NRSC Prepares to Interfere in Primaries (To forestall any "Tea Party" candidates)
Breitbart's Big Government ^ | November 25, 2012 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 11/25/2012 8:05:36 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

The National Republican Senatorial Committee had a rotten track record in 2012. But now they’re looking to get more deeply involved in picking candidates at the state level, hoping to foreclose Tea Party primary challengers like Richard Mourdock (R-IN). “There’s always going to be fundamental dislike of the national party coming to a local or a state race and saying, ‘This is who we want to pick,” Keli Carender of Tea Party Patriots told The Hill. The NRSC pulled out of several races this cycle, dooming several candidates to less-than-full financial support...

I don’t think anyone should be surprised at all.

The GOPer goobers have received the last penny from me that they are going to get. I’m done with the GOP. I’m a registered Independent now. I had been registered as at Republican since 1970. The party left me. America has gone into the toilet because the GOP just doesn’t have the stomach to fight for the country.

Tea partiers need to be sure to get to their state conventions and take the policy makers out at that level. Its where your RNC committeemen are chosen and usually only a few hundred votes are enough.

In Michigan only about 1500 total votes were cast but a coalition of tea partiers, libertarians, and GOP conservatives removed uber RINO Saul Anuzis from his national committee chair and replaced him with conservative Dave Agema.

Dear NRSC,

Please continue your voyage up the Obamadork’s smelly Obama.

You’re already half way there.

If the dead can vote...

If the Dead can vote then the dead gotta be able to eat and do many other things that a normal person can do, well except hold a job and be a productive member of society.

The Dead Gotta Eat...

It just occurred to me, all those dead voters need to eat too, I mean if you are dead and you just spent a long election season voting several times for your favorite democrat president, the food stamp president and you get bupkiss for your your vote, well nuts to that, why not sign your corpse-y self up for some government cheese? I mean if dead people gotta vote, dead people gotta eat too?

If Obama is gonna double down in his second term, why not double down on his food stamp numbers by making sure that his favorite voting block is asking “what can government do for me”....

So grab a shovel and a piece of paper and pencil and an acorn clipboard and head down to the local cemetery to sign up the dead tired, starving to death, and those who are just dying to get a good meal or two...

The dead gotta eat, and voting is hungry work.... Starve the beast by feeding the dead...

The Dead Gotta Read...

You gotta be able to read to vote and the dead are no exception. I would suspect that the dead read things like the New Your Slimes, Washington Compost, Mother Bones, and the Rolling GraveStones... So every single magazine subscription card you get need not be thrown away, instead fill it out with name of the dead voter and the address of their residence which would be the cemetery. The dead have got to be able to read all the liberal crap magazines because after all they vote Democrat Every Single Time....

The dead gotta read, cause you gotta read to vote... Starve the liberal MSM media beast...

The Dead need a Phone...

Besides Voting the dead gotta be able to take phone calls, how else are they supposed to respond to pollsters asking them which way they will vote. It is so very hard to get a landline installed at your grave-site these days but there is a solution, the magical Obamaphone is just the thing. Sign up all these poor “Living Impaired - Americans” to an Obama Phone or two, heck they may need more phones as after the batteries run out in their first phone they can’t recharge them, I haven’t seen too many electrical sockets in graveyards.

The Dead gotta be Polled... Starve the Beast by Picking up the Courtesy phone...

Many may think this is humor but it is not supposed to be funny, and many here have talked about “Going Galt”....

To heck with “going Galt” it is too slow, instead of going just over their heads by going Galt and refusing to be a maker, Go WAY OVER THEIR HEADS and “Poll Vault” by becoming a SUPER TAKER, or an “Under Maker” and sign up the dead to as many social programs and government freebies as undead-humanly possible.

If it is good enough for an election system that the UN observers from crap-hole countries are surprised about how insecure it is. But the left cries “voter suppression” like a stuck pig when a simple fraud prevention measure like photo ID is required by a state, then why the hell should the welfare state and the apparatus that supports it be any different.

When you are fighting against people who’s playbook is dedicated to satan (rules for radicals), you have to start using the playbook written by cuthulu!

Trying to play Mr. Rogers doesn’t work when the Civil Society has been destroyed by the “Great Society”, it is time to play Mr. Machiavelli.

To hell with Civil Disobedience, it is past that now, it is now time for Economic Disobedience, and Social Program Disobedience.

They want Communism, Maybe we should give them so much damned communism they choke on the damn stuff by collapsing the socialist systems they have “frog boiled” us into taking. We MUST shove that communism they love so DAMNED MUCH so DAMNED far down their DAMNED throats that they will still be crapping out hammers and sickles after they become the “Voting Dead” because they will be ANYWAY.

But is must be done SOON, because once they take away certain parts or all of amendments 1-10, the quick reset option will not be possible, just misery and Soviet style decline.

Yes and make the DEMS and RNC go over their cliff together...

The story goes for the next round.. The sabotage continues. This is what we reap from a McCain run at the White House, what we’re going to get in spades from the Romney run. THIS is the problem with supporting RINOs, they beget more RINOs, they whine that conservatives and Tea Partiers are ‘pushing away voters’ while the RINOs convince vast tracks of what should be easy votes to stay home and sit on their hands.

This is when we MUST work our hardest, to purge out these Romney money people, the remaining McCain money people, and push forward conservative candidates who can boldly do something shocking - have a position DIFFERENT from the liberal who’s running for the Democrats.

Because this whole idea of running liberals on our side to ‘win’ is a losing bet.

Some of us have been watching the democrats run things all of our lives going back to the 1950s and 1960s, and wondering why the republicans could never be effective, now we know why, it really is a team effort by the two parties.

OK, so somebody tell me....seriously, as one who fully supports the Tea Party movement....why did freakin’ ELEVEN Tea Party candidates for the house lose a few weeks ago? These were first-termers seeking a second term. Tell me.

I seriously want to know. Was it because the GOP machine backed their primary opponents, causing them damage? Whatever, I want to know.....

It costs real money these days to run for national committeeman, about as much as city council or state legislator in a small state unless you’re real creative.

I am hoping they can work together to get the best candidate. Both sides have varying degrees of success, maybe if they try working together we can win. The article seems to say that when they have worked together we got Rubio and Cruz....I can live with them.....unless I am not understanding the article.

During my ‘formative’ years of first observing politics, I’d notice how the Democrat politicians here in the South would come down and give these conservative-sounding speeches to big, approving crowds. But the moment they were back up in DC, they’d be voting lib right alongside with Ted Kennedy on every damn bill. They were two-faced, and the complicit local media often kept their voting record pretty obscured, keeping everyone fooled.

I gravitated immediately to the Republicans, because at least they seemed to vote according to their speeches and stated positions (although their degree of conservatism might have varied a bit). There wasn’t really any big subterfuge, and that impressed me. But that was back then. Nowadays, the GOP has turned into what those southern Dems were. You can’t trust them one single bit. They talk conservative to their constituents, then go back up to DC and support big-government in all its variations, while cowtowing to the ruling elites and their media minions. Makes me want to vomit.

I used to believe the route was to reform and remake the GOP, but the rot and corruption seems too deeply embedded. Just like what is reflected in this article (not to mention the shenanigans at the GOP convention; the backstabbing of genuine conservatives, etc.). I’m more than ready to bolt.

I’d like to know exactly what constitutes a Tea Party candidate platform? I have always believed that we Tea Partiers were fiscal conservatives. Lower spending, lower debt, control of monetary policy..

Did I miss a fax or Email.. But, when did we adopt all of the social policies of the Fundamentalism of the Right Wing? I’m just curious..

I’m sorry, I fought hard for the Tea Party, attended marches, contributed to the party fundraisers, and sent in dozens of OpEd pieces, and Radio interviews.. What did I miss?

Don’t know about Rubio but I can tell you that John Cornyn DID NOT want Cruz to replace Kay Bailey in Texas. He was all in for Dewhurst. Cornyn is GOP-E to the core and has a lot of power in the Senate. I only hope we have someone else run in 2014 because I absolutely will never vote for him again for anything, including our local dog catcher.

This is a good time to quit the Republican Party. This is also a good time to start building a REAL Third Party.

The Republican Party, as most of us knew it, has been dead for a long time. They are eating each other alive and trying to figure out how to stay in office. The only thing they can come up with is to become the Dem Party II.

Bye, Bye Repubs, I am over ya...completely.

Murdock and Aiken did us a great disservice through their poorly worded comments. They may have even cost us the election. I would not defend them.

Having SAID this, the GOP deserves a quick and merciful death.

Conservatives and tea party people should separate themselves from this decaying edifice and set up a third political party. As long as they are wedded to the GOP ANY effort to successfully counter the Dems will be fruitless.

The Republican Party has become merely the safety valve of the left to allow dissenting opinions to harmlessly vent themselves without doing any real damage to the leftist agenda in America. Differences between Cantor and Boehner and McConnell and the Dems are merely matters of degree.

The GOP doesn’t want us, takes us for granted, and despises us. We should leave. Now. The sooner the better. I will never give one more dollar to the GOP.

The danger, of course, is that this could very well cause the creation of a third party.

On the other hand, given the size of the tea party movement, it could turn the GOP into the third party.

You know me much better than that. Actually I don't.

Well, I beginning to wonder about you, my FRiend, most of the oldtimers on this site do know me well enough to know I have fought and continue to fight for a solid majority of Conservative principals in our government.. Not just in words and personal beliefs, but in governance..

I put my reputation on the line when I use my name against the industry I'm in, at the detriment of my career, everyday.. I will not just sit back and have someone bully me into a stupid corner, because YOU have the audacity to challenge me with titles like MODERATE..

Who made you the arbitrator of party loyalty??? That is exactly what I am talking about..

Are you telling me that YOU couldn't think of a better way to defend yourself in a fight with a demagogic, socialist moron like Claire McCaskill, over an issue like date rape? You couldn't think of a better way to defend yourself than our good ole boy did? REALLY?

I have the sinking feeling that if we can't find a better way to define what, and where we are going, we will never get there? If YOU think YOU could find a way to shove ME out of a discussion with the implications as vital as this?

I am no longer a Conservative because I asked a simple question? If YOU and other dogmatic purist can lose guys like ME, I can't think of a better way for US to maintain the minority..

I was never the third party type. I still believe Romney is a decent man with talents and skills that would have helped America. But, honestly, the RINOs couldn't even be bothered to be on Romney's side! Look at how they're behaving now, the Lindseys and the Jindhals (what has happened to Jindhal?)--

We no longer have anything to lose by forming a third party.

Third party is what the GOPe wants you to do.

The real answer is what the TEA Parties have been doing - work at taking over the GOP from the inside. It will take longer than the slightly less than 4 years they’ve been at it. This is obvious, if you think through it. You can’t do this overnight.

Then we'd better turn a lot of effort to getting the South Carolina GOP to field an alternative to Lindsey Graham. I see him strutting around the same way he did in 2006 when we lost the house and senate. He's setting himself up to sell out conservatism again.

If we can't get Graham out of the Senate when the voters of SC can't stand the man, then we can't do what you hope.
