Screw a brokered convention when ANOTHER moderate can be foised upon us! You talk about rebellion-there would be SO much rebellion that it would threatend to split or destroy the Republican Party if this happened: GUARANTEED!

Let's remember what a great man said.

"Establishment Republicans" Want to Redefine the Term "Conservative"


"Establishment Republicans" are Lying to Us With Threats of a Dire Default

Let's remember:
Someone on another thread said But with the press not doing its job, and the LAME Stream Media trying to silence speech they don't agree with,
we're in a real mess and under attack by an evil force rarely seen in this country.
The Republicans and the God-Given freedoms this country has enjoyed so far, are descending into oblivion.
And the "Establishment Republicans" aren't doing a damned thing to stop it.
The "Establishment Republicans" aren't providing "the boots on the ground" to win.
They're trying to put the public back to sleep, lying to them, in order to keep their power, and "wreck the country as it commits suicide".
So now the "Establishment Republicans" have "fractured their base" and,
because they have taught us "that accepting short-term loss in exchange for long-term gain is the essence of compromise, the essence of politics",
they're going to lose, and lose big, if they don't swing to the hard right wing of what used to be their party.
How many conservatives have re-registered as "Conservative Party" or "Independent" because they're fed up with being lied to?
We've been "treated to one lecture after the other on the need for “compromise” and “patience” ", and we're sick of it.
We don't trust them any longer.

Look, Rush said it best....
So now, because of the Establishment Republicans" there's not just a candle lit, but a bonfire lit ...
in the very heart of the conservatives, and it will burn away the dead wood that is "Establishment Republicans."

Yes, it's time to curse the "Establishment Republicans" for every thing they've NOT DONE!
And CURSE THEM for most of the things they HAVE DONE!

"Attack, repeat, ATTACK!"

And they talked about it on Scarborough's show today on PMSNBC.

I heard this. My immediate reaction: Scarborough????. Our new trusted source?

Have we heard this meme-candidate anywhere else? Or is it just Scarborough stirring the soup based on a few conservations over drinks with nervous Romney-bots?

These are the same morons who demanded Reagan take George H.W. Bush as his running mate at the 1980 GOP convention. A decision that has hurt the party for three decades.

You can be damn sure their “solution” will involve a Jeb Bush nomination or something else equally stupid.

"Establishment Republicans" wouldn't care.
If they can't be in power, they don't want US in power.
It's just that simple.
It's WAR!

"Establishment Republicans" Want to Redefine the Term "Conservative"
DO CONSERVATIVES "ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICANS" WANT TO WIN IN 2012 OR NOT?

Palin was my first choice, but she dropped out.
Bachmann became my first choice,and she dropped out.
Cain was my second choice, but he dropped our.
Now ... Newt was my second choice, but he challenged Rush.
So now ... Rick Santorum, who use to be my third choice, is now my first choice.

But Romney, Perry, Ron Paul, Huntsman, and Johnson are NOT acceptable,
and if on the ballot for the general election for President or V.P., would cause me to do a write in.


There's no way in hell I can compromise my values.

Jack Kerwick wrote an article on May 24, 2011 titled The Tea Partier versus The Republican and he expressed some important issues that I agree with.



I'm fresh out of "patience", and I'm not in the mood for "compromise".
"COMPROMISE" to me is a dirty word.
Let the RINO's compromise their values, with the conservatives, for a change.

The "Establishment Republicans" can go to hell!

The only thing good about even the prospect of a brokered convention is that the present candidates have pretty well destroyed each other for Obozo in the Fall. Can you imagine what it would do to the psyche of this nation if out of the GOP Convention came a young, fresh face (hopefully with a Conservative brain) and flushed down the toilet all the crap we’ve had with the present, and past, GOP candidates for the past year? Someone like Bobby Jindal of LA or the young Congressman Joe Walsh of Illinois, or New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez........ America would sigh a sigh of relief and probably go viral for that candidate.

Am I right or wrong? Anybody?

Anyone surprised by this is not really paying attention. The GOP elites will do what ever is necessary to get Mitt nominated.

I really don’t understand why since Mitt has zero chance of beating nobama.

Unless, of course, the GOP elites secretly want another four years of nobama destroying our country.

They trashed Sarah, they scared off Herman, they are currently working, without much success fortunately, on Newt.

Newt must become unstoppable.

Nobody knows those folks ~ but here's a thought for you ~ Illinois somehow borrowed $5 billion this last year and presumably that would cover payment of the $4.5 billion in unpaid bills lying about.

Did not happen.

Now they have $8.5 billion in unpaid bills.

To put it loosely, somebody in Illinois politics STOLE $5 billion.

Now who might that have been? Was it the Governor?

He'd be the 7th Governor of Illinois in a row to end up involved in crime.

Maybe it was the corrupt Democrat machine that surrounds the governor and occupies all the top spots in the state bureaucracy. Those are the folks who brought Obama to the top. Did they steal for Obama? Does he have the $5 billion?

There are things cooking in Illinois that may well bring down the Obama regime before mid-summer.

Stay tuned. Theft in Illinois government is always a problem, but this would be the biggest theft in their history. It's big by even California standards.

Stay tuned.

One thing that may shake up the Republicans is the State of the Union speech which will be Tuesday evening.

If Obama gets a significant bump, any Republican could be in trouble, because the MSM/Dems still have months to improve and remake Obama into Obama ver 2.0. Incumbency is difficult to defeat.

A significant Obama bump with the voter dissatisfaction with the dwindling field of opposition contenders does will not bode well for the GOP in November. Are they willing to settle for another Obama term and hope to retain the House and gain the Senate? At the rate Obama is issuing Executive Orders and McConnell/Boehner are folding, Obama has already shown he can circumvent the legislative mechanism.

I fear a brokered convention is Elite code for let's nominate Jeb. That would be another sure loser. Obama has run against Bush since 2007 and having another Bush to run against would be every better than having Mitt I never had a position I couldn't change Romney or Newt trainload of Samsonite Gingrich.

It’s a nice dream (and one I share, since I don’t really think any of our candidates are acceptable), but it would leave us with a candidate who hasn’t been properly vetted. Whoever it is, The Enemy would find SOMETHING (”In Eighth Grade, Candidate X accidently ran the cat over with the lawnmower!”)to immediately spin that into a Palin-like “Candidate X has been destroyed,” backing it up with quotes from (liberal) polls. And then we’d lose.

I agree - somewhat. America wouldn't sigh a sigh of relief, but genuine informed patriots would. That is the problem, the MSM information machine (contrary to popular notions around here) is not dead. It is alive, well and informing your neighbor as we speak. It is also shaping a myriad of idiots that also consider themselves to be erstwhile Conservatives in their political views.

FWIW, I pretty much agree with the tea party poster above that puts the proposition thus: a loss isn't a bad thing if it clarifies things in the end. For me, now, I have decided that it is the ideals that matter. If some fool tells me he has found his inner core (all these idiots do - including Fig(leaf) Newton) then welcome to the club - but you're hardly an able leader if you just began to figure things out. Not only that, but your track record up until this election is essentially deceit and accommodation - not acceptable.

Yes, I will agree that there is no perfect candidate just as there is no perfect person. However, if you're of a seasoned age and cannot tell a liar from a truth teller in the relationships you're in, you're a hapless fool and only doomed to continue being unable to divine truth from fiction.

An open leader, with the overall direction of duty to the Constitution, would, indeed, electrify the alienated among us; and make no mistake, true Americans ARE alienated. It is because we are now a minority in a drugged and propagandized socialist state that we cannot understand why things are the way they are (why can't Austria be what she was in 1930?). When that simple truth is grasped, our true perspective - and challenges - become clear.

“Screw a brokered convention when ANOTHER moderate can be foised upon us! “

Anything can happen in a brokered convention, but it won’t happen without organization.

There is great danger in putting all the conservative eggs in the Newt basket - especially when he has turned on conservatism many times before.

Neither Newt or Romney are right for conservatism.

Conservatives have been short-changed in this primary cycle, and conservatives are not ready for the possibility of a brokered convention, and should be.

I don't normally listen to Rush because I only hear him when I'm driving, and I'm never driving when he's on. But last week, I was traveling for business, and I was able to listen to him during some of my road hours.

BITE ME RUSH.

I happened to catch his show the two days when he was bashing Newt and Perry for their statements on Bain Capital, and it became clear he was pimping Romney.

Made me sick to listen to.

Sorry Rush, you lost me at Mittens.

I don’t think a brokered convention is possible under the rules in effect since about 1972. Nobody controls delegates, and they are free to vote however they want after a cettain number of ballots have resulted in no nomination.

Under the old rules, and I’m old enough to remember them, primaries counted for very few delegates, and state party bosses selected most of the delegates. I think that still happens, but not as much.

Governors would run as “favorite son” candidates, which gave them control of all their state delegates. In states where the governor belonged to the other party, I’m not sure but I think it was the state party bosses who selected the delegates. After a long, drawn-out process placing all the candidates in nomination, the charade of voting was carried out. Most of the time it was decided in back room deals before a single vote was officially cast.

I can’t see that happening. I think the delegates would not go along with it.

Absolutely wrong. Alan Keyes was a political stunt - a JOKE here in Illinois.

If the Republican Party had simply STAYED BEHIND Jack Ryan in the first place, Obama would've never been elected to the US Senate, and never gotten out of the Illinois State Legislature where he did nothing but vote "Present" on everything.

Imagine, the Democrat Party making a scandal out of a married man, Jack Ryan, having sex with his own wife. OMG, THE HORROR!!!!!

That's *exactly* what happened, despite the trumped up hype around he and his wife going to (gasp!) a sex club. The complete lack of backbone displayed by the Illinois Republican Party is exactly the reason why we have this worthless piece of crap, George-Soros-Sock-Monkey Obama in the White House.

To deny these FACTS is to deny reality.

You make good points but the "brokered" candidate would have four (4) months to become well-known to the American people. Most Americans are not following the Primaries and this Election right now. Most Americans will not start paying attention until September and beyond. Everybody is not the political junkies that we FReepers are. I guarantee you that if you stood outside Wal-Mart today and asked 100 people: "Who is Rick Santorum?" or "Who is Newt Gingrich?" or "Who is Mitt Romney?" It would amaze you the number of people who would not have a friggin' clue.

I agree. I blame Obama on Seven of Nine.

Not quite. Not sure if you remember, but the divorce records were SEALED, neither Jack or Geri wanted them opened.

David Axelrod and his operatives (using the Chicago newspapers as their useful idiots) managed to get a CALIFORNIA judge to unseal the divorce records so the Obama Campaign could make them public.

Imagine, a court-ordered SEALED divorce record magically being opened by a CALIFORNIA judge. A DEMOCRAT California judge at that.

Now, look what's going on, on the national stage. Accusations against Santorum's wife; Gingrich's wife suddenly goes public; wild accusations about Gingrich's ethics case in the House (where Gingrich was exonerated, and the report is on Thomas); and finally the dust up around Romney's financial records and SOMEONE finding private, Cayman Island bank accounts.

We've seen this act here in Illinois before. This has David Axelrod's and Barack Hussein Obama's fingerprints all over it.

It's incredibly important for EVERYONE on this forum to KNOW and REMEMBER that up until his White House run, Barack Hussein Obama has NEVER won a contested (I should say "legitimately contested") political race.

The modus operandi for Obama/Axelrod is to CLEAR THE FIELD of all opposition for Obama.

We've seen first hand here in Illinois what "clearing the field" means. Obama/Axelrod are up to it once again.

DO NOT let this happen on the national stage this election cycle.

I keep repeating that Rinos do not mind being the permanent minority of the one-party international socialist camp. They did it for forty years until people like Reagan and Newt came along and turned their world up-side down.

Their only political enemy is conservatives. They have stood by while the Department of Homland inSecurity has classified conservatives as domestic terrorists. They attack only conservatives - never liberals - their friends across the aisle.

Imagine, the Democrat Party making a scandal out of a married man, Jack Ryan, having sex with his own wife.
On, BTW, nice twist there. The problem wasn't with him "having sex with his own wife", it was him having sex with his own wife in an open and public setting.

And to use your own words...To deny these FACTS is to deny reality.
