That giant sucking sound: conservatives fleeing the GOP's "Big Tent"
renewamerica.com ^ | 6/30/14 | Bryan Fischer

Posted on 07/01/2014 11:46:11 AM PDT by cotton1706

When even the Democrats admit the election was stolen, it's time for a re-do.

Sen. Thad Cochran emerged from the June 24 GOP senate primary run-off election against state senator Chris McDaniel with a margin of victory of about 6700 votes. Haley Barbour's machine dangled enough money in front of enough Democrats to get 35,000 of their votes for Cochran.

Now if any of those Democrats voted in the Democratic primary on June 3, they were ineligible to vote in the Cochran-McDaniel run-off.

Thus, if the poll books indicate that somewhere in the neighborhood of 7000 votes were improperly and illegally cast, this election should be headed toward yet another run-off. Maybe this time it will be fair.

According to Breitbart, Claude McInnis, the Hinds County Democratic Party election coordinator, believes there were a whole truckload of fraudulent Democratic votes cast in his county alone.

"I'm going to guess 3,000," he told Breitbart. "It may be more, but I only have access to the Democratic votes, so that's what I'm guessing the difference may be."

Even worse for the Barbour Regime Machine, the chairman of the state Democratic Party, Rickey Cole, is admitting the election likely was stolen from McDaniel. He told Breitbart that "it is very conceivable" that the McDaniel camp "will find a number of irregularities that will reach 6,700 or greater," a number which would call for a new election.

"You don't have to prove who they voted for," said Cole. "You just have to prove there were that many ineligible ballots. That puts the intent of the voting public in doubt, and that's the path by which a court would order a new election."

I hope Haley Barbour rots in prison all the rest of the days of his life for this.

How many time does the GOP-e have to tell us that they don't want us?

How many times do they have to publicly say that they are embarrassed by having us?

How many times will they eagerly dump a Conservative candidate who speaks an ill-advised word? (However, John McCain can run off at the mouth and no one disowns him.)

There will almost certainly be truckloads of FRAUDULENT absentee ballots that came in for the corrupt Cochran.

The GOPe, who for years called us 'unappeasables' told us to not make 'perfect the enemy of the possible' and to suck it up and vote for their establishment guy, has proven again they are not willing to accept a fair loss to conservatives, and will bend and break the rules to get their way.

And so far I’ve only read about True The Vote trying to get access to these absentee ballots to investigate their legitimacy. And TTV was getting resistance from authorities on releasing the information—I wonder why?

GOPe - you’re nothing to me now. You’re not a brother, you’re not a friend. I don’t want to know you or what you do — I don’t want to see you at the hotels — I don’t want you near my house — when you see our mother I want to know a day in advance, so I won’t be there — you understand.

If they work for the government they're probably fellow "useful" idiots to Cochran. I'm sure they wanted him reelected.

ANYBODY who votes for Cochran can never again complain about dem voter fraud.

These shenanigans have made me vow to never vote for a gop-e candidate again. I will likely never vote gop again.

They royally screwed the pooch this time. If I do not have a true conservative - one that is not part of the crony establishment - I will vote dem, just to see the gop-e candidate DIE

Cochran was going to lose the Repub primary runoff so he invited the Dimmos to vote in that race. Shameful and disgusting tactics that I hope blows up in his face.

The "Blacks for Cochran" may have done more than win a primary for Cochran; they may have splintered the Republicans and lead to Democrat victories in November.

It reminds me of the Arab Muslim conquest of the Eastern Roman province of Egypt in the 7th century.

The Egyptians were Monophysite Christians, while the imperial capital Constantinople was Orthodox. Years of religious persecution of Egypt by Constantinople alienated the Egyptian Christians, who then didn't feel like fighting on behalf of the Eastern Roman Empire which persecuted them, and so the Arabs took over Egypt.

How many times will party-hack sycophants of the GOP Ruling Class threaten FReepers that if we do not vote for the guy with the 'R" after their name - that we are 'traitors' and 'carry the full responsibility of what Obama and the Democrats are doing'?????

Time to tell them all they can pound sand.

The GOP went Whig in their effort to make Conservatives politically irrelevant.

When "moderate" Republicans start recruiting Democrats so they can win, it should be a wake up call to all conservatives that a third party is needed.

The Republicans won't get one dime from me. And if I were in Mississippi I wouldn't cross the street to vote for Sen. Thad Cochran. They're playing us for suckers.

Great analogy.

What if the Ruling Class at the Imperial Capital were happy with and silently working for the Arabs to take over Egypt because they hated the Monophysite Christians more than the idea of losing a country?

I think that would fit the GOP Ruling Class more perfectly in how it views Conservative Christians that it hates more than the idea of losing the country itself to the MarxoFascists.

"will find a number of irregularities that will reach 6,700 or greater," a number which would call for a new election.

New election? Why should the guy who was cheated have to run another campaign?

Cochran should go to jail, the election should be overturned, and we should move on.

"That giant sucking sound: conservatives fleeing the GOP's "Big Tent"..."

.... The DOPe (Devout Obama Party establishment) are counting on this to happen to guarantee a split vote amongst the remnants of the GOP. This will guarantee the next President is a Democrat and create the event horizon of one party rule in America.

.... You could say it's a Win/Win situation for them.

Given the ugly demographic trends, the continued excellence in Democrat voter fraud in battleground states, and sustained infighting on our side, it’s not difficult to forecast continued Democrat rule.

Well, there is a kind of balance there: I hate the Ruling Class of the gop more than I hate the idea of losing to the dems.

The lying, cheating, thieving dem is exactly who I think he is, and I keep my eye on him.

The lying, cheating, thieving gop, until now, I trusted to do the right thing, most of the time. But since they snuck up behind me and stabbed me in the back, I want nothing to do with ‘em. I used to say with confidence that when it was nut-cutting time, the guy with the R behind his name would vote to lower taxes and cut spending. They’ve proven me wrong on the one, solid argument for loyally voting gop on the general ballot...

I didn’t leave the gop, they sorta slimed away from me, and the further away they got, the more they looked like the lying, cheating, thieving dems...and now, I can’t tell ‘em apart.

And the worst part of all of this? The GOPe may have opened Pandoras box and put Mississippi, which is a deeply red state into play for the rats. Because now, all those rats who would stay home due to not having a chance at winning so why bother, might just come to the polls and vote.

More than once...and there won’t be a damn thing Barber or the rest of the reThuglicans that run Mississippi can do about it. Complain and they are racist.

Unintended consequences.

>>When the tent gets so big that it overlaps the Rat tent, it’s time to leave.<<

I disagree. When the leaders act like they’re in the other tent, it’s time to pick new leaders. The tea party movement is pulling the GOP back toward traditional American values like fiscal responsibility and limited government, but some of the leaders are resisting.

The solution is to dump the leadership, not the party. Cantor was a start, and a darned good one at that. What you’re seeing now are the actions of a very scared few, desperate to maintain control, but they’re losing.

Recognize the successes thus far and soldier on. Mississippi was a very costly battle for the leadership, and they probably haven’t paid the full price yet.

Up the Banner of the Liberty Reform Party! The Tea Party pointed the way—now the next level—a political party (like the UKIP in England) Our flag—set aside the rattlesnake flag and embrace the “Liberty or Death” Flag of the Whiskey Rebellion (another anti-tax movement)-—Purge the RINOs! Resurect the old GOP—These are my goals-— Put Ronald Reagan’s face on the side of a mountain! Put Tariffs on Cheap Foreign Cars (the ones not built in the USA) Rebuild the Military and Navy. Toss into the ashcan of history foreign aid to nations that hate us—No more free stuff to Islamic states.

Had the same wake up call back in 2008.

The primary in KY this past year confirmed with absolute certainty that the decision I made to depart the GOP was justified.

The GOP Ruling Class are simply the Judenrats for the MarxoFascists. Both entities hate Conservatives equally and are working together to render us irrelevant. The constant demonization from BOTH the GOP leadership and the Democrat Marxists that Conservatives are racist/evil/rich/homophobes is now non-stop.

From there is it a small step to criminalizing Conservatism and then physically eradicating it - as history teaches time and again happens EVERY SINGLE TIME the leadership and ruling class of a country targets a segment of their population with such derision.

We're DONE with that obscene logic. It's a continuous lesson in futility - we're tired of practicing insanity. The Ruling Class will NEVER allow another Cantor-esque loss to ever happen again which is WHY you saw the GOP leadership breaking the law to use black Democrats to defeat a Conservative who WON the primary in MS.

You CANNOT remove tyrants from within institutions they have corrupted for themselves via civil means. Fact of life and history.

A do-over, because there is no way to know how the illegally cast ballots went. Once there are enough to match the margin of victory, MAYBE all of them were for the winner, who (now) MAYBE didn't win.

That's the best that can be done, and is the most generous to the challenger, as it assumes 100% of the illegal ballots went to the supposed winner.

Not even close.

Obama was voted in both times via voter fraud.

Put together the millions of people who signed up through ACORN and the millions of non citizens that voted and there you have it.

Signing up with ACORN is like appointing them as authorized to do a proxy vote for you.

Many of those that signed up and went to vote on voting day were told they already voted.

Republicans and Democrats alike have been giving illegal alien insurgent criminal invaders the right to vote at least since the Clinton administration.

The dems outright and the GOP-e by not stopping them.

Now the GOP-e is buried eyeball deep in voter fraud just like their "rivals" [LOL at that!] have been for decades.

As we can see by what is happening right at this moment in MI, voter fraud should be at the to of the to-do list of every Conservative that believes in our Constitutional Republic.
