Sarah Palin calls for tea partyers to 'take back' the nation
Knoxville News Sentinel ^ | June 26, 2014 | Robert L. Wilson

Posted on 06/27/2014 8:54:11 AM PDT by deoetdoctrinae

SEVIERVILLE — Four stalwarts of the nation’s conservative movement exhorted an appreciative Sevier County tea party crowd of several hundred Thursday night to stay true to their principles.

The event had the feel of a pep rally at times, as the speakers cheered the U.S. as the greatest nation on earth. Then each laid out a litany of things wrong with the country, from failure to adhere to Christian governance to multiple scandals to the breakdown of the traditional family to excessive political correctness.

It is time for the “Tea Party” to officially distance themselves from the GOP.

We need to unite Reagan Republicans and Reagan Democrats. These are basically people who are fed up with having their tax dollars being diverted for welfare for the rich and welfare for the lazy.

As it stands now, the Republicans are the party of the Corporate Cronies and the Democrats are the party of the government employee unions and welfare queens. Both parties are busy bankrupting the United States and stealing our precious liberty.

We're trying, Sara, but we keep running up against things like democrats changing the rules in favor of themselves, like this:

The McDaniel campaign has already found 1,000 examples in one county of Democrats who voted in the June 3rd primary as Democrats and then crossed over into the Republican primary this week. This is illegal and their votes should not be counted.

Lindsay Krout, an independent contractor working in Mississippi, was barred from reviewing voter rolls in Lafayette County Mississippi Friday morning.

Anybody with a coherent message showing how both parties are blatantly screwing the middle class worker and taxpayer could build a huge coalition.

I'm totally good with that. Here in NYS the state GOP leader is Nixon's sone in law Ed Cox. The guy has done ZERO party building. He only wanted to go to more cocktail parties. Meanwhile the party has become extinct. The traditional GOP is DEAD. If it weren't for the tea party and conservatives not a single GOP candidate in NYS would get elected.

I'm not sure it ever existed. Reagan was not a traditional GOP member. The GOP despised Reagan as much as they despise McDaniel. If you think about it, when has the GOP ever been for liberty and limited government? Reagan was, but did the GOP ever do anything other than ride his coattails?

Sorry Sarah, but demographic reality says it ain't going to happen.

There are no longer enough Whites in the electorate to elect a Republican president, much less a Constitutional Conservative.

With liberals keeping the border open and legal-immigration visas flying off the presses -- the numbers only get more impossible.

We need to unite Reagan Republicans and Reagan Democrats.

This is another reason why tea party ought to run in DEM primaries as well....especially in RED states. We can get Tea Party on Dem baoolts too .... in RED staes.

This Mississippi event that is preventing McDaniel from cross checking Dem voting rolls with Rep voting rolls is not something we can let go. McDaniel is asking for $$. He already found 1000 votes that were in the the REP primary vote as well as the DEM voting rolls. This is explicitly against the law. Their are counties that are refusing to let McDaniel look at the rolls....and that is illeagal also. McDaniel may have as short as Monday before the Gov. of Mississippi declares the vote final....This is a big thing. I figure Limbaugh will make hay out of this today.

There are certainly enough whites combined with small numbers of minorities to elect a "Republican" president, the problem is that President is unlikely to be the conservative we would all like. Much like Europe, as the population shifts left, the main political parties will shift with it to keep themselves viable. At least in Parliamentary systems you have coalition building opportunities so a political party can stay true to it's platform and still be relevant, whereas here in the US 3rd parties are just a wasted vote.

The problem is WE are increasingly the political minority now in presidential election cycles. There is no longer a "silent majority" of traditionally minded, common sense people who can be tapped. In fact, it may very well be the opposite now - where Democrats can draw on their own "silent majority" of dependent political idiots who will vote for more free stuff if they can be coaxed out from behind the TV to the voting booth. Many of the things that conservatives demand of the House Republicans are unpopular with a majority of the country. Folks want the House to cut off money for Obama's unconstitutional executive/administrative actions, but that gets us to a government shutdown and Democrats love those since the American public has demonstrated time and time again in poll after poll that they don't support it. With only the House, our weapons are a government shutdown and impeachment, both things have proven to be politically disasterous to us in the past. We were moving to impeach Clinton and lost seats in 98', and Clinton came out more popular than ever. Imagine the effect if we did that to the first black....er half black...President.

All these threats to quit the GOP, run 3rd party, refuse to vote, etc, only makes the Republican party care even less what people doing that think. If you aren't a serious voter, they don't care about you. If significant numbers of conservatives heed these calls of 3rd party, they will have the effect of pushing the GOP further left and relegate themselves to irrelevant with their ballots cast for 3rd party's and write ins that will never win.

In our winner take all, 2 party system with no chance of coalition government, there will be no viable 3rd parties. only spoilers ala Perot. We can thank Perot voters, which included a lot of deluded traditionally minded conservative people, for Bill Clinton.

You're assuming a two or three party system. I'm thinking within a few years, there will be four…

My belief--the new banana-republic invaders are not going to go along meekly with Democrats when full-blown narcoterrorism will get them what they want so much faster.

The La Razas or El Narcos party.

Has anyone really observed the dynamics of a racially "diverse" high school? Blacks and Hispanics do not get along, and they do not mix in the same gangs.

And the Chamber of Commerce party is not going to get the Hispanics, either.

Time to form the Conservative Republican party.

The GOP already doesn't care about, actually they hate our guts. The GOP does not want us to vote for them and we shouldn't.

If you aren't a serious voter, they don't care about you

The GOP has no problem bussing in Democrats to stop a conservative from winning. Too many conservatives were serious voters and had to be stopped.

illegal immigration is the true checkmate for our Republic.

If we can't stop these hoards of third-world, disease riddent, corrupt, anti-white, anti-American scum then our Republic will truly be destroyed.

These third-world scum start having babies at 12-13 years of age, each having on average 4-6 kids.

The satanic evil left are consciously pushing to have these third world scum out breed the native population.

The left is truly evil...

Not only whites vote for Republicans.

By the time the Marxist leaves office we will likely have 60Million anti-American third world scum in place in this dying Republic.

within two generations they will vastly our breed and displace the "American" culture.

Short of a miracle, the evil Marxist left will truly succeed in turning our Republic into a dying third world Socialist sewer.

My tag line speaks the cold truth.

I don’t like many of the cultural and electoral changes that our current immigration practices bring - but the “third-world scum” message isn’t going to advance any cause.

I know someone who was sexually assaulted by an illegal. It really messed her up. She is still recovering.

Also, I know many subcontractors. A few had thousands of dollars worth of power tools stolen by "illegals" on job sites. They learned quickly to lock their trucks while on the job.

Another friend who is came legally from Guatamala over 40 years ago and is a legal U.S. citizen. Well, his daughter speaks Spanish and while having lunch with two illegal angels they ask her how much she is getting back from the government? She stated none. Well these two were about 20 -22 years of age. One stated they were getting $23k and the other over $35k. They claimed an outrageous number of dependents and it all went through. My friend said his daughter's jaw dropped when she heard describe their criminal acts.

So yes, MOST are illegal "scum" who have no respect for anything American and who consciously broke our laws to get here and are scamming the system.

They are here not out of love but to utterly destroy America as founded.

She is talking about a three way split. Use the Republicans and Democrats to split the big government fascist vote. Have your third party win due to the split. It is starting to work in the UK and in Europe.

I think the name "Tea Party" has lost its original meaning. Too many have hi-jacked the name to use it for fund raising and who knows where the $$$ goes.

The mess the GOPe has caused in MS is, IMO, going to have unintended consequences for them long range.

I'll never vote for any of them or their chosen candidates again. I will never enable them in their endeavors. They are no better than Democrats!

Jenny Beth Martin (Tea Party Patiots) has a reported salary of $450,000 a year. Her organization spent $0 to help Dave Brat.

They allegedly put all their eggs into the McDaniel race. No report on how much that was, but I am betting it was a whole lot less than JBM's salary.

In the 20th Century, I can think of only one GOP President that stood for Conservative values. That, of course, was President Calvin Coolidge, greatly admired by President Ronald Reagan. All of the others with an "R" next to their name were liberals to one degree or another. Barry Goldwater was still a true Conservative when he ran in 1964 but was thwarted at every turn by the liberal northeastern establishment of the Rockefeller-Javits wing. Nixon, once an inspirational figure as he fought communism in the 1940s and 1950s, had turned liberal by the time was elected in 1968.

You can’t or won’t back up your opinion with specifics so your answer is to ‘not care what I think’. You’re part of the problem, not part of the solution.

I’d say I don’t care what you think but since you won’t tell me what you think, I can’t even do that. Have a great day.
