How do you like it? Being Stabbed up front by a Democrat or in the back by GOP elite?
The Truth

Posted on 06/24/2014 9:09:03 PM PDT by Bigtigermike

After the shameful and disgusting actions of the GOP Establishment in the Mississippi Republican U.S. Senate runoff, where they used Democrat tactics of screaming racism and promising big government to get the vote out to Democrat voters to cross over and help Thad Cochran win, is it time that conservatives realize that a GOPE can never be trusted? Time and time again, the ruling class aka Karl Rove, Boss Hogg Barbour, big donors, K Street lobbyists and RINO's continue to stab conservatives in the back and would rather risk losing an election to a Democrat than give up their power to a true conservative or a group of them any day!

Many conservatives think that next time it will be different, that next time these RINO's will finally learn their lesson and acquiesce to the voice of their base when in reality they don't give a d*mn about the base. They could care less about their voters because as long as they share some power in D.C. then their true voters, the K street/big donor class will take care of them. I'm tired of falling for these jokers that they will straighten up and fly right, it isn't going to happen. Either we move on with our own voice being heard or we give up

McDaniel needs to challenge every single vote.

There is no way Cochran won this thing legitimately.

“There is no way Cochran won this thing legitimately.”

I believe you to be correct as Democrats never win legitimately, and it was Democrats Cochran called to duty to win his election for him.

Here are the number from the main targeted county.. Hinds:

On June 3rd

T. Cochran (i)
65.7%
10,928

C. McDaniel

5,621

TONIGHT:

T. Cochran (i)
72.0%
17,927

C. McDaniel

You said it.

I would just like people to reflect on this.

Except for 2... count them 2... congressional elections, NOT A SINGLE RINO LOST THEIR SEAT this cycle.
“Oh yes, we have to take over the GOP!” With them having Democrats decide the damn election?!

By all means, lets involve ourselves in 2016 when we choose a presidential nominee for the Republican Party, but in these battles... time to go our own way I think. See how well Karl Rove does with his money and cronies. I bet they lose everything.

Sure he did. He just won with DemocRAT voters who will switch parties come General Election time!

Happens all the time in various places around the country.

Liberals are just better at the slight-of-hand than we conservatives when it comes to the bait and switch game.

WAY too many conservatives sit on their dead asses, don't bother to vote, and then bit** about the outcome (see the second election of Obama)

wouldn't we all rather have Romney in the White House????

The reality is, there is a significant number of Republican dupes who will cast their vote for the establishment party guy and not for the conservative. They are as brain-dead as their Democrat counterparts.

We will not regain our liberties or anything close to what our Founding Fathers envisioned through votes and politicians anymore. Those days have passed.

Romney ran harder against the conservatives in the primary than he ran against Obama other than that first debate! We told you people that Romney may be a nice guy but he was the wrong person at this time to run against Obama and that he had a lack of appeal in the rural areas of the states where conservative voice is strong

The best thing to do now is encourage all Tea Party people to vote Dem in November so it’ll teach the Pubbies not to stab conservatives in the back.

When I see more people willing to fight a mere war of words against their online ‘conservative’ BFFs than siting silently while said BFFs spread GOP propaganda far and wide, I will believe they will go to a voting booth and make a more important contribution.

But since most can’t do that much, my faith isn’t great in people doing anything but repeating 2012.

Conservatives tend to play by the rules. It’s one of the things that makes us conservatives. The repulsive, corrupt opposition will always take advantage of this.

The TeaParty in MS needs to vote for the Democrat.

No, they need to run a write in campaign for a Tea Party Independent. Next time they should run a tea party conservative in the Democrat primary. The open primary rules would allow the conservative to win the democrat primary just as it allows liberals to win Republican primaries.

Either way we need to send Thad Cochran back to the senile old folks home. Oh wait, isn't that the Senate?

They should not vote for the Democrats, how does that square with our principles? Either skip that line on the ballot or vote for an independent conservative.

"Conservatives tend to play by the rules," is correct but conservatives can also change those rules.

Political party rules are made and changed every 2 to 4 years, depending which faction of that party takes control.

I've never understood how the GOP winds up with such ineffectual candidates (mainline moderates) wind up winning Presidential Primaries, until I took a good closeup look at the two or three states that tend to set the stage, IA, NH and SC.

IA and NH have open primaries (just like MS) so the liberals in the opposition party have an early, strong hand in picking GOP Prez nominees, who go on to lose in the General elections.

A change in the way primaries are run around the country, is up to each individual state and could just give us conservatives the candidate we want instead of the one the DNC/DC/Wall Street wants!

At least Democrats are supposed to hate us, to play sleazy, makes me sick to know those flyers came from the Establishment, which is another word for Progressive liberal because that is what the GOP-E is, am tired of them being called RINOS, they are NOT RINOS, RINOS means they are Republican just in name only..no that is not how I see it, I see it as they were once Republican but they at some point in their lives crossed over and became Progressives, they are worse than Dems because at least Dems reveal themselves to be the roaches that they are..these “Establishment” types pretend they care about the Republican party but turn around and use the same Dem tactics to defeat us

No Romney is a lib. He is one of them. His people are probably behind this in some way or fashion. You’re trumpeting the non running nominee backstabber as if he was a good thing. It is garbage like this from Romney’s wing of the party that causes people to want to stay home.

The best thing that could happen from this is for the people of Mississippi who refuse to be kept on the GOPe plantation to write in McDaniels name in Nov. If every single person who voted for him today, plus anyone offended at the RINO tactics did this, you would not see the GOPe try this too many more times.

Next time, conservatives should tell Republicans upfront that they will sit out the general if the conservative candidate does not win the primary. They have expected conservatives to hold their noses and vote for moderates, turn about is fair play. The moderates are destroying the country about as fast as the democrats, so let the democrats have it all and receive the brass ring.

The GOPe cannot be trusted... that’s a start towards sanity.

Now if conservatives realize that they themselves cannot be trusted... and if liberals realize their game is insanity... we will be very close to the recovery.

When humanity gives up on itself and goes to the throne of Heaven, they get chided “What took you so long” but then they get help.

There are a lot of “Christians” who really are simply proud of how “well” they “keep the rules.”

"NOT A SINGLE RINO LOST THEIR SEAT this cycle."

More proof that the US is on the Highway to Hell. The corruption of Big government over the individual is so massive that the only thing that can save us is a total devaluation of the dollar, and we will be there sooner than anyone expects, with massive over-regulations, massive deficits and creating money out of thin air, I don't know how much longer the country can survive.

...wouldn't we all rather have Romney in the White House????

Yes, and we would likely have been pleasantly surprised. I've heard it said that his "Romneycare" program as governor was the basis for Obamacare, and that may well be correct. But in that case Romney was doing the WILL OF THE PEOPLE of his state, his duty as governor. As President of the United States, wouldn't he abide by the will of the people by not signing off on something so overwhelmingly unpopular as Obamacare? Would he have set the IRS against his political opposition? Would he have plotted with foreign entities to overwhelm our borders with illegal immigrant kids? I think not.

Thank you for the post Bigtigermike. I have had to hold back my words posting today. Conservative Mississippians worked their butts off for Chris only to get called every racist name in the book by those that are supposed to be on our side. I am done with the GOPe. I hung my head in shame and fury at the Republican party at midnight last night and pulled my Chris McDaniel signs from the yard. Did I mention that I am DONE with them?!?

RNC, KMA!!!

We need to stop thinking in terms of Democrats vs Republicans and start thinking about liberals vs conservatives. Vote and donate to conservatives, oppose liberals. If you have two liberals running in your district, send money to a conservative in a different district. There’s no need to vote for a liberal.
