Palin was able to work with Dems like Reagan did because she attacked the Murkowski GOP machine on her way to being governor in Alaska.

Then when she became VP candidate for the GOP, the Dems turned on her and she lost the ability to govern in Alaska.

The economic turmoil upon us with worse to come may provide a catalyst for abandonment of the two big parties and the emergence of a new one.

Palin may again be able to govern............

Seems Sarah does not agree with you Katie

"You know, what’s wrong with being independent,’ kind of with that libertarian streak that much of us have.

Bring back American jobs.


Stop sending Anmerican jobs to China. Bring back American jobs from China.

Balance out our trade.

It’s not complicated. Make stuff in America again.

That will employ people, and decrease the amount of money our government spends, on people who do not work.

People who DID work, before they were laid off, and their jobs were sent to China.

Bring back US jobs. Now.

Go ahead, dummy. Consign yourself to total oblivion politically. Also you Palin bots are just as bad as Obama bots.

An odd post from someone who has been registered on this conservative website since 1999. Palin bots? Bad as the non-existent Obama bots here on Free Republic? Really?

Isn’t owner Jim Robinson a ‘Palin-bot’? As for me; I’d probably vote for her, and I do NOT support the 19th Amendment.

If Lakeshark actually had a change of heart and decided to rejoin conservatives, that would be great. But he hasn’t. In our arguement above, he said...

Lakeshark to Norm Lenhart
Norm, if you weren’t so stupid I’d actually address your post.

If we were to follow your ideas, we’d get about 2% of the low fo right of center vote.

Now ‘my ideas’ art the ones we are all discussing (not that they are ‘my’ ideas, but the ones we are all talking about on this thread are the very things he has trashed me for, and others for, time and again.

Yes, there is a history and it actually began with us on the same team mocking PDSers for their MSNBC talking points. Since then, Lake and I parted company over Romney.

If you go into his post history, aside from his posting pix of Yosemitie Sam on a dragon and calling it intelligent political commentary, you will find numerous and repeated assertions that both principles and ‘purists’ are the problem. That’s his own words in his own posts, not me ‘claiming’ anything.

He repeatedly wants conservatives to sell out their principles to ‘win’. And many people did that over the years. myself included to my eternal shame. But we did it. And what exactly did that get us all? It got us a Congress full of unprincipled Republicans that vote with Democrats.

There is no need to go into great detail as all freepers know the plethora of examples showing these ‘winners’ are no different from dems.

But he has consistently screamed bloody murder that we keep doing it and trashing many freepers in very personal terms, for not going along. And as you can see in his post I copy/pasted, he thinks all the things we are discussing here will get us ‘2%’ of the vote.

No, he is the same Lakeshark he has been. And what he represents is the very thing we are fighting against. If he someday sees how destructive his beliefs have been to America and abandons the lesser evil path to socialism, great. But he has not. And people like that should be given no more quarter than Rubio. Because when he mocks all of us that say “Enough!” and continues spreading the gospel of ‘lesser evils’ the Rubios of the GOP are exactly the people he wants to continue in power. Simple Boolean logic.

You do not fix a problem by continuing to repeat the causes of it. Ergo, you do not fix a broken conservative movement, or country, by electing more of the people who broke it.

Absolutely spot on. Bring back American jobs now. The ability to manufacture is the ability to create wealth. America used to be the greatest creditor nation in the world, and we are now the greatest debtor nation. All of our money is now in Chinese banks. My own belief on why it was all exported seems simple. Most Americans used to get their pensions and health benefits through their employers. Corporations saw the boomer generation, 70 million strong, coming at them like an unstoppable freight train, and they wanted out before it was too late. After making zillions of dollars on us, starting with diapers, baby food and hula hoops in the late ‘40s and early ‘50s, they finally decided they needed the North American Free Trade Agreement, and the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade, a.k.a. Nafta and Gatt, in 1994. Word in DC back then was that if Clinton, who had just blown the dems congressional majority after 40 years, went along with Nafta and Gatt, then Corporate America would not not oppose his re-election efforts in ‘96. With the departure of corporations from the US, there's only one entity large enough to fill the pension and health care void, the US government, hence Obamacare. These two treaties hollowed out America's manufacturing base, and sent it all to China. There's some geopolitical nonsense involved here, in that America's elitist and liberal politicians, like the Bush family, believed in bringing Red China in from the isolation of communism, and turn them in our direction by promising them exactly what they have now, i.e., a stranglehold on our economy. Any attempt by Americans to reclaim our manufacturing base can be vetoed by China by simply demanding that we repay our trade deficit, which we cannot do. The Bush family has put us in a terrible position, with virtually no way out, unless we start voting for patriots. God Bless Sarah Palin.

This whole thread sounds like an AA meeting - for conservatives.

Kinda sounds like we’re somewhere between steps 1 and 2.

Well I’ll be doggone.

Spot on. Best post I’ve read in a long, long time. Well done.

See the thing missing from all of that is, that China is becoming stronger than America.

It hasn’t happened yet, but the momentum is now in China’s corner.

China has more people, more manufacturing, and increasingly more money.

All that exporting of manufacturing to China, is in Chinese control now. “We” have 49%. In other words, really we have nothing.

All of the staffing of manufacturing plants in China, is all Chinese employees.

We have gone far to far, in the other direction. Now we are poised to be dominated by the Chicoms.

Wake up people.

Who could blame her with ‘conservatives’ like you and the PDS wing having her back?

Yes, I’m sure you, in her position, would have bankrupted your family and those of your staff to fight off the Dems. Sure you would.

Tell me does the Stupid Burn?
I really want to know.
So many excuses that I hear,
Just bouncing to and fro

I hear it’s quite conservative
And rainbows lead the way
In front of tanks and planes and bombs,
To make our soldiers Gay

Likewise today around the right,
Lets make a choice severe,
Abort unwanted children,
Adopt them to a queer!

And what about the guns you own?
What did supporters say?
It truly must be Reaganesque,
To take them all away!

For shame the bitter clingers,
With Bibles by the bed.
Believe instead in Steve and Bob,
Whose right we’ll make to wed.

Such was the choice the GOP,
Bequeathed to us to vote.
Our patriotic duty,
Just hold your nose and choke.

Alas I am not stupid.
I do not feel the burn.
But come election season,
I fear they will not learn.

Another leftist RINO,
Or Democrat they’ll pass
Upon the the right wing public,

Well they can kiss my ass.

If Sarah left, I’d follow.

-R and -D are no longer important. What is important, as always, is Freedom Loving Right vs. Authoritarian Left.

Would go great with a Parliament-Funkadelic beat and a few vinyl scracthes. Throw in a gold chain and baggy pants and you’ve gotta hit.

P.S. Always remember to hold the pistol sideways when firing.
