Skip to comments.Long live the TEA party rebellion!! NO MORE RINOS!! NO ROMNEY, NO WAY!!
Posted on 10/16/2011 2:06:44 PM PDT by Jim Robinson
The TEA (Taxed Enough Already) party sprang up in spontaneous rebellion to big government's big spending, big taxing ways. TARP, the bailouts, the PORKULUS package and ObamaCare lit the fuse. TEA partiers support the constitution's limited government restrictions. TEA partiers are non-partisan, i.e., we oppose the big government, big spending, big taxing moves of both the major political parties.
This is an open rebellion against business as usual big spending, overreaching government! We demand a return to constitutionally limited government!!
The socialist/progressive Democrat party is our natural enemy and they understand that and attack us accordingly.
The big government RINO socialist/progressive wing of the Republican party is also our natural enemy and they attack us accordingly. They fear us, but they NEED us. They despise us, spit on us, call us right-wing extremists and hateful bigots, but beg us for our votes. They EXPECT us to bend over in the end and willingly accept their BIG GOVERNMENT candidates and programs without any real opposition.
Oh, they may try to sugar coat it a bit, and placate us here and there with some smooth talk, and toss us a bone from time-to-time with conservative head feints, but it's clear they have no intention of ever changing their evil progressive ways.
The progressive wing of the GOP does not really comprehend that the TEA party rebellion is aimed squarely at THEM!!
They believe that we have nowhere else to go and that fear of an Obama second term will compel us to vote for a Republican version of BIG GOVERNMENT, big spending, big taxing, constitution ignoring progressive liar of a candidate.
Got news for them.
The TEA party rebellion is made up of tens of millions of liberty-loving, patriotic citizens who are totally fed up with corrupt, lying, two-faced, smooth-talking, big government socialists, corrupt crony capitalist bastard, progressives, Marxists, etc, and it makes no difference to us which party they belong to. And we're madder than hell and loaded for bear!!
This is OPEN REBELLION at the ballot box!!
TEA party hating elite establishment, Romney, Rove & Co., had best get used to it. Your any RINO but Obama gig is up!!
The TEA party is here to stay and we're NOT going to vote for your big government, TARP pushing, PORKULUS pushing, RomneyCare pushing, gun-grabbing, abortionist, gay-rights pushing, global warming advocating, mandate-loving, anti-Reagan, anti-liberty, socialist/progressive, flavor of the day RINO, the chief architect and advocate of ObamaCare, Mitt Romney!!
TEA partiers unite against Obama/Romney!!
The progressive GOP be damned!!
Long live the Republic!!

In a nutshell, yup. Conservatives are the battered wives of American politics.
Well, surrender your own ass to the RINOS, but you’re not surrendering mine!! No Romney, no way!! Not on FR!! Not on my watch!!
What is seriously wrong with you ? you used to be incredibly nice and wonderful to interact with ?
Did you ever watch the clip of Herman Cain on MSNBC being interviewed by Lawrence O’Donnell. It was nasty liberal tactics as always, but Cain went right through the attacks methodicaly and kept his sense of humor.
“I dont want Romney to get the nomination but if he does get the nomination, we all need to work to get him elected.”
Not a chance. I’m done voting for the lesser of two evils. It’s still a vote for evil.
You’re supposed to deal with it and move on. You must be pretty damned old because your skin is paper thin.
When McCain was the nominee in 2008 did you vote for him? I didn’t. He was worse than a RINO. He was a traitor.
You best knock off your little slams SOYC or I’m going to copy all of your little freepmails and post them on an open thread.
Now I think we can officially say that I do not want to hear from your whiny ass again. mmmmmm k?
Cain is the man of the hour!
No Romney, no RINOS, no BS-Beltway-corrupt-bastard-incumbents either!
Tea Party Rebellion! YOU BETCHA... at the ballot box, beginning with the earliest primary states!
BE THERE TO VOTE OR BE SCREWED!
Yeah, I voted for Palin not McCain and even so, I won’t make that mistake again.
And I’m going to tell you very plainly so even a dummie can understand it. If you want to push Romney, that’s your business, but FR is mine and you’re not going to push him here! Take your Romney pushing elsewhere. May I suggest BigGovernmentMandateLovingRINO_Wankers_R_Us.com?
It sure does feel like the “fix” is in to annoint Mitt with Christie and Arizona Sheriff Babeu endorsing him last week.
Maybe the time is nearing to draft a Tea Party candidate and go around the GOP establishment.
If you are dead set against Cain feel free to go somewhere else and complain. Maybe someone somehwere else will give you some cheese with your Whine.

Do you suppose that you guys could transfer your personal squabbles to private FReepMail, and leave the public thread to the topic JimRob started? I'm getting tired of having to read around you guys throwing poo at each other, to find the useful on-topic comments. That stuff doesn't belong on this thread, for that matter, on this forum. I'll save you the trouble of going to the Mods, I'll do it here. Thanks.
You stated in your first post that you didn't want another President leading with a racial boulder on his shoulder. Cain never once brought up race pre-emptively. He brought it up to counter attacks - which you state yourself in the above quote. This demonstrates someone who wont take sh^t lying down and who doesn't pull the race card on the front end as an easy way out. Which of those two qualities do you not like?
Your statement about Cain leaving Godfathers in worse shape is just pure BS. Cain took over GF in 1986. It was, at the time a literal dog with fleas - hemorraging cash and losing substantial amounts annualy. It was, at the time a divison of Pillsbury. In a year and a half, he slimmed the operation to just over 400 PROFITABLE stores and then personally led a group of investors to a leveraged purchase of the chain from Pillsbury. His work at GF was basically brilliant. Just like his work at BK in Philly - where he took the worst performing division of 400 stores to the most profitable. Get your facts straight or shut up.
Great post Jim. Hopefully this site can be cleaned of the pro-Romney zealots.
I am dead set against Cain. Don’t plan on going anywhere. No cheese with my ‘whine’ needed. If you can’t discern facts and anecdotes about the man, that’s your problem, not mine.
Suit yourself. Three years ago, I refused to vote for RINO McCain and raked over the coals around here for it.
So, if anything, I'm already ahead of some of you here. But we now know how truly destructive Obama is and I can't, in good conscience, give him four more years. If I have to hold my nose twice, I will, but if I don't vote for the Republican nominee, whomever he is, I will be voting for four more years or Obama and, in my mind, that is the ultimate evil.
That’s all well and good but when I’m attacked in an open forum after stating an opinion, I will not stand down.
That makes two of us.
The fact that your listening to NPR radio should automatically disqualify you from commenting on this.
That right is funny! ROFL :D
Sorry. I have to agree with JR on this.
I will never again hold my nose and vote for a stinking RINO.
But you go ahead and live in a vacuum.
I did not like Cain’s little story either because it just seemed...
2. Like he was condescending to the civil disobedience crowd.
I would advise him to avoid talking about race at all costs. He’ll never get endorsed by Ebony or Jet or the NAACP.
Still I like HC. Sarah was my first choice and eyeing the field now it looks to me like Cain is as conservative as any of them except Michele and she has been sorta flat lately.
Anyway, I'm only objecting to the nasty personal attacks, not any opinion on the thread topic. I expect FR threads to be a lively exchange of opinions. Just look at JimRob's opening salvo -- that was plenty lively! You guys want to tear into each other over politics, have at. But tearing each other apart as human beings is unworthy of FR. IMO.
So thats your deal? Anyone not wanting to abandon principle is an Obama voter?
Yup, I voted McCain to get Palin. That was my LAST time doing that. I learned my lesson.
Tell the Boss there’s no hope for him either. I’m sick of you “Sure I’ll vote Romney” types. Stand for something or stand for nothing.
I stand for something and if the rest of America is too stupid to buy a clue, I’ll sit back and watch Utopia burn...because that’s just what it will deserve.
Remember how I asked you to rally the troops (well, me anyways) one time, and that inspired a great message on your part?
Your best contributions are written. You serve as the 'colors' around which we rally. Keep on keepin on, brother.
Romney is not the same as Obama.
Romney is worse than Obama.
The enemy within is always worse than the enemy outside. The enemy within gains your trust and then stabs you in the back by betraying you to the enemy outside.
It’s one of my favorites :-)
Well being dead set against Cain, you deserve the attacks. Honestly, I would vote for Perry or Cain against the Obama. I doubt you would do the same.
I don’t have to listen to any of the socialist media. I already know what male bovine excrement they are pushing in general.
Dang Rabs, whoda thought we’d EVER agree? ;)
As I wrote on my FR Profile page:
Beware of those Americans, from left or right, who would undermine the Constitution.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself... A murderer is less to be feared. The traitor is the plague."
Hah—they want more than our votes. They want our money, too. The phone rings daily from various establishment Republican organizations—and they get an earful. Yet they keep calling. I block numbers, they call in on new ones. Pfffft.
Spot on! That’s the final nail in the coffin.
Bear in mind, Cain has said several times he’d be honored to be veep with Romney. He talks one games, plays another.
What evidence can you produce that Herman Cain "has simmering resentment"?
I’ve been lurking FR for a long time now and I was wondering why all these Romney,Perry, Ron Paul rino supporters have been allowed free roam here in FR. I thought after the 2008 election with the liberal GOP giving us McCain we outed and hunted down all rhinos here in FR.
And Im going to tell you very plainly so even a dummie can understand it. If you want to push Romney, thats your business, but FR is mine and youre not going to push him here! Take your Romney pushing elsewhere. May I suggest BigGovernmentMandateLovingRINO_Wankers_R_Us.com?
Apparently there are some FR posters that seem to think your declaration that they can't push Romney on FR means that they can't push him elsewhere, and vote for him.
I guess they read your statements as "Jim Robinson says I CAN'T be for/vote for Mitt Romney."
You'd think they would start a "IwillvoteforRomneyandJimRobinsoncan'ttellmewhattodo.com" site, so that they, and their compadres, can gather there and go full bore in supporting Romney.
Like that will ever happen.
First, listening to NPR and accepting what you hear as FACT is a mistake.
Second, the whole story is that Cain and his brother thought the water tasted different and that was the reason for the two fountains. They did not know it was because Democrats feared black people.
Cain tells the story as a joke about his youth.
If you think he has a chip on his shoulder, you are VERY misinformed and should hold your comments until you learn more about this remarkable man.
I’m with you re: Cain, plus he has already expressed support for Romney by saying he’d be honored to serve as his veep. Not a good sign.
