About time.

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.

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.

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.

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

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!

What is it about Sarah Plain? To me, she's like a breath of fresh air. The stuff she talks about has REAL hope in it becasue it is about freedom because true hope is in liberty.

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.

I see no other alternative.

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.

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 might as well. I wasn't the biggest fan of Palin, but the GOP has given us nothing but RINO Presidential candidates since 1988, and lately they are hell-bent on selling Conservatives down the river.

When your party bends over and spreads for the liberals, it's time to find a new party. Especially when members of that party trash you and claim you are helping the Democrats if you don't support their liberal Republican candidates (all the while they are defending the party that is actually helping the Democrats destroy this country).

And the GOP was founded as a third party to provide an alternative.

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.

The Republicans are the moderate wing of the Democratic Party, and Fox News is the mouthpiece of the GOP elite. I don't think they will keep Sarah around if she breaks off and helps form a new party. They'll either try and force her to stay in the GOP, or they'll relegate her to a crappy timeslot.

Well, I left the Democrat party many years ago, because they went way too far left (Johnson) for me. And, now, I'll do the same, as the Republican party, the party of less left progressives than the democrat party, is leaving me.

"Freedom Party" sounds good to me!

My response to the idiots who claim a vote for anybody but the GOP is a vote for the Dems, is that a liberal with an (R) next to their name is still a liberal, and if I wanted to vote for a liberal, I'd join the party of jackasses and not worry about it.

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.
