Skip to comments.The gathering storm within the GOP

.............. Either the current, longstanding GOP establishment will finally cede control of the official banner of political conservatism, or the traditional two-party system, and with it the American republic, will dissolve.
Under present circumstances, this means that the truest voice of constitutional republicanism .... is being choked out in favor of the "go along to get along" model of political survivalism that has typified the Washington GOP for several decades.
This is where America's soul resides, all wishful thinking aside, after forty years on the present GOP establishment's watch. And in response to the laying of the last straw in this breaking of America's back, the GOP establishment has turned not against the left, but against the supposed extremism and instability of the Tea Party and its preferred electoral representatives. They are making an Ivy League plea for "sobriety," for avoiding "intemperate" characterizations of the left and its intentions, and for a stoic resignation in the face of national demise that masquerades as intransigent optimism. This in spite of the fact that it was precisely such GOP sobriety and temperance in 2008 that made possible the presidency of Barack Obama, with his well-creased Ivy League trousers.
And as the two-party system grants them the strategic advantage of a monopolistic hold on public conservatism, they can attempt to withstand the Tea Party threat to their privilege by challenging grassroots conservatives to a game of "king of the hill."
Somehow, the current establishment must either accept its failure and seek to make amends through radical change, or be pulled off that hill atop which it has too long presided.

Before reading I’ll say that the GOPe and conservatives are in a state of open war in Michigan with casualties taken on both sides.
Now to read
Great article. I will hold my nose to vote for Mittens RINOmney, and fully expect that it will be my last vote for a Republican (don’t even think I’d vote dim-bulb-crat).
I fully expect the vapid dork to be Obama lite, and will actively campaign no more for either major party. What’s it gonna take, folks, another civil war?
Right now, I’m beginning to think that CW-II may be the only solution.
I said that last time...and I meant it.

When both parties run abortionist/homosexualist statists, we have NO choice at all. It’s like a communist state one party election! Soros must be very pleased. Damn the statist parties!! Long live the grassroots conservative tea party rebellion!! Long live Liberty!!
I did a survey for the RNC, which happened to be asking for money, and was pretty clear in my opinion. Yes, Obama is human garbage, but I also don’t support non-conservatives. They also didn’t get a donation, not did I affix a stamp to “save” them money.
I wonder if I’ll get a response. Probably not as the questions are really only meant to let you feel good about spending your money. The opinion of conservatives aren’t valued.

Amen! And there is absolutely no way I’ll ever cast my vote for a man with a blatant abortionist/homosexualist statist record like Romney’s!! The bastard doesn’t even measure up to being a RINO!! He’s an out and out Democrat mole!! FUMR!! FUKR!! FUGOP-e!!
FU is freeper parlance for “freep you” (for those of you in Rio Linda).
Well stated bro.
From the article comes this designation: “survivalist Republicans” as the Republican establishment.
That is a great way to contrast them with “Constitutional Republicans.”
If... and that’s a BIG IF...my vote goes against BO and RINO ROMNEY somehow wins what will people like me do?
From day one if he so much as dips his pinky toe in the cesspool of socialism...of course he will...I will be beating on his butt like it’s a rented mule!
CUT THE REPLACE CRAP, REPEAL!
No honeymoon, no go along to get along you farking GOPe! Unless you go with the Tea Party, conservative, smaller government program YOU WILL LOSE IN 2014 AND 2016! It will go to the socialists!
AND YOU MIDDLE OF THE ROAD, MILQUETOAST, NO BALLS, TRAITORS WILL BE TO BLAME!
Unless you change your ways your only hope is that I am dead.
Rewarding the GOP-E's liberal candidates with victory has had dire consequences.
“.......Right now, Im beginning to think that CW-II may be the only solution.”
If we can’t reach enough of the Sheeple too busy grazing in the green of Fed largesse then I fear you are correct.
I totally agree. I am 68 years old and this will probably be the last time I vote GOP. I’m done with their BS of “get along” policy and hopefully the younger generation will wise up.
In four years I won’t give a crap. I fought the good fight until now and I’m just worn out. If the MF What’s in Charge (MFWIC) wins this election the country is done for.
Totally agree. I have given up on the republican party. It is about two steps removed from the dems.
