McCain viscerally hates conservatives and wants to provide his buddies the democrats with permananent voting majorities, just as he wanted to get democrats unlimited campaign funding while limiting republican campaign funding in his Campaign Finance Reform law. He went apoplectic when the Citizens United decision came down, gutting his signature legislation.

This is a slight unmeritable man,
Meet to be sent on errands: is it fit,
The three-fold world divided, he should stand
One of the three to share it?

They had better determine the country of origin of that measles outbreak in North Texas

The Wash Post states the carrier was from a country where the measles are common

The lack of outrage and curiosity is astounding

Not to mention the lack of investigation and quarantine

McCain is nowhere near any description of a constitution loving republican and he has managed to take Jeff Flake along with him on the ride to permanently castrating the Republican party. JMHO but I believe that McCain was wrapped up and sold on world socialism in the Hilton. He has brought his desire for one world government to Flake and convinced him also. His moves are not out of blindness but dedication.

Yup. He earned it. Most of the GOP has and should be labeled accordingly.

And to my fellow freepers insisting on defending the GOP and whining for more of this insanity from your heros, get the hell over it.

Boy! Politicians sure love to have these “National Conversations”, don’t they?

Here is an idea I bet many citizens would like:

Lets have a “National Conversation” about our laws and arrogant elected officials who ignore them, who violate their oaths of office and who violate the US Constitution.

Instead of whining and complaining about members of Free Republic, get in a reasoned conversation with them (how many are there 2, 3 that got your panties in a twist?) and put away your broadbrush.

Why didn't you ping those that you called out? Surely you have a list.

Because there are plenty.

Instead of complaining about me, why don’t you hold their feet to the fire, like they all said we had to do with pols and complain to them about their support of the party that empowers the McCains of the world to further gut conservatism?

Or are people backing our problem above reproach?

That is what I was telling you to do instead of just a generalized complaint.

Ping the ones that are supporters of the GOPe and engage them. Not me.

I've held the GOPe's feet so close to the fire I singed the hair on my hands. What are you doing?

Yep, the illegal invading criminal alien usurping colonists are not only bringing in diseases but also raping and murdering with no accountability.

Plus they are voting by the millions. That is why we have Obama, not to mention the voter fraud instigated by the dems, ACORN etc etc etc.

We have been put in this position. Most conservative in the primary, republican in the general. Problem is the media picks our candidates so a Sarah Palin, Herman Cain or even a Ted Cruz in 2016 won’t happen.

Instead we will get Christie. I can almost guarantee it. The media loves him. And they will continue loving him right up to the general. Then they will do to him what they did to McCain and Romney. “ Do you want a squish republican or a democrat with principles?”

Conservatives will vote local, the Marxists will cheat, the media will lie and please welcome Hillary Clinton as the next POTUS.

Sorry about your hair. most of us do what we can.

I have spent plenty of time arguing with people here on this issue. Individually and in groups. The problem persists. So since we seem to agree that Conservatives helping to empower our problem is bad, I’ll tell you what. Why don’t we help each other and conservatism bu holding them to account. How about we work to prevent them from spreading GOP propaganda and talking points, derailing progress toward conservative solutions and the rest?

Because if you read any random post on these subjects you will see talking points a plenty and the demand for more of the same mistakes we keep making. You have been around and you’ve seen it.

I do not see how we get rid/defang the McCains of the GOP when people keep insisting we keep voting for them. Am I wrong?

“Instead we will get Christie. I can almost guarantee it.”

Sure we will. And people will dutifully go right back to the polls and vote for him ‘because the dem is worse’ while ignoring the fact that the dem has the dame record.

And in 4 years, do it again when the GOP runs an even more lib.

Wondering all the while why the GOP runs liberals.

Because they are lazy. It’s easy to be a Squish. Believing in something takes effort and commitment.

Plus running a Squish brings in hundreds of millions of dollars every 4 years for the GOP. Who cares who is President as long as they get theirs.

True that is.

It just amazes me that so many people who supposedly consider themselves patriots and rock ribbed conservatives run out and vote for a guy that is the very embodiment of everything they hate...or clame to...then get offended like a lib when someone calls them on it. Over and over. And God help anyone trying to stop it. Several of us deal with that all the time.

I want to know how we are supposed to be a cohesive unit when we collectively insist on staying divided. It’s really that simple.

The Tea Party should act quick. All they need is a recording of this travesty, a small video camera, and a panel of critics of these two buffoons.

The “moderator” of the panel shows a brief segment from either McCain or Flake, then halts the recording, and gets ordered rebuttals from the critics. When done, the whole thing is posted to Live Leak (not YouTube, which would immediately take it down).

Whoever owns the copyright would immediately complain, so the rebuttal needs to go viral quickly so it can’t get shut down easily.

One of the forbidden websites called it a “live” event, but I could not find a live video feed.

I think they meant that people could comment as it was going on, but I could not find a comment area.

This is one of those events that someone has to somehow get a ticket (none were available to constituents or peons) and secretly video the event.

The sneaky back room “townhall” meetings should not be classified townhalls, that designation implies that people in the town can gather and discuss/question their representatives in government with no restrictions except for safety and security.

Now they can say they had a townhall meeting. What a sham.

FUJM and the Flake you rode in on

Same way that a self-proclaimed conservative like Rand Paul can loudly proclaim the need for cutting spending but cry if you go near the payments doctors like him get for Medicare patients.

Talk is cheap. Real convictions are tough.

Yup. Everyone wants their cake and wants it free, pain free and cooked just so.

There is no pain free in this deal. We are all going to feel it because we all contributed. I did voting for McCain to get Palin, others did voting this time for Mr. Severe Conservative.

Now we either face the music or lets all go watch cat videos.

Jeff Flake has been such a huge disappointment. Didn't he learn anything from his defeat in the governor's race against Janet Napalitino?

I had high hopes he'd be a stalwart like Mike Lee, not just another RINO squish.

No, Krispy Kreme is probably a staling horse for the real desire of the elites, Jebbie. People will be so glad to get rid of Krispy Kreme that they will accept Jebbie in a heartbeat so that Jebbie can lose to Hillary; after all, he is six years younger than Hillary. It’s Jebbie’s turn for the nomination, but Hillary’s for the presidency. The American people don’t know any better. And watch those Texans go for George P. too!!

Paul is a hypocrite.

If he doesn't like the payments, he's not required to accept Medicare. The free market in action.

But no. He wants taxpayers to subsidize his practice, all the while claiming to be a fiscal conservative. "Federal dollars for me, not for thee."
