Isn't it obvious?

The GOP has gone the way of the Whigs.

Nah. “Establishment” is not a lifetime appointment. Neither is it an inherited position.

It *is* time to replace some established GOP leaders - the old fashioned way: political organization and elections.

I believe that is what we are doing with the Tea Party movement. If the author is advocating stopping this effort, that would be foolish and counter-productive.

YES, but only after getting Obama out of the White House.

And which party is left if we abandon the gop? The leftist party of obama. What has to be done is to elect local conservatives because that is who grows up to be national office holders.

From the article:
“On one side are national security conservatives, myself included, who reluctantly accept the stubborn fact that Islamic supremacist ideology is incorrigibly hostile to America and the West. We take the Muslim Brotherhood at its word that it is seeking to destroy the West and destroy Israel, and that it is doing so based on a divine injunction that is easily traceable to Islamic scripture. We understand that there are other ways of interpreting Islam, and we wish those other ways were predominant. But we believe American national security requires grasping that Islamic supremacism is the predominant Islam of the Middle East; it is the Islam of the Muslim Brotherhood throughout the world, very much including its organizations operating in our own country. We understand that Islamic supremacist ideology inspires not only violent jihad but also non-violent campaigns to supplant Western culture with Islamic culture - such as, for example, the campaign waged by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the Brotherhood to restrict free speech; their campaign to have sharia-compliant finance broadly accepted in the West; and their campaign to delegitimize Israel as a “racist occupier” while recasting Hamas, the Brotherhood, and even Hezbollah (a Shiite terrorist organization) as “political parties” and “resistance”).

Much chatter tthat comes down to:

Islam is antithetical to america and is irreconcilable with America.

Therefore:
“Islam Delenda Est” - because of what Islam is, and because of what Muslims do.

Conclusion: Islam is a societal cancer.
Radiation is the answer!

“Is It Time for Defenders of Liberty to Abandon the GOP?”

Silly question, why ask it if not certain one way or the other....

Most will fall back on the age-old lesser of evil rationale, even knowing the truth...a few, damn few, just go do the right thing...

The tea party patriots are essentially the GOP rank and file. We need to take back our party.

We have to dump Boehner, for this and for several other reasons as well. He needs to be “primaried” at the next opportunity.

I will say this, when Romney comes back in January and says “we don’t want to repeal all of Obamacare, there’s some good stuff in there...” then I am out. We can launch our FR party and I’ll be first to sign up.

I already abandoned the Republican party. It’s obvious that real conservatives are not welcome.

I abandoned the GOP years ago. The party has played along to get along for too long.

That doesn't mean that I'm not voting for Mittens, even though I detest him. I am, and I know what I'm getting: not 0bama.

A simple question, really. Does the Republican establishment speak for me and what I hold to be virtues?

I believe that you all know the answer, don’t you?

Its called doing our civic duty....becoming as politically involved from the Constitutional perspective as the Progressive/Socialist/Communists have been for the last 80 years creating this nasty little mess...

Most conservatives have always fancied they have better things to do.

I would put forth, that until the needed Constitutional things get done to restore the freedoms free markets and free men require, they’ll have plenty of time to devote to politics because there no longer is any way real business can be done under the present circumstances.

I abandoned the GOP when they controlled the house, the senate and the white house, and they still acted like tax and spend democrats.

They had the opportunity to show us who they really are and they did.

Conservatives can’t even organize enough to oppose a sidewalk ordinance at a local village council meeting.

Look how well they got together to vote for a conservative in the primaries.

Conservatives don’t understand organization or leadership.

The Founders organized Committees of Safety to fight the British Crown. That concept completely flies over the heads of conservatives.

I bang my head against the wall when I suggest to conservatives that they get involved in local politics. Elect a constitutional sheriff, volunteer for the county land planning committees. It’s all a big DUH!! to conservatives.

The Founders left a blueprint to fight tyranny. Either clean out your local neighborhoods or get squashed.

The GOP is not the root of the problem. Conservatism inc is. It sold out to the establishment. And worse, Islamists and their allies control it. Grover al-Norquist is on the board of most organizations of establishment conservatism. And at least half of the non-establishment conservative groups are isolationist and apologize for the Muslim Brotherhood.
This is a civil war within the GOP and Conservatism inq. Fleeing is not an option. There is nothing else out there. We must build alternatives to Norquist-dominated and Paulite groups and take back the movement, the party, and the country.
