Whence goeth she? I mighteth follow.
Let’s get this party started!
The GOP gave conservatives 8 years of backstabbing
under Rove and Romney who imposed gay marriage without
a vote AND then delivered ObamaCARE/RomneyCARE —
and then lied about both.
The GOP HATES conservatives and America
and weaponizes al Qaeda when it is not ignoring
full bore treason.
I mean, if Paul Ryan has turned coat, what else can we do?
In before the PDS’ers.
The GOP itself was founded as a Third’ Party. I’m ready! :)
Wherever she leads, I’m willing to consider following.
The GOP thinks that they are entitled to my vote.
They have treated me and my fellow conservatives like battered wives for 24 years and 5 months now. They are sure that we have nowhere else to go.
Obama has a plan for America.
America has a plan for Sarah Palin.
Time for the GOP to join the Whigs on the ashheap of history.
Sounds good to me.I no longer consider myself a republican.
Already did with the Roberts vote on Obamauncare.
Ha ha, let Mitch and the Bonehead put this one in their pipes and smoke it. Rebellion is brewing... Better to die on our feet than live on our knees waiting for beltway pigs like Ryan & Rubio to throw us some crumbs.
I basically left all parties years ago...
I’d back just about anything that tweaked Rove’s nose right about now.
I am SO tired of being railroaded into the next guy and the next...
I happen to think there are a lot of citizens who since long ago have had enough. If the new party showed any signs of life, I would join in a heartbeat.
The Republican party has done everything it can to drive me away. They haven’t gone to the lengths of nullifying my registration, but they just might as well have. I can no longer vote for who they nominate.
The Republican Party deserves to die.
NOW! The big question... the new party... who runs it?
If it’s going to be run by a bunch RINO ass-scratchers that will turn it into another wing of the Democrat Party, then count me out.
That’s why I am so damned hard on our own these days. People need to get with the program, or get lost.
We have to be very careful not to allow a new party to be sidetracked, gamed, and become the mirror image of the Republican party.
Carl Rove? Bill Krystal? The Bushes? Bob Dull? Mitt Romney? John McCain? Lindsey Graham? Marco Rubio? Snow?
Folks, great idea... if your sound principles it will be loyal to.
Just say the word, dear Sarah!
Yep. We’re ready and waiting!
I’m in. Freedom Party.
Lord, hear our prayer.
If the GOP wants to become Dem-Lite I have no problem leaving the GOP. I stick by my principles first..and for those who say “A third party means that the Dems will win” well voting for the GOP if they want to become a mirror image of the Dem party, whats the point..Id rather vote for a party that agrees with MY beliefs instead of one who wants to out-Commie the left
Whence goeth she I WILL follow.
Right behind you, Sarah.
My God, the woman has been on fire as of late. She’s back and charged up and even if Roger can barely bring himself to put her on air, she’s going to make the most of it—while of course also getting paid by Fox.
It’s late in the immigration fight, but having the governor fighting so forcefully is probably the best hope we have now. She’s pulling out all the artillery, too: threatening 2014 primary fights and even hinting of a possible third party.
Go, Sarah, go!
Hope, in the political arena, has become a tarnished word becasue of it use by the demagogues. The collectivists take every meaningful word and concept and twist it to turn the truth into a lie.
I’ve said she will run as an independent - and considered doing it in the last election...
According to Martin Armstrong we have entered a cycle of independent ascension in worldwide politics.
Palin is the only person who could establish a viable third party that would win seats the very first election.
The GOPe could be the third party in a matter of two or three national elections.
And I have no problem with calling it the T.E.A. Party.
She should leave the GOP. The GOP sells out it’s base at the drop
of a dime to appeal to Independents and special interest groups.
Divine providence, we beseech thee to strengthen
the heart of your willing servent Sarah Palin and
all who would see this nation of freedom not perish.
I like the sound of that, Freedom Party!
Sticking with the Republican Party gets me zero, zilch, nada. And I am not one to elevate Palin to a saintly cult status. I am pragmatic enough to know that no politician represents me perfectly. I am just sick of the establishment ignoring traditional American values.
there are no “good moves” left. conservatism cannot survive in the republican party. the GOP elite learned the lesson of Reagan too well. we need a person around whom to coalesce.
I’m thinking I’ll leave too.
How many people would in fact leave the Republican party? We already have a lot of splinter parties; i.e. the Greens, Libertarians, Constitutional Party, Natural Law party etc. etc. Would we become yet another splinter party?
Well considering the Republican party no longer exists, I say go for it. We have a RINO party, but a Republican party? Please. She would be leaving the Democrat-lite party, no skin off her nose.
Interesting discussion here. Let’s see if we can kill the immigration bill first, then on to step two. If that bill gets through the House in any way fashion or form, it won’t matter if we have ten other parties, we’ll always be a minority in a third world country.
Jim ... want to say something profound but the words fail me. It may take Sarah leaving though to finally be able to tell the truth about both side of the aisle. Sarah does have a habit of telling the truth though there have been some areas Sarah has not gone because she does belong to the Republican Party. Maybe leaving is the only way to shake the system to its core and the system does need shaking to the core.
"Freedom Party" sounds good to me!
A lot of us have. I am conservative, and a patriot, not a Republican. Republican is just where we used to hang out till they made us unwelcome.
I want to see just how far from the Go-Pees it will be.
Because it needs to be a l o o o o o n g way away.
And the terminology “Freedom” had better mean just that, real freedom.
Not the pseudo-freedom of probably no one in the fed-gov will bother you much crap.
We could start with a bit of cost savings that would have the added bonus effect of defunding the ability of employees of the following agencies to have their noses in American Citizens business 24-7.
How about some “across the board” EPA cuts?
Perhaps some “across the board” TSA cuts?
“Across the board” EEOC cuts?
“Across the board” BATFEces cuts?
“Across the board” Department of Agriculture cuts?
Department of Education?
Department of Health and Human Services?
Department of Housing and Urban Development?
Department of Labor?
African Development Foundation?
Federal Reserve System?
National Railroad Passenger Corporation?
Then we could go flat tax and eliminate THAT problem quite easily.
NSA? A bit trickier but if the above were carried out with swift and resolute action the paycheck hos in NSA would be much easer to work with.
There would be MUCH more but I would like to see some real platform items, not some rehashed crap.
With Governor Palin at the top of the leadership chain I would be confident that I will see blood and fir flying in the air.
I’m wont vote for liberals no matter if the have a R or a D behind their names. I’ll only vote for Conservatives and if they only run Conservatives they would have my vote..
...the party of slightly less left progressives than the democrat party...
