“The GOP is waiting for their base to blink. They trust that pubs will come back bacause of ‘06.”

They’re in for another surprise.

Amazing all these so called troop supporting conservatives doing exactly what Hillary wants them to.

Why don’t you just vote for her?

Sorry spitting in our troops faces is hardly conservative.

Sorry voting for Hillary which this is in fact doing is not being conservative.

This time around, if we end up with a Dim President, I am convinced that the Republicans will block all substantial legislation, and any dangerously liberal appointments during the Dim’s WH adventure.
-

what republicans will be there to block anything if all the republican voters stay home?

Hillary 0
Rudy 1
McCain 2
Huckabee 3
Romney 4
Fred/Hunter 8

I would change the McCain number to 3 and Huckabee to 2. Also I would give Romney a 6. Otherwise your list is perfect.

For all Freepers who plan to stay home on election day to teach the GOP a lesson!

what's the diff between Hilary and RINO's.

Nothing except the ease with which gun control, higher taxes, and stabbing our troops in the back all in the name of "bipartisanship" that Rudy, Romney, Elmer Gantry Huckabee and McIdiot will shove down the throat of any conservative Republicans.

When the dems control the White House then they'll have to actually "do something" like the did with congress this time.... Nothing.

Last Clinton we had in office we got welfare reform, NAFTA, congress, state legislatures, senate and governorships went Republican, and by shorting the pharmaceutical stocks I made a mint.

If a Republican is the president we'll get stabbed in the back. At least we've got an enemy in our face to fight.

Before you flame away, take this little tidbit. It's a free country, I CHOOSE NOT to vote for someone that doesn't represent my views. That's why it's called a representative democracy. I'll NEVER vote for another RINO after Gov. Nice Hair Perry.... (former democrat, as usual)

Thompson, Hunter or Hilary..... I guess for the RINO's

However, if my fellow Republicans decide to nominate McCain or Huckabee, we part company.

I just can’t vote for Huckabee or McCain, Rudy..etc

I’m ticked off that the republican party has become the party of Rinos. Why should I vote for them and give them support if they are moving left? The Rinos gave us the amnesty fiasco and the cozying up to Ted Kennedy.

Thompson is my first choice then Hunter. If the GOP can’t promote a good conservative but only offer liberals then they can count me out.

She attained her seat with the overwhelming vote of the rinos in the Senate... We have no party left... just tattered shreds and a decaying House that Reagan built. You liberals split this party and now try to blame the reality of your actions on Conservatives. Without Conservatism putting socialism in check... we become Europe. It is up to the liberals in the GOP to come home to the base... Read the GOP platform... it is the opposite of mcromneyhuck. I am disgusted... Reagan looks down upon us and weeps.

That Hillary is such a liar. problem is most of them are liars on both sides.

Her lying is a little more repulsive than the others though.

Fox makes me sick. They know the election is already decided on both sides.

It is ridiculous isn't it. The GOP since late 1995 has been AWOL and about as effective as bucket of gasoline putting out a fire against the Dems. The GOP has been dumbed down and Liberaled Down to about the lowest common denominator. The end result is two liberal parties now controlling our nation. Worse are those using Animal Farm scare tactics to make certain no honest change can ever occur.

The ones screaming loudest you better not sit home or a vote for someone is a vote for Hillary each and every time are supporters of the most Liberal GOP candidates. I wonder why that is? If the GOP looses in November {and it looks like it is cruising for a loosing yet once again} it will be because once again the gullible bought into the only a Liberal all inclusive FREAK can win. Voters that stupid deserve to loose.

and why do you think the illegal problem is much worse since that bill was passed? It was a mistake. But I don’t believe in burying Reagan or Bush or anyone who has at least some conservative principles.

Rudy and Ron Paul are the exceptions because one betrays life and the other betrays our troops and those things are not negotiable.

For all GOPers who want to earn votes through threats - don’t gas your own people! That was Saddam’s mistake (well, in hindsight, after we got mad at him, it was one of the mistakes).

I seem to have digressed. Earn my vote, GOP! Do something no one expects you to have the gonards to do - be a magnificant bastard for one bright shining moment and make us proud. Then we will vote for you, yea, in droves.

If the best the conservative party can do is McCain, Huckabee or Mitt it deserves to wither and be replaced.

It would have been interesting to have had internet chat back in 1856 and 1860 and read poster’s comments about those tumultuous times during the demise of the Whig Party.

Alas, Algore was born a century late.

I realize you put being a conservative above being an American

No, because I am an American, I value many conservative principles.

If you're willing to vote Republican no matter what the candidate values, then you are putting the Republican Party 'above being an American'. So you can just throw your sophomoric insults right back at yourself.

Teaching the GOP a lesson has nothing to do with it.

I just need a conservative nominee to vote for. And with Hunter and Thompson sucking hind tit in NH, I don’t see one.

Honestly, Paul is the most Constitutionally faithful candidate with any shred of support. How sad is that?

And there you have it! I agree completely. I think McCain is truly crazy (and should not be in charge of the football!). Gulliani will allow the killing of babies, take my guns and keep the borders open. Huckabee will raise my taxes and who knows what else (he covered for his mentally ill, creepy son). Romney is just too slick and has flip-flopped so much that I don't know what he really stands for.

That comes down to only two...Hunter and Thompson. I have NO PROBLEM voting for either one.

Interesting overheard chat among five 16 yr. old boys:

Hey dude who do you want to win for President?
They tossed around Clinton..that was a no
Obama...consensus was a he seems like a cool dude.

Huckabee: He wouldn’t be too bad, he’s basically a Democrat anyway.
Scary when 16yr olds think this, I almost choked when I heard it.

The lone republican kid says: What about Fred Thompson?
They all looked at him like he had two heads. But he’s a republican. Lone republican kid: Yeah he’s the man.
They asked what made him the man. He responded with the tale of Fred not raising his hand at the Iowa debate. They were all impressed, and decide to give him a look. (They just love the rebel.)
Keep in mind these are 16yr olds with hardly a clue. But I will bet its what lesser informed voters base their opinions on too. And its pretty bad when kids think that a GOP candidate is basically a Democrat.

Where did you get the idea that 'all the republican voters stay home'?

If the Republican nominee isn't a conservative, many will be voting, but leaving blank the President block. That's what I might be doing, because I will be voting for my Senator Jim Inhofe, as well as other conservative Republicans, including my Representative John Sullivan.

Mr. Sullivan had some contrary opinions early on in his first term, but many of us wrote and called him, and he actually turned around and became much mo' betta. He is a conservative, but he was confused about two or three issues in the beginning.

As long as we have at least 41 mostly-conservative Republicans in the Senate, we can block the Dims. That's IF conservative Americans continue to blast them with Emails, letters and phone calls to keep them in line.

I try to hold on to my loyalties, and even though FOX was changing before my eyes-(for the worse), I still thought it was 'the conservative network'...

...Shutting out Hunter from the debate did it for me....eyes wide open.

I don't/won't watch it now.

I didn't leave the Republican Party.....it left me.

I didn't leave George Bush....he left me.

I didn't leave FOX....they left me.

Like Hunter said the other day, CNN is looking a little better...at least they have Glenn Beck and HE HAS Duncan Hunter on quite often....and speaks very well of him.

It's never wrong to be trusting, but when/if you find out you've placed your trust in the wrong person/place/institution.....don't keep making the same mistake.

if there is a general feeling that the GOP isn’t worth voting for, some will vote for the other races but I guarantee many will just not bother. It will be really bad if Hillary wins and I don’t see a Newt that will turn things around after 2 years.

Besides, even if the GOP wins the next midterms, it won’t change the fact that our national security will be ripped to shreds.

If Rudy, Huckabee or Paul win the nomination, I’m staying home.

If Mitt or McCain wins it, I’ll vote, choking with nausea.

If Fred or Hunter wins it, I’ll vote happily.

Sorry, but that’s the way it’s going to be. The first 3 will do even more damage than Hillary will. Hillary’s liberal policies will at least be fought tooth and nail by the minority of conservatives who will at least be capable of filibusters. If it’s one of the 3 RINOs, -no- one will fight them.

“Honestly, Paul is the most Constitutionally faithful candidate with any shred of support.”

The past 45 years has shown an ideological/political shift away from the Founding Father’s values/doctrines to the point where they are no longer even taught in school. Each successive generation moves farther and farther away from what used to be an almost innate consciousness of freedom and liberty.

Now it’s all bread and circuses courtesy of both democrat and republican elected officials. IMO, we are witnessing the end times of a political experiment that was birthed 231 years ago.

Wasn’t it Ben Franklin who said we have a republic, “if we can keep it”?
