With Friends Like These, Who Needs Liberals? (Palin Tells it like it is!)
Sarah palin's Facebook Page ^ | June 25, 2014 | Sarah Palin

Posted on 06/25/2014 9:24:16 AM PDT by Timber Rattler

As we pointed out last week, there were several potentially illegal political games afoot in Mississippi to motivate Democrat voters to "switch" over to the GOP for a day to help save a 42 year Republican member of Congress. On top of that, millions of dollars from out of state liberal billionaires like Mike Bloomberg poured in at the last minute on that same incumbent’s behalf. You have to ask yourself why? When a primary election is lost fairly, I am all for unifying behind the victor and joining forces to fight in November. When an election is questionable, with potential legal violations, politics MUST be put aside and the irregularities MUST be fully investigated. Regardless of party, we owe it to voters and to democracy within our Republic.

The integrity of the vote speaks directly to the integrity of those who serve and the trust we ask the American public to put in our institutions. I told Chris McDaniel last night that I stand with his effort to get to the bottom of this – he needs to know average, but tremendously concerned, citizens want to make sure the integrity of last night’s results in Mississippi are verified. Voting shenanigans never cease to amaze, but they had better cease altogether for the sake of ethical elections. And any GOP “architect” behind these abhorrent voting shenanigans should be ashamed of this Pyrrhic victory for the establishment. If we find out it's true that some of the characters alleged to have masterminded this Mississippi hijacking are the same ones who've tried to destroy other Republicans’ careers, they need to be taken to task and only be hired by unethical campaigns. Fool us once, shame on you; fool us twice, shame on us. And if any news organization ignores a free and fair elections issue like this, then whether left-leaning or center right, their silence will speak volumes.

Someone needs to tell Rove that a “Landslide Victory” doesn’t involve having to spend 11 times as much money as your opponent to get 9 percentage votes by scaring up votes from the other party using blatant lies to protect an incumbent who has been in office for nearly half a century...

Dems learned a lot when Lisa Murkowsky lost the republican primary in Alaska..
ran as independant and the Rinos and most democrats voted for her instead of the democrat candidate... (She WON)

It’s an open question whether the republican party learned anything.. probably not..
They have a “mania” for giving democrats benefit of the doubt..

It’s really a sickness.. the republican party is SICK..

VERY good question... it is very easy to run thru the voter database and find those who voted in the D primary AND the R primary.... if they run that query, they’ll find enough illegal crossovers to give McDaniels the win, and the GOPe will have spent all that time and money for naught.

Possibly when all the “free” money is gone, all social systems have collapsed, when all signs of a real depression are everywhere, when Hispanics are the new majority minority, and the U.N. is taking over important government agencies, perhaps, just perhaps black voters will awaken. I’m not holding my breath, however. All this election proves is that Lyndon B. Johnson was correct yet again.

No where on that G_D D_MNED flyer did it ever say that THAD was runnign as a Republican, it is worded that if you read it and you were a DEMOCRAT you would NATURALLY ASSUME that Thad was a DEMOCRAT!!!!!!!

They need to tie that Flyer back to THAD Campaign and SUE HIS SORRY WRINKLED ASS for Election FRAUD!!!

The main problem is that a Thug will ALWAYS win against a Boy Scout....

We need to stop being such damned Boy Scouts and start being pissed off Patriots....

The Conservative Republican Party is falling because we have played Boy Scout too damned long and failed to Notice the Thugs that have infiltrated it...

Be patient... McDaniels will figure out how to negate this. May take a while.

In the meantime, MS Rs need to print up and mail out Chris McDaniels stickers to everybody they know for the write-in.

Sarah, it is time. The pubs can fight as dirty as the dems. Trouble is, they fight us, not the other side of the aisle. Lots of ‘smidgens’ on both sides of that aisle. No matter how you look, they they are no different. A new CONSERVATIVE party should be a top priority. New blood and faces. New ideas and strategies. Many of WTP will never trust or vote for an R again. We look to you, with a prayer of convection that a patriot will be found who loves this country as we do and able to make us whole and noble once again. Lord help us, Amen.

What say we cross the line in November and vote out Cochran to deny the GOP-e any victory. We should see how close they are to taking the senate and not shoot ourselves in the foot though.

We need to focus even harder on state & local races and also on Republican leadership elections. These pukes don’t have enough money or manpower to stop change from the bottom up.

When politicians can post pure crap like this, and get the opposing party to swing an election in their favor, you get to see who the true enemy is. Both parties are two sides to the same coin. If you are a conservative, you have a choice of either getting kicked in the teeth by democrats, or stabbed in the back by republicans. And for all of the republican cheerleaders around here, telling conservatives to vote for the lesser evil: you are part of the problem, and are more than likely actively engaging in political sabotage.

We need to establish some planks for a new party that are IMMUTABLE that will prevent the sort of corruption we see IN BOTH parties othwerwise we will eventually see this crap again.....

I say we have a plank that says: we will have closed primaries, and no incumbent in our party shall run un-opposed in ANY primary.

Maybe a few more anti-incumbent type Planks, maybe a sliding threshold an incumbent has to beat to win primary based on how long they have been in office.

- 1st term incumbent has to get 52%
- 2nd term incumbent has to get 54%
- 3rd term incumbent had to get 56% (and so on and so forth)

The primary process the MAIN way to parties have to “clean house” of the entrenched politician, and it is severly broken in BOTH parties...

That is not true at all. We let them do this because we thought "Open" primaries would be more "fair". This wasn't the case of being "boyscouts", after all the boy scout motto used to be "be prepared". (now I think it's "be fabulous" or something) Anyone that thought this through knew this was going to happen, we have seen it happen before. We need to take over the local party organization and make all party primaries be party only.

*Along with rules so changing party affiliation can't be done within a certain amount of time of an election or primary.

Everyone saw this coming. Why Republicans haven't closed their primaries is beyond me. We can't both whine about our party being stolen while we are throwing it away in eager surrender. If we don't have the will and energy to take our own party back, we will not have the greater will and energy needed to create a 3rd party.
