Skip to comments.The GOP has left me.

I am really getting sick of the "Whiny Bitch" wing of the GOP blaming its conservative base for losing control of both houses and now undermining the party further by not continuing to fund or vote for a more slow descent into socialism. This shows a complete lack of integrity on their part.
I for one refuse to vote for a Democrat, even when they call themselves a Republican, no especially when they call themselves a Republican. In fact, I would vote for a Democrat before I would a RINO because they at least have the integrity to admit to what they are. I for damned sure refuse to give them any campaign contributions when they have demonstrated that they can't manage the tax dollars they collect in the trillions.
Ronald Reagan, who began as a Democrat, once said he didn't leave the Democrat party, it left him. Me withholding my votes and financial support for the Republican Party isn't because I have changed political philosophy or party affiliation. I am withholding my votes and supports because the Republican Party has morphed into the Democrat Party.
The Whiny Bitch wing will say that there is no alternative and that not voting means that the Democrat Party (the old one that has now morphed into the Socialist Party) will prevail. The Democrat Party, or at least its principles, is prevailing anyway. One only need look at the actual status of Secure borders, immigration reform, government spending, balance of trade, energy self-sufficiency, whacko environmentalism, and voter fraud to see this.
If the GOP doesn't right itself will fade to irrelevance and will be replaced by a conservative party. When either of these two options happen I will again break out the check book and resume voting. Until then I will refrain.
Just trying to make some sense out of what I see on FR, brother. Oh well!
Chuck Lidell let me down. Jackson will be a good champ, though.
OK. Now you have a data chart. Pick your start date as to when the ‘American People’ started to care about maintaining ‘divided government’ and then calculate the percentages.
The key of course is determining when the electorate became politically ‘aware’ and wanted to prevent single-party control of the Federal Government.
So when is your ‘start’ date?
Stick around Natural Law...
You’ll be happy to have a strong conservative voice like Fred Thompson advocating genuine conservatism.
Like I said, in a range where 100 is fruit loopy liberal, 0 is moderate, and +100 is cocopuff conservative, I think a majority instinctively rates at about a +10 or +15 or so. Though that can range between -25 and +25. Right now, it's hard to figure, but I think they are at -5 or so.
If we didn't have terrorist bad guys around, it might be at -15.
Fully absorbed - now what about the other 90% of us?
Could've fooled me.
He's referring to the Bircheresque wing of radicals on the far far right.
ROFL. Let me guess - they ride pickup trucks with Confederate flags on them, looking for minorities to harm too right?
I understand that fine. It's just that the nuttiest 3% has no moral right to jack things up for the other 97%.
Thank you, Melas. You are right, of course.
The more liberal the GOP leadership becomes, the less conservatives are going to respond to that threat. Scare tactics go only so far, and given recent events I'm not sure your message is going to resonate with anyone. The GOP had better start figuring out how to get people to vote FOR its politicians instead of trying to demonize the Dems.
I can understand claiming that "jacking things up" is shortsighted, counterproductive, etc. But "no moral right"? Who are you trying to kid? Individuals are under no moral obligation to support a candidate simply because others happen to do so.
And we've "had our feet on their necks for too long."
Apparently you fail to recognize that the party in power at the sixth year have lost seats in Congress since the FDR administration. That's what I was referring to.
A picture says a thousand words “ ha, ha, ha, ha, we fu#@ed them again”! Dispicable humans!
I’m sorry if I didn’t make myself clear. All i meant to say was that a cocopuff conservative fringe or fruit loopy liberal fringe have no moral authority to screw up everyone else.
Has nothing to do with supporting candidates. It has to do with an overstatement of their policy positions, and a complete disregard for everyone else.
Frankly the more excited the FR becomes about a candidate, the more likely the moderate independents become nervous. I don't like it but I think that is the current state of the electorate.
Count me in with you. The Ronald Reagan quote has stuck in my mind all day.
I voted for GW twice, working very hard for him in ‘04. After he was elected he said he would use his political capital.
I just didn’t know until this week that he would use it against me.
So, he’s the enemy now. He has failed to discharge his duties as the Chief Executive and to enforce immigration laws. He has an idiot like Chertoff, who oversees border agents like the one on the Canadian border, who thinks he is a medical doctor and lets in a Typhoid Mary type without even consulting a supervisor. ICE can’t handle 50,000 legal immigrants a year, how the hell are they going to handle 12-20 million new visa applications and track them for 13 years. They are out of their minds!!!
So, no one can accuse me of being disloyal. I stayed on the train as long as I could. But I’m done now.
He’s made his stand. And I’m making mine.
I called the White House contact line today and told the screener that GW needs to get a copy of the Wall Street Journal and read Peggy Noonan’s column today. That’s how I feel.
In NJ, I saw how the liberal RINOs systematically shut out conservative Republicans, until now NJ will forever be Democratic. Now, the RNC is doing the same thing o n a national basis.
Unless Fred Thompson or Duncan Hunter get the Republican nod next year, they are doomed as a party. Two terms of Hillary Clinton, an arch criminal, will spell the end of our Republic, unless a second American Revolution takes place.
If they’re stupid enough to jump off the political cliff, then I’m going to let them. They don’t care about me. And I’m tired of being used time after time by the Republicans and getting nothing in return.
When I moved to Delaware last year, I changed my registration to Independent from Republican.
Now we are involved in a fight for our very nation. And we can’t slack off until this legislation is deader than a dorrnail.
Being blamed for not doing what’s right for America, is the last straw.
But your post said nothing about the ‘sixth year’ losses. It said mid-term losses. Every president has at least one mid-term election; only two term presidents have a second mid-term election.
Did I miss your ‘sixth year’ or ‘second mid-term’ election?
My point stands.
