I want to Thank all "Conservative" Non-Voters
November 18, 2006 | new yorker 77

Posted on 11/18/2006 8:26:57 PM PST by new yorker 77

Thank you for giving us blanket amnesty for illegals.

Thank you for courageously abandoning our troops.

Thank you for handing victory to the terrorists.

Thank you for guaranteeing higher taxes.

Thank you for guaranteeing no more conservative judges.

Thank you for empowering John McCain.

Thank you for bringing back universal health care.

Thank you for endless investigations.

Most of all, I want to thank you for showing complete disregard for the tens of thousands who spilled their blood to give you your right to vote.

Your callous, self-serving apathy has guaranteed the government actions that you so bitterly complained about.


A final reality check to all you non-voters who still call your self conservative:

You are not a conservative.
You define un-American.
You define un-patriotic.
Please stop pretending to care about the troops.


To all you people who actually voted.

Thank you for defending our Constitution.

Replace "conservative non-voter" with GOP and you would be closer to correct.

The GOP has to get votes. Complaining about votes they didn't get serves absolutely no purpose whatsoever.

It is the GOP that let everyone down, not some mythical block of "conservative non-voters"

The sooner we conservatives get this, the better. We need a GOP that cares about the things you listed and more.

I hope they'll be happy having pelosi as speaker and reid as senate majority leader.
Funny that now Reid and Pelosi are calling for co-operation and talking about putting politics aside. After they've demonnized the president they now want republicans to work with them so they can further their agenda, how nice of them.

Good for you.

I'm sick of these self-righteous reincarnations of the Buchanan Brigades (aka Bill Clinton's best buddies) and the SavageWeiners (aka Jerry Brown supporters) who wag their fingers about what it "really" means to be a conservative.

By their definition, a real conservative is one who's trying to save liberalism while preening about "voting their conscience". To hell with them.

This line of attack is wearing thin and accomplishing nothing.

I voted straight GOP in this election here in PA... but there's no way I could have brought myself to vote for Mike Fitzpatrick if he had been in my district. The man bailed on the war, distanced himself from the President and touted his Sierra Club endorsements endlessly in the final weeks of the campaign. The guy deserved to lose, damn the consequences. And that's precisely what he did.

I don't begrudge anyone their right to not vote for that squish, or any other squish like him.

Instead of blaming voters for not supporting 10th rate candidates, maybe you should save some of that ire for the impotents who gave these squishes to us in the first place.

Or should we all just be like lobotomized Democrats and vote solely based on the letter accompanying the candidate's name?

There is as much responsibility as well as shame for the liberal, independent, and libertarian voters who voted for the party of mass deception and corruption.

How about the vote fraud, you think liberals only won with legal votes?

Well see, now that they're the ones in majority, they do want co-operation so they can get their bills passed and take all the credit for it. I had to laugh when I heard Reid talking about putting politics aside, yeah, this from people who accused the president of lying so he can take us to war. I don't buy that they're interested in playing nice.

I agree with you. I'm sad we lost the election, but you're right - it's the GOP that left the voters - not the other way around. I held my nose & voted straight GOP, but I wasn't happy about it. I've felt for some time that no one was listening to me.

Here, in this forum, we are more dedicated to the cause than your average American voter. Most people just won't bother to vote if the candidates don't light a spark with them. You can blame them if you want, but I don't think it's their fault.

Even after the loss, I find myself wondering if they are listening now - or if they are still taking my vote for granted.

I held my nose and voted "R".

Many of my fellow citizens voted "D" and gave control of the Senate and
House to the Democrats.
They voted for illegals and against the enforcement of laws on the books.

Open-borders and open-ended Amnesty will be law next year.

I'll just have to get used to it.
They like the idea of the USA being a "Sanctuary Country" for everyone
for any reason.

All I can do now is think of something that Winston Churchill said
after voters in the UK realized they'd made a horrid error...
"The more they thought of it, the less they thought of it."

I just hope they realize this before election day 2008.

The only offices I didn't vote for Republicans this time, were the ones that had no Republicans running.

And THOSE got write-ins for Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. . .

You hit the nail on the head! IMHO it was the national talk radio show by A--H--- Savage that got these voters confused. They voted against their own best interest. As for Savage his best interest is his ego.

The GOP simply moved away from the ones that brought them to the dance, no more, no less.

The true God-fearing Republicans won for the most part. The limp-spined whiny ones lost.

Blame the GOP and its leadership for their stupidity, not some "unnamed" voter.

I voted - and I voted for almost every Republican on the ballot. Some won. Some lost.

Still, I can understand those who felt no enthusiasm for voting for a party that spent like drunken sailors and practically enjoyed shooting themselves in the foot at every turn, including three sure House seats HANDED to the Democrats because candidates on the ballot chose to drop out and leave their constuencies with no hope of keeping the seat in Republican hands.

The Republican Party has become a coward party that won't choose to fight for itself. Who, besides Lynne Cheney, fought back against all the lies and deception of the Democrats and their lapdog media during the election? I didn't see any.

Replace the GOP with some real men and you'll get the voters to come back. The cowardly bunch of crooks in Washington now just turn my stomach. A major overhaul is needed, not just minor tweaking.

I'm so sick and tired of people blaming the voters for the GOP's loss. The GOP leadership has been garbage for far too long. And when you have a man in the white house who wants amnestly, that doesn't help the party.

I was just waiting for him to come right out and apologize for being a member of the GOP.

What a sad sack candidate he was.

Yet, according to the win-at-all costs Pragmatics, anyone who failed to vote for that unprincipled stiff should be ashamed of themselves.

They act like this is a football game. "Just win baby!"

They're getting on my last nerve.

Has it occurred to you that conservatives did, in fact, vote? Could it possibly be that the Democrats, combined with moderates actually outnumbered us?

The lack of results from the Republican controlled congress drove the moderates away. It is entirely possible that the moonbats will drive them back if the Republicans smarten up and start working together for conservative principles.

If the McCain arm of the party continues to control the outcome of every decision, the future of the Republican party is bleak at best.

The swing voters are the ones most to blame. Independents went heavily to the Dems this time. And blame those in Congress who demoralized the base with their poor performance and their weak campaign. Had Congress down a better job of keeping spending down and sticking to Conservative principles and had the Republicans managed to run a campaign with a coherent message and a modicum of unity we'd have won hands down.

I agree about Savage. He was so full of himself before the election...did 8 million listeners really sit home because he decided to pay the GOP back for not going on his show? I don't know. I bet some did. For me it just showed where Weiner is really coming from and now I listen to Levin.

Here's why:

It is your "perception" that half of FR folks stayed home. I'd bet that very few FR people failed to vote. You are confusing what you read in the press about the "stay-at-home Republicans."

I find your incessant rants objectionable.

The last time I looked, voting was not compulsory.

Stating that someone who didn't vote as being unpatriotic? That dopey statement really frosts my ass.

It's an American's right to choose.

In '08 I'll be voting for Newt or Rudy. If you disagree, am I unpatriotic because I didn't vote for your guy?

Do you think Joe Lieberman and Zell Miller are unpatriotic? I'm sure they voted for democrats.

Take a deep breath, suck it up, and just get off it.

I understand your feelings. I think it's the responsability of everyone to vote, conservative or liberal.

I also think it's the responsability of our elected officials to defend our borders and our laws when in office. If they do not. Well, there's not much for the voter to get excited about.

See, I think when election day did come, the likely conservative voters did vote. The problem is that this likely voter would normally be excited enough to be encouraging the unlikely voter to go and vote. This likely conservative voter you talk about probably did vote, but probably wasn't excited enough to go and work to get out the vote as did happen in 2002 and 2004. I think that's where we lost.
