Anti-EU Parties Soar in "Political Earthquake" Elections
The New American
26 May 2014
With European Union bosses working overtime to finish crushing what remains of national sovereignty and self-government in Europe, the public across much of the bloc appears to have had enough. In elections to the European Parliament not a true legislative body in the traditionally understood sense of the word, but the only elected outfit in Brussels nonetheless political parties opposed to the ongoing EU takeover made massive gains. Meanwhile, in another troubling omen for the super-state and its proponents, less than 45 percent of eligible voters actually cast a ballot in elections held over the last several days.
They are also anti-capitalist and anti-immigration. It’s like it’s an odd group of liberal xenophobes.
These are odd times.
He says his computer models identify this period as the rise of the third party and predicts the Republican Party will split in the 2016 election...
Then, perhaps, a conservative party can take it's place.
It already has. People just want to cling to the Reagan era. But when he left, the GOP reverted.
All us ‘Former” republicans growing in number prove the split has already happened. All that remains is finding out whether or not the yellow streak on election day was temporary or permanent.
Reagan could not pass the current “Conservative Litmus Test.”
That us what screwed us in the last 2 POTUS elections.
You can thank Conservative Purists for obozocare.
Bull. I think we are all getting tired of people that say stuff like that. If you want to blame someone, then get it right.
I hear you.
Just speculation, but I could see Palin leading this - if she puts herself unequivocally forward to lead.
... and stops the screechy voice*
*added to make heads explode
My thoughts exactly..
You can see from that list why I couldn't vote for Romney.
The GOP can't even field candidate that meets their own platform.
... broader reporting of impact throughout europe.
Interesting. I wouldn’t be surprised. And, quite frankly, I hope it does split.
I like Sarah but she has no interest in “leading”. Actually leading is very different from being a “leading voice”.
Same here. They don’t have to be “perfect” but they sure can’t be idiots (Romney) or Dim-lite (Bush). I guess Romney was both of those.
“It already has. People just want to cling to the Reagan era. But when he left, the GOP reverted.”
It is worth noting that the Central Republican Party did not like Reagan. They were forced to accept him when he won. Everyone likes a winner. They, however, did not change their beliefs.
Political oligarchs mouth the words people want to hear in order to retain power. It happens every election cycle. Conservatives here and elsewhere really believed Mitt RINOmney had changed and was a conservative now, despite the evidence. They believed it about McLame.
They will believe it about Jeb Bush or RINOmney II. They’ll condemn everyone who doesn’t believe it.
“Reverted” is the correct word. Perhaps “took their masks off is a good phrase.”
“That us what screwed us in the last 2 POTUS elections.”
Having weak candidates didn’t help. You have to be able to convince people to vote for your vision and ideas a la Ronald Reagan. The message has to be strong, consistent and clear. The two previous candidates failed to make their case IMO.
>>I’m not looking for perfection. But a candidate has to have a history of being pro-life, pro-gun, against socialized medicine, against amnesty, and for smaller government.<<
Thus, you gave us... OBOZO!
Good work! America and (more importantly its children and children’s children) thank you!
>>You can see from that list why I couldn’t vote for Romney.<<
Yeah, that worked.
I can get you a time machine to transport back so you can not vote against FDR.
>>Bull. I think we are all getting tired of people that say stuff like that. If you want to blame someone, then get it right.<<
And who do we have as president?
Are you happy you put him in office? Not only do you and I have to deal with his ineptness, your children and grand children and great grandchildren will, too.
Good work. Your purity test worked perfectly.
You'll do it again in 2016, and give us 8 years of Hillary.
Your party loves open primaries so that liberal democrats can pick the nominees for your party. They love starting the primaries in liberal eastern states.
That's what gave us Obama.
And with all your whining, you still aren't going to get conservatives to vote for your liberal republican candidates.
>>Nope. Your liberal republican party gave us Obama, by running a liberal republican candidate that conservative said they wouldn’t vote for.
You’ll do it again in 2016, and give us 8 years of Hillary.<<
Your non-vote put obozo in office. When the dust settles, vote for the least-bad.
>>Your party loves open primaries so that liberal democrats can pick the nominees for your party. They love starting the primaries in liberal eastern states.<<
Irrelevant. You chose to put obozo into office.
>>That’s what gave us Obama.
And with all your whining, you still aren’t going to get conservatives to vote for your liberal republican candidates.<<
You wear your guilt on your sleeve. You and your kind gave us obozo. Your progeny and downstream will have to live with obozocare forever. If nothing else McCain and Romney would have killed that before it infected the USA.
obozo and obozocare are your creations. Wear them proudly.
Your whining about conservatives not voting for your liberal republican candidate proves the weakness of your liberal republican party.
Eventually, when that party is destroyed, a conservative party can grow in it's place.
Until then, your party will give us liberal candidates that conservatives won't vote for.
>>Until then, your party will give us liberal candidates that conservatives won’t vote for.<<
You foolish worm-eating children don’t know the difference between the nomination process and the election process.
I want the most conservative candidate we can get. As I said, if you did not already see him in action, you purists would have knocked Reagan as too liberal for your tastes.
I am hoping we get Cruz or Sarah (both probably too liberal for you).
But when all is said and done, I would rather have the weaker Conservative than just stand by and let the lefty fascists take over the government.
As I said before — good work on your part getting obozo elected. Your acid test worked perfectly.
>>If you vote for a liberal republican, you ARE a liberal. And you support the liberal agenda that is destroying America.<<
As opposed to voting (by absentia) for a complete communist fascist.
Your way is much MUCH better. You can defend yourself to your grandchildren when they ask why they have to pay taxes every year just for being alive.
I 100% guarantee Romney (RINO he was) would NOT have allowed obozocare to get out the door.
I say again to you and yours: good work! We have you to thank for obozocare!
I thank idiots that thought/think the guy that invented it was gonna end it. Because it takes a well and true idiot to look at Romney’s advocacy of every left wing cause there is including abortion, gun control, environmentalism ectectectect and say “Yup! THAT GUY is gonna take us down the conservative path!”
A complete and utter idiot.
If you vote for a gun-grabber, you are a gun grabber.
My list is very short, and is actually reflected in your party platform. It's not purism. It's basic conservatism.
Cruz meets my list. He's pro-life, pro-gun, against socialized medicine, against amnesty, and for smaller government.
That is all that is required to get my vote.
Those few things. And your party ran the father of Romneycare, who had a record of banning guns and signing off on abortion. Look to your party first for the flaw.
>> look at Romneys advocacy of every left wing cause there is including abortion, gun control, environmentalism ectectectect and say Yup! THAT GUY is gonna take us down the conservative path!

Much better to let the Wookie win...
>>Those few things. And your party ran the father of Romneycare, who had a record of banning guns and signing off on abortion. Look to your party first for the flaw.<<
If you had a viable 3rd party candidate, no one heard about him/her. Sarah was done for 2012.
obozo and obozocare are your creations. Own up to it like a grownup.
He absolutely would have kept it in place and insisted that the individual mandate must remain in place, even if the GOP managed to repeal obamneycare. He's faggot. His followers are faggots. The GOPe is a faggot organization. It's too late to save the GOP.
Either join the Conservatives or ESAD.
>>Either join the Conservatives or ESAD.<<
Great. Who was the Conservative candidate in 2008? 2012?
If we don’t have one in 2016 will you vote for hitlery like you did for obozo in those years?
If you didn’t vote, obozocare is on you — 100%
So, to make it perfectly clear, as the current prez says, the Republican Party will be split between the God Party and the Mammon Party. It depends on what is most important to you.
“As for me and my house, we will serve The Lord.”
>>He absolutely would have kept it in place and insisted that the individual mandate must remain in place, even if the GOP managed to repeal obamneycare.<<
And a little reality check: Romney ran on stopping obozocare. He never repudiated it in MA but it was clear he regretted it.
Whether he would have followed up on that we will never know b/c people like you got obozo elected.
No, you can thank George Bush and Karl Rove for Obama.
I repeat...A complete and utter idiot. No need to prove it again. We already see it clearly.
The main centre-right and left groupings still hold the majority of seats between them. Add in the Liberals and the Greens and parliament is overwhelmingly pro-EU. In that sense if the main groups in the parliament choose to ignore those who didn't vote for them last night, they can.
I guess it depends on where you want to be “lead” to.
Decades and decades of compromises and grand bargains
from both parties has “lead” this country to the brink of collapse.
>>I repeat...A complete and utter idiot. No need to prove it again. We already see it clearly.<<
If you are talking about people who sidelined themselves and elected obozo, 100% concur.
Over the next two years several countries, large and small will opt out and the Euro will fall...becoming irrelevant AS NATIONAL CURRENCIES SUBSUME that capital in other forms.
Nothing made in Germany will sell in Europe and it will simply cost too much in French Francs, Swiss Francs, Italian Lira and whatever the Greeks come up with.
The Germans cannot be pleased with this result.
It's NOT 'odd' - they still want their politicians to take money from 'the rich' but they don't want to share the ill-begotten loot with 'immigrants'. It's dawning on these people they've been scammed by their liberal elites who want cheap labor - and 'shared' crumbs for 'the people'....
Which is also happening here...
>>No, you can thank George Bush and Karl Rove for Obama.<<
There is a lot of substance in that statement. Bush’s “high road” doctrine let any and all slams against him go unanswered (Katrina was one the fastest and best responses to a disaster in modern history and Bush let the left define it as Conservative neglect).
But other than the Black vote, the “Conservative Purity” vote helped obozo in 2008 and probably was the difference in 2012 (and obozocare could have been killed in 2012 by Romney).
The prefect is the enemy of the good/not that bad.
Our retort? We don't vote for crap sandwiches GOPe, so start getting your priorities right in the primaries!
Living up to your nic as usual.
Bush and Rove’s policies lead to one of lowest approval ratings in American History when
he left office. A 27% approval to be exact. Yep 27%
That gave us Obama. The GOP had all three branches of Government
and spent like drunken sailors.
So, you can thank Bush, Rove and the GOP for Obama.
Decades and decades of “moderate leadership” has brought this country
to the brink. Reagan was the only exception.
What part of that do you not understand?
Your way isn’t working. Time to try something different, like another
true conservative, like Reagan.
Yes, I believe the Republican party must be destroyed first.
Whatever is left in the ruins can be shaped into a Conservative party.
And don't hand me a bunch of nonsense about irreversible gains by the left. There is NO political order that cannot be overturned through the barrel of a gun.
Can we get rid of this guy? His post #24 is offensive...
"You foolish worm-eating children dont know the difference between the nomination process and the election process."
Or, at least make him promise to be civil?
Right, burn it all down. That’s a philosophy for winners.
You got the amnesty part wrong. Cruz supports the legalization of illegals. He just doesn't call it Amnesty.
