Remember, Republicans are better than Democrats.
Because being stabbed in the back is better somehow. And it doesn’t hurt the brand. Which doesn’t hurt the long term chances of turning the country around.
Nope, nosiree. Keep voting Republican!
Is it possible all that so-called “nonsense” talk so many of us had about the Democrats infiltrating our ranks all the way from the grassroots to the RNC wasn’t just talk after all? Or maybe we’ve always had far too many moderates in our ranks than we cared to admit. Either way the GOP is about to take a winning advantage and blow it all in just a few years.
Every time there’s negative information about the Republican Party, someone like you always comes around to post the same sarcastic comments about voting Republican. I’m a FReeper going on about 10 years now, and I can’t remember anyone posting that we should keep voting for the RINOs no matter what they do.
The Republican Party’s political situation is obviously far more complex than posters like you let on. For one thing, you ignore the war that’s currently being waged within the GOP, and there are some very good conservative Republicans. People are trying to elect more conservatives of course, but we have to beat the Chamber of Commerce owned RINOs and then the Democrats in that order.
I don’t know of any FReeper who adores the RINO faction. If so, they probably wouldn’t last long here. The RINOs are an enemy of a slightly different sort but almost as bad as the Democrats. We conservatives want to defeat both, but the real issue is how to do that.
I don’t see very many people posting CONSTRUCTIVE comments about how we conservatives can actually win political power and return to constitutional governance. Refusing to vote is hardly the answer, and going third party seems foolish when we can’t muster even enough political power, i.e. votes, to reform the GOP even though conservatives are likely its biggest faction.
If people are serious about making things better, then they have to start working harder to nominate good conservatives who can ultimately win general elections. The most viable route to do that is likely (still) through the Republican Party.
