I already have.
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.
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.
Do I enjoy the thought of punching liberals in the face?
The GOP died in Mississippi. They are stupid to realize it.
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.
Some are only now getting the message apparently.
I did long ago.
It’s at the point I treat people as it they have donated to al-Qaeda when I hear they have donated to the RNC.
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...
Only an abused wife or beaten down dog would stay with the GOP these days...
Long since gone.
I left last year.
The Greedy Old Progressives have been gone for years. But nobody wants to bury the carcass.
“....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.
And now he owes them. Or, Mississippi owes them as it were.
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.
