A third party won’t fix the problem and if the tea party is not capable of taking over the GOP standing for the same language that is in the GOP platform, what makes you think it would be any more successful as a third party when the RINO’s would march with the rats?
As I said above in post 19, we are the minority and it is unlikely to change anytime soon. It’s not popular to say around here, but our view of America and the political preferences of our people do not reflect reality. The majority can now vote to steal from the minority and the majority is growing as the minority shrinks.
The Affordable Care Act (a massive new tax on working people) is now law. On top of that, the ACA is likely to suppress health care - a huge portion of our economy further reducing tax revenues. The rats are talking more about new taxes rather than cutting government spending and they continue to hand out more entitlements every day. Our monetary policy of borrowing from the Federal Reserve is growing and few understand the “tax” this represents to working people and future generations.
We are a nation held hostage by our poor via entitlements and the middle class even bought into the Ponzi scheme with social security. Amnesty will make this even worse. We now have schools providing free breakfast and lunch to poor students (almost all of them) in Texas!!!!!! Do you think they are going to readjust the families SNAP allowance every month to reflect 20 fewer meals? I don’t.
Sorry FRiend, but we are losing..... badly. I want Cruz and Company to succeed, but they can only thwart the will of the majority for so long - a majority of the GOP also by the way. Thinking that Cruz or any other conservative has the powers of persuasion to overcome our demographics is wishful thinking. Thinking they are somehow going to start a successful third party when the growing number of freeloaders work once every two years (vote) is not realistic.
I wish it were not so.
I don't think I've ever suggested that Ted Cruz could whup the Democrat left and the RINO establishment single handedly. But - it's a fact that he has terrified them all so badly, they're having a collective meltdown. That's power, and it's being wielded by a lone Senator.
Put half a dozen more like him in office, and the whole left will collapse.
Now, you can choose to wring your hands and give up the battle just as we're beginning to take back ground from the enemy, but I and most others here won't. I also won't agree to your assertion that "our view of America and the political preferences of our people do not reflect reality."
Just because the Dems have better field advantage at the moment, and there aren't tens of millions of us surrounding DC, doesn't mean that we're in the minority, or that the war is lost.
I don't, and I won't buy that. The day I do, is the day I hand in my Freeper card and quit posting here. It would be pointless to sit among these good patriots if I weren't with them in mind, body, and spirit. Should I ever lose the will to fight, I will remove myself from their honorable company.
As should any person who's resigned themselves to our defeat.
