Posted on 08/15/2013 7:24:31 AM PDT by The Working Man
Just a couple of question about what FReepers think would happen if McConnell, Graham or any of a bunch of the other GOPe politicians would do in the remainder of their terms if they were to lose their Primary Elections, especially if the lost to a TEA Party endorsed opponent.
a.) They would be ticked off and do what they could to take revenge on the people who 'threw them out'.
b.) They would start looking for a 'lobbyist' position so they could stay in D.C.
c.) They would do nothing for the rest of their term and just vote 'present' if they had to vote.
d.) Something completely off-the-wall and unexpected.
a AND b
They will have to go out and get real jobs.
Same as Murkowski; the GOP-E will use Fraud and every $$$$ trick in the book to get their HAND-PICKED RINO on top.
Pull a Murkowski and run as an independent.
If they do “A” then we who live in their districts know where they live. This is way beyond serious. Their treachery is treasonous.
e) all of the above
Switch parties, like they want to do anyway. or go Indy?
Interesting question, but always remember that t*rds must be flushed.
And flushed often.
They will run as independents.
He and the others will do what Arlen Specter did, and what John McCain is apparently doing since he says he’s in his last term: ally with the democrats against the conservatives for real. The masks will come off.
They would lame duck damage conservatives as much as possible and run as an independent or Rat in the general.
After their defeat those Rinos will join with McLame and officially announce membership in the Democrat Party.
We’ve seen the pattern for years now.
First, they tell you that you have to vote for their liberal, because they are the “only ones who can win.” Conservatives are, of course, “unelectable.”
If they are able to coerce enough naive, ignorant conservatives into electing their liberal in a primary, then total surrender and support by conservatives is expected, no matter what.
If they lose the primary, all bets are off. They pull all funding, for sure. They may well directly support the Democrat. But no matter what, they will do anything they can to make sure the conservative loses the general election.
Linda Graham will cry like a little girl.
become lobbyists which should be illegal for at least 10 years once one leaves elected office.
join with Obama saalaama in cancelling all future elections
Nope, like most of them he will just move into a lobbying firm and collect the big bucks while have all the privileges of a sitting Senator except for voting and and an office.
In fact the only state that seems immune to Potomac Fever is Colorado. By my count, there is at least 4 former Senators from Colorado living and working IN Colorado.
Either start up their own political consulting and lobbying firms or get a cushy job with an established firm on K Street. It’s what they all do.
They will attack the republican who beat them in the primary. Meanwhile, the GOP will pull ALL funding because they will assume the race is lost. If the Tea Party candidate wins the general election, the GOP-E will run a well-funded candidate in the next primary.
That is how it ALWAYS turns out.
you would see the Lame Duck Session from Hell IMO.
There is that. They will become lobbyists and lobby against the American people and the Constitution. Why not? They didn’t give a hoot about it when they were in office.
you would see the Lame Duck Session from Hell IMO.
Yeah, I’m afraid you’re probably right on that one. I would expect the UN. Treaty to pass handily at that point.
(a) and (b) are the top choices. Bob Bennett did an (a) to try to prevent the election of Mike Lee. It didn’t work out so well. (b) is the safer option.
The big money from special interests is important.
If they stay out of supporting the candidates who beat the RINO’s then we know a real conservative won the primary.
Maybe the Murkowski option of having a third party RINO to drain votes from the conservative in a general election exists.
They’ve done that in the past like Virginia when Oliver North was the GOP Senate candidate.
The basic conflict is between those who want Liberty and those who want Totalitarianism.
For over a century various names have been applied by the advocates of Totalitarianism to their groups such as Progressive, Socialist, and Communist.
All such names are based on the King-Slave Style of governance.
The last King-Slave System practiced in America was the Plantation System which ended in a horrific Civil War, and consequences that we are still recovering from today.
Currently, the King-Slave Model has been sold to America as a Safety Net, and eagerly embraced by the 47 % who pay no person homage to their King.
The 53 % are being led by Republicans who are afraid of EFFECTIVELY opposing the King.
Hence, we have a watershed position in time rapidly approaching where we, the 53 % who pay our personal Federal Income Taxes, must choose between changing the Leaders of the Republican Party, or continue to financially support these same cowardly leaders.
Partial Government control is Socialism.
There is partial Liberty with Socialism.
Total Government control is Communism.
There is no Liberty with Communism.
Conservatives are dedicated to conserving Liberty.
The Federal politicians who support whole or partial Government control are either Socialists or Communists.
Conservatives should not donate money or time to these Socialists or Communists.
Will you LEAD, follow, or get out of the way?
Our sorry Democrats and RINOs in Congress have chosen to follow as America continues to not oppose The Man in The Big House at 1600 Plantation Avenue, in the District of Corruption.
What say all of you?
Snitch sent a mailer out about Bevins which about claimed Bevins was the devil incarnate. My Mom was buying it all before I told her Snitch was just upset someone finally called him out for the big lib. he really is. It will get nastier before this race is over. And Snitch will run as an independent and lose. And cost Bevins any chance of winning.
