Richard Viguerie: Ted Cruz's Victory Foretells Conservative Takeover of GOP
Sacbee.com ^ | 7-31-2012 | Richard Viguerie

Posted on 08/01/2012 8:13:30 AM PDT by tennmountainman

"The victory of Ted Cruz in the Texas Republican Senate runoff primary means that the torch is being passed to a new generation of principled small government constitutional conservatives and that the 'let's make a deal' Republican Party of old will soon go the way of the Dodo bird.

"Ted's nomination sent a strong signal that a new conservative Republican Party is being born and, by 2016, principled conservatives will replace most leaders in Congress and the Party at the national, state, and local levels. GOP leaders should 'ask not for whom the bell tolls -- it tolls for thee.'

I believe Dewhurst was a bit complacent and took his insider status for granted and dropped the ball big time.

I offered up an extra thank you to God this morning when I read this news. God really is in charge.

I, for one here in Georgia, will work diligently to primary our three major GOPe politicians: Deal (governor), Chambliss (senator), and Isakson (senator). We don’t need quisling appeasing politicians like this in our government.

It also sends a chilling message to Barack Hussein Obama and his entire Democrat “traitor” Party, coupled with the recent governor Scott Walker victory in Wisconsin, that Obama & his destroy America, Democrat Party is going suffer a devastating, embarrasing, crushing defeat come November 6, 2012.

Folks, disregard the MSM polls, they mean nothing and in reality are nothing but lies and distortions. Obama & Democrats are in free fall!!!

I'm not ready to characterize the TEA Party as conservative, yet. They are more libertarian and solely fiscal-issue centric, an libertarianism is NOT strictly conservatism.

Not to say that conservatives can't identify with the TP.

I thought Deal was pretty good? Or was that just an unfair comparison to the Dem?

The media are in full panic mode, trying to sell Obama any way they can. I had to chuckle yesterday at ABC's breathless report on certain provisions of Obamacare which are kicking in today - one being a rebate from insurance companies.

I got my check last week - .33 cents. No kidding.

Words to chill the hearts of the Go-Along-Get-Along GOP: “The TEA Partier are coming!”

And the very best time for the TEA Party to dump the dinosaurs is in the primaries. Get interested and get going in preparation for the next primary cycle in ‘14.

Nathan was my Congressman for years. What’d he do when he was elected Governor? Of course, the Georgia 400 Toll Road was nearing the end of its widely promised removal of tolls once the original debt had been retired. What’d he do? He started ogling over the revenue and offered up some excuse for more projects that could be funded. He caught hell for it...what’d he do? Of course, he dropped the tolls for a week and said, “we honored the promise.” Goddam bastard!

What’d he do next? Well, he issued some vague statement “we’d phase out the GA 400 tolls” (as an enticement for the TSPLOST)... Next, he partnered up with Mayor Kasseem Reed (I don’t care if I spelled it correctly) on trying to screw Georgians out of more of their money for a bunch of BS government/contractor/thief get-wells with a transportation SPLOST (which lost yesterday)....

He partnered up with a lying no good mayor who can’t even explain why his secret-partner contractor charged $1.2M for clearing some intersections during Atlanta’s last snow ‘storm’ (hardly)....an amount 3-5 times what the ENTIRE state of Georgia paid for similar efforts outside Atlanta......screw Nathan...I’m gonna give his GOP opponent, if there is one, the maximum for all my family members.

Complacent??? I saw his campaign as desperate.

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/07/ted-cruz-wins-in-texas-gop-senate-runoff/

Dewhurst poured $11 million of his own personal fortune- he founded a successful energy company called Falcon Seaboard- into his campaign, spending a total of $19 million, as compared to Cruz’s $7 million spent.

I gladly voted for Cruz yesterday. I’m so glad that in November, we will end KBH’s Senate career.

IT is a breath of fresh air to see Cruz win the runoff against a RINO that was so heavily supported by the Repub establishment! I hope and pray that his victory really DOES hint of a major Conservative movement both in the GOP and this nation!

Talk about PollyAnna Utopianism... America cannot decide whether it was to be Queer, democrat or socialist..

compassionate, full of tough love or arrogant..

diversified, american or one worldly...

BUT judged correctly it totally depends on the WEEK..
America is so ridden with propaganda and agitprop the
attitudes of most americas are like a drunk with
Tourettes... reading Newsweek like a bible..

I hope more and more CONSERVATIVE thinking politically alert, like Freepers continue to do the heavy lifting.

I still maintain - we need to boot our more of the boo hoo Boehners, Lugars and McConnell types and continue to send this same strong message to ALL the RINOS. I’m sick of PC everything. PC is only a way to “reach across the isle and give up all backbone”. Dems NEVER do this. Why should we?

THANK you Texas for these results and from this proud Wisconsin Conservative - I’d say - keep the faith, keep up the great work and NO.... the T.E.A. Party is NOT dead.
