Sarah Palin: Sure There Might be a New 3rd Party Rise if the GOP Doesnít Stay True to itís Platform
A Time For Choosing ^ | August 25, 2012 | Gary P. Jackson

Posted on 08/25/2012 9:57:43 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Sarah Palin was on Fox News earlier today talking to Uma Pemmaraju about the up coming Republican Nation Convention. She also fielded a few viewer questions ranging from how one should vote if they don’t like either candidate, to whether she’d ever run for Governor of Alaska again. She also noted, when asked, that if the GOP doesn’t get it’s act together, and start following the platform set out by it’s members, the party may very well go the way of the Whigs.

(VIDEO AT LINK)

When a lady asks what to do if you can’t get behind either candidate, further asking if she should just refrain from voting, Sarah tells her: “give Romney a shot,” reminding her that we must remove Obama from office, and repeal ObamaCare.

We asked about running for Alaska Governor again, Sarah answered:

I would much rather be able to work on unlocking Alaska’s vast resources. The largest state in the union, so rich in oil and gas and zinc and iron and copper and gold and the world’s richest wild seafood fisheries on our planet. I would rather work on unlocking our resources to help secure our nation for solvency for our sovereignty as a union than be holed up in Juneau again.

The one answer that is sure to strike fear in the hearts of the GOP Elite is the one about a new, third party emerging.

You know in studying history, look what happened in the mid-1800s when the Whig Party went away and the Republican Party surfaced because people, the electorate, got sick and tired of both parties fighting for power and [not] doing the will of the people, that’s why the Republican Party rose up.

So, you know, if history is any indication, it’s certainly a possibility at some point if Republicans don’t remember what the planks in their platform represent. And the planks in the platform are all about equality. They are about equal opportunity, to prosper and thrive in the most exceptional nation in the world, and how do we do that through a free market.

This isn’t a new feeling. Many of us have figured this is the GOP’s last shot to get it right. There are a lot of real solid Conservatives in the Republican Party, but ofttimes their efforts are stymied by what passes for leadership within the party.

After the interview, Sarah posted on her Facebook page reminding supporters she’s headed to Arizona to help Kirk Adams, Paul Gozar, and others:

As I mentioned on Fox this afternoon, I’m traveling to Arizona to join Kirk Adams and other commonsense conservative candidates at a rally on Monday at Joe’s Farm Grill in Gilbert, Arizona.

Check out Kirk’s website www.kirkadams2012.com for more info about the event.

I’m there. I’ve given the gop every chance since 1980 to get it right.

They left me in 1988.

This is their last chance, IMHO.

I’m pretty much there as well.

I am going to vote for Romeny. The consequences of giving Obammy another four years are just too great.

Should Romney be fortunate enough to win, he had better govern as a conservative though. If he fails to introduce critically needed major reforms, then the economy will continue to falter.

The only difference will be that the media that has excused all the bad news of the past four years and has defended the Kenyan relentlessly will change their tune and blame everything on Romney and conservatives.

That would indeed wind up dealing the death blow to the GOP.

I am already leaving the republican party after 2012.. “them” selecting the inventor of Romney-care as the poster boy.. did it for me...

Some is something severely askew in the RP... somethings broken..
and probably cannot be fixed..

I’m bailing.. if enough do it.. then a third party can be viable..
If not the whole RP barrel will turn to vinegar..

Now is the time to start organizing a solid third party, an independent party, free and clear of the Republican and Democrat parties.

Romney is a Gadianton Robber, and has already proven to allow his henchmen to work and conspire in the shadows. His vision for American, while not as extreme as Obama’s, is far from the vision our founding documents provide.

We have bumped the direction to the right with the 2010 election and we will gain more right ward movement in 2012, but if we are serious about restoring America we must have a party and a voice. This will not be easy because the media and both parties elite will try to crush us.

Romney will get a shot. Sarah is more giving him advice (or a warning) that he needs to STILL behave like a Republican once he wins. He may just do that, as he’s run his campaign light years ahead of McCain and probably better than any Republican campaign since the first Bush campaign (where Lee Atwater was the mastermind). His little quip about not having to show his birth certificate probably picked him up 5 points with conservatives alone.

I agree. After November we need to start laying the ground work for a new party. Actually, I guess, in a way, we’ve already started. Thanks to the Internet we’ve already started a network all across the country. Some of my favorite “friends” on FB are conservatives I’ve never met! We will be able to do this one day.....

I adore Sarah Palin but will not vote for Romney. As soon as she is thoroughly disgusted with the corruption and leftist ideology that are sure to be the hallmarks of a Romney administration (if any), I will gladly join her in creating that third party. The GOP deserves the death penalty as did its Whig and Federalist ancestors.

The (much) smarter idea is to take over an existing party, say the GOP.

If you can’t do that, you can’t do a brand new party.

And, anything you can do starting from scratch, you can do quicker and easier within the GOP.

Just ask anyone who has tried.

"if the GOP doesn’t get it’s act together, and start following the platform set out by it’s members, the party may very well go the way of the Whigs"

The more recent and apropo example would be Canada's Conservative Party.

Canada's conservative third party movement, fed up with Canadian CINO Tories, began in earnest about 1993.

By 2006 the Tories were non existant and The Conservative Party had the Prime Minister and the legislature.

If not a third party, Republicans need a Tea Party Caucus in Congress.

Many are disgusted with the Democans and the Republicrats. Just remember, that when she speaks, she is playing 3D chess and everybody else is playing checkers.

When she talks about a SECOND party, that’s where she’s headed in the future. She knows that there is no future in the GOP - for her or for Conservatives. They have done a number on her and refuse to listen to us.

I am a one-man army advocating a write-in campaign for Sarah Palin as our next President. OK, so I’m in a state that is solidly blue and my vote won’t matter. IT WILL MATTER TO ME.

The Going On Progressive party has failed to uphold the principles this nation was founded upon. They are also no longer an opposition party to the Democrats, who are all communists.

A socialist is a patient communist.

A third party would behoove us.

This dovetails nicely with the gist of my post yesterday. I have serious issues, from my perspective as a devout Catholic, with Romney and his stances in this, and I am trying to decide my next move in light of that, and the general thrust of the GOP these last twenty or so years. With the GOP continually trying to edge away from moral conservatism, if I do vote in the upcoming presidential campaign, this is absolutely the pee-or-get-off-the-pot moment. They may, and I stress that word, may get this one last chance. If a single thing is reneged upon, that’s it.

As it is, we either need a third party dedicated primarily to making good moral choices that grows from the ashes of the republican party, or the party itself needs to change. But the dance of playing with romancing the moral conservatives is toast, either way.

Like Voris says, “Let’s look at this a little more deeply. Faithful Catholics don’t want Obama because he is a conduit for evil – no doubt about it.
But think of this .. if/when a faithful Catholic goes into the voting booth and pulls a lever for Romney – he is pulling the lever for a man who supports same-sex civil unions and has stated that he thinks such couples should be able to adopt.
In short, the dilemma is a guy who supports a heck of a lot of evil, or a guy who supports a little less evil. Man, that’s our choice.

And here’s the root of the problem. Faithful Catholics and under political conservatives have been used and abused by the Republican Party establishment for decades. In five of the last 8 presidential elections, a republican has won.

Abortion on demand is still the law of the land and America has continued her downward moral spiral, granted at varying speeds depending on which party is in control.

But that’s just the point – it boils down to a question of just how fast we are rocketing to hell. Warp speed if the democrats are in charge, cruise control if the Republicans are. BUT THERE IS NEVER A REVERSAL OF COURSE.

At some point, Catholics and other like minded moral people, who believe that the number one issue with America is not the economy but moral rot, have got to get out of this box of vote for the bad guy OR the REALLY bad guy.

Moral conservatives have been neglected and thrown crumbs from the table paid lip service for decades by the GOP establishment EXACTLY like African American voters have been abused and thrown crumbs from the table and paid lip service by the Democratic establishment for those same decades.
Million of children are still being aborted and the much of African American community is still mired in crushing poverty. How many elections does it take to realize that the establishment of both parties are conning their base for votes?”

I’d like to add one more thing. In the last election, it wasn’t so much that my wife and I voted for McCain. He made us hold our noses. Lord, but he stank on ice. We voted for Sarah Palin. Enough with the politicians who say anything to get in the seat, and then spend their terms doing nothing effectively but blathering and posturing.

As I posted earlier to someone of a similar-sounding temperament:
Ditto here. I`m not voting for a homo marriage-backing, enviro-whacko, gun-grabbing, health care system usurper like Romney.

I`ve had it with RINOs and their “you-need-to-support-me- because-the-other-guy-is-worse” routine. All the GOP gives in routine is a continual lurch leftward. Look, the GOP-e despises the Tea Party movement as little beyond a “necessary evil” that is to be tolerated at best and disdained at worst.


"Don’t Get Suckered into Supporting the Republican Party" is exactly what folks like George Soros are saying. You can bet some of the biggest supporters (probably even financially if you could dig deep enough) of conservative third parties are liberal Democrats and other leftists who have taken over the Democrat Party and are busily working to take over the Republican Party. They know that dividing the vote amongst a variety of "Hey, I'm more conservative than you 'cause I didn't vote for any Republican" nitwits is one their most effective ways to destroy their opposition and to solidify a political hegemony.

Over the past thirty years they have taken control of one of the two largest political parties in a country where winner takes all in elections and are busily working to fracture the only opposition they have by encouraging conservatives to leave the Republican Party in the hands of RINOS rather than working to take over the party apparatus as they, the Leftists, have taken over the Democrat Party.

For those who say, "Well, I'm a proud member of the Constitution Party or the Declaration Party or the Conservative Party or the Southern Principled Conservative Party of Holy Ghost Fire on the Mountain Pre-Rapture Remnant of the Real Thing Party and someday we'll be big enough to replace the Republican Party, just like the Temperance Party or the Bull Moose Party did":

Doofuses: we don't live in a parliamentary system where representation is divided proportionally between the losers!

It's winner take all, baby, and the sooner you realize that and stop wasting time fighting like cats and Baptists to multiply the number of me-so-conservative parties the sooner you'll have turned back the liberal encroachment on the existing main opposition party to their main vehicle for political power, the Democrat Party, instead of complimenting yourself on just how wonderfully more conservative your loser party is going to be than the one you deliberately abandoned to leftist takeover.
"Hey, I don't like these liberal bumper stickers on this fully functioning vehicle or the places its driver is taking us, right? So, I've got, like, this great plan to deal with that, 'kay? Instead of tossing the driver out on his butt and getting some more appropriate body detailing and then driving it wherever we want to go, we're going to get out at the next corner, wag our fingers really hard at the driver as he speeds off, and then from scratch build our own new most perfectly conservative vehicle and, someday, maybe, enter that into the race! And won't that glorious day be, oh, so grand?"
And you think Jesus is going to say, "Well done, good and faithful servant for refusing to take back the existing opposition party and, instead, throwing your vote to something that couldn't possibly defeat a known enemy because you thought being considered a more nearly "true" conservative party than any other was more important than actually conserving and preserving the Republic against an ongoing enemy onslaught"?

Dream on.

The way it works you create a new party and destroy the one you were coming out of. Single member districts control the number of major parties you can have ~ since eventually you always need 50%+1 vote to win, and every state is a single member district for the Senate, and each Congressional district is a single member district. The Presidency, as well, tends that way in the aggregate.

What we have is a problem with one of our factions. We've named it the GOP-e ~ due to their pretensions of elitism due to greater merit ~ meaning they have access to more money than we do. However, they have a losing record over the last 70 years and have not been good stewards of the Republican brand name.

This is the time to put an end to their standing in the party. The way is to simply usurp state parties first.

The Democrats actually exterminated their old Southern Democrats by creating a totally new state structure, which then disestablished the existing state structure.

Most of that maneuvering was invisible to even experienced analysts ~ but it wasn't invisible to me. I spent a good decade handling special cases where you had one Democrat party in Tennessee (for example) applying for refunds of unspent postage for a totally different Democrat party in Tennessee.

We had that in MS, AL, SC, NC, AR, and possibly other places as well.

TN had that sort of thing all the way down in the County committees!

All the parties are organized as corporate entities, usually under special state laws. This is where you have to hit the GOP-e. Find a state. Create your corporate entities. Propose to run a primary/caucus/convention for your candidates. Invite registered Republicans to attend.

Inside a decade the old GOP-e and their exclusionary rules will be eradicated and the new Republican party will own the label!

The GOP has it's roots as THE third party.

Because the Whigs were too cowardly to confront the Issue of Slavery.

So if they are too stupid to condemn the Idea of Progressive Big Government, they are doomed to repeat the Whigs History.

I say SCREW THEM!

‘And, anything you can do starting from scratch, you can do quicker and easier within the GOP.’

Not necessarily. Sometimes the structure is degraded to the point where it would be simpler, easier, and more productive to demolish it and build a new one. New pipes, new wires, and no GOP-e termites.

Federalist Party—The Party of George Washington—Not a bad name—Or the Constitutional Party, even the Neo-Whigs. A real grass roots Tea Party based party would do it—IF the GOP fails to elect Mitt, or once in power fails to lead—Then they should be discarded like a used tampon. We The People count for something! Then, the power of the internet needs to be used to pull off one of the greatest coups in human history—the toppling of the Two Party-Media dominated—Wall Street Cabal that run things.

Don’t forget Mittler’s lifelong enthusiastic cheerleading for mass baby-killing, his support for perverts adopting children, his active persecution of Roman Catholicism and every other pro-life church under Romneycare, his inclusion of $50 abortions in Romneycare and placing Planned Barrenhood permanently on its board of directors TWO YEARS AFTER Etch-a-Sketch CLAIMS to have become “pro-life,” and that he does not promise outright repeal of Obozocare but “repeal AND REPLACE” whatever that means as the blank check he gives himself to attract anti-Obozocare voters who hear “repeal” but don’t hear “replace.”

SO you have no problem with her coming into local races and endorsing people she has NO IDEA about? She endorsed Paul Gosar over Ron Gould. Paul Gosar was the ONLY freshman tea party Republican who voted to raise the debt ceiling. She endorsed him over Ron Gould the most Conservative member of the AZ State Senate, with something close to a 100% rating by the Goldwater Institute and every organization that measures these things. She also endorsed Jeff Flake over Wil Cardon, the Conservative in the race. So she has become the kind for Republican she said she hated.

Blind adoration is not a becoming trait.

Many of us have figured this is the GOP’s last shot to get it right. There are a lot of real solid Conservatives in the Republican Party, but ofttimes their efforts are stymied by what passes for leadership within the party.

A big amen on that!

Nor is blind stupidity, of which you seem to be an excellent practitioner.

“Blind adoration is not a becoming trait.”

Blinding hatred is what is really unbecoming.....maybe you should look in the mirror!

My post reflect your hatred of Palin. Other than making note of that, I said nothing of Palin either for or against in my post... You’ve just used my comment on your original post to continue to bash Palin....you’re obsessive about it as I said..... Seek professional help!

"Romney should pick Sarah for head of the Department of Energy."

No, he should pick her for Secretary of the Interior so she can abolish the Department of Energy.

I don’t hate her. I do not know why she is picking establishment candidates over the conservatives in races. Wasn’t that why we liked her in the first place. Does anyone see that as a valid point of discussion, or would you just anther keep insulting anyone that asks a question.

Sometimes the structure is degraded ..

The structure is, basically, if you win elections - either for legislative office or for party office - on the local, regional, state or national level, you control the party; and, to a certain extent the structure.

If you can't win elections on these levels in the GOP with your people or manage them effectively when you do, you can't do with a new party either. It's the same tasks, skills, people. Anybody can build a party comprised of their kitchen table. Growing to a size that controls legislation requires greater skill.

What's harder is doing it from scratch when there's already a structure in place, ballot access, assets, systems, etc. etc.

I sometimes wonder if those that complain about the GOPe have ever participated in electing their local, regional and state party enough to understand that this is what the party really is - not some nefarious 'them'. Are you aware of this?
