The Republicans Are Officially DEAD To Me I Am Registering Independent Tomorrow
OV

Posted on 01/01/2013 10:01:47 PM PST by OneVike

Ever since the election I have been sitting back to watch what happens during the lame duck session of Congress. I have already accepted the sad fact that the Republicans where not going to do anything about all the illegal activity that took place on election day. I even begrudgingly accept the fact that they will never bring up charges of impeachment against Obama. However, for them to be so afraid of him as too give into this farce of a deal is too much for me to accept.

We all agree that America is no longer the country we grew up to love, fight for, and respect. Heck, every January 1st there are hundreds of thousands of new laws on the books that take a little more of our rights away. Sadly, while telling us to keep the faith because they will stand in the breach to keep us free, the Republican party continually does the opposite by making deals with the Democrats. The Republicans have their DNA all over the very laws they tell us they will stand against, and this fiscal cliff deal is just one more example of their many broken promises.

In my 15 years here, I have done my share of debating many fellow FReepers who thought we should abandon the Republican party. My argument has always been on the side that a third party vote, or even a non vote would only help the Democrats. Well this latest broken promise is the last straw for me. No more. From here on out I will argue for and support a third party.

It is time, hell it's way past time for a revolution that will lead to the replacement of the Republican party.

First thing tomorrow I will officially leave the Republican party.

Yep, that will accomplish a whole lot. Split the Republican Party up and be in the minority for the next 30 years. Great idea. I’d prefer CWII myself one day. It will undoubtedly come to that. The demographics have changed to the tipping point.

So where is this magical 3rd party. Will the people in this 3rd party figure out that the media is creating this reality. that is the problem the media. but even here on this site which seems to be a 3rd party site not too many get it when I say that the news media is ruling this country and has for 100 years. And the media are rabid marxist, socalists/democrats. If people don't understand that we'll never get freedom and limited government back. and not too many people understand that.

Did the same thing a month ago.

Good for you—you will have your self respect.

The GOP has done nothing to earn our support for the last two years, this last year especially.

They will cave on the debt ceiling fight also.

It is time for a new party that conservatives can support and that will champion our values.

Until we pull the power we have away from them, they will continue taking advantage of us.

I am more afraid of the GOP-E using our vote to give them the power to destroy my way of life and the future of my grandchildren than I am of a third party keeping Democrats in power.

They had every intention of complete surrender last year during the “debt ceiling” debacle but the TEA Party made them pretend otherwise.

This is the real GOPe, they are nothing more than an appendage of the Democrat Party

Republicans did as good as they could, in this environment, where a shameful media enables, empowers and emboldens a Marxist president, and demonizes anyone and anything that tries to stand in his way. The circumstances put the republicans in a no-win situation. The question now is, when the economy folds even more, can the media combine with the Marxist to continue to successfully put the blame on Bush, who basically lost power in Nov., 2006, when the Communists won both the Senate and the House?

Would splitting the republican party and being in the minority for the next 30 years be different in any way than say the GOP controlling all three branches of government?

Would we pass into law 0% of the conservative agenda, or would we pass into law 0% of the conservative agenda?

I would advise against this if you live in a state with closed primaries. Yes, we know the RINOs are in charge of the show — but leaving the party and thus not participating in the primary process in some states only exacerbates this.

The 151 Republicans who voted NO will miss your vote for them in the primaries, but the 85 Republicans who voted YES applaud you as it means one less vote against them in the primaries where it really counts.

I don't blame you. I have the same opinion of the RNC, and the party as a whole. As I see it the only way it can be fixed is from the ground up. I have been involved in the county party organization, for years. I have beat my head against the wall many times.

More, and more people are seeing the light, I have convincet some fellow Tea Party members to get involved in the County Republican Central Committee, I am noticing some difference in the attitude in local party members.

If we don't do anything to change things, nothing will change, if we leave the party, those in charge will think that we either don't care, or approve of what is going on. I am not about to let anyone off that easy.

Bull crap. All they need to do is vote against anything Obama and the Democratic senate passes and let the shi^@ hit the fan today.

It's always the same, wait, just wait until this or that hits the fan. In the mean time the Republicans keep giving in to the left, and now it's Obama they keep giving in to. When will they hold the line until the left gives in? Just once in my friggen life I would like to see them HOLD! But they never do, and they never will.

They hold the purse, yet they allow Obama to stick his hand in and take what ever he wants because they are afraid of him and the media. Screw the media.

It is time to say no, regardless of what you are called or what lies they tell. Integrity starts with doing the right thing regardless of the lies told about you. The Republican establishment controls the party, and they have no integrity.

So because they cannot stop themselves from dealing with the devil, it's time for us to say no to them. We are beyond the brink, it is now time.

Some people think they are “required” to vote for the GOPe candidate. I’ve never thought that. I don’t vote for liberals no matter the party. Didn’t vote for McCain, didn’t vote for Romney. If Republicans never have another conservative presidential candidate, I won’t ever be voting Republican for president.

I don’t care about the arrows shot at me on this forum because I won’t accept a liberal Republican candidate. Tough cookie, that is just how it is.

0 on Obamacare. No Republican voted for that.

Your bogey man is the GOP. you don’t see the marxists/democrats taking away your individual rights while at the same time growing government . it’s all they do and have done for 100 years.

good and fine you want to destroy the GOP . good when will you want to destroy the democrat party?

Until the GOP understands that the MSM will never be their friend, the GOP will continue caving into whatever the left wants. The conservatives be damned.

Rush told them back in 1993, when they called themselves the Ditto-head caucus, "Do NOT expect the media to like you, they never will. Do what you got elected to do".

But did they listen? NOOOOO! They decided it was better to be loved by the beltway media than liked by those who brought them to the dance.

Well, 20 years later I am saying, "Goodbye, Republicans", it was grand until Reagan retired, but since then it has been one heart ache after another.

I feel like leaving the GOP but hold out.

It is true that the federal GOP stinks to high heaven. It is at the state and the local level that I hold out hope. There has been a lot of change in my state of Michigan. This is due to the local groups over coming the large news organizations. It is still far from perfect but it is getting better.

The biggest problem I see is that to many people are getting bad information from the press and making bad decisions. Till we can overcome the ignorance that is the current media culture we must fight at the local level. It is here where you can make a difference. If you are not in the local GOP how can you expect to get the change that you and I both want. I encourage you to make your views known locally and exercise you right to free speech to counterman the half truths that the media puts out. Intelligent arguments will eventually win but only if you get the message out.

Remember freedom of the press (speech) only matters if you use it. Your only way to get your freedom of press out that I can see is by local participation in local events.

We have a long road to fight on but it is now making fruit in small ways all across the country because of the local elections from the past few years.

I said not long ago that if someone moves against boner the rinos will side with the democrats and either re-elect boner or elect Pelosi. That hasn’t happened yet. But, lots of rinos, including boner, sided with the democrats today.

And all the rinos are going to be hit the same as the dems with the tax increases caused by obamacare. But, they stayed with the GOP so it wouldn’t be split. I’m sure they’re proud. I just hope that eventually they’ll admit they were wrong. I know the liberals will never admit it.

With all this said, the deal passed today is better for me personally than if it had not passed. But it’s worse for my country and the future generations. But you know what? I shouldn’t care because the future generations that I personally know are all in for obama. They’ll be getting what they asked for. And they’ll be giving their children and grandchildren what they did NOT ask for.

The only time republicans vote against anything is when those votes do not matter as to the actual outcome.
