Breitbart ^ | 11/15/2012 | John Punder

Posted on 11/15/2012 3:21:54 PM PST by Kolath

Factor 1 for victory in 2016 – drop the doom and gloom – the Democratic vote fell off even more than I projected in the model.

Factor 2 for victory in 2016 – The opportunity for the Latino Republican vote

Factor 3 for victory in 2016 – the chance for a real Republican ground game in 2016

Factor 4 for victory in 2016 – Photo ID/Republicans must stand for the integrity of each person casting one vote.

Factor 5 for victory in 2016 – not have another Act of Nature like Sandy the week before the election

What we need is another Bull Moose party. Start over from scratch. It will be the same old crap in ‘16, the globalist Bush cabal shoving another RINO down our throats.

No you clown. Just have an army of GOP election volunteers/observers at precints who won’t go limp-wrist when black panthers or dummycrap bastards start yelling at them to go away. It’s what happened in PA and OH.

Nothing good will come of any future elections until this corrupt-to-the-core voter/election fraud is quashed.

The Demonic-rats learned they could get away with open, obvious, in-your-face fraud virtually unopposed this time. How do we counter THAT? This is the only question that has to be effectively addressed.

The Obama Babies of 2008 will be up for re-election that year, so it's doable.

Bull Moose was a left-wing party.

The GOP has become Democrat light. I don’t care if they win. I want conservatives to win.

The GOP is equally responsible for the deplorable state of our country - the debt, the police state, the outrageous, wasteful pork spending, and the loss of liberty.

This is paramount.

If a nation can't -- or won't -- defend the integrity of the ballot box, then that nation is NOT WORTH FIGHTING FOR!

Such a nation deserves death.

Voting machines were first introduced because fraud was epidemic in the paper ballot days. Ever hear the expression "stuffing the ballot box"?

It was a very out-of-nowhere populist party that stuck it's middle finger in the eye of the ruling elite, and won.

The GOPe doesn't want we Christian conservatives, they made that clear this year.

My point is we should do our own thing and force them to come to us.

Said party would need to be led by a Joe-The-Plumber type rather than the standard Skull and Bones crowd from both parties.

I highly doubt any of us will ever see another Republican President in our lifetimes. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that we will not see another Republican President if the amnesty thing goes through.

There is quite a divide between the blacks and Hispanics, it needs to be exploited.

1. Start with a viable message and a reason for people to vote for you and run candidates with sales experience and with life experience other than running for office. Your history and our experience with you has taught us that "Republicans suck" is now common knowledge and since NO ONE has challenged that belief, it's now a FACT in the public arena. Why would anyone join your group??

2. Clean up the voting process and deal with the obvious fraud and abuse. Our vote has been stolen, along with our government, and once in office, they steal us blind. Each of us and every generation after.

3. Tighten the primary process to exclude non-party voting in the primaries. It's your party, YOU decide, not outsiders, who will represent you and your brand!!!

Voters are either scared or ignorant. We need teachers who can show us what the facts are, with enough personality to give us reason to listen and enough experience for us to trust and believe what you say.

Such people don't exist in the republican party. Time to admit bankruptcy, cut away the crap, reorganize with the best stuff under a new name and start fresh with new faces and those rediscovered original American ideals.

Sure, but by now, we’ve found out that the machines are easier to cheat with than the paper ballots. It at least takes time and willing people to fill out paper ballots, so there is a limit to how much cheating you can get done. Not to mention, there is a paper trail so that the cheating might be caught after the fact and nullified.

With the machines, all it takes is one guy pushing a few buttons to rig the vote for each polling place, or, in the worst case scenario, one programmer modifying a few lines of code to rig the vote for an entire county. Once it’s done, there is usually no trace left for investigators to catch.

I wouldn’t call it out-of-nowhere, nor particularly a positive development. It was a leftist split from the GOP and reaction against Conservative President Taft, led by a megalomaniacal nut TR. Its main accomplishment was causing enough of a divided vote to allow Wilson’s election, another leftist nightmare.

Yep. Did you notice how the George Zimmerman story just faded away? Must not have polled well for the dims among Hispanics and they dropped it.

Amusing. The author presumes that there will be another fair and free election.

6. Don’t allow a Massachusetts liberal to hijack the party for self-aggrandizement and in the name of Romneycare.
