Conservatives Can't Wait to Vote
Rush Limbaugh.com ^ | May 9, 2012 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 05/09/2012 11:25:06 AM PDT by Kaslin

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: I'm gonna break this down in even more detail as the program unfolds. Lugar has issued a very lengthy and quite telling statement. Lugar is comparing his defeat to the end of reason, the end of the Republican Party, the end of compromise, the end of people working together. Lugar is saying that his defeat is a bad thing. It's gonna lead to partisanship and rancor.

It's gonna lead to the end. The Senate is gonna descend now. It's not gonna be nearly the august body it has been. Not because he's not there. He's not that kind of an ego guy. It's clear he's a moderate, establishment guy who doesn't want to argue with anybody about anything. He's not a conservative, and he's part of Republican establishment that thinks conservatives are the problem, not Democrats.

There's a headline from the Associated Press, dateline Washington. Kasie Hunt is the authoress. The headline says it all: "Primaries Reflect Conservative Enthusiasm for 2012." This was not what they were expecting to write today. I guarantee you. I think maybe down deep (in parts of their bodies and their minds that they seldom really tap into), they know. They know the country doesn't want any more of them. They know the country doesn't want any more of Obama.

But they've got the media on their side. They read the media every day; they watch television every day. They live in a world where an entirely fraudulent picture of this country is presented every day, and they end up believing it. So in part they are shocked and surprised. Richard Lugar has lived in the Washington suburbs since 1977, since he was elected to the Senate. He doesn't have a residence in Indiana.

That's what I call REAL inside the Beltway.

But even so -- even so, ladies and gentlemen -- we probably have to admit that Dick Lugar is more of an Indianan than Elizabeth Warren is an Indian, even though he's not got a residence there.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: So the big news yesterday was two things. The evidence that the Tea Party is alive and kicking and ready to make 2012 look just like 2010. Because that's what yesterday was. Yesterday was the continuation of the 2010 midterm elections. The Democrats in some places, Democrat voters, launched a war on Obama. The Democrats did not turn out in Wisconsin, despite millions of dollars spent by unions.

Republicans turned out in greater numbers to vote for Scott Walker when they didn't need to. He wasn't challenged. There was no reason for Republicans to show up whatsoever. Why did they, then? Why did more people vote for Scott Walker yesterday in Wisconsin than the two Democrats (who are in a very heated contest) combined? The answer is simple: Republicans are waiting to be unleashed! Conservatives, more specifically, are fed up. Conservatives are fit to be tied.

They're angry as how they're being portrayed in the media. They're angry at how Obama's being propped up. They're angry at the lack of truth being reported about their country. They can't wait to show up and show the rest of the country what's really going on. They can't wait to prove who they are and who this country is. That's why Republican turnout's through it roof. That's why conservative turnout is through the roof.

People love their country, and this is how they show it. This is how they answer all the lies, the misrepresentations, all of the faux journalism that's taking place. "Okay, you want some reality? Here's an election. Take this!"

“Richard Lugar has lived in the Washington suburbs since 1977, since he was elected to the Senate. He doesn’t have a residence in Indiana.”

Don’t they have to at least maintain an apartment or hotel room in the state they claim to represent?

I’ll speak about Wisconsin.

We in Wisconsin have had this crap shoved in our face EVERY SINGLE DAY for nearly a year and a half. The bumper stickers on every Prius and Suburu. The corrupt media doing everything they can do wack Walker. The unceasing RANTS by the left-wing wacko squads.

Unleashed? Absolutely unleashed! Republicans across this state have been quietly tasting the viniger on their teeth waiting, just waiting to spit it OUT! And that’s what happened yesterday and that’s what will happen again next month.

Rush is DEAD ON in this analysis on every point he makes — DEAD ON.

RELEASE THE HOUNDS!!

Too bad the socialist romney is the standard bearer for the GOP... (unless the GOP gets a clue and changes this up at the convention)...

What a shame...

Ill direct my efforts towards worthy candidates, but i will NOT vote for or support Romney in any way. In fact I will actively work to bring his ass down along with the progressive GOP-e.

Conservatism threatens the Republican power structure as much as it threatens the Democrats. That fact is precisely why the Republican party has seen to it that Romney is their standard bearer. He is the most unlikable of all potential candidates by conservatives. The only real hope for Republican RINOs is to reelect Obama. To accomplish this they need a Romney candidacy. Neither the Republican nor the Democrat power structures acknowledge the overwhelming opposition to both their camps. Look for a stealth candidate in a third party run. There are several likely prospects. Among them are Ron Paul and Sarah Palin.
Revolution is in the air. The Marxists and the Do Nothings will not be pleased with the result.

Nope. I think he won a court challenge. But the Constitution says he needs to live there, but that may have been only for the first election. Senate rules got mucked up when they passed the constitutional amendment to take the power of Senate election from the state legislatures and gave it to the mobs.

I’m confused.

I think Rush is wrong on this one, because I visit FR every day and have read how we don’t have a chance, conservatives are disheartened, Romney is Obama-lite, the election’s already in-the-bag for our Dear Leader, “I’ll never vote for Romney”, etc.

Sigh.

As for me, I’m a broken glass voter this time. BEATING BARACK trumps all.

Well if enough conservatives get elected to Senate as well as more in the House, they could very well put Mitt’s feet to the fire.

I remember from history lessons that Robert Kennedy won the US Senate seat from NY in 1964 but he couldn’t vote that year because he hadn’t met the residency requirement.

No... they will do just what they did with GW... Pass every dumb ass, socialist, POS legislation, bailout, etc...

“holding mitt’s feet to the fire” is GOP-e talking points to get us to go along with supporting their socialist candidate.

Problem is... This time around, we KNOW they are full of sh—.

The F’ing idiots in the GOP may not fully comprehend they are playing a game of chicken with folks like me (and there are a LOT of us), but they are... I know Im not gonna blink, Im putting my head down, slamming the accelerator to the floor and im not looking up again. ever... Im pretty sure that a significant number of folks who usually make up the GOP ground game feel exactly the same way.

Either the GOP backs down or they are headed towards a disaster. end of story.

First things first, Frater -

ABO

More importantly, this process of taking back our country, to undo the damage from a century of slow-wratcheting ever-leftward erosion of our Republic, is going to take a LONG time. And several election cycles so that TEA party Americans can continue to grow in strength.

All journeys begin with the 1st step... And nothing is more important than getting the usurper out of power.

Afraid that Mitt is not the right choice? Suck it up, ace - he is the only choice. Remember that it is the entire government that needs fixing; Romney will be receptive to the growing Constitutionalists that are the only group that can really work from within the govt to change it. Like I said above, it will take several cycles of 2010-like Conservative gains - likely not as dramatic, but steady nonetheless - before the vermin dhimmicrats and the “dhimmi-lite” establishment rinos are rendered powerless.

But the first step must be to get the usurper out of office. Anybody But Obama.

ABO.

Romney is a socialist...

Nothing else matters.

So I see your ABO and raise you an ABAFSPOS (Anyone But Another Socialist Piece Of Sh—)

Isnt gonna happen Chief. Your socialist candidate is doomed to lose to the other socialist candidate. and when he does the blame will be laid SQUARELY on the shoulders of the progressive GOP-e and their sycophants.

Your “first step” BS is nothing we haven’t heard before. You have NOTHING left in the playbook to keep us on your leftward tilting reservation any longer. The thing that sucks tho.. for you at least... Is that were not gonna leave, we are going to eliminate the progressives.

How? well, one of the ways is making them irrelevant by making sure every one of their candidates lose. Sucks, I know.. But when your dealing with a cancer sometimes you just gotta poison the entire body to kill the cancer.

You cant make deals with cancer
You cant negotiate with cancer.
you cant exist with cancer (for long).

You have to kill the cancer or your going to die.

First step... Is killing the cancer in our party. \
Second step... after we have a healthy party, kill the cancer in the states.
third... kill the cancer in the fedgov.

We are on step 1 bubba...

Suck it up. it gonna be a bumpy ride.

Conservatism threatens the Republican power structure as much as it threatens the Democrats.

There's no way the country can be turned around if conservatives and RINOs remain in the same party, because when push comes to shove, RINOs' whole political identity centers around being able to "work with" Democrats. Given a choice between destroying leftism or destroying the country, many RINOs would rather do the latter than the former.

read my comments again. this isn’t my leftward move. And this crap about how this sucks for me - you don’t know me for you to be running shit out your mouth like i’m some kind of progressive.

then read a bit closer, and see that I believe more conservatives in Congress is the only way this change can happen in a peaceful way, at the ballot box.

Because if it’s not the ballot box, then it’s the bullets.

So you see, 2012 really is the bellweather election of our lives. But it won’t be the only one; just a start to taking back the Republic from which the dhimmis and the usurper have brought so close to destroying.

But i might be wrong; after 2008 I really thought it was going to get bloody before it got better. then the Tea party comes along, 2010 midterms - and it’s a start. Now Rino lugar is getting bounced and with good reason; and the votes in wisconsin give me hope that Conservatives - who didn’t even have to show up for the primary since Walker was running unopposed - still did, and outvoted the dhimmis who have just forced that state to spend 16 million on the recall. And that gives me hope that real Americans - the ones that want to stop this leftist tyranny, to get the government back under control, will come out to the vote this November. And that means that true Constitutionalists, true conservatives, will increase their numbers in Congress.

And I believe that the conservative core in Congress can control a leftward leaning guy like Romney. and THAT’s a better proposition than leaving the usurper in place, which is what will happen if other citizens do like you and not vote.

So we disagree on certain things; fine. opinions are like assholes after all, everyone’s got one.

As for your laying this leftist claptrap on me... you can take that and stick it where the sun doesn’t shine. I regret addressing you as Frater in my first note - you are no brother of mine.

agreed. Loved that our crowd came out for Walker and outnumbered the dhimmi voters.

Hopefully the trend will hold true in November and not just in Wisconsin, but across the whole land.

My fear now is voter fraud - I read an article on accuracy in media, about how the ACORN criminals have merely organized into different organizations and are still involved in registration and the voting process. Truly scary, if not for the thing that I’m certain it will happen, but that so far our response in previous voter fraud events has been pitiful.

Might as well save your breath.

It WILL take time to turn this ship around. Some here will not even consider the truth in this.



Where there's a shell, there's a way.

25 years ago, we had Ronald Reagan, Johnny Cash, and Bob Hope.
Today we have Obama, no cash, and no hope!

If you can't appreciate the pure beauty of the violin after hearing this, something's wrong with your ears.

Or you can get raw with these strings.

How about this gamechanger from America's Got Talent (which they SHOULD have won).

Either way, the violin is sweet yet lethal.

Do it!

“Well if enough conservatives get elected to Senate as well as more in the House, they could very well put Mitt’s feet to the fire.”

Those numbers don’t add up—there won’t be enough conservatives running to land 40 conservatives in the Senate. But I would expect the conservatives not to be the 100% bloody sycophants the were during the Bush administration. Conservatives in Congress will need to oppose Romney when he plays Obama lite. Loudly and hopefully effectively.

The result of that opposition will be that Romney will construct coalitions of Dems and enough R’s to pass a fair amount of progressive nonsense. And there will be plenty of R’s to join them.

The pressure on conservative congressmen and senators will be overwhelming to join in. It will take a very disciplined conservative caucus to be an effective opposition voice to Romney over the next four years. It’s hard to oppose your own president. The only way they stay the course is if they get a LOT of pressure from their constituents.

The press will, of course, blame Republicans in general and conservatives in particular for the damage the coming progressive administration causes.

A Romney administration will be less damaging than an Obama administration. But either is going to preside over one of the most difficult four years in modern history. Both will continue policies (spending, deficits, money printing) that are making the economic problems worse. Yet those policies are reaching the end of their effectiveness—we are seeing the progressive end-game. The gvt cannot keep kicking the bubble down the road much longer. I believe it bursts sometime before 2016. It’s important we put down bold and loud opposition markers the public knows about to have the credibility to pick up the pieces when things come apart.

Adding on to my previous reply: Even if every credible conservative in races we might win takes a victory next November, conservatives are still the opposition because there won’t be enough in congress to control the agenda, regardless who is president. The administration will not be conservative, in either event. So even if the R’s take the house, the senate, and the presidency, conservatives are still the opposition party.

If our conservative representatives do not vote that way loudly—as the opposition—then the Republican party probably will go the way of the Whigs (and deservedly so).

Precisely.

The 2 party system is a cabal whose primary purpose is the expansion of government. During our revolution loyalty to the Crown was as substantial a problem as the authority of the Crown. Both had to be opposed.

Today's political environment is an accommodation between Marxism and a watered down nationalism represented by the Democrats and Republicans respectively. The entire edifice must be brought down. RINO leadership is less concerned about winning elections than about maintaining the balance of corruption that runs DC and is destroying our country.

The failure of Tea Party politics to take over the Republican party will see the emergence of a nationalist party. Whether this happens in this election or the next, it is inevitable.
