Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 Republican nominee for vice president responded to a Fox News Channel viewers Twitter question Saturday about the possibility of her and conservative talker Mark Levin abandoning the Republican Party and creating something called the Freedom 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...
With the utter contempt that much of the Republican party elites have shown the base in the past year, I think the time for a new party has come.
It might be the time to fight them from the outside, as you are suggesting ... we are not winning by being in the republican party. Sarah could take this nationwide and nationwide is where we would have to go. I’m in! Time to enter the Freedom Party.
I am a Conservative and was a republican, who lives in southern Arizona. After being betrayed by the likes of republicans that I just recently voted for - Brewer/Orr/McCain/Flake, I decided “No More” and changed my registration. In Arizona, the only choice was Independent, which really is unsatisfactory; but I did it anyway.
Now if Freedom Party becomes an alternative, I shall ride with Sarah.
The GOP was founded as a third party about seven years before the Civil War. How much worse does it have to get before a third party flies? They’ve tried unsuccessfully so many times.
Count me in. Wolverines!
I do not understand how anyone can see it as anything other than an effort to give away America.
Frankly; the platform of the Constitution Party lines right up with my ideology...a third party modeled closely after that platform with Governor Palin’s involvement could reel me right in. :-)
Well there would be if there was enough of us.
Sarah could take this nationwide and nationwide is where we would have to go.
Then there certainly would not be enough of us....for YEARS!
