Time to say goodbye to the GOP?
Communities Digital News ^ | June 25, 2014 | Boyd Cathey

Posted on 06/29/2014 8:23:05 PM PDT by kingattax

It’s time to say good-bye to the establishment GOP and “mainstream conservatism.”

Yesterday in Mississippi, dirty politics won again. Republican Party elites, the Republican National Committee, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Senator John McCain, and incumbent Senator Thad Cochran’s specially targeted outreach to black and Democratic voters did the trick.

Cochran ran behind state senator and conservative Chris McDaniel in the June 3 primary. To make up his deficit, Cochran, with full support from the national GOP, directed a full press effort to enlist voters who basically oppose everything that Republicans are supposedly for.

Thus, Cochran, with support from the national GOP, reached out to hostile liberals and Democrats, the NAACP, and other groups that scorn conservative ideas. He pleaded with them to support him, to keep the “extreme right” and “crazies” and “racists” from taking his seat.

In return, he promised more of the same: more government goodies, more spending, more welfare checks, more “moderation,” and more outreach to those hostile groups. An outrageous Cochran flyer warned black voters against voting for a candidate — McDaniel — who would suppress their vote and return them to the bad old times of segregation.

No.

Time to form the US Independence Party as a caucus inside the GOP. Attract enough sitting Members of Congress, Governors, State Legislators and the local officials to be seen as formidable.

Then, be the “honest broker” or go the way UKIP in the British Isles has, whichever seems wiser.

Agree.

This election served a useful purpose. It showed there’s essentially no difference between America’s two ruling parties. They serve the same leaders ultimately and, push come to shove, they will cooperate to shut out anyone trying to reinstate our Constitutional Republic.

The “party of no” hugely anti-Obama etc. was shown to be the myth it always does.

BOTH parties are pro-Amnesty, pro bailouts and handouts. It’s the same crew in the same car but they just trade places at the wheel from time to time.

When your party no longer tries to get your vote they are no longer your party by their choice. How can they expect me to vote for them when they don’t want my vote and instead they seek the opposite view point for support?

Seems pretty clear that they no longer want me to vote for them.

The Republican Party themselves have said ‘good-bye’ to conservatives a long time ago. Most notably after the Romney loss they had a soul searching meeting and concluded that the pro-Constitution conservatives were the problem. Rush has said several times that the GOP is “embarrassed” by conservatives, particularly Christian conservatives.

Some are only now getting the message apparently.

that goes all the way back to Jerry Falwell's "Moral Majority". this group worked very hard to get President Reagan elected.

'Rockefeller or Country Club Repubs' (GOPe) had no use for these people. they wanted their votes and their money, that's about it.

The GOPe already has said “Goodbye” and “Don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out” to all of us here already...

“....to enlist voters who basically oppose everything that Republicans are supposedly for.”

That is a lie. Cochran and the liberal democrats/blacks don’t oppose anything the republicans stand for. They’re on the same side.

I have a friend who has been very supportive of republicans for years. He gave a lot of money. Last year he decided enough was enough. He hasn’t donated since and tells those who ask for money to go to hell. And he says he’s through voting for them.

The gopE doesn’t want our votes. And they’re about to find out that they’re not going to get them.

As for Mississippi, the plantation owner loaned his slaves to the Cochran plantation to plant the cotton. They will go back home when it’s time to pick the cotton in November. Cochran’s cotton will rot in the field.

And now he owes them. Or, Mississippi owes them as it were.

I knew the Repugnants were dead during Jorge Busho's time in office. I nearly puked voting his second term as well as for McSlime.

When the Repugnant candidate is the same as the rest of the America haters, why bother?

Nobody seems to get it.

You take the voters, divide them approximately in half along the big government/small government spectrum, and you have the two party system. It doesn’t matter what you call these parties.

The problem is, that dividing line between the halves has shifted toward big government, because the demographic has shifted. It doesn’t matter what you call the parties. Voters have become dumber. Renaming the parties won’t make the voters smarter.

Only changing the demographics of the voters will change politics. Either have a famine or other disaster that effects the dumb half of the voters more than the smart half, or change the “one person, one vote” paradigm.

Nothing else will have any effect.

If the Tea Party can organize, then I suspect a lot of conservatives, including those left in the Republican Party, would switch over.

The Republican leadership only seems interested in keeping its conservatives in check. There is really no opposition party right now. This is why the Democrats are running wild. Now there are some exceptions like Ted Cruz, but I’m talking about the Republican Party leadership on the national level.

I suspect that the entire Republican Leadership is compromised too. The NSA has admitted they spy on congress.

If I had to guess, then my bet is that if a congress member plays along life is good. However, if they don’t play along, then someone in the media will expose them for an affair, corruption, etc...

So now anytime I hear a congressman did..... In the media. My first thought is I wonder what that politician opposed to get him exposed?

I’ve been a Republican for 40 years.
I’m thoroughly disgusted with them at this point and will not again call myself one.
No difference between the two parties.
Both want this big gub mint to continue getting bigger as they are all making loads of money and don’t want to rock the boat.
Go along get along and continue to fleece the people.
Well to hell with em both.
And as for this un-American antiChristian baboso fag in the white hut?
F him

Here on FR? The point is moot.

In America as a whole? Conservatives, inexplicably, appear to remain in the minority on the right side of the political spectrum. A big chunk of the political “right” still votes for the RINO/GOPe candidate, just like demonrats reflexively vote for 0bama and his ilk.

I would hope that this mess in the SIPP’ would slap a bunch of them back to reality, but I fear it won’t matter one dang bit.

Party means very little anymore. It is more like the Government against the People. This is not going to be fixed by elections anyway. Too late for that.

People would be better off figuring out how to take power from the government who is setting in place the Global Government.

This party thing is another way of dividing and all the hoopla is a distraction from what is really going on.
