Like many here, I am a political prognosticator. I followed Sarah Palin here for almost 2 years and told friends last May if McCain only chance is to pick Palin. So what does Sarah Palin's latest move mean?
New Party baby.
Why waste your time on the GOP that stabbed you in the back. What does she owe them? All the RINOS, Noonan, Bennett, Parker, Frum, Specter, and McCain etc that have thrown her overboard.
Visiting the Troops? How about 435+33 of them running as "Indies" in the 2010? Hey payback is a a you know what, and this women has been scorned. With GOP membership dropping some 27% from 38 to 28, how many disenfranchised Conservatives here would not dial the phones and go door to door until we are worn out to have a real CONSERVATIVE on any ticket. The way the GOP is going we aren't going to see that soon. My gut feel says she has something else up her sleeve like a new party, what say you....
Losing by 10 million votes, 7+ points, and more electoral votes than they carried proves you were wrong about her being McCain’s best shot.
We can hope. The republicans are spineless, and I see no benefit for her to run in a party that does not support her. If she forms a true conservative party, she could kill the republicans, and scare the **** out of the democrats.
I wouldn’t object.
Would have been worse by 13 million votes if he picked anyone else. He was that bad.....
CONSTITUTION Party, Sarah! You’re welcome aboard if you are sincere about governing accd. to the Original Intent of The Framers. I’d also be happy to see you join the Libertarian Party as well. The NeoCon GOP doesn’t deserve you & never did!
DO ya think Chairman Steele is reachin' for the Kaopectate as we speak? :-)...
But the theory that Sarah Palin could be competitive on a national stage was busted in November.
In the end, she didn’t help the ticket get even close.
I love to see her join the Libertarian party
It's either that we fix the GOP, or we get Obama for four more years, and Biden after that. That's the way it is.
She is the perfect person to start a second party that has a chance at winning.
What a wild week...first; Rush hints at a ‘secret project’ he’s working on; now this...
I am not going fix it. Some cars are not restorable and are nto even parts cars, just send them to the crusher. That is the way I feel about the GOP right now.
Yeah, the Democrats would be real scared by being the only party to hold power once their opposition splits itself in half...
She connects with real Americans, which apparently you fail to understand. Wonder why?
Secret project, I have not heard anything about this, when did he talk about this project, and maybe Sarah is involved in this project
So, what would be important for a new party of conservatives that could capture enough votes to become an actual replacement to one of the two existing parties? Here are my requirements:
1. Term limits. When politicians become lifers who are concerned about themselves more than their elected responsibilities, they become the same clowns we already have in office.
2. Fiscal responsibility. "Fiscal conservative" has been hijacked by lifer politicians and media types to mean "in favor of lower taxes". Fiscally responsible conservatives want to limit spending to expected tax revenues, and fiscally responsible liberals want to increase total tax revenues to meet desired spending levels. The two sides have to reach agreement and stop acting like the national debt is an imaginary number.
I'm sure everybody has their own version of what would be important to a new party. With the two things listed above, I can support a new party to replace the existing Republican party. Without them, a new party would just be more of the same.
My gut feel says she has something else up her sleeve like a new party, what say you....
Maybe she can go join up with that Keyes fellar and help him raise his new party to a percent or two.
