The GOPe RINOS are starting to believe that grassroots tea party conservatives are their enemy
February 21, 2014 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 02/21/2014 10:26:21 PM PST by Jim Robinson

The GOPe RINOS and their enablers are starting to believe that grassroots tea party conservatives are their enemy. And they might even be right for a change.

So how are they going to combat that? Why, by moving even farther to the left, of course. Would never occur to these yahoos to even try to stand on principle and lock-in the grassroots conservative vote.

Our representatives are permanently out to lunch.

What do you think? Should we moderate our stance or soften our positions on abortion? Homo marriage? Gun control? Amnesty? Border security? National security? Commie health care? Big government? Big spending? Big taxes? Big debt? Cradle to grave nanny statism? Agenda 21?

How in the world are we going to appease the squishes and motor voter morons by standing on principle?

We can't.

Why bother?

Why even have an opposition party if they don't oppose the evil bastards?

Time to dump the tea into the RINO harbor.

Time for a tea party rebellion.

Need to wipe out the RINOs and their democrat brothers!!

Tea party landslide in November!!

Live free or die!!

Don't tread on me!!

The seek to marginalize the Tea Party, but I think they underestimate the seething passions percolating below the surface. This may be a landmark election. Either we dump the RINO, or we secede from the party. The die are cast.

Regrettably, the establishment GOP have not started here in this era. Mark Levin this evening recited a history of the establishment Republican Party’s reaction to Reagan’s campaigns for president, and it sounded exactly the same as what we are seeing today in the media, with the GOP-e of that era trashing Reagan in no uncertain terms as they are doing to Ted Cruz today. George Will emerged as one of the chief villains in the smear campaign.

I know this sounds funny, but we have a better chance working on low info voters no matter what they call themselves, helping us all stay together against tyranny, than we do paying any attention to the loser RINOs in office, who CLEARLY have agendas other than Constitutional government.

Money spent outside the party on ads and billboards showing EVERY AMERICAN OF ALL STRIPES what tyranny is, and how they fool us, and how we need to make the country free for EVERYONE.

Since GOPe probably think Hillary is a lock for 2016, maybe we can convince them that running Palin- Cruz will end the Tea Party.

The way I see it, opposition to the establishment (entrenched political class) should be an official political issue added to the list of traditional issues, so that candidates can state their position on it along with the others:

Mr. Candidate, what position do you take regarding:

opposition to the establishment
obamacare
national security
taxes
gay marriage
abortion
national debt

The GOP is supposed to be the Opposition Party, but they don’t want to oppose. What they forget is that voters demand an opposition and if they don’t get it from the GOP, they’ll find it elsewhere. There’s no room for Democrats in the GOP, they have their own party.

Fairly recently I joined facebook and including some old acquaintances I’m seeing a pretty broad range of views.

The funny thing is sometimes I see the same thing posted by my right wing friends and my left wing friends and it’s not always just doggies & kitties (although I admit it’s mostly doggies & kitties!)

I’m wondering if there is some common ground that we can find, even with lefties and certainly those in the middle.

The entrenchment/entitlement of our elected officials; NSA/spying/police brutality; government corruption and waste; crazy cr*p like shutting down lemonade stands and not letting people fly flags, these are some of the areas where I see across the board agreement.

The biggest problem right now, that I see, is the media. They are hurting us every single day, much more than the Dems are.

But I agree, the RINOs have to go....away.

When the left or the Republican party talk to or about the conservatives/tea party... they sound like they are talking to just a handful of people out here. I don’t think they have yet accepted the fact that we are in the millions. They think if they can marginalize the “few”, they can then garner the Independents. Not realizing that every day the obama administration does another unconstitutional act, and adds to the lies, there are more who turn against him. Every time the Repubs dis the conservatives, they are adding numbers to our ranks. I have come to the conclusion the repubs would rather have the dems in control than win an election via the Tea Party. We are foreigners. I think they have us pegged as poor, illiterate, and beneath them.
They need to get out more... they could learn about the United States of America and what its made up of. For, they do not know. They have all lost their way in Washington

Been getting a lot of mail from this group:

http://www.senateconservatives.com/

I see they’re trying to primary McConnell and Bonehead.

Of course there’s also SarahPAC, Tea Party Express and many others.

Maybe we can use conservative PACs like these to help prune some dead wood?

Not a penny to Rove’s PAC or the GOP!! Go with a pro-life conservative or tea party PAC or direct to the candidates.

There is.
I think we can find common ground on the subject of Justice — when I ask someone who's into "social justice" if it is just to steal someone's house and give it to someone else, they say "no" and will agree that "social justice" without [real] justice is just 'social' — if you ask them about the NSA's domestic spying they're on our side saying that is wrong — if you bring up the politically-motivated IRS targetings they'll agree that that is wrong.

When you bring up the police brutality, no-knock warrants, and all the rest that are resultant of militarizing the police you're more likely to get disagreement from conservatives* when you say this is wrong! than you are with a "leftie" or a "middle".

I think framing the debt in terms of Justice would be a winning move, too — point out that the public debt is guaranteed-by/with the taxes [which it is illegal not to pay] the government will collect in the future, that their endless debt-incurrance is literally selling you, your children, their children, grand-children, and great-great-grandchildren into slavery.


* Conservative as in wants to keep things the way they are.

They also think the "Tea Party organizations" created and control the Tea Party. They can't imagine that this is strictly a bottom-up operation...

Constitutional Conservatism is the enemy of the GOP-e because it represents the caboose of their gravy train. The RINO’s value keeping their jobs over doing their jobs. It’s the same people making the same horrible “compromises” over and over again. Invasive radical surgery to remove the RINO tumors from the body politic is the only chance for survival. Paging Doctors Cruz, Palin, Gomert et al. There will be blood.

Hardcore lefties want to destroy the republic, so no. The only way to get at the “pinko” types is to break through their false conceptions and show them how the hard left has fooled them.

As things look to me, the Founding Fathers had little to no common ground with royalists who were fine with George III flouting common law and acting like an absolute ruler.
