Wrong question, Tagg.
HOW DO WE GET RID of LYING RINOs, and their fascist
HOW DO WE better vet candidates for conservative positions?
This is totally irrelevant to the question of how do we get to fifty one Republican senators if we will even admit that we want to take control from the RATs? THINK!!!!!! How do we do it?
I'm more interested in how we get fifty one Conservative senators.

wrong my friend. since Reagan a vast army of people "in the public economy" has been created, that includes unemployment, income payments, disability, student loans, government unions. that number is now around 50% of the population, that's more than enough when you throw in green and pro abortion to make the government a permanent fixture until it actually breaks down. that will only happen when the dollar blows up.
What does this have to do with trying to get rid of a Democrat majority in the US Senate?
Good. At least you admit you don’t care about getting rid of Democrats—that’s more than the rest of these Freepers will do. These people curse the darkness without the slightest idea of how to get out of the darkness.
"WE" don't need to "vet". Most of the people who "vet" are generally just pushing their own candidate and tearing down others. The proper way to discuss each candidate is to point out their conservative positions particularly their core principles and past actions. If those are false or made up, someone else will quickly point that out. And that is all that is necessary.
Do you have a strategy to get to fifty one Republicans in the US Senate?
YOU are part of the problem and the reason we got stuck with Romeny this election cycle. You have been manipulated by the MSM or are a deceiving liberal troll under a seemingly innocuous name like cuddly old great grandmother to have FReepers drop their defenses.
What was the strategy for the French resistance in WW II? To align with the Vichy French to fight the Germans? It's the same thing with the Vichy Republicans.
Massachusetts US Senator Special Election
Primary Election: April 30, 2013
Special Election: June 25, 2013
And it is not going to work this time. Period.
NO MORE RINOs. If a faux conservative lied
they should be recalled, removed, and replaced.
NO MORE RINOs.
Thank you for rational answer but I think you’re saying that it isn’t all that important that we get rid of Democrats in the US Senate.
I exactly agree with that. I think we’re saying the same thing except I’m taking it one step farther in addressing the fact we MUST get rid of Democrat control in the US Senate and how do we do that?
How about we start by full correction of the LIES of
RINO apologists, RINO protectors, RINO supporters,
and the backstabbing RINOs?
I just want to know why these so called “Moderates” spend all their time trying to moderate the GOP while the democrats happily goose step into full on fascism completely unhindered.
If they truly wanted to moderate, they would seek to moderate the party that actually needs it instead of constantly pinching the feeding tube of the GOP.
Seems to me that they’re deliberately helping the demofascists.
Let's suppose we could get Sarah Palin elected president but we have both a veto proof Democrat US Senate and a veto proof US House, what good is a President Palin?
Maybe you don't understand how legislation is made. I do, I worked inside the system for sixteen years. We MUST have majorities if we want to do anything.
The way to get rid of democrats in any position, is to run a CONSERVATIVE against them not a RINO like yourself. I have a suggestion of changing your name to RINOgreatgrandson.
Wrong, those are the words of someone who knows how the system works and also words of a realist. If I can have my choice of solid conservatives rather than RINOS, I’ll take them but if my choice is between a RINO or a Democrat, I’ll take the RINO.
exactly, and going under an assumed name like conservativegreatgrandma they think they are slick hiding behind a name such as that. They aren’t fooling anyone here.
In some cases that may be true but suppose you must make the choice in a US Senate race between a RAT and a RINO, which one will you choose?
Somehow there are those who ardently believe that all that's required is to have an "R" at the end of one's name, and that is the sole standard. The fact that ideologically the candidate is a near clone of a Democrat (or can easily be moved to the dark side) is never even considered.
Statists, liberals, wishy-washy types, craven politicians who will say anything to get elected - these are all joyously welcomed, as long as they have that precious "R" after their name. The fact that they'll scamper like the rats they are to the other side when the bombs start falling is irrelevant, apparently.
Well, did you see that I was called a liberal suck up?
You have been baiting FReepers in this thread asking what THEY would do. I want to hear YOUR solution. If it is just a path to run more RINOs then I already know what your agenda is and you are truly NO conservative and you should change your FReeper user name immediately.
Anyone who does not bow to Romney and Rove
according you is “worthless” and “stupid”.
That clearly demonstrates that YOU
are not the sharpest knife in the drawer or a plant.
No more liberal(R) candidates. Period. If the GOP wants to win, let them run conservatives, or go the way of the Whigs.
That’s the ideal but it is never going to happen. This is not heaven and beside, just from ready posts here on FR, I see Freepers moving from loving someone one day to hating them the next.
We have seen that you are rabid and about as far
from 'conservative' as is Obama-the-Undocumented Marxist.
That's because you, in your own words, try to gain support for liberal republican candidates.
So the romneys are going to be like the kenndys, and the clintons, can’t keep them out of the news!
I did not support Romney in the caucus but after he became the Republican candidate, I wholeheartedly supported both Romney and Ryan as anyone is better than Obama.
I assure you, I am not even close to a RINO but if I have to use a RINO to get rid of a Democrat, I'll do it.
You’re wasting your time trying to teach folks how to play poker when they’re best at go fish.
I guess in stead of rino, we just need to start calling them what they are demoRAT-lite!!!!!
Give the people a clear choice. We need to run conservative candidates that live conservatism, not candidates that pretend to be conservative right before they're up for election.
What you have been touting on FR is a proven losing strategy. If conservatism isn't what sells, why do our more moderate candidates always pretend to be more conservative right before their elections? Why not let it "all hang out" and campaign as a liberal? Because it's a losing strategy, as we have witnessed.
I am only trying to point out how important it is to get to fifty one Republican senators in the US Senate? So you think it is more conservative to ignore a defensive strategy to keep Democrats out of control? I don’t. I think it is more conservative to do everything possible to keep Democrats out of the control.
So you prefer Democrat control?
Okay, you convinced me. It's futile. Gonna stay home for now on, because what's the point after all. Never is never.
Good point, Diogenesis. Now that Romney's been roundly trounced by Obama, he can warm up his sleaze machine again and go back to attacking conservatives. I'd forgotten that he set it down after he got rid of his Republican competitors.
If you truly believe that 51 votes fixes everything, why did that not work in the Clinton and GW Bush eras?
>I agree with that but it ignores the questions of how do we get to fifty one senators because it seems to me that unless we get there, government is going to continue to grow and grow and grow because our side doesn’t have the will to try to stop Democrats.
This is going to take strategy and I see a lack of a sane strategy on FR. <
If you will recall when Bush had a majority in both houses, Harry Reid et al screamed bloody murder about “fairness”, and “bipartisanship”. Invariably we would see more moderate “Republicans” caving in and siding with the democrat minority.
So, if you use strategy to elect any old moderate, in order to gain 51 votes, you are doomed to failure.
History is a great teacher.
I will never prefer a liberal Republican to a conservative Republican but I will ALWAYS prefer a liberal Republican to a liberal Democrat and that is all I am trying to say.
Team Romney are PROVEN backstabbers.
= =- = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
TEAM ROMNEY and the GOPE just proved they are very effective against CONSERVATIVES or OTHER R’s.
The 3 women (BY NO MEANS PERFECT) that Rove & Co torpedoed - as much by inaction as anything - When I say the women were not perfect and probably not really MY first choice but they went up against IMNSHO vulnerable D’s...
The D’s may or may not be ‘stealing’ elections but the R establishment is doing NOTHING to override them.
This last election in MA and the ‘new’ appt by the Gov are examples of R’s being weak.
Saw the map of Ronald Reagans victory and I believe one of the problems ‘we’ Conservatives/R’s have is - however minute, just a thought - we let ‘them’ co-opt us and somehow WE became RED (sinister? more so than Blue) and they just ‘took over’ BLUE. Like I said minutiae BUT just proved we won’t stand up for ourselves. When ‘they’ have you on the run, once you try and stand up for yourself no one takes you serious.
Reid gets reelected - despite having his head up BO’s arse,
(remember BO was telling folks that Vegas was a waste of their money), that faux Marine (wannabee more than he actually was) Blumenthal in CT, the faux Indian - if nothing else accepted money for College on less than honorable conditions, a decent woman in DE not getting backing, the D’s, under BO threaten to cripple the coal industry in PA and Murtha walked to another huge win etc etc etc.
Lord knows what ‘they’ are going to foist upon us next, the D’s run a more outlandish candidate year after year...Clinton gets reelected when he was proven to be inept and a womanizer etc, Gore almost beats Bush, Kerry came way to close and though I will deny saying it (<:) they are both BETTER than BO (whose ‘only’ asset was he ‘looks good’ and doesn’t speak ‘Black’) who wins twice MAINLY because the R’s offered absolutely no viable opposition and the D’s giving away the store.
Why tear down Romney over a dog non-issue? Is that easier than pointing out the dozens of reasons that he is not conservative?
It doesn't matter if a liberal(D) or liberal(R) is in control. Both are liberals.
If the Republican party has to be destroyed to get conservatives in charge, I'm fine with that.
What you are advocating has not, and will not work. We'll still wind up with liberals in charge.
Thank you. I despise Democrats far more than I despise RINOs and I’ll do anything to defeat a Democrat at every opportunity. We don’t even know who are our enemies.
