I see what you are getting at, but I dissagree that there is a compramising brigade anywhere near the base of the conservative movement...

The “leadership” in the Republican party IS solidifying their moderate (Compromising methodology)...This will be their undoing...

That’s why they, (leadership), are trying to oust as many people in the Republican party that are not buying into this middle of the ground politicking...

And when people talk about this third party thing, the directive is to scoff, demean, critizise, ostrasize and do whatever they can to keep those weaker republicans in line...

Thank you for stating a very real truth. We keep doing the same thing expecting different results!!!

Many are apathetic. Basically accepting the idea that nothing changes. and we can do nothing. Self defeatism. How to get them to engage is the question.

Sarah Palin walked onto the stage when she first appeared as candidate for vice President, she immediately changed the atmosphere. What she said was so right on and HOPE sprang up in the hearts of many. She was hindered by McCain's handlers. The tea party is the outcome of this hope.

IT CAN BE DONE. Sarah CAN DO IT! WILL SHE? ATTACKS ON HER FROM EVERY POSSIBLE SOURCE AND THE MAJORITY OF THE NEWS MEDIAS COMPROMISED HER IN EVERY WAY POSSIBLE. STUPID! A QUITTER! ETC.! SHE HAS A YOUNG FAMILY AT HOME. HER FAMILY IS VERY MUCH AFFECTED BY HER BEING A MAJOR CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT SENATOR, ETC.

A DIFFICULT DECISION AND TIME FOR SARAH.

GOD BLESS SARAH AND HER FAMILY, GOD BLESS AMERICA. LET US TURN TO GOD IN FAITH.

“I see what you are getting at, but I dissagree that there is a compramising brigade anywhere near the base of the conservative movement...”

Click on my name and read the past three days of posts/replies.

We at FR are pretty much the conservative base. How many people do you see giving me hell for saying that we should never vote RINO and how many are demanding we do?

I think that pretty much backs up my statement. Especially when there are a number of Freepers who have been hammered by these psuedocons for the same thing.

We have to face the fact that we collectively are not the conservative base we once were. We are lousy with moderates and worse claiming to be what they aren’t.

We say YES, but sadly it will never get through the senate due to harry reid. Maybe if we can shed him & his influence on the Senate, we might be able to get something through. It is up to the people of Nevada to rid the US of this menace to our body politic!

Good point...

Maybe I should have said that the “base” (conservative) on the surface is shrinking, in both numbers and people actively pursuing issues and politicians and holding their feet to the fire...Therefore we see less influence the true conservatives have and the increasing malaise and moderation demonstrated by the republican party elites and leadership...

We see everyday the feckless compramising that is turning off so many people to the process, that the only thing we have left are the elections...

And even those are under attack by those who wish to destroy the last fabric of choice we do have in this country...Once they take away the credibility of elections, what are we left with???

Hehehe, I’ll let folks decide what the answer to that is...

There I go dangling a patarticiple again...;-)

I hope this clears up any ambiguity I may have posted in the past...
