And this is why I’m no longer a Republican. The party left me first.

Jerks. They don’t want the press to keep attacking them. And they want the wealthy libs to invite them to all the fashionable parties.

They could care less about their base voters. Or the lives of children and innocent babies.

I no longer contribute to the “party”. I cherry-pick conservatives with conservative values and support them with individual contributions.

Idiots. The country is trending pro-life and traditional marriage (except for the courts, obviously) and they want to undermine our position as a party. Brilliant.

If you don’t like the GOP—look at the American Independent party-Constutional Party in Nevada. They are in place. They are in harmony with the Tea Party. Russ Best is running for Congress 4th district, Carson City. He’s a great guy and will stand for the people. He’s AI a true Conservative.

He’s right; give it time, and the GOP as a whole will embrace abortion and queer marriage. They’re definitely on the road to that destination.

My only regret, as a Virginian, is that I don’t register by party, so I don’t have the satisfaction of ripping up my GOP card.

There are two related issues in my opinion.

The liberals are fighting the war on women. The way the liberals discuss the issues, if you oppose abortion on demand, you hate women.

Homosexual marriage is the same mindset. If you oppose homosexual marriage you are said to hate the homosexual peoples.

So to avoid liberal and media scorn, they have abandoned abortion and marriage issues to the liberal premise that you are hateful and bigoted against certain people, if you oppose the liberals.

Sorry but I think that Nevada is far more Libertarian than Republican, i.e. legalized gambling & prostitution as lifestyle!

Yes, there are many good social conservative Republicans in Nevada but liberal GOPers in NV want to be "popular" to media.

What they fail to understand is that when voters who lean liberal have the choice of genuine liberal Democrats or phony wanna-bee liberal Republicans, they'll pick the true blue Democrats each and every time and the social conservatives stay home (KS once liberal GOP is living proof - that's what got us Kathleen Sebelius!)

Unfortunately, any strong Conservative independent candidate in the 4th district will help reelect Democrat Horsford in a seat that should elect a Republican (like Black Conservative Niger Innis). Carson City isn’t even in the 4th district, either.

So do I!

I support TEA Party candidates, several of the various TEA Party Organizations, and some serious conservative PACS.

I am hoping we open a huge can of Whoop Ass on the LIEberals and the RINOS in November!

the old drum of Vote for the GOP or get a Liberal Democrat is not ringing true. We need not list the times this tactic has worked—Ross Perot is an example. But those times are past! The old Vote the RINO mantra doesn’t work anymore. Vote for who you believe in—not who your told to Vote for. Check out the people—Vote your heart—not who the Media tells you to vote for.

Why doesn't the State's GOP Chairman just change from R to D? In my mind, there's no difference between a pro-abort republican and a democrat anyways...

They have to maintain the façade that we have a two party system. Else a party might rise that would actually be a opposition to the Socialist, a/k/a Democrat party.

The purpose of the Republican Party is to prevent the forming of a Party that would actually oppose the Democrat Party.

What makes you say the country is trending for actual marriage? Whenever I look at the actual popular vote results that have been held on the issue through the years I unfortunately get the opposite impression.

Power fills a vacuum. The GOP is not merely dead, it is in an advanced state of decay. It is past time to bury the carrion and for a new movement to lead.

Insane. Just to think, when I was first drawn to become a Republican Party voter, the issues attracting me were things like balanced budget ammendments, family values, term limits and such. Nowadays, the GOP seems downright antagonistic to everything that once led me to them.

I can’t entirely decide of which the (Nevada) GOP caving to the degenerates on these issues is. Either it’s an example of such unbelievable cowardice that it engenders almost unspeakable contempt and revulsion in me towards the GOP. Or, it’s just showing that GOP is indeed becoming a true partner in evil with the Dems.

All I can add is that were my state GOP to do this, I can guarantee beyond a shadow of a doubt that I would no longer give them a single vote, big office or small.

Nope. #1, I’m not urging people to vote for RINOs. I’m saying that if the Republicans put up a Conservative nominee in an evenly-divided district, 3rd party Conservatives risk splitting the vote and electing a Democrat. Horsford won with 50% and the Libertarian & AI candidates took from the Republican in 2012. This could happen again in 2014, and there’s no excuse for it.

#2, Mr. Best doesn’t even live in the 4th district. His residence is Stagecoach. This is in the 2nd district. He ran there in 2010 & 2012. Why isn’t he running there again ?
I can only think he is running in another district with a Dem incumbent (that he doesn’t reside in) for the purposes of taking votes from the GOP nominee and ostensibly helping Horsford to another term. If you don’t have a problem with this, I question your agenda here.

Nearly every place it’s been put to a vote (except MD notably), the people have stood for traditional definitions of marriage.

But what about how much they passed by, and when they passed in comparison with one another? For instance, if someone would have told you in 2000 right after CA passed prop. 22 by 61% that in the year 2012 NC also vote on the issue and pass an amendment by the same % as CA, would you have believed them? Seems to me the trend of a state like NC being twelve years behind a state like CA isn’t a positive trend at all. 8 years after prop. 22, CA held another popular vote. Prop. 8 passed, but only by 52%, they lost 9% on the issue in 8 years.

Well, my question remains why he suddenly feels compelled to run in a district he doesn’t live in (unless he has since switched his residency, but according to OurCampaigns, he’s still a resident of Stagecoach in the 2nd). I’m also of the opinion that if the GOP puts up a Conservative, the right-leaning 3rd partiers should stand aside and endorse the Republican.

It’s that nonsense that cost us seriously in California when now-Congressman Tom McClintock was running statewide and a Conservative 3rd partier cost him more than the amount of votes needed to have made him the only Republican to win statewide in 2002 (which, in turn, would’ve vaulted him to the odds-on nominee to have run in the Guv recall instead of the execrable Austrian Socialist Ah-nold).

So you backed big government RINO Liz Cheney in Wyoming but Republican tea party activist Niger Innis isn't conservative enough for you, so you want Nevada-4 voters to waste their votes on some third party dill weed and help Horsford to another term?

It sounds to me like you are are either "in harmony" with the democrats or on some kind of drug that's robbed you of your higher cognitive functions.

Your words, Impy, betray you as a Liberal—resort to insults rather than debate an issue. I spoke of not one thing about Wyoming (My father was born there) yet you bring it up— the ‘Dill Weed’ you speak of isn’t a Democrat Shill—He is a good conservative. If the GOP person is a better choice—say why. You can’t. I hope the DNC is paying you well, Sir.

The conservative Republican candidate can win the election; the loser you’re shilling for will be lucky to break 5%, but every vote he gets makes it easier for the liberal Democrat to win. This is a no-brainer for conservatives.

You words there betray you as a fool (or liberal), thinking Liz is a member of the tea party.

And yet Niger Innis isn’t tea party enough for you so you’d rather help the democrat win?

So what are you? Fool or liberal troll? DNC paying ME? That’s extremely rich based on your post, I’m not the one suggesting conservatives vote against the conservative Republican so it’s easier for the democrat to win, YOU are.
