerful, she needs to get in the primary and win.

I have my own plan to stop Romney and that is for everyone to get behind Rick Perry. I know he's not perfect but by golly, I just don't expect Jesus to show up and run.

Personally, I do not think Palin has a chance either in the primary or as a "third party" but let's find out. Get her in the race.

You neatly removed the second line for post #8
quite consistent with your RomneyBOT status.

Please let me remind you WHY we all would vote
Obama before Romney
(and will write in 'Gov. Palin' first).



Romney for Obama in 2008

Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers…
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide…
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."


The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"I’m told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palin’s people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romney’s former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
… aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.


"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off ….hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."


"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the “Diva” leak was Nicolle Wallace’s husband."


"Peeking Out From the McCain Wreckage: Mitt Romney"

"Someone's got to say it: IS MITT ROMNEY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBAMA'S VICTORY?"

"Vanity: Team Romney Sabotaged Palin and Continuing to Do So?"

"Romney Supporters Trashing Palin"

"Romney advisors sniping at Palin?"



Romney for Obama in 2009


Chihuahua Romney - the Magic RINO:
"I also think it's important for us to nod to our pRes_ _ent when he's right,"
we are pleased with his plans to "finish the job" in Iraq and Afghanistan
I also applaud our pRes_ _ent
for standing up to the evil auto industry. "


Romney for Obama in 2010

"Go Mitt. Go Mitt. Go Mitt"


"Rove is pushing Romney so aggressively
some folks are beginning to wonder what's going on,"
grumbled one veteran Republican strategist."


"Rove has made no secret
of his support for Romney as McCain's VP. "


Romney for Obama in 2011

“Why on Earth is Romney using his donors’ money
to feed ObamaBOTs working against the GOP?”

sat down with small business owners at Gino's East,
a pizza joint famous for their deep-dish pizza.
In fact, Romney himself tweeted a photo of a
delivery boy heading out with the loot, writing,
"Great deep dish at @ginoseast.
Sending the extra slices to @barackobama and his Chicago HQ team."


Chihuahua Romney - the One and the Only "Magic RINO(TM)":

"Obama was born in the United States"

"Obama Doesn’t Need a Birth Certificate"

"The citizenship test has been passed"


Milt Romney in 2007

Romney - the Magic RINO:
"I'm not running as the Republican view
or a continuation of Republican values.
That's not what brings me to the race.

(Romney Video, accessed 9/19/07)



"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party
 over to the traitors in the battle just ended.
We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged
 to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support.
Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates
wouldn't make any sense at all.""

--  President Ronald Reagan



"One of the traditional methods of imposing statism
or socialism on people has been by way of medicine..."

It was an analysis that some FReepers agree with.
It is in detail.

Where is your opposing analysis? [crickets]

Mitt Romney already has such a huge advantage that it's probably to late.

I don't see this. Just yesterday I was talking to a politically active relative in the most Republican county in Iowa and he asked me if I knew of anyone supporting Romney. I told him I don't and he said neither does he, so where is all this Romney support? Romney is even skipping the Iowa Straw Poll which says he doesn't think he can win it.

Get Palin in here--it's her's to lose.
