Welcome to the USSA.
Shut up and be a good comrade if you know what’s good for you!
The “illegal” President is now running an “illegal” presidency
Anyone who voted for Hussein in 2012 deserves America's contempt.
Both sides were in cahoots. The republican party did literally everything possible to make the worst possible and the most moderate-liberal candidate the republican nominee. Any and all challengers were destroyed while their candidate was buoyed and supported. Conservatism was being attached from both sides so that the welfare state could live on. Both at the national and local levels, Tea Party supported candidates were prevented from getting nominations. No surprise that there were a slew of defeats in senate elections across the country.
The democrat party doesn’t like the Tea Party and neither does the republican party. They id what ever was necessary to water down that anti-incumbent, anti-government fervor. John Boehner’s committee appointments and Mitch McConnell’s continuous treachery are examples of this.
And today, here in Massachusetts, John McCain is working to get another worthless moderate republican elected to the senate.
Circular firing squads tend to self-destruct
Add in the total idiocy of the legitimate rape morons and the Romney weenie and you have a sure loss.
All throughout I was puzzled by the absence of any hard-hitting third party issue ads in the wake of the Citizens United decision.
Now we know why.
Protest Obamas IRS at your local IRS Office or Post Office at Noon, May 21.
Gadsden Flags are optional.
Details on Michelle Malkins blog.
Romney was the reason we lost last time. McCain the time before that.
Sure Obama was in the right place, at the right time, but face it we ran terrible candidates both times.
What we need is strong candidates. Not Obama-bashing.
Palin / Cruz would be a good start.
Many from right here on FR.
The loss by Romney was explained (even by conservatives) as the failure by Romney’s team basically to get out the vote.
If harrassment and targeting by the IRS to Tea Party groups
to endlessly thwart them from the non-profit status they were seeking to streamline their fundraising and make them the “force” they had every right to assume they’d be in the election, then why did it take so long for them to make an issue of it? I’m not saying it wasn’t a factor, maybe even a big one, but if it was decisive, it looks like it’s become the most painful lesson this neophyte new force in American Politics has yet had to learn. They seemed a little slow on the uptake on this issue to have only brought it out now,or have it brought out on their behalf, this long after the election. What is ALWAYS SAID about the Tea Party is that it is no one monolithic or particularly well-organized group, but hundreds of regional groupings with the same basic philosophy, but different emphases on strategy and style. As one who has been in it from the beginning, I know that’s true. Looking for answers now for what happened in the last election, that very fact may offer a key as to how and why the Tea Party nationally was neutered-—they simply didn’t know this was happening to dozens, maybe hundreds, of
those applying for the non-profit status, but just them alone. OR, they knew it was wider than just them, but didn’t know how to organize and join with all others , make a lot of noise approaching the election, and scream “We’re not being allowed to raise money the way everyone else is!”
This article is needs to be investigated. Obama lost 4.5 million votes in 2012 compared to 2008. Romney secured 1 million more votes than McCain. However, the 2010 mid-term were historical numbers. The GOP received 2.5 million more votes than the Democrats received in 2006. Romney only got 16 million more votes than the GOP 2010 congress, but Obama got 28 million more than the Democrats.
Is this Fraud or RICO ???
People are now afraid of being identified with being Republicans.
Republicans are more likely than Democrats to be audited. More likely to have the press assume they’re ‘the terrorists’ when a bomb goes off - even when it’s always a radical Muslim...
More likely to be represented badly by Hollywood...
If Republicans leaders can’t defend us, they’re finished. Why should we vote for people who wave the white flag when bullies hurt us?
I’ll bet a lot of people are now afraid of being identified with being Republican. Republicans are more likely than Democrats to be audited. More likely to have press assume they’re ‘the terrorists’ when a bomb goes off - even when it’s always a radical Muslim...
If Republicans can’t defend us, they’re finished. Why should we vote for people who wave the white flag before making any effort?
If they can’t defend their base, they can’t defend the country either.
Doesn’t bode well for our side - if folks are able to be so handily squelched, they have won and it’s only going to get worse. Even SCOTUS is loath to upset the apple cart and nobody is willing to “put the country through the agony of a real government shakeup”. Without using the strongarm tactics of the Left, we are doomed to continue the slide towards tyranny. Lots of folks talk, but getting the gumption to take real action is problematic.
The outcome of the 2012 election is much more complex than just one issue. At the top of the list was an uninspiring GOP Presidental candidate who’s GOTV effort imploded in spectacular fashion (everyone remembers ORCA, right?)
That having been said, I’m sure that the IRS intimidation contributed, somewhat. And would have made a difference had the election been exceptionally close. It probably did impact the outcome of a couple Senate and a few House races.
The biggest impact tho was the suppression of knowlege of the targeting. Had that come out and hit the press in late September or early October I
have no doubt Romney would be President.
Right now the emphasis should be on defining and documenting the scope of the impact. I hope that Conservative groups’ lawyers are out there now gathering affidavits on ALL scenarios where the IRS targeting had an impact on the formation and operations of Conservative groups.
If that caused anyone to not vote, they wouldn’t have voted to begin with...I don’t know anyone that would let that stop them from going to the polls to vote....
