Yes, FReepU GOPe, but surrender? NUTS!
The battle rages on.
Landslide in November and again in 2016! Repeal all of Obama's Marxist disasters!
Take our country back!!
Rebellion is brewing!!
Is the win in Mississippi actually official?
It takes what it takes to get us to rebellion. November is key.
3rd party now...will never vote for a Republican that’s not in the mold of Ted Cruz.
Closed primaries would be a good idea too.
Every joy or trial cometh from above
Traced upin our dial by the Son of love
Breitbart.com reports Chris McDaniel is mulling a recount. Must be sure fire over, as they are enbedded at McDaniel headquarters.
We are winning slowly, but we are winning. Mississippi just learned that they have to take over the state GOP and change the primary rules. Pass a closed primary law. As much as we all hate to have to vote for GOPe candidates, in some cases we just “have to”. We absolutely have to win the Senate and hold the house if we want to have any chance of saving the country. We are gaining some more conservatives and that is progress. We continue to work hard to hold the congress’ feet to the fire, and change the things we can change as we gain more conservatives with each election. The dems took almost 100 years to take the country down. Let us build it back up, even if it takes another 100 years.
Oops. Dang tiny tablet keys....
enbedded - embedded
Ugh. I hope I wake up tomorrow to different news.
Fight on bump!!!
We are not voting democrat lite with an R by their tail end. Not anymore. Not now. Never again. This is about conservative wins, not propping up liberals in the R Establishment.
We are conservatives, not party nerd enablers.
>> We are winning slowly, but we are winning.
Agreed. The GOP-e is taking serious hits. Keep pounding!
Right on, Jim.
ready ? let’s roll ....
” A squad of uniformed Armed Forces members , with sidearms at their hips , come into the Oval Office and state the following : Mr President , you are under arrest for high crimes and treason against the United States “
Right on Jim.
While I support, and predict, a backlash against the cockroach Cochran (which will cost a seat, but what's the diff?), a third party is the prescription for failure.
Let's retake the GOP as traditional Republicans, that is the only way to take back our wonderful Country.
The best way to take back the GOP is to let the RINO’s lose in November.
Free Republic was and is ahead on the curve.
You will now see this and other things from JimRob in Main street Conservative news now.
We will NOT give in to the Uniparty!
Cochran was courting Democrats on THEIR agenda.
Who do you think he will owe favors to (if) he takes office?
I just oppose a third party, as it is a sure fire gift to the Marxist/progressive/Dems who want to take your property, guns, and Constitution.
After tonight, anyone continuing to push the GOP is every bit as evil as the dems are. there is no exuse for supporting a party that resorts to democrats to beat conservatives.
None. It is simple math. If one supports democrats or their supporters, one is a democrat no matter how loud they scream that they are conservative. And they should be treated with the scorn any open democrat gets.
Everyone has to follow their own conscience. I have to face reality, so I will be voting for a moderate Republican in Nov. in order to help elect another GOP Senator who I might be able to influence, as opposed to a dem who I would have NO chance of influencing. Saving the country before it’s too late seems to me like a worthy effort.
It’s the Obamocrat and Republocrat Socialists against the Tea Party Americans.
Closed primaries would be a good idea too.
Dems didn’t turn out for Thad because they want the republican to win the election. I believe it is the same reason Lindsey Graham keeps getting back in.
Thad-(dem)Miss. Will not run again after November so just how are you going to influence his open border scamnesty, budget busting ways?
Hint: You can’t.
Same with the Turtle from Kentucky.
Don't allow RINOs to allow "open Primaries" and you'll rid yourself of this kind of sham voting.
Don't pull your marbles and go home merely because you lost one vote.
Taking back the party takes determination and patience.
Ronald Reagan learned that lesson and wound up winning gargantuan elections.
He could have given up and gone home to California after losing a bruising fight to the empty suit of Gerald Ford but he didn't quit.
Reagan also didn't jump ship, cry and claim he would go "third party," merely because he lost one battle.
Yes, losing is a bitter pill but even liberals know how the game is played. In fact, they play it better than we conservatives do, i.e. lose one race and get bitter and quit.
Another point of fact is that liberals occupy the nation by running a "baby steps" game, don't go for the whole pie all at once, go for baby steps and settle for little battles in order to win BIG victories later.
Liberals didn't get where they are today by demanding everything all at once. They also don't go home and quit when they lose.
They lie in wait, when the nation's backs are turned, getting little pieces of the pie and - bingo they have gay marriage by fiat!
Liberals knew if they got the right teachers teaching the right curricula in schools, before long kids graduating high school, heading off to college, would see homosexuality as a "right" and just "another choice of relationship." Those students taught by the "right teachers" came of age believing that to deny homosexuals was the "right thing to do" and people who didn't want it to happen, were just wrong and bigots.
The next hit the GOP-e needs to take is for everyone to vote Dem in November.
GOPe has influence of controls of rules about primaries. It should be painfully obvious now that GOPe are democrats with ‘Rs’ on their lapels. They have most of the bases covered including most primaries.
I am thinking the only two ways to break the lock hold of democrats and their GOP infiltrators are:
1. Support GOPe in gaining control of Senate and returning filibuster rule to traditional status. This allows Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and others to shut down any progressive legislation that the democrats and their GOPe agents try and ram through. It also buys time to get more Tea Party conservatives into Congress in 2016 and Ted Cruz/Sarah Palin into the White House in January 2017.
2. Go full bore 3rd Party and form a coalition with majority status made from Conservatives, Perot blue collars, Reagan democrats, Independents and Libertarians. This has the advantage of neutering the GOPe. It also opens an opportunity to attract disgruntled urban black leaders who have voiced a willingness to join the Tea Party.
If I can I will steer major funding to a Tea Party Convention in 2016. I am working 24/7 on funding this and hope to have the funding in place in January 2015.
Preach it, my friend. You get it.
Your vote is the problem with our resistance to Marx. Let your concience or fear factor, whichever, hold you responsible for what exactly you enable.
Thankfully, your Establishment ranks are seriously thinning. We are conservatives, not Republicans first. Conservatives don’t aid and abett liberals.
Sorry, you’re no conservative. See post 22 above for details.
I assure you I will not be voting for a RINO.
NO!!! they can fight us just like a GOP in DC and thats fine! Fighting against conservatism is VERY conservative and helping ensure Democrats go unprosecuted is how you move the party rightward.
Have you learned nothing?
When the GOP runs to the democrats to beat the guy and the conservative cause you claim to support, obviously it’s an act of conservatism.
you purists are the problem.
The only reason dims vote in republican primaries is so that they can then attempt to decide who their opponent will be.
Though the RNC/GOP loves to run squishy candidates, doing half the job for the dims right off the bat.
Actually Normy, I thought I was linking to your post 22. Too late I realized my reply was processed on another thread. Calm thyself. Rita
I was being sarcastic. I agree with you ;)
It’s hard to tell who the enemy is anymore. We all want to defeat the left. We know they are destroying our nation. Unfortunately, our establishment moderates in the party don’t see it that way, and more often than not they’re stabbing us in the back. Are they so blind for power they can’t see the threat the left poses to our nation’s present and future? Or has the Republican Party been infiltrated by Democrats who are the GOPe?
Don’t know if it is possible, but McDaniel should run as an independent in November to insure Cochran is defeated! Having Cochran is no different than having a democrat!!!
Don't quit the game, just fight harder, elect conservative Precinct leaders in each Precinct, who will go to State conventions and change voting rules.
That's where all of this is won or lost but most people don't know it.
That's also where you can effectively make the biggest difference.
If you don't know who your Precinct Committeemen and women are, shame on you.
Find out, and if they are RINOs, in two years or sooner, run against them and find a partner of the opposite sex who is also a blood brother/sister in conservative politics. Then become delegates to the District and State Party and vote for a new platform and new rules governing elections. Toss out "open primaries" for they always favor liberals and never help conservatives.
Toss out a RINO Secretary of State (presuming the office is held by the GOP) for it is your Sec. of State that can effect tightening election rules.
Lastly but not least, don't quit, don't go whining home with your tail between your legs, stand up and fight!
Don''t change your party, change party rules my friend.
Effect a bloodless coup of a RINO State Party!
Well, h //, tonight you never know! Besides, my recipient might believe you. Heck. I was convinced, you big galute.
There will be no humor allowed during combat with these yumbots drifting around on FR.
Right, and you gotta have some perspective. The tea party candidate came within a hair of beating an entrenched six term incumbent despite being massively outspent. That’s pretty impressive. And look at the incumbent — he had to resort to unprecedented scumbaggery to squeek out his digraceful win. That’s pathetic. I think there’s blood in the water. We need to be resilient and tenacious and continue to build. We should NOT give in to the “the country is lost” mindset that wants to say to hell with it all and steer the car into the ditch.
This is actually the best strategy to reclaiming our country. It ENDS the GOP forever. I've stated for years that the GOP is nothing but a bodyguard for the Democrats. To wipe out the Democrats, you've got to remove their protection racket. If the Democrats had complete control, maybe they'll attempt to totally enslave us and then perhaps we can get this over with in OUR lifetimes. We owe it to our children to fight this battle rather than hope that a fake conservative party will. Screw the GOP. It's up to us to do the heavy lifting. I'm convinced of the strength of we the people versus our present overlords. Bring it on.
Rita, you and I have not disagreed on anything of significance in 2 years. Why would I start now? ;)
Of course if we did, OBVIOUSLY you would be at fault because I NEVER EVER have made a mistake in my life. I thought I did once. I was 3. But then I realized I wasn’t and all was well with the world.
We need a second party.
Right now we have the moderate and liberal wings of the Socialist party. There is no conservative party. There is only the Socialist party.
We have a problem with the Establishment VOTERS as well. Plenty of them are still willing to enhale the DC pudding around here too. Go figure.
I’d rather get it over now rather than dragging it out.
You ole charm machine. BFF. (”Lord, I hope he knows what that means”.)
