Show me where in her plan she plans on Raising Taxes or Nationalizing anything.

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.

No no no no no no NO! Your kind is exactly why The GOP is a dying party. I hope I live to see the day that all racists are finally driven from my party so we can finally create a party for 21st century America.

It's detestable that you would link to that white supremacist site. Are you a member of Stormfront by chance? One of David Duke's jack-booted thugs?

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.

Has the RNC finally figured out what the rest of us knew in grade school?
The more you try to play nice with the playground thugs the harder they punch you in the face?
Let's hope so.
Maybe I'll even switch my party affiliation back to G.O.P.
I'm sure they'll understand if I don't hold my breath.

“The GOP has suddenly “re-discovered” fiscal conservatism....precisely when it’s out of power, and when there is little chance of it’s 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.

He may not be the only one, but I agree that he is one of few, and we need that kind of "extremism" to ever hope to change things for the better.

If Palin can roust the GOP in 2012, I may rejoin

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.

If they wanted to make a stand against socialismm, they would be working on electing more Republicans to counter Obama and the Democrats.

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?

No. I'm calling her a former VICE Presidential candidate.

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.

Republican infighting was what got us Obama and the Dem majority in Congress.

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.

Perfect truth.

“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.

“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.

[snip] The corporate forces that are looting the Treasury and have plunged us into a depression will not be contained by the two main political parties. The Democratic and Republican parties have become little more than squalid clubs of privilege and wealth, whores to money and corporate interests, hostage to a massive arms industry... We will either find our way out of this mess by embracing an uncompromising democratic socialism — one that will insist on massive government relief and work programs, the nationalization of electricity and gas companies, a universal, not-for-profit government health care program, the outlawing of hedge funds, a radical reduction of our bloated military budget and an end to imperial wars — or we will continue to be fleeced and impoverished by our bankrupt elite and shackled and chained by our surveillance state. [end]
