And now he owes them. Or, Mississippi owes them as it were.
The GOP died in Mississippi. They are stupid to realize it.
Yes they did.
Sounds like just all lather/rinse/repeat of what some (most?) in the TEA Party say.
you can bet they will come to collect
When the Repugnant candidate is the same as the rest of the America haters, why bother?
What do you call the GOP without the conservative vote?
Yes. Yes it is.
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.
To follow the lead of Ronaldus Magnus:
“I didn’t leave the Republican Party, it left me. . . “
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?
Reagan’s attempt to convert the GOP to a conservative party has failed.
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?
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.
The nomination of Romney was the same, only louder.
