GOP lawmakers want Palin, King, Bachmann, Beck to shut up
The Examiner ^ | 12/11/2009 | Kevin Hall

Posted on 12/11/2009 9:02:56 AM PST by bigred08

There are very few brave politicians in the world. Most of them mince their words and tell you what they think you want to hear. Brave politicians are ones who speak their mind. They tell you exactly how they feel, consequences be damned. Iowa 5th District Congressman Steve King is among that rare breed.

That's what's WRONG with the GOP.

They are hardly better than deranged Demoncrats.

REAL conservatives need to SPEAK UP NOW, or this country will forever be changed in a most hideous way.

Zimbabwe here we come, if they do not SPEAK UP and OUT!

What happened to Freedom of Speech.

I don’t see how this could be tantamount to Holmes’s ‘shouting fire in a crowded theater’.

Politicians! Cheezzzz!

I’m sure they do, and that’s exactly why Palin, King, Beck and Bachman won’t. And how come they didn’t include Limbaugh in there?

“GOP lawmakers want Palin, King, Bachmann, Beck to shut up”

The next time someone asks me why I damned near throw up when I think of the GOP elite and their disgusting groin leeches on the internet and elsewhere, I will refer them to the above statement

The GOP has to be the first target of the cleansing.

The gov’t in general will be next.

This movement really can’t be stopped as long as the “leaders” continue to fearlessly tell the truth. And that’s all they have to do to be invincible. Never compromise the truth.

People can tell that you speak from real beliefs and are speaking the truth, and by comparison, the other pols appear devious and shady.

Good article - one clarification - Glenn Beck is not a Republican. He is not a Democrat either (pretty obvious)... Like many of us Glenn Beck describes himself as an Independent, a Conservative and a bit of a Libertarian - but most of all a forward looking Traditionalist Loyal American.

How about...uh...N O !!!



MANY MORE STICKER DESIGNS HERE

"We face challenging times with some hell-bent on tearing down our nation by perpetuating pessimism and apologizing for America. They suggest that our best days were yesterdays. But how can this pessimism exist? Proof of our greatness and pride is all around us today. We produce proud and great volunteers who sacrifice everything for their country.

"We can resist enslavement to big central government that crushes hope and opportunity. We must be wary of government largesse. It doesn’t come free and often accepting it takes away everything that is free. Melting into Washington’s powerful and caretaking arms will only lead to suck away the incentive to work hard and chart our own course. This will only contribute to an unstable economy and dizzying national debt, and it will make us less free.

"See, in order to be self-sufficient (we) must be allowed to develop, to drill and build and climb to fulfill our promise! We can not start believing that government is the answer. It can’t make you happy or healthy or wealthy or wise. What can? It is the wisdom of the people and our families and our small businesses and industrious individuals. And it is God’s grace helping those who help themselves." - Sarah Palin, July 26, 2009

"Close the border. They're called illegal aliens for a reason. If they're not going to follow the rules, they should not be in our country. Close the border, and get more aggressive about cracking down on illegal aliens." Sarah Palin, Rusty Humphries show, Dec. 4, 2009

King is excellent you had better read the article.

Are you so diehard of a GOPer that you attack a good man because the GOP does?

I will go read the article myself to make sure it is accurate. If it is, Bye Bye GOP.

I call BS on this article.

There is not one citation of any GOP lawmaker telling anyone to shut up.

The "poll" shows that exactly eleven percent of "congressional insiders" would like to mute Beck, Palin, King, and Bachmann/

Which sounds like they got one RINO in a sample of nine.

Big deal....

I think the article -is of the opinion- that the GOP are silent on issues while Bachmann,Palin,King, and some others speak out.

If the GOP want to McCain again in MODERACY and political correctness they can go play elsewhere and lose.

Steve King is a dynamo, and one of the few brave souls willing to stand up and stick their necks out. Even Rush Limbaugh highlighted Steve on his show recently - that’s how impressive he is.

We need more leaders like him.

(1) The article does not specify that all the so-called "insiders" voted in this poll.

(2) With the likes of Graham, Alexander, and Snowe in the list, who can be surprised that eleven percent don't want to hear from Glenn Beck?

Not attacking you, FRiend, I just think the headline and column in the Examiner are totally out of line with the actual survey.

Agreed. But this is not early primaries in argument. This is discussing what direction the GOP is going. Remember the fatcats of the GOP are wishy washy moderates it doesn’t matter what STEEL says they rule the pocket book.
