Sarah Palin floats idea of leaving the Republican Party [VIDEO]
Daily Caller ^

Posted on 06/29/2013 11:44:52 AM PDT by Jim Robinson

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 Republican nominee for vice president responded to a Fox News Channel viewer’s Twitter question Saturday about the possibility of her and conservative talker Mark Levin abandoning the Republican Party and creating something called the “Freedom Party.”

Wherever she leads, I’m willing to consider following.

The GOP thinks that they are entitled to my vote.

They have treated me and my fellow conservatives like battered wives for 24 years and 5 months now. They are sure that we have nowhere else to go.

What you said.

This is why supporting American jobs is so critical.

There are a lot of “blue” voters, who want to work, and who cannot right now because their jobs went to China.

If Palin moves, I believe it will be critical for her to start a more-American worker sort of party. To capture a significant portion of Dems.

American workers, are what makes America strong.

We need American workers.

Period.

Thank you and thank God, we have Free Republic and thank God we also have Sarah Palin, and enough patriots in this country to elect patriots like Senator’s Ted Cruz and Mike Lee and the other US Senators who stood for us against the traitorous demonic-rats and that Gang of 14 insidious RINOS.

Now, we fight with all our individual and collective might to see that the Republican House stops this insanity by KILLING this senate BILL without writing another that goes to reconciliation!

GO FREE REPUBLIC!

Works for me. The Republican party is incapable of becoming conservative, or re-branding itself successfully enough to win.

Got to be careful with that naming business. “Freedom Party” as a name already has a lot of baggage:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_Party

Ought to be something more quintessentially American, like Tea Party, or I’m sure she’d be welcomed by the Constitution Party, which already exists and is well-synced up with Tea Party/Reaganesque values. There are other choices. Just sayin ...

Levin is behind her, and the way the other big name talkshow hosts complain about the GOP stabbing everyone in the back, they will probably follow also. Hannity, Rush, Wilkow, and others would probably follow suit. The best part is that they have Sarah’s attention, and they’ll announce it nationwide for the people.

I like Sarah. If she ran as an I, she would be subjected to so much slander and innuendo from both of the putrified political parties and the media collaborators will work it into a frenzy. She better wear kevelar underwear.

Why not? They dumped her a long time ago (and stabbed her in the back).

I’ve never understood why she has stayed in the GOP after the way they treated her.

You just know Boehner will try his best to push something through that can be dismantled in conference, then weep and act surprised.

She is loyal to a fault. She gave her whole life to the GOP and she didn’t want to admit to herself they are what they have become.

Think 5 stages of grief.

But she is getting over it, Thank God. And unleashed, she will be unstoppable.

That means in Texas, which is probably more anti-GOPe than any other state, we bring 11 out 38 (just under 30%) DC types to the Freedom Party movement.

The seemingly impossible is such until it happens.

I believe the Freedom Party would definite stir to action many tens of millions who have tuned out politics -- knowing both parties screw them.

A new second party is inevitable.

Sarah in her speech in Indianola (sp) Iowa made a frontal attack on crony capitalist.

In that speech Sarah stated she was for eliminating the Corporate Income tax.. She said that much of the regulating class, corrupted by corporate interests would end.

The result would be a much, much more friendly environment for business, true competition of the marketplace..

This alone will help pull back many overseas jobs and dramatically increase job growth here...

numerous disenchanted Democrats

You are absolutely right. I believe there are more (D) conservatives than we can imagine out there wishing for new options. Here in Utah they are Democrats mainly because of a misconception that Mormons are Republicans. In our world, (art dealers) most of the real players are conservative. Here in Utah most are also Democrats.

Any connection I have left with the GOP is hanging by the thinnest of threads. The Party no longer seems to share any of my values or ideology, as it has repeatedly caved on just about every ‘fiscal’ and ‘social’ conservative issue that I care about. The backstabbing treatment given Palin over these past few years by the GOP leadership/establishment was a massive wake-up call for me. They hate her and what she stands for, thus they hate me and what I stand for.

For nearly thirty years, I always watched and looked forward to the RNC conventions. But in 2012, I only felt deadness towards it. This year, it has only been more cavings, watching supposed GOP “conservatives” Rubio pushing amnesty, Toomey going for gun registration, Ryan embracing homo adoption. Add fiscal cliffs and everything between. Just no connection anymore with this pathetic entity known as the Republican Party.

Thats why trying to ‘fix’ the gop is a waste. Some Dems will NEVER vote GOP just because of the name and baggage. But they may well support many conservative ideas WITHOUT the GOP attached.

I constantly get junk mail from RNC asking for donations, which I toss. If a large number return their postage paid envelopes with a message- “Waiting for the Freedom Party”, that would be a great wake-up call.

I'm guessing that these Republican push-polls just go to a bank employee who deposits the check and discards the rest.

No small point, I would like to please repeat that.

There are a whole lot of Democrats who simply will not vote for a Republican.

Just because.

It is something to ponder. If Palin moves to a new party, there will not be that long-established “GOP” wall, many Dems see as a no-vote zone.

I think it will be a challenge for Palin to define a new party, particularly with BOTH major parties trying to define it at the same time.

But just thought I would mention that.

It is not all negative.

For all the bitching we do, there are still Reagan Dems alive out there. They just have no voice. There are also younger Dems not DU moonbat, but the albatross will NEVER EVER allow them to vote that way.

Look at the Paulites. Some of them actually ARE conservative in many ways. But they too will NEVER vote GOP. Because the GOP and it’s no principle BS will roll on them and they know it.

They may never campaign for Palin, but they would vote for her a hell of a lot faster than the next Romney. BECAUSE they share many of OUR beliefs.

you are correct ... about state rules written by both the democrats and republicans. They will make it and do make it very difficult. I’m ready to try though. We can change the rules once we get the needed wins. If this goes nationwide it could develop into a tidal wave not seen since Lincoln.
