First - blow off that feeling that we're going to lose, or already have lost! No, we're going to WIN.
First item of business, get invovlved in the Tea Party movement, and give D.C. a whole new influx of conservatives in Congress similar in size and importance to that of the last election - thereby blocking any of Obamas chances of having Congressional support for his machinations. Note too, the Tea Party used the GOP vehicle, not a third party. Reason, third parties are losers, because they don't have the national organization and presence large enough to compete.
FReepers need to get involved locally. There are tens of thousands of empty seats in local district Committees of the GOP across this nation - caused mostly by conservative appathy! Just by showing up regularly, you can be assured of gaining a seat from which you can VOTE - go to your county committees and vote there - and go to your state party conventions and vote there! (I personally helped see the ouster of liberal GOP control of the California GOP. Yes it was hard work, but we won - and that win has been, and can be duplicated in these perilous times through the 'hard work' of just SHOWING UP!)
Conservatives have a chance to block Obama, if not replace him. We CAN do that, but conservatives can not win by voting third-party - it's a throw-away vote that nets nothing.
The current GOP-E is NOT the friend of FREEDOM - but they are a very tiny group of RINO's that we can beat the snot out of - simply by doing what we can at the local district and state level. We - FReepers, and other dedicated conservatives - can and have ultimately fielded who becomes part of the GOP establishment. We need to OWN it like we did in the Reagan era, not destroy it through lack of attention to our God given orders to be 'watchmen on the wall' of who become our leaders.
No - it's not too late to shoulder your own responsibility - and earn your own right to say, 'I have fought the good fight, and WE WON.' There will be many opportunities in coming days to 'get involved' - don't let them slip by. Take advantage of the huge opportunities - you can, and will make a difference! It is quite fulfilling to debate hated RINO's FACE TO FACE - WIN when the vote is tallied - and see them denied a seat in party or public office!
Last but not least - we ALL need to get behind our Freepathon. Isn't it worth at least a dollar per day to you to come here, read, post, laugh and debate? Yes, I know, times are rough, and the 'cost of living' has gone way up. But, I'll bet you blow a lot on chocolate cake and ice cream or (insert your favorite deserts) - I, unfortunately, do! So let's all try to push this FReepathon toward an early completion - it might help save your waistline! LOL
muif, I haven’t noticed much of a difference since the last election. obamacare was supposed to have been defunded. What happened?
Arder, I voted for mccain and feel like I definitely wasted my vote. Didn’t even make a statement. I won’t do that again.
DC and the WASHINGTONIANS are the enemy, and they will not be defeated electorally.
The Ragheads have already figured out that the worst thing they could do for their cause, and the best thing for our Republic would be to nuke DC.
The tea party movement is an effort to get the GOP to be a small-government, conservative party.
I think that effort should be continued rather than abandoned.
We have some good new people in Congress and some up-and-coming future conservative leaders.
Compared to where we were after the 2006 and 2008 elections we are doing ok.
I do not think it is wise to give up on the GOP.
Agree. We need to have another result like 2010 in Congress, or maybe even better.
He ain't my captain and kickin his @$$ off the ship would do nothing but cause me to pop a bottle of rum and celebrate.
Figure out what to do when I wake up in the morning.
Some people keep saying this but the exit polls from the primaries just don't bear it out.
Plenty of evangelical Christians are voting for Romney. That is why he keeps winning.
Theory is nice but evidence is always more important.
Sorry RIghtwardHo, that last post was meant for Once-Ler and his lousy DNC inspired attack against you.
Oh jeeze, so now Robert Bork is a commie too?
If conservatives want to "snatch victory from the jaws of defeat" - there is no better way than to work like crazy over the coming months to EXCEED the result of 2010 - by significant numbers!
What a slap-down of Obama THAT would be!
Get a grip.
I would vote 3rd party only...only, if they get in gear and get in the race, if they are truly a viable candidate. Not some bonehead.
Lastly, if there is no 3rd party candidate stepping up....Newts far and away better than Romney even with his bumpy past.
“Another pro-Obama Freeper. rat...it’s the new conservatism.”
Take a look at RIghtwardHo’s post and Once-Ler’s response.
I have to say I’m tired of seeing the Romneybots trash and accuse posters who don’t whore out their conservative principles by supporting their baby killing, gun grabbing, socialist. They resort to the same name calling and whiny irrational tactics as the Dems....of course I guess I could expect as much from liberals...even if they are “severely conservative”. We should not have to read their comments be labeling us as “Obama supporters” just because we don’t toe the GOP-e line. I could do without ever being called “Pro-Obama” just because I oppose the GOP-e chosen liberal, sleazey socialist. F them, F the establishment, and FUMR.
Thanks for hosting such a great site, and creating a safe haven for conservatives...even when the party betrays us.
That being said, would you mind taking out some of the trash? It’s starting to get “severely” stinky in here.
The GOP primaries are even more dominated by Christians and Romney is doing pretty well in those.
I have seen a lot of polling from conservative sources that has shown Romney garnering a plurality of the Christian vote in the primaries.
I wanted someone else to be our nominee but it is worth asking why that didn't happen. At least some of the assumptions that we FReepers were making six months ago haven't completely panned out.
Don’t forget local school boards (taxes and the liberal mind control of our youth), library boards, local government, etc.
Yeah - there is 'evidence' - but this isn't conclusive by any measure. Why? Because it is 'incidental' from primaries that are historically less attended than the general election.
I'll stand by my bet - we'll all see what happens in November.
Who knows - Obama is SO BAD - hell, I think Mickey Mouse could win if he were put on the ballot! LOL
Let's see how voting goes in Texas - which I expect to be very much lower in turnout than it will be in November.
Yeppers! ALL of those ‘little’ elections are as important as the big ones - if not a LOT MORE important!

No...no it's not. Regardless of whether we have a Republican or Democrat is in office, we keep heading down the same path.
Both parties have been highjacked. When they break it, we will fix it.
I know many patriotic men who will NEVER allow the country to be destroyed. One day, it will break.
We will probably see some really ugly times, but I am confident that those who fight for liberty and freedom fight
with a deeper degree of conviction and intensity.
Once you've tasted freedom, you will never live as a subject. History of the founding of this country testifies to what I've said.
I really don’t follow you.
How does it make sense to think that Obama will run against Romney by portraying him as too socially moderate for conservatives?
Why wouldn’t this backfire and win Romney the votes of social moderates who don’t like Obama’s economic policies?
Obama is going to call Romney an uncaring plutocrat. If the leftists mention gays or abortion it will be to describe Romney as too conservative on these issues.
Given that Texas is voting so late this time I'm not sure what a low turnout will really prove.
Mitt’s action speak louder than his words, and the actions say he’s almost as much of a lib has Obama.
I suspect it would have to be close for them to cheat beyond the norm. With a Rominee, I do not think that race is salvagable. Perhaps I can move to a less than 80% Black district by November to vote for a Congresscritter where it will matter.
The tea party and conservative values should always be at the forefront, and we should fight to keep conservative principles at the forefront of the Republican party. But millions of people have voted for Romney and he will win the primary. I will vote Romney and work my butt off to keep him held to conservative ideas and Principles. We have a much better chance of holding his feet to the fire if we are his constituency. Obama just laughs at us and does what he wants.
Maybe one day the Tea or Conservative party will be able to put up a viable candidate of it's own. But the time is not now.
I will not stamp my foot down and say I'm sitting this one out. Obama will destroy this country if reelected. And even if a true conservative won in 2016, there’d be no constitution left to uphold.
>>Given that Texas is voting so late this time I’m not sure what a low turnout will really prove.<<
Trust me on this one, turnout will not be low. Texans are pissed!
The states which have not voted yet have 46% of the delegates! If Newt and Rick combine delegates, they only need to win 244 more than Romney does to secure the nomination. Not since Newt’s victory in South Carolina has Romney had a greater chance of being mathematically denied the nomination than today. The conservative vote-splitting has been destroying that possibility ever since Santorum won his primaries in February. Our first job now is to get Newt enough delegates to deny Romney the nomination and throw it to a floor vote at the convention.
Not much - that's for sure. But, I'll bet Texas speaks quite loudly in the general, and they won't be going Obama! LOL
Would we ever hire radical leftists and commies to attack Obama from the left and say he’s too moderate? How could that possibly work into an election strategy where we’re trying to convince people Obama is a far-left extremist?
THAT would shake the establishment (left and right) to hell and back.
Leftist media-types would be near catatonic... not knowing what to say! lol
Romney hasn’t won the delegates to be the nominee yet.
Just because it’s not looking all so well for Conservatives at this point doesn’t mean we’re down for the count.
Newt is staying in, and staying active as much as he can right through the convention.
McCain was down, and out, but all of a sudden was the nominee in 2008. Bad example I know, but an example nontheless.
I believe we need to add prayer to that list of to-do’s in which we must exert our energies in effort to turn this ship from slamming into the rocks.
Although Bork is generally conservative, he is anti-gun. He has stated many times that the 2nd Amendment is only a collective and not an individual right.
Every day - often! So very much agree.
That would also require that in most states remaining, over 100% of Santorum’s supporters switch to Gingrich.
You are right, as a Texan, a TEA PARTY TEXAN, I can assure you that turnout will not be low...Our task now is to provide Mitt a Tea Party House and Senate, just to keep him honest... Get my drift...
Wow - I hope Newt, Rick, and Ron Paul get their heads together and stop this insanity. But, I'm not sure they can get it past election rules.
Texas has not voted in the primary yet, when we do, I will vote for the most conservative candidate...if there are any left in the contest.
The whole process has been perverted beyond belief.
A dictator, such as Obama, only has the power that the people give him.
Currently at least 40 % of American voters are gladly willing to give Obama the necessary power to continue his dictatorship.
Dictator Obama has designed Obamacare to become active only AFTER he is re-elected, thus enabling THE NINE SUPREMES to delay ruling on the Constitutionality of the dictate of the individual mandate until Obama is once again the Illegal Foreign White House Occupier, (IFWHO).
The purpose of Dictator Baby-Doc Barack is simple: 1.) Regulate; 2.) Control; and 3.) Destroy. By his own count he as achieved 60 % of his goals, according to the note he says he carries in his pocket.
Obamas obvious deep hatred of America could have only come from his childhood.
Since there are no known networks of childhood friends from Obamas past, Obama was probably a member of a Marxist sleeper cell funded by wealthy men with a Marxist view of the World.
The lack of credible evidence that has NOT been forged requires a long-term, highly skilled and well-funded support group.
Who the key members of Obamas probable support group and probable sleeper cell were and are is well known to the CIA and the FBI.
Will the Citizen Journalists such as Breitbart Editor Joel Pollack be able to out-spy these two tax-funded spy entities?
BTW, forget about the LAM, (Liberal Agenda Media), as they are saving their notes to write their tell-all Obama books after Obama has SAFELY retired back home in Kenya.
BTW, BTW, to all the doubters of the above speculation: what does your gut tell you?
