Gingrich Warns of Conservative 3rd Party in 2012
Friday, April 3, 2009 8:53 AM
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich warns that conservatives could leave the GOP and form a third party in 2012 if Republicans dont do more to rein in government spending.
If the Republicans cant break out of being the right wing party of big government, then I think you would see a third party movement in 2012, Gingrich said during an address to students at the College of the Ozarks in Missouri.

The RINOs are the ones that need to exit the GOP. In fact, they left the GOP years ago. They just need to make it official.
You said — Vote out the entire Congress before were down the toilet bowl!
Ummm..., that’s you, me, Free Republic and “who else”? LOL..
In other words, it sounds great, but it will never happen....
You said — Those crusty old blue blooded, elitist, liberal dinosaurs are irrelevant elephants and are impeding the path that we need to take our nation.
Ummm..., you may be forgetting the plurality of almost 10 million more votes who voted in Obama. They might have to be “contended with” also... :-)
You said — Yeah that will work...NOT
Yeah, take my own gun and shoot my own foot... LOL...
Newt, you created a conservative second party in 1994. What did you do with it?
You said — As a lifelong conservative and a 40+ year Republican, I havent given up on the GOP yet.
Yep, and precisely the reason why this will result in the Democrats winning from now on.... (can someone say H. Ross Perot?).... LOL...
unfortunately, that mat be true...
IF he, were to disavow, running for WH...
he could help mightily.
All RATs and RINOs need to go!
He’s probably right, I’m done holding my nose. I admit defeat. There just aren’t enough of us strict-constructionists left.
And then what? Leave them where they are to continue running America into the ground? The hell with that. I will never again give the GOP so much as the sweat off my....
The newt lost all my respect when he sat on that settee with Plastic Pelousy and touted ‘global warming’!
Been working on local campaigns since 1988. That's where it all starts and if you try to skip over for the highest levels only -- you lose.
I remember when Senator Patty Murray was making her first run beyond (school board)? The local Republican party was not great shakes then, and look at the result...
The new conservative leader should outline the platform of a third (replacement for the second) party by specifying what it stands for! And that leader should outline what wrath is in store for those in the new ‘conservative’ party who do not follow that platform of ideas.
A 3rd party or a takeover of the GOP by a Conversative Group?
The leftist took over the Democratic Party!
It is no longer the party we used to work with! They used to have people that we can work with as sometimes they have a point! But no longer as they seems to be stone deaf to any proposals the GOP makes! And we have too many RINOS in the mix!
We may have to consider the 3rd Party if we can get enough support!
The RINO’s can just call themselves ‘LibDem’....as in the UK.
