"the dwindling GOP conservative contingent"

Wrong, we're getting stronger every day.

Are you starting that same old third party absurdity that we had to suffer through four years ago?

It still seems impossible that so many FReepers really believed that Buchanan was going to win the election up until the very day of the election. They told us that the polls were all wrong because they didn't poll all the new Buchanan voters who had signed up, that Buchanan voters were afraid to admit it for rear of being thought to be racists, that Buchanan voters didn't have phones, refused to answer polls, were trying to make Republicans over confident, etc....

After Buchanan got less than half of one percent of the vote they still were in denial and apparently still are today.

Just thought you'd appreciate a little corrective editing here. As I mentioned earlier, you're sure as hell not a loyal American conservative. Not with your pro-illegal alien record.

Typical strawman argument. First, by definition the Buchananites are a trivial fraction of the Republican base and therefore have zero effect on where the Repubs are headed. Next, you've again tried to claim opposition to illegals is a political loser, when in fact prop 202 in Arizona and other indications are that it is a winning issue.

Why don't you try and confuse the issue further by mentioning the Star Trek contingent, that ought to go over just as well.

"Wrong, we're getting stronger every day."

Why then for the first time in recent history are both Democrats and Republicans viewed negatively by voters across the nation?  Both are polling a 60% negative among voters.

"Are you starting that same old third party absurdity that we had to suffer through four years ago?"

Something more powerful than a third party is showing signs of life.  It is unorganized, and has both Democrats and Republicans looking over their shoulders.  In states that allow it, voters are changing from registering with a party and selecting "No Party" or "Decline to State" as their designation.  Both major parties are losing registrations to this such independent classifications.  It perplexes both major parties because they spend millions in party and government funds trying to gain new registrations, yet they are losing ground to an unorganized, unfunded phenomenon.  The two parties are trying hard to stop the phenomenon with a combined effort.

It's a quiet stirring of citizens that have realized the betrayals of both major parties.  The citizens are leaving the parties that abandoned them.  You are still in the majority bayourod.  You have given yourself to a one of the two major political parties.  Maybe the day will come when the majority of our citizens will shrug of the vested interests of the two parties for something that represents the concerns of most citizens.
