Santellie: "Where did we go off the rails?"

Damn good question.

And that "Simon" character is a creep.

Just my opinion of course.

Santelli appears to be a little nervous about the Blackhawks game tonight.

Boy do you have that right. He is another girly-man clone of Piers Morgan. I wish Great Britain would stop dumping their trash over here.

I’m proud of my Paisan. I wish he would go over to Fox Business.

Over a period of about 50 years we moved from a free market economy to a centrally planned one.

Thank you for pointing out that this is a problem long in the making. We were given two of the biggest gifts (the post-WWII period, where we were the world’s only economy of significance, and the post cold-war period, where 2/3 of the world’s population entered into the global economy) that any country could hope for, and we squandered it on naive theories and debt-fueled illusions of prosperity.

Conservatives need to come to grips that many of our “own” are at fault. It is also a global problem. All of this can’t be solved in a single election, it requires a fundamental change in how economies are perceived. We need a true leader.

Conservatives need to come to grips [with the reality] that many of who pretended to be our “own” are at fault. TALK'S CHEAP! Failure to ACT Conservative is how one self-defines as NOT Conservative, and Conservatives need to IGNORE more of what their Representatives and Senators SAY, and WATCH what they DO.

Conservatives need to understand that the country clubby cigars-and-cocktails Rockefeller wing of the GOP was NEVER in their camp, AND NEVER WILL BE. Not now; NOT EVER. They don't think like YOU do — HEll, they may not even like you — even if they CAN play golf, and share your taste in fine Scotch.

Conservatives need to GET OVER THEIR ERRANT TRYST WITH THE GOP; the GOP has certainly moved on.

While I agree wholeheartedly with everything that you said, I don’t see a solution anywhere in there. I am finished voting reflexively for Republicans, simply because many of them are as much of the problem as Democrats. It isn’t a question of “ideological purity” as many of the vote-GOP claim. It is a more practical matter. Voting for the GOP, as it is currently comprised, is a vote for the continued decay of the American economy and culture. The Democrats, and most of the Republicans, are leading us in the exact same direction.

So this leaves the obvious, as yet unanswered, question: what path remains to arrest this slide? Sometimes, wisdom dictates the recognition that there is no solution. That things will go the way they will, and the only recourse is to be ready when opportunity shows itself. I believe this is one of those times.

I will support fully any true conservative, and oppose fully any other. But I am under no illusion that this will do any good, barring a miraculous change in the psyche of the majority of the American people.

It’s down to picking individual candidates and supporting them directly; no good relying on Party apparatus to do any of the vetting for us, as they’ll only corrupt that process.

If so, he’s not today.
