He could have killed another woman and still have been re-elected in a landslide.

I know the Democrats wouldn't be crazy enough to watch the price of oil zoom past US$90/barrel if Iran does invade Iraq after we leave--it would be economic suicide for them.

I know some people will be mad about my statement, but I personally think that the republicans should drop abortion off the national platform.

Why? The Dims only won by fielding candidates that are pro-life. And pro-gun too. If these new senators and congresscritters were pro-choice gungrabbers, they couldn't have got elected. And they know it.

That doesn't evaporate overnight, even in Washington. They also know how fickle their voters are because many of thes new Dims defeated very fine GOP congresscritters to get elected, Republicans who actually did a good job for their districts and who were only beat because the voters were restless.

The Dims have a majority. But they have now become a 'big-tent' party. IOW, we'll see some revival of the old conservative southern Democrats. Those folks never did like the "northeastern liberal" segment of their party, no more than we conservative like our northeastern liberal segment. But to be a national party with a majority, you have to compete in those states and therefore the big tent.

It's not time to just abandon decades of pro-life (or pro-gun) policy. Especially when the opposition has completely caved on the issue. Nationally, we have won both those issues permanently and the Dims know it.

You political 100%er made your bed. I will enjoy making you lie in it.

This election isn't about FR's little battles.

We held our base solidly. But the GOP didn't hold the independents. It's that simple.

WRONG. At least here in MD, the base did not come out on the eastern shore and in western Md.
Lets not forget a lot of dems in the south and mid west ran as conservatives. I know what will happen when they get to DC...they will be socialists. But they fooled enough people.

Fox News has had the same exact thing...

Did they? Interesting.
Still, I prefer to watch Fox over CNN.
Much as I prefer fresh bread to day old bread.
The difference is in the flavor and texture.

I think you are waaaaay too generously shortsighted, it will be "sucicide" for ALL of us! They don't want to drill Anwar, but they don't want to defend our foreign oil supply? You figure it out. Any way you choose to look at it, its not a pretty picture.

As some other FReeper said already, "hold on to your wallet"!

Meanwhile, we'll all just pray there is something left to "fix", when the Republicans "get back on track", according to your standards. Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.

I've never understood the "we gotta give it all away so we can get it back" mentality. What a rationalization!

What? I did no such thing. My district elected a closed-borders conservative, one of the top Club For Growth candidates, yesterday. He is one of the very small GOP freshman class of '07.

Don't blame me if the rest of you fail to persuade your neighbors to vote correctly. You're the ones who dropped the ball.

Oh, then they will be punished for sitting out the election. They'll learn. Morons.

Lets not forget a lot of dems in the south and mid west ran as conservatives. I know what will happen when they get to DC...they will be socialists.

Some of them are Blue Dogs. Zell Miller types. And they don't owe anything to the Clintons or Pelosi. In fact, Pelosi is catering to that bunch, having recruited them and funded them. She gets Speaker for the effort but they ain't walkin' the plank for Comrade Pelosi's leftist ideas. And some of them, like Jim Webb, make no bones about hating the Clintonization of their party.

One of the most interesting things I saw last night was John Breaux. He said almost nothing but looked very very satisfied. He seemed to me to be silently celebrating the resurgence of the old culturally conservative populist Southern Dems. Can't blame him, it's been lonely for guys like him and Zell Miller in D.C.

Not all of these new Dims are Pelosicrats.

Don't get too cocky. You simply got lucky on your 3rd try. You doom and gloomers blew it in 2002, blew it in 2004 and can be relied upon to blow it again in 2008. This time the cycle just happened to work out for you. Considering how well Conservative ballot issues did aroiund the country simply amazing how many stupid Conservative 100%ers just cut off their political nose to spite their face today. The Always Angry types just turned DC over to the Amnesty NOW crowd and fired the ONLY people fighting FOR their point of view on Immigration. Way to go. Talk about your Phyric Victories! Way to go idiots. I will enjoy reminding you all for the next two years when you start squealing about what the Democrat Congress is doing to you, how you all spent 2005 and 2006 squealing about "winning by losing". You political 100%er made your bed. I will enjoy making you lie in it.

Have you been taking lessons from John Kerry in how to admit you were wrong? I see. If you had been right, you would be a genius, but when I was right I was just lucky.

CONSERVATIVE ALERT!!!

We have GOT to get control of the MEDIA!!!!!!

The only reason we lost yesterday is the incessant drumbeat of lies, halftruths and other distortions being pumped into society daily!

(Oh yeah.... we gotta get the SCHOOLS back, too!)

The Education/Intertainment industry has to be turned around or it's all over when the NEXT batch of voters come along!

This was no skirmish.
It was a defeat of the first order.
Six years squandered.
This administration has succeeded in making big government and socialism acceptable to "conservatives" and the populace in general.
What else would explain the exit poll interviews of voters saying they believe the RATS are better on taxes.
Worse, there are no leaders in the wings on the Republican side even worth considering for president.
There has been a woeful lack of preparation for 2008.
McCain! McCain! McCain? Puke.

sorry for posting so late in the game, but politics is not a game when the future of the country, its direction and who is in the drivers seat is at stake... this is the problem of why politics are as devisive as they are and it's because they are treated like a game rather than serious business... this notion of politics must stop here and now if the conservative message is to have any meaning at all...

.... and if my grandmother had wheels she'd be a trolley car...

Idealism is a great thing... however it is not always an effective thing. Your attitude is one of the reasons that we conservatives continue to lose. You are like this one voice in a stadium of 100,000 screaming fans saying..." The game shouldnt be played like this, the game shouldnt be played like this..."
That is all well and good however it will do nothing to change the system. Like it or not politics is a game and if you want to change that system you better get in control of the ball. Conservatives got into the game for control of the ball and we did several things to lose. One is we allowed a weak quarterback to be in control of the senate. Second Those that came to us with promises and request for donations already new conservatives would not use their muscle politically to keep their elected on track. So all they have to do is set up the football like lucy and yank it away with the " we will get forgiveness rather than permission" philosophy. Third Our own moral standards inhibit us from playing as hard as we can in this game.

Face it, most conservatives are not willing to do underhanded things to get their way politically because we live by moral standards that guide our lives. Liberals and socialists are not controled by anything so they are more than willing to lie, cheat,steal,and blackmail to get their way. Thus you have an opposing team that brings brass knuckles and broken bottles to a queensberry rules fight. And we are always suprised when they draw blood.

Additionally, and you saw this in congress, conservatives do not have the identity as "leaders". So the democrats play on that lack of identity as a weekness, calling our elected, meanspirited, racist, and they fold to their demands because they dont want to appear as that. This is a common act of someone that does not have an identity of a leader. Instead of saying, "call me what you want, but this is the direction that I am going because this is who we are", they assume whatever someone calls them could be taken as the truth so they blow over like a tree without roots.

The long and short of this Methadras is that you can scream and kick and say " this notion of politics must stop here and now if the conservative message is to have any meaning at all.." or you can say," by God we are going to get these issues passes regardless who we have to kill, abuse, bludeon, or rape politically"

That is the game, ( not agreeing or condoning it, it just is) play it or leave.
