If either Gun Control or Illegal Alien Amnesty passes the House.... not only I am done with the GOP....I will work to eliminate the party.
If you are really a conservative... its put up or shut up time
You see, the Hastert rule was put in place so that the moderates ruled the day, since the majority of the republican caucus in the Hastert years were still the old guard. Well about 30 of them either retired or were defeated in 2006 and then about another 30 retired or were defeated in 2008.
In 2010, about 60 members new members were elected, most of them conservative so a majority of the republican caucus in the House is now conservative. Ergo, out goes the Hastert rule.
It was an excuse that could be used to quiet conservatives “sorry, little Jimmy conservative, but your proposal doesn’t have the support of a majority of the caucus so...we just won’t be doing that.” but now it’s “sorry little Jimmy conservative but your ideas are crazy and we didn’t want to tell you so...so we’re going to do what we know to be right, which is moderate-liberal legislation, and we’re going to pass it with the help of the democrats”
Gee, what could go wrong!??
Boehner and Priebus are two of the biggest problems plaguing the GOP today. I'd list more names, but JimRob doesn't have that much bandwidth!
This afternoon I received a call from the Republican National Committee. The young lady started to tell me about the things that Obama was going to do. Just so happens I had just read the story about the 16 defectors involved in the gun bill so as she spoke I started saying their names, Alexander-Ayotte-Burr, she continued talking and telling me about how the Republicans were the only ones who could stop the madness, Chambliss-Coburn-Collins, she stopped talking and asked me what I was doing. I gave her an earful about the traitors that are so called Republicans and if they are the ones I would be supporting I did not want anything to do with this party. She was pretty bold and asked if I could just spare $35.00. I said yes and that I would write one a month to each of their primary opponents in the next year. She finally gave up.
They quit calling me.

Now THAT’s funny! LOL
Sounds like it’s past time to take Boner down.
Past time for that. Tethered are already other parties to go to but nobody does. Instead they just sit hear complaining and whining spinning little theories like their Boehner peso bear one. Truth is it is too late. The cultur3 is lost and when it is lost than it is impossible to take a nation back from the edge. The only question is how this will end. Will good people surrender, fight or run away. Those are the only viable options now. I say fighting is useless. Surrendering unacceptable. So leaving the country and finding a new place to start a free nation is the only realistic option in the long term. Just as our forefathers fled England so we must flee America for a “new world”. Is it somewhere in the western pacific or perhaps southern part of Africa? New Zealand’s farthest outreaches or the northern mountains of Thailand? It’s time to start thinking of which exit to use.
Not new nor a surprise. VAWA
is this week it finally enough for republicans? do you finally get that there is one party in d.c. and you as a conservative aren’t represented?
The Franklin Cover Up involved both sides of the aisle.
No reason to believe blackmail hasn’t continued in some form or another.
“.......I say fighting is useless.....Its time to start thinking of which exit to use.”
As for me, I think the country of my birth is worth fighting for. So I’ll continue to do that even if I find myself in the midst of defeatists.
I guess you missed the Heaven’s Gate Hale-Bopp express the last time it picked up passengers.
Apparently, most of the “Republican” “lawmakers” would rather have a Democrat House than to dump Boehner; they don’t want to offend the critical state of OH, I guess.
He really needs to go the the local Sporting Goods store for a case of BALLS ‘cause he ain’t got any!
John Boehner says: “For that matter, who needs a Republican Majority in the House at all?”
Who would’ve thought we’d all miss Speaker Hastert. But I sure as hell do.
Agreed. He acts like such a loser. He sounds smart just wimps out all the time and let’s the country get screwed. But he’s in the spot where he could do a lot of good if hed only go shopping as you suggest. Hero Boehner!
Thank you for posting this — It makes me angry, but not at you.
How in the world did this demonically controlled person become “leader” of the Republicans??
I have been saying this for a while, IT’S TIME TO BLAST THIS FROM THE ROOFTOPS (and tell everyone you know): John Boehner IS the “Neville Chamberlain” of modern American politics!!
If the evil statists of both parties succeed in destroying our Republic, then I pray every single one of them are hunted down, put in chains and put on trial for high treason against our beloved Constitution.
