Unless you know something others here don't, that article states no plans on the Government taking over the health care industry or raising additional taxes and redistributing the wealth to poor and sickly children.
Add Sarah Palin to that list because she too supports a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants. BGRs are simply fanatics who can never be satisfied and the party really needs to just ignore them and look for votes elsewhere.
“The GOP has suddenly re-discovered fiscal conservatism....precisely when its out of power, and when there is little chance of its newfound fiscal conservatism actually being implemented. This is really no different from when the GOP was beating the drum for a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution the last time it was out of power. Yes, it was a great idea. And was forgotten the moment the GOP came into power.”
Excellent point. Clearly the party did not have “the courage of its convictions” when it mattered and will dispose of them again when they become inconvenient. Oh, well. Gotta start somewhere. And if they fail again, I and many others will conclude finally that the GOP is a waste of time, and it’s either time for another party or time to prepare for the decline and fall of the republic. Some of us are already at that point.
You’re very welcome!
It is conservatives not members of the party who could prevent Gov. Palin, or another conservative from winning the nomination, since you can't even vote for her.
Just how many Republicans can be elected to federal office in the next 12 months?
Did she ever say this when she was not McCain's running mate?
Are you calling her a liar now?
No. I'm calling her a former VICE Presidential candidate.
“I and many others will conclude finally that the GOP is a waste of time, and its either time for another party or time to prepare for the decline and fall of the republic. Some of us are already at that point.”
The GOP has been a waste of time for years now. And the Democrats aren’t any better. They’re just two sides of the same coin. The country will do OK in spite of them, but we would be much better off without both our political parties.
Liberals like you are the reason the GOP became irrelevant in the first place.
No, I’m not a member of Stormfront. And American Renaissance is a perfectly reasonable website for those who are sick and tired of being persecuted by Marxists like you for being white, and who are fed up with whites being murdered and discriminated against and blamed for every problem that brought about by liberals and third-worlders and black race-hustlers.
Just leave the GOP, and join the Democrats that you so ardently agree with. WE are currently purging traitors like you, so make the process easier and just leave.
Oh stop the bullsh*t.
It was Bush, his leftist, socialist policies, along with most of the Republican party. Bush spent money like a drunk lotto winner in Vegas, aided and abetted a violent illegal invasion of our country, right along with most of his party, a party that were more concerned with their party, than with conservative principles.
There is no fighting here, this isn't even debatable.
Bush's legacy is Obama.
You won’t find many of the inbred chat board addicts around here however who agree with you.
“We can’t be a party of small government, free markets and low taxes while supporting bailouts and nationalizing industries, which lead to big government, socialism and high taxes at the expense of individual liberty and freedoms,”
ROTFL. Talk is cheap, and for now at least, so is paper and ink.
The Republican party is not the party of small government, free markets, low taxes or individual liberty. If they were, they would have spent the past 14 years in Congress fighting tooth and nail, using every legislative tool at their disposal to oppose big government. Only a handful of Republicans in Congress actually did that. And many of them were ridiculed and marginalized by the RNC and “conservative” talk radio.
“Too much to hope for, but is the party waking up?”
Nope, the leadership sees the writing on the wall and is making another cynical attempt to keep real conservatives from defecting to a third party.
Forget the policy draft - the only way anything will change is if conservatives get involved at the grassroots level and start voting out the local and state party hacks.
Now hope all the RINOs quit the party!
“I could have told them eight years ago he was a closet socialist (compassionate conservatism is socialist light).”
I did right here 8 years ago!
Goldwater often praised HST, who in my opinion, was among the very worst of the 20th century presidents. But it was his “plain spokenness” supposedly that made him popular long after 1952.
