I am done with the GOP (vanity)
Death of the Republic | Me, Jim Ferreira

Posted on 11/06/2012 8:42:05 PM PST by Freedom_Is_Not_Free

That's it. I'm done with the GOP. No more. I am leaving the party and registering independent of no party affiliation.

Call me when there is a Conservative Party to replace the GOP.

They can go to hell. Don't look for my vote anymore you RINO pukes. If you don't run Conservatives, go to hell. You don't have my vote you assholes.

Chime in if you are done with the GOP and changing party registration. No way I am the only one here done with the GOP-e and their shoving RINOs down our throats.

Sound off, 1, 2, 3, 4.

Is this what people felt like when FDR kept getting re-elected?

No conservative will ever win again in the United Socialist States of America. Only various types of liberals.

This country wouldn’t elect a moderate Republican and you think they would elect a Conservative?

You’ve lost your mind.

My first election was in 2004. I was 18, a freshman in college. I registered as a Republican and voted for George Bush.

I re-registered as an Independent in 2006 because I was disgusted with him. Seeing what happened in 2012, I’m no less pleased with my decision. The GOP is finished.

Correct, but we have only ourselves to blame. Fat, happy and comfortable. We have had no reason to rock the boat nor put our lives on the line to see that the right thing was done over the last several decades.

We let them get their way for far too long, now they’ve locked themselves into the ruling class and our way of life is coming to an end. Nothing can change the decline we’re on and we’re not going to do anything but bitch about it.

Likewise. Tired of this. I will not give another penny to the Repubs. I’m an independent independent. Enough of this. I’m looking out for my family now. Stepping up my prepping, etc. Getting as many guns as I can. Adios GOP. You suck.

Stop whining. Half the country supports a massive welfare state and wants freebies. That is hard to overcome. Romney became a good candidate and NONE of the more conservative alternatives that ran in our primaries this time around would likely have done better. Especially considering we had idiotic candidates like Cain in the mix who had utterly no chance to win a real general election campaign.

I’ll add to that. The conservative base needs to do a better job of nominating “true conservatives” to Senate races. We are shooting ourselves in the foot over and over again by nominating buffoons like Akin, Angle, O’Donnell, etc. These are winnable seats we are throwing away and dumb candidates.

I wasn’t initially a Romney supporter, but I thought he turned out to be a fine candidate.

It is the Chris Christie’s and the John Roberts’ of the world that make me consider giving up on the Republican Party forever. Why work as hard as we have worked only to be stabbed in the back time and time again?

“This country wouldn’t elect a moderate Republican and you think they would elect a Conservative?”

The left won’t elect a Menshevik when they are offered a real Bolshevik. Why get lukewarm leftist when you can get it piping hot?

Brother, I am with you. Someone said it yesterday: Ephesians 6:12:
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

There are forces at work here that are stripping us of our free will and freedom, and you can be sure we are more vulnerable than ever to terrorist, and conventional attack. Time for all of us to pray, prepare, and arm for what is coming.

Yep, the GOP is done. Stick a fork in them.

At least we didn’t lose the House but really, who cares. Obama will do everything by Executive Order and the spineless GOP-e will bluff and bluster and hold their breath until they turn blue, while Obama pats them on the head and kicks them in the ass.

I voted all republican. I support the tea party. I say we need to re-double and keep fighting. I would be ok if a tea party political party began. But I am not sure on solutions. Candidates. I always want and support never win. Not since 2004 in presidential races.

I never said I quit the fight, just done with the GOP.

I have been a very vocal advocate here for holding my nose and voting for lessers of evils. The GOP can’t even do that right. So I am done with them. They can go to hell.

I am done as a Republican and I’ll donate & vote only for SOLID CONSERVATIVES. Nobody else. No more lessers of evils. I am done with lessers of evils.

Conservatives or bust. The GOP-e can go to hell and is no longer my ally in the fight.

I 2nd the motion to never vote for another GOP candidate until they nominate a conservative, although a third party is looking tasty right now.

I wanted Bachmann. Somehow we can’t get people like her over the finish line in this GOP. Santorum was the next best choice. In the end Gingrich would have been better than Romney. Maybe it is time to split the party.

Look, Jose, I appreciate you and what you say. But I am through with the Republican Party.

I am from a socialist country. I understand socialism better than all the leftards in this country. I will NEVER, EVER vote for a democrap. But then again, I am not going to be used by the Republicans ever again either.

Screw the Republican Party. I will be an independent as of tomorrow.

And for Pete’s sake, let us call barack HUSSEIN obama the BENGHAZI MURDERER from now on.

Also voted for Goode, but what Good would that have done. Still he never made the ballot in Kansas. I had a line to put in another name thought. So he was a lost cause. I had no option but to vote Romney to defeat Obama and while he took many states, the ones he needed he lost. Not sure yet what can be done to fix it except nominate Gingrich, Palin or Santorum over Romney and see where that goes.

As of tonight i am finished with my governor Chris Christie...yeah yeah, to sit the election out is a vote for some Democrat to screw up the state worse, but how much worse? The idiots of my state vote Menendez and Lautenberg in and have voted Democrat 6 straight presidential elections...that treasonous bastard Christie doesnt deserve conservative support...the answer is to move when my kids graduate HS, but the options are getting very slim....

NO MORE RINOs. PERIOD. And NO more GOP registration. I am independent now!

I agree.

The Republican party is going to fracture so badly that nobody will be strong enough to take on the Democrat machine. The Democrats own America now.

The Republican party will give us Jeb Bush next election and we will NEVER win with that pos.

I don’t think anything will ever be the same again. We lost more than an election tonight.

My country of birth is socialist. I was born in Bolivia and came here as a kid. I understand socialism myself from hearing what parents have said. Lot of people my parents knew were communist. Obama is similar to Evo Morales, current president, in many ways. Time to stand up to Tyranny.

I believe we hit the tipping point. we can never win again until an total economic collapse.

As much as I do not like this nomination Romney wasn't the problem in this case.

In my opinion we will skate for 15 to 20 years then we will be finished as a nation.

I will keep voting Conservative Republican.

I will NOT vote for RINOs. I’m done with Rove and Boner, Rondald McConnell and the rest of the GOPe RINOs.

I’m not boycotting conservatives, I’m just not supporting the GOPe anymore, meaning either they run conservatives or they lose my vote. I’m done with RINOs and done with the GOPe and I refuse to be their puppet.

I am not going to reward their idiocy and incompetence with my continued GOP voter registration. I am voting with my feet and I am leaving the party.

Conservatives will continue to get my donations and my votes.

I am not mad at the gop nor the candidates, I am very disheartened, surprised, by the number of morons who are on the other side. I really feel Romney/Ryan tried as hard as anyone could. Grab everything you can; shove, curse, steal, be a dumb ass, accept no responsibilities, blame someone else, and you will win in this country.

You can blame it on Romney. Go ahead if it makes you feel better. Fact of the matter is that none of the others would have done as well, none of them would have won. That’s because the population is too far gone. There are now far too many takers to be overtaken by the producers and the defenders.

As a defender, I now have nothing left to defend aside from my family.

I want a Conservative Party to register in. I don’t give a damn at this point if I am “throwing my vote away.”

I just want a Conservative Party to register in and I want the GOPe to see that they’ve lost me and to know that they only way to bring me back into the fold is by nominating conservatives.

I dream of a Conservative Party of millions of disgruntled conservatives big enough that the GOP is salivating over getting their votes — meaning they have to run conservatives to do so.

If we all stay as registered Republicans, we are rewarding them and they will never get the message we DEMAND conservative candidates, the way the left listens to their base DEMANDING hard communists.

The only hope I see for reforming the GOP is to leave it and show them the huge numbers of voters they could draw if they nominate conservatives. And if they don’t, well screw them because I will vote for the Conservative candidate, not their dirty damn RINOs.
