I understand that no one will ever meet your pristine standards of perfection, Man.

And because of that, should you get your way (you won't), Obama and the Marxists will rule the country for the rest of our days on earth.

I am SO thankful that you're only on the internet typing words, and not a real threat to the Republic. There are countless conservative Republicans working their tails off and donating huge sums of money to get conservative Republicans elected. WE are the people who will get rid of Obama.

Some day you should thank us. :)

Look, if you really want to control these folks, PUT SOME DECENT PEOPLE IN THE HOUSE, where the Founders, in their wisdom, PUT THE KEYS TO THE CASH REGISTER. NO FUNDING, NO GARBAGE PROGRAMS AND SPENDING.

Gosh, here are two of them now:

TWO solid congressional candidates who warrant your consideration and support. Even if you live elsewhere, ALL these folks are involved with legislation that impacts YOUR LIFE. If you doubt that, do the names Pelosi, Reid, Frank, Schumer, etc. ring any bells?

CHRISTINA JEFFREY from the SC 4th

WEBSITE: http://christinajeffrey.com

DOCTOR BERT LOFTMAN is running for the House from the 9th District of Georgia.

WEBSITE: http://loftmanforcongress.com/LoftmanForCongress/HOME.html

Visit their sites and if you agree that they would be good folks to have in D.C., sent a contribution and spread the word to others who might do the same.

We’ve left things to the career politicians for too long. If things continue as they are, there will be NOWHERE TO HIDE

Yes. Where does that leave their stance against Sarah if Hayworth will support McCain as well? He’s already said he would.

“She ran with a RINO. She campaigns for a RINO.

Put your thinking caps on.”

She is really between a rock and a hard place. She would still be an unknown in Wasilla but for JMcC but her political views are much closer, AFAICT, to JD.

What to do...what to do?

I suspect JMcC will make some stupid comment which will cause her to switch or become neutral!

It seems like a half of those posting on this site seem to to be an expert on who a “perfect conservative” is, or who a “perfect Freeper” is ...

We should listen to our fellow “perfect conservative Freepers”, as they are correct always ... and we are NEVER right.

With all the political strategists here these days ... I just don’t understand how we are the minority party.

Your arrogance and defensiveness is astonishing. THIS type of response is the very reason we as conservatives drive people away from our party. Would it surprise you to know that I do not now nor have I ever supported Sarah Palin’s political aspirations? ALL I said was I agreed with Rush’s assessment. End of story.

Unless I’ve missed something, Sarah’s support for McCain seems pretty low-key. My guess is she’ll do the minimum to fulfill whatever promise she made to him early on, then get outta Dodge.

I didn't say it would hurt Palin. A black mark is just that!

Btw, you need to get your facts straight. Richard Schweiker was a Pro-Life Republican, champion of the unborn and one of the first supporters of a Pro-Life amendment to the Constitution. Schweiker was a moderate-liberal Republican in the 1960`s and the first half of the 1970`s. Thanks to his association with Reagan, Schweiker eventually became a conservative with an ACU rating of 79 in 1978, 88 in 1979 and 85 in 1980.

According to Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, Richard Schweiker was instrumental in getting a Pro-Life plank in the Republican Party Platform. THus making the GOP, America's Pro-Life party.

"Ever since Ronald Reagan embraced a prospective pro-life running mate in 1976 in the person of Sen. Richard Schweiker (R-Pa.), the party of Lincoln has positioned itself as a champion of human life in the womb." ~ Tony Perkins LINK

JD said he would endorse McCain if he loses the primary, does that mean that JD is also a RINO and we shouldn’t support him?

You got a good point. This politics stuff is slightly more complicated than a ball game.

Rush did not defend Palin, he explained why she endorced McCain...

Oh silly you, to the Palin bashers, this is proof positive that Rush now endorses McCain...........

Here, try this:

Rush explains Palin's decision, Palin endorses McCain, McCain supported amnesty for illegals. Therefore Rush also supports illegal immigration regardless of what he's said in the past.......

1+1+1 = 3 You can't deny logic..........

Rush was pretty explicit in saying he’s not defend her or criticizing her but stating what he thinks she is doing. If you want to complain then I suppose your complaint is with the fact that he said that her decision doesn’t in anyway change his view of her because to him, it’s all about policy

I’m sure she’d rather Hayworth win ...

I completely agree with that. My personal dream with regard to this primary race between McQueeg and Hayworth, is that McQueeg (or wife/daughter) does something so stupid, so postal, that he gives Sarah the wide opening, huge fat pitch, to say "you know what, John has stepped over the line so much with _______ that I need to withdraw my endorsement ....."

We ALL know that McQueeg (or daughter) is more than capable of a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part...and John, you're just the guy to do it!

mj, your example, while a lil blasphemous is really spot on...

so Mrs Palin is only a national figure because of mcqueeg, so shes beholdin to that evil sob to 'dance' with him, when there are candidates in the field who would 'represent' her policies more accurately ???

political expediency [for selfish needs] and lack of conviction are the problems with this system of human governance in the first place, glad she showed her cards this early...

i think we have truly come to a place where there is no possible way to enter major league politics without selling out, lest youre cornered and ineffective...at that point, no amount of voting for politicians is gonna reverse the ship...

I understand that no one will ever meet your pristine standards of perfection, Man.

You have a very loose definition of pristine if you consider endorsing someone who supports amnesty for illegals, the socialist bailout, cap and tax, abortion as close to perfect.

BO/BS and his marxist cronies are in power now because the OP(formerly the GOP) put voters in the position of choosing between two socialists.

I am SO thankful that you're only on the internet typing words, and not a real threat to the Republic.

Interesting you consider demanding a return to the strong conservative principles upon which our founding fathers wrote the Constitution instead of further capitulating to the big tent mentality McAmnesty represents as a threat.

There are countless conservative Republicans working their tails off and donating huge sums of money to get conservative Republicans elected. WE are the people who will get rid of Obama.

Your party had decades of opportunity to rid the country of socialism instead the OP incrementally embraced it and the counter to your malfeasance is the Conservative tea party movement. The OP helped BO/BS obtain power.

“Her first moves as governor was to clear out the “good old boys network”.”

Sounds like the action of a feminist, actually.

If you had read her book, you would know that "the good old boys network", actually called themselves the "Corrupt Bastards Club". And even had golf shirts and I think even hats made up with CBC on them!

Corrupt AND arrogant!

So your solution then is????

That no one with integrity (like Sarah Palin) should enter politics and that we should leave the country in the hands of the wolves because of a few unpleasantries??

What is the answer, in your esteemed opinion?

btw, you correctly called that "blaspheme" thing. Your buddy does it often, and it should concern you if you care about him.

Right on Rush! Preach it baby! :-)

You remember how upset everybody got at George W. Bush back when Specter was still a Republican, was running in the primary against Pat Toomey, and Specter was a Republican disaster, but Bush is out there endorsing him and raising money and I think he did a couple campaign appearances, and people: “What the hell is this? Why didn’t he get behind Toomey? Where are the conservatives?” It is a problem in a lot of people’s views. This is just how parties work.

...

This is why, folks, the tea party movement must stay oriented on reclaiming the Republican Party and not going third party, but reclaiming it, and then establishing a new set of principles here that rewards conservatism first, foremost, and down the line.

...

There’s this new group of Republicans called the Mount Vernon group, and they’re coming out with position papers on stuff. The Republican Party is fighting the tea party people now for control of the party, there’s a big battle going on. And I think personally four or five of these very prominent members of this Mount Vernon group said, “I’m not joining if the social issues are going to be part of our mission statement, I don’t want any part of it,” meaning they don’t want this party having a thing to say about any social issue, not just abortion, but anything else that’s cultural. They want it to remain fiscal and political only, not cultural. So the battle is going to be raging. And I hate to put words in Sarah Palin’s mouth because I’m just guessing and I’m neither defending nor criticizing, I’m just observing and I think I understand why she’s doing this. I don’t think in her mind she has a choice. She wouldn’t be who she is, she wouldn’t have all of this opportunity in front of her had McCain not chosen her. So this is the obligatory payback and I think after this it’s over.

nor should she compromise her principles as “pay back” for a failed RINO run as VP.

Exactly. If it is alright for her to compromise her principles, including that she will only support "common sense conservatives", because of her need to "pay back" McCain, what other principles are we to expect she will compromise if she deems other "pay backs" necessary?

You misread and deliberately misinterpret, Man.

You are not a threat because you have no power to stop the conservatives who actually want to WIN from doing so. It is not because of Constitutional principles. We conservative Republicans have them as well. It is because of the very real world we live in and the fact that the only way that we can defeat Obama is through conservatives who run as Republicans. Sarah knows that, and that's most likely why you don't like her.

You can be as frustrated as you want with the reality of the political world, but dismissing one of the most conservative possibilites we have because she does a few things you don't like, is self-defeating.

I don't know about you, but I want Obama, the Marxist traitor OUT of there. And I'm going to do whatever I can to make that happen.

Our party is reviving, and even though that bugs you, we are the people who will get the traitors out of power.

(And I, along with millions of other conservative Republicans, am an active part of the Tea Party movement. Take conservative Republicans out of the movement, and it collapses into an impotent minority).

You were saying ...

For those of us belonging to the Christian faith, if the Archangel Gabriel were to this very day appear in the Heavens above us, and announce that our Lord and Master Jesus Christ loved, respected and intended to support the fallen angel formerly known as Lucifer, for ‘all’ have fallen short of the Glory of God and are in need of redemption, who among us would dare to say ‘the Lord can’t DO that!!!’?

No, I wouldn't say to the Lord, "You can't do that!"... I would say to the imposter who is claiming to speak for the Lord... "You're not the Lord! You're a deceiving and evil angel!" ... LOL...

That's because the Lord has already let me know how to recognize Him and what He's going to do...

Matthew Chapter 24

23 Then if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!' or 'There!'
do not believe it.

24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs
and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.

25 See, I have told you beforehand.

26 Therefore if they say to you, 'Look, He is in the desert!' do not go
out; or 'Look, He is in the inner rooms!' do not believe it.

27 For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so
also will the coming of the Son of Man be.



Revelation Chapter 20

9 They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of
the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of
heaven and devoured them.

10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and
brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be
tormented day and night forever and ever.

All you gotta know is what the Lord said in the Bible... :-)

If they ever get more than 1% in a primary, or get some actual executive experience, I'm sure Rush would support them.

Sorry, it's not possible at this point, neither of them have much hope of growing any kind of major support.

You were saying ...

Palin is a Republican. She will work within the party status quo. She will not work within the status quo if she becomes President.

Amen to that, and I support her 100% in how she determines is the best course of action to get to the White House... :-)

You misread and deliberately misinterpret, Man.

1. McAmnesty supports the socialist bailout, cap and tax and abortion just to name a few socialist positions.

2. Palin supports McAmnesty

3. Palin's endorsement is tantamount to condoning his positions.

Nothing to misinterpret there. Just plain hard facts.

You are not a threat because you have no power to stop the conservatives who actually want to WIN from doing so.

You're right. I'm not a threat to Conservatives since I am a supporter. Socialist McAmnesty and anyone who endorses him or anyone who tries to rationalize such an association is the threat.

It is because of the very real world we live in and the fact that the only way that we can defeat Obama is through conservatives who run as Republicans.

Why didn't you and your fellow OPers stop socialism years ago before it produced politicians like McAmnesty, Grahamnesty, Snowe, Collins etc...?

You can be as frustrated as you want with the reality of the political world, but dismissing one of the most conservative possibilites we have because she does a few things you don't like, is self-defeating.

Who would that be? It certainly isn't Palin when she is endorsing a socialist like McAmnesty.

I don't know about you, but I want Obama, the Marxist traitor OUT of there. And I'm going to do whatever I can to make that happen.

Great! Then don't support those who only pretend to be Conservatives.

Our party is reviving, and even though that bugs you, we are the people who will get the traitors out of power.

Your "party" is trying to ride the wave of the Tea party movement. Again, you had the opportunity to rid socialists from your party long ago but failed.

Take conservative Republicans out of the movement, and it collapses into an impotent minority).

The OP elite caused its collapse long ago by removing Conservatism from the OP to appease the socialist left in order to expand the voter base.
