Make the Republican who wins earn conservative trust instead of letting him presume he has their vote.

Uh no. We’ve played that rigged game too long already.

The GOP is totally a waste of my time. I vote the candidate, not the party. If Sarah Palin runs and says she is a Republican, I'll vote for her. If she runs and says she is something else, I'll vote for her.

Other candidates? If they are true Conservatives in about 3 or 4 specific areas, I'll vote for them. If they fall short, they can do their best without me.

I owe the party nothing. The party owes me decent candidates.

Well, Utah TEA party gave us Mike Lee, Jason Chaffitz, Chriss Stewart, and God willing, will give us Mia Love. Grassroots, kickass.

I’m not really getting how this would/will/is work/ing.

The Tea Party got Rubio in, now he is stabbing us in the back.

I too thought for a long time that the way to do this is to “take over” the GOP. But here Erickson describes the party as a dead man walking, what good does taking over a dead body do you?

Maybe we CAN’T over come the moneyed interests, etc. that seem to exert a great deal of control over the GOP.

Maybe we DO need a third party, or 4th or 5th if you count other smaller parties that are out there.

All I can say for sure if that if the Rs push this amnesty thing past the goal line, and not only do such a bad policy move, but also hand Obama some Rose Garden victory (when really all he should be thinking about is Benghazi, the IRS, Fast & Furious, NSA); I will NEVER vote republican again.

I’ve called them and I’ve told them this, and if they think they are going to get 3 or 2 or even 1 Hispanic vote in exchange for mine, well then they really are the S.T.U.P.I.D. party.

I’ve sent money to The Senate Conservatives Fund, and candidates that it and Jim DeMint supported. One of them was Rubio. Look how that worked out for me.

What the GOP-e did with Murkowski in ‘10 was enough proof that they are utter and complete traitors to Democracy.

I wouldn’t expect that kind of %hit even out of New Orleans or Las Vegas.

I don’t much trust any of those groups above and let me note that the former President of Club For Growth which has its roots in Steve Forbes 1996 presidential campaign was none other than that Second Amendment ‘champion’ Senator Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania.

Why didn’t Erickson mention SARAHPAC by the way?

I would much rather put my money there than in the four groups he mentions or send money directly to the candidates which is my chosen method.

People vote for those who agree with our values and beliefs. The Republican Party keeps moving left which leaves conservatives no options. Their disdain of conservatives is SO obvious. The article said we act like a cheap date. It's worse than that. We give our vote to people who don't even leave money on the dresser. That makes us worse than democrats, at lease they get “stuff”. We end up with rinos we can't stand like romney and to add insult to injury, romney AND the gop cheat in the primary in several states. If a new party was started a constitution/conservative/freedom/...party became a reality, I think it would draw conservatives, independents and blue collar democrats who are scared of what Obama has done.

Please do not invite to the new party; rinos, Ann Coulter, Chris Christie, McConnell, Bohner, .....I know one thing for sure, if immigration goes through, the rnc is toast.

One other thing, I don't think Roberts was following the lefts orders on same sex marriage. I think he was giving the gop and their elitist big donors what they wanted. They knew they could not do it directly. The rnc wants to get these things off the table so it cannot be used against the right. They don't realize the evil the left could come up with to offer their constitutes. There are some sick people on the left.

I see things differently.

There already is a third party.

They completed the mitosis, but not yet the cytokinesis.

The division will continue, and the daughters will fight each other harder than the foreign body of Democrats.

Conservaives do not need to win 51% of an election. They only need a solid and predictable 5% -10%. Once established, the majority parties must consider the conservative positions in close elections.

Kasich has repeatedly been telling people that one day we’ll all stand before our Maker who will ask us what we have done for the least of these. Kasich will say he expanded government. I do not know about the rest of you, but I talk to Jesus every night and he has never told me to expand government to help others. Put bluntly: I could care less if the Democrats beat John Kasich in November. I could care less.

HEY ERIK, STAY THE F OUT OF OHIO POLITICS.

Kasich has reduced the cost of govt., produced job and economic growth in excess of the rest of the USA, and put through a sizeable income tax cut to boot while plugging a projected 8 billion deficit and running a surplus.

Kasich did take the bait on Medicaid where the federal govt. pays 100% of the cost for 3 years and then sticks Ohio with the bill after that. That is a pretty tough bribe to ignore and my guess is that Kasich is betting on an eventuall repeal of Obamacare and wants to take the money now .

Regarding Kasich and Ohio, You (Erickson) don't know jack.

Isn’t Norquist’s Club for Growth trying to stifle any criticism of Muslim immigration?

I think any group you contribute to had better be solid across the board, or you’ll fracture the party, and open the door to these opportunists trying to play one side against the other.

“In Florida, the GOP lined up behind Charlie Crist and went out of their way to push Marco Rubio out of the race”

GOP was right this time. Rubio was the tea party candidate supported by palin. Rubio is the one pushing this horrible country destroying Amnesty bill. Rubio is helping the democrats import 100 million 3rd world immigrants to turn the USA into a socialist state. crist couldn't have done what Rubio did who lent his “conservative” credentials to shill for Amnesty

Rubio you traitorous pos you helped the democrats destroy America and freedom

It’s a matter of resources folks. RINO hunting is fun but we lose credibility and punch. See all the Rino’s in the Senate? PICK ONE. We lose focus and are run over by the Karl Rove Corporate interests. Focus is the key. Who is the Worst Rino in this cycle? Graham? Lamar? Maybe McConnell isnt the best one to take out and Primary. Keep in mind, we will NEVER get a Ted Cruz in New England.
