Well, what is to be said?

How do you Mississippi Republicans feel knowing that the DEMOCRATS just chose your candidate? The senile Thad Cochran, who has spent us into oblivion, who is probably cheating on his bedridden wife with an intern, who does indecent things to animals. He, being puppeteered by the abominable fat slob lobbyist Haley Barbor, has stolen your election through fraud. That’s right. Contracting Democrats to vote in the Republican runoff is illegal. The law may be unenforceable, but it is still the law. So in order to stifle the will of the people, the primary voters, the GOP establishment has gone to Democrats to grant them victory.

Oh, I know Dave W is shrieking with glee just as he did when his favorite hack won in North Carolina. I’m sure him and his ilk are ecstatic that establishment prop James Lankford won in Oklahoma thanks to the other fraud Tom Coburn.

So what are you going to do? Well, let me tell you what I’m going to do. I’m going to strongly encourage McDaniel to run as a write in. And if he refuses, then I will work my ass off phone banking for Travis Childers. If Cochran wants to win with Democrats, then he won’t mind Republicans voting for Childers in November! I’m not a damn Republican, and they deserve to lose in November. That’s right, they want to run scumbags like McConnell and Cochran, GO AHEAD. You won’t get my vote nor my time or money.

It may be time for a third party. I have resisted it before, but this is getting to the diabolical stage with the cheating that has gone on here, with blacks being bussed around, pardons being given in exchange for celebrity endorsements.

Thad Cochran is a goon. The man has no honor, and even fewer brain cells. And we ALL know the fix is in. Cochran will retire, and Bryant will appoint Barbour in his place.

I recommend we start seriously talking about a third party now. This has gone FAR ENOUGH. I know the detractors will say the same thing “oh, but Viennacon, then the Democrats will win”. A lot of the time, they might, but what the hell do you call this now?! Democrats choose our candidates. Homosexual marriage is being forced upon the people. The debt spirals on. The IRS has destroyed all the evidence of their persecution. Republicans like to lose. They WANT to lose. We hand them a win in 2010, and they deliberately lose every battle following that.

In Britain, for UKIP to become the national force they have become, they had to challenge the fake conservative party. Who is to say we cannot do the same? The GOP has chosen to go the way of the Whigs. I just cannot help the feeling that it is time to abandon them.

For those on FR who have been pushing for a third party for the last 4 years, you have a convert in me.

I’ll vote for a third party strategically, and for no other reason.

Don't work and vote for the Democrat out of spite.

Just write in McDaniel, or stay home.

I've been done with the Republican Party for years. I don't support any of the GOP organizations and my vote only goes to individual conservative candidates.

What Cochran and the GOP did is unprecedented and has deepened the schism between the grassroots & the establishment.

Me too! Voting for the lesser of two evils, the thought of that makes my head want to explode. Its time for a new conservative party. To hell with the uniparty!
There’s no fixing the Republican Party. They hate conservatives.
If it takes years to get a foothold, so be it. Whether you vote Republican our Democrat, you’re voting for liberals. I’m done!

The answer is not a third party.

The answer is a passport and language skills. If you have kids, you need to get them out. America is gone. Has been for a generation.

The Miss. Republicans that did not bother to vote allowed that to happen.

Apparently they are OK with it.

After 30 years as a Republican I switched to Independent in 2007 shortly after hearing George Bush arrogantly say, "See you at the bill signing".

And I have never regretted it.

The only difference a Senate controlled by Republicans like this POS Cochran and one controlled by Democrats is which cronies get paid.

The America we grew up in is gone.

Anyone who says different is either blind or whistling past the graveyard.

But where to go?

I'm sticking around hoping that we can bounce back ... and hopefully not just the dead cat bounce of 2010.

Yup, no party represents people who are grounded in reality and reason. Might be a few stray individual "R"s who start out that way, but how many quickly embrace the dark side. Sure seems like survival in DC requires that anyone not yet so aligned must immediately sell their souls to the devil.

I would vote for the dem, Cochran must be PUNISHED for his behavior. The GOP cares little more for you and me than the dems do.

I vote for the third party is 1/2 vote against Cochran. Cast a FULL vote against him, don’t just make the statement, SCREAM IT IN HIS EAR!!!!!

Thad Cochran is unfit for office and won by bribing ignorant Blacks with our tax money. Any Mississippi conservative who votes for him in Nov. has no principles. Stay home or go to the polls and write in McDaniel. He is the only conservative in MS politics.

Did you offer them 50 bucks?

That’s how the NRSC got so many dems to show up for Cochran, even though these dems were supposedly so politically apathetic that they didn’t even vote in the primary...

The first thing we need to do is make the GOP-e wish they had never flipped the bird at the rule of law and the people they hope to get donations from. If you’re not a contributor to the NRSC, call them and tell them they need to put you on a list to NEVER, EVER, EVER call.

I quit the GOP last year. Stuff like this is why. The GOP can’t be saved. It can’t be reformed. It’ll always be a refuge for corporate whores and old men that’ll sell their souls for another term in office. There is zero real interest in small and limited government in the GOP.

It’s not unprecedented. McCain pulled this crap in Michigan in 2000, getting busloads of Detroit Democrats to vote for him in the Presidential primary over Dubya (who would never vote GOP in the general).

If it can be demonstrably proven that a candidate used such tactics where it made the difference in a close race (as this one in MS did), they should be immediately stripped of their nomination. They did it here in TN, except it was Democrats who did so with a sitting State Senator where we have an open primary.

Thad won by roughly 7,000 votes tonight. Hinds county is roughly 75% Dem. A robo call went out stating “say no to the tea party. They hate the first black president... say no to the tea party by voting for Thad”

The call was placed mainly to african americans in MS

Here are the number from the main targeted county.. Hinds:

On June 3rd

T. Cochran (i)
65.7%
10,928

C. McDaniel
33.8%
5,621

TONIGHT:

T. Cochran (i)
72.0%
17,927

C. McDaniel
28.0%
6,962

Total vote count with 99.8% reporting:

189,355 thad
182,756 McDaniel

Stolen election.

I am independent all the way. Republican party and the Dems are one and the same.

Nowhere is it more evident than the open borders we have. Costs the average Joe Worker his job. Weakens our country. Creates more welfare dependance. Yet the elites of both parties do nothing to stop it and, in fact, encourage it.

That’s THE issue conservatives should run on.

ANY American knows it’s bad for us to go 3rd world.

Czech Republic ... Sweden ...

Dang, when the Castros die, I'd love to take a chance with the baseball, old cars, and women in Cuba!

You're one of my favorite FReepers, EEE. The mistake a lot of us make is thinking that the Constitution still matters. It doesn't. We can argue about who killed it, but that's irrelevant.

There's a lot of socialist countries (some dictatorships) that we SHOULD hate. But, in practice, their governments have no power. It's all a kleptocracy. Pay cash to avoid taxes. Pay a bribe here and there... nobody bothers you. Even in communist China, there are wide swaths where there is effectively ZERO government presence.

In the USSA, the gov is ubiquituous.

Sadly you’re right.

Obama was a symptom of the decline and an accelerator. The problem is even with him gone, there are still the idiots that voted for him. The takers are procreating and being brought in by the bus and plane load. The wealth creators are getting harassed and shrinking every year.

The re-election of Obama showed we passed the tipping point. Romney’s 47% was dead on - which is why he had to be attacked so violently for speaking the truth.

Add in another million ‘refugees’ and continued death of old white folks / declining white birth rates and the U.S. will be a 3rd world country in no time.

It’s not just the slow decline. The total open southern borders will have every major city in America looking like Detroit. Future generations will look back in amazement at the mysterious civilization that once flourished.

What happened in Mississippi was not just disappointing, but disturbing...however, write this and act like the victor over Cantor didn’t happen, nor the nomination of Ben Sasse, and numerous other victories.

I know you are upset about what happened in MS but this is pretty absurd. Take time to cool off and live to fight another day. There are other races to work on out there besides this one.

Yes. That's my point. But, go into a shop, they'll say "en effectivo?" (cash) and you pay cash and there's no taxes paid.

Wanna' park in downtown Santiago (or any other city in the Free World)? There will be a guy to find you a spot, feed your meter, wash it for a pittance. Even under the "socialist" government. If anybody tried that in any city in the USSA, they'd be beaten up by union goons and imprisoned by cops.

We've forgotten what freedom is.
